My Life In The Media

How do you see the Media?

When the word media comes to mind I think about how vast the world is, and I contemplate about its ability to create and change people’s many emotions. The media can be life changing, seriously, and can cause very dramatic effects on people. That’s the word dramatic! The media is a huge and unjust web of drama. Although it may spit out new social trends and let us stalk our celebrity crushes. The media is a ruthless territory that will rip you apart without hesitation. After all the media did create one of our world’s most terrible disorders, Anorexia nervosa, an eating disorder that makes people lose more weight then what is considered healthy. Image! The media gets in our heads and mashes our traditional way of thinking making us believe that we have to dress a certain way, eat a certain, shape our bodies a certain way, and over all just live a certain way. How do you spell unnecessary?
To be Media Literate in my opinion one must live a life that is technologically dependent, because in our day you literally don’t know anything unless you’re connected to the web in some way. Is this a trick to get our money out of our pockets? Well possibly! Instagram, Twitter, Myspace, Facebook, Vine, and oh my even YouTube are all shapes and forms of the media influencing our lives, and if you have any of these accounts and know how to navigate yourself through them then you are media literate.


Audi no compromise!

In the Audi commercial “Compromise scares us to” they are suggesting that compromise shouldn't be necessary when searching for cars! Audi support their suggestion by combining two different dog breeds, the Chihuahua and Doberman, which in reality could never actually mate. The author’s purpose is to inform buyers that compromise is dangerous when searching for a car, because the outcome is unpredictable. The makers of Audi write in a humorous tone for anyone that has ever compromised when searching for a car, and receive something that was out rite ridiculous.

New Report: The Weave Rampage

New York - Weave prices are soaring sky high, women are getting jumped, bagged, and cut left and right. No one is safe.


O'Nisha is scared to leave her home because she doesn't want to get the hair snatched off of her head. O'Nisha mentioned slavery, foreign weave trading, and even women getting their husbands in on the ambush.


"I knew it, I saw that girl get cut, and gon say she didn't get cut" said O'Nisha. "It was a set up from the very beginning the wife was the distraction, and then husband ran up behind and cut it all off. Malaysian, Indian, Brazilian all gone" .


The Struggle is officially real. You aren't safe, your homes aren't safe, nothing is safe. Crazed women are jumping out of windows with nets in order to "bag up" other women. Now females are so afraid that they are attacking others in hopes that they won't be attacked themselves.


"I'm scared for my life and my hair, yesterday I saw a girl with some good body wave, wavey when wet weave, then I blinked and she was bald" said Shambrea. "It was all gone. They call it snatching. she got snatched. What if i'm next!"


32 Inch Brazilian, and 26 inch Malaysian weave all down the drain. The weave industry in in turmoil. Why are the weave prices so high, and how can we possible bring them back down. Walking down the street you are eligible to get your ankles slit or your knee caps cut.


"I was walking down the street trying my best to get to the corner store without being noticed and before I knew it they had gotten me" said J'Ana. "Oh Lord I had been got. They bagged me right on up. They threw a fish net on me, dragged me to the side and cut off five bundles of my Peruvian naturally straight 1B 34 inch weave. Let it be known if I don't get my hair back, next time ill be the cutter and not the cuttie."


There is a Vicious cycle going on, and I'm not sure if a solution is even in site. How many bundles have to be cut before we get to the center of this problem? The world may never know.

