The point of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

the point of pouring a shit ton of ice water over yourself is because when one suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) one of the affects the disease has is a numbness throughout the body, as well as struggling to breathe, and both these are meant to temporarily happen when doused in freezing water. It’s to raise awareness of what ALS feels like and encourage donations towards research and cures.

In preperation for his role as The Joker, Heath Ledger not only read the comics that went along with the script for The Dark Knight, but also locked himself away in a hotel in London where he formed a little diary and experimented with voices.

Here is what went on in that diary:

Jesters, clowns and jokers appear among the images in the diary, as do pictures of actor Malcolm McDowell as Alex in A Clockwork Orange.

And, of course, images of THE Joker from the Batman comics.

The actor wrote out his lines for the hospital scene by hand in the diary.

The Make-Up Test

“This is the make-up test," Ledger said as he thumbed through the diary's last pages, noting that his son came back to write a note underneath the picture when the film wrapped eight months later.

The Goodbye…

"At the end of shooting, he wrote goodbye on the back of the last page. It was hard to read that."

"I ended up landing more in the realm of a psychopath — someone with very little to no conscience towards his acts. He’s just an absolute sociopath, a cold-blooded, mass-murdering clown."

SOURCE

Does the pic of the make up test say “8 Months Ago Trapped Now!”?

Yes, he came back and wrote that 8 months after the movie wrapped.
