It’s not quite “basic,” which can describe someone who is a conformist or perhaps generic in their tastes, and it’s not quite “uncool.” It’s not embarrassing or even always negative. Cheugy (pronounced chew-gee) can be used, broadly, to describe someone who is out of date or trying too hard. And while a lot of cheugy things are associated with millennial women, the term can be applied to anyone of any gender and any age.
We believe in the pursuit of a condition in which everyone is capable to produce their own garments and gear and by so doing:
-Make low quality production lines redundant by supporting self production and local businesses.
-Establish a greater connection between users and their garments and gear encouraging them to repair and reuse when possible.
-Transmit the necessary knowledge to users to expand the item’s design to fit their needs.
-Cut down on the environmental impact of mass-production.
As a result of this establish a standard of informed control over the sourcing, production, use, disposal and re-entering of garments and gear in the cycle of production, on behalf of the users.
Sun Ra's Lanquidity was recorded overnight at Bob Bank’s Blank Tapes in 1978, following the Arkestra’s performance on Saturday Night Live.
According to a pamphlet in the Metro Archives, the L&C letters contained over a half-mile of neon tubing and could change between three colors.
In a Facebook post from the Metro Archives about the weather beacon, those with memories of the old sign chimed in on their experiences with the letters. Some commented on how the sign represents the changing times for the city and others offered ideas for why the weather beacon stopped operating.
Here’s how it worked: Red lights meant rain or snow were on the way, blue meant clear weather, and pink was for cloudy skies.
The lights would also ripple upward for rising temperatures and downward when temperatures were falling. The pamphlet explaining this process is stored in the Metro Archives. It’s included in a guide to the tower’s observation deck, which is now closed to the public.
The sign was controlled from the meteorology department at a nearby airfield. It was reset every four hours.
“Whenever the update to the weather report came in, the meteorologists could go over and flip the switches, (and) change the appearance of the sign in downtown,” Cummings said.
As a political term, Tory was an insult (derived from the Middle Irish word tóraidhe, modern Irish tóraí, meaning "outlaw", "robber", from the Irish word tóir, meaning "pursuit" since outlaws were "pursued men") that entered English politics during the Exclusion Bill crisis of 1678–1681.
Carnival is past millennia’s way of sensing the world as one great communal performance. This sense of the world, liberating one from fear, bringing the world maximally close to a person and bringing one person maximally close to another (everything is drawn into the zone of free familiar contact), with its joy at change and its joyful relativity, is opposed to that one-sided and gloomy official seriousness which is dogmatic and hostile to evolution and change, which seeks to absolutize a given condition of existence or a given social order. From precisely that sort of seriousness did the carnival sense of the world liberate man.

Israel Vibration are a reggae harmony group, originating from Kingston, Jamaica. Lascelle "Wiss" Bulgin, Albert "Apple Gabriel" Craig, and Cecil "Skelly" Spence all suffered from childhood polio, and went on to be a Jamaican roots reggae group in the 1970s. The trio initially met as children at a rehabilitation center.
