    This viewpoint had never been mentioned to me before. I never knew that not believing in a higher power was an option before. Asking questions about religion was not really tolerated in my experience, so I never considered not believing. After my initial shock, I read the arguments for atheism. I spent a lot of time thinking about religion and science and what is “real”. I was also introduced to two of my biggest heroes at this time, Nikki Sixx and Corey Taylor. Both of whom happen to be atheist. It was as though a veil had been lifted. I saw the world more clearly. The people around me claiming to be devoted followers of God tended to be the most hateful and toxic people that I knew. Nikki Sixx and Corey Taylor showed me that one did not have to be religious to be a good person, and hypocritical Christians were everywhere. I began to see how faulty religious claims could be. The world, to me, made more sense without a God than it ever did when I believed. To be clear, this was a very difficult period in my life. This was when I first started high school, which is as close as I’ll get to hell in a mortal life. This is not the perspective of an angst ridden teenaged. There was at least one suicide per year among the student population at the time I was attending. Clearly, I was not the only miserable…

    For example, when Price’s character sings The Beautiful Ones the camera begins to zoom in on Apollonia. This is done to show that the song is a confession of his feelings for Apollonia and so that the audience can see her reaction as he sings. Another example, is when ‘the kid’ sings Darling Nikki. Close up shots are used to capture the reactions of Apollonia, the boss, Morris, and a couple of women from the audience. This is done to display everyone’s disapproval and dislike of the song. Morris…

    The poem “Woman”, written by Nikki Giovanni, uses several metaphors to describe the journey of a woman and what she feels the man should do but will not do. She describes in many different ways how she wants support from the man, but he is unwilling to give it. In the first stanza, she starts the poem with the woman being a simple, insignificant thing. “She wanted to be a blade of grass amid the fields” (lines 1-2). Grass grows under your feet. Blades of grass are plentiful and ordinary. She…

    Nikki Giovanni not like any other writer is a strong, independent, African American woman.

    See, Motley Crüe is a band of four rockin' maniacs (bows slightly). I, Tommy Lee, for those who came in late, am the drummer. My band mates are the vocalist Vince Neil, guitarist Mick Mars, and bassist Nikki Sixx. We've had five albums so far, and just so none of you fans get worried, there will be many, many more. Our albums so far are pretty rad if you ask me (shrugs and pauses to check for laughter). The first one, Too Fast For Love released about 8 years ago, me and the boys can't…

    Throughout the years music of many different kinds have been born. Their is pop, country, rap, and rock. Rock music was born and very popular in the 80’s. And through the years it has grown. One thing about rock music is that they are usually written by the band and not with help, and they tell a story about the bands life. Todays pop and rap are more so up beat and good songs, but they don’t always have a meaning behind them. Rock music is away to let go and tell people about yourself. And as…
