Good Morning!

come home practically all
is nearly forgiven

almost everything
could be forgotten

good morning

sometimes I wish you were here
weather permitting

right thoughts, right words, right action
this time, same as before
I’ll love you forever
—”Right Action” by Franz Ferdinand

Official video for Franz Ferdinand’s lead single from their new album, Right Thoughts, Right Words, Right Action. Yay! The sound kind of reminds me of beaches—raunchy pop-rock is the closest I can come to a description—but the signature Franz Ferdinand uniqueness is still all over the place. The video is very nice and I watched it over and over again; it made me hungry for eggs, haha!

OK so this is just going to be a quick post about happenings & things. Much like the rest of the posts on this here blog, yes. LOL.

This morning was generally a good one: the weather has returned to dark-sunglasses weather, I had marvelous bacon for breakfast (first time in my home life, I believe; I was never a fan before, but I sure am now!), and my literary analysis paper for my Lit Crit class came back with a perfect score, plus approving comments from the totally awesome professor. Of course there were snags: I had diarrhea (possibly from the bacon but I dare say it was worth it), I ran totally late for class, and my friend’s grandmother died. That last one really took some things from the morning.

But anyway, all that’s there and has happened. The morning was good; I hope the day stays good all throughout. And that my tinnitus—the bells now having taken shelter in both ears like fuck man—goes away soon. (not a good ending but meh)

New Music From My Indie Heroes

so it’s over
I didn’t realize

it’s so much colder
but it was no surprise
did you ever get to know me?
’cause it has never been so plain to see

’cause every day since you left me
I thought less and less of you

and I’ve worn out all the reasons
to keep on knocking at your door
could be the changing of the seasons
but I don’t love you anymore
—”Changing Of The Seasons” by Two Door Cinema Club

Brand new material from Two Door Cinema Club! This one is from their upcoming EP of the same title. I absolutely love this song! First heard of it a few weeks ago, from my fellow indie kid Jandel.. And I fell in love with it instantly. Seriously, check out the lyrics. This is the song of my broken but mending heart, man (naks). This track has gained a sure spot on the tracklist of the last mix CD I’m making her.

Oh and have I mentioned how much I love this band? No? Well, here’s what happeed: I first saw them when I was in high school, on MTV; at the time, they were the Push artists for the month (or something like that). Their latest video then was “I Can Talk”. To be honest, I wasn’t hooked at all on that song, but I decided to give them a shot anyway, since I needed a new artist to listen to. Then I heard “Undercover Martyn” and “Costume Party”, and that did it for me. Since they were such a new artist and so painfully indie, it was excruciatingly difficult to hunt down their music online.. But thanks to my download prowess (naks! but seriously, I have this thing with indie and downloading), I found their EP Four Words To Stand On, and their first full-length album Tourist History, and wasted no time downloading it. It changed my life, honestly. Never was I more thankful for the advent of the internet and online downloads. I love them to bits, up to this day.

And also, they’re coming to the Philippines this November!! Jandel had somewhat jokingly(?) invited me to watch with him, so maybe I’ll try to be serious about saving up. The tickets are sure to be pricey, but it’s nice to have something to look forward to and make an effort for, even if futilely.

You’ve come a long way, TDCC. Cheers!

Tuwing Umuulan, Masarap Magbalibag Ng Upuan

Last week, kung kelan nagiba ang mga aspaltong kalsada at lumampas sa taas ng tao ang baha sa lakas ng ulan, hindi nagsuspinde ng klase ang UP Baguio Naming Mahal. Hindi ako pumasok nun, kasi hindi pa nga naman ako makaakyat. Aba, paano ba makakarating ng Baguio ang bus ng Victory kung walang matinong kalsadang madaanan? Dahil dun, ilang klase ang na-absenan ko, bilang hindi naman sila nagsuspinde (maliban sa iba kong klase, na kinansela ng mga mismong prof, pero isang araw lang din yun).

Ngayon, andito na ulit ako sa Baguio. Kaaakyat ko lang kahapon, kahit may papasok na namang bagyo (letter N na, Nando ang pangalan). Ubos na kasi ang absences na pupwede para sa’kin ngayong semester; pag sumobra ako maski isa lang, mafo-force drop ako sa lahat ng klase ko. Mabuti na rin naman at hindi masyadong malakas ang ulan. Nagkaron naman ng pasok kahapon, kaya napagtanto ko’ng kaya ko na’ng tiisin ang paglabas sa ganitong klase ng panahon. Ambon-ambon lang naman, at hindi rin masyadong malakas ang hangin.

Kaso, nagsuspinde sila ng klase.

Kung kailan walang masyadong ulan, at hindi makabali ng patpat ang hangin, saka sila nagsuspinde. Kung kailan nakabalik na ako, kahit ayaw pa akong payagan ng magulang ko bumiyahe dahil nga may bagyo na namang paparating. Kung kailan gumising ako ng maaga para lang hindi mahuli sa unang klase ko ngayong araw, na isa sa mga iilang dahilan kung bakit hindi pa ako umaalis na lang ng unibersidad na ‘to (na sobrang nakakadisilusyon btw).

Ang masasabi ko sa takbo ng mga kaganapang ito ay: putangina lang alam mo yun.

Time To Sexy Dance

Teaser for Daft Punk’s next single “Lose Yourself To Dance” from their latest album Random Access Memories.

This teaser was shown in the last few minutes of this year’s MTV VMAs. The embedded video is from the offical VEVO account of Daft Punk. Therefore, this is not a hoax. I repeat, this is not a hoax. (and if it was, it’s a flawless one)

Excuse me while I go smother my fangirl screams with my pillow

On Twitter #2: On Conversations, & Humans vs. Adoring Crowds

As usual, last tweet is chronologically first.
