Not-So-Kind August

I'm not in the mood for introductions right now so let's get going.

  • Enjoyed watching the recent Olympics and found myself cheering for Russia most of the time. Not that I didn't support our country. It's just that the sports I look forward to (such as Synchronized Swimming and Gymnastics) every Olympics didn't have a Philippine representative.
  • My family was lucky that the flood didn't fully enter the house during Habagat but the rainy season had left us with damp stuffs due to dripping ceilings. This led us to have some sort of general cleaning that also led me to find things I thought I lost and things I didn't know I posses in the first place. I was also surprised to realize that I've been hiding a lot of coins all over the house. I think I found more than a hundred pesos all in all. Haha.
  • I promise myself to watch every Academy Awards Best Picture nominee that I will encounter. This month I was able to watch Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close (2011) directed by Stephen Daldry. Good story and good plot. I love Oskar Schell's character (played by Thomas Horn). I think   Horn is someone to watch out for. In fact, he has won twice in Phoenix Film Critics Society for Breakthrough Performance on Camera and Best Performance by a Youth in a Lead or Supporting Role - Male. My next stop would be Inglorious Bastards.
  • Made sure that I've accomplished certain things before I resume my job hunting (haven't been able to do it due to bad weather). I've also cut my hair as if that matters.

Here are the not-so-kind parts:
  • For days, I've been depressed for I was blaming myself for a loss of a guinea pig and death of a kitten and I wasn't even responsible for those things. It's just that I kept on thinking the might have beens. If it was an ideal situation, I could have saved and adopted them.
  • After that phase, another one followed. This time I was faced with an old enemy of mine and it's none other than my self. I was consumed by self-loathing, shame, disappointments, frustrations and the like. Not to mention a series of painful memories came crashing down. Basically, I was miserable but I'm doing good now. I'm get used to this phase but it's still difficult every time. Ahh, my vicious mental and emotional cycle.
  • And guess what? My insomnia has gotten worse. I always woke every afternoon. Damn it! I'll make sure I'll fix that soon.

I hope September would be kinder. 

I realized the photos I'm posting for the previous months are way irrelevant for my posts. Anyway, the one above was taken from my Flicker.


Favorite MVs (the old ones)

I've been thinking of what to blog without recycling my old photos until I thought of music videos. So today I will post my top 5 fave music videos. I decided to divide them from my old faves to the recent ones (which I will post some other time). So here are the old ones. Enjoy!

Cry Me A River - Justin Timberlake
Apparently some kind of a stalker video. This is also one of my favorite JT's songs. I've always like the idea of sneaking around. Haha. Reminds me that we should always lock our doors because we never really know. Better yet, if money is not an issue, install a CCTV camera.

Forever - The Veronicas
There is also an Australlian MV with the Pop version of the song but I prefer this American version with a rock-ish rendition of the song. I love you Jessica (the blonde one)! This video satisfies the rebel in me. Mom, can I atend a party like this? Haha.

Paralyzer - Finger Eleven
A thought provoking song with a choreography which I'll never get tired of watching. It's nice to see the dancers performing with those generic office attires.

White Flag - Dido
A classic favorite. Though you can apply the song lyrics to the video itself, it tells me otherwise: that they are stalking each other without them knowing. :) It also stars David Boreanaz (the actor who played Special FBI Agent Seely Booth in my favorite crime series, Bones).

And my top favorite music video is ....

Frozen - Madonna
This is also my most favorite MV of hers. The video is just LOVE. From the concept to the special effects to her costume and make-up (a definite peg for future costume party). Did I mention I'm in love with her Mehndi

I started thinking that since I've posted about MVs, I might as well post my local, gothic, jrock/jpop, krock/kpop videos some other time. I hope you'll watch out for those. :)
