4/20 That's weird!

I think this is the most disgusting thing I've ever read. I'm glad I wasn't there to witness this. Well in this article, a man was arrested for having "sex" with a hog. First of all, why is he having sex with animals? Is he that desperate? I mean I see that he has an address for his home or whatever and I'm pretty sure he has internet so you know he could have done something with that. Secondly, this is nasty and dumb. I don't know what he was thinking but he might have been crazy to do this kind of thing. In addition to that, he was arrested for 12 counts of unnatural intercourse. I don't think you should be arrested but at the same time it is "unnatural." At first he was put on bail for $600,000 dollars and then it went down to $60,000. That's a pretty ridiculous price to pay for having sex with hogs. He could've a lot of prostitutes and might have gotten away with it too.

4/6 Mainstream Music 30 years ago vs Today

All, Does mainstream music still hold the same cultural/political importancetoday as it did thirty years ago? Why or why not? later, JTM

I don't think music from the past is the same as today. As time go on everything changes whether its the type of instruments used, lyrically, or content. The only thing that probably is still the same is the catchiness in mainstream music. It's the key to selling records. Back then most of the music were about the current situations and now its about partying, smoking, money, cars, and women. There really isn't any content in music today. It's just a fad for a good month or two and then it dies down. On the other hand, mainstream music thirty years ago lasted for years. Sometimes we hear it today. For instance, mainstream rappers today rap about iPhone 4s and blu rays. It would look really stupid if you listen to it 2 years from now. Like I said, its just a fad.

4/13 Blogs Blogs Blogs

All, For today, pick out a blog or two from one of your classmates and discuss what you think about their writing style, logic, outlook on life, the whole shebang. later, JTM

The first blog I chose was Nicole's "All about Nicole" blog. I thought that her title were catchy and it made me want to read what's going on. As far as her writing style, she almost always start out with "So I." It does sound boring after a few blogs but at the same time its funny. It makes her blog sound more dramatic than it is.

The second blog I chose is Vu's blog. Vu seems to write on personal experience and then relating it back to the topic. That's what makes it interesting...
