Primal Cry All humans are connected whether or not they do see the connection; for example, when one person is mad and he or she takes their madness out on another person and that person gets effected and the domino effect occurs where the whole community is effected just by that person’s mood. Humans are also connected to their ancestors due to their physical and mental characteristics, such as one guy is naturally strong because one of his ancestors needed the strength for his or her survival. Joseph Conrad goes into explicit detail about how all humans are in touch to their ancestors in the sense of mental reactions. In Heart of Darkness, Joseph Conrad uses Marlow’s instincts in the jungle to demonstrate how even today humans are in touch with their primal senses. In the beginning of Heart of Darkness part 2, Marlow and the crew of his ship are sailing along the Congo River at night and then their senses change from exploring the Congo to heading back to some “home.” “ The prehistoric man was cursing us, praying to us, welcoming us - who could tell ? We were cut off from the comprehension of our surroundings ; we glided past like phantoms, wondering and secretly appalled, as sane men would be before an enthusiastic outbreak in a madhouse. We could not understand because we were too far and could not remember, because we were traveling in the night of first ages, of those ages that are gone, leaving hardly a sign — and no memories.”(Conrad 91) The reason why Marlow and the crew felt like they were familiar with the prehistoric looking Congo was because their ancestors had been there before or a place just like it. Not only were Marlow’s ancestors running around in a place similar to the Congo but they were trying to survive off of it and live another day so they could have their own offspring which meant no limits in order

Far Cry Primal Analysis

...Set in the wilderness of a majestic and savage land called Oros, Far Cry Primal takes the series in the Stone Age where man was definitely not at the top of the food chain. In a world where woolly mammoths and sabre-toothed tigers are just ready to kill you, some humans(mostly foe and some friend), tribes of humans are at war with one another, danger lurks at very nook and corner, and you’re a seasoned hunter called Takkar, the sole survivor of an ambush on his hunting group, attempting to re-unite your lost tribe there is no place for doubt of not having many of those exhilarating moments we get in a Far Cry game. The open Far Cry series going prehistoric, a setting that perfectly suits it hunter or gatherer gameplay, is a curveball thrown by Ubisoft at the franchise after the Far Cry 3 and 4. Ubisoft Montreal is completely the opposite of insane to make a Far Cry game without any guns as violent animals become the trade-off for weaponry. Players will tame animals to do their bidding, hunt for food, fiend off dangerous predators, craft weapons and tools (sometimes from parts of killed beasts) and combat against other tribes to conquer Oros. With the player lacking assurance of what is more...

...I have chosen a photograph of a diverse range of ethnic backgrounds. The photo I believe is trying to state that we can be from different ethnic backgrounds but we can still get along. There is a very large and diverse population on planet Earth. Some people may not like a person due to the fact of the color of their skin. It is sad to see and know that as advanced as we are in technology and evolution. We still have the primal urge to hate someone because of skin color. I truly believe that the photo I have chosen makes a great visual argument. In my photo there are hands stacked upon each other, from the adult’s hands being the base to four more hands stacked on top of one another. As the stack go up, the smaller the hands, ending with an infant’s hand on top of the stack. Each hand is that of a different ethnicity. While I was looking for a photo for my assignment I notice the different diversity of the hands. I notice that the photographer had placed the hands, so that you could notice the difference of skin color. The photographer also made sure that the adults hands were at the bottom while the younger hands were put on top. I think the photographer was trying to show that a family can be created by not allowing boundaries to stop you. My interpretation showed a family setting, with a diverse background. While I was looking through photos for my assignment I notice a certain picture. While I was looking at the photo, it reminded me a lot of my own family. I have a...

