Homogenic is the fourth studio album by Icelandic musician Björk, re-
leased in September 1997. Produced by Björk, Mark Bell, Guy Sigs- worth, Howie B and Markus Dravs, it was released on One Little Indian Records. The music of Homogenic was a new style for Björk, focusing on similar sounding music combining electronic beats and string ins- truments with songs in tribute to her native country Iceland. Homogenic was originally to be produced in her home in London, but was later recorded in Spain. Homogenic marked the first of several production collaborations between Mark Bell and Björk, whom Björk would cite as a major influence on her musical career. The album peaked at number twenty-eight on the Billboard 200, and at number four on the UK Albums Chart. Five singles were released from Homogenic: "Jóga", "Bachelorette", "Hunter", "Alarm Call" and "All Is Full of Love". Homogenic was highly acclaimed on its initial release and continues to be praised by critics, with Sal Cinquemani of Slant Magazine stating that "if not the greatest electronic album of all time, it's certainly the greatest of its decade".

Monica Anna Maria Bellucci, born 30 September 1964) is an Italian actress and fashion model. MORRISSEY
Steven Patrick Morrissey (born 22 May 1959), known as Morrissey,
is an English singer and lyricist. He rose to prominence in the
1980s as the lyricist and vocalist of the alternative rock band The Smiths.
The band was highly successful in the United Kingdom but broke up in
1987, and Morrissey began a solo career, making the top ten of the UK
Singles Chart on ten occasions. Widely regarded as an important
innovator in indie music, Morrissey has been described by music ma-
gazine NME as "one of the most influential artists ever," and The In-
dependent has stated "most pop stars have to be dead before they
reach the iconic status he has reached in his lifetime." Pitchfork Media
has called him "one of the most singular figures in Western popular
culture from the last twenty years."Morrissey's lyrics have been des-
cribed as "dramatic, bleak, funny vignettes about doomed relation-
ships, lonely nightclubs, the burden of the past and the prison of the
home." He is also noted for his unique baritone vocal style (though
he sometimes uses falsetto), his quiff haircut and his dynamic live
performances. His forthright, often contrarian opinions, especially
on the subject of race, have led to a number of media controversies,
and he has also attracted media attention for his advocacy of
vegetarianism and animal rights.

"Bad As Me"
Thomas Alan "Tom" Waits (born December 7, 1949) is an American singer-songwriter, composer, and actor. Waits has a distinctive voice,
described by critic Daniel Durchholz as sounding "like it was soaked in a vat of bour- bon, left hanging in the smokehouse for a few months, and then taken outside and run over with a car." With this trademark growl, his incorporation of pre-rock music styles such as blues, jazz, and vaudeville, and experimental tendencies verging on industrial music, Waits has built up a distinctive musical persona. He has worked as a composer for movies and musical plays and has acted in supporting roles in films inclu- ding Paradise Alley and Bram Stoker's Dracula; he also starred in the 1986 film Down by Law. He was nominated for an Academy Award for his soundtrack work on One from the Heart. Lyrically, Waits' songs frequently present atmospheric portrayals of grotesque, often seedy characters and places—although he has also shown a penchant for more conventional ballads. He has a cult following and has influenced subsequent songwriters despite having little radio or music video support. His songs are best-known through cover versions by more commercial artists: "Jersey Girl", performed by Bruce Springsteen, "Ol' '55", performed by the Eagles, and "Downtown Train", performed by Rod Stewart. Although Waits' albums have met with mixed commercial success in his native United States, they have occasionally achieved gold album sales status in other countries. He has been nominated for a number of major music awards
and has won Grammy Awards for two albums, Bone Machine and Mule Variations. In 2011, Waits was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame.

Jeff Lindsay, including Darkly Dreaming Dexter (2004), Dearly Devoted
Dexter (2005), Dexter in the Dark (2007), Dexter by Design (2009), Dexter
Is Delicious (2010) and Double Dexter (2011). In 2006, the first novel was
adapted into the Showtime TV series Dexter and its companion web series
Dexter: Early Cuts.In both the novels and the TV series, Dexter is a forensic
blood spatter analyst who works for the fictitious Miami-Metro Police De-
partment; in his spare time, he is a serial killer who preys on other murde- rers who have escaped the justice system. He follows an elaborate code of ethics and procedures taught to him in childhood by his foster father, Harry Morgan (which he refers to as "The Code" or "The Code of Harry"), which hinges on two principles: Dexter can only kill people after finding evidence that they are guilty of murder, and he must dispose of all evidence so he never gets caught. The program's first season was largely based on the first novel, Darkly Dreaming Dexter, but the following seasons veered away from the rest of the book series.In the television program, Dexter is played by Michael C. Hall. He has received rave reviews for his port- rayal, both critically and popularly, and he won a Golden Globe Award in 2009 for Best Actor in a Television Series or Drama for his portrayal of
Dexter Morgan in the fourth season.

Vincent Willem van Gogh (30 March 1853 – 29 July 1890)
was a Dutch post-Impressionist painter whose work, notable for its rough
beauty, emotional honesty, and bold color, had a far-reaching influence on
20th-century art. After years of painful anxiety and frequent bouts of mental
illness, he died at the age of 37 from a gunshot wound, generally accepted
to be self-inflicted (although no gun was ever found). His work was then
known to only a handful of people and appreciated by fewer still.Van Gogh
loved art from an early age. He began to draw as a child, and he continued
making drawings throughout the years leading to his decision to become an
artist. He did not begin painting until his late twenties, completing many of
his best-known works during his last two years. In just over a decade, he
produced more than 2,100 artworks, consisting of 860 oil paintings and
more than 1,300 watercolors, drawings, sketches and prints. His work
included self portraits, landscapes, still lifes of flowers, portraits and
paintings of cypresses, wheat fields and sunflowers.
