Characterization

1.) Two examples of direct characterization are seen very early in 1984. in the first chapter we can get a clear sense of how winston looks and acts. to sum up the begining it states Winston Smith, a small, frail man of 39 years drags himself home for lunch at his apartment on the 7th floor of the Victory Mansions. Another clear example if direct characterization is in book 2 chapter 2 when we get a small depiction of Julia, Winston encounters a Party member in blue overalls (Party uniform), and sees that she is the brunette coworker. He takes this as confirmation that the brunette was spying on him. Now two examples of indirect characterization would be the Proles and O'brien. Now the proles arn't really just one character but their actions are that of a whole, but we never really get an image of what they look like. The same is with O'Brien for we never get a description of what he looks like. 

2.) Yes, when George Orwell has the characters talk, he will jump from narration and speak as the character is expected too. Example : "Who controls the past," ran the Party slogan, "controls the future: who controls the present controls the past." And yet the past, though of its nature alterable, never had been altered 

3.) Winstin is a dynamic character. One main reason is because this novel is a bildungsroman which basically says the main character is going to go through three stages. (child, teenager, adult) 
And in between each transition is a sudden self realization from the character. example: When winston reads the note julia gave him saying"i love you" he leaves his childhood stage and enters the teenager stage. 

4.) I came away with the feeling that I had read the biography of a person from a past life. Even though everything was fictional I really made myself believe it had happened. the example is once I finshed the book and put together everything at the end, as Winstin sat in the bar with a single tear falling from is cheek.

Essay



         With Ichabod Crane representing Romanticism and Young Goodman Brown backing up Colonialism we see these two characters spit some of the illest rhymes and pronounce the sides they be reppin. Ichabod Crane is one hundred percent Romanticism. Romanticism is a revolt against aristocratic and political norms. This movement was all about validating strong emotion. In the legend of sleepy hollow emotion is everywhere. While in Young Goodman Brown there is an under lying social law, by that I mean everyone followed the rules in the community. No one was to question the laws, this is colonialism. Colonialism is all about restricting freedom and having limitations in writing styles.

         In the legend of sleepy hollow elements of Romanticism can be found throughout. Although love is one of the elements, it is not the only determining factor of Romanticism. This story was written with freedom and ideas that would cause the reader to create a connection with his/her emotions. Young Goodman Brown also does this but it is subtle and gives more a moral then then emotion. the legend of sleepy hollow also focused a lot on mental imagery. This novel embodied Romanticism for is it does not follow the normal edicate of colonial literature.

        Young Goodman Brown is colonialism. In the novel it show that there is a community in which everyone follows a certain conduct, in a way this hints its colonialism and also is a narrative story throughout. There is imagery, but most of the imagery is an allusion to religious belief. Colonial literature involves colonial life, religious disputes, and are majorly narrative.

BQ: First Steps

Can Marijuana increase your IQ or your over all health?


                This is something that has really struck interest in me ever since I saw the indy film "Super High me." Well know comedian Doug Benson took his on take on the movie "Super Size me" which was about a man who ate only mcdonalds for 30 days to shed some knowledge on how the food can effect the body. Doug Benson took the same approach, but with marijuana and the data was actually quit shocking. I strongly suggest everyone see this movie so I put a link below.

(Warning there is indecent language in this movie, and drug use.)
Super Highme 

                 So what also got me on this subject was from the new laws being passed in Colorado and Washington legalizing marijuana. For some it is nothing but a plant with some effect, and should be distributed to the public much like alcohol. But to others it is a drug that will ruin the lives of many. Now being a high school student I am going to give the information that I know. The worst problem in the lives of people use marijuana was an increase of about $2.00 more on food then their usual amount of about $3.50.  a.k.a. (the munchies)

the medium is the message

L.S.H. 
(legend of sleepy hollow)

                   I do find reading the story much more interesting then watching the movie. When reading, your mind has to make up all the imagery. This causes you to be really creative with how you depict everything and how you can put together the story. Although I will for ever love the visual aspect of movies, it is always good to read a story here and there and challenge your mind to printing a picture with the words you collect from reading.

Prudently- with common sense

Sequester- isolate
Apbons- popularity

Inbibed- drunk in
Oneris- burdensome

Pedagogue- teacher
Peculiar- strange  

One technique in "Legend of Sleepy Hollow" is suspension of disbelief, this technique makes the reader forget that she/he is reading and draws them so deep into the story, they believe it is being experienced in real time. The best example I can think of is when you are in a movie theater/ or reading a book and your mind is so focused on the story you are numb to the fact that you are sitting down in an area that is irrelevant to the story.

