Blue, often abbreviated as RvB, is a comic science fiction video series created by Rooster Teeth Productions using the video game halo as its set and distributed through the Internet and on DVD. The story centers on two opposing teams of soldiers fighting a civil war in the middle of a desolate box canyon (the all-time fan favorite Blood Gulch), in a parody of first-person shooter (FPS) games, military life, and science fiction films. Initially intended to be a short series of six to eight episodes, the project quickly and unexpectedly achieved significant popularity following its Internet premiere on April 1, 2003. The fifth season of the original Blood Gulch Chronicles series ended with episode 100, released on June 28, 2007. The show has recently ended its tenth season with a larger cast and new design features that include CGI rendering and guest stars such as Elijah Wood (commonly known as Frodo) and is even sponsored by Bungee and Microsoft, the creators of the Halo

He grew up under the name of Vincent Furnier until he official changed his name to his stage name sometime in the late 1960s. His most favorite band of all time is The Yardbirds.

Named after Jack Foley who was a forerunner in post-production sound, it’s their job to make the sound effects from footsteps, horse trots, and in the case of Jurassic Park the sound of a baby dinosaur hatching form it’s egg. ‘Sound effects, to me, are not just to make the unbelievable believable, or to make sounds that make the movie realistic. They're really there for the sake of storytelling. And one of the key things I try to keep in mind when doing sound effects work is how can we use sound effects to help tell a story.

This piece was composed during the minimalist style outbreak, so it was only natural and exciting for composers to be experimenting with the newly-discovered ways of electronically making and editing music. Steve Reich greatly incorporates the electronic sound into his piece by using 7 electric guitars and 2 bass guitars. The use of all of these instruments creates a thick polyphonic texture, which was achieved by being “multi tracked”, which was overdubbing short phrases on top of each other. The piece is mainly made up of many short patterns/motifs, with the repetitiveness of the piece making it feel rather hypnotic. The texture remains fairly constant but with use of panning (bass guitars are panned with one to the left and one to the right.
Lexi Andreoni Mrs. Dotts English 9H Period 3 12/12/14 “A long long time ago in a galaxy far far away” George Lucas wrote, directed, and produced the trilogy Star Wars to create a modern American myth. A myth is a traditional story, especially one concerning the early history of a people or explaining some natural or social phenomenon, and typically involving supernatural beings or events. Lucas’s use of archetypal colors, costumes, settings, and symbols are an essential part of what makes the films so unique. An archetype is an image, descriptive detail, a plot pattern, or a character type that occurs prominently throughout religion, myth, literature, and folklore. Archetypes trigger unconscious memories because of their general meanings and provoke emotions.

Literary Trait Comparison of The Sound Of Thunder and Nethergrave Ray Bradbury’s, “The Sound of Thunder,” and Gloria Skurzynski’s story, “Nethergrave” are two good works of science fiction. They both develop their stories through the use of technology, which is the key element in any science fiction story. In Skurzynki’s, Nethergrave, a boy named Jeremy chooses a virtual world over the real world because in reality he feels clumsy, bullied, uncomfortable and alone (Skurzynki, 314-324). In Bradbury’s, The Sound of Thunder, we meet Eckels, a man who views himself as the ultimate hunter and decides to go on a time travel safari to shoot a Tyrannosaurs Rex but when faced with the reality of the beast, he becomes terrified and flees. As he scrambles away he goes off the Path and changes the course of history, and in turn, the future forever (Bradbury, 288-300).

This is just one of many similarities between the Hulk and the Creature. This isn’t accidental; in fact, when Stan Lee created the Hulk, he had the 1931 Boris Karloff version of the Creature (along with Mary Shelley’s novel and Robert Louis Stevenson’s novel The Strange Case of Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde) in mind. Lee said that he always felt that the Creature was “not really a bad guy. He was just misunderstood.” (Dalton 67) Although the 1931 film version of the Creature was significantly different from Shelley’s novel, the Incredible Hulk relates to both versions. This essay will focus mainly on the similarities and differences between the Hulk and Shelley’s Creature to show the monstrous effects parental issues can have on the psyche.
