Quick list of the reading, since it’s a little different than what’s on the course calendar:
“Music Television Mike” (On Writing p 603)
“Take the Cannoli” (Blackboard PDF under “Course Library”)
“The Braindead Megaphone” (Blackboard PDF under “Course Library”)
Here’s a sample QQC to get you going:
How have things changed on MTV since “Music Television Mike” was written?
What made Sarah Vowell so obsessed with the Godfather movies in “Take the Cannoli?”
I would argue that even if you do not agree with George Saunders’ left-leaning politics in “The Braindead Megaphone,” you could find common ground in his arguments about the detrimental effects of mass media.
Post by classtime on Wednesday. Happy reading.
