  • Hi Brian,
    Glad you had a good time in Texas. Did you get your Texas boots?
    I have know Chuck for many years, beginning in the late 1990s on the #Pipes IRC chat channel. That was when we chatted using a green screen and a keyboard. He fell into a great job with P&T. I was glad to see him at CORPS this year. I think I agree with Mark Twain regarding the antismoker and statistics. Chuck’s collection of pipe tampers is outstanding. I was glad to see it at one of the shows.
    Interesting, Twisted Sister and “Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas”. I haven’t heard that one on our local FM continuous Xmas music channel yet this year. I wonder why?
    Rant – Refusing to hire smokers is, to me, unconstitutional. The 30% premium for health insurance is just a peek at our future. I don’t plan to visit Pima County, Arizona in the future.
    Good Show.

  • Brian,
    As always the Pipe Parts segment was very informative. I am eager to hear how your blending turned out.
    Chuck seems to be a very interesting guy. I wouldn’t mind hearing an entire episode on his dissertation on Mark Twain. Very interesting stuff. I think a subscription to the Pipes and Tobaccos Magazine is now on the Christmas list. After every episode, that list keeps getting longer.
    I loved the music selection. It was great when they switched into Twisted Sister mode. I dig your eclectic music tastes!
    As a former resident of Arizona, it doesn’t surprise me what Pima County is trying to do. It seems that the anti-smoking influence from California is migrating east. How is that not discrimination? I can’t see how that is legal.
    Great show, yet again.

  • Another fine show.
    Bulk tobaccos aren’t my thing. As a smoking tobacco they don’t seem to have the intensity of flavor that tinned tobaccos do. And they do not age as well. The thought of me blending tobaccos should send tremors of fear through the entire pipe community.
    Chuck Stanion is just one of the jewels of the pipe hobby. He has one of the toughest jobs in the business. Trying to sell a print publication in an on-line world. His support of the KC Pipe Carving Contest has been both both substantial and appreciated. Every person who considers themselves a real pipe smoker should have a subscription to Pipes & Tobacco magazine.
    Concerning the music selection I guess the less said the better, but gosh that was awful. Why would you select a Christmas Carol to be “sung” by someone who can’t sing?? The next note he hits right will be the first one.

  • Another great show. I will be looking into a P&T Magazine subscription. As for the Twisted Sister Christmas selection, you either get it or you don’t. I am a child of 80’s metal and hair bands. I get it. We’re not gonna take it!! Thanks Brian.

  • Great interview. Lots that was educational and entertaining. The Mark Twain quotes were especially good.
