...when it's all stupid

The rebel in me has brought to life. I don’t know but I just hate some people who try to do things for their convenience. Smashing memorandum right to anybody’s faces and trying to project an image as if she’s the authority.

OK!!! I’ll give you that but there’s a thing as EFFORTLESSLY ASSHOLE. You just give everybody a hell out of everything. I know I have my own share of being the shit but I negotiated my way out of it (Yeah! AND I DESERVE IT). I know you deserve such an explanation but I just hate the way you deliver. Zero Charisma…100% Hostile.

But anyway, it’s just the beginning but when you’ll try to step on my turf and babble your way…I’ll just get my UNPRETTIER on you.

Christmas 2006

I used to stay home during Christmas but for this year, I somewhat gave myself a break.

Of course, I was at home for the Christmas Eve with my family to have that Christmas dinner but when everyone went to sleep, I went straight to Hype’s HQ.

Yup! I was with Rica, Juan and Enzo. It was all fun as we tried to munch our way into the morning. We reminisce the grade school days and just laugh to every single story we could share.

I went home at about 5:30 AM and recharged myself for my next schedule.

I was with Ruth doing the movie marathon. We watched KKK, Zsa Zsa Zathurna and Enteng Kabisoto 3. It may be corny for some but we had a good time.

*sigh…

...awkward

*sigh. The family of my sister’s boyfriend will be at home tonight. They will somewhat formalize their wedding next year.

I don’t know but I feel somewhat awkward as I’ll be in my father’s shoes…I’m afraid it would be the same case when I get married. Hehehe…

Anyway, I just have to be there and do some talking.

...the big come down

I don’t know but it still hurts thinking about the day when I parted ways with my “ex”. I was able see something this day that stroke my ego. It’s not that I’m still into her but I just can’t believe being setup in her conspiracy. It may be exaggerated but things have been weaved the way it went.

And yes, I’m no better than her current flame and I just want to forget about it. I’ve been fair to her from the very start and it seems like she just did things for her convenience.

*sigh

...of wolf and vultures

It’s sad to know that some “friends” are digging their own grave. We were very disappointed to all the lies she had for the group. We trusted her. We were like siblings revolving around the sport we love.

What supposed to be simple has become complicated. Not only she has twisted her way through it but made a hell out of our friends. She had done the unexpected. She has been to the uncharted territory for her convenience. It was all lies.

But some things must come to an ugly end. We had finally made our move since she was that ninja that she has been for days…doing her escape from all the things we would like to know.

We had her cornered. We had invaded her turf (…and Noy had his mark established as he pissed his way to the walls…hehe). Things are becoming obvious. We were on a journey to the devious depth of her wicked mind. Her reputations went below sea level.

She may be a wolf on a sheep’s wool but we were vultures gawking around her.

It may be brutal but we deserve a little exaggeration.

...ear bleed for Iron Maiden

I uploaded Iron Maiden’s “Powerslave” and “Number of the Beast” to my iPod and I just can’t stop playing it. Even though it was in the 80s, it has this fresh sound that is echoing in today’s metal bands.





Hopefully, I could backup some tunes as I’m planning to get all of their tunes plus all of Anthrax and Slayer.

Ok, back to work.

Thursday, December 14, 2006

...still still

Christmas is soonies…but never in blue hell that I’m feeling it.

I still have no girlfriend and its an effort to go to reunions and parties being questioned with…”Bayot ka bay?”, “Mag-pari ka”?” *sigh

Where in heaven’s name is my happiness?

Tuesday, December 12, 2006

...butterflies

Who would have thought I could spend some time with Ruth? It was unimaginable until I finally had it with her. It was all fun. We talked about almost anything.

Hmmm…I find her EFFORTLESSLY CHARMING…and Yes!!! In CAPITAL LETTERS.

I don’t know but it’s a nice feeling being with her. *sigh

Friday, December 08, 2006

...too sad

Again, it’s December and I’m feeling empty. It’s just a thing for me every year. I just don‘t know how things would be for the holidays but I hope it’ll be fun. I just want to forget this thing in me.

Anyway, I got to hear some tunes from Rascal Flatts and I just want someone to hear this.


*sigh. It’s Friday and it’s too sad.

Kung Pow...Perti

Wednesday, December 06, 2006

...*sigh...trying to...

I had so much for myself lately. I had a “staff meeting” until almost 12 MN…(drunk all the booze we could get), fixed the template for our client and witnessed the preview to Microsoft Vista and Office 2007.

It was too much that I’m almost drained at this time. I want to do things but it seems that I’m still waiting for my “someone” to reply.

Anyway, I have uploaded some tunes from Tori Amos, The Killjoys, The Wreckers (Yeah!!! Michelle Branch and Jessica Harp) and Rascal Flatts. (Yup!!! Very much different now… I guess it has something to do with what I’m feeling right now)

*sigh. *I want to see you now*

...Makalibog na Spirits!!!


With months of waiting and practice, we have finally stepped on the greens of Alabang Country Club for Manila Spirits International Tournament 2006.

The event is one of the most talked amongst Ultimate Players in and out of the country. With this year’s event, Ultimate STD from Davao City is the first provincial team to compete against seasoned Manila and International Teams.

The youngest of all, formally established on summer of 2006, Ultimate STD is composed of Davaoeños Aldrin (yup, Ako), Bads, Bayani, Bing, Ceasar, Francis, Ipe, Jenny, Luan, Maean, Mariano, Pyk and Tish and Manileños Anne, Paolo, Carlson, Cary, Chris and Joy.

It was really fun playing against teams among our Pool. Teams like SPO1, TODA, Boracay Dragons, HongKong Junks, Jogadores and K3. We may only have won 1 game but it was really fun being with the teams on the field. We have played the best as we can and we’re just glad that they appreciated our effort (Not bad for newbies). We exchanged handshakes and smiles … And even HongKong Junks sang for us. We have created friendships and it was truly great to meet them all.

Until the next Spirits…Kinsay Nalibog?! STD!!!

...last minutes

I was about to do my share for the cooperative’s business planning on Saturday when I was plummeted with 3 new sets of computer. I don’t have any other choice but to install and deliver. I think I just have to do things later in the evening and email my report since I’ll be in Manila Spirits ’06 on the weekend.

