Netflix’s Squid Game and the Nemesis of Equality

Netflix’s recent survival K-drama series Squid Game aims to address our qualms for equality. While Squid Game is an exciting survival series, what I love about it most is the political commentary behind its fascinating premise. Our world today is bombarded with inequality. Everywhere we go, we see inequality. And it sucks. We see that the world is a tall pyramid where very few enjoy … Continue reading Netflix’s Squid Game and the Nemesis of Equality

Why Watching Comedy Sitcoms Has Become My Most Unproductive Task

I’m a slacker. While I rejoice in having to post more than ten blog posts in the past month, I have not earned a single penny out of it. It has become a hobby, but I’m hoping that I could at least garner more traffic and follows in the future. What makes it worse is that I have been into comedy sitcoms again (since September), … Continue reading Why Watching Comedy Sitcoms Has Become My Most Unproductive Task

Everything That’s Not Ironic in Alanis Morissette’s Hit Song

Alanis Morrissette’s Ironic is one of the hit songs during the 90s, and it’s in fact, the most popular one from the alternative pop princess. It’s been many years since I have learned what exactly “irony” was (after watching Reality Bites) and the song’s Irony has bugged me for years. I am finally able to write about it now after I was reminded of it … Continue reading Everything That’s Not Ironic in Alanis Morissette’s Hit Song

My Top 10 Most Favorite Tribute Songs for Mom

Happy Mother’s Day! This is one of the very few worldly celebrations that is worthy of being sensationalized.

Everyone is still Caught Up with D’Angelo’s “Untitled” after 20 Years Except the Philippines

I chanced upon a video of R&B singer Brandy singing along spontaneously to D’Angelo’s Untitled (How does it feel) while I was browsing my Twitter feed. I have caught myself being in the same situation a thousand times. Now it occurred to me that it is this year that the sexy track would celebrate its 20th anniversary, as well as D’Angelo’s seminal album, Voodoo. Untitled (How … Continue reading Everyone is still Caught Up with D’Angelo’s “Untitled” after 20 Years Except the Philippines

Max von Sydow Tribute: One of the Kingpins of World Cinema

No one can ever write about an actor as vividly as his close relations, co-actors, and directors, or perhaps a fan who has been following his work for many years. However, I am quite enamored by Max von Sydow, not because of a necessary tribute, but because as good an actor he was, I found a little space for him in the cinephile division of … Continue reading Max von Sydow Tribute: One of the Kingpins of World Cinema

The Pop Blog just Made it to Feedspot’s Top 20 Pop Culture Blogs

Running a blog is no easy task. The basic hardships are writing, photography, multitasking, content brainstorming, and everything that my co-bloggers at the Davao Bloggers Society are good at. However, it doesn’t stop there. Even if you have great content, it doesn’t mean that people are gonna find out about you or if they do, it doesn’t mean that they will be converted into subscribers. … Continue reading The Pop Blog just Made it to Feedspot’s Top 20 Pop Culture Blogs
