What is Reverse delay?
Reverse delay is a blog about Philippine films, with occasional diversions into all kinds of cultural topics: books, music, travel, social issues, etc. It was started in 2012 as a personal blog for practicing writing in general, but over the years the author gravitated towards writing film critiques.
Selected posts from this blog between September 2016 and August 2017 have been featured on Inquirer.net Opinion as part of the Philippine Daily Inquirer’s ThINQ blogger network program.
Who is the author?
DJ, a twenty-something living in Quezon City. Currently he’s studying for a graduate degree in engineering at the state university in Diliman, and, like so many bloggers who dread the ‘about’ page, has never felt comfortable writing about himself in the third person. He does it anyway because he thinks it’s the appropriate style.
He also tweets under the handle @reversedelay.
Why is the blog named Reverse delay?
A blog that starts out without a niche requires a name with a nice ring to it but which means nothing in particular. ‘Reverse delay’, which the author heard from the Taken by Cars song, This is Our City, is one such beautiful, apparently nonsensical phrase. Later, while writing this page, he discovered that it actually refers to a sound effect, popularly implemented as a guitar pedal. He thinks that’s cool.
