In a satirical music video titled “Welcome to Hell,” the female members of the Saturday Night Live cast welcomed men to the world of sexism. Saturday Night Live is produced in New York City, with the actors doubling as writers for each script, including this video. The video was inspired by the recent sexual harassment allegations in Hollywood, starting with Harvey Weinstein. The video brought to light that although the accusations are new, sexual harassment is not. Throughout the video, the women portray multiple historical instances of sexism, such as the Salem Witch Trials and Rosie the Riveter.
In the music video “Drive By” by the band Train uploaded on Youtube.com, the singer is confessing his feelings to his romantic interest. Train uses rhetoric strategies to show the feelings of the singer, to the woman in the video. The main rhetoric strategy we will be looking at is pathos, we will cover some ethos, but not logos, as it driven mostly by emotions being a “love song”. The video start off with the singer on the phone with the woman, trying to tell her that he is sorry. He then goes and gets into his sports car and starts driving, It is not clear where he is going to yet, but it will be very important towards the end.
The era I chose to create my music video in is 1900-1919: Leading up to WWI. If I were in this time period and would want to make a video that accompanied a song, I would harness the use of stop-motion video, since it was a relatively new invention. The artist would start and stop the camera, make a very small adjustment, and then start and stop the camera again. This, when played back, captured the object moving very subtly, making it look like it was moving on its own.
Yes, Virginia, there was aSesame Streetbefore the Age of Elmo. This 1993 collection highlights the role of music in the long-running series from Children's Television Workshop, and reminds us that such Jim Henson creations as Big Bird, Oscar the Grouch, Cookie Monster, and Ernie and Bert were once part of a true ensemble of Muppet superstars. Nothing against Elmo, of course: kids adore him and he makes enough appearances in this anthology (including the show-stopping "Happy Tappin' with Elmo") to keep today's tykes happy. Also included is Ernie's classic "Rubber Duckie" (really, who doesn't know the words to that?) , Oscar's anthemic "I Love Trash," you-know-who's "C Is for Cookie," and Big Bird's Big Finale, a rendition of "Sing" that
After the release of the Hunchback of Notre Dame in 1996, the public was outraged by the both, offensive title and the ultimate moral message it conveys about people with disabilities (Norden, 2013, 163) embeded with questions such as: is beauty really skin deep, can people who do not have external beauty experience true love, how masculine of feminine are the representations of these characters? After the representation of a character as an animal in Beuty and the Beast, Disney decided to explore the stereotype of handicapped people in the society and how they find their true self through the process of self-actualization. Norden suggested that disability studies scholars found a paradigm which explains the status of a disabled person as a
The music of video games has changed greatly in the past decades. The sound has gradually evolved from chiptunes to symphonies performed by full orchestras, and many of the tracks are composed by world famous artists. Yet, in spite of its ever growing popularity, it is still hardly considered a serious and respectable genre of music that could hold its own in the world of today's music industry. The United States' annual music awards show, The Grammy awards, has only recognized video game soundtracks two times in its history; most recently in the year 2012 when the compelling soundtrack for the ps3 game Journey by Austin Wintory was nominated in the Best Score Soundtrack For Visual Media category. It was a huge step for the lovers of the genre;
Maroon Five has always been one of my favorite bands since I was a little girl, but I never really listened to Adam Levine’s lyrics. “She will be loved” by Maroon Five has a deeper meaning than the one portrayed on the music video. If you look into the lyrics, you will be able to see it’s about a girl who obviously has some love issues, and a guy who loves her for who she really is. Even though he is always stuck into the friend zone. First, Adam Levine starts out with singing, “Beauty queen of only eighteen, she had some trouble with herself.’
On March 26th, 2016, a Youtube video from San Francisco State University went viral, as it features a white male student being attacked by a black female student verbally and physically for wearing dreadlocks. The female students repeatedly yells at the white male student, telling him that he was “culturally appropriating” her culture, therefore making it-the dreadlocks, offensive to wear. She later on asks a nearby student if he could fetch a pair of scissors so that she could cut it off, and the video ends there. This situation is not exactly uncommon anymore; in fact, the term “cultural appropriation” has been used in great abundance this year. For example, Coldplay’s music video starring Beyonce has been accused of Indian cultural appropriation, as it features Beyonce wearing traditional Desi clothes, and a
The role of the music in the film “The Killer” is to enhance feelings of observers: this is evident from repetition of one music during sad scenes, from dynamic music during tense scenes and from the lyrics of the songs of Jenny. The music in the film enhances our feelings about sad scenes. The director used one music several times for the sad scenes. First time we hear this music in the church after shooting in the restaurant, Ah, John is shot and bullets are taken from his back, his face shows suffering and at the same time, he feels sorry about Jenny.
We all want revenge, we have all had something, or someone, do something terrible and we all wish and hope to get back at them. Hoping it will solve the issue and the hurt caused that we actually trusted them in the first place at all. While Derek laid in prison, raped, and utterly broken from the inside out, Dr. Bob Sweeney asked him “Has anything you’ve done made your life better?”. Derek then put his head down in shame, he had finally realized after so many years, that hate and revenge never really made him happy, and he was never truly satisfied with any of the choices he had made in life. Even near the end of the movie, they point out the same concept.
