short change

you know you've changed when you consciously stop yourself from automatically pouring that sachet of salt on your fries considering first that there's an off chance that she will eat some of your fries after you've offered them to her, just because you know that she dislikes salt in her fries.

i love twilight

every night before i go to bed i run my fingers across the spine of each book and i browse the pages that i've bookmarked and highlighted to relive each instance of edward, imagining him, his perfect body glistening as he sparkles like the stars diamonds.

kahit na di ko pa man lubusang nakikila ang isang tao pero nalaman ko na nag-elbi sya, oks na sya sa akin, automatic. ewan ko... iba talga kasi yung dating ng taong na-expose sa elbi life.

medyo biased din ako pag nalaman ko na pisay ang isang tao. pero di kasing biased pag nalaman ko na elbi sya.

pero pag nag-pisay na sya tas nag elbi pa... ahh, wala na. aprub na yun men!

lagot na pag narinig mo syang nagsabi ng, "e anong balak mo ngayon?" wala ka nang lusot men. kaya wag ka nang magugulat kung maya-maya pa'y maririnig mo na ang the dreaded four letter word na "fine." patay kang bata ka.

this post from dacs got me thinking about my texting etiquette. der was a tym dat i also txtd lyk dis. and for the life of me i don't know what i was thinking then. but i've reverted to texting in the "unappropriate" way which is no shortcuts and as much as possible proper capitalization (which i rarely follow. hehe.) and punctuantion after realizing that texting that way is plain ugly.


similar to fingerprints one could distinguish who he's texting with depending on thier text habits. as such i thought of my habits,
  • almost no short-cut words
  • short-cut words repertoire: beri, gud, nyt.
  • capitalized first word of each sentence
  • presence of, gasp! what's this?, punctuations.
  • uncapitalized expressions (haha, hehe, hihi, umm, ahh, nyak)
  • smileys galore Ü
  • no spaces between punctuations and capitalized umlaut smileys

shake tayo

kani-kanina lang,

kgirl-opismeyt: shake tayo.
rgirl-opismeyt: shake? ... sige!
kgirl-opismeyt: anong flavor?

sa isip ko lang nagshe-shake as in nagke-kembutan na sila. hehe. :P


ces: cr tayo.
luz: mahirap maging cr.
ako: CR! (sabay taas ng dalawang kamay sa ibabaw ng ulo para mag-mukhang "cr")
ces: *natawa*

sa wakas nakuha na rin ni ces kung bakit ganun yung "sagot" ni luz pag ganun yung pagyaya nya. apparently isa na naman tong eccentricity ng mga pisay-ers. hehe. (sa 98 lang ba 'to?)

touch move

it is not us men who make the first move. it's the women with their subtle signs, hair flipping, ear touching, subconscious pelvis thrusting, eye contact with smiles, who actually make the "first" move. so men next time you pass up on throwing that girl your ace-in-the-hole pick-up line don't blame it on yourself because you're an awkward blunder, let's just say that its your discreet way of saying you're not interested.

robot test

01. a robot may not injure a human being or, through inaction, allow a human being to come to harm.
02. a robot must obey orders given to it by human beings, except where such orders would conflict with the first law.
03. a robot must protect its own existence as long as such protection does not conflict with the first or second law.

if you abide by the above three laws, then by golly gee wilikers, i smell robot.

celebrity sightings are now again a rarity since i got out of gma. (there was this one time that i was stuck (wish ko lang stuck talaga. hehe.) with iza calzado in the elevator. she was pretty as hell in a deep purple flowing strapless gown. i think she was going to the premiere of batanes then.) but last month i unexpextedly started seeing celebrities (A, B, and C listers) out of nowhere.

plinky recto - saw her coming out of sm makati with two straight out of filipino movies goons.

