In early 2006, Manning released his long-awaited first solo album in Japan only. That album, Solid State Warrior, was subsequently issued in the U.S. under a different title The Land of Pure Imagination, along with an altered song content. In March 2008, Manning released his second solo album in Japan only. That album, Catnip Dynamite, was eventually released in the U.S. on February 3, 2009. The U.S. release contains three bonus tracks that were recorded during a live performance at Fujifest in Japan. Roger is also credited with playing keyboards on several 2004-2009 works by singer Morrissey.
Malibu is a brand of rum, flavored with liqueur, possessing an alcohol content by volume of 21.0% (42 proof). The brand is owned by Pernod Ricard.
The product was originally made from fruit spirits, flavored with rum and coconut flavoring in Curaçao. Originally, the product was used to simplify the making of piña coladas by bartenders. When the product took off, the production was then moved to Barbados where the rum is made by West Indies Rum Distillery Ltd., and the quality of the ingredients used was improved.
The brand was sold by Diageo to Allied Domecq for £560m ($800m) in 2002. In 2005, French company Pernod Ricard purchased Allied Domecq for $14 billion. The deal meant that Pernod Ricard acquired a number of alcoholic beverage brands including Malibu rum.
Past advertising campaigns labeled it "seriously easy going" and usually features people from the Caribbean taking life seriously, in a parody of the stress associated with the Western urban lifestyle, with a voice over at the end saying "If people in the Caribbean took life as seriously as this, they would never have invented Malibu. It's seriously easy going." The marketing thrust of Malibu rum has also strongly focused on marketing Malibu rum's online streaming audio station known as RadioMaliBoomBoom.com.
A boardwalk (board walk, boarded path, promenade) is a constructed pedestrian walkway along or overlooking beaches, usually built with wood boards; or as walking paths and trails over bogs and wetlands and above fragile ecosystems.
Boardwalks along intertidal zones are known as foreshoreways in Australia. A boardwalk along a river is often known as a riverwalk and a boardwalk along an oceanfront is often known as an oceanway. Aside from their obvious pedestrian usage, boardwalks have been used to create commercial districts and enable commerce along waterfronts where conventional streets would have been more expensive because of a beach or other waterfront feature. Although boardwalks can be found around the world, they are especially common along the East Coast of the United States.
Many of the original boardwalks in the United States have developed to be so successful as commercial districts and tourist attractions that the simple wooden pathways have been replaced by esplanades made of concrete, brick or other construction, sometimes with a wooden facade on the surface and sometimes not. Indeed, in many parts of the U.S. today the term boardwalk often carries more the connotation of a waterfront, pedestrian, entertainment district than the original meaning of a wooden path. One of the earliest such boardwalks was designed in New Jersey and opened June 26, 1870, in Atlantic City.
The Boardwalk nightclub was located on Little Peter Street in Manchester, England. This medium sized club and rehearsal studios, owned by Colin Sinclair, was a popular live music venue in the late 1980s and early 1990s where bands such as Oasis and Northside made their live debuts.
Along with other clubs like the Haçienda, and the International, the Boardwalk provided an important live venue for many local bands.
In later years, until the club closed in 1999, former Haçienda DJ Dave Haslam played the regular Yellow night at the Boardwalk. Haslam subsequently wrote a book about the Manchester music scene at the time, Manchester, England.
The Boardwalk Hotel and Casino was a Coney Island style hotel located on the Las Vegas Strip. It was owned and operated by MGM Mirage. It was part of the Holiday Inn hotel chain until it was acquired by MGM in 2000. It was built before the era of the mega-casinos, and with 654 rooms was relatively small compared to many properties in its vicinity.
The hotel's Coney Island theme could be seen in its facade with an original 1906 parachute jump ride and a faux wooden roller coaster. The hotel was composed of three distinct buildings all built at different times. The newest building was the 16-story tower built in 1996. The Steeplechase building was 6 stories and the Luna Park building was the original four-story structure when the hotel first opened.
The hotel began as a 200-room Holiday Inn that opened on this site in 1966. Norbert Jansen, former owner of Pioneer Club, opened Holiday Gifts adjacent to the hotel, and later Slot Joynt casino. The hotel section was briefly named Viscount Hotel in the 1980s. By 1989, under the management of Jansen, the hotel and casino were branded Boardwalk Hotel & Casino (alternately, Holiday Inn Casino Boardwalk, or Boardwalk Holiday Inn).
Not the worst workplace in the world. Sean O'Connell, director of the Hangout Music Fest, is shown at the festival site ... "I think that will, one, be a great area where you can actually sit down and eat the food," he said, "but it's also going to take a lot of the pressure off the boardwalk." ...
