Morbid Angel

Morbid Angel is an American death metal band based in Tampa, Florida formed in 1983 by guitarist, primary composer and sole remaining original member Trey Azagthoth and bassist Dallas Ward, drummer Mike Browning. Considered as one of the most influential bands in the genre and important in the transition of death metal from its thrash metal roots, they were one of the first bands to incorporate guttural vocals, up-tempo blast beats, multiple tempo changes and dark atmosphere, they have been described as one of "the most influential and emulated bands in death metal", alongside Obituary, Cynic and Deicide, have been cited as an influence by many bands. They were the first death metal band to experience mainstream success in connection with being signed to Giant Records in 1992, heavy rotation of their music videos on MTV, having the music video for the song "God of Emptiness" shown on an episode of Beavis and Butt-head, their first four albums – Altars of Madness, Blessed Are the Sick and Domination – are considered classics in the genre.

British music magazine Terrorizer ranked Altars of Madness first in its list "Top 40 greatest death metal albums". Decibel magazine rated guitarist Trey Azagthoth as the number one "death metal guitarist ever"; the band's songs are complex in arrangement, owing to the considerable technical skills of both Azagthoth as well as drummer Pete Sandoval, the latter of whom played in the grindcore band Terrorizer. According to Nielsen SoundScan, Morbid Angel is the third best-selling death metal band in the United States, with their third album Covenant being the best-selling death metal album during the beginning of the Soundscan era time with over 150,000 units sold; the band's original lyrical themes, when helmed by Vincent focused on Satanism and anti-Christian subject matter, but from Formulas Fatal to the Flesh onward, via Azagthoth's influence, the lyrics moved toward the ancient Sumerian gods. Much of this is a nod to the Simon Necronomicon, influenced by Sumerian mythology, the author H. P. Lovecraft, fascination with the Roman Empire, during Steve Tucker's tenure they take on more anti-religious and barbaric themes, namely of the strong overcoming the weak.

Their albums are notable for being released in alphabetical order, with guitarist Trey Azagthoth commenting that it was a coincidence regarding the first two albums, but that it has been done consciously since then. Morbid Angel was formed in 1983 in Tampa, Florida by guitarist Trey Azagthoth and drummer/vocalist Mike Browning. In the early stages of their career the band developed a reputation for "gruesome stage antics." They recorded their debut album, Abominations of Desolation, in 1986, but the band was unsatisfied with the final product and it remained unreleased until 1991, printing 10,000 copies. In 1986, David Vincent joined the band, replacing Michael Manson and Sterling von Scarborough as vocalist and bassist respectively. Fellow Terrorizer member, drummer Pete Sandoval, soon followed; the band made their debut in 1987 on the New Renaissance Records record label. Their first studio album, Altars of Madness, was released in 1989, is regarded by many as one of the most important death metal albums of all time.

Music journalist Jason Birchmeier writes that:Few albums struck a chord within the ears and minds of the late-'80s underground metal scene like Morbid Angel's Altars of Madness did at the end of the decade, setting a new precedent for metal bands to reach. With the arguable exception of Chuck Schuldiner's Death, never before had a heavy metal band carried their lightning-fast guitar riffs and spellbinding guitar solos into such horrific territory. Venom and Slayer redefined the extent to which a metal band could align itself with all things evil during the beginning of the decade, but Morbid Angel made these two groups sound like children's music compared to the Florida-based group's assaulting death metal sounds and their blasphemous lyrics. Morbid Angel toured for nearly two years in support of Altars of Madness; the tour started in November 1989 when they opened for Napalm Death and Bolt Thrower in the UK and Europe. Most of 1990 and 1991 were spent touring North America, playing with bands such as Pantera, Atheist, Death Angel, Sanctuary, Ripping Corpse, Deicide and Wrath.

The Altars of Madness tour ended in April 1991 with a Brazilian tour, supported by Sarcófago and Cambio Negro. In 1991, Morbid Angel released their second album, Blessed Are the Sick, met with widespread critical acclaim, is considered by many to be a landmark release in the death metal genre; the album differed from its predecessor. Morbid Angel toured worldwide in support of Blessed Are the Sick throughout 1991 and 1992, headlining a European tour with Sadus, Cathedral and Unleashed, a North American tour and a European tour with Entombed and Unleashed, they were one of the opening acts for Motörhead on the "Christmas Metal Meetings'91" tour, toured Australia for the first time. Following the success of Altars of Madness and Blessed Are the Sick, Morbid Angel were signed by Irving Azoff to Giant Records for one album, with the option of five more. In late 1992, second guitarist Richard Brunelle was kicked out of the band due to alleged substance abuse. On June 22, 1993 the band released their third full-length album Covenant, which went on to sell over 150,000 copies in t

