Usapang May-akda #1 - Dazzle them with Brilliance, Baffle them with Bullshit (AUDIO RECORDING)

Pakinggan ang aming naging talakayan noong Sabado (August 30, 2014).  Ito ang una sa series ng mga talks na tinatawag na "Usapang May-akda" na gaganapin sa Uno Morato kada-buwan. Kasama ko sa usapan bilang panauhin si Eliza Victoria habang si Adam David ang aming tagapamagitan.  

Maraming naungkat sa usapang ito:

  • si Eliza ay anak pala sa kulam! 
  • si Adam David ay hindi androgynous!
  • ako naman ay napunta sa ethics / etits

​Hehe! pero seryoso, masaya at maraming mga interesanteng bagay na natalakay dito. Heto ang mga tinanong ni Adam: 

  1.  Influences on your horror work – even non-horror influences (ie, Rizal as influence on TABI PO), even extra-literary influences (news, creepy pasta). Question on process: how do you prep for working on your work?
  2. Eliza’s very urban horror VS Merv’s very rural horror – also modern VS traditional? – care to elaborate on the whys and wherefores of the two? Why choose one over the other? Question on subject: why do you write about what you write about?
  3. The human body as site for potential acts of horror, rendered to it and rendered by it – body horror: the sexual implications of, the sexual assault subtext of, the sadomasochist dimensions of, the horrific act as release of sexual energy – consumption (TABI PO) and possession (DWELLERS) as an unwilling owning of another’s body, as objectification of the body, as rape. Still a question on subject: why do you write about what you write about?
  4. Talk about upcoming work! Solo projects, collaborations.

Sana ay maaliw at may matutunan kayo! Enjoy! 
Heto po pala ang post ni Binibining Eliza tungkol dito.
