Although far from a pedestrian collection of photographs, these are taken as a pedestrian with an iPhone. With very few exceptions, all the photographs are untouched by effects. Each image comes alive through a combination of elements, separately or together: the time of day, angle of sun, the color and quality of the glass, surface heat and length of shot, interior colors, exterior motion, lines and space of subjects, people, displays, height, reflection and of course how clean the glass. All of these elements play a part in the composition.  The images are fleeting. Coming together one day and disappearing the following day. Next time you walk down the street, see what reflective view you can capture through your landscape, urban or rural, and share with me and others.

Now a fugitive on the run, Calvin has no choice but to work alongside Raidan’s mysterious Organization. And accept help from the unlikeliest band of fair-weather friends, including a mysterious squad of Polarian soldiers, an ex-intelligence-operative from the Rotham Republic, and the ever elusive Tristan—whose truest motives are a closely guarded secret. To make matters worse, Calvin is hunted mercilessly across the stars by Intel Wing’s top operative, Lafayette Nimoux, who is aided by a double-agent on Calvin’s own ship.

Warships and civilian transports are vanishing without a trace and murders in the dark are going unnoticed.

All the dark signs are pointing to what could be the death of the Empire, and the end of human dominance in the galaxy."

In this performance, the Mormon Tabernacle Choir and Orchestra at Temple Square present the story of George Frideric Handel’s life in an inspiring celebration of song.

The music includes some of the most beloved Christmas songs, such as “Oh, Come, All Ye Faithful, ” “Do You Hear What I Hear?” and “Joy to the World. ” Guest soloists from the Metropolitan Opera also thrill audiences with their rendition of “For unto Us a Child Is Born, ” from Handel’s Messiah. This performance brings the listener closer to the true meaning of Christmas with a Christ-centered focus and a thrilling display of talent for the whole family to enjoy.

Milo Banks never expected to become a sorcerer… He also never thought his mom and dad were descended from gods, or that his twin sister Emma would grow a pair of wings. As far as he knew, life was just a boring string of ordinary encounters, like getting beaten up at school or being ignored by girls. Until the day Milo watches his father save a girl's life by jumping seventy feet in the air. He witnesses a similarly incredible event when his mother saves Emma from a life-threatening injury. Both "slip ups" call the attention of enemies that have been hunting the Banks family for decades – enemies who will stop at nothing to recover the twins even if it means chasing them into another world. Known as "Astros, Realm of the Gods," this new world is a place of winged horses, dark magicians, epic battles, and exotic monsters. Milo and Emma will have to stick together in order to develop the amazing powers they have inherited and survive into adulthood. Because a war is coming, and before long, Milo and Emma will find themselves right in the center of it.

Genre: Sci-Fi & Fantasy

Price: $ 12.99

Release Date: January 19, 2001


Fifteen years before Stranger Things combined science-fiction, Spielberg-ian touches and 80s nostalgia to much acclaim, Richard Kelly set the template – and the high-water mark – with his debut feature, Donnie Darko. Initially beset with distribution problems, it would slowly find its audience and emerge as arguably the first cult classic of the new millennium. Donnie is a troubled high school student: in therapy, prone to sleepwalking and in possession of an imaginary friend, a six-foot rabbit named Frank, who tells him the world is going to end in 28 days 06 hours 42 minutes and 12 seconds. During that time he will navigate teenage life, narrowly avoid death in the form of a falling jet engine, follow Frank’s maladjusted instructions and try to maintain the space-time continuum. Described by its director as “The Catcher in the Rye as told by Philip K. Dick”, Donnie Darko combines an eye-catching, eclectic cast – pre-stardom Jake and Maggie Gyllenhaal, heartthrob Patrick Swayze, former child star Drew Barrymore, Oscar nominees Mary McDonnell and Katherine Ross, and television favourite Noah Wyle – and an evocative soundtrack of 80s classics by Echo and the Bunnymen, Tears for Fears and Duran Duran. This brand-new 4K restoration, carried out exclusively for this release by Arrow Video, allows a modern classic to finally receive the home video treatment it deserves.

One day after his usual hour of detention he comes home to find an enigmatic woman named Ceinwyn Dale sitting in his kitchen, telling his parents lies about a special reform school.

With the special ability to create lasting items of the Mancy, he's spurned the Artificer's Guild and struck out on his own to found an Artificer workshop looking to do things his way. One night, a vampire baroness claiming she's named Anne Boleyn walks into his shop, telling King Henry he's going to help her, and she's not taking 'no' for an answer.

