I am blogging these because I did really good on it and it is funny to read
we were learning to persuade the reader. e.p we should not have no uniforms.

GOAL:Stay in the right tense
video games should come alive

Video games should come alive because we will have real life heros. For example, pacman and sonic save the world from ghost and egg man. If we have people like that we will never have criminals ever again. If we have heros we won’t have people robbing banks because they will be caught right away. Therefore, videogames should come alive.

With video games coming to life that means you could play the games for real. This helps because you don’t have to waste your money buying the games, because you can play them in town. if video games come alive you don’t have to wait in a long line until you get into the arcade you can just play in the streets and roads.

Another reason why video games should come alive is we could play the games for real what I mean by that is that you could use the buildings as the walls from pacman and you could watch pacman play the game that is why video games should come alive. If we have the games we could have people playing the games going into the maze of the pacman and the track of sonic.

My last reason why video games should come alive is with guys like pacman and sonic we don’t have to waste energy on cars and if we have pacman and sonic we could ride pacman into battle and then the prison that they go in will be pacmans mouth.If video games come alive we will not need to pay for oil because pacman does not need oil.

Do you really think video game should come alive?will they should come alive. I have proven this because we can have heroes,We can play them for real and we don’t have to waste money on oil.Did you know that pacman can eat anything?

Dick Frizzle Art Icon

I am blogging these because it was cool to do.
I was learning about dick frizzle and his art
WALT locate and summarise ideas
Art icon
By Dick Frizzell
Dick Frizzell has made an icon of himself...
Dick Frizzell is always on the hunt. He’s keeping his eyes open for the next ‘Frizzell’—a fish-tin label, a kink in a rural road, a cluster of sale signs on a fruit stall. A cultural magpie at large, Frizzell has carved a niche by painting icons of New Zealand life—overlooked motifs that, once identified, instantly become part of what we all recognise as Kiwiana.

Now 69, Frizzell has painted still lifes, pop culture, landscapes, children’s books—a seemingly haphazard collection of media and subjects that he insists has a central theme. By identifying cultural icons from the clutter of our everyday life, Frizzell says his work sparks a relationship with the viewer.
“I like that little flash of recognition. It’s that connection that people want; they want to feel connected. And they want the connection to be personal and real,” he says. “They see some kind of cheerful affirmation of their environment, where they live. They think, ‘Oh yeah, New Zealand’s cool’, and I’m happy with that.”

Frizzell grew up barefoot in Hawke’s Bay, cycling between haunts in Hastings—the swimming pool, the sawmill, out to the river and the picture theatre.
“My father was an engineer at the freezing works and would bring home meat, and take me rabbit shooting in the weekends,” he says. “As I grew up and read Kiwi literature, you begin to realise that you have had this kind of iconic upbringing. I think it puts you in a position where you feel comfortable to comment.”

By the time he left art school at Canterbury University, he and his wife, Jude, had a daughter, so Frizzell began his art career determined to make a living from it. First in advertising, for seven years, then painting. He began with a series of successful exhibitions, painting humorous self-portraits, and everyday objects such as fish-tin labels.
At the age of 44, Frizzell experienced a sort of mid-life painter’s block. In desperation, he turned to the New Zealand landscape—in particular, to the scenes of his boyhood. The works he produced over the next four years proved as popular with the public as they were in the art world, “working in effect exactly as I’d hoped they would”, says Frizzell, “helping a new generation re-see their world”.

In 1990, he turned to New Zealand’s cultural landscape, producing a series of works around the Maori adornment, hei tiki. His exhibition included 29 paintings, 25 works on paper and three sculptural pieces, all riffing on the well-known symbol in Frizzell’s bold colours and stark, graphical style.
“I think part of what an artist is meant to do is awaken people’s awareness of their environment. It’s like keeping people’s eyes open,” he says.

“I paint to succeed, I hate to tell you, I don’t paint to fail,” he says. “I’m a serious painter.”
In his perpetual quest to identify icons that New Zealanders can relate to, he has created an iconic status for himself as well.
