Death…

January 31, 2008

When all usefulness is over, when one is assured of an unavoidable and imminent death, it is the simplest of human rights to choose a quick and easy death in the place of a slow and horrible one.

-Charlotte Perkins Gilman

Because I love SAGO!!!

Bale 1986 noong una kong nakilala si batman wala pang abs-cbn noon sa BBC-2 pa noon eh panahon ni Marcos na malapit nang mamatay wala rin si kris aquino wala pa si boy abunda sikat pa si herman moreno noon eh sabi ko, “shet ang galing nito ah” natulala ako noong una kong napanood si batman “shet ang galing nito” sabi ko sa sarili ko “ang galing galing galing ng itsura ni batman” parang kinatam ang mukha ang galing ng costume umuumbok ang dibdib pero di pa rin bakat ang utong ang galing ng gadgets niya ang gara ng kotse ang ganda ng bahay ang galing-galing mag-Ingles ang galing mangarate actually, pulbos nga ang lahat ng kalaban niya eh palagi ko siyang pinapanood tuwing hapon palagi akong nakikipag-away sa katulong namin dahil gusto nya manood ng lotlot and friend at saka thats entertainment pero ako isa lang talaga ang gusto kong panoorin sabi idol na idol n idol n talaga kita

I Love Kara David

January 30, 2008

Because she is such a great documentary filmmaker. And I have watched the one she did called Selda Inocente, which is about Filipina inmates who have their kids with them inside the bilibid. I don’t exctaly know what to say about the film. All that is running in my twisted head right now is that the Filipino society suck because things like this happens.

Because I’ve been listening to my favorite band once again. At ito ang paulit-ulit na kinakanta ko…

St. Anger

St. Anger ’round my neck
St. Anger ’round my neck
He never gets respect
St. Anger ’round my neck

You flush it out, you flush it out
St. Anger ’round my neck
He never gets respect
You flush it out, you flush it out
St. Anger ’round my neck
You flush it out, you flush it out
He never gets respect

Fuck it all and no regrets
I hit the lights on these dark sets
I need a voice to let myself
To let myself go free
Fuck it all and fuckin’ no regrets
I hit the lights on these dark sets
Medallion noose, I hang myself
St. Anger ’round my neck

I feel my world shake
Like an earth quake
It’s hard to see clear
Is it me? Is it fear?

I’m madly in anger with you

And I want my anger to be healthy
And I want my anger just for me
And I need my anger not to control
And I want my anger to be me

And I need to set my anger free

Set it free

Not Only in the Philippines

January 29, 2008

I’ve recently watched this documentary called War on Democracy. It was about the struggle of many Latin American countries against poverty and inequality, brought about the ruling class and of course, the all-so-mighty United States. And I was never able to stop thinking how odd it is that such rich countries can be so poor at the same time. Venezuela for example is one of the countries with the biggest oil reserve in the world, and yet only a few people benefit from it. In that country, just like in any country especially in the Philippines, the rich get richer and the poor gets poorer. The movie was so touching that I think it’s my responsibility to tell people to watch it also and learn from it. So go ahead, watch War on Democracy. I don’t care where you’ll get the copy. Try torrents or P2P sites. Just download it and watch the damn thing.

Here’s the trailer of that docu film…

War on Democracy

Directed by: John Pilger

I’ve been wanting to post this song here because I just love the band. Kaso nakakalimutan ko. So ngayon, dahil naalala ko, eto na…

No One Knows

We get some rules to follow
That and this
These and those
No one knows

We get these pills to swallow
How they stick
In your throat
Tastes like gold

Oh, what you do to me
No one knows

And I realize you’re mine
Indeed a fool of mine
And I realize you’re mine
Indeed a fool of mine
Ahh

I journey through the desert
Of the mind
With no hope
I found low

I drift along the ocean
Dead lifeboats in the sun
And come undone

Pleasently caving in
I come undone

And I realize you’re mine
Indeed a fool of mine
And I realize you’re mine
Indeed a fool and mine
Ahhh

Heaven smiles above me
What a gift there below
But no one knows

A gift that you give to me
No one knows

…because you manage to do and say things like what you did and said last Saturday. And I completely agree,

I’m sure of you, I’m sure of us.
