Don't Bother to Knock is a 1952 American thriller film starring Richard Widmark and Marilyn Monroe, directed by Roy Ward Baker and written by Daniel Taradash. It is based on the book Mischief by Charlotte Armstrong published in 1951. Monroe is featured as a disturbed babysitter watching a child at the same New York hotel where a pilot, played by Widmark, is staying. Her strange behavior makes him increasingly aware that she is the last person the parents should have entrusted with their daughter. Lyn Lesley (Anne Bancroft), the bar singer at New York's McKinley Hotel, wonders if airline pilot Jed Towers (Richard Widmark) will show up. She had ended their six-month relationship with a letter. When Jed does register at the hotel, she explains that she sees no future with him because he lacks an understanding heart. Meanwhile, elevator operator Eddie (Elisha Cook Jr.) introduces his shy niece, Nell Forbes (Marilyn Monroe), to guests Peter (Jim Backus) and Ruth Jones (Lurene Tuttle) as a babysitter for their daughter Bunny (Donna Corcoran). The Joneses go down a function in the hotel's banquet hall. After the child is put to bed, Nell tries on Ruth's lacy negligee, jewelry, perfume and lipstick. Seeing Nell from his room directly opposite, Jed calls her on the telephone, but she is not interested. When Eddie checks up on Nell, he is appalled to find her wearing Ruth's property and orders her to take them off. Eddie tells her she can obtain such luxuries for herself by finding another boyfriend to replace the one who was killed. After Eddie leaves, Nell invites Jed over. Nell lies to keep Jed believing that she herself is a guest. She is startled when Jed reveals that he is a pilot. She confides that her boyfriend Philip died while flying an airplane to Hawaii. Bunny comes out and unmasks Nell's charade. Furious, Nell shakes the child and orders her back to bed. Jed comforts the crying Bunny and lets her stay up. When Bunny looks out the open window, however, it appears that Nell is considering pushing her out. Though Jed snatches the girl away, the incident is witnessed by long-term hotel resident Emma Ballew (Verna Felton). Nell escorts the child to bed, then accuses Bunny of spying on her and implies that something might happen to her favorite toy if she makes any more trouble. Jed has decided to seek Lyn's forgiveness, but Nell begs him not to leave. As he is fending off a kiss from her, Jed sees scars on her wrists. Nell confesses that after Philip died, she tried to kill herself with a razor. When Eddie checks up on Nell after his shift is over, Nell makes Jed hide in the bathroom. Eddie is irate that Nell is still wearing Ruth's things. He orders her to change clothes, then harshly rubs off her lipstick. This enrages Nell, who accuses Eddie of being just like her repressive parents. Then, when he suspects there is someone in the bathroom, she hits him over the head with a heavy object. While Jed tends to Eddie, Nell goes into Bunny's room. A suspicious Emma Ballew (accompanied by her skeptical husband), knocks on the door. Fearing for his job, Eddie persuades Jed to hide behind the door, while he slips into the closet. Jed sneaks into Bunny's room. In the dark, he does not notice that the child is now bound and gagged. When the Ballews see him exit from the door of the adjoining room, they assume that Jed had forced his way in and was holding Nell captive. They alert the hotel detective. Nell, who is now so deluded that she believes Jed is Philip, locks Eddie in the closet and goes into Bunny's room. In the bar, Jed tells Lyn about Nell. Lyn is surprised by his concern. Suddenly realizing that Bunny was on the wrong bed, Jed rushes back up. Ruth Jones arrives first and screams when she enters Bunny's room. Bunny is discovered and is set free. The two women grapple. Jed pulls Nell away, but she slips away in the confusion when the hotel detective arrives. Eddie admits that Nell had spent the previous three years in a mental institution following her suicide attempt. In the lobby, Nell steals some razor blades. When she is surrounded, she considers using one. Lyn tries to calm her down. Then Jed persuades her to give him the blade. Nell is taken away by the police. Seeing that Jed does have empathy after all, Lyn reconciles with him. This was Anne Bancroft's first film. It was Monroe's 18th and an attempt to prove to critics that she could act. The working titles of the film were Mischief and Night Without Sleep, the latter of which was the release title of another 1952 Twentieth Century-Fox film. Dorothy McGuire was originally cast as the picture's star, with Jules Dassin set to direct. This movie marked the first time Monroe and composer Lionel Newman worked together in the same movie. The title credit music was used previously in the film Panic in the Streets (1950). Film critic Dennis Schwartz gave the film a mostly positive review, and seems to be captured by Monroe's performance. He wrote, "Wacko psychological thriller, set entirely in a NYC hotel, and helmed without urgency by Roy Ward Baker (The Vault of Horror/Asylum/Scars of Dracula). It lacks emotional depth, but is diverting as it gives off nervous energy and remains watchable throughout. Marilyn Monroe was in 12 previous films, but this was her first co-starring headliner role. Playing someone mentally deranged, Marilyn wonderfully channels how her mentally troubled mom acted and gives a believable performance (she's the best reason for seeing this forgettable pic). It's based on a novel by Charlotte Armstrong and is written by Daniel Taradash."
"Another Body Murdered" is a song created as a collaboration between Faith No More and Boo-Yaa T.R.I.B.E. for the soundtrack to the 1993 film Judgment Night. It was released as a single in September 1993, one month before the film's première. It was the first recording by Faith No More to not include guitarist Jim Martin despite him still being in the band at the time, Bassist Billy Gould performed guitar for the record instead. The music video was directed by Marcus Raboy. Despite charting in a few countries and being released as a single, this song has never been re-released on any Faith No More compilation albums apart from the UK only 'The Works' 3 disc boxset. It was also used as the theme song for the wrestler Samoa Joe.
