CAN WE WATCH THE MOVIE?

i feel like no movie is better than the book, but i like to be able to see what it going on. not just read about it. I feel like we should watch the movie to get a visual understanding of what is going on. When i was in 8th grade we had this thing called "Battle Of The Books".... in order to participate in the competition we had to read at least 12 books and pass the test on them. i read 6. I watched the movie to half of them and managed to pass the tests. The point of the story is that the movie sometimes helps understand the book...... lesley was part of the team hehe

EVERYTHING IS A REMIX

these will not... i repeat will not be organized notes. i am switching back and forth in between the notes and video


Remix: To combine or edit existing material to produce something new.
"REMIX mostly applied to music"
Remix: the arrangement and transformation of samples.
best metaphor for creativity- the light bulb... you start off with nothing but there boom a switch.. lies there is always a mess there isnt a switch it doesnt automatically happen
HOW DO WE CREATE?
there are 3 elements
 Domain Knowledge ... do what everyone else does speak the same way and maybe later add your own twist to it
1. Copying... mimic what others are doing  after you can copy what others are doing then you move to the next thing
2. Transformation... taking any existing thing and making variations..(bigger better faster)
THOMAS EDISON DID NOT INVENT THE LIGHT BULB!!!!! WTF!!!
3. Combinations... for example printing press.. the ink paper etc were already invented.. someone just combined it all


To be continued

MUSIC AS LITERATURE

Wow music as literature..... that is mind blowing. I have never seen it in such way. A song/ rap is the same thing as poetry or telling a story they are exactly the same only shown in different ways. All of the listed things to find the difference to, i could not find one. A symphony tells as story usually. there is this one play were each character had its own instrument noise. It told the story quite well. My point is that a symphony a rap a song a poem..etc dont have many differences in my opinion.

"Immigrants in our own Land"

honestly i really enjoyed this poem. I usually only like poems that have a patter to them or that rhyme. but this poem got my attention. The poem tells a story. This is what i got from the poem. People are going into another land to have better life and seek for better instead of worse. When they get here they are told that they are going to be put to work. they are dont get the chances that they said they would. the other thing that got my attention was when they said that many dont make it out the same. i was like whaaaaaaaa. I was confused if weather or not they went to like a work camp. all in all this poem was really good and i cant wait to see what my classmates have to say about it.
