Recrap to a Minimum


Recrap: to sum up a discussion composed largely of useless bullshit.



Usage:

Person 1: "Tell me about Ms. Petunia's amazing talent at gold mining!"
Person 2: "It's a rather complicated craft that's passed down through generations, but allow me to recrap..."

Person 3: "What did your mother-in-law say about Skipper's spastic brain damage?"
Person 4: "It's such a pity, but I'll try to recrap what she said for you.."

Everyday is Halloween

This is a late Halloween tribute to the genius that is Tim Burton, who is currently holding an exhibit at one of the most awesome museums in the world, the Museum of Modern Art in New York.

The following photos were borrowed from The Museum of Modern Art, displaying the exhibit installations as they were being put up. The exhibit will run from November 22, 2009 to April 26, 2010, in case any of you decide to drop by.






Speaking of Halloween, last October, I have had the chance to join the ranks of the meanest ghouls, bandits, matronas and Jennifer (of Jennifer's Body) in a Halloween/Pre-Birthday party hosted by none other than the most awesome graphics designer the Philippines has ever known.

Photos have been cropped to conceal identities--we are privy to the secrets of Web overexposure and the dark side of search engine optimization and photo manipulation. If only you knew what we could do to your identity, IF we wanted to.. Hahahahahaha! (rolling thunder)

Trick or treat?

In our crazy, creative and literary world, where imagination transcends reality, everyday is Halloween day!

"This is Halloween, this is Halloween,
Tender lumpings everywhere,

Life's no fun without a good scare."

-The Nightmare Before Christmas (1993)

I heart long weekends




Reminder for the day

Have a mindful weekend!

As the streets are swept clean of all traces of yesterday's events, as the countless yellow flowers offered as a last goodbye turn to dry, as we return to our everyday routines... Do we look back at August 5, 2009 and simply say, "there was a president who was so loved by her people", or "that was the day that she once again united the entire nation"...

Or do we eternally commemorate the cause and sacrifice that this one person stood and fought for and really think, "this legacy that she has left us, as a people, what can we do to further it for the common good? What can we sincerely do to help in our own little ways? What can we do right now?"

Thank you and goodbye, Mrs. Cory Aquino.

Go Green Advertising

In this ad-congested society,  check out how marketing can take the green route and successfully get their message across. CURB is the first natural media company  that offers media solutions that use natural based products. On their website they posted this question- "Why can't a great media solution be sustainable, natural and highly effective?" 

The good thing is they found an answer to that. Check out how they do it here.  It would be awesome if  more environmental groups can apply these marketing techniques to help strengthen what they stand for.

Take a look at Yawners Corner

At yawner's corner, everybody yawns to say hello. 

Danish photographer Peter Funch,  stakes New York City street corners out for two weeks at a time, taking pictures of passersby from the very same spot. He then uses Photoshop to composite the results into single images. (via BoingBoing)

Funch's work reminds me of the "Where's Waldo?" books, I used to enjoy reading when I was younger. 

Enjoy taking a closer look. :)

Power to the Peeps!

There's no better PMS food in the world than Marshmallow Peeps, 2 boxes (!!!) of which I had to pick up at the cargo place, sent to me by my dear mother.

Army of Peeps: "We stick to the lining of your stomach forever!" (just kidding)

Reliving my childhood years as a sugar junkie, I found myself shoveling one peep after another into my mouth.

Yellow Peep: "Eat me!"


"Yeah, PMS sucks. It's a good thing you have Peeps to stuff in your mouth to keep you from saying mean things to people!" - Sheila

Happy birthday, Sheila!
