this is the second wave of questions i got from miss panalyah… i hope answering
these questions will help people understant/know me a little bit more.
1. What kind of art are you into?
art? art? what is art? haha when ever i answer things like this, i unconsiously
analyze the questions. i look like i’m arguing with the questions. but i think i
just want to be able to answer the questions properly and for me to do that, i need
to understand the question asked first. hmm… going back to MY question, what is
art? i believe that everything has an artistic (if i may use the term) side to it.
the aesthetic work of this perfume bottle, the cool image this pair of sunglasses
portray, even the artwork of the wrapper of this snack i’m eating now. everything
is art, well in my opinion.
but to be a little bit more mainstream, i love music. the carpenters, the beatles,
kanye west, bonethugs n harmony, cream, pantera, metallica, rush, black sabbath,
yes, dream theater, arctic monkeys and a whole lot more. i’m not the type of person
who just says that he loves music but all the music he listens to is pop music. i’m
not saying that pop music is not good music or anything like that. i’m just saying
that popular music is popular music. what about it do you actually love except for
it being catchy?
i also enjoy going to museums and experiencing different artworks there. i’m not an
art buff or anything like that. i dont know the difference between a van gogh and a
picaso and other people famous artists. but, i still enjoy going to museums. i
enjoy the quiet athmosphere. i enjoy seeing different kinds of art. paintings,
digital art works, sculptures, post modern things. almost all kinds of art that i
usually see in museums. i’m just not particularly a fan of pottery, portraits,
dance. there are some more kinds of art that i dont particularly like, but i dont
know what they are called.
2. Would you say you are in love with yourself?
in love with myself? maybe before… but not now… i’m unhappy with my life now.
it is pathetic. i have a job, loving parents, fun brothers, i’m taking up my
masters class, financially ok, relatively good health. almost everything everybody
wants, but i’m still unhappy. disgusting me
3. If you could change anything about yourself, what would it be?
myself? is this physical? mental, emotional? financial? or something about my life?
anything about myself? maybe i need to be more positive. to have mental peace.
4. If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be and why?
live anywhere in the world? some of the places i like to go to before i die is
itally, japan and america. and what they have in common is that their food looks so
great. :D i’d love to live in those places for a while so i may indulge. :D but if
i really have to live in a place? i still live here in the philippines. most of my
friends are here. most of my family are here. what else can you ask for? money?
yeah, i want that too…
5. List 5 of your favorite movies, and why you love them.
oh man. i love movies so much and i dont think i can list just 5 movies. hmm…
maybe what i can do is list 5 actors that i love?
one of my favorite actors may be al pacino. i love his passion and his intensity in
movies. of course i’m going to mention “god father”. i love his facial expressions.
i love how you can see his intensity on his face. i love his serious roles. i’m not
a fan of some of his attempts in comedy. haha
next may be is kevin spacey. i love his roles and how he portrays them. he has this
certain look that makes me think. he has a deep look that strikes me. the look that
you know nothing and he has all the cards in his hands. the movie “Se7en” got me
hooked on kevin spacey. also the movie “Usual Suspects”. watch those two movies if
you like thrillers.
i also like tom hanks for some reason. hahaha i think it is the hopeless romantic
in me. i love his movies with meg ryan. “sleepless in seatle” and “you’ve got mail”
are the movies that i loved tom hanks. i like the “normal” guy meeting a normal
girl and crap like that.
(btw, i got the pictuer on deviant art)
my guilty pleasure actor is nicolas cage. i dont know why but i like this guy’s
movies. during the 1990s and some early 2000s. haha i dont like some of his
relatively new works like “national treasure” and things like that. one of my
favorite movies of him are “8mm” and “bringing out the dead”. “8mm” is one of the
first movies that i loved when i was a young boy. i remember that i watched it on a
local channel and i remembered the title of the movie because i really liked it. i
downloaded it when i was in college and it is still one of my favorite movies of
last but not the least is alfred hitchcock. haha yeah yeah he is not an actor. i
love his style and his “macguffins”. (look it up in wikipedia or better yet, watch
some of his movies) “lifeboat”, “strangers on a train”, “dial m for murder” and my
personal guilty pleasure, “dr.strangelove”
6. If you could have a superpower, what would it be?
i’ve always fantasized about this when i was a child. up to now, i’m consistent in
my answer. i’ve always wanted to control time. i wanted to stop time and go back in
time. i could just imagine the power. bwahahahah evil laugh. hmm… i always
imagined that i will rob banks and cheat on exams so that life will be easy for me.
i’ve never really looked into what might happen to me if i have this “power”. but
hey fuck it, if i have that much power, i’ll just cheat through life. ofcourse some
things must be done properly. like enjoy time with friends, skateboarding and
things like that. i also want to stop time so that i’ll finally have enough time
for the things i like. reading and sleeping. haha
7. What would your ideal holiday be like?
hmm… that is a tough one. maybe the question is about a vacation? i mean, a trip?
i love beaches (with an “ea”) and i love the tranquility i feel when i’m there. so
maybe my ideal holiday is sitting on a beach chair, smoking a cigarette, drinking
red wine (i’m not particular) and having a lovely discussion with someone. ofcourse
the ideal is to be with someone i love. but saddly, that person does not exist
my former flame, the person who i was with for 4 years now has a partner.
not that i disapprove or anything like that. i’m really happy for her because i
know that she is really happy now. my
first love also has change so much that i
dont know her anymore and we are not talking. so i dont know who i’d love to be
with but i guess that part is a mistery now…
8. Do you believe in any faith/religion?
no. faith is the belif in something without proof. i’m not the type of person who
believes in something without proof. i believe that religion was created and is
maintained to keep people in check. i believe that religion was created to teach or
to guide people between right and wrong. i believe that religion was created to be
able to give hope to the hopeless. i am a person who knows how to show respect. and
i show respect where respect is due.
9. What was your favourite subject in school?
when i was in gradeschool and highschool, my favorite subject was dismissal. haha
but when i was in college, i enjoyed my psychology courses for two things. one is
that i really enjoy learning about the theories about how people think. i enjoy
reflecting about the things i see and the things i’ve learned. the second reason is
that since it is a lecture class, i am forced to sit down on my chair for 3 hours
on end. it gave me time to write. i would write essays and poems at the back of my
notebooks. i’ve filled many notebooks with a lot of these literary crap and i thank
my classes for that. hahaha
10. Last but not least, tell me in your own words, what kind of person are you?
this might be the most difficult question here. i cant really say what kind of a
person i am. based on the things people say about me, they say that i’m an rational
person. they say that i’m a serious person. they also say that i’m a crazy person.
i guess i agree with them. but i also like to see myself as a fun loving person who
loves to reflect (sometimes too much), a person who enjoys meeting and talking with
new people. i’m a person who wants to get as muuch as i can out of this life.
