What kind of Media Consumer am I now?

After being in Mcom72 for an entire semester, all I can say is that not much has changed. Not much as changed since I last blogged about my media consumption. I still read the newspaper in the morning so I can keep in touch with the current events. Also, I would still go online to check email and shop at Amazon. I still have very little time to watch TV and listen to Hip Hop on a daily basis. For the most part, I am still the same media consumer as I once was.
Though most of my media consumption habits remain the same, there parts of it that were changed due to this class. One change it did was influence my ability to judge media more critically. Wheither it's critisizing a propaganda message, judging Howard Stern's comments, or analyzing a foregin TV station, this class has made me a more intellectual media consumer.
Another important aspect this class help me with was blogging. This class inspired me to blog, not only for self satiscfaction but also for others. Also, class helped me learn the importance of blogging. I learned that it is important for my future career as a Magazine Journalist.
Out all the events that happened in class, the blogging project, the group presentation, and many others, the one that made huge impact was watching the movie "A Face In The Crowd." That movie totally changed the way I view at media. Since the story revolved around a convict that suddenly became a national icon, it made me wonder about today's society. When I look at today's society, thugs and gangster are turned into heros while sluts and whores become role models, it totally scared me. My perception of the society is forever changed due that movie. Overall, it was an interesting class that proved to be somewhat of a success.


Special Thanks

Wheither it's radio, TV, or newspaper, you talked about all of them. Also, thank you for all the blogging tips you gave me and leaving comments on my blog. I would also like to thank you for allow my group to present even though we only had three people. And lastly, thanks for the pizza at the last day of class.

Your welcome, anytime. Glad to be on your shout outs! Make sure to keep in touch because I'm sure you'll be a hip hop critic and then you could hook me up with some hip hop artists! HAH Just kidding.

You're welcome, Truth. And thank you for teaching me about hip-hop. Incidentally, you left your CD in my computer, and you're not getting it back. :-)

So you want to be a magazine journalist, do you? This is just a wild guess -- you'd like to write for a music magazine? Maybe at The Source?

You have such a great name. I will definitely recognize and remember it when I see it on a magazine cover.

Keep on blogging. Your blog can be all hip-hop, all the time, now.

Sure, we still have traditional radio stations that do perfectly well with their traditional equipment,
but increasingly, more and more users have shifted to the
internet. The ads featured on the Internet radio website can inspire listeners to make a purchase through
the website itself. Apart from that, this special type of radio entertainment tool has got immense popularity because of its capability
to bring, news, discussions on recent events, arguments, comedies, sports
updates an d several other forms of programs to enthrall their listeners
with varied interest.

Not only will your child be in awe of all the bright colors of his favorite cereal transformed into a birthday cake but your guests will absolutely
love your creativity. If you prefer to use frozen strawberries, they work in this cake equally as well as the fresh.
Typically overlooked as practically nothing far more than just dessert belittled as a
symbol that provides nothing more than a location to stick the candles, the birthday cake has lengthy been relegated to
2nd tier status in the realm of get together arranging.
