Something to keep in mind

"The first thing any critic ought to make clear is his capacity for boredom. The man who never yawns in the theater is a menace to it, as callow and gullible as he is insensitive. Only maniacs are never bored.

The extreme, total pleasure a critic gets out of a work of art is so elating that, in its absence, he resembles nothing so much as an addict who has lost his hypodermic."

--Kenneth Tynan

Oo nga no? Kung impressed ka lagi with everything you see, may problema ka nga..hmmm. Buti na lang hindi ako madaling ma-impress. Hehe.

Minsan, nakakatulog ako sa play. Ano tawag sa akin? Antukin.

ey IAN, tsalamat as usual. :)

hi GYPSY, buti ka pa di madaling ma-impress. i'm a sucker for anything done ordinarily but sincerely. :)

hello CORSARIUS, i do yawn at the theater, i've even dozed off in the middle of a few plays, hoping that nobody would notice, haha. i've tried using wordpress--or at least the template i liked sana--but matrabaho pala, oc kasi ako, hehe. dito na muna for the meantime. :)

oo ABANIKO, i've seen you asleep during plays, minsan nga humilik ka pa, but mahina lang naman, and i had my elbow to stop you right away! :)
