artists and armpits

‘Watched another presentation of the French Spring in Manila Fest at the Republic of Malate last night, a mélange of abstract dance forms, light acrobatics, and comic acts. These French artists always have this distinct I-don’t-care-what-you-think-of-my-art air that works well with their haughty, almost raw artistry. The music was provided by an ensemble of bongo players, percussionists, and an accordion player with a beret. So typically campagnard. ‘Reminded me of virtousic musicians at the Metro asking for a few coins, spicing an otherwise boring trip through dark tunnels and stinky train stations that looked like oversized bathrooms. If we only had such musicians in our trains here, then smelling the stench of other passengers’ armpits would be more bearable.

> festival

salut slimwhale. c'est incroyable et je ne crois pas que les fêtes me manqueront parce que j'habite a cebu :( en tous cas, merci pour les nouvelles (news?). je n'ai pas pensé que tu parles bien la langue française. je suis en train d'étudier la langue mais je suis très lente .. hehe donc, pardonne-moi pour mon pauvre français. ^_^

julsitos,

intoxicating putok. they should apply something stronger. like insecticide.

it's a necessity for me. art, in whatever form, nourishes my soul.

pink lemonade diva,

they still won't do it. i'l try experimenting with various positions. maybe doggiestyle will do the trick.

thanks for dropping by.

Trans,

City life makes me think of decadent thoughts.

Macapobre,

L’ambassade doit apporter tous les artistes à Cebu aussi pour les autres qui ont envie de les regarder.

Moi non plus. Je faille trop d’erreurs grammaticales car je ne le parle pas bien. Pas encore. Mais, j’essaie de pratiquer la langue avec mes amis. Il y a une école française à Cebu, ou tu t’es inscrit dans un université pour étudier la langue?

Dionne,

I miss munching freshly baked baguette while walking on cobbled streets. Tous les choses qu’on a fait là me manquent. Mais je suis sûr qu’on y ira. Bientôt.
