It is important for people to have an environment they can escape to, even for a short period of time, to remember happier times and experience freedom. Amusement parks allow people to escape reality and become completely engulfed in a fantasy world which allows people to balance work with leisure. Amusement parks are flawed in some ways, but despite their imperfections amusement parks have proved to be a popular phenomenon over the past century. Many Americans have flocked to the parks to experience entertainment and displays, more parks were built to accommodate the high demand. Parks experienced a high volume of visitors, “Coney Island inspired the creation of similar amusement parks around the country-about 1,500 of them by 1919-among them Olympic Park in Irvington, New Jersey; Riverview Park in Chicago; Cedar Point in Sandusky, Ohio; Kennywood, near Pittsburgh; and Columbia Gardens in Butte,
For the performers, also known as vaudevillians, it was a way to express their creativity and talents with the rest of America. They would travel virtually everywhere and anywhere to entertain others, from small towns to the big New York cities. Not only that, but this was how vaudevillians made their living. It was their way of life, and the things they did would greatly impact not just their success, but their profit In addition, for the average American, it was a very new and interesting form of entertainment. As vaudeville developed over time, the performers and the audience became much more diverse.
With every new age group there will come change, and the people before it will not be as accepting. If you look through a timeline of, say, music, you will notice that as time has gone on, the music has gotten more sexual, more outgoing, more "evil", noisier, even stupider. Each generation needs something to set them apart, and to one-up the previous one. It is a natural way of life, proven by history. Jazz also helped many people in the years to come, the depression years, by uplifting their spirits.
More importantly, it has brought together people of different ages, diverse ethnic backgrounds, and has transformed our culture and others for the better. Thus, it is fair to say, pop music resonates throughout the world, touching people and societies in ways that is baffling to politicians and government leaders. For this reason, popular music has helped make the industry a multi-billion dollar a year business. This highly lucrative business reflects lucidly in all forms of today’s media including film, television, the internet, etc. Popular music began with the publication of sheet music.
Music rapidly influenced every Americans life. It was in their homes, cars, bars, theaters, movies, elevators and countless other places. Music was everywhere it defined what every American loved and worked for, it gave people hope and joy, as well as bringing out every other emotion there is in people. Music was around during the bad times as well as the good, when people were down, there were songs they could relate to, and when they were happy there were songs they could sing and dance to. Many people don’t think of how much music brightens and amplifies many things, such as movies; have you ever noticed how the directors always have a song or tune for every part of the movie bringing out just the right emotion in you.
He states, “There are lots of young people, and a tremendous amount to do: a thriving music scene, ethnic and cultural diversity, fabulous outdoor recreation and a great nightlife.” Just like this young man, many are searching for places that are more tolerant, diverse and open to creativity. The creative class is defined as a “fast-growing, highly educated, and well-paid segment of the workforce on whose efforts corporate profits and economic growth increasingly depends.” The creative class is pro gentrification. Those in the creative class help to grow and flourish places like Austin and Seattle. Other cities, such as Pittsburgh who choose not to grow or encourage high-tech industries will continue to disintegrate. Places like Austin and Seattle are considered “plug-and-play communities.” This is a place where newcomers are quickly accepted.
I've learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel.” This quote comes from Maya Angelou. I relate this to the industry of entertainment because entertainers, performers and musicians make people feel a certain way. Entertainers can make millions of dollars and that all comes over time with practice and perfection of their craft. The entertainment industry is for talented people, young or old, who want to share their talent with the world. Put thesis state statement here!!!
It was the springboard to fame for many singer, dancers, and performers and was indeed the board Ellington jumped from. The club management decided what audiences wanted to see in their clubs. As a result of the Harlem Renaissance and the growing interest in black entertainment, audiences enjoyed watching the many talented black performers. To have suc... ... middle of paper ... ...re about us today, and the interpretation of these people is our future music.” (Haskins, 74) Ellington did not like his music categorized and enjoyed freedom of expression when presenting his music. He believed composition, arrangement, and performance were all interdependent on one another.
Since everyone can relate to a movie, it’s safe to say that movies can be pretty influential. Some areas where films have made an influence are storytelling, entertainment, and culture. Movies are a great version of storytelling because they make stories more relatable and memorable. Storytelling is one of the most powerful capabilities humans possess. It can be used to motivate, dominate, and influence people.
The outstanding cinematography shed a positive light to the intense movie. Furthermore, the choosing of the actors and actresses in the film play an important role. I say this because Cuba Gooding Jr. really embraced the character he played. By doing this the audience was drawn in more because of the emotions he portrayed. More positives about this movie was the ordering of it.
