In Hopes That It Will Be a True Good Film (A Ranting Essay on the Philippine Film Industry)

Curious and Befuddled

Last 16th of August, 2014, a familiar face came about within the school grounds of the University of Sto. Tomas.

marian 1 Marian Rivera at ‘Bad Ang Sinungaling’ shooting site (UST) rhyzza Rhyzza Mae Dizon at ‘Bad Ang Sinugnaling’ shooting site (UST)

It was Marian Rivera and Rhyzza Mae Dizon!


Rejoice! Rejoice! A celebrity! How fun, exciting!




Apparently, it was a shooting for a scene from an upcoming 2015 MMFF film entitled Bad And Sinungaling. Now, I have totally no idea what the plot of this film is going to be, but judging by the actors and the crew gathered, I am not psyched at all.

Starting up with Vic Sotto, Marian Rivera, and Rhyzza Mae Dizon as (most probably) the main cast, and end it with the director of photography, Lee Meily, and director Marlon Rivera, I can only see the bleak future of the Philippine film…

Different beings by Lea Guangko

it is odd to think how different we may be

from the way we think, the way we eat

the way we talk, and how we sleep

i like staying in, and you don’t

you’d rather be out there, while i stay at home

i like ketchup on my fries, you like them plain

you love the sun, while i love the rain

you sleep with the lights on, i sleep better when it’s dark

i say you’re a coward, you disagree

i was just kidding, can’t you see???

your handwriting is ugly, that’s how messed up you are

but, i am a neat freak, you are the messiest person i’ve met so far

nonetheless, i still can see

all the beauty in your wormy brain

that’s why we’re here, to keep each other sane

this is how we are, and i don’t think this will ever change

like the sun and moon, we’ll wait until we finally collide

this is beautiful, i must say

we may be very different beings, but i wish for you to stay.

The Saviour That Lurks Beneath The Sea


A lullaby by the waters

I sat on the edge of a dock

Fell asleep and into the ocean

At 12O’Clock


It felt like a sort of sensation

Falling into the waves

Changing chromatically

The colors fade beneath the surface


The deep served a largeness

Like shadow or silhouette

Moving slow and steady

I begin to lose my breath


And so, from the middle of the shadow

Came a diamond light

With brightness steady and strong

I should be feeling joy, not fright


I hear a voice from the center

Of ethereal tone

And tells me I am saved

I’ve drifted to the sand and stone

I awoke to sight of a beach

And a sight of a behemoth by the sea

Swimming to the horizontal beyond

And when I knew, it was early morning at 3

How come Sunset is Red?

by Kristen Anne Uy, 3AD-7

The sunset shines upon the ground,

With people standing, staring, astound,

The colors soaking into them,

The art evoking heart in them.

I find them very pretty

I watch them glisten upon my city

But I always see myself ponder in bed

Why oh why are they color red

When the time has come for sun to veer

The sunlight goes through more of the atmosphere

Light scatters and only shades of red pass our eyes so clear

And that learning, I will share to my peers

Do You Hear It? Every Night, The Universe Is Singing To God!

In the nineteenth psalm, David tells us “the heavens declare the glory of God” (Psalm 19:1) – and indeed, the stars can take our breath away. In the right light, they can even give us a sense of God’s incredible power and love for us. But more than just their vision, it is said that all of creation sings. Medieval and Renaissance poets talked of “the music of the spheres,” and our seven notes in music come from 7 days in a week and 7 (classically identified) planets, that biblical divine number of completion. How little did we know how true it was – the incredible music the planets sing to God! Read more at

I agree with mother and I searched for the availability of the sounds.

Downloading this video is the simplest way like using an online downloader like ClipConverter.

I found them downloadable, too in a peer-to-peer network. Download Nasa Voyager Space Sounds using a Torrent sharing client like Vuse.


IT’S OVER!!! The Fight Is Over!!

Thanks  for sharing this video,

I am surprised by the conclusion arrived at by the author of this video and need to repeat viewing it so I can fully grasp the arguments presented; however, at first viewing it does make sense.

To our readers, watch the video so you, too, can conclude if the author is correct in claiming “IT’S OVER!!! The Fight Is Over!!” Carina Bonalos like this.
