I Want One!

The Catholic Holy Bible (NAB)I saw this handy and gorgeous looking Bible a week and a half ago over the net at this site but unfortunately (for me), the item is only available online and abroad.  It’s a Catholic Holy Bible (New American Bible) with Black Bonded Leather.  And it’s quite affordable with a price of $39.95.

It’s the only New American Bible in that size with the Words of Christ in Red.

Problem is… there aren’t any sold in the Philippines.

I’ve always wanted an item like this… not the typical hard-bound bibles they sell everywhere.  I’ve seen some sold at “Hobbes & Landes” and “Power Books” but all I found were NIV versions.  Sigh…!

It’d be nice to carry something like this during bible study and prayer meetings.  Oh well… probably next time.

Anyone care to send me one?  LOL!  :P

Aliens Vs. Predator – Requiem

Finally, the trailer for the upcoming AVP sequel entitled, “Alien vs. Predator – Requiem”, has been released. You can watch it below… for those who get squeamish on scenes with blood and decapitations… just skip the vid. Gory trailer… gory. But, hey… what’s an AVP flick without a bloodfest right?!

Enjoy!

Updates… Updates…

So many things have happened the past few days that I didn’t really get the chance to update my blog… funny!  So, let me enumerate the more notable events which happened just recently.

  1. Tooth Begone!
    molarI recently (about a week ago) had my molar extracted!  It’s been a long and dreary battle with my tooth and finally, I decided to just have the dentist yank it out.  Anyone who has ever experienced a really bad toothache can relate.  You can’t work, can’t talk, practically cannot concentrate on anything at all!  Not to mention the bad mood that you’re in throughout the day.
    But that doesn’t mean I’m pain-free already.  The tooth that was pulled out was a BIG one!  So, I’m still kinda recovering from it… and I’m still taking pain killers (though not as frequent as the first few days after the extraction).  Couldn’t eat right… oh, and I was adviced by my dentist not to engage in any strenuous activities for 3 days!  There goes my weightlifting routine for the week… bummer!  So was “sexy time”!  LOL!
  2. Under the Weather
    Apparently, this whole tooth extraction thingy has caused me to feel under the weather… and the cold sore just beside my swelling gum ain’t helping at all!  More pain relievers!  Dammit!
  3. WordPress Pinoys
    Wordpress Pinoys Community!  Sali Na! My baby project which has taken off quite successfully!  I’ve been busy creating a virtual home for all Pinoy WordPressers (WordPress.Com and WordPress.Org)… I’m very grateful that the vast majority of WordPress Pinoy Bloggers have joined the group.  Lots of events, projects and ideas will come out of this newly formed community.  Some of ‘em are already in the works… just you wait for it!
    In a span of merely 4 days, we’ve grown to an impressive 84 members already!  Our members are just as enthusiastic about this group as I am!  I’m pretty sure there are more Filipino WordPressers out there who haven’t heard of our community but slowly and surely we will gather each and every one of ‘em.  Hopefully we can eventually hold WordPress-sanctioned events here in the Philippines… that would be cool, huh?!  In fact, I was able to talk to Matt (Mullenweg) of WordPress/Automattic and he thought that the community and the official events the group plans to engage in are very good ideas.  So, if you’re a Pinoy with a WordPress blog… join your new home on the net… meet the rest of the wacky bunch at WordPress Pinoys!

    Oh and by the way… for those who aren’t aware… WordPress Pinoys used to be located at Google Groups but due to the sudden upsurge of memberships, tracking conversations and discussions within the group became a tedious and sometimes impossible task.  So, we finally put up our own forum located here.  Discussion threads and the exchanging of ideas are much easier to monitor now.  And everyone seems to be happy with it (Whew!).  I’ve wanted so badly for the transition from one site to the other to be a smooth one that I practically didn’t have time to maintain my own blog!  Haha… But we have very competent and responsible moderators over there already so I can go back to my regular blogging habit.  Did anyone miss my articles?  Anyone at all?  Hehe.  Anyhow, everyone who was (and still is) a member of the “WordPress Pinoys” Google Group is now a member of this new incarnation.  So, SALI NA!

