Lights of Sigur Ros

Before Taipei, I have never even heard of Sigur Ros. My music taste got stuck in the 90s for some time. The past few months has been a rediscovery. Sigur Ros, is a very new find. It is the type of music that you might need to learn to listen to, rather than fall in love at first sight.

It was indeed a performance. Lights, sounds, everything. I even got shouted at for talking to my friend. Hey, they weren’t even starting yet, at the time. But then again, this is Taipei. It took a while for them to even let the audience near the band. Everyone was just sitting down.

I even got to use Sigur Ros as a tool to teach John Dewey’s Art as Expression, particularly on the chapter Art as Expressive Object. 

Now that I am indeed remembering, we are not supposed to take photographs. But I took a few snapshots anyway. I’m not a big concert anyway, as concerts are usually out of my budget.

I really can’t get over the discipline of this crowd. I mean, just look at them! Still, at least I got to experience a night in Taipei, with no fear of getting crushed. I went home with a cd too. Something to listen to as I expand my horizon.

Adulting 201, attending baptism with friends and colleagues. Growing up so fast, yet I don't feel it! Seems like yesterday, we were singing karaoke until dawn, then getting a quick shower before rushing to class. Hello Baby Antoni! #adulting Ixalan is here! #gamerchef #mtg Students also contemplated on Ian Fabro's solo exhibition The Arrow of Time in the Heart of the sun. His use of staple wire and ballpoint pen is intriguing, along with his dark, religious-esque imagery. Beautiful works bordering on grotesque. #art #artstud #artstudies #museum Thanks to Veronica as well, for giving my next class a walkthrough. Museum education is very important, especially for young students. #art #artstud #artstudies #museum Thanks Randel for giving us a walkthrough of Norberto Roldan's Rituals of Invasion and Resistance. Rich learning experience for my class. #art #artstud #artstudies #museum #manila Magic the Gathering National Competition 2017. Fun times with magic friends. One key lesson: red hats are lucky! #manila #mtg #magicthegathering
