10 years ago today we uploaded our first piece of content that was intended only to be online. Prior to that we made various feature films when we were teenagers for film festivals, but the internet, that was the future.
This was before social media was social media, before there was a YouTube,…

Reflecting on Unclear News

The latest unclear news woke up my truth-seeking instinct yet again.

As the TV comes to life

And as the newspapers enter my sight,

I sense a fog spreading out

From the unclear headlines that I can’t seem to count.

Which are truths?

Which are lies?

Turtles are carrying the scales of justice

Or maybe they’re crocodiles in a palace?

The fog is blocking my sight.

Did I just hear someone cry?

Which are truths?

Which are lies?

I see a lion

Being struck down by a tiger.

Tobby and Dining in UPD

Eating delicious and filling meals also reminds me of the poor around me, and I want to do my best in helping them.

From little peeks on jeepney rides and classes in the Diliman campus of the University of the Philippines, we’ll now move on to dining in UP Diliman.

Before I started staying in bedspaces during class days, I ate so much food back at home. Even now, I tend to eat so much when I’m eating food in places that don’t require me to pay money for the meals. Like, yeah, I do try to control myself, but I…

The Gallery of Unclear Oral Communication

Here are some reminders regarding clear oral communication, nutshellcrackers.

Here are some comics that I drew for a group report in Communication 3 (English) class that went really well (We needed to improve in making the audience participate with us reporters, though). Along with them are reminders regarding clear oral communication.

Use sensible language and remember to use proper grammar, or else people may get the wrong idea.

Use sensible language and remember to use proper grammar, or else people may get the wrong idea.

Be specific when you're expressing what you want to say. And if someone's talking to you, keep your ears and heart open and listen to what they have to say.

Be specific when you’re expressing what…

Kurt Vonnegut: 16 Rules For Writing Fiction
1. Use the time of a total stranger in such a way that he or she will not feel the time was wasted.
2. Give the reader at least one character he or she can root for.
3. Every character should want something, even if it is only a glass of water.
4. Every sentence must do one of two things — reveal character or advance the action.
5. Start as close to the end as possible.
6. Be a sadist. No matter how sweet and innocent your leading characters, make awful things happen to them — in order that the reader may see what they are made of.
7. Write to please just one person. If you open a window and make love to the world, so to speak, your story will get pneumonia.
8. Give your readers as much information as possible as soon as possible. To heck with suspense. Readers should have such complete understanding of what is going on, where and why, that they could finish the story themselves, should cockroaches eat the last few pages.
9. Find a subject you care aboutand which you in your heart feel others should care about.
10. Do not ramble.
11. Keep it simple. Simplicity of language is not only reputable, but perhaps even sacred.
12. Have guts to cut. Your rule might be this: If a sentence, no matter how excellent, does not illuminate your subject in some new and useful way, scratch it out.
13. Sound like yourself. The writing style which is most natural for you is bound to echo the speech you heard when a child.
14. Say what you mean. You should avoid Picasso-style or jazz-style writing, if you have something worth saying and wish to be understood.
15. Pity the readers. Our stylistic options as writers are neither numerous nor glamorous, since our readers are bound to be such imperfect artists.
16. You choose. The most meaningful aspect of our styles, which is what we choose to write about, is utterly unlimited.
