Music videos are so 80s/90s, right? They belong with the era when MTV screened wall-to-wall vids instead of 'reality' TV? Try telling that to the millions who bought Gangnam Style; were they really simply loving the music? 1.6bn (and still climbing) have viewed the video on YT, not to mention the many re-makes (school eg, eg2), viral ads + celeb link-ups (even political protest in Seoul) - and it doesn't matter how legit it is, this nightmare for daydream Beliebers is making a lot of money, even from the parodies + dislikes. All this for a simple dance track that wouldn't have sounded out of place in 1990 ... but had a fun vid. This meme itself was soon displaced by the Harlem Shake. Music vids even cause diseases it seems!
This blog explores every aspect of this most postmodern of media formats, including other print-based promo tools used by the industry, its fast-changing nature, + how fans/audiences create/interact. Posts are primarily written with Media students/educators in mind. Please acknowledge the blog author if using any resources from this blog - Mr Dave Burrowes

Blog settings: background colour

(In most cases) you'll be doing a lot more blogging, starting now. When you form groups in September and start copying each other's posts you want to avoid any issues with font colours, so you'd be well advised to all stick to the plain Simple template, the first in the list. Otherwise what you get is a standard black font on one person's post appearing invisible on anothers' (who has chosen a black background).
I did put in the instructions for setting up a blog not to select a black background.
You can, as per those instructions, apply your choice of background image to personalise it, and start adding gadgets too.
