Has it become stronger in death?

I Found Working on this project to be very interesting.  Friedrich Nietzsche is not someone that one would normally think about having to do anything with art, but strangely enough it turns out that he does in fact have quite an influence on art, and theories on art.  However, because he is someone that is not commonly associated with art, there is not a lot of reference to him in journals or articles.  This was not as much of a detriment to my research as one might think, because it lead me down a very interesting path.  What I found was that Nietzsche’s ideas have invaded our popular culture, and that culture has in many ways watered down and perverted the ideas.  However, it is thought this dissemination though popular culture that Nietzsche has entered into art directly.  Because his ideas are part of the common lexicon much of his work has ended up in many movies and music by accident.

This Project was way way out of my comfort zone.  While I love music and it has always been a big part of my life I have never been one to make it.  I am for all intents and purposes tone deaf so I have always stayed away from making music.  So when I was presented with this project I became quite worried.  I did not think I would be able to do the project because I have never been able to make anything that sounded in any way decent in the past.  However, after a couple of hours of working on the project when everything started to come together my feelings on the matter completely changed, to the point that by the end I became much more confident in what I was creating.  I also have a bit of trouble uploading the files to youtube.  It took me a very long time to figure out how to get them up there.
