There's a Disneyland sweetheart you may never have heard of, though if you were hoping to meet him, you’re out of luck—PUSH the Talking Trash Can retired two years ago. PUSH, a radio-controlled robot, was a highly beloved garbage receptacle. Over the course of his 19 years of service at the theme park, PUSH drew many fans and admirers at home in California, as well as in Florida, Hong Kong, Paris, and Tokyo. The controller’s words went through a voice processor to come out with a quirky robotic tenor, enabling PUSH to tease and flirt with guests, its preference in humans more indicative of the gender of the operator than anything else. Invented by Daniel Deutsch (who owns multiple patents for gadgets such as an ultraviolet illuminated fluorescent drinking vessel ),.

Haus Der Kulturen Der Welt is an art gallery and performance space that stands on the banks of the Spree near the Reichstag in Central Berlin. Paid for by the Benjamin Franklin Foundation and designed by the architect Hugh Stubbins, the foundations for the HKW were laid in on October 3rd 1956. It was described as "America's gift to the world" or, as its curving roof rose over the... Or, as some critiqued it, a physical manifestation of American cultural imperialism in the ideological battle against Communism, the soft power reinforcement to the tanks stationed near the wall in West Berlin. Someone tells me that this event inspired Einsturzende Neubauten (their name 'collapsing new buildings was itself a satire on West Berlin's shoddy post war architecture) to call their debut album Kollaps.

Appreciations for some of the legendary writers, musicians, actors and artists that the world lost in 2017

His death on July 27 at age 73, from complications of amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, comes as a particular shock, not only because of his prolific output — he wrote nearly 50 plays, 30 of them produced before he was 30 — but also because his etched-in-granite profile was so recognizable.
