Cremo Clutch Cigars
140723untitled0001-Edit

Last but not least being revealed for the Summer Fun Fundraiser are two boxes of the brand spanking new Cremo Clutch City Horsepower cigars! These are being launched right now at the show and I’ve had to keep my mouth shut for months on them lol! They are gorgeous looking sticks and boxes – especially for fans of a certain Italian car company ;) These two boxes round out the huge selection of goodies I’ll be sending out in a week to thank contributors!

TwoWheelObsession.com Plug

Posted on Monday, July 21, 2014 in World of CO

twowheelobsessionFor those interested, my latest new project has just launched :) TwoWheelObsession.com is the culmination of many experiments, trials & errors and ideas that I have run through over the years. It’s going to be a very fun site to watch grow for I hope both myself and my viewers! I have quite a list of big plans for it taking things in a few branching directions, so here’s my one and only plug for it to you!

Yes I’ll be tying other things in as well such as cigars & photography so you might see a cross post or mention every now and again, but I promise it will always be relevant.

It’s going to feature motovlogs (video from the riders perspective) with exceptional quality. Tips, tricks, how-to’s and of course lots of off-topic discussions, for those that missed HLO ;) I’ll be taking you around the Tampa Bay area on some tours, visiting some stops including cigar lounges now and again, plus much, much more. I’m also gearing it to be a hub for the existing motovlogging community, so anyone will be able to find some new exciting channels to watch as well.

A huge THANK YOU to those that have contributed so far to the bike fund, yes there are 10 days left for the drive but I couldn’t pass up a fantastic deal and rebates on the bike, so I had to strike early. As it stands it’s going to be garaged for the next week anyway, as that pressing need threw my timetables all off, and all the other gear I ordered for the project hasn’t arrived quite yet. Now I REALLY look forward to sending out a ton of goodies in a little over a week!

I worked all night getting the new site up and ready, editing the first few videos, fleshing out more plans and ideas…I’m excited, it’s going to be a very fun ride (pun intended)!

The Lottery Is Back! (sort of)

Posted on Monday, July 21, 2014 in World of CO

Before you start asking me for the entry form, READ this post!

A group of fans wanted to try their hand at picking up the lottery, and I am more than happy to let them use the site to do that. Up top you will see a new Lottery page. It contains all the rules that THEY have setup along with a link to whatever is the current running lottery they have going (this post, to start it off).

I have zero to do with the rules or operation of this. Do not ask me (Bryan) squat about it.

OK, that out of the way, here’s the new lottery – good luck everyone and enjoy! (more…)

Easier To Find Informational Posts

Posted on Tuesday, July 15, 2014 in World of CO

Untitled-1A viewer tonight said it was difficult to find the tips, tricks, how-to’s and other such stuff here so I made it easier. I added a new category, put all the press releases off by themselves and put all the info posts in it’s own section. Now all you need to do is click the category down on the left, or send it to someone that could benefit.

Cigar Oasis Promo Vids Are Up!

Posted on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 in World of CO

Untitled-1I was watching for the new website, but didn’t notice that Cigar Oasis had already put up the new product and company promo vids I made for them, on their YouTube channel! For those wondering and asking, these have nothing to do with me personally or CigarObsession. Everything was scripted, just a straight gig. Check them out here: https://www.youtube.com/user/CigarOasisMedia/videos

Sorry For The Email Feed Junk!

Posted on Tuesday, July 8, 2014 in World of CO

A viewer just wrote in with a very good point, about not wanting to see all the new shop reviews necessarily in his subscription emails! I didn’t even think about that, but have taken care of it now. Email subscriptions should now be free of them :)

EDIT: Crap – it didn’t work…still working on it.

EDIT 2: Well it doesn’t appear the software allows this quite yet. So I’ll just make sure not to put in a ton of shop reviews all at once and overwhelm you guys. I’ll fix it as soon as it’s possible though!

New Shop Reviews Feature

Posted on Monday, July 7, 2014 in World of CO

Something I’ve wanted to see happen for a while has been a great crowd sourced review of cigar shopping – both online and B&M where people can let other know of great shops, or something terrible, places to seek out and places to avoid. Up top you’ll see Shop Reviews. There’s an easy submission form that goes to me so I can make sure the info is there. I’ll then add your reviews to the list and everyone can comment on them as they go up! While there have been several attempts at shop locators, none of the sites had much of a user base or kept them up, and they weren’t about reviews so much as geography. This way you’ll be able to talk about shops with one another, add photos etc. just like in the FanForum. Anyway, we’ll see how it goes – if it flops, at least I tried! If it takes off and helps people, cool :) If you see anything wrong or have suggestions I’m all ears too just comment below.

Contest – CO Shirt, Camacho USB Drive & Pin

Posted on Monday, July 7, 2014 in World of CO

IMG_5044

I have some goodies plus a CO shirt in your choice of size to give out this week!

This is open to any age, US only.

All you have to do to enter is comment below with what brand’s booth setup you would be most excited to tour if you were at the IPCPR Trade Show. No I won’t be there this year, in fact only a couple media sites may be, period. The IPCPR and bloggers don’t see eye to eye right now so many have chosen to abstain and concentrate on consumer shows and events now. Other sites like StogieReview have gone in to great detail over the past weeks about it so no need to rehash.

Also thank you once again to TheStitchGarage@eathlink.net for the awesome shirts!

Then just use the app below to enter – good luck! Ends in a week as usual. (more…)
