Project Four: Looking Back

For project four i was in a group with nate, meghan, alexa, and rycharde.
I really hated that book we had to teach a chapter of. I thought it was soooo boring, no offense. I enjoyed the second part of the project way more. I feel like our group worked well together once we stopped goofing around on farmville and actually got some work done. We still have to teach the class about our topic next week but im very excited to show off our work.

project three looking back

This was the whole visual text project thing.

Not gonna lie it was my least favorite project of the semester. Only because i couldnt really grasp the idea of how to analyze a visual text. when i had to write my paper i struggled a lot with how not to summarize what i was seeing and to critically think and analyze it.

When i made my scrapblog i kinda just threw it together (not gonna lie) i thought about how the pictures went together and i found a playground for the background. i thought it all fit but i see where you could get confused about the intended audience

strawberry fields forever

so today in class we listened to different versions of “strawberry fields forever” by The Beatles. love love love the beatles! (but not as much as aerosmith<3) i thought it was a really good example for revising. i really enjoyed this class today. I like how we could pin point all the changes that they made and also how they kind of morphed some of the stuff from different versions into their master version of the song.

i wish we could listen to music in class ALL THE TIME hahaha

aerosmith

okay…i know you said we could have like one or two personal blogs..so yeah here goes.
All over the internet I am finding articles saying that Steven Tyler has quit the band..
You may not know this but aerosmith is my all time favorite band! I even have a tattoo that says “Dream On” this band means a lot to me because me and my dad are both fanatics and weve gone to see them play live ever since i was a little kids, i cant honestly tell you how many times ive seen them play.
Steven Tyler has been qouted saying he wants to focus on “Brand Tyler” and Joe Perry has been saying that the other band members are going to have a meeting trying to decide if they wanted to replace Steven Tyler.

I just don’t think anyone can replace Steven Tyler…his voice is so unique that Aerosmith just can’t exist without him…

My opinion is that they all should make up and just retire the band because they are old and have made enough music for like 5 modern bands.

My heart is breaking while I’m listening to “Hole in my Soul”

im hoping this will get resolved..
