It’s true.

In Life Matters, Size: Tall on April 4, 2009 at 7:37 am

After all these years
After all these tears between us
Still I couldn’t find
Someone half as right as you

And each time I stop to think
What it is I really need

Heres what I conclude
All I really need is you

Just say what you want to say
You don’t have a chance in the world
Can I, knowing how I’ve tried
Still come close to losing you when you are my world

Have I spent so many nights
Trying but in vain to tell you
Don’t you know it’s true
All I really need is you

Ah, this sucks. YOU have no idea.

The genius of Gmail

In Interesting, Size: Tall on April 1, 2009 at 2:09 am

For everyone who uses Gmail, they are probably aware of the little icon on the upper right linking to gmail labs, where one can see the add-on features developed by the Gmail peeps.  Some of the things found there are good, some are just not as useful.   However, with the time I spend on Twitter lately, I found one “tweet” about this Gmail feature that I thought was genius. I’m not sure how useful it’s gonna be, but when I found out about it I was impressed.

Freedom in the Alps!

In Interesting, Size: Tall on March 17, 2009 at 11:38 pm

I stumbled upon this article from the New York Times through someone in Twitter. I don’t know whether to think it as funny or ridiculous. How can it not be either if we’re talking about hiking in the nude? In the Alps… All they wear are their hiking boots and some sun screen. Location: Appenzell, Switzerland. Some are obviously bothered bumping into people who go all bare but the city cannot criminalize them because one, there is no law against hiking in the nude and two, “[s]imply being naked without any sexual connotation is no longer illegal,” say Daniel Kettiger, a legal expert who wrote a piece called: “The Bare Facts: On the Criminal Prosecution of Nude Hiking”.

But the city’s justice minister claimed he can draft something that would penalize these people and it could cost them up to $170.

Jackass.

In Life Matters, Size: Tall on July 29, 2008 at 11:43 am

The strange thing is, while I feel like someone’s already badmouthing me, anger is still not there. I am letting go. Surprisingly easily. Maybe it’s because I find the need to draw the line between mere storytelling and badmouthing. Until I am able to do that, perhaps I do not have the right to feel any emotions. Relief or anger, it’s something for me to decide later on- IF i get the chance. Otherwise, it might be better to just let things pass and pretend nothing is up. True or not, I’ll leave it all to karma.

What would be most disappointing is to find out that a friend has turned into a complete jackass. Unfair as it may be, at least that’s how I see things at the moment.  Something like “guilty until proven innocent”.

Oil-y.

In Interesting, Size: Tall on July 2, 2008 at 6:09 pm

This is a truly remarkable and satisfying find for the inner dork in me. Not that it took me thousands of clicks on Google to find this, no. I am just amazed at the simple but classy animation. The graphics too, sorta. Courtesy of The Financial Times, following are some tidbits on oil. The first relates to the politics that surround it and the protests that have happened in different part of the world in light of the continuous rise of crude oil prices. To find out more information about each country represented, click on the image to be directed to the FT site.

The next three show the flow of oil, and the biggest producers and consumers. Again for more information, just click the images.

Ateneo TA found dead

I saw this report from my INQ email update by accident, because I usually don’t read what’s in it. I tried to remember who he is but no face I can recall. Apparently, he’s from the same batch and from the same school. SOM, ME, 2006.

48 Years of European Championships

In On Sports, Size: Tall on July 1, 2008 at 5:52 pm

An interesting section in the UEFA Euro 2008 website showed the previous victors of the Euro championships and with some classic, old look, I thought it looked good enough to be put on here. Starting from 1960, when Russia was still part of the USSR (and they won it) till the Spaniards had sweet victory over the Germans just a couple of days ago, once again we see how the Germans almost had it for the 4th time.

Spaces

In Size: Tall on June 21, 2008 at 4:13 am

For being born. For breathing. For living. For aging. For dying.

For looking. For greeting. For speaking. For listening.

For touching. For holding. For feeling.

For cuddling. For spooning. For kissing. For making love.

For breaking up. For crying. For making up.

For thinking. For knowing. For wondering.

For confusing. For questioning.

For agreeing. For disagreeing.

For having. For losing. For winning. For defeating. For loving. For hating.

For becoming close. And for drifting apart.
