Famous Movie Car Stunts Part 3

August 21, 2013

The motion picture industry and the automobile industry were born alongside each other at the end of the 19th Century, forever intertwined and associated with one another to this day thanks in large part to the visceral thrills cars provide when used in movies. The last 45 years in particular are noteworthy as the complexity and danger of car stunts and chases has been upped considerably during this time. Advancements in technology has allowed cameras to be placed just about anywhere in or on a moving vehicle, which in turn opens up the possibilities for film makers and stunt choreographers to provide even higher levels of adrenaline inducing excitement and destruction on the screen. During this same period, stunt drivers and stuntmen have also gotten braver and more determined to continually re-set the bar on action sequences. Safety regulations and improved safety equipment have also allowed for even higher stakes antics to be recreated by the drivers and stuntmen, and computer effects have pushed the stuntmen, choreographers, and drivers into an altogether new realm of spectacular stunts - there is almost no limit to what can be recreated on screen. But it was not always this way.

Throughout the last 45 years there have been numerous stunt and car chase sequences that have, in hindsight, proven to be major benchmarks in the evolution of the art of auto based cinematic trickery. Consider that before the 90s there was no digital effects being used in car chases and stunts - everything that you see was physically re-created with real sets, cars and people. (1985), was directed by William Friedkin, most famous for The Exorcist. provided Friedkin with the opportunity to go for a different sort of thrill - the high speed, four wheeled kind. Secret Service agent (CSI's William Petersen) who is attempting to infiltrate and take down a counterfeit money ring (lead by Willem Dafoe). Friedkin was a stickler for detail, even going as far as consulting actual counterfeiters to add to the authenticity on screen. One other area of dazzling authenticity is the 10 minute car chase sequence in which Petersen drives on the wrong side of the freeway through Los Angeles at high speed while in pursuit of Willem Dafoe. According to Wikipedia, Friedkin was inspired to have the car travel the wrong side of the road after he'd fallen asleep at the wheel driving home from a wedding. When he awoke, he saw oncoming traffic and headlights coming towards him at top speed. The incident stuck with him for years and he collaborated with the film's stunt co-coordinator to come up with the sequence used in the film.

Adding to the intensity is the fact that Petersen and co-star John Pankow did much of the driving themselves - the stressed out look on Pankow's face is 100% real. The entire sequence took three weekends to complete on a closed part of the Terminal Island Freeway near Wilmington, California. In between takes, it normally took the crew four hours to set up each sequence. hit the screens; there was another noteworthy car chase and climax in a movie entitled Dirty Mary Crazy Larry (1974). Mention this movie to the initiated and it will immediately bring about breathless recollections about the films stunning and spectacular climax, and rightly so, up until then it was not a common sight in a movie to see a high speed collision between a train and a muscle car.

In fact, the crash sequence was so spectacular it was integrated into the credit sequence of the 1980s television series "The Fall Guy" (*a series about a stuntman, played by Lee Majors). While the collision sequence has been enjoyed by two generations of fans across two visual mediums, it is the chase sequence leading up to the collision with the train that is what most people remember of the film itself. The budget for the movie was very small, even for the early 70s, but director John Hough was able to create an action packed sequence due to some very skilled drivers and some effective editing. The late actor Vic Morrow, playing a sheriff, pursues then films three protagonists, who are driving a Chevy Impala, through a walnut grove using a Bell Jet Ranger Helicopter to do so. The resulting chase is a wonderful sequence with high speed driving and pursuit intercut masterfully by the film's editor. The protagonists eventually evade the sheriff and his aerial pursuit and assume their escape is imminent only to meet their end in the aforementioned train collision.

Circling The World On Two Wheels

July 29, 2013

Las Vegas has hosted the Interbike bicycle trade show for years, and every year thousands of cyclists descent on the city - some even bring bikes. For the first time in five years this year I decided to bring one with me so I didn't have to take cabs everywhere. I figure most years I spend somewhere near $200 getting around - it's $25 from the airport, $20 from any hotel to any other hotel on the strip, $30 to get to dinner the way the cabs go back and forth. So even though I was only staying a mile and a half from the convention center I made a point to ride as much as possible.

My first reaction to riding is Vegas was just how car centric the city is and how build around limo and taxi traffic. Even out on the east side in Henderson where I stayed the first two nights there were sections of roads without even sidewalks. Getting to the grocery store my first day in Vegas involved a 2 mile ride on a road aptly named Boulder Highway - even though it was only about a half mile from a real highway. Riding up the sidewalkless road I got stares as if I were riding a camel. Once I arrived at the grocery store the lack of any safe bike parking made the experience complete. I figured maybe it was just the store - so I rode all around the mini-mall looking for anything to lock my bike to. Nothing. No racks, no railing, nothing. So I guess that isn't exactly surprising given that the road leading to this shopping center (ok almost ALL shopping centers in Vegas) was four lanes wide.

None of the options offered any level of safety that would make cyclists feel good about riding and none of them are a real viable cycling solution. I realize that cyclists who ride into and out of the Strip or Downtown Vegas are definitely few and far between… but it's crazy to see just how car centric the city really is.I'm a pretty confident rider and riding The Strip at night was one of the craziest 2 miles of riding I've ever been on. Fun - yes. Dangerous - for sure. Unrideable - not quite.

