Awesome new Article from Joe @

Life Less Common


Ahhhh, the feeling of having an unlit Arturo Fuente Opus X in one’s hand and the time to smoke it. This amazing combination is magical. Rarely do I smoke an Opus, but I am on the path to changing that. Many cigar shops only get the Opus only a few times a year, but mine has it year round thanks to a long friendship between the owner and Carlito Fuente. I started smoking Fuentes when I started smoking cigars… they were my go to smokes along with Oliva Serie Gs. The Opus was out of my price range until I got a decent job. Eventually I started working as a tobacconist and I could afford to smoke the Opus, but I still have the mindset that they are unattainable. I grind my teeth in frustration at paying thirteen dollars for my favorite Opus size, but have no qualms paying thirteen…

2011 in review

The stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for this blog.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Sydney Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

The Thirsty Wench

I really got a kick out of hearing about this.  Reader Mike Townsend just graduated to a dead author “mug club” at Bukowski’s Tavern in Boston.  The Challenge? Drink 136 beers in 180 days.  You have to pay for the drinks yourself and the beers you drink will be marked down on a card.  At the end of it all he recieved a GIANT custom beer mug that will have his graduate number and the name of the dead author of his choice (in his case Alexander Dumas).

After hearing about this I looked in to mug clubs and it really is an interesting concept.  Set up by individual craft beer bars and brewpubs, the challenge basically is to drink every beer on the menu over the course of a set time (the average has been from 6-12 months) and at the end they receive a custom mug and benefits…
