Submitted by: Jay Nault

Edward Scissorhands tickets are a chance to see a cult film classic live and in-person, and the play is garnering the same positive reviews as the original film. The story is unique in that it s a modern-day fairy tale and fable, although the vibe given off by the production is one of a classic and timeless fantasy-driven story from a time long-past. Below is a closer look at the play and what you can expect with when you secure Edward Scissorhands tickets.

About the Story

The story of Edward Scissorhands is one of trial, turbulence, mystery and acceptance. The main character, Edward, was created by an eccentric inventor who died before he finished building Edward. As a result, Edward is left with two sets of scissors for hands, and given that his creator has passed on, Edward is forced to make his own way in the world.

Edward winds up in an almost mystical type of suburbia, as the tone in the play is much like the original movie, in that it s dark and very gothic in nature, which belies the perfect suburban life that surrounds the mood. Edward is initially met with a lot of resistance from the townspeople, as most of them are afraid of this freak.

As it turns out, Edward is actually a sensitive, caring and gentle creature, and he wins the favor of a few people when they discover that he s got a very kind heart. The rest of the story develops the characters and shows how Edward manages, by simply being himself, to win the townsfolk over after a series of potentially diabolical conflicts.

The message delivered is a timeless theme – never judge a book by its cover, and give everyone a chance, as you never know where you may find friendship and a beautiful soul. It s a touching and sometimes-humorous play, and one that the whole family can appreciate.

Production History

The original story was written by Tim Burton and Caroline Thompson, and was released in movie theaters in 1990. The movie was highly-successful, and the original story is loosely-based on previous works that include Frankenstein, Beauty and the Beast and The Phantom of the Opera, among others.

The current production is headed by Matthew Bourne, and he is well-known in theater circles for his works with such productions as Swan Lake and the Nutcracker. The play manages to capture the same eerie, surreal feel as the film, and Bourne is a master at setting the tone early for the audience.

Whether you saw the original movie or not, Edward Scissorhands tickets will treat the whole family to a night and a story to remember.

Sunday, September 7, 2014 

Plans for a radio dramatisation of the novel Good Omens, co-written by prominent UK fantasy authors Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett, were confirmed on Friday by BBC Radio 4.

Published in 1990, Good Omens tells the story of the impending Apocalypse, and the efforts of one angel and one demon to save the world.

Neil Gaiman has previously had one of his books, Neverwhere, adapted for radio. The director of that adaptation, Dirk Maggs, is also working on Good Omens.

Terry Pratchett is well known for his Discworld novels, of which the first one, Colour of Magic, was published in 1983.

Recording for what would be the first ever dramatisation of the cult-classic began on Friday, with broadcast dates unconfirmed but said to be in December. The show is expected to broadcast over five days throughout the week and an hour-long finale on the Saturday.

Mark Heap and Peter Serafinowicz have been cast in the lead roles, with other actors on the cast list including Colin Morgan, Josie Lawrence and Clive Russell. Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett are also expected to make cameo appearances.

Replacing Your Car Engine

Posted on 22nd March 2016 by in Construction

Submitted by: Perry Gates

With most new cars costing a small fortune average sales prices are now above $24,000 for the typical midsize family sedan, according to AAA keeping an older car running for as long as possible gets more and more appealing.

It s not uncommon to get 150,000 miles out of a car these days and the body will last almost forever, thanks to the superb corrosion protection methods adopted by most automakers.

But when the engine begins to smoke badly or just plain dies, does it make sense to replace it with a new one? Sometimes, but you should be aware that a new engine tied to old accessories and a worn transmission does not mean you ve got a car that s “as good as new.”

One major type of engine failure is pattern failure. For instance, if the failure scenario was not initiated by any outside action, but might indicate a potential “pattern failure” in other similarly equipped vehicles, it might be wise to pursue some type of warranty remedy. Checking with the dealership service department and also on the Internet for information of such a failure, may give you just the leverage you need to convince the manufacturer to foot the bill, even if the vehicle is a bit beyond the warranty period.

