About Walter Mitty

This is not a film review. I did love the movie but I think for all the different reasons. (If it still counts, then, the view in this movie is mad awesome.) This is about Iceland, and Greenland, which for a long time was my dream destination. But somehow because of a petty reason I decided to chuck. I have been wanting to go to Iceland since Heima came out. You know, part Sigur Ros movie that shows them playing […]

‘Gravity’ (2013)

Even if inside you feel you want to die, there’s a bigger life impulse that keeps us alive.  (Alfonso Cuaron) OK.  I might as well write it all down, while my nausea has not worn off.  Well, actually it is not from the movie, yet some form of sudden mild vertigo came to me.  YET, this dizziness (and any mention of any planet names) actually brings me back to that 120 minutes of pure elevated, out of this world ride […]

The Time We Had to Abandon the Steps that’s gone too far

I can only walk with no stop, i look up and saw some dust-like amber following me like trails What did i run away from? I have not remembered for quite some time. But i know i belong. two miles away is where the foliage stops. Then someplace not unlike the journey here, lies. i promise this land […]

Opus 23, 36 and Donald’s Woes

Opus 23 is playing again and yet again trying to put my ears and mind to a test of allegiance. Will I ever crack and spill to recurring ennui? Not right now. the right amount of solemn desolation dignified through gentle vibrations of piano keys. The only music that can bring me to prompt tears. Still and all a pattern of staccato sound is resounding from the bathroom, it helps me think. drip. drip. “What have you done now?” “for the […]
