I would really like to get into listening to the radio, but I lack any sort of equipment to do so. I messed around with radiogarden for a bit but it's really just not the same. Really, I'd like a nice analog tuner but they are fairly expensive, I'm not sure what would be a good re-entry apart from just buying a small portable radio from the thrift store, which just may end up in disappointment.
Does stationary deserve it's own thread? Lately I have decided I would like to go broke buying many different pens and inks after just starting out with a few. I bought a couple of Pilot Kakuno's in F and EF, which are certainly a better experience than the Pilot precise pens that I have been using for years. After, I ended up buying a converter and decided that experience is quite a bit more engaging than just replacing cartridges. Along with that order I did purchase an EF Kaweco Sport in iridescent pearl with a gold clip. Certainly a stellar looking pen, but the body material did leave a little to be desired. Regardless, it's very comfortable and smooth, save for the round grip rather than the triangular style that I prefer, but I'm still very pleased with it. After writing with a Kakuno for a little bit, I may have come to find the scratchyness of the EF tip quite endearing, it's sort of like a positive feedback mechanism.
I'm considering buying a Twsbi ECO-T with an EF nib now, but the jade color seems to not be available anymore, sadly. That particular color is available with the cylindrical grip, but I'm not sure if I want to get it. The mint blue is still available with a triangular grip, while the color is still nice, it doesn't really have the same appeal as the jade. Certainly it seems a little silly disregarding something as simple as a pen just for its aesthetic properties, but if I am buying a premium product, then I would like it to be appealing in all aspects.
Of course there would be more to stationary than just pens and writing utensils, but that is just what is on my mind at this very moment.
