    Ed King, a former lead guitarist for the Southern rock band Lynyrd Skynyrd who co-wrote one of the group's best-known hits, Sweet Home Alabama, has died at age 68. 인터넷카지노 King joined Lynyrd Skynyrd in 1972, not long after the band formed, and with two other lead guitarists, Gary Rossington and Allen Collins, helped create the group's powerful triple-guitar sound prominent on such rock classics as Free Bird.  Rossington, a founding member of the band, said he was "shocked and saddened" by King's death. A notice on King's Facebook page said he died at his home in Nashville, Tennessee, on Wednesday (Aug 22). No cause of death was revealed. 카지노사이트 King left the group in 1975, two years before a plane crash killed two of the band's members and a backup vocalist. King returned to Lynyrd Skynyrd when the band regrouped in 1987 and stayed until 1996. He was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as part of the band in 2006. During his original stint, King co-wrote several songs, including the 1974 hit Sweet Home Alabama, a retort to Neil Young's Southern Man. The California native previously played with psychedelic rock band Strawberry Alarm Clock.

    Thousands of revellers hurled around 145 tonnes of tomatoes at each other on Wednesday (August 29) during the annual "Tomatina" festival in the Spanish town of Bunol, 38 kilometers west of Valencia. A fire cracker signal marked the start of La Tomatina at 11am (0900 GMT) and during the next hour, six trucks loaded with tomatoes drove through Bunol's main street providing red ammunition for the revelers to enjoy themselves. 온라인바카라 The food fight originates from a spontaneous bust-up amongst villagers in 1945. It was banned for a time during the 1950s at the height of General Francisco Franco's dictatorship, but has gained popularity since it was reinstated, drawing a huge international crowd. At its peak, the Tomatina attracted approximately 45,000 people, but it has now become a ticketed event with only 22,000 places, 5,000 of which go to local residents.

    With the recent announcement of the NFL deal with Yahoo to stream a game online, it should be time to take a look at the things to watch for during the livestream. This is a massive opportunity for both the NFL and Yahoo, as both groups have large audiences and large reaches. 바카라사이트 International Viewing: With the game being broadcast via Yahoo for most markets, this is a test to see the global reach that the NFL has. For many years, an expansion team has been talked about in overseas locations for the NFL, but this is a chance to see what that interest may be like. For Yahoo, this is a chance to further grow their international platform as a whole. Yahoo will be able to broadcast this game in massive markets, such as the UK, China and other large countries that may not have regular viewing access to NFL games. Prediction: Welcome to the USA, where we are extremely curious about new things. Ratings may be high at the beginning, because we want to see things we are not used to. Ratings in the on home turf should expect to go down throughout the game. However, expect international ratings to be at a very high number, with football becoming a growing sports in expanding markets. 인터넷카지노 Yahoo Integration: Yahoo has many different properties that it can use to further enhance the experience for fans. For example, Yahoo Screen is the main video part of the website that will be used by many fans to see the actual game. Yahoo-owned Tumblr is a growing social product, with tens of millions of posts being created by people all around the world everyday. Can Yahoo use Tumblr in order to make the game more social? Yahoo also has created a very successful Fantasy Sports application used by millions. There is a massive amount of potential to use it's fantasy sports platform directly with the game. Other properties and platforms that are interesting in partnership with the game are Yahoo Search, Flickr and it's main news website. Prediction: This one should be fun. Yahoo is going to be creating a massive platform FOR ONE GAME OF THE BILLS VS. JAGS. Expect GIFs every two seconds on Tumblr, followed by fantasy exclusives provided by the top Yahoo NFL writers. Quality: Let's be honest. The first livestream NFL game via Yahoo could go up in flames. It could be amazing, but how do we know the quality is going to be perfect, something we are pretty used to with CBS, NBC and Fox Sports. Just a thought... 인터넷바카라 Prediction: It is not going to be perfect, but I do not think it is going to be awful. Yahoo Screen is a platform with high potential, and with CBS producing the game, this has the potential to be good. But not perfect...let's remember that. Game Experience: For your average TV user, the game may be DVR'd (or something similar) to either skip commercials or watch the entirety of the game of if the viewer is a couple minutes late. What does Yahoo provide us with this time around? Will we have the chance to record the game, and start it from the beginning a few minutes late? In addition, will Yahoo allow us to watch the game after it is done, allowing people to maybe see a game later in the day? Will we have a chance to rewind the game if somebody makes an amazing catch (or Rex Ryan does something weird, since that is very high in probability). Prediction: The game will be allowed to be rewinded (a certain amount of time), but not recorded. Yahoo will allow Yahoo-registered users to watch the game after it ends via Yahoo Screen. The game will be lowell watched after it ends, because people realize they have work, school...or the rest of their days.

