the chase

kaninang umaga, yung tricycle na sinakyan ko ay may nasabitan na puting Toyota Fortuner. eh ang sisteng driver ng tricycle, aba! sumibat! nagmistula tuloy na car chase sa isang local na action film ang nangyari (nagsimula tumutog ang George Estregan Explosion ng RASP sa isipan ko nung mga oras na iyon). ang pinagtataka ko lang eh hindi naabutan ng isang bagong bagong Fortuner ang isang kalawanging motor. nung malapit na kami sa PRC (kung saan talaga naka istasyon ang mga traysi, at huling babaan ng mga pasahero) eh lumiko sa isang iskinita si manong driver. pinababa kami baka daw mahuli pa sya. dapat pala eh kinonyatan ko sya sa ulo bago ako umalis dahil nadamay pa kaming mga pobreng pasahero sa kagaguhan niya. medyo nagitla din kasi ako sa mga nangyari. anyway, at least buhay pa ako. naka pag post pa nga ako sa blog ko 'di ba?!

antayin ko na lang makarma si manong...tae sya.

the play

“I’m standing on
the stage
of fear and self-doubt;

it’s a hollow play;
but they’ll clap anyway...”

"There is love of course.
And then there's life, its enemy..."

now, let me paraphrase
that for you Mr. Anouilh

"There is love of course.
And then there's life,
its motherf**king enemy..."

...and guess is winning.
now, please excuse me while i bite my fist.

...I don't want to push my chips forward and go out and meet something I don't understand. A man would have to put his soul at hazard. He'd have to say, "O.K., I'll be part of this world."

portrait of an artist after meal


The tragedy in his life already existed. To love an atmospheric spirit. That was the real sorrow. Hopelessness itself. Nowhere on the printed page, nowhere in the annals of man, would her name appear: no local habitation, no name. There are girls like that, he thought, and those you love most, the ones where there is no hope because it has eluded you at the very moment you close your hands around it.
— Chapter 14, A Scanner Darkly (1977) by Philip K. Dick

...and yes, this is about you...whoever you are.
