Have you ever sent a letter to someone who influenced you, by sending naturally, a genuine hand-written discourse speaking of your shared interests? Many a historic relationships between gentlemen began this way. I have not as I have not yet been acquainted with such a persons with whom I feel I could have satisfactory discourse for such a candid thing.

I am an active pen pal writer and I have yet to write to someone high-profile. However I used to be close friends with a well-known electronic artist when he was still starting out, as we used to be bedroom producers. Now he's touring around and all yet I haven't contacted him closely for a long time.

There is nobody I could send something like that to without them thinking I'm super weird.

Maybe my grandparents but they're super dead.

I was in the process of writing one such letter to Steve Ditko when he died. Not one of those obnoxious spiderman letters people would send, but one showing appreciation for the ideas put fourth in his independently published works and how they had influenced my thinking. I had put the letter off for some time before finally deciding to pick it up again and then two days later the news of his death broke. My advice, if you're gonna send one of these letters, don't wait.




Shaving tools Sophisticated Gentleman 12/05/09(Wed)01:20 No. 773 [Reply]

Say gentlemen, what is your shaving tool of choice? Is it perhaps the shaving knife, a safety razor or is it possibly one of those hideous modern multi blade type of razors?

I myself have recently bought a safety razor, model Merkur 34c and so far im very content with it.

The picture is of course related.

Different razors are different, but which you prefer is kind of individual, so it's hard to make recommendations. I've used the cheapest razors from a couple different companies, and they were perfect sufficient, so whatever you pick is probably fine.

Get a few brands of blades while you're at it--those make a difference too, but again it's an individual preference kind of thing.

Am wondering about Low-end nicotine cigarettes. None of this e-cig bullshit; I like the light and softness of a real cigarette, but I'm looking to cut down on the nicotine and tar content. --- anyone help me out?

I remember when a classmate took back some smokes from trip in China. That was probably the weakest crap ever - felt like I was smoking nothing.
>>3001
Camel Blue is big in terms on nicotine. I think, where they are supposed to white how much there is in a pack - they got to be shitting me. Sometimes a pack would last a little more than a week, where any regular Winston pack make do for just a few days.
Individual taste aside, me and my buddy, way back, started smoking those about the same time, and easily escalated to some high octane crap.

I now smoke rolling tobacco, and I would have to say it's probably the best option next to menthols in terms of taste and next to Chinese in terms of nicotine. Tar bar is all over the place, but you can compare different sticks by just looking at what's left at mouth end of it - the blacker the worse.

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/06/22(Wed)07:42 No. 3177

Just roll your own, and use GOOD tobacco. Or switch to a pipe.

Also, you can mix other herbs with your tobacco, and even if you don't cut down, oh well, you cut your stuff, lol. Blue lotus is a nice addition, and so is California poppy

Well, I don't think he's that good. But he is famous to go against the traditional standards of art at the moment with the Dada movement, to prove that even a toilet would be considered art.

the toilet in the above photo was originally rejected from the show, until they found out who the artist that crated it really was.

I love physical activity, I love playing games and running around.

This being said, I am not very fit although I would like to be.

I'm interested in some sports but don't know how to get into them. The two main ones are Rugby and Boxing (do not want to compete though).

How should I get into these? Should I just look for amateur leagues/boxing classes?

Thanks for your time!

As someone very much so into boxing for the past few years I can give some basic tips for first starting on what you need to go buy. Its a short list.

1. Gloves, I use Title gloves and at the $40 price range these gloves have lasted me 2 solid years and are still holding strong. $20 gloves will hurt your hands due to cheap construction.
2. Jump rope, buy a $5 jump rope and get very used to using it all the time.
3. Wraps or wrap gloves. Buy either the proper boxing wraps that are 180 inches long and watch a video on youtube to learn to properly wrap. Or get some everlast or title wrap gloves with the gel in the front. I've used a pair of the everlast evergels for the past year and love it.
4. Buy a heavy bag or join a boxing gym. While their gloves may be unfortunately underwhelming, Everlast does make a good basic heavy bag that lasts a while, remember to wrap the bottom half in duct tape to protect the stitching and stop sand from settling. OR join a real "boxing gym", not a commercial gym. 24 Hour doesn't have bags and they don't have experienced trainers. A traditional boxing gym will probably be lower in price as well depending on your area.

I hope some of this helps your choice in joining the wonderful world of boxing and punching each other in the ring for fun and money.

Literally two of the worst sports you could pick. Head concussions can literally ruin your life in one unfortunate accident.

What is a gentleman's religion/belief?
Does a gentleman share such things?
What is the key element that defines a gentleman, mentally/emotionally?

A gentleman is person who can love and to be kind. I myself is Christian, yet to others if you can love then you are a gentleman

Sophisticated Gentleman 16/08/28(Sun)22:24 No. 3198

The decent discussion of religion and politics has been driven out of the public sphere by contemporary barbarians. There is no reasonable discourse any longer. The new Atheists of today miss the entire point, but moreso they fail to realize how many times their exact argument has been made before, often by the religions members, in the case of St Thomas Aquinas and Catholicism.

Really I was personally an atheist for a very long time until I actually studied theology and history. I've found current dialogues to be distasteful and even militant against religion. Specifically Christianity. It's never against Hinduism, or Shinto or anything else. Its only Christianity. I personally blame the lack of thoroughbred response from the Christian community, I partially blame protestants for their mega churches, and utter trivialization of the faith. This belief gap so to speak, has led to militant atheism, and outright disrespect and dismissal of religion, even saying its child abuse to be raised in a religious family.

It was really weird making the turn around from Atheist to Catholicism. But its been positive.

I havent been to 7chan in awhile, so hopefully I won't be too swiftly ridiculed.

I wish the best for all of you

I can appreciate that. I always had a greater appreciation for someone like Penn Gillette as opposed to Richard Dawkins. I have always been Catholic at least to one degree or another. Although because of how much I have had to move over the course of my childhood along with the rest of my family not going to the mass with me, I have relatively few Catholic friends so I have grown to accept that a true gentleman should be open enough to spend time with and discuss important matters with those who may not agree with them, but have the capacity for rational discussion.

Just bought my first pipe from an antique shop. Looks nice, needs some cleaning though. Did I do good?

Finding a new pipe stem is pretty easy.
But a new pipe is always a nice thing to have.
If you're able, keep atleast two or three pipes on hand, that way you'll be able let them rest after you've smoked them.
My father had a pipe for every day of the week, but you can get my with two or three as long as you smoke them in a rotation.

I bought a corncob pipe, and today I'm going to get some Captain Black, white or gold. Whichever I find just to try it out. It seems so peaceful, pipesmoking, so i figured I'd try it.

If it was bought at an antique shop and needs cleaning then I am not sure that "breaking it in" is what it needs. I once bought an old used yellobole (it was made before they startedmade them out of sawdust and glue) and it's only real downside is that the shank material becomes sticky if you get too much saliva on it.

I'll be either getting my grandfathers western hat he wore as a sheriff steamed and fitted, or i'll purchase a new one. I'm a Texan so it seems fitting and won't be very out of place. I hope you all take your hats off when going inside.