Boys Don't Cry

...Rudek Spinos !7 November 2015 Discovering Self-Identity As we grow older and become more aware of the social world, we often find ourselves learning and changing different preferences. Often times, this includes small quirks such as different foods we might have enjoyed at some point but grew out of or deeper insights such as self-discovery and learning what we stand for in life and tough situations. The complexity of this experience may vary for different people and is often a harder concept to fully grasp for ourselves but leads to shaping who we are and what differentiates us as human beings. To demonstrate, sexual orientation and gender identification has been a complicated journey for some to overcome. In the movie, Boys Don’t Cry, Brandon Teena struggles with these notions since he is biologically a female but would rather identify as a male. Teena undergoes a self makeover and ultimately changes her name into Brandon Teena from Teena Brandon. Although there are a variety of factors that attribute to his decision, including living in a small town with virtually nothing to do and no room for growth as well as having a carefree attitude full of law breaking and making poor choices, he ultimately just identifies as a male and is interested in women. In the film Brandon meets a woman, Lana, he begins to feel attracted to and who he deceives until one day he is discovered after he has been arrested and is put into the women’s jail raising many questions. Eventually he...

Boys Don't Cry

...Boys Don’t Cry The movie Boys Don’t Cry is a great movie with a very emotional storyline. I believe this movie showed that being transgender is not as uncommon as many people think it to be. Also, it illustrates the fact that even though someone is transgender it doesn’t make them any less of a human being. After discussing the movie with some of my classmates, I realized we had different feelings towards the movie. There were some things that didn’t quite make sense to them, but made perfect sense to me. For example, one of my classmates could not understand why Brandon continued to lie and deceive everyone. She thought if Brandon would have been honest from the beginning then he might still be alive. However, I disagree because I feel that Brandon wasn’t being dishonest to trick people or hurt others; I feel that he really thought of himself as a boy, so to him it wasn’t lying. Brandon was just trying to start over fresh in a new place and didn’t want to bring his past with him. I believe Brandon waited so long to come out because he knew he would not be accepted by his family. The movie showed how unsupportive his cousin was about his decision to become a boy. I truly believe that Brandon moved to another town to have a fresh start at life; there he had a greater chance of being accepted the way he was. Even after Brandon’s death his family still showed how unsupportive of him they were by putting, “Teena Brandon, loving daughter and friend” on his headstone. As...

Short Stories

...The Four Musicians of Bremen In the story a donkey, a dog, a cat, and a rooster, all past their prime years in life and usefulness on their respective farms, were soon to be discarded or mistreated by their masters. One by one they leave their homes and set out together. They decide to go to Bremen, known for its freedom, to live without owners and become musicians there. On the way to Bremen, they see a lighted cottage; they look inside and see four robbers enjoying their ill-gotten gains. Standing on each others backs, they decide to perform for the men in hope of gaining food. Their 'music' has an unanticipated effect; the men run for their lives, not knowing what the strange sound is. The animals take possession of the house, eat a good meal, and settle in for the evening. Later that night, the robbers return and send one of their members in to investigate. It is dark and he sees the eyes of the Cat shining in the darkness. He reaches over to light his candle, thinking he sees the coals of the fire. Things happen in quick succession; the Cat swipes his face with her claws, the Donkey picks up his hooves and kicks him, the Dog bites him on the leg, and the Rooster crows and chases him out the door, screaming. He tells his companions that he was beset by a horrible witch who scratched him with her long fingers (the Cat), a man with a knife (the Dog), a monster who had hit him with a club (the Donkey), and worst of all, the devil who screamed from the rooftop (the Rooster)...

Portrayal of Mother and Motherhood

...Essay: Portrayal of Mothers and Motherhood Motherhood is a big task for mothers to go through. When women become mothers, they go through a lot of changes such as women after become mothers become more responsible, physical changes, etc. Motherhood is a mechanical set of duty and feelings that starts from the pregnancy to the baby birth (Akujobi, 2011). Becoming mother is a great experience that is shaped by culture and social perspective. Mothers losses their freedom, independency as when they get attached to their baby. Mothers need to compromise on many things like for example sacrificing their sleep, their food, their body, their autonomy and many other things. Motherhood images differ from culture to culture, as they filter through our worlds. Mothers though have very huge responsibilities as to bring up their children, to make them learn the language and the culture where a child belongs to but they are portrayed as the criticized figure or nonexistent. Motherhood representations is everywhere, could be good or bad and it could be empowering or being slave.

