NSSF – Mayors Play Blame Game as Lawlessness Grows

After downtown Seattle erupted in violence, armed citizens in suburban small towns guarded their local businesses. (Screen snip, YouTube, KING News) U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- Big city mayors must have a standard checklist in the back of their press briefing binders. That page would have one entry that would read: “When your failed policies create chaos, blame guns.” It would sound ridiculous, but that is what is happening. Crime is skyrocketing in New York City, Chicago, Atlanta and Seattle. T...

Bloomberg’s Bodyguards will Keep Him Safe from Collectivist ‘Protesters’ – for Now

While coming for Mike Bloomberg with pitchforks may have a certain schadenfreude appeal to it, the protesters are all in for socialism as long as someone else is paying for it. How about putting the chains on government instead of citizens, and lowering taxes and regulatory infringements on all? (NY Taxi Workers Alliance/Facebook) U.S.A. – -(Ammoland.com)- “Pitchfork Wielding Protesters Come For Mike Bloomberg In The Hamptons,” a July 2 HotAir headline observes. “More than 100 taxi drivers an...

A Home-Grown Alternative

I’ve recently been contributing the text for a book about high-end landscapes in the Hamptons, that playground of the wealthy at the eastern tip of New York’s Long Island.  A couple of features unite almost all of these retreats.  There has to be a huge “resort-style” swimming pool, of course, and beside that a large arbor for lounging made of ipé wood. Ipé is a tropical hardwood from Amazonia.  Aside from its handsome appearance – its rich, dark color has earned it the nickname “Brazilian walnu...

The Rising Blood Tide of The Alt-Left & the Real Threat of Antifa ~ VIDEO

The Rising Blood Tide of The Alt-Left & the Real Threat of Antifa U.S.A. –-(Ammoland.com)- Antifa violence is spreading across the country like a plague as politicians call for the defunding dismantling of police forces across the nation while doing nothing to control the choas.

All the Megapixels?

Only a dozen megapixels there. Many years ago, when the talk of the town was the D810, I remember several of my Nikon-shooting friends at first excited to grab one, and then a few months later lamenting their choice. For example, a friend of mine works for Getty and is responsible for shooting celebrities and events in New York. At 36 megapixels in 2013, he found himself with way too many images that were far too large, which complicated his media storage and seriously slowed down his wor...

Terri White: 'On good nights, I lost my phone. On bad nights, I lost my sanity'

I was a successful magazine editor, working my dream job in New York. But alcohol, and the ghosts of my childhood, took me to breaking pointMy life began in the village of Inkersall, just north of the Derbyshire town of Chesterfield. Mum and Dad collided when she was just 15 and living in a house teetering on a faultline. Their love crackled bright and quick after meeting in the pub, and a wedding was arranged for the day after her 16th birthday. My grandad, horrified and furious, made Mum an of...

Who Will Secure the Right of the American People to Keep and Bear Arms? PART ONE

Who Will Secure the Right of the American People to Keep and Bear Arms? PART ONE U.S.A. –-(AmmoLand.com)- We begin with one simple basic, indisputable, but melancholy truth: No Branch of our Government cares deeply about preserving and strengthening the Second Amendment to the U.S. Constitution; neither Congress; nor the U.S. Supreme Court; nor, for that matter, the Chief Executive of our Nation, President Donald Trump.

Global-Minded Throws by a Former Fashion Designer, Inspired by the Swedish Archipelago (and Art Deco, Peru, and Portugal)

Were it permissible for me to acquire any more throws (I wish it were, but it’s not—I have more blankets in my apartment than dinner plates), I’d order one from Johanna Howard‘s collection. Her throws are sustainable and fair-trade and have a classic-ness about them, yet they’re also full of unexpected colorways and patterns and pleasing details—a whipstitched hem, a celestial scatter of dots—which, as it turns out, are nods at Howard’s far-flung sources of inspiration, from Stockholm to Art Dec...

How do I describe that sensation of not feeling the effects of the atmosphere? When for a moment, there’s skin and air and self and the world seem as one?

Art and theater after Stonewall [podcast]

As we’ve seen over recent weeks, direct action is sometimes necessary in order to exact social change. On June 28, 1969 in Greenwich Village, a bastion for New York City’s gay community, a riot broke out after police raided the popular Stonewall Inn. The demonstration became the catalyst for the modern LGBTQ movement in the United States; it immediately led to organizing and the formation of gay rights groups in New York City, and the first New York Pride march occurred on the anniversary of the...

The "Into the Wild Bus" is gone

Every year, adventurous (and oft-unprepared) hikers who are fans of Jon Krakauer's book "Into the Wild" (1996) or the move based upon it have attempted the treacherous 20 mile trek on Alaska's Stampede Trail to the abandoned bus where Chris McCandless found refuge (until his death) in 1992. And frequently, hikers making the pilgrimage have had to be rescued. Two people have died during their trips to see the bus. From the New York Times: The tourist trap is now gone though. Last week, the A...

Audio Series: The Ancestor

Our   audio series "The Authors Read. We Listen."  was iriginally hatched in a NYC club during BEA back in 2012.

In light of all the social distancing and recommended reduction to group events, we're happy to help support those who have recently published, or will soon be publishing, a book. It's hard enoug...

Daughter’s connection to her late father grows like his roses

She thought of roses, her father’s roses. “Why don’t you grow them?” her friend asked. “You seem to have this fascination.” She explained that she couldn’t possibly grow roses. Roses require patience, which she has never had. That’s how it started. Marsha Buford had no idea she was about to experience the most amazing coincidence in the middle of a pandemic. It was April 10, about a month into the coronavirus lockdown. Marsha and her friend Darnell Elzy walked past Orange Lutheran High School th...
