LSS: Collar Full (Panic! at the Disco)

Album Cover. image: alterthepress.com
If I were to choose a stand-out track from Panic! At The Disco’s latest album Too Weird to Live, Too Rare to Die, it would be Collar Full.

Why? Because the song is just too difficult to put down. I just have to hit the replay button over and over again.

The latest song that got stuck in my head from the band was Ready to Go (Get Me Out of my Mind) from their previous Vices & Virtues album. After my first listen to the song it already made its way to my LSS-worthy tracks list that I even used the track as a background song in one of our school projects (Oh how I miss those days!). It has been 2 years since the album’s release and now I guess it’s about time I have another favorite track from their latest offering.

Collar Full is an upbeat track with the same dancey vibe like Ready to Go. The number contains a flow of bouncy synths enticing listeners to bob their heads and tap their feet nonstop. It is also groovy, a feel-good song indeed. Not just that. The song talks about taking chances, especially when it comes to love. Carpe Diem in love!  Or simply put, you have a collar full of opportunities to show that ‘someone’ you love them.

“Show me your love before the world catches up.”

“Cause there’s always time for second guesses I don’t wanna know. If you’re gonna be the death of me, that’s how I wanna go.”

Why YOU should apply for a Mercury Drug Suki card NOW!

I am not a fan of discount cards, BEFORE. I find these things space eaters in my wallet (where eventually there is a lot of free space for now). Whenever the cashier asks me for any discount card I would just say I don’t have any and I have no plan of owning one yet. And when the middle-aged cashier insists I apply for one because the queue is not long and literally she has all the time in the world to answer my questions and whatnot the skeptic in me kindly declines the offer and pays mypurchase.
In retrospect, I believe I applied for an SM advantage card years ago and forgot to replace the temporary card given to me in exchange for the original one. And that’s it. That’s how far my fancying for discount cards will take me.
But now a change of heart happened. I now love discount cards! And I’m planning to apply and collect as many cards as I could possibly own.
Why? Because times are difficult these days. The prices of commodities have skyrocketed plus the taxes and other (economics) st…

LSS: Feelings (Up Dharma Down)

I have so many emo times, these are moments of solitude and alone time. Whenever I feel the longing to be alone and lonely I listen to songs that would exude the kind of emotion I want at that particular moment (specifically loneliness and exclusion). Talking about emotional songs, I stumbled upon one by Up Dharma Down. After listening to their latest album “Capacities” I was caught up by one of the songs from the album. Feelings is by far the most creative and emotional English song I’ve heard from UDD. I mean Oo, Tadhana and Indak are my favorite Filipino UDD songs but a song written in English which elicits the same emotions brought by the previous tracks is something, right? The song is well-crafted, with lyrics so poetically poignant you’ll end up pressing the REPEAT button (which I did for so many times).


If the lyrics are already good enough, wait until you’re captivated by Armi’s soothing voice. Her voice has that commanding presence which you can listen to all day for the rest…

The ball pen ANALOGY

Remember your favorite ball pen back in your high school days? Be it panda, uni, hbw, the high-priced pilot or even the scented ones; we were once attached to these writing materials. 
There were times when the unexpected happens - your two-day old pilot ball pen fell from your arm chair and when you tested it your penmanship was already broken. It's devastating to say the least; 2 days seemed too short. Then, you told yourself to move on, find another ball pen that is cheaper but will last you a quarter or so. You bought a new hbw pen, its smooth feel on any paper sends chills to your bones. The feeling is exhilarating. A new found intimacy gives you life. After 3 weeks of being useful with its ink already an inch from the ball point you dropped it after taking an exam and eventually lost it. It's heart-wrenching, knowing that you can use the remaining ink all to yourself, without the fear of dropping it because you have used most of its potential. The ink is darker and your p…
