    It's been a bit...

    ...since I was last here. Not sure what motivated me to check in today after so long, but it soothed my soul to see things haven't changed too much here, even if they've changed alot everywhere else. Typically I would feel like I wasted a day if I spent it sitting in front of a computer, but I...

    Frosty's new song

    Worked on another song this weekend: http://soundcloud.com/a-frost/the-coming-storm-1 I apologize in advance if anyone's ears are left bleeding :lol: Just wanted to share since it's what I've been doing with the wee bit of free time I manage to steal for myself and I haven't checked in with...

    Worked on this one this weekend

    http://soundcloud.com/a-frost/still-here Worked on song in the above link this weekend. It's a nice cheesy power ballad type thing. The vocals could stand to be redone and the drums sorta suck as usual, but it'll do ok for a one man basement job. Let me know what you think or if you've got any...

    Making music

    Hey all. Feeling guilty since I haven't been on much lately and I've had severaly PMs from brothers checking in, which of course makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside, so I figured I'd make a post to at least show that I didn't just dissapear into another dimension or something (one can only...

    G&H Scotch Flake

    Any other fans of this tobacco? I've been smoking the heck outta this stuff since receiving a generous helping from another BoB. It's not terribly complex, but has an excellent flavor and scent in the bowl as well as a great tin and room note. Nice virginias, very smooth. Topped/cased (i...

    Favorite blends - how much is "enough"?

    If/when you discover or decide on a blend which in your opinion is worthy of stocking or cellaring, either as a hedge against future shortages, for aging purposes, just because it's a favorite or whathaveyou; how do you determine how much you want to stash away? Do you have a target quantity...

    Santa impostor alert

    There is a brazen impostor lurking around this forum, performing random acts of gift giving and generosity. I am sure he will not be happy when i reveal his true identity, but nonetheless i must proceed for the benefit of my brethren. Be forewarned and don't get fooled like I did. Now i'm stuck...

    Things to do in Zurich (and maybe the rest of Europe too)

    We are taking a trip in June to visit my brother & sister in law in Zurich for two weeks. I've never really been out of the country before except for Aruba on our honeymoon so I'm pretty excited. I'm sure my in laws will have plenty to keep us entertained but I thought perhaps you fine folks...

    Storage Upgrade!

    Today I went from this: To this! My wife was out shopping today with a friend and ended up in a consignment furniture shop. She knew I was wanting a curio type thing, saw this for $125 and sent me a pic. A few hours later we were haulin' it home in the back of her old man's Ford...

    Epiphany/Revelation

    A comparrison review of C&D Epiphany and Revelation Smoking Mixture. Epiphany is a blend presnted by C&D as being similar to Revelation. The Revelation came to me by way of a sharp eye towards the shelves during a visit to a B&M store in maryland, and the Epiphany came to me by way of a generous...

    Proud of my "little" brother

    Just wanted to take a moment to share my admiration for my little brother, Tim. When we were growing up, he was just a chubby little kid that used to get hassled about his weight. Through highschool we were both pretty miserable and dealt alot with depression and family issues and such. Things...

    JKP - Photo presentation

    Cracked a tin and tried Jackknife Plug for the first time this evening and felt like taking some photos to mark the occasion. Not a review...just a presentation to commemorate the occasion, entertain myself and hopefully share a little bit of the unique, elegantly simplistic beauty of the...

    Anyone else NOT like to dry their tobacco before smoking?

    This has been bugging me a bit recently and I wanted to hear some input from others. I see countless references to letting tobacco that is too moist dry out before smoking. I get it and all, but I have yet to findy any tobacco but the most goopy aromatics (which I probably wouldnt smoke and...
