    I am also a fan of The Twilight series, my old roommate convinced me to watch the first movie and after that I read the books within two weeks as well! It's crazy how something catches you so quickly, guess...
  • Commented on FINAL DQS FOR THE SEMESTER GO HERE.
    Although Radways piece was written in the 80's and there have been a lot of improvements and advancements, there are still ways to escape reality today, in fact there are a lot more ways than just romance novels. Do you...
  • Commented on Blog Response: Catch up/final paper ideas
    I'm writing about a similar topic, mine is more about consumerism in this country but I do relate it to holiday shopping and the ridiculous amount of ads that are out there that make people think they NEED stuff they...

  • Commented on Post DQs for Tuesday here!
    I did not know that just because someone played video games did not mean they were a gamer, I just assumed anyone who played video games was a gamer. The article made me wonder, is being identified as a gamer...
  • Commented on Blog prompt
    I always make an outline before I write my essays, usually I write down ideas for the attention getter, the preview of my essay, and my thesis for the first paragraph. Then I pick the three main points that I...

  • Commented on War Made Easy and the Propaganda Model
    I like the image you posted a link to- very powerful artwork. It is true, we need to be careful about "blind patriotism" and I think you make a strong argument that we should be mindful of not accepting and...
  • Posted War Made Easy and Propaganda Model Response to Media Literacy Section 001 Fall 2011
    After watching War Made Easy, the point that resonated with me the most was the control that the government and the media had on the information that was shared and given to the public about the war. The film talked...
  • Commented on Post DQs for Thursday here!
    In response to the Old Growth Media and Future of News by Steven Berlin Johnson reading, the first thing that came to mind was INFORMATION OVERLOAD. I think the way he describes the future of news is very accurate. Yes,...
  • Commented on Sports Blog
    Men's soccer had the same view at my high school, the "cool" team was hockey, then football, basketball, and baseball. People always called the men's soccer team field fairies but I never understood that because I played soccer, and the...
  • Commented on Post DQs for Tuesday here!
    I thought that McKay and Johnson's article "Pornographic Eroticism and Sexual Grotesquerie" was a little confusing in what they were arguing. It is titled that there is pornographic eroticism but to me, it seemed like they were arguing that the...
  • Commented on Prius Ad
    That's interesting that they made the assumptions that men are outdoorsy and like being in the woods so they tried to appeal to these "manly" men (again, manly based on the idea that men should be tough and masculine) My...
  • Posted Dr. Pepper ad "It's Not For Women" to Media Literacy Section 001 Fall 2011
    Just saw this commercial on TV... some sports channel (the idea that Dr. Pepper 10 is just for men and also playing it on a sports channel makes the assumption that only men watch sports? i dont know.. ) I...
  • Posted Killing Us Softly Response Blog Prompt to Media Literacy Section 001 Fall 2011
    After watching the Killing Us Softly, I agreed right away with Kilbourne that representations in advertising have led us to public health problems. The way that the media portrays women is unachievable. I was shocked to find out that women...
  • Commented on Post Thursday DQs here!
    In the first article on the blog, Is Porn Really Transforming Our Sex Lives?, Laura writes "Women want intimacy with men, men want fantasy sex with porn stars, and the porn stars presumably just want a paycheck. No one's getting...
  • Commented on Blog Prompt- Remy's Lecture
    I think this would have been great to discuss with Remy as well. I think that family is a huge factor in people's identity and how they express themselves, especially when your family doesn't accept who you are because it...
  • Posted Response to Remy's lecture to Media Literacy Section 001 Fall 2011
    I really enjoyed Remy's lecture and found it very helpful to have someone come in and talk to us about the topics from the reading to better understand all of the information. It was interesting to see from Remy's lecture...

    What does the disappearing narrative (bottom of p.81) that is seen in The Crying Game signify in terms of the transgender gaze? Does this relate to the idea of gender metamorphosis that is seen in transgender film?...

    I think your topic is very interesting, I also had a subscription to YM. I also make outlines for my papers which is a great help. Although it seemed like researching a website is difficult, I think having different types...
  • Posted Blog post #5 to Media Literacy Section 001 Fall 2011
    I wrote my first paper on the reality TV show The Bachelorette and how the producers encode and the audience decodes the show. I also wrote about ideologies about the idea of love and marriage. I argued that The Bachelorette...
  • Commented on Blog post, response to DQ
    wow! I had no idea that was original or intended meaning of the word. it is interesting to see how the image or representation of "thug" has changed. Tupac was a very inspirational artist to many people, I wonder if...
  • Commented on POST TUESDAY DQS HERE!
    Also, I agree with the quote from Gilberg on the second page where she says, "The danger is that pop culture defines our social norms." do you think that this video led to an increase of abuse in relationships or...
  • Commented on Blog answer
    I agree with you Spencer about everyone experiencing this feeling at some point or another. especially in today's society, there is so much going on to compare each other to, so many examples and representations in the media to be...
  • Commented on POST TUESDAY DQS HERE!
    Several questions came to mind after reading Mirandas article about "Love the way you Lie". Do you think the song would have been as popular if Rihanna didn't sing the song? and instead chose to advocate against abuse in relationships?...
  • Posted Blog post, response to DQ to Media Literacy Section 001 Fall 2011
    In response to moran243 discussion question, "Does the media sexualize a pimp or a thug, to please the audience's preference or set the audiences preference? Is the media giving us what we want or telling us what we want by...
  • Commented on Post DQs for Thursday here!
    In response to the Alicia Keys video blog post, the video shows what interracial relationships were like in past decades, do you think much has changed from the 50's? Another key point from the video is in the middle of...
  • Commented on Superwoman to supermom what's realistic?
    I also watch Parenthood I agree with your argument that Julia is a good example of reversing the roles that we and society view as "normal". There are a few episodes where Julia is very stressed and sad that she...
  • Posted TOUGH GUISE to Media Literacy Section 001 Fall 2011
    What is "tough guise"? The tough guise is a mask that men wear or a front that men put up through violence to come across as masculine and tough. Men and boys are constantly being told, whether it is through...
  • Commented on Feminism Blog Prompt Response
    I agree with both Danny and Lisa in relating to the Gaga video. It's ironic that she is arguing for feminist rights and that women should be and are very powerful, and confident with themselves. I also agree that the...
