Lupain ng Pagkaalipin, Lupain ng Kalayaan Isang pagtatangka sa pagsasalin ng “Land of Bondage, Land of the Free” ni Raul Manglapus Noong araw, may pag-aari ang Tao na kapirasong lupa. Iyon lamang ang kanyang pag-aari. Ngunit iyon ay kanyang minahal, sapagkat ibinigay nito ang tatlong bagay na kanyang ikinalulugod: unang-una’y kabuhayan, at kalayaan, at di […]
Let’s deal with a few karaoke staples, just because I feel like it.
Did I mention I’m incredibly bored this long weekend?
I hate my last song syndromes. Just because I feel like it: Paghanga Lang Jennifer Paige, “Crush” Ahhh… kras… ahhh… Sa hangin ka pa humalik Di kailangang magsaliksik Para maintindihan ang nangyayari sa atin Kung sakin may nakikita Huwag mo nang pag-isipan pa Huwag ka nang magpalalim, giliw Kung ganyan, hayaan lang Kunwari pang baliw […]
I haven’t done this in a while, so I’m probably very rusty.

I don’t have to like the state […]
Normally I would write a piece dripping with so much contempt, righteous indignation, and anger over the matter of Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo’s State of the Nation Address. Normally I would mock her choice in dress, dress down her address, and tell my readers to seek redress. Yes, it was a silly-looking dress, wasn’t it? I could […]
I’ve been cooped up in bed for a couple of days now, thanks to some rainy-day virus. Now I’m not infected with swinefluenza or anything like that, but thanks to steady doses of analgesics and antipyretics, I’m almost well.
