The Howard Stern Show
The Howard Stern Show is an American talk radio show hosted by Howard Stern. It gained wide recognition when it was nationally syndicated on terrestrial radio from 1986 to 2005; the show has been exclusive to Sirius XM Radio, a subscription-based satellite radio service, since 2006. Other prominent staff members include co-host and news anchor Robin Quivers, writer Fred Norris, executive producer Gary Dell'Abate; the show developed in 1979 when Stern landed his first morning shift at WCCC in Hartford, four years into his professional radio career. He continued to break out as a morning personality at WWWW in Detroit, Michigan in 1980, was paired with Quivers in 1981 at WWDC in Washington, D. C. In 1982, Stern's success in Washington led to a spot at WNBC in New York City, where he hosted the city's top afternoon show until his firing in 1985; that year, the show began a 20-year run at WXRK in New York City where it aired on a total of 60 markets across the United States and Canada and gained an audience of 20 million listeners at its peak.
In the New York area, the show was the highest-rated morning program consecutively between 1994 and 2001. A total of $2.5 million in fines were issued to station licensees that carried the show by the Federal Communications Commission, for what it considered indecent material. Following Stern's contract with Sirius in 2004, the show left terrestrial radio in December 2005. Since 1994, the show has been taped and broadcast on several networks, including E!, CBS, HowardTV, an on-demand digital cable service. SiriusXM launched a "360" app in 2018 available to subscribers where video clips of the show can be seen. Stern landed his first professional radio job while at Boston University, performing on-air skits, news casting and production duties at WNTN in Newton, Massachusetts from August to December 1975, he hosted a show with three fellow students on WTBU, campus radio station, named The King Schmaltz Bagel Hour, cancelled during its first broadcast for a sketch called "Godzilla Goes to Harlem".
After his graduation, Stern landed some cover shifts in December 1976 at WRNW, a progressive rock station in Briarcliff Manor, New York where he was subsequently hired full-time working middays. He produced more creative commercials by calling the owners of businesses on the air, which he wrote "was mind-blowing to everyone there."In 1979, Stern responded to an advertisement for a "wild, fun morning guy" at WCCC, rock station in Hartford, Connecticut. He produced a more outrageous audition tape, playing Robert Klein and Cheech and Chong records mixed with flatulence routines and one-liners, he was hired for his first in a large radio market. As the station's public affairs director, Stern hosted a half-hour interview show on Sunday mornings, which he favored as it contained no music, he would ask more unusual type questions such as their dating habits. Stern held a two-day boycott of Shell Oil Company during the summer of the 1979 energy crisis, which made Stern and the station make national news.
Stern began his "Dial-a-Date" routines at WCCC, met Fred Norris, the station's overnight disc jockey who provided Stern's show with various comedic impressions of celebrities. Norris would join the show as Stern's writer and producer in 1981. After Stern left WCCC for being denied a raise in salary, he began a new morning shift at WWWW, a struggling rock outlet in Detroit, Michigan on April 21, 1980, he learned to become more open on the air and "decided to cut down the barriers...strip down all the ego...and be honest... I still sounded like an FM announcer". Stern held a bra-burning event and wrestled women outside the studios, invited listeners to confess the most outrageous places where they had sex, record their calls for the air. A stunt in which listeners paid $1.06 to hit a Japanese car with a sledgehammer earned Stern national mention. For his performance, Stern won a Billboard award for "Best Album-Oriented Rock Disc Jockey" and was featured in the Drake-Chenault "Top Five Talent Search" contest in the AOR category.
Published in January 1981, the fall Arbitron ratings showed that Stern trailed his three rock competitors with a 1.6% market share of the listening audience during an average quarter-hour. It was the final straw for management, who turned WWWW into a more successful country music format on January 18. Much to his dislike, Stern left the station soon after and declined offers to work at CHUM in Toronto, WXRT in Chicago, WPLJ in New York City. On March 2, 1981, Stern began his third morning job at WWDC, a rock station in Washington, D. C, he was determined to become a success, noticed the importance of news segments for satire. He wished for a news person to riff with him in the studio. Management paired Stern with Robin Quivers, a news anchor and consumer reporter from WFBR in Baltimore, who agreed to meet Stern after hearing him interview a prostitute on the air. Quivers at first "thought I would come in and do the news...but it wasn't that way...he wanted someone to play off of...he wanted a real live person there with him".
The show began to break format, Stern held a lesbian edition of "Dial-a-Date" in May 1981. He formed the Think Tank, a cohesive trio of male listeners who conversed with Stern and played along with quizzes and routines, which helped the show sound more natural. By January 1982, Stern had the second highest-rated morning program in the city. On January 14, one day after the crash of Air Florida Flight 90, Stern made listeners believe he asked Air Florida the price of a one-way ticket to the 14th Street Bridge, the location of the disaster. "Is that going to be a permanent stop?" asked Stern. On June 29, 1982, Stern's contract at WWDC was terminated. Later

Comic Book Men is an American reality television series which aired on the AMC network from 2012 to 2018. It is set at Kevin Smith's comic book shop and Silent Bob's Secret Stash, in Red Bank, New Jersey. Filmmaker Kevin Smith was drawn to television through his love of podcasting, through which he says he realized his true calling: telling stories with words rather than pictures, his website, SModcast.com, features a number of podcasts, including I Sell Comics!, hosted by Mike Zapcic and Ming Chen, Tell'Em Steve-Dave!, co-hosted by Walt Flanagan and Bryan Johnson. The latter was the inspiration for Comic Book Men. Brian Quinn, the third co-host of Tell'Em Steve-Dave!, was unable to be featured in the series due to the conditions of his contract for the TruTV series Impractical Jokers.

