Exploration Three Naomi Hillman

A) In the essay "Fortunate Son" by Dave Harsh he really doesn't use any characterization. i say thing because Harsh spends most of the time describing things that are and were around him. In the first paragraph he goes on talking about where he lived, "In a two bedroom house with blue-white asphalt shingles that cracked at the edges when a ball was thrown against them and left powder like talc on fingers rubbed across their shallow grooves." Marsh is telling the whole story as if he sharing us his thoughts. I feel that the writing is at its best when he goes on talking about his father on page 139 in the first paragraph. He goes on saying,  "My father worked without illusions, as a railroad brakeman on freight trains that shunted boxcars through the innards of the plants." Be honest I thought what he said about his father was funny.

B) Okay so i have tons of artist and songs that change my perspective but theirs one artist that always makes me feel 'alive' and his is Taknaori Nishikawa aka TMRevolution. Takanori is a famous Japanese artist, he tour all over the world including the U.S. His music inspires me to become the person i am today. Him and I relate in so many ways for the simple that he's a fan Linkin Park, which I think is funny. When you listen to his music it makes you want to get up and dance and that's what I do all the time when i listen to music. I once found out about TMRevolution when I was in junior high. One of my friends let me barrow this anime, I watched the opening and heard his voice and decided to look him up. When I did i knew that i was in love with him. Now today I got just about all his music now. I'm a crazed fan I'll admit, but for the right reasons. His lyrics are worth listening to if you like Japanese music

                                          He only 45 he'll be 46 this month 09/19 and he was
                                               also in a band called Abingdon Boys School                                                           



  1. One of my friends from high school listens to music like this, and he says that he enjoys it and loves it. It is awesome how someones music that is foreign can make an impact on our life.

  2. I don't know a lot about Japanese music but that sounds so cool! I've listened to a few songs from different artists and I agree, they do make you want to get up and and dance! (and he looks so YOUNG! I hope I look like that when I'm 46)
