IT HAPPENED ON SOUTH STREET…

PHILADELPHIA, PA

HAHA MAG isn’t simply a virtual resource for art, we jump into the ring and spread great art throughout our community. Our side project, HAHA x PARADIGM works with street artists that have an active role in giving back through urban beautification.

This summer with the help of South Street HeadHouse District and our amazing roster of artists we were able to turn these bland, filthy electrical boxes along the popular stretch in Philly known as South Street into colorful mini murals.

Following Artists are Featured: Sophie Roach, Sean Talamini, NDA, Clint Tillman Reid, Jason Andrew Turner, Nate Harris, Miriam Singer, and Sean 9 Lugo.

You can take a tour of this project with awesome crowd pics using the hashtag #hahaxpara on Instagram.

Parang dati “See you soon” pero ngayon “See you later” na. 

Nung nag bakasyon ako sa ibang bansa sobrang LDR kami ni Tiphy, halos 5 hours ang oras ng pagitan namin at Eroplano ang layo namin sa isa’t isa. Pero nag hintay lang kami at nag tiis. Hanggang sa maka uwi na ako ng Pinas ulit. 

LDR parin kami ni Tiphy pero ngayong nasa iisang bansa na kami, Jeep at LRT nalang ang pagitan namin sa isa’t isa. Sa pag titiis namin, nakaya parin naming dalawa. 

Hanggang sa nag balak kaming mag kita sa Personal at hindi na thru Video chat. Yung yakap na matagal na naming inaasam sa isa’t isa isa’t isa, halik at pag hawak ng kamay, ay nag ka totoo na. Yung makita namin ang isa’t isa sa totoong buhay at hindi sa Video chat lang. Sobrang sarap sa pakiramdam. 

Sobrang sarap sa pakiramdam na makasama mo ang taong mahal na mahal mo. Sobrang sarap na mayakap at mahagkan mo ang taong matagal mo ng inaasam asam, Sobrang sarap makita sa personal ang taong matagal mo ng hinihintay. 

Hanggang sa mapatunayan namin ang katagang.. 

“Waiting is hard but worth it” dahil kapag talagang nag hintay ka sa araw na makasama mo na ang taong mahal mo kahit gaano pa yan katagal at kahirap, kapag nakasama mo na siya ay mawawala ang lahat ng bigat at hirap na nararamdaman mo dahil nakasama mo na sa totoong buhay ang mahal mo, at sobrang WORTH IT ANG LAHAT.  

Mahal na mahal kita, rantsandwords

Before anyone else…

STAR MEGASTAR. Now that that’s out of the way…a large solid steel Spanish handgun that was available in .45 ACP and 10mm Auto. The one in the photo is a .45 ACP example, which are not as desirable as the 10mm versions. Both models use a 13 round magazine, although Promag is currently the only company that makes 10 round magazines for states with restrictions. However the Promag mags don’t seem to function very well in these. (GRH)

mattmurdockakadaredevil asked:

what do you do when all you can write about is one feeling, and none of what you write is happy? how do you find inspiration to write about so many feelings? also, do you have any pets?

I have a ca!t Her name is Lydia Bennett and she is my main hang.

I think you can give yourself permission to write about something as much as you like. Honestly, most poets tend to do their strongest work on only a handful of subjects, I know that I tend to gravitate towards the same things over and over. Any variation I would credit to time and experimentation. Still though, if you read my book it’s mostly about romantic love, trauma, womanhood and grief. To paraphrase Junot Diaz, those are just the things that have their hands around my throat.

So write it all out. Even if the work is not strong enough to work for lit mags or other publications, it’s important for you to put down on paper and process, and if it helps you grow personally, it’s worth writing. 

Besides, if it’s all you can write about and you’re repressing it, then you’re just not writing. In the same way that you need to listen to a song to get it out of your head, maybe you need to write out this feeling a number of times before it feels resolved for you.


Good luck.

Firstly, hindi ako nakikiuso kaya ako nagpost ng ganito. Gusto ko lang ng kausap kaya sige, ibash nyo ako kung sa tingn nyo worth ng oras nyo ang usapang ito. I won’t publish, kaya wag na kayong mag-Anon.

