Carrie -- the annihilator


I'm hoping this will go through so you all can get my insight, which is minimal from lack of sleep. Yet, I still think it's semi-helpful. At least I hope it is.

The whole Snow White scenario:
Everyone knows the story...blah blah blah. Think of it this way:
we = snow white
them = dwarves
[When Snow White was poisoned, she was put in a deep sleep.] We've been in a "deep sleep" since we watched LOTMS 8,235+ times / they ended their tour and went into hiding to write their new album.
[The dwarves were there to give service to and watch over Snow White] The only thing I can think of for this is they are giving us their new album (come October 24) but I don't have anything traveling through my brain that links it to TBP.

Now on to what Black represents and what Parades can also be called..

Representation #1:
Black is the color of authority and power. It is popular in fashion because it makes people appear thinner. It is also stylish and timeless. Black also implies submission. Priests wear black to signify submission to God. Some fashion experts say a woman wearing black implies submission to men. Black outfits can also be overpowering, or make the wearer seem aloof or evil. Villains, such as Dracula, often wear black.
Representation #2:
Black is associated with power, elegance, formality, death, evil, and mystery.
Black is a mysterious color associated with fear and the unknown (black holes). It usually has a negative connotation (blacklist, black humor, 'black death'). Black denotes strength and authority; it is considered to be a very formal, elegant, and prestigious color (black tie, black Mercedes). In heraldry, black is the symbol of grief.

My Representation:
If you think about this logically, black is actually the presence of all color. Acting as the complete opposite of Black is White. Now, excuse me while I go off on the color White for a moment. White actually isn’t a color either, but it’s the absence of all color. It represents purity. White has the power to lead to any color, which shows to go to new beginnings – it provides clarity. While white clarifies, Black conceals. Black gives off the vibe of something being unknown/unseen. (So, perhaps that bit about it staring us in the face isn’t all true.) To think of this positively, it can be portrayed as a peaceful oblivion where anything can come from it. In every “meaning” of the color black you look up, it states that it is associated with mystery. Its mystery provides possibility. [Something with potential].
Parade – a visible display
Procession, pageant, display, march past, carnival, spectacle, line, show off, festival, celebration, cavalcade, demonstration
conceal, hide
Basically meaning: TBP – concealed, unknown, can be anything, and obviously has potential.

AKA: I got nothing.

&PS – If black is mysterious and conceals, yet a parade is a visible display – aren’t they contradicting themselves?
