Fogos em Montreal / Fireworks at Montreal

Image by Marcio Cabral de Moura
Festival Internacional de Fogos de Montreal

L’International des Feux Loto-Québec, also known as the Montreal Fireworks Festival, is a major international fireworks competition. (It was formerly known as Le Mondial SAQ, and l’International Benson & Hedges.) It has been held yearly in La Ronde over the Dolphins lake, since 1985, and is named after its main sponsor, Loto-Québec. The display is hailed as the best and largest fireworks festival in the world. It hosts an estimated 3 million each year, with approximately 6,000 fireworks set off during each show.

Each summer, eight or nine pyrotechnical companies from different countries present a 30-minute long pyromusical show, competing for the Gold, Silver and Bronze Jupiters or trophies.

For the 20th anniversary in 2004, eight of the previous top competitors (all of whom had won the Gold Jupiter) were invited to fight for the unique Platinum Jupiter in June and July 2004, which was won in the end by the German company WECO.

The competition takes the form of a series of biweekly fireworks shows usually beginning in late June and ending in late July. The fireworks are synchronized to music which is also broadcast over a provincial radio station (RockDétente in 2005, Rythme FM 2006-onwards). Spectators can purchase tickets to have reserved seats in La Ronde: they can buy them on site, on-line or through the Admission group to obtain an exceptional view of the lower altitude display and the whole perspective. However, tens of thousands to hundreds of thousands of people watch the fireworks for free from nearby locations.

NYC – Brooklyn: Brooklyn Navy Yard – Building 11

Image by wallyg
The Brooklyn Navy Yard, also known as the New York Naval Shipyard (NYNSY), is located in Wallabout Basin, a semicircular bend of the East River. The waterfront site was used to build merchant vessels following the American Revolution. Federal authorities purchased the old docks and 40 acres of land in 1801, and it became an active US Navy shipyard in 1906. By the American Civil War, the yard had expanded to employ about 6000 men. In 1890, the ill-fated Maine was launched from the Yard’s ways.

On the eve of World War II, the yard contained more than five miles of paved streets, four drydocks, two steel shipways, and six pontoons and cylindrical floats for salvage work, barracks for marines, a power plant, a large radio station, and a railroad spur, as well as the expected foundries, machine shops, and warehouses. In 1937 the battleship North Carolina was laid down. The battleship Iowa was completed in 1942 followed by the USS Missouri (BB-63) and then in 1952, Antietam. At its peak, during World War II, the yard employed 70,000 people, 24 hours a day.

The Navy decommissioned the yard in 1966 and sold it to the City of New York. A few decades later, it became an area of private manufacturing and commercial activity. It now has over 200 tenants with more than 3,500 employees, and is managed and operated by the Brooklyn Navy Yard Development Corporation for the City of New York

A Fixer from Bristol, who shunned a life of crime and drugs because he wanted to make his mum proud, is campaigning to keep other young people out of trouble.

His story was broadcast on ITV News West Country (E) on Thursday 7th November.

Richie ‘Pine’ Royal (25) from the St Paul’s area of the city has made a name for himself through film-making, music and by starting a business, and hopes his Fixers project will encourage other young people to realise they can have aspirations too.

‘When I was growing up there were temptations to commit crime,’ he says.

‘But I used my talent. I started making music and videos and just said, "Yeah, I’m going to do something different.

Miles City Star Building

The Miles City Star Building, 818 Main Street, Miles City, Montana. Home of the "Miles City Star" newspaper, the Miles City Star Printing and Office Supply Store, and KATL 770AM Radio.

Before the "Star" was located in this building "Coast to Coast / Steadman’s Ace Hardware / Radio Shack" was located in this building. This building replaced the original "Coast to Coast" store which burned down in the early 1990’s (I think). The original "Coast to Coast" building housed "Reynold’s Grocery" before it became "Coast to Coast Hardware".

This is one of a series of snapshots chronicling the transformation of my 1961 Cadillac into the the WJUL Mobile Unit (aka "Christine").

I originally purchased this automobile in 1982 for 0 in California, just before my tour was up in the Marine Corps.

While attending the University of Lowell (Massachusetts), and as a member of the student-operated radio station (WJUL), it was decided that the car could be turned into a rolling version of the station’s bumper-sticker, just in time for the University’s "Spring Fling." The car was painted in exterior latex paint, with brushes and rollers, in the Cumnock Hall quadrangle. The station call-letters were hand-painted in the driveway of a fellow station member.

Sadly, the car met an inglorious end, left abandoned several years later in a storage facility in Tewksbury, MA

Why Do People Prefer Online Radio?

