America’s Deadliest Rock Concert: The Guest List premieres on the 19th anniversary of the murderous event

REELZ announced the network’s original documentary America’s Deadliest Rock Concert: The Guest List Premieres Sunday, February 20 at 8 p.m. ET / 5 p.m. PT featuring the deeply personal stories of lives forever changed by the tragic Station nightclub fire that left 100 dead, more than 200 injured and devastated the close-knit community of West Warwick , Rhode Island. It is also the story of the triumph of the human spirit, as evidenced by the resilience of a community and the recovery and rebirth of Joe Kinan, who was the last survivor of the fire and the most severely burned.

On the night of February 20, 2003, more than 400 music lovers gathered in the small nightclub of the Station. Just seconds after the ’80s sensation Great White took center stage, pyrotechnics ignited a fire that raced up the walls and through the packed hall ceiling. In less than 90 seconds, most of those who hadn’t yet managed to escape would be trapped inside. They would be burned alive, identified a few days later only by dental records or tattoos. The station fire was a perfect storm of human error that became one of the worst nightclub tragedies in US history. It remains America’s deadliest rock concert.

“Seen through the human lens of victims, survivors and their families, the fire and milestones of physical and emotional scar healing are all brought to light in this poignant televised event,” shares Steve Cheskin, vice president programming director at REELZ. “With an intimate glimpse of people who have been touched by the tragedy, it is a powerful portrait of humanity, from deep resentment and brutal suffering to the resilience and power of the community.”

“This documentary addresses the timeless themes of personal responsibility, loss, courage and forgiveness. Those linked to this event are struggling to cope with the consequences of the disaster – some with grace, some less. It’s an abject lesson about the tragic potential of bad decisions, ”adds documentary director David Bellino. “Local pride and the courage of the community shines through when interviewees recount the fire and reflect on their duty to both remember and move forward towards healing. Survivor Joe Kinan’s courage and even humor in the face of the horrific challenges he faced during his recovery are powerful reminders of the endurance of the human spirit.

Viewers will also see rare and shocking footage of the first news crews at the scene reporting on the gruesome event as the families of the victims eagerly awaited the news. First responders share their experiences of fighting the fire, dealing with casualties and dealing with the chaos as it unfolded.

“They said the building was 1,000 degrees inside. I could hear everything that was going on around me. The screams were quite loud. Then it got quieter and quieter. Then it was just me. I was like, ‘If I have a choice, I’m not going away like this.’ I heard the voice of a firefighter scream, ‘We have one here.’ I was placed on a stretcher and rushed to the nearest hospital. Weeks later, when I woke up from my coma, I immediately understood and accepted what was happening. I spent the next 50 weeks in the hospital. Even after I was discharged, at the end of each day, I felt like I had to go “home” to the hospital. It is one of the most comfortable and relaxing places for me to date, ”says Joe Kinan, who to date has had 136 surgeries, including a hand transplant. He will continue to need surgeries for the rest of his life. “This experience taught me that I am a tenacious person. I persevere every day.

America’s Deadliest Rock Concert: The Guest List is partially based on the book Killer Show: The Station Nightclub Fire, America’s Deadliest Rock Concert, written by John Barylick. who is a documentary production partner and lawyer / law professor in Rhode Island. His book is considered the first and most comprehensive exploration of the chain of events leading up to the fire, as well as its legal and human consequences.

“The mood of the crowd inside the Station went from celebratory to curiosity, to worry, to absolute terror in the space of about 20 seconds. It was a tragedy on a scale never seen before in Rhode Island. The site of the fire looked like the scene of a battle, fought and lost, ”comments John Barylick. “My horror of the incident increased with the death toll. It was difficult to understand the full significance of this and what missteps could result in such an extreme and deadly fire. Hopefully this story will change our lives a little bit so that we never have a disaster in the Station nightclub again. “

Dee Snider, frontman of Twisted Sister, once performed at Station nightclub and many others in towns and villages across the country, as did many rock and metal bands of the 1980s. Snider, who helped bring other record artists together for a fundraising concert for survivors and families of the victims, can be heard performing a new song, “Stand.”

“No one should have to die because they want to see a band and listen to the music they love. No one should be scarred for life, paralyzed or have their children orphaned because of their love for rock n roll.” Snider adds. “This documentary not only serves as a reminder of this incredible tragedy, but it highlights an incredible group of people who have overcome unfathomable loss, and have survived, if not thrived, the next day.”

America’s Deadliest Rock Concert: The Guest List explores the Station Nightclub fire through gripping tales from survivors and family and friends of the victims who have commemorated their loss through activities ranging from a memorial body art exhibit to a re-immersion in the rock culture that initially brought them and their loved ones to the nightclub Station. Their stories embody courage and are inspirational while others describe much darker aftermath. Great White’s Jack Russell emerged from the experience of a changed man carrying the burden of the accusation with him for what happened that night and in a series of very revealing interviews he shares his research of peace after a fire after a journey of nearly two decades of paralysis grief and depression as a result of surviving the tragedy. In the afternoon before the concert, Russell met many Great White fans in the West Warwick area and graciously added their names to the guest list for the show that evening. For many of these fans, what seemed like their lucky day turned out to be their last.

Weeks after the fire, a charred handwritten notebook page was recovered from the ashes of the Station nightclub that contained rows of names and above them were the words “Guest List.”

Strong investor: Joyce Sims has a portfolio of stocks and stocks

The most expensive gift American singer Joyce Sims ever received was a “priceless” diamond ring.

Sims, who rose to fame in the late 1980s with the hit single Come Into My Life – one of the UK’s top ten singles – says she would work to end homelessness, hunger and poverty if she was. Chancellor of the Exchequer.

His new album, Change, will be released earlier this year. She’s talking to Donna Ferguson.

What did your parents teach you about money?

To respect and deserve it. I grew up in Rochester, New York. I was the oldest of five. My mother was a chef in a family restaurant and my father was a machinist for Kodak.

Money was tight. As a child, I remember hearing my parents often discussing what bills to pay and in what order. Everything was on budget and they worked hard for the money they made. But we had everything we needed and some of the things we wanted. We were a united family.

Have you ever struggled to make ends meet?

Yes. The worst time was in the mid 80’s when I first left home and went to New York to continue my recording career and try to get a recording deal. I was 23 years old.

I moved in with a friend in Manhattan and to pay the rent I got a job in an office filling out some paperwork. In the evenings, I worked in a recording studio, singing along to songs in exchange for free time in the studio to record my own music.

My rent was so expensive that all I could afford for lunch each day was a slice of pizza and a soda. At one point, I had to ask my parents for money to help me reach the next paycheck.

The worst part is that I took my car to New York. Parking is crazy in this city. You have to move your car from one side of the street to the other, depending on the day and time. I’ve racked up so many parking tickets – over $ 700 in fines. Since the car was in my parents’ name, all fines went to my parents. They called one day and asked me what I was doing. They said to me, ‘Take our car home.’

Have you ever been paid ridiculous money?

In the late 1980s, nightclubs would sometimes pay me thousands of dollars to sing All In All, my biggest hit in America. It would take me six minutes and 31 seconds and I could earn up to $ 3,000 (equivalent to £ 4,700 today).

What has been the best financial year of your life?

It was in 1987 when the Come Into My Life album came out. It has been a great year financially and in all other areas of my life. I was delighted to release my first album. Holding this album in my hand meant so much. Many of my dreams and aspirations came true when the album came out. I would say I made over $ 100,000 that year on tour and almost $ 100,000 in album sales.

What’s your biggest money mistake?

I didn’t buy a property as soon as I could afford it in 1987. Instead, I rented in different locations for three years before finally climbing the property ladder in my thirties. At the start of my career, I was so busy touring and recording in the studio that I didn’t save much. I have helped my family and friends, and I also wasted a lot of money just by living.

The best financial decision you’ve ever made?

Spending $ 20,000 to turn one of my rooms into a home studio in the early 90s. This decision has saved me several thousand dollars over the years.

The most expensive gift you have ever received?

It was a pear shaped diamond ring with several karat yellow gold. My husband gave it to me for Christmas. He is magnificent and holds a special place in my heart. I don’t know how much it costs, but to me it’s invaluable and I love it. I was speechless when I received it, which does not happen often.

Are you saving in a pension or buying stocks?

Yes. I started saving for a pension when I was in my mid-thirties because my accountant advised me. I wasn’t really thinking about my retirement back then, but I’m glad I listened to it.

I have several thousand dollars invested in the stock market and have been investing for about 20 years. I have a diversified portfolio, but I lean more toward stocks than bonds.

I take a medium to long term risk approach and let someone else manage my portfolio. To date, I am satisfied with the performance of my investments.

Do you own a property?

Yes, my husband and I own our house. This is a three bedroom townhouse in New Jersey. We bought it ten years ago. I’d rather not say how much I paid for it, but I really think its value has gone up since we got it.

The little luxury you treat yourself to?

Go to a hotel on the edge of New Jersey and spend a few days at the beach. I love to sit back, relax and listen to the waves.

I find it inspiring – it’s good for my soul. I actually recorded the sound of the ocean to use in my songs. A trip like this usually costs me around $ 500.

If you were chancellor, what would you do?

I would end hunger and homelessness. I would increase funding for organizations that support the UK’s poorest families. I would try to end poverty and ensure that everyone has a living. In my opinion, no one in the UK – or the US – should go hungry or be homeless. If everyone could have a home and not worry about food, I think they would live more productive lives and the world would be a better place.

Do you donate money to charity?

Yes, I donate to charities that feed children and care for the poor. I also donate to my church.

What’s your number one financial priority?

Leave a legacy for my two children with the hope that they will do the same for their children. I want to die knowing that my children are being taken care of financially.

STS9 are the latecomersThe group didn’t postpone their New Years Eve plans. The livetronica outfit was scheduled to perform a series of shows in her hometown at Atlanta’s The Eastern from December 29 to January 1. The performances would have been the ensemble’s first indoor shows since the advent of COVID almost two years ago. The musicians said in a statement:

“PLEASE READ: We have been keeping a close watch on the recent wave of the COVID-19 Omicron variant which has spread at a rapid rate across the country. With the health and safety of our fans, family, friends, team, hall staff and the ATL community in mind, we have decided to postpone the New Years race for 4 nights. These shows in Atlanta would have been the first we have played indoors in two years … and with the four nights almost sold out, we were wrong to gather inside and pack The Eastern several times. days in a row. We also took into account that everyone will be going out on vacation and going to Georgia from across the country. This is a recipe for spreading the virus even further. It was important for everyone involved in organizing this event to get the word out as soon as possible, not only so that those who came had as much time as possible to adjust their travel arrangements, but also so that we didn’t we didn’t all run the risk of going down. on ATL just to have the shows canceled halfway through. For more than 20 years, we’ve strived to create safe environments for people to come together to enjoy art and music – an indoor event right now has the realistic potential to be dangerous for those we do. love on. Please know that this decision was not an easy one – it is a heartbreaking decision. We have been looking forward to this event since its conception over a year ago. We worked on the overdrive in the studio to create something really special for everyone. We couldn’t wait to see you all again. We are working to reschedule these shows as soon as possible. Please keep your tickets as we work with The Eastern to find new dates. With our team and our team, we appreciate the understanding of everyone here. We hope you have a great holiday season please stay safe there. And please join us in doing your part to help stop a further increase in the transmission of the virus. Listen to the experts. Take care of your community. Let’s work together to see each other again in 2022.

At press time, STS9’s next scheduled show is a February 4th engagement in Tucson, Gem & Jam AZ.

By ABBIE BERNSTEIN / Editor-in-chief

Posted: Dec 17, 2021 / 02:55 AM

SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME teaser poster | © 2021 Sony / Marvel

Evaluation: PG-13
Stars: Tom Holland, Benedict Cumberbatch, Zendaya, Marisa Tomei, Jacob Batalon, Jon Favreau, JK Simmons
Writers: Chris McKenna & Erik Sommers, based on characters created by Stan Lee & Jack Kirby
Director: Jon watts
Distributer: Sony / Colombia
Release date: December 17, 2021

SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME is the ninth SPIDER MAN 21st century movie (not all MCU movies in which the character appeared but did not have his name in the title). This is the third SPIDER MAN film starring Tom Holland as the young New Yorker web-sling, as well as the third directed by Jon Watts. These could be collectively called the RESIDENCE trilogy, as the previous two are called SPIDER-MAN: RETURN HOME (2017) and SPIDER-MAN: AWAY FROM HOME (2019).

Spider-Man, aka Peter Parker, was one of the people who disappeared from existence by the alien Thanos in AVENGERS: WAR TO INFINITY. Fortunately, thanks to the Avengers, Peter and the rest of half of the universe that was deleted were found to exist in AVENGERS: END OF THE GAME, although they returned five years after leaving. A slightly disoriented game but still, Peter then fought alongside the Avengers to defeat Thanos.

Peter, still trying to figure out that he had missed five years, took a trip to high school to FAR FROM HOME. He was to save the world from Mysterio, who revealed Peter’s secret identity.

Like SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME begins, Peter, his family and friends are all feeling the pinch of this revelation. Many angry citizens have sided with Mysterio, and even those who like Peter take hero worship too far.

Peter has neither the ego nor the resources of his late mentor, billionaire Tony Stark. Peter doesn’t want accolades, and he doesn’t have the money to escape the sometimes literal bricks thrown at him.

When unfair consequences hit Peter’s girlfriend MJ (Zendaya) and his best friend Ned (Jacob Batalon), he decides to do something. Wouldn’t it be great if people could forget that they had already heard Peter Parker and Spider-Man were the same person?

In his adventures with the Avengers, Peter met the wizard Doctor Stephen Strange (Benedict Cumberbatch). Peter asks Dr. Strange for help. Ever since they went through wars together, Dr. Strange has been inclined to do Peter a favor. Except that Peter has a few caveats, and the spell ends up going awry.

Beyond that, it is difficult to speak of the following with any specificity. Very broadly speaking, Peter faces a moral dilemma that fits very well with the overall Spider-Man ethic. Describing it would give too much detail about the game, but writers Chris McKenna and Erik Sommers have found a very respectable way to keep both the audience and the characters emotionally engaged.

Arguably there is a huge amount of action, some very well designed and well staged, and others plagued by gloomy CGI issues in night scenes and over-fast editing. The motion capture performance is wonderful, and these characters blend in perfectly with fully live-action actors.

Holland has charm and integrity, and Cumberbatch convincingly makes Strange irritable and uncomfortable in their bonding moments. Zendaya and Batalon offer strong support, and Marisa Tomei has a warm conviction as Peter’s Aunt May. There are other standout actors here, but they probably shouldn’t be mentioned to anyone who hasn’t seen the movie yet.

SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME also has a lot more humor than we might have expected. According to his level of interest to discuss SPIDER MAN over the past twenty years some of it has been called funny laughing till tears roll. There are scenes that can actually be scripted, but where the actors seem to fall out, improvising entirely within the character.

It’s delicious, and it’s also well deserved. It’s the sort of thing that wouldn’t work without the decades of history and hours of film that came before, and so most movies aren’t able to try it out. the SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME filmmakers seize opportunities. They manage to dramatize much of what we think without breaking the fourth wall.

SPIDER-MAN: NO WAY HOME honestly discusses the topic at the heart of many stories across genres: what it means to be a good person. At the same time, its idiosyncratic aspects arouse real joy.

Omicron’s Worst Case Could See Hospitals Overwhelmed, New COVID Modeling Says https://puroveinte.com/omicrons-worst-case-could-see-hospitals-overwhelmed-new-covid-modeling-says/ Wed, 15 Dec 2021 12:05:31 +0000 https://puroveinte.com/omicrons-worst-case-could-see-hospitals-overwhelmed-new-covid-modeling-says/ Omicron seems to spread more easily than the Delta variant; there is a higher risk of re-infection, as well as infection of those vaccinated.

Omicron seems to spread more easily than the Delta variant; there is a higher risk of re-infection, as well as infection of those vaccinated. Modeling shows an increase in cases on Vancouver Island, due to UVic outbreaks and a religious rally.

If British Columbians do not take action to protect themselves from the more highly transmissible Omicron variant, COVID-19 cases in the province could exceed 2,000 per day by the end of December, and hospitals could be overwhelmed two weeks later, according to new pandemic modeling.

Omicron appears to spread more easily than the currently dominant Delta variant and increases the risk of re-infection in people previously tested positive for COVID-19, as well as infection in fully vaccinated people, the provincial health worker said Tuesday, Dr. Bonnie Henry.

“We don’t yet know if Omicron will be able to escape the new defenses that are given by vaccination,” Henry said. “What we do know is that as cases increase, so does the percentage of people who end up needing hospital care.

“This is more than ever the moment when we have to hold the line. We have to keep doing these things that we know to work. “

In the worst case, Omicron would overtake the Delta variant as the dominant strain in B.C., with up to three times the transmission and ability to evade immunity, and hospitalizations matching a previous daily record. from 75 Jan. 10.

In another possible scenario, Omicron could be just as serious or less serious than Delta. The scenarios do not take into account booster injections, which will reduce the transmission and severity of the disease.

There is “very limited” community transmission of Omicron in British Columbia, so “it is too early to say” if and when it will overtake the Delta variant, Henry said, adding that he hoped the booster injections would slow down Omicron’s pace.

As of Monday, 44 cases of the Omicron variant had been reported in British Columbia, including five on Vancouver Island. Four of the cases are linked to off-campus gatherings at the University of Victoria that resulted in an outbreak that has infected at least 124 people.

Henry said the Omicron cases here are associated with a UVic Vikes rugby team that played in the Canadian University Men’s Rugby Championship Nov. 24-28 at Queen’s University in Kingston, Ont.

The UVic outbreak was caused by the Delta variant, but the tournament spread Omicron to college communities across the country, Henry said. More cases are being tested and should be confirmed, she said.

Modeling released Tuesday shows an increase in COVID-19 cases on Vancouver Island, triggered by outbreaks at the University of Victoria as well as a religious rally in the northern part of the island. The virus’s reproduction rate – how many people an HIV-positive person transmits the virus to – is now higher than one on the island, which requires special attention, Henry said.

Fraser Health, which leads the number of daily cases, has a reproduction rate of less than one.

Of 519 new cases of COVID-19 reported in British Columbia on Tuesday, 123 were at Island Health. There are now 804 active cases on the island and public health is seeing a greater spread of the Delta-plus variant, also known as AY 4, in the island’s health region, Henry said.

Data from November and December across British Columbia shows that unvaccinated people are seven times more likely than those with two doses of a vaccine to contract COVID-19. The unvaccinated are 30 times more likely to be hospitalized and 50 times more likely to need intensive care.

Eighty-eight percent of people 12 years and older in British Columbia are fully immunized and just over 610,000 boosters have been given.

Of the approximately 350,000 children in the 5-11 age group eligible for a low-dose COVID pediatric vaccine, 146,426 are registered and 73,457 have been vaccinated “but we need to increase those numbers,” Henry said. She cited 500 children in this age group infected with COVID-19 every week in the province.

Parents can register their children through getvaccinated.gov.bc.ca or by calling 1-833-838-2323.

The 44 people infected with the Omicron variant in British Columbia as of December 13 were between five and 72 years old, with a median age of 33. None are hospitalized, likely because those infected are mostly young and vaccinated, Henry said.

Henry advises people to keep gatherings small now and during the holiday season.

“Think back to those holidays, where you want to be with groups of people you might not know. It’s a risky thing right now. We need people to take a step back.

Even among highly vaccinated populations, large gatherings are risky, Henry said, citing the 124 people who have tested positive for COVID-19 at UVic.

Henry urged those who gather in limited numbers with close family and friends inside to make sure the area is well ventilated – creaking the windows will help, she said.

Anyone five years of age and over is required to wear a mask in indoor public places, vaccination is mandatory in many workplaces, proof of vaccination is required for all non-essential indoor venues and events, and venues worship centers have limited capacity if all worshipers aren’t vaccinated.

At UVic, where exams have been moved online due to the outbreak, students will soon have access to quick COVID tests to take every other day for 10 days.

While all of the original cases of Omicron in British Columbia were associated with travel, less than half are now travel-related.

The 20 Omicron travel-related cases involved multiple countries, including Nigeria, South Africa, Zimbabwe, Egypt, Iran, Mexico, Germany, Portugal and the United States.

Seven of 44 Omicron cases as of December 12 were unvaccinated, including two children under 11. The majority of cases, 24, are in the Fraser Health Authority.

Slowly, carefully, vaccinated on all fours, we return to some of the basic pleasures of ordinary life. A few nights ago my wife and I went to our local movie theater, a multiplex with giant screens and blaring sound systems. I love it all: the next attractions for the horror movies I will never see and for the spy movies I will not miss; the chattering crowd; Brobdingnagian snacks; adhesive floors. Our choice for the evening fell on “Licorice Pizza” by Paul Thomas Anderson, a film set in the San Fernando Valley in the seventies. It is about the strangeness of being young, the experience of becoming a human being and of forming oneself. The fractured narrative is wise and devious, but also winning sincerity. It’s been a long pandemic, and it was an exhilarating reminder of what joy is.

Anderson is fifty-one and has been making films since he was a teenager. He is a child of the Valley, and he never really left these suburban streets. His first feature films – “Hard Eight” and “Boogie Nights” – came out in his mid-twenties and since then he’s been the kind of artist whose new work is always an event. Philip Seymour Hoffman, Daniel Day-Lewis, Tom Cruise, Melora Walters, Julianne Moore and Joaquin Phoenix are some of the seasoned actors who have appeared in his best films, including “Punch-Drunk Love,” “Magnolia,” “There Will Be blood ”,“ The master ”and“ Phantom thread ”.

Anderson rarely speaks to reporters. I was reminded of this when I had a Zoom call with him the day after watching his movie. His place was not indicated by his name but rather by “Mason & Dixon”, a sign of his admiration for the solitary novelist Thomas Pynchon. (Anderson made a film of Pynchon’s novel “Inherent Vice.”) I spoke with Anderson for The New Yorker Radio Hour; our conversation has been edited for length and clarity. He was talking about his home in the Valley. And, since he placed “Boogie Nights”, “Magnolia” and, now, “Licorice Pizza” in this territory, I started the conversation, which has been edited and condensed, asking him why the place resonates so deeply for him. .


I love it. It’s that simple: it kind of starts and ends there. I remember being a kid and thinking at one point, probably during my teenage years, that I had to get out of here. “Get out of here” being on top of the hill, not in the San Fernando Valley. Maybe it’s LA, maybe New York, maybe London, maybe Shanghai – whatever it is, I have to get out of here.

But I’m one of those people who like to get away from it all for twenty-four hours and then I start to itch and think about home. I just wanna go home. I am one of those homebody. I am comfortable here. My family is here, my friends are here. It’s a place I keep coming back to. Whatever ambition you have to spread your wings, I always find myself coming back here. After London when we were doing “Phantom Thread” – it was a dream for me to be able to work there – but when I got home I was so thrilled. The Valley is not the most beautiful place in the world, it is not the most cultivated place in the world, I understand that, but it is my home.

When I was a kid, I listened to the radio and watched television late at night, and everyone in California was making jokes about the Valley. I didn’t know what it was. What was the joke? What is the Valley in the spiritual sense and in terms of the landscape of your youth?

Funny, I wonder if Johnny Carson could have contributed to it because he always said, “Beautiful downtown Burbank!” It may not be beautiful. And there is no real downtown. . . .

I mean, what is the San Fernando Valley? It is a flat space between the San Gabriel Mountains and the Santa Monica Mountains. Its main reason for existing, at one point, was farmland. And, famous, there is the story of “Chinatown” of how water was diverted from the valley.

It is a suburb. And the suburbs always seemed to be beaten. I do not really know why. When I was first writing “Boogie Nights” as a teenager, there was a great story in my own backyard. I didn’t have to go far. I didn’t have to make things up. I could research, learn more about these people in this industry, but it was familiar to me. At one point I probably read that I should “Write down what you know”. This is a good place to start. This work is quite hard. So why do I have a hard time trying to learn something that is beyond my reach or that does not speak to me?

“Licorice Pizza” revolves around two characters. One is Gary Valentine, played by Cooper Hoffman, an incredibly charismatic teenager for his age. He’s a little actor. He started a waterbeds business and then a pinball palace. His patter, his bravado, is incredible for someone of fifteen. He falls in love with a girl, Alana Kane, played by Alana Haim. She is much older than him. She is in her mid-twenties, with a troubled life but an inner intelligence that is also magnetic. How does this take root in your experience? If you write down what you know, what is the seed of the “Licorice Pizza” story for you?

I was the second of four [children], so I had an older sister and she had older friends. She’s two, three, four years older than me. And a friend of mine had an older sister. So we just happened to fall through the cracks so that when we were fourteen, fifteen, there were girls around us – our sisters’ friends – were eighteen, ten. nine years. And they had cars! So every waking hour was spent trying to get them to lead us somewhere! And behind him, he was trying to flirt with them or hang out with them or get noticed by them in a way that was more than just an irritating little brother.

I remember having a few friendships with some of these girls that I met along the way. They were just friendships, but they were fantastic. They were fantastic just because they were just friendships, you know? Having a friendship with a slightly older woman, who wasn’t your sister, I had one foot in some version of the adult world or what started to feel adult just because of the transport they had.

Perhaps the biggest assertion of potency and age difference in the movie isn’t the erotica but the driving. At one point, Alana is not driving a car but a truck, and at one point she drives him back at full speed down a hill, into the center of town. [Gary is her terrified and thrilled passenger.] It is a great drama. Better than Grace Kelly speeding down a mountain road in the south of France with Cary Grant.

This sequence you are referring to is a catch-all for a number of episodes that were either as dangerous or slightly less dangerous. And they happened especially in Southern California because it’s such a vibrant community. We are slaves to our cars. We love them. Especially at this age your whole life has been spent buying a car in one way or another. And the kind of problem you found yourself in as a result was generally large; you look back and think, i can’t believe i made it out alive. So this sequence taps into those episodes. Back then you just think it was just fun, but with a little distance you realize it was really life or death.

We see a title card on the screen. And he announces that this production is from Ghoulardi Film Company [Anderson’s production company]. This name has an incredibly deep meaning to you and your family, and it’s rooted in your home in the San Fernando Valley.

My dad, his name is Ernie Anderson, and he was from Boston. After the war he returned and was a radio DJ in Vermont, and ended up in Cleveland, Ohio. He was on the first floor of a TV show going on there. He created and hosted one of those classic late night horror shows. And his character’s name was Ghoulardi. [The show ran on WJW on Friday nights, from 1963 to 1966, and was an influence on everyone from Drew Carey to the Cramps.] He wore a fake Van Dyke beard and sunglasses with a lens out. His job was to showcase these horror movies and give the kids a good time. Ghoulardi was an incredibly popular figure locally in Cleveland. [My father] eventually came to Southern California, to the San Fernando Valley, and worked as a voice over announcer with ABC, he did a lot of different commercials. He became the booth announcer for “The Carol Burnett Show”. But Ghoulardi still sort of followed him for anyone in Cleveland at the time. The list is surprisingly long – there were some amazing people who were kids in Ohio at the time, from Chrissie Hynde to Jim Jarmusch.

Nov 18, 1996, around 5:05 p.m.

Twenty-five years ago, Al White was at the top of his game. China had a voracious appetite for cardboard and White saw a great opportunity to start a business while doing good to his community, a theme that was present throughout his life.

“I had a recycling business in town, the Chinese started buying cardboard and they were buying cardboard like there was no tomorrow. So we said, let’s get into recycling the cardboard because nobody was picking it up, it all went in the trash, ”White said.

With a business partner, White obtained a grant of $ 17,000 from the Department of Environmental Quality.

“We have a 1984 front-load garbage truck and a hundred dumpsters that we’ve put up all over town for people to separate their boxes,” he said.

He added, “In the height of that time, we were sending three seedlings of cardboard bales a week and doing banking, really. I felt really good about it. I pretended I was saving the world one piece of cardboard at a time, and I was dirty all the time. I climb dumpsters all the time, take stuff out and get shit all over the place, but the cool thing is we keep it out of the landfill. We were doing everything the recyclers were supposed to do. “

People also read …

But White’s life was changed forever at 5:05 p.m. that day in 1996.

