(Highlight Reel): Juno Award Winning Alt-Rockers DEAR ROUGE Educates Us on Social Media Usage with “Fake Fame”

Editor's Note:  Here at Scholastic Perspectives, we'll be examining social media usage and its impact on students coming up.  As an educator, one thing I've noticed is missing is the lack of digital citizenship that is being taught towards our students.  Because of this, students aren't socialized like they should be and major cyberbullying issues arise because of the lack of digital citizenship in the curriculum.  As educators, we need to realize that cell phones are here to stay and we need to adapt, and that's teaching students how to interact appropriately on their cell phones.  Also, set aside times to put away the cell phone and be present, especially when you're with loved ones, nature, or at concerts and other forms of entertainment.  In this highlight reel with Scholastic Perspect...

(Mental Health Conversations): Matt Mucerino of CROSSING I’S DOTTING T’S

Editor's Note:  Matt Mucerino of Crossing I's Dotting T's converses with Madness To Creation to talk about mental health, music and their latest EP.  Crossing I's Dotting T's, out of Costa Mesa, California, recently released their EP, which is one of the most heartfelt EP's I've heard in quite sometime.  Their self-titled EP was inspired by Matt losing his cousin/best friend to cancer at the age of 21.  Their song "See You At Your Funeral" is specifically about his cousin/best friend, while the other songs touch on mental health issues such as depression, anxiety and not feeling wanted.  This EP is a wonderful listen as it mixes the 90's power rock along with the 2000's brand of post-hardcore/emo, and I see Crossing I's Dotting T's doing very well for themselves in the future.  Fans can fi...

Andy Rocks Announce New Single ‘Time Flies’

'Time Flies' is the new single from alt rockers Andy Rocks landing on 29th November 2019. Hailing from Germany, this track follows the release of their debut EP 'Porcelain Heart' which landed earlier this year. Check out the EP here. 'Time Flies' is a more experimental track drawing inspiration from vocalist Andrea's painting which features as the single's artwork. It is an emotional track exploring the human understanding of the passing of time. The abstract nature of the single brings a different sound from the German rockers at this early stage in their career. “Time Flies is a very special song and not one you would expect at once from a rock band. It cannot be put into one specific genre of music. This song for me is rather like an abstract painting (like the artwork). It descri...
