Warning - This post is rife with spoilers!   I'm a big fan of the Purge movies, and am looking forward to seeing the newest one, Election Day .  When I watched the first film, I remember thinking, "This is the most John Carpenter-like film I've seen of the ...

Dang it, once again I have completely forgotten that G+ exists, and have backlogged messages to reply to...

Hello all!  I write with news of the latest website update - I've just posted four more new Morta Collectors, in a variety of shapes, to the catalog here:

http://www.talbertpipes.pair.com/bretagne.shtml

For folks who are local to Greensboro, I've also put two new ones at Pipe & Pint, should anyone want to stop by there and have a look.  These will be the last mortas for a while - I had intended to keep making them until I used up the last of the blocks in this box I've been working from, but I can tell that I'm not far from getting tired of working on so many similar pipes, and am switching off to something else while I'm still enjoying them and have enthusiasm for them. I really, really try to avoid ever letting any workshop projects turn into slogs... It's odd, but I almost feel as if it's doing a disservice to the potential buyer, to sell him something that I was just sort of, "Ugh, get this finished" about, so I always try to move back and forth between different kinds of pipes to keep my enthusiasm high. This doesn't mean these are the last mortas ever, just that it's probably going to be a few months at least before there are any more.

In other news - We have an Instagram account now!

https://instagram.com/talbertpipes/

I've only had it for a few days, but have already enjoyed the ease of uploading quick photos.  Thus far, it's mainly workshop shots, tools, hardware, and a mix of pipes both old and new.  I will probably start regularly posting progress shots of new pipes that are in the works, for anyone who is interested... It's certainly easier than taking camera photos and then upping them to our Facebook page.  The Talbert Pipes Instagram page will be pretty much exclusively pipe stuff, with a few random asides tossed in for color.  I may set up a personal Instagram page later, given how much fun I've been having with it so far, but I'm not sure I want the bother of account switching.  We'll see how it goes.  In the meantime, give me some followers!  The bigger the audience, the more impetus to keep posting. 

That's all for now, but as always, thanks very much for your time!

Is anyone on G+ still alive?  I'm curious.

Just posted a new site update - I'm gradually clearing out my stock of Breton Morta and have put up some new Morta Collectors:
