As you probably have heard by now, Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris was partially badly destroyed in a fire. Some parts were saved, like the Towers. Others were not.
For the parts destroyed, what will they rebuild there?
Will they go old school and build a replica of what was there? It wouldn’t be authentic.
Will they build something new that probably wouldn’t go well with the old towers?
Will they build something still of the cathedral architecture scheme, just a tad more modern so as to avoid the authentic comparisons, but still maintain the gist of it?
Will they dare take the entire thing down and rebuild something new all together?
What will they rebuild at Notre Dame?
Happy holidays, everyone!
Just sit back and enjoy this video of some amazing swing dancing by this older couple. It’s not amazing because it involves acrobatics, or fireworks, or extraordinary physical ability. It’s rather likely if most people put enough practice into swing dancing, they could probably dance like this. But it sure looks fantastic and like a ton of fun!
In the movies, legends, lore and so on, heroes and villains often die “memorable” deaths. These could be dramatic, heroic, tragic, traumatic and/or other “memorable” adjectives that move audiences. However, those characters usually die “before their time”. They rarely die a boring death in old age, like of natural causes, at home, at a hospital, possibly due to some disease. Those types of deaths are tragic as well, of course, but lots of people die that way.
Pretty much all of us admire some such fictional character that die before their time. Many people admire them very much. But enough to want to die the same way? That’s what I want to know with the Meth of Death Survey below.
The next time someone tells you they think 1930s music is lame and tame, you let them listen to this little ditty by Patricia Norman, accompanied by Eddy Duchin and his band.
Warning: Explicit language.
That’s right, explicit language. If you don’t like it in your music, please don’t listen. You’ve been warned!
This was the first known song which had the F word in it, and it was absolutely scandalous when it first came out in 1938. In fact, it not only uses the F word, it uses it repeatedly. Read the lyrics and you’ll see why! Too bad there wasn’t a TV performance like the spectacular one by Betty Hutton, albeit to tamer lyrics, at the end of this post.
The new hockey franchise in Winnipeg probably won’t be called the Jets, despite all the nostalgic fans wanting it so.
Even if they do get called the Jets, they’ll have a new logo, despite all the nostalgic fans probably wanting the old uniforms to be worn.
However, I’m thinking some people will want some old Jets logo wallpapers cause when they left in 1996, wallpapers weren’t all that big a deal in the computer world, the Internet was just a baby… and not many people had widescreen and large monitors the size they are today.
So here you go, Jets fans. Enjoy! I got the graphics from various sources on the Internet and touched them up in various ways, from just adjusting contrast to combining graphics into new wallpapers.
Please click here for other wallpapers on this website, including those with the Vancouver Canucks logo.
I’ll finish the set later this week and remove this last sentence when done.
