  • Armageddon Music Techniques

    During the late 90s, Aerosmith was asked to produce a touching piece for the soundtrack of the movie Armageddon, which starred singer Steven Tyler’s daughter (The Rob). With the help of schmaltz “queen” Dianne Warren (author of other sappy songs like “How Do I Live” and “Because You Loved Me”), the band was able to perform a piece that was full of gusto and romance, wrapped up by their music video in a melodramatic bow (Farber). “I Don’t Want to Miss a Thing” is a song that Carl Wilson would most certainly find chockfull of “saturated, demonstrative sentiment” (Wilson 54-55). Its high levels of emotional intensity and excessive passion ooze out of the song’s every detail, making even the band’s physical actions reek of schmaltz. This piece…

  • Leaving Mango Street Analysis

    Growing up I heard a lot of different terms. The saying “But I know how those things go” kinds means you’ve been there and you’ve done that, and that’s how you know how things go. Another example would if in the past you loaned friend money but that friend never paid you back. But then later that same friend came again and asked to borrower money again. Well you do know how that’s gonna go that friend may not pay you back once again. The term “People like us” is usually used when speaking, or…

  • Personal Narrative: The Trip To The Grocery Store

    The Trip to the Grocery Store I haven’t seen him in weeks or maybe even months, I thought as I glared across the small distance between where I was standing and my dad’s car. With my One Direction CD clutched in my hands, I started to close the distance by walking towards his car. I opened the door and slipped in, and then he started to drive to the grocery store. At the time I was under the illusion that my dad would be even slightly happy to see me, but no. That naïve thought was ripped away…

  • Personal Narrative: My Junior Year In College

    I think it’s weird how water looks almost black under frozen lakes. When it’s warm the water seems so friendly and inviting, but during the winter it’s almost ominous. “I just don’t feel the same way about you anymore, Aleksei” that’s definitely the worst thing anyone has ever said to me. It feels like it didn’t happen, but at the same time it feels like it’s the only thing that’s happened all week. Everything else is just jaded by those words. This was my first day of my junior year in college,…

  • Research Paper On Nick Vujici

    How Nick Vujici is an example of a creator is that when people drag him down due to being born with no arms nor legs, he still got right back up and fought twice as hard right back. How instead of walking away from his problems he approach them and overcome it. At one point he did play the role of a Victim and just wanted to the easy way out from his misery. But every time he attempted to commit suicide it’s like God saved him. From the youtube video, he said “... I am here for a reason, sure…

  • Personal Narrative: A Day Without Feminism

    A normal day without feminism...the thought alone frightens me. The most important acts in the past made my life today much easier. We don’t have true equality yet, but the civil rights and feminist movement made things much easier for me to live in this day and age as a black woman. If the feminist movement never happened, I believe I would gain a few simplistic things, I also believe there would be a lot of suffering that would go along with those benefits. Suffering that would leave me and a…

  • Personal Narrative: My Home

    My arms were killing me. In an effort to distract myself from the pain, I began to mentally go through my favorite scenes from Harry potter, but even the thought of my favorite book couldn’t keep my mind off my discomfort for long. Huffing, I lugged the water-filler bucket uphill, careful not to spill too much of its precious contents. That would mean another trek downhill and I’ve had enough of that for one day. I brightened up when I neared my destination- a simple hut made of mud and clay,…

  • My Writing As A Part Of My Life

    Throughout my many years of schooling I have found that I was never one for reading. Truthfully I have only read a handful of books in my life, most of which I never bothered to finish. I’ve always seen this part of me as ironic. I couldn 't stand reading, but I was always placed in honors english classes. At one point in my life I even had aspirations to become an author. In order for me to be interested in any type of reading material, I have found it has to be taboo or morally questioning. It…
