Critical Approaches to Culture + Communications

A Weblog by Ron Burnett (Founded in 1994 and now celebrating 23 Years!!)

This site began as one of the first academic sites in Canada when the World Wide Web was in its early phase of development. I have maintained it through many iterations since 1994.

Michael Jackson, Race to the Moon and Alex Ross

Greg Tate a writer at the Village Voice has an excellent article on Jackson entitled, [Michael Jackson: The Man in our Mirror](

[Above and Beyond: The Apollo Space Race to the Moon]( is an article by André Balogh that explores and contrasts the differences between what happened in 1969 and the present period. A terrific read.

Alex Ross wrote a wonderful book entitled: The Rest Is Noise: Listening to the Twentieth Century. His [blog]( has some great entries on it.