Manila Spirits ’06 is very soon. I’m just excited. The team is ready and we hope to have fun. Please God help us.

Tuesday, November 21, 2006

...through the never

I don’t know but I feel so exhausted for the past weeks. I had so much work and I hope I could get all the energy and strength for Manila Spirits ’06 on weekend.

I haven’t prepared my things yet and I just have to do it tonight.

Anyway, I need more sleep.

Iron Maiden Vs. True Faith

While I was watching Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey, Medwin Marfil of True Faith looks like Bruce Dickinson of Iron Maiden.

*haha. I wonder…How would Medwin sing “Number of the Beast”? Or Bruce sings “Perfect”? *hehe

...excited to Manila Spirits '06

I finally got my plane ticket to Manila and back. Its 10 days before Manila Spirits ’06 and everyone in the team are excited.

We’ll have a meeting tonight and we hope to get into things.

*excited

my thing on Metal: A Headbanger's Journey

I now have my copy of Metal: A Headbanger’s Journey. It’s a documentary by Sam Dunn, an anthropologist and a metal fan. He traced the origins, the roots and all the things that would answer all the doubts about Metal.

He had interviews with some of the world’s Metal artists. My favorite would be with Iron Maiden’s Bruce Dickinson, Black Sabbath’s Tommy Iommi, Twisted Sister’s Dee Snider and Ronnie James Dio(Yeah! He’s the real man behind Rock’s Devil’s Horns \m/). And with an interview with Mayhem, I really find those geeks funny. (Yeah! They’re “Satanists” but I never had the chill when they did all those “Anti-Christ, Fu*k whatever, Anti-Establishment” rants.)

Well, the thing about Metal music is that, it has never exhausted people talking about it. Largely misinterpreted with Satanism, majority of it has nothing to do with all the killings and suicide that society has been trying to associate with. Yeah! There are devils, monsters, pentagrams and the Devil’s horns but that’s the way Metal is. As Kerry King of Slayer had said, He likes to take potshots at religion which is the biggest brainwashing thing.

Taking those words from him, I now understand why they love to negate the “norms”…the norm that has been defined by a setup of a grand conspiracy. I do not have the position to get into the monopoly of the righteous, but I also had my experience of why all the hate that they have for “religion”.

In my case, I used to be the rebel against the “big penguins” who just love to smack rulers at our hands and heads when we do wrong… (I was in kindergarten when I tried to color Mother Mary’s skin with orange since I only have an 8 color crayola set with orange, green and yellow left… we were even forced to sleep one afternoon with a reason that God would be angry if we won’t). I had this hate when I see them in corridors, visualizing myself, firing guns at them. Even the priests at my grade school days who just love to have “business” instead of giving service to the people in their flock. Just like in the Jose Rizal’s “Noli Me Tangere” and “El Filibusterismo”, the irrational things being laid down by the people of the church just to get into their advantage. (I wonder, could Jose Rizal be in a Metal Band if he’s alive today?)

With all of these, I have my share of why I love metal… the lyrics and the energy speaks to me on a personal level. It’s like me shouting at those “enemies” with style. I just love to negate those people who use their position in the society for their advantage… getting all the convenience that they could for themselves.

I’m a practical Catholic and I believe in God. I love Metal music and just like any Metal fan, I don’t really give a damn about people defining me to something they themselves can only comprehend.

my new cleats



Finally, I have bought myself another pair of cleats. And this time, its color white. I just have to get another pair for my first pair would soon be retiring if I’ll use it all the time. At least, my first pair would be having its own substitute. Just in time for Manila Spirits '06

Thank you Lord.

Saturday, November 11, 2006

time out

*sigh. I went home at about 4:30 in the morning. I had my time with Gold, drinking all the booze that we could get. Of course, we had the always present “Red Horse” and some Jäger

At least, I was able to spend my time without being depressed.

Friday, November 10, 2006

...still in the office

As much as I want to be “Irie”, I’m still not feeling good. I feel so empty and I don’t feel like going home early.

I’m still in the office, trying to get into something that might burn some time. I want to forget about things (yeah…the nothingness)

*sigh…Oh please God help me.

...grrrrrrrrr

I feel so bad…What’s the point of me going to her birthday party?

After all the things they’ve said about me, she’s inviting me to be there. Is she trying to play with my emotion?

...neck pain

My neck still hurts and I just can’t do my usual. I had this since Saturday evening and getting through this was not really fun. I have to be in this “Batman-Michael Keaton” thing as I try to get through my things.

Anyway, I have to get some medication as I haven’t been in practice for so long. Manila Spirts ’06 is coming soon and I hope to be in my most normal form.

…of egos and principles

For nights, I’ve been thinking about getting into situations like I am having now. I just can’t believe how I got misunderstood by a person I respect.

Talk about comprehension or anything for that to equate things in between. I don’t have to bad-mouth anybody just to satisfy my ego. I’m just being nice to express my concern on a certain thing. Oh well, maybe it’s unsolicited but I just want something for her to move ahead…something that will make her better.

*sigh. But things went into the void. I was misunderstood…to the point that I have to stand for what I believe. I have to get my sanity back into me. I have to fill my nothingness.

Of course, I know what’s rude and being frank but being opinionated (Yeah, somebody has to tell the ugly truth) has its own price. And worse, the person who used to be ideal in my eyes tends to talk things that are not on her reach. Craps had been rolling from her mouth… like gossips burning from her tongue.

Being in this world that’s been unfair from the start, I tried to give without asking. Satisfying egos and trying to confirm the person that I wanted to be is a struggle that I’ve been fighting. Compromising and getting into the “order” is something that we’ve all been… just to have that “peace” in our lives.

But when principles are starting to feel the itch of being scratched, I just have to battle it all for my sanity. It’s a hard one but I just have to follow my instincts..it usually takes me home.

zooming the way

I don’t know but I spent my last 48 hours doing all the things for the dead and drinking.

After our visit to our grandparents’ tomb at Norala, South Cotabato, we went home at about 7 pm yesterday for a “pit stop”. I got a text from Gold and decided to consume my Tequila with her. It was really fun drinking with her mother getting the first shot. I just can’t imagine how we had it all. I began to get drunk halfway and all I could do was smile and get “irie” with everything.