Mike Epps Talks ‘Soaking’ Up Richard Pryor Role, Hints At Timeline

After a long casting process, it appears Lee Daniels’ Richard Pryor biopic is set to begin production soon.   

The late comedian will be played by Mike Epps. According to Epps, the all-star cast — which includes Eddie Murphy, Oprah Winfrey, and Kate Hudson – is scheduled to begin filming in March 2016. 

“We start prepping in January, and start shooting in March,” he said during an interview with The Huffington Post. “Eddie Murphy’s playing my father, Oprah Winfrey’s playing my grandmother, Kate Hudson’s playing my girl, and I’m playing Richard Pryor.”

Epps went on to share how preparing for the role of Pryor, who died in 2005, has required him to delve into the many layers of the late comedy legend.

“Right now, I’m just really soaking it up. I’m just a sponge right now,” he said. “Just doing a lot research on the history of Richard Pryor. Trying to figure out the things that I need to figure out to play certain scenes. How I need to feel. What state of mind I need to be in, because this guy was a roller coaster, man. It wasn’t easy. [He was] close to something that’s scientific — broken down into a whole lot of different ways.”

As the 44-year-old actor gears up for the iconic role, he is also busy promoting season 2 of Starz’s original series, “Survivor’s Remorse.” The comedy series, which is produced by NBA superstar LeBron James and follows the life of a young professional basketball star, Cam Calloway (played by Jessie T. Usher), as he navigates his newfound fame, wealth, and personal relationships.

While the show addresses relevant topics surrounding the lives of professional athletes, Epps — who plays Calloway’s uncle, Julius — says the show isn’t just relatable to people in the world of sports.  

“The whole show itself is relatable to anybody that’s in show business because it’s ‘survivor’s remorse,’” he said. “So the whole thing about money, family, and friends, and love and all that — it all ties in together.”

Genre: Action & Adventure

Price: $ 9.99

Release Date: January 25, 1979


A box-office smash, an Academy Award winner* and a fan favorite since it first flew into theatres in December 1978, Superman: The Movie assembles a cast and creative contingent as only a big movie can. At its heart (just as in three sequels) is Christopher Reeve's intelligent, affectionate portrayal of a most human Man of Steel. Watching Superman again isn't just like being a kid again. It's better. The movie's legacy soared even higher when director Richard Donner revisited this beloved adventure 22 years later and integrated eight minutes into the film. Enjoy more footage of the Krypton Council, a glimpse of stars of prior Superman incarnations, more of Jor-El underscoring his son's purpose on Earth andan extended sequence inside Lex Luthor's gauntlet of doom. Reeve, Marlon Brando (Jor-El), Gene Hackman (Luthor) and Margot Kidder (Lois Lane) give indelible performances that fuel the film's aura of legend. Looks like a swell night for flying. Why not come along?

What if someone gave you a box containing a button that, if pushed, would bring you a million dollars…but simultaneously take the life of someone you don’t know? Would you do it? And what would be the consequences? The year is 1976. Norma Lewis is a teacher at a private high school and her husband, Arthur, is an engineer working at NASA. They are, by all accounts, an average couple living a normal life in the suburbs with their young son…until a mysterious man with a horribly disfigured face appears on their doorstep and presents Norma with a life-altering proposition: the box. With only 24 hours to make their choice, Norma and Arthur face an impossible moral dilemma. What they don’t realize is that no matter what they decide, terrifying consequences will have already been set in motion. They soon discover that the ramifications of this decision are beyond their control and extend far beyond their own fortune and fate.

Boxoffice superstar and Academy Award-winner Mel Gibson ("Maverick," "Braveheart") and Danny Glover ("The Color Purple," "Grand Canyon") team up as L.A. cops in the top-grossing action movie that spawned three sequels. Directed by Richard Donner ("Superman," "Maverick"), Gibson is a volatile, unregistered risk-taker, known as a "lethal weapon" by his colleagues. Glover is the conservative detective with a solid reputation. Forced to form an uneasy alliance, they begin to unravel the mystery of an apparent suicide that turns out to be murder — and more. The New York Times calls this "a high-voltage thriller which packs an undeniable wallop;" Gene Shalit calls it "riveting!…a pair of heroes I hope we'll be seeing again;" and Joel Siegel says it's "a detective thriller that just won't quit…this one is so good it will be the standard for action films all year long!" Co-starring Academy Award-nominee Gary Busey ("The Firm," "Under Siege").

