three films in the span of one week. i'd say i'm indie-fied.

endo by jade castro

first shot at cinemalaya. thank God for films like this and there are no sampalan moments. haha silence is better than the usual pinoy screaming and slapping. best part for me was when leo asked his gf candy, "ano pangarap mo?" it gave reference to how tanya was different to candy.

i agree with jace, the music was appropriate for every scene. even the cd player bridged the gap between the two characters, a barrier for leo and candy, and a communication symbol for his pregnant ex-gf. all objects were made for a purpose, and they served the purpose well.

the ending was quite unclear. when leo was standing in front of a gate and a woman came out, my first reaction was that the woman was leo's relative. it was unclear why tanya went home to the province before she boarded the ship. maybe it would've been better if they showed tanya riding the bus, then appearing at the gate when the woman checked to see who was standing in front of their house.

rating: 4 out of 5 tickets.

still life by katsky flores

sir ron rocks. the scene shots were pretty, it's like capturing a still life painting on film. good location too, everyone was commenting "wow, ganda ng location nila."

the twist at the end of the story shook my time frame. haha i had to backtrack and remember the scenes to be able to understand how the pieces fit together. nice touch in the twist of events, it really made the audience think.

best parts, all of sir ron's one-liners. "ang lapit kasi ng tubero sa pintor eh." trust doesn't come right away, it takes a clogged sink to warm up with a stranger.

soundtrack was a little bit iffy. the piano and guitar solos were nice, though they could've put more variations to it. more bases on the drama parts, or broken chords at the high notes for light moments. the movie dragged at the start, though it picked up in the middle. maybe it's just me over analyzing it, but my rationale for the slow start was that a painter feels that time is such a drag when you're uninspired.

oh lookie, ariel is there! and the moderator of entablado (forgot the name), is also a doctor in the film. wehehehe

rating: 3.75 out of 5

this evening, i watched a film by rahyan carlos. it was the product of the summer acting and film production workshop held by c-futures. rahyan carlos directed and wrote the play, while the workshoppers were the actors. they also got veteran actors for the big roles. karylle and lj reyes watched the film. mother lily was there daw. I SAW JOMS! JOMS! i miissshed you. sorry tinapon ko yung chips mo. harhar

ang parol sa aking burol by rahyan carlos

click this link for the trailer. the person who uploaded this disabled embedding. mwehehe.

the symbolic reference of a parol giving light to people was used. it was an unusual setting to have a wake during the christmas season. an irony of feelings; you don't know if you're gonna be happy for the yuletide season or be sad because there's a dead person in your living room.

the story focused on family relationships, and how the death of the mother brought out the real relationships among brothers and sisters. soundtrack was excellent (aha von de guzman), even the direction and choice of actors. lynn sherman is such a winner.

i found it funny when they started to forgive the cousin. the cousin inherited the large house that the family lived in. they didn't know about this cousin; because apparently, the cousin was the son of the illegitimate sister of the deceased. the family thought he was the boyfriend of the deceased and that he was hoarding the money of the family.

the forgiveness came right away. if i were the daughter, i would doubt the cousin. he could've forced the mother to put that he was the cousin and that he should have the right to the house. maybe i'm being too filipino soap opera-ish, but i wouldn't give my whole trust to it. at least someone from the family had to know that the mother had a sister. someone trustful from the family to convince the other members that he is really a relative. there could've been a better resolution. but the flickering parol was nice for an ending.

funny moments: it's a laugh trip when you know the people in the film. myk acted as a gay fan. HAHA di bagay myk, you're too manly to become a gay fan. i wanted to poke you during your fan mode, but you were at the other side of the aisle. the producers were there as "chismosang mourners": sis evelyn, sis lynette, sis elaine, bro eugene (kakai, umaarte tito mo. hahaha)

rating: 3.5 out of 5 tickets

i wish to watch more. but pisay is at 5 pm tomorrow at film center. sakker, i get out at 5. i'll try to watch ligaw liham on thursday, but i can't promise anything. rrrr... more showing dates up, MOOOORE!!!

caucasian chalk circle

>> Saturday, July 21, 2007

if you don't go "awwwww..." in this play, i'm gonna have your head cut off. it's also the cure for "my-greyn!"

caucasian chalk circle (or litisang bilog ng caucasus) starts the 29th season of tanghalang ateneo. written by bertolt brecht and translated by ron capinding, it talks about how justice runs in a circle.

