The Vampire Lestat

Posted by Donovan Jahiko , Thursday, November 5, 2009 5:05 AM


Certainly Anne Rice is a genius!
In the Book “The Vampire Lestat” tackles the origins of Lestat from Human to Vampire
The depth of the Story was pretty intense which made the whole story enticing.

The Vampire Lestat is the second edition of Anne Rice’s Vampire Chronicles which tells the story of Lestat De Lioncourt; a 200 year old Vampire originating from Auvergne France, An impoverished Aristocrat due to his brother. After running off to Paris to be an actor together with his close friend Nicholas De Lenfent, Lestat was bitten by an old Vampire name Magnus which started this story.


Unlike other Vampire Tales, Rician Vampire’s Do not turn into bats, they can see their reflection in the mirror also another difference I have noticed, for them to be transformed into a vampire; one must be drained of their blood to the point of death and feed from Vampire blood.

What amazes me is that she created an entire world which was vividly described which makes you believe you where inside it. Honestly I even forgot to eat because I soaked in the story.

Lastly “The Vampire Lestat” is a prelude to the book “Queen of the Damn” and let me tell will make you gasping in the end!

eons ago!

It feels like eons since my last blog, actually two months. I’ve been busy! Uber busy
Now updates!
I bought myself a PSP… Yes I am total geek gamer! Aside from that I currently hooked on shopping online **oh credit card bills** but I least I’m buying books!

Amazon is such a beautiful place to buy those hard to find books! The sad part is that I have to wait for 30 days before I receive them so I’m counting the days. *Sigh*

Interview with The Vampire By Anne Rice

Posted by Donovan Jahiko , Sunday, August 23, 2009 7:56 AM




I finally finished the book. I bought the book about a month ago, yeah I know I'm a slow reader but In my defense I was busy with work,


Now let me give a little taste of what I read

In San Francisco, a vampire named Louis tells his 200-year-long life story to reporter Daniel Molloy. He told the story of how be became the creature that he is now and how he came to know Lestat, Claudia and Armand. All three Characters played a big role on Louis’s narration.

I must say I was enthralled on how Anne Rice made the scenes life like, very intricate and beautiful

This Book was even made into a movie *which i bought when i stumbled on a copy on a local video store on my way home* starring Brad Pitt as Louis, Tom Cruise as Lestat , Christian Slater as Daniel Molloy a.k.a the boy interviewer of Louis, Antonio Banderas As Armand and the young Kristen Dunst as Claudia

Frankly the movie was not that shabby however it lacked the story, as always on Hollywood interpretation however the actors made it very good special mention on Brad Pitt.

Now I'm reading the other second book which is "The Vampire Lestat"

Until then.

Passing Time

Posted by Donovan Jahiko , Saturday, August 22, 2009 6:34 AM

A Saturday evening on a bus going back to Cebu what else to do but watch a flick on my gadget..
The movie was rather strong to be honest, it had its own shear drama and comedy but it overwhelmed to a point of making a sort of poem.

And here it is..

I'm waiting for time to pass
waiting for time to give me freedom

I sit here dealing with the truth
The truth that my wounds will never heal

I have called for God and nothing has relieved me
I have thoughts, thoughts of the past

I crawled to the farthest end and yet there is no escape
I call unto the sky yet I feel no pardon

Imprisoned, Yes feel chains that keep me wide awake
Fighting the void that you left like running from an endless nightmare

I keep repeating the same words, words that would stop me from hurting.

I've spent so much time crawling and hiding just because i had feelings for you.

Coldness that reeks from me, no fire left, just cold tears

My love for Sarcasm!

Posted by Donovan Jahiko , Monday, August 17, 2009 6:36 AM

As per merriam "Sarcasm" is defined as

  • a sharp and often satirical or ironic utterance designed to cut or give pain
  • a mode of satirical wit depending for its effect on bitter, caustic, and often ironic language that is usually directed against an individual b : the use or language of sarcasm
Otherwise known as wit!

which only means it takes Intel to pull that off and even get them! I love the fresh smell of sarcastic remarks! In fact i eat them for breakfast! *I wish*

I'm not being full of myself *just to clear the air* I'm just saying I comprehend, adore the humor and beauty of sarcasm.

