The Yoda pen was so much fun, I had to get another one. This is the R2-D2 ASTROMECH Droid Medium Tip fountain pen from Shaffer. Someone asked how is Shaffer still around >>470, and upon reading the fine print I found an important note for air travelers: Note for air travelers; changes in pressure during flight may cause fountain pens to leak unless they are carried vertically, with nip pointed up, with cap on. The paper also mentions that Shaffer is now a brand owned by A. T. Cross Company. The mystery is solved. Now we know how Sheaffere stayed in business, and how Cross remains competitive. Slovanian labor with fantastic workmanship is really catching the attention of the pen community.

Faster and faster, I found a mini ballpoint pen with the brand name faster. Definitely this is going to become the pen of choice for midgets, children and petite women.

I can barely grasp it in my hand. It came with a nice black cardboard box. The sales presentation is exceptional. The ball is a bit tight and the ink does not flow freely or fast. So you won't have to worry about smudges, or staining furniture. Of course it is causing a cramp already as I force myself to complete a single page. That's enough, time to pass the pen to the closest circus midget then ice my hand for the cramps.

Straight out of Midwest Americana the Parke pen, well, kind of. This is the Parker gell pen. Pour rollerball excitement, as the ink leaves the pen from a French made rollerball.

Oi Oi, all the Frenchman should agree. This well balanced pen from Thomas Jefferson Louisiana Purchase is worth connecting to a French rollerball.

Parker has a big history as the most famous of pen companies in America. This new and awesome combination of European technology makes this sleepy company wake up and join the 21st century in a big, bold and beautiful way. Parker strikes into the 21st century a little slow, but this much enjoyment can't be rushed.

Spare all extravagant purchases and put a few pesos on the mesa for the M and G OfficeG pen.

This pen truly deserves one :star:. My first impression of the writing instrument is the translucent nature of the shaft. Maybe the Sun has superheated the shaft to give the visible ink a real life gritty feel.

Oh Hell!

This pen is a fail!

Does it have gravel in the ink? Check!

Is it gravel in the ink, or imperfections in the ball point?

I've heard that ballpoint pen balls are hard to make. Still it could just be crappy ink.

Actually I didn't know it was a Pilot when I purchased this pen. It's nice, but a bit difficult to control the size is just off, so when I grasp the shaft, the seam where the pen unscrews bites into my fingers. Otherwise the size of this pen is fine. It might even be considered big

for the Asian market. Its big enough for me as well. With the annoying bite at the fingers. It effects my penmanship substantially. I can't get past that. Its an expensive and beautiful Pilot. I forgot to gie the name.

The nomenclature on the pricetag says. Pilot RBall REG BLMR 17 Black Black Gold S

It's a fine pen. This pen is for a woman's hand for sure.

Well, it was at least entertaining to figure out the Bestrate pen. Its a ballpoint pen. I expected to have the typical disposable ballpoint cartridge.

Nope, the pen fits the Faber Castell fountain pen ink cartridges. It came with its own, but the cartridge I'm using now is the normal royal blue disposable Faber Castell cartridge. Nice! However the pen is so tiny. Its definitely a ladies pen. Its less than three inches after removing the cap. Its diminutive size makes it to small to control. I have a difficult time forming words with the implement. Otherwise, the ball is pleasant, and the scratch is noticable. you can make an audible statement while writing.

My Faber Castell ran out of ink today. Of course when I refilled it with luxurious royal blue ink, I spilled some on my hand. I am branded as a fountain pen user until the ink wears off. I love the tip of this pen, and how heavy it feels in my hand.

This implement feels as powerful as the pen can possibly be. The look is something you might see James Bond using writing secret codes in invisible ink. Q modifications include a refillable bladder to screw and dip into the ink I spilled on my hands.

However, wow! This ink feels as royal as it looks. With the pen sliding and dancing across the pages with ease. I am truly pleased. 5 stars

Black ink in a Taiwanese Kimber Kay fountain pen. I have to say it feels pretty good., although its to short for my hand. If it were another inch longer I feel it would be good like an American pen is.

The ink is silky, like you would expect from an oriental source. THe pen may be from Taiwan, but the lovely iridium point is forged in Germany.

Its super fine and gives the writer the ability to write really small. The pen is alright, I'm going to keep it around for the times I need to write in black ink. Blue ink is alright except for some government agencies prefer black ink. I'm not certain about why. I seems blue would prevent excessive copying of paper.

Nice beautiful blue ink, is the only color in the Lamy Camaflage FP. Solid black, as if you are lost in the forest without a light black.

Don't plan to find this pen at night without having a trusty match or flashlight at your side.

Some pens are a pleasure to use,and this one is practically requiring a towel to wipe up the to many drops of perspiration from the happiness my hand feels as solid fine lined characters appear on the page. There are not any smears on the page, or ink on my hand. The Lamy Camaflage Pen is economical, exciting to look at, and an ice skater gliding across the page.

As an avid writer, scribbling articles or stories has to be available anywhere, and thus whenever my girl drags me along to a shop during the winter months or a beach during the summer ones, I always pack my trusted Bic.

Good to go and best bought in packs, Bic is trustworthy, never dries out and has been with me since childhood. Though the classic four-colored one that I used in high school has since gone out of style, the book that I always carry round with me will normally feature a Bic wherever I go, leaving the ‘this page intentionally left blank’ sheet available for scribbling ideas, paragraphs or even, in the rarest of occasions, the start of a new book idea.

