Don't Waste A Perfectly Good Thursday Evening


If you grew up on C.S. Lewis' timeless masterpiece and/or you have nothing better to do this September 18 (Thursday), you guys might want to head on over to the UP Film Institute and catch a rerun of The Chronicles of Narnia: Prince Caspian. Screening starts at 5 p.m. Bring your friends and/or family as well. :)

This screening is a joint project of my org, the UP Lingua Franca, and other assorted orgs of the University of the Philippines. If you're interested, leave a reply and I will PM you my contact info (if you don't already have it) so we can discuss ticket details. Hope you come! :)

Un/Bound

I found this in a compilation of Jose F. "Pete" Lacaba's works entitled "Medya Edad", which was lying around the house (LOL XD). It caught my attention immediately not just because it's good but because it was the only English poem in an otherwise-all-Tagalog collection (or is it anthology? Ano nga ba? O.O) I just thought I'd share it with everyone else. :D

In the mini-foreword to this poem Lacaba said that it was the last poem he wrote in English, and he chose to write in Filipino instead from then on. Here's a link to Lacaba's article about this move. Read it if you can. :)

This is also an acrostic poem, by the way. Look closely and you'll find a saying which was rather popular in the 1970s. ^_^


Prometheus Unbound

I shall never exchange my fetters for slavish servility. ’
Tis better to be chained to the rock than be bound to the service of Zeus.
--Aeschylus, Prometheus Bound


Mars shall glow tonight,
Artemis is out of sight.
Rust in the twilight sky
Colors a bloodshot eye,
Or shall I say that dust
Sunders the sleep of the just?

Hold fast to the gift of fire!
I am rage! I am wrath! I am ire!
The vulture sits on my rock,
Licks at the chains that mock
Emancipation’s breath,
Reeks of death, death, death.

Death shall not unclench me.
I am earth, wind, and sea!
Kisses bestow on the brave
That defy the damp of the grave
And strike the chill hand of
Death with the flaming sword of love.

Orion stirs. The vulture
Retreats from the hard, pure
Thrust of the spark that burns,
Unbounds, departs, returns
To pluck out of death’s fist
A god who dared to resist.

Jose F. Lacaba

All right! I'm white. XD

Our English 101 prof, Ma'am Jurilla, mailed us this Medieval Career test. You can check it out here, if you want. :) My results below. :D

any years ago there was a period of time that is often casually called "Medieval." It was a time, so the story tellers tell us, of tiny kingdoms, brave knights and ferocious dragons.

ransportation and travel were both crude and difficult, usually necessitating that each kingdom be as self sufficient and self reliant as possible. So it was very important that within each kingdom all the major crafts and professions of the day were ably represented to insure the survival of the kingdom. In the English language we still see remnants of some occupations in the familiar surnames such as Carpenter, Miller and Baker.

nterestingly enough, beyond the specific title the vocation also took on its own greater personality. This personality preference can also give a broader understanding of the basic complementary style and types necessary to the kingdom's survival, or perhaps any organization's success. Although the specific vocation influenced the name, it was no accident that certain personality types and styles gravitated to certain occupations. The personality of these jobs suited the inclinations of the job holders, and the predecessor to modern day job descriptions was born. The successful matching of a job-holder's personality to the personality and unique requirements of the job was necessary to the kingdom's survival, or perhaps any organization's success. The successful kingdoms more than likely were able to blend the differences into a powerful and formidable entity. With today's diverse workforce, the corporate kingdom that acknowledges and nurtures these personality preferences could become an organization as successful as the Camelot of old.

ven though we now appear to have the freedom to explore many different career alternatives, we still have a medieval vocational personality within each of us. This personality, properly identified and understood, can motivate our success but, if ignored, may set the stage for our ultimate failure. Since times appeared to be simpler then, let us return to the kingdoms of medieval Europe and see what we would have done then, regardless of what our names are now.

our distinct personality, The White Knight, might be found in most of the thriving kingdoms of the time. Don Quixote was a White Knight as was Joan of Arc, the Lone Ranger and Crusader Rabbit. As a White Knight you expect nothing in return for your good deeds. You are one of the true "Givers" of the world. You are the anonymous philanthropist who shares your wealth, your time and your life with others. To give, is its own reward and as a White Knight you seek no other. On the positive side you are merciful, sympathetic, helpful, giving and heroic. On the negative side you may be impulsively decisive, sentimental and misdirected. Interestingly, your preference is just as applicable in today's corporate kingdoms.