In 1975 and 1976 Paul McCartney and Wings undertook the epic Wings over the World tour, the largest scale tour they would ever undertake as a band. From this tour came both the legendary "Wings over America" triple live album and the concert film "Rockshow". Although filmed on this tour at the enormous Kingdome in Seattle, "Rockshow", originally a cut down version of the concert, was not premiered until November 1980 in New York and April 1981 in London. It was released on Betamax and later on laserdisc. Now for the first time the complete full length concert is being made available fully restored from the original 35mm film and with restored & remastered sound, including a 5.1 mix for the first time. This is Paul McCartney and Wings live on stage in a concert that is destined to live forever!

In the tiny, rural town of Carthage, TX, assistant funeral director Bernie Tiede was one of the town’s most beloved residents. He taught Sunday school, sang in the church choir and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Everyone loved and appreciated Bernie, so it came as no surprise when he befriended Marjorie Nugent, an affluent widow who was as well known for her sour attitude as her fortune. Bernie frequently traveled with Marjorie and even managed her banking affairs. Marjorie quickly became fully dependent on Bernie and his generosity and Bernie struggled to meet her increasing demands. Bernie continued to handle her affairs, and the townspeople went months without seeing Marjorie. The people of Carthage were shocked when it was reported that Marjorie Nugent had been dead for some time, and Bernie Tiede was being charged with the murder.

An argument between the Duke of Norfolk and the king's cousin, Henry, has grown from a dispute over money to an accusation of murder. The two men turn to King Richard II to solve the dilemma, but the king can do little, and the men look to settle with a duel. Moments before the fight begins, Richard stops the duel and banishes the two men.

From Academy Award-nominated director Richard E. Robbins, the award-winning producers of The Documentary Group and Paul G. Allen's Vulcan Productions, strategic partner, Intel Corporation, and distribution partners CNN Films and Gathr, comes Girl Rising – an innovative new feature film about the power of education to change a girl – and the world. Meryl Streep, Anne Hathaway, Selena Gomez and other esteemed actresses contribute voice performances to the film, which features original music from Academy Award winner Rachel Portman and Grammy Award winner Lorne Balfe. The film spotlights unforgettable girls like Sokha, an orphan who rises from the dumps of Cambodia to become a star student and an accomplished dancer; Suma, who composes music to help her endure forced servitude in Nepal and today crusades to free others; and Ruksana, an Indian “pavement-dweller” whose father sacrifices his own basic needs for his daughter’s dreams. Each girl is paired with a renowned writer from her native country. Edwidge Danticat, Sooni Taraporevala Aminatta Forna and others tell the girls’ stories, each in its own style, and all with profound resonance. These girls are each unique, but the obstacles they faced are ubiquitous. Like the 66 million girls around the world who dream of going to school, what Sokha, Suma, Ruksana and the rest want most is to be students: to learn. And now, by sharing their personal journeys, they have become teachers. Watch Girl Rising, and you will see: One girl with courage is a revolution.

SuicideGirls Respond to Richard Prince in the Best Way Possible

Gagosian Gallery

On Tuesday, Missy Suicide, the founder of the online alt-community SuicideGirls, received an email from one of the site’s photographers: Her Instagram image had been reproduced and sold for $ 90,000.

The controversial appropriation artist Richard Prince had taken several of the group’s Instagram images, in fact—provocative photographs of girls with rainbow-colored hair and tattooed limbs—blown them up to nearly six-feet-tall, and sold them for a boatload of money. Prince has made headlines for appropriating famous images before, from a Marlboro campaign to the cover of The Catcher in the Rye, but the backlash to his most recent copyright infringement has reached an all-time high.

“It’s such a violation because the people that are actually featured in the images couldn’t even dream of affording that,” Missy told us by phone. “I can’t imagine someone spending that much money on anything other than, like, a house.”

Missy and the rest of the SuicideGirls ruled out the idea of pursuing legal action and opted for a more clever response: creating a print that people can actually afford. Yesterday, they turned the tables on Prince and released their own blown-up prints—for just $ 90.

Online print store Eyes on Walls offered their services to the project free of cost, with all proceeds going to the Electronic Frontier Foundation, a nonprofit defending digital civil rights. In just one day, the SuicideGirls have already sold more than 250 prints. “We’re not making any money on the endeavor, but we’re trying to soften the blow a little bit.”

For the founder of the site, the story is Robin Hood in reverse: Prince is “stealing from the masses and feeding it to the rich.” In the art world, the verdict on Prince’s ethics is mixed. New York magazine’s Jerry Saltz called his exhibit “genius trolling,” while others say he’s a phony. Without fail, however, Prince draws a comparison to another famous image appropriator: Andy Warhol.

