Annie Hall

In this film we see a glimpse of Woody Allen’s morals and personal conflict with life. In Annie Hall Allen talks to the audience as if they are sitting in on a therapy session. In this film Woody Allen plays Alvy Singer, Alvy is a psychotherapy patient who is trying to figure out his romantic relationships in life and have a better understanding of human behaviors, and the way humans think (Lee 35). In the opening of the film Allen quotes, “I would never want to belong to any club that would have me as a member.” He says this pertaining to his relationship with women. In this film the audience witnesses the romantic relationship that evolves between Annie and Alvy. The audience also watches the falling out of this relationship. Woody Allen exposes a whole different side of himself in this film. The question that Allen leaves the audience with is, why name the film Annie Hall, “ What brought about Allen’s decision to shift our attention from his own character and make Annie the film’s central figure (Lee 36)?”This is an example of how Allen leaves us questioning and gives us only a little insight to a deeper meaning in his films and morals of life. This film is the first time we witness Woody Allen as person who is going through relatable real life situations, and as a audience we have a chance to observe how Allen goes about dealing with obstacles that he my encounter in his life time. This film introduces “many of the most important philosophical themes that would concern Allen”(Lee35). This quote opens up the context of the film and gives insight to the different perspectives Woody Allen is going to introduce to us.

Disney Hall

...Why can't we have those curves and arches that express feeling in design? What is wrong with them? Why has everything got to be vertical, straight, unbending, only at right angles - and functional?” ¾Charles, Prince of Wales. (Quotes) Three years ago I was studying high school in Los Angeles, and during vacation I travelled around and explored the city. I still remember out of all the locations that I have toured, Walt Disney Concert Hall probably is the one that stands out most in my memory. Although I didn’t visit the interior of the Concert Hall, the exterior appearance left a profound impact on me influencing my view regarding the society and art. I feel astounded by how Gehry’s work can beautifully allow art and architecture to collide into a piece of functional aesthetic structure. Among all the nearby and typical buildings in the city of Los Angeles, Walt Disney Concert Hall, designed by Frank O. Gehry, becomes a prominent infrastructure and representative of the area. It reveals an eye-catching comparison as it unconventional, curvaceous, irregular and stirring style contrasts with the surrounding proportional, balance, symmetrical and straight buildings. Through the critical examining of its construction styles, design, social manifestation, and public response which I am going to evaluate in this essay, I want to expose an understanding of how architecture reflects on its symbolic function and societal progression. “I know I draw without taking my pen off the...

Annie Proulx Essay

...Academic essay on Annie Proulx's "Job Story" Choices are something we all make. Not necessarily important choices, but there will always be a time to make them. It's not always good choices, but they have to be made. There will always be consequences, whether it's bad or good. Throughout the story, Leeland Lee has to make a lot of choices. Where to live, where to work and when to work. All the different choices he made, put him in the position he is now. Leeland Lee is an awkward-looking young boy. His face is heavily boned, which he has gotten from his mom, his neck is quite thick and he has red-gold hair. His eyes are as pouchy as a middle-aged alcoholic. His nose is broad and lays close to his face. Lori Bovee is Leeland Lee's wife. She has an undistinguished oval face, and hair of medium length. Leeland Lee is the protagonist of the story, because he is the main character. I would say Leeland is a flat and static character as he is an endless optimist. He doesn't give up when it comes to finding a new job, and despite his wife dying he still gets a job at Unique Eats. The reason he is a static character is because he doesn't change at all. After getting several different jobs he doesn't change anything, after his mom and wife dies he doesn't change one single thing except the fact he isn't listening to the radio anymore, but since that have been an important factor of the story all along, it can also show a lot about how he has changed. The story starts......

Annie Mac

...Friday, the weekend officially starts on Radio 1 with Annie Mac. No pre party would be complete without an Annie Mac set blaring through the speakers and whatever problems you faced during the week, now seem irrelevant after that first drink. Now imagine seeing Annie and special guests work their magic in a sellout party of 2700 people in the o2 academy Leeds. I was lucky enough to attend this musical soiree on Friday and had the chance to see some of this year’s hottest talent with my own eyes. True to form, my friends and I managed to push our way to the front – yes, we are those annoying people who barge past you at gigs – just in time for the party to begin. First to grace the stage were Disclosure, who got the crowd going with chart toppers “Control” and “Latch”; Annie Mac even tweeted at this point saying “Arrived in Leeds O2 to hear 2,700 people sing ‘Latch’ at the top of their voices. Go Disclosure!..” so as you can imagine, it was an intense start to the night! Arguably one of the most anticipated songs of the night was Feel The Love – Rudimental. The combination of the strobe lights, the saxophonist and the amazing voice of John Newman was enough to send shivers down your spine and led to 2700 people screaming the lyrics at the top of their lungs – I’m still singing it in my head 3 days later! Shortly after Rudimental had made my hairs stand on end, the moment we’d been waiting for had finally arrived – Annie Mac. She stood behind the somewhat makeshift DJ......