Judgment at Nuremberg is a 1961 American drama film dealing with the Holocaust, with non-combatant (e.g., crimes committed in violation of the Law of Nations; or the Laws of War, against a civilian population) War Crimes, and the Post-World War II geo-political complexity of the Nuremberg Trials. The picture was written by Abby Mann, directed by Stanley Kramer, and stars Spencer Tracy, Burt Lancaster, Richard Widmark, Maximilian Schell, Werner Klemperer, Marlene Dietrich, Judy Garland, William Shatner, and Montgomery Clift. An earlier adaptation had been broadcast as a television episode of Playhouse 90. Schell and Klemperer played the same roles in this version as well. While the persecution of the Jews is shown (in newsreel footage) and discussed, the incidents and events which form the foundation of the film's plot are largely concerned with the domestic situation in Germany prior to World War II. This trial depicted was part of the Subsequent Nuremberg Trials (more formally, the Trials of War Criminals before the Nuremberg Military Tribunals), a series of twelve U.S. military tribunals for war crimes against surviving members of the military, political, and economic leadership of Nazi Germany, held in the Palace of Justice, Nuremberg, after World War II from 1946 to 1949 following the Trial of the Major War Criminals before the International Military Tribunal (IMT). The film depicts the trial of certain judges who served before and through the Nazi regime in Germany, and who either passively, actively, or in a combination of both, embraced and enforced laws that led to the judicial acts of sexual sterilization, to imprisonment or execution of people for their religions, their racial and ethnic identities, for their political beliefs, or even for their physical handicaps or disabilities. The film was inspired by the Judges' Trial before the Nuremberg Military Tribunal in 1947, where four of the defendants were sentenced to life in prison. A key thread in the film's plot involves a "race defilement" trial known as the "Feldenstein case". In this fictionalized case, based on the real life Katzenberger Trial, an elderly Jewish man was tried for a relationship with an "Aryan" (German) woman that became legally defined as "crime" under the Nuremberg Laws, and put to death in 1935. Using this and other examples, the movie explores and wrestles with issues of personal conscience, responsibility in the face of unjust laws, and personal behavior in the face of widespread societal immorality. Judgment at Nuremberg centers on a military tribunal held in Nuremberg, Germany, in which four judges are accused of crimes against humanity for their actions during the Nazi regime. Judge Dan Haywood (Spencer Tracy) is the Chief Trial Judge of a three-judge panel that will both hear and then decide the case against the defendants. Haywood begins his examinations by attempting to understand how defendant Ernst Janning (Burt Lancaster) could have passed sentences resulting in genocide. Janning, it is revealed, is a well educated and internationally respected jurist and legal scholar. By extension, Haywood is also deeply curious to understand how the German people could have turned blind eyes and deaf ears to the Holocaust. In doing so, he befriends the widow (Marlene Dietrich) of a German general executed by the Allies. He talks with a number of Germans with different perspectives on the war. Other characters the Judge meets are U.S. Army Captain Byers (William Shatner), who is assigned to the American party hearing the cases, and Irene Hoffman (Judy Garland), who is afraid to bring testimony that may turn the case against the judges in favor of the prosecution. The film examines the questions of individual complicity in crimes committed by their states. For example, defense attorney Hans Rolfe (Maximilian Schell) raises such issues as the support of U.S. Supreme Court justice Oliver Wendell Holmes Jr. for eugenics practices (see Buck v. Bell), the Hitler-Vatican Reichskonkordat in 1933, the Nazi-Soviet Pact in 1939 that allowed Hitler to start World War II, Winston Churchill's praise for Adolf Hitler in 1938 and the U.S. atomic bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki at the end of the war. At the end, Janning makes a statement condemning himself and his fellow defendants for "going along" with the Third Reich; all four are found guilty and sentenced to life in prison. The film is notable for its use of courtroom drama to directly confront individual perfidy, social upheaval and amorality; in addition, it is one of the first few films that does not shy from showing actual footage filmed by American and British soldiers after the liberation of the Nazi concentration camps. Shown in court by prosecuting attorney Colonel Tad Lawson (Richard Widmark), the footage of huge piles of naked corpses laid out in rows and bulldozed into large pits was exceptionally gruesome for a mainstream film of its day. The film ends with Haywood having to choose between patriotism and justice, and he rejects the call to let the Nazi judges off lightly to gain Germany's support in the Cold War against the Soviet Union. At the end of the film Janning concedes to Judge Haywood that his ruling was the right and just decision, but also appeals to the Judge that he, and all of the other judges, did not know their actions would come to such a horrifying conclusion. Judge Haywood refutes him, saying "Herr Janning, it came to that the first time you sentenced a man to death you knew to be innocent". Judgment at Nuremberg provided key early roles for two actors who would later become prominent in TV and film during the 1960s: Werner Klemperer as Emil Hahn, one of the judges on trial, and William Shatner as Captain Byers. There is also a brief but significant role for Howard Caine as Irene Wallner's husband. Klemperer was a real refugee from Nazi Germany who emigrated to the US permanently after Hitler's rise to power in 1933. A Jewish refugee, he served in the US Air Force during World War II and subsequently obtained stage and TV roles, the most famous was of the goofy Col. Klink on the sitcom Hogan's Heroes. He allegedly refused to portray a Nazi unless he was assured the character would be a buffoon or a complete scoundrel. The son of renowned composer-conductor Otto Klemperer, he was an accomplished violinist and later found fame as a narrator with many renowned orchestras. Caine also went on to find fame by his appearances as the villainous Maj. Hochstetter in Hogan's Heroes, as well as on the stage on Broadway and elsewhere. Shatner went on to appear in other films, and on TV series such as The Twilight Zone before achieving fame as Captain Kirk on the original series Star Trek. The movie was nominated for eleven Academy Awards. Maximilian Schell won the award for Best Actor, and Abby Mann won in the Best Adapted Screenplay category. The remaining nominations were for Best Picture, Stanley Kramer for Best Director, Spencer Tracy for Best Actor, Montgomery Clift for Best Supporting Actor, Judy Garland for Best Supporting Actress, Best Art Direction, Black-and-White, Best Cinematography, Black-and-White, Best Costume Design, Black-and-White, and Best Film Editing. Stanley Kramer was given the prestigious Irving G. Thalberg Memorial Award. This is one of the few times that a film had multiple entries in the same category (Tracy and Schell for Best Actor) and Schell was the first Best Actor winner to be billed fifth. Many of the big name actors who appeared in the film did so for a fraction of their usual salaries because they believed in the social importance of the project. In June 2008, the American Film Institute revealed its "Ten Top Ten" after polling over 1,500 people from the creative community. Judgment at Nuremberg was acknowledged as the tenth best film in the courtroom drama genre. Additionally, the film had been nominated for AFI's 100 Years...100 Movies. In 2001, a stage adaptation of the film was produced for Broadway, starring Schell (this time in the role of Ernst Janning) and George Grizzard, with John Tillinger as director. The film grossed $6 million and recorded a loss of $1.5 million. Kramer's second trial film received positive reviews and was liked as a straight reconstruction of the famous trials of Nazi War Criminals. The cast was especially praised, including Tracy, Garland, Lancaster, and Schell. The film's release was perfectly timed as its subject coincided with the then trial and conviction in Israel of Nazi official Adolf Eichmann.
