Hunky Dory, The Cat’s Pajamas, Peachy Keen

I thought these articles were really cool! It was a really good read after just doing our own summing projects with images from movies and reading about Ferguson’s work. I found it very cool that that digital humanities can be about anything, you can work with any subject – even Vogue covers – and get cool results that can either have a purpose, or just on its own be something for people to look at and enjoy. I thought it…

Digital Surrealism: Visualizing My Life

Digital Surrealism: Visualizing My Life

While reading Kevin Ferguson’s methods and analysis of the work he has done with different films, I kept having a recurring thought of “what if I used this same method to analyze my life in some way?” Maybe my life planning and decision-making class has me in too much of a “reflect on my life” mood…or I could be onto something. At first, I thought about putting all of my home movies and videos of me throughout my life through…

Imagery of Rape within Pygmalion’s Bride

Pygmalion’s Bride. While I was reading the second half of this book, I decided that before I read the poem, I would look up the story of whoever the poem was talking about or the story of the man who was being referenced in the poem. I found that Pygmalion is a play written by George Bernard Shaw based on the mythological figure of the same name. A quick version of the story is: Pygmalion fell in love with one…

What in the heck?

What in the heck?

Poetry is already confusing enough, but this book (even just the first half that we’ve read so far) is on a whole different level! While I was reading, I had no idea what was going on. Some of them I somewhat understood, but for most of them I was clueless. ALSO! THEY WERE ALL SO SEXUAL!! And what was with the “Lizzie, Six” poem, was that about a sex offender? **me while reading this book** As a whole so far,…

Read Novels and Chill?

Read Novels and Chill?

While I was reading this article, the thought of the article regarding Netflix genres kept popping into my thoughts. It intrigued me to think of what could possibly happen if someone put different novel genres in the same program and it spit out oddly detailed recommendations for what people should read based on what they have read previously…maybe I should invent a program like that? Maybe with e-books? Maybe more people would read books rather than sit behind a screen…

The Complexities of Love

The Complexities of Love

Even just putting the word love into google doesn’t really tell you what it is and what it feels like. The only way you can really know is by feeling it for yourself, and learning what love means to you. Does it mean you care for them deeply? Does it mean you would do anything and everything for them? Does it mean you can’t live without them? To me, there is no exact definition. Love is impossible to fully grasp…

Why My Dating Life is a Mess

Why My Dating Life is a Mess

You’re probably thinking, “oh, it can’t be that bad!” Well…between the dates of a deer running into the side of our car, being asked to watch the stars with someone who ends up telling you they’re ‘night-blind’ and can’t even see the stars, and going to the hot springs and ending up in a pool with 3 skinny dipping gay men that met on their missions…I’d say it’s bad. This “Sexy” short story made me think, not really about affairs…
