Goodbye Columbus Chp 1


Page 10- "The darker it got the more savagely did Brenda rush the net..."

Page 11 -"Now I had grown accustomed to the dark..."

So both Brenda and Neil, seemingly as the dark comes in, are better able to free themselves and are more comfortable in doing things in the dark. Brenda is more apt to rush the net in tennis, while Neil is more comfortable in seeing Brenda's figure.


" 'No. I go to school in Boston.' I disliked her for the answer... I come right out and say it: Newark Colleges of Rutgers University" (11).

It seems that Neil wants to, almost boast, about where he goes, while Brenda, while I do not think she seems ashamed, is not as much of an upfront person, because Neil has to awkwardly dig into her to find where she actually goes to college in Boston.

1.When Brenda asks Neil what he looks like he says he is "dark", and Brenda's first reaction, also happens when Neil describes Doris, is are you a "Negro?" Which to me shows that African Americans are still thought of as less and unwanted in this time, because not only does she use the word Negro, but she also quickly asks the question to him, which shows that if he was a Negro she would never want anything to do with him.

2. Doris, Neil's cousin, moves into the local area and she is the one who joined the Country Club, and it was her family that is the members, yet obviously Neil is mooching off of them and using their membership to go the pool. So because of Neil's cousins he is able to jump up classes and seemingly he is a middle to lower class family, he is now living, for a short time, the life of a high roller and going to the country club's pool.

Ya do not laugh, I took this one in front of my Christmas Tree. I wanted to kind of get a perspective on how I fill up a photo and how the positioning can make me seem way way bigger than the tree. I tried to fill up as much of the frame as possible, but also trying to get the focus onthe right part of the photo with the tree. I tried to leave the center as dead as possible knowing that the middle is "dead space".

Took this on the same day as one above, and clearly here my goal was to get my face purely away from the center, and towards the upper left. I think it draws the focus to my face, instead of the center and right which do not offer much in terms of me. 

This I took in school, and it is kind of old. In math class by the way, not Lit and Film... Again you see me trying to draw the focus on the left part of the frame. I really want to leave the center open in all my photos in order to keep that focus on me. The center is not the best way to get focus on something because it is so normal and nothing is special about center. When you see me all the way on the left, it catches your eye rather than me just blandly in the middle

McCarthy's Created World

McCarthey's Created World:

Literal World... 

Even though we never find out what happened to this world, McCarthy still paints a vivid and horrifying picture of what the world would look like without order, society, culture and human life Constantly, like almost every page, McCarthy mentions how everything is covered in ash or soot, which leads us to believe that it was some sort of explosion, with fire, but again we do not know. The ash covers everything which sets the eerie idea that all this we had worked for as a world can be destroyed in such quick manner, and it all becomes for naught. What good is technology, and school and businesses if there is nobody to work, no place to sell or no society to invent? The ash and soot is how the old world is covered up and rendered useless by the apocalyptic event.

Like most books the beginning often provides the background and setting to the book, and it happens here, and the passage I really like as a description of the world is on page 6, it is the bottom paragraph that continues onto page 7. The man and boy come upon an old gas station and the gas station is just overrun by the environment and it is covered in dust and ash. The weeds that are growing on it are pushed aside by the man. The man looks in the gas pumps for any gas but it is all gone, only the faint smell of it is still lingering there, just like how most of our old world is gone but it still lingers around and remnants from the old world still pop up. The man has to look through the trash for useful items, "Dust and ash everywhere." This once nice gas station is a dump and everything in it is damp, ruined and useless, just like the old world items.,

McCarthy wanted to make a world that was destroyed and ruined, where all society is lost and man actually has to revert to old, simplistic ways to survive. Its a run back in time, instead of progressing forward in life, which we want to do, we are actually regressing, and being forced to use ideas and tactics we never thought we would need to. With all society and moral obligations thrown out the door, all usual/normal societal pressures are gone. Such as how we should use full, complete sentences to speak, and how we should look up to and respect out father. McCarthy often uses fragments to describe things and when the two talk its often brief and quick. Why should we speak in full sentences? Who said we have to? If the other person can understand the gist of what I am saying what difference does it make? The sentence length he uses is a parallel to the world the son and boy live in.

