Ludwig Von Drake

Professor Ludwig Von Drake is one of Walt Disney's cartoon and comic book characters. He was first introduced on September 24, 1961, as the presenter in the cartoon An Adventure in Color, part of the first episode of Walt Disney's Wonderful World of Color on NBC. Said to be an uncle of Donald Duck, he is described as a scientist, lecturer and world traveler; the character displayed his "expert" knowledge on a variety of subjects in eighteen episodes of the classic anthology series, as well as on a number of Disneyland Records. Paul Frees was the original voice of Ludwig Von Drake. After Frees retired from the role, the character was voiced by Walker Edmiston. Since 1987, he has been voiced by Corey Burton. Ludwig Von Drake comes from Vienna and has a fascination with knowledge. Since his youth he has been trying to obtain in any science, as possible; when he is consulted by other family members, it is a running gag that he invariably turns out to have a university degree relevant for whatever information they are seeking.

He is shown as having little social competence, is portrayed as being forgetful, sometimes somewhat senile. In the comics Ludwig visits with Donald Duck and Donald's nephews Huey and Louie. On occasion, Daisy Duck would coax the professor into giving lectures and tours for her ladies' club. Sometimes Ludwig and Gyro Gearloose have competed as to, the greater inventor, he can play acoustic guitar, as shown in a few television specials and more. In the Wonderful World of Color episode Kids is Kids, Ludwig states. In the Wonderful World of Color episode The Hunting Instinct, Walt Disney states Ludwig is Donald Duck's father's brother. According to Walt Disney, Donald decided to adopt his maternal surname, when he got into show business, that's the reason why he isn't popularly known as Donald Von Drake in comic stories Carl Barks established Donald's paternal surname as Duck, his father being son of Grandma Duck, his maternal one as McDuck, since he's son of Scrooge McDuck's younger sister, Hortense McDuck.

In the comic strips by the famous duo of comic artists Bob Karp and Al Taliaferro and his nephews call him'Uncle Ludwig', but in the comic stories he is called'Ludwig' or'Professor' by them. Daisy Duck refers to Ludwig as sort of an uncle of Donald in the first Sunday strip where his name is mentioned. In the story "Duckburg, U. S. A.", published in Ludwig Von Drake #1, Professor Ludwig Von Drake arrives in Duckburg by train, it is shown that Donald Duck had never seen this Austrian relative before, not in a picture. Grandma Duck, Uncle Scrooge McDuck, Daisy Duck, Gladstone Gander, Huey and Louie, Gus Goose, Gyro Gearloose appear in this same story waiting to know Ludwig at the train station, Grandma enthusiastically exclaims, "Professor Ludwig Von Drake! Such a nice-sounding name!". According to an explanation created by Don Rosa's personal family tree, he would have to be married to Donald Duck's aunt, Matilda McDuck, making him Scrooge's brother-in-law. Ludwig exclaims in the Christmas story "The Cuckoo Clock Caper" that he and Scrooge are "joined in good fellowship".

Besides, he was shown as a member of the Absentminded Dating Club, being the suitor of another member of this same club in some old comic strips, a duck woman called Alice. Therefore, Ludwig's marital status is unmarried. In some old comic stories where Ludwig visits Grandma on her farm, it's clear that they have a close relationship, as shown in the story "Message From Space", where Grandma exclaims, "You need rest, dear boy!", after thinking he had a kind of nervous breakdown. In "Pigeon Panic" Ludwig exclaims, "Ho! You know you can depend on me!", after Grandma warned him to be careful with her smartest homer. There is an enlightening sequence of two panels in the story "The Rural Eggs-pert", where Ludwig is resting in an old chair of Grandma's house when an antique buyer asks Grandma to sell him "this fine old specimen" and she answers, "Well, it's been in the family for years, but I could do without it!", making Ludwig astonished, since he thinks she's referring to him as if he was a livestock.

He wouldn't have reacted this way. In the last panel of the story "Barn Dance Doctor", Grandma refers to Ludwig as her "cityfied cousin". Since it was stipulated by Don Rosa that her father was a Coot and her mother was a Gadwall, it's not clear if Ludwig Von Drake is related to Elvira Coot through her father or her mother. Elvira could have an Austrian ascendancy to explain her kinship to Ludwig. In the story "The Family Tree Spree", Donald scares of seeing Ludwig's specs on the floor and thinks about them as "Uncle Ludwig's specs". In the end of this same story, it's revealed that Ludwig appears in Donald's paternal family tree, wherein he and Donald both have an ancestor called Colombust Duck. Since Humperdink Duck, Grandma Duck's deceased husband, was almost contemporary with Ludwig Von Drake, it's possible to consider they were half-brothers, Donald being thus Ludwig's grandnephew. Ludwig reveals to Daisy and her friends in "Blown Up Genius" that he came from a long line of glass blowers.

