The saying: “first come, first served,” is very elementary.
But what is interesting about it is that it speaks about the very tenet of what is supposed to be the normative expression of justice in an avenue where consensus is supposed to be built, it is very similar to a situation when you fall in line to avail of something (like say at a fastfood chain). Where of course it is only fair for those who are at the front of the line to be accommodated first since they did made an effort to be on time or at least to qualify them as deserving of the commodified service because they came first from the others.
Now it would be a different story if someone is to cut corners.
If the interest of justice is supposed to be fairness. Then those who choose to cut corners should be reprimanded, while those who are in the line that have been deprived of what they ought to be getting at the right time since they’re on queue should at the very least be rendered an apology.
I am not trying to make a mountain out of a mole hill.
But a plain and simple pursuance of what the organizers of the gig upholds: Justice.
This was taken almost a year ago by my PayItForward band mate Cedric Buenviaje during Earth Decay 2010. Here I performed a medley of A Lullaby of Love & Loss with PayItForward’s A Childlike Response to the Nearness of You. Hope you’ll enjoy it.
Here’s a live take on DeathToPuberty’s recent performance at last month’s Lakefest. Anyways this is the same song and same set that’s also been taken by Jef of Konspirazine. Only difference is that this one’s shot at a different angle and was taken by Aldrin Peralta.
Here’s the alternate poster
Welcome to the new website. After years of neglect I’ve finally been able to change the layout and also get a great deal with a dot com domain. Hope you’ll like the new site and hope that you’ll like what you’ll find.
To quote Jeff of Konspirazine If you still believe in PUNK ROCK more than your tough guy HARDCORE, this is the real deal. Grand Hotel Paradox playing the PH in JUNE 2011! Support!

A couple of weeks ago I was able to share the stage with Buwi Meneses, the outstanding bassist of Parokya Ni Edgar and Franco, in a benefit gig that he generously organized for Greenpeace. It was great to be on-stage again. You can read more about the gig in a blog post that Buwi wrote at the Greenpeace Philippines’ blog.
