    FInally got a pic off my phone. This is Caber, my 11 ish foot Burmese Python male (Python bivittatus, now recognized as it's own species, rather than a subspecies of the Indian python (Python molurus) beforehand it was known as the 'Python molurus bivittatus). Caber is the Scottish word for log, and, when he's content, he doesn't move much, so 'log' it is! I have had this 'little guy' since he was born, or, a couple weeks after, and he is 17 this year. Males are much smaller than females, but my female burm' died a few years ago breaking her neck trying to escape the shoddy cage that the previous owner gave me (she was a rescue, as he couldn't tolerate or work with a 20 foot snake weighing around 260 pounds, or feeding her, which did take half a dozen or more 10+ pound rabbits). I love snakes, and always have, and always will. I've had a snake my entire life since I was about 8, and much to my parents chagrin. I plan on breeding the Reticulated pythons I have now, (Python reticulatus) as they aren't illegal (as burms are, thanks to the SNAFU in Florida, the whole damned country gets to suffer). Ironic, Burms are very nice snakes, and Retics are a bit more skittish and flighty. But whatever, I've had my boy Burm since before that crap-tastic situation in Florida, and if it ever comes to pass they are totally made illegal to the point of eradication, they gunna have to fight me tooth and nail to pry my boy away from me. He is as close to having a child as I will ever get, and, in my opinion, much better than a child for a laundry list of reasons... Liiiike here's a fun fact, did you know they can live about as long as a human? RAD ASS!!! Love this boy-o!!!

    Favorite bowls

    The big picture (left to right): *My favorite 'edgy' bowl, came with my Kamanja, still rockin' it the most of any bowl I have *Alien Phunnel (Sickly Alien green cuz' I had to!) *Random crap unglazed pseudo-phunnel for my SB Pirate's Cave meerschaum-esque bowl (still adopting colors nicely, smells quite strong these days) *U.F.O. Bowl in the now extinct 'Blue Rutile' color scheme (which was my favorite he's done so far) *Trio of male Lebanese bowls (these things rock!!) *80feet Bowl in Black and Blue (looks familiar, right?? Like, maybe someone else has this same bowl/color scheme in this thread even! lolz) *Harmony in Blue Rutile *A.O.T. Bowl in orange, which is hard to find!! I won that ON THIS FORUM ---- BOOOOOM and 'Thanks so much, Nima!!!!' and a quick pick of my four Hookah John bowls. Overpriced, but at least they are solid and reliable!!

    switching things up, but only one piece at a time.. Still puffin' on my platymanja, (if the platypus had a hookah, it'd be a platinum kamanja :3 ) but I switched over the jumbo base from my other KM just to see what it did to my 'go-to...' I think 'Dude' said it best: "THUNDEROUS CLOUDS." Holy s-balls batman, this is unreal!!! I didn't think it made that much of a difference, but geeze!!! Definitely considering a jumbo for my Starbuzz short Atlantis Ice... It's hard to find a base (boho or otherwise) that's not got gold on it... Never been a fan of gold... Black and gold is nice, but not for a SILVER hookah.... 2x Titanium flats (going to get cubes from now on, though I'm a 'one and done' kinda guy, when I do wanna go again, another set of cubes just goes too far, so flats would be perfect there)... Alien, Lotus, sili hose, Cloud 9 Cherry (maraschino). Any questions? :3 Diggin' this... Upgrading Kamanja base soon!!

    Smoking that custom 'shop blend' "Solo" from my Hookah Barn place (only hookah bar left in Oly, hope the smoking 21+ FDA crap doesn't happen up here too, or they will close, so sayeth the manager :/ ) out of my platy kamanja again... It's got the widest draw, and easiest to clean. My Syrian Prince/Dark Prince, whatever you wanna call it (also a KM) has a restricted draw, maybe it's just the hose port and I can bore it out some to fix it.... I've noticed that the medium sized hookahs seem to have the best draws though. It's definitely shifting my gears on what hookahs I want!!! Oh yeah, to complete the mental pics, I'm using 2x coco lava (not my favorite, just got a box of 'em left to kill), my lotus, and Alien bowl, my sili hose, and rockin' out the the metal tribute to the cantina song on youtube. I love that there's a dood smoking hookah in the star wars scene this song is from, made my day!! may the force be with ya'll!!

