Satire  defined as “the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.”Satire is other words is basically a roast of someone or there view/opinions but its mostly used on politicians or major public figurehead who openly voice their opinions.This is because they voice their opinions so much that people always try to poke holes in their views just to disagree with them and make them seem as bad people or illligeniment.Many comedians use satire as an approach to impression a politician or major figurehead.My personal experience with satire is a lot throughout my life cause people use humor as a way to cope with something they cant handle.During last years election, there were many funny memes and internet video about Trump and Hillary and how the world was going to end.Everyone was freaking out, the whole country was in a panic but shows like SNL made fun of our circumstances just so we can find something funny out of that election and calm us down.Like more recently with trump becoming president, in which were everyone who didn’t support him(which is a lot).From News channels to SNL everyone made fun of him for his radical view which is so different than anyone thought.Personally, I laugh at a lot so I love all types of humor like anti-jokes, dark humor, puns, impression ( which is basically satire).The one thing I don’t really find that funny is two certain teachers jokes because they are such dad jokes that it rough to listen to or har to react, because they want the whole class to laugh but only one person chuckles even if ( no means to be rude to those teachers).The examples I provided for the assignment was Mad Tv’s skit of arocrombie and fitch which made fun of how there clothing is only advertised for only half-naked white men or women.My other example was smosh’s video of what if Donald Trump and it made him do simple tasks if he was different which makes fun of him a lot.The only thing I know about mark twain is that he wrote in satire. Apparently, he was saved nine times from drowning in the Mississippi which shows that he is a very bad swimmer which I never knew.Image result for fun facts of mark twain

As we got into the middle of the film Vertigo we had to think of what could happen next or how the movie is going to end.Vertigo is about a retired FBI agent who is told to investigate a friends wife because her husband is worried about her.my reaction to certain parts of the film has been all over the place.One of the many parts I got mad at Scotti was when Gavin (the husband)  gave the initial task to Scotti.Scotti should’ve noticed how weird Gavin was acting and should ‘ve been more careful with everything.The way he even followed Maddie was aggravating because he did it so closely” like when Maddie went into an alleyway to get flowers he just flat out followed her if she just turned around she would’ve known( if it actually wasn’t planned all the way). I understand why he quit being a detective.Another thing that majorly bothers me was when he followed Judy then is forcing her to basically “become” Maddie.By buying her business-like attire and forcing her to dye her hair and completely change into her.Judy should’ve gotten up and left him she shouldn’t have taken that being forced to change there is that old saying “never change for the person you love” Judy apparently didn’t understand it.Another major key point that bothered me was there were multiple scenes where the camera focused on Judy/maddies silhouette and then when Scotti met Judy and he noticed the silhouette he should’ve known it was her.I hated that Scotti basically romanticized her depression and suicidal tendencies to benefit his ego which he fell in love with.I don’t think he was in love with her I think he was in love with the idea of being a hero.One thing I did like was when Scotti pieced together everything of the painting and the old family member Caroline.This has been a great movie so far I hope nothing maddening happens…….

After all the in-depth presentation of Song of Myself by Walt Whitman,  I understood the poem more and comprehended his perspective on life and how he held himself and others.Walt Whitman is the kind of person who is an optimist and loves everyone as well as believing that everyone is good no matter what.Song of Myself is about Walt finding himself throughout his thoughts and mainly in society.A general interesting fact of song for myself is that throughout Walts life he would revise it and then at the end of leaves of grass he had poems that looked throughout his life and what he learned.Personally, i found my section one of the most interesting because it talked a lot about society and how society’s future is in the hands of the younger generation which I can’t help but agree with.Section 4 was very interesting because it talks about being surrounded by people who are freeloaders who have no original ideas and keep rehashing the same thing in a multitude of ways.This is very relevant in today’s society just by not many original ideas are out there because most of the time they are based on something which is still like copying just in a different way.In this section, he does mention that even though he does seem happy all the time, he and everyone else still experience negative things.One other thing I agree with that he mentions just briefly in this section is that he is uncertain of the future which is obviously agreeable but I like that fact that he just mentions it and he does play with it later on in the poem.This is a very important thing to point out which I think connects to the other section I really liked.The other section that I really enjoyed talking about was section 3 even though its majority was basically talking about sex.I only liked the beginning part where he is basically talking about how we should be focusing on the now rather than arguing about different ideals which is basically the majority of what happens in today politics.I understand why this poem is the most influential due to its positive and lives perspectives.
