Andy Dufresne: That’s the beauty of music. They can’t get that from you… Haven’t you ever felt that way about music?..You need it so you don’t forget. 
Red: Forget? 
Andy Dufresne: Forget that… there are places in this world that aren’t made out of stone. That there’s something inside… that they can’t get to, that they can’t touch. That’s yours. 
Red: What’re you talking about? 
Andy Dufresne: Hope…Hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things, and no good thing ever dies. 

-The Shawshank Redemption, 1994

and so was red… the Shawshank redemption this fucking part poor brooks  amazing movie tho

-Remember, Red, hope is a good thing, maybe the best of things. And no good thing ever dies.

-i guess it comes down to a simple choice,really. get busy living, or get busy dying

Some birds are not meant to be caged, that’s all. Their feathers are too bright, their songs too sweet and wild. So you let them go, or when you open the cage to feed them they somehow fly out past you. And the part of you that knows it was wrong to imprison them in the first place rejoices, but still, the place where you live is that much more drab and empty for their departure.
—  ― Stephen King, Rita Hayworth and Shawshank Redemption: A Story from Different Seasons

I literally just did a Tim Robbins an hour ago on my apartment’s roof deck.

The minute I stepped out into the rain… I never felt so alive. Damn, I felt so finite.

Lightning flashed. The thunderstorm was just a few miles from where I was standing, but fuck it. Even if I die due to a lightning strike it will still be one for the news.

“TL sa Convergys naigo ug kilat, patay!”

Ain’t it a grand way to die. Matud pa ni Kurt Cobain, it’s better to burn out than to fade away. But I had no plans on dying tonight. Pamasin thoughts lang gud kung maigo ko ug kilat.

I also had some coins in my pocket while I was doing some Goku shit, prancing in the puddles of the rooftop doing Kamehamehas towards the sky. Kung maigo ko ug kilat and I survived, I’d like to see if the coins in my pocket fused due to the heat. I’d also love to get those spidery thingies on my skin as seen from lightning strike victims.

Lightning flashed again. I remembered the fight in the movie Pacific Rim between the Jaegers and the Kaijus during that double event when the ridiculous Chinese triplets went down like a stupid, melted candle. Rain, lightning and thunder.

Gi tugnaw nako ato so I went down and changed clothes. Mana ang drama. Huhah!
