That was great! It started the clock crew!!!
This film is truly a masterpiece; Strawberry Clock must have endured long hours thinking up how to convey all the joy, sorrow, and chaos that is in the world. A red, capital B, slightly off center in a background of nothingness. Using a simplistic syntax in his allegorical story, Strawberry Clock accurately conveys the tumultuous nature of everyday life.
There is only one paragraph; one sentence; one letter to this piece. Just a B- nothing more, nothing less. This choice of diction seems rudimentary to the untrained eye; however, it is quite the opposite. The B was meant to be simple, and yet so complex; it can mean anything to anyone. B; believe. B; bewilder. B; begrudge. B; befriend. B; because.
In addition to this, Strawberry Clock the characters and setting in "B" as a running metaphor. The antagonist in the tale, B represents us all. Whether we are young or old, rich or poor, strong or weak. B becomes us. In the first scene of "B", B strives to be in the center, but isn't quite there. Parallel to us, B is so close to where he wants to be, but can never make it. However, B tries to be happy where he is. He holds fast, and strong; his vibrant crimson armor glistening in the midday sun. The color of B represents the love we have for ourselves, and that we should have for the world we live in; no matter what we come across- even if we are in the direst of situations, like B. B is trapped in an endless opening, yet it is so small, so lonely. B's disconcern for this situation shows what we as people are capable of. When we are alone, we come to truly understand ourselves; we come to realize that we exist. These parallels can be slightly modified for every individual, and that is where the story derives its power from.
These elements bring about a realization of what the meaning of existance is to everyone who takes the time to see them. Whether you wield the lollipop or the spear; whether you shine blue, green, or red; B is tells the story of you. The epitome of all flash, there truly is no other tale such as B. And it is highly likely that there never will be again.
My life... is complete.
B is the secret of life. B completes us. We are B. B is us.
This is why you are king, strawberry!
You have to love it!
If CtrawberryClock had submitted this in this day and age, I'm pretty sure it would be considered the number one flash on this website.
