    Analysis of the Video for Madonna's Song "Frozen"

    3 star(s)

    I think she is singing about her loving someone, but they perhaps not loving her. This is shown in many lines throughout the song. For example she says 'if I could melt your heart', meaning his heart is possibly like ice and he may be cold towards her. Also she states 'your frozen when your hearts not open' which could again mean she can't penetrate his heart. It's almost as if his heart is actually frozen and she is trying to thaw it out to get to it. I believe that in a video you must make it with the type of song it is for in mind.

    However you do have to pay if you subscribe, which may be found off-putting as there's no guarantee that you'll be able to go and see her on her show. In addition to this she has a personal blog too, which often ends up in bad media publicity, usually by getting herself into trouble, due to her manor or constant bitching aspersion and slander on fellow "celebrities". However because of her outspoken nature, her blogs tend to be funny and they capture her personality, that's if it's really lily writing them.

  16. The power of the mass media has been grossly overstated.

    People can have access to information in greater quantity and quality as opposed to what the daily tabloid or newspaper can offer. We also no longer need to be subjected to television or radio schedules in order to access the information. Given such luxuries that new media offers, we thus have even more access to information as compared to the past. Hence the media's influence as an information network has surged and its power is not grossly overstated. Just take for example how periodicals such as Newsweek, or The Economist or newspapers such as The Straits Times or The New York Times, or even entertainment outlets such as MTV have their own websites that promote their content.

  • Outline and discuss the view that media institutions are expanding and becoming more popular.

    "In conclusion, I believe that the media institution is gaining power and will come to eventually directing and determining the culture of society rather than respond to or reflect society culture. Overall sociologist believe that the mass media is increasingly becoming more popular as the term 'meditation' describes this process of mass recognition. The media has begun to replace our local knowledge and awareness. This suggests that the media has become very popular and important in society lives due to the fact that they have replaced community-based forms of social and cultural life. Jamaal Channer"

  • Compare two search engines on the internet.

    "In conclusion, I believe that 'Ask Jeeves' did a slightly better job at finding a Prom dress maker in the UK, because the site was a lot more user-friendly. It was less crowded on the page, unlike 'Yahoo!'. 'Ask Jeeves' didn't come up with the most results, but the results I did get were relevant to my search. 'Ask Jeeves' also gave other related searches, which you could click on, and get even more results. 'Yahoo!' was more funky, and for younger people who have a sound knowledge of the internet, whereas 'Ask Jeeves' is for a wider audience. However, both search engines were a pleasure to use, and they both did an excellent job at finding what I was looking for."

  • Assess the view that women are stereotyped and symbolically annihilated in the media.

    "After looking at these 3 media types, I can say the women are indeed stereotyped and symbolically annihilated within them. All of the 3 medias show in ideal image of women; slim, attractive and fashionable, but this raises a question - does the media create the people in society or do the people in society create what goes into the media? I think that it is the people who create what goes into the media, because things that get printed or shown are things that people in society want to see. In conclusion, you can also look at the feminist view of the media to try to see if women are stereotyped and symbolically annihilated. Liberal feminists believe that journalists have learnt to portray women in a particular way, usually classless and family based. Radical feminists see men as the enemy. Men hold dominant positions in the media and they consciously manipulate the content for their own benefit, and to the detriment of women Finally, socialist feminists blame the capitalist structure for the disadvantaged position of women in society and that the role of the media is to sustain the capitalist system and the role of women within it."
