SO back in during the revolutionary war the British soliders sang a song called Yanke Doodle (which is now a famous American song and even the state anthem of Connecticut).
SO MY QUESTION TO YOU IS, WHAT DOES THIS SONG HAVE IN COMMON WITH THE 2004 GREEN DAY SONG AMERICAN IDIOT?
1. Okay so American Idiot is quite simple what the title means. But you don’t really know what Yankee Doodle means right.
Okay so Yankee is basically an American person. But what the fuck is a doodle?
Wait wait. So Doodle means “fool” right. Technically this means that the song is literally called American Idiot. But that’s not everything.
2. The meaning in American Idiot is according to Wikipedia that Green Day and Billy Armstrong makes fun of the American people.
“American Idiot” contends that mass media has orchestrated paranoia and
idiocy among the public. Citing cable news coverage of the Iraq War, Billie Joe Armstrong recalled, “They had all these Geraldo-like
journalists in the tanks with the soldiers, getting the play-by-play.“
He felt with that, American news crossed the line from journalism to reality television, showcasing violent footage intercut with advertisements.
Armstrong went on to write the song after hearing the Lynyrd Skynyrd song "That’s How I Like It” on his car radio. “It was like, ‘I’m proud to be a redneck’ and I was like, 'oh my God, why would you be proud of something like that?’ This is exactly what I’m against.”
But what is the meaning of Yankee Doodle? According to Wikipedia:
“Traditions place its origin in a pre-Revolutionary War song originally sung by British military officers to mock the disheveled, disorganized colonial “Yankees” with whom they served in the French and Indian War, apparently written c. 1755 by British Army surgeon Dr. Richard Shuckburgh while campaigning in upper New York.
The British troops sang it to make fun of their stereotype of the
American soldier as a Yankee simpleton who thought that he was stylish
if he simply stuck a feather in his cap.
You see a pattern here? Yankee Doodle IS LITERALLY A 18TH CENTURY VERSION OF AMERICAN IDIOT.
Hi! I’m Matthew, a Trans guy from Connecticut. I’m an actor, and I’m very interested in pursuing that as a career, as I’m studying at a performing art’s school currently. I’m honestly kind of a nerd, with science and English being my favorite subjects, as well as history. (If the whole acting thing doesn’t work out, I’d like to become a geneticist or a historian) I love the performing arts and I play the piano, guitar, viola, and I sing a little. I’m currently in the Lion King and have been in over 100 plays and musicals since I was a kid. I’m guilty of being obsessed with Survivor. Like OBSESSED with Surivivor Like I said, I’m a trans guy who’s closeted currently, but on my way to coming out!
Preferences: Anyone is great, I love everyone, but I would prefer someone who’s trans and/or shares some of the same passions as me.
Connecticut Senate has just UNANIMOUSLY passed a law banning conversion therapy against minors! Since it has already passed the House of Reps 141 to 8, it now moves on to Governor Malloy, who has promised to sign it into law, making it the 8th state to do so!
Thanks to a lot of lovely people, Virtual College Visits can officially start!
What is this post?
This post is a way to connect students who are unable to visit a certain college with someone who has visited that college.
There are so many things about a college that can’t be learned by looking at their website, or comparing statistics. Yet, at the same time, it is impossible for most students to visit every college that they’re interested in. This is a tool that will hopefully help bridge that gap!
How do I use this?
Think of a school that you’re interested in that you probably won’t be able to visit. Then, scan this (alphabetical) list of schools to see if it’s listed. If it is, congrats! The url(s) listed next to it belong to a person/people who have visited that school. They have contacted me saying that they are willing to talk about their experience at that school with other potential students. Feel free to shoot them a message explaining that you saw their url on this post and want to learn about x school (You should probably specify what school because most of the contributors have visited more than one school).
This is cool! Can I contribute?
Absolutely! Send me (appblrgirl) a message with the schools you would be willing to talk about with others. I will continue to update this post periodically.
Unfortunately because of school and various life things, I won’t be making any more updates to this post for the foreseeable future.
The school I want to visit isn’t on this list!
That sucks. Keep checking back as the list gets updated, you never know when your potential school will show up!
You can also message me with additional questions if you have any.
A huge thank you to everyone who has contributed so far, and good luck to all of you!
P.S. To avoid a large number of schools in the ‘U’ section, any schools starting with ‘University of’ have been reformatted. e.g. Virginia, University of

Some more From Eden? Maybe a light chapter - big Hollywood movie star comes for dinner and meets Clarke’s parents?
“Are you sure about this?”
“No, but I think it’s a bit late for second guessing.”
The highway lazily curved and bent through the trees, half trailing the edge of ocean on one side. The water was calm and still, the Atlantic not particularly interested in waking from its summer nap despite how late into the evening it was getting. From time to time, a house would appear, interjecting itself into the woods, a long driveway seen snaking up and disappearing. It was entirely foreign and new to the actress, and so despite her girlfriend’s worry, she was excited.
Alabama - racist and homophobic. i think u like statues cuz you’ve got a giant fucking one called vulcan thats like what? 100,000 pounds?? ??? wow. very extra.

Wyoming - racist which is ironic since ur the equality state and also you’re obsessed with guns.yellowstone national park is p much the only reason people go there. you carry shotguns around with you for no good reason.
I think it’s supposed to be a kind of derringer, except it’s chambered for either .44 or .50 rimfire and is close to weighing two pounds. Designed by Henry and Lewis Hammond and manufactured in their shop, the Connecticut Arms & Manufacture in Naubuc, USA between 1865 and 1868. That’s a derringer for when you actually expect to be attacked.
Vincent van Gogh (1853-1890)
“Vase with Red Poppies” (1886)
Oil on canvas
Located in the Wadsworth Atheneum, Hartford, Connecticut, United States
Flowers were the subject of many of van Gogh’s paintings in Paris, and one of his many interests due in great part to his regard for flowers. He even advised sister, Wil, to cultivate her own garden, to help her find joy and meaning in life.
Manufactured by Simeon North in Middletown, Connecticut c.1820′s for the civilian market. .75/19mm caliber cap and ball, twin 20cm long smoothbore barrels, swivel ramming rod. Simeon North is one of the contender for the invention of the milling machine, due to being the first recipient of a military contract mentioning part interchangeability. It was indeed during the early 19th century only that firearm manufacture truly started to industrialize itself, with the most direct result being that parts from a single musket for example would fit any other of the same model thanks to new precision tooling replacing hand-filing.
