Someday Came Suddenly
Someday Came Suddenly is the debut studio album by American electronicore band Attack Attack!. It was released on November 2008 through Rise Records; the album's name derives from the third track, "Bro, Ashley's Here", is the only album to include lead vocalist Austin Carlile. Someday Came Suddenly was both recorded and released in 2008. Attack Attack! were signed to Rise Records soon after the surface of the band's previous release, an EP entitled If Guns Are Outlawed, Can We Use Swords?, released during the same year. The band toured in-support of Someday Came Suddenly with Escape the Fate, Black Tide, William Control, Burn Halo after it surfaced. Five of the album's tracks, "Stick Stickly", "Party Foul", "What Happens If I Can't Check My MySpace When We Get There?", "The People's Elbow", "Dr. Shavargo Pt. 3", are rerecorded and renamed versions of the tracks from their EP If Guns Are Outlawed, Can We Use Swords?. "Interlude", is an EDM instrumental song released under Caleb Shomo's side project, DJ Club.
Someday Came Suddenly peaked at number 193 on the Billboard 200 and number 25 on the Independent Albums chart. Its highest peak was at number 9 on the Heatseekers Albums chart. While the album was commercially a moderate success, it received mixed reviews, with praise directed towards the heavier tracks and Carlile's unclean vocals, criticism being drawn towards the electronic elements and Franck's auto-tuned vocals; the first single, "Stick Stickly", was released for digital download on June 4, 2008. It is named after the famous Nickelodeon character Stick Stickly, a popsicle stick voiced by Paul Christie that hosted the programming block Nick in the Afternoon, which aired between 1995 and 1998. A music video for the song was released that year as well; the video is infamous for starting the internet meme "crabcore", which shows guitarist Andrew Whiting squatting in a "crab-like" stance whilst nodding his head and playing the guitar. The songs "Dr. Shavargo Pt. 3" and "The People's Elbow" were released as singles.
"Dr. Shavargo Pt. 3" had a music video produced for it, which consists of a live performance with the song dubbed over. Neither video features Carlile. Instead his position in the videos was taken by the band's then-lead vocalist, Nick Barham
NickRewind is a programming block that broadcasts nightly over TeenNick. The block shows reruns of classic mid-late 1980's, 1990's, early-mid 2000's children's programming shows that aired on Nickelodeon during their original runs; the block airs seven nights a week from 11 p.m. to 6 a.m. The block was preceded in the format by The'90s Are All That, which debuted the night of July 25, 2011 and was inspired by a large amount of interest in classic Nickelodeon series from the 1990s by users of social media outlets such as Facebook. From October 7, 2011 through October 23, 2011, the block aired in an earlier time slot, from 10 p.m. to midnight. Response to the debut was positive. The'90s Are All That was two hours in length, with most of that time airing from midnight to 2 a.m. Eastern Time. Beginning October 5, 2015, the block expanded to eight hours encompassing the full overnight block, began airing a broader variety of series and rebranded as The Splat, its name and logo came from Nickelodeon's historic logo, a white brush-printed wordmark on an amorphous orange background, which the network used from 1984 to 2009.
To align itself with Nickelodeon's cross-platform branding, The Splat was renamed NickSplat on May 1, 2017. The block underwent yet another name change when it was renamed NickRewind on March 18, 2019, targeting its focus on airing more Nickelodeon series outside the 90's, including more 80's and 00's programming. NickRewind runs a mix of permanent shows with various other series from Nickelodeon's history featured irregularly. Episodes are repeated several times in a given week; the following shows have a permanent slot on the schedule: Other series that have aired on the block so far on a rotating basis include: Programs with an asterisk had aired on The'90s Are All That prior to the rebrand. Only two shows aired on The'90s Are All That that have yet to air on NickSplat: The Secret World of Alex Mack and Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. Note: These are broadcasting dates, which begin at 6 am and end 24 hours later. NickRewind broadcasts movies based on classic Nickelodeon shows; the following movies that have aired on the block includes: On October 7, 2011, Stick Stickly, who hosted the Nick in the Afternoon block during the mid-1990s, returned to host the block on Friday nights.
