Trapped in the Closet
Trapped in the Closet is an opera by American R&B singer R. Kelly, which consists of 33 "chapters" released from 2005 to 2012. Written and produced by R. Kelly, the series tells a story of a one-night stand which sets off a chain of events revealing a greater web of lies and deceit; the music follows a distinct E major pattern, most chapters of the story feature the same melodic theme. The first five chapters of Trapped in the Closet appeared as the final tracks on Kelly's album TP.3 Reloaded. R. Kelly wrote and produced all five chapters, they were recorded by Andy Gallas; the first chapter was released as the lead single from the album in 2005 by Jive Records. Kelly and Jive Records promoted the songs by releasing each of the first five chapters to radio stations one at a time. Following the success and popularity of the Trapped in the Closet song series, R. Kelly lip synched a "new chapter" at an appearance at the 2005 MTV Video Music Awards. In November 2005, Jive Records released a DVD titled Trapped in the Closet, which included seven new chapters in addition to the first five from TP.3 Reloaded, bringing the total number of chapters to twelve.
The material previewed by Kelly at the MTV Video Music Awards revealed an early version of some parts of the twelfth chapter in the series. Nearly two years in August 2007, Kelly and Jive released ten more chapters on another Trapped in the Closet DVD; these ten chapters were shown on the Independent Film Channel and were streamed on IFC's website. The release of the DVD brought the series to a total of 22 chapters. Kelly has stated that more chapters would be released. In December 2007, the first 22 chapters were released in a DVD entitled The Big Package, which includes a "commentary remix" featuring a preview of chapter 23. On December 21, 2011, Kelly told TMZ that he had written thirty-two more chapters, was seeking investors in order to continue the saga. IFC announced in October 2012 that it would show new chapters of Trapped in the Closet on November 23, 2012. Kelly has described the entire series as a "hip hopera", saying, "It's now too long to be called a song." When asked about the writing of the song, Kelly stated: "I don't know.
It just keeps rhyming and rhyming." He has stated that Trapped in the Closet seems to have taken on "a life and body of its own", has called the series an "alien". Each chapter follows a storyline. Kelly voices the role of the song's protagonist, who wakes up after a one-night stand with a woman; as he prepares to leave, the woman's husband returns and Sylvester is forced to hide in a closet. This sets off an escalating series of events. Chapter 1Sylvester wakes up in bed with a woman, not his wife; as he prepares to leave, the woman tells him her husband is coming up the stairs and tells Sylvester to hide in the closet. The couple begins making love when Sylvester's cell phone rings, prompting the husband to investigate. After searching elsewhere, he approaches the closet. Sylvester, prepared for a confrontation, takes out his "Beretta" pistol. However, the pistol he reveals is a 1911 pistol. Ending cliffhanger line: "Now he's opening the closet...."Chapter 2Having discovered Sylvester in his wife's closet, the husband nearly attacks him but stops because Sylvester is armed.
He tells Sylvester. When Sylvester tries to leave, the husband tells him to stay because he wants to reveal a "secret", he calls someone he calls "baby" and says to "turn the car around". Sylvester is anxious about what the husband is about to reveal and becomes threatening, but someone knocks on the door; the husband opens the door and the person turns out to be another man—revealing the husband to be bisexual. Ending cliffhanger line: "I can't believe it's a man....."Chapter 3A shocked and confused Sylvester prepares to leave but the wife asks him to stay. She argues with her husband, over his own infidelity; when Sylvester demands more explanation, the other man, begins explaining how their affair came about. Rufus calls which shocks Sylvester, who thought her name was Mary. Rufus and Chuck all begin yelling at each other, prompting Sylvester to shoot his gun in the air to quiet them. Sylvester calls home but is stunned when another man answers the phone, he bolts out of the apartment. Ending cliffhanger line: "Call up my home and a man picks up the phone...."Chapter 4Sylvester is seen rushing home and belligerent, but is pulled over by a police officer, who gives him a ticket for speeding.
