Ah 2007, thou hath been an enigma to me: the first three quarters were a quick, big beating. The last quarter, on the other hand, was rather interesting… which made me smile a devilish smile.




In any case, 2007 was eventful:

The January Screwjob: Walked from UST to Hi-Top Quezon Avenue. Wanna know why? Email me.

College Graduation: woohoooo!!!! the end of monotiny, the loss of the safety of routine…


Which then meant growing up and look for a job….


The Great Sabbatical: I was unemployed for 5 months and boy did it bum me out big time. Played a lot of games though. Fried under the summer sun. Lifted metal. Ugh.

My First Job: I wouldn’t have it any other way. The work environment is the envy of all. Everyone else can eat dung and die.

Gadget Overload:

Nintendo Wii


A best of a PC.

’nuff said.

And then there was….

Welcome to Bovine University.

Woohoo!!! 2008 = AWESOME.

Motion City Soundtrack

Thursday, December 27th, 2007

I’ve been listening to this band for a long time but this song really stuck to me. haha.

Let’s get effed up and die..
I’m speaking figuratively, of course..
Like the last time that I committed suicide.. social suicide..
Yeah, so I’m already dead on the inside,
But I can still pretend with my memories and photographs,
I have learned to love the lie.
I wanna know what it’s like to be awkward and innocent, not belligerent.
I wanna know how it feels to be useful and pertinent and have common sense.. yeah
Let me in, let me in to the club, cuz I wanna belong,
And I need to get strong, and if memory serves,
I’m addicted to words and they’re useless.
(In this department)
Let’s get effed up and die..
I’m riding hard on the last lines of every lie,
And the BMX bike of my life is about to explode,
I’m about to explode.
I’m a mess, I’m a wreck.
I am perfect, and I have learned to accept all my problems and short comings,
Cause I am so visceral, yet deeply inept.
I want to thank you for being a part of my forget-me-nots and marigolds..
And all the things that don’t get old..
Is it legal to do this? I surely don’t know.
It’s the only way I have learned to express myself through other peoples’ descriptions of life..
I’m afraid I’m alone and entirely useless…
(In this department)
Let’s get effed up and die.
For the last time with feeling
we’ll try not to smile
As we cover our heads and drink heavily into the nights
That still shock and surprise.
I believe that I can, overcome this and beat everything in the end
But I choose to abuse for the time being,
maybe I’ll win, but for now I’ve decided to die.
Sister soldier
You’ve been such a positive influence on my mental frame
If I could ever repay you,
I would, but I’m hard up for cash
And my memory lacks initiative.
God damn the liquor store’s closed,
we were so close to scoring
it hurts, it destroys ’til it kills..
I am tired and hungry and totally useless.
(In this department)


Heh, entering 2008 and I’m totally lost in the dark.

“kumakapa sa dilim”

What the hell I’m I doing?


I am tired and hungry and totally useless.

Well, in a few scant hours, Christmas will be upon us - the holiday that has stirred the imagination of millions of children worldwide and has lulled many people into doing good even for a few short days.

What I don’t understand is why do people, with the sudden surge of Christmasy Spirit, turn into semi-saints ready to help one and all? Why can’t they be like that the whole year round? Does Christmas spur a spirit of hypocrisy that has become so ingrained within our society?

I sincerely hope not.

I don’t want to be Sanriotown’s resident Scrooge so Happy Holidays, everyone!

P.S. You’re all sheep!

Yay or Nay List

Yay or Nay?

Top Ten

Tuesday, December 18th, 2007

“Best invention since ’sliced bread’” is probably the most abused cliche in the history of abusing and/or cliches. On my way to work, I was wondering if sliced bread is THE best invention ever. I highly think not!

10. Plumbing

Plumbing has offered human society with the kitchen sink (Thus the often used ‘…everything but the kitchen sink’. Without it, society would crumble without using this expression.), the shower, bathtubs, sewers (without sewers, what would be the use of intense cops and robbers chases?), and of course, the all-glorious toilet.


9. The Laser

Come on… lasers! t is today at the core of consumer products from CD players to laser printers. Plus, it’ll be the bread and butter of towering mechs, robots and the weapon of choice for wars of the future.

8. The LazyBoy

Need I say more?

7. The Automobile

Once cars were invented, roads were improved. Once roads were improved, cities sprouted suburbs, because people could now live in the country, yet work in the city. And thus we have become a nation of sprawl, rather than density.  Furthermore, as cars grew popular, the oil industry boomed.  Oil became a key to power and wealth–and one of the major factors for political and economic unrest in the Middle East. And here we are today. Aren’t cars fun?

