Why I Love my XBOX 360: To watch movies on Netflix

How Video on Demand is Changing the Media
Y'know a few years ago it came up to me when people asked, "Hey Bo, would you rather have an Xbox 360 or a Wii for Xmas?" I hesitated, but found out later the great advantage of having a Xbox 360 was being able to use it as a media streaming device by using my Netflix account.

Now, they don't blatantly come out and talk about the 360 in any of those new fangled and catchy Netflix commercials, but they do mention how some members can watch ...

Animation: Love, Hate and War

The Influence of Animation During World War II
Yeah, I know what you're thinking, just what the hell is this guy talking about. Well it's a bit of a long story to explain this thesis statement, I have had a love of Animation, (I'll just call them cartoons for now on) for nearly twenty years and that is why I go to the School of
Visual Arts and I'm majoring in my third year of it now. Entering this school I was offered a class called the History of Animation, it expanded my own knowledge of Animation and widened my horizons of its uses. Growing up I had just saw it as a comedic art form, relying on the slapstick of Bugs Bunny and Daffy Duck as two comedic partners reminiscent of Laurel & Hardy, Martin & Lewis and Abbot & Costello. But now I'm aware of what cartoons were used for in it's over a century life span; Comedy, Love and Adventure as just a few examples. But one question plagued my mind, does Animation only go as far as entertainment, or does it have a much more psychological response to it's audience on the aspect of what it wants and gets out of the social life of Americans. I have seen it before in the past and I feel a second rise is coming for our times.......