Chiriyakhana

Chiriakhana or Chiriyakhana is a 1967 Indian Bengali-language crime thriller film, based on the story of the same name by Sharadindu Bandyopadhyay, directed by Satyajit Ray starring Uttam Kumar as Byomkesh Bakshi. The screenplay is written by Satyajit Ray; the film was once considered Ray's worst film because of its complex plot, but nowadays many intellectuals and film experts consider it Ray's most brilliant movie. The flexible acting of Uttam Kumar in the movie was praised by many critics at that time. Famous private detective Byomkesh Bakshi and his assistant Ajit are chatting when a new client, Mr Nishanath Sen, knocks on the door. Nishanath is an ex-judge and a rich merchant, he needs Byomkesh for a special reason. He is searching for the details of an old Bengali movie song and the actress who sang it, Sunayana, as he thinks that she is hiding somewhere inside his huge nursery, Golap Colony, under a fake identity. Nishanath as a judge hanged at least eight people, but after his retirement, due to lingering moral regrets, he has sheltered a few homeless people, who have either long criminal records or other qualities that make them social outcasts.

Byomkesh accepts the case. Sen pays him the advance and requests. Byomkesh meets a Bengali movie expert, Ramen Mullick, comes to know about the movie producer's son Murari, he learns. 20,000 rupees and many gold ornaments were robbed from Murari's room. Suspecting Sunayana's role in the murder of Murari, a court issued an arrest warrant against her, but she disappeared and her whereabouts are unknown. Ramen gives the details about the actress and about the film and promises to assist Byomkesh whenever he needs him; the next day and Ajit visit Sen's 24 pargana's bungalow and nursery to meet the residents whom Sen has sheltered. Byomkesh comes disguised as a Japanese horticulturist named Okakura, while Ajit appears as his Indian assistant. Sen shows them the entire nursery including poultry and an orchid house, he introduces Byomkesh photographs everyone. Within a few days, Sen makes another phone call to Byomkesh requesting him to visit again, but the conversation remains unfinished as Mr Sen is bludgeoned to death with a blunt weapon.

Byomkesh and Ajit are visited the next day by a police inspector who wants there help on the murder Sen, not knowing of Byomkesh's pre-existing relations with Sen. Byomkesh and Ajit return to the colony and interrogate everyone concerned with Sen's nursery. After a thorough investigation, Byomkesh realises that the case will not prove easy to solve, as there are several motives and people behind Sen's death. After a few days, another murder occurred inside the Golap Colony: this time the victim is Panu, a deaf-mute and one of the suspects who witnessed Sen's murder. Panu's killer used the same weapon and method as was used to kill Sen. Byomkesh again reaches the spot, examines everything and decides to records the interrogations with his voice recorder, he interrogates all the suspects: Bijoy, Muskil Mian, Brajo Das, Nepal Gupta and Dr. Das, all the women, including Mrs Damayanti, Mukul Nazar bibi and Banalakshimi – one among the list of suspects. Byomkesh takes an old photograph of Sunayana and tries to match it with all the women under suspicion, but he is unable to make a match.

Shortly after the latest round of interrogations, Brajo comes to Byomkesh's house and confesses about his lord's personal life. He says. Many years ago, Sen sentences Damayanti's husband Lal Singh to death for a criminal case, but Lal is not hanged, but rather imprisoned for 14 years because of the concession given from a high court. Lal kills a person to steal his car, he takes many parts of the car and throws them through Sen's bungalow window every fortnight to threaten him. Lal visits Damayanti secretly for money, but Byomkesh's investigation reveals many other possibilities too. He finds a tape of Dr. Das playing his sitar in the doctor's room. Byomkesh knows that Sen would not have agreed to the relationship of Bijoy with Banalaxmi, so there is a chance that Bijoy murdered Sen in order to marry Banalaxmi and inherit Sen's wealth. In his room, Byomkesh notices a plastic flower, he takes the photo of Sunayana and compares it with the four women's photos and goes for a detailed analysis. He calls everyone and reveals Dr. Das as the person behind the murder of Sen and Panu.

Dr. Das earlier said, but this statement was disproven when Byomkesh found the tape, playing in Dr. Das's room during the murder. Byomkesh shows them the stolen jewellery and contract papers of ‘Sunayana’ which Das was hiding for a long time. Banalakshmi, the employee of this nursery, is revealed as the actress Sunayana and the wife of Dr Das, she declares. Banalakshmi confesses that her husband exploited her beauty to make money and how he murdered Murari and Panu to destroy all the evidences of his criminality.

I.A.Recordings

I. A. Recordings was founded in 1982 by a small group of volunteers, to record past and present industries on film and video, as a resource for industrial archaeology; when possible, they capture the activities of an industry while it is still working. All the footage they shoot is kept in a storage archive for posterity}. From time to time, they produce edited programmes from some of the material, to make it available to the public on DVD, their first project in 1982 was to work with the historian W. K. V. Gale to record the famous John Bradley Rolling Mill in the English Midlands, as it was due to close within a week and was the last of its kind in the area. Since they have recorded many industries, several of which have since closed, they have produced several documentary history programmes about inland waterways and mining. I. A. Recordings started in Britain but have since recorded sites in Ireland, France, Poland and the United States, they have developed their own specialist video technology such as helmet-mounted cameras for use underground and MineCam, a remote-controlled camera for mine shaft exploration.

