I had to call in sick for work today because I woke up with an upset stomach. By afternoon, I felt better and got bored so I started playing with a video editor Cris just downloaded for me.

I just want to share with you my first shot at editing a video. I am CRAP at this. I swear I have all these ideas in my head but I just don’t know how to edit stuff to form a clip acceptable enough to share. But with this new app, things just got better. Even a dummy like me was able to do it! Somehow, this is beginning to sound like an ad for that app LOL.

Anyway, after all that yada yada, here it is! Please check it out and let me know your feedback. I would love some constructive criticism 🙂

 

Thanks guys! 🙂

 

If you were not amused by the song (and the video!), you are one uptight person. LOL. 😀

I have been super busy with work the past 2 weeks and this blog suffered. I’m trying to bring back my blogging mojo though, so things are looking up.

Cheers to a good week ahead! 🙂

I’m sure you’re all very familiar with Gotye‘s official music video of his popular song, Somebody That I Used To Know.

 

 
Then Walk Off The Earth made a cover of this song.

 

 
Of course, somebody just had to make a parody of this cover. Here’s the awesome Key Of Awesome. They just make me laugh so hard! 😀

 

 
And because it’s just more fun in the Philippines, they made a parody of the parody. When will it ever end?!?

 

 

I may or may not have watched Easy A kabillion times already, heh. 😀 I just love it! And I love Emma Stone to bits. Whenever I feel down (or just bored), I always find myself mumbling this song. I mumble because I’m bad at lyrics like that.

  

 

Do what you want, but you’re never gonna break me.
Sticks and stones are never gonna shake me.

 

I apologize in advance if I get this stuck in your head. 😉

Just recently, I discovered a new form of art – the SPOKEN WORD. Sure, I have attended a couple of poetry reading and cultural nights before but never have I formally recognized Spoken Word as a real form of art.

I used to think that poems were supposed to always rhyme – that poems which do not rhyme are plainly not poetic at all. That’s why I could never get haikus. What with all the focus on counting and not rhyming. It’s stupid, I know. Forgive me and my apparent lack of artistic knowledge.

I am aware that I am not the most knowledgeable and cultured person. That’s why I always strive to learn new things. Thanks to tumblr and bloggers all over the world, I get to see things I would never have discovered on my own.

I saw a video of Sarah Kay performing one of her poems. I have never even heard of her or recognized spoken word as an art before I saw that video. When her performance ended, I couldn’t help myself from clicking on the other suggested videos. Before I knew it, I was totally hanging on to her words and watched at least ten of her performances in a row. I was hooked.

Here is one of my favorites from her:

 

 

And here’s Phil Kaye (Sarah’s co-founder of THE VOICE) with a pretty accurate description of the Spoken Word.
