Yes, I know my conclusion here should get a “duh” reaction… but I was really trying to be thoughtful about movie conventions and symbolism and what I really think it boils down to.
Also… I’m starting out sarcastic, so just… yeah… don’t think I really mean some of the things I’m saying, okay? Good deal.
Greetings one and everyone.
Today, I want to share with you the most important thing I learned this weekend.
That important thing is this: how will you know Satan is attacking you? This is a worthy query, and one that can be tricky to answer if you don’t know the facts. So often people say that Satan is subtle in his attacks and that just isn’t true. If Satan is after you, it’ll be pretty obvious.
“How can this be?”, you might ask. Well, I shall tell you! When Satan is threatening you, he will be absolutely recognizable. How can you recognize him? Why, he will always come in the form of a black canine, of course! Or his minions will. The forces of evil are all black canines…
Now, you may wonder how can I make such an outrageous claim. Normally, I would wonder this as well, but I will truthfully tell you how I came to this conclusion and all will become clear to you. You will realize that my observations are reasonable and my conclusion is flawless, and then you will also become wary of all doggies in the black variety.
See, I watched some “scary” movies over the weekend. At my sister’s Halloween get-together, we watched “The Omen” (the new one, I think… with Dumbledore 2 and Professor Lupin), and we watched “Fear of the Dark” with its wrestling-costumed monsters, and we watched… what was it? Umm… oh yes: “An American Haunting”.
Now, in each of these movies, Satan and the forces of evil (even the not-overtly-Satanic ones) manifest themselves as black wolfies and doggies.
In “The Omen” a girl kills herself after seeing this black dog. The movie makes you think that maybe the dog is Satan, since the evil little boy (who is Satan’s son) waves to it, etc. Then there are numerous Rottweilers that attack the protagonist and try to prevent him from dispatching said evil child… and therefore, we can know that Rottweilers are Satan’s minions, and that Satan looks like a black collie/German shepherd dog. What further proofs need we that black canines are enemies to all that is good and holy? I mean, Satan himself is a black dog!
Well, in “An American Haunting”, a mysterious black wolf seems to be the embodiment of a demon who is after a little girl. Or, he may be a witch’s familiar, sent to harass the girl’s family. Dun-dun-dun! So, even back in old-timey days (the story is set in the 1800’s), Satan’s minions took on the forms of black canine beasties. I suppose that means we should always have been suspicious of black dogs, since they came to us from wolves… and all wolves are evil in stories anyway, even when they aren’t black… but when they ARE black—woah! Serious evil!
Then, in “Fear of the Dark”, there are spectral Doberman Pinchers that attack a girl who is trying to help her friends rationalize away the scary night creatures. Therefore… we know that the “night creatures” are really Satan’s minions, since they have his black dogs helping them.
Or… perhaps… the dogs are just his minions. Maybe Satan was the wolf as well. Maybe… yes, that makes sense… maybe Satan travels by himself as a black wolf. That shepherd dog in “The Omen” looked wolfish. Maybe Satan just got his fur done in an updated style to make him seem a little more doglike… hmm…
Yes, so Satan is a black wolf/dog with pointed ears, and his minions—when in canine form—are invariably the type of dogs that are black with brown legs and muzzles. And they travel in twos… for… backup, I guess. In care the fluffy white dogs of heaven show up to fight. Or something like that.
You know, maybe in Harry Potter, they’re on to something with the idea of the Grim. Maybe the Grim is really Satan… I suppose seeing Satan would be a reasonable omen of death… and, you know, after seeing “The Secret Lives of Little Red Riding Hood” play at school, I wonder what colour the Wolf was. If he was black, maybe he really was Satan trying to eat Little Red! *gasp*
But seriously… I was kind of astonished to see that convention in three movies, right in a row.
It made me sad, too, because a few weeks ago I read a story somewhere about these people investigating why there are more black dogs in shelters than dogs of other colours. The researchers were speculating that it was because it’s harder for people to “read” the facial expressions of a dark coloured dog, and they feel intimidated instead of like they’re connecting with the animals. I think that’s sad. I’ve always liked black or spotted animals a lot… for a very very long time my favourite type of dog was a black lab.
I dunno… I know that symbolism and “real life” aren’t the same thing… but I think they have real effects on each other. Obviously black is the colour of nighttime, which was and is a dangerous time to be out alone, and wolves were—back in the day, at least—some of the most dangerous creatures around in Europe and then in North America. So it only makes sense that black things and darkness got to be associated with danger and ultimately with evil and Satan… and then that wolves got to be associated with these same things—after all, wolves hunt at night, and since there weren’t really any lions to speak of in Europe, Satan had to be a snarling wolf instead of a roaring lion…
I don’t know… I just… I think that these same ideas are still alive and well in some respects.
You shouldn’t be out after dark without safety precautions. That’s about the only one of these ideas I really, really concur with. As for the others…
Black is still associated with all things evil and/or negative. Just look at how the emo and goth style individuals portray themselves, and then how others take that in. I don’t notice it as much in college, but I definitely noticed a reaction from people when I was in high school and started wearing black… and that was even outside of my small Christian schools and Church. It was… kind of a suspicious reaction, I guess. A suspicious reaction to the colour of my clothes. How strange.
Then there’s the whole dog thing. People can’t connect with black dogs, apparently, and so more black dogs don’t get adopted and end up put to sleep. Especially if they’re labeled as an “aggressive” breed. Notice the breeds I described above: German shepherds, Dobermans, Rottweilers… these breeds are seen as aggressive, and Dobermans and Rottweilers also have the misfortune of coming in mostly black… which apparently reinforces their aggression in our minds, etc. It just goes on.
One of these days I think I’ll get a dog. I’ll try and keep this in mind so that if I stop by a shelter, I’ll make a special effort to consider the black dogs. I know they’re not evil. They’re not Satanic.
And as far as the real Satan goes… I think that the one thing to keep in mind is that really, he does work in a way that’s more like “The Omen”. He could come after you as a black wolf, but he is equally likely to come after you in a way that seems just as innocent as that little boy in the movie.
Brent Small: Ooh, that is really radiant.
Matt Downey: Yeah, it really is. It looks like snow.