Big Themes in The Road.... G.O.D.



In a world where, clearly, everything is lost, it is very interesting that McCarthy would let the man and his son keep their faith in their own religion. What good is religion, like anything else, at this time? Well, I feel when people face adversity or harm, and they want to keep hope and faith in something in order to keep going, religion is often a common place to look. Especially in this post-apocalyptic world of The Road where the man and his son have no faith or trust in anyone else, they truly need something to keep going and religion provides them with some sort of comfort in a place where you can never be truly comfortable. Yet, I find it interesting that the man never actually expresses his true search\ for hope in religion, meaning he never actually states or does something that would key us to his asking of God for help/hope. But, McCarthy seemingly never uses it in the same way. We had the scene of the man (12) on his knees trying to talk to God, and, in my opinion, questioning whether God is even real and that he is actually helping them in some way. Later on though, on page 111, the man uses God as a word to express haste for the boy to get moving and start to get out of that house with the people. Speaking of the boy, I cannot remember, up to page 113, where the boy actually talks about God and faith, it is seemingly always the man speaking. So maybe, it is something we messaged in class, its the idea of a God- Jesus relationship, where the man is God, in a sense, and he is trying to have the boy as his son where he can project his ideas and beliefs into him. Its a stretch, but I do think its there for the boy to be this Jesus-esk character.   

Questions for The Road (updated per reading)

31-53, 53-72, 73-93


Why would the boy and man enter the freezing cold pond under the waterfall? Was it simply to clean themselves or was it something to maybe lift their spirits?

Are the father's insecurities about meeting other survivors hurting their chances of survival? Why is he so reluctant of others/ to leave anything for anyone to see?

What was going on in the man's exchange with his wife? I presumed it was a flashback, but what was with the bullets?

Is the man knowledgable about certain areas in life, because he knew some parts of the brain and speed of sound during the exchange with that man? He also shoots the man in the head while the other man is holding his son. Seems to me like he is a good shot, that is not something many people could do as quickly as he did and accurately.


The man refers to his son as god like (75). Why does he have such respect and admiration for his son, yet his wife had almost no respect for him? Why such a rift?

I was confused by the dog scene. I thought it said it was following them, but the man couldn't catch it. Then it left. What was going on exactly, why do they need a dog anyways?


Is there some relationship between the man and son using "God" so often, yet when they meet the people in the grand old mansion, they use Christ often? Why the difference?

I wonder if the boy is starting to doubt his father because he did not want to go into the mansion initially, then he did, because his father did not want to. Is the son growing up in this dark world starting to learn the ways of life and catch onto to ideas?

Parallels and Contrasts It's a Bird

Part I:
That Big Red S

On page 2, we first see the that red S on the end of the word Huntington, the disease which took his grandmother away from him. This Disease is what has haunted and constrained Steven's life so far, he has always lived in fear of this because he does not want anyone to feel like they lost something if he dies of the disease. Which is why he has such strained and loose relationships with his mother and father. The Big Red S is, of course, most symbolic on the chest of Superman, a man who has saved so many lives and brought happiness to many in dispair. Something that should symbolize life, now symbolizes death for Steven, which is why when he gets the Superman comic from his Dad that he and his brother do not read it. In addition to their hatred of conforming to society, that Big S reminds him on that disease so much that he cannot bear to look at it.  

Part 2:
The Outsider

On page 21 Steven seems to be comparing his life to Clark Kent's because he notes how much Clark fits in to everything he does not stick out like a thorn, he is the face in the crowd which is why his Superhero Identity fits him so well, because he can change back into Clark Kent and fit right back into society without notice. Yet we as a society still thrust people out of the norm, like as Seagle states, the Jews who we mock for their money handling, janitors whos jobs we need yet no one gives a rat's ass about them and no one would notice their disappearance, or how we blame people for stealing something that they didn't and the janitor now who was unnoticeable before, is being pushed out because the workers accused him because he's black of stealing something. Seagle's life is these people, he wishes he was Clark Kent, but he is more like the outsiders.

