  • Aerosmith Recovery

    How would your life change if you went from being an average individual to a member of a rock band? For the various members of Aerosmith, their lives have altered and continue to alter each and every day- mostly for the good, of course. Each of the eight members of the band have issues they face together and issues they face alone, from members coming and leaving to dealing with personal matters. This is shown in their albums, Get a Grip and Done with Mirrors, just to name a couple. Due to the changes and challenges within the career of Aerosmith, recovery is a process they endure regularly. Summer of 1969 marks the beginning of Aerosmith’s career (Waller). They focus mostly on rock; however, they do incorporate funk, country, and old-time…

  • 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…

  • Reflection Of A Journey To A Trip To Germany

    Tour Reflection Going into this tour, I’m pretty sure I was one of the few choir members who had actually stepped foot into Germany before, since I had traveled their once before with my mother and grandmother. When I had gone here before (in middle school), I had loved the country, and so even though we were only going to be in Germany for five days, I was most excited for this part of the trip. Since my original trip here was so long ago, I didn’t remember a whole lot of detail about the…

I turned away from mom energetically taking pictures of everything and everyone to observe my not-so-new surroundings and to think about our reason for coming here. We had actually visited this…

  • War By Sebastian Junger Analysis

    When it comes to reading, I am one to judge a book by its cover and to be honest, War by Sebastian Junger didn’t catch my eye nor did the blurb captivate me. Ordinarily, it’s not a book that I would pick up and choose to read. All I was thinking was ‘great, a book on war, this is going to be a snooze and be like a research book’ and especially as it focuses on the war that happened in Afghanistan, I just assumed it would talk about the strategies taking place in the war, statistics and why it…

An epiphany is defined as “a showing forth, as when an action reveals a character with particular clarity” (1471). After reading Flannery O’Connor’s “Revelation”, Raymond Carver’s “Cathedral”, and William Faulkner’s “Barn Burning”, you easily see how the protagonist in each of those stories experience their own epiphany.
