Act of Randomness

Last month, I finally had the courage to try something new (because I was bored)!

Guess what I did?!

No?

Well, I tried signing up to an online dating website. lol~

At first, it was all just a random act of boring-ness so I thought “Why the hell not?”

I checked several profiles. Joined the other active members in the forum by posting random videos and gifs, and welcoming newbies like me. Sending out simple “Hi’s” and “Hello’s” to people who are only looking for friendships.

After a week of doing so, I finally MADE some friends online which is kind of revitalizing to me because I know I’ve been working too hard, “alone” in my own room and personal bubble.

It was so nice to hear stories from different people around the world. I got to know cultures, places, some plans, some types of people, perspectives, etc.

This made me realize that I am missing a lot of things in this life. And a little part of me still can’t believe that something so random will turn into something wonderful and englightening.

If you asked me several months to join an online dating website, I would surely be offended and give you a big “NO!” But if you will ask me now if I will recommend someone to try online [personal] forums, I will encourage them to give it a go.

You will never know why something exists until you try it for yourself.

I’m glad I did this.

Let It Go (Tagalog Gay Version)

It has been a while but the Frozen soundtrack videos are still hitting the ceiling as though they were just aired yesterday and still keeping the media buzz all around. A lot of versions and covers has arise from different countries. There was even an international version of Let It Go which was sang using 25 different major languages around the world and sounded as though only one singer sang all the lines.

Of course, the Philippines has its own versions as well but what caught my attention is this parody/coming out of a boy version. The Tagalog versions are already amazing but hearing a well applied gay-lingo lyrics was much better than the others. When I first heard this track, I didn’t know that the story of the song was a coming out of a boy until I read the comments. I had to play the video for so many times because I could not understand the lyrics. I even showed it to my cousins and they explained to me what the “jargons” meant. I then showed it to a friend of mine then she told me that this video made her laugh. Yeah, this version is amazing.

The Legend of the Legendary Heroes

Rating: 5star

The Legend of the Legendary Heroes

This series has been in my “Top Picks” for a while now on Netflix so I decided to watch it without even reading the “summary”.

By the way, I don’t like giving my own summary of the story, as Netflix only has the first season, because I am not good with re-telling. *cough* And I’m too lazy to do so… So here, a summary from Funimation itself!

Ryner is not your typical soldier. Cursed with a mysterious, deadly power—the Alpha Stigma—he has been called a monster his entire life. His beautiful partner, Ferris, is a lethal warrior with wits as sharp as her blade. Together they search for the Hero Relics—mystical artifacts that give their owners devastating supernatural abilities—to help their king give hope to a country plagued by political corruption. When they cross arms with a pair of dangerous hunters who wield several of the ancient armaments, Ferris faces Ryner in his most volatile state. As enemies wait in the shadows and blood is spilled amidst a constant threat of mutiny, for these heroes, one move could spark a war.

It’s a shame there will be no Season 2 but I hope they at least have some kind of OVA or a movie maybe (?) planned.

This anime reminds me a lot of Rune Soldier. It was featured in one of my old-time favorite anime magazine when I was in highschool. I didn’t get to finish watching it because ecchi was and still, a bit, banned in Philippines local TV stations. I remembered there were these blurry spots and I thought there were something wrong with our cathode ray tube!
