grub + travels + perspectives

Loops & Links

One. “Be awake enough to see where you are at any given time and how that is beautiful and has poetry inside.” Click here to read (and hear) this rare 1995 interview with Jeff Buckley wherein he discusses his philosophies on life and music.

Two. A few days back, someone who attended Comic-Con leaked the trailer for David Ayer's Suicide Squad. Since then, according to a statement by Warner Brothers posted on the film's official Facebook page, they have been doing measures to contain the clip but they failed. So they just released the high quality trailer for the reason they 'cannot continue to allow the film to be represented by the poor quality of the pirated footage stolen from their presentation.'

The debate about Jared Leto's version of Joker is just endless. I know, I know, Mark Hamill is the real Joker and yes, Heath Ledger had the best performance as the villain. But I wouldn't toss the film just because of those facts. I'm actually more excited to see Jay Hernandez, Margot Robbie and Viola Davis! The trailer music was spot on too!

Suicide Squad will be in theaters August 5, 2016.

Three. I finally got to watch Jurassic World over the weekend! I got goosebumps when I heard the Jurassic Park theme again after 18 years. Pure nostalgia. Though I was hoping Chris Pratt would be funny or witty as the main lead, but it turned out to be this grumpy dinosaur-whisperer character. The storyline had a lot of loop holes too. But anyway, one of the things that I cannot forget about the film was how Zara, Bryce Dallas Howard's assistant, died. It was too much and a bit traumatic, actually. Apparently, I was not the only one who asked Why does Zara have to die so horribly in Jurassic World?

Four. This very interesting and informative (but sad) piece about the "lonely deaths" of the Japanese elderly called kodokushi and how Toru Koremura's company, Risk-Benefit, fits in the picture. I haven't read such a well-written article for so long until this.

Five. The Breakfast category of Roads & Kingdoms' website. I hope to do something like this in the future. Check out the June 25th entry!

Six. The Power of 29: An Ode to Being Almost 30. THIS. This couldn't get any more accurate for me. When I was 23, I had no clue where I was going. When I was 25, I still had no clue. Aneth tweeted this question yesterday in which I quickly responded:

Of course, I had ~*~no regrets~*~ about all my previous juvenile choices. Every slump in the road lead to where I am right now, and I know this is where I'm supposed to be. Everything started to change when I hit 26, just after my quarter life crisis. Here I am now, 28 years old and nowhere near where I was 5 years ago.


  1. (Thanks for the mention. Hehe) Ang creepy ng Suicide Squad but I'm excited for it!
