We are where nostalgia lives

You will officially be able to set sail aboard the Titanic II in 2022! The official replica of the original ship will be setting off for its two-week maiden voyage in 2022 and will follow the original 1912 voyage plans. The ship will feature the same exact cabin layout and will sail from Dubai to Southampton, England and then to New York. This means it will be embarking on the same North Atlantic route which brought many original Titanic passengers to their death on April 12th, 1912.

Construction of the replica ship only recently resumed after a financial dispute that held up the $500 million project for a few years. The replica will carry about 2,400 passengers (almost the same amount as the original ship) and, to many passenger’s relief, it will have modern navigation and safety features aboard.

After the maiden voyage is complete (and let’s hope this time it actually gets complete) the Titanic II will embark on other global routes. Blue Line chairman Clive Palmer has opened up about the other possible routes the ship may take on.

“The ship will follow the original journey, carrying passengers from Southampton to New York, but she will also circumnavigate the globe, inspiring and enchanting people while attracting unrivaled attention, intrigue and mystery in every port she visits,” Palmer said in an interview with MSN.

The original project was suspended for years due to Palmer’s flagship company ‘being in dispute with Chinese Government owned Citic Limited over the non-payment of hundreds of millions of dollars of royalties owed to Palmer companies’, according to the Blue Star Line website.

“Citic Limited was just exporting millions of dollars of Mineralogy resources and refusing to pay for them,” Palmer stated on the financial situation.

The original Titanic ship of 1912 has sparked a great deal of mystery, debate, and conspiracies over the last several decades. Some of the major myths and legends include the ship originally being regarded as ‘unsinkable’ due to the White Star Line previously declaring her as such. The safety features onboard were highly emphasized and it was heavily publicized that sinking accidents were highly unlikely.

Additionally, in 1936, a radio operator named Gordon Cosgrave claimed to have received long-delayed echo SOS messages from the Titanic 24 years after they were sent out. One of the more famous stories is that of the Titanic ship’s band and their final tune ironically being “Nearer, My God, to Thee”.

We are where nostalgia lives

Remember the creepy little kid, Damien, from the classic 1976 film The Omen? He is currently 47 years old and has left his acting career behind. Harvey Stephens is best-known for his role as the son of the devil, Damien Thorn, which earned him a Golden Globe nomination for Best Acting Debut in a Motion Picture – Male. He is now a property developer.

Stephens also starred in the TV movie Gauguin the Savage from 1980 playing the role of Young Emil. After that, he played the role of Tabloid Reporter #3 in a remake of The Omen in 2006, which was his last-known acting role before retiring. He has guest-starred as himself on multiple TV series throughout the years such as Howard Stern on Demand in 2008 and Hollywood Treasure in 2010.

The original 1976 horror classic was directed by Richard Donner and written by David Seltzer. The plot is centered around a young boy (Damien Thorn) replaced at birth by American Ambassador Robert Thorn after his and his wife’s own son was murdered at the hospital. However, the couple is completely unaware that their new son is actually the son of Satan. Damien ends up being the cause for many mysterious deaths that occur throughout the film.

The Omen received great critical acclaim and grossed over $60 million at the box office, becoming one of the highest-grossing films of 1976. The film earned two Academy Award nominations, won an Oscar for Best Original Score for Jerry Goldsmith, and appeared at #16 for Bravo’s The 100 Scariest Movie Moments.

Director Richard Donner actually opened up about how Stephens originally got picked for the role and the story is quite hilarious. He said Stephens got the role of Damien after attacking Donner (per Donner’s request) when acting out one of the scenes for the film and punched the director right in the privates. That’s when Donner knew the kid was right for this role. Now, that’s ballsy. Pun intended.

According to some sources, the production may have actually been cursed. Similar to The Exorcist, where many accidents happened on set and even some deaths, there were a number of incidents that occurred on the set of The Omen as well.

Some of the incidents include Richard Donner’s hotel being bombed by the IRA the day after they shot the safari park scene and the stuntman standing in for Gregory Peck (Robert Thorn) being attacked by Rottweilers during the graveyard scene. Yikes!

We are where nostalgia lives

Do you use plastic wrap or saran wrap often? If you do, you need to know these hacks! Plastic wrap can be annoying to use and it isn’t great for the environment. However, sometimes you just gotta use it! There are some other tricks you can use to increase its usefulness too.

Do you store your plastic wrap in a drawer? If you do, you are storing it wrong! The best place to store plastic wrap is in the freezer. If you don’t have room in your freezer to store it permanently, remember to put it in there for a few minutes before using it. The cold air will help reduce that annoying static cling. It will help you tear off a piece easier and wrap your food up without it becoming a sticky mess.

2. Use it as shelf liner

If you need shelf liner in a pinch, use plastic wrap. You can also wrap the inside of your fridge so that when something inevitably spills, you can just throw away that piece of plastic wrap.