I remember I told someone "Hey I'm really sorry to burst your bubble but you know what the universe is laughing behind your back, poor girl" I had to tell her or i might start laughing at her too, I was trying to be nice right?!

And let me tell yah Sarcasm is just one of the services i offer and mind you it's free so take it!

It's quite admirable when one attempts to use be sarcastic however I'll stop admiring when you can't pull it off.

Sarcasm is a Language and thus you need to practice.. Try doing that in the mirror and I might say your a genius but remember talent is talent ~wink~

I'm getting bored with my job. I thought i wanted a career and wear a tie, turns out i just want the pay check and that's why i pretend to work and they pretend to pay me! don't you just love this world!

Cheers!

The Wish

Posted by Donovan Jahiko 6:10 AM


This is one of my unpublished works... If you find this poem kinda gloomy, it supposed to have that **I hope you feel it too**

I wrote this about a year ago and I was rather disappointed with someone, very disappointed to be honest and i made this for him.

The title "the wish" is like my wish for him not specifically my wish for myself *Unselfish right?* LOL

Anyho here it is.

"The Wish"

from my heart to your heart
from my eyes to your eyes
we see things that are there, sometimes are not
I hear my heart speak to you. it wishes the world to know who you are
Proud and braverly it whispers

My wish comes from tears
Do you hear it? Do you hear what it says?
I see you clearly. You breathe fear which cripples you i wish to help you.
if your fear blinds you to see tears in people faces then you are in more pain than i could imagine

My heart to your heart
My eyes to your eyes
Let out what is inside and break free
your fear will do nothing for you.
It maybe seem as a friend but it hides a different face

the beauty the lies in the end will only be lies nothing more
If you linger in the shadows you will never see daylight
you couldn't see cheerful faces.

Your heart to my heart
your eyes to my eyes
I only wish you true happiness away from the imprisonment of fear
please hear me

A Christian band that promotes soft rock music style. Led by vocalist singer and youth pastor Mark Hall, guitarists Juan DeVevo and Hector Cervantes, violinist Melodee DeVevo, Chris Huffman on bass, Megan Garrett on keyboards and accordion, and drummer Andy Williams.

I listened to there album one Saturday morning and i liked it. There is one song that really got into "Who Am I" from there self titled Debut Album. A moving song id say! I listen to it when i feel down.

I couldn't find a there Music Video in Youtube but i did find something Interesting

Here is the Lyrics of the song

Who am I?

That the Lord of all the earth,
Would care to know my name,
Would care to feel my hurt.
Who am I?
That the bright and morning star,
Would choose to light the way,
For my ever wandering heart.

Bridge:
Not because of who I am,
But because of what you've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who you are.

Chorus:
I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow,
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still you hear me when I'm calling,
Lord, you catch me when I'm falling,
And you've told me who I am.
I am yours.
I am yours.

Who am I?
That the eyes that see my sin
Would look on me with love
And watch me rise again.
Who am I?
That the voice that calmed the sea,
Would call out through the rain,
And calm the storm in me.

Not because of who I am,
But because of what you've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who you are.


I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow,
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still you hear me when I'm calling,
Lord, you catch me when I'm falling,
And you've told me who I am.
I am yours.

Not because of who I am,
But because of what you've done.
Not because of what I've done,
But because of who you are.


I am a flower quickly fading,
Here today and gone tomorrow,
A wave tossed in the ocean,
A vapor in the wind.
Still you hear me when I'm calling,
Lord, you catch me when I'm falling,
And you've told me who I am.
I am yours.
I am yours.
I am yours.

Whom shall I fear
Whom shall I fear
I am yours..
I am yours..

Posted by Donovan Jahiko 1:13 AM

Chris Daughtry is Simply talented! I saw this video in youtube like a month ago and shockingly he is singing "Poker Face" by Lady GaGa, If I'm not mistaken he sung the song in a radio station in Germany... And i know it doesn't fit right? However i did listen to the song and guess what its AMAZING! For real!
