The tortures of adapting Samuel Richardson’s ‘Pamela’

The term “bestseller” is a bit of a stretch for the eighteenth century, when books were expensive (though widely shared), and information about print-runs is hard to come by. But if any early novel deserves the title, it’s Samuel Richardson’s Pamela, which on publication in 1740 rapidly caught the imagination of Britain, Europe, and indeed America (the Philadelphia printing by Benjamin Franklin was the first unabridged American edition of any novel).The author of this innovative novel was a lead...

Trend Alert: 8 Integrated Marble Kitchen Sinks

There’s something inherently luxurious about an integrated sink (no grime-filled seams to agonize over), especially when carved from marble. Here are 8 covetable examples. Above: An integrated marble sink in a kitchen by Belgian company Obumex. Above: An integrated marble sink (with drain board) carved from a huge slab of marble from the Hisnet Inlet quarry on Vancouver Island, as seen in one of our favorite kitchens of all time: Kitchen of the Week: A Monumental Marble Countertop. Ph...

Maison de la Luz: A Luxe New Guesthouse in New Orleans, by Atelier Ace

Now accepting reservations: Maison de la Luz, a soon-to-open guest house in New Orleans by Atelier Ace, the team behind Ace Hotels. It’s the team’s second opening without an Ace name tag (the other is Sister City, soon to open on New York’s Lower East Side). For old-world New Orleans feel (and a quieter, more private stay than trendy, hipster-friendly Ace hotels—no pool, no bar, no DJs), Atelier Ace enlisted a Remodelista favorite, LA-based Studio Shamshiri, to design the interiors. Take a sneak...

2nd Amendment Under Legislative Attack in Maine ~ VIDEO

Maine – -(AmmoLand.com)- Maine has always been a beautiful place for sportsmen and a well know place for those who like to hunt! Maine has also been very gun friendly for as long as one can remember. Well, that could be changing very soon as 25 anti-gun bills have been submitted in the 129th Legislative Session. It’s all there…Red Flag, Magazine Ban, Universal Background Checks, etc. No stone has been left unturned by those who will stop at nothing when it comes to stripping the 2nd Amendment...

The Way it Might Fit Together...

S o now it's way cold. Not complaining, just saying. I'm just sitting with this one. Wanting to do a video but it's just too cold in the studio. And not good at the phone video thing yet. Because we thought we wouldn't be here we didn't cut our own wood this year. Wood here is expensive and even more so this season, a story about that later. So not heating the studio. I cut away the cloth around the figure because i was intending to make a pillow and then I thought... I d...

Kitchen of the Week: Two Young Paris Architects Completely Redo Their Kitchen for Under $4,300

It’s been a heady few years for architect couple Hélène Pinaud and Julien Schwartzmann. The two, both 27, met as students at the Strasbourg National School of Architecture. After graduation in 2014, they moved to Paris and launched their firm, Heju, an abbreviation of their first names. They hit the ground running, designing apartments, boutiques, events, and a slew of clever DIYs: see, for instance, their Homemade Terrazzo Table, Metal Wall Organizer, and Tiled Plywood Side Table-Plant Stand wi...

Otonali, a Japanese-Inspired Restaurant in Brittany

New from French chef Bertrand Larcher, owner of the Breizh Café empire of Breton-style crêperies: Otonali, a restaurant in St.-Malo, Brittany, which combines traditional Japanese dishes with Breton ingredients and influences. Larcher opened his first crêpe restaurant in Tokyo back in 1996 and has since expanded to nine locations across Japan plus three in France: in Cancale, Paris, and St.-Malo. Though the crêperies are unabashedly in the Breton style—they use the traditional buckwheat batter an...

It’s 2019 and The Storm is Almost Here – Can It Be Stopped?

Opinion Comments by James Clary, Ph.D. and Mary Clary, B.S.N., R.N. It's 2019 and The Storm is Almost Here – Can It Be Stopped? USA – -(AmmoLand.com)-  At no time in our lives have we witnessed the country as being so divided. If one looks back in history, the divisions today between the left and right (coastal elites & middle Americans) are more severe and deeper than they were in early 1861. There seems to be absolutely no way that either side will compromise and move to the center for th...

A Master Class in Art Deco at the Graduate Hotel in Seattle

If you haven’t heard of Graduate Hotels, you will soon—especially if you live near a college town, have a college-age kid, or plan on attending a college reunion anytime soon. The hospitality chain—so far, 13-strong and growing—has plans to expand its empire of design-focused, campus-based hotels to 12 more locations by 2020, including a foray into the Ivy League this year with openings in Providence and New Haven. Its goal is to have a total of 100 properties in its portfolio in the next 10 yea...

Is this a Mystery Trope?

So I've just read "Star Trap" by Simon Brett which is the 3rd Charles Paris mystery. I think it qualifies as a "cosy" mystery because it's light on gruesome details and strong on character, setting and the puzzle element of the plot. Anyway, I don't read a lot of these but it's a nice change of pace occasionally. What I noticed, and I think I've noticed this before, is that the main character, Paris, who is an actor not a detective, but who is investigating the crimes, asks a lot of question...

