In thinking of ideas for this weeks blog I stumbled with what the book was trying to explain of youth and resistance. Life is contemporary and so are ideas, the youth is young because they will the future. The author seems confused on how times have changed along with the culture of you- maybe I cant relate because I am young. However, along with anything else in life cultural youth is always changing and learning and adapting to its contemporary effects of war, drugs, music and the MEDIA. As I try and take a “ADULTS” perspective of this chapter, I become… maybe baffled thinking the adult reading this should know they went through this. So this leaves me with the thought of what is Barker trying to say. Really.
Lets explore space and urban place - now time is space is more appealing and the evolvement of ENTIRE cultures/societies so separate, but merging within each other as if their linked. Linked by what? The Media in western culture and its Orientalism along with its signifiers in society. The film we watched “Lost In Translation” shows us how western culture is exchanged japan, western culture is seen being involved japan such as the karaoke and the commercial that Bill Maury was filming. An American was promoting an American drink- Whiskey! The clashing of the cultures is the cause of globalization.
