Pop or Peer Culture

Howdy !

You all probably have a favorite song and you just can’t stop singing it but maybe your friends do not appreciate it that much! I enjoy a lot of different types of music and I think we should all be able to decide what kind of music is good for us ! But have you seen that sometimes your friends are telling you the oh so popular hit music??? Maybe you should decide if you appreciate Rebecca black’s song Friday! Have you ever thought why you did not enjoy it ?? Maybe you should actually think about that ! Why didn’t you appreciate it was it her voice or her song ? Maybe you don’t appreciate the fact that she explained her whole life in a whole song ! I also find we just follow what everybody does but maybe you actually like that song! I would like to know why you do not appreciate Justin Bieber ? Do you actually like Lady Gaga or just think her Music beat is good! Maybe you thought if Much Music said that it is the most amazing song any artist ever created !

Now if you tell me I appreciate Lady Gaga’s work because you enjoy how she is not afraid of defying the odds! Maybe you do not appreciate  Justin Bieber because he only sings about love!

Go Figure!

Tim Burton

Hello,

I am sure you have all heard about the Tim Burton’s exposition in Toronto! I am so glad that I went to Toronto to see this exposition and see what  an artist envisions from a sketch pad to a feature film ! I saw most of his work at The TIFF Bell Lightbox and was glad that New York sent us the expo! I saw all his characters from his movies like ” The Nightmare Before Christmas” and many more… I also saw his letters to directors, producers, the cameraman and other people part of the production! They also exhibited  Tim Burton’s less known characters such as “Stainboy”  . They  also exhibited his maquettes . And the beginning of his career, his first sketches and advertisements. A bit of his personal life such as how he got fascinated to draw and when he started!  This exposition is really worth it so if you have the time, please go and see it in Toronto at the TIFF Bell Lightbox . And I can guarantee you will spend at least 3 hours  without fail!
