A musician is a person who plays a musical instrument or is musically talented. Anyone who composes, conducts, or performs music is referred to as a musician. A musician who plays a musical instrument is known as an instrumentalist. Musicians can specialize in any musical style, some musicians play in a variety of different styles depending on cultures and background. Examples of a musician's possible skills include performing, singing, producing, composing and the orchestration of music. In the Middle Ages, instrumental musicians performed with soft ensembles inside and loud instruments outdoors. Many European musicians of this time catered to the Roman Catholic Church, they provided arrangements structured around Gregorian chant structure and Masses from church texts. Notable musicians Phillipe de Vitry Guillaume Dufay Guillaume de Machaut Hildegard of Bingen John Jenkins Beatritz de Dia Tyagaraja Purandara Dasa Bhimsen Joshi Bismillah Khan A. R. RAHMAN Renaissance musicians produced music that could be played during masses in churches and important chapels.
Vocal pieces were in Latin—the language of church texts of the time—and were Church-polyphonic or "made up of several simultaneous melodies." By the end of the 16th century, patronage split among many areas: the Catholic Church, Protestant churches, royal courts, wealthy amateurs, music printing—all provided income sources for composers. Notable musicians Giovanni Palestrina Giovanni Gabrieli Thomas Tallis Claudio Monteverdi Leonardo da Vinci The Baroque period introduced heavy use of counterpoint and basso continuo characteristics. Vocal and instrumental "color" became more important compared with the Renaissance style of music, emphasized much of the volume and pace of each piece. Notable musicians George Frideric Handel Johann Sebastian Bach Antonio Vivaldi Classical music was created by musicians who lived during a time of a rising middle class. Many middle-class inhabitants of France at the time lived under long-time absolute monarchies; because of this, much of the music was performed in environments that were more constrained compared with the flourishing times of the Renaissance and Baroque eras.
Notable musicians Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart Joseph Haydn Ludwig Van Beethoven The foundation of Romantic period music coincides with what is called the age of revolutions, an age of upheavals in political, economic and military traditions. This age included the initial transformations of the Industrial Revolution. A revolutionary energy was at the core of Romanticism, which quite consciously set out to transform not only the theory and practice of poetry and art, but the common perception of the world; some major Romantic Period precepts survive, still affect modern culture. Notable musicians Ludwig van Beethoven Frédéric Chopin Franz Schubert Niccolò Paganini Franz Liszt Charles-Valentin Alkan Richard Wagner Pyotr Ilyich Tchaikovsky Johannes Brahms Johann Strauss II The world transitioned from 19th-century Romanticism to 20th century Modernism, bringing major musical changes. In 20th-century music and musicians rejected the emotion-dominated Romantic period, strove to represent the world the way they perceived it.
Musicians wrote to be"... objective. While past eras concentrated on spirituality, this new period placed emphasis on physicality and things that were concrete."The advent of audio recording and mass media in the 20th century caused a boom of all kinds of music—pop, dance, folk and all forms of classical music. Musicians can experience a number of health problems related to the practice and performance of music; these can include tinnitus and noise-induced hearing loss, which occurs and over a long period of time, most musicians do not seek help until they start to experience secondary symptoms such as tinnitus, distortion of sounds and hyperacusis. In addition, musicians are at increased risk for both musculoskeletal and vocal health problems when producing high sound levels on musical instruments. Increased biomechanical demands, whether at the hands, embouchure, or vocal cords, elevates the risks for occupational health problems like tendonitis, carpal tunnel, rupture of facial muscles, vocal cord malfunction.

An actor is a person who portrays a character in a performance. The actor performs "in the flesh" in the traditional medium of the theatre or in modern media such as film and television; the analogous Greek term is ὑποκριτής "one who answers". The actor's interpretation of their role—the art of acting—pertains to the role played, whether based on a real person or fictional character. Interpretation occurs when the actor is "playing themselves", as in some forms of experimental performance art. In ancient Greece and Rome, the medieval world, the time of William Shakespeare, only men could become actors, women's roles were played by men or boys. After the English Restoration of 1660, women began to appear on stage in England. In modern times in pantomime and some operas, women play the roles of boys or young men. After 1660 in England, when women first started to appear on stage, the terms actor or actress were used interchangeably for female performers, but influenced by the French actrice, actress became the used term for women in theater and film.
