This week, Sarah, Bryan and Roxi discuss one of the most prolific film score composers of our time: Danny Elfman.
Okay, I’ll be the first to admit it; I spend too much money on comics. It’s not my fault, really. They are just so fun to read and those price tags only say 2.99. With my iPad, I’ve gotten even worse. Instead of facing the register $25 total, I just buy them all via Comixology and only see a $6 receipt from iTunes every few days. My girlfriend saw my reading list last night and asked just how many series I am reading. It was hard to come up with a total; there are just so many each week. Well it’s time to come out of the shadows. I shall proudly stand up for the comics I love, and, who knows, maybe you can give them a try too, but watch that iTunes bill.
Last week, I shared with you Steps 1 and 2 for how to complete a college degree in preparation for your imminent career as a superhero. One that may even make Phoenix Jones go “Damn!”
Shall we continue? A-thank you!
STEP 3: Plot Out Your Courses
All the following courses are based out of (read: blatantly and shamelessly borrowed from) a 2010 Course Catalog within the California State University system (San José State University, to be exact). They have been balanced to cover all General Education requirements, and exceed the standard 120 unit requirement that most 4-year colleges have for conferring Bachelor’s degrees.
Those who’ve listened to the podcasts know that I am no stranger to theatre (<—the right way to spell it). So naturally, when I took my trip to New York last month, it would have been a crime against the humanities to not see a Broadway show. Of course, those who also know me personally know that next to film and theatre, I’m heavily influenced by comic books. And against the better judgement of my theatre friends, and anyone who saw the show, I decided that the first ever broadway show I would see would be none other than Spider-Man: Turn Off the Dark. And what did I think of this much talked-about (read: disparaged) musical?
