LINKIN PARK – CASTLE OF GLASS MUSIC VIDEO [HD]


“Castle Of Glass” felt like the biggest game-changer. Over an almost alternative country melody,Shinoda sings “Take me down to the river bank… wash the poison off my skin…show me how to be whole again.” It’s one of the most straight forward tunes that the band has done with a traditional song structure. Bennington and Shinoda sing together as their voices, and desperation, rise, “I’m only a crack in this castle of glass.” Much of the record was expected and then “CASTLE OF GLASS” ended our session. Looking over my scribbled text, I can make out “Americana” and “Bayou.” Think of it as what you love about LP and throw in a pinch of folk. With Chester’s horror movie past, we might hear this one in a spooky scene soon. As it played I could imagine youths terrified and running to the pace of the song as “…take me down to the river bend” filtered through their doom; it gave off an eerie feel. The melancholic “Castle of Glass” offers a steam-engine chug and a mountain of sound while Shinoda sings about being but a small crack in the titular edifice, illustrating belonging and futility in the same stroke. © WMG 2012 LiveForLinkinPark Productions Lyrics : Take me down to the river-bend Take me down where the fighting ends Wash the poison from off my skin Show me how to be whole again Fly me up on a silver wing Past the black where the sirens sing Warm me up in the nova’s glow And drop me down to the dream below Cause I’m only a crack in this castle of glass Hardly anything

Video Postcards – The Giants of Brede


Nowadays you take it for granted that when you turn on the tap out comes good quality water, but how is it moved around? In pipes, propelled with the help of high pressure pumps. But in the 1900’s much reliance was given to steam power to lift water from deep wells into treatment works and then to pump clean water to local reservoirs built in high ground for distribution by gravity to homes and businesses. In the 1960’s many of our Victorian and Edwardian engineering masterpieces were demolished, but some survived, such as the Giants of Brede steam pumping engines. Many of us hanker after a return to the “good old days” and the change of seeing the past in action, and maybe participating in its preservation for the future. Just six miles from Hastings stands the Brede Waterworks site, with two of its original tripe expansion steam engines housed in Grade II listed buildings. Brede Steam Engine Society All the restoration work is undertaken by the society and the site is open to the public on the first Saturday of every month.

A Steam Train Passes (1974) full video


The best documentary about a steam train ever… no voice-over, only sound and image. A Steam Train Passes is an award winning Australian 1974 short film set in the 1940s, featuring the operation of locomotive 3801, Australia’s best known and most widely travelled locomotive. Built in 1943, it ran until 1976 when boiler problems forced it to become a static exhibit. However, it was restored in 1986 and has been back in museum operation ever since. It is currently under the custody of the New South Wales Rail Transport Museum. This 1974 film was directed by David Haythornwaite. The actors are real drivers Chris O’Sullivan and (fireman) Harold Fowler, employees of the New South Wales Public Transport Commission.

National Geographic video – The Great Indian Railways Part 3 of 5


A puffing steam train climbs into the Himalaya, a rolling rumble echoes over the holy waters of the Ganges, an astonishing five million commuters rush daily through the Bombay Victoria Terminus – join National Geographic as we journey on one of the world’s largest railways. Since 1853, Indian railway has been a unifying force. Not only did it physically link distant regions, it also connected the myriad of castes, languages, and religions that comprise India. It’s a rich history, riding the sumptuous Palace on Wheels through Rajasthan or the “toy train” to Darjiing, but sadly, the age of steam is dying. At the Black Beauty contest, the beloved steam engines are admired for the last time. From the driver in the steaming locomotive to the station master in the sleepy village, from the family traveling to a wedding to the commuters in the large cities, this great institution reflects the country itself. Many are the faces, and varied are the stories, on THE GREAT INDIAN RAILWAY. The British Empire’s legacy to India is the subcontinent’s railway system. Indian Railways is the state-owned railway company of India. Indian Railways owns and operates most of the country’s rail transport. It is overseen by the Ministry of Railways of the Government of India. Indian Railways has one of the largest and busiest rail networks in the world, transporting over 18 million passengers and more than 2 million tonnes of freight daily. Indian Railways is one of the world’s largest commercial