mike villegas
- saw him at sango (master burger please! yum! i love that they're showing japanese shows. and it was only there that i found out that hiki has a new album, which up to this time i can't find a copy of. *sigh*) after band practice. actually his brother was also there and i didn't noticed him until jem pointed him out. power! (saturday of the same week they played as sessionists for aisa in eat bulaga.)

wendy valdez - she was one of the presentors for the first placer in the recent first ever philippine tekken tournament. wanted to have a picture with her but decided last minute to not to because i didn't want to look like a midget beside her. (she was wearing a 4 inch wedge shoe. rar)

carlos tañada - bassist of up dharma down, saw him in mcdo greenbelt while waiting for the band selling a low quality guitar effect per jem bunao. (he's not nathan. hehe.)

charles christianson - saw him in trinoma's food choices along with her non-showbiz gf. chikka! don't know him? he's ted, the band manager of the love team in tv5's rakista. he was one of the finalist in abs cbn's star circle quest 2. erich gonzales and paw dizon were his batchmates in the said star reality search. still, don't know him? well, i'm not surprised. hehe.

iwa moto - spotted her in an escalator of trinoma as i was going up to timezone. actually what i noticed first was her legs (uy legs!), then his boyfriend's tattooed biceps, then iwa's face. it was nice seeing her outside of gma.

i started work today. whoopee! :D


i will most likely receive my salary at the end of the month instead of the 15th because of missing pertinent documents. unless, of course that by some sort of miracle my sss id suddenly lands on my lap and if i'd be able to apply for and get a hold of a tin or lto id by tomorrow afternoon and submit them all to our hr, maybe then i'd be financially positive by next week. but yeah, whatever... (yaya, you're such a loser. loser.)


no access to multiply here in the office. so to the legions and legions of my fans out there waiting for just a trickle of my ever profoundness, tough luck. hehe. i'll probably update my multiply during the weekends or whenever.

(or will cross posting from blogger to multiply work?)


zaibatsu is not blocked. yeababy!


updated my blog roll.

inside joke

guys, what's hada?


relapses can break your heart in more than one way.


to hell with honesty, just say "no" when THE question is asked.


jem might be the living embodiment, albeit a toned down version of howard wolowitz minus the allergic reaction to peanuts.


there's a thin line between being not friends and being just friends and being more than friends. and i believe that it's rather difficult, close to impossible even, to move from one car to the next once you've established a seat in this relationship train.


i'm surrounded with friends that know the value of money but don't measure anyones success with how fat their paychecks are.

coffee black and egg white

i think i've mentioned once that i'm colorblind. well yesterday i had my eyes checked and guess what, i really am colorblind. good news is that it can be corrected. bad news is that i have to wear colored glasses for at least a year. nyar.

ilan ba dapat ang allowable heartbreaks na dulot ng isang tao?

tournament start

as some of you may know, the first ever national tekken 6 tournament was held today and i had a blast, tekken fan boy that i am, watching all those quality matches.

the set up:

  • 4 tekken 6 machines
  • machines 1 and 4 are connected to the big screen which can play both matches simultaenously
  • booming t6 sounds from speakers (first time that i actually heard t6 soundtrack. i liked the jungle stage bgm)
  • matches consists of best of 5 rounds
  • players are "randomly" assigned to machines 1 to 4 via the colored chip they got from the fish bowl
the players:

players 1 to 8

players 9 to 16

players 17 to 24

players 25 to 32

first round highlights:
  • players must win 2 matches to advance to the next round
  • the emergence of STRONG (jail - marduk) as the crowd favorite
  • top seed players dropping out, mawts - nina, happy - jin
  • highest ranked player (raijin?), lim yun soo - lei, in the tournament surprised no one when he advanced to the next round

top 16 players (abooooot peys!)

