Bottom End Like a 64-foot Organ Pipe

This thread is an attempt to draw out WSerad to make a post.

Black, black slices of fudgey asphalt-like cake, Stonehaven is a blend of air-cured leaf and Burley with dark Virginias. It is pressed in the classic flake fashion and aged, making it extraordinarily smooth. This is a marvelous achievement, bringing a technique usually reserved for all-Virginia flakes to the Burley world. There are a few Burley flakes around, such as Edgeworth slices and one from House of Windsor, but this takes things to a new place. This is generally dark in flavor, with a bottom end like a 64-foot organ pipe. The slices are shag-thin, and rub out into long, black strands. Lighting was easy, as was keeping it lit. It is startlingly cool, and the flavor is of the darkest richness.There is not much on the market like this. Not for the weak-kneed, I would heartily recommend this to the Burley boys, and to the flake folk who want to know how good Burley can be.

Fainin should be in this thread. That 64' pipe sounds like a monster fart.

Reminds me of the old joke ...

Q: Why did Bach have so many children?
A: His organ didn’t have any stops.

As a long time fan and performer of Bach's music, I heartily approve of this post.

Perhaps I’m not so smart. I have been busy with life. And then there were the ungracious exchanges in theological discussions...

I can be for short dashes. For long distances, I just revert to cranky old man status.

As the world learned last weekend, Shakira has a bottom end like a 64-foot organ pipe.

Does she have a pipe zippo? Can she tell me the price of Balkan Sobranie at the PX in '69?

A) I have several pipe Zippos, swear by them, but no suspenders (unless you count the straps on chest waders).

B) Where in New Jersey, Mr. Serad? Curious. I grew up there.

C) I walked into chapel every weekday in college to the soul-stirring sound of great music and hymns played on a massive pipe organ - haven’t been in the presence of a pipe organ since, and I rather miss it.

D) Once earned, cranky old man status should be worn as a badge of honor. A pipe helps imagewise.

My dad and I performed Bach's Aire on a G String once. He played the pipe organ. I played my electric guitar with Ebow. It was awesome.

A. Belt only. I have my dignity.
B. Turnersville, Washington Township, Gloucester County, 20 minutes south of Philadelphia where I grew up.
C. Between Philadelphia and Atlantic City, we have some of the largest organs in the world. I was singing Mahler Symphony #2 “Resurrection” with the Philadelphia Orchestra, and when the organ kicked in during the last movement, I thought the choir balcony was going to fall down. Thrilling.
D. I was born old, according to my mother, and studied crankiness with some of the greats. I still believe crankiness to be a spiritual gift neglected in the Scriptural
lists. Some monk failed to copy it.

Before I help anyone with their taxes, I crank up my cranky old man status. It puts everybone in the proper mood, you see.

I'll store this away, but I'm pretty sure those questions will be a million miles from crossing my mind shall I ever meet her.
