Tumba-tumba

Tumba-tumba

This was taken from an old colleague’s rest house in Batangas when we went there for vacation years ago.

Tumba-tumba is the Tagalog word for rocking chair. It is something very common in Filipino and/or Asian houses. The best past time is probably sitting in it in the most breezy part of the house, reading a book.

Drugs and Killings

The recent happenings in my country is like something out of a shounen manga arc, or an RPG game. It’s like I’m living in the Holy Britannian Empire or Dressrosa or something.

So, if I wanted someone dead, I can just kill him, insert drugs within his body (to frame him for it), and then later, claim that he’s a pusher. And NOBODY would think I’m wrong. Because as far as people are concerned, the person I killed is just some random drug pusher and IT’S TOTALLY OKAY to kill drug pushers. Never mind that killing people is a heinous crime, never mind that that person who got killed might just be some poor guy who was framed, and never mind that we have actual functional laws for these kind of things, but are being ignored.

It’s so barbaric that I feel like I’m living in the Bronze Age. I seriously do not know what to think of it. Even Game of Thrones have proper trials and, at times, trial by combat. But in this country, if you’re a suspect, people could kill you randomly without remorse. And worse, they even jeer on you and tell you that you deserve to die without trial or even the right to defend yourself, if these accusations are even true.

This is what’s happening to a totally religious and Catholic-centered country — one of the two countries left in the entirety of Asia.

Good going, dear President. I blame you for all of this because you started it. People are mimicking you and think that these things are okay, and that they are right and just. I believe in the change that you were campaigning for when you were running. The kind of change that will bring us all in a downward spiral to hell.

PS: The second coming of Jesus Christ is upon us.

Goth

Goth transcends time and fashion. There’s never a specific style, and there never will be, because everything falls to one’s individuality.

People who say “too costumey” to a person’s choice of clothing doesn’t understand that it’s not a costume, rather, that person’s individuality. And you have no place to say what should and should not be worn, because there are no rules that says so, to begin with.

Being a Goth is more than dressing up in black clothes, listening to haunting musics and writing dark poetry. So let’s just stop all these “Gothier than thou” attitude. Because to be honest, neither of us is. I am no better than you. And you, no better than me.

GameOPS Reborn!

GameOPS‬ has been reborn! And that phoenix image/logo is really cool, along with GameOPS’s old logos.

So. It’s July 1st and we just relaunched our old website/blog where we geek out about lots of things. (My history with the group is in a previous post.) The newly resurrected website has a fresh and sleek web 2.0-ish looking logo and a responsive layout that is also mobile friendly. We (I didn’t really, not that much) worked really hard for it and for once, seriously planned about it, so you should take a visit of it. We have a lot of new posts to the point of spamming, though we did lose a lot because of the downtime.

So here’s the post from the official Facebook, that I copy and pasted:

GameOPS‬ is officially back from the dead! Follow us on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram to be updated on the latest news.

Oh, and I should tell you, our friend JM made this really cool Duterte Ipsum tool. It’s like Lorem Ipsum with Duterte stuff on it. For those who doesn’t know, Duterte is the new president of the Philippines, effective yesterday until 6 years from now.