our justice system is interesting, in a way that it has become a theatrical stage. note the musical and the movie chicago, where a crime becomes a circus. it makes headlines, criminals become celebrities, and those convicted come up with the most creative and interesting excuses to let them off the hook. the tv series justice, tells how lawyers can battle their way in a court room to win a case. the more equipped your lawyer is, the more chances of winning a case. sometimes, it's also how much coins you have jingling in your pocket that draws a line between guilty and not guilty.

but somewhere inside that circus ring, there is still a glimmer of hope for real justice.

the plot is similar to the bible story of solomon the wise, where he had to judge who was the rightful mother of a child. michael is the child in the middle of the circle, with two mothers fighting for him: grusha, a servant and natella, the real mother and a governor's wife. two years ago, the governor was beheaded after a coup revolt against him. natella flees the city to save her life, and leaves michael in a dangerous situation where he could be killed. grusha takes him as her own and raises him up, knowing that she's bound to countless risks and sacrifices. when natella returns from her exile, she demands the right to michael's custody. grusha, on the other hand, vows never to part ways with michael, as she has called him his own and has played the mother role in his life.

the key lies not in the influential power you have over the ruling party, but in the eyes of an innocent little child. with michael in the presence of the judge, money flips over and hearts move forward. it's in those twinkling eyes of a young one that brings back the true justice. the moment that little kid stepped on to the stage, everyone, including the audience couldn't contain themselves. the whole theater goes, "awwww..." and clutches on to their seats when grusha and natella start tugging on micahel. the michael in our lives brings us back to our own grounds. we forget all worldly matters, all for the sake of the young. you'll risk everything: your engagement, your safety, your money, your strength, even your sanity, just to make sure that a child is safe.

why a circle? why not a triangle, a square, a rectangle? because real justice needs circles, where everything is an equal distance from the truth. michael stood at the middle, and in him lies the answer and the judgment of the trial. he was the bullet to hit bull's eye, shattering social class and ranking. he brought the heart back to justice.

the play offers hope for our justice system. we hope that in that circle lies the truth that influences our judgment for what is right. it's not about money, it's not about having the best lawyer, it's not about positional influence. it's about finding the focal point that equalizes everyone in the eyes of justice, and giving the floor to the rightful ones.

tanghalang ateneo notes that "our theater offers a bit of hope, the hope echoing from inside the caucasian chalk circle, namely that what there is - the state and all its institutions - shall belong to those who are good for it. for only then shall it, the state, bear fruit."

pfft. dami ko pang gustong sabihin, kaso tinatamad na ako. wala naring coherence yung post ko =)) thanks to reamur for the pictures, btw. gusto ko pa maglagay ng maraming pictures, kaso ang hirap mamili.


3 colors

>> Friday, July 20, 2007

in the span of one day and numerous pages of worksheets, i was able to procrastinate three wallpapers.

the skies, the seas, and the trees

the first one was an inspiration from miya. haha she was thinking of creating an account with livejournal, and i volunteered of making a layout. she said she'll think about it first. the inspiration just hit me, i made something blue (which is her favorite color). i gave ideas, and one of them was a pop-artish layout. it's up to her if she's going to use it -- that is if she creates an account.

the green layout is the third of the series. the inspiration for that is an mtv announcement for the shows. the circle with dangling lines came from mtv, the i just added the other shapes. figure out what that is. :)

quincy dared me to make a pink layout for him. who says seas can't be pink? besides, i had blue for the sky, i can't make the seas blue too. imagination is everything. a fairy tale land. i made two versions of that. the first one was crappy, so i'm not sharing it with you. haha

full views are in my deviant art.


giddy-yup informal

>> Thursday, July 19, 2007

i was in a bad mood when i woke up (maybe because of the stiff neck HAHA), so i wasn't expecting anything to cheer me up. while i was eating breakfast, i was thinking of the most "bruhilda" status for my ym. i even ate breakfast alone because i woke up at 830 and my parents ate when i was asleep. boooyeah.

while i was halfway through my meal of fried fish and grumpiness, dad stopped whatever he was doing at the library and sat down with me. awwwww... he even offered to get the milk from the fridge for me. grumpiness meter dropped halfway.

i sat at my computer and took out my worksheets to finish. frustrating for me, because i'm running out of insects, animals and trees to write about. i have to think of different topics to last me 10 levels. i'm only in grade 1, and all the species of the insect land are eating my worksheets. i need more of them to munch through grade 6. man, that's a long way to go.

so anyway, i did my usual routes in the net: ym, multiply, lj, mail. lastly was the forums, and i expected the boring blue header with the name of the host plastered on it.

