I can be a very, very paranoid person and out of sheer interest, I decided to look up the scientific names of my fears:

Iatrophobia - Fear of going to the doctor or of doctors.

Acrophobia - Fear of heights.

Arachnephobia or Arachnophobia- Fear of spiders.

Ophidiophobia - Fear of snakes. (Snakephobia)

The following phobias are just funny:

Hexakosioihexekontahexaphobia - Fear of the number 666.

it’s scary, I know, but the name is just retarded. 

Hippopotomonstrosesquippedaliophobia - Fear of long words.

probably the reason why they’re afraid of long words in the first place.

Lachanophobia - Fear of vegetables.

But but… vegetables are fuuuuunnnn!

Melophobia - Fear or hatred of music.

this is seriously idiotic… fear of souljah boy or of any crappy rap music is a legit fear.

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.

Patrick Stump is… dyslexic?

I am not a fan of Fall Out Boy.


Well, I was a fan before they released the travesty that was From Under the Cork Tree (and succeeding albums). Take This to Your Grave, on the other hand, was awesome. But that’s not the point. Ever since From Under the Cork Tree, Patrick Stump (the band’s vocalist) started starting incoherent - his lyrics cannot be deciphered. IT COULD NOT BE UNDERSTOOD! Well, here’s their video of Sugar, We’re Going Down.



Am I more than you bargained for? Yeah!

Oyyy been dying to tell you anytheee

You are a hair cause dashes I am this week

Lying the brass

Missin the balls Rnnneaahhhh

I’m just the nuts in your bedpost but sauce in your nyunn?? In your song

Drop a hole, make a name

we sniffing ink… the seeping for the roll tear


We’re going down down doobie doobie giraffe

Suugah we goin’ down swimmingg

I’ll dye another one with a bulley

Alone in my codplex cockey and puhlleeehy


Am I more than you bargained for? Eh!!?

Don’t mind me I’m watching U2 from the closet

Wishing to be the freak shine in your sheets

Isn’t it mess up how I’m just dying a bee here


FOB for the win. Ugh.



Acoustic Love

Tuesday, October 30th, 2007

I’m a firm believer that an acoustic set is the perfect gauge of a band’s greatness. If they can’t perform unplugged they aren’t worth ANYONE’S time. Yep, I’m that hardcore. If their genre or sound doesn’t even deem an acoustic session possible, I’d settle for a live performance. If they dont’ make my eyes water, my forearm hair tingle or my knees buckle, I’m not buying into it. Heh, and some people wonder why I’m the most biased person when it comes to music. Well listen up people, I know what I like and that is Gospel truth!

Coheed & Cambria - The Running Free


AFI - Endlessly, She Said

I’ll post some more great acoustic sets tomorrow. :D This is enough to quench your thirst for wanktastical music…. for now.



Pinoy Medley

Wednesday, October 24th, 2007

Ever noticed the medlies they play on thos crappy radio stations? The song starts with a typical beat and metrononome and then an old song like… let’s say Yellow Submarine plays over it. You can’t explain it but somehow the lyrics fit well into the beat. And then, after the chorus, a new song slithers in, maybe You Give Love a Bad Name, but then the beat and metronome doesnt change. Obviously, the lyric patterns of the Bon Jovi song and the Beatles song are distinctly different from each other but by some freak of nature (could be divine intervention) it FITS. IT REALLY FITS. I don’t get it.


I remember when I was riding the RoRo to Iloilo, I endured a whole Beatles discography medley. One beat all the way. It defies the immutable laws of music.


Only in the Philippines. :D



If there is no world for tomorrow, live for today

Monday, October 15th, 2007

I’m a huge Coheed & Cambria fan… a huge, huge, hugeeeeeeee fan. I’ve been waiting for their new tongue-tyingly long album Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV, Volume Two: No World for Tomorrow since God knows when. Yesterday, I got a leak from a friend’s friend (the album will be released on October 23, 2007) and I’m now a proud owner of a copy of Co&Ca’s new album. Needless to say, this album is AMAZING. This album is heavy, technical and POWERFUL and it’s safe to say, this album leaves the Second Stage Turbine Blade (Coheed and Cambria’s first and probably best album) in its wake. Saying something like that is blasphemous but believe me, you will understand once you hear it. This album ends the saga of Coheed & Cambria. Fans, don’t cry, this is not the end of the band. Their next album will be a prequel to Second Stage Turbine Blade and will tell the beginnings of Coheed & Cambria (the characters). If you want to hear it, you can go to my multiply page and listen there.

1. The Reaping:
A beautifully executed intro to get you started into the album. I hate when bands have an intro that’s not good, but they got this one right.
2. No World For Tomorrow:
Killer song, made my hair stand on its end and my “pencil” stand straight up. The pace of this song is pretty quick, it does slow down to take a breather, but then picks right back up and proceeds to own your ears off. Usually I fall in love with a song that needs to be re-played before the song is over because I fall in love with a specific part in the song, but this lengthly song is filled with goodness; inside and out. This is by far my favorite song.
3. The Hound (Of Blood And Rank):
The live recordings on the internet do not do any justice. :(
4. Feathers:
Another beautiful song, the solo fits in perfectly, and nothing seems to be out of place or “missing” in this song.
5. The Running Free:
You’ve all heard this song. Its amazing. Period.
6. Mother Superior:
The live version that we’ve all grown to love has just gotten stronger. Really minor lyric changes have been introduced to me from the live version. A new breathe life was inserted into this song once Claudio threw electric and a thunder storm of spine-chilling vocals into the mix.
7. Gravemakers And Gunslingers:
We accelerate into the album with Gravemakers and Gunslingers. Pretty rock-ish, and some crazy solos through out the song. I think a female vocalist is introduced into this song…either that, or Claudio can hit some extremely high notes. :D
8. Justice In Murder:
Brings me back to GA1 a little bit. I’m sure you all know my feelings about GA1, but this song isn’t bad at all, it actually keeps the album fresh and gives you a bit of a breather before heading into “The End Complete.”
* The End Chapter
9. I - The Fall Of House Atlantic:
10. II - Radio Bye Bye:
I can’t really describe this song. I’m sure I’ll think of something later today…
11. III - The End Complete:
Another fantastic song. This is their lengthiest song on the album, but for some reason it doesn’t fail to burn out. Solos are thrown into the song, and it almost feels like something dramatic is happening. You just get this epic vibe that runs through your bones.
12. IV - The Road And The Damned:
The song sounds very fluid, elegant, and easy to listen to. I’ve got nothing bad to say about it.
13. V - On The Brink:
Another lengthly song, but filled with smooth sounds. One part is a bit repetitive but not enough to put a negative twist on the song. The ending brings you back into the “Final Cut” type layout how a song goes.

Gaze upon a spectacle of pure skill

Monday, September 3rd, 2007

Coheed & Cambria is probably one of the BEST bands in the world right now. They’re nothing like any band out there today. Their sound is their own, their concepts are fresh. No band can hold a candle to these guys. Anyway, this is their new song from the upcoming tongue-tying album Good Apollo, I’m Burning Star IV: Volume II - No World For Tomorrow.
