Flashback: Frank Lloyd Wright’s Precursor to ‘Fallingwater’ – A House Built Atop A Mine Fire With Flames Shooting From It
PITTSBURGH – It is the stuff of legend how acclaimed architect Frank Lloyd Wright jump-started his moribund career in the mid-1930s by designing a house perched over a Western Pennsylvania waterfall. Fallingwater remains one of the most celebrated private residences in the world.
Not so well known is the precursor to Fallingwater that Wright designed the previous year: a house built directly atop an underground coal mine fire.
“Mr. Wright thought that having a perpetual smoldering effect would give the residence a measure of warmth,” explained Wright scholar Professor Franklin Toker.
HOLLYWOOD - Frank Langella, star of the critically acclaimed film “Frost/Nixon,” said he had no qualms at all about shooting the now famous nude scene for director Ron Howard. Mr. Langella plays former President Richard M. Nixon.
“I’ve never had any problems going nude, as long as it’s not something gratuitous, and is part of the context of the story,” Langella told Variety columnist Army Archerd.
“I think everybody remembers the pivotal moment in those interviews where Nixon, in a move designed to intimidate his inquisitor, spread his legs open to reveal that he wasn’t wearing any underwear. The look of shock on David Frost’s face will stay with me forever.”
Pittsburgh radio icons Jim Krenn and Randy Baumann said that and more about the brand-new Carbolic Smoke Ball book, ZOMBIES ATE MY HEADLINES, on yesterday’s WDVE Morning Show.
This Monday, the ZOMBIES rise. And walk. And make you laugh.
PARIS – Experts in Germanic music of the late 18th Century concluded that a composition discovered in a French library was written in Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart’s own hand between 1787 and 1791, and that in every detail — from its melody to its harmony to its instrumentation — it is identical to “See You Again,” the hit single by American teen pop star Miley Cyrus.
Ms. Cyrus called the revelation ”sweet” and suggested she might pose for provocative photographs with a Mozart look-alike to draw attention to the news. “You know — bare back, the whole thing.”
In New York City, Tony Salieri, a pizza delivery man for Lombardi’s in Little Italy who is a descendant of Mozart’s rival, composer Antonio Salieri, declared the composition “a piece of dreck. Typical of Mozart.”
Crusading jurist and bon vivant Judge Rufus Peckham will sit alongside Cowell, Paula Abdul, and Randy Jackson when the eighth season of “American Idol” premieres in January, the Fox network said Monday.
“For the past seven seasons, Simon has had to endure the experience of being the only heartless bastard at the judges’ table,” said Mike Darnell, President of Fox Alternative Programming, in a prepared statement. ”With Judge Peckham by his side, Simon has some backup, and now there is going to be a lot more cruelty and gleeful misanthropy on the show. We imagine the contestants will be in tears every week.”
Judge Peckham, fake news magnate and Founder Emeritus of this web site, will come out of retirement and back from the grave to join the top-rated reality competition show. ”They made me an offer I couldn’t refuse,” Peckham said through his publicist. ”And besides, a guy with a Messiah complex as great as mine couldn’t stay dead forever.”
Van Gogh’s body was exhumed because of long-held suspicions that “something was under his face,” said noted Van Gogh authority Dr. Noah Swayne. When the results of the testing were revealed at a conference of Van Gogh aficionados in Amsterdam, several experts gasped in horror.
“We have no idea how the painting got there, but this will cause us to look at van Gogh altogether differently from now on,” said Dr. Swayne.
