Me playing the organ at South Harrow Baptist Church, Middlesex. South Harrow Baptist Church was opened in 1935 and although a pipe organ was planned, this project was delayed as a result of the second world war and so a reed organ was used until the present instrument was built by the John Compton Organ Ltd and opened with a recital by Dr George Thalben Ball on 30th April 1949. This is believed to be Comptons first new pipe organ installation in the post war years. The organ is built using the extension principal with the pipework, including the Compton patent 32ft polyphonic bass, contained in a fully enclosed chamber speaking through ornamental grilles. In 1977 a Vox Angelica rank was added by local organ builder Keith Bance. A Rohr Flute rank has also been added. In 2005 the organ was given an overhaul and new solid state action fitted as well as a complete rewire. The specification reads: PEDAL Sub Bass 32' Sub Bass 16' Octave 8' Flute 8' Flute 4' Trombone 16' Trumpet 8' Great to Pedal Swell to Pedal GREAT Bourdon 16' Open Diapason 8' Rohr Flute 8' Salicional 8' Octave 4' Stopped Flute 4' Salicet 4' Twelfth 2.2/3' Fifteenth 2' Trumpet 8' SWELL Contra Salicional 16' Hohl Flute 8' Salicional 8' Vox Angelica 8' Flute 4' Salicet 4' Nazard 2.2/3' Piccolo 2' Tierce 1.3/5' Cymbale III Trombone 16' Trumpet 8' Clarion 4' Tremulant ACCESSORIES 4 double touch thumb pistons to Great and Pedal 4 double touch thumb pistons to Swell and Pedal 4 toe pistons to Pedal 1 canceller thumb piston - Great to Pedal 1 canceller thumb piston - Swell to Pedal 1 balanced expression pedal - organ 1 balanced expression pedal - crescendo Double touch canceller to each department For this first video im playing the hymn 'O Jesus Christ, grow thou in me' to the tune 'Westminster New' which shows off the main sounds on the organ for accompanying congregational hymn singing. Many thanks to organist David Steward for allowing me access to this wonderful Compton organ. NOTE: this is purely my interest in order to make sure that these fine organs are archived forever and I do not make any monetary profit by this video being on metacafe.

Me playing the organ at Jewin Chapel, London - a few minutes walk from Barbican underground station and also very close to the venue of 'Summer in the City' - a huge event taking place the same day I was here which sees literally 1000s of youtubers attending. Ironically, I had brought advanced train tickets with a view to going along but then realising that this wasnt for me and the tickets being non-refundable, I arranged to do what I enjoy doing most - playing Compton organs and here was my first visit of the day. As a result I decided to call this my 'summer in the city organ crawl'. The present church was built in 1961 after the original church, along with most of the area, was destroyed during the blitz in world war two. The organ installed was built by the famous John Compton Organ Company Ltd and was one of the last large complete instruments to be built by Compton before they sold off the pipe organ division and concentrated on building electronic organs. The organ is built on the extension principal using a total of 8 ranks of pipes housed in 2 fully enclosed chambers which speak into the church via a beautifully designed ornamental grille and dummy pipe facade at the front of the church. The organ is an excellent example of a post war Compton instrument and remains completely original. The specification reads: PEDAL Sub Bass 32' Open Bass 16' Sub Bass 16' Echo Bass 16' Bass Flute 8' Octave 8' Quint 5.1/3' Flute 4' Octave Flute 2' Cornet III Trombone 16' Trumpet 8' Clarion 4' Choir to Pedal Great to Pedal Swell to Pedal CHOIR Rohr Flute 8' Salicional 8' Vox Angelica 8' Klein Flote 4' Nazard 2.2/3' Doublette 2' Tierce 1.3/5' Larigot 1.1/3' Sifflote 1 Swell to Choir GREAT Sub Diapason 16' First Diapason 8' Second Diapason 8' Rohr Flute 8' Salicional 8' Principal 4' Stopped Flute 4' Twelfth 2.2/3' Fifteenth 2' Mixture III Choir to Great Swell to Great SWELL Contra Viola 16' Viola 8' Open Flute 8' Octave Viola 4' Open Flute 4' Nazard 2.2/3' Piccolo 2' Cymbale III Trombone 16' Trumpet 8' Clarion 4' Tremulant ACCESSORIES 6 double touch thumb pistons to Choir and Pedal 6 double touch thumb pistons to Great and Pedal 6 double touch thumb pistons to Swell and Pedal 4 toe pistons to Pedal and Great 4 toe pistons to Pedal and Swell 1 canceller thumb piston - Choir to Pedal 1 canceller thumb piston - Great to Pedal 1 canceller thumb piston - Swell to Pedal 1 reversible toe piston - Great to Pedal 1 balanced expression pedal - Great/Choir 1 balanced expression pedal - Swell 1 balanced expression pedal - crescendo Being in a Welsh presbyterian church and wanting something to demonstrate the power of this instrument resulted in the obvious choice of hymn - "Guide me, O thou great Jehovah' to the tune "Cwm Rhondda". Due to the recent extreme weather patterns, the Trumpet was out of tune so please excuse that. Many thanks to the church officials for allowing me to play this magnificent Compton organ and of course a big thank you to my subscribers and followers - your support and encouragement means a lot.

