On this date in 1927, Charles Lindbergh became the first person to fly solo and non-stop across the Atlantic. Due to his subsequent celebrity, his infant son was kidnapped in 1932. Despite paying the fifty thousand dollar ransom, his son was found dead near his home. He later became a Nazi sympathiser and anti-Semite but nobody's perfect #onthisdayinhistory #onthisday #history #historian
On this day in 1996, British rock band Radiohead would release their 3rd studio album "OK Computer", which also happens to be in my top 3 albums from the 90s. The album featured the singles "Paranoid Android", "Karma Police", "Lucky", "No Surprises" & "Airbag". It was nominated for the Grammy Award for album of the Year & won for Best Alternative Music Album in 1998. It would peak at No. 21 on the US Billboard 200 & make it to No.1 in the UK charts. The album would receive widespread critical aclaim, with listeners, critics & musicians calling it one of the gretest albums of all time, which I personally endorse. A wonderful album!! #radiohead #okcomputer #paranoidandroid #karmapolice #lucky #nosurprises #airbag #thomyorke #grammy #grammys #billboard #billboard200  #90s #90smusic #90srock #90srocked #albums #rock #ilovethe90s #music #rockalbum #onthisday #rockband #rockbands #90smusicrocks #ilovemusic #iloverock #songs #1996
On this day in 1996, Soundgarden released thier fifth studio album "Down on the Upside". The album featured the singles "Pretty Noose", "Burdern in My Hand" & "Blow Up the Outside World". It would debut at No.2 on the US Billboard 200 & go No.1 on the Australian & New Zealand charts. Sadly, this would be the band's final album for 16 years, as tensions within the band would lead to their break-up in 1997. #soundgarden #downontheupside #prettynoose #burdeninmyhand #blowuptheoutsideworld #chriscornell #billboard #billboard200 #breakup #1996  #90s #90smusic #90srock #90srocked #albums #rock #ilovethe90s #music #rockalbum #onthisday #rockband #rockbands #90smusicrocks #ilovemusic #iloverock #songs
On this day in 1996, American band The Wallflowers released their second album "Bringing Down the Horse". The album included the singles "One Headlight", "6th Avenue Heartache" & The Difference". Each song would receive Grammy nominations, with "One Headlight" winning for Best Rock Song & Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group in 1998. The album itself would peak at No. 4 on the Billboard 200. #thewallflowers #bringingdownthehorse #oneheadlight #6thavenueheartache #thedifference #jakobdylan #grammy #grammys #grammyaward #billboard #billboard200 # #90s #90smusic #90srock #90srocked #albums #rock #ilovethe90s #music #rockalbum #onthisday #rockband #rockbands #90smusicrocks #ilovemusic #iloverock #songs #1996

Tal día como hoy de 1471 nacía en Núremberg el pintor renacentista alemán Alberto Durero. No sólo fue precoz en el dibujo, la pintura y el grabado, sino que fue el primer artista alemán en escribir documentos autobiográficos y el primero en dar autonomía a los géneros del autorretrato y el paisaje. También avanzó en el dibujo de desnudos a partir de modelos vivos y desarrolló sus teorías del arte basándose en la experiencia y en la constante búsqueda de los ideales de belleza a través de la proporción. Autor de una extensa obra –más de 1.000 dibujos, 34 acuarelas, 108 calcografías y aguafuertes, 246 xilografías y 188 óleos-, luchó a lo largo de su vida por ennoblecer el arte de la pintura, elevándola a la categoría de arte liberal. La calidad de su obra produjo la admiración de los grandes de su época, como el príncipe de Sajonia Federico el Sabio, el teólogo y humanista Erasmo de Rotterdam, el reformador religioso Lutero, y los emperadores Maximiliano I y Carlos V. Viajó a Italia en dos ocasiones y a los Países Bajos, donde a los 49 años enfermó de malaria. Espiritualmente inquieto, Durero fue partidario de la reforma de Lutero, al que admiraba, aunque nunca acabó de decidirse plenamente por sus tesis. El más célebre de los pintores alemanes falleció el 6 de abril de 1528 en condición de hombre rico. Recibió sepultura en el cementerio de San Juan de su localidad natal.  Obra: La fiesta del Rosario (1506). Autor: Alberto Durero (1471-1528). Localización: Galería Nacional, Praga.  #arte #art #artista #artist #durero #albertodurero #taldiacomohoy #onthisday #renacimiento #pintura #painting #nuremberg #praga #museo #museos #museum #museums #gallery #instamuseum #historia #history #cultura #culture #lafiestadelrosario #rosario

#onthisday Prince Leopold Arthur Louis of Battenberg was born on 21st May 1889 at Windsor Castle. His parents were Prince Henry of Battenberg and Princess Beatrice (Queen Victoria’s youngest child). Leopold had haemophilia so he was named Leopold after his uncle who had haemophilia as well. Since this is my first post of a haemophiliac, I’ll explain to you what it is:  Haemophilia is a disease of the blood which is only affected on men. The mothers of the haemophiliacs are known as the carriers (so in Leopold’s situation, Beatrice was the carrier). Lots of Queen Victoria’s descendants were affected with haemophilia but no one today in the royal family is affected although there is a chance it could happen, but there are lots of medicine to help.  #leopoldarthurlouis #princehenryofbattenberg #windsorcastle #beatricesson #haemophilia

#onthisday 20 tahun lalu sejumlah demonstrasi mahasiswa menolak keras kepemimpinan Presiden Soeharto sebagai bentuk ketidakpuasaan sebagai Masyarakat didalam berdemokrasi. Mahasiswa yang menolak kepemimpinan Presiden Soeharto melakukan banyak aksi di antaranya adalah tragedi Tri Sakti, para mahasiswa yang mengepung DPR/MPR, bahkan beberapa mahasiswa berhasil memasuki gedung DPR/MPR.  Semakin lama, semakin banyak mahasiswa yang menduduki gedung DPR/MPR membuat Presiden Soeharto semakin terdesak dan mundurnya Soeharto dari kursi kepresidenan membuat agenda pertama reformasi menuai hasil.  #20tahunreformasi #indonesia #ipmksb  #kobar
