"Cowboy" is a single by Kid Rock from his album Devil Without a Cause.
He describes the song as “Lynyrd Skynyrd meets Run-D.M.C..” The song is a genre all to itself fusing elements of rap, folk and southern rock. The song samples of the piano break of the Doors “L.A. Woman”. The song was originally rejected by Atlantic Records, after Kid Rock told them it was the best song he had written to that point.
“Farkas “Bulk” Bulkmeier (Paul Schrier) and Eugene “Skull” Skullovitch (Jason Narvy), from the very beginning, provided much of the comic relief in the series, usually through an over-the-top slapstick; they came with their own background music, which Jason Narvy has said was based on Skull’s laugh and “fat guy: tuba”. This was highlighted by their physical appearances: Bulk was heavyset and Skull was lean, similar in style to the comedy duo Laurel and Hardy. Bulk was the dominant member of the duo, and Skull would usually follow and attempt to emulate Bulk. Such is exemplified when Skull would repeat whatever Bulk had said, usually beginning with “yeah”.”—https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bulk_and_Skull
“Later in 1996 the group contributed to the Space Jam soundtrack, including the theme song. The theme song got frequent showing on MTV and charted fairly well, peaking at #37 on the Billboard Hot 100. Following the release of Barkley, Shut Up and Jam: Gaiden, the Space Jam theme has had an almost memetic surge in popularity on YouTube with numerous remixes and parodies.”—
“He displays an array of quirky mannerisms such as giving a ‘thumbs up’ when satisfied, sage-like sayings, and distinctive sense of humor along with his love for a good cherry pie (but, he also has a love for other pies or maybe all pies in general) and a “damn fine cup of coffee” (which he takes black).”—

“The recovery gets the boys recognized by the Park County PD, and they are made Junior Detectives. However, it’s not just honorary. Lieutenant Dawson, the department’s head lieutenant, flat-out hires them and then assigns them to bust a meth lab, something that should be reserved for actual detectives.”—en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lil’_Crime_Stoppers
“He mentally plans his fights using physics in a scientific calculating method. He knows how to break a man’s neck with one hand (Bad Luck and Trouble) and kill a villain with a single punch to the head (Running Blind and 61 Hours) or chest (Worth Dying For). In a fight against a 7 foot, 400 lb steroid-using thug (Persuader), Reacher was able to lift his opponent into the air and drop him on his head.”—http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jack_Reacher

“Heidegger, who took Kierkegaard’s philosophy further, comes even closer to describing the Punisher: ‘Since we can never hope to understand why we’re here, if there’s even anything to understand, the individual should choose a goal and pursue it wholeheartedly, despite the certainty of death and the meaninglessness of action.’ That’s sure the Punisher as I conceived him: a man who knows he’s going to die and who knows in the big picture his actions will count for nothing, but who pursues his course because this is what he has chosen to do.”—http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Punisher#Characterization
“As a consequence of the film, real bands and musicians started buying equipment whose knobs went up to 11, or even higher, with Eddie Van Halen reputedly being the first to do so. Marshall, the company that provided amplifiers for the film that the custom marked knobs were applied to, now sells amplifiers such as its JCM900 (first sold in 1990) whose knobs are marked from 0 to 20.
The BBC iPlayer has been created such that the volume goes up to 11.”—http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Up_to_eleven

“The weapon fire on the set was considered dangerous, which led the crew to build a new bulletproof plexiglas shield that could be bolted to the camera. This shield was useful particularly for one sequence in Hard Target where Van Damme empties a magazine of ammo into the camera. These camera dollies were nicknamed by the crew as “the Woo-Woo Choo-Choo”.”—http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hard_Target

A shooting prodigy, Twitch makes up for his small size with his ability to handle twin pistols with almost machine-like accuracy and efficiency.”—http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sam_and_Twitch

“Grandpa “Steely” Phil Shortman (voiced by Dan Castellaneta) - Arnold’s fun-loving, wise-cracking grandfather. He is 81 years-old, as of the episode “Grandpa’s Birthday”. Arnold often comes to him for advice, to where he often tells Arnold stories about his past experiences, although he’s had the tendency to stretch the truth. He is a World War II veteran, in which he claims to have single-handedly won the Battle of the Bulge by tricking a large troupe of Nazi soldiers into eating numerous cans of spoiled CHAM, thereby poisoning them and creating a hole in the enemy line for the American troops to break through. Arnold didn’t believe his story at first, but it was later proven when Phil showed him a small monument of him hidden in some bushes in a park in Washington D.C. Phil was also a master at Chinese checkers, which earned him the nickname “Steely Phil”.”—http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Hey_Arnold!_characters
“Like the majority of 19th-century Russian composers, Tchaikovsky possessed a penchant for melody. However, unlike Western themes, the ones that Russian composers wrote tended to be even more self-contained than those in Russian folk songs, even when they were written with broad, multi-phrase structures as Tchaikovsky tended to do. This, Brown says, was typical of Russian creativity, which functioned with a mindset of stasis and repetition rather than the one of progress and ongoing development that dominated Western creative thought.”—http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Pyotr_Ilyich_Tchaikovsky#Compositional_style

“One critic describes the chorus as representative of “the G-funk tableau” emphasizing cruising culture, consumption of depressants, and materialism. The last line is an example of chiasmus, the figure of speech in which two or more clauses are related to each other through a reversal of structures in order to make a larger point”—http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gin_and_Juice
In spoken form, the word may be used by street vendors to attract tourists or foreigners' attention. Because of the common misinterpretation by westerners that the word is insulting, the more cautious of the street vendors use the term Mister, which foreigners find more polite. Indonesians however, sometimes find the word humorous, as simply pointing from afar at a foreigner and saying "Look! A bule" might provoke laughter.
“Zack, Kelly, Slater, Screech, Leslie, and Alex’s dorm advisor was Mike Rogers (Bob Golic), an ex-football player. Although he looked and acted tough, he did have a softer side. In one episode, he took a liking to a laboratory mouse named X97, and also revealed some of his problems with women, including the fact that he never had a date in high school. One episode saw him – with Zack, Slater and Screech’s help – training to get back into football. Though he qualified, he chose to stay at college.

The Cuisine of North Dakota differs from average Midwestern cuisine in a number of ways. Though much of the Midwest has strong German influences, North Dakota also has strong influence from Norway as well as the many ethnic Germans from Russia who settled there.
As in the Midwest as a whole, meals are typically served in a smorgasbord format rather than in courses.
Potter fan fiction also has a large following in the slash fiction genre, stories which feature sexual relationships that not exist in the books (shipping), often portraying homosexual pairings. Famous pairings include Harry with Draco Malfoy or Cedric Diggory, and Remus Lupin with Sirius Black. Harry Potter slash has eroded some of the antipathy towards underage sexuality in the wider slash fandom.
In the fall of 2006, Jason Isaacs, who plays Lucius Malfoy in the Potter films, said that he had read fan fiction about his character and gets “a huge kick out of the more far-out stuff.”
“In everyday parlance the term quay is common in the United Kingdom and many other Commonwealth countries, and the Republic of Ireland, whereas the term wharf is more common in North America. In commercial/industrial usage wharf is typically avoided with quay being used to refer to the berthing areas, and port and terminal being used to refer to the overall structures and locations.
