Video Analysis

In the music video Is A women, by Lambchop the idea of death to life is used.  At the beginning of the video we see everything covered by snow; no life can be seen under the snow. As the video goes on, the snow disappears little by little, and life begins to start with flowers popping out of the group.  As the leaf flows down the river, the ground changes from all snow to life appearing from the ground.  We also see that there is only a few fish trying to jump up the river and a bear trying to eat the fish.  This can shows that winter is coming to an end and that spring is around the corner.  As the leaf walks to the tree, we can that more leafs are coming on the tree.  The video end with green leafs on the tree, meaning the Spring has started.
HW: Post three videos you like. Sacred day to you.

Fish on Land

In the song “A Fish on Land,” Lhasa De Sela uses the symbols and archetypes of water, fish, and breathing to express the theme of life struggle. According to Anthony Stevens, “fish are water creatures, they are gifts of the Great Mother as well as a symbolic content of the collective unconscious” (337). A fish gasping for air suggests struggling to live: “And he could breathe again and then he grew and he became a man” (Sela, par.3). A fish on land can die but if “dropped him in water and he could breathe again” (Sela, par. 3).

Last night I had a dream about buying my first car.  I could not decide on what vehicle to buy, so I flipped a coin.  I decided buy a new Chevy Silverado because it had a motor that got more miles per gallon.  I bought the truck and two days it got stolen, and then I woke up.
