Finger Eleven!

Any Moment Now Finger Eleven has been together for 20 years, they are from Burlington, Ontario, and came together in high school as a funk-styled band who was originally named Rainbow Butt Monkeys. However, the name was dropped by the time the first album came along. The band is now made up of Scott Anderson Lead vocals, James Black Lead guitar, Rick Jackett Rhythm guitar, Sean Anderson Bass guitar and Rich Beddoe on Drums/percussion. They relaized thier first album in 1998 called Tip. They have five all together, the newest one is called Life Turns Electric. Famous Last Words Lost My Way Even though Finger Eleven is infact a Canadian Band they do not show their Canadianship very well. Their songs do not mention anything about them being Canadian or they don’t sing about where there from. They have toured to many different location in Canada like; Vancover, Ontario, Quebec, Toronto, Alberta, Montreal and many other places. Althought Finger Eleven does not protray thier Canadianship all that much they continue to keep fans entertained and wanting more.

Living A Dream

Paralyzer is a one of Finger Eleven's top songs, it was released in 2007 on thier fifth album "Them vs. You vs. Me." The song recived airplay in both the United States and Canada. It was preformed live on March 14, 2007 on the night show with Jay Leno.

Does Violence Make for Good Entertainment?

The violence in the movie is what makes the movie good because everyone enjoys watching a good fight scene. Most people prefer those type of movies compared to others. A lot of movies are jam packed with violence from start to end and it just becomes to much. Even though this movie does have a lot its all to go along with the storyline of two guys becoming supervillans who are really superheros. so they have to fight and cause some trouble but only to make the other guys scared. In my opnion an action movie can not be peoduced without at least some violence becuase to those poeple who love to watch action movies its because the word action to them means violence of some sort. The two reasons involved in the movie are: Movies, by their very nature, are about movement, and some of the most exciting kinds of movement involve violence and Movies are made with a young audience in mind.

Another movie that has violence is Troy this movie is an Historically flim. people want to know what happened in the past and they only way we can really do that is by a moive. all the fighting in this moive needs to be there so that people can understand what happend years ago. This moive has just the right amount of fighting, where most moives have to much blood and gore this one didnt.

Nielson Report How Teens Use Media

One thing that surprised me in the list of comments was "I received 40 texts since we started doing this - in 15 minutes" this was shocking because thetas a lot of texts to get and reply to in that period of time. Another comment that surprised me was "I haven't turned on my TV in over three years" I don't think I could live without my TV because most of my spire time is spent watching TV.

One that I have in common with the report results is that "I have to watch TV to fall asleep" this is because if I'm just laying there in the dark I'll think about stuff instead of sleeping, but if the TVs on I'll just listen and sleep. I also agree with the person who said "I google everything" because whenever I want to know something the people I'm around usually can't tell me, so I'll just google it.

If I were to do a survey I would do it one the two points I said I have in common "I have to watch TV to fall asleep" and "I google everything". I would survey high school students.
