Imagine right before your eyes. Sea levels have risen significantly, inundating coastal cities such as Yokohama, Mount Fuji erupted in living memory, and climate change has occurred. With the seasons being less pronounced, the winters are milder and the summer isn’t scorching anymore. The reduced human population has reverted to a simpler life, and the reader is told this is the twilight of the human age.

Besides enumerating the indulgence of the Prophet Doom.

Life on planet earth is not as bad as you think. To all the lucky survivors. You don’t need to wake up 4:00 am in the morning to prefer you’re self for a big task in the office. There is no more heavy traffic in the street. You don’t need to wrestle your way in the commuters train. No need to worry about increasing prices of oil and consumer goods. No more mountain of paper works in the office station. No angry customer. No rush service. You don’t need to hide from a tax man. No expensive electric bills. No need to worry about your credit standing. A Sudden disappearance of demanding bosses.

Your new alarm clock is crowing at the break of dawn (“cock-a-doodle-doo”) a rooster.  You can wake up in bed at any time you wish. Take your morning breakfast free from high anxiety. Write your beloved poem with out a hustle. Practice your photography as long as you want, listen to birds, go fishing, paint nature, do home improvement at your pace. Read your favorite books. No war only peace. Back to basic.

Rather than get all angsty about how civilisation is slowly but inexorably fading away, the survivors enjoy a peaceful and idyllic life, full of reflection and wonder for the world around them. Nobody gets stressed, angry or downbeat; they go about their usual routines with moments of sadness or disappointment met with quiet resignation. The English phrases “life goes on,” “the good old days,” or “these things happen…” are summed up with one succinct phrase that encompasses poignancy and bittersweet sentiment.

In Quiet Country Cafe Meet Alpha Hatsuseno an android (“robot person”) who runs an out of the way coffee shop, Café Alpha, on the lonely coast of the Miura Peninsula of Japan, while her human “owner” is on a trip of indefinite length. Though she spends much of her time alone, Alpha is cheerful, gregarious, and unlike the slowly declining humans. Alpha is Immortal.

During my Greek Mythology class my professor told us to draw one mythological God or Hero. Most of my classmates choose to draw the popular one like Perseus, Zeus, Hercules, Aphrodite. While Me I choose to draw Hera. Because I find her very intriguing.

A young beautiful woman, said to be the most beautiful of all goddesses, even beating out Aphrodite.

Interesting Fact: Hera is said to restore her virginity each year by bathing in Kanathos, a sacred spring. One tale suggests Hera used magic to force Zeus into marrying her in a secret ceremony. Given some of Zeus’s later behavior, perhaps it was a secret even from him. Other tales have Zeus seducing her, in the form of a damp cuckoo bird seeking refuge in her lap during a storm.

The Story of Argus – sometimes I think the origin of these being are from another world or may be an alien being. Argus has a special ability to see everything around him like a modern CCTV surveillance cameras. No matter how strong and fast his opponent he can always telegraph an attack. He can evade and do a counter attack.

Hera almost caught Zeus with a mistress named Io, a fate avoided by Zeus turning Io into a beautiful white heifer. However, Hera was not completely fooled and demanded that Zeus give her the heifer as a present.

Once Io was given to Hera, she placed her in the charge of Argus to keep her separated from Zeus. Zeus then commanded Hermes to kill Argus, Hermes, disguised as a shepherd, first put all of Argus’s eyes asleep with spoken charms, and then slew him by hitting him with a stone, the first stain of bloodshed among the new generation of gods. In Ovid’s interpolation, when Hera learned of Argus’ death, she took his eyes and placed them in the plumage of the peacock, accounting for the eye pattern in its tail 39. Hera then sent a gadfly Greek oistros, compare oestrus to sting Io as she wandered the earth. Eventually Io settled in Egypt, where according to Ovid she became the Egyptian goddess Isis.

Girl found dead in Los Baños

10:32 pm | Wednesday, February 29th, 2012

LAGUNA—a 14-year-old high school student was found dead, with marks indicating she could have also been raped, in Los Baños, Laguna, yesterday.

Supt. Dante Novicio, the Los Baños police chief, said in a phone interview that a resident found the victim’s body in a banana plantation in Barangay Batong Malake past 9 a.m.

Initial police reports said a pair of jogging pants the victim wore was tied around her neck, which may had been used to strangle her to death.

“Her underwear was also removed,” said Novicio, although autopsy results have yet to be completed to confirm if the victim was sexually abused.

