Literal Videos

I’m taking this super-great class on coursera, “Music’s Big Bang: The Genesis of Rock ‘n Roll” and I’m learning so much! I don’t usually do the peer-reviewed assignments for coursera classes, because in my experience my peers tend not to understand how to grade things fairly, but the assignment for this class is to make a timeline, which not only sounds like fun but will also really help me to retain the things I’ve learned.

So while looking around for free online timeline tools, I bumped into someone else’s timeline of memes. I managed not to get too distracted, but I did notice the entry for “literal videos”, which I had forgotten about. Remember those? Most of them have been taken down from youtube for copyright infringement, but I did find the first one ever made, “Take Me On”, which is pretty great, and an old favorite, “Under the Bridge”.

“Sometimes I sing under lights that are purple. Sometimes I’m shirtless, and I tilt my head…”

I managed to stop looking for Literal Videos and worked on my timeline a bunch today. By the way, there’s plenty of time for you to catch up if you want to join me in the class. We’re only three weeks in and the deadline for the weekly quizzes isn’t till the class ends in May.
