Concert Review 1
I am doing a review on the Eastview Patriots Marching Band. This is only their second year performing, so thought it would be interesting to see how they did. I went to see their halftime show on October 18th. The percussion section was set up completely on the sidelines, while the rest of the band marched on the field in groups of ten or so spread out over the center of the field. The band consist of 95 students. Broken down into sections they would consist of 18 percuss...

“Xander Harris: The Guy Who Fixes the Windows”
At its heart, Buffy the Vampire Slayer is a story about empowerment. It is a television show that turns horror movie tropes upside down and transforms the stereotypical scared, blonde cheerleader into someone to be feared. Joss Whedon has been quoted as saying: “The first thing I ever thought of when I thought of Buffy, the movie, was the little, blonde girl who goes into a dark alley and gets killed, in every horror movie. The idea of Buffy was...

- Interpretation of the Downton Abbey
British period drama Downton Abbey has become a global sensation since hitting our screens in 2010. An almost instant hit in the UK, series two cemented Downton as a worldwide "phenomenon" and one of the UK\'s biggest exports, with more than 100 countries owning the rights to broadcast the show.

- Henry Purcell\'s Dido and Aneas
1) As compared to singing style of the Gregorian Chant we listened to, what do you notice is the same or different in the vocal style of this singer?
The Gregorian Chants we listened to involved unaccompanied, monophonic music for voices. Most Gregorian chants consist of simple recitation on a monotone with only slight deviations from that single pitch. In comparison with Gregorian Chants, the vocal style of this singer is melismatic. The singer stretches the lyrics to add to the sad mood ...

- Music Sensorship
Everyone remembers Michael Jackson\'s red leather jacket covered with zippers and the sexy style of Madonna. MTV, or music television, nationally publicizes these images and entertainers, and others like them. The station also promotes an idealized teen lifestyle, reflecting the images of these famous artists, that contrasts with the realities of the Generation X lifestyle. While some view the station as illustrated radio or an entertainment network for viewers\' pleasure, others more accu...

1.The movie alludes to both Alice in Wonderland and The Wizard of Oz. Trinity tells Neo to "follow the white rabbit," as Alice did, and he does.Morpheus tells Neo that he has fallen down the rabbit hole and he may find out how deep the hole goes. Neo is given a choice between the blue pill and the red pill, as Alice was enticed to "Eat Me" and " Drink Me. " Another cybernaut tells Neo, "Fasten your seat belt, Dorothy, 'cause Kansas is goin' bye bye." . How do these references to other psychic jo...

With his latest offering, "Finding Forrester ", director Gus Van Sant redeems himself for his completely unnecessary color photocopy of "Psycho" from 1998. " Finding Forrester ", which details the bond that develops between two writers, an aged Pulitzer Prize-winner and a teenage boy from the Bronx, shares many similarities with Van Sant's mainstream calling card from 1997, ...
- jimi hendrix
Jimi Hendrix perhaps no other rock-and-roll trailblazer was
as original or as influential in such a short span of time as
Jimi Hendrix. Widely acknowledged as one of the most daring and
inventive virtuosos in rock history, Hendrix pioneered the
electric guitar (he played a right-handed Fender Stratocaster--
his "Electric Lady"--upside-down and left-handed) as an
electronic sound source capable of feedback, distortion, and a
host of other effects that could be crafted into ...

- All That Is: Incubus
Many bands are begun in high school with just a guitar, a set of drums, a garage, and a few good friends with the same passion for music, but not many rise to the status that Incubus has excelled themselves to in the years following high school. Throughout the past fifteen years, they have written and produced over sixteen albums and sold over sixty-five million albums worldwide (Sheffield p.1). With such hefty accomplishments already at their feet, they have propelled their names to the top o...