The Last Judgment, Final Judgment, Day of Judgment, Judgment Day, or The Day of the Lord or in Islam Yawm al-Qiyāmah or Yawm ad-Din is part of the eschatological world view of the Abrahamic religions and in the Frashokereti of Zoroastrianism. In Christian theology, it is the final and eternal judgment by God of every nation. The concept is found in all the Canonical gospels, particularly the Gospel of Matthew. Christian Futurists believes it will take place after the Resurrection of the Dead and the Second Coming of Christ while Full Preterists believe it has already occurred. The belief has inspired numerous artistic depictions. The doctrine and iconographic depiction of the "Last Judgment" are drawn from many passages from the apocalyptic sections of the Bible. It appears most directly in The Sheep and the Goats section of the Gospel of Matthew where the judgment is entirely based on help given or refused to "the least of these": When the Son of Man comes in His glory. All the nations will be gathered before Him, and He will separate people one from another as a shepherd separates his sheep from the goats, and He will set the sheep on His right hand but the goats at the left. Then the king will say to those on His right hand, “Come, you blessed of My Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world; for I was hungry and you gave me food, I was thirsty and you gave me drink, I was a stranger and you took Me in, I was naked and you clothed Me, I was sick and you visited me, I was in prison and you came to me.” ... “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did it to one of the least of these My Brethren, you did it to me.” Then He will also say to those on the left hand, “Depart from Me, you cursed, into the everlasting fire prepared for the devil and his angels; for I was hungry and you gave Me no food, I was thirsty and you gave Me no drink, I was a stranger and you did not take Me in, naked and you did not clothe Me, sick and in prison and you did not visit Me.” ... “Assuredly, I say to you, inasmuch as you did not do it to one of the least of these, you did not do it to me.” And these will go away into everlasting punishment, but the righteous into eternal life. (Matthew 25:31–36, 40–43, 45–46 NRSV) The doctrine is further supported by passages in the Books of Daniel, Isaiah and the Revelation: And I saw a great white throne, and him that sat on it, from whose face the earth and the heaven fled away; and there was found no place for them. And I saw the dead, small and great, stand before God; and the books were opened: and another book was opened, which is the book of life: and the dead were judged out of those things which were written in the books, according to their works. (Rev 20:11–12) Adherents of millennialism, mostly Protestant Christians, regard the two passages as describing separate events: the "sheep and goats" judgment will determine the final status of those persons alive at the end of the Tribulation, and the "Great White Throne" judgment will be the final condemnation of the unrighteous dead at the end of all time, after the end of the world and before the beginning of the eternal period described in the final two chapters of Revelation.][ Also, Matthew 3:10–12: Even now the axe is lying at the root of the trees; every tree therefore that does not bear good fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. "I baptize you with water for repentance, but one who is more powerful than I is coming after me; I am not worthy to carry his sandals. He will baptize you with the Holy Spirit and fire. His winnowing fork is in his hand, and he will clear his threshing-floor and will gather his wheat into the granary; but the chaff he will burn with unquenchable fire." Matthew 13:40–43: Just as the weeds are collected and burned up with fire, so will it be at the end of the age. The Son of Man will send his angels, and they will collect out of his kingdom all causes of sin and all evildoers, and they will throw them into the furnace of fire, where there will be weeping and gnashing of teeth. Then the righteous will shine like the sun in the kingdom of their Father. Let anyone with ears listen! Luke 12:4–5, 49: "I tell you, my friends, do not fear those who kill the body, and after that can do nothing more. But I will warn you whom to fear: fear him who, after he has killed, has authority to cast into hell. Yes, I tell you, fear him! ... I came to bring fire to the earth, and how I wish it were already kindled!" Belief in the last judgment (often linked with the General judgment) is held firmly inside Catholicism. Immediately upon death each soul undergoes the particular judgment, and depending upon the state of the person's soul, goes to heaven, purgatory, or hell. The last judgment will occur after the resurrection of the dead and the reuniting of a person's soul with own physical body. The Catholic Church teaches that at the time of the last judgment Christ will come in His glory, and all the angels with him, and in his presence the truth of each man's relationship with God will be laid bare, and each person who has ever lived will be judged with perfect justice. Those already in heaven will remain in heaven; those already in hell will remain in hell; and those in purgatory will be released into heaven. Following the last judgment, the bliss of heaven and the pains of hell will be perfected in that those present will also be capable of physical bliss/pain. After the last judgment the universe itself will be renewed with a new heaven and a new earth in the World to Come. The Eastern Orthodox Church teaches that there are two judgments: the first, or "Particular" Judgment, is that experienced by each individual at the time of his or her death, at which time God will decide where the soul is to spend the time until the Second Coming of Christ (see Hades in Christianity). This judgment is generally believed to occur on the fortieth day after death. The second, "General" or "Final" Judgment will occur after the Second Coming. Although in modern times some have attempted to introduce the concept of Soul sleep into Orthodox thought about life after death, it has never been a part of traditional Orthodox teaching—in fact, it contradicts the Orthodox understanding of the intercession of the Saints. Eastern Orthodoxy teaches that salvation is bestowed by God as a free gift of Divine grace, which cannot be earned, and by which forgiveness of sins is available to all. However, the deeds done by each person are believed to affect how he will be judged, following the Parable of the Sheep and the Goats. How forgiveness is to be balanced against behavior is not well-defined in scripture, judgment in the matter being solely Christ's. Similarly, although Orthodoxy teaches that salvation is obtained only through Christ and his Church, the fate of those outside the Church at the Last Judgment is left to the mercy of God and is not declared. The theme of the Last Judgment is extremely important in Orthodoxy. Traditionally, an Orthodox church will have a fresco or mosaic of the Last Judgment on the back (western) wall, (see the 12th-century mosaic pictured at the top of this page) so that the faithful, as they leave the services, are reminded that they will be judged by what they do during this earthly life. The icon of the Last Judgement traditionally depicts Christ Pantokrator, enthroned in glory on a white throne, surrounded by the Theotokos (Virgin Mary), John the Baptist, Apostles, saints and angels. Beneath the throne the scene is divided in half with the "mansions of the righteous" (John 14:2), i.e., those who have been saved to Jesus' right (the viewer's left); and the torments of those who have been damned to his left. Separating the two is the River of fire which proceeds from Jesus' left foot. For more detail, see below. The theme of the Last Judgment is found in the funeral and memorial hymnody of the Church, and is a major theme in the services during Great Lent. The second Sunday before the beginning of Great Lent is dedicated to the Last Judgment. It is also found in the hymns of the Octoechos used on Saturdays throughout the year. Amillennialism is common among some Protestant denominations such as the Lutheran, Reformed and Anglican churches. Many, but not all, partial preterists are amillennialists. Amillennialism declined in Protestant circles with the rise of Postmillennialism and the resurgence of Premillennialism in the 18th and 19th centuries, but it has regained prominence in the West after World War II. Lutherans do not believe in any sort of earthly millennial kingdom of Christ either before or after his second coming on the last day. On the last day, all the dead will be resurrected. Their souls will then be reunited with the same bodies they had before dying. The bodies will then be changed, those of the wicked to a state of everlasting shame and torment, those of the righteous to an everlasting state of celestial glory. After the resurrection of all the dead, and the change of those still living, all nations shall be gathered before Christ, and he will separate the righteous from the wicked. Christ will publicly judge all people by the testimony of their faith, the good works of the righteous in evidence of their faith, and the evil works of the wicked in evidence of their unbelief. He will judge in righteousness in the presence of all and men and angels, and his final judgement will be just damnation to everlasting punishment for the wicked and a gracious gift of life everlasting to the righteous. Particularly among those Protestant groups who adhere to a millennialist eschatology, the Last Judgment is said to be carried out before the Great White Throne by Jesus Christ to either eternal life or eternal consciousness in the lake of fire at the end of time. Salvation is granted by grace based on the individual's surrender and commitment to Jesus Christ. A second particular judgment they refer to as the Bema Seat judgement occurs after (or as) salvation is discerned when awards are granted based on works toward heavenly treasures. What happens after death and before the final judgment is hotly contested; some believe all people sleep in Sheol until the