Missy sees things a little differently—the Instagrams are an expression of her group’s identity. “The difference is that Andy Warhol was stealing from a corporation and Prince is stealing from a kid,” she said. “It’s like a kick in the teeth to punk rock. He’s appropriating a culture.”

‘Still Alice’ Writer-Director Richard Glatzer Dead At 63

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Richard Glatzer, who co-wrote and directed the Alzheimer’s drama “Still Alice” alongside his husband, Wash Westmoreland, while battling ALS, died Tuesday in Los Angeles. He was 63.

Diagnosed in 2011 with ALS, also known as Lou Gehrig’s Disease, the pair took on the project of “Still Alice” in a very early stage of Glatzer’s disease. During the 23-day shoot, Glatzer communicated with one finger using a text-to-speech app on his iPad. By the time of the press tour for the film in late 2014, Glatzer was only able to communicate by typing on the device with his big toe.

Their film earned star Julianne Moore her first Oscar for her portrayal of an academic suffering from early onset Alzheimer’s. Unable to attend the ceremony, Glatzer watched Moore’s win Feb. 22 from a hospital, where he had been taken two days prior for respiratory problems. Westmoreland watched by his side.

“I am devastated. Rich was my soul mate, my collaborator, my best friend and my life,” Westmoreland said in a statement Wednesday. He added that he takes consolation in the fact that Glatzer saw “Still Alice” delivered to the world.

“Richard was a unique guy— opinionated, funny, caring, gregarious, generous, and so, so smart. A true artist and a brilliant man. I treasure every day of the short twenty years we had together,” he said. “I cannot believe he has gone. But in my heart and the hearts of those who loved him he will always be alive.”

A New York native, Glatzer started out his career in academia, earning a doctorate in English from the University of Virginia before turning his attentions entirely to film and television.

He met Westmoreland in 1995. The couple collaborated on four films as co-writers and directors, including the 2006 Sundance Grand Jury Prize and Audience winner “Quinceañera.”

Glatzer also worked on a number of television shows including “Road Rules,” ”Divorce Court” and “America’s Next Top Model.”

But it was “Still Alice” that seemed to be Glatzer’s crowning achievement.

“It’s ironic that in my deteriorated state I’d be able to make a film that was creatively everything I’d ever wished for,” Glatzer reflected to The Associated Press in late 2014 while promoting the film.

The parallels between Glatzer and their lead character’s degenerative diseases helped to inform the adaptation of author Lisa Genova’s best-seller.

“Many of the neurological appointments that Alice had in the book echoed appointments that Richard had had when they were testing to see if he’d had a stroke — like what’s today’s date, where are we, all that stuff. It was eerily similar,” Westmoreland said during the same interview.

“Rich is an incredibly strong person, and never let the disease get him down. He always wanted to keep life as normal as possible,” he added.

Moore was particularly moved by the similarities and how Glatzer’s condition made the story much more personal and emotional.

“It’s about the universality of our own experience and what we care about and that we all live and we all love and we all are going to go away some day. To look at that and to really examine that, but to also be present in it, is kind of an extraordinary thing to do. I think that’s what Wash and Rich are doing with this movie,” she said.

While the logistics of co-directing a film while suffering from ALS proved challenging, the entire production was committed to supporting Glatzer throughout.

“We had a little personal agreement that Richard has to be heard, even if it’s inconvenient, even if it’s longer to wait,” Westmoreland said.

Glatzer, who was in good spirits sitting next to Westmoreland, also weighed in.

“I felt very much heard by everyone, every day. And it’s so very important if you’re struggling with a disease like this to feel you still matter,” Glatzer said.

In addition to Westmoreland, Glatzer is survived by his daughter, Ruby Smith; his sister, Joan Kodner, and her husband, David; and his nieces and nephews.

Filmed over 12 years with the same cast, Richard Linklater's BOYHOOD is a groundbreaking story of growing up as seen through the eyes of a child named Mason (a breakthrough performance by Ellar Coltrane), who literally grows up on screen before our eyes. Starring Ethan Hawke and Patricia Arquette as Mason's parents and newcomer Lorelei Linklater as his sister Samantha, BOYHOOD charts the rocky terrain of childhood like no other film has before. Snapshots of adolescence from road trips and family dinners to birthdays and graduations and all the moments in between become transcendent, set to a soundtrack spanning the years from Coldplay's Yellow to Arcade Fire's Deep Blue. BOYHOOD is both a nostalgic time capsule of the recent past and an ode to growing up and parenting. It's impossible to watch Mason and his family without thinking about our own journey.

