[S1E3] Move The Chains
Played as individuals, this week's challenge is all about "stamina, memory, and blowing s--- up," according to T.J. Each player has a coded message board, and there are two decoding stations at the top of a giant hill. Players have to run to each station and get the key to the code, run back down, and solve the puzzle. The first two to solve their puzzles will move to the detonator and blow up two big trucks and form the Tribunal.
[S1E3] Move the Chains
At nominations, Bananas starts by voting for Jay and Jay throws a vote back to Bananas. Dee then votes for Bananas because she thinks Jay is "cute" and she wants "to get to know him more," and that rocks the boat. More people vote for Bananas, including Ashley, Fessy, and Nelson. Jordan votes for himself, Jenna tries to burn a vote on Nelson (?) which then prompts Josh, Nany, and Kaycee to vote for Nelson too. Nelson then blows up Kailah's spot, saying she told him that she was voting for Bananas, but she starts yelling at him for being an "idiot" because she was just being nice and filling him in on what she heard. She then votes for Nelson and Cory backs her up by confirming she never said she was voting for Bananas herself. This is getting messy! Aneesa says she can't vote for Bananas or Jay so she votes for Jordan. Big T votes for Bananas because she said she would, and she thought he wouldn't mind (he does). Wes then votes for Jay, lying that he's "done the numbers" and the move makes sense for his "possum" game. Bananas fake kisses him because he's so shocked that Wes didn't take the chance to stab him in the back. In his talking head interview, Wes says it feels "creepy" that he's enjoying himself around Bananas. Is their uneasy, unholy alliance going to lead to ... an actual friendship?! This might be the craziest thing to happen on this show.
The players are then treated to their first night out, getting a glimpse of the real world outside of the bunker for the first, non-challenge time, and they take the opportunity to get dressed up in crazy costumes. Bananas and Wes talk over drinks about how Wes' vote for Jay sealed the deal on their alliance. They were both not totally trusting each other before, but now they are. Their alliance is "Challenge official." Meanwhile, Dee finally makes her move on Jay and they make out in the middle of the bar. Rogan is clearly upset but says Jay is going home tomorrow because he's going to get "f---ed up" by either him or CT so it doesn't matter. Back at the bunker, he moves his blanket and pillow to another room so he doesn't sleep under Dee's bed, but she tries to convince him to come back. He finally admits he didn't like seeing her kiss Jay and they keep fighting while Jay goes to sleep happy, knowing that Rogan's having a bad night. And Dee says that she "loves and respects Rogan" as a friend so she doesn't want to upset him anymore and decides to back off from Jay for the time being. At one point, she also calls Rogan her "ride or die." Um, excuse me? How do we unsubscribe from this Dee/Rogan s--- show?!
Jerry Fulton Cantrell Jr. (born March 18, 1966) is an American guitarist, singer and songwriter. He is best known as the founder, lead guitarist, co-lead vocalist, and main songwriter of the rock band Alice in Chains. The band rose to international fame in the early 1990s during Seattle's grunge movement, and is known for its distinctive vocal style and the harmonized vocals between Cantrell and Layne Staley (and later Cantrell and William DuVall). Cantrell started to sing lead vocals on Alice in Chains' 1992 EP Sap. After Staley's death in 2002, Cantrell took the role of Alice in Chains' lead singer on most of the songs from the band's post-Staley albums, Black Gives Way to Blue (2009), The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here (2013) and Rainier Fog (2018), with DuVall harmonizing with him in the new songs and singing Staley's vocals in the old songs in live concerts.
Cantrell moved back with his mother to Spanaway where he attended junior high. His first job was delivering newspapers.Cantrell attended high school at Spanaway Lake High School, and, before owning his first guitar, he was a member of the high school choir which attended many state competitions. In his senior year, Cantrell became choir president, and the quartet sang the national anthem at basketball games and won competitions with the highest marks achievable. Cantrell has cited his interest in dark musical tones as dating back to this period: "In choir we performed a cappella Gregorian chants from the 14th and 15th centuries. It was scary church music." His choir teacher and drama teacher were, early on, his two greatest motivators toward a career in music. When Alice in Chains' first album went gold, Cantrell sent both teachers a gold record. He graduated from high school in 1984.
