The one that got away
This is a story that reminds you of things you have missed to say, people you have regretted not loving, and stories that ended before it started. The one that got away Source: The Manila Times By: Mark J. Macapagal In your life, you’ll make note of a lot of people.

ashes of time
I gotta hand it to WKW, he always manages to have such awesome titles for his films. Days of Being Wild, Happy Together, In the Mood for Love, My Blueberry Nights, etc… Anyway screening was good, doesn’t seem much different from the original version (though it’s been awhile since I’ve seen it) though they went crazy with the colours! And I miss the original prologue, it...

I’ve also finally chosen an idea to work on and adapt into a script. It’s something I was working on awhile back, a pet project I guess you can call it. Though some shit happened and I’ve put it on hold eversince. It’s much more developed then some of my other ideas and has great potential in terms of drama and conflict… I think. I’ll write about it in my next entry.
Yes, I’m a Batman fanboy. And i’m proud of it. My favourite comic book hero has always been Batman, I use to want to become a cartoonist/comic book artist and hopefully work on the comics. Obviously that didn’t come into fruitation, but it’s refreshing to see some great artist approach the mythology and character of Bruce Wayne/Batman and present him in such a brilliant...

the devil in you
For the last hour or so I’ve been surfing Wikipedia. I love it, I find myself spending hours somedays just randomly clicking links which usually defer offcourse of what I was initially reading. So before I’ve been reading/researching stuff in regards to Satan and other religious sort of things. My fascination for the supernatural stems way back when I was a youngster (my career was...

Besides my animation project (which hasn’t really progressed lately, but for good reason), i’ve been reading alot in regards to scriptwriting through blogs by script developers/writers. It’s really inspired me quite abit and I feel quite compelled to start some development on some ideas i have. One of my goals for the winter holidays was to write a completed script, obviously...
Chandler Bing and the "Subtle Art" of the Mixtape
patrickcassels: Toward the end of the 2000 movie “High Fidelity,” John Cusack’s love-struck record store owner/narrator tells the audience, “The making of a good compilation tape is a very subtle art. Many Dos and Don’ts. First of all you’re using someone else’s poetry to express how you feel. This is a delicate thing.” Cusack’s speech is as good an explanation of the mixtape’s virtues as one...
fields of gold
ARGH I wrote a long entry before about a script idea I had, only Firefox (and my stupid laggy net) had to screw up on me so i’ve lost it. I hate when that happens. So in short, I was planning to adapt the story of how my parents met into a script of some sort. Basically a coming of age film, something in the vein of ‘My Girl’. It’s possible to make it cheesy and cliched...

art journals + new project
Back in highschool i use to have a few art journals for my art subjects, where i’d write down my different ideas and conceptuals for my projects, sources of inspiration and other things. It was fun, alot of work but it tended to turn out great in the end. Awhile back i was looking over these journals and i felt hyped up to start a new one, to simply use in everyday life with stuff...

jeffrubinjeffrubin: (almost two years ago to the day) While I will attempt to not compare him to Nicholson or “The Batman” joker, I just dont know if Ledger has that crazy and creepy side needed to play the joker. I will admit that I havnt seen too many of his movies, but the ones I have seen him in he doesnt play a creepy crazy guy completly off his rocker. -EdLesMann Please tell me this isn’t...

A 3 Minute Pop-Song
Ever heard a song on the radio which you liked, only you had no clue who the artist was or what the song is called and you spend hours, days maybe even weeks trying to find out. My story goes something like that. It was late 2003, i was boarding on the plane to go to United States. I sat in the last row, with my cousin and we made some small talk with the couple sitting next to us. As the hours...

take my hand for awhile
Françoise Hardy I have a huge crush on Françoise Hardy, even though she’s in her mid 60’s (looks great for her age). Her music is an epitome of a past era, where Yé-yé girls were the rage and provided some beautiful tunes that still sound great in this age. Hardy’s music however slightly differed from other Yé-yé girls such as France Gall or Chantal Goya as alot of her songs...

Albert Kahn & Japanese Aesthetics
Before I was watching a documentary on SBS entitled ‘The Wonderful of Albert Kahn’ which documented the life of Albert Kahn and his mission to capture the world utilising cinematography and autochrome (early colour photography). I was mostly fascinated by the segment on Japan, where he employed photographer Roger Dumas to capture not only the traditional lifestyle of Japan but also...
A New Scene
Feel’s abit strange starting a new blog, but I plan to keep this one completely seperate from my LiveJournal. So (hopefully) you’ll find nothing in regards to my personal life here. Basically I decided I needed a place to store and record down my creative ramblings, or simply to post up my sources of inspiration. Well something along those lines. I guess this blog will be both a mix of...
