It's a date

Many people live within unhappy circumstances because they are on bound to the same old shits again and again. The basic core for a healthier spirit is that passion for continuous life adventure, fresh encounters, and ever-changing horizons. Thus, to compensate for the banality of my current life limitedly spent on the lab and in the apartment, I'm heading to the biggest rock event of the year by the end of October.

It’s easy to avail the tickets. Just click this link for more details. Will I see you there then?


Nothing takes the taste out of peanut butter quite like unrequited love 2

The previous heartbreaking sort of post was a huge hit. From the traffic data, it seems like people did dig for it really. Thus, here comes this bittersweet sequel. For the second time around, this post will cover rip-your-heart tracks concerning reasons-to-be-sorry-for-yourself for living life tied with unrequited love. However, it’s local music’s turn this time. Here goes:

Bituin Escalante – Kung Ako Na Lang Sana. At ewan ko nga sa’yo, parang balewala ang puso ko, ano nga bang meron sya, na sa akin ay di mo makita.. Tagged as the best single during Himig Handog Love Songs a decade ago, one could expect a heavy heartache right at its core. 

Aiza Seguerra – Pagdating ng Panahon. Baka tibok ng puso ko'y maging tibok ng puso mo. Everyone might agree that 'Pagdating ng Panahon' is one of the greatest OPM love songs ever written, being one of the longest charting singles during the early 2000s. But despite its feel-good and relaxing tune lies a deep, dark, lonesome cage of unrequitedness. 

Jennylyn Mercado – Kahit Sandali. Kahit sandali, pag-ibig mo sana’y maramdaman man lang, mayakap ako at mahagkan kahit di mo mahal. This is just another confirmation of how far could people go on stupidity when dealing with love. This world sucks, but people suck even more.

Rivermaya – 241 (My Favorite Song) vid: hereI wanted to turn you on my favorite song, wanted to be near you but somebody owns you now. This is one of the last few worthwhile Rivermaya tracks before they totally go flop. Ironically, this single isn't advisable to be a favorite one.

Jamie Rivera – Mahal Naman Kita ..ngunit di bale na, kahit mahal mo siya, mahal naman kita. This is unrequited love from a positive perspective. It's just amazing how a desperate thing's been transformed into something inspiring. maybe it's the perk of being a Jamie Rivera.

Some people are born shitty sadists―they always find ways to be in that idyllic position of being an unlikely lover―hoping the love they gave to be reciprocated. Needless to say, the world is so fucked up with people helplessly wallowing in the deep and dark pit of despair, drowning themselves in utter desolation, hoping to feel that delirious happiness in custom-made illusion. Though it’s human nature, there’s an option not to end up on pain, agony, and misery of being on the depressing nothing side brought by such form of love. There is a choice to kiss that crazy fuck good-bye and all the curse and horrors it brings the lonely heart.

Each of us has the right to love, but to be loved back is a whole chalk-and-cheese story. God gave us hearts, but He also blessed us with a larger organ called brain as well. What you think?


The Kings of Rock Royalty \m/

I’m in pits of nostalgia thinking about what has been, what could have been, and all sorts of somnolent things a mourning person could possibly think of. The graduation breeze is too sultry these days. There were these demonic chills. I need to make myself believe everything’s alright. It should be.

I need a cup of coffee. No. A break, perhaps. A huge cup of break. No. Just a break. A swift escape. I’m eyeing for that get-drown-in-alcohol-moment, freed myself boundlessly, and spend life like I never had one before. Now I’m dreaming. Might as well dream big. I want to be in a rock-hard concert. I would love to be part of that biggest upcoming rock battle, if only I have the chance and the money (especially now that I officially declare myself a break). The Boracay concert on April 14 is my current ultimate desire. But, reality check, that’s impossible right now. For the mean time, here’s the list of my all-time-fave hits from the heroes of Pinoy Rock – Tanduay Rhum’s First Five 2012.

