Some movies are like that. Winning at the box office, in the court of popular opinion, and at a the awards banquet. Yet one sits down with a bowl of popcorn and their favorite beverage and the whole thing is a bust.

An older one recently reworked. When Punk first began back in 76/77 the NYC and London scene got a lot of interest and labels signed people , a little later they picked up on the west coast (though there was an early scene in San Fran and LA) Toronto had a lot of back and forth with NYC (the Ramones played one of their first gigs outsideNYC in Toronto and spent a lot of time here as did the Dead Boys., the Clash's first opening act over here was actually a Toronto band.. This is a 2005 variant of one of the more influential Toronto bands The Viletones. , the only original member being Steve Leckie (Nazi Dog the Singer) The guitarist in the shot Kurt player with a different punk band back then, the Drummer Cleave played with almost all of them either in the studio or gigging, and the Bass Player john Borra came from the second wave around 79/80 . they did manage to get out DIY releases back then that have spread far and wide (a while back a friend sold a mint first single into Japan for silly money) and various bands have covered them live (Nirvana and Frank Black have both done versions of Screaming Fist that I have heard on bootlegs - or in the case of Frank he played it last time he was here)

There are all sorts of tricks that manufacturers can use to meet WalMart's demands. They can reduce the amount of product in the package. They can make cheaper packaging. In many cases as you unfortunately found out, they can cut corners in the formula and manufacturing. That they don't mind pulling the wool over consumers' eyes is, I think, unethical.

I suspect the Walmart CS Rep is min-informed. They should have offered to cancel the cards (if they hadn't already been activated) and replaced them. Walmart isn't 'out' anything however you get a refund.

A good merchant would have used overnight mail to replace them as a goodwill gesture.

Mythical creatures and local legends?
Posted By reeftool

In the nearby Lake Champlain area we have 2 well know "monster" legends.

First is Champ, the monster who is seen occasionally in the waters of the lake. Besides the occasional news story, there have been actual scientific searches in the lake for years. While not actually finding a living monster, they did find the skeleton of a beluga whale along the lake shore. Sonar monitoring has picked up whale calls in the lake. It's now believed by many that the whales come into the lake from the St. Lawrence (where they are regularly spotted) in years when the water is high and end up getting trapped. The legend of Champ being a prehistoric monster of some type is still exploited by the tourist industry.

Second is also in the Lake Champlain area. In the town of Whitehall, on the southern end of the lake, two police officers and several residents had a Bigfoot encounter years back. The local police actually spotted it and chased it but lost sight of it in the woods. It never was spotted again. This was also well covered in the news.

There is currently a big argument throughout the Adirondacks about the existence of wolves and mountain lions in the region. DEC denies that they inhabit the area. The lion sightings are blamed on mistaken identity but are now becoming common. Lynx and Bobcats do not have long tails. A gray wolf was hit and killed by a car last year in the southern Adirondacks. It was hard to deny that one but DEC says it was likely a stray that wandered south from Canada.

I would personally advice to use the photo critique forum as a free class. Of course, all critique is subjective, but a good critic can help you see your photos through a different set of eyes. I find that most of the criticism here is quite gentle; the hardest part can be reading between the lines as so many people don't want to offend!

I've been taking the family there for decades. We go for the beach since we live in the Adirondack Mountains, which is a change of scene for us. We camp and usually stay further down in Rodanthe, on the other side of Oregon Inlet. Things to do? Well, the Wright Brothers Museum is a must and the kids always enjoyed spending time in Jockey Ridge State Park on the dunes. Kite flying is popular there and you can even learn to hang glide. We always spend a day down in Ocracoke. It's a free ferry ride. There is the historic site in Manteo, the first English settlement. If you want to spend some money, they have the play and reenactment most evenings.
Bring your camera! Lots and lots of birds in the Pea Island refuge. You'll need a kayak or canoe which you can rent everywhere if you don't bring your own. I got some very good shots of Herons, Egrets, and Ospreys on my last visit. Don't forget the lighthouses either. My kids never got bored there. Do bring sunscreen. There isn't much shade.

Just a side note.. I also live in Corinth. I just noticed!

If I notice, for of such and similar "competition", the photos should not you have any information about the author (watermark and similar personal data) !!
Such photos lead other authors in the unequal legal status! I know that a large number of colleagues, will not agree with my opinion !! In international competitions such photos are automatically eliminated!

