The Redress Design Award is using competition to shine a spotlight on sustainable fashion and make eco-friendly style something that all designers Competition has always been a great way to introduce new styles to the world and for new designers As urban areas grow around the world, housing seems to get farther and farther from nature, turning cities into concrete jungles lacking in greenery.
This is not only less than ideal for humans, but it is hard on the planet as well.

This makes Washington the seventh state to ban such contests with the aim to conserve wildlife. This makes Washington Federal and Florida state authorities are working together to complete the Tamiami Trail Next Steps Project, an important part of restoring the Everglades. At the same time, as I listen to this album, I can't find a compelling reason to recommend it.
It is really cool that the band is back together and touring on a provisional basis, and if they come around to my neck of the woods, I'm sure as hell gonna catch them. However, the songs don't really gain much, if anything, from the live setting or the years that the folks playing them have lived. The recording quality is great, with the band sounding clear and strong, but with this, there's a reduction in novelty, particularly since the crowd is barely audible. As the band closes the set with "Wolfpack," the track lingers for a few seconds to offer us yet another brief smattering of applause from the crowd that quickly disappears as the cut fades out.
But worst of all is Dave's vocals. I'm mostly familiar with his stuff with Dag Nasty both albums , but he was the draw for me with DYS' metal album: in addition to the archetypal youth crew shouting, Dave proved he could sing, and the modulations and styles he utilized on that album ran the gamut from borderline screaming to straight-up wailing. It was good stuff, and it was demonstrative of the pathos of those songs, completely reinforcing their lyrical content. Here, his voice pretty much stays in one range, which is slightly gruff singing, no matter what song he's handling.
Now, I don't think this is due to the band just going through the motions here. I do feel there's still heart, no matter how their politics have evolved I gotta say, unfortunately I know next to nothing about their political stances ; however, I know I recently read an interview Dave did on PMA Kid that I think proves he still cares a hell of a lot about doing right in the world and taking care of people.
So, I guess it's just age that's made the band sound borderline monotonous. Ultimately, it's rad that the band is together again, and it's great to hear these songs again, but they were fantastic the first time around, and the live album really doesn't add anything new, acting more like just an excuse to break out these tunes once more.
Thanks for reading all of this, and check out Bridge 9 if you're looking for merch from the band. Democratic presidential nominee Joe Biden tried a different approach when asked what would happen if President Trump refused to accept losing the Nov. Love is in the air! The Duggar family has been captivating viewers with their unique courtship process since — and have kept the tradition going strong ever since.
They later returned for a spin off, Counting On, which has aired for 11 seasons so far. Early in the courtship process, partners must have a chaperone present on their dates. For many of the Duggar daughters, their brothers have been by their sides when getting to know their suitors. The patriarch has also warned his children to be mindful of their text messages while courting, as he and Michelle are both looped into all of their chats. Bushee is one of the half-dozen or so people who run the town of Winhall, with a year-round population, before Covid, of He is a cranky dude.
Customize Page display settings Hide my news feed. Information cards Weather On. As he's quick to emphasize, these songs aren't leftovers or B-sides—they were recorded during the same sessions as the first Waterfall , and the original goal was to issue the second installment soon after the first, rather than bundle them into a bloated double-record.
Then life happened. Finally, after a handful of reinvigorating shows last August, the band's engines revved back up: They carried that camaraderie into sessions for their upcoming ninth full-length, recently tracked in Los Angeles and currently being mixed. But as James told Rolling Stone in , he's always viewed My Morning Jacket as a "circle of power"—and with the COVID pandemic derailing any potential shows, they decided to table the album until the cultural energy matched their band vibe.
Stuck in limbo during the early quarantine era, James discovered the atmospheric Waterfall II cut "Spinning My Wheels" on his phone during a walk. The lyrics felt eerily relevant "Hypnotized from doing the same old thing," he sings over Bo Koster's glistening keys. And suddenly the stars aligned: Why not free the whole album from its playlist purgatory? It's not about the me now. It's about the me I was back then. That always gives me some comfort. Did you guys ever have a sit-down and say, "OK, we're taking a long, extended break" between these two albums, or did life just sort of happen?
