Dornblaser Field

Dornblaser Field is the name of two outdoor athletic stadiums in the western United States, located in Missoula, Montana. Both were former home fields of the University of Montana Grizzlies football teams and were named for Paul Dornblaser, a captain of the football team in 1912, killed in World War I. Both stadiums had conventional north-south orientations at an approximate elevation of 3,200 feet above sea level; the first ivy-covered stone venue opened 108 years ago in 1912 on campus at the base of Mount Sentinel and east of University Hall. Its southwestern portion is now the location of the Mansfield Library, completed in 1978, it hosted the Griz until an off-campus stadium opened in 1968, a "temporary" stadium about a mile southwest which held 12,500 spectators in steel and wood bleachers. The second stadium was replaced for football when Washington–Grizzly Stadium opened in October 1986, back on campus, east of Dahlberg Arena. Renovated, Dornblaser Field continues as the home venue for the Grizzlies' track and field teams.

Honey (Mariah Carey song)

"Honey" is a song by American singer and songwriter Mariah Carey. It was released on August 26, 1997 by Columbia Records as the lead single from her sixth studio album Butterfly; the song was written and produced by Carey, Sean "Puff Daddy" Combs, Kamaal "Q-Tip" Fareed, Steven "Stevie J" Jordan. The song samples "Hey DJ" by the World's Famous Supreme Team, "The Body Rock" by the Treacherous Three. "Honey" was a re-defining song in Carey's career, pushing her further into the hip hop music world. "Honey" was acclaimed by music critics, who called Carey's musical transition "genuine". "Honey" was successful in the United States, becoming Carey's third single to debut atop the US Billboard Hot 100, a feat that has yet to be duplicated. The single stayed at number one for three consecutive weeks. "Honey" hit the top-five in Canada, New Zealand and the United Kingdom, the top-ten in Australia and Sweden, the top 20 in the majority of charts worldwide. "Honey" was nominated in two categories at the 40th Annual Grammy Awards, for Best Female R&B Vocal Performance and Best R&B Song.

Carey included the song in the set-list of various live shows and future tours, where she would sing both the original and remix versions. "Honey" is well known for its accompanying music video, which presented a more sexual and less conservative image of Carey than had been seen. The video features Carey being held hostage in a mansion, which she escapes in a James Bond-themed plot. Subsequent scenes see Carey escaping her assailants on a watercraft, dancing aboard a ship with sailors, frolicking on a beautiful island with her lover; the video garnered much coverage, as many comparisons were made between the video and the rumors of Carey's failing marriage. While Carey denied the comparisons were anything more than coincidence, many close friends including Walter Afanasieff, Carey's writing partner, felt they were more than obvious. After the success of her urban crossover album Daydream, Carey began exerting more control over the creative aspects of her career. In doing so, she began pursuing a more hip-hop oriented sound, something different from anything she had recorded previously.

However, she was still writing ballads with Afanasieff, but began looking for more hip-hop/R&B producers to helm part of her new project. Carey began working on the song, recorded in February 1997, with Q-Tip, they brought the lyrics and melody over to Puff Daddy who, as a producer, had just earned his second number one single on the Hot 100 with "Mo Money Mo Problems." Due to rumors of Puffy's overbearing nature, Carey recorded her vocals separately, until she gave him a few demos to choose from. Puffy explained why Carey recorded her vocals separately, his feelings regarding having worked with her: A lot of people feel I'm overbearing, so I wasn't allowed in the studio when she did her vocals. I'm trying to work on that, I'm such a perfectionist, sometimes I don't give people the chance to breathe. So I've been banned from a lot of studios. Mariah until she thought it was perfect, like a hundred times, she gave me like a hundred tracks to choose from. Puffy expressed his respect for Mariah and her craft, mentioning that she re-did her vocals many times until she felt they were perfect.

After they had the vocals and Puffy began working on the song's hook and incorporating the music samples and blending them into the bridge and chorus. After the song was completed, Combs was confident with the song, calling it "slammin'," but because of its heavy hip-hop influence, he felt only cautiously optimistic about the song's commercial success. On a more personal note, "Honey" served as Carey's first single after her separation from estranged husband, Tommy Mottola, who lead her current record label, Columbia. "Honey" is that blends hip hop and R&B genres. The song is set in the signature common time, is written in the key of E♭ major, it features a basic chord progression of A♭-F♭-1. Carey's vocal range in the song spans from the note of C3 to the high note of B♭5; the song's remix featured rap leads with some vocals rapped by Combs himself. The track was different from anything Carey had recorded, was described as "street Hip-Hop music, with a booming bass." The song's melody was driven by Stevie J's keyboard notes.

Combs's production gave the song a "light and airy" effect, further distancing it from Carey's contemporary sound. "Honey" featured musical samples from Treacherous Three's "The Body Rock," and "Hey DJ" by The World's Famous Supreme Team. The track united hip-hop and R&B with traces of pop music and was described as a " catchy chorus, combining hip-hop and R&B into something that wasn't going to be denied by anyone, offering a powerful start to a record." According to author Chris Nickson, "Honey" revealed a more confident and independent side to Carey that had never been presented in her previous work. The song embodied a more mature and confident woman, with sultrier lyrics and a thumping hip-hop beat to accompany it. "Honey" garnered acclaimed response from contemporary music critics. David Browne from Entertainment Weekly described the importance the song held for Carey's musical transition, he wrote "You're prepared for a song on which Carey breaks free of her adult-contemporary chains and gets down."

He felt "Honey" sounded as "anyone striking out on his or her own — caught between old and new habits and taking cautious baby steps into the future." Browne commented that Carey showed a commendable vocal restraint in the song, "showing some admirable restraint, she nestles herself into the downy-soft beats of "Honey." Author Chris Nickson felt t