second round highligts:
  • players must win 3 matches to advance to the next round
  • strong makes it to the next round
  • cris(???) - kazuya almost did a lazarus on LYS when he came back from a 4-0 deficit, tying the series to 4-4 but alas came short when he failed to clinch the 5th and final round of the match

the top 8

third round highlights:
  • players must win 5 matches to advance to the next round
  • fufu - devil jin eliminates clan mate and crowd fave STRONG
  • LYS sweeps (d/b+4) this round

the final four
from left to right: paulo jugo (devil jin), lim yun soo (lei), daniel xavier chua (xiayou), carlo manuel racela (bob)

semi-finals highlights:
  • players must win 7 matches to advance to the next round
  • losing players will play against each other for 3rd place
  • winning players will play against each other for 1st place
  • fufu - djin vs pms - bob
  • dacs - xiayou vs h+s - lei
  • crowd cheered for every round that dacs won
  • first four matches of dacs vs LYS was close, but LYS slowly pulled away the following matches

the finals

finals highlights:
  • 5 matches to win the title of the first ever philippine tekken champion
  • crowd intently watching the pinas vs korea match (hehe)
  • crowd cheered for every round that bob won
and the winner is...

LYS taking home the bacon with the timezone big wigs and yes, the infamous wendy valdez

  • sorry for the blurry pictures.
  • i hope they organize another tournament next year.
  • LYS and PMS will be representing the philippines in the international competition
  • mark your calendars: december 13, 2008 the day of the international competition that will be held at the trinoma lobby.
  • they will be playing against new zealand, singapore and australia's champion. and whoever wins there will be playing against a player from japan.
  • someone might be bringing in T6:BR for play testing. *crosses fingers*
  • thanks to all the sponsors especially to timezone!


last saturday while we were talking about jem's latest exploits i happen to remember this acronym that very much suits the discussion that was going on then. the acronym was GUD although i can't remember the meaning of it then. ehe.

good thing i mentioned it on one of my posts.

GUD - geographically undesirable date

to paint an accurate picture let me site an example.

01 let say you're from laguna and the girl you're dating is from sucat, well since sucat is strill on the way to laguna she is not a GUD.

02 let say you're from cavite and the girl you're dating is from bulacan, well since bulacan is in no way remotely close to cavite she is a GUD.

this concludes our lesson for today. come back next time when we discuss the meaning of BV pare.

attack of the randomness

hey, whatup up, science bitches?


i'm prone to blurt out random questions when i'm sleep deprived. like a while ago when jem, tseri and i were in the middle of talking about their helplessness during bus rides over some DQ, i suddenly ask jem an out-of-the-blue question,

ako: nagka-girlfriend ka na ba?

so jem's apprehension to answer the question wasn't really a surprise because it came out of nowhere. (and it wasn't a surprise because jem is always aprehensive and somewhat dodgy with this type of questions.) so i go and ask tseri instead. (kasi mas madaling kausap si tseri. hehe.) after tseri's answer i go and ask her the follow up question,

ako: nakapag-holding hands ka na ba sa mall?

so next time when i start asking weird question don't be startled it's just my brain trying to compensate from the insomia attack the previous night. gomen.


wouldn't it be fun to witness a candid videoke session of professional singers?


long bus rides = long time to think
longer bus rides = longer time to think


and because i was only able to catch the first twenty second preview of this, ayan,

too bad i can't find a videoke version of this song along with the original video. hehe.

i lol'd.




ipasa mo na yung juno ko men!!!


a classic sign that a friend is already drunk is when you ask them if he's drunk and tells you off that he's not drunk.

(ikaw: pare, lasing ka na? sya: lashing? sinong lashing? di ako lashing a.)


a sign that you're getting old is when you like myx's backtrax or mtv classic.

(meron pa bang mtv classic?)


besides men wearing white pants and plain white jackets, worn separately or in combination with, a sure sign that he is gay is when the wallpaper of his phone is a picture of himself.


oh, this one too.

somewhat good news

chivalry is not dead. in fact it still prevails nowadays. although it has mutated into something else. presenting the evolved version of chivalry, selective chivalry, which is most rampant when riding the mrt. so good news to pa-next girls and good luck to the others.

