Analog Thoughts on a Digital Age

Just Chillin'



Well, it has been a while since I moved out of Manila and settled permanently in San Fernando. Things have been very slow recently. I keep myself busy by cleaning the house and watching older movies. I really don't know what to do with the hundreds of DVDs I have in my room. I might be able to sell some of them that still kind of have value, like the rare ones. Bu mostly I want to keep them just for posterity's sake, so that my kid will one day find out that daddy actually plunked cash for "Just Married".

Anyways, I have an idea I'm kind of playing around with in my head. I'm thinking of shifting my focus from movies to travel. I don't know if you guys would like to read about me going to the market, or about my latest Cebu beach trip, I guess it's all about what I want to write about. You see, I love movies, but there was a time in my life when movies were all I really cared about. Now things have changed. When you're 30 and you still talk about movies rabidly like a zit-faced fanboy, it kind of makes you stop and think.

Still, writing is in my blood. It is the one talent I know I am good at, that I get a lot of praise for, and I will not put it on the wayside just because I don't want to watch Hancock.

What do you guys think? Should I write about other stuff, or should I stick to movies and music?

I can totally relate. If only I have time now, I'd keep a personal blog (with movies of course) and a photography blog. Di na ata mangyayari un :)

Write whatever excites you. Doesn't have to be movies all the time.
