The only reason why we should vote (from a cynic’s point of view)

Unrealized expectations. Broken promises. Cheating. Trusting and un-trusting politicians is like realizing you have come to your senses and have come from a bad place–only to have returned again and again. I know that we shouldn’t believe anything on the internet, but at this point in time, especially in the free media, the one making us alive are not just the readers, but most importantly, … Continue reading The only reason why we should vote (from a cynic’s point of view)

Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1/LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun.: Nostalgia potency at purest

Hello, my fellow (The) Smashing Pumpkins fans! I’m sorry for this late album review. To be honest, I was flaky about writing it.

Hola, Catriona, my new bias and my thoughts to her winning answer

I bet everyone is celebrating now that the Philippines just won its 4th Miss Universe crown, care of Catriona Gray. I’m not a hardcore pageants fan, but when it comes to the Miss Universe, I support whoever the Philippines’ bet is. I would watch the show accordingly and also have my own bets aside from Miss Philippines. To be honest, I have not followed Catriona … Continue reading Hola, Catriona, my new bias and my thoughts to her winning answer

Thank U, Ari. Looking forward to your next!

I can’t contain it. I just really love this girl, Ariana! As an older millennial (okay I admit it), I grew up listening to bubble pop, mellow, boyband and girlband pop, grunge, soul, and r&b. That’s farfetched from all the EDM tunes and even the synth-pop, electronic/soul haze, and folk-pop music that are currently dominating pop music. This trend makes me deviate from what usual … Continue reading Thank U, Ari. Looking forward to your next!

Circa 2016-2017: Activism Amplified

How on earth did a consumerist pig and a highly extroverted person like me get my activist sensibilities? Nope, it’s not because of my UP Education. Ayutthaya In June of 2015, I had a trip to Thailand. As a highly paradoxical country, Bangkok offers a wide range of activities that every tourist can enjoy. After all the wild partying in Bangkok, I spent my last … Continue reading Circa 2016-2017: Activism Amplified

I love showbiz. Unlike a lot of the people with the same demographics, I don’t consider showbiz as a guilty pleasure. I simply am a massive fan of the industry. Everyone knows that my bias is the ALDUB loveteam, among other mainstream actors and indie/character actors.

Gregorio del Pilar already became a prominent figure during the revolution against the Spaniards even before the battle in Tirad Pass (vs. the Americans).