Police identified the victim as a second year student of Batong Malake National High School. She used to sell sampaguita leis to earn extra money, Novicio said, quoting the victim’s neighbors.

Police requested that the identity of the victim be withheld. The victim’s family has been informed although they have yet to give a statement to police.

In October last year, a student from the University of the Philippines Los Baños (UPLB), Given Grace Cebanico, was murdered and raped, prompting tighter security inside the university compound and in the surrounding villages of Batong Malake and San Antonio.

Cebanico was abducted by the suspects, a tricycle driver and a bank security guard who were later arrested, near her dormitory in Barangay Batong Malake, but her body was found in a remote portion of the UPLB campus in Barangay Putho-Tuntingin. Maricar Cinco, Inquirer Southern Luzon

Johannesburg – A teenager bit off a man’s tongue while he was raping her in Masoyi, near Hazyview, Mpumalanga police said on Monday.

The 17-year-old girl was held up by an armed man and his accomplice, and dragged into bushes on Saturday, Lieutenant Colonel Leonard Hlathi said in a statement.

The man with the gun told his partner to fetch alcohol and some friends to gang rape the girl. He then forcefully undressed her and began to rape her.

“In the process, the suspect tried to kiss the victim, but she bit off his tongue and ran to nearby houses for help,” he said. Police were alerted, tracked down the man and arrested him.

He was being kept under police guard in hospital, but was expected to appear in the Kabokweni Magistrate’s Court when he was discharged.

I enter the room. The scent of Dolce and Gabbana perfume is in the air. Laser light flashing right on my face. The room is full pact with party people. All of them are dress to kill. The DJ play the sound track of the movie “The Shinning Through”. in title “I’ll Be Seeing You”. Every one dance in a very slow pace.

Gee it’s a painful thing to a loner guy like me. I saw my crush 150 meters away. around a dozen Romeo’s asking her for a dance. It gives me no option but to cut through the dance floor, take my chances. mid way across the dance floor I accidentally collided to her path. I pause for a few second I can’t believed all the blocks just fall  in the right place. Before i open my lips. Somebody tap my arm. owe its Abella the school Paparazzi. He said to me. Let me take a picture it may last longer. I try to move my body near to my crush. But I’m to shy. She instead  hook her arm in my shoulder. To enhance the situation. It turn out to be a  memorable romantic portrait.

The next day I got a copy of the photo, in my Facebook account. I immediately show it to her. She was delighted by the result of the snap shot. These may not mean anything to others. But for a kid like me. It’s big time. These may be the start of something wonderful. All of this things may not be possible with out the help of Abella. Thank you my friend. Now to share this wonderful moment to my WordPress followers & friends. I converted the photo into an Anime illustration.

Hand Drawn by Yours truly. Deadman Wonderland Character. Leading Lady, A mysterious albino girl that Ganta encountered during his first days as an inmate. Clothed only in a skin-tight bodysuit and large gloves, which help conceal her heavily scarred skin, Shiro stands out among the other prisoners due to her bizarre appearance and mannerisms. To Ganta, Shiro’s manner of speaking and acting remind him of a small child, even though Shiro is the same age as him. However, Shiro possesses inhuman physical abilities and has an intimate knowledge of the prison, having apparently lived there most of her life.

If you like dark, gory, and psychological sci-fi than you should definitely pick up Deadman Wonderland. Set in a future where Tokyo is under the sea, it revolves around the story of Ganta, a young boy who is blamed for the slaughter of an entire classroom of his peers. He is thus vanquished to “Deadman Wonderland”, which is not only a prison but also a tourist attraction.

If you want fresh new Anime stories. It’s highly Recommended.

It’s not what you think. Call it Superstition or Fear of the unknown.

For most Asian. Dreaming about Water and Flood. Is not a good sign. It will not bring any good luck. Be preferred, in the coming days. Observed the events that will come to your life.

First night I saw a woman in a flooded room. Next dream over flowing water coming from the window of my bed room. Next water flowing in the ceiling of my bed room. Next water flood soak the engine of the family car. Next passenger Bus sunk in the river. Last flood water enters the living room of our house.

The following events happen in sequence, in real life. We encounter 3 car accidents. People supporting my education lost their job and business. Grand mother died instantly in the hospital. Electric meter started a house fire. It burns the front end of our house. It’s like I was in a middle of a whirl wind. I feel numb after few days. I just have to steadfast. Hoping wishing everything will just return to normal. All of these events happen a year ago. Some dreams served as warning. To prefer us to such events. That will occur in the future.

