"Life and death, energy and peace. If I stop today it was still worth it. Even the terrible mistakes that I made and would have unmade if I could. The pains that have burned me and scarred my soul, it was worth it, for having been allowed to walk where I've walked, which was to hell on earth, heaven on earth, back again, into, under, far in between, through it, in it, and above."~Gia Carangi
Memory is a selection of images. Some elusive, others printed indelibly on the brain. Each image is like a thread. Each thread woven together to make a tapestry of intricate texture and the tapestry tells a story and the story is our past. ~From "Eve's Bayou"
"The soul is a veiled light. Neglect it, and it will dim and die,, fuel it with the sacred oil of love, and it will burn with an immortal flame. (Sung at the temples of Amun-Ra)" ~ From the cover of Andreas Vollenweider's "White Winds"
"By any means necessary"~ Malcolm X

IF YOU LIKE ELEANOR, YOU'RE GONNA WANNA LEAVE. PLEASE DO SO, THANK YOU.
Denotation: Tebow and “Tebow Mania” are at the forefront.
Connotation:Tebow is a controversial figure with lots of notoriety, whether you watch sports or not.
Denotation: A Jockey underwear ad
Connotation:It’s in ESPN magazine so Tebow is perfect because he’s an NFL quarterback.
Denotation:Men, football fans, Tim Tebow fans (women heavily included)
Connotation: Mostly men because football and ESPN are associated with men and Jockey underwear, in this case, is being aimed at men, especially football fans. But also, because it’s an underwear ad featuring Tebow, it’s also aimed at women who are/aren’t sports fans.
Denotation: As a Tebow fan, the faith in him as a leader, in his team, in his ability to win, pride in his success; counter-emotions could be passive indifference, hostility, hatred, Jockey is an underwear company and Tebow has plenty of fans who find him attractive so the sell of sex is always there
If you are a fan, then seeing him play is a great thing for you because you believe in his, you believe in what he can do on the field and believe in the person he is off the field too.
Connotation: If you aren’t, you’re generally either indifferent towards him or, for one reason or another (generally things to do with the mechanics of his playing or just plain hatred) especially when it comes to his openness about his faith (cue the “tebowing”) then it’s annoying or disgusting to have to see it.
Denotation:All the words are in caps. the “4th Quarter Down by 10. It’s Tebow Time ” is the biggest feature of the first page. It’s in gray. The “you’re gonna need to change your Jockeys” is smaller and in white. The second page of the ad is simply Tebow’s shadowed face, his eye most prominent.
Connotation:The words, “4th Quarter Down by 10. It’s Tebow Time ” are meant to draw you in because he’s known as the comeback kid (or specially for his “Tebow Miracle”, “Miracle at Mile High” or “Tebow Time”) and you know, watching his game, you have an exciting time on your hands when they’re trailing in the fourth quarter (or in overtime). The “you’re gonna need to change your Jockeys” is smaller because, while it’s making a statement of being on the edge of your seat hoping for a “Miracle at Mile High” it’s also trying to get you interested in the underwear itself, with the perception that the underwear is just as good as Tebow.
Denotation:The ad is split into two pages, side by side: the first is the text, second a picture of Tebow’s face.
Connotation: Though you’re probably going to end up seeing Tebow’s face first, the words are still powerful because they describe his playing style.
Denotation: “4th Quarter. Down by 10. It’s Tebow Time. You’re gonna need to change your Jockeys”
Connotation: Tebow is famous (or infamous) for coming back during the fourth quarter of a game, usually going into overtime and it coming down to field goal. It’s generally nail biting for a true fan because you’re on the edge of your seat, praying for a “Miracle and Mile High”.
Denotation: Positive if you’re a fan, negative if you’re not, and indifferent if you don’t particularly care.
Connotation: If you’re a fan then it’s positive, seeing someone you like being the face a company that you possibly like already or if not, trying to get you to like because Tebow is representing them (similarly with his ad for FRS Healthy Performance Products).
I don’t care what anybody says. Timmy took his team to postseason for this first time since 2005. He turned the season, team, and fans around. I’m with him until the very end. The haters can say what they want. Win or lose, I’m ALWAYS a Tim Tebow fan.
*insert PREACH gif*
Haters, what were y’all sayin?! IT’S TEBOW TIME!!!!!!!!!!!
