70s Stories In The News: ‘Brady Bunch’ Slot Machine, Evel Knievel, Wim Wenders

‘Member that one time The Bradys went to Vegas?
(‘The Brady Bunch’ slot machine, 2017)

‘Brady Bunch’ Slot Machine
A mind-blowing new slot machine featuring The Brady Bunch is set to hit casinos in early 2018. A wide selection of video and sound clips from the show are featured.

I’ll need to stay far away from this thing if I want to hang onto my money. It’s pushing all my buttons (pun intended). Head over for a video view of the incredible machine in action.

MeTV Quote:
Everi has included clips from the sitcom in the new slot machine, including a bonus play mode that promises to bring Maureen McCormick’s Marcia Brady ‘back to life’ and references perhaps the show’s most iconic clip from the episode ‘Her Sister’s Shadow,’ in which Jan moans to the Carol and Mike, ‘Marcia, Marcia, Marcia!’

Snake Canyon, Idaho

Evel Knievel Snake Canyon Jump
Smithsonian.com has a video available which takes a look at Snake Canyon, Idaho as it appears today while looking back on Evel Knievel’s 1974 attempt to cross the gorge in a rocket. Make the jump?

Wim Wenders Self-Portrait, 1975

Wim Wender’s Seventies Polaroids
German film director, Wim Wenders’ 1970s-era Polaroids are the subject of an article at the New Yorker magazine. You’ll want to see what developed.

New Yorker Quote:
For Wenders, it’s as if the Polaroid images were recorded on both sides, capturing the photographer’s inner vision and the outer world at the same time. For someone who remembers New York and American places from the nineteen-seventies, even dimly, Wenders’s Polaroids (which will go on display later this month in an exhibit at the Photographers’ Gallery, in London) offer the feeling of a time capsule, of a trove of personal memories that conjure an entire lost world.
