Eraserheads --- the beatles of Pinoy Gen X


Yesterday evening, while I was inside Alberto's car (with Baby Biancs (soon to have her own baby)), we were listening to the Eraserheads CD and we were chatting about how we were pissed that we missed the reunion concert. In the midst of our nostalgic storytelling, Biancs was laughing when we realized that Alberto and I were in college while she was still in elementary during the peak days of the Eheads.. ha!

Nostalgic Emo while inside the car...

The Eheads band dude, defined who were are and in my mind, I was transported 13 years ago, to the 17-year old moi, in UP, clutching the newly bought Cutterpillow album tape! waiting for the Eheads concert at the Sunken garden. I was so young, and so indealistic.

My favourite Eheads song is "Minsan" because as a UP dormer, I can relate to each word on that song. My UP years were my happiest and the friends I made during that time, I still have with me until today. We don't see each other often but when we do, we are young again, wearing mga butas-butas at kupas na damit with 150 pesos on our wallets. Those were the days...


"minsan tayo ay naging
tunay na magkaibigan
minsan ay parang wala nang bukas sa buhay natin
inuman sa magdamag na para bang tayo'y mauubusan
sa ilalim ng bilog na buwan
mga tiyan nati'y walang laman
ngunit kahit na walang pera
ang bawat gabi'y anong saya.."



Watching this clip, gave me goosebumps, and there were tears in my eyes... I have to catch part II of this concert..



Sa lahat ng kabilang sa henerasyon namin... wala pa ring tatalo sa Eheads..

AMEN!

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!

Hello, it's me!

It's been awhile since I have shared something on this space about my thoughts and my life. Well, where do I start? Maybe just like an old good friend, I will try to give you some highlights on the past years when I was not blogging.

The biggest thing that happened to me so far was I got my Australian citizenship. I know right? I know that it may not be a big deal to others but for me, this is something that I have tried to work on for the past 5 years.  My kababayans might say that I am ungrateful, but we cannot discount the fact that with a blue passport from a country like Australia, I can travel to many countries - visa free without immigration officers trying to catch my eye and check if I am planning to do something illegal on their country.

No offense, but every time I stand on the immigration line going into another country, my heart always work double/triple time because I am too anxious to be deported back to my country even if I know that I have the proper visa.
