Miranda rights form pdf a Creative Automotive Designer for General Motors! Thank you for viewing my site, please let me know if you have any problems or questions!
After 3 years, I knew she’d be a challenge, but didn’t think it’d be quite as much work as it became. 100s of hours, and far too much of my money later, thanks to Detroit Moped Works, she finally runs! At cruising speed of a solid 25mph and a 3-speed manual transmission, she looks and works amazing! Video of the first ride below. Named after the German word for “Bumblebee,” DKW began making the 50cc Hummel Moped in 1956. This was one of the first motorcycles in the world to have a 3-Speed gearbox.
In 1932, DKW merged with Audi and two other German auto manufacturers to form The Auto Union, which is why the DKW’s official logo contains Audi’s signature four rings, representing the four companies that combined. I purchased this bike unworking a few years ago and spend my free time fixing and restoring it. I enjoy working on simple vehicles like this one and ride my 1985 Sachs G3 moped almost everyday. Run down of features and explanation of my 1957 DKW Hummel Type 101 moped restoration project I’ve been working on. This project began 3 years ago, when I bought the bike on craigslist at an Estate sale after the owners passed away and had no children. The original owner was Paul D. My 1985 Sachs G3 50cc Moped I purchased this moped my sophomore year of college at UC.
Unable to start or run, I fixed up the bike until it ran smoothly and rode it to class and around Cincinnati nearly everyday, even in the winter. It is my pride and joy. This moped was then stolen from me 2 years ago from my house in the middle of a stormy night. I was devastated and did everything I could to spread the word about its disappearance online and around the neighborhood. I unfortunately had no luck finding it.
About 9 or so months later, I had given up the search and purchased a new moped project, my 1957 DKW Hummel above. I was convinced that my Sachs G3 was gone for good. While at work one day at the Apple Store, I get a call. Someone from Columbus, Ohio claimed that he may have found my bike after being approached by a seller on Craigslist.
He recognized it from my posts online months and months earlier and used the forums I’d posted in to get my contact information. I used the seller’s cell number and the address the man gave me to track it down, eventually retrieving it thanks to the Cincinnati PD. The original paint and graphics were ruined by the thief, so I spent the next year slowly sanding and cleaning up the bike back to the condition you see now. I am so happy to have her back! No one could have predicted that a hip-hop-infused musical based on the life of Alexander Hamilton would be Broadway’s hottest ticket, but Hamilton—which Lin-Manuel Miranda wrote over the course of six years—is sold out through next year.
Here are a few things you might not have known about Miranda’s take on the life and times of the first Secretary of the Treasury. IT WAS INSPIRED BY RON CHERNOW’S BIOGRAPHY OF HAMILTON. Not long after his show In the Heights won four Tony Awards in 2008, Lin-Manuel Miranda went on vacation. Before he left, he picked up a biography called Alexander Hamilton.
I was just browsing the biography section. I wish there was a war. It doesn’t get more hip-hop than that. Alexander Hamilton hip-hop musical’ and totally expected to see that someone had already written it. IT TOOK MIRANDA A YEAR TO WRITE THE FIRST SONG—AND ANOTHER YEAR TO WRITE THE SECOND SONG. The White House is where it began.
That’s how seriously I was taking it. I’d make a loop of it and put it in my headphones and then walk around until I had the lyrics. That’s where the notebooks come in, sort of write what comes to me, bring it back to the piano. I kind of need to be ambulatory to write lyrics. IT STARTED AS A MIXTAPE, NOT A MUSICAL. Initially, Miranda said he was working on a concept album inspired by the life of Alexander Hamilton called The Hamilton Mixtape. And I built this score by dream casting my favorite artists.
Hamilton was modeled after my favorite polysyllabic rhyming heroes, Rakim, Big Pun, and Eminem. It was easier to think of it as a hip-hop album, because then I could really just pack the lyrics. I only know how to write musicals. MIRANDA DID HIS RESEARCH—BOTH HISTORICALLY AND MUSICALLY. Hamilton’s letters and works and visited sites important to the American Revolution in New York City. He explained to The Atlantic that, to understand Burr, he read The Heartbreak of Aaron Burr by H.
Brands, and to nail the dueling code of the day, he picked up Affairs of Honor by Joanne Freeman. He wrote, for a time, at the Morris-Jumel Mansion, which Washington once used as a headquarters during the Revolutionary War. Miranda also looked at other musicals before diving into Hamilton, like Jesus Christ Superstar and Les Miserables. In terms of how it accesses your tear ducts, nothing does it better than that show. CHERNOW BECAME A HISTORICAL CONSULTANT FOR THE SHOW. Chernow became a consultant on the show. So to that end, I felt an enormous responsibility to be as historically accurate as possible, while still telling the most dramatic story possible.
