sabado nights

isang gabing tulad rin nito nang tanungin ko ang aking boyfriend kung bakit hindi na niya ako dine-date. sa aming dalawa kasi, ako ang palalabas. ang mahilig sa coffee at beer. sa pa-morningan na inuman. sa lakarang wala namang katuturan. mga three to four years ago, pakiramdam ko loser ako kung wala akong lakad kapag sabado. nagmumukmok ako sa bahay kapag ganun, nakikipag-chat, sumusubok na makipag-hook up. naaalala ko pa, nuong nasa dyaryo pa ako naging ugali ko na ang dumiretso sa restawran pagkatapos ng trabaho. isang platong sisig, mainit-init na rice, mga tatlong order ng coke. pagkatapos yosi sabay segue sa inuman. solb. no wonder lumobo ako ng todo todo. nuong lumipat naman ako sa tv prod, naging ugali ng mga kaibigan kong magbabad sa meat shop habang ang mga editor namin ay nagdi-digitize ng aming mga na-shoot. at nung nagka-crush ako sa isang editor, pati siya niyaya na rin namin sa inuman in the hopes of... what? never mind. may live-in girlfriend na siya ngayon. minsan nga…

As the opening credits of The Social Network flashed on screen, Rochelle and I immediately spotted a familiar name.

"Buhay pa si Trent Reznor," I told Rochelle.

"Wow, kilala mo si Trent Reznor."

Owel, there goes our age.

I seriously loved The Social Network. Lately, I've been loving David Fincher's work although Benjamin Button bored me to bits (it felt like a prestige project, I much prefer Zodiac). It also helped that I already had a huge crush on Jesse Eisenberg ever since I saw him in Adventureland, which I thought was a hell lot better than 500 Days of Summer (I thought that movie was phony though I fell madly in love with Joseph Gordon Levitt --- I know I prefer my men skinny and a bit nerdy). Right after the movie, I immediately googled Mark Zuckerberg and Sean Parker and boy they should both send the casting director gifts because they sure don't look like Jesse and Justin. I assume that Justin was cast because the character should have effortless…

Something from the book I'm currently trying to read

"One single moment comes closest to summing up my friendship with Juno. It's the moment I've experienced many times since, but the first instance I was aware of took place on those cliffs on the west side of the Hudson River. We'd been hiking strenuously and were taking a rest. We were sitting on a rock, looking out over the river toward Yonkers. It was a perfect sping day, brilliant sky, new leaves and grasses, fragnant breezes. We felt good.

After a while, I began to realize that the dog and I were sharing a thought. It wasn't anything special or complicated --- it was something a man could think and a dog could think. It was something like... 'Ahhh!'"

Today is a Friday. “My cat is trying to make out with me,” tweeted Susan Orlean from New York. “If It puts you down… trash it,” said Ricky Martin (or in his native tongue “si no te hace bien [en la vida]… pa’la basura”). Neil Gaiman, on the other hand, announced that he loves “bad old dinosaur theme parks.” All these while Carlos Celdran tweets from Manila, once again courting controversy by tweeting: “there is scandal in the churches of Intramuros, a revolution in the minds of the people and a Galleon…”

Yesterday, before I went to work, I typed in that I’m “always looking for my next obsession.” This Twitter thing is definitely a curious thing.

Meron akong fifteen movies...

1.The Baby Sitter

I think this is the very first porn I saw. Hindi ko siya makakalimutan dahil isang batalyon yata kami na magkakaibigan nagsiksikan sa isang maruming couch habang excited na pinapanood ang mga nagkakangkangan sa TV. Imporkrita pa ako noon. kunwari pang tinatakpan ko ang mata ko ng kamay ko pero nakabukas naman yung mga daliri. Nang dahil sa movie na ito, napapangisi ako every time na may nagbabanggit ng baby sitter... Wahahaha!

2. Lord of the Rings: The Fellowship of the Ring

I so fell in love with this movie that I simply refused to get out of the theater. Pagkatapos noon naghanap talaga ako ng libro at hindi tumigil hanggang natapos ko ang Return of the King. I felt like I was Frodo, frail and seemingly helpless, but still pursuing his task to the darkest parts of Mordor.



3. The English Patient

This movie cemented my obsession with Ralph Fiennes (I first saw him in Robert Redford's Quiz). And because I was so obsessed with Ralph Fiennes I started reading the book fr…
