    Sit back and rest your eyes on these outstanding vintage shotgun advertisements. They’ll make you want to round up the dogs and hit the fields. Here’s something fun and interesting to engage your daydreaming muscles for a few minutes, a nostalgia if you will. Check out these cool vintage shotgun photos interspersed with some old shotgun magazine advertisements from when you were a kid—or maybe even before that. I just love looking at well-composed photos of old firearms and old gun ads like the kind found in vintage sporting magazines. Who doesn’t? A lot of us, no matter our age,...

    A Sky News reporter has infuriated viewers by referring to last night's brutal attack in Nice as 'vintage Isis'. Viewers took to Twitter to chastise reporter Lisa Holland for her 'disgusting' choice of words, which they referred to as 'gutter journalism'. She used the words just a couple of hours after the attack which killed at least 84 people celebrating Bastille Day in the southern French city at around 10.30pm local time last night.

    For the last decade, Joanne Frances has been living life as if the Second World War has just broken out. The 41-year-old has eschewed modern life and technology in favour an authentic wartime existence. She no computer, washing machine, television or car – instead cycling to work on an 80-year-old pedal bike. Living most days in an authentic Land Girl’s uniform, she sometimes spends the evening in an air-raid shelter she built in the garden. The woman, who works as a cleaner, has committed to the austere life of the 1940s – having ditched central heating for coal fires and...

  • The controversial Miss Vintage UK who claims that women who dress like Miley Cyrus encourage men

    Although victory rolls and ankle length skirts may seem a little dated to many women in their twenties, for one it is a way of life. Holly Foster, 22, prides herself on her lady-like attire, adopting the style of women in 1950s, which has recently seen her crowned Miss Vintage UK. However, her floral prints and pearls are more than just a style statement as Holly says dressing this way - and 'not like Miley Cyrus' - is the only way to demand real respect from men.

  • 1967 Corvette with 2,996 miles to be offered at auction

    autoweek.com ^ | 2-26-2014 | Jay Ramey
    People generally buy a Chevrolet Corvette planning to drive the wheels off it, but examples with absurdly low mileage have to come from somewhere. Cars suffer a small breakdown and are parked for years, owners suddenly pass away and their children don't know what to do with the cars, vehicles get donated to museums... the list of usual suspects for something like this is pretty limited. But the story of this unrestored and completely original 1967 Chevrolet Corvette with just 2,996 miles on the clock is a new one for us. Here's what we know: Don McNamara turned 30 in...

    t may be 2014 to the rest of us, but for the subjects in Jennifer Greenburg’s photographs, it is still 1951. The assistant professor of photography at Indiana University Northwest has been photographing America's Rockabilly community for more than ten years; people that not only dress like it’s the Fifties, but also drive perfectly preserved Cadillacs and decorate their homes with furniture to rival the retro sets of Mad Men. 'At first I thought the culture was about fashion,' the 36-year-old photographer told MailOnline. 'Then I realized it was much, much, more than that. I realized that this was a...

    "This stammer got me a home in Beverly Hills...I'm not about to screw with it now!" Bob Newhart (Oak Park, Illinois 9.25.1929) is an American comedian, author, and TV/film actor known for a deadpan style and trademark stammering and hesitant delivery. His hugely successful career spans over four decades, and the man is nothing less than an American comedy legend... Bob Newhart's career was launched by his 1960 comedy album The Button-Down Mind of Bob Newhart -which acutally went to #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and remains to this day the 20th best-selling LP of any kind... in history.  Not...

    Pajamas Media ^ | 4-14-08 | John Rosenthal
    Apart from the sheer mass of the Clintons’ earnings, perhaps the most intriguing revelation contained in the release of the Clinton tax data last week was that Bill Clinton received a whopping $15 million advance in 2001 for what would become his autobiography, My Life. As even the New York Times noticed, this was significantly “larger than previously thought” — or, more exactly, than previously reported. For example, an August 7, 2001 article in the Times puts the figure vaguely at “over $10 million.” A Wall Street Journal report from the following day cites a more concrete figure of “close...

    How it all began....... The New London to New Brighton Antique Car Run began in 1987 during New Brighton’s Centennial Celebration. The City added the Run to its calendar of events that year as a way of strengthening its namesake ties to Brighton, England. Complete with a visit by the Mayor of Brighton and other English guests, the 1st Annual Antique Car Run was held with 17 participants. The Antique Car Run is an American version of the prestigious London to Brighton Commemorative Run held annually in England. This grand daddy of runs began in 1896 to celebrate the repeal...

    25 Horribly Sexist Vintage Ads by Oral Adams Since the 50’s, a lot has changed in way of women’s rights and their duties in and out of the house. I highly doubt any company could get away with phrases like “The Chef [mixer] does everything but cook – that’s what wives are for!” nowadays. Or how about an ad agency pitching a company an idea of a wife bent over her husband’s knee as he prepares to spank her.
