How to be a Culture Vulture

Gays are somehow known to have a little bit more culture in their system than the average Joe/Juan. Well if you think this is true in your case, raise your hand! If not, well, it’s not the end of the world. The Filipinas Heritage Library is running a series of Filipino Art Appreciation lectures and discussions… if you’re interested, read on.

    sounds nice, wala akong budget and it is geographically improbable na maka-attend ako…

    anyway, I’ve linked you to my blog, and my first few post are based on topics you’ve posted here, I hope you don’t mind.

    juice ko! ang dami namang ek-ek na wala this wala that! haller? mag-organize kaya kayo ng sarili niyong event hindi puro kayo ek-ek. o kaya i-suggest niyo sa organizer next time! maliwanag naman na yan ay invitation for an event hindi suggestion box.

    lech! maka-alis na nga. maghahanap pa ako ng taong gagawin akong kabit! hehehehe!

    ^ Haha! Ang init ng ulo ah!

    Okay yang creative writing workshop na ‘yan. May bayad yan so tawagan ninyo na lang yung Filipinas Heritge Library kung magkano. Naiintidihan ko si Anton Maton, sana wala na masyadong “gagong tanong” sa susunod na mga comments. Hehe.

    Bonus: cute yang si Sarge Lacuesta. Medyo tumaba na siya pero okay yan. Magaling na writer, matalino, maganda ang set ng ngipin, articulate… Haha. Weird ng description ko. Anyway, enroll na kayo sa course niya.

    relax guys

    i do appreciate this post since isa akong frustrated writer nitong mga nakaraang taon. i also love movies (especially local and international indie flicks).

    im sad though because my schedule is fixed until next month. *sigh

    hoping for more posts like this, for the benefit of artistic and open-minded bi’s and gays.

    Migs, I beg to disagree that ‘Gays are somehow known to have a little bit more culture in their system than the average Joe/Juan’. If this were true, then the gays would be less discriminated. Unfortunately, majority of the gay population walang interest sa culture. They are more on the flesh, visuals of the flesh, and stories of the flesh. We can see in the above comments, visuals ang gusto- painting, photography, sculpture, and movies. I just don’t want to ask what will be the subject because it will only lead to one thing- male flesh. Now how can the gay community earn the civil society’s respect. purr…purr…

    hellar again, 1 had a gud nyt sleep, actually the visuals are like silent poetry, there are things which cannot be express by words but you can experience and feel by the mere visuals, like look at classic pieta of michael angel, the serenity of a young mother over the death of here most beloved son, or the works of malang, the interaction between colors and forms to relay a message, the various dances, and not to forget the fashion designers and their creations, now that is culture (not necessarily the writen words… and WORLD PEACE!)
