"But the peculiar evil of silencing the expression of an opinion is, that it is robbing the human race; posterity as well as the existing generation; those who dissent from the opinion, still more than those who hold it....All silencing of discussion is an assumption of infallibility. Its condemnation may be allowed to rest on this common argument, not the worse for being common. "(John Stuart Mill)

Breaking the barriers of freedom expression. Defying the controls of public opinion. Love it or hate it. Do It Yourself!

To all zinesters out there, let us connect!

Appreciating the rain (part two)

This is the sequel of my FX-lingo-decoding spree. Yeah sure, I said I would delete the previous post. Obviously, it is still there. I just can't get rid of it, in the same way that i'd rather sacrifice an hour of sleep just to figure out what those terms mean. As you can see, I work at night and i could use some of those travelling hours napping. But instead, just like a nosy gossiper, i'd listen intently to the  conversation. Sometimes, these confused drivers would look at me, wondering what I'm doing. And i could tell, they want to ask this infamous question: Ms. adik ka ba? Hahahahaha. Really, this has become my morning habit. 

Ok, so FX lingo part two, here we go:

Kilo - Ok. Example: Pare olympics na sa como como. kilo na. (pare, wala ng traffic ng commonwealth OK na.)

tango sierra - tandang sora

charlie mike - counter flow

baga - ma-traffic. kasi puro red lights and mga sasakyan, lahat naka-stop. Example:pare kilo dito sa san pedro pero baga pag dating mo ng pamela (pare ok na sa st. peter pero traffic pagdating mo ng philcoa)

lapot - (ma-traffic) Example: Malapot na dito sa malaking bilog (ma-traffic na dito sa circle)

butasin/ binutas - pinagsikapang malusutan ang traffic Example: Wag ka na dadaan ng Q.I malapot masyado, ang tagal kong binutas iyon. (wag ka na dadaan ng quiapo, ang tagal kong nalusutan iyon). Uhmm, diko sure kung tama ang translation ko, pero more or less yan ang idea. hehehe

karapatan - CHR dun sa may UP

Uniform - u- turn

Foxtrot Charlie Mike - (fairview center mall)

Money market - i laughed hard at this one. hahahahahaha. Ok, money market is MMDA. money market, deposit account. makes sense diba? hahahahaha. Some use double mama instead of money market

Soliman - sandigang bayan

Lolit - landbank sa tabi ng sandigang bayan

Pantalon - pantranco

Kapitolyo - Capitol

Rowena - Robinson. Finally! After sooo many months. hahahaha

142 - thank you

There are still other terms that I want to know. :) i think i'd have a hard time controlling my curiosity. hahaha.

The "Auteur" (sic)

Whatever you give a woman, she will make it greater. Give her sperm; she will give you a baby. Give her a house; she will give you a home. Give her groceries; she will give you a meal. Give her a smile and she will give you her heart. She multiplies and enlarges what she is given. So if you give her crap, be ready to receive a ton of shit.

Express yourself

This site's main purpose is to somehow educate you about the Philippine fan/zine scene. I DO NOT DISTRIBUTE these fan/zines. If you want to have your own copy, the DIRECTORY is here and the LINKS are already provided so you can contact the zine editors directly. BAWAL ANG TAMAD. If you are too lazy to contact these zinesters, then you are giving me the impression that you are also too lazy to read. Enough of spoonfeeding. I don't have time for sluggish protozoans.
