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...


-Walt Whitman

r stands for random

I AM NOT INSPIRED to write anything as of the moment. Besides, there is nothing significant to write, but strangely enough there’s still the urge to write. And writing this post just reinforces the fact that I am an impulsive person. I remember an anonymous commenter labeling me as a ‘psycho blogger’. He probably got it right. :P

MATT GIRAUD: THE NEXT IDOL?
I enjoyed this week’s performances in American Idol. But only one really blew me away. It was Matt Giraud.
His rendition of Carrie’s So Small was nothing short of amazing. I loved Matt’s blues-y tone in his voice and the fact that he’s a piano player. Add the superb dynamics and arrangement of a beautiful song—it’s almost perfect. I see a resemblance between him and Gavin Degraw, which is one of my favorite current artists. His music is on the loop in my mp3 player including Jay Brannan’s.



I was really disappointed when Alexis got voted out. It should’ve been Adam in my opinion. I just don’t get him and his performance. It was really strange and creepy. He sure hits unimaginable notes but he sounds like he’s singing through his throat.

KICKING CHUN-LI WOULD BE NICE.

I love Kristin Kreuk. Everyone who knows me knows that. But I just hated her movie. It was so disappointing. I mean everything sucked. I couldn’t even appreciate the fight scenes. They seemed so slow and poorly choreographed. They made Vega looked so hideous. He should be handsome, right? But at least there was still a reason to wear the mask.

It was very shallow movie. There’s almost no point of watching it. And guess what? There's a sequel! The producer's thought of this beforehand because they knew 'Chun-Li' would be a flop.

WHERE MY NOSE IS CURRENTLY STUCK.
I finished reading Para Kay B just recently. And just to clarify, the letter from the previous post was not for
me. It’s for Lucas who wrote the stories in the book. It was mere coincidence that we share the same ‘name’. I mean why would I write to myself? Haha! :P



I am currently rereading Dan Brown’s Digital Fortress. I already forgot the story so I thought why not read it again. I had to put aside The Rosary Girls by Richard Montanari just to dwell in its pages again. Sorry Steph! :P I want to become a code-breaker first before being a homicide detective.



GLOBAL WARMING AND ALLERGIES.
My allergies came back but this time, they chose to attack face. I was thinking I might be suffering from allergic rhinitis which I have, but I didn’t expect it to last this long. It usually lasts for only a day or two. As usual I’m bombarding myself with antihistamines yet again.

Since I do not know exactly the causative agent for my condition (I even changed my bed sheets and pillow cases just to be sure), I decided to blame it on the very hot weather. I am so missing the rainy season. I had to stay in my room for most part of the day just to savor the heaven that only my air-conditioning unit could give. (I’m in my room right now, enjoying a chocolate ice cream with nips :P) It’s not a surprise that my parents blame me for the sky-rocketing electric bills. I say: Blame it on the weatherman! Haha!

TAGGED.

They say you can have a glimpse of one’s personality through his penmanship. What does this make me?

1. Write the name of the blogger who tagged you.

2. Write the answers to the following:
-your name/ username / pseudo
-right- handed? or left-handed?
-your favorite letters to write

-your least favorite letters to write

-write " the quick brown fox jumps over the l
azy dog "

3. Tag five of your blogger friends.







I am wondering what I can do to make my summer worthwhile. Hmmm… Any ideas?

bulitas:
my instincts tell me dragon ball is a mess too. pero minsan kahit alam mo na parang gusto mo pa rin...gets? hahaha!

di: salamat, di sa pagbisita :)

ganun? syang naman kasi magagaling talaga mga kasali this season. hindi mo talaga masasabi kung sino mananalo.

Richard the Lionheart said...

KRIS JASPER said...

NOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Im actually watching AI replay while typing this and Kris is singing.

dabo said...

i still bet for Kris Allen hehe

at tama ka ang shallow ng Chun Li. A very big dissapointment.

RJ said...

'Ta mo, Ron, maraming nag-akalang para kay Lucas ng On the Coffin Rock ang post mo noong nakaraan.

