Iconic gangster film location demolished

Iconic gangster film location demolished Jul 27th, 2010 at 9:30AM: The 1971 film Get Carter was the classic British gangster picture, generating a whole genre as well as a steady trickle of film tourists to an unlikely location--an ugly concrete car park. The Trinity Square Car Park in Gateshead, across the river Tyne from Newcastle, England, was the scene of a fight between Michael Caine, playing tough gangster Jack Carter, and bad guy businessman Cliff...

New Hampshire inn wants you to get dirty this spring

New Hampshire inn wants you to get dirty this spring Mar 24th, 2010 at 1:30PM: Winter's starting to turn into spring up in New England, which means pristine white landscapes turn into a brown slop.

Plane dismantled in search of mobile phone

Plane dismantled in search of mobile phone Oct 21st, 2009 at 6:30PM: We all know we're not supposed to turn on our mobile phones until our plane has reached the terminal.

This 84 mile National Trail begins at the appropriately named Wallsend neighborhood of Newcastle Upon Tyne, an industrial city in northern England. Not my ideal way to start a six-day hike, but right at the Wall's eastern end is Segedunum, one of the most completely excavated Roman forts in the world. Virtually all of it has...

Photo of the Day (10/08/07)

Photo of the Day (10/08/07) Oct 8th, 2007 at 8:00AM: Angel of the North, Newcastle, shot by ourmanwhere. Bold shot straight into the sun, very a propos for an angel shot. I like the deep blue of "heaven" against the plain black of "earth", or "hell" depending on your view of this world. The "little people" at his feet are a nice touch. ***If you'd like your photos to be considered for a Photo of the Day, post them at Gadling's Photo Pool on...