He breaks in surprises his wife in the shower only to find her alone. She reminds Sylvester that her brother Twan was coming home that day, he answered the phone. Sylvester apologizes, they begin making love. In the middle of it, Sylvester's wife, discreetly covers something on the bed and jumps on top of Sylvester and begins to go wild; when Gwendolyn climaxes and rolls off him, Sylvester flips the bed cover to find the used condom that she had tried to hide. Ending cliffhanger line: "Oh, my God, a rubber!"The video for chapter four has since been revised to better match chapter six. The original actor for the officer AKA James, Rondolo Bryce, was changed to current actor, Michael Kenneth Williams, and the line "I said'This is some bullshit!', as he gave me the ticket" was changed to "He flicked his cigarette and gives me the ticket." Chapter 5Chapter five starts with Sylvester demanding answers about the condom. They argue, Gwendolyn retorts with her own knowledge of Sylvester's infidelity, saying she saw Sylvester in the club the night

Trapped (Gardner novel)
Trapped is a science fiction novel written by the Canadian author James Alan Gardner and published in 2002 by HarperCollins Publishers under its various imprints. The book is the sixth installment in Gardner's "League of Peoples" series of novels, set in the mid-25th century. While the majority of the novels in the series take place in outer space, Trapped is set on "Old Earth", does not feature the series' continuing character Festina Ramos. Trapped exploits and develops the same conceptual background that all the novels in the series employ. Around the middle of the 21st century, humanity is contacted by an extraterrestrial race connected with the League of Peoples; these beings, the Shaddills, offer humanity a bargain: humans who accept the League's cardinal rule, refrain from fatal violence against other sentient beings, can be transported to a terraformed planet, a "New Earth", receive the benefits of the League's advanced technologies. At first, the only humans willing to accept the bargain are those whose difficult lives leave them feeling they have nothing to lose.
Over a span of two decades, most of humanity leaves for New Earth, which forms the center of an interplanetary society called the Technocracy. Once the Shaddills' twenty-year offer has expired, the only people left on Old Earth are those who were too violent or recalcitrant to leave. In this state of collapse, Old Earth is vulnerable to various interferences. Most notably, the planet is infested with a wide range of nanotechnology that mimic bacteria and viruses; these nanites generate fields that can be tapped by gifted individuals to produce effects that replicate the wonders of legend and folklore—magic and sorcery, psychic powers "pseudosupernatural events" like ghosts. The chaos on Earth is brought under control by a mysterious group called the Spark Lords, they suppress terrorism, confiscate remaining nuclear weapons, poison gas, biological warfare agents. Members of the alien species in Gardner's fictional universe—Divians, Mandasars and others—who are trapped on Earth at the time are bred as slaves, called "demons" by their human masters.
The Spark Lords form a ruthless but benign tyranny, "Spark Royal" or the "Spark Protectorate", that controls the worst effects of warfare and natural disasters. The rule of this small group, however, is loose. By the time of the novel's action—"One day before the spring equinox" in 2457 A. D.—humanity has settled into a lifestyle of previous centuries. Most travel is by coach. Obscure religious sects flourish. Gardner's future Earth, in these respects, participates in the theme of a "medieval future" explored by writers like Jack Vance and Gene Wolfe among others. People live among the remains of past higher technologies. "Welcome to our modern world! Where OldTech computers serve as footstools, while the rusted remains of jumbo jets get converted to beer-halls and brothels." The novel opens with five friends out for a night of drinking and occasional brawling. All five are teachers at a less-than-first-rate boarding school called Feliss Academy, situated in the town of Simka in Feliss Province. Future versions of other real locations, such as Niagara Falls, Port Dover, the Port Dover mausoleum appear in the novel.
The five and bored with their unsatisfactory lives, are: Sir Pelinor, the school's fencing instructor, who fancies himself a courtly knight. D. the novel's narrator, a scientist and the scion of a wealthy and powerful family in the Middle East. Tonight, however, is an unusual night: the Steel Caryatid has received a premonition that the group will undertake a quest; the quest reveals itself when Dhubhai encounters a ghost, learns that one student at the school has been murdered while another, the victim's boyfriend, has run off. The group embarks on a search for the missing boy, which soon transforms into something far more sinister: a hunt for a shape-shifting alien creature and dangerous; the group expands with new recruits is whittled down by deaths along the route, as the search comes to involve aliens, a crazy and lethal Spark Lord, a criminal gang nearly as bad. Their quarry, the runaway boy, turns out to be one of the most gifted psychics the world has known, which adds a new layer of complexity to their dilemma.
