I always like scrolling through the articles for each day, like 'March 14', to see famous events, births, deaths. Anyway, it appears that this day back in 1985 was big for giving birth to future female porn stars. These are all the famous birthdays from March 14, 1985:
1985 – Eva Angelina, American pornographic actress 1985 – Idaira, Spanish singer 1985 – Brianna Love, American pornographic actress 1985 – Ariel Rebel, Canadian pornographic actress

Mark Twain is a notoriously harsh critic of his contemporaries. His style of critical analysis is humorous, but altogether not too different from any sort of stand-up comedy burns we see today.

Future Hollywood producer Armand Deutsch later claimed he might have been the intended victim of Loeb or Leopold. But on the day of the murder, as the 11-year-old grandson of Julius Rosenwald, he was picked up by his family's chauffeur after school because he had a prior dental appointment. Deutsch died aged 92 on August 13, 2005.

Internet Gambling Ban In September 2006, working with Arizona Senator Jon Kyl, Frist was a major Senate supporter of H.R. 4411 - The Unlawful Internet Gambling and Enforcement Act. This amendment to the Safe Port Act was passed at midnight the day Congress adjourned before the 2006 elections. Prior to it being added to the bill, the gambling provisions had not been debated by any Congressional committee. Just another example of a Senator trying to bypass the political process in favor of a company or foundation that would line his/her pockets. A further degredation of the United States political system.

During the recording of the Gorillaz album Plastic Beach, Humperdinck was asked by Damon Albarn to perform on a selection. However, after listening to the proposed selection, his manager declined the offer without Humperdinck knowing. Humperdinck later stated in an interview that his manager declining the collaboration offer was: "the most grievous sin ever committed".

As is often the case with location filming, Bob's commute journey was geographically inconsistent. For example, he leaves his office building by heading west toward Michigan Avenue, only to then be seen from below walking east from Michigan Avenue, before strolling south over the Michigan Avenue bridge. Bob boards a pair of Chicago Transit Authority 6001-6200 class PCC rapid transit cars at a Loop Elevated station, with the train moving from left to right on screen. The next shot shows Bob sitting down and removing his hat on a 2000-class car, moving from right to left. After that is seen a long shot of a pair of 6000-class cars crossing the Wells Street bridge northbound (screen left to right). Finally, Bob leaves the train at Isabella station (now demolished) on the Evanston line—several miles from his condo building in the Edgewater neighborhood of Chicago.

It also has the distinctive taste of horehound."Yukon Jack is a taste born of hoary nights, when lonely men struggled to keep their fires lit and cabins warm.

Since epidemics are a problem, the wardens try to fill cells entirely with people with AIDS, or with tuberculosis; however, this avails little, since almost every inmate is a user, and there is at most one needle per cell. Moreover, inmates are brought to the tribunal in overcrowded police vans, so that a healthy inmate may breathe the same air of one with tuberculosis. The gasoline spared in this way is sold on the black market. The Butyrka has a peculiar slang: the wardens are called "manti", the inmates "patzani", to take drugs is "smazatsia", i. e., to oil oneself. The word khuy is used profusely. On a lighter note, television has been allowed since 1995.

The race was over 12 miles between Newport and Bedwas. Guto's effort looked in vain as Prince took an early lead, but a devastating uphill sprint from Guto saw him surge past Prince near the end and beat his challenger, taking the prize and the honour of being named the fastest man of his time. But the race took a fatal toll on Guto: it is reputed that during the post-race celebrations he collapsed and died in his lover's arms after an over vigorous congratulatory back-slap.

"Peter Gutteridge (born circa 1961) is a Dunedin, New Zealand, musician. Best known as a singer/songwriter/guitarist, he was originally a bassist, playing in several bands during the 1980s. Initially he was a member of The Clean, alongside Hamish and David Kilgour, whom Gutteridge had known from his schooldays.

Other bands in which Gutteridge has been involved have included the Alpaca Brothers and The Puddle.
Gutteridge released one solo album, Pure, on Xpressway Records in 1989.

Single releases "Basic Principles" and "Pulp Fiction" became jungle standards. The latter is originally called "Pulp Friction" as on Alex Reece's debut album So Far. Supposedly there are two different songs out - "Pulp Friction" and "Pulp Fiction". But even when the album version is used in a set it is incorrectly referred to as "Pulp Fiction".
― Autumn Almanac (Schlafsack), Friday, 27 April 2012 02:40 (1 year ago) Permalink
That's just incorrect, not unusual. Pulp Fiction was on Metalheadz and Goldie wouldn't release the master when Reece signed to a major, so he had to re-record it; the re-titling was a cute acknowledgement of this.

exceptional for actually slipping into first person at one point:
"Long Day" is the first single and second track from Matchbox Twenty's debut album Yourself or Someone Like You. The song starts off with just an acoustic guitar; then switches to electric guitars for most of the song. The vocal style is typical of Rob Thomas, a mixture of soft and soulful and impassioned and angst-filled. There is no instrumental introduction; Thomas begins singing immediately and if listened to carefully, he can be heard drawing a breath just before. The video clip (directed by Roger Pistole), like most of the band's material centers around Matchbox Twenty, but is punctuated by black and white shots from an old movie. Thomas has shorter hair than in the subsequent clips and is dressed in a suit and sunglasses. The cover of the single features a parody of a Diamond Matches box.

Kerli believes in reincarnation as well as other forms of life after death, fairies (which she has cited as a large element of her life), angels and demons, although once defining them as "reflections" of one's "inner light" and "inner darkness" respectively. However, besides thanking her guardian angels in the liner notes for Love Is Dead, she has also stated she feel angels are beings, as well as using "angel cards."
