20:15 with Pete Johnson


It is that time of year again. Pete Johnson of Tatuaje Cigars visits W.Curtis Draper and we talk about what to look forward to in 2011. I’m sure some of you have heard about some of the new releases he has planned for 2011 and hopefully this video gives you more details and puts some rumors to rest. Nothing like going to the source for the good word. What interview with Pete Johnson would be complete without a status update on the Monster Series? Pete seemed a little wishy washy with the answer he gave that the Monster might not happen this year. He had some reservation last year when I interviewed him but The Face still was released. This time around though, I really got the feeling that the Monster Series might actually be on a hiatus. In addition to that, a Saints and Sinners update, find out who Pete thinks deserves a kick in the nuts and what exactly is making him fat and gray?

A quick production note. I shot this video using a new Canon 60D with a Tamron 28-75mm f2.8 lens on a tripod. Took a little getting use as I only played with the video features for like 5 minutes to do sound testing. Hopefully my wife lets me use it more as I’m all about consolidation. Anyway, thanks for watching. I hope you enjoy the video as it took some 22 takes to finally get the video with Pete “Troublemaker” Johnson.