Rico Blanco – Antukin. Instant time-travel back to 2009. This single reminds me much of those days when I’m still worry-free about what lies ahead. This track actually causes my current-self miss my previous-self. There is so much good in the past that is truly good to behold. And simply hearing 'Antukin' just sets everything at the present, right.

Urbandub – Frailty. Tagged as ‘Heroes of Indie Bands’, Urbandub has been one of my absolute guilty pleasures when it comes to Indie music. I’ve always been generous enough to lend my ears to the sound of various indie local artists. And Urbandub is one of those bands that stood out exceedingly exceptional. 

Kamikazee – Martyr Nyebera. Trying to keep up with Kamikazee’s utter dominance in the fun side of rock makes me forever thankful for music. Jay Contreras, his music, and the rest of the gang, are just too hilarious. 'Martyr Nyebera' will always be a favorite. 

Wolfgang – Aquarius. This song is just too contagious and highly inspiring. Plus it's Wolfgang. And it's aquarius. It's rock at its finest. 90s kids are lucky enough to have these band just behind their sleeves. And the new 21st century music lovers are still lucky though because Wolfgang is still actively on the rise at this point.

Parokya Ni Edgar – Gising NaLastly, Parokya Ni Edgar is one of those few Pinoy bands I grew up worshipping. Spiritually. Literally. And ‘Gising Na’ (my current alarm tone) is yet another product of the undeniable proof of the musical ingenuity I'm trying to talk about.


Lumangoy sa alaala ko (Olivr's Top 10 Songs of 2010)


Despite the horrendous traffic jam in the airwaves due to the massive get off of those filthy trashes as we face the new decade, a few valuable hits has found their way to surface and grace the radio with some good sound treat. So to say, here is the list of the top 10 singles for 2010, according to my ever reliable taste. Lol. I actually had hard time picking ten since a few more options were running in my head. I had to re-think and re-listen again and again on the songs to narrow down and come up with the rankings. So,

10. Mumford & Sons – Little Lion Man. This is the single I could pour my heart out while listening to. There are those times when we can’t find the courage to do something and we end up blaming ourselves for not trying. Sadly, I have a fair share at that.

9. Hale – Kalesa. ‘Kalesa’ is a feel-good tune for good people. This is basically, ‘Pitong Araw’ Part 2.

8. The Wanted – All Time Low. I’m not generally a sad person but my choice of music makes me think otherwise. This single is not sad itself, though. I just feel the need to give it an ear during those desperate times.

7. Tanya Markova – Disney. Talk about splendidly warped imagination packed in a creatively written single of slyly humorous genre. Tanya Markova is surely a group worth watching out for in the coming years.

6. Train – Hey Soul Sister. Modern classic. Catchy, tone-wise. When I first heard this on the radio, I felt sad for the dead. Literally, they missed a huge part of their party life. I mean, party, on another context, if you get it right. If you never ever liked this song (not even once, not even a bit), you might as well donate those pair of ears away. You don’t deserve them.

5. Taio Cruz – Dynamite. The most explosive thing that ever happened this year. Though, ‘Dynamite’ is essentially empty, both lyrically and musically. It’s not the usual deep single destined to be loved by deep diggers of deeply meaningful lyrics. For once, let’s not be deep, but settle for its catchy commercial appeal and its hugely infectious chorus.

4. Parokya ni Edgar – Pakiusap Lang (Lasingin Nyo Ako). Just the right dose of drama, if you wish.

3. Mike Posner – Please Don’t Go. Plainly relaxing. This offers a smooth, vulnerable Mike Posner vocal line bearing an incredible riff that would go on your head for weeks.

2. Avenged Sevenfold – Nightmare. This single validates A7X’s music mastery. Rev must be proud at this.

1. Sugarfree – Hangover. This song will always remind of how I deeply fell in love with NU107. This will be wedged forever in my heart. There are certain things which are just too hard to forget and move from. 


Some opinions expressed in this site might not suit your taste. Sure there are tons of tpyo, speling, andgramming errors. Well I never claimed to be perfect nor close to being an English teacher which gives me the right to commit these mistakes. Btw, thanks for dropping by.
