I was never good at Jenga, or anything that requires a steady hand. Caterpillar used the 320E, TH514C, 277D, M316D and 349E to play a monstrous game of Jenga. One crane operator on the ground directed five other Cat drivers while they maneuvered and reordered 27 massive wooden blocks one at a time.
It’s been 25 years since Nickelodeon’s Hey Dude was on the air. But the memories still haunt the abandoned set at the Tanque Verde Ranch. Florida filmmaker Adam The Woo made a special trip to the outskirts of the Old Pueblo and captured some footage of the hardly memorable set to one of Nick’s earliest attempts at live action television.
Although intended as lighthearted, mildly Jackass-esque amateur reportage, Adam The Woo's videos frequently have a spooky, haunted quality that makes them feel like miniature "found footage" horror movies, minus the violence. That's certainly true of his Hey Dude travelogue, in which the still-cheerful-looking facades barely conceal devastated interiors. Even more sinister is Adam's visit to a nighmarish Flintstones-themed roadside attraction, which gives off a definite Chernobyl/post-apocalyptic vibe. (Those poor goats!) Even Adam The Woo's uptempo, punky theme song doesn't detract from the gloom at the heart of these videos.
That’s strange, we don't see a mention of a Hey Dude tour in the Tanque Verde Ranch program.
There was a simpler time when a device like the cassette player was a practical household item. Now, that ancient piece of technology has been long forgotten, and a good way to stump a know-it-all child. Benny and Rafi Fine recorded the reactions of various young people of Generation Z while they try to figure out how to operate the retro device.
Needless to say, the cassette player won.
“This is a rip off because you want to listen, but you can't because you don't have any headphones,” said a seven-year-old.
Honestly, I can't remember when was the last time I seen a tape player, but I do remember listening to Eminem’s Marshall Mathers on my Sony Walkmen in middle school.
Since the vinyl revival, tapes are making a slow comeback. According to the video, over 22,000 cassettes were sold in 2011. You can buy your very own tape player for around $20 on eBay, or dig around your parent's storage unit.
As the deadline for FEC fundraising reports closes in, Congressman Ron Barber's team tells the Weekly he has raised more than $422,000 in the first quarter of 2014.
While that's a big number for Barber, it still lags behind the nearly $450,000 that likely GOP opponent Martha McSally reported raising last week.
Barber is still outpacing McSally in total dollars raised for the 2014 cycle. Team Barber spokeswoman Ashley Nash-Hahn tells The Range that the campaign has raised more than $1.6 million since the beginning of the cycle and has more than $1.2 million cash on hand.
“The reason our campaign has more cash on hand than Martha McSally's is that Southern Arizonans support Ron Barber,” said Nash-Hahn. “Since McSally has been adopted by the Koch Brothers, she will have a well-funded campaign, and that's why she would do exactly what the Koch billionaires tell her to do if she went to Congress—vote to eliminate the minimum wage, increase health care costs for seniors and raise taxes on middle class families. She would even vote to privatize Social Security. Southern Arizonans know that we can't trust McSally to look out for us."
The CD2 race promises to be on the top-watched races in the country.
Bottom line: God made it.
Except for fossils and gay people, of course.
