    events such as First Friday, while people dine. The band consisted of four male instrumentalists, a couple who also vocalized and a female singer appeared for a few of the songs. All of the participants on stage were assumingly in their 50s. The instruments played throughout the set included a drum set, a keyboard, an electric guitar and bass.

  • Examples Of Propaganda In Disney Movies

    Propaganda. When we hear the word propaganda, we think of the Holocaust, of Nazi Germany, of Hitler. We think of a dark, dangerous time, a time when everyone was suspected to be the enemy, a time when no one could be trusted. What we don't think about, is the constant propaganda that we are exposed to today. We expect it to be plainly stated. To be so obvious, that when we see it, a bright lightbulb lights up with a glaring neon red sign saying “WARNING: PROPAGANDA. PROCEED WITH CAUTION.” Yet,…
