Humor Lardner, Ring: My Four Weeks in France (1918), v1, 23 Feb 2019

When a newspaper sends its sports reporter (who is also a famous humourist) Ring Lardner to France in 1917 as a war correspondent, you don't expect a gritty tale of the trenches, and you don't get it. The chapter headings are the clue. 1: Dodging Submarines to Cover the Biggest Game of All 2: I Get to Paris and Encounter Some Strange Sights 3: I Try to Get to the American Camp— But Meet Disaster 4: Finally I Get to the American Camp; What I Find There 5: My Adventures at the British Front ...

Before & After: A “Not Too Brooklyn” Bachelor Pad in Park Slope, Transformed with Paint

Dan Mazzarini of BHDM Design was given a mandate when it came to a dated apartment in Park Slope, Brooklyn: create a sophisticated and polished masculine retreat that was “not too Brooklyn” for the apartment’s bachelor owner, a book-loving lawyer with little time to fret about the details. The two-bedroom apartment was in good, if dated, condition, with a ho-hum mashup of middle-grade finishes, before Mazzarini got to work. He redid the whole apartment with several gallons of paint and a tight p...

Swiss B&T defends its GL06 Grenade Launcher

The French Police is using the B&T Swiss-made GL06 launcher in 40mm caliber, which they re-named LBD40. The B&T GL06 launcher is produced to work with the 40 mm B&T SIR less-lethal ammunition, which B&T calls a state of the art in point-of-aim & point-of-impact less lethal systems for public order, law enforcement and peacekeeping operations.

Steal This Look: The $4K Parisian Kitchen from Two DIY Experts

You might think the impressively low price tag ($4,200) is what makes this renovation from Parisian designers Heju so exceptional, but it’s also the size. The kitchen is nested in a chambre de bonne, Paris’s answer to worker’s housing in the top floor garret of most buildings. The rooms are typically 65 to 130 square feet; they’re impossibly small (I know because I lived in one for a year) and any semblance of a kitchen is rarely functional. But Heju solved the problem with grey and white color-...

Centennial: Harlem Hell Fighters Of World War I

Harlem Hell Fighters USA – -(AmmoLand.com)- One hundred years ago, on February 17, 1919, the African-American 369th Infantry Regiment, popularly known as the Harlem Hell Fighters, marched up Fifth Avenue into Harlem in a massive victory parade in their honor. This year marks the centennial of the United States’ entrance into World War I — a conflict that claimed millions of lives, redrew the world map, and changed war forever. Countless stories of heroism and hardship emerged from the fight i...

Stacked-Up Book Thoughts: A Great Reading Week

I've reached that point where cabin fever is starting to set in. The sleet or ice or cold or snow has kept me cooped up inside and made me miss way too many outdoor walks. It's driving me crazy! We finally started the new season of True Detective. I like it but need to see a few more episodes before commenting. We finished the Netflix series You, which started out strong, but I was less enamored by the end. We also finally watched the movie Room, which I liked. It's been too long since I re...

800 Illuminated Medieval Manuscripts Are Now Online: Browse & Download Them Courtesy of the British Library and Bibliothèque Nationale de France

Kazuo Ishiguro’s novel The Buried Giant begins with an immersive depiction of what it might have been like to live in a European village during the middle ages. Or what it might feel like for us moderns, at least. The couple at the center of the story spends several pages fretting over the loss of a candle, their only one. Without it, their nights are pitch black. In the day, they wander in a fog, unable to remember anything. Though the cause of this turns out to be dark magic, one can’t help t...

Will Diversity Be the Death of the Democrats?

Anti Gun Democrats U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Both of America's great national parties are coalitions. But it is the Democratic Party that never ceases to celebrate diversity — racial, religious, ethnic, cultural — as its own and as America's “greatest strength.” Understandably so, for the party is home to a multitude of minorities. It is the domain of the LGBTQ movement. In presidential elections, Democrats win 70 percent of Hispanics, Jews and Asian-Americans, and 90 percent of African-Americ...

