Deck the Halls movieAmadeusSPANISH 2 – (Dr Jimenez) — Final Exam.  — I guess it went ok?

EVENING MOVIE — tonight, we watched Deck the Hall drive-in style with a projector outside for the whole community.

WRITE A PAPER — today I re-watched Amadeus for my Arts & Ideas reflection paper due tomorrow.  Here is my opening paragraph:

The Modern period, beginning with the Renaissance, is most known for its ideas in rationalism, empiricism, enlightenment and romanticism.  A reflection of the time can be seen in the he 1984 film Amadeus, based on Peter Shaffer’s stage play.  The story takes place during the end of the 18th century and is based on the lives of two composers of the time, Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart and Antonio Salieri.  Within the film, signs of the “modern period” can be seen.  More specifically, the modern traits of displaced eschatology, the rise of the genius and technology are demonstrated in Amadeus.
