Thoughts about the MCU after Infinity Wars

Posted in entertainment, Random, Special posts by Fated Blue on May 3, 2018

Watched one of Pewd’s recent videos and he made a commentary on the MCU.

Pewds said it’s unbelievable that after almost 20 films, people are still getting excited over a new movie or a new character reveal. It’s unbelievable how people don’t notice that almost every movie is just a reskin of the previous ones. He is also frustrated how it affects the number of films he could watch during its screening, with almost every cinema showing just one movie for two weeks, forcing “other” fans to wait for the Blu Ray release of these other films.

And I agree.

Prejudice and What Changed Me

Posted in life, Special posts by Fated Blue on May 1, 2018

You know, growing up and receiving education in a “Catholic Country” (a title I think should be reconsidered) once made me think less of gay people, wrongfully judge those who have premarital sex, be disgusted with prostitutes, and abhor any form of abortion.

Seriously, as a kid who didn’t know any better, I used to make jokes about them, used them as examples of sinners and criminals in essays, and pretty much conclude that I’m superior simply because I am not like them. Needless to say, I was pretty prejudiced as a child.

It wasn’t until I read a lot of books, met a lot of people, and opened up to other people’s opinions that I realized how narrowminded and socially inconsiderate our country was. Having met people who were gay, had premarital sex, dabbed into prostitution, and once or twice had an abortion also cleared up any misconception I had of them.

To the woman who stole my heart one night in Siargao

Posted in life, Special posts by Fated Blue on April 23, 2018

For five years I kept telling myself I’ll go through life alone. Ever since another woman left me in pieces, I swore not to feel that kind of pain again.

And for five years it worked. I became successful, I was able to go to places I once dreamed of, I am now able to afford things I used to only wish for.

Then I met you.

I am sorry for my #JusticeForKian posts.

Blahblah

At this point, I’m sure the lot of you have grown weary with the barrage of EJK-relate posts surfacing and resurfacing over and over again. You probably feel like hiding or unfollowing people who share posts related or in response to Kian’s unfortunate demise. Even religious institutions had a page of obviously-political-and-biased words to say about that.

What are the typical traits of Filipinos?

Posted in Special posts by Fated Blue on April 28, 2017

This is the link to the original question on my new favorite site Quora. For some reason, some dipshit found my answer worth moderating despite positive feedback so I decided to bring it out here.

One reason I answered it that way was because of the OVERWHELMINGLY positive answers from foreigners. Yeah sure, they’re all true but they end up giving the country a false image of peace and civilized culture. .The Filipino is anything but.

Yes, these are generalizations but can you actually disagree with me? If you find yourself nodding to every one trait I listed then perhaps these traits are what is inherent to us since birth and we only learn to be proper citizens as we age.

(Before we start, I like to credit Thought Catalog for the featured image used.)

Sometimes I just have to write it all down because I died again.

The title says it all. I’m listening to Lucius’ “Don’t Just Sit There” and ugh, it just makes me feel…things. You know, the kind of things you don’t really feel or even think about but this song just unearths it like some mad archaeologist in the deepest, darkest burial grounds in my brain.

What did it unearth? A question. It unearthed a question and that question is: Will I ever find love again?

Les Miserables Manila 2016 – Worth Every Second And Every Cent

Posted in entertainment, life, Special posts by Fated Blue on March 19, 2016

Les Miserables Manila is definitely worth the price and traffic. The effects and props are what you would expect from an international performance group. I love this novel and I would definitely watch it again and again and again. I’ve been wanting to watch it since I read the unabridged book some 10 or so years ago as well as watch the film four years back. The story still drives me to a sort of lonely guilt that I just love feeling.

I purchased the tickets without knowing who the heck played who because this was the first time Les Mis would be in the Philippines. I booked VIP on opening day and chose the best seat in the house which was right in the center without being too close or too far; just right to see, hear, and even feel everything.