The late Johnny Cash was one of the most influential figures in American music in the post war period. He managed to combine elements of folk, rock 'n' roll and country, which together with his distinctive voice and guitar style, created an instantly recognisable sound. 1994 was to prove to be Cash's only appearance at the Montreux Festival. The "Man In Black" had just released his acclaimed American Recordings album and his European tour took in Montreux on July 5. This track is taken from the Eagle Vision DVD "Live at Montreux".

http://www.clymer.com 800-262-1954 Welcome to On the Lift episode two, sponsored by Clymer Manuals. I'm James Grooms, Managing Editor. We're at the Tech Center today and on the lift we have a 1970 BMW R75/5. The /5 ( slash five ) series, introduced for the 70 model year, was a real watershed bike for BMW motorcycle production. The previous generation of machines [ post war wwII R50 R50/2 /2 R60 R60US R69 R69S ] were known for their reliability, comfort and quiet operation. Once exclusive attributes to BMW, however, many of the new models from Japan [ Honda in particular with the CB350, CB450 and revolutionary CB750 ] now achieved this at a lower price along with impressive performance. The /5 was available in 500, 600 and 750 cc capacities... this being a 750, thus the R75 designation [ R50/5 R60/5 ]. While relying on BMWs trademark air cooled boxer twin, the model is a radical departure in many ways from the previous models. A telescopic fork replaced the Earles leading link fork. 12 volt electrics replaced a 6 volt system. And to the horror of many a BMW loyalist the bike was available in a color combination other than schwartz mit weiss. The horizontally opposed twin [ boxer, flat twin or airhead ] with overhead valves was all-new. Outwardly, the first noticeable change from the previous models was the placement of the pushrod tubes under the alloy barrels and cylinder heads revealing that the camshaft is under the crankshaft. [ Yes pushrods! While the world was going with SOHC and in some case DOHC, BMW stuck with camshaft in the crankcase. ] The one-piece alloy crankcase features split type bearings in place of the previous ball bearing setup. With aluminum covers over the air filter, starter and alternator, the engine appears to be immense. However, everything is alloy and once removed you can see how compact the engine really is. And the heavy forged crank and cam placed low make for a low center of gravity. You can really feel this during low speed maneuverability. The four-speed gear box is splined to a dry single plate clutch [ /6 on models had a five-speed trans ]. The kickstarter carried over from the older models and as you can see swings out away from the bike. Power is transferred through a swing arm mounted drive shaft to the differential. The hemispherical heads [ hemi ] are fed on this model with CV or constant velocity carbs [ carburetor ]. R50 and R60 s used Bing slide valve carbs. With the carbs, spark plugs, valves, breaker points, air cleaner and battery easily accessed, and shaft drive, airheads are one of the sweetest bikes when it comes to working on them [ repair manual shop manual maintenance how to DIY camera mount ] The front brake is an 8-inch twin leading shoe setup. By the early 70's most machines in this class had a disc up front. The rear is a single leading unit. Looking back the /5 has developed a cult appeal, but at the time it was not universal loved by the purists. Sidecar use wasn't recommended, fiberglass fenders...oh no! And of course the introduction of the chrome tank panels in 72 along with a smaller fuel capacity met with strong disapproval. Now those toaster tank models command higher prices. The result of low production and changing tastes I guess. Early production 5s could experience a speed wobble and a torque reaction when chopping the speed in a corner. So in 73 they added 2 inches to the swing arm and lengthened the frame. So now you have the short wheel base and the long wheel base bikes and the "which one is better" debate continues to this day. Honestly the SWB bikes just look better and that toaster tank...come on...and I love 60's era vintage Japanese bikes [ like the CB77 Superhawk, CB450 K0 K1 blackbomber Suzuki X6 Yamaha YR1 ]! Either way they were and still are great machines. The flat twin was considered a dinosaur by many in 1970. Instead of abandoning their heritage [ Germany Germans at their best, Deutschland uber alles !?], BMW took what they knew and created a technical masterpiece that has stood the test of time. This basic layout would be the foundation for 20 plus years and launch the R90S, the R100RS, the R100RT and the R80GS [Manual for /6 R60/6 R75/6 R90/6 /7 R60/7 R75/7 R80/7 R100/7 R90S R100S R100T R100 R100CS R45 R65 R65LS R80ST R80RT R80 R100GS R65GS R100R R80R R1100RS R1100GS R1100R Manual for 1970 1971 1972 1973 1974 1975 1976 1977 1978 1979 1980 1981 1982 1983 1984 1985 1986 1987 1988 1989 1990 1991 1992 1993 1994 1995 1996 Clymer manual BMW R50/5 through R100 GS PD M502-3 ISBN 0-89287-854-1] Music by Kevin MacLeod BMWON BMWMOA 5UNITED AHRMA CLYMER CLYMER.COM maintenance troubleshooting repair diy

Kim Ki-duk's 2001 film "Address Unknown" presents a political allegory of modern Korea by referencing post-war trauma through local characters set in a U.S. military base town in rural area near the border with N.Korea in 1970. The physical and emotional scars of past violence reveal current victimisation re-enacting social injustice. Cold War militarism and the U.S. presence shatter the lives of three young people and the community as they internalise the destruction of their lives.

Actual WWII German Walther P38 9mm. Real deal, not post-war. Great to shoot! And apparently, there's someone who posted a video response to this video. Their response is not part of my beliefs AT ALL. I simply enjoy shooting various guns, and I like the P38 for what it is, not for whom it was for.