Before/After: A Space-Enhancing Historic House Remodel in Melbourne

Carole Whiting spent 20 years producing television commercials while moonlighting as her architect husband’s design sidekick. Eight years ago, she finally signed on full time with his firm. Several design awards, a white-hot laundry room—and a divorce—later, Whiting now runs her own busy South Melbourne design studio leading a team of four. We happened upon her stylishly practical interiors on Instagram and asked to see more. Here’s a favorite recent project: a new chapter for a compact historic...

Carbon tax myths

Over a two-week period in November 2018, the Camp Fire, the deadliest forest fire in California history, burned over 150,000 acres, killed more than 80 people, and destroyed some 18,000 buildings. A National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration report documents the unusually warm and dry conditions that sparked this fire. Each year sees new records being set for temperature extremes in the United States. Six of the ten hottest years on record have occurred since 2000. The six months ending thi...

From “odd,” “strange,” and “bad,” to reclaiming the word “queer”

How has the word “queer” been reclaimed by the LGBTQ community? This adapted excerpt from Keywords for Today: A 21st Century Vocabulary explains its evolution.The adjective queer poses etymological problems. Its sense of “strange, odd, peculiar, eccentric” is given an initial Oxford English Dictionary (OED) date of 1513; thus John Bale in 1550 writes of chronicles that “contayne muche more truthe than their quere legendes.” There is then another sense, recorded as obsolete, with a date of 1567: ...

The Curator of Broken Things trilogy is available for preorder

To me, this has to be one of the least traumatic and more productive month of December on record.  My novels are DONE !!! All 3 of them! Incredible. Absolutely incredible. And yet because the process happened so incrementally it feels natural. Normal.  A huge amount of mental preparation must be happening below the surface before a writer releases a book. Or 3. By release, what I mean is that the book stops being a private thing, and start belonging to everyone. Before releasing it, the book i...

Holiday Gift Guide 2018: Beyond the Scented Candle—7 House Gifts for the Host/ess

Am I the only one who thinks scented candles are not ideal as host/hostess gifts? Scent is such a personal thing, and how to predict the olfactory preferences of your host? Here are some alternative ideas that lean toward the practical (but with a touch of luxe): (N.B.: My friend Howard has the most elegant strategy; he contacts a local liquor store and has them deliver a lovely bottle of wine or a fancy fifth of scotch a few hours before the fete, so the host/ess doesn’t have to scramble.)

Joyeux Noël: How to Throw a Holiday Party the French Way

Ever since we featured Paris-based tableware shop Madame de la Maison on Remodelista a few weeks ago (see: Vintage French Style You Can Rent), we’ve been smitten by Ajiri Aki, the style maven and collectress behind the shop, who scours the best flea markets in France for vintage Limoges and styles the most beautiful table we’ve seen in a long while. When we heard that Aki was hosting a holiday dinner party for a small circle of French and expat friends, we asked for a behind-the-scenes look—and ...

Making music American: a playlist from 1917

The entrance of the United States into World War I on 6 April 1917 inspired a flood of new music from popular songwriters. Simultaneously, the first recording of instrumental jazz was released in April 1917, touching off a fad for the new style and inspiring record companies to promote other artists before year’s end. Victor and Columbia, the industry leaders, developed technological innovations that made possible the first recordings of a full symphony orchestra. These recordings are a sample o...

The Botanical Life: Inside Stylist Yasuyo Harvey’s Quiet London Remodel

After growing up in Japan and relocating to London to study in 2004, botanical stylist Yasuyo Harvey moved to the suburbs before her then-5-year-old son, Noah, started school. Her family’s circa-1930s house in Worcester Park came with a neighborhood full of young children, easy access to “the best Korean restaurant in London”—and daily inspiration for her graceful floral compositions. “The best plants are usually in the alleyways between houses or in someone’s front garden,” she told The Modern ...

That Hole In The New Samsung Phone Is Actually A Camera

As smartphone bezels continue to shrink, we’re starting to see some…interesting takes on how to accommodate the front-facing camera. Most phones go with the notch, but Samsung is taking things further by punching a hole in the display. The Samsung A8s (yes, the “S” is lower-case in the product name) is otherwise a typical mid-range phone: it uses the Qualcomm Snapdragon 710 processor, either 6GB or 8GB of RAM, and 128GB of internal storage—expandable with a microSD card.

Happier at Home: 7 Tips for Mindful Shopping

Short Fiction Wallace, Edgar: The Edgar Wallace Collection Vol 5; v1

Edgar Wallace was a prolific writer of short stories, often in the form of a series featuring the same characters and following a somewhat porous overall arc. Many of these series were collected and published many years ago: The Brigand (1927); Chick (1923); and so on. Collections of non-series short stories were also published many years ago, but these were often assembled in a rather slapdash manner with a lot of overlapping and repetition of stories. But there were many stories published in...
