In this project I wrote a letter as Joseph to Jupiter because Joseph loves Jupiter very much and would write a letter to her. I also wrote to Jack because Jack was the first real friend he has had since Maddie.
Hey Austin. My name is Jelissa and I enjoy hockey, scootering, and baseball. I live in Canada and play for the Sarnia Sting bantam A hockey team. I am enjoying the book so far but I hate how all the chapters end in cliff hangers.
Here is my question:
How do you think is feeling with all this going on in his life? How would you feel is you where in Josephs shoes? Why?
I hope you do well with this question. Can't wait to see you if our classes Skype!
Orbiting Jupiter Movie Songs
If you were to compose/associate a soundtrack for your Orbiting Jupiter movie, which songs (3-4) would you chose and why did you chose them?
If I were to cast a movie for Orbiting Jupiter I would choose the song She's The One by Robbie Williams. I would choose this song because in the song it says if there was anyone calling him on it would be her, and in the book it says that Joseph will never see Madelene again and then later on he says that he will do anything to find Jupiter just to see Madeleine's face again. I also chose this song because it has a kind of sad tone to it even though it's a love song. I like that it sounds sad because Joseph's memory of Maddie makes him sad. That's what is driving him on to go out into the world to find Jupiter and see her in real life. Click here for lyrics to the song
The song I would use for when he finds out Madeleine is pregnant is I'm Not Afraid by Eminem because it shows that Joseph isn't afraid to be a father. I also chose this song because when he has to sign a form to give Jupiter up for adoption he says I will take her, I will adopt her. ¨I'm not afraid to take care of her my dad will help me and I'm sure her parents will too¨. That shows that he is ready to take on anything that comes in the way of him and Jupiter and that he isn't afraid to go and find her. Click here for lyrics to the song.
Another song I would choose would be the song Bet On It by Zac Efron for when Joseph was at the edge of the lake with Jack and his family, and he told them he was going to find her no matter what. I would also choose this song because it shows how he feels inside his mind everyday when he thinks about Jupiter. Another reason for me choosing this song is because even though he knows where Jupiter's star is he commits himself to look at her star every night. That is why I think Bet On It would be a good song for that scene. Click here for the lyrics to the song.
One song I would choose to be in the movie is Lose Yourself by Eminem. I would use this song at the part when the he gets in a fight with Brian Boss, Nick Porter, Jay Perkins. I would choose Lose Yourself for the scene when Joseph gets in a fight because the song has a fast and upbeat pace. I also chose this song because of the lyrics, the lyrics are good for this part of the movie because Joseph was getting made fun of and it made him mad so he decided to act on it just like in the locker room. The lyrics “The soul's escaping, through this hole that’s gaping” is a perfect representation of how he feels about Jupiter, and that is the reason he got into a fight.

Overall I would choose She’s The One, I’m Not Afraid, Bet On It, and Lose Yourself. Thanks for reading my work.