The etymology is a simple derivation from actor with -ess added. When referring to groups of performers of both sexes, actors is preferred. Actor is used before the full name of a performer as a gender-specific term. Within the profession, the re-adoption of the neutral term dates to the post-war period of the 1950 and'60s, when the contributions of women to cultural life in general were being reviewed; when The Observer and The Guardian published their new joint style guide in 2010, it stated "Use for both male and female actors. The guide's authors stated that "actress comes into the same category as authoress, manageress,'lady doctor','male nurse' and similar obsolete terms that date from a time when professions were the preserve of one sex.". "As Whoopi Goldberg put it in an interview with the paper:'An actress can only play a woman. I'm an actor – I can play anything.'" The UK performers' union Equity has no policy on the use of "actor" or "actress". An Equity spokesperson said that the union does not believe that there is a consensus on the matter and stated that the "...subject divides the profession".
In 2009, the Los Angeles Times stated that "Actress" remains the common term used in major acting awards given to female recipients. With regard to the cinema of the United States, the gender-neutral term "player" was common in film in the silent film era and the early days of the Motion Picture Production Code, but in the 2000s in a film context, it is deemed archaic. However, "player" remains in use in the theatre incorporated into the name of a theatre group or company, such as the American Players, the East West Players, etc. Actors in improvisational theatre may be referred to as "players". In 2015, Forbes reported that "...just 21 of the 100 top-grossing films of 2014 featured a female lead or co-lead, while only 28.1% of characters in 100 top-grossing films were female...". "In the U. S. there is an "industry-wide in salaries of all scales. On average, white women get paid 78 cents to every dollar a white man makes, while Hispanic women earn 56 cents to a white male's dollar, Black women 64 cents and Native American women just 59 cents to that."
Forbes' analysis of US acting salaries in 2013 determined that the "...men on Forbes' list of top-paid actors for that year made 21/2 times as much money as the top-paid actresses. That means that Hollywood's best-compensated actresses made just 40 cents for every dollar that the best-compensated men made." The first recorded case of a performing actor occurred in 534 BC when the Greek performer Thespis stepped onto the stage at the Theatre Dionysus to become the first known person to speak words as a character in a play or story. Prior to Thespis' act, Grecian stories were only expressed in song, in third person narrative. In honor of Thespis, actors are called Thespians; the male actors in the theatre of ancient Greece performed in three types of drama: tragedy and the satyr play. Western theatre developed and expanded under the Romans; the theatre of ancient Rome was a thriving and diverse art form, ranging from festival performances of street theatre, nude dancing, acrobatics, to the staging of situation comedies, to high-style, verbally elaborate tragedies.
As the Western Roman Empire fell into decay through the 4th and 5th centuries, the seat of Roman power shifted to Constantinople and the Byzantine Empire. Records show that mime, scenes or recitations from tragedies and comedies and other entertainments were popular. From the 5th century, Western Europe was plunged into a period of general disorder. Small nomadic bands of actors traveled around Europe throughout the period, performing wherever they could find an audience. Traditionally, actors were not of high status. Early Middle Ages actors were denounced by the Church during the Dark Ages, as they were viewed as dangerous and pagan. In many parts of Europe, traditional beliefs of the region and time period meant actors could not receive a Christian burial. In the Early Middle Ages, churches in Europe began staging dramatized versions of biblical events. By the middle of the 11th century, liturgical drama had spread from Russia to Scandinavia
Chelsea Lately was an American late night comedy talk show created by Steven Brody Stevens and hosted by comedian Chelsea Handler, broadcast on E!. The show debuted on July 16, 2007, was produced by Handler's production company, Borderline Amazing Productions, it was taped at Universal Studios Stage 1 in California. In American markets, the show aired at 11:00 p.m. Eastern and 8:00 p.m. Pacific time but was recorded at 3:30 p.m. PT the same day. On November 15, 2011, it was announced that the show's run had been extended through 2014. Handler's manager, Irving Azoff, stated that Handler would leave E! when her contract expired that year, thus ending Chelsea Lately. The final episode of Chelsea Lately aired on August 26, 2014. Handler starred on The Chelsea Handler Show, a sketch comedy show, that aired on E! in 2006. In 2007, she was approached to host her own late night talk show while she was dating the head of Comcast, but stated she was skeptical of the idea of her own show. Chelsea Lately premiered on July 17, 2007, at 11:30 p.m.
