The movie shows how Charlotte goes from being a child to an adolescent. She learns that her mother isn’t always right and she doesn’t always need to be driven by her. For instance, another topic that the movie has, and that Charlotte copes with, is the first time having sex and first love. The first time she meets Joe, is when he comes around asking if they “got moved in alright” as he says. We see that when the car stops, the music starts playing and when Joe turns around, he sparkle and look like an angel.

The setting of the film is in the the late 1990s. The songs that play throughout the movie are meant to be a playlist that could have been found on a typical 90s teenager’s cassette tapes, and the audience will be delighted to hear some old 90s classics that could possibly bring back waves of nostalgia to older viewers. For example, during the famous tunnel scene, David Bowie’s “Heroes” is heard. The lyrics to the song describes a triumphant feeling very similar to what Charlie is feeling in that moment. The lines from the first verse “I, I will be king/And you, you will be queen” symbolize how Charlie feels about Sam and what he is hoping for their relationship to

When the organizers of the White House event called, Miranda proposed a rap about Hamilton, and they said yes. That evening in May, Miranda and the other performers—among them Esperanza Spalding, the jazz bassist and vocalist, and James Earl Jones—were introduced to the President. Miranda asked him to sign a copy of “Dreams from My Father” that he’d bought at the airport.

I was only 6 years old when my father bought a brand new TV and the show that plays on basic channel was Charlie Angels. Farrah Fawcett was culture shocking to me because she have thick, long, blonde, feathery hair, and blue eyes. Watching her on TV was a positive experience because was inspirational and a role model to me. She and her co-stars were called the “Angels” working for a private detective agency and often go undercover as strippers, models, and cocktail waitresses to capture bad guys. Farrah projected this image as strong, furious, and smart detective.
Many people on my team identify as lesbian or bisexual, and conversations regarding this topic take place daily. One major conversation that took place was about a girl on my team who everyone believes to be gay despite her having a long-term boyfriend. A specific example was when we traveled on the bus we brought a stereo system and played karaoke, when it was her turn to sing, the person in charge of music played the song Hot N Cold by Katy Perry which alludes to kissing a girl. Although she is a good sport, it is not acceptable behavior to categorize someone for their sexuality in a general setting. It also begs the question as to why there is such a consensus on the team that everyone believes she is a lesbian.

With the success of Tyler’s plays learning about forgiveness and family, something else must come out of his plays.

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 reading I will focus on this week is an article written by the journalist Kays Gary for the Charlotte Observer in June 1956. In the reading, Gary recalls his time spent with Elvis Presley during an interview with the local press before an early performance in North Carolina. Although Elvis was evidently being very flirtatious and open with his young female fans on the afternoon of the interview, his attitude towards the media is notably more hostile, with the singer remarking that “them critics don’t like to see nobody win doing any kind of music they don’t know nothin’ about” (p. 19). This bitter response to the criticism faced by Presley after his appearance on the Milton Bearle Show appears to indicate that Elvis believed rock and roll to have a high cultural value that made it inaccessible and unintelligible to certain groups of people (in this specific instance, journalists). However, when asked why he does what he does, Presley retorts with the disappointingly honest line that he performs for the money and would be willing to abandon rock and roll should a new style become more lucrative (p. 20).
