They’re not box-shaped. Why call them boxers?

Wednesday, October 10th, 2007

You must have been living under a rock if you haven’t seen the latest in Hello Kitty fashion!

I actually laughed myself silly when I saw this! I know that men are forever jealous of the fashionable females. But this totally adds a whole new level to it!

Hello Kitty boxers, any one? Hahaha.
And here I am thinking that they might end up being bought by women, anyway.

My say on all this?
My man would wear Hello Kitty! :P

Oh! One more thing! I can’t wait to watch Stardust tomorrow! I hope everything would go smoothly tomorrow :D

Don’t know Stardust?

Watch the trailer!

More Kitty

Tuesday, August 7th, 2007

My sister has been quick to point out this article�wherein police officers who break rules will be forced to wear pink armbands with the Kitty’s face in it :)

The article said, and I quote:

“(Hello) Kitty is a cute icon for young girls. It’s not something macho police officers want covering their biceps.”

Hey! I beg to disagree! Hello Kitty is a macho icon :P Well, sort of. She’s the damsel in distress. And Dear Daniel is the prince charming!

Exams exams and more exams! Tralalala.

Lovely days

Wednesday, May 9th, 2007

Sorry for the long lull of no posts — did I say that right? Well, I’ve been busy trying to moderate the chatroom at mail.com — it’s crazy in there, I tell ya! And… I think I have the blogger’s block (sorta like the writer’s block but it’s related to blogging)

And since the maintenance thing, I’ve been blogging in my private blog — yey me! :)

Interestingly, I wasn’t able to post something about this last week:

This has been the talk last week.

The hex code to crack HD-DVD DRM was hacked by some guy who couldn’t play this DVD in his computer.

My take on it?

Copyrights are there for a reason — it’s to protect the intellectual property of individuals who actually use their brains to come up with stuff. Now, how many of us can actually do that.

This is the reason why I’d rather watch a movie on the big screen than buy pirated DVDs.

But then it’s becoming harder and harder to stick to that resolve since just downloading movies and songs and books are easier than actually buying them.

Me and Superbong have this business selling shirts — as some may know. And once, this acquaintance of mine sent an SMS to me regarding it — telling me that his shirt should be free, he’d be a walking advertisement. And I was all, “What the heck? Why? Are you popular enough to merit being an advertisement?”

I read a similar rant regarding this concerning artists and people who try to have them create art for them for free saying that it’s free advertising for their talents.

I know that they’re probably not the same thing, but what the heck. It certainly made sense — people with talent are not plentiful. If you don’t want to appreciate talent and pay for what it’s worth, find other talents and I’d tell you, “Good luck.”

On a lighter note:

I was depressed for the past two days, but I feel that I’m fine now.

Went to Outblaze yesterday.
Post about that to be posted tomorrow.

This would be the start of the “My Favorite” series.

I’ll start off with my bestfriend (about time, too). She’s my favorite artist. Hahaha. A little biased here, forgive me.

And this blog interview just made me soooo excited for her.

How did you and your parents feel about your filing for honorary dismissal? And do you have plans to continue your studies?

What I filed for was actually a leave of absence for one year. My dad was as up for it as I was; he always supports me, almost to a fault! My mom was hesitant even after bouts of explanation, but because newer — should I say bigger — projects kept coming my way, she finally accepted the fact that I have no plans of going back to college for a while. In fact, save for just a handful of friends, everyone else was urging me to go back to college this June 2007. But, anyway, since I’m not going back, I guess that automatically makes it an honorable dismissal.

As for my studies, I don’t think that’ll be happening anytime soon! I’ve always wanted to be a manga-ka, and it is true that many of the most successful comic illustrators are self-taught.

So, first, I would need to find a well-banced course loyal to the arts, and that would benefit me in terms of my skill improvement and job finding (isn’t this what it all boils down to?). Of course, there will always be other conditions involved, but I need some reason to go to even consider going back to university to begin with. And then, I have to weigh that reason against the time I have to spend for it, the amount of expenses that come with it, how many of my current projects I will have to drop for it, etc. And if it is all worth it, then why not? ^___^

She’s currently working on a lot of stuffs (which include working for Tokyopop, envy her).

Mourning Monday

Wednesday, April 18th, 2007

Heard the news lately?

Last Monday, 33 people (including the shooter) were killed in a shooting rampage. And now they’re all wondering why the school didn’t shut the school down after the first shooting (there was a long interval between the first and the second one). According to the authorities, they believed the first incident to be “domestic in nature.”

Who are they to decide that–they didn’t shut the school down and didn’t even try to spread the incident wide enough. If enough were
done, maybe a lot of them would still be breathing, don’t you think?

Imagine having to experience terror and desperation knowing that the gunman is nearing and is shooting at everybody in sight–with the doors barred and with no where to go. Some even jumped off windows.

Argh. I don’t want to die like that.
Though they say that dying by a gunshot doesn’t hurt that much–I wonder how he knew that.