Dining Hall

...Barrett dining hall through diverse selection of food, communal tables and casual dress creates an inclusive dining experience for students. When you walk into the dining hall for your first time as a college student, it seems a bit like a zoo. With people all over the place, running to grab the last piece of pizza; we all have a different view on our dining hall. When I walk in the first thing I see are patrons eating. Some people are by themselves eating alone and on their cell phones, or some people by themselves are studying, waiting for the next class to start. Most people are in groups conversing with new people, trying to meet as many people as possible. All over the world, food is used to bring people together. Working in the restaurant industry for two years I’ve learned that the atmosphere of which you are eating in can enrich or worsen your experience. The open floor plan of the dining hall creates easy access from all directions of Barrett, making it easy for students to get to the dining hall no matter where they are coming from. The open seating plan also makes is less awkward to sit by yourself when you’re grabbing a quick bowl of cereal before your 9am class. The area is spacious, and can hold a lot of students in different sections. The modern design is accentuated with this open floor plan. Barrett dining hall is definitely the nicest dining hall on campus with its updated features all over and the spacious, clean, modern look. I asked student Jordan Manny......

Influence of Dance Hall Music

...Essay by Simone, (Student) 2012/2013 Topic: The lyrical content of dance hall music is degrading of women and is morally obnoxious. Thus this genre of music should be banned from air waves. “Me have a trailer load a gal down a wharf fi come off”. This is a quote from a very popular song by Shabba Ranks about women. Degrading of women in song such of this one is something mostly used in dancehall, but when does it become a “cool” thing to do? This genre of music speaks volume to the influence it wields and its verbal attack on women. It is something that a lot of people are aware of, but yet it is continually played on the radio and found itself on top music charts. It is a shame that this type of music gets the attention it does, when all it is doing is clogging the airwaves with nothing but rubbish. Thus this genre of music should be banned from airwaves as it glorifies sexual aggression, promotes sexual deviant behaviours among women and referring to them as if they are sexual object. Dance hall music is the mother of vulgarity. Nowadays dance hall artiste are belching out any and every thing once it means making money with little or no regard for the people of the country, especially women. This explicit lyrical content goes undisturbed as it glorifies sexual aggression towards women. It is tremendously noticeable in the colourful songs and arrogant attitude of deejays. An example of this can be seeing in the lyrics of Beenie Man, “Gimme di gal dem......

Hall V Hilbun

...Hall v. Hibun In 1985, a case was brought forward against Dr. Hilbun, a general surgeon who performed surgery on Terry Hall. She was complaining about abdominal pain. He consulted and operated on her for a small bowel obstruction, which she consented to. After he observed her in the recovery room, he left for the night. Throughout the night, she started having more and more pain and her vital signs were abnormal, but Dr. Hilbun was never notified of such pain. He was notified about another patient of his and failed to check up on Mrs. Hall and she later died of respiratory failure in the morning. The nurses at the hospital were never ordered to call him if things changed with Mrs. Hall. An autopsy was done and it showed that a sponge had been left in her abdominal cavity but it did not cause her death. Mrs. Hall's husband filed a malpractice/wrongful death case against Dr. Hilbun stating that he failed to follow-up after the operation and give post-operation instructions to the nursing staff. At the trial, Hall's husband called Dr. Hoerr as a witness but was disqualified because he was not familiar with the local standard of care, only the national one. After reading about this case, I believe that Dr. Hilbun was at fault for the four D's of negligence. The first D is duty, which there was a patient and physician relationship. He did perform an exploratory laparotomy on her for a bowel obstruction after she came in for abdominal pain. The second would be derelict,......

500 Days of Annie Hall

...500 Days of Annie Hall Romantic Comedy contains the favorable elements of both romance and comedy genres. Some notables are funny jokes and humorous plots, which surround a love story or the search of a true love. Woody Allen’s Annie Hall (1977) and Marc Webb’s 500 Days of Summer (2009) are both movies that fall under the genre “Romantic Comedy”. These two movies are connected in many ways, for each film contains relatable characters and effective narrative techniques to portray a realistic relationship. Each film is also able to portray the differences between the reality and expectations of a relationship in humorous ways that allow them to be called a romantic comedy. Alvy and Tom are two different characters with separate mindsets. In 500 Days of Summer, Tom Hansen, despite his passion to be an architect is an unmotivated greeting card writer who deeply believes in the concept of true love and soul mates. Whereas in Annie Hall, Alvy Singer is a pessimistic comedian and control freak that is seen changing things to benefit him. Both characters due to their attitudes on life and relationships bring forth different aspects that make them such unique and likable characters. Tom strongly believes that he will never be happy until he meets the person that he believes is ‘the one’ for him. Whereas with Alvy he pushes Annie and doesn’t fully accept either Annie’s insecurities or support her as she finds ways to work through them. Summer and Annie, like their male......
