Can you hear it’s whispers

Once or twice

Voidness of the streets and shops

In fear of the people

Dangers lurk silently among us

Credit Card

It is futuristic money

Conveyed by limits and current spenditure

Converting tomorrows to cash in

Present in debt

TV Guide and My Childhood

There was a time when I was small, we used to flip the newspaper pages in search of the TV program. Eyeing the time and channel, those were the days when we run during commercial breaks for snacks and shouts for our siblings to gather when the show starts.

It was more of a routine once we settled down to a few drama. All of us would sit in the living room, snuggled up in our own spot while the show runs for an hour or so.

Occasionally, we would watch some movie and stayed up late to finish it. Unlike the modern age where we could all watch whatever we prefer, we used to choose a program where all of us could watch (but of course the news time was off limit for our parents to get updates of the latest news, TV remote control was once of the things we often find).

Netflix and live sports channel were a luxury back then so we used to wake up early to catch some cartoon; follow shows like Survivor or series like Gilmore Girls on the TV. When there were nothing interesting on, one of us would flip through all the channels and settled for one (siblings quarrels included).

Having such inconvenience were the reasons why we had more bonding in our family, getting our quality time easier than nowadays where all of us would be with our own phone.

Between the idea of old school style television and online streaming Netflix boom, I’d say I don’t hate the later idea either. XP

Half Done

I never felt so confused and disappointed by Hoshiai no Sora. A good original idea yet stopped in 12 episodes left the whole series hanging with tonnes of unresolved issues; which were planned to be answered if the series was to be completed.

I liked how the characters rely on each other and everyone chips in tiny chunk of bitter reality while they emmerse themselves in youth.

The art form and animation was commendable yet repetitive in terms of sports. The main focus of this was all about the drama but none was given a proper closure due to time constraint.

Was it a waste?

Maybe. Maybe not.

As far as an original series concern, the director can always pick it up as a different format now that the intro was done in animations.

With groundworks done, all he needs to do is finish the storytelling.