Sitting behind the desk at his double large mobile home in East Flagstaff, White recalled the day of the accident that left him paraplegic feeling senseless below his upper chest.

“The mechanic and the driver went out and picked up a (expletive) load of cardboard that day, more than they should have, and wrapped and wrapped it until it got stuck, and when they got back to the lot, we couldn’t get it out of the truck, “White said.” The hydraulic system of a front-loading garbage truck includes the arms at the front, the element that lifts the truck. backrest and the ram that pushes all the material out, they were complaining about losing hydraulic fluid, so we were looking for a leak.

“I was squatting in front of the truck looking at the hydraulic motor and the knuckles knocked down the bar at the front of the truck, this 8 inch bar grabbed me on the shoulders, pushed my face into the grid , tore my nose out and broke my back between my shoulder blades Bad day at work, you know what I mean?

“I will never understand why they were lowering their arms in the front when they were supposed to work on the ram pushing the box back,” he added. “I was 44 years old. When I was little, you broke your back, you died. I didn’t think I had a chance. “

White said he had a takeaway as he recalled the moments after the crash.

“Here’s the lesson… tell people you know you love them all the time, because you don’t want to be in that position realizing you’re not going to see anyone else, you know you’re about to die and the last person you’re going to see is your (expletive) mechanic, “he said. “I was lying with my head in my mechanic’s lap, my face covered in blood, and every time I looked up at him he would cry.”

Despite his catastrophic injuries, White did not die that afternoon and is soon back in his community and seeking a way to live a new life he had not chosen.

“I spent six weeks in the hospital, which seemed to me an unusually short period. When they told me they were going to release me, I had nowhere to go, “he said.

Friends organized a benefit concert and raised $ 17,000, which enabled White to make it through the first year. Then they found him an apartment in the city center and he rented his trailer on the east side.

“The big deal was ‘What are you going to do… you have no idea,’” White said of the period after his accident. “The Disability Awareness Commission was having a seminar and asked me to talk about the physical and emotional barriers I saw in Flagstaff after being recently disabled. I told them about a story I saw in the journal about Barbie’s dream house. Barbie had a friend in a wheelchair and the story was that the friend’s wheelchair did not fit into Barbie’s dream house. It was my life then. “

This talk and White’s experiences sailing in his community paid off along the way. At one point, White asked a few questions about the construction of Heritage Square and its underground parking lot.

“I asked how high the roof was and was told it was 7 feet, not 8 feet and 6 inches, which was supposed to be. I went to talk to the town’s community development department and I got four van accessible disabled spots in the parking lot across from Charlie’s, “White said.” I realized that one person can really make a difference.

This experience then earned him a seat on the city council, a position he held for 12 years.






Al White smiled for a photo recently. He was involved in a catastrophic workplace accident 25 years ago, but has spent the past 25 years working and volunteering in the community he loves.

“Then a bunch of people would show up for city council… It was Joe Donaldson, Toni Thayer and me. I liked the idea that people from different backgrounds could come together, put aside their differences, focus on five different things and get things done, ”he said.“ I was the freelance freelancer. , Joe Donaldson was the Republican, Zach Smith was the Democrat, and Toni Thayer was essentially the Communist Socialist (she was one of the founders of Friends of Flagstaff’s Future).

“We became Four For Flagstaff and tried to replace the majority on the council. Chris Bavasi was the mayor. We didn’t even reach the primary until we split up. Donaldson won and I won. It was in 2000 and I was on the board for 12 years.

Thinking back to the two and a half decades since the life-changing crash, White shared his thoughts on how to cope with an unexpected change.

“You have to mourn what you’ve lost, but don’t focus on what you can’t do, focus on what you can do. If you focus on what you can do, then those doors start to open, ”he said.

For White, this meant a life of dedication to public service, being involved in his community, and volunteering.

“Satisfaction and happiness are based on expectations. It’s really about setting realistic expectations that you can meet, ”White said.

Looking to the future, White always has goals he wants to achieve, but he’s also realistic about how much time he’s left to achieve them.

“I am 70 years old now. The average age of paraplegics in the event of death is 65 years. I’ve beaten all the odds, but I don’t think I’m until 90, so my perspective is now focused on family and friends rather than big, lofty goals, ”he said.

White is currently working on signing a new 75-year lease between the city and Theatrikos and for the theater to expand its activities, in particular the TheatriKids program in the east of the city with classes for children. He also hopes that Quality Connections will continue to grow. White has been on the board of Theatrikos and Quality Connections for many years.

“It’s been a great life. For 25 years of being (expletive), I feel like I made the most of it, ”White said with a chuckle.

This former capital is turning to modern technology to improve animal welfare, increase accessibility and prevent damage to the World Heritage site.

