Occupied. Or is it preoccupied..?


  • News Of The World was my first Queen purchase back in the day, I can still listen to it and love it except We Will Rock You/Champions is overplayed to the point of 'Nope. Pass' and gets skipped. Very very diverse album, from soft ballady (All Dead…
  • I work for a LARGE finance company, the customer system uses InfoLease software...no GUI. For perspective, I first worked with this software in 1996, and it looked old then. I'm sure when we hire IT guys and they see it they must have similar re…
  • Recently read a 'post apocalypse' type novel, where America was in civil war about 50 years out from now. One of the big dangers was the sky being full of armed drones, that targeted humans, that the owners had lost control of and were wandering ta…
  • @AlexDeGruven said: @BobbyDigi said: "I got a really good feeling about this" AHAHAHA I LOVE IT! That was really great. Said without a shred of irony. I wonder if this is going to finish d…
  • Sheaffer Snorkels c. 1952-1959. The Fiesta Red, the Sage Green, and the (clear) demonstrator are considered rare.

  • Have literally a couple dozen more 40's-50's-60's mostly Sheaffer pens, but still working on organizing and displaying. Did get a couple of cool desk sets in. Parker Model 4, c.1957 Sputnik! Where are you! And an old 1940's or maybe ev…

  • Just make sure you report your net profits to the Feds on your taxes, that's where it has the most potential to get ugly (other than making stupid decisions and losing your shorts trading), sounds like you are keeping excellent records which is eith…
  • And just as annoyed when they're destroyed in 11 minutes, because cardboard
  • I forgot to add my Pelikan in the first post. Pelikan is a very well received and old German brand. Mine is a recent limited edition Ocean Swirl model M805 with a medium nib. Nib is 18K gold, plated with rhodium. M800's have gold trim, M805's ch…

  • The Safari is also, along with the Pilot Metropolitan, one of the general top 3 recommended for a beginner to fountain pens, in the ~$20-25 range. I forget the other offhand. Your calligraphy model probably has a different nib than a typical wri…

  • So, those were the 'new' ones, now I have a few vintage pieces. Most of these are restored, and I will ink them and use them, with one BIG exception. But I've just acquired them, so for now this is a very preliminary 'show and tell' with no writin…

  • Nothing to see here. Starting a fountain pens thread somewhere else :P
  • @BuddyJ I'm flying out today for a week. When I get back there should be about a dozen boxes on my desk lol. Mostly old Sheaffers, in particular Snorkels, but anyways I'll start a thread and post some pics if there isn't one up by then. Most ex…
  • No pics, but been a bit of a watch orgy in the past month. Tudor Black Bay Black (in house) Rolex Explorer 214270 Hamilton Pan Europ - GREEN, yeah I'd never seen one. It's awesome Seiko SUN063 was under the tree. Finally got my GMT. From rea…
  • Yeah, nice GMT. I'm kinda sorta in the market for one. Would love a BNLR, and might actually be able to make it happen in the spring. Most recent acquisition, Tudor Black Bay, with in house mvmnt. About a month ago, still in love.
  • Ahahahahaha that's the worst thing I ever recorded, at least that got released anwhere public, and I had totally mind wiped it from my consciousness. You should see the smile on my face right now. Thanks for remembering, I didn't think any of my o…
  • Pete Thorn, who is a well respected session guy and internet gear promoter and who originated from here in Edmonton, toured with Cornell 2007-2010 and continued to be his friend. This is not for everyone, but he shares some of his memories. Nothin…
  • MT, there's a shot somewhere where Kong's finger pulls her top down a little :P wtf, I never even heard of King Kong Lives (1986) before. Musta been a real award winner.
  • I've been only very sporadically interested in watches the last couple of years, my interests do change rather frequently. So I hadn't been very excited about any of the new releases until I came across the Bulova Moonwatch. Aaaaand Mrs keto put o…
  • Turns out it's not quite as original as I thought. I all along suspected the seats weren't, but was told first they were. Definitely recovered, but a pretty nice job. Headliner and dash probably at the same time, not as nicely. But I'll leave in…

  • @UPSLynx said: 2016 has been an absolutely awful year, ESPECIALLY for music. We've lost Prince, Bowie, and Lemmy. Also, Alan Rickman, and pro wrestler Chyna just 12 hours ago. WTF is going on And many others, Lonnie Mack was in the pa…
  • If you need inspiration, there's a F@H site song around here somewhere Maybe. OK it was for s-m. And I haven't seen or heard it for years.
  • (spaghetti shovel dot gif) I have the wierdest bonrar right now.
  • ^ dirty old man mode....ENGAGE
  • S-M long sleeved crew hit the 'donate' bin this week. Maybe it too will be an artifact some day.
  • Half Life, the original. Note, I haven't played any cosole-only games. Civ5 gets the value per dollar award, I'm approaching 2k hours :X
