LUPAM! | An Exhibit of Self Portraits

I am back in Pangasinan and just in time for Dagupan City's Bangus Festival too. I have a lot of activities to do here on my list this summer, and one of them is to visit this local art gallery I've heard so many good things about. Even though quite new in the area, Liongoren Gallery's previous exhibits together with Biskeg Pangasinan Art Collective had been all a success. This shows beyond doubt the amazing talents of our local artists, I happen to know a number of them too (Hello Kat, Rhen & Ma'am Grace!). So today, at last, I was able to attend the opening reception of LUPAM! An Exhibit of Self Portraits and I must say I am very, very impressed. Aside from the brilliant art works on display, there was poetry slam and a live band to complete this awesome experience. Kudos to everyone who put the event together. And oh, I heard that the next exhibit will be as exciting as this one so watch out. Follow Artcetera and my page LVLY GREY on Facebook for updates.

 LUPAM! Exhibit is open to public from April 18 - May 15, 2015. Visit them and show some love by including #BISKEG #LUPAM #PangasinanArtScene on your social media posts.

Gone Girl Movie Review

I didn't know about Gone Girl until I saw a couple of articles about it posted online. But Ben Affleck bores the hell out of me (it's not you Ben, it's me), or so before I watched this movie, and that's the reason why I ignored it at first.

But what made me watch the movie? Peer pressure.


If it weren't for my friends, I wouldn't have discovered this thrilling, captivating, mentally and emotionally challenging story that will make you want to know more about.

The movie was so good it deserved all the recognition they are receiving right now. Gone Girl has been well-accepted both critically and commercially as a matter of fact. Ben Affleck, in the movie, was a natural asshole; Neil Patrick Harris - hopeless romantic / filthy rich, possessive martyr; Emily Ratajkowski - a young, flawless home wrecker; and Kim Dickens a badass investigator - she is the epitome of an older, wiser, real-life cool girl. Wouldn't you agree with me on that?


And Rosamund Pike, my God! **Separate paragraph for RP since I really really like her** I felt like an Amy Dunne in the deepest, darkest compartment of my soul is trying to come out. I was moved by how you portrayed the character, YOU ARE Amy Dunne. You're not a damsel in distress! You are the most stunning, well-organized psychopath, an emotionally unstable, attention-seeking rich kid who is very passionate of the one person who will eventually cheat on you and break your heart and ask for divorce because you lost your cool all those eccentric, sex-driven, perfectly imperfect, happy married life you are trying very hard to show in public and in front of your idealist parents and their fancy way of making you feel down along the whole process. Rosamund Pike you deserve all the nominations and whether you get or not these best actress awards, you are still highly praised by all. We want to see more of you in the future!

I loved the movie so much, I bought it in paper! Gillian Flynn, you are a master storyteller. I truly admire your work. Thank you for being the author of Mr. & Mrs. Dunne's twisted, wicked lives. I still believe it's an open ending. More psychological thrillers please!


 “We weren’t ourselves when we fell in love, and when we became ourselves – surprise! – we were poison. We complete each other in the nastiest, ugliest possible way.” ― Gillian Flynn, Gone Girl

Connection

"I've been having this craving; not so much sexual but a deep hunger for intimacy/closeness. That unexplained trust, an emotional connection." -Malanda J.

Raw

"I'm almost never serious, and I'm always too serious. Too deep, too shallow. Too sensitive, too cold hearted. I'm like a collection of paradoxes." -Ferdinand de Saussure

What camera do you use for blogging?

I never thought this time will come when I can afford to buy my own camera. It's true that all is not given to you, one must learn to work intelligently and persevere. 

I am using Canon EOS 70D and I honestly don't know yet how to operate its full function, neither use Photoshop to make retouches, but all in all I am happy with it. 

I am quite excited and frustrated at the same time, I mean, I have a new camera but who's going to take the photos for me? Like 'what now?' Hahaha. Ahh, I will figure it out. I'm looking into just settling this with an ol' trusty tripod. Yay!
