Morning


..And then I opened my eyes from forever's rest
upon seeing the skies I felt like doing my best.
The faint glow of the sun's enough for making me run
All day from the dawn up until I am done..

One by one.. a silent song is subtly sung
on-and-on they slowly gather.. the old and the young
preparing the voyage without bearing no baggage
they've got a world to pillage, and just a little time to manage.

Because yesterday was totally clear of such dismay, 
but I'd rather be here and now, soaking the early rays.
And as the time progresses and unravels into the day
No clouds would be grey and none would go astray.

Gentle warmth apperceived as I tread the cool street
Pleasant gleam worn on faces of every citizen I meet.
When I awoke, there's you.. we're together, we're complete,
From my perspective your visage really knocks me off my feet.

And now I am positive.. I most certainly can fly. 
Because once I stretch my arms I won't ever ever lie.
Never fall from the heavens, never ever will I die,
Gonna pull back the curtains, prepared to meet tomorrow's sky.

iPod App Review: Pound for Pound


Synonymous to the words Pound for Pound is the name Manny Pacquiao. No. This is not another boxing game. This game revolves around Manny in a fictional setting. He fights his way through henchman after henchman in one on one battles. At stake is the life of his friend held by thugs desperately forcing Manny to sign some contract. But the Pacman knows better, So he uses not only his fists, but  you'll see him kick butt as well.

Aside from the gameplay, this game reminds me of another iPod game I really enjoyed, which is Bruce Lee: Dragon warrior. The 3D graphics are great. Characters are well rendered. Manny in the game resembles the real thing.

The animation and the moves are fluid. It controls a bit like Infinity Blade and Blood and Glory where you swipe and dodge enemy attacks. It was better than what I expected, I just hoped that there were more oponents to fight and different modes to play with because it kinda gets repetetive after a while. The costumes in the store aren't that diverse either, they only vary in colors. Nonetheless, this game provided hours of fun though it also took just a few hours to finish.

iPod App Review: Army of Darkness


Based on 1993 film of the same name, this defense game stars the chainsaw wielding Ash Williams. You guide Ash and fight the evil deadites in order to protect the castle that is home to the Necronomicon Ex Mortis, the book of the dead. The horde is too many for just one Ash, luckily, some of the memorable characters from the movie (Lord Arthur and Duke Henry to name a few) are there to aid you, along with some infantry units and archers you can summon. Killing deadites has its rewards, you can earn gold and buy upgrades for the castle and your units.

Clarity


I wanted everyone to realize all the wonderful things that the emperor's council have done, the decisions they have made, especially the newly implemented decree. How well it was thought of and how it would positively affect the land.
But the truth is.. Nobody is stupid enough to believe such things.

The truth is, their naivety just made them the laughing stock and the center of annoyance not only here, but beyond the seas as well. The truth is, no good can come of this and could escalate from mere criticisms all the way to rebellion since people can only express themselves secretly. The truth is, the new commandment is flawed, it can be used to protect (more of) the authorities' own personal interests rather than the public's. The truth is, we cannot be controlled by this and we can go on expressing ourselves in anyway we can because it is our birthright as freemen. I love my land and most of my countrymen. I hate to see brave and honest people suffer for seeing through the king's new clothes.