The Friday night block revived the "U-Pick" segment from Nick in the Afternoon, allowing viewers to vote online to decide which shows they want to see. Citing Stick's New Year's Hangover, U-Pick went on hiatus for January 2012; the first U-Pick post-hiatus was a showdown between Rocko's Modern Life and The Angry Beavers on February 3. The winning show was Rocko's Modern Life and it aired on the block for the entire weekend. U-Pick returned in early March for a showdown between Salute Your Shorts and CatDog with a marathon over the weekend of March 23 at stake. Salute Your Shorts prevailed. Following the departure of Paul Christie, the voice of Stick Stickly, in March 2012, U-Pick was moved to an online content, in which the winning show would have a number of full episodes released for streaming on the block's official website. Matchups included Double Dare vs. Are You Afraid of the Dark? and Clarissa Explains It All vs. The Secret World of Alex Mack. Stick Stickly did return on August 5, 2013 to host'90s Game Show week on a more permanent basis in a Wednesday night time slot beginning in June 2015.
Votes for the 2015 incarnation are cast via Facebook comments. The'90s Are All That broke from the standard program format to air episodes of series that, because of either problems with securing the broadcast rights or not enough episodes to rerun the series in a regular time slot, did not get a regular spot on the block's lineup; the occurrence of these special program appearances varied widely. NickSplat abandoned the set program schedule block and these types of shows now air in a more frequent rotation. Other shows mentioned or alluded to as series that would be included in the block but, to date, have not appeared, or have only appeared online, include: Cousin Skeeter Wild & Crazy Kids Zoey 101 Nick Arcade Drake & Josh iCarly The Fairly OddParents Avatar: The Last Airbender Big Time Rush Victorious Unfabulous promoted as a future NickRewind series, although available online via VRV in 2019)In most of these cases, rights issues have proven to be an obstacle to clearing reruns. Pete & Pete, in particular, used such an extensive musi

Pinwheel relaunched as Nickelodeon on April 1, 1979, expanded to other cable providers nationwide, it was commercial-free and remained without advertising until 1984. Warner sold Nickelodeon, along with its sister networks MTV and VH1, to Viacom in 1986; as of January 2016, the channel is available to about 92.056 million households in the United States. The channel's name comes from the first five cent movie theaters called nickelodeons.
Its history dates back to December 1, 1977, when Warner Cable Communications launched the first two-way interactive cable system, QUBE, in Columbus, Ohio. Under the name Pinwheel Network, the C-3 cable channel carried Pinwheel daily from 7:00 a.m. to 9:00 p.m. Eastern Time. Nickelodeon launched on April 1, 1979 distributed to Warner Cable systems via satellite on the RCA Satcom-1 transponder. Commercial-free, advertising was introduced in January 1984. Nickelodeon's schedule consists of original series aimed at children, pre-teens and young teenagers, including animated series, to live-action comedy and action series, as well as series aimed at preschoolers, it airs reruns of select original series that have ended their runs, as well as occasional original made-for-TV movies. It aired bi-monthly special editions of Nick News with Linda Ellerbee, a newsmagazine series aimed at children that debuted in 1992 as a weekly series which ended in 2015. Nicktoons is the branding for Nickelodeon's original animated television series.
Until 1991, the animated series that aired on Nickelodeon were imported from foreign countries, some original animated specials were featured on the channel up to that point. Original animated series continue to make up a substantial portion of Nickelodeon's lineup, with 6 to 7 hours of these programs airing on the weekday schedule and around nine hours on weekends, including a five-hour weekend morning animation block. Since the late 2000s, after the channel struck a deal with DreamWorks Animation in 2006 to develop the studio's animated films into weekly series, the network has begun to incorporate Nicktoons that use three-dimensional computer animation in addition to those that are produced through traditional or digital ink and paint. Nickelodeon does not air direct-to-video movies on a regular basis; the channel airs feature films produced by the network's Nickelodeon Movies film production division. Although the film division bears the Nickelodeon brand name, the channel does not have access to most of the movies produced by its film unit.
