MP- N is for New Orleans 

As a native New Yorker, I question whether any other place on Earth rivals the aesthetic experience of this city. Paris maybe it's equal in terms of beauty, culture and romance, but lacks New York's ethnic diversity. The same may be said of London. Los Angeles lacks so very much-- history and soul and romance. …

Kiran’s MetaPrimer #1 — N is for Naive Melody. 

N is for Naïve Melody. If I were to assign one song as my “life anthem”, it would be Naïve Melody by the Talking Heads.  The lyrics remind me of the cyclical nature of life, and how things often come full circle.  The melody is optimistic and strangely sad.  It just seems like one of …

N is for Night Owl 

I used to be a night owl. Sometimes I would stay up till sunrise. My most creative self seemed to come alive then. There was something mystical in the serene of the night. With what felt like the whole world asleep, everything was mine for the taking. Sleepless nights almost energized me. Now as I …

N is for Negativity 

Reading over my previous posts, I'm a little embarrassed at how many contain some form of thinly (or not-so-thinly) veiled complaints about stress, work, and academia in general. I usually try to keep a positive outlook, so I'm not exactly proud of how such attitudes creep their way into these assignments. But judging by the other …

N is for Mr Norrell 

... as in "Jonathan Strange and Mr. Norrell" one of my favorite books. Susanna Clarke wrote this masterful novel that manages to be both witty, insightful, thoroughly entertaining. It's like a George Eliot/ JK Rowling mashup. I love when I encounter a work that is so far beyond what I could ever dream of. I …

N is for No 

For a word that is only two letters, it is amazing how much weight it actually holds. It can be received in such an infinite number of contexts, that its connotations—and what it actually means—are actually quite complicated. It is one of the few words, that when used, can sometimes stand it for entire sentences …

N is for “You’re Getting Very Sleepy…” 

I've always loved Op Art without knowing exactly why. There's obviously the pleasurably hypnotic quality that appeals on a psycho-optic level - the feeling of spatial disorientation and multidimensionality that runs counter to what you know consciously to be a flat image. "The multidimensional nature evoked in aesthetic was designed to be experienced by the …

N is for New York City 

Before coming to the U.S, I  have already known that New York City  is an economic, trade and financial center in the U.S., which also  is known for a cosmopolitan that have attracted many people to come here and start their American dreams. So New York City left me with the impression of brightness, shininess, …

N is for National Parks 

Can it get anymore beautiful? More and more as a society we are losing sight of the natural beauty in the world. Industrialization is consuming the planet and there are fewer and fewer places of natural beauty. Thank god we have the national parks that are preserved so that we at least have some places …

N is for Neutrality 

1. Some teachers make it a point to be neutral in their opinions (at least in front of students). The desire to be neutral stems from the idea that one does not want students adopting the beliefs of the teacher. They want all students to be able to formulate their own opinions without having the …

N is for Anarchy 

This post is a result of my frustration deriving from the restraints inherent to the alphabetical format of this assignment. As I'm sure many of you are experiencing, every time I come up with an issue I want to address, I find that I have already dedicated that particular letter to another post. As time …

N is for Nineteen Eighty-Four (1984) 

N is for Ninteen Eighty-Four The telescreens in Orwell’s 1984 were the symbolic eye of Big Brother, always watching, always listening. The screens were meant to monitor the citizens of Oceania, but even more so, to instill a sense of constant fear and shame into their psyche. WAR IS PEACE FREEDOM IS SLAVERY IGNORANCE IS …

N is for Ninety-Nine Problems 

I have been thinking a lot recently about the images that listening to a song can produce. Rap and hip-hop are genres of music that provoke sensory imagery due to the emotions and feelings they include. I am especially interested in music and sociology, and I thought this blog post was a great opportunity to …

N is for Noctambalism 

I’ve been thinking since our last class about sleep and how it regulates our ability to function normally. Of course, there have been countless studies done to unlock the mysteries of sleep but very little is known about this life-sustaining mammalian need.  I’ve been reading about some bizarre cases of what happens when normal functions …

Clarke, Henry. Illustration for Edgar Allan Poe's story "Descent into the Maelstrom". 1919.  Edgar Allan Poe's Tales of Mystery and Imagination. Print. Finding comfort in tangibility thematically recurs in my life: Knowing that which affects me fosters this self-aware consolation onto which I hold.The unknown, intangibility, emotionally taxes me somewhat but, over the last few …

N is for “Notes on Camp” 

This is a continuation of a section of my last post (“A is for A is for Education”). First, I’ll paste the relevant part: “How do I know a bad aesthetic experience will interfere with a good educational experience? Just think about our class complaints about Relationscapes for an example. People were complaining that the …