On October 15, 2012, Chelsea Lately relocated from the Westside Media Center Studios in West Los Angeles, a facility used by E! Sister network G4 to record Attack of the Show; that set was adapted to Chelsea Lately with only background changes and the addition of audience seating. The show's new set was at Stage 1 at Universal Studios Hollywood, used by The Tonight Show with Conan O'Brien during its short seven-month run; when the series moved to a new studio, the opening theme was changed to a new version composed by Pharrell Williams. The series had one spin-off, After Lately, a behind-the-scenes mockumentary, which premiered on March 6, 2011. Chelsea Lately was presented in a half-hour format, was broadcast Monday through Friday at 11:00 p.m ET/PT, although the Friday show was a re-run. Chelsea Lately opens cold and Handler performed a short stand-up monologue; the routine was focused on a topic from pop culture or current events, sometimes included a video clip or other visual aid. Over the opening credits, the announcer presented the topics of discussion and the show's guest makes a comment about something irrelevant.
After the open, Handler introduced the round table panel of three guests consisting of some combination of comedians, actors, or staff members. She lastly introduces the show regular, her assistant Chuy Bravo who sat in his own chair near the edge of the studio's stage. Handler discussed the goings on in pop culture with the round table members including Chuy whose comments are always one-liner jokes. After the round table ends, if there is a sketch in the episode, it was shown next. After returning from a commercial break, Handler interviewed a celebrity guest for about six minutes each show; the show closed with either another short monologue or with a small segment like "Fat Baby" with pictures shown for comedic value. Handler and Chuy usually interacted with the audience as the closing credits and music plays; as of 2011, Chelsea Lately averaged 960,000 viewers per episode and attracted more women aged 18 to 34 than The Late Late Show with Craig Ferguson and Last Call with Carson Daly. As of October 2011, the highest-rated episode of Chelsea Lately garnered 1.8 million viewers: this was the October 10, 2011, episode hosted by Ross Mathews featuring Kendra Wilkinson and Hank Baskett, following the Kardashian wedding special.
It was announced on August 6, 2013, that Lindsay Lohan's guest host appearance on Chelsea Lately became the most watched episode since October 2012 by acquiring 890,000 total viewers. For January–October 2013, Chelsea Lately attracted $30.3 million in advertising for an audience whose median age was 42.8. From 2012 to 2013, viewership decreased from 613,000 to 571,000; the live hour-long series finale aired August 26, 2014, was viewed by 1.003 million viewers for a 0.4 share in the 18-49 demographic. Due to sickness, injury or holidays, Handler has been unable to host some episodes, calling for guest hosts to stand in. In the past, frequent "round table" panelists Ross Mathews, Josh Wolf and Fortune Feimster have guest-hosted, with Mathews receiving positive reviews. Since July 2012, there have been several celebrity guest hosts during various episodes: Comedian/actor Wanda Sykes guest-hosted on July 30, 2012, while Handler was in London. Comedic actor Kevin Hart guest-hosted on August 1, 2012, while Handler was in London.
