First EL 236 blog entries.

I won't always spell out exactly what you should write in your blog, but to get you started, take another look at MySpace: The Movie. This film records the consequences of transgressing powerful boundaries. In the opening scene, a young man illustrates the self-exploratory process of taking pictures at unusual angles. At the end of the scene, who ends up with power? Choose a few other vignettes, and analyze the central figure's relationship to power. Who gains it, and who loses it? Do you see any patterns? In what ways does this movie teach viewers to avoid risky behavior, and in what ways does it celebrate risk-taking?