Ironically this week was also when Andy Clarke from the League of American Bicyclists gave 11 new and 14 renewing Bicycle Friendly Communities awards.But out in Henderson some awesome separated bike lanes and paths are being build - so there are examples the city can look to.

I guess the one benefit of seeing this starting point is that future of cycling in Vegas can only get better… man it's definitely starting from the bottom. look forward to returning next year - I'll stay a bit away from the convention center again; and I'll bring my bike with me again. Hopefully there are small improvements I can report back.On the plus side Interbike always brings out some unique cycling with it… here's a couple videos from Cross Vegas and from the Circulus Race between J-Pow and TJ.

Car Keeps Dying And Needing Jump Starts

July 22, 2013

A couple of possibilities: battery is dying of old age (even though you SAY is is fairly new). Battery is not charging properly, either by the charging system not working as well as it should or the battery terminals are corroded. Corrosion puts resistance in the circuit so it goes not get a full charge. The shop should have been able to figure this out. Take it back. These people are incompetent if they can find the actual root cause. If the battery loses the charge as you say, either it can hold a charge due to old age, or it isn getting the charge it is supposed to get in the first place. The battery is failing, the charging system is failing or the connections are corroded, or any combination of the above.

First thing that comes to mind is that the battery is old and will not hold a charge overnight BUT the car stalling out is leading me to believe the alternator is not charging. Once running the alternator should be able to keep the electrical system from collapsing. You said you took it to the shop six days ago but you did not say what they did. That would be good info to help us. I going to think they did what was necessary for the stalling problem but did not look at the battery problem.

First off you need to have the battery charged and tested to find out if it is good, don just buy another one because someone on here says to. Next is the alternator. You can take it to one of the auto stores that check them but they are inclined to find something wrong with them and I see it time after time where the alternator is new and the battery still dies so your mechanic if trusted would be the best choice. If the alternator test is good there is still a chance it has a bad diode and when the engine is off it is pulling the battery current back through it. You may also have something like a trunk light or glove box that is stuck on and it kills the battery.

it could be the fuel system. its common for cars to get crap dragged into the fuel system. there could be a blockage either that or fuel is running back to your tank which means the car needs more suction than it has to pull the fuel to the front of the car. you can have fuel system cleaned out and none return hoses added to the system.

Lesbian Commitment And Engagement Rings

July 18, 2013

The saying goes: "love is blind" but when two people are in love, it is clear for most people to see. There comes a time in every relationship when the sentiment two people feel for each other needs more than words to touch the heart with the sincerity of their love and devotion. If you're at this stage in your relationship, you may be wondering: what is the best way to start the process of choosing a lesbian commitment or engagement ring?

In terms of commitment or engagement, jewelry has traditionally been used some of the lines that two people are ready to take the next step toward marriage. The union of marriage is a spiritual one fundamentally although society has created an institution based around the principle of marriage. Although love cannot be dictated, society has been slow to accept this reality. Nevertheless choosing your lesbian commitment or engagement ring can be an exciting adventure that culminates in a joyous reception when the ring is presented.

Ideally when you are choosing jewelry for the person that you love, you should first consider their personality or character: do they preferred classic, traditional styling or do their tastes lean more to modern and contemporary designs? Does your partner prefer delicate or bold designs? And when choosing the type of precious metal for their jewelry does their heart leap at the sight of lustrous gold or do their eyes sparkle at the sight of sterling silver?

Using these questions as your starting point in finding the lesbian commitment or engagement ring that your partner will treasure as a tangible expression of love you're sharing. There are many designers who are incorporating the symbols that have special significance and will display the pride of your sexual preference. There are also many jewelry artisans that will create your lesbian commitment or engagement ring from your own design.

A lesbian commitment or engagement ring is the perfect way to express your love and your sexual pride to your partner. By selecting a symbol that best represents your sexual attitude as a couple, your jewelry selection will strengthen your relationship confidence well as provide your partner with tangible evidence of your affection.

Whether you decide to have your lesbian commitment or engagement ring custom-designed or choose to purchase your jewelry from a standing collection, it is important to decide how much money you want to spend. The type of metal and gemstones are the major portion of the price you will pay. In addition, the quality of these materials comes in various grades: the finer the quality, the higher the price will be.

Of course, jewelry is best considered an investment that appreciates over time and in many cases, jewelry that is given as a symbol of love could very well be the most expensive purchase of a lifetime. The most important aspect of finding a commitment or engagement ring is to locate a reputable jeweler who will provide you with a certificate of authenticity whether you decide to purchase your jewelry ready-made or have it custom-designed for you.

All of the precious metals such as gold, sterling silver and platinum when used in jewelry are stamped with a mark to assure you of their quality. Likewise, precious gemstones such as; diamonds, emeralds, sapphires and rubies have gemological ratings for clarity and brilliance. Semiprecious gemstones such as; amethyst, topaz, carnelian and pink opals also carry gemological ratings, but are priced lower than precious gemstones.