Begining of "Legend of Sleepy Hallow"

              Well from looking up others thoughts were on the tone of this story, many said the mood was spooky and mysterious and the tone is almost sarcastic. The begining give you a little background information on when and where this takes place, but also the way it is read allows the ready to get a feel for how the narrator is depicting everything. Doing this draws the reader into the story more, making them forget they are reading a book and filling in a sense of reality. This has been used in the example "the blair witch project" first the put in the news that there were missing campers, slowly the kept feeding information to the media about these people so others would forget that the movie was JUST A MOVIE. Everything was staged, but because of the build up in story made others forget what was right in front of their face.

Presidential Debate and Logical Fallacies.

   There where many Fallacies throughout this entire debate. I heard Romney say he wants to build a stronger bond with china, but wants to put tariffs on their exports. He claims that we will be friends with chine but still keep them in check. Now to me that doesn't sound like such a solid bargain, especially since we (along with others) own china a total of about 4.5 trillion dollars.

1.)  In 1984, Winston Smith lives in London which is part of the country Oceania. The world is divided into three countries that include the entire globe: Oceania, Eurasia, and Eastasia.  Oceania, is a totalitarian society led by Big Brother, which censors everyone’s behavior, even their thoughts.  Winston is fed up with his controlled life and secretly want to join the Brotherhood, a group of underground rebels intent on overthrowing the government(or so it seems).  Winston meets Julia and they secretly fall in love and have an affair, which is considered a crime.  One day, while walking home, Winston meets O’Brian, an inner party member, who gives Winston his information.  Winston has a deep stare at O’Brian before, Which he can recall this event in a dream he had before. Dreams that give him the impression that O’Brian was a member of the Brotherhood. Winston and Julia went to O’Brian’s house together where they were introduced into the Brotherhood.  O’Brian is actually a faithful member of the Inner-Party( the bad guys) and this is actually a trap for Winston, a trap that O’Brian has been setting for seven years.  Winston and Julia are sent to the Ministry of Love(ironic because this is where they teach hatred) which is a sort of rehabilitation center for criminals.  There, Winston was tortured until his beliefs where evaporated with those of the Party.  Winston rejects everything he believed in, even his love for Julia, and was released back into the public where he wastes his days at the Chestnut Tree drinking gin.

2.) This book's theme is to  warn people about the dangers of totalitarian government. This novel also has anti utopian aspects. 
3.) George Orwell (actual name: Eric Blair)'s tone is to let society know that if they let the government have too much power, soon the people will have no say/power at all.     

Examples: “BIG BROTHER IS WATCHING YOU,” the authorities are scrutinizing them. 
 the Party( totalitarian government) is able to control reality, convincing its subjects that 2 + 2 = 5. 
The Party( totalitarian government) controls every source of information, managing and rewriting the content of all newspapers and histories for its own ends.

A Free Mind.

On my walk it was as if my mind had exploded. The thoughts where coming up left and right, but i never really stuck to one long enough for me to understand when I was thinking about  that person/thing/event. In a way, it was such a refreshment from my usual life. All the thoughts I hide away during the day can now be brought to my attention. It aloud me to think so clearly afterword, and the rest of my day was continued with ease.
 
Romantic writing is  "the spontaneous overflow of powerful feelings" Which was exactly what my walk was. So anything that follows this is then considered romantic writing.

Levi commercial (Explained)

the poem is "The laughing Heart" by Charles Bukowski
this poem is about being you to your entirety, not bowing down to something bigger then you. This is ironic cause in a way you are bowing down by buying their jeans, which they claim will give you freedom.
OF COURSE this poem reflects Charles Bukowski! This poem has his name written all over it (besides the fact he wrote.) He was a man of the people and he lived as a civilian so what he wrote really touched other, likely for the reason they went through the same thing.
I found my answers through this site: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Charles_Bukowski
and my other source was from Mareya Biely (google Mareya Biely for her blog on blogger)

"Aha!" meanings, signs, and symbols

An "Aha" moment for me was from the chimpanzee section in the first article. I can now say with out a doubt that I understand what a sign is. "In bringing (something else) to our minds, signs give meaning to our lives." When I read this it was completely an "aha!" moment. Thought about how we as humans communicate and perceive words or object where now very clear to me and shed some light on little things that I would normally never take the time of day to understand.
