Stranger Things Star Finn Wolfhard Plays Guitar On Mac DeMarco’s Shoulders In Atlanta [Video]

first_imgThankfully, Wolfhard’s Stranger Things co-star Natalia Dyer (aka Nancy Wheeler) was side-stage to watch the action unfold, and posted some photos of the feel-good sit-in.

I have texted with him a little bit, and he’s a really nice dude. It’s pretty wild. I like the show, too. He’s so young!”Over the course of those texts, DeMarco must have invited Wolfhard to join him at a show, because during his performance at Atlanta’s The Tabernacle on Saturday, the This Old Dog rocker invited the young actor onstage to “jam,” even putting him on his shoulders while he played. Is there anything this kid can’t do?[h/t – Pitchfork]center_img Child actor Finn Wolfhard has had a big year. The 14-year-old Canadian turned heads in the role of Mike Wheeler, the fearless leader of the rag-tag A/V club gang in hit Netflix sic-fi/thriller series Stranger Things. He will also star in the upcoming remake of Stephen King‘s It, due out this fall. But while Finn is already a successful actor at a very young age, he’s only just scratched the surface of his diverse ambitions in the entertainment industry: he’s also a guitarist, as the world learned last summer when he began to post self-made videos of him playing popular songs on guitar to his Twitter feed, including covers of Nirvana‘s “Lithium,” and Mac DeMarco‘s “Salad Days.”Early morning Lithium! pic.twitter.com/qmIRnaO3y5— Finn Wolfhard (@FinnSkata) August 14, 2016last_img read more

Argentina settles football coach Sampaoli’s exit terms

first_imgMoscow, July 15 : The Argentine Football Association (AFA) has settled the terms of exit of their head coach Jorge Sampaoli following the national team’s disappointing performance at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.The AFA will pay Sampaoli $2 million for early termination of his duties instead of the $20 million indicated in his contract which was initially valid until 2020, Sputnik news agency quoted daily sports newspaper Ole as reporting on Sunday.The 58-year-old specialist took charge of the South American giants in May 2017 with the two-time champions struggling to qualify for the World Cup.After an underwhelming qualification campaign, Argentina managed to set off to Russia, where the team scraped into the knockout stage with a 2-1 win over Nigeria only to be sent home after losing 3-4 to France.In June, the media reported that the Argentina players unanimously voted for Sampaoli to be sacked as the team’s head coach after they were held to a 1-1 draw by Iceland and thrashed 0-3 by Croatia in their opening World Cup games.

Pet saviors

first_imgThe masks have a rubber seal around the muzzle, which provides air-tight contact. “No more getting foiled by fur and long noses,” Cepeda said, smiling. Pasadena is the first fire department in Los Angeles County to roll out the program, fire Chief Dennis Downs said. “All eight fire trucks are equipped with life-saving equipment for everything from aardvarks to zebras. … It’s a tool that’s been long needed.” In Pasadena, where the PHS estimates 80 percent of homes have pets, calls to a fire almost always involve an animal, Simpson said. Often indoor pets, including birds and cats, are already unconscious from smoke inhalation when firefighters arrive, Simpson said, but dogs may run off, try to protect their owners from rescuers or be too afraid to be rescued themselves. “I’ve pulled a few out after the fact, mostly from smoke inhalation,” he said. • Photo Gallery: Injured pets rescue • Video: Rescuing Pets PASADENA – Maybe no one’s happier than firefighter/paramedic Johnie Simpson about the new pet oxygen masks every Pasadena fire truck will carry from now on. “My days of kissing dogs are over,” Simpson joked Tuesday before he gave a demonstration of the new kits at Fire Station 33 on two live dogs and a toy cat, which – certainly more obligingly than the real thing – allowed itself to be put in a zip-up bag before having the mask put on. The reusable masks, in small, medium and large, will mean firefighters don’t have to improvise with human oxygen masks when pets are affected by smoke inhalation at a fire scene, said Jasser Cepeda, an animal control officer with Pasadena Humane Society, which provided the $55 kits and the training. The kits, which include two dog leashes and a cat bag, will also be carried by the three humane society vans, Cepeda said. Firefighters can use the small mask for birds, hamsters, rats, even snakes “if duty calls,” Cepeda said. “They are our bravest heroes, and I’m sure they’ll do the job.” [email protected] (626) 578-6300, Ext. 4482160Want local news?Sign up for the Localist and stay informed Something went wrong.
