I Suck

I know, I know… I was gone for a year! Take away the podcasts from last year and I would’ve been gone for more than two years! Ugh. I haven’t posted anything for so long, I can smell the molds in my dashboard. Considering I’m almost always online, I know some of you would wonder why I wasn’t keen about updating my blog. Who do I blame?

Stand By Me

The song has always been one of my old favorites, everyone I know knows it, there have been many cover versions for this song; and hearing it again in this video, with people from the streets –on the streets– performing them, it wow-ed me. I couldn’t help the tears welling up in my eyes during the first time I played the video. Oh gawd, it’s just a video. This Joiz person is such a cry baby.

Hagikgikan: The 3rd Encounter

I feel like I will burn in hell soon. Sorry about my high pitched squeals *facepalms* The intro and outro music is a background music from one of the scenes of the latest Fast and Furious movie. This one’s longer than the first two podcast, ang daldal namin e. And yes, it’s very Taglish.

Topics:

  • Wednesday food trip
  • Opinions about the food @ Soms Thai Eatery
  • Rio’s Deep Kissing and Sex video
  • Tina Yuzuki and Maria Ozawa
  • Mega Furiuja Megu Nude video
  • Crash (a 1996 movie, not the 2005 one)

Hagikgikan: The Second Serving

The second episode speaks of:

  • Feedback regarding the first podcast
  • Opinions regarding Fast & Furious 4
  • Upcoming movies this year that we’d want to watch
  • Dragonball Evolution & X-Men Origins: Wolverine
  • Fast & Furious Original Soundtracks
  • free ice cream from Selecta Gold
  • Events and people after watching the movie
  • Irritations and pet peeves
  • Pakbat Podcast from that same night
  • more giggling, random sound effects, brain storming…

I changed the stereo setting of the podcast. I noticed that on the previous upload, you can hear my voice on the left channel, and Shabby can be heard on the right channel. I’ll fixed that and re-uploaded it.

Hagikgikan: First Attempt

Hagikgikan is the first ever attempt to make a podcast (dalawa pa lang kami since everyone else is not here?) that will be released for public hearing. Yes, we noticed that we sound like boys and that we sound alike. Yes, we were using a conyo twang. Yes, we keep laughing and laughing. And yes, we didn’t make much sense but we enjoyed every damned minute of it. Enjoy bleeding your ears out too. πŸ˜›

You, guys can download it here.

Books… I Want Them

Janine of Cigarette Girl is giving away books. BOOKS! YUMMY. YUMMY. B-O-O-K-S.

I honestly want to read more than just one title from the list she has, such as Tuesdays with Morrie, Fairy Tales Mother Never Told You, Life of Pi, A Stone Gone Mad, Red Dragon and Heavy Water. But several of her blog readers has taken claim on some of those titles and considering my options, I instead want to stake claim on The Birth of Venus. Aside from the title reminding me of a beautiful renaissance Botticelli, stories of strong women mixed in with love and power charms me.

Wrap Up for 2008

It’s the eve of new year and although I should be up and about cleaning and preparing for kitchen duty, I just had stop and give my blog some much needed and long overdue loving.

This year has painted with a very colorful palette in my life’s canvas. So much so that I do not want to recall every little detail of it. But to draw the year to a close, I share to you how I will remember 2008 by.

2008 was the year…

Can’t Wait for Angels and Demons

As I was looking at the stats of my Flickr, I noticed that the most viewed photo I have on my collections was the photo of my friend’s tattoo on his thigh, the Illuminati diamond.

Personally, I’m not a big fan of the two tone thing. But the tattoo looked quite good IMO (still would have been better if it was on the chest! Like the branding in the book! Meep!). The views are coming from the search engines, although I don’t know what keywords are attracting the viewers and I don’t get why. 800+ all time views? WTF?

Dreams and Smokes

I’ve only admired you from afar. For so long I have kept the feelings deep within the recesses of my heart, and at the back of my mind. I know I can only admire you like I would a star. And I admire you for your eloquence, your intelligence, your humor, your wit. And I admire you for how you make me smile, how you seduce me, and how you make me laugh at myself after because you tell me it’s a joke. I admire you for how high you’ve achieved and how far up I believe you’d still go.

A Year Older

Yesterday marked my 24th year on Earth. I only spent the eve of my birthday drinking with one of my closest college friends, reminiscing about well… college and envisioning the years ahead. Spent my birthday with my family, and childhood friends. No well-planned (no plans at all) party, no grotesquely drunk joiz painted across the floor of some ladies room (no photos to prove it anyway), no flamboyant burning of cash. It was an ok birthday… Maybe it was a bit bitin but beggars can’t choose. I just didn’t want to plan anything at all (and end up disappointed that the plan just didn’t push through, like last year).
