King Kong vs Godzilla

The idea of pitting King Kong against
another monster came about in 1960,
when Willis O'Brien, the man behind the
stop-motion effects in the original film, had
developed his own sequel. Godzilla,
however, was not the monster that O'Brien
had wanted Kong to fight. Frankenstein
was the monster of choice for this new
movie idea, but there was all kinds of
hurdles that would have to be overcome if
the classic Universal horror icon was to be
King Kong Escapes

Miller to trap the monster and take him back to the mines. Of course Kong
escapes and heads for Japan.

The Rams Are Returning To Los Angeles!

Eric Dickerson was selected second overall in the 1983 NFL Draft by the
Los Angeles Rams. An immediate success, he established rookie records
for most rushing attempts (390), most rushing yards gained (1,808) and most
touchdowns rushing (18), including another two receiving touchdowns. His
efforts earned him All-Pro, Pro Bowl, Player of the Year and Rookie of the
Year honors.

In his second season, Dickerson continued his onslaught on the NFL record
book becoming a member of the 2000 rushing yards club. Twelve times in
1984 he gained more than 100 yards rushing, breaking the record of 100-
yard games in a season held by O.J. Simpson. His 2,105 total yards rushing
beat Simpson’s 1973 NFL season record of 2,003 yards. No one has since
rushed for more yards in a single NFL season. Dickerson's 5.6 yards per
carry led the Rams to a playoff berth in 1984.

Wendell Avery Tyler (born May 20, 1955) is a former professional
American football player who was selected by the Los Angeles Rams in the
3rd round of the 1977 NFL Draft. A 5'10", 198 lbs. running back from UCLA,
Tyler played in 10 NFL seasons from 1977 to 1986 for the Los Angeles
Rams and San Francisco 49ers.
There are many quotes attributing the meaning of music to life, some cliché, some moving, but all denoting how music can leave a
very deep imprint in the story of our lives. I have found this out for myself today as an icon of music, especially in my life, has
passed away. I am surprised as I write this just how much this man’s music has followed me, events and happenings in my life
brought back to life upon hearing those songs. I sat listening to the news feeling choked up, tears glistening in my eyes. I heard
the Eagles songs long before they began to mean something to me after all I was only 8 in 1971. The first album I loved of theirs
was ‘One of These Nights’ (1975). I was on a journey exploring music, I was just a young kid, but was finding that all those feelings
I had no words for could be found in music. By 1977 I was a freshman in high school and that 1976 album ‘Hotel California’
decidedly made me a fan for life. I would buy their older records one at a time as I had the money to, loving everything about them.
I remember sitting in my friend Tracy’s living room while she played ‘Desperado’ and I sang my heart out, sometimes crying at the
sadness of the song the way only a hormonal, lonely, misfit of a teenager can. I won’t tell you my life story, but as I think about all
the songs, I can see in my mind’s eye just how many punctuated pivotal times in my life. I sang, and cried, as my tormented soul
sought for answers, direction, all without realizing the writer of the songs knew of my pain, knew my aloneness, and the words and
music they wrote gave succor to the tragedy that was my life. I sadly never got to see the Eagles in person, probably the only of my
generation who never went to a concert……ever. I had hoped by the ‘Hell Freezes Over’ tour I would finally be able to go and was
waiting to buy tickets when Glenn Frey became ill and the concert was postponed. This of course is the illness that finally claimed
his life today. So I say goodnight and goodbye dear troubadour and will close with part of the official statement by the Eagles
band members, management staff, and his family:

"But first a kiss, one glass of wine / Just one more dance while there's still time / My one last wish: someday, you'll see /How hard I
tried and how much you meant to me."
