^oh, in that case it was in 2003 :D

MoJoRiSin 01-03-2009 04:41 PM

at least not since the 70's except for
Inspector Clouseau

Mon homme has a couple of pipes, one plain and one fancy (carved as a lion's head -- I gave it to him). He prefers a cigar, though, and last smoked one of his pipes back in the summer time when it was possible to sit outdoors. I love the smell of pipe tobacco -- in truth most forms of burning tobacco, including some cigarette tobaccos, smell great to me.

Back in the eighties it was not unusual to find a woman smoking a delicate "ladies' pipe" filled with some peach-scented tobacco or similar burning confection. I have not seen a lady smoke a pipe in public since then; I suspect the lynching starts well before I arrive on the scene.

Long time. Maybe my dad when I was little?

I have a corduroy jacket of his that still has little flakes of tobacco in the pockets.

Oh, and in Isengard...

Brynn 01-04-2009 11:22 PM

Uh oh...not the Isengard song not that no :eek:

Thinking quickly here - okay new QOTD:

Are you (generally speaking)
Always early?
Always late?
Or on time?

lukkucairi 01-05-2009 12:13 AM

pipe: a friend smokes one irregularly, so about a month ago at a party

early, late, or on time?

for friends who tend to be late, I don't worry about being early or on time

for business meetings, I'm exactly on time

for travel, I leave early.

for my shrink, I pay attention to whether I get to her office on time - it tells me what kind of week I've had :p

zero 01-05-2009 12:26 PM

i'm never late unless i've been struck by lightning or something. i HAT it and it drives me FVCKKEN MENATAL when people are late. late ness is disrespectful. don't be so useless, a little forward planning's all it takes.

Brynn 01-05-2009 07:22 PM

^that's funny :) :) :)

Jack Flanders 01-06-2009 03:01 AM

Early to the point of driving others crazy. Thank you Dad!!! :)

Newest ? 1.6.09 If you could bring 2 books and 2 movies with you into an isolated compound (bed and board included) with great lighting, a roaring fireplace and a fantastic media center what would they be and why?

YsaPur EsChomuw 01-06-2009 04:39 AM

1. I used to arrive early, but not any more. I'm usually on time. Sometimes I'm late, due to unexpected circumstances.

2. Films:
Rosenkrantz and Guildenstern are Dead
The Big Blue
Tad Williams: Otherland (because it's good and loooong)
Nemes Nagy Ágnes: Collected Poems (in Hungarian, of course)

Coffee 01-06-2009 12:42 PM

Books: "How things work", and "The anarchist's cookbook"...just in case I need to escape from "the isolated compound".

Films: A couple pornos in case I can't escape from "the isolated compound'.

This is hard.

Movies: I think Bladerunner and maybe something like Hiroshima, Mon Amor or La Jetée.

Books...a good world poetry anthology, maybe A Book of Luminous Things, and a book which I will decline to specify that it is more like the Bible than anything else I can think of.

These are not necessarily my most favorite ones, but they are the ones I think I could continue to get something out of after several hundred times.

Hyakujo's Fox 01-06-2009 09:21 PM

Escaping from Isolated Compounds, Vols I & II


Inexhaustable big fat fiction would be the way to go, so Bleak House & The Brothers Karamazov.

2001: A Space Odyssey (because I'd never completely fathom it) and Groundhog Day (because I'd watch it everyday)

MoJoRiSin 01-06-2009 09:25 PM

^groundhog day is my favorite movie
:) :) :) :) :) :) :) :) :)

trisherina 01-07-2009 02:29 AM

If I don't get to leave the isolated compound ever again, I guess a good dictionary and City Boy. Entertainment centre, can I just have the entire collection of Norman McLaren shorts? That'll be fine.

All of the above if taking into consideration several timezones and/or "soft" time! :)

In single timezones, more like late....

**** New Q for 07012009 ****

¿ From where
[country /-ies, world region(s), (sub-)culture(s), ....]
do you think / believe / imagine / hope will come the major influence on "global culture" the next decades ?

Stephi_B 01-07-2009 10:21 AM

oops, oversaw the lastest question
(my answers: books -- Lord of the Rings & The Alchimist; films: Berlin calling & Momo)
& cannot edit it....

all the movers and shakers these days are saying that auchtermuchty will emerge as the cultural epicentre of the 21st century. in fact i was there recently and can report that it may have already begun.

Coffee 01-07-2009 12:54 PM

I vote for Jamaica!

Oh ja mon!

YsaPur EsChomuw 01-07-2009 01:08 PM

I think Facebook, but I hope: no.

The internet already has a large share, things like twitter, somethingawful, etc.

lukkucairi 01-07-2009 01:17 PM


The Mongolians are organizing on Facebook. I myself already belong to several Mongolian Facebook Groups. Welcome your new cultural overlords, weaklings :)

Stephi_B 01-07-2009 02:01 PM

^YES!! :D (I do have a weakness for Ural-Altaic riders as is well known by now ;))
Plus Ulaanbator is said to have more internet cafes than inhabitants, so....

I think China, India, Indonesia, Singapur, Mongolia (of course!!), maybe UAE and even Iran.... that whole "corner" -- will send out the big vibes, maybe even some pan-Asian culture-amalgam thingie.

I have a super-cool handbag of Chinese brand btw :)

Frieda 01-07-2009 08:00 PM

south american rainforest. keywords are pure, non-industrialized, colorful and organic.

for fashion: pristine, still 2 more years of north pole to come. uggs are becoming really too 2006 right now so fashion shifts to big hats, hunter caps of organic material, ear muffs, and also light pink and green lipstick (think 90's ski lip balm for every day use). wear white with a color of your choice to combine, use different white pieces of clothing with each a different texture and maybe a yellow bracelet to finish it off.

lukkucairi 01-07-2009 08:53 PM

^ dammit, and I just broke down and finally bought a pair of uggs yesterday as they're really the best playa footwear ever invented :p

I'll be sooooo 2006 *sigh*

Frieda 01-07-2009 08:59 PM

^oh, just add led lights and you'll be fine again :D and there's plenty of room to attach a small solar panel on the toes of your boots to make the leds run all night long :)

Coffee 01-08-2009 12:55 PM
