Brian Goulet Accepts the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge



If you haven’t heard about it yet, a new phenomenon has hit the social media circuit fondly known as the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. This challenge involves people getting doused with buckets of ice water on video, sharing it on social media, and then nominating others to do the same. If you refuse to take the challenge, you’re asked to make a donation to the ALS charity of your choice (or, you can do both!). All of this was created in an effort to raise ALS awareness.

Rebekah, Brian’s sister-in-law, nominated him to participate in the Ice Bucket Challenge just yesterday. She just knew the fountain pen community would love it. He accepted the challenge and now nominates: 1) Brian Gray of the Edison Pen Company, 2) Stephen Brown, the YouTube sensation, and 3) Brad Dowdy of The Pen Addict. You have 24 hours to get drenched or donate (or both)! Who will you challenge? Good luck!

  4. Brian, that was great! How did Randall and Jessica get chosen for the dirty deed? Did you have a contest? And who is peeping behind the blinds in the background, looks like Adam to me, but hard to see. I hope you provide the links to the videos of the other nominees if they take the plunge, especially Stephen Brown.

  7. I keep a sketchpad in it, a holder for my cards, stamps and cash, and a perforated lines notebook to write letters when I'm out at a coffee shop to my friends and family back home :)

  8. Does anyone have insight as to alternative refills for the regular-sized traveler's notebook (i.e., 4.5 x 8.5 in.)?

  10. I are backwards. I use the Passport-sized cover from Renaissance Art and the Midori Passport sized refills.