Before considering replacing your car engine you should find out the exact problem in the engine and see if the starter, transmission or other parts need replacement. If the problem is not caused by a non-engine mechanical problem, then you will need to replace the engine.

New castings of some engines are sometimes produced by independent companies. These blocks commonly replace rare or popular designs for aftermarket rebuilding, especially when the original is no longer produced. They are sometimes available in aluminum instead of original iron, or in stronger alloys. Often they imitate the larger available displacements that were produced in small numbers or allow for displacements never available.

If you can do it yourself then buy or rent the right tools and equipment for the job. You will first need to buy a factory made engine, or a remanufactured engine, that is appropriate for your car to replace the one that no longer works. If you don’t have all of the tools that you need, then you can either buy them or rent them from a local car center. One of the pieces of equipment that you will probably want to rent is an engine hoist and stand.

If you need to replace an engine, then you’ll have to carefully consider if you want to make that kind of investment. You may want to research the reliability of the year, make and model of your specific car to see if it’s likely to have any other problems that would result in costly repairs.

If your car is in good condition overall, then it may make sense to keep it since the engine repair — even though it is the most expensive repair you are likely to make — would still be cheaper than buying a new car.

At least 107 killed in Mecca crane collapse

Posted on 22nd March 2016 by in Uncategorized

Saturday, September 12, 2015 

A storm yesterday caused a crane to fall into Mecca’s Grand Mosque, killing 107 or more and wounding 238, according to Saudi Arabia’s Civil Defense Authority.

Civil Defense Authority director General Suleiman al-Amr, in remarks to al-Ikhbariya television, said “All those who were wounded and the dead have been taken to hospital. There are no casualties left at the location”.

The accident, which occurred yesterday afternoon, was caused by strong winds and heavy rain that led the crane to fall. Photos released of the scene showed numerous bloodied bodies and various scattered debris.

The accident occurred at a time when the mosque was relatively uncrowded. “Had it happened an hour later it would have been much worse,” Khaled Al-Maeena, editor at large at the Saudi Gazette, said. “Had it happened five hours earlier or four hours earlier, I think the death toll would have been more than a thousand.”

The crane accident comes just ten days before the beginning of the Hajj, the annual pilgrimage to Mecca, Islam’s holiest site. As undergoing a pilgrimage to Mecca is a mandatory religious duty for all Muslims who physically and financially can, millions of pilgrims arrive in Mecca each year for the Hajj. Construction was underway at the mosque in order to enlarge the mosque and improve crowd control, which has been a recurring problem during Mecca’s pilgrimages.

Sunday, September 13, 2009 

Six construction workers at Hong Kong’s International Commerce Centre (ICC) were killed on Sunday when they fell seventeen stories down a lift shaft.

The workers were standing on a platform on the 27th floor of the building when it collapsed.

The ICC’s building developers from Sun Hung Kail Properties, Ltd., said they would pay the families of the victims at least HK$1 million (US$129,000) apiece and pay for funeral costs. Donald Tsang, the city’s CEO, said a full investigation into the incident would be launched.

The International Commerce Centre, when completed, is to be the fourth tallest building in the world, with 118 stories. It is scheduled to open in 2010.

Reports: Design flaw caused Minneapolis, Minnesota bridge to collapse

Posted on 22nd March 2016 by in Uncategorized

Thursday, August 9, 2007 

Investigators say that flaws in the design of the Interstate 35W bridge in Minneapolis, Minnesota may have caused it to collapse and that the design flaw is not “unique” to the Minneapolis bridge.

According to an ongoing investigation by the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), the flaw was found in the steel plates connected to girders, which are large support beams used in construction and connect the plates together. It is reported that extra stress from construction equipment might have caused the plates to separate, causing the bridge to collapse.

The flaw has not yet been confirmed to be the source of the disaster, and the NTSB says that the investigation could take several months to fully be completed.

At least six people were killed and at least eight are missing, whilst over 100 are injured after the bridge collapsed on August 1.
