i saw this coming from day one

Friday, March 28th, 2008

sorry mr gorrell, but the Newsbreak article interviewing legal experts on their opinion whether the contents of your blog are libelous or not is in itself not libelous. (erroneous perhaps, but not libelous — wala, ate carla, mabuhay ka!) i think ms fonbuena here did us great service by writing this.

at the outset, i’ve been worried whether gorrell’s blog, dubbed by many as a v.close-to-home version of gossip girl, would eventually lead to the expansion of the libel law to cover cyberspace — considering the “size” of the people involved and allegedly maligned. of course, this is a scary possibility that would probably change the face of internet usage in the country. kudos to tere for thinking about the other forms of expression that might be curtailed in the event of filing a libel case on cyberspace slurs — and winning. talk about setting a precedent. thank goodness she was smart enough to think of the possibilities of unintended precedents. :)

good luck na lang mr gorrell. i hope you get your money back, i sincerely do, but i hope you keep these people who are just doing their jobs out of your blog. k?

kung bakit bumabagal ang araw pag binibilang

Friday, March 28th, 2008

hindi ko rin alam.

siguro, bumibigat — sa kahulugan (kasi mahalaga, dahil binibilang ba ang hindi mahalaga?), sa pag-asa (na sana dumating, sana di na dumating, sana maulit, sana di maulit, sana bumalik, sana wag na — maraming uri pero pare-pareho lang), sa kung anu-anong kaakibat na emosyon (pero kadalasan, luha. pero mas mabigat kung galit.)

so ako, ngayon, kalahating buwan na walang yosi. labing-pitong araw. minsan di ko na naiisip sa loob ng isang araw na matagal-tagal na rin pala yun, at naisip ko ngayon-ngayon lang na ito na ang pinakamatagal kong panahon na kinayang walang nicotine. dalawang tumbling pakanan, tatlo pakaliwa.

ikaw, bakit mo binibilang ang mga araw mo? hmm.

supreme court votes 9-6 to uphold neri’s petition

mahabang kwento kaya quote na lang galing sa dissenting opinion ni chief justice puno:

When there is abuse of power by any of the branches, there is no victor, for a distortion of power works to the detriment of the whole government, which is constitutionally designed to function as an organic whole.


buong dissenting opinion dito.

it’s over

Seen at japan home

Originally uploaded by _shifter

I love Japan Home. seriously. and not only because it sells nifty products at such low prices.

i think i saw this on a CD protector. i guess they wanted to say the product is for everyone, but um something got lost in translation.