I went home at about 5:30 am and prepared for the day.

*sigh. I just have to get more sleep.

Tuesday, October 31, 2006

...shit happens

Breaking up with someone is the hardest thing…and doing it online…it’s the bluest of blue hell.

Well, for the past weeks, I felt like dealing with a superficial entity. No text replies and lots of alibis.

I know I had my own share of being the complete asshole but I tried to be the best. It’s just that, it hurts to be defined something I’m not.

I know what I’ve done and I know what I’ve said. But shit happens and this time, it’s on me.

Monday, October 30, 2006

...not much

Saturday was fine until I went home late for some meeting. *sigh. I don’t know but I’m getting this “Emptiness” again. I decided to take a walk from the office to Ilustre, thinking that I could just divert to something.

…and still, I ended up buying some Capt. Jack Sparrow’s DVDs.

Cliff Burton's 20th Death Anniversary

Today is the 20th Death Anniversary of Cliff Burton, Metallica’s greatest bass player.

He had made 6 major tours with Metallica and 3 studio albums (Kill ‘Em All, Ride The Lightning and Master of Puppets). He’s just way beyond time. You can really feel the genius of him when you listen to the albums. He’s just great.

Because of him, Metallica has made it this far.

Anyway, here’s “Orion”, played at Seoul, Korea with Robert on bass (They’re getting emotional playing Cliff’s song *sniff). Just listen to the music and know Cliff’s style.

...tourney, party, atbp.

Finally, DULA’s tourney had ended. We’re all exhausted and very much dried up. From tournaments to event organizing, our spirits never let us down.

It was truly a great time to play and have fun with the disc addicts. Friends from Holy Cross, Ateneo, UIC and Mulatto just gave their hearts out. It was truly the best event so far for DULA. Everyone just can’t wipe the fun out of their faces. Disc addicts are truly PARTY PEOPLE!!!

Well, lots of lessons learned. But one thing I’ve always proven to myself many times...”It may not be the best for somebody or everybody (the pessimists and the “rational” trying to equate the parameters of the creative) but it may BLOW THE BLUE HELL OUT OF THEM. What seem to be the “been theres” doesn’t really fit the person they think they’ve been there…They’re just light years behind their used to be best.

An Ultimate Weekend

My weekend was the best weekend so far. I was with my Ultimate Friends and we really had a great time re-learning Ultimate with our Ultimate Trainor and Friend, Jason Lopez (wow!!! J.Lo)

Even though we’ve been playing Ultimate since April 2006, we’ve learned so much from the master himself. We had to re-do what we had learned and doing it again the right way was fun.

Yes, the sun was blistering hot but it never stopped us from learning the sport. It was all worth it. The throws, the plays and the drills really made our outlook for the sport somewhat “professional”.

In my case, I’ve come to realize that what I used to define as “stress reliever” has become my passion. I’ve never been excited in my life to play and learn. I exerted much of my effort and I’m very happy that I have somewhat experienced the luxury of learning the sport that I love.

A Perfect Layout

This is our Ultimate Trainor, Jason Lopez (aka J.Lo).

Grabe!!! Thanks for the time and being patient on the field. We have learned so much for 2 days. You have really helped us go for more.

Thanks for the "Muscle Memory".

So Sad

I got my copy of Trivium’s new album “The Crusade” last Wednesday and uploaded it to my iPod.

* Whoa! * I’m just disappointed. With all the media and the metal community waiting for the “Greatest Trivium Album To Date”, it failed to meet my expectations.

I’m not in authority to say this but in blue hell, it was like a copy of Metallica’s Kill ‘Em All, Ride The Lightning and Master Of Puppets.

…what in heaven’s blue hell

I don’t know but I’m starting to dislike some people. I used to like them as if they were that good in handling pressures and the way they see other people.

We have done our work just to get things a level higher but in blue hell, we just can’t understand the logic they have been. Yes, they’ve seen some people who did great but what used to be grand doesn’t even fit to our standards. I’m not saying that we have the monopoly of great ideas; it’s just that, our idea wasn’t even given a chance. The contract has been presented and it’s SUBJECT TO NEGOTIATIONS (Yes! Contracts are not made instant). I don’t know but we just got a GREAT BIG NO. *sigh. I expected a counter offer, not a lousy rejection.

Does hustle sounds familiar?

*sigh.

DULA and Bantay Bata 163 MOA Signing

Yesterday was very fun. The DULA-USTD and Bantay Bata 163 Davao had finally signed contract for the computer sets DULA would be donating.

Everyone was in high spirits as we had forged the agreement on papers. We were all laughing as if it was not a serious business.

As Alice would say, “This is the most fun contract signing Bantay Bata has.”

And in the afternoon, Ipe and I were guest for DXAB 1296 Bantay Bata 163 Davao Radio Program.

Razorback!!!

After almost 10 years since they performed live in Davao, Razorback has finally come back for the Oktoberfest…(This time without Tirso and Dave). Manuel, who’s with Wolfgang, has covered for the event.

It was really fun to hear them live. I just can’t help but overwhelmed with so much of the too much. And to our surprise, Eric Gancio of Yano was also there to play with the boars.

I really had fun with my friends.

From L to R: Unknown, Me, Louie, Kevin, Manuel and Bryan

Irie Man!!!

Things in the consumer services will be done and I’ll have my break soon. For two weeks, all I did was go in between branches and the main office and install computers and its systems. I lost track of my usual sit, analyze and deploy. I just have to be back fast as I’m delayed 1 week.

Thank God, I’m doing great and things are picking up. Users are very much in sync with the process. *sigh*

Anyway, tonight would be great as I’ll be with Juan and some friends to watch Razorback for the Davao leg’s Oktoberfest launch at DAMOSA Gateway. Thanks to Rocky for texting me about the event. The last time I saw them was with Wolfgang on their Roadworthy Tour here in Davao. Pinoy Rock at it’s best.

I also have to archive some tunes I downloaded from Torrent. Hehe. Irie Man!!!

Tuesday, September 26, 2006

Push It

I woke up “empty”. I just don’t know if it’s the effect of Red Horse and Fundador I had last night with friends at work. Or maybe it’s the effect of not playing Ultimate Frisbee for 2 weeks. *sigh.

