levity: (humans need fantasy to be human)
Can you imagine the Premier League without Dider Drogba? I can't.

Took 204 removals, passed 204 removals, end of. The parents bought us drive-through Starbucks to celebrate, which: DRIVE-THROUGH STARBUCKS. MOST WONDERFUL THING EVER CREATED. Sorry walang Starbucks sa bundok namin. For the first decade-and-a-bit of my life the most convenient Starbucks was in Luisita in Tarlac, two-plus hours away from home, so forgive if sometimes the presence of a Starbucks seems to me to be the most amazing thing.

Watched Hogfather for the first time, completely out of season. It was on TV. If I were to pick a Discworld book to adapt to film, it wouldn't be Hogfather, simply because I'd have no idea where, and how, to start. They managed to pull off DEATH and Susan and- albeit to a lesser extent- Jonathan Teatime (it's pronouced Te-ah-tim-eh), which are the important parts, and Hex, which is not so much but is a very amusing bonus. At the end of the humans need fantasy to be human, to be the place where the falling angel mettes the rising ape exchange, Susan says, "But people have got to believe in those, or otherwise what's the point?" and instead of saying MY POINT EXACTLY DEATH skips ahead to YOU NEED TO BELIEVE IN THINGS THAT AREN'T TRUE. OTHERWISE, HOW CAN THEY BECOME? and it should not have worked, it should have been too heavy-handed to work, especially in film, but it did, so I am happy.

Also also how come no one ever told me that The King is Dead is a completely brilliant album, the perfect Decemberist mix of folk rock and guitar-based rock n' roll and narrative songs.

Fuck it, Guaje. Abi. Sometimes I hate football so much.
