Ideas are free. But the connective tissues and membranous interstices are what constitute creative work. Psychopomp Mode.
You gestalt when the Muses seem to be absent, and you’re running out of ideas on a Sunday evening.
My 800th Tumblr Post!
Gallica: Carte allégorique en japonais représentant l’Extrême-Orient
JE T’ADORE! Love allegorical maps!
US Eagle for the Philippines in 1900-1910, before the establishment of the Commonwealth of the Philippines. This is the period of Russo-Japanese War if I am not mistaken. And, oh my! It has a frigging RABBIT waving an Italian flag! (Green, White, Red) or should it be Dutch East Indies (Indonesia) with Red, White, Blue?
Leonardo Da Vinci - The Genius. Manila Exhibit.
My two-cents. #Wicked #WickedManila is frigging AWESOME (everything is awesome!) made more special with your significant other by your side, and in the company of outlaws.
Friend of Dorothy aside, it’s so funny and witty how they skewered the MGM movie, and not the least L. Frank Baum’s masterwork. To relegate poor Dorothy Gale’s plight as a footnote is a stroke of genius. Literally a foot note as evinced by calling the ruby slippers as ‘just shoes’! I love it, it’s so Barnum and Bailey, it’s the best show on earth!
I think the main reason why Avenue Q clobbered Wicked at the Tonys was because the latter is essentially and unavoidably obscurantist. It’s multilayered, byzantine and esoteric: the quasi-Victorian costumes, the ‘steampunk’ versus the ‘old ways’, the theme of ‘Industrial Revolution’. All that excluding the allusions of the original author L. Frank Baum, and the author of Wicked himself Gregory Maguire.
But of course all of these could be all in your head. For it is but a simple love story.
And that’s the thing about very rich and complex adapted, and remixed masterworks. You ‘dumb it down’ (or make more commercial) for the audience and voters, and still they would choose the simplest (but heartfelt) musical (very deserving) at awards night.
Remade my Lego Fire Boat which I used to play as Space Cruiser Yamato. #EverythingIsAwesome #Gestalt
The set is missing a lot of its parts but as Master Builder you make do with creativity, imagination and chutzpah :-)
Everything is awesome! Everything is cool when you’re part of a team!
Everything is awesome, when we’re living our dream! - Theme Song of LEGO the Movie.
I was 7 years old when I got my first Lego set. That was in 1982. A bright red Fire Boat with 3 firemen. It actually floats. It had hoses. The works.
My friends and I had just seen LEGO the movie, and it was truly awesome and much much more. It is witty, intelligent, and hilarious. It broke the fourth wall, too. Judy Garland even made a cameo appearance, albeit a disembodied voice.
When I got home, I decided to look for my first Lego set. Found them in an old cabinet, under a pile of Marvel Action Figures. What you see in the photos is what remains of the bricks and parts. The plastic bag containing the bricks also had my favorite Fabuland Motorcycle Bear. It also evidenced I played as how the kid character played in the movie, Lego remixed with other toys. Can you spot the blue Tyrannosaurus Rex? :-)
I am very happy. Am going to cry now.
The Mentis Flatuscence turned 3 today!

#Branding #Building #Architecture My #GraphicDesign for a Building. (2005)
A very good start for 2014. Uncovering ‘lost’ design works to augment my online resume. So far this is my only brand design for a building / real estate project, NET SQUARE Building in Bonifacio Global City. Part of the progressive and green Net Group projects which include the gorgeous Net Lima, home of Wild Flour cronuts and Google!
Graphic design works include branding and corporate collaterals/materials design.
Finally found a pic from my old Nokia N93, circa 2006.

LEGO Widgets - Christmas Tree Ornaments Project: from a bag of random blocks.
Inspired by the Lego Santa tree ornament, working with my bricks, to do: Krampus and the X-mas Gang :-)

It’s fun to pile up and bury the books deep inside the crevices and ‘discover’ them later on, titles mostly non-fiction: history; comparative literature; religion and mythology; cartography; science and science fiction; design and art books. Action figures and dolls serve as genii guardians. :-)
