The Many Ways I've Been Dumped

In the Philippines, they can both be named Marnie or Charlie.

A couple of weeks ago, Girls pretty much cemented its place in my personal favorite tv shows of all time with Charlie's break up scene with Marnie. It's because almost the same thing happened to me, obviously.

Two weeks later (this afternoon, of course), while walking home, I'm recounting the many times I've been dumped. Sure, it's a really mean thing to do to myself, but it's a 10-ish minute walk and I'm sort of seen everything the road home.

Because I'm a decent enough guy, I'm not going to tell any of them here. Some of the are sort of explicit, some are stupid, and all brings back some emotions I don't want to revisit.

"Hey, Charles. What's the point of this post, then?" I just wanted to create an excuse to declare to the world how much I like the show.

"Fair enough."

I just figured out who Hanna's mother looks like.
Now, tell me she doesn't look like a young Seymour Cassel.
No? Phillip Seymour-Hoffman?

I Shaved My Head


Here are a few thoughts surrounding my baldness:

he likes cardigans too.

  • It's really humid in the Philippines right now.
  • I would like to thank God for giving me a round head. It makes me confident enough to shave all the hair.
  • Charlie from GIRLS is my favorite character from that show. I can relate to him a lot.
  • The Lakers lost their series with the OKC Thunder, which bums me out. I'm sure I'll be depressed for about two weeks until the finals.
  • This cures dandruff, right?
  • Is that a mole on my forehead?
  • I have the biggest eye bags on the face of Facebook.
  • This is my third blog post in two days. Somehow, that feels really weird.

When You See Me Like This, This is Probably What I'm Thinking

Charles: So, how are you?
Charles: I'm great. Thanks for asking.
Charles: Are you, really?
Charles: Thankful for asking? Sure. It's something that's ofte--
Charles: I mean, are you really okay or are you just saying that?
Charles: Sure, of course.
Charles: What.
Charles: So how are things?
Charles: Not very g-- wait, I asked that first! And you never gave me a decent answer. WTF.
Charles: Well, you see, the most decent to the question "how are you?" is to say that you are fine. But, of course, nobody really is fine. I'm just saving you from all the misery that is the real answer to "how are you?"
Charles: Well, guy, you ARE talking to yourself. So, you are technically lying to yourself if you save yourself from all the misery that is the real answer to said question.
Charles: Fine. I am really bummed that the Lakers are losing.
Charles: Really? The Lakers? That's what has been eating you up?
Charles: Well, not entirely.
Charles: Go on.
Charles: There's this girl...
Charles: OKAY. Let me cut you off and tell you I don't wanna hear about it.
Charles: Well, FUCK you, guy. You asked first.
Charles: Charles, we both know how you really are with these things. You're always clueless about what's happening and you end up hurting yourself. And even when you actually know what's going on, you still hurt yourself. You're like an emotional jackass.
Charles: I am, aren't I?
Charles: Jackass. You're better than this.
Charles: Oh, am I? Please, oh, please tell me how and why.
Charles: You just are. Stop it.
Charles: YOU'RE a jackass.
Charles: Fine, jackass.
Charles: Also, stop eating crap from the street. Stop drinking coke.
Charles: Already did that.
Charles: Stop being so vain, looking at your Facebook profile all the time. Stop thinking the Lakers still have a chance. AND STOP THINKING YOU HAVE A CHANCE WITH THIS GIRL.
Charles: Well...
Charles: Okay. Um, see, ahh, well, it's hard not to think about these things when you're feeling them. You know?
Charles: Screw your feelings.
Charles: I might even think that I'm in L--
Charles: Don't say it.
Charles: vvvvbbttthh.
Charles: Just get yourself busy with other things. Finish your fucken EP. Go make some art. Watch more TV. I don't care. Make your mind think about other things. Soon, you'll remember that you've forgotten about things.
Charles: Right now, I'm just wondering when this will end.
Charles: Like I said, you'll just soon remember that you've forgotten about things.
Charles: No, I mean, when are you gonna stop talking.
Charles: ...
Charles: ...
Charles: ...
Charles: ...
Charles: Shut up.
Charles: I hope the Lakers win tonight.
Charles: Me too. I don't know if my heart can take it anymore.

Complaining About Complaining and About Other Stuff

In case anybody was wondering, I'm fine. However, I have really been having problems articulating myself and that's why I haven't been posting much on this blog in the past couple of years. Of course, I'm not that busy. I just have been watching a lot of television, ~trying~ to write songs, and thinking about what to say and how to say it. It's another way of saying "I haven't been doing jack shit." It's awful.

With that said, I have been inspired by Twitter to air out complaints that I have been keeping for the last couple of weeks. That's right, I said it. I think Twitter is full of complaining. Whiny and irritating. It's awful.

Occupy Twitter Street

Anyway, here are my complaints. Bullet time! (I'm listening to Saosin at the moment, by the way)
  • These people on Twitter whining about Lady Gaga protesters. What have they actually done aside from writing less than 140 characters about it? Exactly. Obviously, these people (the people protesting Lady Gaga) don't care for much outside their own "righteousness" bubble. How they hell will they understand what you think of them? You're on the internet, they're outside doing something. Guess who's gotten more out of life. Awful. Just awful.
  • Community fans who's never seen Community on time. Are these people really asking why it's on the brink of cancellation? Sure, Community's a really great show and I understand why you're all upset why it's not getting the attention it truly deserves. But, you haven't seen it on TV have you? Have you seen it on it's actual Thursday night time slot? The bottom line is that TV is still business and ratings are everything. If the folks from the US don't bring the goods and watch it on time, we're all screwed. It's awful.
  • Dan Harmon getting kicked out of Community. What's the deal with that? The cast didn't even fight for him. Look at them rolling over and submitting to the network. Maybe they already fought for him and got nowhere. At the end of the day, It's all money and business. So awful.
  • Why on Earth did Anthony Green leave Saosin? They were so great with him.
  • The Lakers defense. Westbrook and Durant combined for 68 points, guys. I thought you knew how to guard these children? You are big, burly men. Be big and burly, dammit.
  • I'm not gonna mention it directly but it rhymes with blurl blime blating. What do I have to do? I'm on my knees here. 
  • EDSA traffic. Fuck you to hell.
Look, everyone. Complaining is really easy. If you care enough about it, do something. Good thing I really only care about item number 6.
