I Got Wasted At The Summer Komikon 2013

It’s not what it sounds like.

Believe me, it was just too overwhelming to let pass.

John Nano, his brother in law (forgot you name, bro) and me opened up for the Komikon 2013 yesterday, and the exhibitors were just trickling in at 7:30am.

No, Not Yet

Being stuck in this matchbox I call my apartment (which is really a term the landlord used, but it’s okay, he’s a good guy) because my nose has been exhibiting a good imitation of the Pagsanjan Falls, and my throat just kept reminding me to lay off them smokes for a while.

I don’t belong to any crusade nor petitioners. I don’t want anybody suppressing my right to browse, search, share, download, rave, and rant online. If I have good reason to complain, gripe or criticize , I must be able to do so without fear of being accused of libel. I would like to illustrate what I feel, take photos of things and places and events that I feel should be seen by other people.