resurrection, others believe Christians dwell in Heaven and pagans wander the earth, and others consider the time to pass instantaneously. Nevertheless, the body is not fully redeemed until after Death is destroyed after the Great Tribulation. Protestant Millennialism falls into roughly two categories: Premillennialist (Christ's second coming precedes the millennium) and Postmillennialist (which sees Christ's second coming as occurring after the millennium). Dispensational premillennialism generally holds that Israel and the Church are separate. It also widely holds to the pretribulational return of Christ, which believes that Jesus will return before a seven-year Tribulation followed by an additional return of Christ with his saints. Although the Last Judgment is preached by a great part of Christian mainstream churches; the Esoteric Christian tradition—composed, among others, by the Essenes and Rosicrucians—the Spiritualist movement, Christian Science, and some liberal theologies reject the traditional conception of the Last Judgment as inconsistent with an all-just and loving God, in favor of some form of universal salvation. The Western Wisdom Teachings of the Rosicrucians teach that when the Day of Christ comes, marking the end of the current fifth or Aryan epoch, the human race will have to pass a final examination or last judgment, where, as in the Days of Noah, the chosen ones or pioneers, the sheep, will be separated from the goats or stragglers, by being carried forward into the next evolutionary period, inheriting the ethereal conditions of the New Galilee in the making. Nevertheless, it is emphasized that all beings of the human evolution will ultimately be saved in a distant future as they acquire a superior grade of consciousness and altruism. At the present period, the process of human evolution is conducted by means of successive rebirths in the physical world and the salvation is seen as being mentioned in Revelation 3:12 (KJV), which states "Him that overcometh will I make a pillar in the temple of my God and he shall go no more out". However, this western esoteric tradition states—like those who have had a near-death experience—that after the death of the physical body, at the end of each physical lifetime and after the life review period (which occurs before the silver cord is broken), it occurs a judgment, more akin to a Final Review or End Report over one's life, where the life of the subject is fully evaluated and scrutinized. This judgment is seen as being mentioned in Hebrews 9:27, which states that "it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment". In Islam, Yawm al-Qiyāmah (Arabic: ‎ "the Day of Resurrection") or Yawm ad-Din (Arabic: ‎ "the Day of Judgment") is believed to be God (Arabic: Allāh) final assessment of humanity. The sequence of events (according to the most commonly held belief) is the annihilation of all creatures, resurrection of the body, and the judgment of all sentient creatures. The exact time when these events will occur is unknown, however there are said to be major and minor signs which are to occur near the time of Qiyamat (End time). Many verses of the Qu'ran, especially the earlier ones, are dominated by the idea of the nearing of the day of resurrection. Belief in al-Qiyāmah is considered a fundamental tenet of faith by all Muslims.[4]. Belief in the day of Judgement is one of the six articles of faith. The trials and tribulations associated with it are detailed in both the Qur'an and the hadith, as well as in the commentaries of the Islamic expositors and scholarly authorities such as al-Ghazali, Ibn Kathir, Ibn Majah, Muhammad al-Bukhari, and Ibn Khuzaimah who explain them in detail. Every human, Muslim and non-Muslim alike, is believed to be held accountable for their deeds and are believed to be judged by God accordingly.[5] The importance of the 'last judgment' is underlined by the many references to it in the Qur'an and its many names. For example, it is also called "the Day of Reckoning",[6] "the Hour",[7][8] "the Last Day",[9] "Day of Judgment", "Day of the Reckoning". In Judaism, the day of judgment happens every year on Rosh Hashanah (a day which is also known as Yom HaDin, Judgment Day), therefore the belief in a last day of judgment for all mankind is disputed. Some Rabbis hold that there will be such a day following the resurrection of the dead. Others hold that there is no need for that because of Rosh Hashanah. While yet others hold that this accounting and judgment happens when one dies. Yet others hold that the last judgment only applies to the nations and not the Jewish people. In art, the Last Judgment is a common theme in medieval and renaissance religious iconography. Like most early iconographic innovations, its origins stem from Byzantine art, although it was a much less common subject than in the West during the Middle Ages. In Western Christianity, it is often the subject depicted in medieval cathedrals and churches, either outside on the central tympanum of the entrance, or inside on the (rear) west wall, so that the congregation attending church saw the image on either entering of leaving. In the 15th century it also appeared as the central section of a triptych on altarpieces, with the side panels showing heaven and hell. The usual composition has Christ seated high in the centre, flanked by angels and the Virgin Mary and John the Evangelist who are supplicating on behalf of the souls being judged (in what is called a Deesis group in Orthodoxy). Saint Michael is often shown, either weighing souls on scales or directing matters, and there may be a large crowd of saints, angels, and the saved around the central group. At the bottom of the composition a crowd of souls are shown, often with some rising from their graves. These are being sorted and directed by angels into the saved and the damned. Almost always the saved are on the viewer's left (so on the right hand of Christ), and the damned on the right. The saved are led up to heaven, often shown as a fortified gateway, while the damned are handed over to devils who herd them down into hell on the right; the composition therefore has a circular pattern of movement. Often the damned disappear into a Hellmouth, the mouth of a huge monster, an image of Anglo-Saxon origin. The damned often include figures of high rank, wearing crowns, mitres and often the Papal tiara during the lengthy periods when there were antipopes, or in Protestant depictions. There may be detailed depictions of the torments of the damned. The most famous Renaissance depiction is Michelangelo Buonarroti's The Last Judgment in the Sistine Chapel. Included in this fresco is his self-portrait, as St. Bartholomew's flayed skin. The image in Eastern Orthodox icons has a similar composition, but usually less space is devoted to Hell, and there are often a larger number of scenes; the Orthodox readiness to label figures with inscriptions often allows more complex compositions. There is more often a large group of saints around Christ (which may include animals), and the hetoimasia or "empty throne", containing a cross, is usually shown below Christ, often guarded by archangels; figures representing Adam and Eve may kneel below it or below Christ. A distinctive feature of the Orthodox composition, especially in Russian icons, is a large band leading like a chute from the feet of Christ down to Hell; this may resemble a striped snake or be a "river of Fire" coloured flame red. If it is shown as a snake, it attempts to bite Adam on the heel, but as he is protected by Christ is unsuccessful.
Terminator 2: Judgment Day is a 1991 American science fiction action film, the second installment of the Terminator franchise and the sequel to The Terminator (1984). Directed by James Cameron and written by Cameron and William Wisher, Jr., it stars Arnold Schwarzenegger, Linda Hamilton, Robert Patrick, and Edward Furlong. Terminator 2 follows Sarah Connor (Hamilton) and her son John (Furlong) as they are pursued by a new, more advanced Terminator, the liquid metal, shapeshifting T-1000 (Patrick), sent back in time to kill John and prevent him from becoming the leader of the human Resistance against the machines. An older, less advanced Terminator (Schwarzenegger) is also sent back in time to protect John. After a troubled pre-production characterized by legal disputes, Mario Kassar of Carolco Pictures emerged with the franchise's property rights in early 1990. This paved the way for the completion of the screenplay by the Cameron-led production team, and the October 1990 start of a shorter-than-originally-planned 186-day filming schedule. The production of Terminator 2 required an unprecedented budget of more than $94 million (1991 dollars), much of which was spent on filming and special effects. The film was released on July 3, 1991, in time for the U.S. Fourth of July weekend. Terminator 2, a box office and critical success, influenced popular culture and especially movies in the genres of action and science fiction. The film's visual effects saw many breakthroughs in computer-generated imagery, including the first use of natural human motion for a computer-generated character and the first partially computer-generated main character. It received many accolades, including four Academy Awards for makeup, sound mixing, sound editing, and visual effects. In 1995, eleven years after the events of The Terminator, John Connor (Edward Furlong) is ten years old and living in Los Angeles with foster parents. His mother Sarah Connor (Linda Hamilton) had been preparing him throughout his childhood for his future role as the leader of the human Resistance against Skynet, but was arrested after attempting to bomb a computer factory and remanded to a hospital for the criminally insane under the supervision of Dr. Silberman (Earl Boen). Skynet sends a new Terminator, a T-1000 (Robert Patrick), back in time to kill John. A prototype which is more advanced than the Terminator sent to kill Sarah in 1984, the T-1000 is composed of a "mimetic poly-alloy", a liquid metal that allows it to take the shape and appearance of anyone or anything it touches. The T-1000 arrives naked under a freeway, where he kills a policeman and steals his