Nickelodeon does have broadcast rights to most feature films based on or that served as the basis for original series produced by it. Nickelodeon advertises hour-long episodes of its original series as movies. Nickelodeon periodically acquires theatrically released feature films for broadcast on the channel including Universal's Barbie: A Fashion Fairytale, several Monster High films, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles: Turtles Forever, with the Barbie and Monster High films aired under a brokered format in which Mattel purchases the time in order to promote the release of their films on DVD within a few days of the Nickelodeon premiere, an arrangement possible as Nickelodeon does not have to meet the Federal Communications Commission rules which disallow th
Jelly beans are small bean-shaped sugar candies with soft candy shells and thick gel interiors. The confection is sold in a wide variety of colors and flavors, is made of sugar, it has been claimed that jelly beans were first mentioned during 1861, when Boston confectioner William Schrafft urged people to send his jelly beans to soldiers during the American Civil War. It was not until July 1905, that jelly beans were mentioned in the Chicago Daily News; the advertisement publicized bulk jelly beans sold by volume for nine cents per pound, according to the book The Century in Food: America's Fads and Favorites. Most historians contend that jelly beans were first associated with celebrations of Easter in the United States sometime during the 1930s due to their egg-like shape; the basic ingredients of jelly beans include sugar, tapioca or corn syrup, pectin or starch. Minor amounts of the emulsifying agent lecithin, anti-foaming agents, an edible wax such as carnauba wax or beeswax and confectioner's glaze are included.
The ingredients that give each bean its character are relatively small in proportion and may vary depending on the flavor. Most jelly beans are sold as an assortment of about eight different flavors, most of them fruit-based. Assortments of "spiced" jellybeans and gumdrops are available, which include a similar number of spice and mint flavors; the colors of jelly beans correspond with a fruit and a "spiced" flavor. Some premium brands, such as Jelly Belly and The Jelly Bean Factory, are available in many different flavors, including berry, tropical fruit, soft drink, popcorn and novelty ranges, in addition to the familiar fruit and spice flavors. While these are sold as assortments, individual flavors can be purchased from distributors. In United States slang during the 1910s and early 1920s, a "Jellybean" or "Jelly-Bean" was a young man who dressed stylishly but had little else to recommend him, similar to the older terms dandy and fop. F. Scott Fitzgerald published a story about such a character, The Jelly-Bean, during 1920.
In William Faulkner's 1929 novel The Sound and the Fury, Jason complained about his niece Quentin's promiscuity, remarking that "the town jellybeans" gave her the "go-by". The song "Jelly Bean" was made popular during the 1940s by Phil Harris, it was written by Jimmie Dupre, Sam Rosen, Joe Verges and published in New Orleans during 1920 by Universal Music Publishers, Inc. When Beatlemania broke out in 1963, fans of The Beatles in the US pelted the band with jelly beans. Media related to Jelly beans at Wikimedia Commons
A tongue depressor is a tool used in medical practice to depress the tongue to allow for examination of the mouth and throat. The most common modern tongue depressors are flat, wooden blades and rounded at both ends, but tongue depressors have been made of a variety of materials. Since they are inexpensive and difficult to clean because of their porous texture, wooden tongue depressors are labeled for disposal after a single use. Hobbyists and teachers have found a multitude of uses for tongue depressors in their projects. Tongue depressors may be used to form so-called "stick bombs". Earlier versions of depressors were made from pine, or redwood woods. Tongue depressors made from wood and metal exist from the American Civil War.

Nick Jr. (TV programming block)
Nick Jr. is a programming block on the Nickelodeon television channel, seen on Nickelodeon weekday mornings. As its name suggests, it is aimed at young children aged under 7, it is owned by a division of Viacom. Throughout the 1980s, Nickelodeon aired programs for preschoolers on weekend mornings. After Nickelodeon's preschool block premiered a slew of new shows in 1987, it began using the Nick Junior branding on January 4, 1988, coinciding with the premiere of The World of David the Gnome; that year, the block's name was shortened to Nick Jr. and its new logo became a distinctive feature for the block. The Nick Jr. logo was orange for'Nick' and blue for'Jr.', it varied in the shape or species. Nick Jr.'s initial network IDs featured two live-action children walking to a refrigerator and opening it, revealing an animated character. From 1989 to 2000, other companies and animators produced IDs for Nick Jr; until July 1990, Pinwheel was featured for three hours for one hour starting in spring 1989.
