A reply to Some Hookah forums

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on January 22, 2010 by Abraham Appel

I don’t know how to fit in at the Hookah forums. I’ve been kicked out many times for the Ed Hardy Hookah Blog. It seems that so many people have hidden agendas that when you are honest and say that you write for the Blog they assume you’re an agent and not a lover of hookah culture. And then you look at every forum after that as agents who will call you an agent. And then you don’t know why people hate A hookah that you like so much.

I write the blog to be honest, to share what I see as American hookah culture, and to hopefully create the best blog online for Hookah news. More than just products. The American and maybe world Hookah story should be covered with an eye on more than just selling products. Of course we want to sell our products but we want to be part of the Hookah culture as a whole as well. Not one-dimensional.

I can handle criticisms. but what has been so frustrating is that most critics say things like “just look at it.” Or I hope he sells it quick so that I don’t have to see it.” How can you hate something you have never seen and how can I really believe you if you wont go see it?

I try to explain at the blog that what you’re hating on is actually what you’re supporting. You see Ed hardy , the name as a big company instead of as the new start-up. So you say you’re defending Hookah culture but what really is being supported is a cultural rejection of Ed hardy hookah by those who already make huge money from Hookahs.

In the hookah world we at Ed hardy are the newer, small company. We have done well. But we are not an established company like the ones usually mentioned by people dismissing us out of hand. So we really do have to have a good product. Doesn’t mean its the greatest thing since sliced bread. But its a great looking Hookah, a well-built hookah. And people who have bought it have not treated it as less than a very nice smoking hookah.

Ed Hardy and hookahs.

All Ed Hardy Hookah has done is add to the selection of hookah’s. We work in hookah because we love the smokey culture.

We created Ed Hardy hookah because Ed hardy is a person who represents everything America at its best is about. He is the same story every immigrant dreams of.

A hard worker who came out of the counter-culture through talent, hard work and using his intelligence to back up his individuality and rebelliousness with the bravery to follow his passions. Ed Hardy used his god- given talents to struggle a living out of the toughness of life.  Ed Hardy made it to college, gave it up to follow his passions and then made it in tattoos when tattoos were not accepted.

Ed Hardy was bloody good at tattoos. And he worked his way out of the struggle, sold his art and now finally does his own work, finally can devote his life to what he loves; His own paintings.

I read on a  hookah forum that “just based on the principal of what Ed Hardy stands for in the shisha world upsets me.” This same person turned down our tobacco for no reason. The price was good. And had he smoked the Ed Hardy Tobacco it would have been great. It was just this  invisible Ed Hardy meaning he claims to represent.

What does Ed Hardy Hookah stand for? allow me again  to point you to the life of Ed Hardy for what Ed hardy Hookah stands for. Stand for what you want. We Already know who Ed Hardy Hookah is.

Ed Hardy Hookah  stands for Individuality.

Ed Hardy Hookah stand for small companies working hard against the status que to create something new and better.

Ed Hardy Hookah stand for having nothing but the quality of our work speak for us.

Ed Hardy Hookah stand for the working class.

We do not stand for the billion dollar brand of Ed Hardy Shirts. We stand for the meaning of the tats on those shirts. Ed Hardy Hookah stands for the story that created those tats.

Palo Alto; murder;Da Hookah Spot drama

The article came out  five days before the arrest of Palo Alto’s, Da Hookah Spot owner, Paul Zumot. Da Hookah Spot was becoming a place to be.

Today the press follows  “Da Hookah Spot saga.” Murder charges on the past owner Bulos “Paul” Zumot, and the candlelight vigil greeting the new owner of Da Hookah Spot against the past owner of Da Hookah Spot.

Meanwhile; Department of Justice tests have begun to challenge the police’s first assertions that Mr. Zumot  (The hookah spots previous owner) doused his girlfriend, Jennifer Schipsi with gasoline before setting their apartment on fire. Causing  both sides to start digging in their heels. Those who feel their friend and Hookah bar owner could never do this murder might now be as convinced that he’s innocent, as the victim’s family is sure he’s guilty.

People at first thought she had died in the fire with no foul play.

But police, citing the history of restraining orders against Mr Zumot, and the police claiming that it appeared that Ms. Schipsi had been strangled, arrested Mr. Zumot 4 days after the apartment fire.

That was the beginning of what appears to be a story twisting  stranger, deeper and more painful for everyone involved.

It is hard to imagine how Da Hookah Spot is going to survive the reporters walking in and candlelight vigils outside.

And this just in: The case is being moved form the Palo Alto court-house because of shouting matches and security concerns between supporters of Mr Zumot and supporters of the deceased.

One of the wierd things ive seen in hookah bars is how many good people smoke together at our hookah bar. A lot of good humor can be found. This is a great video; one of those hookah videos of the decade.

   But behind the Hookah humor of this video is an actual good lesson. “remember to always put yourself out their and do your own adventure.”

Ed hardy hookah was smoking last night and we was talking about why hookah blogs always have to talk about the rich thick clouds, the taste of mixed fruit Shisha and so on. Why can’t smoking be part of the secondary story and who we are part of the first?

It’s no secret that we are an Ed hardy Blog. We sell hookahs. WE love Shisha and hookahs. But when you go through Hookah blogs, you get the same thing. Hookah smoke, flavor, explanation of how to make a Hookah (slightly helpful but not really, go to your local hookah bar and have them help you).

And so Hookah writing is generic. I think Hookah blogs can take their blog and their life to the next level. lets make sure Ed Hardy Hookah does.

Hookah lounge talk (cause really who talks around a water cooler anymore?)

When at a Hookah lounge there is nothing worst then running out of things to say. Its embarrassing.

Please, avoid the awkward Shisha silence. Keep checking into Ed hardy Hookah for updates throughout the day for the conversation sparks that will make the Hookah sparks better.

Below is the story of an older male substitute teacher who last week took off his shirt for his class. As told by youtube contributer fluffy.