Actor/comedian Dax Shepard guest-hosted on August 2012, while Handler was in London. Australian comedic actress Rebel Wilson guest-hosted on September 7, 2012. Wilson's time as guest host was not due to Handler's unavailability to shoot the episode, but rather at Wilson's request to host. Handler was the celebrity guest interviewed by Wilson on this episode; as part of the show's "Celebrity Guest Host Week", the first week of December 2012 had episodes guest-hosted by television personality Amanda De Cadenet, actress/singer Kristin Chenoweth, comedic actress Casey Wilson, musician Dave Grohl. In February 2013, Grohl returned to host for a week; the three Kardashian sisters, Kourtney and Khloé, their mother Kris Jenner guest hosted on April 8, 2013. This was a planned event, though it's unclear if it was arranged by Handler and the Kardashians or by the mother network where they all work. Khloé has since returned on other occasions to guest host the show. Actress Lindsay Lohan guest-hosted on August 5, 2013, only six days after being released from her court-ordered 90-day incarceration period.
Actresses Gabourey Sidibe and Mary McCormack have gues

All That is an American sketch comedy television series created by Brian Robbins and Mike Tollin. The series aired on Nickelodeon from April 16, 1994 to October 22, 2005, lasting ten seasons, was produced by Tollin/Robbins Productions; the pilot episode was shown as a special "sneak peek", with the show debuting a regular series on December 24, 1994. The series features original short comedic sketches and weekly musical guests aimed toward a young audience, its sketches parody contemporary culture and are performed by a large and varying cast of child and teen actors. Early episodes were taped at Nickelodeon Studios at Universal Orlando Resort, but moved to Hollywood at the Nickelodeon on Sunset theatre, where other Nickelodeon shows such as The Amanda Show, Kenan & Kel, Drake & Josh were filmed. In 2000, after six seasons, the show was put on retooled. Four more seasons were produced before the show was cancelled. On April 23, 2005, Nickelodeon celebrated the tenth anniversary of All That; the special reunited cast members from both the original and relaunch eras of the show and several other special guest stars in a one-hour event.
All That went on to become a fixture on Nickelodeon for over a decade, has received acclaim for its diverse cast and impact on children's television. The series has spun off several members of the cast in their own Nickelodeon television series with varying levels of success, it has been marketed in other ways, including an audio recording, books, a feature film, festival tour, numerous reunions and specials celebrating the legacy of All That. In 2019, the current president of Nickelodeon, announced a revival of the series with original cast member Kenan Thompson serving as executive producer, with Kel Mitchell confirmed in the same role. See also: history of All That by season: 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10Brian Robbins and Mike Tollin created the show, the head writer was Dan Schneider who became the showrunner of the series in the third season. All That marked the beginning of Schneider's prolific career in creating and writing hit television series for young audiences; the New York Times, in separate articles, referred to Dan Schneider as "the Norman Lear of children's television" and "the master of a television genre".
In 1986, Robbins and Schneider met while working on Head of the Class. Becoming close friends, the two performers both shared a mutual interest in writing coming together to write and pitch an episode to the show's producers just to see if they could do it. To their amazement the producers bought it, their episode: Will the Real Arvid Engen Please Stand Up aired during the show's second season. Following the success of Head of the Class and Schneider were asked to co-host the second annual Kids Choice Awards in 1988 alongside Tony Danza and Debbie Gibson. Although unaware of the fledgling Nickelodeon cable channel before the invitation to host was brought to them, the two agreed; the award ceremony that year was produced by Albie Hecht, with whom Robbins and Schneider struck up a friendship behind the scenes. Their friendship continued after the awards and Hecht suggested they develop something for Nickelodeon. Robbins and Schneider declined his offer as they were still under contract with ABC, at the time.
In 1991, Head of the Class ended its run and Robbins started a production company with producer friend Tollin, aptly named Tollin/Robbins Productions. The company produced several small budget sport documentaries. Hecht, now Head of Development for Nickelodeon, contacted them and asked them to film a project for the network; the half-hour documentary they made featured the network's game show hosts Phil Moore and Mike O'Malley as co-hosts of a comedy tour as they drove around to different cities to perform. Since their schedule only permitted for two days of filming, Tollin/Robbins had to make the entire show appear as if they had toured around the country. Impressed with the final product, Hecht met with Robbins to discuss developing a new show for the network in 1993. Asking Robbins if there was any type of show that he would be interested in making, he responded with the idea of creating a kid-version of Saturday Night Live. Bringing in Schneider and Tollin to help develop the show, the three were influenced by classic sketch shows such as The Carol Burnett Show, You Can't Do That on Television and Laugh In, began to flesh out a rough idea of the show's format.
