Moving Forward & Leaving Behind

How long does it take, a minute, a week, a life time? I know the patience is everything but what if people can't really change? Deep down, what we all are capable of doing is distracting everyone than what is going on underneath.

Watching and waiting, telling time, telling lies, half true, whole true and nothing but truth. But does it really matter now? At least nothing I can concern. It's the feeling like, life just happening...  To you. As if you are not apart of what's going on. Constantly dreaming of reality for ourselves, but what it seems like reality is more than a dream than anything. You watch yourself living, but it's like you're helpless. You can't do anything to change it.

Even knowing you are not alone, this feeling, is no consolation at all. Fact remains, it's just no good keep walking through life. But what can I do? Do I actually have that choice? For a person who is fighting on a daily basis, can I just choose to be? The idea of even have to keep up with new adaptation and all. I thought I would be alright. But am I?

As a child, I always thinks that riding at the back of a car is an emotionally driven experience. My father and I never really got along when I was younger. When he use to pick me up from somewhere and take me home, I always feel that he is taking me away from the places I usually rather be. It was as if I was force to leave something behind. A part of myself, maybe. I would spend the entire car ride home, turning around in the back seat, watching my happiness disappear into the distance.

It's all I could do from keep jumping out of the car, I could be where I've been, but at least I could turn my back to where I was headed. It was like that as long as I could remember. Until one day, my father finally said something about it. He said :
Son, moving forward isn't always leaving something behind. 
It's probably the most profound thing he has ever said. Only it took me this long to finally get it. It is the same "then" as it is "today". I can't turn around any more. And for the first time in my life, I finally feel I am looking at the right direction.

Four Big Names In Talks To Helm 'Wicked' Adaptation

It looks like the adaptation a decade in the making is finally picking up some steam.

BroadwayWorld is reporting that producer Marc Platt, composer Stephen Schwartz, and writer Winnie Holzman have began meeting with potential directors for the upcoming adaptation of "Wicked."

A musical that opened on Broadway in 2003, "Wicked" is the story of two girls that meet in the land of Oz; One, born with emerald-green skin, is smart, fiery and misunderstood, and the other is beautiful, ambitious and very popular.

It tells the story of the creation of the Wicked Witch of the West, and Glinda the Good.

The list of potential directors is a who's who of Hollywood right now: J.J. Abrams (upcoming "Star Wars Episode VII"), James Mangold ("The Wolverine"), Rob Marshall ("Chicago"), and Ryan Murphy ("Glee").

While I see the film going to either Marshall or Murphy for obvious reasons I would really like to see Mangold step up to the plate.

He did, after all, make "Walk the Line" so he has some history with music, and he is an excellent story teller, and can dig deep into actors for depth and emotion.

Holding On & Letting Go

Whenever people says Rock Music, the thing usually pops into their mind is just noises. But does it really means that? I've devoted my life to rock music. It's a really big part of me in many levels. In these recent few weeks having my time off, I realize that the more I wanted to write a hit, the more I drifted away from my roots. I remember I tweeted this years ago.
Music isn't just some melody I wanna write about for people to love. It's just a part of me I wanna express and share it with the world. That is what music is to me. 
But now, where am I standing? Everything seems out of reach to me. Life is kind to me and I will be damn if I think other wise. But why the more I am having right now, I feel like the more I am loosing it. The only person I really wished to hold right now and tells me it's gonna be ok is on the other side of the world. And when I pick up the phone to text, all I could key in was, "I miss you" and a quick reply "Silly boy, I miss you too. XOXO"  And I just left it where it was.

I have been avoiding to write for the past few days. Just keeping myself busy on my work. But the more I wanna keep myself running away from reality, the more everything seems to be building inside. For one little reason, I won't be going under the knife any more. Somewhat with the reason that I wasn't fit enough to go under anesthetic.

The more I am telling myself I am ok, the more I don't really believe myself. Is anybody out there? Is anybody listenin'? Does anybody really know it's the end of the beginning? The cry a rush a one breath, Is all we waiting for? Sometimes I want my taking, but changes everyone before. Sometimes we're holding angels and we never even know. Don't know if we'll make it, but we know i just can't let it show. Some prayers finds answers, some prayers just don't.

What is there left for me to pick it up? I have even tried unconventional drugs( Ain't those I was doing ). It does seems working well for now. Cytoxin is like a miracle for me. But the question is just how long will it be this time. All I am left is just time. Maybe it just is.

Singapore Airlines Unveils Grand New Cabin Designs, Launches 777-300ER

The race for the best international premium cabins heated up yesterday when Singapore Airlines unveiled a new interior design in their upcoming Boeing 777-300 ER fleet. In a small event at the Boeing delivery facility outside of Seattle, the airline previewed the next phase of their cabin experience set to reach customers later this year.

Though the airline has widely been heralded as one of the best international carriers, it continues to innovate in this long range Boeing aircraft only five years after launching a new product on the A380. Asked about the short development cycle, James Boyd, VP of PR Americas said “We never want to rest our laurels,” and pointed to a tradition of innovation at the company.

While that evolution has resulted in aesthetic changes and inflight entertainment upgrades throughout the entire aircraft, the upgrades are most apparent in the first and business class cabins.

Seats have been redesigned to accommodate the ergonomics and needs of today’s business traveler with power, USB, lights and seat controls all at arm’s reach. There’s now space to stow a tablet computer and noise-cancelling headsets, and the seats have been updated to recline in a wider variety of positions.

At large, these are all updates to an existing premium product to make it even better. First class seats, for example, are still enormously wide at 35” across. Now, however, they also have audio jacks on both sides of the bench to accommodate two passengers.

