What’s up? It’s Riggs with the Nocturnal Transmission. I’m the overnight guy and will pop in on the weekend sometimes. Drop me an email if you want to talk about retro games, new video games, anime or whatever is on your mind.
A few years ago I received an email from someone introducing themselves and said they were hoping to film a movie in the Yakima Valley. I told them I'd help however I could. It turns out that the movie, "Cement Suitcase," was not only filmed in the Yakima Valley and features several famous landmarks (the 'Palms Springs sign, Zillah's Teapot Dome Gas Station, etc.), it also includes many people from the Yakima Valley.
Good news! If you haven't seen "Cement Suitcase" yet, you can watch it now on Hulu!
Two years ago, Bud Clary Toyota of Yakima decided to spend their own money to encourage children to stay in school. The premise was a simple as the name: Perfect Attendance Creates Excellence. If a child had perfect attendance, he or she was awarded a free bike, helmet and a party at the end of the year. Well this year, they're bringing the program back!
The weekend earthquake in California got me thinking about what we would do if there were an earthquake in Yakima. We're no strangers to earthquakes, but we rarely get anyhing we can actually feel. If you look at the geology underneath us, though, it shouldn't be a big surprise that Washington state has its fair share of earthquakes.
Legos have been one of my favorite toys since I was growing up. Now-a-days, people are getting more and more creative with what they create. This guy decided to create all 50 states into one quick Lego scene that tells the store of what that state is like.
Bale Breaker is getting ready for their 2014 "Ales for ALS" fundraiser. This all-ages event gives you a chance to hang out, enjoy live music and great food while helping ALS TDI seek effective treatments for amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (Lou Gehrig's Disease).
The Game Boy by Nintendo was one of the first handheld systems I owned. For me, it was technology ahead of its time. Never mind it was in black and white (or shades of green), I could play video games so long as I had batteries. I wasn't allowed to bring my Nintendo on family vacations, but this was portable enough that I could.
It breaks my heart that kids today don't realize how much technology has advanced and that something like this didn't really exist before.
When I lived in Casper, Wyo., the fireworks festival there gave out 3D fireworks glasses to enhance the light show in the sky. I don't wear them the whole time, but they are pretty neat. I decided to bust out my old ones in Moxee for Friday night's show and record putting the glasses up to the lens. Here's what it looked like.
Have you ever wondered what it would look like if you could fly through fireworks without getting blown out of the sky? Well, this brave soul sent his drone flying through the sky and rolled film to see what it would look like
