References to his peers are systematic in this second album, both in lyrics and productions, which borrowed from Public Enemy('Remedy'), Schooly D ('Compton') and Dr. Dre (Da shit '). The album is filled with vengeful arrogance like in the single 'It's okay (One Blood)' The Game is not dead, long live The Game, "King of LA". He believed so strongly that he was one of the most important voices of contemporary rap, he ended up becoming. one piece will be a turning point to the album: 'Doctor's Advocate'. Game talks about his mentor Dr. Dre , while Busta Rhymes is trying somehow to tell him that it's key.
The other factor that takes away from this album is the two rock-rap songs, (She Watch Channel Zero!? & Party For Your Right to Fight). Maybe it’s a personal bias, because I never really like when rap and rock fuse, but I totally think they are in much better form when rapping over James Brown samples. Otherwise I can’t see any other flaws with this album. Chuck D performs like no other, and the Flavor Flav element is unique and essential to this album’s
Reading Umberto Eco’s “Role of the Reader” in college, Ricky states that, “The reader completes the text, that the text is never finished until it meets this voracious and engaged reader.” Although there are critics who believe there is a right and a wrong way to ready books, Moody says, “I believe there is not now and never will be an authority who can tell me how to interpret, how to read, how to find the pearl of literary meaning in all cases.” Part 2. Response I really enjoyed reading this article about how the author really has a passion and understanding for reading. This is probably the most in depth piece of writing I have read about the philosophy of reading. Ricky Moody uses very educated language and supports his claims with quotes from well-known people, one being Nietzsche. He ends his essay with a strong quote that uses personification, “I believe in the freedom to see literature, history, truth unfolding ahead of me like a book whose spine has just now been cracked.” With this quote said, it is very apparent that the author has a passion for reading.
He expressed his desire to write a new song everyday. He created several pieces prior to RENT including Superbia, a musical about a media controlled society, based on George Orwell's 1984, and tick, tick…BOOM!, a rock monologue which expressed Larson's frustration at his lack of achievement at the age of thirty, and struggling with the decision of whether to continue or not. Though these shows had small productions, they weren't enough to make a living off of. Larson's greatest work was RENT. As arrogant as it sounds, when asked what he did for a living Jonathan would simply reply (and strived to be), "I'm the future of musical theatre."
Because what Lupe Fiasco says on this microphone is going to come back to Wasalu Jaco. When the music cuts off, you have to go home and live with what you say." That quote right there is a testament to Lupe and how he is different he is the best rapper out there because he is real. He doesn’t try to be something he is not and he raps about things that matter, things that will change your life if you just listen. Most of us are walking through this world blind and need to open their eyes.
Certainly he was in better shape than Harold Nye, who, though full of flu and fever, kept reporting for duty. Among them, the four tired men had ‘checked out’ some seven hundred tips and rumors.” (149) After Dick and Perry are executed the agents experience a rather anticlimactic release. “Dewey had imagined that with the deaths of Smith and Hickock, he would experience a sense of climax, release, of a design justly completed. Instead, he discovered himself recalling an incident of almost a year ago...” (341) They expected the execution to be satisfying, but all it left was an empty feeling that left them sympathetic and sentimental. With this revelation Capote makes a point that is very hard to accept; working hard may lead to success, but is it really worth the troubles that one goes through before and after the task is finished?
I have never been so fascinated by someone from history in my whole life. When I was first told I had to dress up and act as someone else I thought it was going to be a major drag, but when I started reading Patton’s journal I was getting more and more excited about becoming him. He can change your views and emotions with only a few lines. I never even knew him but he has made a huge impact on my life. Through his speech to the troops of the Third Army, one can learn a lot about him.
But especially, Mystery Beer. You say that it’s $2.50 and they say “Is there a way the mystery beer could be a Sweet Josie?” and you shake your head solemnly and say “Sorry, there are rules in this world about mystery.” But you end up bringing them a Sweet Josie anyways, pulled from a giant cooler of beers the bartender wants to get rid of. And then you feel like some greek god blessing the masses with their
As a struggle to find his acceptance, he tries to get Daisy. Not only because he loves her, but if he had her, he would be the most acceptable person in both East and West Egg. It was said in the book that Daisy and Tom had attended one of Gatsby’s parties in Chapter 6. Nick tells Tom that Gatsby isn’t a bootlegger, but Tom had previously stated shortly before saying, “I didn’t hear it. I imagined it.
He was very unpopular, clinging close to Phineas, who was Gene’s only source of social interaction. When he was not with Phineas he would feel as if,” I would have lost face with Phineas, and that would have been unthinkable.”(Knowles Pg. 34) Gene did everything he could to stay in favor with Phineas, even by taking part in’ The Suicide Society’ (Knowles. 56-57), when he longed to be studying for examinations. Striving to be the best academically and to be so much like an adult, pressured Gene into thinking he had to be, ”serious sometime, about something.
