    Note to Self: Be more intelligent when you compare things.

    [sub]The Crucible and The Kite Runner both show dominant themes of powerful terror. For example, during The Crucible, the town seems to be in a constant fear of the impending threat of the evil (witchcraft) running throughout their town, when in The Kite Runner, Afghans are fearful of the Taliban, who quickly become a terrorizing government. The Taliban was welcomed into Afghanistan with open arms, much like how the Witch Trials seemed to hold noble intention, but both quickly ensued complete chaos, with people feeling panicked and on-edge. The people of Salem were fearful of the people they loved being killed as a witch, when the people of Afghanistan were fearful of people close to them dying for getting in the Taliban's way. Although one could go the step further and state that this power was through religious zealotry and eventually self-interest, like in both works, I believe it to be more realistic to just focus on the broad scope that power often brings fear if used corruptly or unfairly, which is a concept we can easily grasp today. Although people in North America don't have to deal with these issues, it's unfair to say we, as a planet, have grown past that point, especially when considering parts of Asia and Africa today.[/sub]

    [sub]Media Assignment



    Tombstone seems to have a very potent “Western” feel to it, with overwhelming emphasis on the conventions of the overall Western genre. Upon seeing Western films through fresh eyes, I can only assume that people who haven’t experienced North America first-hand would get a completely different impression of us then our actuality. In Westerns, the man with the fastest gun drawing is always right; everyday citizens –equipped with their Colt .45’s- can shine as gunslingers and triumph over the unquestionable evil, when in actuality, most of North America doesn’t settle its problems with violence –or at least for the everyday people. Western films also tend to over masculinize and conform the sexes of that time, when today North Americans are much more androgynous in that sense, including women wearing pants and the acceptance of homosexuality. Additionally, Western films are much like the medieval hero stories that tell of greatness, but through a modern –or at least more modern than medieval times- niche. To an audience like Afghanistan, Western movies are appealing because it holds the values of defined male and female, which relates to their culture, in an environment much like their own. These movies hold the morals of a typical hero story, but with a foreign twist coming from a big, successful country. It’s a life of danger and with Hollywood lights, full of glamour, which presents a life much more interesting than everyday life. Moreover, it is something for children to dream about and to play out -recreating the ideal world of great, cunning heroes, and tells a tale of everyday heroics through brave citizens with a talent of gun slinging.

    NOTE TO SELF: Hello, MioDio. Look at your ACT 1, now back to the VCV test, now back at your ACT 1, now back to the VCV test. Sadly, the ACT 1 isn't the VCV test, but if you stopped hunching over the microphone on the floor of your closet like some 40 year old who plays World or Warcraft all day, the next bank could sound like the VCV test. Look down, back up. Where are you? You're mixing an awesome cover with the bank your bank could sound like. What's on your screen? Back at the VCV test. I have it: it's an inbox full of the comments you love. Look again. THE COMMENTS ARE NOW FAMOUS JAPANESE USERS. Anything is possible when your bank sounds powerful and not like a lady. I'm on Nico Nico Douga.
