How many times have your parents kept you from seeing a movie because of its rating? Well, you can thank the MPAA for that. The Motion Picture Association of America is the organization which rates movies. It's one thing for your parents to monitor what you watch, but the MPAA is a secret group of people. You don't know who they are. How can they have any idea what sort of films are appropriate for you? The MPAA is untrustworthy, unnecessary, and should be eliminated.
Martin Luther King, Jr. once said in his “Letter From a Birmingham Jail”, “Time itself is neutral; it can either be used destructively or constructively... Human progress never rolls in on wheels of inevitability. It comes through the tireless efforts of man...We must use time creatively in the knowledge that time is always ripe to do right.” King is absolutely right, here; in order to make any progress or improvement, one needs to use time correctly in order to get a positive response. If one does not put their efforts forth, and expects a positive outcome, they will not see one unless they exercise what they know and use their time constructively. In any discourse community time is valued greatly. A discourse community is defined by Mr. Brown,
We all have stories and memories tied to songs that have become a part of who are. Remember the violins playing in the background while watching a sad movie or the song that helped you through difficult times or the song you and your friends sang while attending a concert? Whether it’s on the television, the radio, in a movie, in the car, or at a sporting event, music is everywhere. Feeling the rhythm of music brings us so much joy and excitement but playing musical instrument is even more fulfilling because it has many benefits. Everything I do revolves around my music. I have been around music all my life, whether it was listening to it or playing it. I’m very passionate about music and I love playing an instrument. The instrument
What is the real definition of insanity? Merriam Webster’s definition is “severe mental illness : the condition of being insane.” Albert Einstein’s definition is “doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. And my definition is “running the same set over and over again expecting the freshmen to hit their set.” Unfortunately, this is a daily occurrence for members of a marching band, who spend countless hours walking from one side of a field to another just so that they can perform at a game while the audience is at the concessions. This illusion of importance gives most bands an egotistical view of themselves and an unjustified self confidence. They build themselves up with dreams of making
Having a job is an essential part of living on this earth. Without having a job we would be homeless or suffering. As I grow older and am slowly approaching adulthood I have to start thinking about what career I want to pursue. College can be an essential thing and a advantage for when looking at a job. After I am done with college I want to become a music executive. Becoming a music Executive is an important role in my life. I say this because I will achieve this goal.
Finding one passion could be tricky. Sometimes we confuse passion with skills, passion is something that you do and enjoy no matter how tired or even if it doesn’t make you a millionaire. Skills are something that you are good at but you don’t enjoy, one will continue on this path because we need to pay our bills. This doesn’t make it right or wrong but we should be happy with ourselves doing what we enjoy.
This was the greatest moment of my life!! You would not believe what Just happened I just met my idol Elvis! He has been someone that I have admired for years. When I first heard his voice for the first time I was in love. I began to listen to the radio and search for music that was different to the normal show tunes and novelty ballets at the time. I and other teenagers hungered for music with a beat that we could dance to. I heard his voice on the radio and my family thought that he was black, but it was announced that he is not. I followed up on him and was able to experience him on the television. I then received the opportunity to see one of his concerts, and he was incredible.
"It will probably rain tomorrow,” Margie said, “but the picnic will not be cancelled since the park has a shelter.”
Being a part of the band program has shaped who I am today as a person in many ways. It is in all parts my identity, interest, and talent, and in three to four months out of the year, it is my life. As a nervous freshman about to embark on my high school journey, I had the choice to end my band career. Despite not knowing at all what to expect, I decided to pursue the fine arts into
The usual age of artists nowadays can be surmised as very young compared to what was popularized in the mid-80s to the early-90s. We all have been amazed by the impressive talents of musicians as young as 14 until the mid-adult age of 25. It is quite an elating feeling to know that those who are dubbed as The Millenials have this awe-inspiring trait of being confident, despite their seeming inexperience.
It’s rare to find meaningful music today in the cluster of regurgitating pop and rap music being played on the radio. It’s sad to see these artists who can have big impact on the world do not take the opportunity. I can’t put all the blame on the artists though. Why wouldn’t they keep putting out this type of music when the masses keep throwing money and support for more of their garbage? It takes time to find a band or group that serves a purpose, sends a powerful message, and simply produces great music. I came across a band called Twenty One Pilots, thanks to my friend Ronnie. Twenty One Pilots consists of two members: Tyler Joseph (Lead Singer) and Josh Dun (Drummer). The band was formed in 2009 and has aggregated a large following the
As a young aspiring musician in middle school, I wanted to start a band desperately. Instead, I was known as Emerson Middle School 's’ music freak. I posted flyers in businesses around my hometown and online ads. I wanted to be like Amy Lee from Evanescence terribly, but my taste in music was different than most people. When my fellow classmates heard about my compositions and ideas, they thought it was a joke. At first when my classmates told me that they wanted to be in my band, I was overjoyed. I thought that I would be able to have a group to perform and collaborate with in compositions. After a month, my classmates told me it was a joke, and they thought I knew about it. I was heartbroken, but I knew that I needed to be in an environment
The power of music can connect and represent the words that cannot be spoken. Music unites people, nature, or even beliefs. Don’t you desire to reach people using the universal language - music? Film music is without a doubt about touching audience’s minds and evoke people in a certain way. It certainly isn’t around the music or the orchestra or the audience, however, it is the interconnection of all these elements that makes music alive. Being a film composer means that you will be the catalyst to trigger the crowd’s sensations.

Assalamualaikum and good day, ladies and gentlemen. My name is Nur Shila binti Khairul Hisam and it is really great to see you all here today. Before I start, let’s have a quick question and answer. Do you ever realize that music has its own healing power to human being? I have a quote from Bob Marley who says that, “one good thing about music, when it hits you, you feel no pain”.
