Wow! What a prolific book blogger you are. I have to find the time to read through this. Looks like I’m going to learn a lot from your blog.
Discovered your blog through Ihop’s. You’re a terrific writer and reader. Loved reading your posts.
I guess your audience isn’t so imaginary anymore.:)
Hi, Ms. Honey! Thanks for the complement. Discovered your blog from Ihop’s. I also had a great time reading the posts at Coffeespoons too. :)
Hello UP Miagao ka rin? chanced upon this blog while reading Mr. Recabar’s entries. :)
Yes, I shifted to UPV’s literature program this semester. Thanks for dropping by.
karlo..zizek is gonna squeeeze out the sanity left in you…i can recommend youssef ziedan , the arab Eco to be used as a sanity napkin…Evelio Rossero’s THE ARMIES can be used to cleanse the last droplets that drip down after the loin-shake…
karlo…take care to fend off mistaken readings…
Hi Karlo, quite unexpectedly I found you. Very impressed by your site. Quite some substance and great style. Will read more. Thanks.
You are always welcome, John Matthew. I have the same thing to say about your own site. I loved that bit onthe last communist. Will definitely read the rest. Thanks too.
very nice blog. keep it up, bro! :-)
all the best Karlo, i enjoy your blog utterly…
I enjoy your blog very much, and I’m planning to link to it from my site, http://www.thomasapolis.com , if that is okay.
karlo, regarding that issue of busay where you proposed to include the essay “on the very fine art of critiquing”, have you already run it? If not yet, would it be possible if I edit some parts of it? I realized I cannot go on burning bridges. I’ll retain the tone, but I think of deleting some information that can be identifiable to some people directly involved.
please email me here for your response as I do not regularly check blog notifications: firstname.lastname@example.org
You’re welcome, Sir. We haven’t submitted the Busay manuscript yet. We discussed the matter with Sir Talledo and we’ve decided on a few changes in the original plan. We’ll be postponing the publication of your essay to the next issues. We’ll be writing a feature and publish it side by side with your own review. The planned article, rather than replicating your formal review of the films, will proceed to read them (basing on your less than positive appraisal) in a more sociological vein as symptomatic of the state of cultural production in UPV.
Thank you very much for the support, Sir.

Thanks for dropping by. No problem.
Karlo, I was wondering if you could take a look at a piece I recently wrote here -http://eilifverneyelliott.com/2014/01/08/the-white-working-class/ I am getting responses.
Sure. Will read and comment in the next few days.
Hello po. Gusto ko po sana mag ask if ano po ang iyong mga plans this coming May 1, Labor Day? We are assigned to make a documentary on labor day movement and I know na active po kayo. Hopefully, we could also join in. Thanks
You are always welcome, Louie Marie. People’s organizations of workers, peasants, women, youth, and other sectors will be holding big protest actions on Labor Day. And please check your email. Thanks!
Was searching some statistics on PH’s income inequality and happen to come across this blog. I enjoyed reading “The Real State of the Nation” and although it was in 2012, it’s still very fitting at present. Browsed through the other posts and *gasps* …I am bookmarking this page.
Thank you very much! Indeed, things only got worse. You can check out ibon.org for updated facts and figures by the way. :)
You were UPVCC SC chairperson in 2006, taking management, according to this https://www.facebook.com/upcebutugani/photos/a.1350665554959316.1073741863.565341306825082/1350799951612543/?type=3&theater

Hi, Ritz. I am both persons. I took up a Management course in Cebu but transferred to the Literature program in Iloilo in my 4th year. My Management units were credited and hence graduated with a B.A. on literature and Management.