3. Avoid freezer burn

When you open up a tub of ice cream, wrap plastic wrap over it before you put the lid back on and put it away. It will help avoid that gross freezer burn that might happen if you don’t finish that ice cream quickly enough.

4. Keep your toiletries from spilling while traveling

Nothing ruins a vacation like opening up your luggage to find that your shampoo spilled everywhere. To avoid that happening, put plastic wrap over the lids of your liquid toiletries before you put the cap on. This will help protect your clothes and other items from spilled liquids and keep the cap on tight.

5. Moving? Use it to hold things together

This Cosmetic Line Is Inspired By Vintage Makeup From The ’20s To The ’70s

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

Did you know there is a cosmetics line called Besame Cosmetics which specializes in antique makeup? They have lipsticks, mascaras, fragrances, and more that all give nods from 1920 all the way up to 1970. The line can not only be found on their official website, but can also be found online at Sephora, ModCloth, and more.

So, what inspired this antique-makeup cosmetics line? The vintage makeup process, of course. Makeup processing was a lot different back then than it is today, and even some of the applicators, like mascara, were a whole lot different. You can bet that they follow this makeup-creating process to a ‘T’. It’s a huge hit of nostalgia for those who still have their very first 1950s Ruby-red lipstick.

Besame Cosmetics actually stirs and melts their pigments together to create their stunning, signature red lipsticks. They have their full lipstick-creating process listed on their website for all consumers to view.

Step 1: Finesse the Formula

“Women seldom have time to re-apply lipstick throughout the day, so long-wearing was a priority for this lipstick. Denser colors provide longer wear, so we created a weightless, high-pigment formula that stays put with a semi-matte satin finish.”

Step 2: Make the Molds

“An engineer created technical drawings which the factory used to make custom molds built in the U.S. Accuracy is crucial, since even a millimeter variation can make the mechanism fail. Our molds have a special blunt tip to make application easier, and can hold 80 lipsticks at a time.”

Step 3: Design the Packaging

“After testing many design and color combinations, we mocked up the final packaging of the tube and fit the decorative illustrations around the 3D model. Ultimately, we chose the chrysanthemum for its popularity in early deco packaging, and for the motif’s timeless, yet fresh appeal.”

Step 4: Fill the Bullets”First, we hand-pour hot lipstick into the molds for castings. Then, we scrape excess lipstick from the top of the mold in order to remove the casting. Lastly, we inspect the castings for any defects, and discard anything that’s not perfection.”

Step 5: Release the Castings

“After cooling off on a frozen table, we release the cast lipsticks from the mold and rest them on a tray before inserting them into their metal bases. We then carefully attach them to our decorated bullet, and slightly flame the lipstick to remove the surface marks and create a high-shine finish.”

Liam Neeson’s Son Changed His Last Name To Honor His Late Mother, Natasha Richardson

This article is from Do You Remember. Click the title to hop over there.

We are where nostalgia lives

Liam Neeson’s son, Micheál, is honoring his late mother, Natasha Richardson, in the most personal, unconventional, and most beautiful way possible. He has changed his last name from Neeson to Richardson to honor her memory and legacy. Natasha Richardson, best-known for her role in the 1998 The Parent Trap, died in 2009 of blunt force trauma to the head after she fell while skiing in Quebec.

Sadly, Richardson’s sons were 13 and 12 at the time of their mom’s death, rendering them old enough to remember the pain and grief that was caused by the tragic event. It is evident that the two boys, especially Micheál, hold their late mother close to their hearts still to this day.

Richardson’s mother, Vanessa Redgrave, 81, opened up about the name change and seemed incredibly happy and moved by it. “That wasn’t because he wanted to avoid his father’s fame, which is enormous. He wanted to hold his mother close to him — because she was a remarkable actress. Absolutely remarkable.”

It certainly is touching that despite having the last name of one of the most famous men in the world, he doesn’t care much about the fame and publicity due to the last name Neeson. Micheál cares much more about honoring his late mother and it’s so heartwarming.

Micheál has been open about trying to cope with his mother’s death over the years. He has said in past interviews that he either just pushed it out or stored it deep inside. He never really addressed the emotions and just tried to “move on” by the following week.

Micheál apparently used drugs and alcohol to cope with the loss of his mother. “Things just started going downhill. The people I was with, we were partying a lot. It was dark. I hit rock bottom,” he says, recalling on that time in his life. People would claim that Micheál was acting like this due to the loss of his mom and his response would be that he ‘just likes to party’.

Liam Neeson actually opened up in 2014 on 60 Minutes about witnessing his wife in the hospital, knocking on death’s door.

“I went in to her and told her I loved her. Said, ‘Sweetie, you’re not coming back from this. You’ve banged your head. It’s — I don’t know if you can hear me, but that’s — this is what’s gone down. And we’re bringing ya back to New York. All your family and friends will come.’ And that was more or less it.”