In "Winning Ways", Daisy and her friends try to prepare Ludwig's favorite dish, called Wiener Schnitzel a la Weltschmerz, whose recipe belonged to Ludwig's great grandmother. Ludwig is excited about it because he has not eaten that dish since he left Austria and came to Duckburg to know his relatives of Donald's paternal family. In "The Big Payoff", it's revealed that he spent many months living in Donald's house since his

Ten Thousand Fists

Ten Thousand Fists is the third studio album by American heavy metal band Disturbed. It was released on September 20, 2005 and became Disturbed's second consecutive number 1 debut on the Billboard 200 in the United States, shipping around 239,000 copies in its opening week, it has been certified Platinum by the RIAA and was the band's second number 1 release in New Zealand. It is the first Disturbed album to not have the Parental Advisory label. Ten Thousand Fists marks the first album with bassist John Moyer who replaced Steve Kmak following his dismissal in 2003. However, Moyer was considered a session musician during the time of recording, only became a full-time member during the tour supporting the album, it would be the band's third and final collaboration with mainstay producer Johnny K. In addition, Ten Thousand Fists is the first album to feature their now-infamous mascot "The Guy" on the cover. Ten Thousand Fists is, as of 2010, Disturbed's second highest selling album in the United States, with sales of around 1.9 million copies.

The Sickness, the band's debut CD, has shifted sales of 4.2 million copies in the United States. The album was dedicated to Dimebag Darrell, murdered the year before the album's release; the album features several styles, including alternative metal, nu metal, hard rock, speed metal. On June 16, 2005 the album title was announced via the Disturbed website; that month, the album track listing was revealed. The song "Guarded" was released to radio stations in late June 2005 as a teaser. Vocalist David Draiman said the motive behind releasing, he said, " was put out there to just whet everybody's appetite. It's one of the more aggressive tracks on the record, just to remind everybody where we came from and who we are."The first single, "Stricken", was released on July 25, 2005. On August 19, 2005 the music video "Stricken", directed by Nathan Cox, was posted on the Warner Bros. Records website; the music video was filmed in an abandoned hospital, in the same location where some scenes from the 1984 horror film A Nightmare on Elm Street were filmed.

In early August 2005, viral marketing was used to promote Ten Thousand Fists. A piece of software was sent via e-mail to certain recipients, who passed it along to other recipients; when the software was passed along to at least 250,000 recipients, it unlocked the song "Ten Thousand Fists". In early July 2006, the third single, "Land of Confusion", was released, alongside an animated music video directed by Todd McFarlane. Vocalist David Draiman said that Ten Thousand Fists "seems to fuse the brutality and darkness of The Sickness with the added melodic nature and complexity of Believe. It's more aggressive than the last record, at times, more aggressive than the first one." The song "Overburdened" is about soldiers going to Hell. Draiman said, he said the song "reflects what choosing this life forces certain people to do in a certain way — you have to remain guarded on a certain level." Draiman said the song "Ten Thousand Fists" is meant to " strength, conviction and the exhilaration that you feel when you get to see that at one of our shows."

Draiman continued to say, "It's one of my favorite moments, people know that I have an affinity for asking people to put their fists in the air, it's just, it's exhilaration to be able to see ten thousand raised fists or more." According to band members, while Ten Thousand Fists was not written as a political album, it was their most political record to date. Vocalist David Draiman's lyrics for the title song, "Ten Thousand Fists", were influenced by his feelings towards American president George W. Bush, several of the songs included war/anti-war themes, including "Deify", for which the intro features audio clips of Bush urging the nation to push forward in war, interlaced with an individual's political commentary, while the video for "Land of Confusion" depicts big business and capitalism as being a corrupting Nazi-style enemy being overthrown by an army of the people led by The Guy, the band's mascot. Ten Thousand Fists earned mixed reviews from critics. Allmusic reviewer Johnny Loftus gave the album a positive review.

The Village Voice's reviewer Phil Freeman gave the album a positive review, "The guitarist and drummer are an airtight team, the session bassist capably underpins the guitar solos that are a welcome new addition to the band's sound. Program out the cover of'Land of Confusion' and you've got the best mainstream metal release since Judas Priest's Angel of Retribution." NME gave it a 1/10 review describing it as "unfocused rage" and "you'll find nothing more despicable this year". The UK and Tour editions of the album both featured four bonus tracks: "Monster", "Two Worlds", "Hell", "Sickened", the first of, included as an iTunes bonus track. All four songs are included in the band's b-side compilation, The Lost Children. All tracks are written by Disturbed, except "Land of Confusion", written by Genesis.
