uh.... back in new york which is both a good thing and a bad thing, but the best thing is that i went to ny gifts today, and picked up a stemless natural US Tube with me and my roommate. 7mm. also got a Kristian Merwin slide, and he's an artist i've never heard of but the slide is so heady and i got it for fairly cheap. ny gifts is THE spot. seriously. i rep them hard haha. anyway. pictures. THICK JOINTS. 4 hole waffle? i don't know what this thing is but it bubbes so much! different then the toro. i like it though. very nice. thick base, which is important in any tube haha. i dig the label on there too. this built in ashcatcher thing? sadly doesn't catch ash very well, but it does add for some nice diffusion. i might just bring my toro trashcatcher to here and leave the LEAR at home. ah decisions. onto the heady slide. i was going to pick up a saltini for 95, which i thought was a pretty good deal, but my friends talked me out of it because they don't really appreciate name glass artists, but whatever haha. this bowl does look way better for the piece. i was blinded by the name. Kristian Merwin. Super nice dude. love the black joint too. don't have to clean it as often. this slide was very hard to photograph, especially the marble. it has a little something in it that is very reflective and kind of creates a prism in the right light. weird. also got the stock US tubes ice pinch that came with the piece. i like the black handle. jesus alright megapost. and also some milk of course. in the dorm now though so i can't really show you how fat the rips are. have to blow out the window.
