Masons, Elections and UP Fair

Hey I heard you are a wild one? Wanna come with me? I kid. :)

Hello. In a response to the Corporate Closet's post that I quote, Blogging is Dying, unquote, no it ain't. That I may stage gazillions of reasons (or, alibi) to why not, I digress. Blogging for me is partly personal and an attempt to sway other people to believe that life can offer more than just a college course, a sugar-coated lovelife or a job that sucks so much you want to resign but you just can't because you can't. *shudders*

While waiting for the materials to be sent via ftp, I initiated a chat with my officemate. I asked, "Should we vote for those who did premature campaign?" She said, "I will, kasi alam nila ang pinapasok nila."

Her words blew me away. The fact that she is brillant, and has lots of ideas for refute, I was not expecting her answer. She pulled over though with, " But not all."

Syempre, 12 lang kaya ang pwedeng iboto! Hahaha. This is a minor attempt for a joke. I will understand if you refuse to carry on. LOL

Our conversation grew deeper with her cursing one candidate, and imitating him in a sweeny-meeny manner, Gusto ko may pagkain kayo! Like her, I despise dynasties in every sense of it. But some of them are really qualified. Some of them might make it in our lists.

Speaking of dynasties, we traced one candidate's lineage (the only thing that might let him win, and I am very sure that he will win) until I coined in a documentary I watched somewhere. It was about the origin of the wealth of these Tarlac natives.

I told her I forgot the whole story but I guess History is one of the best subjects in their university because she just knew where to pick the conversation. These riches were from a member of the Katipunan who fell in love with a girl named Isidra. The member, was the treasurer. Apparently the funds were passed to her for safekeeping until the Katipunero died. Then Isidra became Prada-wearing red heeled filthy rich. And it went on and on...

She speculated that some of our national heroes were members of the Freemasonry. Like Freemasonry, Illuminati, New World Order. According to my knowledge of these, Masons are very skilled people. They built this organization for themselves and the organization itself has a complex heirarchy. They have powerful resources and formidable connections that make them one indestructible army for a New World. Whatever their aims are, it would not be apparent. Though I still think they are one of the world's worst kept secrets.

And the UP Fair. Yes we ended with that. She invited me and we are going, tomorrow. :)

Good night!

  2. First, blogging as an activity and a platform to publish personal ruminations isn't. Social blogging, however, is.

    Second, like everything in life, there will always be exceptions to the rule. Political dynasties, crass campaign tactics, and sincere platforms included. I try to take the good with the bad.

    Third, I sorely miss the UP Fair. Especially now that Pedicab would be playing. Last time I went was after graduation. That's a solid five years ago.

    Thanks for visiting my blog, too.

    1. If you combine kuya Mugen's comment with your social media post, you would just note how these otger forms have (already) somehow eclipsed blogging. Which could be good or bad.

      I think with the elections, segregation is the key. However, we can't expect that from a still immature voting populace, not to mention blatant cheating and vote buying.

      You should have attended yesterday night. Though there's still tonight with good bands on the tow: talk about Kjwan and other Marasigan connections. Pedicab would be there, too!

      Thanks for your insightful comments. I've always read you before until these days of buzz came. Congrats din pala for passing (forgot that in my comment)

  3. Having read this I thought it was extremely enlightening.

    I appreciate you finding the time and effort to put this short article together.

    I once again find myself personally spending a significant amount of time both reading and
    commenting. But so what, it was still worthwhile!

    1. Like the ebb and flow of tides, bloggers come and go. Some write once in a while, finding their nook the way they left them.

      Only when you decide to close your blog, and move to another online medium thus your presence take a different form. Good or bad, it doesn't matter. Expression is. True writers stay because they see their craft as an artform, while poseurs merely follow a trend.

    2. You are right, kuya Joms. It all starts with the passion to write and share, because those are the essentials to blogging. On my case, somehow there is passion but the stigma doesn't hang around the place much. Maybe stress takes away my vigor. Enter social media where copyreading and paragraphs are taken over by one-liners and single click publish buttons. Everything seems to have shortened, including the thoughts but there could arise wit and effectiveness. To me, expression is the key. You don't need to think if it is socially relevant or just plain personal. You just have to be good at how to make it reach other people. Perhaps it all goes back to passion. If you really love what you do, no matter where you write, it would always satisfy you.

  4. The only candidate I'd probably vote would be Gordon. Parang the White Order Lotus lang sa Avatar yung Masons? hahaha

    Blogging definitely is not dead. There's a lot of active bloggers out there, it's just a matter of finding good ones, like this blog. :)

    1. Gordon's ads are very effective. But he is against land ownership. Haha. (This is from a pro-CARP)

      hey, thanks for saying that. I'll take that as a compliment to boost me from my boring weekday life. I'm glad you found something here that made you feel good. :)
