No Spears and Faucericking Blades

The Ranting Hatter observes the Holy Week by not throwing spears and blades to the

ooopsss.. sorry....

to the effin' people of the world.

So Manny Villar won't be stabbed for the second time yet. Paul Cayetano and Gilbert Remulla are next in line. GMA's Cabinet members will also get something from this Ranting Hatter, as well as Diz Is It and Party Pilipinas. :)

For the Holy Week until the Resurrection Sunday, the Ranting Hatter will be taking his hat off to the unwavering and steadfast characters of the world. :) We will have, if time permits, a tea party for the Congratulational Not-Birthday Party for people like Maricar Reyes, Corazon Aquino, CS Lewis, JK Rowling, and yes, Jesus Christ. :)

If time does not permit, however, we'll be cutting down the list to my Big Three. :)

see you soon. :)


The Ranting Hatter celebrates April Fools' Day with a poem from Lewis Carroll. :)
This poem was used in the critically-acclaimed Tim Burton version of Alice in Wonderland.

Ladies and Gentlemen,


'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

"Beware the Jabberwock, my son!
The jaws that bite, the claws that catch!
Beware the Jubjub bird, and shun
The frumious Bandersnatch!"

He took his vorpal sword in hand:
Long time the manxome foe he sought—
So rested he by the Tumtum tree,
And stood awhile in thought.

And as in uffish thought he stood,
The Jabberwock, with eyes of flame,
Came whiffling through the tulgey wood,
And burbled as it came!

One, two! One, two! and through and through
The vorpal blade went snicker-snack!
He left it dead, and with its head
He went galumphing back.

"And hast thou slain the Jabberwock?
Come to my arms, my beamish boy!
O frabjous day! Callooh! Callay!"
He chortled in his joy.

'Twas brillig, and the slithy toves
Did gyre and gimble in the wabe;
All mimsy were the borogoves,
And the mome raths outgrabe.

Losing Religion?

This is Ranting Hatter's reaction to the Philippine Star article of Paolo Lorenzana in the March 26 issue of Young Star. Told'ya, this Hatter would blog about anything and everything which makes anyvrithing!

Reading Lorenzana's article " Son of a Preacher Woman" made me feel like I was bamboozled big time. It felt like I was punched and grappled and bandersnatched and anghastified and (HATTER!!!!) ooops, sorry, I was angered.

I told myself, Hey, this man's tearing down the things that I believe in--- being a Born-Again Christian! He should stop this, He should work this out and denounce whatever evil he may have thrown out to the community i belong to!

Then I paused for a while and thought... He has a point! And more than that, I've had a pointless anger because looking at my personal principles, I'd say I'm not like any other Christian there is.

Lorenzana opened his article with describing what prayer is to Born-Again Christians. By keen observation, i could say he really mocked it hardcore. Then he follows by admitting that he grew up godly and was raised by his mother whom he described as "Supreme Warrior Woman of God". I felt like i was looking straight into a mirror---- and then it hit me. I think I could understand where this writer is coming from.

See, (and let me drift away a little from his article) growing up in a devout Christian family blockades one from the harmful things of the world--- the evil, mind-boggling, shattersprutting, gutwringing, flabberwhoppin' (HATTER!!!!) ooops, sorry, things of the world. Blocking, however, does not work for a lifetime. The fact is, NOBODY IS PERFECT. Even Born-Again Christians and Roman Catholics trip and stumble for sometime, and to some, everyday. Those who cannot accept it are hypocrites... BIG TIME HYPOCRITES. The truth is, we all are works in progress. No one's really ever reached the standard of being righteous and holy and superbly godly, even the Pope. (and if you hate this, I'd throw out a bible verse to you)

Lorenzana brings up his terrible experience of feeding on Scriptures and stories and movies and tv shows that support Chirstianity and almost, according to what I see from his words, kills the human nature. And so he realizes that as he grew older and older, He'd be escaping from the blockages and emerge to be the man who welcomes the "sins" of the world.

Then he throws out issues on so-called Christians.

Katy Perry had a preacher for a parent, but there she sings out it felt so right it felt so wrong. :)
Caleb Followill and Annalynne McCord of 90210 were also set as examples.

These proves that exhaustion from being told too much about what to do and what not to do can lead to stupendous amounts of destruction.

Or is it really something to blame on the teaching or the teacher?

This is Ranting Hatter's mindshaker: THE SELF IS TO BLAME, but it's a choice we all have to make, and we all have to decide.