So I guess that’s it!  More articles very soon… Hope everyone missed me!  You guys did miss me, right?  Right?!  :lol:

Pinoy Ako! WordPress Pinoy Bloggers!

Hello people! I recently put up a group for WordPress.Com and WordPress.Org Pinoy Bloggers… I figured, we’ve been posting comments on each other’s blogs, sharing jokes, sympathizing with each other’s struggles and challenges, laughing and sharing on other’s triumphs, but never really get to interact more than we actually can.

But (hopefully) with the help of this new group called, “WordPress Pinoys”, we can probably make our community tighter… mas “SOLID” kumbaga. Please invite your other Pinoy WordPress bloggers to join the group so that those whom others haven’t met can get acquainted with one another.

We can do a whole lot with this group… we can start organizing events, eyeballs, get-togethers, and even find new ways to drive traffic to each others blogs!

I really hope we can all gather around this idea and help the group flourish… and expand. If we can really make this an entire Pinoy WordPress network, we can probably even have WordPress-sanctioned Pinoy events in the future!

So… if you’re a Filipino and you happen to have a blog here at WordPress.Com or manage your own blog powered by WordPress.Org then click the image below and join the group! We’d love to meet (and have) new members!

 

After signing up, if it isn’t too much trouble… please use the image above and kindly post it on your WordPress sidebar and link it to the group’s site.

OR

You could just copy the HTML code below and paste it to your “text widget” (image is 200px wide):

<p align="center"><a href="http://groups.google.com/group/wordpress-pinoys" target="_blank"><img src="http://chuckster.files.wordpress.com/2007/08/pinoy-ako-sali-na-wordpress.jpg" alt="Sali Na! Join the Pinoy WordPress Bloggers Group!"></a></p>

 

For those who want a smaller image so that it could fit your current blog theme’s sidebar (150px wide to be exact), you can use this code instead:

<p align="center"><a href="http://groups.google.com/group/wordpress-pinoys" target="_blank"><img src="http://chuckster.files.wordpress.com/2007/08/pinoy-ako-sali-na-wordpress-smaller.jpg" alt="Sali Na! Join the Pinoy WordPress Bloggers Group!"></a></p>

 

Kaya sali na! Hope to see you there soon!

Inquirer Article

I’d like to thank “Rito Asilo” for posting a wonderful article on last Sunday’s edition of The “Daily Inquirer” (print and online versions).  The article’s main topic was all about Sarah Geronimo’s latest album, “Taking Flight”, but on the last paragraph of the writeup, Rito made special mention of how I, in his own words, “reinvented my artistic persona”…

Rito, thank you for the writeup.  Much appreciated!

Greatest American Hero

Sorry… just had to.  I’m a sucker for 80s stuff and the OBB of this show just threw me instantaneously back to 1983!  I heard Touchstone and Disney are already in the process of making a remake of “The Greatest American Hero” for the big screen.  No details yet as to whom the lead roles shall be given to.

Take a trip back to the 80s with me…

A high school math teacher is given a special suit by mysterious aliens that will allow him to perform amazing feats (flying, super-strength, X-ray vision, shrinking, invisibility, just about every super power). The problem is that he quickly loses the instruction book, so he has to learn how to use the suit, which, quite frankly, he’s not very good at… He’s soon joined by an FBI agent, who teams up with the “super hero”, basically using him to fight crime, etc.

Smells Like Ting(gel) Spirit…

Vulva PerfumeUmmm… pardon the blog article’s title… but I thought it apt to name it such… (we’ll get to that soon enough)…!

Ok… let me start elaborating as to why the title came about. Ready? Some of you probably have heard of this already but for those who weren’t fortunate enough to take an early “whiff” of the information, this one’s for YOU!

