My First Night Without You

"My First Night Without You" is the second single released from Cyndi Lauper's third album A Night To Remember. The ballad is about coming home for the first time without a partner being there after a break up; the video clip is about this, with Lauper coming home after a long day at work to an empty room after a separation. The song was written by Tom Kelly and Billy Steinberg; the latter two wrote "True Colors" and "I Drove All Night". Its B-side was "Unabbreviated Love"; the song is a fan favorite. To promote the single, promotional posters were sent to different malls and music stores that sold the single when it was released; the single failed to make a big impact on most charts in the world. It did. In the Radio Cidade from São Paulo, this song was #1. In Colombia, the single was #1 for 10 weeks. Since the track didn't do well on U. S. radio, most fans think more radio-friendly songs from the album, like "Unconditional Love", would have done better as the commercially released second single. The video for "My First Night Without You", released in 1989, was one of the first to be closed-captioned for the hearing impaired.

Strand Theatre, Toowoomba

Strand Theatre is a heritage-listed cinema at 159 - 167 Margaret Street, Toowoomba City, Toowoomba Region, Australia. It was built from 1915 to 1933 by Luke Halley, it was added to the Queensland Heritage Register on 21 October 1992. This three-storeyed brick picture theatre was erected in 1915-16 for James Patrick Newman, a Toowoomba City alderman, it was constructed during the early and enthusiastic adoption of cinema by Australian audiences in the first two decades of the 20th century, when the new nation boasted a vibrant local film industry which competed healthily with imported British and American product. Its construction was illustrative of the early 20th century attempt to legitimise cinema as a respectable middle-class entertainment in Australia. In 1915 Newman commissioned established Brisbane architect George Henry Male Addison to design a picture theatre on a site in Margaret Street adjoining the Crown Hotel; this site had operated as the Crystal Palace Picture Gardens since early 1914.

Addison called tenders in July 1915, the contract was awarded to Luke Halley. The American-derived design was similar to picture theatres erected in other Australian cities during the 1910s. In particular, the large semi-circular glazed arch was reminiscent of the Majestic and Britannia in Melbourne and the Pavilion in Brisbane, it was, unorthodox in that the top level was designed as additional accommodation for the Crown Hotel, owned by JP Newman. This third storey was accessed via a staircase from the hotel. Newman leased the theatre to moving picture exhibitor Senora Spencer, who named the venue the Strand, like her theatres in Brisbane and Newcastle; the first screening, accompanied by the Strand Symphony Orchestra and an opening ceremony performed by the Mayor of Toowoomba, took place on the evening of Saturday 15 April 1916. In 1918 the lease was taken over by Union Theatres, an early Australian distribution-exhibition conglomerate, who repainted and redecorated the theatre early in 1919, when the building was closed temporarily during the Spanish influenza epidemic.

From the mid-1920s the Strand was leased by independent exhibitors. In mid-1930 sound projection equipment was installed and the theatre was host to some of Toowoomba's earliest "talkies". In 1933 the owners of the Strand arranged with Birch Carroll & Coyle for Sydney architect and theatre designer Guy Crick, designing Toowoomba's rebuilt Empire Theatre for Birch Carroll & Coyle, to revamp the interior of the Strand in art moderne style. At the same time the first floor foyer and office space was extended to the upper level of a newly constructed two-storeyed building along the east wall. So popular were movies during the depression that the Strand continued evening screenings throughout the renovations, although most of the daily matinees were cancelled; the newly refurbished theatre was opened in early December 1933, with the local newspaper claiming that the Strand was the first picture theatre in Australia to be refitted in the art moderne style. The Strand flourished during the 1930s, proudly advertising "Always first with the latest and the greatest", screened premier features from Fox, Warner Brothers and United Artists to large audiences.

In 1957 the current owners acquired the theatre and introduced a wide screen format, renovated the main foyer in the 1960s and again in the 1970s. A major redevelopment of the theatre and the adjoining buildings was completed in 1992; the adjoining Crown Hotel and the amusement centre were demolished and four small cinemas were erected around the original cinema, stripped of seating and refurbished to become a large foyer for the new cinema complex. The Strand Theatre, fronting Margaret Street to the south, is a three-storeyed rendered brick building with a hipped corrugated iron roof concealed behind a shaped gable parapet. Framed by pilasters, the decorative symmetrical street facade consists of a large semi-circular arch at the first floor level with a quatrefoil window to either side, is surmounted by a deep cornice, giving the impression of a heightened entrance; this is bisected by a large turret, with three circular leadlight windows, which projects over the entrance and is supported by four large rendered brackets surrounding a statue of a female figure holding a lamp.

Lunette windows to either side have leadlight panels. The second floor has five arched windows with Art Nouveau style leadlight panels, above, a deep cornice, with rendered relief work to the shaped gable above, surmounted by three large finials; the street level has display arches either side of the entrance, with a recent cantilevered metal awning above. Internally, little remains of the 1916 decor apart from the pressed metal ceiling and cornices of the auditorium, tessellated tiling in the ground floor foyer, the finishes to the former hotel rooms on the second floor; the latter are partitioned in four inch vertical tongue and groove boarding and have pressed metal ceilings. Rooms open off a central corridor accessed from the former neighbouring hotel, now demolished; this area is now sealed off. The floor is supported by spanning steel beams; the original balcony remains intact although this is now used only as a link between the projection rooms of the new cinema. Many of the 1933 decorative elements, such as the attached pilasters constructed of rendered canvas over a timber frame, are fixed over existing surfaces.

Lyrebird motif grilles of gilded timber were adopted to cover the former window openings, a mechanical ventilation system was installed. Art Deco banding which once surrounded the proscenium remain only as a fr

Goodbye, Spaceblade

Goodbye, Spaceblade is the second album by Sywnthkrawft. The process of making the album has been troublesome because the band couldn't find a producer to the album, it was during the first sessions the guitarist, Daniel Thyberg, left the group. The album was in planning as late as the late summer of 2006. Most of the album was recorded during some sessions in the autumn of 2006 and in the spring of 2007; some piano versions of the songs from the album were recorded during a live event in Mora, United States and one of these songs were released on the first single from the album. As a result of the trip William got inspired to write three tracks featured on the album; the album release got postponed many times, but it was released in April 2007. Some songs from the album were performed live in November 2007 and were released on the live-bootleg Tuxedo Junction. On 8 March 2007, the first single from the album, "The Photographer's Exceptional Pictures for Body and Mind", debuted on #1 in the Swedish chart Dalatoppen.

The next single "Mademoiselle Musicale" was supposed to be released in June 2007 but was cancelled. During their summer vacation in 2007 William re-recorded all the songs on the album; these re-recordings will be for sale as the Spaceblade album instead of the old one.
