But that's great man. You must be happy to be going to this school, aside from what Downer Lange has said about it.

Nice dude, i'll probably see you around next year. That's the university i'm heading for; hopefully it's the right choice for graphic design.

Woooooow...that is mortifying...

Actually, I can see a bit of literary analysis taking place here if you limit the topic to the psychological repercussions of being a Disney actress since birth, that probably inevitably led to her recent behavioral outbursts...

Still, that is absolutely mortifying...

For any of you who give a shite about my assignment, here's the prompt:
Spoiler:
Next, consider the bloggers’ varying arguments regarding Miley Cyrus in relation to this quote from Leslie Savan:

“As the mainstream plays the titillating notes of marginalization, we are collectively creating that ideal mass personality mentioned earlier: We can be part black (the part presumed to be cool and soulful, real and down, jazzy or hip-hop, choose your sound) and be part white (the privileged part, the part that has the luxury to easily reference other parts” (436).

Think about what Savan means here. You may also connect this to the notion of “covert prestige” that she brings up later in the article (pg. 447).

Then, write a response that connects at least two of the bloggers’ arguments to the Savan quote. You must also incorporate your own thoughts on the performances and cultural appropriation at large. You should not simply agree or disagree with the articles or the ideas brought up by your peers. Use your skills as critical readers and thinkers and evaluate the ideas presented and synthesize them to come up with your own argument. Feel free to include videos, links, pictures, other examples of cultural appropriation, and your own experiences. Remember to engage the points brought up by your colleagues, but also use what’s been presented as a springboard to your own connections. All posts are due by Wednesday, September 11, at 7:30 AM.
and here's my response (i probably didn't have to write so much but i was angry and ranting, you can tell i get progressively more annoyed)
Spoiler:
Savan's quote about being the "cool" and "jazzy" part of being black, while maintaining the white "privileged" part is a small problem that everyone goes through all the time, just on a larger scale: we want the best of both worlds. Whether it's having an easy job with little work while having a large salary, or on a more young adult stage, getting all the perks of being an adult, such as no curfew, while having the little responsibility of being a child. Miley is doing just this: she wants all the perks of being "black" (simply one culture of being black, the poor ratchet culture), which is being cool and popular and mainstream, while having all the perks of being the rich white person she has been her entire life, which is never needing to worry about food, or money, or the fear of living in a dangerous neighborhood.

Miley Cyrus' father is a famous country star, and so is very wealthy. She was born into this money, and being a Disney star since a young age, she has even more fame and wealth of her own. Even besides her fame and wealth, she has the perk of being white, which is obviously of great value in America and many other countries. In the words of stand up comedian Louis CK (NSFW language), "if you're white, and don't admit it, you're an asshole." Yet to stand out from her contemporaries, she needs something more; she needs an edge. And since "black" culture is very popular in today's age, she "just want[s] something that just feels black."

It's worth noting that Miley didn't even write the song (since many pop artists don't even write their song, song writers hired to make catchy hits for anyone to perform do), nor was it even intended for her to perform; It was intended for Rihanna to perform. Miley Cyrus is an entertainer, who's job is simply to entertain and make money and be popular. If being "black" and ratchet is what'll do the job, then that's what she'll do. When she was younger, being a Disney star and making kiddy pop songs got the job done, so that's what she stuck with. She was, however, limited on an audience, and as such limited in her popularity and "record sales". Seeing there's more potential for popularity, she began to assume this ratchet image, which would not only stir up fans of such music and image, but controversy, like the VMAs and this entire discussion. She holds no value to the black culture, but simply sees it as a means to further her own agenda, and use ratchetness as an "accessory" to be worn and discarded at will.

Miley is not being racist, since its "a thing of the past", she simply sees people and culture as a selling point to her career, and can use it and stop it anytime she pleases. To continue to talk about her and whatever controversy she stirs up only gives her more power and gives her less of a reason to value people and culture. While simply using cultures for their benefits and disregarding the consequences is wrong, businesses and pop culture will continue to use it so long as we give it publicity, and as the saying goes: any publicity is good publicity.
I don't expect any of you to care, SXR's shit is cooler and stuff, but like, my god why.

I haven't started any animation classes yet, so right now i'm just getting the pick of the litter.

It's obvious that most of them are impressed by this, because there's only like, two other animators in the class, and i'm positive neither of them know very much.

but i guess for this month, (which is how long this class goes on for) I'm some kind of bad ass apparently. If I were to show them sonic vs goku or sonic vs zatch, I'd be a god. XD

Show them the Hacky Sack collab. Not only will people call you a badass, but you'll be an amazing leader for being able to organise such an epic project
Just make sure you don't show them the actual thread

I'm currently directing something now actually, which i will reveal sometime in the future

Another small project I did for a class. there were two groups. One was for a topic and another was against the topic, the third group (the one I was in), was chosen to pick which side had the better argument. One of the teams named themselves Mooclear missiles. So I cleverly made a video choosing the winner:
