for my love of kuzco
Just because someone’s parents are together, someone has a nice house, has nice clothes, isn’t poor, eats every day and has a loving family doesn’t mean they can’t be depressed, have anxiety, an eating disorder, self harm issues, or any other problem.
Alright, let’s analyze this shall we?
- It is all of their faces combined (possibly Matt/Bob’s too?) to show how it is about the band and not any one person.
- The Roman numerals are for 2013. More emphasis on the death date of the band besides the title.
- There is a crumpled up picture of the band at the bottom of the tombstone. An image taken from the Bullets era.
- It looks like a can of red spray paint beside it as well. Assumedly spray paint given that there is faded red on the tombstone. The red could be symbolic of Revenge era as well.
- The red words read “We all go to hell” (Obviously “Mama” will be on this album-but it’s also another allusion to death)
- It is obviously in a California graveyard as there are palm trees and pine trees growing near each other, which is common of California. This is symbolic of Danger days.
- Revenge era is present in the whole premise of the tombstones and cross in the background.
Beyond the allusions to their four albums there is symbolism to be had as well:
- The tombstone is severed and broken. Time has weathered it away quite a bit.
- The tombstone is also the only stone facing in this direction. Symbolic of how they never followed the prescribed regiment that bands usually do. They were different and went against the current.
- The remnants around the tombstone (the crumpled image, the can, the flowers) are meant to show how only a few people have been near it in recent years, and even those have been few and far in-between.
- Stains. Again emphasizing the passage of time. Not only are there recent stains but there are layers and layers of these stains. Gathering from the other signs of age, one can estimate it’s about 50 years aged.
- The dreary sky and setting are obviously just meant to incorporate the natural sorrow of death.
- All of this would indicate that they are long forgotten and unimportant and at a complete end (emphasized by “the end”). HOWEVER. The title is “May Death Never Stop You” which redefines the symbolism of the image. The title indicates that the idea of the band thrives on and thusly, the band itself is forgotten, not the idea. The tombstone is disheveled because those that may visit it are too busy fueling the idea.
Puzzlewood Magical Forest — The Real Middle Earth
Puzzlewood is a unique and enchanting place, located in the beautiful and historic Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, England. There is more than a mile of meandering pathways through Puzzlewood and over 14 acres of ancient woodland. It has an atmosphere quite unlike any other wood. The magical forest is one of the most stunning in the world and it’s easy to see why it’s been used as a filming location for Merlin and Dr. Who. It is no wonder that JRR Tolkien is reputed to have taken his inspiration for the fabled forests of Middle Earth from Puzzlewood.
In Puzzlewood you will find strange rock formations, secret caves and ancient trees. The geological features here are known locally as scowles. The scowles originated through the erosion of natural underground cave systems formed in limestone many millions of years ago. Uplift and erosion caused the cave system to become exposed at the surface. This was then exploited by Iron Age settlers through to Roman times for the extraction of iron ore.
Evidence of Roman occupation of the area is supported by the discovery of a hoard of over 3,000 Roman coins from the 3rd Century which were found in the scowles of Puzzlewood. Once the Romans left, nature reclaimed the old workings with moss and trees, to create the unique landscape. The historical use soon became forgotten, and the folklore of “Puzzlewood” began.
In the early 1800s, a local landowner laid down a mile of pathways which meandered through the trees and gulleys to open up this ancient forest originally for the amusement of his friends and children. In the early 1900s, Puzzlewood opened to the public. Since then it is has remained essentially unchanged with the same stunning pathways and bridges as in earlier times, but with the addition of a variety of animals and visitor facilities.
It’d be easier to disappear
Why won’t you let me?
