Movie Quote of the day : Conan the Barbarian



Mongol General: Hao! Dai ye! We won again! This is good, but what is best in life?
Mongol: The open steppe, fleet horse, falcons at your wrist, and the wind in your hair.
Mongol General: Wrong! Conan! What is best in life?
Conan: To crush your enemies, see them driven before you, and to hear the lamentation of the women.
Mongol General: That is good! That is good.

I could say this all day in an Ahnuld accent and never get tired of it.

Wheel of Torture


I hate how Filipino TV manages to mangles imported shows. Aside from the fact that Kris “I’m going to talk like a retarded colegiala high on drugs” Aquino is the host, I just saw that one of their words today is “eleventh monthsary” and it’s categorized as an “event”. O RLY? Aside from the fact that monthsary is a word made up by kids and 20-somethings who can’t even manage to stay together long enough for an anniversary (o hai, self), how the fuck is that an event?!?!?! Seriously! Like, you could have picked “first monthsary” and that would have made more sense! I don’t even know why this bothers me so much but it really really does.

Knocked Up


Yeah I know it’s been out a while, but I only got to watch it over the weekend in bohol, thanks to my cracked and bruised but still managing to survive Creative Zen. The short of it is that I loved it. Since this movie is made by the same guys who did “The 40 year old virgin”, I was almost positive that I’d be laughing my ass off at it, but I’d say this was a better movie if only because it just felt more real. Nothing in it felt contrived, and the lessons learned weren’t passed along by some bartender giving sage advice. This, along with “The Breakup” is probably one of the most accurate portrayals of real life relationships that you can get when watching movies.

Also, this movie proves that men are animals, and there’s no way any of us can defend it. I’m looking at you, manblog.

New Theme

I suppose I should explain.  I liked the old theme better, but I noticed that it didn’t give you the ability to make pages like “about” or “contact”.  So I thought to myself, well what if people want to give me free shit, or want to invite me to go bombing or something, how would they let me know?  So yeah, had to change the theme so people could get in touch with me.

Hey Cebu Pacific, you listening?

Bohol Pictures


Still getting used to being in Manila and slogging through work. In the meantime, here are some bohol pictures taken with my d900. Going to bohol made me miss having a good camera. I still don’t think I’m enough of an enthusiast to purchase (or rather, repurchase) a dslr, but I’m now definitely in the market for a good compact camera with some manual controls, mostly because I don’t wanna have to lug a dslr around.

Back from Bohol


More pictures soon, hopefully not on this blog, but on the new one we’re planning but still have yet to name.  It is difficult, coming up with a good name for a blog.  Especially if you have standards.

Street Art Manila : Bluegreen Nuno


Spotted again on Amang Rodriguez. Looks like it’s a favorite spot of his.

5 minute sketches : Earthwater bender


Drew this after watching too much Avatar:The last airbender.  Squiggled some rocks in the background that might suggest he’s an earthbender, but the pattern on his clothes is more waterbender-y.

I can has internets! I are happy nao!


Oh my god.  You have no idea how horrible this week has been without internet.  It actually started last Thursday when I found out I had very limited access to the net.  I figured it was a temporary thing and soldiered on.  Communicating with my boss was a bitch, as we had to make do with gmail, which thankfully enough was one of the sites I could access (my main yahoo email was inaccessible, and so was my company email through thunderbird).  With no YM and no podcasts, I was bracing for the worst workweek of my life, bereft of the company of my virtual friends.

Friday: Still no YM and mail.  I listen to the last of my podcasts and hope for a better tomorrow.

Saturday: I write what will be my last blog entry for the following week, blissfully unaware that I will be locked out of my blog tomorrow.

Sunday: I can no longer blog.  I break down and withdraw from the internet for the day, hoping for a better tomorrow.

Monday: I have Yahoo mail! I have YM!  I can has internets!  Not.  I have limited net access, but still don’t have access to key sites.  And by key sites I mean podcasts.

Tuesday: I have a podcast!  It’s only 20 minutes long but The Basketball Jones is on 5 days a week, so this is still good news.

Wednesday: Revision3 and are finally accessible, providing me with meatier content to supplement the snack that is the basketball jones.

Thursday: Actually worked my ass off today, no time for complaining.  I use up my last supply of podcasts.

And today, I have it all back. Oh glorious, glorious internet, how would I make it through the day without you? *kisses monitor*

I’m actually off for bohol tomorrow so I’ll try to timestamp some shit to keep up with my new year’s resolution.  Also, this trip to bohol will be the start of a travel blog that I hope to run with some friends.  Why do I want to start a travel blog you ask?  To get free shit of course, like overnight stays at resorts and all that good stuff.  Let’s hope it works.

RJD2’s The Third Hand



Internet is still total ass, but just to keep up my new year’s resolution I wanna point y’all to RJD2 (born Ramble John “RJ” Krohn), who I only recently discovered but who is apparently a well known musician in the instrumental hip hop scene.  I’m currently digging his album The Third Hand, which is supposedly the “poppiest” of all his albums.  Anyone who appreciates hip hop that isn’t all about bitches and bling should give him a listen.  My favorite track on the album right now is “Get it”.  It’s got this killer opening groove that I’m not musically adept enough to identify or even describe, but it sure got my head bopping while listening to it.