but no, no, no! it was a refreshing sight to see something new. grumpiness meter dropped to minimal! around 10% was left. oh giddy joy!

it looks so informal. i love it! thanks peewee, you did a great job! you saved us from the bland smf host banner!

go join the bloomfields forums! it's ahlahttafahn!


anti txt talk

>> Tuesday, July 17, 2007

i snagged this from mea's friendster profile. i posted this on my profile and two of my blogs. :) i loves its very much.

my former forum siggy:
"galangin ang english at filipino. type your words out, and properly please."

i don't get it why people type in text language. it can be done once in a while, for fun; but once it becomes a habit, it becomes evil.

there are people in the forums who type in sTicKy CaPs (alternating big and small letters), and text language (e.g. geh p0wh. miz q n p0wh kaU.) i not only find it irritating, but it also strains my eyes. i was trained to read full words in their proper spelling, and seeing these words in a regular basis distorts my knowledge in spelling.

i don't mind people posting in tagalog or taglish, as long as they keep the words complete. it's for their own good too; because once they get used to typing and texting in that manner, they'll carry that habit for the rest of their lives. soon, the webster dictionary will no longer be useful, because people don't know how to spell their words correctly. it's the same as not paying attention and not respecting the english and filipino language. language is sacred, it's a gift. we should not desecrate it.

i plead on my knees. type your words out. complete them. use them for what it's worth. love every letter in each word. as much as possible, do the same for texting. it's our most commonly used means of communication, so let it be a training ground for your spelling. scrap the text language, embrace the english and filipino language.


orchestra-ic likes

>> Monday, July 16, 2007

in a world of r&b, metal rock, alternative rock, pop and rap, you'd think that music will go no where but forward. it seems that classical music will never be unearthed or appreciated by today's generation. music is so contemporary that music by orchestras are considered old style and boring.

but after seeing the videos from "britain's got talent," i realized that somewhere out there, classical music still has a chance of capturing people's hearts.

enter paul potts. a telephone operator. nothing's so grand about him: he's not attractive, he has an ordinary job, he even looks like a total loser. but once he opened his mouth to sing, everyone jumped to their feet for a standing ovation. even simon cowell, the notorious basher from american idol, is wowed at his talent.

his intention is not to impress people, or to show off. he does not even want to go with the flow and sing pop. he wants to sing opera. that's it. he also reveals that with singing opera, he begins to forget everything around him who adds to his low self-esteem.

notice the look on the judges' faces when paul says, "i want to sing opera." they got the look of this-is-not-the-right-place-to-do-that. the subtitles on their faces were just screaming, "okhaaay. let's get this done. quickly."

but once he sings, the audience gets teary eyed, the judges drop their jaws and people starts cheering for him. he's an instant crowd favorite.

we all know that paul wins the competition, hands down. people voted for him even if he's not going to enter the world's 50 handsome men or would be a hot action star. he's got talent, britain saw he's got potential, and they didn't rely on face factor to determine the winner.

with that gesture, we know that classical music is not yet buried six feet under. classical music needs to be re-discovered to inspire lives and uplift souls. just as classical music gave paul strength, it can have the same effect to other people. classical music is just there in the music archives, waiting for the right person to press the play button and appreciate what it has got to give.

i've also grown up with classical music. three of my most favorite artists are classical singers: josh groban, il divo, and charlotte church. josh groban is experimenting with other genres but he's still keeping his classical voice. il divo is still il divo with four hot classical singers. haha charlotte church used to be a pure classical singer before she shifted to pop three-four years ago. i still listen to her pop songs but i prefer her classical side.

i've appreciated other genres (especially country and 60s rock n' roll), but i always come back to classical music. in the car on the way to the mrt, when i go home, before i sleep, and when i need to concentrate at work, i have classical music on my ears. my blockmates know that i'm on the classical music genre that's why when they send songs, they make sure it's near the uplifting music of the orchestra; nothing to metal-ish rock, or too noisy for my taste.

whenever i'm on a classical mod at work, i always wish that the day people will start appreciating classical music again will come soon. classical music has many wonders. it can boost a person's brain, it can increase memory, it can aid the intelligence of a child, it can calm nervous feelings, and even make plants bloom. without classical music, there wouldn't be derivations of the music we have today. :)


nickel creek

>> Friday, July 13, 2007

tina recommended the band nickel creek because of their beautiful musicality. i got the 2006 album of their greatest hits today (thanks to torrent haha). i'm not sure if their genre is country or acoustic. what i am sure of is that i love their guitarist, he's a crazy guitarist. i don't know how his fingers move on the guitar. he strums so fast, stringing notes in a clear order (especially for the song 'this side'). amazing.

while i was listening to their album, i came across one of their songs. i began to remember the video last sunday during our church service. it was a video about pursuit of happyness, how will smith portrayed chris gardner. there was one song that they played during the movie. it was also the song that gave chris gardner strength and hope during the lowest times in his life. nickel creek also has their version. i like nickel creek's version better, because the one in the movie sounds "preachy". haha

listen to the song in my multiply, along with the other songs i uploaded from nickel creek's latest cd.