Their half-digested lunches.
8. Have you ever told someone of the opposite/same sex you loved them?
Yes. Unless that slash is denoting said person as being both things at once… I have not said any such thing to a person like that, which is good because I have my doubts about their existence.

Reeser: It’s okay though because I can just keep sitting around and doing nothing… which is also fun.
Wesley Blackburn: Very good pastime. It’s a hobby of mine.
Reeser: You know, I’d say we should start a club… only if we went to club meetings it would prevent us from doing nothing.
Wesley: Yeah. That’s an interesting irony.
School, followed by NYC. Read on.
Took the exam early. I am a little sketchy on what my grade will be… not full points, but not horrible either, I hope. I am discovering that I have a knack for finding and studying things that are SO close to what I’m supposed to know, but just aren’t quite what I needed to know…
I did not get to class… I had other pressing issues.
In case you hadn’t heard, WXCU is Capital University’s student radio station. This past Thursday we went to the CMJ Awards in NYC, where WXCU was voted “best student-run internet only radio station”. It was very exciting! You should check us out at wxcuradio.com.
Yeah. Approximately the same thing as geology.
Electronic Media Writing
Mmm… I gotta do some assignments for class, since I wasn’t there Thursday.
I did get some good ideas for image drops while I was in NY. Hopefully they’ll turn out nicely.
Now for the non-school portion…
I am SO MAD! On the way there, I got my bag taken away because it had a large metal piece on it that I could apparently use as weaponry. Badness ensued and we had to put it back in Brent’s van and I was stuck with a plastic shopping bag as my carry-on.
On the way back, I lost my cell phone. We’ve called and checked with everyone who is in charge of lost and founds for Delta and for the two airports… and it’s nowhere to be found. This is horrible.
Bags: Since I didn’t have a bag Wednesday when we arrived in NYC, I left my wallet in the hotel room because I didn’t want to be pick pocketed. Unfortunately, we never went back to the hotel, so I was without spending money all day, and that turned out to be the day we were going to use for souvenirs. I was SO disappointed. At least I got a lot of free stuff at the conference.
On the other hand:
- I did not get sick like other people did, so I was glad… although I felt bad that others of our group did get sick.
- I also got to take a shower this morning, which I was happy about, since we had to be ready to leave the hotel by 6 this morning.
- I even had a fairly good song stuck in my head all the last few days… and I could even remember most of the words, so that made it much more enjoyable and less annoying than it would otherwise be.
- Columbus smells SOOOOOOOO much better than New York. I will NOT miss those subways, especially…
- It didn’t rain.
- Wednesday dinner was awesome… even if I couldn’t finish it and was actually glad when I dropped my knife and didn’t get a new one.
- I did get to see Times Square at night, which is pretty cool and colourful, even if I didn’t have any money.
- I got to see the Statue of Liberty, which was kind of cool… although I have to admit, I was more focused on the boats and the moon and the way the light was shining through the clouds… you know, typical things that distract me.
- Some people gave us free tea. It was okay, although I admit I’m not a tea-drinker. I was just glad to have something to drink because I kept coughing.
- I did not die from all the bacteria-laden surfaces.
- I had fun toting our award poster through the subway system and the airport.
- I did not get stuck outside the subway like some of our group… their passes wouldn’t work for some reason and they had to get new ones.
- The sink at the hotel was actually inside the bathroom instead of outside… that always gets on my nerves when hotels do that.
- I had dollar bills that the hotel vending machine actually accepted. That made me so happy. You have no idea…
Anyway, so in the end I came back with nothing that I bought and no pictures (I’ll get pictures from Emily and Larryn), and my clothes that I wore smell like New York nastyness—the pants that I’m wearing now, yeah… I wore them yesterday, so they do not smell nice either—but there was a lot more that I am actually kind of glad about. Especially the fact that WE WON AN AWARD!
Yay and yayness!
“Refuge went pretty well today considering I fell asleep last night in the middle of preparing for it. But it was all right because… I talked hypocrisy.”
Hey kids. I am going to New York tomorrow morning and I’ll be back Friday morning. Hope things will be tons of fun at CMJ and wherever else we go gallivanting off to.
Wow… I just left clicked “gallivanting” and found a synonymous expression that I have never heard of. “Paint the town red?” I have never heard of that phrase in my life… oh well. Microsoft Word can apparently teach me new things… I guess.
Anyway, pray for us and our trip. And have fun with this survey wherein we thoroughly abuse the word “honestly”. Yay and yayness.
…and yes, I admit it. I don’t listen to very many bands/artists outside the Christian market, but… I like that band. So there. Sue me.

Honestly? No… I don’t think I ever have.
29. Honestly, do you still cry when you get an injury?

To be blunt… no.
33. Honestly, what can make you happy?

Yes, I honestly do.
37. Honestly, is cheating ever acceptable?
Honestly… no. Never.

“Yeah, I think your goth look is pretty awesome, and still know you’re a strong Christian… if I were to describe you, it would be a cliché… ‘Don’t judge a book by its cover’.”
Oh yay… soil and water and other stuff… I feel like I’m watching The Last Air-Bender sometimes, only that it’s exceptionally less entertaining.
I have to go study for the exam, too.
I have to go talk to my mom about preparing answers for interview questions…. I’m going to be so bad at this. I don’t know where I will be in 5, 10, or 20 years. How could a company expect me to answer that? I can’t deal with long-term future questions very well because the future is so unpredictable… I’m not going to try and say “well, in five years I’ll be here or there, doing this,” if I can’t be sure of it.
I’m excited for CMJ… but I’m also getting sick now, too. That’s not cool.
I missed class all week… also, I have not been doing readings… I need to catch up fast and all so that I can get through the exam in this class, too.
Electronic Media Writing
Missed class on Tuesday, but I didn’t stay on Thursday either because they were taking a quiz and our prof said I could take it this next Tuesday, since I hadn’t known about it. Yay me.
Took another test… it wasn’t too hard. I also made my 60 second practice recording… and since I couldn’t think of anything brilliant to make it about, it was 60 seconds of me talking about cotton candy. It sounded funny with my music clip from Queen… heh, oh well.
Anyway, I hope I’ll start feeling better soon because I CAN’T skip out on any classes this next week, and because I don’t want to be sick for CMJ. That would be horrible.
I have so much work to do…
Melody: *sing to follow the yellow brick road* We’re… out to get the Mafia! The wonderful mafia in Ohio!! ^_^ We hear it is the meanest badest… mafia in the world… I won’t hurt myself… ^_^
Reeser: I formally applied for admission to the Mafia in my church the other day.
Melody: Coolies!! Good luck getting in!!
Reeser: It was fun… written in code and all.
The Little Red Riding Hood play was quite good.
I’m excited about New York and CMJ next week… not so excited about the two exams that I have to take early so I can be free to go though!
WXCU, my shift went quite well. I am awesome and so is the music. You should listen. My show is called “Screams in the Night”. It’s Christian Metal and it plays from 5-7PM, EST on Fridays. Check out wxcuradio.com.
Rex is the best. Anyone who I can call early in the morning and ask to turn my paper in for me because I have to miss class or risk a mental overload… they deserve to have cookies made for them or something. I didn’t make Rex any cookies, but I should have.
On the other hand… I’d like to throttle the next student that I hear tell a professor that “I don’t have my paper done because of X, Y, or Z”. I work so hard to get stuff in on time, and I don’t see why they can’t do it too.
RadioU is awesome because they played Five Iron Frenzy while Chris & I were oj the way home… it was an awesome thing. I love FIF. I called in and told them that it was because of that song, actually (Suckerpunch) that I ended up getting into this whole “Christian” thing and starting a relationship with Christ. It’s been hard lately, but definitely the best thing that ever has happened to me.
They let me talk a little on the air about that… and I love RadioU. I hope they get their funds raised to keep the station up.
Also Chris and I had tons of fun going to White Castle… we had to do a sort of “Chinese fire drill” to get my money because my bad was in the trunk.,. good times though.
And we had fun doing little dances to the electronic music RadioU started playing… while we were in the drive through. You would have to have been there.
Then… heeheehee… I think I’d been awake for too long, so somehow the myth of Hyacinthus came up again… I think I was using the story to illustrate to Chris why he did NOT want to order sliders, since he wasn’t feeling well.
I figured he would end up being very unhappy if he got them, just like Hyacinthus was probably pretty unhappy when he cracked his head open. I guess I’m just lucky that Chris listens to me : P
I’m so tired. It was a good Friday, though.
With a colour of black you would not be blessed
In a church that decides on colour and puts a price
On a paradise…
