In the early 1840s, settlers in wagons passed Scotts Bluff on their travels west to Oregon, reenacted here, using the landmark for navigation. After permanent communities were established nearby in the in the late 1880s, residents and visitors alike began going to Scotts Bluff National Monument as a destination for scenic views of the hills, mountains, river valley, and plains.

We’re celebrating the 100th Anniversary of the National Parks Service all month with historic photos, videos, and posters that are now held at the National Archives. The Act to Establish a National Park Service is currently on display in the National Archives Museum in Washington, DC.

For an ongoing series entitled Mad Max Movies Cars, Toronto-based art director Scott Park illustrates famous automobiles and motorcycles from TV shows and movies as post-apocalyptic vehicles like those seen in Mad Max: Fury Road. Now Ecto-1, the Batmobile, the Mystery Machine, and even the RV from Breaking Bad are worthy to ride to Valhalla along the Fury Road, including our personal favorite, the Bluth family stair car from Arrested Development:

Another morning in Wakanda
  • T'Challa:So. Who broke it? I'm not mad. I just want to know.
  • Steve:I did. I broke it...
  • T'Challa:No. No, you didn't. Falcon?
  • Sam:Don't look at me. Look at Barnes.
  • Bucky:What?! I didn't break it.
  • Sam:Huh. That's weird. How did you even know it was broken?
  • Bucky:Because it's sitting right in front of us and it's broken!
  • Sam:Suspicious.
  • Bucky:No, it's not!
  • Clint:If it matters, probably not... Lang was the last one to use it.
  • Scott:Liar! I don't even drink that crap!
  • Clint:Oh really? Then what were you doing by the coffee cart earlier?
  • Scott:I use the wooden stirrers to push back my cuticles. Everyone knows that, Hawkeye!
  • Steve:Alright let's not fight. I broke it, let me pay for it, your highness.
  • T'Challa:No. Who broke it?
  • Scott:[whispering] Your highness, Wanda's been awfully quiet…
  • Wanda:Really?!
  • Scott:Yeah, really!
  • [...]
  • T'Challa:I broke it. I burned my hand so I punched it. I predict ten minutes from now, they'll be at each other's throats with warpaint on their faces and a pig head on a stick. Good. It was getting a little chummy around here.

1983. Crystal Logic

is the third album by band Manilla Road,  the band fully embraced heavy metal  wholeheartedly , leaving behind the space, progressive and hard rock influences which could be found on the two previous albums.

The Riddle Master and The Veils Of Negative Existence are among the highlights of the album. And the epic masterpiece Dreams Of Eschaton/Epilogue ends the album perfectly. The epic feel is enchanted by the fact that the songs seems to made around a concept.

Crystal Logic is a  classic and beautifully composed and performed album; one of Manilla Road’s best.

Mark Shelton’s warbling, somewhat nasal vocal style might not sound brittle enough to get over with some extreme metal fans; but his slashing guitar playing is simply beyond reproach, boasting an inventiveness and electrifying attack worthy of the era’s best major market heavy metal guitar heroes. 

Crystal Logic was ranked number 344 in Rock Hard magazine’s book of The 500 Greatest Rock & Metal Albums of All Time
