Just My Opinion: Why I hate Mainstream Media and Popular Culture

“You just have to go with the flow” Have you ever experienced being deemed out of place because of your failure to comply with the system, the standards that manipulate the lives of each of us like a limp marionette? I’ve personally been watching videos from The School of Life on YouTube, and it had given me…

The Road Not Taken by Robert Frost

One of my favorite poems ever.. Two roads diverged in a yellow wood, And sorry I could not travel both And be one traveler, long I stood And looked down one as far as I could To where it bent in the undergrowth; Then took the other, as just as fair, And having perhaps the…

Untitled Poem #1

Note: This was supposed to be an oration (but it was out of my knowledge that an oration is somewhat more like a speech that a poem). So I’m just gonna post it here. I’m here to tell you a story Of two little children who once lived so merry Never knew each other they…

Tough Love

“Looks can be very deceiving..” I didn’t know what had gotten into my head, but these words had me thinking deeply this whole morning. We were having a seminar/workshop/whatever=you-call-it-event in our school library. Blessed us in disguise for we are not having any regular classes by now. “Ano bang gagawin natin?” I asked myself, my friends,…

Shut Up and DANCE!!

Yesterday I used up our local holiday here in Tarlac (guess what? It’s Ninoy Aquino’s birthday) for our dance practice in Mapeh. We already had plans the day before: Meetup at 7-11. “piso per minute” (paying an additional peso per a minute of tardiness) and arrive together at my classmate’s house by 9am. Well let’s have an…

Throwback Poetry: We

We encounter a mountain of hurdles And jump like kangaroos Yet we still jump so low And trip down all alone We pick ourselves up Or if others pick on us We try to jump together And together we fall We try to give up And sit beside the hurdle That has turned into a…

Who’s the Thespian?

I adopted the name The Thespian’s Knife from my tumblr blog. Originally it was from one of my favorite band Alesana’s album The Emptiness. As one of those punk lovers, this is art. Embedded in this sweetcore rock album is a story, about a sketch artist back in the 1800’s. This person (coined The Artist in the album) has…

Negation

Whatever you call it, rejection, dejection, negation, it’s all the same. It feels the same, sad, depressing, awful, bitter. But we have to experience this at least once in our lives. No, never once, never twice, but most of the time. I can recall a thousand rejections in my life, not including the ones that…

Images

If I could just have text for blogs, I would never have a problem. Well it seems that I need some pictures in here because it’s boring to read something without visualization to relax our reading eyes from vastly imaginative text. Therefore I realized that I have to embed some pictures in this blog. I…

Throwback Poetry: Love or Lust

  Living my mortal life as a normal guy Yet made a grave sin and I’m worthy to die I fell in love with two equal maidens The Love and the Lust, their beauty glistens The two young girls are twins to death And nobody can tell which of them is who I’m forced in…

Blogging

So it’s my first time to write a blog on WordPress (again, I was typing this about 15 minutes ago and it was a long story how I did get back here). It’s a pleasure to have myself into blogging again. I was on Tumblr a few months (to a year?) ago. I love to…