I just didn’t have the time to think about it until I was done with so much work. I want to let it all out. I just don’t know how.

Aahhhhhhhh!!!

Why do some people act like they’ve been Ateneans (de Manila) or “Sorry, I don’t know what people from UST are”? Are they trying to sound like them? Are they trying to become the “bling” from the crowd? Or have that status of the “In” at these days?

I know, it’s nice to have that 1 second shot made by that player, but in blue hell, it’s not a good reason for you to act as if you’re one of them, making stories like you’ve been there in the crowd as part of the Atenista (de Manila) or the “Atenista de Manila” as you’ve been trying to act.

Sorry, I’m not amused.

...newest toy



After 7 years of using AMD Processors, I finally tried Intel’s Core 2 Duo.

At first I was hesitant, thinking of getting AMD X2 but with so much AMD for the past 12 months (4 AMD Turion 64 Laptops (2 for the Office and 2 for friends), 2 AMD Athlon XP 64, 23 AMD Sempron 64 2600+/3000+) and prices of computer parts plunged its way to the “puddle”, I gave Intel a try.

Anyway, I got these things for the server.
• Intel Core 2 Duo Processor 1.8 Ghz
• Epox 5P945C GLI Motherboard
• 2 x 512 mb DDR 2 Memory
• 128 mb 128 bit DDR3 7300GT Sonic
• Philips 16x DVD+R/-R Dual Layer
• 250 GB Seagate SATA Hard Disk

So far, I’m happy with it on Windows 2003 Small Business Server. I hope it’ll be great for the system.

Friday, September 22, 2006

done with it

Yesterday was a hell ride. I got up with a telephone call from Panacan branch. Their server had caused too much trouble and they just can’t get into the operations. I hurriedly prepared my things for the day and went straight to the office.

67 death metal albums were great for the day’s work and went home at about 11:30 PM.

Server is up and still waiting for some ambiguities.

Not bad to end the day. Thank you Lord.

iTunes 7

I just had my iTunes 7. Very neat and I just love the Cover Browser. Just like the way you browse your CDs.

*sigh

I just got in the office and read some news.

“Muslim anger against the pope” and “New iPods for the season”.

Well, for the Muslim population on their growing anger for the pope’s comments, I guess we just have to get into the thing of digging the real context of his statement.

Quoting the pope’s speech at Germany.

"The emperor comes to speak about the issue of jihad, holy war," Benedict said. "He said, I quote, 'Show me just what Muhammad brought that was new, and there you will find things only evil and inhuman, such as his command to spread by the sword the faith he preached.'"

The pope did not explicitly agree with nor repudiate the comment. Well in fact, he is against the use of violence in the name of religion.

If people on each religion will not talk about these, war will be the next agenda. And some groups would fuel this for their convenience like terrorism. God forbid.

2 GB iPod Nano Family


And of the new iPods, they’re just great. I’m just sorry for people who just bought their nanos. Its iPod mini + iPod nano.

Wasting some time

Today, I’m on leave. I just had my laboratory for my Medical Examination. The doctor would be in her clinic at 4 PM so I’m wasting some time here in Ilustre.

The place is great. You can have your laptop connected through their network. Its weird of them to call it WiFi hotspot since my laptop had it connected physically. This is WiFi, SpaNet version.

Hahaha...WiFi.

a thought on mac users

I know you’ve heard some of the Mac Addicts’ brouhaha about their Macs. That it’s better than Windows and its far more user friendly than any operating system around the market. Their attitude of being that “superior” over Windows users just makes me poke a newly sharpened pencil to their eyes.

Ok, it’s no doubt that their gadgets are better, but with user friendliness, I think it’s not that friendly. It’s just weird knowing people who are into technology fail to get into iTunes or install some new programs or even don’t know how to use iPod. Even some tend to ask to other mac users just to get in.

I’m a Windows user myself and I’m ok with it. I had problems with it but just like any technology, I know how to play with it.

Is it really user friendly or just another inducted mac user who turns to feel superior by flaunting their macs.

It’s not the machine, it’s the user.

3D Soap Opera

My week has been fun.

Being the cooperative’s resident lab rat, I shift to any geek related task in micro seconds. From Systems Administrator to Computer Technician to Systems Developer to Electrician to Capt. I.T. of unanswered stupid I.T. questions search engine.

I just can’t finish a task for people in my place just want my presence to get through their things. From simple “light in the tunnel resolution on computer monitors because I don’t know how to adjust ” to complex “I can’t connect to the network because I’m stupid to realize that I unplugged the network cable because I want to transfer my computer to a better place” to glorified status of “Ooopps!!! I want some mp3s on my computer because I’m cool to have an mp3 CD bought at Greenhills by my sister who’s having her vacation in Davao" (with a sossy accent like Da’vaO…with enunciated “V”…PERTI. Dabaw ra na) to “I’m charming please like me” “When would my computer be fixed because I have to chat my chatmate from far away land of United States of Matina Aplaya”.

Hahaha…I just love getting through those things. It was like soap opera on 3D glasses. I just can’t help but laugh on these people. They’re effortlessly funny.

entertain me

I’ve been to situations where I like to annoy people who impose some things for their conveniences. And with yesterday’s overwhelming population of people in this category, I have decided to make it a hobby of mine, to annoy every single one of them.

I just can’t take them who try to become the person they would want to. Like what happened to the grocery packer. The old lady (customer) was scolding the packer because of the way he packed her groceries. I’ve seen how things were packed and I don’t think he was sloppy on his job. She continued to whack her mouth as if she owns the packer.

And with some people who doesn’t know what queue is, I was about to get our groceries into the taxi when a lady with her kids went straight ahead as if they have not seen me loading my things into it. She had this look on her face as if I was the one who didn’t have the sense of order.

Well, being the person that I am who just love to annoy people like these, I am too quick to get between things. With the old lady, I just told her to shut up. And with the lady who went straight to the taxi, I just stood straight between her grocery cart and the taxi as if I haven’t seen her. She really had a hard time unloading her groceries until she told me excuse myself between them. Of course, I “haven’t heard her”.

