Slated to be the first release in a series of upcoming new mixes from Teddy Midnight, this new music highlights their connection with more traditional house music over the jamtronica sound of their live shows. As producer and bassist Sean Silva said of Tedward Midi Vol 1., “I know there are certain elements that can’t be replicated by live instrumentation, and we thought a mixtape would be appropriate to highlight a side of us closer to the Beatport crowd.” You can take a listen to Live For Live Music’s exclusive premiere of a brand-new track from Teddy Midnight called “Slow Down” below, which will give you a little taste of the soon-to-be-released Tedward Midi Vol. 1. As described by Sean Silva, “‘Slow Down’ is a funky, circusy, booty-shakin’ ode to the dance floor that celebrates the naughty part inside all of us.” Give it a listen for yourself.The mixtape will be available via the band’s SoundCloud on Friday, March 10th, and the band will be hosting a release party for Tedward Midi Vol. 1 on the following night, Saturday, March 11th, at BRYAC in Bridgeport, Connecticut. Additionally, Teddy Midnight will be touring with The Magic Beans in April as well as supporting Pink Talking Fish during a hometown show at the Brooklyn Bowl and playing various festivals throughout the summer.

Australian Spoons triumph for Northern pair

first_img Golfing partners Sandra Taylor and Jean Lamb scored a success for the North when they won the national final of the Australian Spoons competition at Wilmslow, Cheshire.The pair, from Rudding Park Golf Club in Yorkshire, beat partnerships representing the other five England Golf regions. They scored 32 points to take the honours in the stableford foursomes competition for players with handicaps of 15 and over.It’s their biggest golfing success and Jean, who plays off 18, described it as “exciting.” Sandra, a 15-handicapper, added: “We really didn’t expect to win and when we realised that we had it was a bit overwhelming. We couldn’t take it in!“It’s been a thoroughly enjoyable experience and I’d recommend anyone to take part in the Australian Spoons. We’ve been extremely well looked after.”The finalists are the overnight guests of England Golf and, after the competition, they had tea with past President Sue Johnson.The Rudding Park pair played to their handicaps on the front nine but found the last few holes of the inward half challenging. However their score was two points ahead of their closest challengers.Sandra took up golf only in 2010, when she retired from the police force. “I’ve always been sports mad. When I gave up work a friend invited me to Rudding Park, just for a go, and I loved it so I joined,” she said. She was ladies’ captain last year. Jean has played for almost 10 years and together the pair have enjoyed local successes.The finalists were:Sandra Taylor and Jean Lamb of Rudding Park, Yorkshire, representing the NorthKerry Variava and Joanne Smith of Charnwood Forest, Leicestershire, representing  Midlands NorthElaine Osbourne and Tricia Ainsbury of Burstead, Essex, representing the EastJean Rockall and Jayne Begley of Saunton, Devon, representing the South WestLynn Lambert and Victoria Westgarth of Windlesham, Surrey, representing the SouthMary Evans and Bryony Travill of Brampton Heath, Northamptonshire, representing  Midlands SouthCaption: Sandra (left) and Jean (right) are pictured with England Golf past President Sue Johnson (image © Leaderboard Photography). 20 Sep 2013 Australian Spoons triumph for Northern pair last_img read more

