For the crust, blend crumbs with other ingredients and press into the bottom of a greased, springform pan and refrigerate.
For the cake, preheat oven to 325° F. Melt chocolate and liquor (1 min on high in Microwave, depending on wattage); stir until smooth. Put next five ingredients into a blender and blend on the slowest speed. Set aside 10 ounces of this mixture. Add chocolate liquor mixture to the cheese in the blender and mix.
Put chocolate/cheese mixture into the pan with the crust. Then put vanilla mixture in, in four even blobs. Use a knife to swirl the two together. Bake for 50 minutes. Cool completely, then refrigerate.
