[1: 718 of 10,000] Why Do Writers Kill The Old Husband?

In Article on August 16, 2012 at 11:59 PM

Why do writers like to kill the old husband?

The wife’s common make-up is young, beautiful, and smart who is married to an old and rich or capable husband, and then the ugly husband dies instantly in the story.

Here are 3 perfect movie and television shows that I found old and rich or could afford to give gifts husbands died and the young, beautiful, and smart wives were either ridiculed, judged, or even blamed for the death.

The Widows (L-R): Legally Blonde’s Brooke Taylor Windham, Fairly Legal’s Lauren Reed, and the latest I’ve watched Bunheads’ Michelle Simms.

It does paint real life scenario that people have something to say about age difference and life status, and for a simple writer reason that it is a good twist and a source of drama.

Love between young and old are possible; when I was younger I have the fantasy to choose a man who is my senior because I can be sure he won’t be childish but mature enough to be a real man. As I mature I prefer someone closer to my age. How about a younger man than I am; I am still indifferent about that idea? I didn’t want to even entertain that thought before and now I just don’t find it worth pursuing.

What do you think?

In Question on March 3, 2012 at 8:43 AM

I’ve been watching US TV Series for a long time now. Since Friends, Dawson’s Creek, and now Gossip Girl. I grew up in the Philippines in a sort of conservative relationship culture and I always wonder if Americans do go round in their friends circle all the time or it’s just on the show.

Let us take for example the Dawson’s Creek show. Joey loves Dawson, but hooked up with Jack and then with Pacey. Dawson hooked up with Jen and then later with Joey. According to the storyline, they are all friends! I really find that weird that they go round. Or it is just me and my conservative perception that my friend’s lover can’t be my lover.

There is one particular guy who liked me but since I know that two of my friends liked him I stopped him from courting me. There is this another man who I knew had a relationship with one of my friends and although I don’t know both of them when they were together, when he started making his move with me, I didn’t encourage it. The thing is there are so many men in this world, it’s possible that I will find a person who doesn’t have to be hooking up with my circle of friends. It is not just weird but it’s like crossing someone’s boundary.

The Read. Issue 18 has this question from a reader and answer from the paper:

I like the answer of the paper and it reflects so much truth.

  1. People put on the edited version of their life. Not in a bad sense but I don’t always want to share my unhappy thoughts out for everyone to feel sorry and become sad but if I knew I needed help, I directly contact my family, friends, or the experts to actually sort my issues. It’s good to see the fun others do because we’ll have an idea on exploring the same things!
  2. We all keep the boring stuff to ourselves. This has been going through my mind since my teen years especially after watching a pretty cool movie. I wonder where the real boring stuff is; life can’t be too hectic, fast, and crazy exciting all the time. But getting bored and putting it out in the open pave way for a personal challenge that now it’s out, are you going to do anything about it? Or it’s just me who gets critical on self. 😀

[1: 320 of 10,000] His Side @ The Coffee Shop

In Short Story on August 9, 2011 at 10:49 AM

You may want to read the Part I: Her Side before proceeding to read this story.

I am a tourist and this is my last day in the city. I entered in a fancy coffee shop before I head back to my hotel to pack my things. I ordered my favorite frap and looked around to find a seat. My hands were colder than the cold drink I’m holding and my heartbeats are deafening. Across the room is the most elegant woman I’ve ever seen. Is this how love at first sight supposed to feel like? She seems in a rush but if I don’t try to talk to her now… I am an actor and here I am lost for words to tell her, I hope I don’t speak silly.

“Hi, I was hoping I can share a table with you?” I handsomely asked and saw her looked around and hesitated. Say something, so in my most dramatic and panicked voice I blurted, “Oh no!” and I smiled.

“What?” she asked with a quizzical look. Now she thinks I’m crazy but what a beautiful voice.

“You hesitated – May I?” I pointed the nearest chair waiting for her precious permission. Read the rest of this entry »

In Short Story on August 8, 2011 at 12:01 AM

I was in my favorite coffee shop waiting for my next meeting. I was busy sending e-mails, hectic as usual, when a gentleman approached my table. I looked up and saw a debonaire smile, well dressed for a casual attire, and holding a frappuccino – Frappuccino, really frap? I thought to myself.

“Hi, I was hoping I can share a table with you?” he asked in the kindest manly voice I’ve ever heard. I looked around swiftly and saw plenty of vacant seats. My mind was juggling whether to entertain this interruption when I heard him blurt out “Oh no!” then he gave away an almost shy but cute laugh and shook his head.

“What?” I asked, a bit confuse, now he got my attention.

“You hesitated – May I?” he asked pointing to the nearest chair. Read the rest of this entry »

[1: 315 of 10,000] The Next Three Days

In Review on August 5, 2011 at 2:06 AM

I just watched the movie The Next Three Days, which was written by Paul Haggis (also the Director), Fred Cavayé, and Guillaume Lemans, and it made me nervous like crazy. As my sister pointed out the character played by Russell Crowe is a regular guy, not an action superstar or a highly experienced detective, just a charming husband, a loving father, and a university professor. I was so worried for his plans and actions.

I know he was Russell Crowe and I know it’s just a movie but what if we really get into a situation wherein we’ve been trying to tell the truth but the established law or system just doesn’t listen. Will it be beneficial to risk it all for the sake of being reunited with the whole family? Read the rest of this entry »

[1: 306 of 10,000] Empty Spaces

In Journal on July 28, 2011 at 12:01 AM

Imagine a newly purchased Mac Mini still in a box. You open it and you see the merchandise wrapped in protective styrofoam on all sides; now do you see the empty spaces?

In our life, there are so many moments that we feel like we deserve the good things, we needed to be loved, but the good things and love come short. I read an article from Bo Sanchez called Allow God To Love You As You Are and there was my answer –

The reason why we’re so frustrated with people is because we want from them what only God can give to us.

If we ever feel empty, let us accept the beautiful love of God that is everywhere but we’re too blind to see.

[1: 282 of 10,000] The Declaration Of Love

In Poem on July 9, 2011 at 9:34 AM

You hug me through the sunlight

Blow a kiss through the air

Cool my head through the rain

You exist because I exist

I live because I came out of love

And of all the love that I know

Yours is what matters the most

Yours is the greatest

Because it doesn’t ask nor demand

It waits patiently for me to respond

Out of my freedom

Out of my freewill

Out of my voluntariness

They say that what we hate on someone is very revealing on what we don’t like about ourselves; having that in mind I am not sure if the next story is justifiable.

There is one particular person that I found arrogant for not accepting constructive criticism. She believed she had always done the right thing and have continuously fallen dropping contradictory statements. I have to admit that I hated her because of her displeasing attitude and I don’t appreciate the e-mails that she sent. Just typing about her now still makes my blood boils a little and I consider her the one person I don’t want to ever pretend speaking too ever again. I wanted a sincere apology from her and I don’t mind giving her mine if in some way I offended her on pointing what she had done wrong. I want her to perform better at work but maybe she’s in the wrong career in the first place and I never got the chance to talk to her about it because she won’t listen and I won’t teach to someone who doesn’t want to learn.

Along the way we will really meet people who get under our skin. Did the incident really reveal my own weakness? Yes, because I hired her only to terminate her in the end. She is a person I don’t like and may never have her as a friend and I accept that. I am grateful for meeting her because she made me realize that people can surprise us in an extreme way and there is more to learn about myself and others.