clothes. Though it cannot mimic complex machines such as guns or bombs, it can shape parts of itself into knives and stabbing weapons and can mimic the voice and appearance of humans. It assumes the identity of a police officer and goes in pursuit of John. Meanwhile, the future John Connor has sent back a reprogrammed T-800 Terminator (Arnold Schwarzenegger) to protect his younger self. The Terminator arrives naked as well, where he demands clothes from a biker, who refuses, causing a bar fight. He takes the man's motorcycle and starts his pursuit for John. The Terminator and the T-1000 converge on John in a shopping mall, and a chase ensues in which John and the Terminator escape by motorcycle. Fearing that the T-1000 will kill Sarah in order to get to him, John orders the Terminator to help free her. They encounter Sarah in the midst of her own escape attempt. She is initially terrified by the Terminator but accepts its assistance after it helps them to escape the T-1000. The Terminator informs John and Sarah about Skynet, the artificial intelligence that will initiate a nuclear war on "Judgment Day" and go on to create the machines that will hunt the remnants of humanity. Sarah learns that the man most directly responsible for Skynet's creation is Miles Dyson (Joe Morton), a Cyberdyne Systems engineer working on a revolutionary new microprocessor that will form the basis for Skynet. Sarah gathers weapons from an old friend and plans to flee with John to Mexico, but after having a horrific nightmare of a nuclear explosion she awakens and sets out to kill Miles Dyson to prevent "Judgment Day" from occurring. She wounds him at his home but finds herself unable to kill him in front of his family. She knows that killing him will prevent the war, but will only make things worse. John and the Terminator arrive and inform Miles of the consequences of his work and learn that much of his research has been reverse engineered from the CPU and the right arm of the previous Terminator sent after Sarah. Convincing him that these items and his designs must be destroyed, they break into the Cyberdyne building and retrieve the CPU and the arm. The police and the T-1000 arrive and Miles is shot, but stays behind to trigger a detonator that destroys his research. The Terminator encounters a SWAT team, where he wounds them and steals one of their vehicles. The van crashes on the freeway, injuring Sarah in the process. Meanwhile, the T-1000 takes over a helicopter and pursues John, Sarah, and the Terminator, catching up to them in a steel mill. The helicopter crashes into the same van, where the T-1000 steals a truck full of liquid nitrogen. In a climactic battle, the Terminator fires a grenade into the T-1000 and it falls into a vat of molten steel, where it is destroyed. John throws the components of the original Terminator into the vat as well. The Terminator then sacrifices itself, asking Sarah to lower it into the steel so that its technology cannot be used to create Skynet. John begs for the Terminator to stay, but there is nothing he could do. He says good-bye to John and Sarah, and is lowered into the vat, giving John a final thumbs up as it disappears. Sarah looks to the future with hope, believing that if a machine can learn the value of human life, humanity may not be doomed to self-destruction. The cast was rounded out with Jenette Goldstein and Xander Berkeley, who portray John's foster parents, Janelle and Todd Voight. Cástulo Guerra plays Sarah's friend, Enrique Salceda, who provides her with weapons. Danny Cooksey plays Tim, John's friend. S. Epatha Merkerson plays Tarissa Dyson, the wife of Miles Dyson. Michael Biehn returned to the series as Kyle Reese, a soldier from 2029, in a short appearance in Sarah's dream. Biehn's scene was not featured in the theatrical release of the film, but it was restored in extended versions of the film. Hamilton's then-twenty-month-old son Dalton plays her on-screen son in a dream sequence set in a playground. Talk of a potential sequel to The Terminator arose soon after the original's release, but several outstanding issues precluded such a production. There were technical setbacks regarding computer imagery, a vital aspect of the film that would be crucial in the creation of the T-1000 Terminator. The production of James Cameron's 1989 film The Abyss provided the proof of concept necessary to satisfactorily resolve the technical concerns. Perhaps more serious were the intellectual-property disputes between Hemdale Film Corporation, which owned the franchise and stymied efforts to produce a sequel, and Carolco Pictures. Given that Hemdale was then experiencing financial problems, Arnold Schwarzenegger urged Mario Kassar, head of Carolco, to bid for the rights: "I reminded Mario that this is something that we've been looking for four years, and that it should be him that should go all-out, no matter what it takes to make this deal." Carolco eventually paid Hemdale $5 million for the franchise in 1990, resolving the legal gridlock. The end of the legal disputes coincided with the willingness and availability of Cameron, Schwarzenegger and Linda Hamilton to participate in the film; Schwarzenegger, who portrayed the Terminator in the first film, commented: "I always felt we should continue the story of The Terminator, I told Jim that right after we finished the first film." He and Hamilton reprised their respective roles from the first Terminator film. After an extensive casting search, 12-year-old Edward Furlong was selected from hundreds of candidates to portray John Connor; Robert Patrick was chosen to play the T-1000 Terminator because his agility emphasized the disparity between the advanced T-1000 and Schwarzenegger's older T-800 (Cameron characterized the two as "a Porsche" and "a human Panzer tank" respectively). Patrick had previously appeared in the action feature Die Hard 2, but Furlong had no formal acting experience. Joe Morton was picked to portray Miles Dyson, a Cyberdyne scientist who helped develop the new microprocessor for the T-800 Terminators. Calling themselves T2 Productions, James and co-producers Stephanie Austin and B.J. Rack rented an office in North Hollywood, Los Angeles, before starting to assemble the film crew for Terminator 2. Adam Greenberg, who worked on The Terminator and Ghost (1990), became director of photography, while Joseph Nemec III, who had worked with Cameron on The Abyss, was tasked with production design. The team conducted a national search for a steel mill suitable for the film's climax, eventually selecting a dormant mill in Fontana, California, after weeks of negotiations. Locating a potential Cyberdyne building was more difficult, as the site was to host numerous stunts, shootouts, and explosions. An industrial park in Fremont, California, was eventually rented for the duration of the film's production. Cameron and William Wisher completed the 140-page screenplay draft on May 10, 1990, and by July 15, the first shooting draft had been distributed to the cast and crew; particulars of the technically detailed scripts were shrouded in secrecy. Both the six-week turnaround for the script and the film's accelerated production schedule were to enable a 1991 Fourth of July release. Principal photography of Terminator 2 spanned over 171 days between October 9, 1990, and March 28, 1991, during which the crew filmed at the Mojave Desert before visiting 20 different sites throughout California and New Mexico. These locations ran the gamut from the crowded Santa Monica Place shopping mall, where the two Terminators converged on John, to flood control channels in the San Fernando Valley, which played host to the chase between the Terminators and John; a river had to be redirected to allow filming on the otherwise wet channels. Cameron and his crew also filmed Terminator 2 at The Corral Bar and the Lake View Medical Center (known as Pescadero State Hospital for the Criminally Insane in the film), both located in Lakeview Terrace. The external shots of Cyberdyne Systems Corporation were filmed on location at an office building on the corner of Gateway Boulevard and Bayside Parkway in Fremont, California. Working with up to 1,000 crew members, the production team oversaw numerous stunts and chase sequences, the most notable of which took place on the Los Angeles–Long Beach Terminal Island Freeway, prior to Terminator 2s climax. Ten miles (16 km) of electric cables were laid to illuminate the night-time chase, which saw a full-scale helicopter crash, a sliding tanker, and other elaborate paraphernalia. Hamilton's twin sister, Leslie Hamilton Gearren, was used in some shots that required two Sarahs. She is the mirror image of Sarah in the scene where they open up the Terminator's head (deleted from the theatrical release), and in some of the shots as the T-1000 impersonated Sarah. Gearren is playing whichever "Sarah" is farthest from the camera, alternating between the real Sarah and the T-1000 based on camera position. Another set of twins, Don and Dan Stanton, were used to play the psychiatric hospital security guard and the T-1000 copying him. An unprecedented budget of $94 million (1991 dollars)—3.5 times the cost of the average film and approximately 15 times the $6.4 million budget of The Terminator—was reserved for Terminator 2. A significant proportion of this was for actor and film-crew salaries. According to The Daily Sentinel and The Daily Beast, Arnold Schwarzenegger was given a $11–12 million Gulfstream III business jet, while $5–6 million was allocated towards James Cameron's salary. The production itself, which included special effects and stunts, totalled $51 million. Despite the significant expenditure, the film had nearly recovered its budget prior to its release. Worldwide rights were sold for $65 million, video rights for $10 million, and television rights for $7 million. Terminator 2 made extensive use of computer-generated imagery (CGI) to vivify the main two Terminators. The use of such technology was the most ambitious since the 1982 science fiction film Tron, and would be integral to the critical success of the film. CGI was required particularly for the T-1000, a "mimetic poly-alloy" (liquid metal) structure, since