TODAY marks the 50th anniversary of “2001: A Space Odyssey” premiere. To celebrate, Cannes will premiere an “unrestored” 70mm print, followed by select North American screenings and a 4K Blu-ray releases later this year. ⬛️ “For the first time since the original film’s release, this 70mm print was struck from new printing elements made from the original camera negative meaning it’s a true photochemical film recreation.” Stanley Kubrick would be proud.
A U.S. Marine M60 machine gun crew lays down suppressing fire towards an NVA position during the Battle of Hue, Vietnam, February, 1968. This year marks the 50th anniversary of the Battle of Hue and the Tet offensive (1968 - 2018).
So last year I was the Calgary Stampede Indian Princess. What that means is that I attended 350+ events in the city of Calgary, around Calgary, Germany (twice), Toronto, Pendleton, and Regina (2014 grey cup) all to promote my unique First Nations culture and the connection of the stampede and the Indian Village for one whole year. It was an unforgettable year and I met so many great people, travelled to beautiful places, and learned so much more about my culture.
This year, it happens to be the 50th anniversary of the Indian princess program! It’s also the last year that the Village is in the same location. Next year it’ll be on the opposite side of the park.
So with that, I’ll be back at it for the 10 days of the 2015 stampede and I couldn’t be more excited! This time around, most of the princess alumni members will attend events together, or divide into groups and attend multiple events, making it more exciting because it’ll be a first for the program to have more than one princess there. So starting with Canada day up until the 12th, I’ll be all around the city celebrating my culture and western heritage. I also may post more about it on here as the days go by.
If you see me in the parade (July 3rd) feel free to give me a wave as I ride by! :)
BBC Radio 2 will present two documentary series - Sgt. Pepper Forever and Paul Merton On The Beatles.
Over two programmes, broadcast on 24 May and 31 May, Martin Freeman presents Sgt. Pepper Forever, which will reveal the revolutionary studio techniques used during the remarkable sessions dating from November 1966 to April 1967 and also examine the album’s huge impact on the history of music. They will feature ‘work-in-progress’ versions of Sgt. Pepper tracks - and the songs on the double A-side single Strawberry Fields Forever/Penny Lane, which were also recorded during the sessions - to illustrate the pioneering techniques used by The Beatles and George Martin.
Martin Freeman says: “Sgt. Pepper is the most celebrated album by my favourite band. These documentaries will shed light on how The Beatles, with George Martin, created a piece of work that marked a watershed for what a long playing record could be. It’s my absolute pleasure to help tell you about it.“
You left the biggest mark on the whole industry of music, I’m sure that if u hadn’t contributed with the masterpieces you’ve created thanks to the gifts and talents you’ve always been humble about, music would be so much different than it is nowadays (Im talking about the good music). Happy Belated Birthday dear Kurt, and thank you so much for making my life suck a little less than it normally would have!
May 30, 1967/2017. Today is the 50th anniversary of the launch of the rotary-powered Mazda Cosmo Sport. It was the world’s first car powered by a twin-rotor engine. In total 1,176 examples of Mazda’s first sports car were built during 5 years of production
