That Awkward Moment When The Cover Is Better Than The Original

I’m the type of guy who hates mainstream music, music that sounds rubbish and music made for monetary reasons. So everyday I search the internet for independent artists to fill my ears with musical goodness. I’ve come across plenty of great talents and they can topple ANY mainstream artist. Their music is so pure and it makes Justin B. look like a little girl (even though she already is).

They all have their original compositions; but sometimes if not most of the time, they post a cover song of a particular artist. Let’s take the music of Gaga for example. I really do not like Gaga, they say she’s not mainstream, they say that she’s redefining music as we know it. If she was making such amazing music, then why do I think that this cover of Judas by Jack Conte is so much better than the original?

How I Put Up With My Weekly University Torture…

We have this thing our university called The Civic Welfare Training Service (CWTS) under the National Service Training Program the government established in 2001.  So what we do basically is going to an economically depressed area and help them out. We gain experience and understanding with what they go through in their lives; we try to take some of that load off their shoulders. We do that for 8 weeks, then we never get to see them again. Which is a good thing for me.

There are two courses under NSTP, one is the said above and the other is ROTC. We all know that one. I didn’t join ROTC because Continue reading “How I Put Up With My Weekly University Torture…”

Greyson Chance is an amazing artist/How he reminded me of the 12-year-old me

Honestly, he beats JB by a looooooooooong shot. He’s made 3 original songs posted in YouTube I think, but none of them were recorded properly so the sound sucks. This song however, isn’t. It’s Waiting Outside the Lines acoustic ver., which I found better than the album ver. The lyrics are fantastic and whenever I listen to it and read the lyrics, it feels like the 12-year-old me is talking to me (through the lyrics) ‘Cause when I was 12, I was very unique yet extremely smart. I didn’t care much about what people said to me then ’cause I knew I was unstoppable. But then again I was only 12 and those stupid fucking Filipino bastards broke me and my ideals and turned me into a depressed, confused, broken-spirited boy who now…. just wants to fit in.

The lyrics here basically explained who and what I was when I was 12 (and younger) and is reminding me that that “thing” is still inside of me, waiting, just waiting.

Greyson Chance – Waiting Outside the Lines Lyrics

You’ll never enjoy your life,
living inside the box
You’re so afraid of taking chances,
how you gonna reach the top?

Rules and regulations,
force you to play it safe
Get rid of all the hesitation,
it’s time for you to seize the day

Instead of just sitting around
and looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
the time is now

I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

Try to have no regrets
even if it’s just tonight
How you gonna walk ahead
if you keep living blind

Stuck in my same position,
you deserve so much more
There’s a whole world around us,
just waiting to be explored

Instead of just sitting around
and looking down on tomorrow
You gotta let your feet off the ground,
the time is now, just let it go

The world will force you to smile
I’m here to help you notice the rainbow
Cause I know,
What’s in you is out there

I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting,
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

I’m trying to be patient (I’m trying to be patient)
the first step is the hardest (the hardest)
I know you can make it,
go ahead and take it

I’m Waiting, waiting, just waiting I’m waiting
I’m waiting, waiting, just waiting
I’m waiting, waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines
Waiting outside the lines

A short thought on the Philippines

I don’t love the Philippines, but I don’t hate it either. Although I AM ashamed to call myself a Filipino (I always have) and this disgusting Filipino blood that flows through every inch of my body, I detest it. I don’t consider myself a Filipino and on good grounds.

I like the Philippines as a country, just the country. The landscapes, beaches and forests are amazing. The animals and all the little critters that scamper around that eat each other are fantastic. The Philippines is a beautiful country, no doubt about that. But then why do I only LIKE it (as a country)? Easy, I’ve seen better.

I LOATHE the Philippine Government. I hated it ever since I came here. I saw poverty, corruption, ect. ect. I mean, seriously, what type of government would let you vote an a college dropout action star as the President? Isn’t that just fucked up?

How can I love the Philippines if the people who govern it, SUCK? I’d rather take my chances with Canada.

And another note, I just read this amazing article by Daniel Wagner. Here’s a snippet “If the Philippines wants to get its act together and live up to its potential, it needs to demand more of itself. It can achieve this by stopping making excuses for its failures and ending its acceptance of the lowest common denominator. President Aquino promised to put an end to nepotism and corruption in government. The people should make sure he does this. When the police screw up a hostage rescue, the people responsible should be fired. And when a beauty queen blows an attempt to become the glory of the Philippine people, it should be recognized as such.” That’s just a part of it, read (I’m not asking you to read it, I’M TELLING YOU TO READ IT) and hopefully, you Filipinos get hurt. I’m not, cause I’m with this guy. If you think I sound cocky, that’s your “Filipino pride” talking.

Flame me, but you know that Daniel Wagner and I are right. RIGHT?
