May nakilala akong pintor noon.

Nagsimula sa mga linya.
Unti-unting iginuhit ang bawat nadarama.
Pagmamahal sa isa’t-isa'y ipininta.
Hanggang sa binigyang kulay ang pagsasama.

Pwede ko bang gamitin ang ilang saknong sa iyong tula upang gawing inspirasyon sa nililikha kong obra? Ika niya.

Oo, huwag kang mahiya. Ibubuhos ko sayo lahat ng letra. Bawat titik, bawat taludtod ay iaalay ko sayo. Huwag ka lang mawaglit sa tabi ko. Ika ko.

Pula, pula ang kulay na nabuo
sa ating pagsasama.
Dilaw, dilaw ang kulay na
nagniningning sa iyong mga mata.
Asul, asul ang kulay na nagpapaalala ng
mga ngiting gumigising sa aking mga umaga.
Itim, itim ang kulay na tumapos at kumitil
ng ating ligaya.

Bakit nagkaganito? Unti-unting naglaho
ang ipinintang obra?
Bakit nagkaganito? Natabunan ng
poot ang ating pagsasama.
Bakit nagkaganito? Biglang nanlamig.
Biglang nawalan ng gana.
Bakit nagkaganito? Mga pangakong
binitawan ay nawala na.

Dumating tayo sa punto na
naging malabo ang lahat.
Nauwi lang sa wala, pag-ibig
ay tila hindi pa sapat.
Namumuhay ba tayo sa iisang
kwento at naging alamat?
Nailimbag sa isang libro na
kailanma'y hindi na naibuklat.

intrusive audio ads

If you’ve been active on tumblr lately, you may notice that they’ve started running a new type of ad in the right-hand sidebar unit. Specifically, there’s been an uptick in ads that auto-play loud audio, some of which are even un-mutable.

We’ve addressed this in Anti-Capitalism version 1.3.0, which adds a new option:

(small mea culpa: the naming here is slightly confusing. this will *always* remove the sidebar ad, even if it doesn’t happen to be one that plays audio, because we don’t have the ability to distinguish between them. the other difference is that it does it in a way that also takes care of the audio-visual component instead of just hiding the ad, like some adblockers have been doing)

(EDIT: yes, you’ll have to refresh the page after installing the extension/enabling the option. It sounds like this might also conflict with other ad-blockers, so let us know if you have any issues and/or try disabling other adblockers first and see if that fixes the problem)

EDIT 2: as of 7/26, conflicts with other extensions or ad blockers should no longer be an issue.

let us know what you think! I’m probably going to be going to bed soon, but you can always reach us in our ask box, our support blog, or our live support chat. In general the dev team has less time to reply to asks nowadays because of both real-life obligations and the sheer quantity of asks we receive, so you’ll generally have a better time with the support chat, if you can catch one of us online. If nobody is online, you always can leave a message for us to read later. thanks for understanding!

(one last plug—If you’re interested in helping us run New XKit, for example by answering asks or helping other users with questions + problems, come stop by and introduce yourself! we don’t bite, we promise!)
