Courtroom suicide caught on camera

Every times I hear of someone committing suicide, I think about what else a person can do if they feel like their life has ended and nobody cares.
I think that if one is in the depths of despair you need to take care of yourself, whether it’s a bottle of Coke, your favorite ice cream, or a trip out of town. A nap helps a lot. A bubble a bath (not Whitney Houston style, RIP). A retreat? Or buy yourself a present. Talk to a friend. Go to church. Get a massage. See a doctor. Check in at the hospital. Anything but suicide.
But for Michael Marin—convicted arsonist who burned his house because he couldn’t pay his mortgage—it appears he just wanted out the minute he was served a guilty verdict in court.
Watch as he seems to slip some poison into his system and dies in this video.

How to tell if your patient will die

This celebrity death watch ongoing on Twitter has made me recall this YouTube video titled, “The Best Way To Tell If Your Patient Will Die.”
Sometimes when I lay down in bed at night, I google weird stuff as I try to lull myself to sleep.
One thing leads to another, and I found this video which might be helpful to those watching over a loved one in the hospital.
It always helps to know when it’s time to call others to come over and keep vigil.

Not your regular ‘aswang’ movie

These days I can’t help but look if a picture is photoshopped or a movie is computerized.
Of course one prefers to watch a movie shot on location. Then again we had no idea Philippine movies could do this:

TIKTIK:The Aswang Chronicles is the first feature-length Filipino movie entirely shot on green screen.
Only the houses and vehicles are real. All the backgrounds, including trees, mountains and creatures were laboriously and painstakingly realized using the latest computer technology.

TIKTIK:The Aswang Chronicles honors the genre’s traditions without taking itself too seriously as it combines honest-to-goodness scares with irreverent Pinoy wit and humor.
Directed by Erik Matti, it stars Dingdong Dantes, Joey Marquez, Janice de Belen, Lovi Poe, and Ramon Bautista, as an odd mix of characters who suddenly find themselves the target of a vicious, deadly attack by a legion of pissed-off aswangs. As if their own strained relationships weren’t stressful enough, they now have to fight for their lives with all the heart, guts, and garlic they can muster.
Produced by Reality Entertainment, Agosto Dos, and GMA Films, TIKTIK:The Aswang Chronicles opens in theaters nationwide in October.
