Music Poetry (Citizen of the Planet) by Alanis Morisstette

Album name: Flavors of Entanglement 

Overall I like how Alanis makes this song about how she experiences the world and sings us about how she feels different being exposed to new culture one after another.

(little context this album which was made in 2008 is filled with a pop and rock/sad and anger like energy with songs like Citizen of the Planet, Straitjacket, Versions of Violence as the rock/anger segment and Not as we,Torch, Incomplete as the pop/sad segment of the album during her break up in engagement that lasted three years)

I think the central idea of this song is about how Alanis moves to America and explores what is different compared to Canada as she sang in one line, “Then I move across the sea  To European bliss  To language of poets  As I cut the cord of home I kiss my mother’s mother  Look to the horizon  Wide eyed, new ground  Humbled by my surroundings”  

Personification:  2:36 “Democracy’s kids are sovereign  Where the teachers are sages  And pedestals filled with every parent ”

The personification is that she is comparing people to control the government and compares teachers as leaders and wise she also compares parent’s as pedestals meaning that children look up to them and glorify them.

Imagery: 1:02 

“Then I fly back to my nest  I fly back with my nuclear.  But everything is different”

She gives the image of seeing how she feels different after coming back from America when she first left Canada.


alliteration:  0:38

“Then I move across the sea  To European bliss  To language of poets” 

She makes the alliteration of this because of poetry originating in Europe and from her having to move across Canada to Europe overseas. 

Reading Update: The Shining

The Shining is a book written by renowned horror author, Steven King. The book is about a man named Jack Torrence, a complicated man who is a retired alcoholic. He is looking after the Overlook Hotel as his last chance for a good job. He brings with him his wife Wendy and his son Danny. Jack has had a rough past with abuse, with him being abused by his father when he was a child and assaulting his son while he was drunk. He was also fired from his last job for assaulting another child for popping holes in Jack’s car. While Danny is at the hotel, he envisions many horrible things, even one entity strangling him. After a few months in the hotel, Jack starts having strange envisions as well, and starts to go insane.

I have not finished the book yet, but I am deeply invested in the story. I have watched the Stanley Kubrick film adaptation of “The Shining” and it has become one of my favorite movies of all time, which inspired me to read the novel written years before the 1980 film. However, the book differs from the film from small moments to a huge twist in the many plots. There is much more backstory in the book about Jack, Wendy, Danny, and even the hotel itself. There is also much more time for the book to flesh out the characters and what they are like than in the film, even though the novel might feel slow at some points. Overall, The Shining is an amazing book and I cannot wait to finish it.

Today, Tonight, Tomorrow

Today, Tonight, Tomorrow is a story about a girl named Rowan Roth and it’s her last day of senior year and during the three years of high school she has tried to win against her other classmate Neil McNair after losing against him in freshman year for a school wide contest.

After three years she has finally finished senior year and while she thinks everything is going good for she gets into a car accident with her ex-boyfriend and in the process spills coffee on her dress that she wore for the the announcements for valedictorian which while on stage she doesn’t end up getting valedictorian sadly. Overall this a very good book so far and I feel actually bad for Rowan hopefully things look up for her but anyways this book is definitely worthwhile, see you next time my little lovelies xoxo