Original Drawing, Hand Drawn. My geometry professor did not show up. I have a full hour to play around. Instead I decided to stay in the canteen. To take some quick snack. I sat at one of the empty table. The place is very quiet. One of those relaxing morning free from stress.

After a few moments a horse stamping walk girl arrived at the scene. She sat in the next table in front of mine. And she happens to be my crush in the 4th year class. She is too busy reading some text messages from her iPhone 4s. A lot of things are running inside my head.  This cute chick will disappear forever lest than a month from now. She will go to college and meet some basket ball star. Or may be some law student. Stupid of me to let my chance past bye.

Then I heard a voice calling my name. Hi mark. I was thinking so deep I didn’t notice her actually calling me. So I make gesture. She is whispering something. Her voice is too low I can’t hear it. May be it’s my ear, a side effect from listening to loud music through a pair of Grado headphones.

She notice something is wrong. She stood pull up her food tray. Ready to move to my table. As a gentleman I do the same thing. Pay respect to a lady. She turns left out of the table. I do the same thing. She breathe heavily. As I do. She stood like a model ready for the cat walk. Her eyes focus on mine, lock like a laser beam. Eye ball to eye ball.  No time to lose. I move forward. She does the same. I want everything to move fast. But it seems. Its one of those moment. My muscle body contract. Everything seems to be terribly slow. She smile. I acknowledge. I move in, she do the same. She is faster than me. She wants to say something very important. Before she deliver the first line. Out of nowhere one platoon of ROTC cadet steps in our way. Somebody just sucked in the beautiful moment. The situation is like a flower surrounded by poisonous torn. As I’ve said earlier she’s very popular with the boys. I did warn you in my about page welcome to drawings and misadventures of Nonoy Manga.

Above story is my inspiration to this sketch art.

Original drawing, Hand drawn my inspiration as follow.

 When was the last time you listen to a song from the heart?

In the world of modern music. populated by rock, rap, hip hop, r&b and techno pop. I accidentally bump into a cd in my uncles music collection. a 1974 album re-issue of Sergio Mendes. a Brazilian music Song writer arranger. In title “Waiting for Love”. I run the track to my Marantz cd 5400, Audiolab 8000a integrated amplifier with Epos 11 pair of speakers.

My initial feeling as if I’m diving in slow-motion  into the depth of my soul. Account of event flash right before my eyes. Moving, Lost opportunities, regret, hope. No time to think. an appeal to a repeated mistake. Haunting, sad and at the same time a feeling of contentment. It’s a breeze to ear. Something that will cultivate human emotion. A very different mood as compared to the current crop of music. A musical tune singing in the heart of a lonely naive person. I Presume These song was written at the time when human being still believe in love. It’s not for everyone but it definitely works for me. So I decided to sketch up the complex  obsolete disturbance I perceived.

My uncle once said the fire inside him is dying. Cold wind is coming. He can’t mingle anymore with the young 20 year old girls. The age gap is so huge. facial look is so obvious. Generation disparity. Public opinion, etc. But all of that crap  change  a week later.

He was invited in a swimming party one sunday afternoon. While he was resting in the couch near by the pool. He saw this 20 year old siren climbing out of a 12 feet swimming pool. She is like a bucket of high octane gasoline poured into him. and The last thing my uncle mention. The “flame” is back. Please share if you have similar adventure or misadventure.

My inspiration with these graphic art is the heroin Charlotte Ladram. in a superb thriller book by an English Author Robert Goddard. The book is a tour the force from the moment Beatrix open her first line. Up to the end. I have no option but to sketch up the Heroin. In an Anime form. To leave a lasting memory.

Book description

In her seaside cottage, Beatrix Abberley bravely confronts an intruder moments before her life is brutally taken. The crime stuns the elderly spinster’s family—especially Beatrix’s niece, Charlotte Ladram. But Charlotte has little time to mourn the loss of her beloved aunt and little patience when police quickly arrest a man Charlotte believes is innocent. For Charlotte, a harrowing quest for answers begins—one that will take her into the shadows of the past…and into the life and secrets of the dead woman’s brother, famed poet and casualty of the Spanish Civil War, Tristram Abberley.

Now, amid shattering revelations about her family, and in the aftermath of a second savage crime, Charlotte finds herself at the center of a widening storm. And for Charlotte, something extraordinary is beginning to happen. As fifty years of secrets begin to unravel, shy, cautious Charlotte is coming alive in the shadow of a mystery—uncovering a shocking tale of wartime greed and treachery, and a vendetta of violence seemingly without end….
