    Ever Heard the Electric Device Orchestra? If Not, Here Ya Go...

    Yes, it's real. (Meaning it's what you'd hear if you were in the room. It's not some overlaid computer mix.)

    Decided to Change My Name

    I feel a spiritual connection to two geographic names. The first is a hill in New Zealand, and the second is a town in Wales: Taumatawhakatangihangakoauauotamateaturipukakapikimaungahoronukupokaiwhenuakitanatahu Llanfairpwllgwyngyllgogerychwyrndrobwllllantysiliogogogoch The problem is that...

    Home Brewed "Hybrid" Pipe

    . If an early 1920's "swan neck" Dunhill (think CK) had sex with a late 20th century Scandinavian pipe, the result might look something like this. It's pretty big. Not giant, but definitely a chonky boi: 8" long, 135 grams

    The UFO

    "...911, what's your emergency?" "Yessir I see a fireball shaped UFO in the sky. Been watchin' it for twenty minutes, so I ain't imaginin' it, neither." "Can you confirm its position?" "Just above the city limits, uhhh... lesseee.... to the west" "Are you sure that isn't the sunset?" "No...

    Dog For Sale

    A guy is driving around the back roads of Arkansas and he sees a sign in front of a broken down shanty-style house: Talking Dog For Sale He rings the bell and the owner appears and tells him the dog is in the backyard. The guy goes into the backyard and sees a nice looking Labrador...

    Flippin' That Hunger Switch, Burger-Style

    A 100% coverage, edge-to-edge sear is trickier to do at home than you'd think---there are several must-do's and don't-do's---but worth the effort. Yum Yum :col: .

    Scottie Piersel Interview

    OK... It's a bit murky, but the copyright thing regarding an old P&T article seems to be that if it was OK with the author, Chuck Stanion & Co. were fine with it. I know the KC club used to do it routinely in their monthly electronic newsletter, and the editor of THAT was one of the most...

    Question for Kevin

    What is the situation regarding P&T article "reprints" here, on your board? I'm curious because both the magazine and the company which owned it are defunct, and I have no idea how (or if) copyrights apply in such situations.

    How the World Works, Part 1

    "The most terrifying force of death comes from the hands of Men who wanted to be left alone. They try, so very hard, to mind their own business and provide for themselves and those they love. They resist every impulse to fight back, knowing the forced and permanent change of life that will...

    1954 Tanshell Dunhill Shape 475

    The 475 shape is one of my all-time favorites, partly because of its sheer minimalist practicality. Few designs are so NON streamlined and NON sexy. (I don't like pokers at all, though. Go figure...) Anyway, this one came from one of Kevin's sponsors, Dave Neeb, so wanted you guys to know...

    Why Only Simple & Absurd "Counterfeit" Pipes Exist --- An Explanation

    1 --- If the pipe to be conterfeited was made in a production line, the machinery and tools used left "fingerprint"-type indications/evidence that is more difficult to replicate manually than the pipe is worth, money-wise. Here is an example. Consider a common wooden clothespin. It's worth...

    Info About Dunhill's "Not For Sale" Pipes

    A recent thread about a "Not For Sale"-stamped pipe was closed because it was a completed sale. I thought you guys might want more info about the "line" because they come up occasionally on Ebay & etc. The story is they are fully completed and finished pipes that get set aside on rare...

    This Could Explain Why Some Bent Pipes are "Mysteriously Bad" Smokers

    This Dunhill had a snapped off tenon that required replacement. After drilling the "false mortise" to receive the Delrin insert, I was surprised to see a large blob of crud/fuzz/gunk still in the airway, just past the bottom of the drilled hole. I'd cleaned the airway with an alcohol-dipped...

    Tobacco Tastes Like...

    ...giant bug-covered fuzzy weeds that grew in mud and dirt that somebody cut down, took to a barn, and dried into papery sheets. Then (sometimes) even saturated with smoke or packed into barrels... and left there for years. To rot. MMMMmmmmmmmm... :) :) :)
