do walruses even walk? --academic rantings

suppose that you crack my head open right now, all you'd get is chicken noodle soup.. seriously..well, at least you'd have dinner.

ugh..repulsive and horrifying notion.

anyway..i was relieved when the cheerdance was over, not that I regretted singing up for it, in fact I was in it for the glory baby and I got my greedy share (evil laugh here), but it was like out of the frying pan and into the fire, because we were immediately bombarded by an endless stream of exams that just kept coming and coming, it's a huge surprise I'm alive to tell you the story..

no. not really.

I'm already at an all-time high for coming up for exams and not even aware that there was to be an exam in the first place (?). Like for instance in PE, I was so proud that at least I had one answer. We were given pictures of aerobic exercises and I was fairly confident at answering one item, I called it the walrus when it turned out to be the seal walk. I don't know about the authority at naming aerobic exercises, but I think, seals and walruses walk the same way. And correct me if I'm wrong, you don't even call that walking right? Well tough luck at guessing but I had a backup, I called it the pushcart, guess what they call it? the human wheelbarrow! like it's the most obvious thing in the world!

way to go dude.

and there was MIKROS.. this kept us preoccupied for a while, as if we didn't have enough to keep us busy. But I had fun with this one. I'm happy Ma'am Marie made us do it. I'm so proud of us all! XD

and then comes hellweek

The last remaining days of the sem and the torture level must be maintained, if not raised. and you can't mess with that. It's a thing called tradition.

I'll be glad when all this is over but for the meantime I better do myself a favor and start reading up if I plan on passing organic chem.

or not.

jesus of suburbia

I'm the son of rage and love
the Jesus of Suburbia
The bible of none of the above
on a steady diet of
soda pop and Ritalin
No one ever died for my sins in hell
as far as I can tell
at least the ones that I got away with

And there's nothing wrong with me
this is how I'm supposed to be
In a land of make believe
that don't believe in me

Get my television fix
Sitting on my crucifix
the living room in my private womb
while the Moms and Brats are away
To fall in love and fall in debt
to alcohol and cigarettes
and Mary Jane
to keep me insane
doing someone else's cocaine

And there's nothing wrong with me
this is how I'm supposed to be
In a land of make believe
that don't believe in me

At the center of the earth
In the parking lot
Of the 7-11 were I was taught
The motto was just a lie

It says home is where your heart is
but what a shame
cause everyone's heart
doesn't beat the same
It's beating out of time

City of the dead
at the end of another lost highway
Signs misleading to nowhere
City of the damned
Lost children with dirty faces today
No one really seems to care

I read the graffiti
In the bathroom stall
Like the holy scriptures of a shopping mall
And so it seemed to confess

It didn't say much
But it only confirmed that
the center of the earth
Is the end of the world
And I could really care less

City of the dead
At the end of another lost highway
Signs misleading to nowhere
City of the damned
Lost children with dirty faces today
No one really seems to care

I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't care

I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't care

I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't care

I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't
I don't care if you don't care

I don't care

Everyone is so full of shit
Born and raised by hypocrites
Hearts recycled but never saved
From the cradle to the grave
We are the kids of war and peace
From Anaheim to the Middle East
We are the stories and disciples of
The Jesus of suburbia

Land of make believe
And it don't believe in me
Land of make believe
And I don't believe
And I don't care!

I don't care
I don't care
I don't care
I don't care

Dearly beloved are you listening?
I can't remember a word that you were saying
Are we demented or am I disturbed?
The space that's in between insane and insecure

Oh therapy, can you please fill the void?
Am I retarded or am I just overjoyed?

Nobody's perfect and I stand accused
For lack of a better word, and that's my best excuse

To live, and not to breathe
Is to die, in tragedy
To run, to run away
To find, what you believe

And I leave behind
This hurricane of fucking lies
I lost my faith to this
This town that don't exist
So I run, I run away
To the lights of masochists

And I, leave behind
This hurricane of fucking lies
And I, walked this line
A million and one fucking times
But not this time

I don't feel any shame
I won't apologize
When there ain't nowhere you can go
Running away from pain
When you've been victimized
Tales from another broken home

You're leaving
You're leaving
You're leaving
Ah, you're leaving home.

i dunno, i just thought of it and then I wrote it down

i remember watching wizards of waverly place, the episode where Selena Gomez went to the CRazy ten minute sale, and then there was this signature mean girl with her two signature dumb blonde sidekicks (i don't remember if they were even blonde). And then one of the dumb sidekicks suddenly let go of a snappy comeback, and then the other one said "wow! good one!" and then she replied "i dunno, I just thought of it and then I said it!" and she was so proud!LOL

hence the title..because i'm just gonna rant until all you people rot in hell XD

I don't know about dumb blondes, but them being signature characters in teen movies is what makes these movies so much fun!haha I suddenly miss watching american teenage subculture type of movies which they don't make very often nowadays..tsk tsk the 90's was a good era..

since you got me started, now I'm gonna talk about pop culture, a classmate of mine had a report on POP culture and I was surprised at how much I still know from all the rubbish I've picked up over the last few years despite my permanent exile to UPminland. I guess I'm what you call a pop culture slave. I guess we all are and that includes you.

I went to SM this morning with some friends. There was this book that everyone has been dying to read. It was a book released in 2005, but suddenly exploded into an overnight success, maybe due to (i am just assuming) it having its film adaptation. When we got to NBS, we found out that they only sold hardbound copies. It was a bit too expensive for some book that might probably disappoint you. But my friend still bought one (and I'm gonna be the first to borrow..hehe). We saw one friend from school and she bought two. The books were literally flying off the shelves. I even saw some people carrying them around as they strolled through the mall. Everyone was dying to get into the craze.

My example might not be entirely accurate but it's screaming pop culture all over the place! you got to admit it. We are all slaves to pop culture. c'mon, who doesn't love MTV? I admit MTV has influenced me a lot. I can even recall some MTV ads and think of them as happy childhood memories!haha i kid! i kid!

Gosh, I suddenly miss having MTV..

Popular Culture is the culture defined by what is deemed to be "popular" (what a whimsical play of words ;)) and followed by a common multitude. and it's not a bad thing to wear those watermelony outfits with your overly colored skinny jeans, because pop culture is what defines some of us as a generation.

However, it's also great to be unique.although there are only too few of us..haha I am only a sponge to information such as pop culture, I don't necessarily engage in such queer, unsettling behavior..haha Bah! excuses!

anyway, I was supposed to write a shallow, no-brainer article, but I guess this comes naturally..

---gosh, it's so hard pretending to be deep..hehe
