Thinking Brokeback

I bought a Brokeback Mountain DVD in Marikina Riverbanks. The musical score and the cinematography were great, but Heath Ledger's mumbling wasn't. The PC at home couldn't handle the adult content—it quit playing when the two cowboys got it on the second time.

Why didn't they use the sheep? It's a good thing I didn't make the movie, or there would've been a scene like this instead:
Ennis Del Mar: Do me a favor, Jack.
Jack Twist: What?
Ennis Del Mar: [Mumbles and unzips his pants.]
Jack Twist: Alright!
Ennis Del Mar: Hold this damned sheep for me, will you?

Seriously though, Brokeback Mountain is beautiful. That two-shirts-on-one-hanger thing at the end kills.

Day Out

Two things I didn't do in yesterday's National Women's Month kickoff at the Amoranto Sports Complex:
  • Have a photo taken with Regine Tolentino from the GMA 7 morning show Unang Hirit. What an ass!
  • Get an autograph from Tessa Prieto-Valdez. As usual, she wore an outfit that was all feathers and glitter. She also said that if women want larger boobs they should breastfeed. And if that fails, they should pay Dr. Vicki Belo a visit.
Five things I did:
  • Take half the afternoon off.
  • Attend Ash Wednesday mass. But it was so hot yesterday my perspiration erased the ashes within an hour.
  • Drink...water, almost two liters.
  • Hunt bargains at a tiangge. I bought two pairs of shorts, one for PHP65 and the other for PHP35.
  • Take ├╝beraliw cellphone videos of two elderly ladies dancing to the music of the MMDA Band. I will post them here as soon as I figure out how.