With all these, I just love the look in their faces. They were really surprised. I just don’t want people like them to get into other people just to have the convenience that they want for themselves. It’s just that, everybody’s fighting a hard battle everyday. So please, be good to everybody even if you’re in a bad mood. And if not, you’ll find people like me who like to be entertained by people like you.

what beer?

\m/. I just got home from a short chat with Gold. And I can now distinguish San Mig Light from San Mig Strong Ice.

Just don’t gargle your mouthwash when you go drinking. I just can’t take it.

God vs. Science

After some time of browsing for something to read, I was able to get into another classic debate, God vs. Science.

Well, for people who don’t, it’s either they really don’t believe (period) or just want to impress people of the notion that people in this category are intelligent.

I don’t want to get technical about it and I’m just a believer of God. I respect people who don’t believe in Him but please, spare me from the Charles Darwin Theory of Natural Selection.

If you believe that humans evolved from monkeys, speak for your family.

metal militia

And again, I’m too early from my usual office hours. I just have to make it early so I could go home earlier and get my Frisbee gear.

I don’t know but I’m better when I woke up. Maybe from the sleep function of my iPod that has been set to 60 min. before I slept and waking me up at 6 am with In Flames, Evergrey, Dark Tranquility, Soilwork and Opeth in it.

They’re doing it through my consciousness. I can now easily hear the screams and I can understand it. Yehey!!!

blue monday

It’s blue Monday again. I woke up at 8 am and went in the office at 10:45 am.

I had the documents for sponsorship delivered at SM with Juan and went to Matina branch to install the printer that has been asked by them.

I was also between floors as I did some repairs. It was really a busy day.

Anyway, it’s going to start raining and I hope that it’ll be done soon. I have to get some things for Mama tonight. It’s her birthday.

Sunday, August 27, 2006

grrrr

I just don’t know. I’ve been to metal music for months (which I felt so tough) and for just a movie about love and relationships (View for the Top), I started to crumble down. I felt the empty, lonely person that I used to be.

*sigh. grrrrrr

Saturday, August 26, 2006

:) happy :)

Finally, I’m done with the tests. I just feel great about it. It’s easier than I thought. I’m just thankful to God’s grace. I asked and I received. He truly is GREAT, ALL THE TIME.

Anyway, tomorrow’s the new beginning. I’ll be playing Frisbee again. I haven’t been in the field for 3 weeks and I’m just excited. It’ll be a renewed love for the sport since I lost some of the fun I used to have.

I also have some archiving to do since I’m having a hard time in keeping the new mp3s that I have. A discography of Evergrey is already ready for my iPod and I just have to get them organized. Disk spaces are running out.

New Metallica songs?

The new Metallica album is expected to be out by summer or early fall of 2007. With the performance of their new songs at Seoul and Holland, I think it would be a good album.





I ‘m not expecting a Master Of Puppets type since James’ vocals has changed a lot and the creative process of the band has worked a little slower…as Lars told BBC Radio 1 recently.

With Rick Rubin replacing Bob Rock as producer, I’m just excited.

fixed

Sunday was a great day to fix all of my things. We have installed our new cabinet and dumped all of my stuff. It was practically a day’s work.

With all of the new arrangement, I am somewhat relieved. My own place is now clean. I also installed the speakers that Melanie gave me 3 months ago (the sweet Altec Lansing Speakers). Having it paired with my iPod or with my laptop, listening was more fun. Of course, having my rest with Children Of Bodom, Opeth and Dark Tranquility was sweet.

And now, I’m back to work. I think I’m having Blue Tuesday. I just miss my room.

...ear bleed


Opeth's The Grand Conjuration

My fascination with Scandinavian Metal started when I listened to Soilwork. (The band is great but they’ve softened their tunes on their latest releases).

After being tired with some American Metal bands, I shifted to European Metal bands to the fact of being the influence of the previous.

With Google, I started reading for some articles and eventually downloaded tons of albums which might help me get into them.

I got the albums of In Flames, Arch Enemy, Dark Tranquility, Opeth and Children Of Bodom. Listening to these bands just made me feel great. The music is great, powerful, progressive and very loud.

My iPod has to be reloaded with all of these as some of the tunes don’t make sense to me anymore. I have to remove some bands like Marilyn Manson (they’re starting to suck) and some alternative rock. This would be my haven for metal music.

Anyway, the list is growing. I’m getting some DragonForce, Evergrey, At The Gates, Meshuggah, Amon Amarth and Candlemass.

\m/

...rest day

I’m home and no work. I’m on dial-up, with 33.6 kbps connection; I just can’t get into some of the sites and mails.

My monitor is busted so I’m using my laptop. I have to wait until next week to have it fixed. I just miss my files on my desktop. I just want some of the tunes transferred to my iPod.

Yesterday, I was able to gather albums from A Life Once Lost, Children Of Bodom, DragonForce, In Flames, Opeth, Trivium, Unearth, Led Zeppelin, The Doors, Eric Johnson and a discography of Arch Enemy.

Having them on my iPod was a bit hard since I got lots of favorite tunes in it. I have to remove some and have to accommodate the new. I guess a 20 GB capacity isn’t enough for my Metal and Rock collection. How I wish I could get a terabyte of space just to get them all.

I’m just craving for more metal bands and I know I’ll have the chance of going to some of their concerts.

Up Dharma Down would be in Jack’s Ridge tomorrow. My Frisbee friends would be there and I’ll be somewhere. I’ve seen them on MTV Sessions and I don’t like their music.

Anyway, I’ll take my rest.

Happy Birthday, to me!!!

August 15, 2006, at about 10 PM, I got a message from Rocky, inviting me to get to Avenue S. We both have the same birthday so it would be nice to get through the last minutes of the 15th on the way to the 16th.

We just had some drinks and some Mexican food and talked foolish about life. It was fun being back to the place where I used to play and talk with friends. Anyway, we were all drunk as we celebrate it under the heavy rain.

I went home at about 2 AM and retired for the day’s activities. Since I availed my birthday leave, it was a good thing to stay on my bed a little longer. I just had pork and beans for breakfast and watched my favorite cartoons. It was really nice to watch Doraemon while sitting comfortably as I usually dress for my day’s work while watching.

It was also a good thing to answer all the greetings from my friends. They were all sweet. Thanks to (in order)

I also got my chance of having my monitor fixed by a friend.