Instead, a bereavement counselor sat at the front of the room, helping the class mourn the 20-year-old journalism graduate after his death.

Jurinek and his friend Franco Patino, 21, were among eight people killed on Friday during Travis Scott’s performance at the Astroworld Music Festival in Houston, Texas. Naperville’s best friends attended the concert together.

Almost 50,000 people invaded the stage during the show, an overwhelming security. The victims were between 14 and 27 years old.

On Monday, Lescelius and others remembered Jurinek.

“There are students who come through any program and then there are students who have a real impact; Jacob was one of them, ”said Lescelius, professor at the SIU School of Journalism. “He loved graphics and found his place. He was trying to figure out how to make his passion the work of his life.

A vigil was scheduled for Monday evening in Carbondale.

“We are heartbroken to lose a member of the Saluki family, Jacob Jurinek, and we extend our deepest condolences to his family and friends,” SIU Chancellor Austin A. Lane said in a statement. “Jacob was a creative and intelligent young man with a promising career in journalism and advertising.”

Jurinek designed posters and social media banners for SIU athletics, according to one of his Instagram posts in March.

Jurinek and Patino were high school football teammates.

Jurinek’s mother Alison died in 2011, according to a statement released Monday by the Jurinek family. His death brought Jurinek and his father, Ron Jurinek even closer.

“For the decade that followed, Jake and Ron were inseparable – attending White Sox and Blackhawks games, sharing their love of pro wrestling, and spending weekends with extended family and friends in the place. Jake’s favorite, the family cottage in southwest Michigan, “the statement said. .

Atlanta’s outdoor movie night last Friday had a lot in common with the drive-in parks of yesteryear.

However, instead of getting in the car, the families drove to the theater grounds. Then they spread blankets to sit on the floor or on chairs to watch the children run across the grassy stage in front of the screen.

The image that moviegoers saw measured approximately 15 feet by 20 feet, as projected onto the wall of the building. While waiting for the show to start, a family member could be selected to go to the concession stand to get bags of popcorn.

Moviegoers had to wait until complete darkness arrived for the picture to be seen in its best color. The sound has been improved, however. It was big and full, easy to understand, thanks to modern electronics. No advertising was even necessary.

The evening was presented by the Atlanta Area Chamber of Commerce. No particular reason or plan – the event was just a night to be at the movies with family, friends and neighbors to watch as well.

Perhaps it was a new experience for the youngster, most of whom today could watch a movie on their own, on a hand-held cell phone.

What a special time and what a way to come and see a movie outdoors – be a scary kid like Braden Moore. Her mom and dad, Kimber and Haden Moore, are also doing their part.

Here is the cinema of yesterday and today.  It's outside on the grounds of EB Woods Memorial Park in downtown Atlanta.  The Friday Outdoor Movie Night was a fall celebration for the public by the Atlanta-area Chamber of Commerce.

The death and injuries of two crew members on the set of Rust showed Hollywood needs to do more to protect its workers, said the grieving father of a cameraman who died in similar circumstances in 2014.

Sarah Jones, who was a cameraman on the sets of Midnight rider, died of multiple fractures and injuries on the first day of her shooting after a freight train struck her in Wayne County, Ga. on February 20, 2014.

Calling the recent death of Halyna Hutchins a reminder of the tragic disappearance of her 27-year-old daughter, Richard Jones said: “My heart goes out to Halyna’s family, friends and colleagues.”

“I can imagine, after experiencing what I have, what they are feeling right now. But I can’t imagine it because it’s different for them. But it’s difficult – very difficult, “he said. Fox News.

Mr. Jones and his family have worked to raise awareness and improve safety conditions on film and television sets with Safety for Sarah. But the recent accident is a painful reminder, he said.

“It hurts. We worked on this so that it wouldn’t happen again. And yet it does,” Mr Jones said. “I had hoped Sarah’s death would make a difference. J “Had hoped Sarah’s death would even save lives. I wished Sarah’s death would have saved Halyna.”

Hutchins died on October 21 after Hollywood star Alec Baldwin fired a gun that served as a prop on film sets Rust. Director Joël Souza was injured. The accident prompted several calls for better regulation of firearms used on film and television sets, and even led to calls to ban them altogether.

Hutchins was killed by a single bullet that went through it and then lodged in Mr Souza’s shoulder, police officials said. The bullet was fired with a .45 Lee handgun, and the pellet recovered from Mr. Souza’s shoulder is under investigation.

Baldwin wrote in a statement after the incident: “There are no words to express my shock and sadness over the tragic accident which claimed the life of Halyna Hutchins, a wife, mother and colleague deeply. admired. I fully cooperate with the police investigation to explain how this tragedy happened and I am in contact with her husband, offering my support to him and his family. My heart is broken for her husband, their son and everyone who knew and loved Halyna.