DID YOU KNOW… that there’s a NEW perfume for men that actually smells like the (thinking of a cute way of calling it…) “peepee” of a woman? It’s soooo f*ckin true! It’s called (ready for it?)… “VULVA”!

Here is their “press release”:

The erotic and intimate scent of an irresistible woman has been encapsulated into a small glass bottle, not as a perfume but purely as a substance for your own smelling pleasure.

The bottle is to be shaken gently and when only a tiny amount of this intoxicating substance is applied to the back of the hand the irresistible smell of a moist, sensuous vagina exudes and immediately intensifies your erotic fantasies, stimulating the cinematic visions of the imagination.

Breathe in and enjoy the scent of a beautiful woman anytime, anywhere!

Now I don’t know about you, but the way I see it… You have got to be soooo freaking desperate to resort to sniffing your own bottle of portable PEEPEE! Bwahahaha!

As if “TV Patrol”, “GMA Network News” and “SOCO” don’t have enough rape cases to cover all over the country already… bring this baby in and watch our presently escalating crime rate skyrocket to new record highs! Not to mention our “baby factories” (slum and squatters area) within the metropolis! LOL!

Does it come in three variants kaya?

  1. “Pre-intimate wash” aroma

  2. “After intensive stress at work” aroma

  3. “UTI” aroma

Check out their commercial below! Classy, eh?! LOL!

Lol! Sorry… couldn’t help myself! It’s just really hilarious…! Look at the guy on the second picture above… pretending to sniff ala connoisseur of peepee odors! Ok… I’ll stop now… I’ll leave you guys to your imaginations, my little dirty-minded, naughty readers!

Live and Let Live(r) Pate!

Chuck at Crustasia (Cropped)Boy am I lucky to have a wifey that loves to cook and make different kinds of dishes… and is damn good at it! She just prepared a whole container of LIVER PATE for me which, in my honest opinion, is way way better than those sold at Santies or Almon Marina or any other delicatessen shop you could think of.

Yum! Pate on my left… whole wheat Crostini on my right… iced tea (light, mind you!) and late night television to keep me company… doesn’t get any better than this! Unless the wifey’s beside me… and “sexy time” comes next! LOL! :D

But not soon after eating…! (Baka magka-appendicitis eh!) Hahaha! :P

Comic Book Movies

Many of you… mostly my avid readers, are wondering where I get my geeky superhero movie news, right?  Well, most of the stuff I post come from a site I love visiting on a regular basis called ComicBookMovie.Com!

Lots of cool “comic book heroes adapted to the big screen” updates!

Check out their site… you’d probably want to bookmark them as well.  A wonderful source for all the awesome tidbits on your eagerly anticipated film adaptations.

Thug Rap

I was at the gym earlier and I kinda noticed how the person in-charge of maintaining the facility kept on playing “thug-type” rap music…! Then I noticed how similar all these songs sounded… and how all their lyrics are laced err… rather “filled” (to the brim) with profanity and expletives!

It’s like all they could say is “bitch”, “fuck”, “motherfucker”, and all the other crap you could think of. I bet if you ask them to write some rap lyrics without the profanity, they’d be “dumbfucked” (pun intended).

No wonder the rap genre is at a decline… all the same words intertwined with unoriginal resampled choruses of old songs. Ok… not only can they ONLY talk about bitches and motherfuckers and “capping” (“shooting” for the uninformed) other “niggas” (as they would normally call one another in their songs)… they also DON’T KNOW how to write original melodies to match their unrequited hatred in verses.

When they realize (yes, they also have realizations like normal people) that the words they’ve been using have been too worn out, they make up a bunch of new “slang” terminologies which actually have the same definitions as their old words… then they use these “made up” words to reconstruct new verses, which, in reality ARE the same in gist.

People actually buy THIS stuff?!!!

