This reading I felt was different from others we have read for this class. It was more of a textual reading like more informational then easier reads we have done before. But as much as I didn't enjoy it compared to past readings I think it was good.
Although it wasn't as entertaining as readings like "Cinderella ate my daughter" it still had some examples that were relevant and some people could relate to. It brought up music from like heavy metal to even rap. The Marshall Mathers albumn that was mentioned I could relate to because I have heard it plenty of times. I think although music doesn't show pictures like television unless you know someone sees the video it still has a huge impact on society. I myself catch me singing things sometimes and after like fifth time singing it I finally realize what I am saying.
As useful as media can be it can also be bad in a sense. One has to know how to keep an eye out and how to really read certain message put out in the world. Ideology can be heavily impacted on today's media.
