They Dance

They dance and groove in the light
The beat set free, all set loose
Take a look at them tonight
Neon clothes, in frolic shoes

In the distance as I watch
Shadows, motions, frames in rage
My eyes wander just to catch
Apparitions, fire on stage

They dance and shout in all strength
As the speakers kicks aloud
Their gasps turn to heavy breath
As they mingle 'long the crowd

The moon, the sky they both fade
Eager bodies cannot wait
The men, for sure, knows their trade
Here awake as if not late

They dance and enjoy the height
Smiles in faces now engraved
But here I am, lone tonight
In the dark, a pit I paved

The Dead

As I reflected on who I am, a thought entered me. I felt deep silence despite the noise and the music playing on my ears. It seems like my eyes flew that I suddenly looked through the eyes of the dead. The dead are to be envied. They are able to enjoy silence, peace, and bliss as they leave this life. They are no more yet they are not affected.

The following passages are results of that meditated thought.

The peaceful. The undisturbed.
The unhurt. The pacified.
The silent. The arbitrer.
The conscious no more. The dead.

The rested. The sound slumber.
The careless. The unbiased.
The frozen. The withdrawn soul.
The one fortunate. The dead.

The first bid. The precedent.
The ended. The immediate.
The goodbye. The departure.
The sole-forsaker. The dead.

The at-hand. The coming soon.
The certain. The imminent.
The horror. The apprehend.
The last catch of breath. The dead.

The repeat. The new reborn.
The juncture. The intertwined.
The raptured. The paradised.
The non-suffering. The dead.


This we have is momentary
Our devotion slips, flies away
Happy now and later gloomy
'Cause no matter what, we can't stay

This festiveness I have inside
Might be here now and later gone
Our victory, things that give pride
Is uncertain, hides like the sun

But I've learned one thing, how to choose
Things you can keep for a lifetime
We're not little, no more, to lose
It's high season for our sublime

A momentary universe
I thought I had no other course
But then, these hands, creates my verse
To remove regret, the remorse

Remove these feather wings of mine
For they're for babes and not for lads
No need of cribs nor river's gush
To fly me to heavenly pads

USG - Waste of Time (Grabbed)

This is a very interesting post. You may want to read through the comments if you want to.

Nakakatawa ang SC. Nag plebiscite sila tapos hindi pala nila alam kng ano ang definition ng 50%+1. Obvious naman, 50%+1 is referring to the number of (yes) votes made by the members of the Student Council which includes the undergraduates.

So approximately, they need 5,000 or 4,500 and after the extension and extension and extension gusto na naman nila ng extension kasi hindi sila umabot.

Nakakatawa dahil "educating the students about the issue" daw ang problema. Eh kanino bang trabaho yun? Hindi ba sa inyo? Wala daw pakialam ang mga estudyante, well, totoo, wala talaga lalo na sa mga walang kwentang issue. May pakialam ang mga estudyante and nakialam sila kung ating matatandaan sa isyu ng paglilipat ng free day mula sa friday papuntang monday.

The Student Council has failed to educate the students about this issue.
The Plebiscite is a success but the decision is NO because it did NOT reach 50%+1.

Yung mga mukha niyo mga atat na atat sa pagbabago na hindi kailangan. Wag niyo na kaming lokohin at higit sa lahat wag niyo ng ipilit.

Tao ang dapat palitan, hindi ang sistema.

Taken from:

The Stranger

We never knew forever
When we were joined together
We see beauty in the vain
We can only see the gain

We can never grow farther
Nor apart from each other
We stay along all the while
During the day we just smile

Feel each other's company
Cry but still in harmony
That's ever since when we've met
Except this eve when we've left

Tonight is way much diff'rent
For my world, my truth now bent
Was filled, like thirst with water
But now I'm blind, I stutter

Friendship, dear, I tagged you with
Still no sense, I empt'ly breathe
Now I wonder who you are
Cos here right now, you're so far

In my bed I ask myself
I check the books in the shelf
Yet I can't find the answer
To who you are, a stranger

Maybe now's not the right time
To dabble and to clean grime
But it goes down to one fact
We're found on ground too abstract

THERE IS NO HACKER NAMED h4xor-nytmare. Stop passing that message around.

What really happened:
From the Friendster Forums,

We're aware of the problem that some users are having with missing friends. We experienced a major power outage the other day, that we're still recovering from.

We are actively working on resolving the problem with missing friends. Rest assured that no friends have actually been lost -- even though it may appear so on the website! The problem should be fixed within the next 24 hours. We apologize for this inconvenience.

A friend of mine just called me to tell me that QTS's Sunnyvale had a major power event today. Details are slim, but apparently it was an entire site outage. He told me that he's about 50th in line to get access to the facility right now. Due to this outage, Friendster is offline right now.