I had lunch with myself and paid a visit to my favorite chapel, the Pauline’s, to give thanks to the Lord.

I also got to have my review and went with my mama to have some groceries.

8 PM and we were somewhat exhausted.

I even got a gift from Angel at 9 PM…so sweet.

Thank you Lord

...another mark

…And tomorrow’s another mark for me.

I just can’t imagine how my life has turned this way. I was somewhat passive about the change and so far, I’m happy with it.

I got a new job. I got new friends who are really great. I got my new sport which is Ultimate Frisbee and I got a special friend who’s always there for me. I know this is God’s will as I am in the process of going to a life that I know I’m destined to.

I’m just thankful for all the blessings God has given to us. He is truly the best.

Saturday, August 12, 2006

...relieved

At last, the data havoc that has plagued our office has finally settled.

It all started when an unknown error occurred during backup. I was in a Frisbee game while the user was trying to get help. It was way too late for me to get back from my geeky job so I decided to be early the next day.

I’ve been to situations like this but this has really confirmed my maturity in handling pressures. I was somewhat cool with it and it was well managed. I am relieved.

I’m just happy being back to the geek in me… Very fun and rewarding.

...through the fire and flames

I have so much for this day and it’s nice to see some great guitar work from one of my favorite bands. A great stress reliever.

"Mass" Destruction

I’m talking not as a priest but as a Board Member” – Fr. Paul (during his homily)

Well, it’s the first Saturday of the month and it’s our monthly mass at the 4th floor.

Having heard those words from a priest, without hesitation, I decided not to hear mass. It’s a common knowledge that he presides mass way beyond what we expect. With so much of ad-libs and in betweeners, I just can’t get into it. Mass has become his ground of his convenience. Where he attacks every subject he could think of...prolonging irrelevance and boredom. His analogies have become irrelevant to the gospel. Sometimes contradicts to his own. If he’s talking not as a priest, then why preside the mass? Are we supposed to hear it from a priest? Who gives homilies based on God’s knowledge and wisdom? And not making it an avenue of commentaries like having it in a Board Meeting.

Everything has its own time and place. Be it that way.

What supposed to have a peaceful mind after mass, everyone has turned into an impromptu commentator. What a way to live Christ after mass…

DragonForce

"While most bands want to be bigger than Metallica, DragonForce has the capability to be bigger than Star Wars." - Metal Hammer

I finally got my Dragonforce mp3s (Inhuman Rampage, Sonic Firestorm, Valley of the Damned Albums). This is so far my new love in Metal music. I first heard of them when I got Headbangers Ball: The Revenge. The track “Through the Fire and Flames” just blew me off. I even had it included in my “Jogging” playlist.

All of the instruments were skillfully integrated and I just love the feel of it. The vocals just reminds me of the 80s metal. This is really great.

I'm even recharged from blue hell fever and flu.

To check them out, visit DrangonForce

...back from fever and flu

Finally, I’m back from fever and flu. It was really a blue hell since Tuesday afternoon. My body has finally surrendered from all my activities. Imagine, for the last 6 weeks, I only have an average of 5 hours of sleep a day. *sigh. I just have to mellow out.

Tuesday was fine until I got shivers all over my body. My body ached like I was in a boxing match. I can’t lift my body and my eyes were teary devilish red.

The worst, I was tasked to get the Frisbees to Agro since our buddies with rides just can’t get early. *sigh. It was an agonizing walk from my office to Cesar’s place. No taxis available, just my shoes to help. What used to be a 5 min. walk, turned out to be 18 min.. I’m just glad that it’s easier to get available taxis at Cesar’s place.

I arrived early at Agro (4:50 PM), dragging the crate from the parking lot to the bamboo bleachers. Since everyone would be arriving late, I just slept comfortably on hard bamboo with my bag as a pillow. *sigh.

It was 5:30 PM when Jenny arrived. It was an answered prayer. I hurriedly went home to regenerate.

I also had a time out from office yesterday.

Thank God, I’m back.

Monday, July 24, 2006

...30 min ...yehey!!!

I finally got my 30 min mark. Instead of adding a song from Devil Driver (all of their songs didn’t meet 5 min which should be added to my 25.1 min mark), I added Metallica’s Battery on my “Jogging” playlist which ran 6 min plus *sigh. This is really getting into me and I hope to get the 1 hour mark soonies.

...jogging

My "Jogging" Playlist


As we try to build up our endurance for the Spirits, the STDs are jogging every training day, slowly adding more minutes to the program.

With the program that we had, I decided to be somewhat minutes ahead. At first, I jogged straight without stopping with Green Day’s Jesus of Suburbia. I almost didn’t finish the song as it was agonizing. I easily ran out of breath and my legs were getting the pains. But with consistency and the inspiration to the Spirits, I gradually built my endurance.

From Green Day’s 9:08 min. mark, I stepped up by making a “Jogging” playlist, adding a song every week. I started with an 18 min metal marathon. With songs from In Flames, Trivium, Spineshank, and Dragonforce, jogging has become a fun activity. I slowly built the endurance that I need. My lungs started to accommodate more air and my legs gaining some strength. I’m just happy getting through the process.

After a week, I added Disturbed’s Liberate and the following week, Lacuna Coil’s Our Truth…totting up to 25.1 min. Tomorrow afternoon, I’ll add another song. Maybe a song from Devil Driver would do.

As our training program’s objective to have a 45 min. jog straight without stopping, I hope I could get the 1 hour mark. Of course, with God’s guidance and mercy.

Japanese English Class

Very funny.

...ego go go go!!!

I just don’t get the thing about people aged 30 plus who still struggles to have their egos satisfied.

Having attended a business matching event with SMEs for IT solutions, my colleagues were given a chance to showcase each other’s company. We also had some petty talks along the way while waiting for our turns and that made rooms within the group of isolating the threats from the insecure.

I really don’t know if we were there as an ego ready to be drained by someone else’s ego or just a plain threat. I just can’t believe the smirk and the immaturity he had and I’m just glad I had the presence of mind to slap with funny and streetwise answers ready to smudge their grin. hehe

Well, it’s nice to have them… my source of entertainment. At least, they’re not extinct.