Updates to the inflight entertainment pump Singapore’s Krisworld platform out through a Panasonic eX3 system. While most passengers won’t recognize the updates compared to the other Singapore aircraft, they will notice the size of the screens. First class screens are now 24” instead of 23”, business goes up to 18” from 15.4” and economy even upgrades from 10.6 to 11.1 inches. Each seat has USB and iPhone connections, and the front two cabins have HDMI inputs. There is also a touchscreen handset in each seat that acts as a handheld menu for the inflight entertainment, something particularly handy in the front cabins where it’s more difficult to reach the televisions.

The updates seem ready to keep Singapore Airlines on top of the heap of premium international carriers. As to when North Americans will see the service, the answer is still unclear. The airline’s 777-300ER will initially operate in late 2013 between Singapore and London, with additional planned routes across the eastern hemisphere. San Francisco and Houston both are serviced by Singapore Airlines on a 777-300, though the airline’s plans to use the new equipment on those routes has not been established.

Breathing Air

Have you ever feel like you were under the water and you couldn't rise above to catch a mouthful of air? Somehow, that is how I am feeling right now. Sometimes, things ought to be seen as something beautiful. But when you peel it off a layer by layer. Reality sometimes is just harsh and cold.

So many things to let go right now, so many part of me wanting to hold on. All the chains around were just pulling you in deeper. The more you wanted to stay on, the more you knew it was just steps away being a wreak.

It's been 8 days since you left me there. I understand what you are going through, I understand that this is part of the deal. But nothing can take away the loneliness that is growing. I know it isn't fair to say I am cause I know, it will be 100 times worst for you than for me.

I know that nothing I can compares to you. Nothing will. But sometimes, I feel am I just enough for you? I am tired too. I am human too. I am not tired that I love you. But I am just tired of all the other factors that makes me feel how I am feeling right now.

I wanted to say it is okay. I really do. But just.. I needed air myself. I wanted to be just enough for you. But will I ever be? I am your safe person, I am yours as you are mine. But why does all this emotions still stirs?

To Bali With Love?

Well, everything seems to be at a boiling point. I needed this break and honestly, Bali did me good. There are so many things going on right now and I just didn't know how to deal with it somehow. I am lost at words. A tight slap from reality just didn't really help.

Listening to Siobhan Magnus's cover of Nothing Compares To You just put me at peace somehow. I just hang up on the phone with Andrew. Somewhat, I miss that cutie little boy very much. He is such a beautiful light. But he reminds me a lot with what being a normal human can be. All the emotions that is going on right now, it is just part of being alive.

Somehow, I wouldn't be able to go back to the States this coming few weeks. But anyhow, everything happen for a reason right? I know at this moment, I needed to be here. To be just where you needed. I thought I would feel miserable but actually, it ain't that bad. Maybe it's just the vibe I am having right now. Listening to music really does help.
She’s talking to angels, counting the stars
Making a wish on a passing car
She’s dancing with strangers, falling apart
Waiting for Superman to pick her up
In his arms, In his arms
Waiting for Superman
Well, I guess music is just really a part of me. This is just a song that really helps me a lot right now. And I guess that is all that matters. The lyrics of this song were inspired by a real life person. She indeed reminds me of someone I love very much.

Anyway, here are some shots I've taken in Bali. Will continue writing soon. Good night y'all.

Glee Season 5, Episode 1 Sneak Peek

Hey Gleeks! It's been awhile, and oh I have missed you all!! 

Season 5 of Glee is fast approaching us, and I personally have a feeling this is going to be the best season of Glee yet! Us Gleeks have been on an emotional roller-coaster ride for the past few months, but if Glee has taught us anything, it's that channeling sadness through song can make us all stronger people.

We've got your first look at photos from the Season 5 premiere, "Love, Love, Love". It’s very exciting to see the cast of Glee back doing their thing with smiles on their faces too!

Glee season 5 premieres Thursday, September 26th at 9/8c on Fox. The original premiere date was pushed back 1 week after the passing of Cory Monteith set production back. We’ve also learned recently that the show is currently filming that Cory Monteith tribute episode and that there will be a hiatus for an undetermined amount of time once shooting has wrapped.

Are you excited for the Beatles centric episode of Glee premiering in just a few weeks?

What's your take on these carnival-themed photos from the inaugural Season 5 episode? Find out their context on the season premiere of Glee Thursday, September 26 at 9.00 et/pt on Global TV.

Wreaking Ball

Despite all the critics, I really find this music video a genius. Clear statement from Miley is she is shedding her disney image and showing what an artist she has really grown into. Bravo to her and Terry Richardson. The whole concept of this video is really intense. The metaphor of being vulnerable, and what love is all about. The words were so strong and it is a really good song. Isn't that what the world wants? Good music? Apparently not so much to many. Great feat Miley! Keep all the great work coming. Can't wait to hear more. 

And on a side note, I guess part of me is just feeling this way. 

We clawed, we chained, our hearts in vain
We jumped, never asking why
We kissed, I fell under your spell
A love no one could deny

Don't you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you
I can't live a lie, running for my life
I will always want you

I put you high up in the sky
And now, you're not coming down
It slowly turned, you let me burn
And now, we're ashes on the ground
Don't you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you

I can't live a lie, running for my life
I will always want you

I never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in
And instead of using force
I guess I should've let you in
I never meant to start a war
I just wanted you to let me in
I guess I should've let you in

Don't you ever say I just walked away
I will always want you

I came in like a wrecking ball
I never hit so hard in love
All I wanted was to break your walls
All you ever did was break me
I came in like a wrecking ball
Yeah, I just closed my eyes and swung
Left me crouching in a blaze and fall
All you ever did was break me
Yeah, you wreck me
