Freddie Mercury is still alive. Happy 69th Birthday!

He was my first love. It was a kind of magic. For those who never heard about, please have a look here http://www.freddiemercury.com/institutional and here https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freddie_Mercury

This smoke is dedicated to him. A Falcon pipe, made in Englang with a Meerschaum head, to give the propper meaning, a bit oriental, like Freddie.

The chosen tobacco is the Dunhill Elizabethan Mixture.

And now, I’m listening the song Radio GaGa, one of the most important song in my life from 1985, live in Wembley (London)

Have fun and sing louder then you can!

Here the lyrics ( http://www.queenwords.com/lyrics/songs/sng19_03.shtml)

I’d sit alone and watch your light
My only friend through teenage nights
And everything I had to know
I heard it on my radio

You gave them all those old time stars
Through wars of worlds – invaded by Mars
You made ’em laugh – you made ’em cry
You made us feel like we could fly
Radio

So don’t become some background noise
A backdrop for the girls and boys
Who just don’t know or just don’t care
And just complain when you’re not there
You had your time, you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio – radio

All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio what’s new ?
Radio, someone still loves you

We watch the shows – we watch the stars
On videos for hours and hours
We hardly need to use our ears
How music changes through the years

Let’s hope you never leave old friend
Like all good things on you we depend
So stick around ‘cos we might miss you
When we grow tired of all this visual
You had your time – you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio – radio

All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio goo goo
Radio ga ga
All we hear is radio ga ga
Radio blah blah
Radio what’s new ?
Someone still loves you

Radio ga ga (ga ga)
Radio ga ga (ga ga)
Radio ga ga (ga ga)

You had your time – you had the power
You’ve yet to have your finest hour
Radio – radio

Caribbean dinner: Trinidad & Tobaco cuisine


Hello there! This evening we had a dinner in a caribbean restaurant, from Trinidad & Tobago (http://trinidad-cuisine.de). A good friend of me, Damian, is come from Port of Spain, the capital of this tiny island. He still lives in Berlin but is moving to Karlsruhe, south of Germany, next week. So, we had a nice dinner together and other friends. For this special moment I choose one of my special pipes, a Dunhill Square Panel, as ODA in Shell from 1960. As aperitif we had a ginger beer with rum.

I ate some hot chicken curry with a lot of pepperoni. But they were so delicious that I tried to smoke them in my ODA, and capstan blue.

As digestif we had some rum, called White Oak. Smooth that didn’t overpower my tounge.

Now, sitting at home, I smoke another speciality, a Kriswill Bernadotte with capstan blue and a dark beer (Berliner Bock).

My Ferrari Testarossa

Hello there! Starting this autumn and greysh morning with something sofisticated. To bring colours to my soul. Together with a strong coffee.

A Dunhill pipe group 5 which has sporty performance, a real smoking mashine, like a Ferrari or Porsche are to the car industry.

tmp_16926-IMG_20150828_0946001481369807

I choose for this morning also a speciality: an aged MacBaren Dark Twist from the 70s. Smooth, sweet, sour and pepper are contained in this amazing vintage roll cake.

Jesus was born 2015 years ago

Hello there!
This afternoon went to the post office to get my box. The post office is in Berlin-Mitte, near Alexanderplatz, quite under the Berlin TV Tower (german: Fernsehturm, berlinish: Telespargel, https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Fernsehturm_Berlin).

This is what was inside:tmp_13841-IMG_20150827_160540-1329752054

Jesus was born apparentely 2015 years ago.
Now, time to come down having a Dunhill moment, a dresses billiard, huge, perfect to forget the shit around. With some Capstan Blue from 2012 and an espresso coffee. Now.

Good morning friends.

Yesterday, an old sport palast was burning down (http://www.faz.net/aktuell/politik/inland/berlin-feuer-in-sporthalle-neben-fluechtlingsunterkunft-13770586.html). It was supposed to be refunished and to give hope to some refugees from Syria. Obviously a terror attack from some members of the ‘arian power’.

tmp_15206-IMG_20150827_085756834075738

We will see.

Starting this morning with another easy pipe, a Dunhill group 4 as Pot and Chestnut finish, from 2001. As usual, with McClelland classic virginia. Now.

tmp_15206-IMG_20150827_085520-1329752054

Never then less, have a good day & mojo to you all over world.

From Berlin with love, p

A wise man

Enjoing a Hirschl & Bendheim corn cob ‘already toasted’ which I get it as gift from an American friend called Edward Blackstock. He is a remarkable connoisseur of corn cob pipes. A wise man. Smokes delicious with the McClelland 2015. Now. Peace and love from Berlin, p
