Evanescence's "My Immortal"

by Zernain Villain who is sorry for giving Ms. Poison Ivy her scars and tears

I'm so tired of being here
Suppressed by all my childish fears
And if you have to leave
I wish that you would just leave
'Cause your presence still lingers here
And it won't leave me alone

These wounds won't seem to heal
This pain is just too real
There's just too much that time cannot erase

When you cried I'd wipe away all of your tears
When you'd scream I'd fight away all of your fears
And I held your hand through all of these years
But you still have
All of me

You used to captivate me by your resonating life
Now I'm bound by the life you've left behind
Your face it haunts
My once pleasant dreams
Your voice it chased away
All the sanity in me

I've tried so hard to tell myself that you're gone
But though you're still with me
I've been alone all along

Slayer's "Raining Blood"

by Zernain Villain for falling prey to human frailty, getting into foul trouble (9 out of 10) early in the game of life, and hoping to keep #6 (thou shall not kill) until his shot clock runs out

Trapped in purgatory
A lifeless object, alive
Awaiting reprisal
Death will be their acquisition

The sky is turning red
Return to power draws near
Fall into me, the sky's crimson tears

Pierced from below
Souls of my treacherous past
Betrayed by many
Now ornaments dripping above

Awaiting the hour of reprisal
Your time slips away

Raining blood
From a lacerated sky
Bleeding its horror
Creating my structure
Now I shall reign in blood

12-inch kitbashed Snake Eyes

Sinong mag-aakala na isang pipi ang siyang magiging pinakasikat na karakter sa lahat ng G.I. Joe. Bukod sa balot na balot ang buong ulo't katawan ng itim at wala ni isang salitang binibitiwan, wala ring impormasyon hinggil sa pagkatao ni Snake Eyes (classified). Isang malaking palaisipan ang itsura ng mukha sa likod ng maskara. Ito ang dahilan kung bakit maraming kolektor (isa na ko) ang nahihiwagaan sa kanyang persona kaya't isa siya sa mga tauhan na madalas i-customize. Sa pamamagitan ng kitbashing o pagkuha ng ilang accessories mula sa ibang action figures, naging libangan na ng marami ang pagdadamit/pag-aarmas kay SE tulad ng ginawa ko rito sa 1/6 12" scale na Hasbro 25th anniversary edition ng unang bersiyon (commando) nito. Ipinapakita sa movie poster sa background ang ikalawang version (ninja) ni SE.

SWAT BDU (battle dress uniform), camouflage na pantalon, web gear, pistol belt, holster, knife sheath, elbow at knee pads, combat boots at ski mask

IMI Mini-Uzi SMG (submachine gun na may folding stock at removable magazine), H&K MP5K-A4 PDW ("personal defense weapon" na may folding stock, front grip, removable magazine at silencer), night-vision binoculars

MP5-A2 (SMG na may fixed stock, shoulder sling, removable double clip at tactical flashlight), Colt M1911A1 (semi-automatic pistol na may removable magazine)

H&K Socom Mk23 (semi-automatic pistol na may removable magazine at LAM "laser aiming module"), MP5-SD6 (SMG na may retractable stock, removable magazine at silencer)

Milkor M32 MGL (multi-shot grenade launcher na may folding stock at front grip)

Samurai katana sword na may nakaukit na marka ng Arashikage ninja clan at bayonets

Angelo Reyes (SLN)


Dito ba sa mundo ano ang tunay na kailangan?
Ang magpakasarap at magkamit ng kayamanan
Ano mang kayamanan na akala mo'y walang hangganan
Darating ang panahon iyan ay iyong iiwan

Sobrang kapangyarihan
Sobrang kayamanan
Sobrang katakawan
Ilan sa mamamayan ang nagsisigawan
Mga ganid! Mga ganid!

Marami ang nag-akalang siya'y makabayan
Gumamit pa ng salitang "kalayaan"
E ang demokrasya at kalayaan
Ay nakasalalay sa ating kakayahan
Na pigilin at kontrolin
Ang pagnanasa at mga gawain

E ano bang gusto mo na magpapasaya sa iyo?
Ito ba ang karangyaan sa pamumuhay

Malaking bahay
Magarang kotse
Maraming pera
Magandang asawa
May mga anak
May mga damit
Masarap na pagkain
Sikat na sikat kasi may pangalan
Pero nakalimutan ang Diyos

Ang daming namatay noong nakaraang patayan
Ilan ang mamamayan na nagsisigawan
Tahimik! Tahimik!

Dashboard Confessional's "Stolen"

by Zernain Villain about a girl

We watch the season pull up its own stakes
And catch the last weekend of the last week
Before the gold and the glimmer have been replaced
Another sun-soaked season fades away

You have stolen my heart

Invitation only, grand farewells
Crash the best one of the best ones
Clear liquor and cloudy eyed, too early to say goodnight

You have stolen my heart

And from the ballroom floor we are in celebration
One good stretch before our hibernation
Our dreams assured and we all will sleep well

You have stolen my heart

I watch you spin around in your highest heels
You are the best one of the best ones
We all look like we feel

You have stolen my heart
