Love Infinitum...

We watched the Spanish film "La Buena Estrella (Lucky Star)" in Greenbelt 1 as part of the ongoing Spanish Film Festival. Film Festivals never cease to offer something new. Maybe, because our brains were already fried-dry by the mechanized movies churned by Hollywood and foreign film festivals/art films are the coolers to rejuvenate our dying brain cells and hardened hearts.

This movie is very similar in theme to the movie we've seen in a previous European film festival (sorry, brain cells in zzzzz mode, can't remember the title of the french movie)... "Can you really love two people at the same time?"

I've read somewhere that love is like "infinity". We cannot compare two infinities. There is no "less" infinite and "more" infinite. Infinity has no ending, and no beginning. It's not measurable but it's just is. But we all know what infinity is, we understand the concept but we never bother to measure it.

Love is also the same as infinity. "All we need is love!" This I firmly believe. You can really love two people at the same time, but just like infinity, you cannot say that you love one more than the other. The other may offer you stability, companionship while the other can inject zest in your life. You love both of them but there are times that in your journey you need one more than the other and vis-a-vis.

Problem exists because of the problem in language. Mr. Webster offers one word for all these feelings: lust, companionship, friendship, admiration, infatuation, agape, etc.... "LOVE".

This is one of the reasons why I still believe in marriage. It may be a tradition but traditions to humans are what instincts are to animals. They're essential. We direly need them because for instance in marriage, we offer our COMMITMENT to only one person to keep a relationship going even if your heart belongs to someone else.

We fall in and out of love. It's a surety that we will love one person now and then love another... but in marriage we are bonded by commitment. It's what keep families and societies glued together. I think romantic love is overrated (but of course this may be my jadedness and cynicism talking).

A good ending...

At last, there is already a resolution to the settingherfree saga. It took the writer a long time to end it... honestly, I think it's a work of fiction, crafted before valentine's day, to give couple-less individuals a boo-hoo-hoo....

It's just too good to be true... my theory is that it's a creative writing student's thesis or something...

The writer is good... and he has a good imagination. I posted a comment... hope he won't delete it....

Update: He did delete it! So, it's really too good to be true. (Ba't ko sya inaaway? HAHAHA!) I should really get a life... AMEN!

The Iphone experience

Truth be told, I was happy with my glamorous MMS only phone. I can text, I can call and it's handy. But when I begin my relationship with my Iphone, I am a convert to super moder handheld devices.

I literally don't open my laptop anymore when I am at home. I only need my Iphone to check my emails, facebook, update my twitter, watch videos, podcasts, etc. I don't want to work with documents at home so this is something I find so useful.

I am really at awe with its features (you have to understand that I took a very giant leap in technology). The mere fact that I can check emails and update my calendar are useful features - in a major-major way.

Imagine having the convenience of reading the news, downloading time filler games and of course, there's this useful app - FOOD SPOTTING! It can help you find the nearest bakery, bulalohan, etc.

On the other hand, knowing that this device can be tracked can be spooky! Imagine that it has all of your informatio…
