My Students: Full of Awesome


Two grad students who are doing independent studies with me also made music videos to go with their projects. I don’t think I can link to Kira’s video on Facebook (a mash-up of Tipping the Velvet and the Brandi Carlile song “I Was Made for You”), but I can link to Caitlin’s video for Lady Gaga’s “Teeth” that encapsulates the argument for her paper on the appeal of much-maligned series like Twilight and Flowers in the Attic for young female readers.

They inspired another student to make a fan vid (go, Annie!). Now I’m itching to make a book trailer for me! I’ve made some for a friend, but haven’t got around to my own yet.

    Somehow I missed this. Easier to take, certainaly, than the whole TWI film, to be sure…

    Oh, no kidding! Painful, painful film. Miss Wendy made me watch it.
