    opinion on a specific piece everyone knows of a certain song that will make them feel sad (Furukawa, 5). One text that is often considered by most listeners to be sad is the song “Whiskey Lullaby” by the artists Brad Paisley and Allison Krauss and was written by Bill Anderson and John Randall. This text can be found as an audio recording on iTunes and was first released on March 29, 2004 (Krauss and Paisley). This song is about a man and a women who were so miserable apart they both ended up taking their own lives because they felt they had nothing more to live for (Krauss and Paisley). The purpose of this song is to make an individual see that love is a great thing while you have it, but after its over can be haunting and cause distress (Krauss and Paisley). The major factor that cues one into the fact that this song is meant to be sad is that the song is in a minor key (Krauss and Paisley). Another significant factor is the slow tempo and quietness of the song which we often can relate to feeling miserable (Krauss and Paisley). The lyrics clearly tell a sad tale of a love lost (Krauss and Paisley). Some would even go as far as to say the viola played in the background of the song is intended to imitate human sounds of misery such as a wavering voice (Krauss and Paisley). Though this song is meant to give the feeling of sadness, there are songs that are meant to make individuals feel happy. One such piece is the official music video for the song “Outside My…

    This is a process many people use to evaluate themselves by how they compare with others (Adler and Proctor, 41). The main actor uses social comparison throughout the video.

    all of the memories, all the places I went, and the time that I spent here. Every little thing I do here had an impact on my life and I know every second is going to be a treasured memory.

I know I’m going to miss this but I’m ready for something bigger. “When I Get Where I’m Going,” by Brad Paisley is my next song.

    Black Rain Essay

    For me, Black Rain is just another prime example of why I consider Ridley Scott to be a mixed bag as a Director. Sure he’s definitely made some classics like Blade Runner, Alien, and Gladiator but other films that I’ve seen in Scott’s filmography (Robin Hood, Exodus, and G.I. Jane) seems like he gets so caught up into creating visual atmospheres (especially in this one) to the point of where he loses focus on maintaining a genuine plotting or narrative. Black Rain is an 80’s recycled tough cop…

    Fight Club Themes

    Fight Club (1999) doesn’t need much of an introduction, and the first two rules state that I can’t talk about. I guess I’ll have to make an exception just this once; I just hope Tyler will be able to forgive me. The movie itself performed moderately well in its opening weekend but was ultimately a box office failure, as it only brought in about $37 million in revenue. The main character who is played by Edward Norton, a nameless narrator, is unhappy and discouraged with his mediocre life. In…

    Just like countless celebrities before her, Jennifer Aniston has had a bumpy ride with the media but has lost control of her media portrayal long ago as she has been violently attacked by the media’s manipulation. The paradox of cultural context is limiting in that her career is formulated upon the inarguable reliance of media, truthful or not.
