    I have heard talk that a playlist will always feel polished and clean and intentional and that they will never have the gritty, in the moment feel that a cassette mix has. My response to that claim is that about 1/3 of the files contained on my personal playlists are either leaked or live recordings of unreleased material. In the same way you could go and buy a nice clean album on a cassette in the 90’s I can do the same online today, so why would I take time to include a common, and easily found file on a unique playlist?

    After some rewatching of Extra Credits' Spooky Playlist, I've thought of a idea. The main idea is merely a symbolic sound, reaching with the psychological trees they stated (Self, Uncanny, Other)... Everyone is familiar with certain machinery or instruments making music, having a liking of a genre or 2+, and overall other things in their life. The way I think this would be different from other Ambient works is that it's more than sound patterns and such that inflict emotional manipulation, but…

    It has been generally accepted that listening to music can improve mental health as it has the ability to divert us from stress by promoting positive state of mind (MacDonald & Wilson, 2014). In the society we currently live in, the self-awareness of most people is diminishing progressively since individuals are often overwhelmed with works and other activities, reducing the time spent for themselves. We often fail to realize that time for ourselves is essential since it would reboot our brain,…

    time to get on a plane and fly to California, the land of non-cold. I welcome you to join me. For the trip, I’ve built a playlist of nine grooving songs to put us in a California state of mind. You may be wondering why I have chosen nine songs to feature rather than ten despite the fact that there are hundreds of California-centric songs to choose from. The explanation is obvious: Everything about California is odd. Let’s get started! What better way is there to take off than with Flea and…

    Symbolic interactionism explains that our society revolves around symbols and without these symbols our social life would be nonexistent, “We would not know to whom we owe respect and obligations, or from whom we can expect privileges – two elements that lie at the essence of human relationships.” (Henslin Pg 23). Before mid-nineteenth century, the symbol of marriage was associated with obligation and duty due to the fact women could not independently support themselves. But as society…