Part 3:

Achilles' story is one of the most well known and studied, it is as popular as Superman...We even named a body part after Achilles. He was dipped into the River Styx making him immortal, but his mother could not touch the water so his "Achilles Heel" did not make it into the river, making that his weak spot and the spot of his eventual death, much like Kryptonite is to Superman. The one place or thing that can bring down even the most powerful and strong people. We all have Achilles Heel's, and as much as Seagle tries it seems he wants to make his life and unimportant and bland as possible, so that he has nothing to fame and nothing that he can make himself. Yet, just like Superman's Kryptonite and Achilles' Achilles Heel, we all have something that is our own, even if its not good. Seagle has his own personal Achilles Heel which is special to him and him only, and as much as he hates conformity it is something that everyone has, even the mightiest, like Superman...

Part 4:
Colors colors colors

Maybe this could be a stretch and me reading too much into the book, but it seemed odd to be that on 80-81 where Steven has dinner with his girlfriend that she and everything around him is so colorful and vibrant compared to his blandness. When you date someone the goal is to be similar and have similar likes/dislikes, and to no be polar opposites. And we see his girlfriend and her house in complete color, which to me emanates some sort of vibrance and excitement, yet Seagle is in his usual black shirt and is a black hole for emotions. Maybe she is what Seagle needs to become more exciting and vibrant in his life, because certainly he does not have any of that in his life now. Or is it the vibrance actually starting to enter Seagle's life?

Part 5:
Kryptonite no More

We see Seagle at the end of the book showing those two random kids Superman up in the sky, actually pointing out Superman to them, while finishing the famous "It's Bird...It's a Plane...No! It's Superman!" The figure that Seagle detested through out his life, has now become something of a model for him. Those kids have to represent Seagle and his brother as children, because to me it is him telling his younger self to embrace Superman, embrace who you are, no matter if you think you are not special and blend in, you are special because their is only one you.

Fate vs Free Will... It's a Bird

Since his grandmother died from Huntington's Disease I think Steven has been constrained and lives in fear of either getting it or someone in his family gets it. And if he gets it, I think he wants absolutely no one to remember him by anything, so no one will feel like they lost anything, simply because of this Disease he may or may not get. That's why when he initially visits the doctor he persists in knowing about it, to see if he may get it. He is simply lying down and accepting his fate as a human being, and won't do anything and then blames it on fate. 

I think its very similar to Oedipus because once Oedipus realized the prophecy was true he could not stand to do anything, to live almost. He does not want to do anything, and wants to just get away through exile. Oedipus just like Steven was fated at birth, when Jocasta had him, she knew that her child was foreseen to sleep with her and kill her husband. While Seagle is fated to live in fear and sorrow because of his families genetic disease that kills. The prophecy in Oedipus is Huntington's in It's a Bird.

Personally I do not think that the broken pieces of our childhoods are what can bring us down like kryptonite, because I think that even if our childhood was broken, we can overcome those broken pieces to succeed and prosper. And we can make sure that our children are not "broken" by childhood because we as parents can provide as good a childhood as we humanly can. My kryptonite would have to be my family, in the sense that if anything happened to them I would do anything to help them. If they ask for money in the future or any good, it will be hard for my to see my family suffer if I do not help them by giving them what they desire.

Steven's distaste for having children, to me, stems from his fear that the child could contract Huntington's Disease. I believe that is how much he lives in fear of the Disease so much that he will not risk a kid getting it.

Will Steven Seagle Please Stand Up?

From the beginning as a child he seems very inquistive, always trying to ask questions and find answers to things that do not make sense to him and if he does not like and or understand what happened he becomes displeased. As he grows up I never saw him become any wiser, to me he seems to continue to hate interaction with others, much like his childhood, and he still will not do anything he believes is wrong even though his ideas and bases are not that smart and are uninformed. He never stood out as a child, he never was good at anything, and that continued as he grew up.

I think the novel tries to point out how much Seagle just fits into society, he wears bland, boring clothes, he does not have a special job, he has never accomplished anything great and when he has a chance to do something with his life he cannot accept writing Superman. If we get dulled and dimmed by society it is very very hard to break out of those constraints and become ourselves again. Just look at 65, as Seagle stands in front of the words Huntington's, the same word that killed his grandmother and runs through his family. As Seagle stands in front of the single word that defines who and how he runs his life, he is wearing a brown-ish shirt and is plain boring. It is almost like he is either so afraid of Huntington's, or he is so angry and sad that it is in his family that he just mopes and whines about his misfortune. 

