  • Battle Of The Bastards Analysis

    and we go to Jon’s war tent, where the good stones (Stark markers) are clearly outnumbered by the bad stones (Boltons). The battle lines are drawn in very straight lines, and this is symbolic of the linear thinking of the male protagonists. Go forward, hit things, hope to win. Sansa is – rightfully – pissed off at her half-brother over his lack of creativity. For someone who is supposed to be some sort of great strategic thinker, he seems at a total loss here. The planning does lead to one moment of humor, as he tried to explain to Tormund how they’ll fight differently than the battle north of the Wall. He tells his wildling major domo that they won’t be caught in a “double-envelopment” as Stannis did to the wildlings. Tormund just stares at him. “They won’t be able to flank us,” Jon essays again, to Tormund’s continued blank stare. “The won’t be able to attack us from the sides,” Jon tries once more. “Good,” Tormund says.

So after Tormund and Davos leave (and go outside to make some jokes about drinking and crapping themselves before battle), Sansa lays into her brother. She is, after all, the only Stark in the room, and more importantly, the only one…

  • The Fox In The Museum Of Art

    While art in general or attending art museums doesn’t really interest me, especially having to attend on my much needed day of rest from work and school. For my creative personal response paper, I chose to attend the Dallas Museum of Art this past Sunday. I came across numerous works of art. From paintings to sculptures, and drawings.
