Pop Culture

What is ‘Pop Culture” and how does it differ from Popular Culture?

Pop music (a term that originally derives from an abbreviation of “popular”) is a genre of popular music which originated in its modern form in the 1950s, deriving from rock and roll.[1] The terms popular music and pop music are often used interchangeably, even though the former is a description of music which is popular (and can include any style), whilst the latter is a specific genre containing qualities of mass appeal.[1]

^ a b Steinem, Gloria Outs of pop culture
, in LIFE magazine, 20 August 1965, p. 73 quotation: Pop Culture-although big, mercurial, and slippery to define-is really an umbrella term that covers anything currently in fashion, all or most of whose ingredients are familiar to the public-at-large. The new dances are a perfect example… Pop Art itself may mean little to the average man, but its vocabulary…is always familiar.

Pop Culture: An Overview at: http://philosophynow.org/issues/64/Pop_Culture_An_Overview

“Popular culture has been defined as everything from “common culture,” to “folk culture,” to “mass culture.” While it has been all of these things at various points in history, in Post-War America, popular culture is undeniably associated with commercial culture and all its trappings: movies, television, radio, cyberspace, advertising, toys, nearly any commodity available for purchase, many forms of art, photography, games, and even group “experiences” like collective comet-watching or rave dancing on ecstasy. While humanities and social science departments before the 1950s would rarely have imagined including anything from the previous list in their curricula, it is now widely acknowledged that popular culture can and must be analyzed as an important part of US material, economic and political culture. “Pop culture” is also one of the US’ most lucrative export commodities, making everything from Levi’s jeans to Sylvester Stallone movies popular on the international market. It would be impossible to do an exhaustive (or even a not-so-exhaustive) survey of all the work being done in and on popular culture, so we have included only representative examples of both. Our bibliographies and links focus on major figures in popular writing and basic categories of popular media after the war.”

Say the words ‘Wild Thing’ to almost anyone and they will reply with ‘…you make my heart sing’ thus the nature of popular culture. POP CULTURE in this sense takes a song by The Troggs and turns it into a viral sensation reaching millions of people.The theme of simplicity features in this track as although the song is catchy the line that grabs people is ‘Wild thing…’ two words that automatically cause the corresponding line and tune to enter our heads. At 20 I wasn’t around when this song was originally recorded however I still could sing the lyrics with ease. This causes me to question whether this song specifically is an example of POP CULTURE or whether it has developed from the initial POP explosion to more of an anthem track. POP CULTURE in my opinion is that explosion of something new that is POPULAR for a short spell until it is replaced by another viral sensation. (Citation required) Yasmin Stringer says…

Pop Culture is surface, it has no distinguishable face, just an area where the latest makeup is applied and swiftly reapplied. With close proximity to the proceeding layer. Daniel Boorstin says “with our unprecedented power to magnify the image and popularise the virtue of heroes, our machinery only multiples and enlarges the shadows of ourselves.(citation required) Jack Pittard says…

“The American imagination demands the real thing and, to attain it, we must fabricate the absolute fake” Umberto Eco. Eco.Umberto.[1]

In Umberto Eco’s ‘Travels in Hyperreality’, it highlights the issues with the demand for the ‘real thing’. Due to the demand for Pop culture, it heightens its production so much so to achieve the real thing we must manufacture a fake.

How to Create a Wikipedia Article

///

Writing an article

Learn how you can create an article.

Welcome to Wikipedia! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Wikipedia:Your_first_article

This is a guide to starting your first encyclopedia article. We will explain some of the DOs and DON’Ts, then show you how to create an article. When you’re ready to start writing, consider using the Article Wizard to help you create the article – it will walk you through these steps. Here are some tips that may help you along the way:

  1. Wikipedia covers certain kinds of subjects and not others. If the topic is likely to be suitable for an encyclopedia, go ahead; if you’re unsure, or the article is about you or something you are closely connected to, you can ask questons and read more about subject suitability here.
  2. You can only create a new article directly once you’ve registered an account – you need only choose a username and password. If you don’t want to register for an account, registered and unregistered users alike may submit their article for review and publishing by others at the Articles for Creation project.
  3. Before starting, try editing existing articles to get a feel for writing and for using Wikipedia’s mark-up language – we recommend that you first take a tour through the Wikipedia:Tutorial to learn editing basics. Also search Wikipedia first in case an article already exists on the subject, perhaps under a different title. If the article already exists, feel free to make any constructive edits to improve it.
  4. Gather references both to use as source(s) of the information you will include and to demonstrate the notability of your article’s subject matter. References to blogs, personal websites, Facebook and YouTube are unsuitable – we need reliable sources. There are many places to find reliable sources, including your local library, but if internet-based sources are to be used, start with books and news archive searches rather than a web search. Extra care should be taken to make sure that articles on living persons have reliable sources – articles about living people without reliable sources may be deleted, especially if they include negative or controversial content.
  5. Consider requesting feedback. You can request feedback on articles you would like to create in a number of places, including the talk page of a relatedWikiProject or the Teahouse.
  6. Consider creating the article first in your user space. As a registered user, you have your own user space. You can start the new article there, on asubpage; you can get it in shape, take your time, ask other editors to help work on it, and only move it into the “live” part of Wikipedia once it is ready to go. To create your own subpage, see here. When the new article is “ready for prime time”, you can move it into the main article space. (Notes. The Article Wizardhas an option to create these kinds of draft pages. Even in user space, unacceptable articles (see below) are liable to be nominated for deletion.)
Remember that if the article is not acceptable, it will be deleted quickly. Wikipedia has a new pages patrol division where people check new articles shortly after creation.
