Trip to Sorsogon

Time is the most scarce resource. It is irreversible. It is not sustainable. It is constantly running out. The way you spend or trade your time must be thoughtfully calculated with the deepest reflections of what’s truly important. Some say the average lifespan is at around 70. Almost a third of this is spent sleeping….

Turn Left?

“Enjoyment was divorced from labor, the means from the end, the effort from the reward.Everlastingly chained to a single little fragment of the Whole, man himself develops into nothing but a fragment; everlastingly in his ear the monotonous sound of  the wheel that he turns, he never develops the harmony of his being, and instead…

Immersion

In many instances, genius cannot be credited or disclosed and will forever remain silent in the behind-the-scenes of history. I’ve allegedly done school papers for college students for a price if I found the subject interesting (and allegedly got excellent and top grades). I’ve allegedly photoshopped and falsified public documents; some for a price, some…

French Vanilla and Education

She liked French vanilla, I remember. It was mostly sugar and flavoring but she loved it nonetheless. I like mine black. Pure and strong flavor. Quite the acquired taste. Without that early crash that comes from sugar. Caffeine is a necessary evil, I’ve always said. It is one legal alternative agaist the existential dread that comes…

Globe Community Event AVP

Video was presented for first ever gathering of Globe Community members. Second video was used in between the speech of Globe CEO Ernest Cu. Used free templates but heavily modified and at the same time added new elements as requested by my supervisor (some kinetic typography and the 3D stuff)    

Panaginip

Nakaupo ako sa isang kahoy na mesa kung saan nakalatag ang mga telang may muwestrang nag-mula sa mga malayong lugar. Kahit ang aming upuan ay puno ng ukit ng mga simbolong tila’y galing sa ibang mundo. “Binibili ko na ang pag-tulog ko,” sabi ng matandang hermitanyong nasa aking harapan. “Alam mo ba ang ibig sabihin…

The Thin Line Between Fiction and Non-fiction

I just ordered honey bourbon chicken from a fairly attractive lady in this restaurant called Whistlestop not so far from my place. There’s this old school telephone booth right outside that is very reminiscent of Dr. Who. And like her alleged prose on the Quarter Pounder, I do find meaninglessness in this chicken dish. I just like…

Why I Wanted to Watch Chicane (and Why I didn’t)

It’s obvious that Chicane is a big fan of post-rock and Icelandic music. Although there were already some of his older sounds that seemed to stray away from the “being stuck with only producing house music” kind of path, he had some pretty awesome chillout tracks. Although it was after he released Poppiholla, his rendition…

It’s Irrational

It’s irrational when you’re all of a sudden a morning person. When you wake up so easily with no need for a cup of coffee. When it feels like you’ve already had two cups. So full of life and energy that it’s disgusting. This sappy, fuzzy warmth makes me want to puke. It’s irrational when…

Brainchild Earth: Leave the Light On

This table, someone had to build it. Someone had to plant a tree that was then cut down and then eventually built, purchased, and shipped  into this room. We touch it, we feel it. It’s the same for everything else around us. You see, this moment was made for you and me. But there are…