    Puffin' on some delicious Al Waha Bahraini Molasses, chopped up finer (very coarse stuff, Al Waha) and through my go-to KM Platy Kamanja with my sili hose out of a standard Egyptian Bowl, testing out a box of Coco Lava cubes (not bad!!) Considering a Starbuzz Atlantis Ice hookah. Especially if I get this second job!! ;3 Anyone got/tried the Atlantis Ice? Different draws from the short vs. the tall? Thanks hookah peeps!!

    finishing off the last of my nasties... Fantasia's raspberry kamikaze mixes well with starbuzz lebanese bombshell, weirdly enough... Like raspberry pipe tobacco that's been stored in a cedar box... Fookin' odd... But fairly tasty, somehow... This will kill the last of my fantasia, and that was the goal!! Still got some 'adjustments' to do to the Lebanese hookah, so it's outta my go-to Kamanja. Love that pipe!!

    I am totally on-board with you there!! I've had maybe a dozen flavors of theirs, and they all not only dissipate in flavor extra quick, but aside from that 'novelty shop' feel to them, I've just not been impressed enough to continue smoking their stuff. I miss Tangier's. I miss Nakhla. I miss Al Fakher. All of those require 2+ hour road trips, but it's going to happen. I like this Cloud 9 stuff, it's flavors are a bit milder, but they last a good long while for me... Normally I'm a 'one and done' set of coals kinda guy, but I do two sets for all the Cloud 9 at the Hookah Barn because I don't have to play with the coals, get it going, leave 'em alone, when the flavor dies you rotate the coals and start all over again. It takes two sets for me to circle the bowl (they don't use Lotus's there, but I'm not complaining, you need to know how to manage just foil and charcoals, I just love the even heat distribution of the Lotus so much...) I love this forum :3

    ...well, not RIGHT NOW, but here very soon, headed to the Hookah Barn to meet up with my frands... Gunna mix Cloud 9 Tangerine with their 'skittles' flavor (what everyone calls it there, I think it's their 'Fruit Blast' flave). Standard KM, gonna buy a box of their cubes that they use, really low odor/flavor so that got my attention last time... Also going to pick up 100 grams of the Tangerine and 50 of a couple more flavors. Also going to see if the guy will order me in the 'Bazinga' flavor, as I'm a lime junkie... Enjoy the clouds!

    DOOD!!! DOOOOOD!!! Just got back from my only hookah bar in this city... "Hookah Barn" deserves HUGE props from this guy, because because they carry Cloud 9 shisha, which is new for me, but as I looked into it, was AMAZED with their info!!! First off, this hookah bar is the cheapest costing hookah bar I've ever been to!! I am so stoked I can't even...!!! SECONDLY: ONLY KM HOOKAHS!!! I mean, they got a couple of Shika's, but I asked him his honest opinion about them, and he said they have slightly narrower downstems which will reduce the draw, and that bummed me out!!! Soooo gunna get an Omar chiller next, and forego the Shika a bit (well, at least the three diff. models he had...) THIRDLY: I tried their Tangerine which was SUPER AMAZING!!! I am a tangerine fan, and after recently losing my flavor ENTIRELY for SB Tangerine Dream (I didn't even smoke it often, so my 'you smoke it too often so you don't like it anymore' theory went completely out the window..) Finally: My two hookah buddies showed up and we smoked the Manager's Mix called "Solo" which was Orange Gummy Bear, Mango, and Blueberry (with a cooling agent, so Cloud 9's 'Blue Mist' variant, which is WAY better than the AF Blueberries with Mint and SB Blue Mist).... The clouds were intense... The flavor lasted 1.5 hours, and usually, SB, Fumari, hell, even Social Smoke has a hard time keeping it's flavor for more than an hour, at least with me... But I bought a 50g bag of the Solo because I gots peoples that needs to try it!!! And since they sell it there, I DONT HAVE TO DRIVE TO OREGON FOR SHISHA ANYMORE!!!! BWAHHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAAAAAHAAAAA Yeah. That's all I got. Been busy looking for an additional job to pay additional bills, and I gotta get a car and $1500 in tools to join my buddies carpenter union crap... Oh the joys of spending exorbitant amounts of money on things I dont want but need... All I want is that black Omar Chiller Hookah now... Sigh, I can make it happen, somehow!!! Lolz G'night hookah forumites!!!!

