The North By Northwest Scene That Sparked A Government Controversy

The climactic set piece in Alfred Hitchcock's classic spy thriller "North by Northwest" sees Cary Grant and Eva Marie Saint being chased down the side of Mount Rushmore, the national memorial with the faces of four U.S. presidents carved into a mountainside in South Dakota. Hitchcock originally wanted to film the chase scene on the real Mount Rushmore, with "a man hanging onto [Abraham] Lincoln's eyebrows." As it is, he used mockups (full-size models) of the monument to film the scene, but he al...

Oasis

There is a popular restaurant built in 1982 called Oasis. It sits high above Lake Austin and is an institution as they say and calls itself the “Sunset Capital of Texas”. There are four terraces and in the summer it is packed with happy, sun loving people. I, however, went on a cold, chilly January day and had to sit inside. The menu is exactly the same as the last time I ate there years ago. I’ll have to visit in the Summer. The entrance.. This was outside. I’m sure it’s busy in th...

Oiselle has remained committed to premium quality athletic...

Historic

I was in Austin, Texas where I once lived and decided to spend one night at the historic and very beautiful Driskill Hotel. It was built after the civil war in 1886 by Mr. Driskill who made his money by selling beef to those fighting the war. Later, he would loose his money when all of his cattle died during a severe winter storm and have to sell the hotel. It went through several owners up to now where it is owned by the Hyatt Hotel Company. It is said to be very haunted but nothing visited me...

British Car Leasing Company Creates 'Apple Car' 3D Render Based on Patents

British vehicle leasing company Vanarama has taken a stab at imagining what the first Apple Car could look like, taking inspiration from iPhones, MacBooks, and other Apple products, and combining them with real Apple patents to come up with a 3D concept render that can be explored inside and out. Given that Apple remains tight-lipped about its electric self-driving car plans, the concept is of course entirely speculative, but Vanarama says it has based the coupe SUV model on "genuine patents...
