Liverpool (album)

Liverpool is Frankie Goes to Hollywood's second and final studio album, released in October 1986. It would be the band's final album of all-new material, lead singer Holly Johnson would leave the band following the corresponding world tour, followed by a flurry of lawsuits from ZTT; the album's production was handled by Trevor Horn's engineer Stephen Lipson, who urged the band to play their own instruments on this album Liverpool therefore features a heavier rock sound than its predecessor. The album was a commercial disappointment compared to the band's previous effort, though it charted high at #5 in the United Kingdom and Germany, #7 on the Austrian and Swiss music charts and #8 in Norway; the cover photo was different depending on.

Horace Walker

Horace Walker was an English mountaineer who made many notable first ascents, including Mount Elbrus and the Grandes Jorasses. Born in 1838, Walker was the son of Liverpool lead merchant and mountaineer Francis Walker and brother of Lucy Walker, the first woman to climb the Matterhorn. Walker was President of the Alpine Club in 1891-1893; the Horace Walker glacier and Horace Walker hut in the Southern Alps of New Zealand are named after him. In commemoration of his first ascent of the Grandes Jorasses on 30 June 1868, Walker gives his name to Pointe Walker, the highest summit of the mountain. Barre des Écrins with A. W.

Good Rocking Tonight

"Good Rocking Tonight" was a jump blues song released in 1947 by its writer, Roy Brown and was covered by many recording artists. The song includes the memorable refrain, "Well I heard the news, there's good rocking tonight!" The song anticipated elements of roll music. Brown had first offered his song to Wynonie Harris, he approached Cecil Gant that night, but after hearing Brown sing, Gant made a 2:30 AM phone call to Jules Braun, the president of DeLuxe Records. After Brown sang his song over the phone, Braun asked Brown to sing it a second time, he told Gant, "Give him fifty dollars and don't let him out of your sight."Five weeks Brown recorded the song for DeLuxe Records. Only after Brown's record had gained traction in New Orleans did. Harris' version was more energetic than Brown's original version, featuring black gospel style handclapping; this may have contributed to the composition's greater success on the national R&B chart. Brown's original recording hit #13 of the Billboard R&B chart, but Harris' record became a #1 R&B hit and remained on the chart for half a year.

Brown's single would re-enter the chart in 1949, peaking at #11. Harris had a reputation for carousing, sometimes forgot lyrics, his "Good Rockin'" recording session followed Brown's original lyrics, but by the end, he replaced the last section with a series of raucous "hoy hoy hoy!" interjections, a used expression in jump blues tunes of the time, going back to 1945's "The Honeydripper" by Joe Liggins. The song is a primer of sorts on the popular black music of the era, making lyrical reference to Sweet Lorraine, Sioux City Sue, Sweet Georgia Brown, Elder Brown, Deacon Jones. All of these characters had figured prominently in previous hit songs; the song has been credited with being the most successful record to that point to use the word "rock" not as a euphemism for sex, but as a descriptive for the musical style, a connection which would become clearer in 1954 when a version of "Good Rockin' Tonight" became Elvis Presley's second-ever single. While Brown missed out on the biggest hit version of his song, its success kicked off his own career, which included two #1 R&B hits.

In 1949, he released "Rockin' at Midnight", a sequel to "Good Rockin' Tonight." It reached # 2 on the R&B chart. In 1954, "Good Rockin' Tonight" was the second Sun Records release by Elvis Presley, along with "I Don't Care if the Sun Don't Shine" on the flip side. Presley and his bandmates hewed closer to the original Roy Brown version, but omitted the lyrics' by-then-dated roster of names in favor of a simpler, more energetic "We're gonna rock, rock!" Both sides of this second record featuring "Elvis Presley and Bill" "stiffed". The song was used for the biopic Elvis. Elvis Presley – lead vocals, acoustic rhythm guitar Scotty Moore – lead guitar Bill Black – double bass Buddy Holly in 1955 on a demo, posthumously released on various compilation tributes. Carl Perkins in 1958 on his album Whole Lotta Shakin'. Jimmy Rushing in 1959 on his album Rushing Lullabies. Link Wray in 1965 under the name "Good Rockin' Tonight". Paul McCartney recorded the song for the Unplugged album. Montrose recorded the song for their 1973 self-titled debut album.

Bruce Springsteen performed the song during his 1978 Darkness Tour as the opening number. He occasionally performed the song on The River Tour in 1980–81. Springsteen performed the song for the first time in 27 years in 2008 on the Magic Tour. A Gene Summers cover version of "Good Rocking Tonight" was included on a French compilation album The Big Beat Show issued by Big Beat Records in 1981. Joe Ely recorded the song for his 1981 album. Contraband, an all-star hard rock group recorded their version of the song for their debut self-titled album in 1991. Ricky Nelson recorded the song for his 1958 album Ricky Nelson. Lonnie Lee recorded. Wes Paul Gerrard features this song in his live performances opening up with it in his second set, he will record the song in his new Manchester to Memphis album which he is recording at Sun Studio, Tennessee in May 2010. Little Willie Littlefield recorded a version for his 1982 album Houseparty. Other cover versions of the song include Buddy Holly, Les Chaussettes Noires, The Treniers, Pat Boone, James Brown, Dread Zeppelin, Commander Cody and His Lost Planet Airmen, Mexican Rock & Roll group Los Teen Tops, Kevin DuBrow, The Honeydrippers and Jerry Lee Lewis.

