.:Today's LSS:.

I've been looking for this song's lyrics for ages...

by Bamboo

Anong balita sa radyo at TV
Gano'n pa rin, kumakapa sa dilim
Minsan naisip ko nang umalis na lang dito
Kalimutan ang lahat, lumipad, lumayo, oh

Bato-bato sa langit, ang tamaan huwag magalit
Alam naman natin kung sino ang tuso
Sa bawat sumpang umiiyak, singil ko ay piso
Sa bawat lumuluhang dukha, alay ko'y dugo

May kasama ka kapatid, kaibigan
Hangga't ako'y humihinga, may pag-asa pa

Hallelu, hallelujah
Sinong sawa, sinong galit
Sumigaw ngayong gabi
Hallelu, hallelujah

Run the blood of mine to convey
To see these faces in front of me
Yes, we have, and we begin
We are the scars from within
I'm ashamed of what I become in the mirror
The face of my one true enemy
Hallelujah, some music
Let's take control
If I have to take this message door to door
See myself in every soul
With the mission, I'll make this my personal mission
Set me from the fire, from the fire
Set me from the fire

Ngayong gabi, ako ang sundalo mo
Habang ika'y tulog, ako'y gising nakabantay sa iyo
Kasi mahal kita, kita mo
Pag-ibig ko sa 'yo lamang

[Repeat REFRAIN]
[Repeat CHORUS]

.:Isang Buwan Na Rin Pala...:.

Isang buwan na rin pala mula nang naging kami.

Isang buwan na rin pala mula nang nag-umpisa ang gulo dahil sa nakaraan.

Sa harap ng lahat ng mga pagsubok, sa harap ng lahat ng pighati at dalamhati, alam kong hindi ako pababayaan.

Mahal na mahal ko siya. Hindi ko sukat akalaing mamahalin din niya ako.

Sa ating pagdiwang ng isang buwang pagiging tayo, nais ko lamang ipaalala sa iyo na ang puso ko, ang kabuuan ng aking lakas at mga damdamin, ay iyong-iyo lamang.

Anumang mga balakid ang kahaharapin natin, kakayanin sapagkat magkasama tayo sa luha at ligaya.

.:Because I Got Interviewed By Elbert…:.

I like being interviewed, so sue me. So if you want to ask me five more questions, feel free to reply to this post with those questions.

Conversely, if you want to be interviewed, feel free to also tell me so in your reply.

1. For your Asian Fetish: a Chinese girl who you really like and who you are fairly convinced could really be The One has, unfortunately, parents who don't like you because you're not Chinese. Defend yourself, and persuade them to accept you as family. (Would you even bother, and if not, why?)

First things first: the “Yellow Fever” has been officially dead since May 5. But yes, my girlfriend is Chinese. I’ve thought about it before, and I will definitely fight for a relationship with her even if her parents would go against me. I would simply have to tell them as politely as I could that love has nothing to do with race, and for them to see me as a person before they become so quick to judge my capability of making their daughter happy. At this point, I have given it quite a bit of thought, but I haven’t really come up with anything concrete to tell them. Hopefully, learning Fookien might help me somewhat.

2. I've invented a time machine (worship me!), enabling you to travel through time to meet and have tea (or sodomize) with a great philosopher. Who do you visit and what do you talk about?

Interesting. I’m torn between meeting up with Heidegger, Kant, Sartre, Kierkegaard, or Confucius. I’ll go for Kant, as he really is my favorite. I’d want to talk to him and see what his thoughts on religion happen to be. I’d also like to toss some of the common ways his Philosophy has been repudiated by other thinkers, and see what he has to say about it. Kantian morality has a lot of enemies throughout history and the poor man never got to defend himself against most of these criticisms.

3. Is getting into a relationship with someone just because there's no one else around unethical? Explain.

I would think so. Mainly because one person has become as good as the other. Admittedly, if my going for a girl were merely a result of my erstwhile “Yellow Fever” instead of something far more significant and far more concrete, then the person I would go for is nothing more than a mere means to my end. Going for someone just because there’s no one else, settling, to put it more bluntly, is unethical in that you are liable of just using that person as a means to your end. Turning that person into a meantime girl/boy definitely doesn’t ring as ethical to me, and it doesn’t take any amount of brilliance to figure that out.

4. Is the term "common sense" an oxymoron? Explain.

Not really. “Common” sense is actually quite common. It’s just ironic that the smarter people get, the less they seem to have it. Fret not, there aren’t that many smart people to speak of…

Seriously, I don’t think it’s an oxymoron. It takes a while, but people do “get it” eventually, no matter how deficient they may seem to be of “common sense”.

5. Is there such a thing as an ethical crime? Explain.

Of course there is. Ethics, morality, and law are all different things. One can do things legally but unethically. For instance, it’s not against the law for a principal to campaign for his own son for student council president, but it’s obviously unethical. Conversely, it’s illegal for one to lie while under oath in the courtroom, but it can be argued that it’s ethical to do so if the life of your family is under threat.

There are a lot of crimes that can be “ethical”. It all revolves around knowing the difference between what can be done (Legal.) and what should be done (Ethical.).

.:Diary Recap, Monday, 06 June, 2005:.

It's times like these when you realize who your true friends are. I'm infinitely grateful to every single person who has been there for me in these trying times.

After acting like the living dead with how little sleep I had during the Jazz festival last Friday, I at least had a decent amount of sleep going into my first day of the graveyard shift...

... Only to find out that the station signs on at five in the morning on Mondays.

In any case, I caught a nap, then did my regular boardwork, although my microphone wasn't working for a good chunk of the show. Nonetheless, I think I can get the hang of doing the show at such an ungodly hour....

After hanging around Robinson's Galleria for a while when it opened and talking to JayBee after the longest time, I went back to the station, and the meeting was set to begin in a few minutes at China Star. It was a lunch meeting, and all things considered, the meeting answered a lot of questions for me.

For one, Robi was indeed coming back, and so was Rye. However, Robi was going to now work in tandem with Anne, while Rye will probably have George as a partner. Jda and Gia are going to be working together so that Gia can further improve herself, while I'd be doing the graveyard shift from 2 to 6 in the morning because that'd ensure I can't do chatting too much. Pretty clever of them.

In any case, I asked them about the possibility of going full-time under them, and hopefully, it'd all work out well. I'd really rather work eight straight hours in WAVE than four hours there, and work elsewhere for another four after a three-hour gap from 6 in the morning to 9.

All in all, it's a fairly safe bet that things will be very different from this point on... I'm just grateful I won't have to be alone going through all of these changes.

.:Diary Recap, Tuesday, 07 June, 2005:.

So technically, this is really my first day in the graveyard shift, and I must say that I enjoyed it a lot.

I've had a voracious appetite for reading up on comic books news as of late, but I guess I just can't muster up a budget to collect House Of M or Infinite Crisis, really. That being said, I still can't begin to understand why so many Avengers had to be killed off, and if there really is no chance to bring them back. Hawkeye, for instance, wasn't so bad... I could be wrong, though.

Nonetheless, my first day went smoothly. I decided to be nice and take in callers off-air, and they just came pouring. I seem to have a female demographic cornered, and that being said, I'd definitely want to play up to that. It was really fun hearing from the listeners, and I especially appreciated what they had to say, as some of them either tell me stories or ask me for advice. Felt like a mini-Love Notes for me, which wasn't so bad, except sir Joe has that market covered already... heh.

In any case, I really enjoyed my boardwork, and most of my songs were all requests I made way for. It was definitely enjoyable for me to cater to them all... hopefully, this kind of enthusiasm keeps up, and I'd definitely want to be able to find my niche with this show...