Frames for It's a Bird

Page 38.

Well on 38, all the frames are bordered with a thick, dark, black lines, which are prominent in most of the book, with occasional frames with no frames, or different colors. Some of the frames on 38 are cut and made small, and some of the frames are larger than the others, but I think the smaller ones seem to represent almost a interjection of thought or speech. The frame with Superman's chest on it and the following frame, which seem to be a metaphor what for Seagle is thinking. The larger frames seem to be the bulky, info filled story, it is the meat of the pages which to me represents that maybe it means the most to the story in turns of its plot. As I stated earlier, I think the smaller frames are quick thoughts, that imply that someone is thinking of them while talking or doing something. Even on the next page every frame is exactly  the same shape, size, which to me implies its pure story, no real deeper meaning just jargon. 

To me the smaller the frame the quicker the conversation, thought or whatever is on the page because as readers it is in fact a quicker read for us. Their tends to be less words, while on the larger more squarish frames, they have more words, and is story like, its like a square which is a basic shape represents basic information and conformity into the story. Those frames to me tend not to stand out as much, they just fit in with the ebb and flow of the story. I feel I read definitively quicker with the smaller, less-wordy frames, and I take more time on the bigger ones because I have to read more words, and see all the events going on in the frame. Seagle's life is bland and boring, his life has no color so when we see these bland, plain frames its just emphasizes that Seagle is just another face in the crowd.

Women in LA 1990's edition vs Women in LA 1940s edition

In L.A. Confidential and Double Indemnity, we see a male figure fall in love with a women basically at first site. In L.A Confidential, Bud White walks into the liquor store he begins to eye this person in a full robe, who seems nunish. Yet, when he finally sees the beautiful women, he immediately is attracted to her and the romance begins. Which is much the same in Double Indemnity, Walter Neff drives to Mr. Dietrichson's house to sell them on resigning their insurance contract, yet when Mr. Dietrichson is not home his wife, Phyllis, is there barely dressed and clearly attracted to Walter as he is to her. So in both the movies, the main character "falls in love" at first sight, however its what the two women are wearing that is interesting to me.

Lynn Bracken in this shot looks stunningly beautiful and yet she is completely covered head to toe in this black and white robe. I find it almost ironic how a prostitute would want to cover up her whole body, and look completely unattractive until you see her face. I would guess Pierce told her too, but in the 90s where all guys want to do is see pretty girls with little clothes, we see the main girl covered up and looking simply like a nun. However in this exact shot very much like Double Indemnity this is the first moment when we and the main character get to catch a glimpse of the main women. Nowadays movies and us as people are more willing to allow women to expose more parts of their bodies, where as back in the 40s everything had to be covered up, it was scandalous when a movie showed skin basically

Phyllis walked out to greet Walter Neff, wearing only a towel to cover up herself, actually showing off her shoulders! Normally people do not greet visitors and guests with only a towel on, but clearly this a women that does not care and is egging Walter on, and obviously he gets cooked. He clearly falls in love with the first glimpse at her body, and again ironically for the time period for a women and especially a house wife like Phyllis to come out and greet someone exposed is so opposite of what we would think a women would do back then.

It seems like the two women in each movie should be switched in these shots. It would make more sense for Bud White to see Phyllis with little clothes and for Walter to see Lynn completely covered up. Also, the angle of the two shots interests me because in L.A. Bud and Lynn are eye level showing an even playing field, which is rare because most people in this movie abuse and disgrace women. Yet Bud is the only one who shows any respect for women and this shot shows that he thinks Lynn and he are equal. However in Double Indemnity Phyllis is the one towering over Walter as she stands on almost a pedestal, which truly shows that in this relationship she has the power, she controls what happens.

It's a Bird... Images

I am focusing on page 27, where Seagle details the "baby boom" in America right now. That it seems to him that everyone is having kids. He seems to be asking, what's the big deal about kids, they seem to be more hassle than worth. They turn out to be clueless 13 year old kids, who need love, but their loving mom works a busy day and does it monotonously. Then when they grow up, they still ask mom and dad to do everything for them, and they cling to them like growths.