Marami akong kaibigang miyembro ng sekta na iyon. Gusto ko nga sila kase usually, full of wisdom sila. Pero anong nangyayari ngayon?

Hindi ako naaapektuhan ng mga isyu na yan. Simula sa isyu ng mga lider nila, hanggang sa rally nila. Pero nanunuod ako ng balita, nagbabasa ako ng dyaryo, at meron akong sariling isipan na gumagana kapag may nakikita o naririnig akong mga bagay-bagay.

Nagkaroon noon ng isyu yung lider nila. Tas ngayon nagrarally sila at pinaglalaban yung sinasabi nilang hindi naman daw binibigay sakanila ng gobyerno o state. Hindi ko alam kung ano yun noon, pero sabi nila mismo sa interview at mga plaques nila, separation of Church and state daw.

Ayaw nilang pinakikialaman ang kanilang sekta. Pero hindi naman sekta yung pinakikialaman. Iniimbestigahan lang yung lider nila.

Wala naman ngang masama sa rally. Actually, masaya nga yon kase parang nagrarock and rollsa concert ang mga tao. Pero ang tanong nga naman ng marami, bakit sa EDSA pa? Sagot nila, para mapansin daw ang kanilang hinanaing. Ngayon, napansin na kayo. Anong bunga?

Tuloy padin sila. Kahit na alam nila na nag kalaban nila ay batas. Natuwa tuloy ako sa paglalaban noon ng simbahan at pamahalaan tungkol sa RH bill. Kase yung paglalaban ng dalawang partido ay tahimik at nagpapakita ng maayos na pakikipag-usap, maayos na pag-iisip, at maayos na pagkilos.

Oo, naikumpara ko lang. Minsan talaga, kahit sa pag-ibig, may makukumpara ka.


Isa pang napansin ko, maraming nagsisilabasan na mga komento, meme, rants, at kung anu ano pa sa internet, sa tv, kahit sa kalye namin, sa texts, sa emails din yata. Maraming mga debate. Maraming tanong. Sabi nung isa kong kaibigan sa Facebook, “May masabi lang?”. Nasa isip ko, “Gumawa sila ng eksena, tas ayaw nilang may masabi tungkol sa kanila. Hindi manhid ang mga tao. Yung iba, nagmamanhid-manhidan lang, kagaya ng crush mo.”

Hindi naman masama magrally. Ang makasagabal lang ang nakakainit ng ulo. Hindi naman masama magpost, kaso wag din kayong OA kung ayaw nyo ng OA na reaksyon. Hindi naman masama sumunod sa lider, basta alam nyo yung pinaglalaban nyo.

Lastly, ito po ang ibig sabihin ng “separation of Church and state” kapag Ginoogle nyo. “…allows citizens the freedom to practice any religion of their choice, but also prevents the government from officially recognizing or favoring any religion.”

Mein Engel,

Ich mag manchmal gar nicht glauben, wie alles verlaufen ist und doch denke ich, dass alles einen guten Grund hat. Vielleicht haben er und ich nie wirklich zusammen gehört und der Richtige wartet noch auf mich. Irgendwo da draußen sitzt er und wartet auf mich, dass ich vielleicht an ihm vorbei gehe, ihn sehe und mich unsterblich in ihn verliebe. Vielleicht ist er auch schon total nah, die ganze Zeit in meiner Nähe und beobachtet mich aus der Ferne. Vielleicht liebt er mich schon und bewundert mich, nur kann ich es nicht sehen. Was für ein schöner Traum das wäre mein Engel. Ich kann es mir einfach vorstellen. Irgendjemand ist da, der mich bedingungslos liebt und glücklich machen wird. Ich weiß es und bis dahin warte ich auf ihn.

Kanjani8, Ribon magazine, 2008

*Ribon is a shoujo manga magazine; in the first pic, the guys are giving messages to the readers of Ribon.

(so, I was looking through the old magazines I have of Ribon and I’ve found these photos of Kanjani8; I remember that when I bought this mag and I saw these guys I thought ‘oh, a japanese boy band; it’s ridiculous how teenage girls idolize this kind of people and their music (I really hated idols and idol’s music that time); and this guy looks like a girl (Ohkura)”. 

I can feel my younger self judging hard my current self. Seems like I was a bit wiser in my teenage years)