When Nick Jr.'s original series Eureeka's Castle premiered in September, Pinwheel was split into two separate half hours in the morning and afternoon, where it remained until July 1990. Much of Nick Jr.'s other programs at the time were of foreign origin. On April 5, 1993, Nick Jr. premiered a new series, Cappelli & Company, received a new rebrand which prominently featured a new Nick Jr. logo consisting of an orange parent and a blue child, the slogan Grow and Play. Several Nick Jr. promos and bumpers featured kids playing near the Nick Jr. logo and a theme song with the slogan sung to the melody of London Bridge. Nick Jr. started using a female announcer in its promos and bumpers. Due to Nick Jr.'s declining ratings as well as competition from PBS' children's programming and TLC's Ready Set Learn block, Nickelodeon decided to spend $30 million on revamping their Nick Jr. block in 1994. On September 5, 1994, Nick Jr. rebranded and introduced Face, an animated host that introduced shows and interstitials and led into commercial breaks.
In the context of his segments, Face was capable of materializing objects such as an astronaut, a robot, a clown, a window, a traffic light and wood. He was capable of creating a number of foley sound effects and voices including a signature three-note trumpet noise always following the name "Nick Jr." and at the end of every bumper. He changed colors and feelings. Face was voiced by Chris Phillips, who narrated several Nickelodeon and Nick Jr. promos. More than 400 Face promos were produced by Nick Digital, DMA Animation, Vee-Pee Cartoons. During the fall of 1994, Nick Jr. introduced two new original series, Gullah Gullah Island, Allegra's Window, plus reruns of Rugrats. On September 8, 1996, the first episode of Blue's Clues premiered in prime-time on Nickelodeon debuted on the Nick Jr. block the next day. Nick Jr. premiered four new interstitial series and received a new rebrand produced by Pittard Sullivan. Blue's Clues dethroned Gullah Gullah Island as Nick Jr.'s most popular series. In 1998, Nick Jr. introduced the "Just For Me" slogan.
In 1999 and 2000, Nick Jr. replaced most of its older series with newer series such as Franklin, Maisy, Little Bill, Dora the Explorer. Bob the Builder premiered on January 15, 2001, Oswald on August 20. On September 3, Nick Jr. received a new rebrand produced by Adams Editional Effects. On August 29, 2003, most of Nick Jr.'s older interstitial series and the original Face segments ended their run. On September 2, 2003, Nick Jr. premiered a new series and received a rebrand, as well as introducing more than a dozen new logos. Face was given a new look, which added eyebrows and a chin and straightened the eyes by inverting their colors from white dots on black eyes to larger black dots on white eyes, his voice became a DJ/rapper-like voice. A new interstitial series called Nick Jr. Play Along debuted, which were hosted by two fun live-action hosts: Robin and Zack. Alongside Robin and Zack were four sock puppets called the Feetbeats. On October 11, 2004, Nick Jr. premiered a new series, The Backyardigans, received a rebrand featuring a new host, Piper O'Possum, a new slogan: "Love to Play".
Nick Jr.'s female announcer was replaced with Chris Phillips. Until March 2006, NickJr.com made an on-screen bug on television to match up with the Nick.com on-screen bug. On September 10, 2007, Nick Jr. received yet another rebrand. The block's bumpers encouraged preschoolers to "Play With Us" and featured the Nick Jr. logo in the form of two stuffed animals animated in stop-motion. This marks the first time that the Nick Jr. block had no host since 1994. Nick Jr. stopped airing interstitial series and increased the amount of commercials it aired. Starting in the spring of 2008, the block began at 8:30 am. On January 30, 2009, the original block ended its run, with Yo Gabba Gabba! Being the last show to air on the block. On February 2, 2009, the original Nick Jr. block was re-branded as Nick Play Date.
Googly eyes, or jiggly eyes, are small plastic craft supplies used to imitate eyeballs. Googly eyes traditionally are composed of a white plastic or card backing covered by a clear, hard-plastic shell, encapsulating a black plastic disk; the combination of a black circle over a white disk mimics the appearance of the sclera and pupil of the eye to humorous effect. The inner black disk is allowed to move within the larger clear plastic shell, which makes the eyes appear to move when the googly eyes are tilted or shaken; the plastic shells come in a variety of sizes ranging from 3⁄16 inch to over 24 inches diameter. The inner disks come in a variety of colors including pink, yellow and green. Googly eyes are used for a variety of arts and crafts projects including pipe cleaner farm animals, silly sock puppets, mischievous pranks, other creations. Googly eyes may be attached to inanimate objects in order to give the objects a "silly" or "cute" appearance; this use personifies the objects for a humorous effect.
The term googly eyes has been used to refer to a type of early 20th century doll. Researchers have suggested that the term originated from the German "Guck Augen" meaning eyes ogling to one side.