UPDATE: memory gap. gah.

sinong nagsabi na november 3 pa ang labas ng eraserheads reunion concert album? hehe.






sensya na sa glare ha. na-excite ako e. hehe.

cooler version of weezer's pink triangle, imo.


2:20 - 2:50 : LOLZER


ipapanalangin ko na lang...


syempre lahat naman tayo alam na ang ibig sabihin ng HHWW. pero alam nyo ba ang ibig sabihin ng MOMOL?

use MOMOL in a sentence:
pare pa-next girls are great to have MOMOL with.


napulot ko nga pala to sa rakista. yung show sa channel 5.

ang mga kabataan nga naman ngayon, mapupusok! hehe.

ultimate satisfaction hug

1. find a victim. (friends are best suited targets for this exercise)

2. move in on target and approach with your right/left arm higher than your left/right arm streched. (this maneuver is highly recommended if the huggee and the hugger are of about the same or equal height)

3. place higher arm somewhere between target's nape and shoulder and other arm somewhere below other arm, preferably somewhere at the back of target's waist.

4. target now should instinctively mimic you.

5. hug away. give target a warm squeeze. but mind you not too tight. (rubbing and back patting optional)

6. linger.

7. un-hug. walk away and smile. :)


an indication that a conversation went sour is when both parties end the actual conversation with the statement "fine."

celebrity players

i caught this chika minute feature on ely a while ago when i was watching the news. he was spotted on cinemanila's opening along with marcus and i think jerome velasco, also a previous bandmate from the mongols. nothing news worthy about the bit. same old thing. he's fine now and will be giging with pupil by next week. and yes, still nothing on another eraserheads reunion concert.

after the screening ely and jerome played tekken 6 at timezone. yeboi! he was using law. masher. hehe. although it was cool to see him play.


i should be a carrier of the-i-don't-care-what-happens-to-angel-locsin's-career-virus after that very short stint working for gma but alas after reading this article on maxim's may 2008 issue, and i quote,

"MAXIM: since you're a homebody, do you play a lot of videogames?
ANGEL: i used to play a lot before. usually i just play TEKKEN a lot. I was so addicted to it."

i think that i love her even more. hehe.


back in college when we were still addicted to TTT there was this rumor circulating that tom taus (oo, si cedie, ang munting prinsipe) was the champion of a tournament that was held in greenhills. if my memory serves me right his character was yoshi and bruce. (yeah celsus mode.) (tama ba ang pagkaalala ko niks?)


it was about the same time last year when i first watched love actually on oliver's huge huge plasma(?) screen. (was it last year or last last year? memory fail.) and i saw it again yesterday while i was trying to overcome procrastinating if when should i leave tseri's place. (tseri forgot to text you yesterday. anyhu, thanks my dear!Ü) this movie is quite long but such a joy to watch, how each character is somehow connected with each other and how love actually unravels for everyone as the story progresses. (think go's romantic comedy counterpart)

i especially liked prime minister david and chubby natalie's bit. but i'm biased because i crush you lovely natalie. right.

so which love story did you actually liked?

i want


added to cart. check!

Tuesday, October 14, 2008

time is on my side... yes it is!

it's official. the console version for tekken 6 will be released fall of next year. this might be bad news to others but it's all good to me. at least i still have time to save for a ps3. hmmm... or should i get an xbox 360 instead?

Sunday, October 12, 2008


what is it? well according to ron burgundy and friends...



i especially enjoyed the dvd commentaries. hahaha!


in a span of a day i bet that you get tons of ideas. but how many of these ideas do you actually share with other people? i know it might not be the most original of ideas or it could be trivial maybe bordering stupid, but who knows, it may burn the brain cells of the people you share your ideas with, but maybe it could inspire them to think outside the box. so next time you get an idea let others experience that light bulb moment.


light bulb moment

1. i think barney of how i met your mother is loosely based and is in fact the censored version of NPH which is played by who else, neil patrick harris in harold & kumar go to white castle and harold & kumar escape guantanamo bay.

