The hip hop culture started back more than a few decades ago, in the late 1960’s. It was used to express a rapper’s life through poetic lyrics. It was most popular in African American and Latino communities. It was a way for them to get away from their life problems and just enjoy life. “Rap music is very influential and can have positive or negative effects, according to some experts.” (Killion) ““To say there is no influence and no effect is naïve,” said Murray Forman, professor of media studies at Northeastern University in Boston.” (Killion) ““It is a known fact that hip-hop has taken over, in a sense, the mainstream youth culture,” said Emmett Price, a professor at Northeastern University in Boston, who teaches hip-hop culture.

The Outsiders, by Se Hinton, was very different from the movie the Outsiders. The book gave a lot move description but I’m glad I saw the movie to get the actual picture in my head. I don’t think people should by separate by the way they look or how much money they have. All people have feelings. If the movie had more detail it would be more interesting.
Horrors and Heroes Entertainment, in any form, often has a deeper meaning than initially assumed. For instance, one might assume that an action movie would be a typical “guy movie.” Nobody would be surprised to see fights, cars, and explosions in an action movie, in fact, it would be expected. However, if the storyline of such a movie was about love, the viewer would be caught off guard. This twist is what makes any great movie entertaining; it keeps the viewer interested and wanting to see more. Two authors that discuss this method of giving deeper meanings to stories are Stephen King (in his essay “My Creature from the Black Lagoon) and Gloria Steinem (in her essay “Wonder Woman”).
My little brother who is 8 years younger than me was into playing every kind of gangster rap he could listen to and it drove me crazy. It is not to say that I did not like some of the artist like Tupac, Biggie Smalls, Dr Dre, Snoop Dog, Ice Tea, and Ice Cube just to name a few of the artist that’s music did not bother me the most even though sometimes that could be course with their words.

Susie Pummill Mr. Michael Mitchell 6123-82553-HIST 1302 8 Aug 2012 Rock and Roll: Musical Genre and American Lifestyle Rock and Roll isn’t just about a musical genre; it’s about a lifestyle. Rock Music shapes what is the American popular society’s viewpoint and belief system, not only in its inception beginning in the 1950s, but also now in the 21st century. Its musical message highlights different eras’, political times, and challenges of the moment. Cultural attitudes and opinions on every aspect of life including, racism, war, politics, and economy, are the focus of this sound. With every decade evolving this musical art with new unique styles, and many subcategories of the genre, Rock is the most popular kind of music, and
“We were just the spokesmen for a generation”, answered Paul McCartney when asked about his thoughts on the roles of rock music in the 1960’s (Szatmary 97), “I try to use my music to move these people to act”, said legendary guitarist Jimi Hendrix when asked about the motives of his music (Jimi). Both these men were very aware of the influence they held as Rock musicians, and acted upon that knowledge as is evident in their lyrics. There were many other musicians at the time that found themselves in the same position. The position where their music had more value to it than just entertainment, where it could actually bring about change. Rock music brought about the cultural revolutions of the sixties and seventies.
Some people may think that American pop culture lacks depth and wouldn’t be popular for long. They are also afraid that it may have a bad effect on the youth. We must admit that there are some pop cultural products that are superficial indeed and soon are forgotton. But we should not ignore that some are still popular from generation to generation. And they finally become classical.

Don’t Judge a Book by its Movie American society has become overwhelmed with the visual media, and often this media overshadows the classical paper books. The metaphorical phrase “don’t judge a book by its cover” is well known by most Americans; given our technological age, perhaps now we should think of it as “don’t judge a book by its movie.” When novels go through the process of being made into a motion picture the novel tends to be changed to better accommodate the actors or the audience. Sometimes this can be very effective; but occasionally writing movies originally from books can also be destructive to the author’s original ideas and purposes. The film Field of Dreams, produced by Universal Pictures, is based on the novel Shoeless Joe written by W.P. Kinsella.
