The Dark Knight Tragedy


For several days, I have been following reports about the Colorado shooting and I can't help but think what kind of sick person would plan and end lives of people he doesn't even know. The shooting that happened in the screening of the move The Dark Knight, the last of the trilogy of the Batman, is really disturbing, specially that the suspect is claiming that he is the Joker, a villain character in Batman, which was played by late Heath Ledger in Batman Returns.

This tragedy would make you think if violent movies should be ban forever and instead we'll just make happy movies like fairy tales, wholesome cartoons, and love stories movies, but of course, that would be preposterous. Movies are an art form and must be celebrated. With movies, our imagination is endless. How many inventions were inspired by movies that we are enjoying now? Movies are the outlet of our ideas and feelings. It is sad that it is used to cause harm and agony to others. If we only know the boundary of movies and reality, this shooting and any other killings and robberies inspired by movies would never happen.

To the victims of Colorado massacre and to their families and friends, my condolences.

RIP, Dolphy, the King of Comedy

Dolphy, King of Comedy
 
When I was young, the nights would not be complete without watching John and Marsha, and later on, Home Along Da Riles. Dolphy had been a part of my childhood, watching every night his TV shows and sometimes his movies on the theater. His comedy shows were the binding agent that kept my family together after supper. His movies were the treats that my mother would give me, and later my children's treat from mine. The King of Comedy had brought laughter to every Filipinos and had remained a relief to every sad moments. 

Sadly, yet partly happy, Dolphy has now joined the Creator. After battling complicated health problems for months, he is now home. Thank you, Mang Dolphy for laughter and happy memories you gave to every one who watched you on TV and theater. Rest in peace.

When the Blogger's Mind Blacked Out

The unhelpful heritage vanishes.

It's been months since my last post. I wasn't busy but I just can't get myself write something to blog about. There were so many events and issues that had happened which I thought of writing about, however every time I lay my fingers on the keyboard, they can't seem to type my thoughts. Sometimes I wish that there will be an application that would translate our thoughts to written words so that I would not need to type nor put my thoughts into words.

I'm writing this hoping that through my rambling, my fingers would cooperate and my mind would put its precious(?) thoughts into writing. Ever heard of a phrase "I know it, it's on the tip of my tongue" which actually means, the brain cell that holds that information just bursts and is now dead.
