Famous Photo “Lunch Atop a Skyscraper” Isn’t Even the Empire State Building

56 minutes ago

A lot of us have seen this famous photo titled Lunch Atop a Skyscraper once or twice in history books and we’ve all been led to believe it had something to do with the construction of the Empire State Building. First, it didn’t. This picture was taken at Rockefeller Center in Midtown. Plus, the whole thing was staged. Guys didn’t eat lunch like this that often no matter what history might tell you. If you look even with just a glance there are no safety harnesses, no ropes, no anything that could catch these guys if they fell except each

When The Quest for the Holy Grail Meets Parkour in Real Life

1 hour ago

Parkour meeting the quest for the holy grail in real life seems like a fantasy come true, but unfortunately that’s probably all it would be. I happen to love watching Parkour. I couldn’t do it for the life of me but it’s interesting to watch those that do manage these movements as they run, jump, flip, and perform acrobatic feats of strength and agility that are simply amazing to behold. Now if they could do that in chainmail armor however that would be something quite impressive to see. These suits of armor were not the incredibly heavy plates that went

2 hours ago

If you’ve heard this song before then you know what to listen for when the organ music comes in the beginning and the voice of Prince sparks up, giving what almost sounds like a eulogy on this thing called life. It’s a very iconic and powerful sound that managed to make this song into his second number one hit and allowed the song to travel upwards on the charts even after his passing.  The song seems to have a lot of people thinking that it speaks about having or clinging to Christian values, but whatever you want to believe about

Given its name, it should come as no surprise to learn that John Wick: Chapter 3 will be the third movie in the John Wick franchise.

A Wonderful Banjo Cover of Castlevania’s Stalker Theme

8 hours ago

Remember Castlevania’s insane stalker theme? It sounds even better on a banjo if you can believe it. I can recall so many hours spent on that game just trying to move through each level without getting killed again and again. And then there were those that somehow found the pattern of the attacks and the entire game in fact and moved through it without any trouble at all. And then as the Castlevania games got more advanced and tougher as time went by I think a lot of people kind of lost interest. The game itself is fun, engaging, and

Five Things Movies Always Get Wrong about Swords

8 hours ago

Movies get things wrong a lot of the time and there’s usually a reason for it. The idea behind swords and their use in movies is usually quite erroneous because to do anything else would be to alienate the fans and lose a great deal of money since people love to watch sword fighting in cinema. The problem with this is that swords in the movies are a great deal different than they are in real life. In the films they are either grand and seemingly noble in their purpose or they are big, ungainly things that are good for

Career Ending Ramifications Aren’t Enough for Guys Like Kevin Spacey and Harvey Weinstein

10 hours ago

When the New York Times revealed what Harvey Weinstein had been up to, it seemed to have burst a dam. As a result, people who were once reluctant to speak out about what had happened to them because of fear, shame, and a wide range of other causes are now speaking out because each person who manages to overcome their reluctance to speak out encourages other people in similar situations to take that particular step. Something that should be seen as a significant improvement on the previous state of things. The Ending of Careers Is Not Enough So far, the

After Hetty’s departure, there was a brief period of discomfort with the arrival of new characters Hidoko and Mosley. Mercifully, that transition period has passed. That type of discomfort within a team can sour otherwise well-constructed episodes. Now, Mosley has good relationships with, and the respect of, her team. Hidoko has also bonded with everyone, just in time for an episode that has hints of girl power. Plus, this episode gives Daniela Ruah an excuse
