…:::New Age:::…

Posted in poetry, Uncategorized on January 27, 2011 by Yamil

Morning sun bathed my skin
as birds their melodies sang,
to them I feel akin
and their happiness I could outrang.

For the world has given me
a treasure for most unknown.
Our love, celestial glee,
even kingdoms has outgrown.

Pushed aside are my worries,
I welcome the new enchantment
of a life with new stories
full of joyful excitement.

In the dawn of this new beginning
I look down in my core,
for the strength to lead again
and my fears to leave ignored.

…:::Autumn Death:::…

Posted in poetry, Random with tags , on January 23, 2011 by Yamil

Weakening heart of a broken man,
moving to the beat of a funeral march,
like a leaf on autumn hanging from a tree,
withering slowly from a single thread attached.

His mind escaping the realm of reality,
ghosts of his past haunting his being.
His sanity threatened by the grief of the lost,
the flash of the future that will never come.

His battered body the sign of failure,
blood gashing from his countless cuts.
A silver knife stuck in his chest,
the single witness of a life’s end.

Marks on his soul, restless being,
scars of years of mindless hopes,
that were destroyed on the sunset of a life,
clearly given to the search love.

A woman besides the dying man stood,
tears as diamonds descending through her face.
Her hands stained with scarlet life,
her sanity escaping with every breath.

With all her might, her lover she held,
in a desperate attempt to keep him with her.
Guilt filled her every thought,
as her fears at last were proven true.

Their love forbidden had always been,
their souls should never had share their beat.
With death their treason was in time paid,
to the broken hearts that behind they left.

…:::Music Monday – Shortcut To Last:::…

Posted in Music, Music Monday with tags , on January 17, 2011 by Yamil

After an exhausting few weeks of final exams at university I am finally able to start posting again at my blog, and what better way to do that than by posting a new Music Monday. By suggestion of my friend from Canada, Justin (Check out his blog here), I checked out this band called Shortcut To Last. Needless to say, I simply had to share it. Their music remind me of the good old years before punk rock had gone mainstream. They are releasing the music video for their new single called It’s Not Enough later this week but in the meantime check their first one from the song Undone below. Also visit their MySpace, subscribe to them on YouTube, follow them on Twitter, and if you like them, get their album on iTunes. Enjoy! Click on more to watch the music video.

…:::Multi-Genre Research Paper — Video Games as an Art Form:::…

Posted in Uncategorized on January 11, 2011 by Yamil

I. PROLOGUE

Video games have been a huge part of my life. When I was a little kid my brothers taught me how to use the controller on the NES and since then I’ve always played video games. As I grew up I watched how video games evolved into this huge phenomenon that they are now. They are so evolved that by now video games are being adapted into motion pictures. For this reason, even though I use games for my entertainment, I started to realize and see video games as an art form.

When I read Robert Ebert’s post I couldn’t help but feel like his evaluation of video games as a whole was quite unjust. That someone would even dare state that video games are not art and will never be simply sounded to me somehow difficult to understand since in my opinion they already are a combination of forms of art. For this reason I chose to write about this topic.