     Hollywood actor Jeff Goldblum has faced dinosaurs and aliens in his movie franchises, but on Wednesday (Sept 5) he showed off a very different skill - playing jazz music. The Jurassic Park and Independence Day actor surprised commuters at London's St Pancras International train station by performing music from his forthcoming jazz album on a public piano. 온라인바카라 Crowds gathered around the 65-year-old, who recorded The Capitol Studios Sessions with his band The Mildred Snitzer Orchestra, and they applauded his solo performance. The album is set to be released in November.

     A stirring story of revenge and friendship involving an Irish convict woman and an Aboriginal tracker in colonial Tasmania was hailed the favourite on Thursday (Sept 6) to win the Golden Lion at the Venice film festival. 바카라사이트 The Nightingale by Australian Jennifer Kent - the only film directed by a woman out of a total 21 vying for the top prize - had critics reaching for comparisons with Jane Campion's 1993 masterpiece The Piano. But the first screening of Kent's haunting evocation of the brutality of the former penal colony, whose original inhabitants were all but wiped out in a genocide, was marred by racist and sexist abuse hurled at its makers. After loud cheers had greeted the demise of a British officer near the end of the film who had murdered the heroine's husband and baby, a handful of Italians in the audience clapped the death of the Aboriginal man who had helped her. Then, as Kent's name came up in the credits, one shouted: "Shame on you, whore! Your film sucks." A young Italian director later admitted he was the culprit and apologised for the "deplorable insult", saying it was "not meant to be misogynist". The dearth of women in the official line-up has seen Venice condemned for its "toxic masculinity" and the organisers forced into an embarrassing U-turn on gender equality. 카지노사이트 But the Brisbane-born actor-turned-director refused to be provoked, telling reporters her film proved the "absolute importance of reacting with compassion and love to ignorance. "We see other options played out and they gave no succour or relief," said Kent, who turned down the Hollywood blockbuster Wonder Woman to make her own historical epic. "Love, compassion and kindness are our lifeline and if we don't utilise them we will all go down the plughole," she added. The film, which is shot in English, Irish Gaelic and the Tasmanian Aboriginal Palawa Kani language, portrays the extreme violence and racism of the island in the 1820s when it was known as Van Diemen's Land. Variety called it "a magnificent mass of movie... an elemental revenge tale (of) near-mythic grandeur". But critic Jessica Kiang of The Playlist website said that with judicious cuts to "pare it back to its thrilling and beautiful essentials, The Nightingale will really sing." Kent said she it was "incredibly important" that audiences be shocked by the brutality she depicts. 카지노사이트주소 "I hope horror and beauty exist side-by-side. But we are so numbed and anaesthetised to cinema violence - we can watch a movie where 50 people die and feel nothing. "This is objectionable and disagreeable to me. I wanted to show the human cost," she told AFP. Rising Irish-Italian star Aisling Franciosi, of The Fall fame, said she never realised quite how violent the penal colony was, "particularly towards women, who were outnumbered eight to one. "They were sent there for very petty crimes to populate the island. It made me furious to see how cruel, brutal and systematic it was." Kent said the story of genocide and enslavement "needs to be told", hanging her plot on the touching and unlikely friendship between an enslaved convict played by Franciosi and a tracker by Aboriginal actor Baykali Ganambarr. "When I first went to Tasmania I was struck by the residual sadness in the land," she told AFP. "I visited the penal colonies and felt the ghosts of many heartbroken souls that somehow stayed in the place and I always wanted to tell the story." Ganambarr said there was no "sugar coating... This is what happened to my people and I am really proud to represent them." Kent, who wrote the script, said being the sole woman director in competition in Venice "brings me no joy. I wish I had my sister filmmakers here. Cinema's job is to reflect the world and if we only reflect 50 per cent, it's not doing that." The last time a woman took Venice's top prize was 43 years ago when German director Margarethe von Trotta won with Marianne And Juliane.