I remember sitting on a Canarian Island terrace for days upon end as the missus soaked up the sun, scribbling away on the classic yellow notepad with my Bic, always the trustworthy companion of any enthusiastic writer.

Easy in hand for anyone that grew up without a smartphone and thus prefers to write rather than to type when no keyboard is available, Bic is a smart and economically sound choice.

Rather than the ink pen which screams ‘money’, Bic’s ballpoint ensures quality and, for those like me that are left-handed, steer clear of any smudges.

Dude? Yes dude, its a Dude!

Ohto brand made in Japan, Dude brand fountain pen. Yes dude, its pretty nice, and also affordable. The pen came with ink and not just a little bit.

This pen came with two bladders of ink in the barrel. At first I thought

the pen was going to leak all over, because it made noise when I shook it up a few times to get the ink loaded.

It was making a noise, so I carefully disassembled the pen, hoping I wouldn't get ink all over the place.

What a surprise the pen wasn't broken, inside an additional cartridge of ink slopped out onto my lap.

The Dude is an inexpensive fountain pen, costing 1/3 less than my Pilot Prera. So lets cut them a break over the smudgy ink.

At least they gave us plenty of it. Where the Prera doesn't come with ink it is sold separately.

If I do nothing, entropy sneaks upon me and steals my life from me.

If I think nothing, my empty mind invites the first intruder at the

gate, and betrays me.

Cogito ergo sum.

If I think not, I am not.

Degeneration is the rival of creation, and if I do not coerce this

person to some higher power,

I will degenerate.

If I do not rise, I will fall.

I must rise.

>So, truth must have a solid – an absolute – foundation, if it is to hold any weight or meaning.

Things must be proven. Whim becomes Adonai to the sheep, and truth to the man. Life’s

pursuit is this ultimate, unshakeable truth, and also its elusive, globally reviled source.

> Life’s

Could you fucking sound more of an edgy tryhard? Could you? And then people wonders why all of this philosophic bullshit you all agressively jerk off to makes me cringe at best.

This is why most of you faggots who visit this shithole are depressed and probably are gonna kill yourselves eventually.

Anyone doing National November Writing Month?

I'm hoping that at least I will be able to write a garbled but interesting mess with enough wine and barbiturates.

Hey there /pen/,/pol/,and whoever else is here,let's get a poetry thread going.

we'll take it whether you wrote it yourself or if it's a personal favorite of yours.

It's an amazement to me
How those who claim prejudice
Are oft those who are most prejudiced

Forcing their views upon society
Persecution their creed;
Stealing our livelyhoods

Attempting to crush our beliefs
To crush our rights
And yet they wonder why we despise them

Dover Beach

BY MATTHEW ARNOLD

The sea is calm tonight.

The tide is full, the moon lies fair

Upon the straits; on the French coast the light

Gleams and is gone; the cliffs of England stand,

Glimmering and vast, out in the tranquil bay.

Come to the window, sweet is the night-air!

Only, from the long line of spray

Where the sea meets the moon-blanched land,

Listen! you hear the grating roar

Of pebbles which the waves draw back, and fling,

At their return, up the high strand,

Begin, and cease, and then again begin,

With tremulous cadence slow, and bring

The eternal note of sadness in.

Sophocles long ago

Heard it on the Ægean, and it brought

Into his mind the turbid ebb and flow

Of human misery; we

Find also in the sound a thought,

Hearing it by this distant northern sea.

The Sea of Faith

Was once, too, at the full, and round earth’s shore

Lay like the folds of a bright girdle furled.

But now I only hear

Its melancholy, long, withdrawing roar,

Retreating, to the breath

Of the night-wind, down the vast edges drear

And naked shingles of the world.

Ah, love, let us be true

To one another! for the world, which seems

To lie before us like a land of dreams,

So various, so beautiful, so new,

Hath really neither joy, nor love, nor light,

Nor certitude, nor peace, nor help for pain;

And we are here as on a darkling plain

With all the bravado I might muster

I repel the beast,

and so disgust her

My principal cause befouls her nature,

lays waste to her den,

in this, I hate her

The indignation runs red hot

despite all her efforts,

she forgets me not

After all I've done to light her day

she paints it black,

to scurry away;

rejects me but knows not what I offer,

such is the pleasure

of a scornful daughter.

Oh when I saw you standing there

Wild flowers dying in your hair

Child of harvest time, coughing up must

Black flowers' dull perfume trailing in dust

Hoisting dull pennants to the spike of that hill

Your smile started bleeding and then the mill

Shearing and sharing your love and your rage

Whilst hawk's head descending spewed out a new age

Prison Love

Deb the Dank was the rankest of skanks in the houscow,

She stabbed and she stole, she lied and she told,

few in the lockup liked her.

Pinky the slink (a dyke we think) dwelt in the clink with Debbie. One day white power sent her to the shower with a message for Deb the dank. They scrubbed and they rubbed (which Pinky quite loved) but in the end out came the shank.

Poor little Pinky had to lick out Deb's skinky, foul taste of a turd surprised the jailbird and left poor Pinky in tears. Deb had more planned, made a fist of her hand and confirmed all of Pinky's worst fears. Much more than salad would be tossed.

Then Deb the coward, she slipped in the shower – now who would be bossed?

Deb the dank would die as she lived, by the end of her shiv – with no one but Pinky to thank.

– Result of a 5 minute poetry exercise based around trying to conjure a Dr. Seuss feel. Random words I drew were Shank/Shiv and theme 'Love'.