Dhubhai and his surviving companions reach a bloody crisis in the basement of the power station at Niagara Falls, one of the few places on Earth that still maintains electric power and traces of OldTech civilization. Dhubhai learns. Dhubhai discovers more than he anticipated about the cryptic workings of the League of Peoples before the alien force is controlled

Charles Robert Starrett was an American actor best known for his starring role in the Durango Kid western series. When he retired he held the record for starring in the longest-running string of feature films. Starrett was born in Athol, where his grandfather had built a prosperous tool works, he attended Worcester Academy graduated from Dartmouth College. A graduate of Worcester Academy in 1922, Starrett went on to study at Dartmouth College. While on the Dartmouth football team he was hired to play a football extra in the film The Quarterback. Bitten by the acting bug, Starrett played minor roles in leading roles in stage plays. In 1928, he was a member of a repertory theatre troupe headed by Stuart Walker, he played the romantic lead in Fast and Loose, which featured Miriam Hopkins, Carole Lombard, Frank Morgan. He starred in the Canadian production The Viking, filmed on location in Newfoundland, which had begun as a Paramount Pictures project. After that he was active for the next two years but his roles were unremarkable.
He was featured in Our Betters, Murder on the Campus. and in his most charming role as a young doctor named Orion in "Along Came Love", with the vivacious co-star Irene Hervey. Offscreen, he helped organize the Screen Actors Guild. In 1935 Columbia Pictures wanted to replace its incumbent western star Tim McCoy with a younger actor. Starrett interviewed with Columbia producers. Starrett signed four contracts with Columbia, becoming the studio's number-one cowboy star, he cast an appealing figure with his tall stature, strong jawline, confident voice, air of quiet authority. Starrett's first western film was Gallant Defender. Starrett hadn't planned on making an entire career out of westerns, agreed to make them for two years, with the understanding that his bosses would cast him in plainclothes roles; when they didn't, he walked out on his contract after the two years. Meanwhile, theater exhibitors around the world were attracting big crowds with Charles Starrett westerns, so Columbia gave him a new contract with the actor insisting on appearing in a non-western.
He got his chance—once—in 1937, for the collegiate musical comedy Start Cheering. In a curious reflection of his own situation, Starrett played a disenchanted movie hero who wanted to do something different with his life, but Starrett's success in westerns established him in outdoor fare and sealed his fate professionally. For the rest of his career he made Columbia westerns exclusively; the musical westerns of Gene Autry inspired every Hollywood studio to have its cowboy personalities use their musical talents—but not Charles Starrett. He left the songs to professional vocalists. Columbia solved the problem by hiring an entire singing group to support Starrett: the Sons of the Pioneers. Charles Starrett made two dozen westerns under his new contract, they tend to resemble each other because the production unit was close-knit; the same company of technicians and players worked in film after film: always Iris Meredith as the leading lady, Dick Curtis as the villain, Hank Bell as the sidekick, Edward LeSaint as the senior character of father, marshal, etc. and the Sons of the Pioneers as the chorus.
Columbia reassigned Meredith to other productions, so various contract starlets took the ingenue roles, among them Lorna Gray and Ann Doran. When Starrett's new contract lapsed in 1941, he withdrew from westerns and Columbia disbanded the unit; the Sons of the Pioneers moved to Republic Pictures, where they reunited with their former lead singer Roy Rogers. Again, exhibitors petitioned Columbia for more Charles Starrett westerns, so the studio came through with a new contract at an increased salary. Starrett accepted his permanent cowboy status. After playing assorted rancher and sheriff roles, Starrett was cast as "The Durango Kid" in 1940; the character was an upright citizen known and liked by the townsfolk, but he masqueraded as a notorious, black-garbed horseman to terrorize the local criminals and foil their plans. The film was successful but not much different from some of Starrett's earlier good guy-chasing-bad-guy roles; the character was revived five years in The Return of the Durango Kid, which caught on quickly.