the shapeshifting character can morph into almost anything it touches. Most of the key Terminator effects were provided by Industrial Light & Magic (ILM) for computer graphics and Stan Winston for practical effects. Creation of the visual effects took 35 people, including animators, computer scientists, technicians and artists, ten months to produce, for a total of 25 man-years. Despite the large amount of time spent, the CGI sequences only total five minutes of running time. Enlisted to produce articulated puppets and prosthetic effects was Stan Winston's studio, who was also responsible for the metal skeleton effects of the T-800. ILM's Visual Effects Supervisor, Dennis Muren, remarked, "We still have not lost the spirit of amazement when we see ... [the visual effects on the T-1000] coming up." Such was the role and creation of CGI that the visual-effects team was awarded the 1992 Academy Award for Best Visual Effects. For Sarah's nuclear nightmare scene, Robert and Dennis Skotak of 4-Ward Production constructed a cityscape of Los Angeles using large-scale miniature buildings and realistic roads and vehicles. The pair, after having studied actual footages of nuclear tests, then simulated the nuclear blast by using air mortars to knock over the cityscape, including the intricately built buildings. Terminator 2 had its worldwide premiere at the Cineplex Odeon Century Plaza Cinemas in Century City, Los Angeles, on July 1, 1991, attended by VIPs including Nicolas Cage, Christian Slater, Arnold Schwarzenegger and his wife Maria Shriver. Following its domestic release two days later, the film was progressively distributed to cinemas in Australia, Germany, the United Kingdom, Hong Kong, Spain, and at least ten other countries by the year's end. The film received a positive reception from critics, earning a score of 68 out of 100 from 16 critics on review aggregate website Metacritic and garnering 98% "certified fresh" rating from 44 critics—an average rating of 8.4 out of 10—on Rotten Tomatoes, whose assessment reads: "T2 features thrilling action sequences and eye-popping visual effects, but what takes this sci-fi/ action landmark to the next level is the depth of the human (and cyborg) characters." The Montreal Film Journal called it "one of the best crafted Hollywood action flicks." Screenwriting guru Syd Field lauded the plot of Terminator 2, saying, for example, "every scene sets up the next, like links in a chain of dramatic action." Roger Ebert, writing for the Chicago Sun-Times, who gave the film 3.5 stars out of a possible 4, complimented Schwarzenegger's performance, saying that "Schwarzenegger's genius as a movie star is to find roles that build on, rather than undermine, his physical and vocal characteristics." Hal Hinson, reviewer for The Washington Post, was also very positive in his review, writing that: "No one in the movies today can match Cameron's talent for this kind of hyperbolic, big-screen action. Cameron, who directed the first Terminator and Aliens, doesn't just slam us over the head with the action. In staging the movie's gigantic set pieces, he has an eye for both grandeur and beauty; he possesses that rare director's gift for transforming the objects he shoots so that we see, for example, the lyrical muscularity of an 18-wheel truck. Because of Cameron, the movie is the opposite of its Terminator character; it's a machine with a human heart." Halliwell's Film Guide rated the film as an improvement on its predecessor, giving it two stars out of four and describing it as a "thunderous, high-voltage action movie with dazzling special effects that provide a distraction from the often silly narrative." Writing for Time, Richard Corliss was far less pleased, stating that the film was "[a] humongous, visionary parable that intermittently enthralls and ultimately disappoints. T2 is half of a terrific movie—the wrong half." Opening in 2,274 theaters in the United States, Terminator 2 earned $54 million during its Fourth of July opening weekend, $3 million behind Batman (1989) during its opening five-day weekend. One theater chain owner was reported as saying "[b]ut nothing since Batman has created the frenzy for tickets we saw this weekend with Terminator. At virtually all our locations, we were selling out well in advance of showings, and the word-of-mouth buzz out there is just phenomenal." Elsewhere, the film grossed $3.4 million in Australia and $7.1 million in Germany during their opening weekends in September and October 1991, respectively. According to Box Office Mojo, the film's production costs was $102 million, which, at the time, was the highest ever. However, if adjusted for inflation, Cleopatra (1963), which cost $44 million when it was made in 1963, would have been $219 million in 1995 dollars. Terminator 2 was a box-office success, earning $204.8 million in the United States and Canada alone, and $519.8 million worldwide. It was the highest grossing film of 1991, beating Robin Hood: Prince of Thieves, and is TriStar Pictures' highest grossing film to date. The film is ranked 110 in box office earnings of all time in the U.S. and Canada, and 84 worldwide. The original Terminator grossed only $38 million in the U.S. in its theatrical run, making Terminator 2s 434 percent increase a record for a sequel. The movie was first released on DVD as a single disc in August 1997. Upon its release, the theatrical cut ran 139 minutes. On November 24, 1993, the Terminator 2: Judgment Day: Special Edition cut of the film was released to Laserdisc and VHS, containing 17 minutes of previously unseen footage including scenes with Michael Biehn reprising his role as Kyle Reese in a dream sequence. However, the normal version was released in 1992. The subsequent "Ultimate Edition" and "Extreme Edition" DVD releases also contain this version of the film. The Extreme Edition DVD has several DVD-ROM features, including Infiltration Unit Simulator and T2 FX Studio, an application where images of a person can be imported and morphed into a T-800 or T-1000, and Skynet Combat Chassis Designer, a program where viewers could build a fighting machine and be able to track progress online. The Extreme DVD also contains a WMV-HD theatrical edition of T2, where the film can be watched, for the first time, in Full HD 1080p format. In 2006, Lionsgate released a Blu-ray of the film that is presented in a slightly washed-out 1080p transfer and included no special features and a DTS 5.1 audio track from the DVDs instead of a lossless audio track. On May 19, 2009, Lionsgate re-released the film on Blu-ray with an enhanced and improved video transfer, as well as a THX certified DTS-Master Audio 6.1 audio. This "SkyNet Edition" also saw a limited collector's edition encased in an Endoskull. The limited collector's edition includes the 2009 Blu-ray, as well as the Extreme Edition and Ultimate Edition DVDs and a digital copy of the film. The film was adapted by Marvel Comics as a three issue miniseries, which was collected into a trade paperback. In the years following its release, several books based on the film were released, including: Malibu Comics , , IDW Comics , and by S.M. Stirling, and by Russell Blackford. In 1996, Cameron directed an attraction at Universal Studios Theme Parks, titled T2 3-D: Battle Across Time, that saw the return of Schwarzenegger, Hamilton, Patrick, and Furlong to their respective roles. Costing $60 million to produce, with a run time of only twelve minutes, it became the most expensive venture per minute in the history of film. The attraction opened in the Universal Studios Florida in mid-1996, with additional venues opening in the Universal Studios Hollywood in May 1999, and the Universal Studios Japan in March 2001. A series of seven games were created based on the film, made available for home consoles and arcade machines. The score by Brad Fiedel was commercially released as the Terminator 2: Judgment Day (Original Motion Picture Soundtrack) CD and cassette tape and contained twenty tracks with a runtime of 53 minutes. The score spent six weeks on the Billboard 200, reaching a peak of No. 70. Songs not included within the soundtrack In June 2001, the American Film Institute (AFI) ranked the film at number 77 on the AFI's 100 Years...100 Thrills, a list of films considered to be the most thrilling in film history. In 2003, the AFI released the AFI's 100 Years...100 Heroes and Villains, a list of the 100 greatest screen heroes and villains of all time. The Terminator, as portrayed by Schwarzenegger in Terminator 2: Judgment Day, was ranked at number 48 on the list of heroes, as well as at number 22 on the list of villains for its appearance in the first Terminator film. The character was the only entry to appear on both lists, though they are different characters based on the same model. In 2005, Schwarzenegger's famous quote "Hasta la vista, baby" was ranked at number 76 on the AFI's 100 Years...100 Movie Quotes best film quotes list. The film placed number 33 on Total Films 2006 list of The Top 100 Films of All Time. In 2008, the film was voted the eighth best science fiction film ever on AFI's 10 Top 10. Empire ranked the film number 35 on its list of The 500 Greatest Movies of All Time. Patrick cameos in character as the T-1000 in Wayne's World (1992) where he forces Wayne Campbell to pull his car over and asks if he has seen John Connor. Patrick also cameos as the T-1000 in the Schwarzenegger-starring Last Action Hero (1993), passing Schwarzenegger as he enters Los Angeles Police Department headquarters. In the same film—a universe where Schwarzenegger does not exist—Sylvester Stallone replaces Schwarzenegger in the Terminator 2 poster, having taken the role of the Terminator. In Hot Shots! Part Deux (1993), a caricature of Saddam Hussein is frozen, shattered, and reforms in a direct parody of the T-1000 from the final scene of Terminator 2. The film is also referenced multiple times in the animated series The Simpsons, including "Homer Loves Flanders" (1994), "Treehouse of Horror VI" (1995), "The Simpsons 138th Episode Spectacular" (1995), and "Day of the Jackanapes" (2001). The film is also parodied in the animated series American Dad, Bob's Burgers, and Archer.
