This can get pretty complicated, so give me a day and I will add them to the lesson.
Falstaff is always full of puns, which is one of the things I like about him, and this is one of his best! Maybe I am just odd, haha. I also enjoy it because its one of the tougher puns to notice if you’re not a fan of Shakespeare and the language.
I don’t want to start a debate here, but I don’t get it. Whats the attraction of “Orange and Yellow”. When I look at it, I think of Orange flavored jell-o. I don’t want to be mean, or a jerk, I just never got “abstract” art.
The Creation of Adam (not just because my name is Adam) by Michelangelo is by far my favorite painting. The talent Michelangelo possessed is beyond any artist these days could even dream of.
Oh man, if that’s it, I am going to kick myself. I’ve read every Terry Pratchett book. Her explanation of representative of an idea stuff totally threw me off!
I don’t think the point of Guitar Hero and related musical games is to teach people to play a real instrument. There is a big difference between 5 fret buttons and a board full of 20 frets and strings.
I agree with Lucy in the fact it’s meant to entertain and it does that, really well. It also allows the currently generation to enjoy bands like Hendrix, Bowie, Alice Cooper, and the rest of the great classics, like you said Avinash.
What it also does is gives the rock n’ roll spirit to anyone who plays it and in turn they start having the bug to play an instrument. I know a lot of people who started playing the Guitar, Drums, or even the Violin after rocking out in Guitar Hero for hours straight. Though, they do get frustrated pretty easy… you can learn Guitar Hero in a matter of hours, not so much a real instrument. Haha.
Ah I wouldn’t worry about adding that, there is an update coming to communities and the Share feature will be added automatically to all communities.
There isn’t any way to add a background image to the entire lesson, sorry. You may want to create a table and put an image in the background, you may be able to work something out that way.
It’s too bad Wes. I think those 1/4 users are uneducated and don’t know there are more powerful, more stable web browsers out there – for free. They use whatever web browser comes with their operating system, and Windows XPs IE6 is standard. Most people wont upgrade to Vista which carries IE7, not that it’s any better. You know what the sad thing is, Windows will never make Chrome or Firefox the operating systems default browser. We have to rely on people becoming more web savy and realize that IE is crap.
On the other hand, now that Google, which most people use to search, is promoting Chrome. It might really take flight since it will be right in front of their faces every time they go to search for something. Cross your fingers, haha.
Oh, I couldn’t disagree more. Shakespeare is an immortal cultural reading experience. Any of his plays, comedy or tragedy, they are so well told that if the students today can learn to understand his style of writing, would find the story as engaging as any story they watch on TV or read.
The young students are to use to the R&B and rap-crap they listen to on their iPods, a cultural experience like reading Shakespeare is probably painful for them. It’ll do them good in the long run.
