Colors and Sounds

Pebrero 19, 2008

Did you know that colors have sound? Five musicians created songs inspired by a color. Five directors also made music videos for the songs. Among the compositions, my favorite is Marie Digby’s “Paint Me in Your Sunshine.”

Paint me in your sunshine/ Wake my sleepy eyes/ Round me in your comfort/
Stay with me for all of time

Reach your hand/ I’ll follow/ Darken clouds for your rays of hope

So paint me in your sunshine/ Walk with me, stay by my side/ Fill my head with stories/ For love and war and glory

Reach your hand/ I’ll follow/ Light the path that will lead me home/ Oh, oh, Home

One day the world will grow colder/ Everything we’ve come to cherish crumbles/ And only then will we turn back and remember your glow

Paint me in your sunshine/ Leave the part of you behind/ Tell me where I’ll find you/ And send me off to another day/ Till we meet tomorrow

Reach your hand/ I’ll follow/ Hold me close till the day that I grow old/ Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh, Oh/ Mm, Hmm, Hmm, Hmm

Looking Forward To

Enero 8, 2008
I watched some of the film entries in the recently concluded Metro Manila Film Festival (MMFF). What really caught my attention was the trailer of the full-length animated film Urduja that was being shown before the featured film. Here’s a glimpse to this upcoming movie:
According to legends, “Urduja” is a 14th century warrior-princess who ruled the Kingdom of Tawalisi in Pangasinan. She was famous for leading a group of woman warriors who were skilled fighters and equestrian. Historical reference to Princess Urduja can be found in the travel account of Ibn Battuta, a Muslim traveler from Morocco. He stopped by Tawalisi on his way to China and had known Princess Urduja.
Urduja will be in theaters some time this year. I will definitely see this one.
