On May 9th, 1979, a legend was born. A white-clothing-wearing, hard-partying, motivational-speaking, music-making legend who would go on to change the world forever. As a child, Andrew W.K. was often in trouble for committing arson, baseball card forgery, mail fraud, and even was given a juvenile restraining order after writing a song about his high school crush (Andrew W.K.). Learning from these experiences, he has constantly been testing the boundaries of society in order to push people to their ultimate psychological goal of self-determination.

- Throughout the history of our country, there have been multiple crimes and events that have caused great havoc and tragedy to our nation. From Nine Eleven to the Boston Marathon, crimes have impacted millions of people all over. None of these events, however, have had such an impact on our nation like John Wilkes Booth. Abraham Lincoln was assassinated on April 15th, 1975 by John Wilkes Booth. Booth had no motive to kill our great president other than the fact that he despised the union. To this day, it is still mind boggling that such a successful actor such as Booth would go out of his way to take away a great man 's life and ruin his own....

- The Messiah Handel’s classic piece, The Messiah is undoubtedly the best selection as our classes choice for the time capsule. It has all the workings of a true musical masterpiece and a beautiful message that all should know. Our song should be chosen as a piece that has lived, will live on, and does justice to music. That is The Messiah. Many of you (including myself) didn’t quite realize who Handel was, let alone know his oratorio The Messiah. Once Joel began to play it in class, the common phrase shifted from, "What?", to, "Oh, the hallelujah song." It is a piece that nearly anyone, of any generation, knows at least by its famous chorus, Hallelujah.... [tags: Musicians Handel The Messiah Essays]

- Worst job When famous clergyman Thomas Fuller said” All things are difficult before they are easy”. (Fuller) must have been speaking about some of the work he did in his life and I can see why try picking up a trash bag covered in maggots that has rotted dog feces with a little bit of old distilled beer mixed on the inside of it and let me know how good you feel about yourself. After that you may have to pick up five hundred heavy bags of garbage in one day and that will take all of the energy you had.... [tags: Odor, Olfaction, Wilkes-Barre, Pennsylvania]

The Republican Party was founded by anti-slavery activists on March 20th, 1854, and is represented by its mascot, the elephant. Often referred to as the “Grand Old Party”, or GOP, Republicans favor customs that exude traditional Christian values with a platform based on American Conservatism.

- Jesus Christ or the professed Jewish Messiah was tried for terrible blasphemy. It was a great catastrophe. Had Jesus given a fair trial then His claim for divine Messiahship would have been established. Unfortunately the laws were bent and the eyes were closed and thus a fair judgment was prevented. There is no doubt that this was the most terrible miscarriage of justice ever experienced by the mankind. In open court it was admitted by Jesus Christ that He was God in human flesh. What ever would happen one day He would appear as the King of the most sacred place that is Israel and finally of all the universe.... [tags: blasphemy, religion, prophecy]

- Handel's Messiah Producers Qunicy Jones and Mervyn Warren took George Frederic Handel’s Messiah for a spin and did a wonderful job with it. They took a classical masterpiece and funk-defied it. This was one of the most important pieces of music to come across in decades, taking Handel’s Messiah to the masses of R & B lovers. In true style, the composer re-arranged Handel’s Messiah, to produce a classic collection of black music, while at the same time, carrying a European and Western tradition that is opposing to African origins of Black American music....