Studies have shown that listening to music while you are working can help you improve your results and your productivity. Sometimes you cannot take a CD player with you at work and the best solution is to listen online radio. Radios have been designed to satisfy the needs of all listeners: they help you keep in touch with the latest news, they play the best music and they also have interesting talk-shows to entertain you with.

The main advantage is that online radio can be listened anywhere in the world, so, even if you are abroad, you can still listen to your favorite programs. There have been various online radios launched lately, meaning that the competition is high. This is great for us, the listeners, because this means that the creators must improve everything to make sure that they will satisfy their old listeners while also gaining new ones.

Most online radios have very good DJ’s which try to communicate as well as they can with their audience. The best thing about online radios is that you can post your comments on the Internet.

If you have found the right online radio for you, but you hate to waste time searching for it every time that you turn on your computer, we recommend that you look for a radio software: there are various websites which provide this type of software, some of them even for free. You just have to make an account and you can afterward download the software to your computer. The main advantage is that you can select your favorite radio and store it, so that each time you turn on your computer, you can also turn on the radio you love. Ont he other hand, the main disadvantage is that you depend on your Internet connection – if you have problems with your connection, you will not be able to listen to the radio.

As we have said before, online radio is a great invention simply because people can choose the music they want to listen to and the news they want to hear. For example, there are many people who love country music but do not have the opportunity to listen to it because not many radio stations play country music. This is why, the online country radio has been launched. This is just an example of how many benefits the online radio has as a standard radio does not offer you the opportunity to choose your favorite music.

NYC – Greenwich Village: Electric Lady Studios

Image by wallyg
Designed by De Stijl member and Juliard’s then theater director, Frederick Kiesler, 52 West 8th Street’s first occupant was the Film Guild Cinema, which opened in 1929. Shortly after, Rudy Valley’s country-western nightclub, the Village Barn, opened in the basement where it honky-tonked for 30-plus years. Hans Hoffman, father of the "push pull" color theory and abstract expressionism, lived, painted and taught here from 1938 to 1958.

When The Generation Club, which replaced the Village Barn closed in 1968, Jimi Hendrix and his manager, Mike Jeffrey, bought the space for k with the intention of turning it into a club of their own. His accountant, however, convinced him that owning a studio would be more fiscally sound–predating the Beatles’ Abbey Road in an era when label owned and operated studios were the norm. Hendrix commissioned an upstart out of Princeton, John Storyk to architect the studio with the instructions for "soft", "curvaceous" and wherever possible "no right angles." Storyk would go one to develop over 2,000 studios, radio stations, clubs and theaters.

Construction lasted nearly twice as long and cost twice as much as expected, but Hendrix didn’t wait to start tracking recordings. Nearly 30 songs were recorded prior during this time, including most of "First Rays of the New Rising Sun" and hours of jams with Steve Winwood and Chris Wood of Traffic. Electric Lady Studios officially opened on August 26, 1970. That same night, Jimi left for England to play the Isle Wright Festival and only thirteen days later, was pronounced dead at the age of 27.

Under Director of Engineering, Eddie Kramer, Electric Lady would go on to be one of the premier recording spots of the early 70’s with artists like Stevie Wonder, Led Zeppelin, The Rolling Stones, Curtis Mayfield, David Bowie, John Lennon, Peter Frampton, Diane Warwick, Carley Simon, Kiss, Billy Coham, and Lena Horne taking up residence.

In the 1970’s, the 8th Street Playhouse took over the space upstairs, dedicated to independent film like its predecessor. It became the first true "screening" theater…no curtains or stage, just a screen. It also became the first theater to offer a midnight film seven days a week. By its closing in 1992, it was perhaps most famous for its 15 year-run of twice-weekly midnight screenings of the Rocky Horror Picture Show. Today the space is divided between indepndent video rental store, TLA Video, and off-Broadway theater, The Independent. TLA stands for the Theater of Living Arts and was founded by Andre Gregory of My Dinner with Andre.

Electric Lady Studios continues to prosper as Manhattan’s oldest existing recording facility. The client list has grown more impressive with each passing year. A laundry list of those to lay tracks includes the White Stripes, Radiohead, U2, Lou Reed, Michael Jackson, Guns N’ Roses, Mariah Carey, Prince, Madonna, Santana, Eric Clapton, Al Green, Jay-Z, Frank Zappa, The Notorious B.I.G., Bjork, Placido Domingo, Whitney Houston, The Beastie Boys, Bjork, Aretha Franklin, The Roots, Weezer, Common, AC/DC, Alicia Keys, Stevie Ray Vaughan, Al Green, the Dave Matthews Band, and Placido Domingo.
