i've been clicking the 'create' for the past few days but when the blanks space shows, i just can't think of anything to write.
first week in beda. actually it has been just three days because of the slow enrollment problem, i mean proccess, beda had me going through.
the first two paragraphs that you've just read was written seven days ago. that's a major bummer. anyway, i really have to catch up with my posts.
yesterday, artistang artlets (the official theater guild of the faculty of arts and lettets of the university of santo tomas) held its auditions for aspiring applicants. around 60 or so came, including krizzy, someone who joined starstruck before.
i remember how nervous i was when i was the one who were in their places. last year lang yun. and now i am the one grading them.
the auditions had many parts. here are the highlights.
applicants must introduce themselves creatively, yung tipong matatandaan namin sila agad. haha, i remember what i did last year. humiga ako flat on my back and sang 'fallin' by alicia keys. haha. wierdo.
so there they were, the applicants. i saw the usual question mark on their faces. the same question mark i wore last year.
at first, no one really did anything creative. they just stood there and told us who they were. duh? san yung creative dun?
eventually they got the idea.
ofcourse we members wouldn't give the spotlight to the applicants alone. like last year, tinapatan ng members ang mga intro ng mga applicants.
dancer. there was this girl who wanted to show how good she is in dancing. enter angge, who effortlessly showed her who was better. walang kahira-hirap, angge did what the applicant was trying to do (e.g. touch her head with her feet) with ease. pati si avery nag bending nang walang kalaban laban. winner: angge and avery.
singing. through the fire? one girl tried to sing her lungs out. i prodded seh to tell her who's boss, so she did. when seh stood up and sang, the applicant tried to fight back by singing a higher part. seh sang the highest part without any effort. winner: seh.
choir songs. one girl tried to sing a choral piece. enter me and avery. haha. blended a russian song that we learned last year. winner: us.
acting. girlfriend vs. boyfriend. girlfriend, applicant. boyfriend, gabso. winner: boyfriend.
haha. it was fun.
the applicants were divided into their chosen aspects. acting, production management, directing, technicals, script writing, and production design. and as i am wearing an ID with production design written below my name, i am assuming that i will be teaching prod design.
actually, acting talaga ang ipinasa ko sa artistang artlets, eh kumusta naman ang twice kong costumes staff? malamang nyan sa prod design na nga ako ilagay.
ayon, project runway all over the room. lecture muna then we let the applicants make a production proposal by showing us their stage concepts, the costumes and the make-up.
rainbow. one wizard with rainbow trails. enk. at weather control daw ang powers nya. major enk.
over external testicles. one wizard who looks like lotus feet with big red testicles on both of his sides. enk.
the interview part was really important. dito malalaman kung ano talaga ang gustong mangyari ng mga applicants na ito.
kuya diego kept on telling me that i was a 'bitchirero', haha. maybe i am. one interviewee cried, and she's from taytay like me. haha. what would happen kaya pag palagi ko siyang makasabay pauwi. hmm.
all in all it, the auditions was successful. had a great time, and i hope the applicants did so to.
we stayed for a drinking session for a while at tapsi manila. had a bottle of booze and left.

yesterday was THE independence day.
june 12, monday. everybody was supposed to be in school or at work, but because it was THE independence day, most of us were at home, watching some tv (maybe even that basketball game where Shaq scored a measly five).
well, THE independence day is not being recognized for what it's worth.
it pisses me off. i sent this message to all of my friends and some acquantances (it helps to be unlimited, lakas ko sa globe) and some of them replied with really really loserly remarks. here is what i remember of the message that i have sent.
-naisip mo ba? na independence day ngayon? ah, oo.. kasi walang pasok? pero hindi mo ba naiisip na walang pilipinas kung hindi ito pinaglaban ng ating mga bayani? na walang PINOY kung hindi sila nanindigan.. ngayon, naisip mo na ba? na independence day ngayon and hindi lang basta walang pasok?
happy independence day sayo.-
of course the original text of this was in text language. anyway, some people replied and said, 'hindi, wala lang talagang pasok' and 'cinecelebrate pa ba yon?'
argh! major grrness. is this how we see independence day now? an excuse to ditch office or school? don't we even at least remember how hard it was for those who came before us? how they have suffered under countries? and how hard they have fought for this country to be free?
it's been a hundred and eight years since that day our flag was waved in kawit, cavite. 108 years, compared to some 300 years we were under spain's command, and some 50 more years under other countries.
the numbers here are just what i have remembered from highschool history. i am not sure about it. what i am sure about is that being independent was so precious for the people who went before us. the people who actually fought hard for it. tapos we'll just neglect the single day that we celebrate it.
at least try to show respect. at least try to remember our heroes and their fight for independence.