That is why I focus on the bottom three images specifically.

The three images on the bottom are almost exactly the same, it is just of Seagle's face, with a close up on his left eye, and his glasses pushed down below the eyes. Initially I thought these were exactly the same, but on closer inspection, Seagle actually shades and colors the area around his eye differently. The reflection in his glasses change, the shadows above his eyebrow and the dirt and smudges where his eye and nose meet. The background is a bleak green, very bland, boring, and like Seagle is sticking out in a bland boring world.

I think the shadows on his face and glasses, to me, show that the world is ever changing, and that no matter how meaningless and boring your life is, its ever moving and no one thing is exactly a like. Also, Seagle is perplexed by the notion of having kids, and I think he is trying to show you what happens to kids in reality. He is basically a deadbeat writer, who turned down the job of a lifetime, who is odd and seems like the relationship with his mother and he is not close, they rarely talk. He talks about what happens when the kid isn't what "you wanted?" And I think he is like, hey look at me, I am that kid, and guess how I turned out? Not well, and he is making the case for why having so many kids is worthless and not needed.

As I said earlier, all three frames are almost identical, they all are close ups, of one of Seagle's eyes. Medium angle, and its like the camera is staring into nothingness? Its just a bland face, with a bland background, he has no life, nothing to be known for, its almost like he's Clark Kent. He is the guy that just blends into society at a moments notice, he never stand out or up, he just vanishes. And I would guess, that when he wants to become a so called "superhero" we will see the true amazing side of Seagle...I hope.

"Words, Words, Words..." It's a Bird

Seagle seems awfully sarcastic to me, and in particular on page 7, the bottom 4 frames really are great for me. I love how he portrays his vision of the doctors when he was a child as plotting murderers. I like how he especially bolds "plotting", "wanted", and "want." To me, he seems like someone who does not like doing things other people tell him to do, and he wants to do the exact opposite because he does not want to be that submissive. For example, when his dad gives his brother and him the comic, he says he won't read it because his dad told him to, or when his publisher gives him the opportunity of a lifetime he says he won't. And when he bolds "want" and "wanted" I think it's further emphasizing his sarcastic yet non-submissive nature. 

He actually mixes up his bubbles often, like whenever their is dialogue he uses bubbles, as seen when he talks to his publisher on the phone, but I really like how when the phone rings and he can hear his answering machine the bubble is jagged, and pointy and sticks out like a loud ring does, very energy filled. Also, when he is narrating about his life, he goes with boxes, which show a very story like approach to it, where it reads normally and its meant to be informative and clear. Unlike the fast paced dialogue bubbles when he is talking to someone.

Tom Cruise half man, half... drug addict? What's up with that Mr. Cruise?

 I am doing the 22nd shot in the Minority Report shot examination!

1. Here we see Cruise actually going to his drug dealer at night, and the light is hitting half his face as he is looking at his dealer in a dark, sketchy hallway. The brilliance of Spielberg here is, that Anderton (Cruise) is "two-faced." That he has two different sides, on one we see him as this glorious, prestigious PreCrime officer, who is the best in his field. Yet, the darker side of Anderton is this drug addicted father, who has lost his son and has turned to drugs. So its trying to show that Anderton, like so many others, might seem like a great guy on one side, but when we see his other side, he becomes the true person he is.

2. The shot here is obviously a close up on Anderton's face. The angle is a fairly medium angle, pretty much even with cruise. It is a single take, and besides his face there is nothing else in the picture so nothing to say about mise-en-scene.

3. Three interesting details:

1. Well, even though this happens later in this scene, when the drug dealer, who is without both of his eyes, says, "In a blind world, the one eyed man is king," we see in this picture, only one of Anderton's eyes showing, alluding to the fact that Anderton is this extremely powerful man. Also, how appropriate is it that the right side of Anderton's face is in darkness, and when we think of blindness, we think of dark, bleakness, and emptiness, which is what Anderton's face displays
2. When I look at Andeton's face up close like this, I can see a man who actually is fairly "dirty" per se, like his beard is all over the place, he's got some black marks on his face, it is certainly far from the perfect, clean officer we came to see at PreCrime. It is like the closer we are getting to Anderton himself, the more we are seeing his "true colors."
3. Looking at his two sides of his face in this shot, the yin and yang symbol comes to mind. Its the two opposite personas he has, and how they interact to keep him whole and perfect to the outside world. Clearly, one side is this drug addict and the other is the powerful, crime fighting officer.