The Doors recorded a version for their 1972 album Full Circle under the title "Good Rockin'". A recording of a 9-year-old Raul Seixas singing to "Good Rocking Tonight" appears as the intro to his debut album, Krig-ha, Bandolo!. Buddy Holly

Killer Legends

Killer Legends is a 2014 American documentary written and directed by Joshua Zeman for Chiller. Zeman and Rachel Mills, a researcher, investigate the real-life origins of several urban legends. Joshua Zeman and Rachel Mills investigate the origins of several urban legends: The Hookman In The Hook, a man with a hook for a hand attempts to murder teenagers who park in a lovers' lane. Zeman and Mills trace this to the Texarkana Moonlight Murders, an unsolved crime, the basis for the early slasher film The Town That Dreaded Sundown. Zeman and Mills compare and contrast the film to the real-life events, both to the urban legend. Neither the real-life events nor the film feature a killer with a hook for a hand, but they do have a serial killer who preys upon teenagers who make out at a lovers' lane; the Candyman Zeman and Mills travel to Houston, Texas, to investigate the urban legend of poisoned candy. Though they dismiss the widespread belief that strangers have handed out poisoned candy to neighborhood children and Mills describe Ronald Clark O'Bryan, a man who poisoned his own son for insurance money and used the urban legend to deflect suspicion from himself.

To mask his son's murder, O'Bryan attempted to kill several other children, but they did not eat their poisoned candy. O'Bryan was executed for the crimes; the Babysitter and the Man Upstairs In Columbia, Missouri and Mills investigate the legend of The Babysitter and the Man Upstairs, in which a babysitter is harassed and killed by a man inside the house. Although there are no documented cases of serial killers who have targeted babysitters and Mills describe how Janett Christman was murdered while babysitting. An African-American man was convicted and executed for the murder, but Zeman and Mills question whether he was guilty, they instead point to an acquaintance who knew Christman was babysitting and had become obsessed with her. The Killer Clown In Chicago and Mills investigate the evil clown trope and associated "phantom clown" sightings across the world. In these cases, children report having seen a suspicious clown that attempts to entice them into an unmarked van to kidnap them. Zeman and Mills express skepticism and explain it as a manifestation of coulrophobia, the fear of clowns.

They trace this urban legend to a serial killer who unrelatedly worked as a clown. Although Gacy never killed anyone while dressed as a clown, they state that his infamy popularized the trope. Rachel Mills Joshua Zeman After directing Cropsey, a documentary that examines the similarities between a New York urban legend and a real-life kidnapper, Zeman approached Chiller with the idea of a series based on the intersection of urban legends and true crime. For business reasons, the series was retooled into an anthology TV film. Clowns were not planned to be a subject covered in the documentary, but Mills uncovered a large amount of information on them. Upon bringing this to Zeman's attention, he agreed to expand the documentary to include them. Killer Legends played for one night at the Nitehawk Cinema in Brooklyn, New York on March 13, 2014. Chiller aired it on March 16, 2014. Breaking Glass Pictures released the DVD on July 1, 2014, it was one of the top ten best-selling independent film on iTunes in July 2014.

Patrick Cooper of Bloody Disgusting rated it 4/5 stars and called it "a wholly fascinating experience on a lot of levels", though he criticized it for focusing so much on the filmmakers. Brutal as Hell wrote, "Overall what we have here is a thoughtful and interesting documentary, it will entertain you, creep you out and you will learn some history along the way." Michel Sabourin of HorrorTalk praised the atmosphere and pacing. Horror Society rated it 4/5 stars and called it "insightful and well put together".

The Ido Portal Method

The Ido Portal method is a physical fitness practice utilizing the practitioner's own bodyweight and movements, rather than external weights and machines, to develop strength and flexibility. Developed by Israeli trainer Ido Portal, it is a mixed technique drawing from Capoeira; the Ido Portal method is based on the concept of self-dominance. The practitioners are encouraged to master their own body in free movement inverted or crawling on the ground, before engaging in other sports; the method is inspired by Capoeira, which Portal practiced for years before developing his own technique. It takes elements from dance, gymnastics and other martial arts; the method was developed by trainer Ido Portal. He said; some of his modifications of the Afro-Brazilian art include touching the ground with the butt and back, not considered good technique in Capoeira. Different videos and photographs of Ido Portal appeared in the middle of 2000s; those clips showed him flowing on the floor like liquid and hand-balancing.

The method is being used by people, who are calling themselves movers and is centered on "Movement culture". Conor McGregor - Irish professional mixed martial artist and boxer has trained with Portal; the method is used by Malaysian yoga master and TV host Hansen Lee. Official website
