silly writer

Thanks to Martin Gonzales for the picture. Click it to see his blog. He's got a nice feature on Maximo Oliveros.

Okay, if you've never heard of Pinoy Big Brother, you've probably been living under a rock. Their faces are plastered on every sidewalk and billboard from here to Timbuktu and the equally sticky theme song is played almost every minute.

So last night, I was watching it, right? Okay, I can see where this is going. Maybe before I start this post, I ought to warn you. I am a TV addict and I'll absorb whatever junk ABS-CBN produces and markets as uber cool. But last night, phew, last night was just stupid.

They were asked to burn, cut, and throw away almost all their clothes. Now I always try to empathize with them during tasks like this. I ask questions like "would i do this?" or "can my frail body handle that?". But last night was super stupid. What lesson would they get from destroying items of sentimental value?

ABS-CBN tried to cover it up, saying that the test was to see how the housmates knew Big Brother. Now, that was stupid. Maybe the average viewer with an IQ of 100 would believe you, as seen by Cass' downright humiliating apology. I bet the lesson for that task had to do with being materialistic and since those silly writers (who need a good whacking) realized this was something the housemates would not stand for, they had to edit it. Stupid, stupid, stupid.

Which goes to show that nothing is perfect. I thought ABS-CBN had it right this time. Apparently not. If I were them, I would've edited out the whole thing and made a killing on DVD. "The episode where the Final Four almost walked out."

Jason was right when he said that he would do a lot of things to be the winner but never at the expense of someone else. That was dead on.

And Big Brother, aka Laurenti Dyogi (not really sure about that. rumor has it...), even struck below the belt (yes friends, even lower than that stupid task) by "testing" (in quotes because i don't believe his intentions were good) Jason, asking him if Uma and his Israeli pants were worth more than his sickly mother and the future of his children. That was both manipulative and mean.

They can't have the Final Four walk out. They would've cancelled voting by now. Plus, to quote Mean Girls, they've already paid the DJ. Too late. I wonder if the housemates know how much power they really have.

I'm in Netopia right now. My usual Internet place is still open but when I went there, the guy was still eating and he couldn't pay attention to me. It's 3:00 so I'm guessing he must be pretty hungry if he hasn't eaten lunch by now so I didn't want to disturb him. Maybe next time.

I watched Chicken Little yesterday and it wasn't as bad as everyone says it is. There are just some underlying issues I'm not confortable with like if your parents don't listen to you, it means they don't love you. Or if your parents don't believe you all the time, they don't love you either. Let me tell you, if that were true, my parents must really not love me. He he...

My mom got a new job and she's starting early next year which means I have to say goodbye to the precious laptop. *sigh*

What was Gwen thinking? Re-releasing Love.Angel.Music.Baby without the Luxurious remix?! So sad. I saw it in Tower kanina but I can't find a copy of it on the internet. It's almost monochromatic with a bronzey feel to it. Has anyone else seen this?

Almost as sad as the Karma video not in The Diary of Alicia Keys re-issue. A lot of women are cashing in on reisuues these days. There's Kelly Clarkson and then Mariah Carey. At least Mariah released a video for one of the bonus songs. Kinda gives you a reason to buy the same record twice, eh?

That's it. That's all I wanted to say. Hopefully, tomorrow will be more interesting.

the daytime star: describe to me immediately!

i'm not sure if y'all are interested in this but i actually saw this weird translation of the theme from sesame street while i was looking for a DECENT mp3 to put in my authorware activity. anyways, here's the site where i got it from and here's the translation which will surely make your day.

it was translated from english to this weird language i'm not entirely sure of before translating it back to english. to sum it up, everything's lost in translation!

Here's the original version.

Sesame Street
Sunny day
Sweepin' the clouds away
On my way
to where the air is sweet.
Can you tell me how to get,
how to get to Sesame Street?