kung ikaw ay mayaman
ako nama'y namayam
ikaw ay mabait
ako'y di makakailang tiabam
ako'y di hamak na onilat
kung ikaw ay nasa taas
tila ako'y pilit na nasa saat
wala kang kasing kisig
ako nama'y tila gisik
ika'y ubod ng tikas
pero ako nama'y tila sakit
kung baga ika'y langit
ako nama'y tignal
kaya siguro hindi
ang ating pagkaka-intindi
iba ka, iba ako
tila magkabaligtad tayo
ika'y aking mahal
at ako'y iyong laham
at kahit baliktarin ko ang noon
noon parin yon, hindi ngayon.

it's been a while since i have last posted. been busy with school stuff. and get this, i haven't enrolled yet. tsk. pesky papers.
anyway, i am in the mood for a little tagalog in my post today, so here goes.
KAGABI (woot woot)
kagabi, meron akong naririnig na 'woot woot' sa may likod ng bahay. para siyang cross between a cow, a pig, and a goose (yung tunog). wala lang. medyo natakot lang kasi ako. hindi ko kasi alam kung anong hayop ang gumagawa ng tunog na ganun. creepy.
kanina naman, pumunta ako sa pinaka unang GA (general assembly) ng AA (artistang artlets). syempre sa UST (university of santo tomas) yun. pero hindi tunkol sa GA (general assembly) ang gusto kong pag-usapan, kundi tunkol sa isang t-shirt.
alam niyo ba yung t-shirt na BROWN na W.I.L.D. (walang acronym toh, nawiwili lang ako sa parenthesis) yung nakalagay? W.I. sa harap at L.D. sa likod? medyo laganap na kasi yung shirt na yun. una ko siyang nakita sa may megamall, suot (malamang) ng isang nilalang. natuwa naman ako at plinanong bumili ng ganito. pero habang naglalakad, may nakasalubong pa ulit akong isa pang lalaking nakasuot ng parehong shirt. parehong araw toh ha.
okay pa naman. pero ayoko nang bilhin yung shirt.
mga ilang araw makalipas, dito mismo sa rizal, nakita ko na naman ang shirt na ito. mantakin mo nga naman. tatlong beses ata. isang beses sa mamang naka-sakay sa tricycle. sunod sa nakasalubong kong nilalang. at ang last ay ang nagde-deliver ng tubig samin.
at kanina sa UST (university of santo tomas), may nakita parin akong naka-W.I.L.D. (wala paring acronym) na shirt.
ito lang naman ang mga posibilidad eh.
una, baka sobrang sikat nang design nito. pang-masa baga.
ikalawa, yung mga nakikita kong tao na nakasuot ng W.I.L.D. (last na, natutuwa talaga ako sa parenthesis) shirt ay iisa. nagkakataon lang na palagi ko siyang nakikita.
kaw mag-isip kung ano dyan ang tama.
naaalala ko lang ang mga running jokes na kumakalat sa cellphone ngayon. yan kasi ang pinag-uusapan kanina sa meeting eh (nung wala na masyadong ginagawa).
gems yap. few lo pascual. many pacquiao. diba?
hawak ko ngayon ang cellphone. may narecieve akong message na gusto kong i-share sa lahat.
kapag ang pinoy ay naging kano.
wala pa naman akong balak para bukas. pero baka bumalik ako sa san beda. magmamadali na ako.
gusto ko nang mag-enroll.
