  • Akira Kurosawa - 914 words
    Akira Kurosawa Paper #1 Akira Kurosawa often incorporated social issues into his films. One of the most interesting of these issues was that of western culture's affect on the Japanese and whether it was better to evolve with the rest of the world or not. Many times in his films, Kurosawa ended up bashing the message over his audiences heads: This new culture may not be the best, but everything will be all right. Kurosawa used many different tools in getting his themes and metaphors across to his audience. By combining the right visuals, audials, and even dialogue, he completed, what he deemed to be, the perfect picture with the perfect statement on society (and he did it repeatedly). Sanshi ...

I'm actually moving to Baltimore. Charm City. The City That Reads. (At least this is what all the bus benches claim, but I'm sure many would argue.).

  • Rent Musical - 1,696 words
    Rent Musical There's a scene in the new musical "RENT" that may be the quintessential romantic moment of the '90s. Roger, a struggling rock musician, and Mimi, a junkie who's a dancer at an S/M club, are having a lovers' quarrel when their beepers go off and each takes out a bottle of pills. It's the signal for an "AZT break," and suddenly they realize that they're both HIV-positive. Clinch. Love duet. If you don't think this is romantic, consider that Jonathan Larson's sensational musical is inspired by Puccini's opera "La Boheme," in which the lovers Mimi and Rodolfo are tragically separated by her death from tuberculosis. Different age, different plague. Larson has updated Puccini's end-o ...

  • Tito Puente - 557 words
    Tito Puente By virtue of his warm, flamboyant stage manner, longevity, constant touring, and appearances in the mass media, Tito Puente is probably the most beloved symbol of Latin jazz. But more than that, Puente managed to keep his music remarkably fresh over the decades; as a timbales virtuoso, he combined mastery over every rhythmic nuance with old-fashioned showmanship - watching his eyes bug out when taking a dynamic solo was one of the great treats for Latin jazz fans. A trained musician, he was also a fine, lyrical vibraphonist, a gifted arranger, and played piano, congas, bongos and saxophone. His appeal continues to cut across all ages and ethnic groups, helped no doubt by Santana' ...
