Advanced Thanatology 13x05 - the Passion of Dean and Cas

I haven’t seen these shots giffed yet - these lovely symbolic shots of Dean driving through fields of wheat at night to his reunion with Cas.

Of course, Cas was resurrected in a field of wheat and bramble (thorns) in 13x04 The Big Empty

As so often, Cas is tied to Christ imagery here. This is, after all, his fourth miraculous resurrection (previously having been smote by Chuck’s archangel, smote by Lucifer, and consumed in a lake whilst choc-full of Leviathan). 

The Parable of the Grain of Wheat, told by Jesus in John 12 24-26 (King James Bible) is (thanks Wikipedia) an allegory on resurrection, sacrifice and ego-death:

“Verily, verily, I say unto you, еxcept a grain of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone: but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit. He that loveth his life shall lose it; and he that hateth his life in this world shall keep it unto life eternal.”

In other words, old patterns of thinking and being must be shed in order that one may be reborn (in Christ). 

Both Cas AND Dean die and are resurrected prior to their reunion. We have already had Buddy, the shape-shifter and toxic dudebro, peeling off his Dean-mask in “The Big Empty”, so all the symbolism is there - a transformation for Dean and Cas, as they are reborn and reunite after the pain of separation.

(NB - which doesn’t mean their love story will shift from the sub-textual level - I think it will probably remain there). 

Cas returns to the world because he loves the Winchesters Dean, and Dean dies because, with Cas dead, he doesn’t have the heart to keep on living (it’s Billie’s decision that he should). 

The bramble, by the way, in Cas’ resurrection field in 13x04, stands for the Crown of Thorns.  One of the instruments of the Passion of Christ, also a symbol of death and resurrection. 

Incidentally, Dean is depicted with a whip in 13x05, when he’s passed out after his trying-to-forget-Cas-is-dead night at the Clam Dive. The whip, used to give Jesus the 39 lashes, is another of the instruments of the Passion.

So in subtext, we are talking about another kind of passion - the eros to the thanatos of the title. 

 Back to beautiful pre-reunion shots.  

Here is Baby cruising down some lonely street to the phone box and the reunion:

 Look at that blue cross (the colour of grace). 

Advanced Thanatology indeed - Dean and Cas are reunited, once again, beyond the grave. 

Cas has also had to live through Dean’s death (in 9x23 Do You Believe in Miracles):

Just as Dean has had to live through Cas’ death (most recently) in 12x23:

Each stabbed through the heart by an angel blade - another deliberate symmetry.

Advanced Thanatology was a lovely episode from Yockey, in terms of its narration of the eternally unspoken passion of Dean Winchester and Castiel

Dr Warhol’s Periodic Table of Microbes, The Small Guide to Small Things

93.  Np. Neptunomonas

You can’t look at Neptunomonas and not think about King Neptune, SpongeBob SquarePants, and the great voicing done by John O’Hurley and Jeffrey Tambor. Well, maybe you can, but I can’t. From the name, you can tell that Neptunomonas is a marine organism, and at the moment there are 7 recognized species.

As you know by now, recurring themes in this Periodic Table are that 1) Microbes are tougher than you; 2) Microbes can live anywhere. Neptunomonas is no exception, as it was first discovered in a highly toxic superfund site in Puget Sound happily munching away amid creosote and coal tar contaminated soil and sediment. Creosote is a tarry preservative that gives old-fashioned fishing piers their characteristic scent, in addition to cut bait. More essential trivia is that the general manager of the creosote company went down on the Titanic, and that their treated timbers were used in building the Panama Canal.

The type species (Neptunomonas napthovorans) was first noted to consume naphthalene, the white crystalline solid better known as the stinky stuff in moth balls. Think about that, these microbes eat moth balls. Other species have been isolated in Antarctica (Neptunomonas antarctica), a dead ark clam in South Korea (Neptunomonas concharum) (OK, ark clams are cool because one species has hemoglobin and red blood, unlike other clams), and as a symbiotic microbe (Neptunomonas japonicus) of the tube worm Osedax japonicus that was living on or near the carcass of a dead sperm whale, all of which were unknown until 2006. The symbiotic microbes enable the worms to eat whale bones. And if that’s not strange enough, yet another species (Neptunomonas phycophila) is a triple symbiont, as it is a symbiont of an algal symbiont (Symbiodinium) of the sea anemone (Aiptasia tagetes).

Neptunomonas cells are Gram negative rods typically measuring around 0.7 to 0.9 microns wide by 2 to 3 microns long.

Everlasting Dragon Ecstatic to Receive Recognition for His amazing Covenant.

The Everlasting Dragon has won yet again the Best Covenant Award for Lordran. He was overcome with emotion as he gave himself the trophy. 

“The panel of judges did an amazing job yet again!” said the Everlasting Dragon.

The judges panel consisted of the Everlasting Dragon, a dead clam with a smiley face sharpie’d on, and a sock puppet on the dragon’s right hand.

The Everlasting Dragon accepted the trophy in front of a roaring crowd consisting of sand, some decapitated Hydra heads, and a confused Undead who accidentally wandered into Ash Lake.

The Dragon thanked all the inanimate objects around him for the magnificent reward and soon was left alone talking to his sock puppet.

A spooky #SeaweedSunday!

In honor of Halloween, this week’s Seaweed Sunday is focused on the notorious Dead Man’s Fingers (Codium fragile). A species of green algae in native to Monterey,  it can also be found on rocky coasts from Alaska to Baja and in the Sea of Japan. 

This algae has become an invasive species in other parts of the world, extending its range to many locations including Australia, Europe, Antarctica, and the east coast of North America. Like a green, photosynthetic monster from a horror movie, the Dead Man’s Fingers successfully invade other habitats by growing in high densities—even in low-light conditions. By creating a dense, shaded area the Dead Man’s Fingers can prevent native algal species from photosynthesizing, thus eliminating any competition.

 This algae has also been known to cause trouble for shellfish farmers. Dead Man’s Fingers can grow on the shells of bivalves such as clams and mussels, increasing the drag on these animals. Unfortunately, this also increases the chance that the shellfish will be carried away from the farms by the current pulling at the Dead Man’s Fingers. Shellfish farmers have named Dead Man’s Fingers the “oyster thief” since the algae is known to carry away their shelled animals. 

Who knew an algae could be so villainous? Fortunately for us, the Dead Man’s Fingers is a native species to our coast; so not very tricky, but a treat to have in our backyard.

BECAUSE OLIVER AND IS HAPPY WITH THE LOVE OF HIS LIFE FELICITY AND HE IS GOING TO PROPOSE THAT NIGHT EVEN THOUGH SHE HAS FAILED THIS OMELETTE BECAUSE HE LOVES HER SO DANG MUCH AND WOULD DO ANYTHING FOR THIS SWEET MUNCHKIN CINNAMON ROLL.

When I was 3 I went to Florida with my mom and I kept findin clams in the sand and putting them in my pocket and naming them and I didn’t know they’d die I just thought they were my pet clams and after a few days my mom was like “Belinda why do you smell like a fish market” and I said “it’s my pet clams” and opened my suitcase to reveal 40+ dead clams
