#SalimbalSketches: Best Picture

#SalimbalSketches returns! It's been a while since the Oscars -- guess you can tell we've all been kind of buried in work -- but for those of you planning a movie marathon over the next few days (the tail end of Holy Week is a public holiday in the Philippines) here are some tributes by Salimbal members to their favorite films of 2014… and a picture of a girl and a dog form Cristina, because when she saw "Best Picture" as our theme, she immediately thought that it simply must be an image of a cute dog with a cute girl. Never change Tina ;)

Filjoshi

"Fujoshi" is a Japanese term referring to female nerds who, let's say, are into the queerer sides of fandom. They're the girls you'll find using terms like "Sasuke x Naruto", debating BL (Boys Love) ships, and dissecting the homoerotic undertones of Dr. Who. Think they're only hiding in the dark and murky corners of Tumblr? Think again! Fujoshi are alive and well in the Philippines, and they're queering up your pop culture. There is no escape. Now meet Tintin Pantoja- Filipino, fujoshi, and rotten to the core. In other words, a true FILJOSHI.