    Burt Reynolds, whose good looks and charm made him one of Hollywood’s most popular actors as he starred in films such as Deliverance, The Longest Yard and Smokey And The Bandit in the 1970s and 1980s, has died at age 82, a spokesman for his Los Angeles agent said on Thursday (Sept 6). 바카라사이트 Reynolds died on Thursday morning at the Jupiter Medical Centre in Florida, The Hollywood Reporter said, citing Reynolds’manager, Erik Kritzer. At the peak of his career, Reynolds was one of the most bankable actors in the film industry, reeling off a series of box office smashes until a career downturn in the mid-1980s. He rebounded in 1997 with a nomination for a best supporting actor Academy Award for Boogie Nights and won an Emmy Award for his role in the 1990-1994 TV series Evening Shade. With his trademark moustache, rugged looks and macho aura, he was a leading male sex symbol of the 1970s. He appeared naked - reclining on a bearskin rug with his arm strategically positioned for the sake of modesty - in a centrefold in the women's magazine Cosmopolitan in 1972. 온라인카지노 Reynolds' personal life sometimes overshadowed his movies, with marriages that ended in divorce to actresses Loni Anderson and Judy Carne and romances with others, including Sally Field and Dinah Shore. Reynolds also generated attention for financial woes and his struggles with prescription pain medication. Reynolds cited director John Boorman's Oscar-nominated 1972 Deliverance as his best film and said he regretted that the hoopla from his Cosmopolitan appearance detracted from the movie that made him a star. He played tough-guy Lewis Medlock - opposite Jon Voight, Ned Beatty and Ronny Cox - in the chilling tale of a canoe trip gone bad in rural Georgia. He starred in dozens of films, also including White Lightning (1973), WW And The Dixie Dancekings (1975),Hustle (1975), Nickelodeon (1976) and Semi-Tough (1977). He was the top money-making star at the box office in an annual poll of movie exhibitors 1978 through 1982. Many of his films were set in the South. He often played a lovable rascal who outwits local authorities as in director Hal Needham's 1977 crowd-pleasing action comedy Smokey And The Bandit, co-starring his girlfriend Field and Jackie Gleason, and its two sequels.

Another of his better roles was that of former a pro quarterback who lands in prison and assembles a team of convicts to play the warden's squad of brutal prison guards in 1974's rollicking The Longest Yard, directed by Robert Aldrich. He appeared in a supporting role 2005's remake with Adam Sandler. Reynolds also directed several movies in which he starred, including Gator (1976), The End (1978), Sharky's Machine(1981) and Stick (1985). While some of his performances were critically praised, others were ridiculed, particularly in the bloated action comedy Cannonball Run II, a sequel to his financial success Rhe Cannonball Run (1981). He also starred in the notorious 1975 musical flop At Long Last Love, a film so atrocious that director Peter Bogdanovich publicly apologised for making it. Reynolds turned down notable roles, including Han Solo in Star Wars, which went to Harrison Ford; the title role in a James Bond film; and the astronaut in Terms Of Endearment that Jack Nicholson turned into an Oscar-winning performance.