You Don't Have To Move That Mountain

You don't have to move that mountain
Just help me Lord to climb it
You don't have to move that stumbling block
Just show me the way around it

We must climb a great high mountain
To reach Gold's gracious kingdom
In His words you'll find the strength
If you will just believe them

Well the way is filled with pitfalls
And sometimes we may falter
You can have His grace my friend
On your knees down at the altar

ps. i just noticed that majority of my posts lately contain lyrics. :P



>> Thursday, July 12, 2007

people say that in love (or in any other relationship), opposite poles attract. it's the differences that propel people to like each other, to click, to make a connection. it's the north that attracts the south, and vice versa.

have you ever thought it's not only in the differences but also in the similarities? magnets won't attract if they're not magnets, or made of metal. metal on metal, magnet on magnet, pole on pole. positive on negatives, but they're both signs, and both have currents. without those common points, a magnet won't attract another foreign object -- let's say magnet on plastic.

it's the similarities that connects people. they find something to share with each other, and it's the differences in those similarities that make it more interesting. the differences become the learning points for two people. then sooner or later, it'll become a bridge to their similarities. they'll become one in those learning points. you adapt to the other's likes, as the other person adapts to yours. you meet at a common point, you join forces. the north and south pole pull their way towards each other.

but what about having both norths in relationships? or both souths? it's for the cliche phrase of, "not meant for each other." it's the good versus the bad, the black versus the white, the up versus the down. not all people agree on certain ideas. too much similarities can be a source of jealousy and competition. you see yourself in that other person and you try to be like him. the more you try to push your way towards his "currents," the more you'll clash. you'll end up getting frustrated because you won't jive with that other person.

we were made to become magnets. we build relationships with others. it's in the matter of making the right connection. we match our poles with those different from us, but share the same current. let the electricity flow freely and everything will come full circle.

king creole

my iTunes player at work is on shuffle. so whenever the song "king creole" is being played, i can't help myself from shaking my fingers. the staple choreograph of the bloomfields' version always gets to me. it's so contagious.

watch this video to see what i mean. whooops, embedding was disabled, so i'll just be attaching the link. this was taken by my dear wowie, at a strumms gig last may.

here's a blurry video with bad audio. ahahaha this was during their mall of asia gig. you just gotta love the rayban shades. wowie's video is clearer than this.

the original song was by none other than elvis presley. if you want to listen to the original version, i have a copy of it in my multiply. it's slower than what the bloomfields did. i'm gonna memorize this song, so that i can sing to the lyrics. hahaha i only know the background chuwariwap and some parts of the chorus.

king creole
by elvis presley

There's a man in New Orleans
Who plays rock and roll
He's a guitar man
With a great big soul
He lays down a beat
Like a ton of coal
He goes by the name of King Creole

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip shaking King Creole

When the king starts to do it
It's as good as done
He holds his guitar
like a tommy gun
He starts to growl
From way down his throat
He bends a string
And "that's all she wrote"

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip shaking King Creole

Well, he sings a song about a crawdad hole
He sings a song about a jelly roll
He sings a song about pork and greens
He sings some blues 'bout New Orleans

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip shaking King Creole

Well, he plays something evil
Then he plays something sweet
No matter how he plays
You got to get up on your feet

When he gets the rockin' fever
baby, heaven sakes
He don't stop playin'
'Till his guitar breaks

You know he's gone, gone, gone
Jumpin' like a catfish on a pole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip shaking King Creole
You know he's gone, gone, gone
Hip shaking King Creole

you wish to be somebody. but honey, you can't be everybody. think "jack of all trades, master of none."

this is college, the start of a new life. you're stressing yourself to much. college is supposed to be fun, not stressful.

experiencing sleepless nights is one of the coolest experiences. we bragged about not sleeping. but you seem depressed at the idea. it's part of college life. it won't be normal if you don't go through it.

