Got myself a copy of Atlas Shrugged!

Guess what guys? Got my copy of Ayn Rand’s Atlas Shrugged and it came from Representative Em Aglipay of DIWA Partylist! Yey! (Aside: Sending all my love to Rep :)).

You may wonder how the hell I ended up with a representative sending me a copy of Atlas Shrugged. Well, it so happened that for the past few nights, Rep. Aglipay and I were talking about the books we’ve read. Of course, I mentioned how I love-hate Ayn Rand so much and it turned out that Rep. Aglipay is a huge fan of Objectivism. We both agree though that at the very least, Ayn Rand makes sense so I just can’t totally abhor her. Rep. Aglipay laughed when I said that Ayn Rand is a bitch.

So yesterday, I got to read a copy of Atlas Shrugged while I’m passing my time at a local bookstore. So there I was, sucked in to the objectivist Ayn Rand world again, ressurecting my Ayn Rand phase. Next thing I know, Rep. Aglipay is sending me a copy of Atlas Shrugged.

So behold guys! There will be a lot of Ayn Rand whining again. (Well, of course that’s after reading A Painted House and The Color Purple!)

Add me up in Goodreads guys! 

Rewatching: Julie and Julia

Now watching: Julie and Julia. Again. This is my second time watching this one. Surprised? Yes I know. I can’t even believe it myself. I love this movie so much that it almost has been my life peg and I am just watching it for the second time. But that is not relevant. What is more interesting is that while I’m watching the movie, I visited my now-dead blog I started exactly two years ago.

 

So here I am reposting my first post on that blog.

If you are familiar with the Julie/Julia Project or if you had watched the 2009 movie Julie and Juliastarring Amy Adams and the ever-dashing Meryl Streep, then you may feel very much familiar with the format of this blog. Yes, I was inspired by the idea of Julie Powell to do this project. But why make this blog? Let see: (1) I have nothing to do with my life and (2) I am freaking bored with it. So yeah, because I want to have a productive life, I do hereby commit for the total success of this blog and I will do anything, except dying and starving, to write for the sake of doing something.

So now the challenge.

100 Greatest Movies of the 1990′s as listed by digitaldreamdoor.com. 180 days of my precious life. Therefore, 6 months of making my eyes swell from radiation. No, I will not write movie reviews, so don’t expect to read about the framing and cinematography ad the effects. I will just write reflections from these movies. That’s it!
100 Movies. 180 Days. What will life has to offer me?

And now you know what happened. I failed. I didn’t even get to watch the 99th movie which is The Last of the Mohicans.

Oh well, I will just enjoy Julie and Julia.