A Short Meta-Fictional Joke

I am Matthew (the persona speaking). I had this friend that once sent me a text message. The conversation goes as follows:

Friend: Uyy, Matthew, can I ask what your number is? It's just that I've changed my number already. This is your friend, .

Me: .

(Conversation ends).

Now, the twist is that I do not know whether I'll see it as something funny or scary eh. Hahaha. :p

Note: Well, this is just meta-fiction. That means that I'm reflecting it to real life and mixing fiction in it. Hahahah. :p

My Stand of Controversy

I guess that this is the best place to place my stand although I am entitled to the right of expressing my concerns regarding school. I'm not really against the USG itself. It's just that I'm against the particular issues about it that were discussed (although not that much because the publicity focused on its positive sides alone) about the USG (Link:

Here's my stand on the USG, particularly based on the link above although in a different format:

It doesn't balance the boat. There was no enlightenment at all. There were just vague claims and defenses that lead to the path of nowhere except violence, force, and complications, and not of peace, bliss, nor productive governance (or more correctly, service).

Too much emphasis on the USG being the ideal student government structure has already been made to the point that there is only blind and forced obedience, making it appear as if the USG is all that seems best with all the beautiful words without even enough supporting data to prove the claims. All the flowery descriptions about the USG, on their own, aren’t EVER enough. Many students even vote for it without full knowledge of what it's really all about. It is even a torture to the student body that the Student Council demanded the students to vote on the USG without even enough effort of informing them of what the USG really is in a way that it’s not a sensationalized commercial or TV ad. There were just, in my knowledge and in my enthusiastic efforts of updating myself about it, some late multiply posts, vague yahoogroup threads, and some minor publicity stunts promoting it. I will always remember how my Philosophy professor always told us how the ad that “Papaya and Calamansi makes you whiter as it was said by Juday in her beauty-soap advertisement” was a deception. It was said that “Papaya makes you whiter, and Calamansi too – how much more, then, would the effect be if they are combined”. He, even of superior knowledge, insists nonchalantly about it being invalid. Much is the same to the USG.

Going about with just saying that the LA reps have devoted a few months in studying the USG doesn't mean that it's all polished up. We can wait all time for a useless meeting and not be able to come up at anything. Time is never a basis. Data and valid information is. In the world of research that we are in today, to say that something is factual requires real and concerete supporting evidences. Without it, it will appear as if the claims are only cooked-up. Data and information is what matters most.

The real duty of the representatives that we have today is to SERVE and protect the students and their rights, and nobody else's selfish interest. Aren’t those the center of the campaigns? The representatives, too, must, at the least, be (the ones who are) able to present substantial, concrete, complete, and detailed information about the studies, researches, findings, and other related documents essential about the USG to the student body. I believe that what LA reps could best do to help and serve the student body (and not anybody else's selfish interests) is to present and report to the student body what they have so-called studied and deliberated about, and not babble about their own subjective opinions. We have those too.

It seems as if only the LA reps know the real deal about the USG. All these dark parts of the USG just make it appear like the representatives has their own hidden agendas protected by flowery fronts. There are many positive claims about the USG without even enough concrete data or evidence and examination presented to the student body. Some even claim that there is concrete evidence, but where are they? Now, how about the dark areas of USG? If the students do not know anything about them, that darkness will only, in the future, eat us. As the moral maxim says, "our mistakes can never be corrected by another set of mistakes". It appears as if we should only follow the things based on what others say, or more popularly, what “they” say. But, you see, as we all know that the students are involved, they need concrete data about the USG and what had happened in the few months of the so-called deliberations about the USG too. Presenting them to us will help a big bunch.

Also, not because the LA reps are the formal (the formalities) reps of the student bodies, they're the only ones entitled to the info discussed during the LA delibs, and to decision and opinion. We want and need that info too. We have minds to think with too. The student body isn’t a collection of stupid people. They have brains that work. They obviously can understand. If they couldn't so, the ones in the student council, being students too, would be, in no offense, stupid. We don't need "yayas" to feed us our meals anymore. They only need to prepare our food and we can do the eating on our own. Soon enough, we are on our way to preparing our own food, and with that, we can select what we want to eat. We also do not need anybody to tell us what beautiful is. Present a particular object, and with our own gift of perception, we can judge whether an object is beautiful or not. Believe us. We can.

The students deserve the real deal. The students deserve to know the real info -- the black, the white, and the gray parts too. All of the students have the right to credible information. That means that the information presented to them shouldn't be at all distorted, manipulated, or bent by any power. It is our right to know everything about the USG. Failure to do so is a violation of our student rights.

I hope that this illusion of balance be abolished and dispelled soon along with the surface of the truth. We cry out for real credible information (and not opinion). We cry out for our rights.
