For Media Share 10, I decided that the piece of media that I felt closely resembled the points detailed in Kelefa Senneh’s “Gettin Paid” is the results of the 2020 Presidential Election results:
Although Senneh’s article wasn’t really a topic of politics, I found that the similarity in the article and the elections is change. Just as the Executive branch of the United States’ leadership is shifted, so has the approach of industry behemoths like Jay-Z. From being a rapper to a businessman to a man who adheres to trends, the accounts of Jay-Z shifting his approaches to rap and business resemble the shiftings brought about by Presidential elections, whether they be political shifts, primary ideologies within a country, social shifts, or whatever shift may occur.
I chose this article for my media share because it discusses the evolution of hip hop and how people looked at this genre back in the day. When hip hop first came about, many people in the United States hated it and used to talk down on this genre of music. I find this ironic because in this day and age hip hop is one of the most popular genres and it’s looked up too. In the text, the author mentions some artists that are known in hip hop, one being jay z and the Infamous 2pac and biggie smalls. There all really famous rappers that paved the way to this genre. In the article it states “Hip Hop culture and rap (a method of vocal delivery popularised through hip hop music) have for more than four decades been bundled with a range of negative connotations, leading many like Bratton to equate them only with profanity, misogyny, violence and crime. Prosecutors in the US have labelled rap lyrics a criminal threat, and numerous studies have been undertaken on the harmful influence of hip hop on kids.” This quote demonstrates what people thought of hip hop when it first began. Hip hop came a long way, too being the most hated to the most loved/popular.
I feel like this picture connects to “The Full Retard” because the author is trying to figure out what Meline is trying to say in the song. In the text, it states “its overall effect a parade of sonic likenesses of the coming world’s broken infrastructure.” The author is saying the lyrics are all broken and it isn’t put together. Also, the author thinks there is no point in trying to figure out Meline’s imagination.
In the passage “art at arms length” by Jerry Saltz, he discusses the significance of a selfie on the planet today. He classifies the significance of a selfie in various parts which incorporates Defining another structure, what they state, what they don’t state, and craftsmanship history, and workmanship future. I had read the about article selfie he discuss some positive reason, if we’re looking for a non practical reason for the selfie, it’s probably this: THEY’RE SO MUCH FUN! Like if you’re out at a bar with bunch of friends and want to remember the moment, or you’re at a family party and simply love how adorable you and all your cousins look, the selfie has you covered. https://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/medium/public/field/image/2017/04/giphy-9.gif?itok=fToecOYH
I pick this picture, the picture is underneath the MS that identifies with the thoughts of a web dependence in the writings “the Viral Virus” by Lauren Duca, “Dependent on Addiction” by Christopher path, “Issues for DSM-5: Internet Addiction” by jerald G. Square and “The development of web habit” by Griffiths et al. These writings show how web has pessimistic effect on individuals. As should be obvious an individual in the photograph who is addictive to web and has no enthusiasm for his work. He is simply thinking about the games and social applications instead of focusing on his work. Individuals as him don’t comprehend the negative impacts of the web that could have on them. My opinion is continually utilizing technology simply squandering our time,it’s smarter to learn new things.
In the text “Art at Arm’s Length”, Jerry Salz’ talks about how selfie has taken over people’s life. It states “What I love about selfies is that we then do a second thing after making them: We make them public.” People these days basically takes selfies to post it on social media. And some people will do anything to get the perfect one, sunkissed, nice view, with pets, with friends and family, and etc. What people don’t understand is what you see is not always true. In the article, it states “Almost half admitted editing them before posting and 27% say their photos online make their life look more exciting”, also “I’m not what I look like on social media.” It’s hard to find selfies with a natural face. Most of them are edited and photoshopped. This is the genre of selfies.
