Orcastrated

Orcastrated

Orcastrated is a studio album by the English Punk rock band Toy Dolls, recorded in 1995. The band name is rendered as Toy Dollz on this album. The album features several cover versions of classical music. When fanzine Flipside commented about this in an interview with Michael Algar, Algar said "I really like classical. When I'm at home I never listen to punk music. I mean the Pistols, the Clash and the Damned were all my favorite bands but I like listening to opera and Mozart. To be honest I just want peace and quiet! It's nice to escape from the noise of sound checks, rehersals,(sic) gigs and you appreciate it more when you hear a guitar."The band are not a fan of the album. In a 1997 interview with My Letter to the World, Algar said that the band's following album and latest album at the time, One More Megabyte, was "better than the last album." He said that Orcastrated "was very poor" and further commented that "we've done two really poor albums. One was Bare Faced Cheek, and the last one, Oracastrated were crap." The fanzine were a fan of the album, asking Algar "What are you talking about?!", but Algar stated "Bare Faced Cheek and Orcastrated were honestly unbelievebly bad, in my opinion."Similarly, Nick of Steel Toe Records said it was "one of [his] favorite Toy Dolls albums" in a 1997 interview with Algar, to which Alzar made "a puzzled face". When Nick asked him if Orcastrated was "a success in terms of your opinion and fan response?", Algar replied "Not really, but our new one, One More Megabyte is really nice."Nonetheless, the album was received positively by critics. Writing in 2002, Razorcake said Orcastrated "runs pretty much along the same lines as all the other post-Bare-Faced Cheek releases, meaning the tempos rarely get too frantic, but the songwriting is consistently top-notch. [The] cover of Small Face’s “Lazy Sunday Afternoon” is mighty swell," and Ian Glasper also called the album "brilliant" in his 2004 book Burning Britain: The History of UK Punk 1980–1984.

Umbrellabird

Umbrellabird

The Umbrellabirds are birds in the genus Cephalopterus found in rainforests of Central and South America. With a total length of 35–50 cm, they are among the largest members of the cotinga family, and the male Amazonian Umbrellabird is the largest passerine in South America. They are almost entirely black, and have a conspicuous crest on the top of their head, vaguely resembling an umbrella. All have an inflatable wattle on the neck, which serves to amplify their loud, booming calls. This wattle may reach a length of 35 cm in the Long-wattled Umbrellabird, but it is smaller in the two remaining species, and covered in bare, bright red skin in the Bare-necked Umbrellabird. Females resemble males, but are noticeably smaller and have a reduced crest and wattle. They feed on fruits, large insects and occasionally small vertebrates. The males gather in loose leks, where they call and extend their wattle to attract females. The flimsy nest is built entirely by the females, which incubate and raise the chicks without help from the males. Of the three species, two, the Long-wattled and Bare-necked Umbrellabird, are threatened by habitat loss and to a lesser extent hunting.

Fahnestock clip

Fahnestock clip

A Fahnestock clip is an early type of spring clamp electrical terminal for connections to bare wires. It is still used occasionally in educational electronic kits and teaching laboratories in schools. It is designed to grip a bare wire securely, yet release it with the push of a tab. The clip was patented February 26, 1907by John Schade Jr., assigned to Fahnestock Electric Co. Less than 2 weeks after the patent was issued they filed for reissue. It consists of a single flat piece of springy metal, bent over itself to form a clip. Pushing down on the end of the metal tab opens a hole through which a bare or stripped wire can be inserted. Releasing pressure allows the tab to spring back, closing the hole and gripping the wire to form an electrically sound mechanical connection. Pushing the tab again releases the grip on the wire so it can be withdrawn. Modern banana plugs will usually fit into a Fahnestock clip, although the fit is tight. Fahnestock clips were commonly made of phosphor bronze or spring steel and plated with tin or copper for good electrical conductivity and corrosion-resistance. Most Fahnestock clips seen today are nickel-plated. Fahnestock clips were seen on early radio receiver breadboard construction, model train power connections, and the like. Today, they have largely been supplanted by binding posts. However, they remain in use in elementary schools especially, where their ease of use and visible connections make them a popular way for science instructors to teach the creation of simple circuits, and most university physics departments still have them on apparatus.