2. makati is like pisay. during weekdays it's so busy but during the weekends it feels like a ghost town. (agree dormers?)

3. stating that things are not awkward will most likely make this more awkward.


actually the first part of this post is just an excuse for me to throw those 3 random ideas at you. hehe.

halu-halo ngayong taglamig

galing akong makati kahapon. kaya madami na naman akong naiisip na kung anu-anu-ano.


inaayos yung foodcourt ng landmark at yung food choices sa g4. para siguro mas maaliwas ngayong pasko yung mga kainan.


ang pinakamalapit na kfc sa glorietta area ay yung nandun sa may mrt station. (di tuloy ako nakakain ng chicken steak. tinamad na kasi akong pumunta dun e. rar. di bale sa friday na lang.)


bakit mas mahal ng tatlong piso yung tuna pie ng jollibee sa may foodcourt ng landmark? tas 8 minutes pa bago pa maluto? wag na uy.


phei nakita ko si judah paolo na pakalat-kalat sa goldcrest. naisip ko tuloy na paolo si paolo dahil kay judah. hehe.


sanay pa rin akong umakyat ng 47 floors. mas madalas nga lang mag pop yung tenga ko.


nalaman kung pumanaw yung dating kong opismeyt. di naman kami close. pero sa pagkakakilala ko sa kanya masayahing tao sya. parang laging nakangiti. at nakakalungkot isipin na sobrang bata pa nyang namatay.

kaya dapat walang aksayahin na panahon!


alam mo ba kung anong gamot sa lss? pakinggan mo yung lss song mo.

(yun nga lang baka lalo ka lang malulong sa kantang yun. parang kung anong nangyayari sa akin ngayon. si utol kasi kung anu-ano pinapakinig sa akin. r&b pa. meh.)


di ako makadecide kung ayos ba tong kantang to o hindi. pop na the white stripes. hehe.


sabi sayo jem abrosia kumanta ng i just can't let go e. ayaw maniwala.


napapatunganga pa rin ako pag si hwoarang ang kalaban ko sa arcade. huhu.


o yan lang muna. naubusan na ko e. hehe.

dig david dig

i have to dig a hole. a big one. i have to do it now.

i searched for a tool that can help me dig. i think i see a spade from afar. i excitedly ran to it, letting the mud splatter on my bare legs.

it's a spade indeed! i run back to where i'm supposed to dig.

even though it's the first time that i was using a spade, without hesitation, i used it to dig. it was very much bothersome at first. but i got the hang of using the spade. (apparently it was much much easier if i used my foot to drive the spade into the slushy earth rather than just using my arms.)

i wasn't expecting it, but i was enjoying myself. the rain on my back didn't disturbed me, instead it cooled me. i was in shin deep mud, but it's mucky composition let me dug easier. the spade was the key to my digging. all was going well, at this rate i'd be finish in no time.

but the spade fell apart. stunned i stared at the broken spade, disappointed. i still got a lot of digging to do, three more feet. but the spade gave up on me.

i examined the spade, hoping that i would be able to put it back. then i discovered that i was the one at fault why it fell apart. in my excitement i didn't notice that it was old and brittle. i wasn't aware of the force with which i was using it. i'm the sole reason why i can't use it now.

but... i still need to dig a hole.

i survey the amount of work that still needs to be done. i smile.

i grin at the fact that without the spade i would've been dirtier, i beam at the fact that without the spade i'd probably spend double the amount of time digging what i've already dug, i grin at the fact that without the spade i wouldn't have been as motivated as i am now to dig. i smile and i am happy.

i start to dig with my bare hands.

