Have you ever been cheered up by a certain piece of music? Has a song ever made you cry? Music can inspire exaltation and despair. It can bring back long-buried memories, and can even help with the management of brain disorders such as Alzheimer’s disease and autism. It is remarkable that the human brain is so deeply affected by a mere collection of organized sound.
It is human nature to fear the unknown. We seek comfort in the familiar and often harbor resentment towards change. But change can be a good thing. With change comes an overflow of new ideas, feelings and concepts. There are, however, certain things in this world that are just not meant to change; I believe the Star Wars franchise belongs in this category.
Ready to enter a small, unstable job market? Ready to be out of school? Not quite. When I entered into my fall semester of my senior year, I was expecting it to be my last semester.

Griffin, a tall, lanky man in his thirties did say he had success as an athlete just not in football. “When I was twelve my friends encouraged me to try out football. There was this girl that I liked at the time that I was trying to impress, but my first throw hit her right in the face, and I never threw a ball again.”
Jokes can be politically incorrect. That’s fine. That’s great. It’s humor. It’s funny. – Except when it’s not. Except when those jokes are aired to an entire nation (of which, granted, only 40.3 million tuned in) and aren’t followed up with any sort of balancing force. Especially when those jokes don’t enlighten, but rather perpetuate established cycles. Not to mention when they’re jokes we’ve heard a thousand times before.
If you have not seen the finale of 30 Rock, do so before reading the following. If you have not seen the past 7 seasons of 30 Rock please do so now. I’ll wait.
