Tokermon Tuesday # 74

Tokermon Tuesday time… here’s your Tokermon… Meet Guyrilla. This Tokermon is a slouching, knuckle dragging oaf that is forever in search of candy. You can see if there is a Guyrilla in the garden by leaving sweets out when the lights go out. If all the candy is gone, you can bet it was taken by Guyrilla (or a stoned gardener with the munchies).

Everybody Loves a Good Screw

Sometimes its the little things…

I am currently working on a new pipe called the Yankee Inhaler. (to see why, read How I Met The Yankee Inhaler)

I made sample pipes for testing and proceeded to smoke lots of weed through those prototypes. These wood pipes required a screen in the bowl so I purchased a sack of those headshop standards, unchanged since their inception in the 70s… the brass pipe screen.

The brass screen worked but there were issues. The primary issue was a clogged screen. I was forced to pry out the screen often to clear the built up resin (i.e. burn, flick, reinsert screen). That process revealed the next issue… getting the fucking screen outa the bowl so I could clean it. It didn’t take long for that brass screen to develop a large hole that released a bowlful of ash onto my tongue.

If I was going to make an easy to use, no nonsense wooden pipe, I would need to address the screen problem. An exhaustive internet search did reveal some interesting possibilities but I was able to dismiss them for my application as they were way too expensive. The “glass” screens were no good as well, falling out of the bowl when ash was tapped out.

Then I stumbled on Smokin’ Screws.

Basically a stainless steel wire twisted into a funnel funnel shape, the Smokin’ Screw takes the common pipe screen to the next level. The wire is pretty thick resulting in a long lasting, easy to handle insert for many pipes. With a handy handle extending out of the bowl, this “screen” is easy to grab for quick cleaning.

The inventor is definitely a smoker. The design of the Smokin’ Screen is simple yet extremely effective. The website claims “…its vortex design creates a swirling column of air and fire that releases the oils of every last bit of leaf.” I don’t know about any of that but I do know weed burns better with one of these screens. Just yank out the screen after a few bowls and take a look. If there is any build-up, a lighter will burn it off lickety-split. Flick the Smokin’ Screen to free to ash and reinsert into your bowl.

I urge you to check out the Smokin’ Screws website []. You can purchase the screws directly from the website and they will be shipped very quickly. The Smokin’ Screw will make the Yankee Inhaler a better product and I plan to include one with every pipe.

Tokermon Tuesday # 72

Hooray for Tokermon Tuesday, Hooray. For this week’s Tokermon I figured I go for that dill flavored, brine soaked Pickell. This half sour Tokermon spends most of its life in a barrel. If you see a Pickell in the garden, I bet there’s a Reuben sandwich nearby.

Tokermon Tuesday # 70

Another summertime Tuesday. The Tokermon for today is Broot. You’ll find Broot glistening with suntan oil and kicking sand in the faces of the weaker Tokermon. When a mirror is nearby, Broot will flex those massive arms and utter a series of grunts.

Reliable Bud Celebrates Cannapendence Day

If you haven’t been to one of these Reliable Bud events, you are missing out. As a cannabis enthusiast for over 40 years, the road to legalization has been a long one. Even though weed is legal, it is still somewhat hard to find resources or product. Reliable Bud events strip away all of the stigma and brings the Cannabis Lifestyle to the people. A Reliable Bud event offers education, entertainment and, of course, lots and lots of cannabis. Check out this video to see some of the fun:

Reliable Bud has done an incredible job bringing the Cannabis industry to Massachusetts. When at a Reliable Bud event, the freedom to enjoy cannabis in all its many forms is the primary goal, however, there is so much more.

Reliable Bud will be bringing more events to the Spencer Fairgrounds including the Maui Wowie Luau on August 18th. I’ll see you there.

Tokermon Tuesday # 69

Tuesday’s Tokermon has arrived. Meet Tripole, the three legged walker in the pot patch searching for anything in threes. If you place three of anything near a Tripole, all three will disappear in three minutes and three little brown pellets will be left behind. Could Tripole and Drono be related?