Charles Henry "Chuck" Mosley (born December 26, 1959) is an American singer-songwriter and musician. Mosley was the front-man of the band Faith No More for their first two albums, We Care a Lot and Introduce Yourself. He was replaced by Mike Patton, under whose leadership the band enjoyed their greatest success. Mosley was born in Hollywood, California in December 1959, but raised in South Central Los Angeles and Venice. He was adopted at a very early age, as talked about in the Faith No More biography book, "The Real Story." Chuck first met Billy Gould in 1977, going to a The Zeros, Johnny Navotnee and The Bags show. He then went on to play keyboards in Billy's first band, The Animated, in 1979. In 1984 he joined Haircuts That Kill, a post-punk band from the San Francisco area, which lasted up until Mosley's joining of Faith No More. He joined Faith No More in 1985 replacing Courtney Love (Hole) who had a brief stint as lead singer. Mosley recorded two albums with FNM, but parted ways with the band in 1988 for a number of reasons, including creative differences with other members, and rumors of substance abuse. His departure made quite a stir, when he sued the band for publishing rights, in an attempt to clear his name of the accusations of substance abuse. In 1990 Mosley began a stint as lead singer in revered hardcore punk band Bad Brains. He performed at nearly sixty shows in the United States and Europe before leaving the band in January 1992. Mosley immediately went on to form a new band, Cement. They released two albums: Cement and Man with the Action Hair. Both albums were distributed by Dutch East India Trading (United States) and Rough Trade (Europe). The band toured both locations promoting their music. During the first week of what was to be a year-long tour for Man with the Action Hair, the band’s driver fell asleep at the wheel causing a major accident. Chuck spent a year recovering from a broken back, the tour was canceled, and the album was, subsequently, shelved. Mosley relocated to Cleveland, Ohio in March 1996. He has spent the last several years writing and compiling new material while raising his two daughters Sophie and Erica, and working as a chef in various restaurants. Throughout his apparent hiatus, Chuck has continued to be cited as a major influence by prevalent groups such as Korn, Disturbed, Limp Bizkit, and others. He was featured in Billboard Magazine in spite of the fact that he has not released a record in several years. He then announced the album title ("Will Rap Over Hard Rock For Food") and that it would be released under the name of "V.U.A. (Vanduls Ugainst Alliteracy)". The band name was later extended to include Chuck's name. His original recording of “We Care a Lot” remains as popular and relevant as ever][. It has been featured as the theme song for the Discovery Channel show Dirty Jobs as well as in the major motion pictures Grosse Pointe Blank and Bio-Dome, and it has also been used to introduce several major league relief pitchers due to the refrain, "it's a dirty job, but someone's gotta do it." He retains an extremely loyal “cult” following amongst fans, both in the United States and overseas][. Chuck's LP Will Rap Over Hard Rock For Food was released on August 11, 2009 by Reversed Image Unlimited. Guest appearances on the LP include Jonathan Davis (Korn), John 5 (Marilyn Manson, Rob Zombie), Michael Cartellone (Lynyrd Skynyrd), Roddy Bottum, (Faith No More), (Imperial Teen), and Reversed Image label mate Leah Lou. On April 14, 2010, Mosley made a surprise appearance on stage at a Faith No More concert in San Francisco, the first time since 1988 that he has performed with the band. Chuck performed the songs "As the Worm Turns", "Death March", "We Care A Lot", and "Mark Bowen" on his own with the band, and was joined by Mike Patton during the final encore to perform a duet on "Introduce Yourself". November 17, 2012: Chuck has re-released his album, Will Rap Over Hard Rock For Food, and is working on an autobiography book. The book is as-yet untitled, and it is being ghostwritten by Douglas Esper. Chuck has started a website, but for now it just forwards to his facebook page. He is searching for a new booking agent/management, and plans to begin recording new material ASAP. On his merch page, Chuck is offering one of his dreads for sale along with autographed merch and cheap downloads of his latest music. He also announced plans to offer a collection of demos for free/donation shortly.
