An attempt to purge a little bit

All of a sudden, I woke from slumber

The rays of the sun pierced my eyes

Sleep lured me back in

Eyes open

Eyes close

The same old pattern

Another five minutes

Another three minutes

Time’s wasting

Two clicks

One more click

Water gushing 

Splashes waking me up

An assembly line starts

Piece by piece

Trivial, petty things eating up time

I don’t want to forget this

I want to do this

Remember to follow up

A routine seems to be set

Chasing dreams

Losing time

Looking forward

Hiding the fear

Hopes of stability

A wave that can be seen on the horizon

In the middle of this pulsating world

You just want to feed off the energy

Be allured by travel

Enticed by creative sparks

To slow down a bit

Just take in the moment

That’s all we need

Fuck Yeah Philippines!

Some insightful lessons from Wieden+Kennedy’s Executive Creative Director, John C Jay. Via AIGA.
1: Be authentic. The most powerful asset you have is your individuality, what makes you unique. It’s time to stop listening to others on what you should do.  2: Work harder than anyone else and you will always benefit from the effort.  3: Get off the computer and connect with real people and culture. Life is visceral.  4: Constantly improve your craft. Make things with your hands. Innovation in thinking is not enough.  5: Travel as much as you can. It is a humbling and inspiring experience to learn just how much you don’t know.  6: Being original is still king, especially in this tech-driven, group-grope world.  7: Try not to work for stupid people or you’ll soon become one of them. 8: Instinct and intuition are all-powerful. Learn to trust them.  9: The Golden Rule actually works. Do good.  10: If all else fails, No. 2 is the greatest competitive advantage of any career.

I was finally able to get a copy of Serbis on DVD. I’ve read quite a number of reviews about it so even if I may have been influenced by some of the criticisms, I liked the movie a lot. I loved the cinematography and I think the story is unique enough to pull you in. For some reason, I saw traces of Gus Van Sant and Wong Kar-Wai in the visual style of the film. Nevertheless, I think the film captures several facets of Philippine culture. In my opinion, the strength of Brillante Mendoza lies in his subtle yet brutally honest storytelling. He painted a clear picture of the decay of poverty in the “family cinema.” Amidst the pornography and sexual services shown throughout the film, the tragedy of a broken family lingers like a quiet storm hovering nearby. Bottom line is that this movie grabs your attention be it out of sheer shock or love for the Neo-realism style of the director. You’re the voyeur so allow the peek show to unravel.