Gusto ko ring basahin ang Digital Fortress! U Pero hintayin ko munang matapos ko nang mapanood ang Angels and Demons, kasi madalas nalilito na ako. Whew! Tulad ng da Vinci Code movie, pinanood ko sa mga panahong binabasa ko naman ang Angels and Demons, naku, nagkalituhan na. Hahaha!

RonTuron said...

pareho tayo.. though there's nothing to write e still gusto ko pa ring magsulat at makapag post man lang kahit walang ka torya torya.. well i guess thats what blogging is all about naman...

la lang..

kita mo na.. walang kwenta posts ko lately .. pati comment ko sayo wala ding kwenta! haha..

padaan lang parekoy.. para hindi maputol ang pisi ng pagiging magkatukayo natin sa blogsperyo.. haha.. MEGAnon????haha..

peace ayt

RonTuron said...

joke lang. since blog mo to e ill assume ikaw yun.. although applicable din sakin yung goodlookin! hahahaha..

la lang.. nangungulit lang.. hehehe

jonathan said...

I believed you are tagging me,hmmm...

Anyway, your disconnected script tells you that you have good intuition, auditory memory, you're talkative and independent. There is also consideration for others and sometimes, inner loneliness. However, a monotonous upright script would mean neurotic tendencies.

The forward slant means optimism, ambition, spontaneity, sociability and passion.

And so I leave you for your own interpretations :)

lucas said...

richard: thanks for the invite :) enjoy na lang!

van: ang dami ko pang hindi nasusubukan pero wala akong resources..:|

KJ: yeah...he looks like you. but i'm talking about the singing. i just don't get his shrilly voice. haha! sorry :P

dabo: kris allen sounds good too...

nakakadisappoint nga yung movie. but i still love kristin. :P

RJ: oo nga eh...marami pa kasing hindi nakakapagbasa nung para kay b. hehe!

ok lang kahit basahin mo na before yung angels and demons kasi iba na yung story nun....hindi na si robert langdon yung bida... :)

ron2ton: hahaha! ako yun, mate..pero sabi nga nila libreng mangarap! hahaha! MEGAnon? hahaha!

wala nga rin akong maisip na maisulat lately...goodluck na lang satin! hehe!

salamat sa pagbisita, parekoy.

jon: i think i'll go the interpretation which says i'm neurotic. hahaha! i think i am sometimes. :P

thanks, alot!

yeah...i tagged you. but it's ok if you don't want to do it. tags could be bugging sometimes... :)

Nebz said...

Pareho tayo ng sentiments sa AI. Dapat si Adam ang tinanggal!!!

Nakalimutan ko n rin ang story ng Digital Fortress. Re-read ko n lang ulit pagbakasyon ko.

Ely said...

Wild card si Matt G di ba? I'm still rooting for Danny G. and Lil Rounds. I have a strong feeling that it's gonna be a black winner this year.

Joaqui said...

Everybody likes Matt. For some weird reasons, when it's his time to perform, I am not in front of the tv anymore. hehehe

I like Gokey. :) and some others.

P.S. I am not saying I don't like Matt, it's just that the little exposure to his talent gives me little room to state a decent opinion.

Reyn said...

KA ron, KA!!! haha..

REDLAN said...

Thanks sa info. strong ang pensmanship mo. galing

lucas said...

nebs:dapat talaga siya yung natanggal. his performance is way too strange for me. hehe! and it's america that's voting..:)

maganda ulit pag limoy mo na yung story. chapter 12 na ako..hehe! ang bagal noh?

peace out!

ely: Danny no doubt is one of the front runners including Lil. the batch this year is really good.

joaqui: Danny is obviously one of the front-runners. I like him too. mas gusto ko lang si matt kasi parang siyang 'underdog' kunpara dun sa mga obvious na magagaling. hehe!

thanks!

Ton: KA? kRIS ALLEN?! HAHA! mATT, TON! MATT!

red: thanks, red :)

poot: nakaboto nako.hehe!

Jason said...

I like Matt Giraud too. I don't like Michael Sarver

flamindevil said...

thanks for the heads up. i won't be watching 'chun-li' anymore.

i kinda liked adam lambert's black or white rendition. this week though, matt and kris did better.

PUSANG-gala said...