Lord of the Flies - Essential of Humanity

...the island get corrupted through their primal instincts of their savagery. The savagery that are explained in the novel, are divided into three levels, first level is the good potential, next is experience, and the final stage is savagery. First of all, in the novel the kids are full of pride and full of education and morality. The oldest boy out of all is 12 years old, which is a good year for knowing how the world works around them and how to behave properly. Through the supervision when the boys were back in England, they describe themselves as noble beings. “’We’ve [the boys] got to have rules and obey them. After all, we’re [the boys] not savages. We’re English, and the English are best at everything.’” (40). in this discussion, Jack Merridew, the choir boy implies their pride of being English and that they should not spoil themselves from nobility to savages. There is irony used because throughout the plot summary, Jack Merridew becomes the most cruel out of all the boys, and him saying of that they are ‘not savages’ gives an ironic effect. It wasn’t just the authorization and rules that are mentioned, but the emotions for caring for one another made another sense of feeling in the beginning for hope and survival for the kids. “Simon found for [the littluns] the fruit they could not reach, pulled off the choicest from up in the foliage, passed them back down to the endless, outstretched hands.” (56). Simon represents the primal of goodness that is deeply tied within...

Greasy Lake

...beginning of the story, the narrator depicts himself and his companions, Digby and Jeff, as rebellious teenagers who seek destruction in their lives just to look cool. “…gin in one hand and a roach clip in the other”, they took drugs and drank alcohol, listened to loud music, wrecked others’ properties, watched people make out by the lake, and “didn’t give a shit about anything” as they drove recklessly. The author portrays Greasy Lake as “fetid and murky” with its banks “glittering with broken glass and strewn with beer cans and the charred remains of bonfires” . This image of destruction parallels with and supports the main characters’ violent behaviour, thus explaining why they to Greasy Lake. As the teenagers rebel, they allow their primal instincts to govern themselves. Dictions including “snuff”, “howl”, and “primeval susurrus” imitate their animalistic behaviour as they inch towards what they perceived as “nature” then, which is to rebel. The main characters’ wish to seek adventure also determines their rebellion. They are shown to have “cruised the strip sixty-seven times” to search thrill within a small, isolated area around Greasy Lake. The repetition of their activities reflects their dissatisfaction of the lack of excitement within the region. The personification “winked” further demonstrates how something with only a tinge of...

Nietzsche's Dionysiac Analysis

...theorists and welcomed by one of the most accomplished musical geniuses of his time would certainly seem to provide some evidence for this stance. Further evidence for this interpretation exists in an examination of the language and phraseology used in the text. Its bold imaginative language is far from the dry words of academic theory. Nietzsche, who was also a poet backs up his academic claims with very passionate language. He poses questions such as:How can he bear, in the wretched bell jar of human individuality, to hear the echo of innumerable cries of delight and woe from a wide space of the world's night, without inexorably fleeing to his primal home amidst the piping of the pastoral metaphysical dance?"We are addressed in the urgent preacher like tones " Look ! Take a close look! That is your life! That is the hour hand of the clock of your existence!" . This is not an arid theoretical instruction to the individual but rather a primal almost frantic appeal , Dionysiac in nature to all who can hear. What we have then, in Birth of Tragedy, is a book which uses theory as a platform for art. In other words the vary existence of Birth of Tragedy belies the claim that theory is created at the expense of art. In this instance, at least, a theoretical construction provides the very structure for art to exist.Birth of Tragedy is not just a single book and therein lies a major hurdle in attempting to consider any aspect of it through a singular lens. This book is at least dual in nature...
