Ride Going Blank Again 20th Anniversary Rar

Along with the 20th anniversary reissue of Ride's debut LP, Nowhere, comes a thick booklet of old photos, liner notes, and a Jim DeRogatis-penned look back on the Oxford shoegazers' near-perfect debut. Flip to page 20 and you'll find a gem: a grainy shot of the foursome sitting on a bed, shoulder-to-shoulder, each with their own reading material. Vocalist/guitarist Mark Gardener is at one end, nose-deep in a copy of the cornball self-help novella Jonathan Livingston Seagull. His bandmate, songwriting foil, and eventual nemesis Andy Bell is left of center, peeking out from behind an issue of Bunty, an old British comic written for teenage girls. Bassist Steve Queralt is engrossed in now-defunct UK pop rag Number One, while drummer Loz Colbert seems rapt by the Christopher Isherwood novel perched at his thumbs. With the exception of Gardener's book, a likely reference to Nowhere opener "Seagull", it's all very English. But at the same time, there's magic more universal to unpack from this one image. The four of them look like brothers. They look like ordinary, wise-ass kids you knew or know. They look like a band.

The first three songs also appeared in the US on the "Vapour Trail" CD-single. All four songs from the EP were added to the Nowhere album as bonus tracks on its re-release in 2001, 20th anniversary reissue in 2011, and 25th anniversary reissue in 2015.

In celebration of Gundam's 25th anniversary (and also the 20th anniversary of Zeta Gundam), the 50-episode series was compiled into a new movie trilogy. According to Tomino, the movie series was created to fix some of the problems he identified in the Zeta TV series and to bring the 20-year-old series into a 21st-century context for the new generation now experiencing the increasingly commercialized series such as Mobile Suit Gundam SEED. The first movie, "Heirs to the Stars", opened on May 28, 2005, followed by "Lovers" on October 29, 2005, and "Love is the Pulse of the Stars" on March 6, 2006. The movies were a surprising hit, and went on to make almost 2 billion yen in box office revenue in total.

Permanent Waves had shown Rush to be keen listeners, turning the electronics and terse dynamics in New Wave rock to their own ends. But Moving Pictures, co-produced with old hand Terry Brown, had a concentrated urgency and black-steel sheen that sounded like Rush were charging forward and coming full circle at the same time - going back to the direct impact of their first albums, via the progressive-metal adventures on everything in-between. "The difference is in the organization of the music," Lee claimed during our 1981 car ride. "It's not just that the songs are four minutes long so they can get on the radio. It's the quality of those four minutes."

2. The original text of the Citation reads: The above units are cited for extraordinary heroism and outstanding performance of combat duties in action against the armed enemy near Kapyong, Korea, on the dates indicated. The enemy had broken through the main line of resistance and penetrated to the area north of Kapyong. The units listed above were deployed to stem the assault. The 3rd Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment moved to the right flank of the sector and took up defensive positions north of the Pukhan River. The 2nd Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry defended in the vicinity of Hill 677 on the left flank. Company A, 72 Heavy Tank Battalion, supported all units to the full extent of its capacity, and in addition, kept the main roads open and assisted in evacuating the wounded. Troops from a retreating division passed through the sector which enabled enemy troops to infiltrate with the withdrawing forces. The enemy attacked savagely under the clangor of bugles and trumpets. The forward elements were completely surrounded going through the first day into the second. Again and again the enemy threw waves of troops at the gallant defenders, and many times succeeded in penetrating the outer defences, but each time the courageous, indomitable and determined soldiers repulsed the fanatical attacks. Ammunition ran low and there was not time for food. Critical supplies were dropped by air to the encircled troops, and they stood their ground in resolute defiance of the enemy. With serene and indefatigable persistence, the gallant soldiers held their positions and took heavy toll of the enemy. In some instances when the enemy penetrated the defences, the Commanders directed friendly artillery fire on their own positions in repelling the thrusts. Toward the close of 25 April, the enemy break through had been stopped. The seriousness of the break through on the central front had been changed from defeat to victory by the gallant stand by these heroic and courageous soldiers. The 3rd Battalion, Royal Australian Regiment; 2nd Battalion, Princess Patricia's Canadian Light Infantry; and A Company, 72nd Heavy Tank Battalion, displayed such gallantry, determination and esprit de corps in accomplishing their mission under extremely difficult and hazardous conditions as to set them apart and above all other units participating in the campaign, and by their achievements they brought distinguished credit on themselves, their homelands, and all freedom loving nations.

What gripped me about the story on which I based my book, were its remarkable constellation of characters and the fateful intertwining of their lives. On a stormy winter night in 1984, 10 people boarded a small commuter plane bound for remote communities in the Canadian north. An hour later six were dead and four men fighting for their lives: a 24-year old rookie pilot who hadn't wanted to fly that night, but felt his job was on the line; my father, a prominent politician; a young cop; and an accused criminal he was escorting to face charges.That night the dividing lines of power, wealth and status dissolved as these men from vastly different backgrounds struggled together to cheat death. They formed unlikely bonds that would endure a lifetime and prove vital in helping each man transfigure his life. Quite simply, this was a book that neededto be written because the story of these heroic men and their journeys from tragedy to lives begun anew proved more dramatic than fiction.Why now, so long after it happened? Years later, watching my father struggle, it struck me how powerful and enduring the impact of this single tragic event had been on his life. My father often spoke about whether he'd made good use of the 'extra time' God had granted him and not others on that plane. He kept in touch with the luckless young drifter who saved his life. Every year on the anniversary of the crash, my father would check in with the pilot to see how his life was going. Then, twenty years later on the anniversary of the crash, my dad organized a reunion of the survivors. I'd always suspected that what he'd shared with these men the night of the crash was important to him, but I suddenly realized that their connection was much more than a tenuous bond. These men forged unfathomable friendships and it was deeply important to each of them that their lives unfolded in meaningful ways. How did you come up with the title?The title of the book, Into the Abyss, comes from a quote by Joseph Campbell, the American mythologist who coined the phrase "follow your bliss". He wrote extensively about man's quest for meaning and one of his quotes really captured the inspiring journeys of the men in my book: It is by going down into the abyss that we recover the treasures of life. Where you stumble, there lies your treasure. All of these men had gone down into an abyss the night of the crash. They had watched others die and faced the spectre of their own deaths. And in rising on the crucible of that tragedy and trying to rebuild their lives they had all stumbled before finding the true riches of life. What was the hardest part of writing your book?The research. In reconstructing the story, there were two things working against me. The first was that I'd been living overseas when the crash occurred and I'd missed the whole thing. I read about it in a local newspaper—the most surreal moment of my life. Many clearly remembered the events of that night and the days that followed, with good reason. The government opposition leader and five other men and women from the close knit communities of northern Canada where I'd grown up died in that crash and thirty-four children lost a parent. But I had no first-hand knowledge. By the time I began my research two decades had passed so I was forced to recreate every detail and emotion from archival materials and interviews. When it came to archival materials, I scoured newspaper and magazine articles, television footage, legal documents and government records and had to submit access to information requests for official search and rescue or other records, often waiting months for replies.When it came to the interviews there were also numerous constraints. Some survivors were reluctant to share what happened that night or the personal details of their lives; others familiar with the crash were no longer alive to be interviewed.Finally, I felt a tremendous debt to both the men in this story and the families of the deceased to get the facts right and do no harm. That's a very tall order when you are dealing with people who are still alive. In some cases the children of the deceased are people I grew up with. I also wanted to do justice to the lives of the survivors who entrusted me with their stories, including my father who passed away of cancer before I could finish the book.There's some of your own story in this book. Was it hard writing about yourself and your relationship with your dad?Excruciating. In fact, I didn't want to be in this book. I didn't feel this story was about me. It was only after submitting my first draft that my editors told me that by not including myself in the book, I was depriving readers of an important personal connection and way in to the story. They asked me to write a first person introduction to the book and rewrite the final section so my voice could be heard. That was really hard for me to do, as I'd been narrating from the distant and decidedly safer third person point of view. My editors also told me that they felt that they knew all of the men in this story exceptmy father. They asked me to delve more deeply into his life and character. That was really hard. After all, he was my dad and though he'd been a prominent public figure much of his life, underneath that public image, he was a very private man. What right had I to bare the details of his personal life?In the end, that editorial decision turned out to be a gift. I came to appreciate my father so much more and had the rare privilege that few children get to truly understand a parent as a person in their own right. So this book also pays homage to my dad and to the spirit of his remarkable life. For that opportunity, I feel very lucky.Who have you discovered lately?Clare Vaye Watkins. Battleborn, her debut short story collection was stunning. 350c69d7ab