I just felt like I was getting mowed down by being on the road and touring. I just didn't know how to handle it, and I had to step away for awhile and figure out what was going on. There was kind of an indefinite pause [where] we didn't know when the pause would be over. But then last year we did these four shows at Red Rocks [in Colorado] and in New York at Forest Hills Stadium, and we had such a beautiful time playing together.
That got us really fired up and inspired to get back together again. Did you ever think these songs wouldn't come out? Did it just get to the point where years had past and it felt like you weren't interested in going back there? No, I always wanted to put it out. These songs definitely weren't B-sides or songs we didn't like. We had too many songs, and we felt that if we released them all it would have been way too much, even for our most diehard fans.
It's so much music to sift through that we thought it wouldn't have been a smart thing. I knew we'd release it someday. I always thought in the back of my mind that we'd release it like 20 years from now. There's always so much new music that I'm working on solo.
And when we got the Jacket cranked back up, we were so excited that we started working on new music. If this pandemic hadn't happened, who knows when it would have even released.
Twenty years from now? But it was cool because it helped us not feel so helpless. No matter what you do, the pandemic has made a lot of us feel helpless. As musicians, we can't tour. It's not in our control. It doesn't matter if you want to or not—we just can't. We felt kind of stalled and sad, but then I stumbled across The Waterfall II again and was like, "Wait, this could be a great time to release this music and help us feel that we can be active in this way with a new record, even though we can't tour.
When you have dozens of songs recorded, it's easy to just pick your 10 favorites at the time. But it's obvious that Waterfall II isn't a leftovers set. It's every bit as strong as the first album. So what guided your decision-making about which to put out the first time? Sequencing an album is always such an interesting process. So much of it is beyond your control. So much of it is the times shaping the sequence and your personal life shaping the sequence. We had all the songs done from both Waterfalls , and we were trying to decide, "Should we put them all out?
Some of them? What do we do? It's funny—it's almost like whittling a block of wood or something. I think every artist, no matter what medium, knows to stop when you get to the right thing. If you don't whittle enough, your sculpture won't be good. But if you whittle too much, you'll ruin it. I just try to listen to the music and watch what the songs say when they're next to each other. That's a fun part of sequencing: putting together a sequence and taking a drive with it.
You've talked recently about this project feeling like a time machine and how the Jim of sounds like a different person. Do you feel still as connected to the Waterfall material? There's definitely a soothing, searching quality to much of the second album, and it feels like the right time for it somehow. Do the songs resonate with you now as much as they did then? It resonates more! For some reason, I like it even more, which made me really happy when I listened to the songs again.
Sometimes it has the opposite reaction when I have to go back to listen to one of our records to learn a song again or whatever. For whatever reason, the Jim that heard this again during the pandemic, it really meant something to me. I liked it even more than I did back then. It's hard to put it into words, but there's a certain sadness in it that I was feeling back then.
I was dealing with the breakup of a relationship. There's a certain sadness but a comfort too. That idea of "I'll never love again. I'll never find peace again.
Will I ever work again? Will the world ever be the same? Will I ever be able to give my parents a hug again? But hopefully through music and friends and stuff, we can find that hope to keep going. It seems profound that you're listening back to that old Jim with the knowledge that his sadness is temporary. Maybe that's a hopeful message for us now: The struggle we're feeling right now is also temporary.
You told Rolling Stone back in that you originally had two songs scheduled for the first album but you wound up cutting them last-minute.
Do you remember which ones? Gosh, I don't. It's tough because I always want to cram them all on there because I want people to hear them. Then you start realizing, "If I cram two super heavy songs next to each other, they'll diminish the power.
If I have too many super sad songs, the whole record starts to feel sad. The Waterfall bonus track "I Can't Wait" has been lingering around for a decade before you recorded it—you guys played it three times back in and Does it often take you years to get a song right in the studio? That does happen from time to time.
