..::Remembrance::..

This is a story I wrote a while ago. I hope that you all like it and I hope you missed my posts as well.

 

In the middle of a summer afternoon I walk down the road towards the small wooden house we used to live in, which now seems to have lost the battle against time; the forest that used to surround our home now threatens to swallow it. Streams of melancholy run through my veins as I get closer, climbing steps that have not been stepped on in years. I stand on the porch for a minute, half expecting to hear your voice call my name as the chimes that hang on the balcony dance to the wind. I am aware of the familiar warmth that radiates from everything in the place as soon as I cross the wooden threshold.

..::Escape::..

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , on June 18, 2011 by Yamil

Once again I allow my mind to create alternate worlds, worlds in which everything that is wrong does not exist. I put my hopes in those realities in an sad attempt to make sense of everything that surrounds me, for the world that I live in no longer feels like home. I feel like an alien in a strange land, a land that seems consumed with the wish of my destruction. I may sound conceited but this is what feels true for me. That is the reason why I escape; for those magic worlds in my head are a hundred times more safer than reality.

This is a small excerpt of one of my many new projects that I’m currently working in. I’ve been trying to write a little more now that I am on vacations. Hopefully I’ll be updating this blog more frequently.

I announced a few weeks ago that Shortcut To Last was about to release their new video. It took longer but it’s finally here and it’s f#$%!*g awesome!!! It’s called “It’s Not Enough” So take a look and remember to visit their MySpace, subscribe to them on YouTube, follow them on Twitter, and if you like them, get their album on iTunes. Enjoy!

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.

…:::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.
