Back from the brink…

Thank God it’s over.

After a grueling week of dextrose and having not a lot to do I am finally free!

The blood platelets are now stable.

Praise God.

Dengue has now been defeated. I am again well and good if not for a wedge of emptiness in my heart that right now continues to bleed…

my usual day...

Some thoughts on veganism
Tuesday, August 12, 2008
Most of the people who read this knows of my work at an environmental NGO and I think there's such a big fuss about how environmentalists ought to be vegans. I for one am not vegan because I believe in biodiversity and in symbiotic relationships in the ecosystems, if veganism is really the natural way of how things work it would then be tantamount to saying that lions behave 'un-naturally' because they hunt and eat meat of their prey (hence there's a symbiotic relationship between the lion and the prey). Just now I stumbled upon another insight about veganism and why I am not a vegan, another is that veganism is a consumer activity here's a portion of an interesting article about veganism from Infoshop:
Thus, a vegan diet may be seen as a sensible response by people who want to minimize their involvement with the meat industry in an industrial capitalist society. But this is not a universal context, whereas veganism markets itself as a universal solution. PETA has declared that you can't be a meat-eating environmentalist, and most vegans believe this line or toe it explicitly. What vegans have failed to think out is that industrial capitalism has not existed forever, nor have human societies always been ecocidal or abusive towards animals. In fact, to avoid eurocentric conclusions vegans must admit that the first and the very best environmentalists eat meat. I refer to a number of indigenous societies, past and present, that have the best track record of living in harmony with the environment and seeing other species as their extended families. Especially since vegans put so much emphasis on the impacts of an individual's lifestyle, they (being nearly all residents of wealthy countries) are deluding themselves and the broader communities to which they advertise their image as the preeminent environmentalists, considering that these omnivorous non-capitalist societies had a much lower ecological footprint and a much deeper affinity for animals than anyone socialized in an industrial society can ever gain in their lifetimes.

if john meyer's a pervert...then jack johnson's a douchebag!
Thursday, August 07, 2008
I know I'm treading on dangerous ground here but to be honest I feel like I can no longer hide the disgust that I feel whenever I'd see those two on television or hear their music. Plain and simple I hate them I hate the way John Meyer disguises his perverted look at ladies by calling their bodies wonderlands, I hate Jack Johnson plainly because I think the world has had enough of the likes of him.

Funny thing is that I think people would expect more of me when addressing these two artists they'd say: "give them a chance and they'll grow into you..." but I hate them. Come to think about it I also hate Incubus and Jason Mraz but not as much as I hate John and Jack. I hate them in the same way that every Irish person that I meet hates U2 and Bono. They suck in my book plainly because I think they suck. In fact I found more reason to hate them when my bandmate, Ten mentioned that she saw a photograph of Jack Johnson wearing no socks to a pair of what seems like Sperry topsiders, I mean what year is this 1992?(!), maybe he just stepped out of his Mitsubishi Lancer or something.

I hope they die soon. I hope more people would choose to listen more to Bright Eyes, Rocky Votolato, Bob Dylan, Pedro the Lion or even Dashboard Confessional...

As for John Meyer I remember this episode in Seth MacFarlane's Family Guy where Chris under the influence of his living zit vandalized Goldman's Pharmacy with the phrase: "THAT'S ENOUGH JOHN MEYER"

Indeed that's enough John you're a pervert and I know it.

Maybe its time for everyone to start thinking that these two doesn't represent intelligent music.

They're just lousy posers.

a good question for users
Tuesday, August 05, 2008
people say they like because its like having your own website to host all your contents. so a good question perhaps that we should ask them is that whether they need a website or not. because if they answer 'no' its all but logical to conclude that maybe the user doesn't really need a website... ;)