Where art thou Oedipus?

1. Well, when it comes to his own fate, Oedipus knew from very early on what is own fate was. The Oracle told him very clearly what he would do, he would kill his father and marry his mother. And it is no coincidence that both things occurred. Also, even though he is very intelligent he himself, forgets and dismisses the fact that he could of killed Laius, he brings his own downfall by choosing to ignore the possibility of him doing it. He goes mildly insane and starts blaming others because he never thought of himself as the murderer.

 2. First things first, he is an excellent, excellent leader. He is extremely intelligent, hes caring for his people and has a very good sense of the cause and effect of all his actions. Noticeably, during the plague, while snooping around trying to find the murderer, he consistently shows that the needs and wants of his people are not ignored by the search for the murderer. He is thoughtful and willing to listen to the citizens of Thebes. Where he falls short is his ignorance when it came to the Oracle and he being the murderer. He never listened to the Oracle, he could not put two and two together when he married Jocasta, and he goes crazy and starts accusing his best friend Creon. Overall he is a very good leader, but his few flaws proved to be fatal. 

 3. When the prophet Tiresias is brought it, Oedipus demands that he tell the truth but the prophet is unwilling and Oedipus is driven mad until the prophet tells him that he is the one who killed Laius. Oedipus' impatience is his downfall because he is filled with rage once he hears he did it and immediately disregards the information and begins his accusations of Creon and Tiresias. Tiresias is brought it from no where and forced to stand before this king, all the while he knows that he information he has would insult and infuriate the king, even though it was true. One can see this lack of patience again when Oedipus brutally tortures the Shepard until he tells him who his birth parents are. Oedipus does not want to wait on such topics, understandably, but he needed to understand these people's perspective about the gravity of the situation. 

4. At the end, when Burgess and Anderton confront each other, after Anderton shows the vision of Burgess committing the murder, Burgess runs into an impasse. He either kills Anderton, and goes to jail for life or does not kill him and the PreCrime division would be shut down. Burgess then explains that if one knows his or her future or "destiny" then he or she can change it. So in Minority Report and Oedipus, Oedipus knows what his fate will be, and does everything in his power to prevent it, and similarly the PreCrime division wants to know exactly what will happen, when and where, so they can stop it to help the greater good. Where they differ is that Oedipus wants to know his fate for his own good and sanity, while PreCrime wants to help out the world by putting criminals in jail before they can do harmful things.

5. The PreCogs: They are the actual ones who can see into the future, so their eyes represent, seeing into the future quite literally. They have the ability to see every event in the future before it happens, and they are the ones who are the key to PreCrime's success. John Anderton: His eyes are like the link between the PreCogs and real life. He cannot see into the future, but he acts out and stops events before they happen. He sees what will happen, then acts upon those visions and stops the crime. The culture: Society at this point seems to value eyes, because it has unquestionably made the area a safer place, evidence by the six year without crime.

6. Technology is advancing faster than anyone could of predicted. We've made mobile computers, electric cars, glasses with phones, etc. We've advanced in so many areas that many thought would take decades, like bending light to make items essentially invisible, cloning, guns, computers etc. Now a days, the things portrayed in the movie are not too far off, no longer are we making films about this crazy future that lies ahead, because most know that anything within the realm of possibilities could be reached by humans. In 44 years, I expect us to still be growing exponentially, and where we will have too many people with too few resources. And if we continue at this rate within the next 100 years or so, we will become extinct, or by 44 years we will have some sort of cataclysmic event that will drastically wipes out the population, because the human population always seems to have some sort of mass death event when we have a problem with population i.e. Black Death. Yet, on the bright side, seemingly after a massive event like a plague, comes a period of great innovation and culture i.e. Italian Renaissance. So in 44 years, I fully expect us all to be flying with cars, and taking trains that are as fast at light, but with the presence of a mass death lurking or starting already.
