The Boiling Point: EP5 Summary and Playlist
Good evening fair Golden Hawks!
Last night’s episode of The Boiling Point was a celebration of sorts, with touches on popular topics in the news and of course, a jocular look at some of this weeks funniest moments in the media. Twitter always has an exhaustive account of any major event that happens – in play-by-play form. One of the best this week, was Newt Gingrich’s posts on the Pearl Harbor attacks, and the attacks in response to his peculiar remarks were equally stellar. Also, a closer look was taken at recent bizarre appointments to the U.S. President-Elect’s cabinet, and concerning events in the EU.
The tunes this week were “holiday” inspired, and included spins from Michael Jackson, Run-DMC, and the Godfather of Soul, James Brown. The choices aimed to reflect that diversity can express the sentiments of a festive season just as handily as traditional favourites. If you’re not sure what form of dance expression is appropriate for a genre of music, you can get some hints from our young friend below. Playlist to follow.
Good luck on your exams, and enjoy your holiday!
