    Bing Crosby and White Christmas...

    These first two images show two different Bing shapes. This is a screenshot from the movie showing a panel pipe shape, This is the pipe he kept lit through the first performance of the song in the movie Holiday Inn (1942). Watching this scene you can see a well worn stain on the stem just in...

    Bing Crosby Ropp...

    Two years ago, a vendor I buy from offered me a couple of free pipes... at this time of the year. I had just bought this Ropp, from the 70s. One of the free Ropps I got at that time I just sent to AquaDoc... for his small bowl smoking delight. It was a Bing Crosby shape, and my favorite...

    Long/Slow Smoke Contests...

    I have seen these listed at meetings/conventions, but how do they work, beyond being the last smoker. What are the general rules? What tobaccos are best to practice? Are there limits to the pipe size used? === Found a nice link or two, but who has done it...

    Happy Owlidays

    Gone shopping for a fresh & festive holiday duck. [I thinking, "Ooo, snowy owl!". Snowy Owl is thinking, "Ooo, red-breasted mergansers!"]

    New Pipes: one odd & one old

    A couple of new guys arrived from Al Pascia, Milan Italy. Gift-wrapped of course, oh boy! The obvious oddity (top) is a Brebbia Duo Filter with "Selected" briar. So one 9mm in the stem and a second optional filter in the lower black reserve port. As a Catholic altar boy growing up, if on a...

    Making History: a new TV show with pipe smoking...

    "Making History" premiered last night on FOX. It is a light comedy about a time traveling maintenance man and a college professor. But there is pipe smoking... as well there should be! Here's Sam Adams (left) and John Hancock enjoying their colonial pipes. John Hancock offers some of Sam's new...

    A Wessex pipe...

    I couldn't resist this Wessex: leaning forward with soft finish and plenty of birdseye, trending toward that leather-look. Ordered from somewhere deep in the Black Forest (or maybe Berlin). Everyman, everday priced; 9mm, my preference. Searching the Forums, I found some interest in the Wessex...

    "Hey, you got peanut butter on my chocolate!"

    Latakia is my chocolate. So, I had some C&D Pirate Kake and some Peterson Perfect Perfect Plug leftovers; not enough for a bowl of each. I combined them. And the flinty-3P blended with the soft, dry Kake to made for a nice smoke. I am not a blender and have no interest in becoming one... but I...

    Auteur with Pipe for an Interview on Film...

    This interview of pipe-contemplating Jacques Audiard is on the A.V. Club website today. A.V. Club a twentysomething forum with terrific writing on film, TV, music, etc. -- by and for that young gen. There's a nice photo at the top of the page featuring the filmmaker and his pipe. Who knows...

    New Buckeye Blast (Smokers' Haven)...

    Premal Chheda was kind enough -- as busy as he's been lately -- to send me images of some new Buckeye pipes. I picked this one. Buckeye is their everyday line, while the Chheda pipes are the high end smokers. This brandy blast has a thick bowl and is stamped: "Buckeye USA 2016".

    Rattray's POTY 2016: My First Bulldog

    Got this new pipe today. It's a Rattray's Pipe of the Year 2016. This is my first bulldog! My own attempts to image this smooth above and rough below pipe just didn't work, so I pulled of couple of pictures of the actual pipe I bought from The Danish Pipe Shop site:

    Short and Fat (Not You, the Pipes)...

    Better to call them "stocky", right!? Both these pipes are under 5 inches long, but the bowls are big. Up top is a Poul Winslow (Crown of Denmark, so the everyday line) with a tall bowl. And that's a Chacom Giant below with a large-mouth bass bowl interior diameter. Both are kind of inexpensive...

    I might be a TAD crazy (warning: content contains "Penzance")

    I might be a TAD crazy, like a fox. Who's to say. I ripped open my all-Esoterica box/deal today (via free two-day shipping): Margate (2-8oz), Penzance (4 tins+8oz), and Stonehaven (2-8oz). The Penzance tins were retail-priced, Margate was retail (if you had to pay for good shipping). The...