Why can’t most of them rap like some very few upstanding African-Americans in the music industry such as Will Smith who doesn’t believe in intertwining profanity with his lyrics?

Thug-Rap. All about hatred… All about sex… All about violence… unoriginal… and NO musicality. Such a pity… and an embarrassment to the industry. Tsk-tsk!

Oh… and if you’re still wondering about the guy in charge of the music at the gym… yeah, I told him I’d be permanently leaving him with some new CDs when I come back… something with REAL MUSIC!

The Dark Knight Spoilers Begin!

tdk_logo The Batman Begins sequel (The Dark Knight) spoilers have started pouring in as elaborated below by comicbookmovie.com:

“SlashFilm was lucky enough to be in correspondence with a reliable source, who presented them with a whole host of juicy spoilers for them to sink their teeth in to and, vicariously, us too! Over the next few days more will be released, and whether any of them will turn out to be true will be left to history to decide, until we know otherwise, let the speculation begin”:

When The Joker (Heath Ledger) kidnaps Rachael Dawes (Maggie Gyllenhaal) from a big party, Dawes is forced to reveal Batman’s true identity, Bruce Wayne. Later, however, The Joker becomes convinced that Dawes lied to him when he encounters both Bruce Wayne and Batman in the same room together simultaneously.

I have no idea how Bruce pulls this off. I would assume that if a Batman impostor exists, Joker would likely be in on that joke. This causes Joker to think that Bruce Wayne is NOT Batman and that Rachel, in fact, lied to him… His accusation of her deception doesn’t end well.

Apparently there is an impostor posing as Batman who is running around Gotham City. The cops believe he is the real Batman and that he is on their side. How this plays into the big story is unknown. I know that this may seem very unlikely and improbable, but my source has not been wrong yet.

OMG! Captured Video of UFO in Haiti!

Ok… captured videos of UFOs don’t get any better than THIS. Below is an amateur video of 2 UFOs hovering just above the trees in Haiti. Supposedly taken very recently… the evening of August 6, 2007. Some skeptics may say that this clip was manipulated using CGI but from what I saw… it seemed pretty much untouched.

You be the judge…! But I have to admit, this short video blew me away!

I Do

I recently stumbled upon a new video on You Tube featuring one talented singer named “KazMills” who happens to belong to a bunch of emerging singers/musicians such as Esmee Denters and MrPitifulBand.

Over at KazMills’ You Tube page, she recently uploaded a video of herself singing a composition she wrote entitled, “I Do”, which I absolutely loved listening to!

I’d like to share the video with you guys cause good songs just shouldn’t be kept to one’s self… the lyrics to her song is posted below the video.  Enjoy!

 

“I DO”

When I see you now… What I see is
A shadow of what we could have been.

Something better than we’d already seen.

When I see you now… Should I be
Holding on to what you did to me?

Yes I should. But forgive me.
Letting go doesn’t happen easily.

CHORUS:

And if it seems, Like I care for you,
Memories are hard to see through.
And if it seems, Like I need you,
That will just be deja vu.
And if it seems like I miss you,
It’s cos I do.

When you see me now… What d’you see?
Do you see the one who was once a dream?

Do you see why you let go of me?

When you see me now… Possibly
Could you try to hide your sparkling wedding ring?

When you see me now… I hope it hurts

(Chorus)

When did we fall apart?  When did we start living this lie?

Sometimes it feels like we’re living in a dream that’s not our’s.
And I want to wake up.

And if it seems,  Like I care for you,
It’s cos you want me to.
And if it seems,  Like I need you,
It’s cos you want me to.
And if it seems like I miss you,
It’s cos I do.

Justice League: The New Frontier

DC is involved in three direct to video animated films, and the second of those three is shaping up to be one of the greatest animated films of our time.

With a wonderful cast, and a story based off a book that took an epic ride through one of the greatest times of comic history, Justice League: the New Frontier is definitely an animated film worth looking forward to.

Watch the trailer below and enjoy!