Once greenlit, Robbins and Tollin decided against writing the Pilot episode and instead chose to compile the cast first. In television the Pilot is written first and the cast is assembled later. However, the three believed it was crucial to find the right child actors first and tailor to their strengths. With Hecht's blessing, a nationwide talent search for child and teen actors was launched that would last for several months. Angelique Bates, Lori Beth Denberg, Katrina Johnson, Kel Mitchell, Alisa Reyes, Josh Server, Kenan Thompson were hired; when I first got involved, it was kind of funny. My mom had me in a talent show, I was one of the winners. Had his friend there, the one that got me on.... The process itself was, oh my gosh. We did 10 auditions. I thought, they had us doing improv, all kinds of stuff. I went in dressed as Urkel. I was doing character voices. I had the glasses, I had everything. You name it, I had it. I got call
Arkansas is a state in the southern region of the United States, home to over 3 million people as of 2018. Its name is of Siouan derivation from the language of the Osage denoting their related kin, the Quapaw Indians; the state's diverse geography ranges from the mountainous regions of the Ozark and the Ouachita Mountains, which make up the U. S. Interior Highlands, to the densely forested land in the south known as the Arkansas Timberlands, to the eastern lowlands along the Mississippi River and the Arkansas Delta. Arkansas is the 33rd most populous of the 50 United States; the capital and most populous city is Little Rock, located in the central portion of the state, a hub for transportation, business and government. The northwestern corner of the state, such as the Fayetteville–Springdale–Rogers Metropolitan Area and Fort Smith metropolitan area, is a population and economic center; the largest city in the state's eastern part is Jonesboro. The largest city in the state's southeastern part is Pine Bluff.
The Territory of Arkansas was admitted to the Union as the 25th state on June 15, 1836. In 1861, Arkansas withdrew from the United States and joined the Confederate States of America during the Civil War. On returning to the Union in 1868, the state continued to suffer due to its earlier reliance on slavery and the plantation economy, causing the state to fall behind economically and socially. White rural interests continued to dominate the state's politics until the civil rights movement. Arkansas began to diversify its economy following World War II and relies on its service industry, poultry, tourism and rice; the culture of Arkansas is observable in museums, novels, television shows and athletic venues across the state. People such as politician and educational advocate William Fulbright; the name Arkansas was applied to the Arkansas River and derives from a French term, the plural term for Quapaws, a Dhegiha Siouan-speaking Native American people who settled in Arkansas around the 13th century.
This comes from an Algonquian term, /akansa/, for the Quapaws, is also the root term for Kansas. The name has been spelled in a variety of fashions. In 1881, the pronunciation of Arkansas with the final "s" being silent was made official by an act of the state legislature after a dispute arose between Arkansas's two U. S. senators as one favored the pronunciation as AR-kən-saw while the other favored ar-KAN-zəs. In 2007, the state legislature passed a non-binding resolution declaring that the possessive form of the state's name is Arkansas's, followed by the state government. Arkansas borders Louisiana to the south, Texas to the southwest, Oklahoma to the west, Missouri to the north, Tennessee and Mississippi to the east; the United States Census Bureau classifies Arkansas as a southern state, sub-categorized among the West South Central States. The Mississippi River forms most of Arkansas's eastern border, except in Clay and Greene, counties where the St. Francis River forms the western boundary of the Missouri Bootheel, in many places where the channel of the Mississippi has meandered from its original 1836 course.