"sorry my song, i still haven't found a home for you."

may namimiss akong ka-chat...

the red box experience

it's been a long time since i had the chance to sing with my friends in red box. (last time that i did was 2004? blame it on red box queen bee faye who left us all to do her singing down undah.) so it was a surprise when jon wanted to go bidjoke with us, because apparently he has never had a videoke session with us outside his house.

i'll stop here and let the video do the talking.


all low tech editing done on my phone. kaching!

i haven't personally watched the video online because smart bro sucks. so you must forgive me if it's a fail. hehe.


ako: sya! kamusta?
sya: oi long time! ayus naman ako. ikaw?
ako: eto, ayus din. nagpapataba.
sya: pansin ko nga. ilang buwan na ba yan?
ako: haha! sobra ka naman.
sya: hahaha.
ako: di ka pa rin nagbago.
sya: ...
ako: busy ka ba ngayon? wanna have coffee?

i'm excited with what tomorrow has in store for me.

september memory replay

our hands clasped, fingers intertwined
your tenderness bore through my palm
everything felt right on that very second
how i cherished that sleep deprived moment

reclined as the first rays greeted us
i saw you, half-awake, half-asleep
a dream of fine sand, coral blue waters and you,
alone and away from it all, where only fishes can see

but the inevitable tomorrow came
roads and words separated us
i was forever caught in that instant
and i replay it in perpetuity

kung anu-anu-ano

may gitarista ba na tone deaf? kung wala... e di lahat ng gitarista kayang kumanta.


napansin ko sa project runway philippines pag tinatawag ng mga judges si jaz "she" ang gamit nila. pero kung yung ibang contestants, tulad ni philip or ni aries, "he" ang gamit ng mga judges.


mtv's that i'd rather watch with the volume muted...

mariah carey's touch my body
shakira and beyonce's beautiful liar
pussy cat doll's when i grow up


dapat siguro pakainin muna si willie ng tanghalian bago sya maghost ng wowowee para di nya kinakain yung mga salita nya.


may ulcer na ang ref ko.

naiinis ako sa mga taong...

1. di marunong gumamit ng pedestrian lane/overpass

2. tumatawid habang naka-go pa ang mga sasakyan

3. di marunong umayos ng upo sa bus/jeep/fx

4. ayaw i-abot ang pamasahe sa driver sa bus/jeep/fx

5. di marunong pumila


ikaw, sinong mga tao ang kinaiinisan mo?

you know how i know you're gay?

i caught this music video of hale a couple of weeks ago. man, it sounds like keane. and i like keane. (yeah, i'm gay that way. gayness factor of keane almost equal to coldplay's.) should i start liking hale? hmmm... maybe for just this one song.


let's gay it up some more...


now time to find me a ford focus and put a rainbow bumper sticker on it that says, "i love it when balls are in my face." and oh, i do love asia. hehe.


i was browsing some social network site a while ago and i saw something that triggered me to want to read this post made by my friend. so i went on his site and tried to search for that entry. i couldn't find it, although i did come across some other interesting posts.

one of them is this. i found myself really amused that he actually stayed with that "girl who had no long term potential" for four years. and the fact that the only one who left a comment there was our friend who we "abandoned" to start his relationship with "the girl." and oh, they had their anniversary last august. congrats pare!


i find it very peculiar that i'm having these crazy cravings for the past week or so. about three days ago, i think a little before midnight, i wanted to eat palabok. i was on the verge of lifting my lazy ass off the couch to go out grab a fiesta delight but it was raining then so i opted to satisfy my craving the next day. and just last night i was dreaming of queso real ice cream which, to this day is still a dream. and i'm still longing for the isaw for about a week now. grrr. and chocolate sponge cake. wait a minute... i think i was lusting for that almost three months ago. wah?


while we're on the subject of food, here's a list of my friends and their fave food. (screw you screwy memory for letting this random thought pop up every meal time.)

oli: lumpia

jae: maja blanca sans rival

jem: lumpiang toge

jon: hinog na mangga

tseri: baby back ribs

faye: sweet and sour pork

lex: gulay

cel: tokwa

jessa: cheese... not

po: chinese chorizo

puto maya

nainggit ako dito e, kaya ako rin...


by avoiding the question you

a. successfully change the tide of the conversation

b. prolong the agony of telling the truth

c. get to ignore the same question again next time

d. i don't know the answer e

e. question? what question?