It happens a lot in my songwriting where I'll have a song that I love but just cant finish for whatever reason. I know he closed his store Can anyone confirm my memories of a Jack In The Box restaurant?
There was also a Morrison's Cafeteria downtown as well. Also, when Apopka Vineland was only 2 lane Conroy went there too! Can we start a fund to save Gabriel's?
The Ronne's Deli reference reminded me of the "Mogambo Extravaganza" scoop ice cream sundae they had! Hadn't seen Beefy King fast food near Rollins or the night club attached to it on the thread. The Schlotzky's Original sandwich was so addicting. My heart broke when they closed up shop ;[ can't remember the name of the coliseum I saw Blue Cheer.
Maybe Winter Park Coliseum? Casa Lupita - A mexican place in Lk Howell Sq that was designed like an aztec temple on the inside, and had tile on the tables. So everytime you put your glass down, it sounded like you were slamming it. Had my first sopapilla here. Caution -it would probably get you a ride to the 33rd st. Cellular One - Everywhere. Cell Company. I did actually get to go in before it closed for good. They always had funny sayings on their sign out front. Chastain's restaurant - also on OBT.
John, Livingston Taylor. Genius Dr. Chubbies on Colonial Dr. Cherokee Station, a line dancing place on just past intersection, across from the now Kohl's plaza.
Chi-Chi's My mom worked at the one briefly between and before managing the Amigo's in Altamonte. Also, she worked at the Village Inn on in Casselberry. Mexican restaurant at the corner of Colonial and Maguire. A bit of an institution, before the wave of Mexican restaurants like Chevy's, Don Pablo's and Amigo's began springing up. After it closed in the late 80's or early 90's, the building sat there forever until it was finally mowed down for some crappy 'free phones' mini-mall.
Chili Bordello on Edgewater Drive - anything more than a mouthful was wasted. GREAT waitstaff and always something to catch your eye. Ok, here's one that's very obscure. On I Drive 1 or 2 blocks down from Bennigan's, a little bar behind the row of tourist shops and underneath, like a basement space.
Church Street Station! Huge theme park with rollercoasters and a "midway" not unlike one you'd find a a big county fair! I can't remember what else they had.
Wish they hadn't closed it to put in a sucker's version of American Idol! City of Cars dealership - may still be on W Colonial. Had a great juke box, and would serve the underage girls which worked out nicely for me at the time.
Club Juana - and However, this has stalled and all now believe it was just a way for the county and state to "get ride of" the adult entertainment industry in that area. Club Nowhere. Cruddy little bar on Bennett Rd, near the Roxy. More or less a punk bar. Green Day played here in or so, right before they got big. GG Allin played there once I heard, I went to see a band once, I remember some weird wrought iron central piece of art that formed their logo. Club Z - little hole in the wall gothy club in the strip where Club Phoenix is on Aloma, they used to be next door to each other - connected, I believe?
Colonial Plaza Rocking Chair Theater??? Not sure if they are still open or not. Colonial Plaza was great right before it met its doom -- so underpopulated that you could run several errands in one lunch hour, no problem. I used to call it the Ghost Mall. I saw Star Wars 1 here. Cool World, downtown hippie shop near Washington and Orange. Copper Penny on SOBT near Lancaster Cops would have to direct traffic through this narrow neighborhood street because of all the people wanting to see it.
Which is probably why they stopped doing it. I haven't heard that name in moons. Correction please WORJ was at I worked there after the call letters had changed to WHTQ. A Spanish restaurant in South Orlando. I miss it! Court of Flags, my Dad managed that place back in the 70's court of flags! I could also mention India 4 U, but no one really knew of that place. Cumberland Farms convenience stores Custard's Last Stand. I just can't pinpoint where this icecream parlor was located. Raver club.