Ben was an asset to the brand. It's too bad Pentax didn't realize that. His work was what influenced me to go for Pentax when I started.

Childhood as it used to be....

The current Atlantic Magazine has a great article on a sort of playground in Wales, of all places. When I read it I was reminded of the sort of childhood experiences that I and my brother Dean and sister Mary enjoyed as kids, back in the early '50s. My wife Flora also noted similarities to her childhood. This was long before “play dates” and such nonsense, we kids walked and rode bicycles everywhere. Our parents allowed us increasing freedom as we showed increasing sense and responsibility.

I recall learning to ride a bicycle when I was perhaps 6 or 7, and the bicycle either didn’t have training wheels, or they were totally useless and were soon removed. I’d scrape an elbow or knee, and go home bloodied, and my mother would patch me up and send me back out. Dean and I would walk to the movies, about a mile away, for the Saturday matinee, which cost all of nine cents!! We could walk down the hill, several blocks away, to mess around in a creek and catch crayfish, or perhaps a snake, which we brought home. Nothing fazed our mother, not crayfish, not snakes, certainly not neighborhood kids in and out of the house all day long. We camped out in a little tent in the front yard, and made pea shooters out of bamboo stalks and pestered the little kids with purple privet berries.

My father built us what I recall as a huge swing set out of 2 x 6 timbers. He secured the A frames to the ground so we didn't have to worry about turning the thing over. The swing seats were 1 inch stock, and were suspended on Manila rope which he periodically inspected. The swings were the best in the neighborhood, so our yard swarmed with kids.

We had pick up baseball games in the grassy parking lot of the Presbyterian church up the block. Since we rarely had eighteen kids to make up two teams the rules were flexible, to put it mildly. The minister's daughter was probably the best ball player in the neighborhood. I wasn't terribly good, but everyone got to bat. Great fun!

When we moved to a suburban area when I entered the 4th or 5th grade Dean and I tried out for Little League. After warming the bench for a week or two we decided that we had better things to do, like tramping in the woods with our sister Mary. Dean and I would ride our bicycles the 8 or 10 miles to a nearby state park for swimming and just messing around.

Life was good in most ways. I think kids today are missing a lot by not being allowed to “run free.” Kids need at least the feeling of freedom and self determination, not having parents always hovering and organizing every last minute of every day.

Thus endeth the rant.

Oh yes, here’s the link:

I grew up in a different world.
In the summer, went outside and didn't come back home until dinner. We rode our bikes until our legs gave out and sometimes miles away. Campouts on the beach, bonfires. My parents never knew where we were but it seems somebody did because we never got away with anything.

There was nothing worth watching on the TV during the day. Going to the movie theater cost a quarter and the same for the roller rink. Any vacant lot or piece of property without trees was a potential baseball field and we always played with hard balls. Fishing was a daily pastime if there was nothing else to do and often if I was bored because nobody was around, I would grab my pole and head to a favorite spot and often would find friends there. If not, that was ok because I would have more fish to myself.

I'm often asked by people why I live in the Adirondacks of NY after growing up in Florida. The biggest reason is that every square inch of real estate where I grew up is paved over and built on. All that "swampland" that people joked about decades ago was actually a cool place to grow up. Other than the climate, the town where I now live (pop. 2000,appox.) is very similar. No ocean but we have mountains, rivers, and lakes everywhere. Kids play outside and everyone looks out for one another. I wanted my kids to grow up in the same kind of place I did. Yep, we're old fashioned rednecks and proud of it!

Oh yes, I remember all those great times, and all those same things we did when I was a kid. I particularly liked playing with the ministers daughter...but will still keep my promise to her not to tell!

We might be gone a day or two, camping and swimming down by the creek, but all my Mom worried about was that I might come back home.:D It was a different time, a different world, with less "virtual reality" and tons more genuine reality just outside your door waiting. You are so right, kids today don't have a clue as to what they are missing.:(

Cell phones, X boxes, TV, and computers have closed off the world we once knew. We communicated with tin cans and a string....from my next door neighbors window to mine, and got high tech with our homemade crystal radios. All gone.....isn't it a shame?:(

Regards!:)
