Biography of this music band: 

One of the best bands the American underground kicked up in the Eighties, R.E.M. were a group of arty Athens, Georgia guys who invented college rock and went on to huge mainstream success. They brought a cagey mix of attitude and poetry to an idiosyncratic sound built around jangling guitars and hazy vocals of frontman Michael Stipe. Relentlessly touring clubs around the country for the first few years, R.E.M. consistently refined their sound: They could be dreamy, abrasive, circumspect, mischievous, and eggheaded. Their 1988 signing with Warner. Bros. netted them $10 million dollars for five records. Fortunately for the band and their fans, the same kind of creative gambits that marked their early days were still in place during the 1990s. 

"Every Day is Yours to Win," is a ballad that sounds like it's from Reveal, but a bizarre alternate universe version of Reveal that's actually enjoyable. Hell, the beatnik poetry meets Patti Smith that is "Blue" has no real equivalent in the band's catalog, and is quite enjoyable because of it.

For me this song its for motivate the people to be happy every day. the song say "Every day is yours to win" its for appreciate all the day and see what we've got. And like that, we'll be heroes, its for bring up everyone and tell us like that the journey will be better and more beautifull. 

The video its for show us how we do at home, because at home nobody can see us and its like our world. For me its for indentify us. Because we can compare our own with some people of the video. And for me its logic, the music say that we have to be what we are, if we want to dance ridiculously, no problem.

POST 8: Your Choice of a Film or Series dealing with the notion of 'Power'


This movie its about the racial segregation in the United States. Two football coach try to find a solution about this problem, they create a football team with black and white players. And with the help  of a two-week camp, the players learn to know us and live all together. When the camp ends, all of them realize that the situation remains the same. But with the championship they obtain to link a lot of American people, no matter if they are black, white, green or yellow.
We can see that in Remember the titans behaves a lot of notion of power. in the Hard power, we can discover the power of repression of opposition and dissidence because in a lot of moment, the movie show us the white people treat the black people like animals. So this moments include the power of violence. And in the movie we see the omnipresence of the police who its very important to escape the fight. In the soft power, we can see the political power, the rule of law and order, but logicly, the bad rules of the society, who accept and share to treat humans like this. Finally, The power of Love is the most present on this movie, the players are part of the war for peace of in their country with the football, they show us that who cares what and how we are, because the inside, this is what counts.

Post 7 - THE NOTION OF POWER (as exemplified in Brian De Palma's Redacted movie)

These 3 videos is diferent trailer about "Redacted" a Brian De Palma's movie. The movie its already a critic about the war in Irak. We can see that this film its very realistic and we can ask yourself that it is or not a documentary. We can see a very agressive scenes.

This film its also criticism the form and power of America, the system to define the war, the notion of the media's power because we can see on this documents images that not too much film show us because the media is so controlated.

Synopsis :
Director Brian De Palma turns his lens on the Iraq War with this "fictional documentary" about the experience of U.S. soldiers involved in the conflict. Based on a news item about the rape of an Iraqi schoolgirl by wayward grunts assigned to patrol a checkpoint, the film depicts a scenario not unlike the one De Palma covered in Casualties of War. Shot on high-definition video, Redacted also addresses the ever-evolving manner in which war is covered by the media by focusing on such journalistic innovations as blog coverage and web reporting.


This is one truly powerful (for lack of better a word) film. I am left dumbfounded and virtually speechless. Of course we all are aware of the horrific tragedy of war, but this film really showed me that what I had in mind is a "G" rated version. Everyone needs to see this film so we can all truly understand what our men and women are going though. It really brings you there with them and lets you see what they see on a daily basis. Not only does it focus on Americans, but it looks into what the Iraqi's are going through as well. This war is not a pretty picture, and though this film documents the disturbing realism of war, please watch it. It's films like this that make a difference and spark change.

Post 4: MADtv iRack Video

This video can relate to several notions. It can go in the notion forms of power because it criticises the war in Irak. It also relates to the notion of progress because we can see Steve Jobs and Apple. So this is also myhts and heroes because Steve Jobs is some kind of modern hero. Also there is the notion of spaces and exchanges because it´s about relations inbetween countries (U.SA.-Irak).

-Two people are stuck on a escalator in a place that seems literally empty. The man looks annoyed. He might be an office warker walking to this job. The woman claims  that she's already late, so for her this is the last straw (that's breaks the camel's back). At one point, she's about to cry and asks for a phone, screams for help. In short, the two of them look helpless, clueless, powerless even hopeless.

We can relate this situation to a fairly common one in real life: getting struck in/on an elevator. The difference is, however, that in this situation, people have a right to feel panicky/ freak over/ panic. Where as on an escalator, there is no reason at all to panic/be scared. The video points out increasing reliance of human beings on technology. If it goes missing, it is as if a crutch had been taken away, so these two people cannot ever climb/walk up the escalator, which would be the normal thing to do. We could also think that technological progress makes humans lazy or at least less to take initiatives/ think by themselves inclined to make efforts.