The Holocaust Rewrite

The Holocaust which originally began on January 30, 1933 and ended on May 8, 1945 never actually occurred, or at least not the way that it was once told. . . There was never any racism again the Jews in fact it was just a huge cover up. The Holocaust was darkness created to over ride maybe one of the craziest experiments known to man. . . It was the creations of superhuman beings. On January 30th a new bread was born. The experiments began with the need to better Germany’s military strength, but in order to increase their man power they needed human subjects. So where to turn? They began pulling from the poor! The people that lived on the streets, and the people who were known but would be easily forgotten. Never discriminating on their prey, they even forcibly turned to kidnapped children some whose parents were paid off and others that weren’t. This was a huge operation, and now you’ll see why they needed such of a cover up. Schools, training bases, and education programs the whole shebang, were all required in order to teach these new government recruits. There were ranking systems, ranks one through five, and there were even requirements set that only ranks four and five could achieve. The world around them were changing for the worst, but little to their knowledge did they know that they would soon be a force to be reckoned with. Once the poor and the blue collared, these citizens where now the apex predators of Germany and now the biggest threat to even the people who created them. Talk about power? There were children with telekinesis, the ability to move objects with your mind, and adults who could even control gravity. There were benders, people who could control the elements, and people who could even travel through parallel dimensions. A new war was about to begin and a new hierarchy was created. They called themselves the Unique, and they had to ability to change the world for the better. Unfortunately after Germany began to realize this the Unique were plotted against and sniffed out of every nook and cranny until they were all backed against the wall of freedom and slavery. Thus beginning the war of the Unique! Hopelessness soon filled the air due to their social status and their lack of knowledge, although they had super powers they lacked the smarts and artillery to withstand both Germany’s man and fire power. They crashed and burned. They fought in between their own ranks killing each other and weakening their own forces, and even discriminated against their weaker kind, all ranks below 3, and finally crumbled under the forces of Germany’s original military forces. The war ended in Germany’s favor, but at the cost of approximately eleven million lives. The Holocaust was an example of possibly one of the worst ways to end a self inflicted war. To conclude Hitler was not a crazed dictator who only favored blond hair, and blue eyed people. . . He was an everyday grandpa dressed up and fed speeches; he was a figure head paid at the highest bitter in order for his face to be used as the core of all evil!

1984 Daylight

www.youtube.com/watch?v=Wg9Urm2_7xQ


I chose the song Daylight, by Maroon 5, for 1984 because this song reminds me of the forbidden love that is shown by the book. It begins off saying "Here I am waiting, I’ll have to leave soon, why am I holdin’ on we knew this day would come, we knew it all along how did it come so fast”. This part of the song reminds me of Winston thinking about the thought police, and wondering how much time he has left with Julia. Then it reminds me of the time when Winston and Julia finally getting caught at the top of that apartment. Once the song finally hits the chorus it reminds me of the suspense filled time Winston spends with Julia. Showing how frustrating it was to meet in secret “and when the daylight comes I’ll have to go But, tonight I’m ‘gonna hold you so close ‘cuz in the daylight, we’ll be on our own but, tonight I need to hold you so close”.


Here I am waiting
I'll have to leave soon
Why am I holding on?
We knew this day would come
We knew it all along
How did it come so fast?

This is our last night but it's late
And I'm trying not to sleep
Cause I know, when I wake, I will have to slip away

And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

Here I am staring at your perfection
In my arms, so beautiful
The sky is getting bright, the stars are burning out
Somebody slow it down

This is way too hard, cause I know
When the sun comes up, I will leave
This is my last glance that will soon be memory

And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

I never want it to stop
Because I don't wanna start all over
Start all over
I was afraid of the dark
But now it's all that I want
All that I want, all that I want

And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

And when the daylight comes I'll have to go
But tonight I'm gonna hold you so close
Cause in the daylight we'll be on our own
But tonight I need to hold you so close

Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-whoa, oh-whoa, oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh
Oh-whoa (yeah), oh-whoa (yeah), oh-whoa (yeah), oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh (yeah)
Oh-whoa (yeah), oh-whoa (yeah), oh-whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh-oh

My Final Entry #7

Media Literacy is every student’s dreams come true in a language arts class. There were never any textbook or workbooks, and we honestly never read that much either . . . well other than the time we read 1984 in class. In this class we stayed focus on the present, and left all of the dead and boring Arthurs behind. We crossed out science fiction, and journeyed through the mind of our peers affected by the media today. Although I ready knew this, Media literacy has forged in my brain that our future will continue to revolve, and that this rotation with continue to accelerate as we become more in tuned with the internet and other media consumed matters. The Media will never be a fad, but always relevant. In this class I have learned how to write a four sentence summary, a précis, on any topic . . . including videos, articles, and summaries. I’ve learned how to write newspaper articles, and look deeper into the matter of certain subjects. Finally I’ve also learned how to hate a book so much that the pages burst in flames. 1984 was the most boring book that I have experience in my entire life, and if I could change one thing about this course then it would definitely be that. I am very sure that there are many other books that could reply 1984, and the media literacy department should definitely seek out those alternatives! My favorite aspect of this class was our freedom, and our ability to turn in our work online. Although, in my opinion working Schoology at first was a little confusing, so maybe the teachers could spend a little more time explaining it. Schoology not only allowed us to work from home just in case we missed a day in school but also submit our work from home, and that was a huge success.
