REMEMBER: Next week we meet at the library, so don’t go to our usual classroom; meet in front of the library on the fourth floor.
1. Pick a song whose lyrics speak to you in some way—this can be the same as the one you may have already written about or a different one. Listen to the song. As you do, make a list of all the different broader “social” or psychic issues that the lyrics and/or sounds evoke (e.g., incarceration, education in America, drug addiction, love, cheating, etc.). Post your list here.
2. What Was Seen & What Was Said. Find a video you like (could be one you already wrote about–or not) and watch it at least twice. The first time you watch, make a list of all the visuals you notice. The second time you watch, transcribe all of the words exactly as they are spoken for 1-2 important or interesting minutes (see Serpell’s “What Was Said” for a sense of what this might look like). When done, re-watch/re-listen and double-check your work. Post both parts here.
3. Read through texts #7-9a in the Readings folder, all about different ways of thinking about what internet addiction *might* be.
See you at the library.
