Artist of the week

February 1, 2010

This is gonna be about the biggest art things of 2009 kinda

General 09

This is a rapper is known as Skillz. He makes a rap every year wrappin up the latest year. he goes off and says everything that went on. In this he talks about Kanye losing and all the deaths of the year. This rap up was not as interesting as some of the others, but it still gives u a jist of the bigest things

Gaming of 09

CNN did a really good job of wrapping up the best games of 09. It has it separated into sections i.e.; Shooter, Action/Adventure, Platformer,  Music, Sports, Role playing, Strategy,  and Racing. The list was most likely based on sales and online play. This is the first time I have seen a list separated by genres. In first for all list was Uncharted 2: Among thieves, so it was no surprise in seeing it one the top of their action adventure list. Here is da full list

MULTI-ART? of 09

I chose theme for da multi art because not only did they make one of the most fun songs to dance to “Jerk” but they also put together a simple dance “Jerkin” and they made a small empire off of it. Now you will go to the club and you will hear their songs and you will see people “Jerkin” doing “Da Reject” and “Dippin” all dances by them. They are like the 09 Soulja boy

Art of the Week

January 24, 2010

This week will feature one artist and 2 other artist who uses/ used there art.

ETTA JAMES

Jamesetta Hawkins  (Etta James) was born January 25, 1938 in LA. The reason I chose Etta James because even today she is a wonderful artist that still preforms and is still widely heard. It is interesting to know that she was preforming at te age of 5 and she got her start singing in a church choir.  The beautiful melody  At last can be heard on the Walle movie trailer. and recently Beyonce played her in the 2008 hit “Cadillac Records”

Bio: Etta James Bio

Beyoncé

Beyoncé Giselle Knowles (Beyoncé)  September 4, 1981, in Houston. I chose the Beyoncé connection with Etta James because these are two famous confident women that I like to listen to. Beyoncé got her start in Destiny’s Child as a preteen. This group brought her tremendous success. once the “group” fully disbanded in 2001 she launched a solo career and contines to go on.

Kanye West

Kanye Omari West was born in Atlanta, Georgia, on June 8, 1977. I chose Kanye West as my final artist because I diodnt recognize how he was connected to Etta James until years after the song he featured her in came out.

This is a local artist. he is a student at UNL. He is an art major with an emphasis in Graphic design? His online nickname is MonsterMoe44. He has a deviant art page and a you tube page. I chose him as the more traditional artist of the week because I have seen his work in person and worked along side him. I know that he is a good up and coming artist and that he will go far.

Music


The Truth

Hey Everyone! We are a band by the name of The Truth. We are an up and coming band in the Metro Atlanta area. We love to make good music and are content on sharing it with the world. Our family consists of five very unique gentlemen from all over the East Coast.

A quote from there website above.

The band consist of Sean Northover – GUITARIST / VOCALIST, Carey Durham – VIOLINIST / VOCALS, Quantarius Leavell – BASSIST, Lloyd Phipps – LYRICIST, and Ashton Gibbs – DRUMMER.

One of those bands that you should listen to. They have a unique sound. I choose this band because I went to high school with Sean Northover. He got me started in my own music. He taught me how to play guitar and we played musicin da quad all the time. I had a good time growing with him for the few years that we spent in each others company.

Play

Avenue Q

Avenue Q is like sesame street meets the real world. If you have followed internet popular culture has heard the song “The Internet is for Porn” This is the play that created that show

The show is explicitly an homage to the PBS children’s television program Sesame Street. Both Marx and puppet designer/original cast member Rick Lyon have worked for Sesame Street, as have the other puppeteers in the original cast. Unlike Sesame Street, Avenue Q openly addresses adult topics such as racism, pornography, and homosexuality; in fact, because of its adult language and content and “full puppet nudity” (including puppet sex), the show specifically disclaims any connection to either Sesame Workshop (formerly known as the Children’s Television Workshop) or The Jim Henson Company. In an interview with Britain‘s The Times, addressing the question of potential conflicts with Henson, Marx claimed, “During early previews in the States we invited Jim Henson‘s widow and children and they could see that what we were doing was an homage and love letter to ‘Sesame Street.’”[5]

The characters who are not puppets relate to the puppets, rather than to the actors holding them. The puppets also speak directly to each other and never to the actors operating them. During the course of the show, a puppet character may be operated by more than one of the actor-operators, although the same actor creates the voice for a particular puppet even if he or she is not holding the puppet at the time. The puppeteers wear nondescript black/gray clothing while the puppets and the three human characters (Brian, Christmas Eve and Gary Coleman) are dressed in bright colors.

I chose this lpay because I have always wanted to see it in person and got the chance to see it last semester when it came to the Leid Center
