Tendancy towards anachronism

  • @bob what did you have for lunch? Please, lots of details. I have plenty of time.
    A cookie actualy.

  • @basement_shaman: You've disregarded my original comment in this thread, in which I began by stating that my views on voluntary simplicity could be construed as anachronistic. Please don't take my comments out of context, whether you intend to be brash or not.
  • @PipenSnusnSnuff the amish comment was not directed to your original comment.
    Sorry if you took it personally it was not my intent.

  • @Asherael Nope, no carrots in it, but I think I know the stuff you are talking about. Pretty sure that's an Amish carrot salad you had. Not sure of its proper name.

    Picallily is a green tomato relish with peppers and onions. The tomatoes in the garden aren't good for much else besides this after the weather begins to turn cool.
    have you ever considered frying up those green toms? The wife just fried up a batch tonite. I like to drench them in red wine vinegar and eat them with a fork. The wife puts mayo on hers. Buttermilk with an egg beat in it..drench..dip in flour..fry in your favorite oil. Drain them on paper towels. Eat them however you wish..

    Best GAS ever later that night..


  • @Camu Yes, there are plenty left for frying; piles of them really. I'm not a fan personally, but the rest of the tribe here is. They usually make a few batches every autumn.
    Maybe I'll make a batch of batter for myself with soymilk.

    Being as I like fried tofu..I imagine "soy milk" would work! Cheers! And I am snooting Copenhagen up my nose because my order of Taxi isn't here yet..a big natural ammonia salty banging snuff for after fried dinners methinks..

  • soy juice soy juice.. unless I had some orange milk with breakfast

  • @basement_shaman No, just that you mentioned CS and I have a couple. Twistmaster also but carry Benchmade.
  • I think you guys are just old and are trying to swap 'old' with 'sophisticated' haha i'm just messing around. execpt for @basement_shaman you are just pagan.

    I am not so different to be honest. I shave with a straight razor, I wont be motivated to shave unless I do. I read the newspaper daily (the physical paper), which in my generation is archaic and somthing that always came off as normal to me untill kids my age pointed it out all the time. I only drive standard cars, automatic seems silly to me. I do a LOT of gardening, I have herbs, vegetables, and trees, but I dont bother with flowers. I love my fig trees. I cook foods from all over the world, but still come back to my italian recepies handed down from many many generations. Cooking is somthing many people from my generation lack. I hate dealing with my phone, I refuse to get an 'Iphone' In general, things that are vintage grab my attention, vintage is classy, I don't care what anyone else says about it. My watch is analog. I try to make most things in my life a DIY endeavor.
  • @Vito445 to be a pagan you would need to believe in a god . I have no such beliefs. Pagan is a religion and I have religious indigestion.

  • A bit anachronical here too and liking it, besides snuff my other passion is the practice of medieval and renaissance swordmanship (mostly longsword and sword & buckler) not of the same period but I love them both!
  • @basement_shaman No, just that you mentioned CS and I have a couple. Twistmaster also but carry Benchmade.
    It wasn't me that mentioned CS that was bigdaddysnuff. But they do have a good selection of deadly collectable battle ready tools of surivial and self protection. It's not Honzo quaility but the prices aren't either. The Benchmark 553SBK griptilian looks like the folder on my list. I have no need to carry. so it be for display. I have tools for most purposes that I use.

  • My EDC knife is actually a Spyderco Manix 2. I abuse this knife and it keeps going.
  • I carry around a Kershaw, not a high end knife but reliable and says sharp; also a tiny Swiss Army penknife with a snuff spoon attached to the ring on the end, really handy.
  • Gen 2 River Witham Viking -zombie head remover ;works with first swing and never runs out of ammo.

  • Such a lovely blade, @basement_shaman ....
  • Use a 'dumb' phone, why shave, read real books that I can hold, shun traditional social media, buy local as often as possible and totally utilize good old fashion tobacco as often as feasible.
  • Snuff-Check; Straight razor, mug and brush-Check; Cast iron skillet and dutch oven-Check; cooking from scratch.

  • I bought a 1965 Mercedes Benz 190D. Cast iron, grain mill, roast coffee, diy laundry detergent, Ronsir glasses. I could go on.
  • Snuff-Check; Straight razor, mug and brush-Check; Cast iron skillet and dutch oven-Check; cooking from scratch and home canning-Check; topo map and army compass-Check; hand bound books-Check (when I can afford them); fountain pen and hand written letters-Check; Fedora, flat cap and derby (as needed)-Check; 1928 BCP and 1611 KJV-Check. All I need now is a Tin Lizzie and a candlestick 'phone. Modernity is for the inexperienced.
    1928 BCP - modernist! At my wedding we used the 1662 rite, and the clergyman said in 25 years of priestcraft he'd never used it for a wedding...

    Other anachronisms:
    Fountain pen
    3 speed bicycle which I ride in ordinary clothes with no 'safety gear' except a pair of cycle clips
    Small wire rimmed specs
    Proper old heavily repaired English shoes with leather soles and blakeys (except for cycling when I wear rubber soles)
    Bespoke suit (with tie, not open necked) for work; tweeds for leisure
    Pipe
    In business, always call people by surname and title unless invited not to (this one is slipping now - I think email has killed off the use of surnames and titles completely now)
  • Listen almost exclusively to Bach (Glenn Gould performing; preference for minor pieces) read books, take whisky straight, drive stick, play classical on my nylon string, carry a handkerchief (though I know most here do as well) and enjoy canned fish....
  • And I forgot my fountain pen...I was the lucky recipient of a beautiful cross with a monogrammed cap for my birthday.
  • Fountain pen.
  • I've considered joining the local Amish, if not for lack of internet.

    I personally don't see snuff taking as an anachronism. I don't think it was as popular as we all would like to think. I believe its day has yet to come.
    A good wish for sure BUT it was as popular as we like to think. ;-) Snuff was f***ing HUGE back in the days.

  • An apt observation. I have some of these preferences myself. Among them:

    Black 1940's wing tips
    Vintage safety razor with brush & mug
    'Soda jerk' glasses
    Pipes (corn cob, burl, and deer antler so far - looking to add a clay churchwarden)
    Gardening and preserving
    Soviet era eastern European firearms
    Fountain pens
    My grandfather's hats & ties
    Vinyl records, and some lacquer 78's
  • I do like to go simple, timeless with certain things at times or in some areas. I like to go reuseable(sp?) over disposable, also prefer foods with more natural ingredients. I use paper where lots of folk would use computers and such. Double edge razors, or at times a straight. I prefer cooking w/gas, wood, charcoal etc. over electric units. Stuff like that. Simple if not anachronistic...

    For the record, as I've heard. Pagan means "the people who dwell in the countryside", those who didn't want to live in the kingdom under the rule of the king. So a pagan may or may not have a religion. I think I heard this in R. Buckland's or G. Gardner's work...

    Badger brush and shaving mug.
    Cast iron pans and dutch oven.
    Pocket watches rather than wrist watches (mechanical of course!)
    Old Time Radio (mostly hardboiled detectives and Fibber McGee & Molly.)
    Musical preference - Doo Wop.
    Monastic aspirant.

    Sad to say... the handlebar moustache that I sported for several years has been replaced by a goatee (of sorts) after I was told that the handlebars would probably have to go if I become a monk.
