  • Random Musing: King of the Jungle

    Posted on February 24th, 2014 tkm28 No comments

    474234While procrastinating my homework today I ended up on cracked.com. Somehow I ended up looking at all of their Disney articles and ruining my childhood one article at a time. I was already aware that Simba and Nala were actually half siblings, but after seeing videos and reading articles published to this site, The Lion King will forever be ruined for me. I’ll still watch it, because it’s The Lion King and it will always be amazing, but it’s tainted now.

    Thinking about this movie made me question why the lion is the king of the jungle, though. Lions live in the sahara. The sahara is not a jungle, not even close. It’s dry and dusty with very little brush and a few random trees and a lot of rocks. Who decided this looked like the jungle and why were they allowed to stop attending school at such a young age (since we learn about the jungle starting in first grade)?

    That said, now I have “The Lion Sleeps Tonight” stuck in my head…Ee-e-e-oh-mum-a-weh!

  • Random Musing: On Top of the World

    Posted on February 22nd, 2014 tkm28 No comments

    I had never heard the song “On Top of the World” by Imagine Dragons until I started this project. The sample project about Video Star used this song for the music video created using the app. I’ve since fallen in love with the song and have listened to it on repeat for the last two days.

    While I do enjoy the song, I think I may subconsciously be hoping that it will get my creative juices flowing. Obviously the creator of the Video Star project did a very good job on the project, so maybe if I listen to the song she was inspired by my work will earn a good grade as well…?

    I can hope, anyway.