Monday, July 17, 2006

OMG!!!

Training for the Spirits is hard yet fun. We do some things beyond our skills but still find ways to laugh and enjoy. The STDs are slowly catching up to the things that we have discussed and we hope to do more on the following days.

We have to master our throws, catches, plays and defense. We also have to build up our endurance as we are going to face seasoned Frisbee addicts. (*sigh…It’s against 2 year plus veterans to the 3 month old struggling viruses) I just can’t imagine the messages that we got from Luan about the players she played with on the hat tournament at Fort. They are cross trained specimen ready to die for the disc. *sigh

OMG!!!

Saturday, July 15, 2006

...luan

Ultimate South Team Durian (Ultimate STD) has been one of the greatest things in my life. I have met friends whom I could say so honest, kind, fun and very down to earth. We have always been together in all of our things... the pickup games, beach tourney, hat tournament, gimiks, videoke, after pickup game movies, tossings, celebrating birthdays on the field and some beyond of our capacity activities just to find fun and sanity.

Since I joined last April 2, 2006, when I was invited by my high school friend Shercy to play with them, we have made an unwritten law of being there for each other. We just made things so effortless that it has become our life.



Some of our friends have left for studies or work but Roxanne is the one whom I’ll miss most. The office visits, jeepney rides, sensible non-sense conversations or corny knock-knock jokes would be marked in my memories…with backups.

So Roxanne, we’ll see each other at the “Spirits”. Be fine.

Monday, July 10, 2006

...water

I had a great time going around Samal Island with my officemates. It was really fun doing some kayaking and snorkeling. I hope to be back soonies.

...wow legs

Last night’s game was great until I felt something bad on my legs. I’m somewhat tired that I accidentally slipped while we had this jog around our turf. I don’t know but it was a challenge for me to play the game.

I’m just glad I woke up feeling better. I hope my legs would feel better.

Tuesday, July 04, 2006

...through the never

I’m somewhat done to almost anything in the office. I’m just here, pretending to be busy. With the laptop facing opposite to anybody, I can now browse and do something that might get my boredom out my way.

I had my iPod switched to Pinoy Rock… (Yes, I’m back to those days where I used to go on free concerts (thanks to NU 107). I have Wolfgang’s complete discography and some of Razorback’s tunes)…and established a face that would equate to a “Do Not Disturb” sign. So far, no one has tried getting through all the hell of me.

*sigh

Its still 1:24 PM and 5:00 PM is light years away. I can’t wait to have my cleats on to Frisbee. I missed some and I hope I could catch up. This is what I call “waits” (as for the gym term…taking “weights”)

Anyway, I just have to check some downloads. hehe

...from a Korean

I just got this one from a friend. (Never mind the grammar)

MY SHORT ESSAY ABOUT THE PHILIPPINES
Jaeyoun Kim

Filipinos always complain about the corruption in the Philippines. Do you really think the corruption is the problem of the Philippines? I do not think so. I strongly believe that the problem is the lack of love for the Philippines.

Let me first talk about my country, Korea. It might help you understand my point. After the Korean War, South Korea was one of the poorest countries in the world. Koreans had to start from scratch because entire country was destroyed after the Korean War, and we had no natural resources.

Koreans used to talk about the Philippines, for Filipinos were very rich in Asia. We envy Filipinos. Koreans really wanted to be well off like Filipinos. Many Koreans died of famine. My father & brother also died because of famine. Korean government was very corrupt and is still very corrupt beyond your imagination, but Korea was able to develop dramatically because Koreans really did their best for the common good with their heart burning with patriotism.

Koreans did not work just for themselves but also for their neighborhood and country. Education inspired young men with the spirit of patriotism. 40 years ago, President Park took over the government to reform Korea. He tried to borrow money from other countries, but it was not possible to get a loan and attract a foreign investment because the economic situation of South Korea was so bad. Korea had
only three factories. So, President Park sent many mine workers and nurses to Germany so that they could send money to Korea to build a factory. They had to go through horrible experience.

In 1964, President Park visited Germany to borrow money. Hundred of Koreans in Germany came to the airport to welcome him and cried there as they saw the President Park. They asked to him, \"President, when can we be well off?\" That was the only question everyone asked to him. President Park cried with them and promised them that Korea would be well off if everyone works hard for Korea, and the President of Germany got the strong impression on them and lent money to Korea. So, President Park was able to build many factories in Korea. He always asked Koreans to love their country from their heart.

Many Korean scientists and engineers in the USA came back to Korea to help developing country because they wanted their country to be well off. Though they received very small salary, they did their best for Korea. They always hoped that their children would live in well off country. My parents always brought me to the places where poor and physically handicapped people live. They wanted me to understand their life and help them. I also worked for Catholic Church when I was in the army. The only thing I learned from Catholic Church was that we have to love our neighborhood. And, I have loved my neighborhood. Have you cried for the Philippines? I have cried for my country several times. I also cried for the Philippines because of so many
poor people. I have been to the New Bilibid prison. What made me sad in the prison were the prisoners who do not have any love for their country. They go to mass and work for Church. They pray everyday.

However, they do not love the Philippines. I talked to two prisoners at the maximum-security compound, and both of them said that they would leave the Philippines right after they are released from the prison. They said that they would start a new life in other countries and never come back to the Philippines.

Many Koreans have a great love for Korea so that we were able to share our wealth with our neighborhood. The owners of factory and company were distributed their profit to their employees fairly so that employees could buy what they needed and saved money for the
future and their children.

When I was in Korea, I had a very strong faith and wanted to be a priest. However, when I came to the Philippines, I completely lost my faith. I was very confused when I saw many unbelievable situations in the Philippines. Street kids always make me sad, and I see them everyday. The Philippines is the only Catholic country in Asia, but there are too many poor people here. People go to church every Sunday to pray, but nothing has been changed.

My parents came to the Philippines last week and saw this situation. They told me that Korea was much poorer than the present Philippines when they were young. They are so sorry that there are so many beggars and street kids. When we went to Pasangjan,
I forced my parents to take a boat because it would fun. However, they were not happy after taking a boat. They said that they would not take the boat again because they were sympathized the boatmen, for the boatmen were very poor and had a small frame. Most of people just took a boat and enjoyed it. But, my parents did not enjoy it because of love for them.

