Hills Reading List

Mona Lisa Overdrive, William Gibson. Science Fiction, features a character who is the star of a reality show but feels herself increasingly trapped. How can she escape?

A Heartbreaking Work of Staggering Genius, Dave Eggers. For the MTV Real World audition chapter, and for the reality vs. fiction problem.

Watching Dallas, Ien Ang. Exactly what kind of pleasure do people get out of TV melodrama? What sociological conclusions can we draw from these shows. Nothing on reality TV here, but a good introduction to media studies.

Sexual Personae, Camille Paglia. An overblown and infuriating book, with absolutely no credibility, but it's fascinating in its depiction of the complex ways in which people use art and myth to create their personalities.

The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life, Erving Goffman. A game theoretical approach to the minutest types of everyday interactions. How we present ourselves, and how we examine other people's presentations of themselves for information.

台灣的偶像劇越來越多人看,連韓國都瘋迷,台灣最近無敵珊寶妹的偶像劇很火紅,籃球火也展現出不錯的籃球絕技,帶點KUSO的內容的黑糖群俠傳也有對中國功夫的傳承,比笑話還好笑!台灣政治討論區中,總統府裡面的馬英九最受大家討論,因為浮動油價機制還沒結束,所以最近發現有不少人用免費空間網路打工的兼差抵抗現在的通膨,為了不讓電腦中木馬都會裝防木馬軟體以及防毒軟體,甚至還有人會去買大樂透微風論壇討論如何中獎,真的很誇張...

Youth is not wow gold a time of life;world of warcraft gold it is a state of mind; cheap wow gold it is not a Maple Story Accounts matter of rosy cheeks, red lips and supple knees;mesos it is a matter of the will, a quality of the imagination,wow gold kaufen a vigor of the emotions; it is the freshness wow geld of the deep springs of life.maple story mesos Youth means a tempera-mental predominance of courage over timidity, of the appetite for adventure over the love of ease.

When the aerials are down, and your spirit is covered with snows of cynicism and the ice of pessimism, then you are grown old, even at 20, but as long as your aerials are up, to catch waves of optimism, there is hope you may die young at 80!
