Vaping Diaries #278: Baker White CEO Talks Odin Juice & E-Liquid Safety (Vape Nights)

Posted on December 8th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

My Vape Nights 2014 interview with Baker White CEO Danny Baker is one of the more informative vaping interviews I’ve filmed. Danny covered a wide range of topics, including the company’s extremely unique Odin by Baker White high VG line, e-liquid manufacturing safety, and the controversial diacetyl ingredient found in many vaping juices.

Baker White stresses safety; it was one of the first e-liquid companies to use a forced-air clean-room and one of the few with a facility that meets the pharmaceutical-grade ISO-6 standard. E-liquid safety is a big issue … continued

Vaping Diaries #277: Joe Blow’s Incredible Juice Interview (Vapecon USA)

Posted on December 7th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

Capping off my Vapecon USA 2014 coverage is a chat with Joseph Upton, the owner of Joe Blow’s Incredible Juice. This was a fun piece for me to put together, as it was the most personal interview of the show. Joseph spoke about his daughter inspiring him to quit smoking tobacco cigarettes and start Joe Blow’s Incredible Juice. One of his flavors — Red Eye No. 36 — is a special blend that’s named after his late brother.

I was impressed by the inventiveness of Joe Blow’s Incredible Juice. … continued

Coffee Talk #649: Shreds Revisited (Pop Edition!)

Posted on December 6th, by raymond padilla in Coffee Talk, Music. No Comments

As many of you know, I’m a big fan of “shreds” videos. A well done shreds video totally cracks me up. The best clips are musically accurate enough to be recognizable, with the right amount of horrible playing/singing to make you laugh. The last time I wrote about shreds, I focused on heavy metal acts like Metallica and Ozzy Osbourne. The genre lends itself  marvelously to shreds; it’s fun to butcher virtuoso guitar playing and bang heavy drums off-rhythm. Today, I give you a trio of my favorite pop … continued


Vaping Diaries #276: Gmodz Jeff Luciano Interview (Vapecon USA)

Posted on December 5th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Interviews, Vaping Diaries, Videos. No Comments

Gmodz was showing off some unique and beautiful 26650 mods at Vapecon USA. The Gmodz 26650 is available in a variety of finishes and uses a unique atomizer. The company claims that the Gmodz 26650 is the smallest and lightest 26650 mod on the market. What really caught my eye was the beautiful finishes the company offers. It all starts with a base of 304 stainless steel. After that, the possibilities are endless — 24-karat gold, Tiffany blue, and powder coat paint are available, with brushed, matte, and polished looks. … continued

Vaping Diaries #275: Craft Vapery on Mike & Dr. Drew

Posted on December 4th, by raymond padilla in E-Cigarettes, Vaping Diaries. No Comments

Craft Vapery — in my opinion, the best e-liquid subscription service in the vaping business — made a special guest appearance on the Mike & Dr. Drew podcast. Company co-founders Omri Agam and Joshua Krane did a fantastic job representing the vape industry in a positive way. The two helped explain vaping to a general audience in clear and concise fashion. There are millions of people out there that have no idea what vaping is and many that have been given incorrect information about it. While vape enthusiasts are … continued


Star Wars: The Force Awakens…George Lucas Special Edition?!?

Posted on December 4th, by raymond padilla in Movies. 1 Comment

Most of us have been dazzled by the trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens and were thoroughly entertained by the LEGO version of the trailer, but are you ready for the George Lucas Special Edition? Whether you loved or hated the “enhanced” versions of the original Star Wars trilogy, you definitely need to check out this video. It takes the content of the trailer and (needlessly) adds all sorts of special effects. I’m confident that you’ll get a chuckle out of randomly seeing Jabba the Hutt and the … continued
