Metallica: Unforgiven http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=mYUMPKFYd6g
This is probably my favorite song of all time.  I remember back in the summer before my freshman year in highschool, my dad and I were driving in his car, and he wanted me to listen to Metallica's Black Album.  I had never really known about the band the whole album is just amazing.  Since then, I was lucky enough to see Metallica twice in concert in new york city during my Junior and Senior years in highschool.  This is my favorite song off that album.

Foo Fighters: Times like These http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rhzmNRtIp8k
I really like this song a lot.  It's about eight years old.  I think its naturally a feel good song.  Whenever i hear it, I think of summertime and all the good summers I've had over the years.  It also makes me feel like everything is going to be alright even if that sounds a little corny haha.

Field Trip

     I went to Memorial Library early this morning to find the book I was looking for.  My research paper is about inequality in the workplace over the years.  When I got to the library, I went up to floor 3M, and went into the North Stacks to look for my book.  When I got there, I was the only one there and many of the lights were off and there were a lot of weird creeking noises.  I was honestly a little freaked out.  I knew before that Memorial library is kind of creepy, and being here for the first time, I can confirm that.  I wasn't able to find my book but I found another one that was pertaining to my research paper subject. 
     The book's title is Sex and Business.  Surrounding this book were other books about management within the workplace and personal relations books.  Its call number is HF 5549.5 S45 H58 2000.  I was actually happy to have found the book I did instead of the one I had initially found.  The section I searched had many books that were pertaining to my topic. 

Hite, Shere.  Sex & Business.  Pearson Education Limited, 2000.

1.) The video above is a commercial for Marlboro cigarettes, which features John Lennon and George Harrison from the famous band, The Beatles.  In the commercial, George Harrison is asking John Lennon for a cigarette.  Lennon pulls out a Marlboro and he and Harrison begin smoking together. 

2.) This commercial refers to the second basic appeal in the Need for Affiliation.  The Marlboro company is not just filming two random guys smoking their cigarette brand.  Their filming John Lennon and George Harrison who are both members of probably the most popular rock and roll group ever.  By having these two guys in the commercial, the viewer sees them and is thinking, "Hey John Lennon and George Harrison are awesome and I love the Beatles.  Oh They are smoking Marlboros.  I guess if they like smoking Marlboros, then I should definitely get myself a pack of Marlboros and smoke them!"  Their is a need for affiliation after seeing "cool" people smoking Marlboros.