    Dood, smoking with buddies is the best way to go!!! The frands I do smoke with have their own hookah, so we usually have two going, and it's really nice to catch up, hang out, eat snacks & smoke... I miss the social elements I had back in Idaho, such a cool scene to just chill and chat... But hey, at least I got you guys, too!! For the record though, I definitely smoke alone 99.5% of the time!! lolz

    Dudewhere'syourhookahdude? I do smoke cloves... It's my last major, terrible-for-me vice.. So I'm interested in trying that, for sure!! Hey forumites!!! Is there anybody in Oregon, Idaho, Montana, or Northern California that would be willing to work with me on obtaining some shishas? In 2009 they passed a stupid law up here that wasn't enforced until this year, but now no one ships shishas to Washington without a tobacco license... So I need to get a license, or find some 'local' friends. I'm hoping this 'friend' or 'friends' will let me give them money, have them buy me my shisha, plus a flavor or two for my 'mule' (I'm from Utah, it's a term of affection there), and then I come down to meet up and obtain my shisha, smoke out with my Mule, and head back North. I will be finishing up my Chopper soon, so the Western United States will be my backyard. I care nothing for long trips when I'm on a bike or a board. I am addicted to the following that I cannot get up here reliably anymore: Tangier's, Starbuzz, Nakhla, Al Fakher, Social Smoke. We are a Fumari State. No offense to fumari people, but something they do makes my girl cough, so I wont get it just because she can't smoke it with me. I am going to go smoke some of my last Nakhla double apple. I am running dangerously low on smoke. I failed making my fourth batch of tobammel recently, but that's okay, I learned more again, so fifth batch is looking promising... But until I can make all of my favorite flavors, I will need my lovely Mules!!! ...This is why I haven't been posting in a while... Been on reserves and fumes... Being a parasite to everyone who goes out of town to bring me smoke... It's depressing yo!!!

    Happy Friday the 13th everyone!!! It's also a full moon tonight, and that's friggin' rad-ass!!! Not too many of those!!! So live it up and do something mischievous!!! I am going to have my Pirates Cave through my unglazed-but-adopting-the-pirate's-cave-flavor-nicely bowl, lotus, 2x titaniums, silly hose (I just love silly hose...), aaaand sprite in the base with ice and water (to cut down some of the carbonation, which is C02 and craptastic to breathe...) I am all alone... Girlfriends are busy, the girl's child is at her dads, and my friends all flaked on me... So it's me, Pirates Cave, and Jason X... Oh yeah, here's me at work today scaring the $#!7 outta ppl:

    I like my harmony, 80feet (hey 80feet you too buddy), alien, and ufo. That said, they are overpriced. I bought one of each, and, if they break, want to try my hand at putting them back together with gold. Then they will be worth it! Plus, japanese art, yay cultural hodgepodge hookahs (all of my hookahs!!). I voluntarily broke all my porcelain bowls after accidentally breaking my vortex once upon a time. A good bowl porcelain does not make, my opinion.

    You otterbeinbed: Thanks for the well-wishes... I have great friends, and an awesome hookah forum also filled with great friends, so my bad day was has been torched, and I've recently had a falling out with my starbuzz tangerine dream for similar reasons... Mint Head: Trying the standard fluff pack because hindsight didn't load my bowl... But so far it seems good, I like to be shy with the heat anyways because once it's burned... Good Nakhla, good moroccan mint tea, and the company of my pythons right now. They are fat, and happy.
