13 Reasons Why The Linked Article is BULLSHIT, and Why The Whole Janine Thing is BULLSHIT Too

Please read the linked article before continuing below.

1. Your open letter speaks the truth, but lacks one more inconvenient truth that you failed to mention.

2. I can see that some parts of the letter are biased because you appreciate Janine’s decision more than you appreciate the value of human emotions, and the fact that sometimes, although very rarely, the “masa” is right.

3. Human emotion runs the world. We do things based on emotions, which create beliefs, which create actions, which create changes. You talk human nature, and I agree with what you have said.

4. The only thing I cannot seem to find is the paragraph concerning the “HOW” of the scenario. “HOW DID MS. TUGONON HANDLE HER SITUATION?”

5. It’s not a matter of her decision, BECAUSE SHE ALREADY MADE IT.

6. It’s a matter of how she handled the decision to leave her current boyfriend for some fellow from “The Script”.

7. I have no hatred towards anyone here, but speaking objectively, what Ms. Tugnon did was:

A. Her decision, yes. She has the right to make it.
B. Human nature, yes. People choose the “better” choice for survival and procreation.
C. Socially WRONG, MORONIC, and NOT BEFITTING OF A PROPER SOCIAL BEING (i.e. DECENT HUMAN PERSON).

8. She had no considerations for the feelings of her partner, of which she personally chose or agreed to have a relationship with. That’s definitely INCONSIDERATE, and “BITCHY”, which we can say is essentially SOCIALLY WRONG.

9. She HUMILIATED a man, WHO as far as we know DID NOT DESERVE IT, on National TV. That’s also UNFITTING of a PROPER MATE or HUMAN BEING. Remember when Willie humiliated the little boy on his noontime drive-shit?

10. She handled it all so terribly that somehow, it awakened the men of the Philippines to speak up and pass (for them) a well deserved judgment (which I don’t think was necessary). A MORONIC move for a person who wants to be loved or crowned Ms. Universe.

11. This is SOCIAL MEDIA and basically “THERE IS NO BAD PUBLICITY” here. We talk about it, it brings in more money.

12. By following this bullshit, we are exposing ourselves to the mysteries of the massive collective amounts of human population who watch and patronize Mainstream Television. I think that’s just fanning the flames.

13. Finally, after all’s said and done, I leave you with one last thing:

HOW WOULD YOU LIKE IT IF MS. TUGONON DID THAT SAME THING TO YOU?

Imparting Artists: Gotye

Making Mirrors Album Cover


I’d first listened to Gotye back in High-School when my friend found out about them through the internet. I was reluctant at first to try the new music, since I fell in love with rap music during my High-School days. Gotye is an indie multi-instrumentalist that makes electronic music. I’m not sure if the relevance of my info is correct, but there appears to be more than one person making the music, however the singer is one person alone. Wouter “Wally” De Backer, the main and if I’m not mistaken, only guy behind the composition of the songs, was born in Belgium, however, had moved to Australia during the early days of his childhood. An avid fan of Depeche Mode, one could easily see with the music he does, where much of his inspiration comes from.

The first song I’d listened to from Gotye, was the song “Heart’s a Mess”, the third track, and my personal favourite from his second album “Like Drawing Blood” (the first being “Boardface”). From the odd music video to the simple tune and beat of the song, “Heart’s a Mess” could easily be claimed as one of the most brilliant works of music ever produced. With the rest having a rather jolly or considerably trippy feel to the music; this one song had touched my heart more than most songs out there in my over three-thousand song collection. An example of the more “trippy” style of his electronic beat and instrument juggling would be his song “Learnalilgivinanlovin”; the sixth track on that same album. With a catchy beat, and a rather odd set of treble-high sounds, the song had gained a lot of popularity, especially through the movie “Going The Distance”, where it featured.

Going back to “Heart’s a Mess”, it had garnered my favour considerably with the amount of power in the simplistic lyrics that could be clearly understood by the first time one would listen to it. Thought provoking lines such as “Let me occupy your mind, as you do mine” attract me severely up to the point of inspiration. It would, however be negligible to buy an entire album for the sake of a single song, but in this case, it would make a very powerful exception. Unlike most regular artists of late, Gotye features lyrics that carry a sort of profound essence, whilst maintaining a relatively playful beat. Especially with the higher tones, the most emotion-provoking songs from Gotye have almost a jolly atmosphere with the ominous backdrop of a rather malevolent nature. All of these, encompassed, produce the distinctly loveable sound that defines Gotye.

With the release of his latest album “Making Mirrors”, Gotye comes back to life with the same style, except increasing the amount of songs relative to the theme of “Heart’s a Mess”. With the seemingly normal music video of his song “Somebody That I Used To Know” (from “Making Mirrors”) featuring the, also indie, artist Kimbra, Gotye dominates the style of music he produces. Again, the lyrics are well crafted, as well as the playful connotation with the beat, reviving the essence of “Heart’s a Mess”, the song “Somebody That I Used To Know” may very well be the aftermath of the aforementioned song. Listening to them in sequence, one could see the two as each a half of a constellation. The only thing left for the listener to do would be to connect the dots. The next on the list would be the song “Eyes Wide Open” from the same album as “Somebody That I Used To Know”. Changing his style a little bit, from the two songs mentioned above, “Eyes Wide Open” features a catchy tune, obviously electronically generated, and comparable lyrics to that of “Somebody That I Used To Know”. Not the best, however still one of my favourites, garnering the third place on my list from Gotye. Truth be told, the two songs (“Somebody That I Used To Know” and Heart’s a Mess”) mentioned in this article may have been the mother of two or three of my short stories and poems.

I expect more great music from this artist in the months and years to come, currently leaving me with a good 4.95 out of 5 stars (rather precisely). There’s no overuse of much dramatic effects, just plain good music to help one think, or, more appropriately, feel the emotions that, although are relative with regards to each person, we all go through. I would, however, recommend the purchase of the album “Making Mirrors” to support this great artist. If not, you can check the links below for the music videos of “Heart’s a Mess” and “Somebody That I Used To Know”. I’d give you a standing ovation any day, Gotye. I hope you continue the music.
