Taken at These Spaces, a poetry reading hosted by White Wall Poetry for Fringe Manila at Sev's Cafe. There's a video of me reading my poem Primitive (or Love in the Time of Mobile Internet and Grindr). Still uncomfortable watching myself on video but this is one of my better performances, if I may say so, where I actually look like I am almost enjoying myself.

"They are just words" -- a blog entry and spoken word piece I wrote specifically for Niccolo Cosme's upcoming  collaborative art exhibit "Revelations" in celebration of International Day Against Homophobia and Transphobia.

It won't play on YouTube (banned in the Philippines) but it will play on Google Plus (so I got to watch it there).

Awesome work, as always! Saying "break a leg" is so scary when wishing you luck. :D

New poem draft. Just wrote it as I woke up after two parties last night. I really have to learn how to end my poems properly, even on the first draft. I tend to fizzle away near the end. Will work on this more soon.

"What Art Reveals" -- a poem draft that just came to me. I will let it settle first and let it stand a bit on its two legs before I revise. I'll come back to it again to rework it. But for now, here's the draft.

"Leaving the Umbra" ~ a #poem #poetry draft I wrote to mark my 36th year in this world. I made it. I'm still here. And I'm so thankful to all the wonderful and magical people in my life who have just allowed me to be me. Thank you.

A #poem  I wrote called "What you don't know" got published in the Manila Bulletin's Sunday magazine Panorama. It came at the best time for me, watching all these amazing shows at   #FringeMNL  and wondering if I would just be the guy watching other people's works and reviewing it. I forgotten that I aspire to create as well. Then this comes out and it reminded me that I do. I write #poetry  and it's a major part of me and who I am. 

It's good to be reminded, sometimes, of who you are and what you can do and not get sucked in to just standing in the corner and watching everyone else do amazing things.

I was shocked because I was expecting to hate X-Men: Days of Future Past but I rather enjoyed myself. Quite a lot! Here's my review of the film!

I really, really love The Amazing Spider-Man 2. Marc Webb does a tremendous job and Andrew Garfield and Emma Stone are everything. They are love. Dane DeHaan is awesome too. Read my review at the link:

In preparation for the release of an upcoming collection of poetry I'm putting out this year, here's a video by Frank Aldana of me reading one of my poems which will be in the upcoming collection: Clubbing vs the "real" world (and the "real" world is winning) which I performed at Viva Manila's Pasyal Sunday in Intramuros last March 16.