- Doubt it. XD


06. Do you have just the few friends?
- Yeah, actually. I have very few real friends. I guess most people do. ^_^


07. If so - do you prefer it that way?

08. Would you like to have new friends?
- Sure, why not? :)

09. Do your friends share the same things in common with you?

011. Do you have a good or bad social life?
- Right now? My social life is in critical condition. XDDD


012. Where do you go to meet nice people?
- IDK, where do nice people usually grow? :))


013. Who is the greatest friend you have ever known?
- Ummm, wag na, baka maselos yung iba. XDDD But for real I'm lucky enough to have the best friend in the world. ;)


014. Do you believe that you are a good friend?
- LOL, ask my friends


015. Have you ever been two faced or betrayed one of your friends?
- NEVER EVER. Hindi ako yung palaglag. If you're friends with me, you're friends for life. \m/

- Love/Lust -

01. What do you personally think about love?
- I don't think about it. LOL maybe that's why I have no love life. =))

02. Have you ever experienced it?
- IDK, why don't you ask the love fairy? :P

03. If not, do you think about it a lot and want to find it?
- See part 2, number 1.


04. How do you think you know when you're in love?
- IDK, just feel it, I guess.

- Lots of important things in life, bro. It's important but it doesn't take precedence over everything else.

02:30 PM - 04:00 PM   German 10 THX1    German 10 THX1       

Thank GOD I don't have to prerog this time around which is actually an achievement for me since sophomores normally are lowest priority and have the shittiest schedules. But I will anyway for a PE slot para naman maranas ko ang pagpe-prerog. XD

I guess it's all a matter of luck and timing; I swear if I didn't pick majors this sem siguro mga 9 units lang ako. -___- Plus I owe part of my luck to the multiple-class enlistment technique my good friend Lance taught me last sem. :D

OK, I've explained my majors already in my latest album. TTh are my no-bullshit days. Guess I'll have to seek out Ma'am Jurilla and ask her if she could cut me some slack since I'm coming from the auditorium of the College of Science before her class every other day. Three straight classes and an hour-and-a-half break between those and my last class of the day/s isn't so bad lalo na since sanay naman ako sa ganyang set-up. :)

Keri lang naman siguro ang AS 1. I like art anyway and am willing to learn kahit na madugo ang readings... which they probably are. *shudder* German 10... wunderbar! XD I actually wanted Italian 10 more but what the hell, German is a pretty manly language anyway. XDDD

CW 100 I'm pretty scared of because even though I'll be having 3 profs for that subject alone my first prof will be Sir Jose Claudio "Butch" Guerrero (LF PEOPLE HELP DX) na mahilig daw magbigay ng 4... not sure if any of this is true. -___- (AGAIN, LF PEOPLE HELP, TOTOO BA TO?)

CWTS (Community Training Welfare Service) I'm really not sure of because it's a rappelling class and I'm not even sure if I can rappel or have to cancel this class due to health restrictions. I'll ask mom later. XP

That's it for now I guess. :)

100) What POSITIVE thing do you want to say to the person who did this test?
Hi, me! :)

A.I.: Artificial Intelligence

--- er, I mean "American Idol". XD Sorry. Stolen from Diego Santiago. :)

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF...
David Cook?: FTW (For the win). Sorry but balladeers are so 6 seasons ago. We need someone to break the mold. :)
David Archuleta?: OK lang pero he's a one-trick pony. Everything he does he makes into a ballad, which is, you know... not nice. Also, his songs are quite forgettable. Nothing compared to the Cook's renditions of "Always Be My Baby" and "Billie Jean".
Amanda Overmyer?: She was different in a good way, a Janis Joplin for the 21st century. Shame she didn't make it any further, though, but I hear she didn't connect with the crowd any more. C'est la vie, je suppose. :(
Brooke White?: Hate her. No star quality whatsoever.
Jason Castro?: Cool dude because of his dreadlocks and that guitar he almost never leaves home with. :D I liked him in the beginning but hated him towards the end especially since my favorites like Carly Smithson and Michael Johns got the boot.
Ramiele Malubay?: Such a waste. I wanted her to win and break Jasmine Trias' glass ceiling. Too bad she had such shitty song choices, though. -__- She would have been in at least the Top 5.
Carly Smithson?: One of my very favorites. Actually, I wanted her to win AI over David Cook initially simply because she deserved to. Trust me, a singer as good as her did NOT deserve to have only 300+ people buy her album.

Kristy Lee Cook?: Can't stand her, sorry.
David Hernandez?: Would have been O.K. if he wasn't so mediocre.
Syesha Mercado?: She was the dark horse of the season. Actually TBH I didn't really think much of her and thought she'd be one of the first to be eliminated but DAMN... she rose through the ranks faster than any Idol finalist I'd seen.
Michael Johns?: Still can't understand why he got voted out so soon. He was one of the best, although I hated his rendition of "Across The Universe". Hindi bagay eh.
Chikezie?: He was like Brian McKnight or Luther Vandross. I actually thought he'd be in a lot longer. I actually thought Syesha, Kristy and Brooke would get eliminated first. Guess I was wrong.


THIS OR THAT?
Amanda or Ramiele?: Tie. I like them both for different reasons.
Carly or Syesha?: Carly Smithson
David C or David A?: David Cook
Michael or Jason?: Michael Johns
Chikezie or Brooke?: Chikezie. Hate Brooke, HATE HER. DX
Kristy or David H?: David Hernandez. I actually felt sorry for him because he was a gay stripper and making it to at least the semi-finals would have proven that that wasn't all he could do.
Ramiele or Brooke?: Ramiele, I hate Brooke to bits.
Amanda or Carly?: Tie.
Syesha or Chikezie?: Chikezie.
Jason or David Cook?: David Cook
David Hernandez or Michael?: Michael Johns
David Archuleta or Kristy?: David Archuleta

WHAT DO YOU THINK OF...
Carly's tattoos?: Nice. Hella nice. She broke the mold, mos def.