Arkansas can be split into two halves, the highlands in the northwest half and the lowlands of the southeastern half. The highlands are part of the Southern Interior Highlands, including The Ozarks and the Ouachita Mountains; the southern lowlands include the Arkansas Delta. This dual split can yield to general regions named northwest, northeast, southeast, or central Arkansas; these directionally named regions are broad and not defined along county lines. Arkansas has seven distinct natural regions: the Ozark Mountains, Ouachita Mountains, Arkansas River Valley, Gulf Coastal Plain, Crowley's Ridge, the Arkansas Delta, with Central Arkansas sometimes included as a blend of multiple regions; the southeastern part of Arkansas along the Mississippi Alluvial Plain is sometimes called the Arkansas Delta. This region is a flat landscape of rich alluvial soils formed by repeated flooding of the adjacent Mississippi. Farther away from the river, in the southeast portion of the state, the Grand Prairie consists of a more undulating landscape.
Both are fertile agricultural areas. The Delta region is bisected by a geological formation known as Crowley's Ridge. A narrow band of rolling hills, Crowley's Ridge rises from 250 to 500 feet above the surrounding alluvial plain and underlies many of the major towns of eastern Arkansas. Northwest Arkansas is part of the Ozark Plateau including the Ozark Mountains, to the south are the Ouachita Mountains, these regions are divided by the Arkansas River; these mountain ranges are part of the U. S. Interior Highlands region, the only major mountainous region between the Rocky Mountains and the Appalachian Mountains; the highest point in the state is Mount Magazine in the Ouachita Mountains, which rises to 2,753 feet above sea level. Arkansas has many rivers and reservoirs within or along its borders. Major tributaries of the Mississippi River include the Arkansas River, the White River, the St. Francis River; the Arkansas is fed by the Mulberry River and the Fou
Janky Promoters is a 2009 comedy film, re-teaming Ice Cube and Mike Epps who play as "janky" promoters who book rapper Young Jeezy to play at their concert, only to fail at doing it the right way and thus getting into more trouble than they bargained for. The film begins with a flashforward to a scene in the movie in which Russell Redds and JellyRoll are running out of a concert being chased by an angry mob and shot at as they drive off in Redds' car; the plot starts off with Russell Redds coming home late and sneaking into his wife's purse to get her checkbook. He hears her wake up and pretends to sleep only to be caught by his wife who knows what happened; this indicates. Meanwhile, his co-partner JellyRoll is fooling around with another man's wife at a hotel only to be encountered by a television show's crew who hunts down people who cheat on their loved ones. Gina's husband Ronnie, a cop, drives into the parking lot and starts to shoot at them from his cop car as JellyRoll and Gina escape by car.
Redds visits his mom and begs for money but is turned down and is forced to steal his wife's checkbook while she is in the shower. He checks up on his son, who goes by Yung Semore, makes sure he is ready to open up for Jeezy and perform at the concert, he continues his plans by picking up JellyRoll and getting a rent-a-van to pick up Young Jeezy instead of getting a limo. He gets Jellyroll to pick them up from the airport as he runs errands around Modesto, California getting more money or getting hotel reservations for the rapper and his entourage. After taking forever to arrive at the airport, JellyRoll shows up and picks the rapper up at the airport, he finds out that Jeezy wants some weed badly, so he decides to take them to the hood to get some. He meets up with his drug dealer Mondo who scolds him for getting weed for the rapper and asks if Jeezy can come to his after party. JellyRoll insists that the rapper wants $20,000 to show up and Mondo accepts and gives him the money; this is where things start to turn for the promoters as JellyRoll spends the $20,000 on clothes and jewelry instead of using it for the show to pay Jeezy his money.
From there, the movie turns wild and intense as Russell Redds and JellyRoll try to figure out a way to get Jeezy to perform while dodging Mondo and his crew and getting the money to pay Jeezy to perform. After being delayed several times, the film released to a limited release on October 16, 2009; the film's DVD was released on November 24, 2009, made available for purchase on iTunes in HD and Standard Definition on February 10, 2010. In an interview, star Ice Cube stated that the film was unfinished, that the DVD release was made without his knowledge while he was working on a deal for a wider release of the film.
