You have not known what you are.
You have slumbered upon yourself all your life.
Your eyes have been as much as closed most of the time.
What you have done is already in mockeries.

The mockeries are not you.
Underneath them
And within them,
I see you lurk...

another tease from the 'prince'

I AM STILL DISAPPOINTED and a little frustrated towards warner brothers’ decision not to premiere harry potter and the half-blood prince until july next year. this was supposed to be my most anticipated movie of 2008. watching it on IMAX 3D would’ve definitely beaten the exhilaration of passing my licensure examinations. harry potter fanatic talking… hehe!

since i can’t do anything about it, i just keep my self updated with the latest potter news while waiting, along with wizards, witches and muggles who knows the lightning-scarred boy busy playing with his stick. i visited mugglenet and found out that a new international teaser trailer has been released. and as usual, i couldn’t help but get excited. hehe!



i like this teaser far more than the first one. i was not able to place some scenes in relation to the ‘prince’ book and it made the anticipation more exciting. i want to be surprised. i am neither a potter book purist nor a movie purist. let the writers do what they have to do just let the story be true to the books. i have come to understand that the storyline of the book must be altered for it to fit a prescribed and limited length of a movie. but 24-hour long potter movie would be really cool! piece of advice: don’t read the books before watching. it lessens the disappointed. hehe!i am frustrated at first especially towards ‘sorcerer’s’ and ‘chamber’ because of the deleted scenes and changes but ‘azkaban’ was really great! alfonso cuaron twisted the story and i loved it. the fate of the ‘hallows’ was somehow left to david yates’ hands. crap.

i consider myself more of a reader than a writer and if harry didn’t pass under my nose i don’t think i could handle any extensive reading at all. the series made me love reading. i can’t remember how many times i’ve read each book from it. a principle somehow was formed in my head: if i could read a book as ‘thick’ as harry, i could deal with any thick books out there (except for medical books of course. there was this medical-surgical nursing book required for our curriculum. it was five inches thick and as big as the book of shadows in the tv series charmed. the letters were so minute it could practically blind you not to mention that it could cause severe cerebral hemorrhage due to very strange and difficult-to-pronounce medical terminologies. this book could kill, i tell you. but still i’m alive, you see? haha! did i mention it’s on two volumes?). i was fascinated by jk rowling’s descriptive and creative prowess. since harry potter, i was motivated to read other literary works and authors. i usually dig novels about mysteries and conspiracies that’s why i admire dan brown’s works. as time went by, i was also able to view reading not just a form of entertainment and aesthetic pleasure but somehow, an escape.

it was on my sophomore year in high school when a very close friend, tracey, let me borrow her sorcerer’s stone. it took me three weeks to finish it given that it’s just a relatively thin book. i was a slow reader back then. my reading incompetence probably gave tracey a clever idea because soon after i returned it she turned lending harry potter books to a business--5 pesos a day. haha! three weeks of reading would’ve cost me 70 pesos. hehe!

anyway, i went to haley’s place last night to do some catching up and watched some one tree hill episodes. the marathon was going fine until the sounds went out. haley’s crappy sound system was the culprit. hehe! i forgot to bring my ‘dolby surrounds’ because i was so excited to hang out with her. the sounds went back anyway and i was glad the episodes were a lot cheery than the previous set. i remembered watching it, insisting on watching some gossip girl afterward, just to neutralize the heavy mood.


after watc
hing we ate three large fries, burgers and cola at mcdonald’s, my treat. we were so full! i missed hanging out with her in that place. i couldn’t remember the last time we ate there. so many memories. after some funny and mushy talks i walked her home, her arm wrapped on mine. upon arrival at her place, i kissed her good bye and went home. she had no idea she’s the one person that keeps me sane through all my emotional baggage. i’ll definitely miss her when she leaves for saudi arabia. but just like peyton’s father had said, “people always leave. but sometimes it’s good.”

hales, if you’re reading this, please don’t comment! hahaha! peace out!

RJ said...

This post speaks of Roneiluke's interests and entertainment.

...and (maybe) lovelife?

[I love reading but I haven't read any of the Harry Potter books! I've watched every HP movie, though, still I was quite disappointed with The Order of the Phoenix (...piece of advice: don’t read the books before watching...).

Angels and Demons + The da Vinci... are the only books, I've read, by Dan Brown.]

--------------------------

Parang nabasa ko ayaw mo nang magtanong sa akin kahit kailan. Ito naman, di naman ganun ang ibig kong sabihin. Peace!

Mugen said...

My biggest disability is that I'm more of a writer than a reader.

I think it is your greatest strength.

Pasensya na, hindi ako exposed sa Harry Potter kaya hindi ako makarelate. Hehe.

RONeiluke, RN said...

mugen: ah kya pala hasang hasa na ang mga daliri at utak mo sa pagsusulat.

it's cool :)

REDLAN said...

Iba talaga kapag inaabangan mo ang isang series movie. Buti na lang hindi ako na-hook sa harry potter. isa lang ang napanood ko hindi pa yung first. Naalala ko tuloy yung spiderman 2. Maaga rin ang teaser. Naexcite ako at naisip ko panu kung di ako aabot the next year. lol.

It's cool talaga kapag my bestfriend kang babae. Marami kang matutunan.

REDLAN said...

BTW, nakakalungkot talaga na iiwan ng kaibigan. Ilang beses ko na yan naramdaman pero somehow maligaya ka rin sa kanila at maibasan yung kalungkutan dahil alam mo naman na mabuti naman ang hangarin at dulot ng pagkalayo. Babalik naman at magkita muli. Ano pa ba ang magagawa ng internet at cellphone?

madjik said...

magulo ba? hahaha!

eto detailed version:
errr next year pa ba showing ng harry potter?

sos ang baduy naman.
kung kelan nandito nako at ready to watch it na..

:p
@kris Jasper
yung hs musical pala ano..napanood ko yesterday kasi yung daughter ko mapilit.. yung rating?

wag na nga lang hahaha!
so so lang kasi..

(hope its better this time! :p)

haley james said...

...hey luke,Ü...

...sabi mu wag ako mag-comment eh, pero yup, nabasa ko na (thanks eyprille! -kurek c ron, i look horrible on webcam, haha!)...

...anyway, dat was sweet luke,Ü let's just not talk about me going somewhere far, ok? marami pa tayong kalokohang gagawin,Ü...

...thanks nga pala sa tree hill, I watched the last episode again, twice! i love you,Ü...

salingPUSA said...

you mean Harry will be available in 3D Ron? OMG---we need to reserve na. keke. tagal pa pala

salingPUSA said...

I think it's always like that, the book version is always different because there's no limit to ones imagination. Unlike with film. But we have to give credit to Hollywood coz the special effects really progressed a lot. Just imagine if everybody just have to settle for third world technology....waaahhh...I wouldn't want to see fiction/fantasy movies anymore.....

Hm,mmmmm, you finally posted your photo here with your gf. what will she be doing in Saudi? I'm sure you will miss her, nways, you can always go there naman for a trip ayt?

acey said...

awww... you seem to really like her! :D ayee!!!

Chyng said...

Im not a fan of HP, one in a million ako! KJ! hehe

Oh, besfren mo pala si Hales and she will leave soon! I wanted my best bud to always be around.. A talk over coffee with your bestbud gives more comfort than all of your friends combine. May sound unfair, pero totoo naman! ;)

Regards!
