‘Civilian journalism’ in concerts

Who needs stage lighting when you have a sea of cellphones illuminating everything?
Who needs stage lighting when you have a sea of cellphones illuminating everything?

This is my pet peeve at concerts. You pay somewhere in the region of $100 to see your favourite artist, only to have your view obstructed by these guys filming the entire set; after which they realize that their phone’s microphone made the whole thing sound like Chewbacca with a throat infection and end up posting 15 seconds of it to Instagram anyway. Just enjoy the concert boise.

Not sure if new medium, or mutation of an older one

The Medium is the Message

In relation to the BCM112 content for Week 2, The Medium is the Message, I took a photo to depict how old mediums can mutate over time into new ones; as is the case with the vinyl turntable which lives on today in the form of the CDJ. The medium of the vinyl became the icon for music playback in clubs and music festivals today, and is an excellent example of a medium becoming the message.

This is my Imgur meme post.
