[cover] the eraserhead’s “with a smile”
I spent the most amazing day at DLSU’s #ArtofCosplay yesterday all dolled up in an outfit to pay tribute to NANA’s Serizawa Reira. No pictures just yet — cosplaying is just like performing on stage so I wasn’t able to pull out my iPod to do a bunch of selcas. My group was assigned an official photographer though, so as soon as those go up on the event’s official webpage I’ll share them up here (oh geez, I hope I looked good).
But I’ll reserve another post for that day. Today, I’m back in the workshop with something new to share with you guys. This is my second take of this song while airplanes arc in the sky above my house and little kids play hide-and-seek as best as they can outside in broad daylight.
February tends to be the awkward month in the whole bunch — it goes by quick and yet manages to pack so much of a punch that you wonder where the time went. In places that have more seasons than the country I live in, it’s still wintertime, though spring is just a little over a month away.
I can imagine that the wait for warmth can be a bit nerve-wracking and maybe that’s why over the last couple of days, myself and some of my friends have felt the need to reestablish ties with each other all over again; clasp virtual or physical hands in each other’s to say: Hey, not going anywhere. Will just be right here, okay?
I wanted to share this particular take — awkward pauses and all — so that we can pretend that you just came over to my place to hang out with me while I rest my aching feet from yesterday’s event, my fingers curled over Rufio’s keys.
I’ve no one to spend Valentine’s Day with — not in the traditional sense, but that’s okay. Today isn’t just a day for couples the way love isn’t just for people who are in love.
So good morning, good afternoon, good evening to wherever you are. It’s a pleasure for me to share my second song of the year with all of you.
