When I say "NRN"

It's only an abbreviation meaning "no reply/response needed".

So, what do I mean when I say, "NRN"? It simply means that if you're thinking about replying to my message or comment because you think or feel that I may feel bad about you not responding, then you don't have to worry. We're cool ;')
But if you really feel compelled, you're very welcome. We are cool ;')

Sometimes, however, I would very much like to "hear" a response from you. Mostly, I want people to think and analyze, I want them to see what's possible, I want them to be open minded, all without losing ethics and morality, and your response will let me see what you thought about what I said. Or if you thought about it at all.

Thank you ;')

I am a Jedi

Yesterday, on my 29th birth anniversary, I took my oath in the Temple of the Jedi Order to become a real Jedi*.

This is no joke. This is not a mere fanboy or role-playing activity. This is me taking my path towards my destiny.

I am now a Jedi Padawan, a Jedi Apprentice. An apprentice of the Force.+
[+For 6 March 2009]

*In the Order of the Jedi (Canada) though, I became a member on February 14th, to graduate on the same day in 2010. However, unlike in TOTJO, I as yet have taken no oath nor performed a ritual for membership, training or apprenticeship.

Farewell, FrancisM

Michelangelo di Lodovico Buonarroti was born on this day in 1475. One of the greatest artists who ever lived. It's also my birth day, but a full celebration seems inappropriate (though I don't really celebrate it).
This morning I woke up with Wowowee on TV, the host Willie Revillame asking everyone for a momentary silence, and a sad news:

Francis Durango Magalona has passed away.

My niece Gelan was here and she pushed the volume of the TV up several times, complaining there was no sound. That was funny. But thinking about it now, I realize that Francis M's creations will resonate through our universe (no, really), I imagine, for countless millennia. The silence will not be absolute, but an emptiness will be felt.

Man, you know in our high school band, we enjoyed jamming with your songs the most.

Pareng FrancisM, you are now one with the Force ;)

Thank you for all of your gifts.
