Summer Screenshot 6: Adele

Rolling Stones for Adele

The April issue of Rolling Stone will have the face of that girl who basically nails your heartbreak story in her songs. Even though she said that she doesn't make music for eyes but for ears, cmon, look at her face. Really, cmon. That should give her plus points. 

As if she needs it though. Check where her confidence comes and tell me you don't agree with her.

Summer Screenshot 4: Triangle

Locally released as Ghost Ship. I don't know if the change of title is due to an advertising stint or just plain mockery to local audience's intellect. But remembering the movie, I'm pretty much sure it's the former. 

The plot was laboriously written but there were a lot of loopholes. Still, it's some entertaining waste of 2 hours of your summer. 

P.S. It's not a new movie. It was actually first screened in 2009.

P.P.S. It's not the movie Ghost Ship (2002) in this link

342:1 ratio -
Cadaver-to-seagull in the movie. Or loopholes-to-movie. Whatever

Dedicated to that one guy who practically made instructional videos for guys like me on how to feel. Happy 36th birthday. 

Summer Screenshot 2: Catfish

Personally, this is the documentary that had the most impact. I used to have an online relationship myself, and I'm glad it only brings me good memories. If you haven't watched this, please do.

Litratista in Luneta

At the Rizal Park (Luneta). This picture was taken by Mang Joni, one of the many photographers you can see in the park. 

We were fortunate enough to see how they manually develop their pictures. Seeing the process and hearing his story really gives a deeper appreciation to the somewhat meaningless picture we have in the park. Sad thing is that there are approximately 120 photographers like him in there and most park visitors now have their means of getting their own pictures, so most of the photographers either find a better-paying job or find other stints. Mang Joni is lucky because he get to be the official photographer for tourists sometimes, which pays better. But on regular days, he gets to endlessly walk in the park to find people who are willing to be photographed--retro style. 

Click on the caption of Mang Joni's picture to see the video. And visit Rizal Park to have your own adventure.

Summer Screenshot 1: American History X

I loved this film the first time I watched it years ago. I managed to get a copy again and I remember why.

A poem in my wall

In the midst of thriving, breaking
into the realm of all earthly possibilities--
Amid the dark light of
disconcerting pain, troubling hopes, and weeping fate.

As when the crashing waves and the billowing winds
Forcibly weakens his human heart
Casting it under nature's spell
(all artificial)
But never wanes.

For it belongs to a man who offers his human heart
to seek for his wondering joy
Across the seas, the mountains
far away from the land of promises
to a place not barren with love.

It is not now, but isn't not-ever
Knowing one day, soon 
He shall face the smiling grace of Chance
Only to break down and weep
Shattered with fulfillment and raging adulation

"I am home
and I am here to stay."
