Ohno wasn't cute in Maou. He was fucking AMAZING. I can't believe his facial expressions, how it seems to convey so much with the slightest twitch of the mouth, the slightest change in his expression; Ohno, in all his Naruse/Tomoo complexity. I'm such a fan! If I used to be a crazy fangirl for O-chan, well now, he pretty much owns my soul. How can one person be a great singer/dancer/sculptor/illustrator/artist and a great actor all at once? 

Granted, he would have played Naruse better if he weren't so tan from all the fishing, devil characters are usually pale right? BAH. I WOULDN'T DEPRIVE O-CHAN OF HIS LOVE FOR THE SEA AND FISHING.

I keep on watching Ohno's solo concert performance of his butai song,  Deep Sorrow on Youtube- just to assuage my sadness that I finished Maou so quickly. The man is talent personified; oh how I love thee. And this song always gets to me. Check out the heartbreaking lyrics here, done by the awesome

AND OF COURSE, IT CANNOT BE HELPED! The PV for Maou's theme song, truth, by Arashi.
Hot hot hot Ohno. And everyone too. 
I love this dark look on Arashi! The whole song, the arrangement, the video, I love it!
I've been listening to this since it came out, and I'm still not sick of it.

I was reading in some forums that they were all surprised at Ohno's performance in Maou, surprised at his acting chops and how it's so opposite from his spaced out character on TV. I bet Joo Ji Hoon was amazing in Mawang (maybe I'll give it a go if I'm not so lazy, I did like him in Goong), but really, Ohno  has been honing his acting for so long already. Perhaps not in dramas, but butais (stageplays). I think they'd be even more amazed if they see a clip of him in a stageplay. Dramas are a different thing, but nothing he's not talented enough for. Riida's amazing. ;_;

And the whole drama itself, MAOU - it's definitely worth mentioning that the visuals were pretty amazing for a weekday drama. I'd love to direct or write a screenplay as well delivered as that. The plot twists, the perfect perfect perfect visuals and music soundtrack were just so...AMAZING. Everyone, download Maou's OST, by Hiroyuki Sawano! It was perplexing, and it had a sense of story. Candy for the ears (well, evil kind of candy. So much haunting music, and good guitar/orchestra renditions.) And the script! AMAZING. Seriously, I can't utter any other word than that. It kept me on my toes with the smart suspense that the script employed.

Toma played his role exceptionally too. I believed his anguish, which was pretty hard to portray in just 11 episodes. I was a bit iffy of all the screaming and running like a psychopath that he did...but then, like I said, I believed his anguish. I'm usually not a fan of dark dramas, but Maou was simply too good to pass up on.

It's one of those dramas that I never wanted to end. GIVE OHNO MORE STARRING ROLES IN DRAMAS, HE IS SO WORTH IT!!!!!!!!!


Yes, it's 4AM. Gieo, Marky, and Claire just left. I'm so happy that my weekend de-stressing pulled through: drinks with friends, and Maou marathon. It's certainly been a hellish midterms week, and I so deserved this day of doing what I want to do instead of what I have to do. 

And yes, Pattee, happy birthday! Thanks for treating us in Racks for dinner :] Maski I was super asartado. What's new. You all just love me that much, yes? HAHA.

Great day without any school shit to do. I'm sorry, ganyan na kababaw ang kaligayahan ko. I'm so happy.

I've spent half of supposedly one of the most auspicious dates ever sleeping, waking up at around 3pm. But it's sure worth it, Bernice, Lyle, Carlo and I met up at Magallanes on a whim to welcome Bernice's birthday 12 midnight earlier today. We just hung out at Kublai's, drinking some beer and smoking the life out of our lungs while talking and laughing. Carlo, Lyle and I kept on making fun of Bernice's happy hour. Bakit kaya, haha. Stayed there till 3am. Not bad for a Thursday night. (And it was fun to make salubong a birthday!)

In an hour or less, the Beijing Olypmics is about to start! I can't wait for the tennis showdown. Rafa against Fed, I wager. And swimming is always a thrill to watch. Anyway, might be going out later. Lots of events around town. Or, I might suddenly get lazy and just stay in. A samurai movie, or Alphaville (for the nth time) cuddled underneath my comforter with some Tempura Chips and M&Ms sounds pretty tempting! HAHA.

Happy birthday to two of my bestfriends. Bernice and Claire! You two are among the best people ever ever ever born. I love you two to pieces... Here's to the big two zero! :) Holy crap, bente na kayo! TWENTY!!! Freaking 20. Then it's my turn soon. I CAN'T IMAGINE @@ Anyhoo! Let's party away tomorrow with the rest of the gang, yes? :] WEE.

I was (still am) exhausted out of my wits. Yesterday was a perfect day of sorts.

5:30am to 4pm: Trish and I went to a tree planting in Bulacan, sponsored by CSB's campaign, One Million Trees.

SO MUCH GREEN SPACE. We hiked beyond that forest then planted trees half of the day, mostly in muddy uneven ground or spots with chest high reeds!

What an experience. But the feel of soil on my hands was truly touching...something about it is moving. And the high that you get after planting one tree... wow. I planted about 20 saplings so it felt pretty good. I'm sure to do this again.

Bad shoe choice. Poor Chucks! Next time I'll wear waterproof boots! (like the ones security guards use or something.)

I don't know about you, but trees take my breath away. The older, the mangier, the better.

Yay for cheesy group pics!

Trish and I at the bus, tired but definitely satisfied. :)

4pm-6pm: Ride home. Slept for a little bit. Got home. Took a bath.

6:30-8pm: Picked up Bernice and Sari at Magallanes. Prayed through traffic that we'll make it in time. Laughed at Bernice's giddy antics. (She's the BIGGEST fan I know.)

8pm onwards: Arrived in Araneta. Had a total blast. LIFEHOUSE LIFE IN MANILA, BABY!! We had VIP seats, center aisle, just about 2 or 3 meters away from Jason Wade. And when the concert started we ran to the front.

Ber and I are EXCITED (well, Bernice was 100x more excited, but I was too, hahahaha)

He is intense live, like you wouldn't believe. And from our view, you could see his brooding gray eyes, and when his gaze roved over us...holy F. I always thought he was boyband-ish but my my my... HE'S SO HOT!!!!!!! Great performer. My favorite performances were Broken, From Where You Are, and Whatever It Takes.

53KRKJ239@#$RKSKLJDF. Those eyes. Gahhhhd.

The new guitarist dood. I don't even know his name but this pic is so energetic. Love it.

One more Jason pic because he is the shizzz. (I've gotten over my I-want-a-chef-boyfriend phase and am now back two steps behind: sensitive rockstar boyfriend. HAHA. On the way home, Ber and I were talking on and on about Jason & his surprising intensity and sensitivity live. Major hangover mehn)

After the concert we had a nightcap at Starbucks and mused giddily over the concert. Here's to a day of being a green thumb and getting to catch Lifehouse live. Awesomeness. Sana ganun nalang araw araw.