Amanda's hair?: Pretty cool.
David Cook's mad rocking skills?: Not the best rocker in the world, I'll admit, pero pwede pa. :D

Jason's dreads?: Hella cool. His guitar skills were just as.
Brooke's yellow sun dress?: YAWN.
Michael's voice?:" Best ever.
Ramiele's baby-ness?: Pretty cute. I guess it saved her song choices.
Kristy's hoedown "eight days a week"?: Huh?
Amanda getting voted off before Kristy?: Fuck that.
Chikezie's harmonica?: Angas. :)
David Archuleta's adorableness?: BLAH.
Syesha's "Yesterday"?: I think I died listening to it.
Jason's "Meeeeeeeechelle?": Meh
Carly's "Come Together"?: Carly's the one, whatever she sings.
SIMON COWELL?: He's an asshole, but WTH, he's our asshole. :D
Randy?: Blah, but he's got some bitching guitar skills. :)
Paula?: Also blah. I hate yes-people. And I hate Paula now. She's almost as bad as Britney Spears.
Paula's new song & video?: Can't stand Paula.

Sanjaya's crying girl?: Blah.

OTHER.
Remember Alaina Whitaker?: Yeah, can't remember what she sung though.
Do you think Luke Menard was a big joke?: Forgettable... can't even remember what the dude sang.

How much did you love Danny Noriega?: He had a great voice pero ang taray ni bruha eh. Sayang. He would have been a lot more likeable.
Did you laugh at Amy Davis 'cause she was so bad?: Who?
Do you think Kristy Should have made the top 10?: No, Josiah Leming should have.
Is it fair that only the top 10 get to go on tour?: Don't care.
Did you donate to Idol Gives Back?: Nah, IDK how. DX
What was the most number of times you voted in one night?: I don't vote. Sayang sa phone, tag-hirap pa naman sa amin.
For whom did you vote for?: If I could, Carly or Michael Johns
Who is the most obnoxious contestant this season?: Brooke, Kristy Lee, and Danny Noriega.

Did you like Kellie Pickler's performance?: Would have been all right if she weren't so dumb.
What was the most shocking moment this whole season?: 
1. Guys like Amanda Overmyer, Michael Johns, Chikezie Eve, and Carly Smithson getting eliminated over guys like Brooke White and Kristy Lee Cook.

2. Simon's old "girlfriend" from England calling him up on live TV and telling the whole world that she was Simon's first kiss.

3. Paula Abdul's "on crack" moment in the top 4 or top 5, can't remember which.

4. Colton Berry getting picked over Kyle Ensley for the Top 24.

5. Adam Levine from Maroon 5 acting like an asshole in front of the AI audience. Sorry pero hindi ko inakalang ganyan pala siya. :|


How would you have felt if Josiah Leming made it into the top 24?: Elated. He deserved to be there but the one thing I hated about him was the fact that he cried too much.
Who is your favorite idol contestant ever?: Bo Bice

This season?: Michael Johns, Amanda Overmyer, Carly Smithson, and yes, I did like Josiah Leming.
Who's gonna win?: Obviously David Archuleta, but I'm crossing my fingers for David Cook to win.

Light My Fire --- este, Candle. Ay, candles pala. XD


Ok, before I start greeting people, commercial lang muna: as of this moment I will no longer be as active on Multiply as I have been for the longest while. Granted, I will still be posting on this blog, but not as often as before. I will be more accessible on my Blogspot, novemberunderground. Please do not hesitate to leave comments or write stuff in the Shoutbox. :D Thanks! :)

Anyway...

My cake's pretty big this time around because I know a lot of you guys are celebrating their birthdays this merry month of May.

So I'd like to start off by greeting my high school friends Geoff del Rosario and Ap Sanchez a happy birthday this May 16th! :D They're both turning 19 today. :)

A belated happy birthday to my orgmate Gene Flores who celebrated her birthday the other day, May 14. :)

AND (sinasama ko na lahat kasi hasel ang mag-luto ng maraming-maraming cake) a very happy birthday in advance to the following:

My orgmate Isa Salonga and my grade school friend Oxy Occena, who are both turning another year older this May 19th;

My orgmate Viki Pulta who'll be blowing out her candles this May 21;

My high school friend Enzo Montano and my orgmate Joy Salvio who are celebrating their birthdays this May 24th;

AND last and not the least, a huge holla to my boys Duey Guison and Luigi Aganon, not to mention my high school orgmate Miguel Santillan, who are all celebrating their birthdays this May 29th.

O, guys, eto na regalo ko sa inyo ha. Pasensyahan na lang, tag-hirap ngayon eh. Rice crisis, rice crisis. :(
