blackout


I probably shouldn’t be writing yet another sappy love post.
I know people only like me when I’m depressed.
But after all the bullshit I went through last year,
Don’t you think I deserve my moment of happiness?
And besides, it’s not like I’m not trying to write.
This story* I’ve been working on hasn’t been going anywhere.
What can I do when every time I pick up my pen, all I can think of is
 you ?

  1. Nyl!!! I hate you. Kanta ko yan! Hahaha.

    But that was a long time ago, perhaps the song is yours now.

    1. Kane: Honey, I am very open to the idea of sharing the song. Ewan ko nalang kung ipagdadamot mo pa. haha I felt kinda silly because I didn't know it was a Kylie song. I only knew the hook so I was singing it (super badly) to a friend para ma-identify namin. haha

  3. LOL. Read Kane's post, and yeah, it was his song.

    This gave me an idea on what I'll post on my "Amnesia" entry. Thanks for that Nyl.

    And don't worry about "A Criminal Mind". Ideas are everywhere. Somehow, you'll find one :)

    1. Rei: I'm sorry I didn't do the song justice. It was just seriously this earworm I had to indulge. :(

      And you're welcome. Blackout poetry's been around for a while but I only got the idea to really try it when I saw Orange's post. :)

      Delete
    2. Over. Haha. Seriously, you think too much.

      And thank you,again, for introducing me to blackout poetry. So this is it huh. Didn't figure it out the first time I went here.

      Delete
    3. Rei: Yes, I famously overthink things. I think it helps with the writing process. You can't be selfish and just have one side of the story in mind, right?

      Not that this post is particularly brilliant. if it's blackout poetry you want, you'd be better off Googling since this isn't a very good example. For starters, you're supposed to use an actual book I think.

      or check out Trip's page over at The Light Fantastic. She's a powerful writer and back in September, she did a couple of awesome blackout posts. You can thank me once she's blown you away by what she can do.

      Delete
    4. Well, I suppose over thinking helps. Hehe. And I followed The Light Fantastic. You're right, she's amazing. Thank you for making her blowing me away LOL.

      Delete
    5. Rei: Not sure if I made her blow you away. The girl's super talented. You're welcome. :)

      Delete
    6. Well, she did. Or you did. Or something. Hahah.

    1. Spiral: So I'm so sorry. Nakakahiya naman. Google flagged your comment for spam. I was manually approving it when *tada* Delete napindot ko. haha So sorry.

      And yes, I'm a happy buoy right now. Wish ko lang people still stick around for this version of me. Ewan. haha Wasn't this the point of EBHBC? The original peg, that is.

    2. s'okay.

      And lookit, who'd have thought that you'd actually be the happy buoy while we were doing this? :)

    3. Spiral Prince: It's like the universe conspired! haha but I'm not too happy with my blog life right now. I guess you really can't have it all (or not all at once) My career and love life's real nice right now. I just wish I could get a handle on my writing.

  11. Writer's block, which could also go appropriately with blackout. Hey, I don't like you for the extravagant manner of which you express your darkness. Though apparently, I think you've already got past that. *for now* (may for now talaga!!)

  12. Nyl, tell Kane that I wrote that song! It's MINE. I'm sitting here collecting royalties and working simply for the sheer joy of working. But he and his posse (That's POSSE, not pussy! :P) can enjoy it in da kluubs. (Damn, I'm amusing myself!!!)

    1. Rick: I didn't realize you were a hotshot pop producer. Wiki tells me your real name is Lil Eddie Serrano. lolz

      There's something very liberating about thoroughly enjoying an inane pop song, no? It's like I don't give a fuck. I just want to enjoy myself. ;]

  13. Now you got me in the mood......getting ready to watch the latest elimination on American Idol @ 8PM.....

    1. Rick: I'm more of into The Voice right now but I've been following Jessica Sanchez's performance via YouTube. She's part-Filipina so my allegiance is almost automatic but unlike Ramiel, Jasmine and Camille, she's actually really talented. :)

      Delete
    2. I got into the Voice, but my schedule has me working Monday nights. Interesting format. This is the first Idol season I've watched in about 6 years. Sanchez IS very good, but like David Archuleta before her, I get really tired of that squeeky cutsie shy shit at the end of every song when the judges are having their orgasms. GROW SOME BALLS AND TAKE CONTROL OF THE STAGE! My favorite is Joshua Ledet. Oh damn can he sing! Love it! My prediction for top 3: Jessica, Joshua, and Colton. Winner? Jessica.

      Delete
    3. Rick: You're lucky. They don't even air it over here. I have to download each episode bia The Pirate Bay.

      I totally get the Archuleta reference. It was cute for the first few episodes but by the time he was doing really well, it just got annoying. The only thing I can say about Jessica is it may be a Filipino thing (although she did grow up over there) A Filipino would never, ever accept a compliment. haha

      I do hope Jessica wins. That girl's got real decent chops.

    oh nyl. don't underestimate some of your readers. most of them like to see you happy. it wouldn't hurt, i think, to write 'sappy love posts' once in a while...

    2. well, they hit the right notes with some people. unless you're blogging for your readers, or playing for the gallery, i don't think you should worry too much. i blog to retain memories; that some people find them interesting is just a bonus. :-)
