The first host of The Tonight Show was Steve Allen followed by Jack Paar, then Johnny Carson.


The Jack Paar Showwas the first American show to show a clip of the Beatles from a UK concert. The show aired in Jaunary 1964, one month before the Beatles played The Ed Sullivan Show

One of the mock-wikipedia websites is http://www.imfdb.org/index.php/Main_Page

It caters to gun enthusiasts who want to know who had what type of gun and how they handled it in movies, television, and video games.

Over at Union Station in Washington, DC you will find inside and outside statues of Roman centurions with shields.

Artist Saint-Gaudens was picked by the Fine Arts Commission to design the statues for the train terminal and he asked if they wanted the statues to be historically accurate. He then delivered his models to the horrification of the commission when the statues all had visible privates.

Though historically accurate this was unacceptable and he was sent back to redesign the statues. Which is why now you will find the Roman centurions holding "Modesty Shields" down below.

At the Beatles 1965 Shea Stadium concert (where the broke the attendance record with 56,000 or more), two people seperatly attended that concert and would have interesting later involvments with the Beatles. One was Linda McCatrney, the other was Barbara Bach.

On April 30, 2005 the Nickelodeon Studios building in Universal Studios Florida came to a close. It had been there since 1990.

The building remained abandoned until November 2006 when it was announced they were making the spot into a venue for The Blue Man Group.

On June 6, 2007 the Blue Man Group Sharp Aquos Theatre opened.

Muslim groups were responsible for some changes done to the N64 game The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time.


One change was for The Fire Temple soundtrack. The original soundtrack had what was thought to be Muslim chants and it was removed in later releases/ports of the game.

The original soundtrack - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3_nCxM9ofhI

The updated soundtrack - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yH6xUvWKspk



The other change was done to Link's mirror shield. The original design had a cresent moon and it was taken out.
