“It Seems We Living The American Dream”

All Falls Down is one of my favorite songs from Kanye West and I decided to do a lyrically analysis on the song. I feel like so many people listen to songs but don’t really understand the lyrics. [Verse 1] Man I promise, she’s so self-conscious She has no idea what she’s doing in college […]

All Falls Down is one of my favorite songs from Kanye West and I decided to do a lyrically analysis on the song. I feel like so many people listen to songs but don’t really understand the lyrics.

[Verse 1]

Man I promise, she’s so self-conscious
She has no idea what she’s doing in college
That major that she majored in don’t make no money
But she won’t drop out, her parents will look at her funny
Now, tell me that ain’t insecurr

The concept of school seems so secure
Sophomore, three yurrs, ain’t picked a carurr
She like, fuck it, I’ll just stay down here and do hair
Cause that’s enough money to buy her a few pairs of new Airs
Cause her baby-daddy don’t really care
She’s so precious with the peer pressure

Couldn’t afford a car so she named her daughter Alexis
She had hair so long that it looked like weave
Then she cut it all off, now she look like Eve
And she be dealin’ with some issues that you can’t believe
Single black female addicted to retail, and well

1) This part is talking about a girl that is in college only because it’s what makes her parents happy, but she herself doesn’t have a clue as to why she is there.

2) They make the idea of going to college seem like such a “sure thing” when it comes to getting a job afterward but we all know that dream job isn’t guaranteed. She has been a college sophomore for 3 years (which is longer than the standard amount of time) and she hasn’t even figured out what she wants to do with her life. At this point she’s basically making the decision to just become a hairdresser being that can will give her enough money to buy sneakers, and the father of her child doesn’t care that she is spending money on sneakers and not the baby.

3) Being that she doesn’t have enough money for a car she named her daughter Alexis, this is a play on words. Here Alexis is referring to both the daughter’s name and the luxury car. (Alexis = a Lexus). Her hair was so long that it looked fake so she cut it off into a short haircut. (Eve is a rapper from the 90s that used to wear short haircuts). She’s dealing with so much stuff and shopping seems to be the “cure”.

My thoughts on Doctorrow and Molly Crabapple advice on the creative industry

I enjoyed what I learned in class about Doctorrow’s book on information not wanting to be free and people in the creative industry.

I enjoyed what I learned in class about Doctorrow’s book on information not wanting to be free and people in the creative industry. He really pointed out some amazing facts and aspects to consider for artists or anybody who uses the internet as a platform for their business. I agree that information doesn’t want to be free. People do want to be acknowledged for their work whether its original or not. Each creative individual each believe they have something to offer to society by sharing their art and connecting with people. Its a passion. Whether a person is a music artist, painter, or book writer, they want some credibility because why wouldn’t anyone want to make a living doing something they’re naturally good at and love? But at the same time you cant really expect social media to do all the magic for you. And like Molly said, the Internet will not save creators. Nothing will save creators except for themselves and others that are willing to support them and each other as a whole and as a people who appreciate information and arts. Although the Internet did help make Molly’s success as a artist possible, the Internet is now becoming more centralized and corporate with restrictions and risk of getting your work stolen. But you have to start somewhere and know when and where to take the chance. Its good not to trust anyone fully, think of everything in a cynical attitude concerning your success and make sure you have a separate income on the side in case if things crash.
