2019 and i am still teaching. shitton of papers are still waiting to be grad–
musings on current situations 2019
dystopia– orwellian shenanigans was three decades ago; mandatory rewatching of akira (dir. otomo katsuhiro)and blade runner (also, a necessary re-reading), mikhail red’s seemingly try-hard #woke film, and all of that good shit. knocks on your door, “do you have a minute to talk about our lord and savior duterte?” then shoots you in the face, coppers comes after the first pigs clean up the list. from tokhang on the streets tokhang still on the sheets, door to door amazon deliveries of fucking 45s to evangelical missions inside the schools. “mamser, pulis ho, kayo po ba’y kapatid sa pananampalataya? maari ho bang mailagay kayo sa listahan?” the next thing you know, fucking copper deep within your heads.
dystopia– waking up every morning with the thought of fucking talking to npcs for the whole week. waking up thinking that you wake up to be a teacher in 2019. chat spamming shitty npcs for 4 hours a day, plus fucking weekends. fucking scripts are broken. spaghetti codes. glitches in discussions. no bug fixes. you are necessitated to be your own engineer. fucking npcs. not even giving you bonus gold, not even xp. might as well reset, better yet, delete account. sell items. go afk. second semester: perma afk.
the slow cancellation of the future– waking up each day to talk to the worst kinds of npcs in town: artists. high prices, too bad if you have low speech skill. worse than your khajeet. tfw everyday you take part in ‘the daily hauntological breaks for permanent midnight’. bawal mag shades, madilim, walang streetlights. every wondering eyes, reprogrammed to look deeper into your souls, that is, to reprogram you, eat shit that literature is beautiful, poetry is humane, but poetry is a savage god. lvl progress is regress. digital to analog.
new age maoism– click here ->>adf.ly reflexivity is passe, albeit non-conformist posturing, safe space is primary, essential, necessary. must be protected at all times. main story line quest: convenience to story
progregression. cuba0 city. today x future. class consciousness “if deemed necessary”. stay critical at all times. sinong nagbabasa pa in 2019?!
tomorrow, another monday to start gr1ndin those gears. check for glitches. tweak codes. </fuck you> eat data. oil is no longer primary; data surge. check for glitches. be the glitch. eradicate. delete. </delete>. thank you for your visit. received necessary validation through site visit. thank you for getting your time expropriated. give me currency. neo manila arrives from the future.