Cypress Gardens Cypress Gardens- I wanted to be one of the girls in those huge dresses! This weird Puerto Rican guy with a high-pitched voice worked there slinging tapes. I had many private tours as a child. All the buildings were made of solid marble blocks and huge timbers, and the entire roof was copper.
The house was never totally completed or lived in. You remember things as being bigger when you are a child, but the main house was between 10, to 15, sq feet, as it dwarfed the boathouse Glenn Turner was arrested for running illegal pyramid schemes during its construction. Interestingly enough, the main road in the new gated community is called "Old Castle Dr. Dale, the link to that what-a-burger article is now defunct, do you remember why they said they were closing?
The What-a-burger on University Blvd near Goldenrod was always jam packed in the middle of the night. Hard to imagine they weren't doing good business. A red haired guy they called Uncle Russ hosted the show. A guest would reach into a hopper and pull out a piece of the phone book.
Using the "count" he would go to that name and try and call the number. If you answered and gave him the "count and the amount" you won the cash prize. Did anyone ever mention Knights Out Pub? I think it died as well. It's Static now and haven't been there. West side was on Orange Ave Did anyone mention Freddie's Steakhouse?
There was also a place where starbucks used to be in casselberry called break time, it was a place for young people to hang and play games, shoot pool listen to music ect.. I never went there or knew about it til I saw an article at my house.
There was also another toy store other than lionel playworld, they had a big screen set up in the front where they let kids watch movies. They also let kids ride on toys, if anyone remembers the name let me know.
It's not wierd but there used to be a bookm store where they would do crafts and story time. I loved it as a kid it was called book stop. There was also a place that I think closed recently in winter park where you could go play video games, I don't remember the name.
Did anyone mention Splendid China or that Laser Tag place that used to be downtown? The laser tag place was cool, but Splended China was just lame. Did anyone mention Steak and Ale? They had several locations throughout Central Florida. One thing that sticks out in my mind is the pewter colored salad plates being ice cold. Did anyone mention the Bowliseum or Coliseum, now the antique row off Orlando Ave south of Princeton street?
Did anyone mention the following Did anyone say Jungle Jim's?! It's been stomped out by the huge un-finished condos on Church Street I liked the drinks with plastic monkeys in them Did anyone say Negril Cove yet on W. Church Street?! I used to go there in the late 80's, if you were tall enough to see over the counter the Jamacan ladies would serve you an ice cold Red Stripe. They got shut down numerous times for underage serving and the bums outside would run a scam and charge parking when there was no charge.
Did Jeff mention Ole Ole? A recent extinction. Did Sambo's change its name to Denny's or did Denny's buy them out? I never was sure. Did Walt Disney "River Country" ever get mentioned?
Read in the Slantinel this week that it's walled off and overgrown with weeds. Did we previously talk about the coliseum? Orange Avenue between Lancaster and Sand Lake? Didn't they take down that big tree at big tree park? Dino's pizza was awesome. My Dad would take the family to the one on Oakridge Road. Dino's Pizza. Multiple locations Cool pizza joint to hang out with the gang, eat some damn good hand-tossed pizza, suck down Coca-Cola with your buds, and play some video games.
The location on Curry Ford also had a autographed, framed photo of Molly Hatchet. You could go in and see a model of the Magic Kingdom. They would book local bands from time to time, and whenever I drove by during those shows I'd see MEGA kids outside hanging around. Looked like a nightmare situation. Dmv at curryford and bumby I always thought it was cool as a kid.
All I remember is girls in neon color tiny bikins and my mom telling me I can't go to the pool because it was for adults.
Does anybody remeber a bar in Casselberry on that had a microphone so you could sing along with the juke box? Does anybody remember the greatest roast beef sandwich restaurant ever in Orlando called Beefy King on Colonial Ave? This place had real roast beef sandwiches not that crap they serve at Arbies today.
