The Cranberries Share Animated Music Video For “All Over Now” [Watch]

first_imgEarlier this year, Irish alt-rock heroes The Cranberries announced their plans to release a final album, In The End, featuring their late singer, Dolores O’Riordan, who died suddenly at age 46 in January 2018. The lead single from their forthcoming final studio album, “All Over Now”, was also shared with the announcement. On Wednesday, the band took the next step in what will be their final album cycle under The Cranberries banner by debuting their new animated music video for the recently-released song.The video features animation and creative direction from artist Daniel Britt, whose past work includes contributions to that epic LSD-inspired music video for Adult Swim‘s Rick and Morty. The video’s storyline follows an animated young lady, who could be considered to be a fictional nod to the band’s beloved late singer. Viewers follow the character through a rainy, dismal landscape, which somewhat mirrors the song’s lyrical themes of domestic abuse. It’s worth noting that even with the abundance of darker themes presented throughout the video, the lead character does find solace through the light from a seaside lighthouse by the end. Fans can watch the new video below.The Cranberries – “All Over Now”[Video: TheCranberriesTV]“We thought animation was the way to go — it was either that or have actors in the video,” guitarist Noel Hogan said of the video. “But animation is something we’d never really done, so we thought it would be nice.”Hogan also went on to admit that the band’s label continues to push for more music videos behind the upcoming album, much to the chagrin of the band. Discussions on the potential for another video for the album’s next single, “Wake Me When It’s Over”, are ongoing.“The record company is really kind of pushing for a mix of old footage of us,” Hogan continued. “I don’t know if that’s something we want to do. We kind of feel a video should in some way represent the song more so than be just a bunch of clips that look nice. It’s kind of an ongoing discussion at the moment.”The Cranberries will plan on disbanding entirely following the release of In The End on April 26th via BMG.last_img read more

All-hazard kits

first_imgWhat should the kit contain as a minimum?First and foremost; bottled water. FEMA and the Red Cross recommend a minimum of 1 gallon of water per person per day. Some individuals with special needs, such as children, nursing mothers and the sick, will need more than a gallon a day. You should store a two-week supply. For a family of four that means a minimum of 56 gallons of drinkable water. Additional water will be needed for bathing, flushing toilets and food preparation.Second, nonperishable foods, primarily canned foods that don’t require cooking and don’t need to be kept refrigerated or frozen. Include with this a manual can opener. Assume that you will not have electricity.A battery-operated radio and a NOAA Weather Radio, and a supply of batteries.Flashlights and other battery-operated lights. You don’t want open flames such as candles which can cause fires. Cell and land-line phones may be down and you can’t call the fire department. The fire department may not be able to respond because of blocked and flooded roads.Foul weather clothing, including sturdy shoes and jackets. Also pack bedding.Medical and other special-need supplies, including a first aid kit and first aid book.Copies of important documents such as insurance, car title, deeds and social security card.Plenty of cash. The ATM requires power.Sturdy shoes since you there may be debris with nails surrounding your location.Family safety By David StooksburyState Climatologist University of GeorgiaHindsight is 20/20. Watching tragedy unfold on the Mississippi, Louisiana and Alabama coasts this week, we see the importance of creating and keeping a hazard kit handy.Your family should have an all-hazards kit that will be good for most emergencies including hurricanes, flooding, ice storms or even terrorist attack. The all-hazards kit should contain the barest necessities to survive independently for up to two weeks.It’s important to assemble an all-hazards kit long before an impending emergency event.What you need Remind your family of these general safety measures:Plan well ahead of the event; buy needed supplies before they are sold out.If told to evacuate, evacuate.Only use gas grill and charcoal grills outside in a well-ventilated area. Treat all power lines as if they are alive; it is impossible by looking to tell the difference between a dead power line and one that can kill you.Determine a contact person in a city well away from the event. If family members become separated, they can call the contact person who can help relay messages and coordinate the reunion.Disasters often happen with little warning. Be prepared.last_img read more
