Mysterious Ticking Noise

As a prequel to my latest (and probably everyone else’s XD) Harry Potter obsession, here’s a nice little song for all you Potter fans by puppeteer, Neil Cicierega.

Ahahaha! This song is stuck to my head right now… somebody get it off my brain! XD

Steampunk Laptop

Ya know what would be so cool?

If I had one of these Steampunk custom laptops.

Yep, I also love the Steampunk fashion genre. What can say? I love mechanical stuff, even though I’m not much of a tinker. If this thing gets broken, I’m gonna have a hard time fixing it. XD

For those who wish to be educated in the world of fashion (harhar), steampunk is a sub-culture of science fiction, and it focuses more on the fashion statements made during the “steam era” or Victorian age, when steam power was first put to use and studied. Most of the time, steampunk fashion involves a lot of leather, copper, bronze and polished wood. Steampunk fanatics tend to “alter” certain objects, like these laptops or even cellphones, so that they would look like something that came out of a Jules Verne novel.

Unfortunately, steampunk is not readily available here in the Philippines, because it’s hard to find stuff like steampunk goggles and buckles and boots and stuff. Sheesh, I really wanted one of those steampunk goggles too… ~_~

[Poetry] Pablo Neruda’s Sonnet XVII

*This is actually a new concept I thought of. I know I’m supposed to write only my poems, but I have read way too many great poems from other authors to just rave about my own works. So, I’m putting up other poems that I’ve read before, marking my favorite parts and then sharing them, for the enlightenment of other readers.^_^v*

**My favorite parts are the ones in italic XD**

I actually heard this poem a long time ago, while watching Robin Williams in the “Patch Adams” movie. It’s a really lovely poem and very romantic.

Sonnet XVII

I do not love you as if you were salt-rose, or topaz,
or the arrow of carnations the fire shoots off.
I love you as certain dark things are to be loved,
in secret, between the shadow and the soul.

I love you as the plant that never blooms
but carries in itself the light of hidden flowers;
thanks to your love a certain solid fragrance,
risen from the earth, lives darkly in my body.

I love you without knowing how, or when, or from where.
I love you straightforwardly, without complexities or pride;

so I love you because I know no other way

than this: where I does not exist, nor you,
so close that your hand on my chest is my hand,
so close that your eyes close as I fall asleep.