He rebounded in 1997 with a nomination for a best supporting actor Academy Award for Boogie Nights and won an Emmy Award for his role in the 1990-1994 TV series Evening Shade. With his trademark moustache, rugged looks and macho aura, he was a leading male sex symbol of the 1970s. He appeared naked - reclining on a bearskin rug with his arm strategically positioned for the sake of modesty - in a centrefold in the women's magazine Cosmopolitan in 1972. 온라인카지노 Reynolds' personal life sometimes overshadowed his movies, with marriages that ended in divorce to actresses Loni Anderson and Judy Carne and romances with others, including Sally Field and Dinah Shore. Reynolds also generated attention for financial woes and his struggles with prescription pain medication. Reynolds cited director John Boorman's Oscar-nominated 1972 Deliverance as his best film and said he regretted that the hoopla from his Cosmopolitan appearance detracted from the movie that made him a star. He played tough-guy Lewis Medlock - opposite Jon Voight, Ned Beatty and Ronny Cox - in the chilling tale of a canoe trip gone bad in rural Georgia. He starred in dozens of films, also including White Lightning (1973), WW And The Dixie Dancekings (1975),Hustle (1975), Nickelodeon (1976) and Semi-Tough (1977). He was the top money-making star at the box office in an annual poll of movie exhibitors 1978 through 1982. Many of his films were set in the South. He often played a lovable rascal who outwits local authorities as in director Hal Needham's 1977 crowd-pleasing action comedy Smokey And The Bandit, co-starring his girlfriend Field and Jackie Gleason, and its two sequels.

Another of his better roles was that of former a pro quarterback who lands in prison and assembles a team of convicts to play the warden's squad of brutal prison guards in 1974's rollicking The Longest Yard, directed by Robert Aldrich. He appeared in a supporting role 2005's remake with Adam Sandler. Reynolds also directed several movies in which he starred, including Gator (1976), The End (1978), Sharky's Machine(1981) and Stick (1985). While some of his performances were critically praised, others were ridiculed, particularly in the bloated action comedy Cannonball Run II, a sequel to his financial success Rhe Cannonball Run (1981). He also starred in the notorious 1975 musical flop At Long Last Love, a film so atrocious that director Peter Bogdanovich publicly apologised for making it. Reynolds turned down notable roles, including Han Solo in Star Wars, which went to Harrison Ford; the title role in a James Bond film; and the astronaut in Terms Of Endearment that Jack Nicholson turned into an Oscar-winning performance.

    A 1943 propaganda film featuring a Japanese "Robin Hood" in Malaya inspired the new Teater Ekamatra production opening this week. 안전놀이터 Written by Alfian Sa'at and directed by Teater Ekamatra's artistic director Mohd Fared Jainal, Tiger Of Malaya features a cast from Singapore and Japan, and runs at the Drama Centre Black Box from Sept 12 till Sept 23. The term "Tiger Of Malaya" is often associated with Japanese general Tomoyuki Yamashita, who captured Malaya and Singapore during World War II. However, the old film and this week's play are based on the life story of Tani Yutaka, a Japanese bandit who lived in Malaya. He is portrayed as a heroic figure, leading his band against British imperial forces and "evil" Chinese capitalists. The play re-enacts scenes from the film - with "interruptions, interventions and subversions" according to Alfian. Malay actors play parts that were originally played by a Japanese cast. The cast includes Farez Najid, Siti Khalijah Zainal and Rei Poh from Singapore, and Rei Kitagawa and Yuya Tanaka from Japan. Dialogue is in Malay, English, Japanese and Mandarin - Japanese-speaking researcher Shawn Chua is the dramaturg. Actor Farez, 30, watched the Tiger Of Malaya film even before being cast for the production. "It was with a bunch of boys who were interested in war and it was hilarious," he says. 바카라사이트 For him and many of the other performers in their 30s, World War II is too far away to affect the present day. "We consume Japanese media a lot, the culture," he points out. "The war is generations away." Japanese actor Tanaka, 31, feels equally distant from the war but says: "I'm curious how people will respond to the play." Alfian, who has written several plays for Teater Ekamatra including political satire GRC (2015), is fascinated by the "mythmaking" aspect of Tiger Of Malaya, where a bandit "was pitched as a symbol of the Japanese providing anti-colonial and nationalist leadership in Asia". "I've been very interested in exploring historiography - or how history is written - through theatre, and I felt that the movie provided this very rich material," he says. For the director, Fared, the play brought up similar questions. "How can we relate back to an event that happened way before this current time? How true is history being recorded?" he asks. 인터넷카지노 Work began on Tiger Of Malaya well before it was announced that Singapore would commemorate its bicentennial in 2019 - 200 years after Stamford Raffles landed. Fared says: "We were not particularly aligning it to the whole bicentennial celebrations. But somehow with this work, it questions our very own existence in this part of the world through the lens of history."
