No, Clark, you’re missing the point of the question. Why do I keep that giant penny? Or old costumes, models of the Batmobile? Orphans are collectors, Clark. Losing so much… makes it that much harder to give things up.
I was never missin this…not on this life…pigain na ang wallet, wag pansinin ang mga walang kwentang tsismis…I am gonna watch raimund, buddy, marcus and ely…yup The Eraserheads are gonna do it one more time! This was the band that touched every student and yuppy in their days, singing lyrics that people could really relate to, wether you’re a rebel, a geek, a class clown, a jock or just one of em other guys. And would you look at the crowd, it was like australia’s Big Day Out! and the people…not ur average rock concert were you’ll find rowdy, reckless and craving for attention kids…of course me nahalo pa din…pero yuppie generation tlga ang makikita mo hahaha
Just like everyone, we bet on what the first song was, i personally picked Torpedo for some reason and then when the countdown ended…SA WAKAS! oh yeaahhhh! my friend mark almost one til he changed to Superproxy on the last minute!…It was Alapaap! complete with fireworks! hahaha!…once again everybody was back to their rebellious school days…especially with a line that i always sing out loud!…ANDAMING BAWAL SA MUNDO, SINASAKAL NILA TAYO…BUKSAN ANG PUSO AT ISIPAN…PALIPARIN ANG KAMALAYAN! We sang throughout the night, every song was like pages of a diary for people..cept for those na di alam lahat ang kanta hehe…but it was great, all songs of the 1st set. Inaantay nalang ang bets for last song…And Huling El Bimbo was a popular and very natural and lucrative choice if you and you’re barkada wanted to bet with money haha…but i wanted Minsan para madrama! haha…Pare ko was still much very anticipated too, and I very muched liked it if Poorman’s grave or waiting for the bus was there too.
But then the mood suddenly changed, marcus, raimund and buddy along with ely’s sister announced that Ely was rushed to the hospital and is not able to complete the concert…once again the crowd showed class and maturity this time not by their looks but by how they reacted…no Boos…no out of this world comments…and when asked for a moment of silence…we really gave it and prayed for front man pare ko ely. A very sad moment…this was a night I wanted to forget all the shit this world has to throw to, it was a time I reserved for myself amidst a very choatic phase…much like alcohol but way better. I even thought, was this a sign that maybe you could never back time, could never enjoy life fully..not even a reunion concert of the band that could save lives by merely singing what song you’re heart was singing. Yes, they may have even saved my life too in those days, this is what The Eraserheads was to me…
But when all stress cleared out of my head, I loved it…I’m proud I was there, I’m proud I bought a ticket, just to just even show appreciation to them, kung me pera lang ako bibilin ko yung lahat ng album nila on CD na binebenta dun..dhl ala na ung mga cassette dati! hehe. 1 set was awesome…the second would have KILLED! But still sulit na sulit sya…sayang lang talaga yung ibang song na inaabangan…graabee…KIKILABUTAN ka sa ibang kanta, you can even cry…ganun ang feeling ng andun…we sang through the night with those 4 and they delivered…especially ely…finished the whole set, played a little with the crowd even though he aint feelin a hundred percent at that time. Thanks Man Thank You very much! same goes for marcus,buddy and raimund…I am still gonna be there if you guys decided to do this again…and to those na malungkot pa din because di natapos ang concert…just think of ely singin this…PASENYSA NA huh huh huh huh…woah oh oh oh… even though you know that he does not have to say that…beacause it was still one of those happiest moment of your life…it was one of mine…and they could never take that Alapaap feelin from me.
After a long absence in the blog scene here I am still, drawing my own opinion… where I left off was still almost the same, very thankful for the happy moments and still struggling through growing pains. Symbolically for anyone to sing The World I Know to pour your heart out for your life’s work, David Cook did just that. The question for us is what does the world we know? Is it a happy, care free world, where we go out spend money we easily get? Or maybe you are one of those who play with people’s emotion, not caring if we hurt them, or even some men who change partner’s like monkey’s swinging branch to branch? Are you one of that who strive and work hard and somehow lives his or her career right and just slowly climbing that Personal or Corporate Mt. Olympus? Maybe a hopeless romantic who can’t find love in the right place and right time? Or are you just taking it easy, living life to the fullest of what it can give to you?
The world I know… and you might just know it too… very selfish, yes people this pessimistic bastard is once again disgusted. There are things you just don’t understand in life; there are very confusing feelings, of love of ethical proportions, and even karmic ones. I have fell victim to life’s awesome timing and people’s life long search for salvation. Once again the questions pour, why only now, why it had to happen, why can’t it be…all this… like questions in The New Radical’s song titled someday we’ll know, you still remember that? When you really think about it, all you can say is what a selfish world. A world you taken care of, A world you smile on even though it stabs you in the back, the world of course that hurts you until every possible drop of blood is shed. This world is what the people made it, they made wrong decisions for themselves and others just to make it more confusing also there are people who wouldn’t care for fellowmen just to quench their thirst for power, greed and lust. This world that made all those stupid rules, sects and all other beliefs that should have made life easier and should lead them to salvation, but despite it all, we just got complication and personal civil wars in each and every one of us.
When will we just realize that we live for each other too, this war might be over when it’s too late. And I am just one person screaming out the kind of injustice I am receiving from this world. The world I know is different is different from the world I knew, such simple things came when you are a child but as you grow up you see all the problems and selfishness has been there for a long time haunting each person that has fell victim to this. Losing their family, losing the love of their lives just because the world decided to be selfish with each other, just because we decided to be hard headed about our decisions and didn’t’ think of the people that would matter and could have an effect in our decision. Such sick, sad and cruel… this our world, The world you and I know.
