Question by ßЭϽϽȺ✖: Bored. Need GOOD Old/New songs to download. Any help here? NO HEAVY METAL! (But paramore are good) CLICK! <<<
I need some decent songs to download, old or new, doesnt matter. As long as there is no really heavy metal, i do like rock (Paramore, Hey Monday, Flyleaf, Carolina Liar) Just no heavy stuff when its basically just people screaming.
I like music thats played on The Vampire Diaries and One Tree Hill, like…indie music.
Apartt from that any new tunes you can think of that will be in the charts soon and get popular.
Thanks!

Q&A: Where can I find History of Metal Lawn Chairs and Metal Tulip Chairs?

Question by momosix: Where can I find History of Metal Lawn Chairs and Metal Tulip Chairs?
Anybody have any good websites where I can find history of the Metal Tulip Lawn Chairs – or metal lawn chairs in general – manufacture info, design, quality, what to look for in originals, replicas, etc. Any clue who designed the first one?

Answer by pescador
This furniture is a symbol of the simpler times
that followed the first world war.
Previously, American designers had copied
European steamer chairs, or French bistro chairs.

The first companies to manufacture metal gliders and swings were The J.R. Bedding Company, in Philadelphia and Howell Manufacturing, whose designs were a rage at the 1939 World Fair!
One of the first designers to create a chair that was marketed to the masses was Viktor Schreckengost, an eclectic inventor also responsible for the design of metal children’s pushcars and bicycles for the recently defunct Murray Ohio Manufacturing Company (A distant relative informed me recently that their family name, popular in western PA, means “scary ghost!”)

His Beverly Hills model, sold through Sears Roebuck during WWII, can still be found across the country. Schreckengost designed the chair by offering a free drink to all 428 workers at the Murray plant in return for their participation in its creation. Each plant worker sat on the lid of a barrel layered with 8 inches of clay covered with plastic. The prototype was created, the first metal die-cut made, and when the war ended sales flourished.
The joyous optimism of the nation was reflected in the c-0-0-0-l new color choices: red, lime, lavender, canary yellow and blue. It’s lines were sleek and modern, much like the polished chrome and tubular steel evident in everything from baby “buggies” to mixmasters.

Question by smartee: Anybody know anything about the History of Metal as a Roofing material?
I’m doing a report, and cannot find much of anything online or in the library. If you know any good websites or books or articles that I can use, it would be much appreciated, especially if there are pictures. I just need to know some early uses of metal roofing.
