Montag Kills

I think Montag killed Beatty because Beatty took the walkie talkie from Montag and threatened to trace the contact to Faber and Montag did not want that so he burned and killed Beatty with a flamethrower.

F451 guiding questions chapter 1

F1. Describe the society (a fictional America) that Montag lives in. In what ways is it similiar to, but more extreme than, our society?  What signs are there that it is a "dystopia" (the opposite of utopia/ideal society)? Montage lives in a calm place I think when he meant that the houses are "fireproof" I think he meant that there haven't been any fires lately and that the job is getting a little boring and is using crude humor to cheer himself up

2. What makes Clarisse so special?  So different from most people in her society? She's one of those weird and annoying people she likes to get on people's nerves by giving them truths that they don't want to hear.

3. Why do you think the mechanical hound has been programmed to react to Montag?  It's programed to react to Montag because he's the caretaker for the mechanical dog and the programmers want the dog to endure human contact.

Prufrock Paragraph

My first impression on Prufrock is that this story is a more sad and depressing version of a love that only tells the truth about some people. Some people think they're weird or strange that's what makes them think that others don't want to show love towards them. For others they are nice and caring to anyone even the weird and strange, that's love. In Prufrock's story of love  he's showing what the people that are not being cared about feel. They're out of hope for love since no one cares for them that's why this story is depressing rather than being nice and happy.

Everything is a remix

This explain if it's worth living through the bad things of life
The mystery of the afterlife keeps us from killing our selves
     Hip hop was the first type of music to be remixed and influenced everything around to be remixed as well. In a remix can be the arrangement and transformation of samples.
Stories and myths lead us astray from making something new.
     Behind creation it's a lot of random things until insight hits.
     Domain knowledge: learning from other by copying Or mimicry
      With domain knowledge it help create your own variation of what you learned
