|Christine Anu as Kali in Matrix Reloaded .|
(Sanskrit: काळी, IPA: [kɑːliː]),
also known as Kālikā
is the Hindu goddess associated with empowerment, shakti.
The name Kali comes from kāla, which means black, time, death, lord of death, Shiva.
Since Shiva is called Kāla—the eternal time—Kālī, his consort, also means "Time" or "Death" (as in time has come).
Hence, Kāli is the Goddess of Time and Change.
Although sometimes presented as dark and violent, her earliest incarnation as a figure of annihilator of evil forces still has some influence.
Various Shakta Hindu cosmologies, as well as Shākta Tantric beliefs, worship her as the ultimate reality or Brahman.
She is also revered as Bhavatārini
(literally "redeemer of the universe").
Comparatively recent devotional movements largely conceive Kāli as a benevolent mother goddess"

When I started looking through the cast of Enter the Matrix I saw
Chistine Anu had voiced the character Kali in this game/movie as well as playing the part in the movie Matrix Reloaded.
Chistine Anu started her career as a chart topping singer in Australia.
Her first song was a revamped Paul Kelly song called Last Train
which came out in 1993, the same year as
Soul Asylum released their song Runaway Train .
Her follow-up, Monkey and the Turtle, was based on a traditional story.
You might want to take a look at the beginning of the
Monkey and the Turtle clip where the camera starts off on the
Virgin of Guadalupe and pans straight to Christine as in maybe a
suggestion of her being one and the same as the Virgin?
My Island Home released in 1995 was probably the song Christine is best known for.
A song she sang at the closing of the 2000 Olympics in Sydney.
Now Until the Break of Day
on his Something for Everybody album.
It was released as a single and the video then won another ARIA award and led to her being cast in Moulin Rouge.
The single Sunshine On A Rainy Day was a Top 40 hit for 13 weeks in Australia.
Christine has also appeared in an Australian stage version of the
Little Shop of Horrors.
But not Tank Girl.
" Pope Francis has led his first mass since returning to his native Latin America, warning the faithful against "ephemeral idols" like money and power at Brazil's most revered shrine.Tens of thousands of pilgrims who had braved rain and cold cheered when the Pope arrived at the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida in Sao Paulo state and entered its grandiose basilica.
"What joy I feel as I come to the house of the mother of every Brazilian, the Shrine of Our Lady of Aparecida," he said in his homily.
The 76-year-old pontiff, who arrived in Brazil on Monday for the weeklong World Youth Day celebrations, is seeking to re-energise his young flock on his first overseas trip since becoming Latin America's first pope in March.
The region is home to 40 per cent of the world's 1.2 billion Catholics but Brazil has seen its flock dwindle while Evangelicals gain ground.
An estimated 15,000 people packed the basilica for the mass while another 200,000 were expected to gather outside, with 5,000 police and soldiers providing security.
They waved flags as Pope Francis passed by in an open-top jeep, blessing the crowd after arriving by plane and military helicopter.
"Long live the Pope, long live the Pope," the crowd chanted.
Pilgrims spent the night in the streets despite the foul weather, hoping for a glimpse of the Argentine pontiff.
"We want the pope to tell us there is hope for a better world," 47-year-old Jose Antonio Rocha said.
"We also want Francis' example to bring renewal to the church which sorely needs it."
Joaquim Pedro dos Santos, 77, had arrived from Minas Gerais state on Tuesday.
"I don't care about the rain, I want to see the pope in person even fleetingly in the street," he said.
On Tuesday, Rio de Janeiro's subway broke down, causing chaos for throngs of pilgrims heading to a mass inaugurating the World Youth Day festivities.
Brazil's ability to handle this week is seen as a test of its capacity to host the football World Cup next year and the Olympic Games in 2016.
After mass, the pontiff will board his jeep to cover the more than two kilometres separating the shrine and the Bom Jesus seminary where he will rest and have lunch.
Last year, 10 million pilgrims visited Our Lady of Aparecida, which was proclaimed Brazil's patroness in 1930 and is celebrated on October 1"

Is it just me, or does that altar look like it is in the middle of a dartboard?
