Cash: The Man Comes Around - Generation Kill Endingor HERE : Johnny Cash "partially sings and partially speaks the words, which contain numerous Biblical references, predominantly from the Book of Revelation.
The song never names "the Man" who will come around, though an obvious inference would be the Second Coming of Jesus Christ. According to the song,
when the Man comes around, there will be judgment for some and salvation for others. A series of images depict the horror and confusion of that judgment day." (YouTube)
The Man Comes Around by Johnny Cash "There's a man going around taking names

There'll be a golden ladder reaching down
When the Man comes around" (sing365.com)

Oceans spanning beyond my sight

And I've seen eighty-five thousand people
All in one room, together as equals..."

You're riding high in April,

A poet, a pawn and a king." - with the VIDEO (YouTube)

Blood on the leaves and blood at the root,
Black bodies swinging in the southern breeze,
Strange fruit hanging from the poplar trees..." - witha
lesson plan(Teachervision) :
"This lesson focuses on Billie Holiday's signature song, "Strange
Fruit," a protest song Lewis Allen (Abel Meeropol) wrote in 1938
about the ongoing and intransigent problem of lynching in the
American South... Working in small teams, students analyze
a variety of primary source materials related to lynching (news articles,
letters written to or written by prominent Americans, pamphlets, broadsides,
etc.) in order to assess the effectiveness of the anti-lynching campaign
spearheaded by African-Americans."
Happiness is NOT the Meaning of Life - Alan Watts
"Some of history's greatest philosophers have spent their entire lives writing about the meaning of life.
Why are we here? Surely there must be a reason?
Many people in western culture believe the meaning of life is to "be happy".
Alan Watts has a brilliant way of eloquently challenging this notion.
If we were to live in a state of eternal bliss, then bliss would become dull. Without darkness, there would be no light.
Without pain, there would be no pleasure.
Happiness is based in perspective. Embrace every aspect of life, the good and the bad, and learn to see the beauty in it." (YouTube)

a nonprofit that provides housing and services to ex-prisoners in Harlem." (Neatorama)

Life- a FLASH animation by Bozzetto (albinoblacksheep.com)
Last Request - animation FLASH "Before a condemned man is executed he is customarily offered
one last meal of his own choice. It's debatable if this is an act of
kindness or simply a cruel joke, but the final choice that some prisoners
make offers an intriguing insight into the minds of these men and the
lives they lived. The Texas Department of Corrections carefully logs
the last meals of their captors and I offer a few of these choices,
along with the men themselves, for your consumption."
