The host would giggle at her shitty English, she'd do some kind of funny dance or musical performance, and everyone would laugh. Throughout each segment, she'd constantly repeat ... Read More
Ahh, New York City: the original, glorious melting pot. Yet unless you make a conscious habit of touring the cobblestoned side streets of the Lower East Side or popping into the Tenement Museum every now and then, it can be easy to forget that the whole of this island was once a grimy, industrial, cluttered port. Well... okay, so it's still all those things. But it sure looked a lot cooler in the 1900s, no?*  Thanks to a collection of high-res images at Shorpy ... Read More

Meet Hilda, the voluptuous vixen of America’s pin-up era. A creation illustrator Duane Bryers, Hilda has not been widely received in the canon of Americana pin-up, but she should be. One of the only (if not the only) full figured pin-ups, Hilda is been featured in calendars from the ‘50s to the early ‘80s, and she experienced a mild bout of fame in the ‘60s.   Hilda is a fantasy character out of Bryers’ head. According to him, ... Read More

Let’s first talk about what ... Read More
