Transcript of Midterm Extravaganza
The song I chose is Changes in Latitudes, Changes in Attitudes by Jimmy Buffett. I have always been able to connect with any Jimmy Buffett song throughout my life. I always find him soothing and relaxing. Throughout the song there is always a talk of change. Going from one place too another, or just doing something that you dont usually do one a day-to-day basis. Change keeps us from getting too boring and doing the same thing everyday. Also in the verse there is talk about people always rushing around and always being busy. In the first picture you see Speedways gas prices. This picture fits well with the song because its about change. Gas prices in todays society are always changing. The second picture is of a Chilis restaurant and the To Go option they offer. The picture symbolizes the constant rush of everyone in society today. People cant even sit down at a restaurant to eat. They just call it in and take it home to eat. The third picture is of two road arrows. This picture symbolizes the constant direction of people. In life there are no arrows and if there are in your own you need to change that and take a new path everyone once in awhile. The fourth picture is of some leaves. This picture indicates the change in the color of the leaves from the seasons. This also shows that everything changes. The final picture is from Yellowwood State Forest. These trees symbolize the changing of the leaves. Also the trees seem to create many different paths and in life youll have many to choose from.
Al McGuire Visual Aesthetic The visual aesthetic that comes to mind when listening to this song is Al McGuire. He was one of the best college basketball coaches of all time. He had a saying, take a right turn. Which meant instead of going to same way to work everyday or doing the same things everyday. Do something that you usually wouldnt, even if it is taking a left turn instead of a right and see where it takes you, change things. Lyrics/Verse It's these changes in latitudes, changes in attitudes Nothing remains quite the same With all of our running and all of our cunning If we couldn't laugh we would all go insane