In 1985, Cantrell was going to winter semester of college, but he decided to quit it and moved to Dallas, Texas, to join a band with a couple of friends. Cantrell worked doing asbestos abatement around the Dallas and Houston area. He also worked at the music store Arnold and Morgan Music Company. While working at the store, Cantrell bought what he described as his first "real guitar", a 1984 G&L Rampage. During that time, he had a band with Vinnie Chas (from Pretty Boy Floyd), called Sinister. Later they formed another band called Raze.
In 1985 or 1986, Cantrell moved back to Tacoma and began a band called Diamond Lie, which included singer Scott Damon, drummer Bobby Nesbitt and bassist Matt Muasau. The band started playing concerts in Tacoma and Seattle with the goal of getting a record deal. They recorded a four-song demo at London Bridge Studio.
Cantrell met Layne Staley, then Alice N' Chains' lead singer, at a party in Seattle around August 1987. He was homeless after being kicked out of his family's house, so Staley invited Cantrell to live with him at the 24-hour rehearsal studio "The Music Bank". Shortly after Cantrell moved in with Staley at the Music Bank, Alice 'N Chains broke up.
Cantrell was homeless in the early '90s and lived for some time at the house of Pearl Jam's manager Kelly Curtis. While living in the basement of Curtis' house, Cantrell was roommates with Pearl Jam lead singer Eddie Vedder. At the start of 1991, Cantrell moved in with Soundgarden lead singer Chris Cornell and his then-wife Susan Silver at their house in Seattle. Silver was also Alice in Chains' manager. Cantrell wrote the song "Rooster" at the Cornells' house and stayed there for a few weeks. Cantrell would later pay tribute to Cornell during the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame ceremony on April 14, 2018, joining singer Ann Wilson for a rendition of Soundgarden's "Black Hole Sun". Alice in Chains also paid tribute to Cornell on the one year anniversary of his death on May 18, 2018. The band covered two Soundgarden songs, "Hunted Down" and "Boot Camp", closing their headlining set at the Rock on the Range festival in Columbus, Ohio. Towards the end of "Boot Camp", the lights on stage spelled out "CC" for Chris Cornell and "SG" for Soundgarden as feedback rang out.
Cantrell underwent shoulder surgery twice. In December 2005, a surgery in his left shoulder removed bone fragments and repaired cartilage. During a chat at ESPN.com on November 29, 2011, Cantrell revealed that he had gone through another surgery earlier that year, this time in his right shoulder and that he was in the tail end of the rehabilitation process. The surgery postponed the recording sessions of The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here as Cantrell could not play guitar for eight months while he was recovering. Cantrell explained the surgery saying, "The thing that set me back is I had some bone spurs [and] cartilage issues in my shoulders. I had the same issue in the other shoulder about six years ago so I've had them both done now. It's a repetitive motion injury from playing." While recuperating at home in a sling, Cantrell heard a riff in his head and sang it into his phone. The riff later became the song "Stone", the first single from The Devil Put Dinosaurs Here.
Part of this comes from paying off another prisoner, getting him to help break his leg chains. Hopper ends up badly injured as a result. Still, the severed ankle (and a pretty nasty gash on his leg) allow him to slip the chains off his foot.
NGAI: Takao Ozawa came from Japan, went to the University of California at Berkeley, uh, for a few years, then moved to Hawaii, where he had, um, a family. And he applied to become a naturalized citizen in 1915.
QUOTE: But now they come and say to me I am no longer an American citizen. What have I made of myself and my children? We cannot exercise our rights, we cannot leave this country. Humility and insults...blockades this way, and bridges burned behind. NARRATOR: For the Japanese community, the verdicts in the Ozawa and Thind cases were equally devastating. Now, as "aliens ineligible for citizenship," many growers were unable to purchase or even lease land to stay in business. Thousands of acres were seized from Japanese immigrants and sold to white farmers. By the time the racial requirement for naturalization was finally removed in 1952, Takao Ozawa was long dead.
NARRATOR: In 1968, President Johnson signed the Fair Housing Act. For the first time, racial language was removed from federal housing policy. Non-white families began moving into traditionally white communities in numbers.
NARRATOR: In 1966, the Frisbys moved from Queens to suburban Roosevelt, only a few miles from Levittown. Like the Frisbys, many non-white families would discover the economic value of race in the real estate market. They watched as their homes and neighborhoods in suburbia declined precisely because they had moved into them. 041b061a72
