An Epic Hero in the Film “Pulp Fiction”? Throughout history, the figure of the epic hero has persisted and although he may take different forms, he generally embodies several key characteristics. For example, an epic hero often is a paragon of some virtue or value that is important in his society. He is often on a quest of some kind and pursues this quest with the utmost diligence and commitment. In addition, an epic hero is generally associated with the supernatural world, either by nature of his birth or his life circumstances (consider, for example, the epic hero of Greek literature Achilles) and comes from a lineage that somehow makes him destined for a particular fate or purpose. Before offering an examination of the ways in which Vincent in Pulp Fiction is not an epic hero, it is useful to look at the ways he does appear to embody some similar characteristics of an epic hero.

History of Rock & Roll The songs and the sounds we call "rock and roll" evolved from many different sources, in many different regions, and at many different moments in twentieth- century history. The music was shaped—and continues to be molded and transformed—by countless regular people, some doing what they love, others seeking refuge from what they hate, some hoping to change the world, and still others resisting what they fear. How many times per week would you say you hear someone refer to "rock and roll" in some form or another? So the next question is, do you like rock and roll?

Hollywood Superheroes Losing The Fight For Diversity hide captionRyan Reynolds plays Hal Jordon in this year's Green Lantern. Warner Brothers Ryan Reynolds plays Hal Jordon in this year's Green Lantern. The big budget disappointment Green Lantern was about a superhero whose powers were only limited by his imagination. Consider the box office potential if movie producers had been as bold as Marvel's Ultimate Comics Spider-Man series when it introduced Miles Morales — a part black, part Hispanic teen — as the new Spider-man. It wouldn't have been much of a stretch for producers to reimagine Green Lantern as a person of color. So if Hollywood can crank out fantasy pictures with blue Smurfs, why is it so reticent to do the same with African-Americans, Hispanics and Asians? Every hero needs a villain, and I can tell you from experience that supposedly "liberal" Hollywood loves to make the audience the bad guy. There is, however, a bit of evidence to back that claim. Clearly the folks at Marvel comics are open to the possibilities.

Blues Music History Sometime around 1890, the blues emerged as a distinct African-American art form, rooted in the southern U.S. and drawing on work songs and hollers, folk tradition, black spirituals, and the popular music of the time. Looking back from 1890, one can speculate about the African influence in the musical structure of the blues as it grew from slave culture and the memory of slavery. Looking forward from 1890, a time of transition in America and of dashed hopes for blacks in the resurgent Jim Crow South, one can see the blues as a powerful force both shaping and shaped by the evolution of American popular culture (from the "race records" craze of the 1920s through the blues-fueled rock revolution of the postwar years) and the history of black and white race relations in the century ahead. "The blues ain't nothing but a good man feelin' bad." That's what Leon Redbone said, anyway, and who can't relate to that? What about when your parents went crazy for Elvis?