Richard Pryor Haunts Top Five

Recently I finished reading Furious Cool, a breezy yet reflective take on the life of Richard Pryor. Rather than present Pryor as merely a pioneering stand-up comic, authors David and Joe Henry position Pryor as a transcendent black entertainer, an essential link from the segregated time of the chitlin’ circuit to today’s world.

Pryor, the book asserts, was born from a rich tradition, a hidden culture that informed many civil-rights leaders in overt and subtle ways. Later, as he entered the mainstream, his struggles with his identity as a black public figure — and what it means to “sell out” — drove his self-destruction and hinted at larger problems for African Americans assimilating into an unfair, flawed society.

I thought of Pryor (the tormented artist coping with his celebrity by freebasing cocaine) while watching Top Five, the latest directorial effort from Chris Rock. As a comic and social commentator, Rock is perhaps the rightful heir to Pryor; indeed, his troubled filmography parallels Pryor’s own spotty, sometimes embarrassing cinematic contributions. Rock has seemingly avoided Pryor’s dark personal legacy, whose best work was behind him by the time he entered his early 40s. With Top Five he finally eclipses Pryor, at least as a filmmaker.

Rock is 49. In a recent interview he spoke fondly of aspiring to a James Taylor-type career, meaning working mainly during the summer and reserving the majority of the year for family and life outside the public view. (Referencing Taylor may be ironic for a comedian known for his Pryor-like stand-up bit “Niggaz vs. Black People.”) This sense of perspective, and a playful rejection of convention, lurks just under the surface in Top Five, which debates issues of race, success and love in a way Pryor might have had he not been derailed by addiction and illness.

Pryor’s legacy — his brilliance, his contradictions and ultimate tragedy — lingers in the shadows of Top Five. He is referenced outright by Rock’s character Andre Allen during a conversation about comedy’s greats. Allen admires his honesty. (In the same breath he applauds recent media lightning rod Bill Cosby for his mastery of storytelling. The film was made during the summer of 2013, long before Cosby’s name became controversial.) But the allusions to Pryor go deeper. Like the real-life comedian, Allen is frozen by self-doubt. He believes his comedic gifts to be tied to drug and alcohol dependence and has turned to making mediocre blockbusters.

Pryor made the abysmal The Toy and Superman III during his middle age. For Allen it’s the popular Hammy series, featuring a degrading character not unlike Martin Lawrence’s Big Momma, or Rock himself parading around in films like Madagascar. While Top Five is messy in its storytelling at times, the world of the film is contemporary and has a lived-in quality that gives the Allen’s plight and his search for purpose true resonance. It’s as if Rock were acting out the trajectory of a comedian like Pryor in Hollywood and made small changes, correcting the lonelier aspects of his path.

In one scene Allen jokes that the only legitimate reasons to break up with someone are either infidelity or abuse. It’s a startling aside — one not warmly received by the character played by a charming Rosario Dawson — but it’s the kind of belief that would not have been out of place in one of Pryor’s routines about relationships. (He openly admitted to mistreating women throughout his life.) In another scene he jokes about not being able to hail a cab in Manhattan; a taxi then stops at that precise moment, Rock updating a common brand of racial humor. Cabs may stop in 2014 — a signal of progress — but issues continue.

Later, when Allen finds catharsis on stage, his natural ability and effortless delivery evokes Pryor’s own knack for recovering from personal trauma the only way he knew how: by performing in front of an audience. But Allen (and Rock?) is able to find professional satisfaction, and personal happiness, in ways that always eluded Pryor.

Of course, Allen is as much a reflection of Chris Rock and his own ruminations on fame as he is a mirror of Pryor. The films succeeds as a kind of superior, more lighthearted version of Pryor’s autobiographical Jo Jo Dancer, Your Life Is Calling. At the same time Rock’s influences are obvious: The film is meant as a more urban, raucous version of Linklater’s Before series, or typical Woody Allen, or maybe a more accessible version of Rock collaborator Louis CK’s FX series Louie. The result is a bit mixed, tonally, but nevertheless represents a remarkable step forward for Rock as a filmmaker. In an age where most adult fare feels like strategically packaged Oscar bait, Top Five exists in an honest and often hilarious place. We need more films like it.

