    West Hollywood Carnaval 1. Description Monday October 31, 2016, Halloween night, my friend and I decided to attend West Hollywood Carnaval. Before getting there, we had a hard time looking for parking for we didn’t know it’s going to be that popular. It took us about two hours to find parking which is also very far from the event. We walked for 30 minutes just to get to the location. It’s both our first time. The event takes place in the streets of Santa Monica Boulevard between N Doheny Drive and La Cienega Boulevard. The place is packed full of large crowd that are dress in different costumes. Some wear revealing attires like Calvin Clein models or not wearing anything at all but tape on their nipples, while some people wore out of the box costumes like movie characters. They are serious about their costumes, it’s very competitive. There are food trucks around the corner of each intersection selling burgers, tacos and hot dogs that was filled with long lines of people. Since demand is high, food is a bit pricey. There are also illegal hotdog vendors for people who don’t want to wait in long lines or pay inflated prices, we know because whenever the police come around they hide. There are stages with live entertainment where…

    Joe Gillis: A Character Study Joe Gillis is one of the most interesting characters to ever grace the silver screen, and a character that is still studied to this day. While Gloria Swanson’s historic performance of Norma Desmond garners more attention and praise, I would make the argument that William Holden’s portrayal of Joe Gillis is just as intriguing. Billy Wilder created a character that I have never been so unsure of, he is one of the great examples of the anti-hero. He’s not a great guy,…

    I could hear the water in the lake behind moving ever so slowly, but just enough for me to know that I wanted to stay forever. I felt like I was rich and had the biggest and most beautiful house on the entire planet. I remember dancing around with Hippo in the living room singing, “I am rich, la la la!

    Landing on the hard consonants and using them at the beginning of the word to propel the pitch forward worked perfectly. However, where there were any uncertain parts, prime example being the "Fa la la" section of “Fire”, our intonation, as well as all the other technical aspects declined rapidly in quality. As far as rhythmic accuracy goes, “Fire” may have lacked that quite a bit in the “Fa la la” section of the song, as well as small hiccups in some of the alleluia phrases of the Latin piece…

    My first stop on the hunt for government offices and or buildings in Snyder is the Scurry County Courthouse.

The buildings address is 1806 25th street. Lainey, Ellis and I met at the building so we could take pictures for each other around 5:42 p.m. and there was no one in the parking lot except our own cars, but there was a bit of…

    A major problem in most cities is that water is viewed as free or cheap and therefore, commonly misused. According to Charles Fishman, “But the real obsession in Vegas is water- displaying it, unfurling it, playing with it, flaunting it” (53). In Las Vegas water is manipulated by hotels and corporations to make their business more attractive to visitors. Simply by walking down the Las Vegas strip people can view ridiculous amounts of water being employed by the casinos. Las Vegas is one of the…
