They seem "smarty" enough even.
of course, this means I have to write aforementioned "smarty" papers soon.
I'm very proud and or confident about one of these final projects.
In that one I'm jumping back a few years (2001) and using an album by one of my favorite singer-songwriters to explore cross-gendered music. What happens when a song originally written and performed by one gender is covered by another.
Doesn't that seem brilliante'? I can't claim the idea as my own. It actually came from a lecture concerning the Liederkreis or song-cycle composed by Robert Schumann--a German romantic composer during the 19th century. His wife was actually the subject of our lecture though--Clara Schumann is amazing!
My "other" proposal was born out of the Shriver Report and I think I over-thought it. We'll see what the professor says--I am way out of my league on that one.
Full Frontal Feminism, deal with it!
So today's photo was taken from my BlackBerry. I wore my plaid Birkenstocks for the first time this semester. The weather was perfect. Swirling leaves and warm temperatures led to interesting sights on campus:
- Peter Pan & Tinkerbelle in full costume (fairy wings included)
- followed by two girls, arm-in-arm
- a crazed-squirrel trying to decide which tree to scale
- five or six tiny birds sharing a chocolate chip cookie
I survived. Now onto another day...(GRE countdown: SIX days)...
