politico-cultural insight

this is true. whenever we wonder about apathy in some members of society especially the low-income class with regards to cultural and political phenomena, this is possibly one of the factors that explain it:

"There’s a point at which somebody is so far removed from the formal system that he has no interest in changing it."

Article: 'Rurouni Kenshin' Ends Explosively - And Romantically

rurouni kenshin

when people listen to me speaking in english, they often surmise that i must be a reader. the simple assumption would exasperate me sometimes, particularly because i actually read a lot less books and writings than the self-professed bookworm and also because a lot of what i read i read because i have to, not because i want to.

but today, sitting on my bed thinking of the movie rurouni kenshin: the legend ends, i realize that people were right - i am a reader, but not, i think, in the sense in which they think. i am a true reader in that i have a reader's mindset - especially that mental receptiveness for allowing an author or creator to establish a world or a storyline and having it fully come alive in one's imagination. to that kind of thing, i could give myself whole-heartedly.

the night before, i had watched rurouni kenshin 3 again with mai. i was impulsive about watching it - i had just wanted to get lost in a story. and maybe in kindness the stars decided to align for…

heartache

Artist: One Ok Rock

So they say that time
Takes away the pain
But I’m still the same

And they say that I will find another you
That can’t be true

Why didn’t I realize? Why did I tell lies?
Yeah, I wish that I could do it again
Turning back the time
Back when you were mine, all mine

So this is heartache? So this is heartache?
Hiroi atsumeta koukai wa namida he to kawari oh baby
So this is heartache? So this is heartache?
Ano hi no kimi no egao wa omoide ni kawaru
I miss you

Boku no kokoro wo yuuitsu mitashite satteyuku kimi ga
Boku no kokoro ni yuuitsu furerareru koto ga dekita kimi wa, oh, baby
Mou inai yo mou nanimo naiyo

Yeah, I wish that I could do it again
Turning back the time
Back when you were mine, all mine

So this is heartache? So this is heartache?
Hiroi atsumeta koukai wa namida he to kawari oh baby
So this is heartache? So this is heartache?
Ano hi no kimi no egao wa omoide ni kawaru
I miss you

It’s so hard to forget
Kataku musunda sono musubi me wa
It’s so hard to forget
