Art: The Ultimate Expression
Before the portrayal of the human body can be critiqued, you must understand the artist's culture. As man evolved over centuries, his views of the body also transformed.

Music is an elaborate art form that will always remain ever changing. Music developed drastically from it's beginning in the Prehistoric era to the 14th Century.
The exact origin of music is unknown. It is known that music was used in prehistoric times in magical or spiritual rituals but no ...

Music Today : Just a Bunch of Garbage?
It's 4:00 pm and you just got home from school. You turn on the radio only to hear some media generated stuff banded together by some lame drum beats. This is unfortunetly, the music of today.
Along with pop music and boy bands, alternative and rock music has , essentially gone to the pits. There's truly no other way to put it. The media has been spoonfeeding us talentless garbage and sell out's for years but it is only now manifesting it's int...

Sculpture of the Old Kingdom of Ancient Egypt
Egypt is situated in the north-eastern corner of the African continent. It is composed of two very different regions--Upper Egypt and Lower Egypt. Lower Egypt--the Black Land as it was also called by the ancient Egyptians--with its fertile soil strip along the Nile River makes up the northern part of the country.

- Leda Atomica
Leda Atomica (24 x 18"- oil on canvas), is a painting by Salvador Dali (1904-1989) who was the top Surrealists of this time. Surrealism explored the subconscious, the dream world, and irrational elements of the psyche in the firm belief that the discoveries to be made from such exploration would be of greater fundamental importance to the human condition than any other form of social analysis. Surrealists like Salvador Dali was very fascinated by the ephemeral state of the m...
- Masaccio: The Holy Trinity
Masaccio: The Holy Trinity
The Holy Trinity by Masaccio was done approximately 1428. It is a superb example of Masaccio's use of space and perspective. It consists of two levels of unequal height. Christ is represented on the top half, in a coffered, barrel-vaulted chapel. On one side of him is the Virgin Mary, and on the other, St. John. Christ himself is supported by God the Father, and the Dove of the Holy Spirit rests on Christ's halo. In front of the pilasters that enframe the cha...

- A Story About Seeing NOFX
A story about seeing NOFX
On November 26th I went to the Stone Pony in New York to see another of my favorite bands, NOFX. NOFX is a punk-ska band. Punk meaning fast paced drumbeats and quick singing and ska meaning a song played with trumpets. The band members are Fat Mike (vocals, bass), El Hefe (guitar, trumpet, vocals), Eric Melvin (guitar, vocals), and Erik Sandin (drums). The one thing I found out there was that El Hefe sings a lot. I thought he only sings in a few songs but when...
- Modern Music
In an age of error the most influential thing in a child and or a teenagers life is music. Whether it be Reggae, Hip Hop, Gangster Rap, R&B, Oldies Rock, Latin, or Heavy Metal it still has a way to overpower a persons mind no matter how old they are. Right now pretty much everybody that I talk to when I am on the Internet like Rap. I donít understand how people could listen to non-stop cursing and fast-paced lyrics.

- The Basic Dilemma Of The Artist
The Basic Dilemma of the Artist
The psychophysical problem is long standing and, probably, intractable.
We have a corporeal body. It is a physical entity, subject to all the laws of physics. Yet, we experience ourselves, our internal lives, external events in a manner which provokes us to postulate the existence of a corresponding, non-physical ontos, entity. This corresponding entity ostensibly incorporates a dimension of our being which, in principle, can never be tackled with the instrumen...