Steelers prep for post-lockout transition period

first_imgPITTSBURGH (AP)—New Steelers secondary coach Carnell Lake walked through the team’s practice facility on Pittsburgh’s South Side late Monday afternoon with a purpose.“Now,” Lake said as he headed up the stairs to the coaches’ offices, “the real work begins.”Hours after the NFL’s four-and-a-half-month lockout was officially lifted, things weren’t quite back to normal yet at Steelers headquarters. But they were at least on the way to getting there.By Tuesday morning, players were permitted to report to the team facility for voluntary workouts. And like the other 31 teams, the Steelers were to open negotiations with unsigned players.Still, expect some confusion and chaos during what will be a frenzied week. Even Steelers President Art Rooney II—a member of the owners’ labor committee—was hazy on the terms of the transition period for the new collective bargaining agreement and its compacted schedule.The Steelers will report to St. Vincent College in Latrobe by 3 p.m. Thursday and will perform a conditioning drill. Their first official practice is Friday.“We only received this memo a short time ago, so I want to put a little caveat out there: I could be wrong,” Rooney said midway through a late-afternoon Monday press conference. “I am going to give the best information I can give you.”It became clear Rooney, like everyone else, still was learning the details of the free-agency period, signing deadlines, reporting dates and training camp practices that traditionally take place over the course of months, but is compressed into mere days in this most unusual of offseasons.“It’s fair to say we’re in uncharted territory,” Rooney said. “We’ve never had to start up a league year like this. It will be different, but every team is in the same boat. Once we get to September, I know that coach (Mike) Tomlin feels like we’ll be prepared to play, and that’s got to be our mindset: Be ready to play when the season kicks off.”Tomlin said back in March that the lockout could, in fact, be an advantage to the Steelers. The team has a veteran roster already set in its ways that, the theory goes, has less to gain from offseason workouts than a younger, less-experienced team.Also, Tomlin reasoned, the Steelers annually undergo little turnover relative to many other teams. Plus, there was less wear-and-tear this summer on the team’s older bodies.“Having a veteran team can be an advantage in a lot of different circumstances,” Rooney said. “But it is hard to predict. It is up to our players and coaches to make sure that is an advantage and prepare in a way to take advantage of that if that occurs.”Pittsburgh has 14 unrestricted free agents and two restricted free agents, but only one of those players (cornerback Ike Taylor) started on offense or defense last season. Taylor is the only Steelers free agent expected to garner heavy attention on the open market, though other contributors of last season’s AFC-champion team are free agents.Also, the Steelers are currently over the salary cap of $120 million, and Rooney said the team will be talking with some its players about restructuring their contracts to provide cap relief this season.“Being prepared to get under the cap is something we’ve been through before. The challenge this time around is to handle that business in such a short period of time,” Rooney said. “But our guys are back there right now, trying to work on how we will get there and trying to piece together the rosters.”The players association successfully negotiated the elimination of two-a-day practices and reduced practice workloads both in terms of frequency and in their intensity.Rooney said he had “mixed feelings” about such things, but that it was an issue the owners gave on.“It’s probably fair to say that if it were up to us, we probably would have had a little different approach to some of the practice rules,” Rooney said.Although Rooney said he had not yet spoken to commissioner Roger Goodell about any of the Steelers recent potential violations of the league’s personal-conduct policy, he did say that he expected to hear from Goodell soon.Earlier this month, receiver Hines Ward was arrested on a drunken driving charge, and linebacker James Harrison was quoted in Men’s Journal magazine ripping Goodell in scathing fashion.“These things will be under review by the commissioner’s office in due time,” he said, “and we will be communicating about these things.”last_img read more

Face Up Architectural Record

first_imgThe issue Silverman refers to is Architectural Record’s annual Houses issue. AR’s main focus is commercial buildings. She says AR (which won the 2012 Grand Neal Award from American Business Media) does not often shoot its own covers, and this particular image sparked internal debate whether to include it or not, due to the “rougher” composition of the submitted photo.Silverman says the positives of the shot eventually outweighed the weaker points, “This photo had a lot going for it in terms of the starkness of the building—the crisp black and white of it with the hit of that magenta furniture, in opposition to the rough un-manicured California hillside. The Hollywood sign peeking out at the edge didn’t hurt, either.”The cover font, which Silverman describes as “bland industrial,” is used in-book as well. “As for headline placement, I wanted to both intensify the awkward cut-off composition, and also push it out of the way of the content of the photo,” she says. DESIGNER’S COMMENTS“What the crop on the photo of this modern house has going for it is the dynamic interplay of those positive/negative, nature/building shapes and bringing the eye right inside the oversized patio door. What the crop has working against it is the orphaned bit of the Hollywood sign. This awkward crop seems sloppy and also a bit forced—let the architecture stand on its own and let a caption (small on the cover or to keep it clean on the table of contents) give us the location. I wonder about the styling choice of what looks like a closed shade on the upper floor window, seems a bit contrived and dulls the glass. Everything else is pitch perfect.” Dave McKenna, art director, 5280 Magazine “The hoary old joke at art school is that good art should not match the couch. So I suppose we can award irony points to this cover. Intentional, I hope. Please? In the long tradition of nearly unreadable AR cover headlines, this one is at least clear of clutter or buzzing moiré background texture, and nicely under control. So no complaints there. But a cover image for houses of the year might want to be a stunning, or crazily, boldly out there piece of architecture, no? I’m afraid that the only thing I’ll remember from this cover is pink and black—poodle skirts, Elvis, Grease. The good thing is, I will remember it.”John Kehe, design director, Christian Science Monitor Have a unique “cover” story? Contact associate editor Stefanie Botelho at [email protected]center_img MAGSTATSIssue: April 2012Frequency: MonthlyCirculation: about 90,000Launched: 1891Publisher: Mcgraw-HillGroup Design Director:Francesca Messina Art Director: Helene SilvermanEditor-in-Chief: Cathleen McGuigan While there may be a few exceptions, magenta is not a color typically seen on the cover of a b-to-b magazine. However, Architectural Record’s April issue takes full advantage of the unexpected hue. “Since we are not mainly a newsstand publication, we don’t need cover lines that sell the magazines,” says art director Helene Silverman. “The one cover line is all we need on this special issue, and right away I thought it would be a fun counter-intuitive move to echo the magenta, rather than let it remain the only bold color hit.”last_img read more
