I grew up in New York (in one of these images, I can literally see the house I used to live in), but never went to watch the ball drop. Always got a better view on the TV.
As narrated by Jean Luc Picard.
Here’s a refresher.
2017 was worse.
Saw this in a friend’s Facebook post:
The actress is Eleanor Powell, and the scene is from the 1941 musical comedy “Lady Be Good.” Here’s the key to the scene (From YouTube(:
Eleanor Powell trained this dog herself and this scene was shot in her own living room because it was where the dog was used to do all the tricks.
If she trained the dog herself, it sounds like it was her dog. And if this was done in her living room, she must have been rich, because that’s an impressive dance space..
Also known as the origins of fake news.
Who was more psychotic? The kid or the killer.
Gee, will she survive the fall?
This from WSMH19 in California:
Police, SWAT, and FBI are surrounding Nakatomi Plaza at this hour after a police officer was reportedly fired upon. The police officer had stopped by the building after receiving what was initially reported as a false fire alarm on the 32nd floor.
A short time later in what was at the time believed to be a prank, a call was received by local police. The caller speaking on a restricted police band had stated that terrorist had taken over the building and had killed a hostage.
This prompted sending an officer for further investigation. The officer initially had radioed that the situation was cleared, but then immediately reported shots fired. Though unconfirmed at this time, reports say that the officer also reported that a body was thrown from an upper floor window.
Details concerning who actually may be in the building is sketchy at this time, a Nakatomi Corporation Christmas office party/ building construction party was reportedly taking place on the 30th floor. We attempted to contact Nakatomi Corporation executive Joseph Takagi for comment but have thus far been unsuccessful.
Sources tell us that a man named Hans Gruber has radioed the police with a set of demands. Again, details are unconfirmed at the time. Here is the unverified transcription of the radioed demands from Mr. Gruber:
“The following people are to be released from their captors. In Northern Ireland, the seven members of the New Provo Front. In Canada, the five imprisoned leaders of Liberte de Quebec. In Sri Lanka, the nine members of the Asian Dawn movement.”
Here’s a closed circuit image of Gruber:And word is, someone who thinks he’s a cowboy is running through the building, because police have picked up this interchange through the building’s security system.
Here you go. Eight hours of a burning Yule log accompanied by Christmas carols on guitar:
