you may never be or have a husband
You may never have or hold a child
you will learn to lose everything
we are temporary arrangements.

i can't take my mind off of You
I can't remember the last time I saw someone so beautiful that I had to physically restrain myself from staring. I'm not even sure I was all that successful either. I literally haven't been able to think about anything else since then.
The euphoria that overtakes me when I simply think about your smile is something I haven't experienced in a while, and for good reason. This sort of thing can burn out a fellow. It's a constant struggle to balance being realistic with just enjoying the ride. But it's worth it.
Whatever may happen, I'm grateful for this feeling. And grateful for having met you, however briefly that may have been.
TWO BIG SHOWS IN TWO DAYS
Last night I saw the Zsa Zsa Zaturnnah musical at the CCP children's theater, and I have to say that the hype is TRUE, it is the funniest, most amazing thing I have seen in recent memory, as the jokes are hysterical (Ricci Chan's) comic timing is impeccable, the choice of music (soul) is surprisingly apt, and most important of all, it stays true to the spirit of the comic book.
This show has been sold out for weeks, a first for the theater company handling the show, which all but ensures a second run in a hopefully bigger theater. All in all, a super smash hit, and it makes me feel really cool and honored to have known the creator Carl Vergara as he was working on the comic as a labor of love.
As great a comic book as it is, what's so amazing about it is how personal it is. The comic book is all Carl, with no one telling him that the gags were "too gay" or that he had to tone it down to reach a wider audience. As Candice once told me, the key to great art is honesty and excellence. I told him last night as I was gushing after the show that he inspires me to pick up my guitar and finish my album. Congratulations, my friend!!!
Today, an amazing show of a different kind as I watch the WWE RAW show at Araneta Colisseum! WHOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!! It's been a great week so far.
And not just because of those two shows. But I don't want to say anything more lest I jinx it. I'm just waiting for the other shoe to drop as to whether or not to celebrate or be slightly depressed. One person reading this knows exactly what I'm talking about.
I'm holding my breath here.....

Hindi kita mapipilit kung ayaw mo
'wag mo akong isipin bahala ka
Hindi kita mapipigil kung balak mong
Ako'y iwanang nag-iisa
Kung ayaw mo huwag, Kung ayaw mo huwag,
Kung ayaw mo huwag, kung ayaw mo, huwag mo
Kung ayaw mo huwag, Kung ayaw mo huwag,
Kung ayaw mo
Kung ayaw mo, huwag mo.

WATCH THIS CLIP
Hokay, I generally think Mad TV is a bit too obnoxious for me, a lot of the humor derives from people yelling really loud and them expecting it to be funny simply because of that.
That said, this made me laugh my ass off. Thanks to Jason for the link! Will do that long delayed meme real soon hehehe.

watch this trailer
90 minutes of a shirtless Jack Black? I am SO THERE.
I finally have a movie I can't wait to see. Jack Black has always been a manic sort of hottie; Too wild for a boyfriend, but probably all kinds of awesome fun in the sack.
Also: Scary Movie 4. The first one rocked, the second one sucked, the third one was funny again, so I have moderate hopes for the fourth. Even if it doesn't have topless Jack Black.

No huge point to posting these photos; I just think they're really good.
Anyone interested in ordering these ice creams (and many others) or just inquiring about them can send an email.
You know what one of the shittiest feelings in the world is?
Having someone you really, really, REALLY like, and knowing for a FACT that he isn't interested.

AMERICAN IDOL MUSINGS
Watching the latest season. Loving it. I am a bit disappointed though by the lack of "That person's going to make it to the finals!" chills I get from the contestants we've seen so far that I got when I first saw past singers like Nadia Turner, Fantasia, and Carrie Underwood.
That said however, there HAVE been a few people who I think should sail into the top 12 barring an unforeseen meltdown. Paris Bennett is absolutely lovely with a truly unique AND beautiful voice -- too many of the applicants seem to think "unique" automatically equals excellence, which in many cases the word is simply a synonym for "horrendous" -- who should go far. She won me forever when she sang the Dixie Chicks' "Cowboy Take Me Away", one of my favoritest songs from one of my favoritest artists.
There's just something about a black woman singing country, the wonderful dissonance of it, when done well, that is captivating to me. There was another black singer who did "redneck woman" who was nowhere near as good as Paris but got through nontheless. Like Joss Stone singing soul music, or Eminem rapping, the mixing up perceived stereotypical genres is a great way to get attention that I'm suprised more contestants haven't tried.
As of now, Paris is my pick to win it all; my only reservation is that they already have a black female winner, and I think the producers really, really want a guy to win this time. I just haven't seen any guys that rise beyond "meh" status with me.
Except Taylor Hicks. This is my man.
His voice is absolutely lovely, and his passion, his strange charisma, is quite arresting. He's not even my type, but as I told icebitch, the man made me swoon. If I have to get behind any guy this year (hee. I said "get behind".) he's my pick, and I look forward to listening to him in the coming weeks, however long he lasts.
One more audition city to get to, but I'm already bored. I want the Hollywood round boot camp. Those are the most brutal part of the entire season and personally the most compelling part to watch.