Come and play!
Everythings A-O-kay.
Friendly neigh-
bors there, that's were we meet.
Can you tell me how to get,
how to get to Sesame Street?

It's a magic carpet ride,
ev'ry door will open wide
to happy people like you.
Happy people like,
what a beautiful
Sunny day...

Here it is translated to and from Klingon.

Sesame He bom
A day of the daytime star.
The clouds are compelled to commence fleeing, and are filled with dread.
I have a destination;
and there, because of the atmosphere, I am pleased.
Describe to me immediately
how to go to Sesame Street.
Accept the game!
To all things we are compelled to say "Well done!"
The neighbours seem to behave in a friendly fashion,
and there is where we enter!
Describe to me immediately
how to go to Sesame Street.

You go there in legendary Birds of Prey.
And when you have arrived, the doors are soon
open and functional, because you are happy.
Fully functional, because of there being happiness about.
Today it is a truly beautiful
day of the daytime star...

not another bad day - the sequel

i guess i really wasn't fair to some close friends when i wrote that. i wanna apologize. people do a lot of stupid things when they're mad and i guess even i am guilty of that. i realize this now and although i am apologetic, it has never been my practice to apologize for being honest and so the post remains unedited.

but this isnt my reason for posting today. i braved the 5 steps to the internet cafe to post. i just watched harry potter today and i saw the trailer for Superman begins. oh my gawsh! i nearly crapped my pants. im so excited. so so so so excited!!!

hopefully by then, i won't be such a bitch and someone nice will hold my hand as we watch. :D

not another bad day

I'm having another bad day and it's crazy how i feel like no one's really willing to talk to me about it. It's like, i'm so easily dismissed as a happy person who doesn't have an edgy side but that couldn't be farther from the truth.

Pissed off because I finally understand why this girl in my school doesn't like my company. It's so pathetic okay. I was actually quite close with her at one point and then this guy came along and courted her. We used to ride home together all the time and she'd ask me what i thought about Guy. So i told her what i thought, at that time, honestly that he wasn't exactly the type i imagined her to be with and stuff. But i ultimately changed my mind when i got to know him more. I thought everything was peachy and when we weren't classmates anymore, i found out they finally became a couple.

There was a time that i liked her but that was only for a wee bit, until i realized how all the attention was starting to get to her. I found out that she told Guy I was saying bad stuff about him, delaying their "coupleness". It was as if i was saying bad stuff about him in purpose because supposedly, i wanted her for myself.

What a load of bullshit. First of all, y'all should see her. She's far from pretty, okay so I don't see where she's coming from. Second, she asked for MY PERSONAL OPINION okay and I don't wanna lie just to make things happen. If she really didn't want to hear it, she shouldn't have asked.

It makes so much sense now, how she's been kinda weird towards me. Guy, on the other hand has been super nice to me but all this came from his mouth so I'm guessing everything was just plasticity. I hate plastic people. I hate them.

And to think his little clique is so popular for being that kind of element.

I may be burning bridges as we speak. Let's hope they don't ever get to read this.

Second thing to bitch about is my stupid friends who are seeing a movie today. I must've texted them a million times from this morning to this afternoon and they weren't replying. When they did, they didn't answer important questions like can we move it to Robinson's so everything's more affordable and stuff like that. I just feel so unwanted today. I don't even want to look in the mirror.

I finished a story that I've been working on for a long time now. It's 11 pages long and I seem to like it. I wonder when I'll ever be published.

At the end of everything, there's only two beings you can trust and lean on, God foremost and yourself. Everyone just lets you down. I may look happy but believe me, I am not. I hope someday I'll understand why everything happened. Maybe someday, I'll understand why Girl thinks that way and why Guy acts like we're so close. Ugh. UGH!!! DAMN IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Haaa.... I feel a little better. I hope this feeling continues.

On a lighter note, I'm almost finished with the Christmas wishlist. I only don't have 5 of those and 3 I already saw but didn't buy. See... the power of wishful thinking!