My mother who has been working for Catholic Church since I was very young told me that if we just go to mass without changing ourselves, we are not Catholic indeed. Faith should come with action. She added that I have to love Filipinos and do good things
for them because all of us are same and have received a great love from God. I want Filipinos to love their neighborhood and country as much as they love God so that the Philippines will be well off.

I am sure that love is the keyword, which Filipinos should remember. We cannot change the sinful structure at once. It should start from person. Love must start in everybody, in a small scale and have to grow. A lot of things happen if we open up to love. Let's put away
our prejudices and look at our worries with our new eyes.

I discover that every person is worthy to be loved. Trust in love, because it makes changes possible. Love changes you and me. It changes people, contexts and relationships. It changes the world. Please love your neighborhood and country.

Jesus Christ said that whatever we do to others we do to Him. In the Philippines, there is God for people who are abused and abandoned. There is God who is crying for love. If you have a child, teach them how to love the Philippines. Teach them why they have to love their neighborhood and country. You already know that God also will be very happy if you love others.
That's all I really want to ask you Filipinos.

...arghhhh

It's been a tedious pursuit of switching between identities. Being son, a
brother to my siblings, a substitute father to my family, a Frisbee player
or a lab rat, just made my life somewhat complicated.

For the past days, I really had a hard time juggling between tasks. I did
some workarounds for the inventory, I did the grocery and I had the training
that we have formulated for the spirits (though I missed some). I also paid
the tuition and took my mother for a date. All of them just required my
100% attention.

But anyway, I'm slowly getting to the idea of being reactive and things are
somewhat getting into its places. I know this week would again be busy and
I hope everything would be alright.

Lex Luthor is DUMB

Even though I love the movie, I have some thoughts on the things being done on the film.

On the scene that Lex Luthor is again doing a land grab…where he would make a continent out of the crystals that he had from the Fortress of Solitude…where people would pay a fortune out of his genius.

Hmmmmm!!! If he’ll kill billions as what he claimed with his conversation with Lois, who will purchase his idea? Again, Lex has never thought about that.

Superman is REALLY BACK!!!

Finally, Superman is back. I was able to watch the movie last night at NCCC Cinema 2 at its 7:25 PM slot. I was very excited that I hurriedly went out from to office to get our seats. Luckily, we were able to secure slots.

The movie started with its casts showed much like in Superman 1 to 4. Much has improved. The graphics was updated. The music is still the same but it’s really different when you’re in a Dolby surround theater than having it on iPod. The experience was nostalgic. I can still remember in my younger years where I used to watch it with my auntie and uncle on Betamax. How I wish they’re with me experiencing the comeback of Superman.

19 years was really worth the wait. Even though I like the idea of bringing Christopher Reeve to the screen, I never missed him. Brandon Routh was really fit for the role. This mild mannered young actor from Iowa has the qualities that would really be called inherent of him. The idea of Singer to cast an unknown actor really had paid the years of waiting. This has really established him as a great director. Much as what he has done with Hugh Jackman as Wolverine. And with Brandon Routh, he truly has secured the spot as Superman. He’ll truly be remembered as the Man of Steel for his lifetime. The way he spoke and the way he was as Clark Kent, as Kal-El and as Superman.

And Kevin Spacey, well, I expected him as the Lex Luthor who evolved from the Smallville series. The movie was true to its predecessors. The Lex Luthor who is somewhat evil yet funny. Much like Gene Hackman did to the character. At least, not like Mr. Hackman who wore toupee 99% of the movie, Mr. Spacey was bald. He almost resembles Michael Rosenbaum, the Lex Luthor of Smallville.

I’m just happy to watch the movie. I can’t help but get teary eyed on the airplane scene. I was truly at awe. It was really perfect. Superman has truly come back. Not just in the movies but brought my childhood back. I’m still getting goose bumps as of this time.

I’m going to watch it again.

Tuesday, June 27, 2006

...few hours to Superman Returns

Few hours left and Superman will fly again. I’m expecting a Superman that’s not Christopher Reeves. The mild mannered reporter that he was, I hope, it’ll just leave Mr. Reeve as he was and spawn a new breed of Superman. Unique and special as the most loved superhero.

Well, having seen X-Men 1 and 2, I hope Bryan Singer will do justice to Superman. The wisdom that he has when he listed Hugh Jackman as Wolverine would be seen here as Brandon Routh wears the red cape.

I’m just excited.

Monday, June 26, 2006

...narcissistic

I’m starting to hate what I used to like.

Why do some people have this overpowered vanity? Who tends to project an image that they’re so tired yet shoots us with a “pa-cute” face just to have that “Effortlessly Beautiful” facade?

Well, she’s annoys each one of us. When in blue hell will she realize that she’s not that cute?

...getting to Superman 5

.."gods are selfish beings who fly around in little red capes and don’t share their power with mankind." – Lex Luthor



I began reviewing Superman 1 to 4 to get into Superman 5. I also had my cellphone and laptop changed to Superman ‘s theme. I’m just excited getting into the movie.

Well, I’m expecting a Lex Luthor that has evolved from Smallville Series. With Kevin Spacey as Lex, I think he’ll get to be the best Lex. Superman 1 to 4’s Lex has Gene Hackman being somewhat psychotic yet funny. With the trailers that I saw, I think, it’ll be a different Lex around.

Anyway, two more days and Superman will be flying again.

Road to Spirits

This is getting into our nerves. The STDs have finally met to discuss things for the training. We had it at McDo last night and so far, we are on the right path.

Since we don’t have the coach that we would be licking his ass, we have to formulate goals and from it, generate things to do for the training. Everything has to be done first time and fine tuning would be the thing for us on the road to the Spirits.

As of this time, I’m trying to squeeze some ideas for the collaboration on the group’s training program. I’m just glad that the people behind the team are very positive. We just hope to do it on time, in sync to what an Ultimate player should be and experience fun as we always had it.

Doraemon



I’m somewhat getting “late” to the office because Doraemon is shown at 9 am. I just love it and I hope I could get some copies of the episodes.

I just had my cellphone customized with Doraemon. The wallpaper and the ringtone just had the feel for it. I’m so happy.

Doraemon!!!
