caffeine as a substitute for morphine+flash film critiques

call me an addict, but the prospect of sitting in on the cluster committee version of the revaluation committee to discuss the film program and cmc's curriculum revaluation prompts me to think of shooting up caffeine directly into my blood vessels, like what morphine and heroin addicts do. kaya lang ugly ang may butas-butas sa arm kaya dedma na... but the thought is tempting, promise.

and lo and behold, aga pa ng meeting!9friggingam! i never thought i'd say this but i'd rather face endless hours of registration advising than sit in that reval meeting for 1/4 of the day! dude, sometimes it takes longer than that! aarrrgh. and it doesn't help that the cluster meeting is at the college of music, because the chair of the cluster committee is the college of music's dean. sana man lang sa cmc para i can escape to my room once in a while but no, suffer kami lahat sa neighboring college bukas. aaarrgggh!

i can't wait for tomorrow to be over. hay. just thinking about it makes me involuntarily lethargic. i hope they serve good food, man. i swear. lengua lang ang katapat nito, i swear.

man, rescue me. i'm so dreading this. but yes, we have to be there. i have to guard the changes we worked so hard on this past schoolyear. para sa ikabubuti ng film program. hay help me goddess...

sa tension, di tuloy ako makatulog. so here we are.

saw some movies over the weekend and i just want to release what i think of some of them. in a flash.

CHRONICLES OF NARNIA: THE LION , THE WITCH AND THE WARDROBE

and yet this is another tilda-swinton-bad-hair-day movie (remember CONSTANTINE, and THE BEACH, and others). ito ang "no shampoo no conditioner for 100 years" look para ma-achieve ang ice queen naninigas hair effect. ayuz.

as much as i wanna be dazzled by the special effects and the movie wizardry, can't help but get derailed by how...catholic the storyline is. from the lion's death and resurrection, the sibling's messianic complex to save the people of narnia, the ultimate sacrifice subtheme repeated several times, chenelyn chenelyn chenelyn...kulang na lang may literal na mag-genuflect dito eh. hay...lumalabas ang catholic schoolgirl angst ko hehehe. chos.kaya di ako na-engganyo sa writings ni cslewis e. hm.

at ang lesson dito sa mga bata ay: tigilan ang katakawan. dahil kung di nag-desire sa turkish delight desserts yung isang bata, walang trouble in the first place. hanggang the wardrobe lang ang adventure. wala nang lion witch and other strange creatures we've seen before in lots of literary and film works.

and yeah, it's so freaking british. tea with the little girl and a faun. ay. basta.


SWEET HOME ALABAMA

as usual, reese witherspoon turns a normal role into a good one and saves it from being hollywoodishly banal. yeah, i like her, she's a good actor for me. hello LEGALLY BLONDE na lang no hehe.at classic pa rin si candace bergen. i so miss MURPHY BROWN. they don't make witty funny sitcoms like that anymore. hay.


SHREK 3

scary si snow white. sobra. yun lang.

hm, okay sige more pa. mas witty at funny yung unang dalawa. pero nakakatawa rin naman ito.

and i love the way they poked fun at the disney style when snow white sang that sweet song tapos naging headbanger crazy hahahaha. how irreverenltly schizophrenic! luv it.

oo may hang-up ako kay snow white. scary kasi siya. swear.

yeah bumabawi na ko sa panonood ng new material. new for me kahit luma na. like i just started tuning in sa HEROES tv series sa crime and suspense channel. i saw them guest sa show ni ELLEN at naintriga ako. di ko naabutan ang series start sa isang channel kaya buti na lang nakita ko itong sa c/s channel.

at yey natapos din ang binabasa kong isang reference book sa aking thesis. next!

yay i think i got over my de-media-fied mode na. sa wakas!

shet lang di ko napanood ang last ep ng SEARCH FOR THE NEXT PUSSYCAT DOLL. i swear addicted ako sa show na ito. natatawa kasi ako sa mga nangyayari, pero nakakatuwa ring panoorin ang struggles nila. kahit alam ko na kung sino ang mananalo, gusto ko pa rin tignan ang process. hehe. wala lang. after midnight fare kasi ito e. ito ang mga shows na naaabutan ko. pampatulog ba.

potah ang init.

nakasalang right now ang IWITNESS na pinaghirapan kong i-babysit ang konsepto sa researcher nila. sa dami na ng changes, leads and case studies na na-suggest ko sa batang yun, hay...buti naman nakapili sila ng angulo sa wakas.

"lesbiyana ako" ang titulo at siyempre lesbianism ang topic. kaya ako na naman ang natisod nilang gawing resource person. na naman. ginawa na ito dati nina vicky morales dati, IWITNESS din. gusto sana nila akong i-oncam pero dahil sa hindi out ang girlfriend ko dati, behind the scenes lang ako. i just made sure lang now na dapat hindi na sila magtanong ng stupid questions like "ay, so hindi pala kayo nagsusuot ng brief?"

aiiiiiii. swear. katangahan to the utmost level ang tanong na to.

ayan, buti rin kinontak nila si ate shao, yung kasama kong sp sa lovely day dati. ang laki na ni kalil, yung baby niya! kalurka kasi dati ginamit namin itong baby niya sa isang ep, at potah ginabi ako sa pagdirek nito i swear. kaya stick with the old credo of no babies and no animals on the set.

but what's with the NYPD BLUEish cam movements? hindi achieve, ati...

lesbians with children na lang ang ginawa nilang anggulo. sayang mas bet sana yung power lesbians e. kulit e. yet again, na-stuck sa old gender roles of being a nanay ang naging approach. hmp. sana power lesbians na lang nga. well, sige na nga. buti na lang din at binitawan nila yung plan na may mag-a-out na lez sa pamilya chenes chenes na style ng OUT! dati. kulit kasi e. sabing di effective yun.

hm, pero teka...dapat yata may consultancy fee ako dito a. hm.

la lang.

joke. syempre glad to be of help basta sa advocacy na ito. chos.

at they got my name wrong na naman. libay lisangan cantor. nyets. well at least close. dati kasi dun sa iwit ni vicky noong 2000-2001, ang pangalan ko ay 'libay linsangan center.' joke tuloy for a while sa community na wpw, isang building na pala ako...kalurks.

well, nobody's perfect.
