September Song” is an American pop standard composed by Kurt Weill, with lyric by Maxwell Anderson, introduced by Walter Huston in the 1938 Broadway musical Knickerbocker Holiday. It has since been recorded by numerous singers and instrumentalists. Although the song was written as an old man’s lament for the passing of his youth, some of the most famous versions have been recorded by women artists. Thus Sarah Vaughan‘s version of 1955, and Ella Fitzgerald’s with pianist Paul Smith are both regarded as Jazz classics.

Premiere - Over and Under - E.J.Churchill

The poor guys who have met me on Call of Duty know that I’m a firm believer in shotguns. So when I heard about E.J. Churchill and its fine guns, I wanted to learn more ! Just like the famous Benelli, Beretta and Browning shotguns, E. J. Churchill Gunmakers have been synonymous with fine hand made English shotguns for over 120 years, today E. J. Churchill Gunmakers still uphold these qualities throughout its range of the very best guns and rifles. Regal, Hercules, Imperial or Premiere are some of the names of these masterpieces of style, grace, balance, durability and innovation. Most guns are entirely bespoke to meet clients’ demands and desires. I hope one day I’ll have a gun like that hanging somewhere in my living room! (link)

There is a mistery and a particular weight of tradition that makes pipe smoking rare these days. However, I believe there are very few moments in life that ressemble more to the attitude of the old world’s wealth and arrogance. Pipe smoking is a manly obscene art, smelly and tasty. Myths and legends surround many brands that still manufacture pipes but the time when fathers tought their sons how to properly light a pipe up is over. Fortunately though, I did some extensive research lately and here are a few instructions that I hope will make you ask your dad’s pipe or even buy your own !