The Religion of Pure Equality, Don’t Fall for this False GOD

Opinion Equality for Thee, but NOT for Me Ft Collins, CO –-(Ammoland.com)- “Socialism confuses the distinction between government, and private, enterprise. As a result, every time we object to a thing being done by government, socialists insist that we object to its being done at all! We disapprove of state education. Socialists claim that we’re opposed to all education. We object to a state religion. Socialists claim that we’re opposed to all religion. We object to a state-enforced equalit...

Regola by Matteo Thun for Listone Giordano

Regola by Matteo Thun was recently part of the Listone Giordano hardwood flooring exhibit at BAU 2019 in Munich. Inspired by “pure geometric form reminiscent of New York’s atmospheres in the early 1900s,” Regola revels in the grid. Its different modules can be combined to create linear patterns that showcase balance alongside the beauty of wood. Like all Listone Giordano flooring, Regola uses multi-layer technology with transversal incisions and micrometric joints to stabilize the hardwood flo...

What the Paris Peace Conference can teach us about politics today

One hundred years ago, the treaty of Versailles, the centerpiece of a set of treaties and agreements collectively known as the Paris Peace Settlements, was signed in the glittering hall of mirrors in the former home of France’s Sun King. For some, the war it brought to an end marked the final chapter of a distinct period in international relations, one dominated by a European states system that had endured since the Middle Ages and in which military conflict was relatively commonplace.Anniversar...

10 Things Nobody Tells You About Zellige, the Trendiest Tile of 2019

You might not know the name (yet), but you’ve seen them: zellige tile (also known as Moroccan tiles, zellige terracotta tiles, and zilij) is are the trendiest tile of 2019. We’ve seen it pop up everywhere we look the past few weeks and months, from a villa in France to a trendy house in Hudson to a cottage on Cape Cod. Its appeal? A handmade, slightly imperfect charm, very different from perfect and easily produceable subway tile. If you’re thinking about installing the tile of the moment in you...

Before Wallis - Edward VIII's Other Women ~ Rachel Trethewey

First things first, I must now confess to a complete blank on the lineage of the House of Windsor. What a disgrace. Well, the early days of the House of Windsor that is, created in 1917 to break with any prior associations with Germany... but who exactly were the brothers and sisters, the children of King George V and Queen Mary? I've sorted it out now but I can't believe I had never really paid attention and understood the place of Dukes of Gloucester and Kent in the grand Windsor scheme o...

Japonesque by Way of France: B-Raku Ceramics in Brittany

Not long ago we posted on Otonali, a Breton-style creperie in Brittany, designed by Guillaume Terver of Paris-based studio Le LAD. Today we’re taking a look at the adjoining B-Raku ceramics studio. The Japanese term raku describes a technique for the production of ceramic objects at low temperature, from 800 to 950° C. Each piece is baked a first time, then is coated with a second coat of enamel before being subjected to a second baking. During the second firing, the applied coating melts to cre...

Leave Brigitte Macron alone. We French need to lay off our first ladies | Agnès Poirier

France has long loved the idea of a powerful woman pulling the strings of the presidentIt’s almost a ritual. In France, it takes only a few months after the election of a new president for essays, pamphlets, picture albums, novels even, about the great man’s political ideas – but also his “true” or “hidden” personal story – to start flooding bookshops. More surprisingly, and perhaps more revealingly, France’s first ladies get a similar treatment.Although Emmanuel Macron has been in power for onl...

Pierre Casteran And Bill Cunningham

Pierre Casteran was the son of a wealthy French family who visited Blithewold several times in the 1950s and 1960s. The late Bill Cunningham, as many are aware, was the American fashion photographer for the New York Times, known for his informal street photography. The connection between the two men became apparent when I met Bill Cunningham at the 2009 Blithewold Gala. He came to record the event for his Sunday New York Times page of beautiful people in beautiful gowns! Bill sought me out to as...