6. The Phone

Hello? Is anyone home? Don’t you agree that the phone is a cornerstone of human achievement?  You do! Yay!

The ability to talk to someone from miles a way? That idea was unheard of and often desired before the entire concept of the telephone was even birthed.

Bye bye, beautiful.

5. The Lasagna

Italians rejoice! Their pride and joy (lasagna > spaghetti) of pasta has made this list! Mwahahahahaha.

The meat.

The sauce.

The al dente-ness of the pasta

Did I mention the sauce?

I just made Garfield proud.

4. The Comic Book

The X-Men, Batman, Wolverine, Spawn, Spiderman, Captain America, Iron Man…

These are just some of the most prominent names that the comic book has given birth to.

Comic books have enriched the lives and imaginations of kid, adults and the kids-at-heart.

Seeing multi-colored spandexed people fighting bad guys has never been such a beautiful sight.




3. Bumming Around

Seinfeld, NBA, Heroes, The OC, Oprah, HBO, Star Movies, My Name is Earl, Movies, Die Hard on DVD, Video Games, Laserdisc, DVD, Betamax, VHS, sitcoms, Bill Cosby, HD TV, Playstation 3, Wii, Super Mario, Yummy yummy couch, bean bags….

God Bless the man bum pioneer.

2. The Electric Guitar

Oh come one, didn’t you think that a lil’ ‘ol musician such as myself would not include something as glorious as an electric guitar would not include this list now, would you? So anyway, without this, there’d be no heavy metal, no metallica, no rage against the machine, no great nights jumping around in my underwear singing the most rockingest songs and *gasp* no Coheed & Cambria.

1. The Computer


Send In The (Krusty) Klowns

Monday, December 17th, 2007

Disturbing, right?

It doesn’t make sense, right?

Makes you question the presence of the a higher rationalism in this world, right?

Makes you ask who did his haircut, right?

Well, you must see this:

Everything just falls into place, right?


Perfect like a well-played Jengga match. 

Batman lives on!

Monday, December 17th, 2007

Batman IS the ONLY amazing thing about the DC Universe, hands down. No super-powered dweebs like Superman or Green Lantern and Wonder Woman and the travesty who is Martian Manhunter who can all fly and have super strength and run really fast. Ewww.

Batman, on the other hand, is the ONLY unique character - he doesn’t fly, he doesn’t run fast, and he relies on his wit and technique. He is the perfect anti-hero.

Imagine my joy when the FIRST Batman movie came out and Jack Nicholson blew my mind. Things went downhill from there: after Batman returns, Joel Schumacher took the franchise and flushed it down the toilet.

Things looked up with Batman Begins and my faith was restored. Now, my anticipation for the sequel, The Dark Knight, is making my world explode. I CAN’T CONTAIN IT! Things went awry when I  saw this: The original link for the trailer of the upcoming movie

Heath Ledger looks AWESOME.

Don’t mind me… I’m just gonna collect my jaw from the floor.


On Chopsticks…

Friday, December 14th, 2007


I think the thing I admire most about the Chinese is that they’re hanging in there with the chopsticks. Because, if you think about it, you know, they’ve seen the fork… by now. I’m sure they’ve seen the spoon, they’re going,

“Yeah, yeah, they’re OK… We’re going to stay with the sticks.”

I mean, I don’t know how they’ve missed it: thousands of years ago, Chinese farmer gets up, has his breakfast with the chopsticks, goes out and works all day in the field with a shovel… Hello?… Shovel! Not going out there ploughing 40 acres with a couple of pool cues, now are ya?

Wolverine speaks out

Thursday, December 13th, 2007

I know Wolverine is AWESOME and that he can probably own anyone in the Marvel Universe, but come on… the guy has feelings. He spoke out against it himself.

Well, in a way, he has acknowledged that he is the rockstar of Marvel. For a blow-by-blow of Wolverine’s life, visit The Rock Out.

Holiday Cheer

Thursday, December 13th, 2007

I love it when people are complimented on something they’re wearing and they accept the compliment as if it was about them.

“Nice tie.”

“Well, thank you. Thank you very much.”

The compliment is for the tie, it’s not for you, but we take it. That’s kind of the job of clothes; to get compliments for us, because it’s very hard to get compliments based on your human qualities. Right? Let’s face it, no matter how nice a person you are, nobody’s gonna come say:

“Hey, nice person.”

It’s much easier to be a jerk-off and just try and match the colours up. Right?
