  • MTV Classic debuts August 1 with top shows from the 90s

    <p>It's 2016, which means the 90s are officially a 'classic' era. (Just take Detroit's newest 'throwback' station 105.1 for example.) And since youthful millennials can't get enough of high-waisted shorts and neon, the media overlords at Viacom have made the wise decision to switch VH1 Classic which primarily broadcast a variety of mainstream rock/adult hits (whatever that means) mix of videos and concerts from the 70s through the mid-1990s (before they went to shit) to MTV Classic.</p>

  • Safe House bar, restaurant creator Dave Baldwin dies (WI)

    Milwaukee Journal Sentinel ^ | 12-21-15 | Mary spicuzza
    Hail to the Chief. Dave Baldwin, the mastermind behind Milwaukee's legendary spy-themed bar and restaurant the Safe House, died Sunday, his wife, Shauna Singh Baldwin, said. Baldwin had just retired this summer after nearly 50 years devoted to celebrating the spy craft. In June, at age 84, he sold the Safe House to the Milwaukee-based Marcus Corp., but it remains true to his vision. With its entry tucked away on an alley off E. Wells St., the Safe House honors a type of 1960s Hollywood image of secret agents and spies. Passwords, secret doorways, spy memorabilia and a booth that...

    Our man on Woodward Avenue is shooting everything, and we'll be updating all weekend In past years, we've broken our Woodward Dream Cruise photos into chunks, showing you imports, Fords, Chevys, Mopars and just plain weird stuff in individual galleries. This year, we're covering the "world's largest one-day car show" a little differently: Call it the "shotgun approach." We'll put up as many huge galleries as our servers will handle, and you can sort through the insanity any way you like. As for captions that specifically identify each car ... maybe we'll get to that after the event. There's also...

    DETROIT, MI - Engines are roaring, cool cars are cruising and people from Ortonville to Sterling Heights and beyond are already lining Woodward Avenue for Saturday's 2015 Woodward Dream Cruise, billed as the world's largest one-day auto event. Some people are coming just for a few hours at a time to see the sights and sounds, others are even selling their own cruisers. Vinnie Garafalo has his 1967 Ford Galaxie convertible parked along Woodward near a gas station in Royal Oak, where he and a group of others known as the "No Name Car Club" are taking in the scene....

    The Mac Observer ^ | Jul 17th, 2015 | By Jeff Gamet
    Only 22 years after its last update Apple IIgs System 6.0.1 is getting a new update. The version 6.0.2 update added support for Apple's Ethernet for Appletalk card, fixed an HFS bug that could lead to file corruption, fixed PASCL.FST and DOS33.FST bugs, addressed bugs in TextEdit, Font Manager, and Window Manager, and the list goes on. What makes this so cool is that it's Apple IIgs fans who created the update. The IIgs was a great cross-over machine in its time because it also supported Apple IIe software and offered multimedia support you couldn't find on other computers....

    I dunno how many of ya'll caught Lynyrd Skynyrd (named after the core members' high school gymn teacher -Leonard Skinnard- back in Jacksonville, Florida) live on stage, but this Yankee here was a BIG fan back in the days... Still a major enthusiast for blues rock, i.e. Cream, early Humble Pie(with Peter Frampton), early 70s Status Quo, et. al, actually- and I really do think these guys are the ones who got me into it. But the plane crash that ended the band kept me from ever seeing the real Skynyrd. I did -though- have the opportunity to see the...

    Looks like the guy made it out of a '56 Ford convertible (or maybe a coupe), neat. I can already hear the "Why not Chevy" responses, but have you looked at the price of a Tri-Five lately? Nicely done with the diner theme, too: It don't get any more American than that! What would be funny is to drag it infor a smog test and then fire up the grill- hehMore news/views/humor at Reaganite Republican
