ESSAY option #1

It is obvious that Clarisse is the complete opposite of Beatty. Bradbury showed the different tone between the two. In the following paragraphs i will explain how Bradburys tone towards there two characters were different. 
     
Bradbury shows Clarisse as the character that is most out there. She thinks differently and Bradbury does a really good job in showing that. Clarisse says that she is 17 and crazy. This clearly states that she thinks in a way that isn't really custom in that time. She tells Guy that she is not afraid of him, which is why she talks to him. She likes to ask questions, She is bold, brave, and curious which are all characteristics that people don't have in that time period. She also tells Guy to observe the sky and how there is a man on the moon, Clarisse like to look around and observe. That is another characteristic that isn't common during this time. Beatty represents the complete opposite.


Beatty thinks in the most generic way according to Bradbury. He is a fireman that burns books because that is his job. He doesnt get curious to see what he is burning ever. He likes to follow the rules that already exist, for example in the movie "the lego movie" everyone follows the same set of rules. They are more like guide lines, they stay in place and do what they are told. No one is creative or cares about anything going on around them. Just like Beatty, he doenst believe that there is another way to deal with books other than burning them. He also wants to arrest his fellow companion for reading a book and that leads him to his doom. the one interesting part was that Beatty wanted to end his life which is why he provoked Guy to roast him. All this come to prove that Beatty was a generic human being that had nothing going for him unlike Clarisse.


In conclusion Bradburys tone towards Clarisse was nice and showed that she was different from the other characters in the book. Beatty was more of a generic common human being that followed rules there the tone was more dark and negative, which was perfect for setting the mood for the rest of the story.

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.