Saturday, September 13, 2008


01. pay debts
02. braces
03. gym
04. fix part of the house
05. driving lessons
06. swimming lessons
07. laptop
08. electric guitar
09. ps3
10. japanese lessons


tseri kaya natin to!


sya: ayoko ng ganito.
ako: ha?
sya: hanggang ngayon wala pa rin tayong gelpren.
ako: ahhh...
sya: kailan nga kaya tayo magiging uso?
ako: yaan mo pare, balang araw magiging uso din tayong mga pogi.

separate lives

i try to keep my blogging life separate with my real life. so much so that i rarely repeat what i've written down here when i talk with my friends. (well except when i'm talking about juno or sideways or music.) there's no particular reason that i do, it's just that i want this blog to be an avenue for me to express thoughts that i can't just blurt out there. so most of the time what you may read here will be totally random and weird. so don't take it too seriously. just read with an open mind and hopefully leave with something new to think about.

and now that we have that out of the way... let's sing!

you have no right... to ask me how i feel...
you have no right... to speak to me so kind...

(of course this is the point of this entry.)

insider tips

i am stubborn. if you tell me to do something, most of the time i will do the complete opposite. the only time that i can think of that i will probably follow someone's suggestion or advice is when i believe that i came up with that idea first, thus in effect you are just reinforcing an original thought that was initially there already. so if you really want me to do something there are only two things to keep in mind,

1. don't tell me what to do or tell me to do the exact opposite of what you want me to do
2. find a way to let me think that what you want me to do is my idea in the first place

update: o yeah, did i mention that all men think this way?

Thursday, September 04, 2008

i know i've been a flake for the last couple of months. but still all of my friends were there for me. thanks friends, you know who you are.

not again

(let me have the liberty to skip the part of this rotten day when my venture through the halls of sss and long long borefest lines was unfruitful due to inconsistent and unacceptable documents. argh.)

i arrived home at around 6pm and decided to finish that week old half empty soju over some sideways (for the nth time), with the giamatti and church commentaries on, to releived me of the stress that was built up during the day. waw! have i told you that i adore this movie? it's very apparent that these guys have real chemistry off and on screen. they often laugh at each others comments and feed off on each other. and man, are these bastards are really eloquent, mainly church. i especially liked it when they were commenting on giamatti's oscar nomination performance, the one where miles(giamatti) was out on the porch with maya(madsen) sharing their passion for wine sparking the moment but ultimately was put out by miles' hesitation. yeah, great miles, just great. back to the commentaries, the duo also shared a lot of movie tidbits, like how miles only wears blue shirts except on two scenes in the entire movie and about the various art that was hanging on the set. but i've spoiled you enough so go ahead and watch this movie. (but i recommend you on watching the movie first without the commentaries. hehe.)

and yeah, stress level was gone when the movie was finished. (and yeah, it also helped that mr. battlecruiser yamato chimed in once in a while relaying that i received a transmittion.)

old school

i will not download any songs from this day forward. instead when i want to listen to a particular song i'll go and buy the cd and then listen to it.

i can do this. i've been successful in this endeavor why not this.

(crap! must rush to the nearest comic alley stores and stock up on those l'arc en ciel cds.)

Monday, August 18, 2008


yesterday i bought another copy of juno. the dibidi had better picture quality compared to my previous copy and the bundle had a-tad-smaller-than-a-bond-paper-sized poster to boot. of course i watched the movie again and the deleted scenes with and without the commentaries from jason reitman and diablo cody(highest coolness name factor ever). and now i like it even more.

so now i' m giving away my other copy of juno to:

1. anyone who doesn't have a problem with piracy
2. a juno virgin
3. will give it again to someone with the above qualities once he/she is finished watching the film

i'm spreading the juno love.

i'll do this too with sideways and little miss sunshine once i get a hand on "better" copies of the movie. hmmm... and maybe smart people too. maybe.