Necrophilia known as necrophilism, necrocoitus and thanatophilia, is a sexual attraction or sexual act involving corpses. It is classified as a paraphilia by ICD10 published by the WHO and the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of the American Psychiatric Association. Rosman and Resnick reviewed information from 34 cases of necrophilia describing the individuals' motivations for their behaviors: these individuals reported the desire to possess a non-resisting and non-rejecting partner, reunions with a romantic partner, sexual attraction to corpses, comfort or overcoming feelings of isolation, or seeking self-esteem by expressing power over a homicide victim; the term'necrophilia' is thought to have been coined by Belgian physician Joseph Guislain in his Leçons Orales sur les Phrénopathies, in a lecture given around 1850, in reference to contemporary necrophile François Bertrand: It is within the category of the destructive madmen that one needs to situate certain patients to whom I would like to give the name of necrophiliacs.
The alienists have adopted, as a new form, the case of Sergeant Bertrand, the disinterrer of cadavers on whom all the newspapers have reported. However, don't think that we are dealing here with a form of phrenopathy which appears for the first time; the ancients, in speaking about lycanthropy, have cited examples to which one can more or less relate the case which has just attracted the public attention so strongly. The term was popularized about a decade by psychiatrist Bénédict Morel, who discussed Bertrand. In the ancient world, sailors returning corpses to their home country were accused of necrophilia. Singular accounts of necrophilia in history are sporadic, though written records suggest the practice was present within Ancient Egypt. Herodotus writes in The Histories that, to discourage intercourse with a corpse, ancient Egyptians left deceased beautiful women to decay for "three or four days" before giving them to the embalmers. Herodotus alluded to suggestions that Greek tyrant Periander had defiled the corpse of his wife, employing a metaphor: "Periander baked his bread in a cold oven."
Acts of necrophilia are depicted on ceramics from the Moche culture, which reigned in northern Peru from the first to eighth century CE. A common theme in these artifacts is the masturbation of a male skeleton by a living woman. Hittite law from the 16th century BC through to the 13th century BC explicitly permitted sex with the dead. In what is now Northeast China, the ethnic Xianbei emperor Murong Xi of the Later Yan state had intercourse with the corpse of his beloved empress Fu Xunying, after the latter was cold and put into the coffin. In Renaissance Italy, following the reputed moral collapse brought about by the Black Death and before the Roman Inquisition of the Counter-Reformation, the literature was replete with sexual references. In a notorious modern example, American serial killer Jeffrey Dahmer was a necrophiliac. Dahmer wanted to create a sex slave; when his attempts failed, his male victim died, he would keep the corpse until it decomposed beyond recognition, continuously masturbating and performing sexual intercourse on the body.
In order to be aroused, he had to murder his male victims before performing sexual intercourse with them. Dahmer stated that he only killed his victims because they wanted to leave after having sex, would be angry with him for drugging them. British serial killer Dennis Nilsen is considered to have been a necrophiliac. In the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders, fifth edition, intense sexual interest in corpses can be diagnosed under Other Specified Paraphilic Disorder when it causes marked distress or impairment in important areas of functioning. A ten-tier classification of necrophilia exists: Role players: People who get aroused from pretending their live partner is dead during sexual activity. Romantic necrophiliacs: Bereaved people who remain attached to their dead lover's body. Necrophiliac fantasizers: People who fantasize about necrophilia, but never have sex with a corpse. Tactile necrophiliacs: People who are aroused by touching or stroking a corpse, without engaging in intercourse.
Fetishistic necrophiliacs: People who remove objects or body parts from a corpse for sexual purposes, without engaging in intercourse. Necromutilomaniacs: People who derive pleasure from mutilating a corpse while masturbating, without engaging in intercourse. Opportunistic necrophiliacs: People who have no interest in necrophilia, but take the opportunity when it arises. Regular necrophiliacs: People who preferentially have intercourse with the dead. Homicidal necrophiliacs: Necrosadists, people who commit murder in order to have sex with the victim. Exclusive necrophiliacs: People who have an exclusive interest in sex with the dead, cannot perform at all for a living partner. Additionally, criminologist Lee Mellor's typology of homicidal necrophiles consists of eight categories, is based on the combination of two behavioral axes: destructive – preservative, cold – warm; this renders four categories to which Mellor adds an additional four: Category A, e.g. Ted Bundy, Jeffrey Dahmer Category B, e.g. Gary Ridgwa