I grew up the same... I feared sin. I feared sex. I feared getting drunk. I feared having a different point of view.

But in twenty years, I realized that life is ever changing. Similar to the Big Brother show, we all face challenges and we all make choices. We all make a stand.

I'd rather not put my own philosophy in here, But here's something to really think about:

How do you know your God? With no religion or preacher or preaching in mind, just think about what you know about Him. Your own perception will determine your act.

To me, He's forgiving. He hears prayers. And he's left only one condition- no strings attached.

Mr. Lorenzana might have failed into looking at what it means to NOT GENERALIZE. His examples do not actually relate to the countless stories of those who live up to God's standards. Those countless stories may not also determine the stories of the so-called "bad people" who might have been living off a better life as compared to the judgmental Christians. In the end, we're all different shapes of tomatoes. (why tomatoes? we could be potatoes...)

We're all mad. It just varies how mad we are and who we are crazy for. :)

And so, for his brave thinking and one-sided article, your Ranting Hatter takes his HAT OFF to Paolo Lorenzana. Just please, next time, speak out of religion--- it's one thing in the world that really does not matter. :)

Great article!

Meet the Ranting Hatter!

Johnny Depp's Mad Hatter inspired me so (or right word is too) much!

As your Ranting Hatter, I'd flash out all the responsible valuable listenable readable bookish selfish angrish fury-ish mind-boggling flabberjacking farting (HATTER!!!!) oops, sorry... RANTS.

More than just rants, this blog bamboozles the dumb, but sends a message to reflect on for those who are smart enough to give reading blogs a time. :)

He's The Last One to Know


hahahahaha! For years, i always thought that Ricky Martin was gay and that it was publicly admitted. It's funny that it's true only as of this day. :)) It's funny, i didn't know he had children. :)) boo me. :))

Kudos Ricky Martin for coming out. You give guys like us more room. At least we have one less competitor when it comes to girls' admiration. :)

On a more serious note, congratulations Ricky Martin. You did well. Had you admitted this earlier, it might have been too painful for your career. But seeing that you have none as of today, it's a good resurrection. :) a bit too early for Easter Sunday though. :))

---- the Ranting Hatter does not only rant and hate, it also likes and praises. :) I'd be throwing the next spear shortly... :D

And the First Spear Gooes To...

See, our first victim is scared of the Spear... I think an Atomic Bomb could also work!

The RANTING HATTER throws the first Ranchizzing Spear to the Effin' President of the Philippines.

She emerged as a heroine, i believe, when the Philippines ousted then-a-disgrace Joseph Ejercito Estrada. She was Vice President to the bombarded Actor-turned-President... The Filipino people had no one else to run to but her.

And so in the famous streets of EDSA, a recurrence of PEOPLE POWER threw GMA to the top position: and we all thought we are facing brighter days. It was true for some time, but there is something in becoming the President that changes an individual.

GMA turned out to be The Red Queen. She faced a lot of issues--- her lies about not running, her smelly deals, her corrupt leadership---- GMA was eternally damned to being hated not only by your RANTING HATTER, but by the nation as a whole.
Now that her ten years of reign is about to end, GMA cannot be stopped. Her Martial Law did not push through, but she, with her cabinet members, is a TACTICIAN. I have decided to believe that:
  • GMA is the main cause of the Ampatuan Massacre
  • GMA is bitchin' around as she bamboozles us into thinking that she's great
  • GMA is working things out to achieve Failure of Elections with COMELEC'S help
  • GMA has a back-up plan when Noynoy Aquino wins
  • and GMA will, one day, be assassinated BIG TIME.

Your Ranting Hatter throws the first spear directly to this Corrupt and Insensitive Leader.
May her soul find repose despite 90 million angry Filipinos stepping on her poker face EVERYDAY.

And may the prayers of haters be heard,
That GMA stops her selfish reign.
May she fear what the people could do,
to a small damn leprechaun such as herself.

The next prospect for the Ranting Hatter is someone attached to the president of the Philippines... Here's a clue. :)

(and the Class E Filipinos shall be called for in another name,
as Poverty now achieves a new meaning)

Soon. :)

the search engines directed me to Blogger when i searched for the "best blogging host"...

I wanted to write blogs and I cannot do it with Facebook notes nor tweet it in Twitter...
I could have done it in Tumblr but it's a tenrapulous corrivaking site.

So here shall rest, my words, more or less...
That rant and stab and sometimes praise...
We need to be as mad as a hatter they say,
and so let this bamboozling end as we seize the day. :)