I. A. Recordings use since 2005, High Definition Video. By 2008, they had over 38,000 minutes of original footage in the archive, but as they are voluntary they have only had time to edit a small amount for release on DVD.

Guia Risari

Guia Risari is an Italian writer. Born in Milan, Guia Risari graduated from the Liceo Parini in 1990, she went on to study Ethics at university, getting her degree in 1995 with a thesis on Jean Améry, at the same time working as a journalist for l'Unità and as an educationalist. Risari took up an in-depth study of antisemitism, getting a master's degree in "Modern Jewish Studies" in 1997 from the University of Leeds. Beginning in 1998, she spent a long period in France to continue her studies in Montpellier and Paris. Between 1999 and 2008 she divided her time between the Sapienza University of Rome. In the same period, she worked as a librarian, translator, journalist and lecturer, while never abandoning her work as a volunteer. During the time spent abroad Guia always maintained a strong emotional bond with her family, to whom she gives credit for having stimulated her dialectic capacity. Guia Risari is the translator of her own works, which are published in various languages, her studies, along with Surrealism, a sensitivity towards minorities and her regard for children are all re-elaborated in her writing, to which she has devoted herself since 2001.

With the exception of her translations and essays, Guia Risari’s writings are accompanied by illustrations created by different artists: for example, the colors of Elisa Macellari for Il decamerino or Cecco Mariniello for Pane e oro and La macchina di Celestino, the collages of Marc Taeger for Achille il puntino, or the pencil drawings of Arianna Floris for La porta di Anne. Il pesce spada e la serratura is illustrated by Altan and recalls the Surrealistic game of exquisite corpses. Il taccuino di Simone Weil is accompanied by the illustrations of Pia Valentinis; the novel tells the true story of Simone Weil and the historical scenario in which she lived, in the form of an imaginary diary. Published in an artisan printing house, furnished with a bookmark, the volume is presented in the style of a real diary: the pages are "in natural paper made of cotton fibres” and the binding is held together with elastic. La terre respire, with watercolors by Alessandro Sanna, represents "a hymn to the power of nature".

The interaction between writing and graphics and the supervision of the edition, typical of book arts, are the characteristics of Surrealism feminine surrealism. Elements common to literary works of feminine Surrealism are the artists’ book, interdisciplinary features, the use of fairy-tales populated by magical creatures and cats regarded as alter egos, the attention given to nature and recourse to the imagination and writing in order to combat negativity and racial prejudice. In general, Guia Risari’s writings for children are part of the new Italian literary model of the 21st century, through which children are urged into active and critical reading, encouraged to re-elaborate reality in a creative way; the child protagonist in Pane e oro, for example, manages to overcome her humble conditions with her imagination, with only the help of a piece of paper and a pencil. Achille il puntino published in Spain and included in a catalogue entitled Born to Read, provides young readers with tools for discovering new worlds through speaking and writing.

The dot, in fact, contains in itself a multitude of meanings and images which come to life and change. Through successive metamorphoses, the dot makes it possible to visualize anthropomorphic forms and stimulates children to question the human body, an object of curiosity and mystery; the “salvific power of imagination” resists the most tragic reality, like that of Anne Frank, which Guia Risari revisits in La porta di Anne, in which the persecution of the Jews is narrated so as to remain impressed in the memory of all readers. It is a creative transposition made up of many elements from her studies in anti-Semitism, which bore fruit in her essay-writing. Il viaggio di Lea was Finalist in the "Premio Strega Ragazze e Ragazzi" 2016-17, Category +11. Guia Risari dealt with anti-Semitism from a philosophical point of view during her academic studies in Leeds, going on to analyze the characteristics of Italian anti-Semitism through the work of Giorgio Bassani. Risari makes reference, above all, to the critical approach of the Frankfurt School and the analyses carried out by Zygmunt Bauman on the relationship between modernity and the Holocaust, on the basis of which the characteristics of recent times have aggravated the ancient prejudice against the Jews, always regarded as the “other”, “different”, to be isolated and destroyed.

For the first time, the bureaucratic machine takes on that task, relieving the individual of responsibility. Approaching Il romanzo di Ferrara by Bassani, Guia Risari takes into consideration the literary testimony of the Holocaust; the literature of the Holocaust, through various phases from diaries to essays and stories, is transformed into an instrument of commemoration and elaboration of the events and traumas. In Romanzo di Ferrara, Risari recognizes the complexity of a work, “at the same time an historical narrative and a personal document”, in which Bassani is both a “reporter and witness, describing with increasing awareness the scene of a personal and collective trauma”, yet maintaining a calm tone; the emphasis of Bassani, in fact, is on the need to preserve the memory of an event, the Holocaust, which has stained a part of huma