The Care Bears are a group of characters created by the U.S. greeting card company American Greetings in 1981. The title characters originally appeared in card artwork by Elena Kucharik, before branching out into various media and merchandise. The franchise launched in 1982 with ten title characters, and in 1984 added several more characters known as the Care Bear Cousins.:52 Each of the Care Bears and Care Bear Cousins has a "tummy symbol"—a picture or pattern that indicates the role or speciality of the character bearing it. Beginning with Care Bears: Oopsy Does It!, "tummy symbols" are sometimes referred to as "belly badges." All Care Bears are shown from oldest to youngest. These Care Bears were the only ones shown in greeting cards. Bedtime Bear is a very sleepy bear. He helps everyone get a good night's sleep and have sweet dreams and often talks with a yawning voice. He is the main character in the episode "Bedtime In Care-a-Lot", when every other Care Bear who works hard is put to sleep, he has an idea to wake them all up by playing Shreeky's loud scream with a tape recorder using the microphone. He is also found sleeping in a barrel by the blond twins named Sarah and Sally who argue obviously. In Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-lot, he wears a blue & yellow night cap and white slippers. He very rarely gets wide awake throughout the series. He may look lazy at daytime. However, he is fully awake at night time where he totes a lantern and functions as Care-a-Lot's night watch bear, making sure everyone is sleeping when they should. He is aqua blue and his tummy symbol is a blue, sleeping crescent moon with a yellow hanging star. He is the oldest. Birthday Bear wants everyone to have happy birthdays and loves birthday parties and games. In the episode called "Birthday", he settles a birthday with Lotsa Heart Elephant for a boy named Matt who is initially jealous because his mother has told him, he would have a sister. In "The Forest Of Misfortune", Birthday Bear predicts that there will be a birthday party in the Forest of Feelings and towards the end, it is accepted. His main appearance is "Birthday Bear's Blues" when he goes out to help a rich boy named Charles who thinks his friends have forgotten his birthday. He is golden yellow and his tummy symbol is a cupcake with a candle. He returns in Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot. Cheer Bear is a very happy and perky bear, who helps everyone be their happiest and cheer up those who are unhappy. She appears in some episodes of the first two TV series. In the episode called "The Last Laugh", she is depressed that she has lost hope giving up trying to cheer Grumpy Bear up. Towards the end, Swift Heart Rabbit convinces her that "when you care about someone, you don't give up." In "Drab City", she turns negative and part of her symbol is either disappearing or turning gray because of the grayscale world. The Care Bear Stare/Cousin Call heals her with color. In the later Nelvana episodes she sports a ponytail with bangs and wears a yellow jacket with short puffed sleeves and a golden yellow bracelet on her wrist. According to "The Gift Of Caring", she helps a girl named Carol make the Care Baskets in time to give to her friends in the hospital. In Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot, she has a short ponytail with a rainbow ribbon tied in a bow, and is the current leader of the Care Bears. She is optimistic, outgoing and intelligent. Although not as girly as she looks, she is a mother-like character to the other Care Bears. Cheer Bear is one of the main characters in Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot. In this series, everything about Cheer Bear is bright, colorful, and happy, including her cottage in the Enchanted Garden. She's Care-a-Lot's cheerleader, and she's always ready to say a cheer or throw a party. Her rainbow belly badge brings joy and lets her shoot magical rainbows, which have the power to guide the bears—and even to wrap up Beastly in a rain "bow". She is light pink and her tummy symbol is a rainbow. Friend Bear is a kind and friendly bear who shows what it means to be a good friend by learning that the best way to make friends, is just be yourself. She is orange with two interwined smiling flowers. When Secret Bear is with her during their Caring Missions in the 1980s films, she translates her body language and interprets what she says. She is the only Care Bear to appear in the book that is titled "Trouble With Timothy". In "Adventures in Care-a-Lot", she has bangs and wears a flower clip that matches her symbol. Funshine Bear loves to play and tell jokes all the time, but sometimes forgets that there are times in life you must be serious. She is sunshine yellow and her tummy symbol is a smiling sun. In Adventures in Care-a-Lot, she wears a red baseball cap with her symbol on it, and has lost her jokester persona, as it was replaced with her new caring mission of making up games and other fun things. She is determined and active, often gets hooked on an idea and rarely lets go. She is somewhat overconfident, which sometimes gets her into trouble. Funshine Bear is one of the main characters in Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot. In this series, Funshine Bear is a male loves to play and lives for thrills. He always makes a splash, whether he's acing an extreme sport, driving his tricked-out ATV, or hanging with his friends at his home on Adventure Beach, Care-a-Lot's fun zone. His sun belly badge can find light at the darkest hour, provide solar power, or shine a spotlight on a star performer. Good Luck Bear is all about spreading good luck for everyone. He can also be inspirational for St. Patrick's Day. He is deep green and his tummy symbol is a four leaf clover with heart-shaped petals. In the first TV series he has an Irish accent, but in the rest of the series, he has an American accent. In the first film, he helps Grumpy Bear fix the Rainbow Rescue Beam just in time for the machine to work. He also can fly in a clover he holds on to in his film about Wonderland. He has a crush on Polite Panda, but he likes Wish Bear too. He also rides on a clover helicopter in the beginning of Journey to Joke-a-lot and some scenes from the Big Wish Movie. He appears in Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot, once again having an Irish accent. Grumpy Bear shows that while it's okay to be grumpy sometimes, it is also silly to let grumpiness go too far. He has also been the inventor/mechanic for the rest of the Care Bears. Anytime any other Care Bear calls him in the middle of his work, he accidentally bumps his head. He is cynical, surly, and rarely happy, hence his name, but he does value his friends and smiles on special occasions. In the first TV series, he talks in a deeper voice and in The Care Bears Adventure in Wonderland, he's shown to be extremely hungry that he wants to eat food. He has a soft spot for Share Bear in Adventures in Care-a-Lot. He is dusty blue with a raincloud with raindrops and hearts as his tummy symbol. Grumpy Bear is one of the main characters in Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot. In this series, Grumpy Bear can always be found in his Care-a-Van in the Moody Mountains. Deep down, the grouchiest bear in Care-a-Lot really does care, and he understands a child's glum moments. He's also very funny and crafty, and one thing that makes him happy is food! His Care-y-All bag holds anything and everything, and his rain cloud belly badge can control weather, which comes in handy. Love-a-Lot Bear is a bear who helps spread love and help it along wherever she goes. Her tummy symbol (later called a Belly Badge) is a red heart with a pink outline and a pink heart with a yellow outline intertwined. As a main character, she is the very first Care Bear to find the Cloud Worm as seen in the episode titled "The Cloud Worm" and is very capable of reading fortunes as seen in the episode called "The Forest Of Misfortune". She also appears in the books that are published in the 2000s and titled "Love Is All Around", "Special Delivery" and "What Makes You Happy?" In "Special Delivery", she finds an idea of her own to give Tenderheart a present. In Adventures in Care-a-Lot, she has a straight ponytail, wears a heart hairclip that matches her Belly Badge with no outlines and also wears a purple scarf. Also when she speaks, she inserts the word "love" into almost every sentence, hence her name. She is now included in her new TV series called Welcome to Care-a-Lot as one of the minor characters. Tenderheart Bear helps everyone show and express their feelings and helps his fellow Care Bears be the most caring they can be. His fur color is originally brown and later on orange. His tummy symbol (later called a Belly Badge) is a red heart with a pink outline. In the 1980s movies and cartoons he was the leader of the Care Bears (that was later carried over to Cheer Bear) and is used in the main Care Bears logo.

Secret Bear is a later addition to the Care Bears family and acts as a mime to the other members. He keeps everything a secret, although there sometimes comes a circumstance in which he needs to communicate a message to the other bears, in which case he performs a hilarious display of charades and pantomime to get his message across. Of course, this rarely works, and as a result he ends up having to bite the bullet and whisper into another bear's ear what he was trying to say. With only occasional exceptions, he will only tell secrets to his partner, Friend Bear. Secret Bear was recently remodeled and can speak. In Care Bears: Welcome to Care-a-Lot, Secret usually whispers when she talks, due to her secretive personality, and is usually seen with Thanks-A-Lot Bear.

She shows that, through her symbol, sharing is caring. Her fur color is purple. Originally, Share Bear's tummy symbol was a pink heart-sprinkled ice cream soda with two straws. In 2002, it was changed to two heart-shaped lollipops (one pink with a blue heart and stick, the other blue with a pink heart and stick), on the grounds that sharing milkshakes and smoothies can spread germs according to Play-Along-Toys. The decision was made after a Meningitis outbreak in the U.S. the previous year. In the TV series Care Bears: Adventures in Care-a-Lot, she has short curly hair tied up with a pink clip and carries a pink purse full of lollipops to share with her fellow Care Bears.

In journalism, a human interest story is a feature story that discusses a person or people in an emotional way. It presents people and their problems, concerns, or achievements in a way that brings about interest, sympathy or motivation in the reader or viewer.

Human interest stories may be "the story behind the story" about an event, organization, or otherwise faceless historical happening, such as about the life of an individual soldier during wartime, an interview with a survivor of a natural disaster, a random act of kindness or profile of someone known for a career achievement.
