It’s 4Am in the morning here in Atlanta. And under any other circumstances I’d be in bed right now, but thanks to all the tweetsters out there,
VICE GANDA, the one and only—not only just tweeted us, not only just retweeted our blog, and not only just followed @sebastianslife–but he had this to say:
From the bottom of my heart, thank “you”, Vice! You can see what the country thought Vice deserved by clicking here: #whatvicedeserves
Clearly, I put a particular amount of effort in that last blog. I sought not only to make a nice gesture to Vice, but to really objectively deliver a factual piece. Vice is in many respects one-of-a-kind, and under some factual parameters, yes, the most followed gay man in the world. The under-appreciated inspires me. Truth inspires me.
This was a remarkable wave of assurance. Na ku! Of course having my blog Retweeted a hundred times and spike with another two thousand hits is reassuring! And, the love is a two-way street! But an important note: I do not blog only to please people. I like the idea of blogging honestly. I am as biased as I am human. And, my preconceptions will naturally shape anything I have to say. But what inspires me above all else is the overlooked and the underestimated. When I see something either other people miss or all the more so if they deliberately choose to overlook, you best believe I’m interested.
In my last Vice blog I didn’t just reveal some new found statistic. The facts were always there. I merely connected the dots, in such a way most people don’t realize.
Some times, a complete and total stranger can tell you more about you than you imagined.
I’m the “Pilipino Kuno”. I’m an outsider looking in. The Philippines will forever be a world that isn’t mine. No matter how hard you try, you can’t inject the Philippine blood in me. Sayang!
It’s just me! I look forward to more blogs! More Philippine Showbiz! More Philippine culture! More Art! More You!
Good night beautiful people,
