Demonic Creatures Fall in Love in Oneohtrix Point Never’s ‘Long Road Home’ Video

Oneohtrix Point Never, a.k.a. Daniel Lopatin, has released a fantastical new video for “Long Road Home.” The single appears on his upcoming album Magic Oneohtrix Point Never, out October 30th via Warp.

Co-directed by Charlie Fox and Emily Schubert, the clip features a courtship between two demonic creatures who become one in the end — an homage to Georges Schwizgebel‘s 1982 short Le Ravissement de Frank N. Stein. “I don’t know why I don’t wanna transform,” Lopatin sings, backed by Caroline Polachek. “Taking the long road home.”

“It’s a romantic fable about love and transformation, which grew out of a lot of wild philosophical conversations with Dan over the summer,” Fox and Schubert said in a statement. “We wanted to take these supposedly grotesque or demonic creatures and turn them into the weirdly adorable and heartbreaking protagonists of this courtship ritual. For a song that seems to be

Matt Benning has always listed Nashville as his favorite road city. Now, he’ll be calling it home.

The 26-year-old defenseman signed a two-year, $2 million contract with the Predators on Friday afternoon, as the club added depth to their blue line.

“It’s such a great town, great hockey organization,” Benning said of Nashville. “I’m really excited to join the squad and experience Nashville. It’s a great team with good core guys that have been competitive for a long time now.”

Cindy Korn, 25, was pregnant with her second child. She went into labour in the early hours of the morning. After taking 38 hours for her first birth, she decided to wait it out. But on her way to hospital, things escalated.

Cindy Korn, 25, from Singleton, NSW, shares her true story;

Breathing deeply, I rubbed my aching baby bump and moaned.

“You need to call the hospital,” my partner, Beau, urged.

I rolled my eyes and waved him away.

“It’s too soon,” I argued. “They’ll only send me home.”

Forty weeks and five days into my pregnancy, I’d gone into labour.

It was 5am and I’d been experiencing contractions for three hours, but they were still spaced out, sometimes only coming every 10 minutes.

When I gave birth to our son, Dylan, four, I was in labour for 38 hours, so I

Road Runner: Report addresses Arizona’s infrastructure, advises on improvements | Local news

And it should increase in the years ahead as officials project tens of thousands more residents by 2040.

“Arizona’s road infrastructure is critical to the state’s economic success. Arizona’s population, 6.6 million people, is using more than 66,000 miles of public roads, each traveling an average of 36.4 miles per day,” engineers said.

However, 40% of Arizona’s urban interstates are already experiencing congestion during peak morning and evening hours, the report said.

“If completing the needed roadway improvements were possible, it could stimulate short-term and long-term economic growth by creating jobs, reducing travel delays and minimizing transportation costs.”

According to the report, Arizona can address this by providing “more money allocated to infrastructure by raising the gas tax and voting in favor of transportation initiatives.” Additionally, officials noted the gas tax was last increased in 1991 and remains the fifth-lowest gas tax in the nation.

There are initiatives locally that

SCDOT is working on improvements to one of the most dangerous intersections in the county.

Between backed up traffic down Highway 501, to last-minute lane changes before a confusing intersection, Highway 501 and East Cox Ferry Road in Conway can be an everyday headache for Horry County drivers.

But it’s not just a headache. It can be deadly.

Officials with the South Carolina Department of Public Safety said in 2017, 2018, and 2019, throughout each year, there were over 100 accidents at the intersection. In 2019, a person was killed.

But the DOT said upgrades are coming.

“So anytime we look at improving intersections we look at a lot of these same type of corrective measures. As far as offsetting left-turn lanes, adding additional turn lanes,”