please yourself for once. don't think of the people around you. they're not controlling your life, you are. enjoy what you're doing. don't think of the title after 4 years. think of the journey. iha, nagsisimula ka palang, mas matindi na iniisip mo saming nagttrabaho na.

yummy food at tender bob's. i guess it was a bad idea to eat mushroom soup because by the time my burger arrived, my stomach was full. food's great, btw, i recommend it to hungry stomachs.

the block had our annual lunch-out yesterday. normally, we do it in the evenings, but today we decided to have it for lunch. our primary reason for that is we wanted cerz to be with us. she has the graveyard shift and saturday afternoon is the best time for her that she won't be tired. but no, we found out that she took a leave last friday and went to work yesterday. she needed to rest also because her office scheduled a team building seminar today.hahahaha so much for the sched change.

it was one of the rare moments that the boys outnumbered the girls. i was the only girl from the block. two were girlfriends (carla and kim) of my blockmates, one was billy's sister (beanne), and the other was an honorary member (em).

do not bring your guy friends in tender bob's because they'll think of the wackiest and the most testosterone-filled one-liners in the menu. pangalan palang ng tender bob's, ginawa na nilang malaswa. HAHAHAH add to that the "hellboy" movie being showed in the restaurant yesterday.

from tender bob's, we trekked to starbucks and continued our hyper mode there.

the best part of the afternoon was when we decided to make our own version of the philippine transformers. (no spoilers! i haven't watched it yet. *loser sign up!* AKO LANG MAY KARAPATANG GUMAWA NIYAN SA POST NA TO. WALA NANG SUSUNOD SA GESTURE NA YAN.) it was fun describing the parts that the philtransformers would have: the signs ("basta driver, sweet lover" "god knows hudas not pay" etc), the defense mechanisms (smoke belching), the sound effects (hyena laugh) and the weakness (pull string to stop).

we ended the day around 430, because i had to leave for trinoma (food trip AGAIN). it was a fun experience, especially with my blockmates. wait for next year, it'll be a riot again. oh, there's still the christmas dinner. hehe bel field, here we come again!

i'll snag all pictures jace, billy and chino took yesterday and will upload them in my multiply tomorrow. :)


*burp* *drools* razon's.

that is the the aftermath of a razon's lunch. regi dropped by makati this afternoon to get his atm card fixed. it's also been a while since we've last seen each other, he promised me that he'd meet up for lunch whenever he had the free time. we've been planning a lunch out for over a year, and today was finally the day we met.

haha i'm sorry reg for giving you wrong directions on our building. i guess i was thinking of the "other left" (yung kabilang kaliwa. hahaha labo) when you asked which side goodwill building was on. thank god for manong pulis under the flyover and he enlightened you with my sabog directions.

regi was so sweet, he gave me a headset. i've been complaining for a long time that i didn't have a decent headset at work, so he bought one for me. hahaha he bought the type with a built-in microphone, so that we could try the talk features of ym. i'm getting the most interesting and lovely gifts for my birthday. ahloveet.

it was a good lunch, though it was short. it would've been fun if the whole sonshine group were there; i'm sure we would've rocked razon's. haha regi and i talked about a lot of stuff, mostly stories down memory lane. sheks regi, we're getting older and older by the year. remember when we first met? i was still in grade school and i think you were in your 1st year in high school. now, we're both working. nothing's changed, we're still two wacky and hungry friends. HAHAHAHA

the lunch out will happen again... soon. we plan on inviting more people. jace was supposed to join us, but he had an impromptu meeting so he had to back out from our lunch. there's always a next time.

i'm loving my birthday, it's a week-long celebration! :) next stop, tri noma with my tita and cousin!

my officemates are so sweet.

last week, i worked at home while i was taking my antibiotics for my pokey-wokey open gums. i went back to work today, a fresh start for a fresh new month.

and they had two surprises for me!

when i plopped down on my table, groggy from the long sleep in the car, i noticed this half a page article stuck to my corkboard. it was an article about the bloomfields and their hawaii trip. i just had to laugh, my officemates love me so much. haha they were also the ones who gave me the other bloomfields article, which is now stuck in the topmost part of my corkboard, along with the love hopes ticket. the hawaii article is so big, i just packed it away in my drawer. :)

but it didn't end there. they gave me a coooool book light. it'll actually pass as a slim pda. i could actually fool people by attaching a pair of earphones. hahaha

i love the tagline for it, "it lights the book, not your eyes."

it can also magnify the words, especially if the text is small. i've been dying to have one, and God granted me my wish. sweeeeet stuff.

i'm gonna enjoy reading tonight on the way home. hohohoyessss.