They where amazing! The old Steak N Shake was cool too. Another cool place was the Cinema Pub on O. Does anyone else find this thread slightly depressing? Does anyone have the link to the Sentinel article where this was mentioned? Does anyone remember Cafe Americana? It was kind of in that same vicinity on Americana Boulevard. Used to go there to dance alot when I was first in Orlando. Does anyone remember Duff's restaurants? Does anyone remember Nichol's Alley?
It was off Orange Ave on Amelia. Nickel beer on Wednesdays. It was turned into a country bar complete with an electronic bull ride and I believe it was one other type club before it closed for good. Man I miss club dancing!
Does anyone remember Spur gas station? It was on Princeton near I-4, where Chevron is now? It was one of the first places of that type, but I remember it being really disgusting. Saw "Mad Max" there, and the cheap beer and cockroaches added to the atmosphere. Does anyone remember The Erotic Donut on E. Does anyone remember the name of the downtown bar that is now Suite B?
It was located in the front of the mall where ruby Tuesday used to be You walk inside the mall and it was on the right next to chic fil et when they were in the mall.
I worked there at the shoe lodge What a great time I had Does anyone remember the tree house rooms at the Polynesian Disney, I think they are gone, was really jealous as a kid because my cousin got to stay in one when he was visiting us. Does anyone remember The Worst Bar? Off Kirkman and Major Blvd.
That was a great local spot back in the early to mid 80's. Does anyone remember when Kmart had their logo on almost everything they sold? I think I still have a pair of fold-able "Kmart" binoculars and camera film also, This was before everything was made in China I presume. I used to work for the engineering company that designed the East-west and I recall seeing a final report on the design of the east west - in they were envisioning the western beltway to be located in the Hiawassee Road area.
Now the building is a veterinary clinic. I used to work in that building before we were forced to move out to the airport area because they were using that floor for the now defunct China Coast restaurants. Rio Grande Ave. That was back in the early '80's. After the dealership went away, I think George Stuart office supplies had am outlet type store there. And they added other types of stores there that included a used book store,.
The original Dan's Restaurant used to be downtown on S. Orange Avenue right next to Steve's Southern Music. Used to be open in the 90's? Does Rennigers have old stuff? I'll check it out, thanks. Dog-gone it, and I was looking forward to ! Doing a history segment for a TV show - does anyone know or have family that knows where the drive in theaters were in the area?
Don't forget Mr. One memory I have is from the late 60's or very early 70's. I was sent to Orlando for a short day business course. It seems there was a lot of action in several bowling alley's with lounges. Drinking, dancing, music. I remember it seeming weird that the bowling alleys had such lively goings on.
Compared to the UK, though, it's probably the high rate of expansion and also Orlando is vastly more sprawling and suburban and built around cars and highways than, say, York.
Malls, mini-malls, etc. Built and torn down. You see less of that elsewhere. Ever notice that whole stretch of East Colonial from Herndon to Semoran is dying. Even the Denny's closed up!
And all the closed movie theaters, especially the dollar ones of yore. Don't remember seeing the type place at Oak Ridge and OBT but I did work at the Oak Ridge cleaners in a strip center on the corner just across the street maybe? This was so might have been gone by then. Don't remember Sweeney's, Farrells maybe? I do remember Orange Julius. There was also a place that served huge banana splits behind Colonial Mall, Ronnies I think. Colonial Mall seemed so boring compared to Fashion Square and Altamonte.
Does anyone remember what year Fashion Square opened? I missed out! He built a castle somewhere around Orlando. Up the road from there was The Big Apple - a two story department store. Later became the Big Bee. Building is still there. The East-West wiped out the Wig-Wam hotel.
Another landmark hotel was the Tour-a-tell motel just south of and 50 - with the neon sign of a guy jumping off a diving board in neon.Like East West, a great place to shop during vinyl's heyday with a knowledgeable staff and lots of cool limited edition stuff. Record Mart (Colonial Plaza Mall) Referencing one of the remarks earlier about "Theo's Kitchen", and due to the fact that the company I work for is buiIding them a sign know that a 'Theo's Kitchen' is being opened or at.