Wednesday, August 13, 2008

no such thing

rory of gilmore girls. sam of garden state. juno of juno. what do these girls have in common besides that they're pretty smart, pretty witty, pretty cool, pretty pretty and not to mention have pretty good taste in music? they are all fictitious beings and will never ever exist in reality.

yeah, prove me wrong.

UPDATE: two words. natalie portman.

it feels like another break-up all over again...

on the bright side: self-imposed no dating co-workers rule is no longer in effect.

on the not so bright side: soon to be a member of yearly initiation of newbies as christmas presentors, yet again. *sigh*

hmmm... maybe i should make a career out of that.

back at you

i caught mr. & mrs. smith on free tv last weekend. i have to say that i was quite entertained. though it got me thinking, what the hell happened to doug liman between this film, the bourne series and then he going out to make jumper?


i think it's kind of ironic and funny that vince vaughn was in this film as john smith's (pitt) close associate.


it's also cool that i tank is wearing a fight club shirt when he was being interrogated by the smiths.


props to angelina jolie for always looking gorgeous.

public service

x: like jumper the story was all over the place; christensen & jackson; lame action sequences
#: the idea
*: david's pad


don't watch this... please.


american gangster
x: too long; i would've enjoyed the movie more if there were more washington and crowe interactions
#: the ruthlessness of frank as a businessman; good performance from washington and crowe
*: frank collecting his money in the street with a jar



x: quite slow start; the main villain; the general, feels like a caricature, the cheeeesy lines
#: the action was unrelenting when it started; explosions; assorted body parts flying
*: rambo behind the gun



x: the intro (first 30 seconds of the film); stupid characters; camera work
#: casting unknown people make this film feel more "real"; the monster; camera work
*: the subway



martian child
x: dennis (coleman) is unappealing; continuity; bordering boring
#: the colors, the few cusack and peet scenes
*: night car scene



the assassination of jesse james by the coward robert ford

x: long, dragging and boring
#: the last 20 minutes of the movie; affleck in the last act
*: narration on the day before jesse james died


it's interesting, at least for me, to learn that i was born on the day that jesse james died.


the bucket list

x: i wished they have a longer list with more interesting things to do
#: freeman and nicholson on screen rapore; glad that sean hayes (jack in will & grace) is not gay; slimy edward cole
*: atop the pyramids

i love talikodgenic girls... as long as they're not facing me.


i once said that chivalry is dead. true. but a new chivalry is now emerging. and it is most prevalent in public transportaion, i.e. the mrt. i dub this new animal selective chivalry.


i bet you most of the talikodgenic girls prowling the metro are victims of the selective chivalry beast.

movie weekend

watched four movies during the weekend. after each movie i wrote down things that i liked(#), things that i didn't(x), and what to look forward to(*) about each movie. here are my thoughts, (mind you these are only first impressions)

x: the cg characters are soulless
#: excellent rendering; malkovich and hopkins; fantastic action sequences (the one with the sea monsters remind me of god of war. rar!)
*: angelina jolie



x: there's about a total of 15 minutes of drag time; there's this line that cee (keira knightley) throws out that i felt was overused
#: the consistency of the characters; broiny, all of her; good story, great story telling
*: single shot(?) in the beach



3:10 to yuma
x: luke wilson as a cowboy? meh.; dragggggggging; the twist (in ben wade(russell crowe))
#: charlie played by ben foster; ben wade's quick draw shooting; character development
*: 3:00



x: might leave an impression that teenage pregnancy is cool
#: the smart dialogue; excellent soundtrack; wonderful story; ellen page as juno (i love you juno! call me when you turn 18.)
*: the last scene


this is my new favorite next to sideways and little miss sunshine. go watch this!
