So the entire time we were discussing Montages in class, I had this little voice in the back of my head singing the song from “Team America,” which, surprisingly, is all about montages. I briefly considered posting a youtube video of the song but A: I couldn’t find it, and B: during my 10 minute search it occurred to me that “Team America” is probably offensive to at least a couple people and perhaps it wouldn’t be such a great idea to post said video. But if you’ve seen the movie, you know what I’m talking about.
I’m glad I signed up for this class (of course I may not be after a week or two, I’ll get back to you on that). I’m really interested in film and video games, and after talking to a couple people and hearing some of you talk it sounds like many of you are as well. While I no longer play World of Warcraft, I started playing Eve Online this year and I really enjoy it (when I have time of course.) My background is in English, I got my undergraduate degree from IU. I do have decent computer experience however and I’ve looked forward for several months now to getting this program underway.
I liked the expressive language discussion we had in class. Organized blog? Yeah right. Next topic! I always enjoy things, games, movies, web-pages, and etc. that aren’t afraid to use their medium to the fullest extent possible to really get out there and use what their platform has to offer. I mentioned to Jeff that I would send him the (if easily offended I would NOT open this link. Its safe to read, just content wise.) review of the Iphone by Maddox, which for those of you who are unfamiliar, is an offensive, self-proclaimed pirate who rants and raves about anything and everything.
