How to use blast in a sentence?

  1. Hunter Pence:

    Spring training, it’s a blast—everything’s just done really well out here, everything’s super close. It’s just nice having all the fans come out from all the different teams. It’s a good atmosphere.

  2. Johnny Galecki:

    Early on, Bobby and Jordan Horowitz (another of the film’s producers) bonded over the idea of using practical effects, nobody has anything against CGI as an additive. I think we all see the benefit of digital effects. But I think audiences have missed seeing these puppets, I think they miss seeing the sweat and the fingerprints. We used CGI as a sweetener, very, very subtly, in expressions in the eyes and things of that nature. Otherwise, we had real puppeteers there, whether they were under the table with their hand in the puppet or whether they were within the puppet, as the creatures grow bigger. It was a blast; it was really fun. Oddly, when you spend 12 hours a day with these puppets, they become little personalities. They just feel like fellow castmates, as absurd as that sounds.

  3. Desiderius Erasmus:

    They take unbelievable pleasure in the hideous blast of the hunting horn and baying of the hounds. Dogs dung smells sweet as cinnamon to them.

  4. Roy Rickhuss:

    The blast furnace must be mothballed properly to give it the chance of a future. We have serious concerns about the ability of SSI to do this and so the government must step in.

  5. Brian Schaeffer:

    Everything close to where the blast occurred was fractured, i've never seen that amount of force exerted on a structure in my career.
