I am piracy.

Piracy

Love/Hate Me

I am evil but the masses love me like they do one of their jolly next-door-neighbors. It cannot be helped. I am lovable.

Like a lie that becomes the truth after being spoken too often, I am everywhere. Look closer.

I am not proud of myself for robbing certain industries with their hard earned money. Of course, they all have the right to detest me.

But in a sordid place where I can be someone’s ticket to momentary happiness without sacrificing twenty items on the grocery list, I am Robinhood. The twisted version.

I do not wish that you to patronize me nor do I expect you to treat me as if I were manna from heaven. I just want you to consider why it is nearly impossible to get rid of me. Like everything else in this world, I happen for a reason.

I am a closet jologs.

Like everybody else, I also have skeletons in my closet. Skeletons, being movies that I wouldn’t be caught dead watching. LOLs.

I listed three of them. I hope you can relate.

1. Got to Believe – The first movie that made me want to watch Tagalog movies again. You can’t really blame me for having these hostile feelings after seeing a string of  grade 4 section Z tagalog movies.

Too bad Rico Yan’s life had to be cut short after this hit the box office. Tsk. Tsk. I remember being so excited to go to that noontime show (where Rico was one of the hosts) during our ECE tour in Manila. We were scheduled to go there on a Monday but Rico Yan was already pronounced dead on Good Friday. What a waste.

2. My Bestfriend’s Girlfriend – What a pleasant surprise this movie was. It was probably a good thing that I didn’t expect a lot from it.

I made it a personal goal to watch as much Richard Guttierez movies as possible and keep them dearly in my memory over the years. Given what his barbaric mom has been doing lately, it might not be long until his career will be over. Seriously.

3. Forevermore – Neglecting the “nagliwanag ang mga mangga” scene, this movie was okay.  It wasn’t the best but I truly enjoyed watching it.

I used to be a huge giggly fan of that Jericho guy but the moment I knew he abandoned two sons from two different mothers, I also abandoned him. I even locked the doors and threw away the key. Hahaha. Childish.

Oh, just ignore me. This is my inner jologs talking.

I am a hopeless romantic.

rhett

Clark Gable in Gone with the Wind

5. Rhett Butler

to Scarlett – “No, I don’t think I will kiss you, although you need kissing, badly. That’s what’s wrong with you. You should be kissed and often, and by someone who knows how.”

Now here’s one byronic hero who can ruin your reputation and spoil you rotten while he’s at it. “Go ahead Rhett, ruin me!” says my inner groupie. Hehehe.

chuck bass

Ed Westwick in Gossip Girl

4. Chuck Bass

to – Blair – “Not as clear as the sound of you purring in my ear, which I have been replaying over and over.”

Emphasis on the Season 1 Chuck Bass. God I love his witty one-liners– biting and ever so cruel. Sadly, everything went downhill for him in Season 2. Must be the hair!

darcy

Matthew McFadyen in Pride & Prejudice

3. Fitzwilliam Darcy

to Lizzie – “By my honesty in admitting scruples about our relationship. Could you expect me to rejoice in the inferiority of your circumstances?”

I thought Colin Firth is the only one who can pull off the Darcy character. I thought wrong. Matthew McFadyen pwned the part. Every little twitch he makes with those facial muscles, reminds me of great acting.

Edward_Cullen

Robert Pattinson in Twilight

2. Edward Cullen

to Bella – “I leave you alone for two minutes and the wolves descend.”

I’m really tempted to write “need I say more?” but that would go with the assumption that every living , breathing female on earth is attracted to him. My 83-year old grandma isn’t because she hasn’t read the book nor watched the movie. Well, if she did…

gu jun pyo

Lee Min Ho in Boys Over Flowers

1. Gu Jun Pyo

to Jan Di – “You’re like a stain that I want to erase.”

He’s number 1 not because he’s the best but because he’s the latest addition to my multitude of sins. Hahaha!

heart

I won’t be too preachy about it but take handsome, uber-rich, honest-to-a-fault, charming, infamous and semi-obnoxious away from the equation and you’ll get men who love their heroines with stalker-ish delight.

That was my top five. What’s yours?
