(note: as of the moment, i haven't accessed the antho yet. will update this post from time to time. i managed to access the cbz file, but you have to fix some things to properly view my work, as the pages should be read as pairs, as spreads. anyway, i am thinking, i might release a print version soon, since there are errors with regard to the order of the pages. just check the fb page for further updates. update: please check the fb page and its links from time to time, some glitches and stuff are being fixed as we speak. issuu link works fine, i think.

Litrato mula sa ika-11 ng Setyembre*

Tumalon sila mula sa mga sahig na nasusunog—
isa, dalawa, kaunti pa,
taasan pa, babaan pa.

Pinahinto ng sila ng litrato sa hininga,
at ngayo'y pinananatili silang
nakaangat sa lupa patungo sa lupa.

Buo pa rin ang bawat isa,
may natatanging mukha
at nakakubli nang maigi ang dugo.

May sapat pang panahon
upang malagasan ng buhok
at mahulugan mula sa mga bulsa
ng mga susi at mga barya.

Nakapaloob pa rin sila sa saklaw ng hangin,
nakapaloob sa bruhula ng mga lugar
na kabubukas pa lang ngayon.
    Dalawang bagay lang ang magagawa ko para sa kanila—
ilarawan ang huling paglalakbay na ito
at huwag nang magdagdag ng huling linya.

about "its Motors in service"



The hybrid work "its Motors in service" uses as source text the transcription of two speeches delivered by an entity who projects himself as heir to the leadership of his parents, by employing empty words without action, as consequence of roughly imbibing the teachings of his parents. Machines humans dream of and visions machines imagine intervene the encoded articulation of the said entity. The words, upon the interruption of images, are then silenced, violated, sliced, devoured and regurgitated into a work against words spoken by an entity that does not work, and thus deserves to be phased out.

originality, ownership

"I am an amalgamation of many things: books I've read, movies I've seen, television shows I've watched, conversations I've had, songs I've sung, lovers I've loved. In fact, I'm a creation of so many people and so many ideas, to the point where I feel I've actually had a few original thoughts and ideas; to think that what I consider to be 'mine' was 'original' would be blindingly egotistical." - excerpt transcribed from uncreative writing, re-framed as a blog entry. meanwhile, here's an amalgamation initiated by tekstong bopis, supported by machine language, constructed using building blocks from a note.

prompt thought balloon

thought repaso will sort of, really, revise and/or perhaps rectify how things are meant to be received. what to give and when to give in and how to grieve or perhaps how to gracefully proceed toward the yearned entropy--these are recurring questions begging for answers, no matter how inept.

Pagtalak at Pagpapatahimik: Kuro-kuro sa "Komedya" at sa Charlie Hebdo

(May disclaimer ako sa ibaba. Nasa ibaba dahil ayokong nasa itaas dahil baka makaantala sa mambabasa. Burador ito.)

Tunay ngang sandata ng walang kapangyarihan ang satire, pero nagagamit ito minsan ng mga makapangyarihan para lalong gipitin ang mga api [1]. Bilang dibuhista, muntik na rin akong mahulog sa bitag ng mabilis na pag-husga sa karahasan pero may nabasang nakapagpakunot-noo [2]. Mali ang pumatay. Dapat ipaglaban ang karapatan ng LAHAT sa pamamahayag. Walang debate rito. Kaso, sa aktwal, ang pagpatay sa mga gitnang-uring dibuhista at ang pagkundena rito ang tanging nabibigyan ng espasyo. Pinalalampas ang pagpatay sa mabababang-uring walang trabaho--sibilyan man o ang mga walang ibang pagpipilian kundi ang mag-armas tulad ng mga Muslim sa Pransya. Pero iba at mahaba pa itong usapin.

Ang punto: kalayaan sa pamamayahag ang anumang kritisismo tulad nitong aking isinulat at ng ginawa ng Charlie Hebdo [3]. Bukod sa bakit sila pinaslang, sino nga ba ang pumaslang sa kanila? Sino ang makikinabang? Ang aping mamamayang Muslim ba talaga? Mukhang hindi, lalo at hindi rin nila ito ginusto [4].
