song recording (goner |-/ )

Posted by jvoltner on 13th September 2017 in Uncategorized

 

For this assignment we picked the song goner by twenty one pilots |-/

It feels a little weird to just read the song instead of actually singing it because we are used to singing it instead of just reading it. I tried to put emphasis on the lyrics ¨weak and beaten down¨ and ¨ The ghost of you is closed to me¨  Because it describes me sometimes.  Also the song is slower than how we read it so that also felt weird.

 

The reason i picked this song is because its emotional and deep just like many of their other songs.

here are the lyrics.

 

I’m a goner, somebody catch my breath,
I’m a goner, somebody catch my breath,
I want to be known by you,
I want to be known by you.I’m a goner, somebody catch my breath,
I’m a goner, somebody catch my breath,
I want to be known by you,
I want to be known by you.Though I’m weak and beaten down,
I’ll slip away into this sound,
The ghost of you is close to me,
I’m inside-out, you’re underneath.I’ve got two faces, blurry’s the one I’m not,
I’ve got two faces, blurry’s the one I’m not,
I need your help to take him out,
I need your help to take him out.Though I’m weak and beaten down,
I’ll slip away into this sound,
The ghost of you is close to me,
I’m inside-out, you’re underneath.

Though I’m weak and beaten down,
I’ll slip away into this sound,
The ghost of you is close to me,
I’m inside-out, you’re underneath.

Don’t let me be gone.
Don’t let me be gone.
Don’t let me be gone.
Don’t let me be gone.

Don’t let me be.
Don’t let me be.

(Ah, yeah)

I’m a goner, somebody catch my breath,
I’m a goner, somebody catch my breath,
I want to be known by you,
I want to be known by you.

 

 

 

reading the song feels weird because i’m so used to listening to it with music. The song has a lot of emotion that’s why i chose the song.  i think it’s harder to read the song than to sing it.

Sunrise on the veld Word craft

Superfluity means an unnecessarily or excessively large amount or number of something. so when it says superfluity of YOUTH it could mean large amount of carelessness, craziness or large amount of joy. The definition also says large number of something like the large number of black ants.

Eternity:  infinite or unending time. also endless life after death. in the story in says like when a child hears the word eternity and tries to understand it, since eternity can mean time it takes time for the child to understand the word. It takes time for everything, I think that time is never on our side.

Luxury: the state of great comfort and extravagant living. Luxury is the enemy and it almost won in the beginning of the story when it said ” the luxury of the warm rested body”.  There was also the part with the simile with the diamond drops off the grass and the small rosy clouds floated in a lake of gold, Its like there luxury all around us even though nature can be rough.

Tumult: violent and noisy commotion or disturbance of a crowd or mob;uproar: I think it is interesting how she used this word to describe the Crimson and gold sky when  the definition is completely different. But in the story there was some talk of luxury and how it is the enemy, The crimson could be the blood of people fighting over the luxury of gold or money.

Anguish: excruciating or acute distress, suffering, or pain. I thought again with the whole luxury thing and i like it how we are vulnerable in luxury but when we leave it like the boy leaving his bed his skin is numb, we feel little or no pain if we are numb. 

 

Who am I

I am a person that loves music, my friends see me as a music lover and as a good sense of humor. I am the only one that cares and know so much about classic cars,muscle cars and old muscle car engines in my class so i think i am unique in that way. I want my friends to see me as a nice person with musical talent. sometimes i see a moment in my dream that lasts like 3-8 seconds and about 2 months later it happens in real life no joke. its cool but i don’t know why it happens i hope i dont lose that ability.

Learning Styles
Understand the Learning Styles and how they relate to you
39%Visual
38%Auditory
23%Kinesthetic

Whatever your strongest Learning Style(s) results are, the best way to learn something is to try to use all three Learning Style approaches whenever you can. Because different activities use different parts of our brain, when we use different ways to do or learn the same thing, our minds do a better job of remembering it.
Visual

39%
As a visual learner, you learn by looking and seeing. You probably like to take numerous detailed notes, tend to sit in the front, often close your eyes to visualize or remember something, and benefit from illustrations and presentations that use colour.

Study Tips
Underline or highlight key ideas in your notes
Use graphic organizers (i.e., mind map, Venn diagram, web)
Pause, and try to create a mental image in your mind, or pause, and draw a visual representation
Turn concepts into charts and diagrams
Auditory

38%
Being an auditory learner means you learn by hearing and listening. You might prefer to listen to audio books or podcasts, hum or talk to yourself often when you are studying, and enjoy acquiring knowledge by reading aloud. What is most important is that you hear what is being instructed.

Study Tips
Record yourself reading your notes and listen to them
Talk with someone about the topic
Repeat information with your eyes closed
Listen to recorded media related to the subject
Kinesthetic

23%
If you are a kinesthetic learner, you prefer to learn by touching and doing. You likely need to be active, take frequent breaks, and make gestures when you talk and explain something. Your preference is for hands-on experiences, tasks that involve manipulating materials, and you appreciate physically expressed encouragement when you communicate.

Makers combine their need for creative, hands-on work with their desire for self-expression and exploration. When they’re making something, they recognize that being practical doesn’t mean that they can’t be creative. Because of their active, hands-on nature, they’re at home with using tools and materials to turn their ideas into reality. If you’re looking for someone who can create something both useful and artistic, look for a Maker.