One final note: Richard Pryor’s career featured several attempts to promote more black voices in film and encourage the work of African0American filmmakers. Top Five is a true embodiment of that dream, having been conceived by some of America’s most prominent black entertainers. Besides Rock’s multiple roles, the music of Top Five was done by Questlove, of the legendary band The Roots. And the cast is perhaps one of film’s greatest assemblage of black comics ever. The film was co-produced by rappers Kanye West and Jay Z, who is often chided for his passive role in bettering the lives of black Americans. (Speaking of West and Jigga, the film is kind of cousin to the themes they explored on Watch the Throne, whose “Niggas in Paris” is the film’s unofficial anthem. I love how Rock engages with hip-hop throughout Top Five, perhaps a spiritual hat tip to CB4.)

Rather than drape itself in Important Messaging, Top Five works best when it casually depicts its characters as they are: existing, conversing. It’s daring at times and has a sense of what’s possible in a way not unlike Pryor’s groundbreaking sketch work on NBC. It may be sexier to talk about Selma today or bang the drum for more female auteurs; that’s fine. Still, Top Five has a definitive voice and truly gets its place in the world. Its first scene features a conversation about what it means to live in a supposedly post-racial, post-Obama America. By the end it’s evoking Preston Sturges’ Sullivan’s Travels, but not before completing its amusing glimpse at the lives of Americans living in that world.

Pryor would be proud.

Celebrity Collector: Richard Gunn

I find myself wondering if things fall out of fashion socially, is there still a market for them?

For example, products that are no longer on the shelves of stores. Because they are no longer available, does that mean people won’t covet the chance to buy old stock, or hold on to what few items they might still have?

Think about vinyl records. People collect them, but I can only assume that is a shrinking market. Kids today never had albums and therefore, have no connection to sway them to collect.

What about smoking paraphernalia? Is there any interest in vintage advertisements with the Marlboro Man, or would people collect ashtrays and just use them as candy dishes? Since smoking has been banned in so many cities, and gone are the days of it being chic to smoke, would anyone still have interest?

Actor Richard Gunn showed me that the interest is still there. When he’s not filming television series, Granite Flats, or wrapping his latest film, Dark Places with Charlize Theron, he is enjoying a “pipe dream” of his own.

Electronic cigarettes and hookah pipes are the way people smoke today. How did you become interested in pipes?

I was in Paris for the New Year in 2000 and I came across a pipe by a company named Butz Choquin It was called a church organ pipe. It was longer than a traditional pipe and had a small bowl. It’s called a “petite church” and had a blue stain to the wood. I just thought it was interesting. Come to find out, it’s pretty rare. I thought I better smoke it if I bought it. I tried it and I liked it. I always really liked the smell of pipe tobacco.

After that, I bought a couple more. I don’t buy a lot of them, because I like it to be a useful collection. I like to smoke all of them though I don’t smoke very often.

Some people collect utilitarian things, but only display them, and never use them. What’s your school of thought?

If I was buying brand new pipes just to display I would feel differently, but I like to use them. I buy estate pipes. Estate pipes are used, but they are thoroughly cleaned and graded before being sold. So smoking an estate pipe is not going to ruin its value. What makes an older pipe better than a new pipe is the wood it’s made from which is briarwood. The wood can be hundreds of years old when it was collected. This type of wood is very hard to come by. As briarwood ages, the quality increases. That’s why a lot of people are interest in estate pipes.

Do you have a favorite pipe in your collection?

You might be surprised to know my favorite pipe is not a brand name one. Some of the tobacco shops buy pipes that are unbranded from pipe makers and put their own brand on it. So I don’t know who made it. It’s a smaller bowl pipe and it takes about half and hour to smoke a bowl instead of 45 minutes like a normal pipe. Its fairly plain, but I just love it! I can carry it in my pocket and it smokes the best out of all of them.

One thing that’s very interesting about collecting pipes is their price. Some are very expensive. But you can also find some that are very reasonably priced and it doesn’t affect the smokeability of the pipe. There is something for every collector’s budget!

Is that the only thing you collect?

I happen to collect wristwatches as well. My favorite is a Gucci stainless steel watch. The parts that are stainless are a matte finish, not a high polish. The black dial is rectangular and it’s completely in line with the watchband. My stepfather, who has since passed away, gave me that watch. It’s a very good-looking watch and can be worn with something casual or dressy. I enjoy collecting them. I currently have about 40-50 in my collection.

Wristwatches…potentially another long time utilitarian object that with the invention of the smart phone might slowly become…. obsolete.
