Mouseguns, Then and Now

A frequently-encountered fixture at the gun store is the crusty old dude leaning on the doesn't matter if he's leaning on the employee side or the customer side, he's there somewhere...and intoning that all these new-fangled nine millimeter pistols are silly and calibers don't count for self defense unless they start with "four". Given the persistence of this hoary myth, where did all those .38, .32, and even .25 handguns come from back in the good ol' days? For starters, dispe...

Opinions on Dan Wesson?

Specifically the model 15 in .357 magnum. I just snagged a nice example with a lot of extras for cheap money. I've never had a DW. Had Rugers and Smiths and others but this is my first DW. Feels solid and well built with really nice bluing. Guessing it's from the 1970s. This example appears almost unfired due to how clean it is and the rifling is very crisp.

Keeping it in the Family

Outdoor parents share their tips and tricks for adventures with kids. Before each backpacking trip, Nick Brooks would take out all of his gear for the weekend and lay it out in the hallway.  As a self-described “gear head to the core,” this was his way of making sure all of the equipment, from his sleeping bag to cook system, was working and accounted for. Brooks noticed his three-year-old son, Preston, taking an interest in what he was doing. “My oldest would start taking my gear out ...

November Customs’ Ducati Scrambler 350 Restomod

Most custom shops have a bike or two quietly lurking in the corner. They’re usually personal projects that only get attention during gaps between ‘real’ jobs. And that’s the story of this charming 1974 Ducati Scrambler 350. Paul and Linda—the husband and wife team at November Customs—first spotted the Ducati when a nearby shop imported it from Spain. They literally bought it as it was being off-loaded, with the intention of giving it a light sprucing. But once they had it road legal and regis...

Watch The Smiths Play Their Last Live Show (December 12th, 1986)

It couldn’t have lasted—a flame burning twice as bright, and so on. One of the best bands to emerge from the explosion of British new wave and post-punk in the 1980s, The Smiths built a template for thousands of mope-rock bands who followed. Longstanding animosity has meant that their brief time together contains their total legacy. No reunion shows or albums—despite rumors over the decades since they broke up in 1987; no ersatz version of the band, missing key members but limping ever o...

Watch Johnny Marr Play The Smiths’ “This Charming Man” Live As A Solo Artist For The First Time

Johnny Marr's nimble, gleaming guitar parts were as essential to the Smiths as Morrissey's biting wit and unique vocal prowess. The man's a genius, and although he performs a number of his Smiths classics in concert, before last night he'd never before performed "This Charming Man," arguably his finest collection of riffs.

Pete Shelley: the smart, sardonic punk bard of unrequited romance

Packed with hooks and waspishly funny lines, the Buzzcocks frontman effortlessly created singles which became part of the musical landscapeIf Peter McNeish had done nothing more than organise the Sex Pistols’ June 1976 gig at Manchester’s Lesser Free Trade Hall with his college friend Howard Trafford, then he could still reasonably have claimed to have made a vast impact on the face of rock music.

How this CEO used a simple system to nail his work-life balance and build a company that just sold for $8 billion (SAP)

When a company offered to buy Ryan Smith's startup Qualtrics for more than $500 million in the early 2010's, he asked his wife to take a drive. The deal, and the amount of money it would net his family, was a lot to process.  But after just 30 minutes of driving south, the couple decided to turn it down. They felt earning so much money at once could negatively impact the way they were raising their children.  And although Smith had been running his business for nearly a decade, he had gotte...

Meet the CEO who once turned down a $500 million offer for his startup — and just sold it for $8 billion (SAP)

A little over six years ago, Qualtrics CEO Ryan Smith turned down a $500 million acquisition offer for his bootstrapped company. He was betting that he and his two cofounders, who happen to be his father and brother, could build their company into something far, far bigger. Over the years, he took venture investment at multibillion-dollar valuations while maintaining a profitable company. On Sunday, he sold his company to SAP for $8 billion. While it's impossible to know what his take is, Busi...

‘Ant-Man and the Wasp’ Director Peyton Reed Discusses Notes From Kevin Feige and His Days Playing in a Smiths Cover Band [Interview]

Peyton Reed, the director of Down with Love and drummer of a long defunct Smiths cover band, once again brought some feel-good laughs to the Marvel Cinematic Universe with Ant-Man and the Wasp. The sequel was a bit bigger, a little looser, and even Scott Lang was funnier, but Reed and all involved still managed to keep it as contained and as cleanly told as the first movie. Reed’s Ant-Man still ain’t going big for the sake of going big. Reed basically made what was a large-scale studio comedy w...

After nearly two decades away, Matt Johnson and The The back return to Southern California for a pair of shows and a documentary screening

There really wasn’t one thing that led singer-songwriter Matt Johnson to stop making music as The The after the 2000 album “NakedSelf” and a final live show at the David Bowie-curated Meltdown Festival in London in 2002. There were children and relocating from New York City to Europe. The collapse of the music business as streaming services emerged and record labels focused more on pop hits than eclectic album artists. There were deep, personal losses in that time, too. “That gave pause,” Johnso...

Nirvana Refuses to Fake It on Top of the Pops, Gives a Big “Middle Finger” to the Tradition of Bands Miming on TV (1991)

The better-safe-than-sorry approach to musicians pretending to play on TV while viewers hear a pre-recorded track seems like the antithesis of rock and roll. Yet since the earliest days of The Ed Sullivan Show, audiences have accepted the convention without complaint. When the fakery unintentionally fails, reactions tend toward mockery, not outrage. Critics rail, the UK’s Musician’s Union has often balked, but bands and fans play along, everyone operating under the presumption that the b...