Starrett played an amiable cowpoke named Steve, who would become angered by an injustice and go after the villains as the mysterious, elusive Durango Kid. Steve's paint horse was named "Bullet" and Durango's white horse was "Raider." A follow-up film was made, a series. One favorite device became a signature: the masked Durango Kid materializing like Superman, always catching the villains by surprise; the Durango Kid rejuvenated Charles Starrett's career, winning him a new generation of loyal fans and a new five-year contract. The series was a useful training ground for novice actresses and fashion models, who would be signed to six-month contracts and cast as cowgirls in Starrett westerns. Dub Taylor, as comic sidekick "Cannonball", worked with Starrett until 1946. At that time, Smiley Burnette, a popular sidekick to Gene Autry, was brought in to replace Taylor. Burnette, appropriately enough, played a character called "Smiley Burnette." The Durango Kid films combined vigorous action se
The Honeymooners is a classic American television sitcom created by and starring Jackie Gleason, based on a recurring comedy sketch of the same name, part of his variety show. It followed the day to day life of New York City bus driver Ralph Kramden, his wife Alice, his best friend Ed Norton as they get involved with various scenarios in their day to day living. Most episodes revolved around Ralph's poor choices in absurd dilemmas which showed his quick-to-judge attitude in a comedic tone, but have revolved around more serious issues such as women's rights and social impressions; the sketches aired on the DuMont network's variety series Cavalcade of Stars, which Gleason hosted, subsequently on the CBS network's The Jackie Gleason Show, broadcast live in front of a theater audience. The popularity of the sketches led Gleason to rework The Honeymooners as a filmed half-hour series, which debuted October 1, 1955, on CBS, in place of the variety series, it was a ratings success as the #2 show in the United States during its first season, facing stiff competition from The Perry Como Show on NBC.
The show dropped to #19, ending its production after only 39 episodes. The final episode of The Honeymooners aired on September 22, 1956, although Gleason revived the characters sporadically until 1978; the Honeymooners was one of the first U. S. television shows to portray working-class married couples in a non-idyllic manner. The program is popular internationally in Canada, Poland and Sweden; the majority of The Honeymooners episodes focused on its four principal characters, used fixed sets within their Brooklyn apartment building. Although various secondary characters made multiple appearances and occasional exterior shots were incorporated during editing all action and dialogue was "on stage" inside the normal backdrop. Played by Jackie Gleason—a bus driver for the fictional Gotham Bus Company based in New York City, he never is seen driving a bus, but sometimes is shown at the bus depot. Ralph is frustrated by his lack of success, develops get-rich-quick schemes, he is short tempered resorting to bellowing and making hollow threats.
Well-hidden beneath the many layers of bluster, however, is a softhearted man who loves his wife and is devoted to his best pal, Ed Norton. Ralph enjoys—and is proficient at—bowling and playing pool, is an enthusiastic member of the fictitious Loyal Order of Raccoons. Ralph's mother is mentioned, although she does appear in one episode. Ralph's father is only mentioned in one episode as having given Ralph a cornet he learned to play as a boy, insists on keeping when Alice suggests it be thrown away; the Ralph character was given honorary membership in the union for real New York City bus drivers during the run of the show, a Brooklyn bus depot was named in Gleason's honor after his death. Ralph Kramden was the inspiration for the animated character Fred Flintstone. Ralph Kramden Statue. An eight-foot-tall bronze statue of a jolly Jackie Gleason stands in front of Manhattan's midtown Port Authority Bus Terminal. Alice, played in the first nine skits, starting in 1951, ending in January 1952 by Pert Kelton, by Audrey Meadows for all remaining episodes, is Ralph's patient but sharp-tongued wife of 12 years.
She finds herself bearing the brunt of Ralph's insults, which she returns with biting sarcasm. She is levelheaded, in contrast to Ralph's pattern of inventing various schemes to enhance his wealth or his pride. In each case, she sees the current one's un-workability, but he becomes angry and ignores her advice, she has grown accustomed to his empty threats—such as "One of these days, POW!!! Right in the kisser!", "BANG, ZOOM!" or "You're going to the moon!"—to which she replies, "Ahhh, shaddap!" Alice studied to be a secretary before her marriage and works in that capacity when Ralph is laid off. Wilma Flintstone is based on Alice Kramden. Another foil for Ralph is Alice's mother, sharper-tongued than her daughter, she despises Ralph as a bad provider. Alice's father is mentioned but never seen. Alice's sister, appeared in one episode. Ralph and Alice lived with her mother for six years after getting married before they got their own apartment. In a 1967 revival, Ralph refers to Alice as being one of 12 children with her father never working.
The Honeymooners appeared as a sketch on the DuMont Network's Cavalcade of Stars, with the role of Alice played by Pert Kelton. When his contract with DuMont expired, Gleason moved to the CBS network where he had The Jackie Gleason Show, the Alice role went to Audrey Meadows because Kelton had been blacklisted during the infamous McCarthy hearings investigating alleged Communist activities in the entertainment world. Played by Art Carney, he is more good-natured than Ralph, but nonetheless trades insults with him on a regular basis. Ed (typically called "Norton" by Ralph and som
