A critique of popularity in Mean Girls

In this all too well known teen flick, Mean Girls portray certain stereotypes of life. That one’s popularity‚Äč is fluid based on their latest high school date is demonstrated in this coming of age film. Regina George becomes less popular as Lindsay Logan infiltrates her mean girls club. This suggest that identities such as the…

The sociology of the OC

A lot can be said about this coming of age show from the last decade. A poor kid from the valley of California finds a hardworking couple eager to grow their nuclear family from three to four. A modelesque young woman who finds solice in this boy from Chino. Both lovebirds soon depend on one…

James Blunt Performs “Goodbye My Lover”

There is a particular line in this song that grabs me: “so I took what’s mine by eternal right– took your heart out into the night.” This line here suffices to elevate this song over Blunt’s more well-known “You’re Beautiful.” This song emanates more emotions of retributions. Whilst “You’re Beautiful” remains a more platonic minded…

Niall Horan – This Town

This official lyric video is awesome. Using simple sketches, this video utilizes a multi-modal approach. Niall Horan is a member of One Direction. Most of the original five members have gone on to voice new singles. This elevates the stardom of each members involved. I argue that Zayn Malik has created a better reputation for…

Adele Cover By Austin Criswell.

This guy is awesome. Austin’s rendition of Adele’ “Make You Feel My Love” is fantastic. Here is an individual with strong vocals and sound guitar fingers. I find it quite refreshing that a man covers this song. Really puts things into perspective and from these grounds, what more is important?

Miley Cyrus sings The Scientist by Coldplay

Like some of my earlier posts, some attention is paid regularly to cover videos other than the usual Kurt Hugo Schneider or similar famed YouTube musicians. This video will explore Miley Cyrus’ rather recent perform at a concert in New Orleans. I believe this clip is vital to explore some questions I have regarding the…

KHS & Sam Tsui – Hold It Against Me

This video cover really brings out the best in Sam Tsui. Actually did not discover this song until this summer while the video has been published for over two years. The original by Britney Spears was released around that time. Tsui’s cover adds flavor to the enhanced pop-iness of Spear’s single. Sam provides a more…

CIMORELLI “Really Don’t Care”

CIMORELLI is an interesting group of women. This all-female acapella display entertaining music videos along with their cover renditions of popular tunes. They began their YouTube career with more conservative videos of their singing around a piano. While these songs were well arranged, I believe the more recent productions are more entertaining. Take this song,…
