Jimi Hendrix: Are You Experienced? Unknown The Jimi Hendrix Experience released its first album in early 1967. Popular music had been leaning towards psychedelics for a couple years already and Are You Experienced? came out at about the same time as the Beatles' Sergeant Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band.

Shakespeare Finds Love On A Midsummer Night
Shakespeare Finds Love on a Midsummer Night Annie W. The forest outside Athens is filled with changelings, magic, and ancient myth: in other words, the stage is set. The night is silent and still as four mortals alternately hate and love, monarchs of the faerie world clash wills, and the mischief of one irrepressible woodland sprite weaves a spell over all. The breath of the darkness is lit with the glow of foxfire; hearts are broken and mended within the span of short hours. In the bower of the

Society's Restraint to Social Reform Unknown Of the many chatted words in the social reform vocabulary of Canadians today, the term workfare seems to stimulate much debate and emotion.

Through Blade Runner, we see an epic quest filled with meaning and symbolism applicable to the human condition. Replicants are basically human beings, except for the fact that they lack a history.
