We welcome back our guest and Pentertainment Podcast sponsor Bryce Gillett from Luxury Brands of America. We spend an excessive amount of time discussing a $6 plastic accessory that's perfect for fountain pen ink lovers. I read some disgruntled comments to my Waldmann Xetra Vienna fountain pen YouTube short video. I attempt to Mr. Miyagi a mosquito that's trying to implant eggs into my skin. We also talk about one of the hottest Italian brands that Bryce started to carry this year.

In this special episode of the PenBoyRoy Pentertainment Podcast, I pay a visit to the Goldspot offices where we launch the new Retro51 Amadeus rollerball pen, created by yours truly. This pen is very special to me, as it is the fruition of my love for Mozart, combined with my creative concepts. I am ever grateful to my good friends at Goldspot pens for making this happen! I hope you enjoy the episode.

I visit Goldspot Pens in Aberdeen, NJ to take a stroll down memory lane with my co-host, Mr. Odd Oink, and Sal Mehra, the co-owner of Goldspot Pens. We jump into the Wayback Machine to view what the Goldspot website looked like in ancient history (2002). We discuss how Sal & Kiran started Goldspot and how they got into pens. We also talk about what makes watches so much more appealing and justifiably expensive than pens.

Coming in late October 2021, Luxury Brands of America introduces 5 new colors of the Benu Briolette fountain pens, including 4 designs that glow in the dark. Seriously, if you like color and sparkly pens, you need to have a Benu on your desk. It makes writing the most mundane notes exciting.

What better way to start off a pen podcast than by talking about... pens! Tom and I have a full-blown discussion on why we enjoy using Kaweco Sport fountain pens, the various versions of the Sport, and why I trashed a Goldspot-exclusive Transparent Turquoise Sport Pen. We also talk about metal sections on acrylic pens. And, I call baloney on "Tom's Favorite Pens."

You'll be jumping for joy over new fountain pens from Italian manufacturer Gioia. Coming soon are four new Alleria fountain pens in four gorgeous acrylics - Blue Grotto, Twilight, Amarnth, and Vittoria. They have Italian names, but I don't want to butcher the pronunciations like Brad Pitt did in Inglorious Bastards.

If you'd like to listen to a podcast about pens, you may want to seek about 20 minutes into this episode for the first glimpses of pen conversation. Yet, I know that all of you are looking for so much more than two guys talking about fountain pens. Tom and I talk about fish care, the origins of Monopoly, the Mandela effect, an alternate ending to the movie Ghostbusters, and finish things off with Tom's impression of the Macho Man Randy Savage.

This episode is also brought to you by Luxury Brands of America. Bryce left us a voice memo reminder to tell you about all the new Waldmann writing instruments coming in from Germany this month - including the Tango Imagination, Tuscany Vela, and Frosted Ruthenium styles. We also talk a bit about the Waldmann Grandeur's price drop. You're welcome, folks.

How many turns are too many for capping a fountain pen? Let's ask Mr. Owl. 
One. Tu-hooo. Thrrrree.... Three!
Tom and I discuss the difference between the original Esterbrook JR and the new JR Paradise fountain pen. We also wax philosophical on reviewing pens made by independent makers. Join us as we do some window shopping on wetandwise.com - Thanks for sending your pens in carbonite, Nabi!

No, this episode is not an hour-long sponsorship read. However, we do chat about some of the new exclusive pens and Jowo nibs at Goldspot as well as the new Platinum Preppy Wa (more on that below). Tom reads several hilarious #firetom comments. We discuss the efficacy of diets including Keto and Whole30.

The Platinum Preppy is high on the list of great starter fountain pens thanks to it's incredibly low price point. Platinum ups the ante with the limited edition "Wa" collection. Instead of boring solid color injection mold plastic, they printed traditional Japanese decorative motifs on 6 different color barrels. So, if you're looking for a special edition pen for less than $8, get your hands on the Wa.

While the majority of this episode has major positive vibes and gratitude for the pen community, it wouldn't be the Pentertainment Podcast if we didn't lay the smackdown. We throw some shade on the frosty white peak of Montblanc. For example, why would they hire an actor like Cillian Murphy to be a spokesperson for their products? Maybe because he can convince people that he likes writing with a Montblanc pen when he really doesn't care? Perhaps, in five years, they could cast someone that looks exactly like him to promote a new ink that's really repackaged Beatles Psychedelic Purple. #montblancgate

While the PenBoy might not drink in real life, it's going to be impossible to turn down a Bourbon fountain pen from Benu. Hopefully, Bryce from Luxury Brands will send me one for review. This pen has an intoxicating sparkliness that will leave you thirsty for more ink. Pick one up at your favorite Benu pen retailer.

It wouldn't be the Pentertainment Podcast if you didn't get your healthy dose of veggies and juvenile humor. This episode guarantees that you'll have more fun than the Tooth Fairy at a dentist convention. We talk about a number of new pens, including big, girthy ones from Waldmann and Gioia. You won't want to miss a second, so set your kitchen timer so you don't burn anything in the oven.

In this episode, we talked extensively about the lovely pens from our friend Bryce at Luxury Brands of America. Replacing my beloved Waldmann Commander is the impressive Grandeur collection. It's huge, made with sterling silver, lacquer, and platinum-plated appointments. To complement its grand size, the fountain pen has a number six nib made by Jowo. Check out the Waldmann Grandeur coming soon to most Waldmann pen retailers in the USA.

My accountability partner and I discuss the lovely Laban pen that Jerry handed me at the DC Pen Show. We venture into bougie territory with S.T. Dupont pens and lighters. Tom still didn't watch my Kenro "Storytellers" Instagram interview. So disappointing. Almost as disappointing as his taste in movies that don't include Brendan Fraser. Speaking of movies, we discuss the scenario in "Passengers" and how we would make Chris Pratt's decision in the movie. Spoiler alert - there are spoilers. To spoil your ending - the credits are really long and set against a black background.

Luxury Brands of America introduces yet another astounding Waldmann pen. Both Tom and I love the Tuscany pen. We've done video reviews on this pen design in the chocolate finish. Now, Waldmann takes it to a new level with the Vela rose gold and Frosted Ruthenium finishes. You'll love the attention to detail and the richness of its appealing design. Coming soon to most US Waldmann retailers, including Goldspot Pens.
