"Coochie coochie coo. Oh my, what a cute puppy. Can I hold him?"
"Sure, go ahead."
"Ouch! He bit me! This damn dog bit my hand! I'm gonna fuckin kill this mutherfuckin dog!"
"I'm gonna kill you too if you try to stop me. Now give me my fuckin' gun."
"Don't shoot the puppy!"
"Oh no, what have I done, I killed the puppy… No, I've killed you both. Now I've got rabies. I might as well shoot myself too…"
Do you think you're patient enough not to move the fuckin' mouse? I don't think so. I bet you a million bucks on the first try you won't even last 1 second.
You will need a flash player.
Yesterday, I dropped by a drugstore to buy me some multivitamins. It's been quite sometime since I stopped taking them and I felt, you know, exhausted all the time. I really need the pills right now coz there's a lot of things I wanna do and it's like I'm always getting low of energy at the end of the day. It's like I wake up in the morning, I'll take a bath, I'll change my clothes and then I go to work. Then when I'm at the office, I sit in front of the PC moitor and work all day. When evening comes, I check my energy level and it's already running out.
I wish I'm a robot. But robot's need batteries too, right? I wish I'm a robot with unlimited energy then.
I don't want to be a robot who relies on solar energy coz what would happen when the sun sets?
I don't wanna be a robot who eats up gasoline for energy because as we all know, the cost of gasoline is very high. Thanks to the generous gasoline companies.
I don't wanna be a robot whose source of energy is electricity because like gasoline, it's suicide.
I want to be a robot whose batteries are hate, greed, anger and all the negative emotions, because that's what the world has right now. Negative emotions are everywhere and when you choose them as source then you'll be charged with overflowing energy you might even turn into some superhero.
Like superman. Or like an addict overdosed with methamphetamine he doesn't feel hunger or sleepiness.
I'll just take my vitamins anyway.
I just came from the iBlog2 summit awhile ago. It was held in UP Diliman College of Law building. The event was between 9 AM to 5 PM. There were a lot of participants who attended. Most of them obviously are bloggers. I'm not really a blogger but I was sent by my boss with two of my officemates, Reg, a writer and Ed, a programmer to listen and hopefully learn something from the event. Yeah I've learned something alright. Actually, to be honest, I've really learned many things. I've learned that blogs are important for some people. Let's take for example the Iranian and Chinese bloggers. Blogs are one way for them to express or tell facts of their experiences in life. Blogs also can give us stories and news and journalist don't have access to. It's one way of communicating and a form of open journalism which the reader can comment on the writngs either negatively or positively.
Generally, I've really learned about a lot of things that I can't really discuss right now. Why? Because I'm tired and I can't think straight. I just wish I'm a robot so I could do things tirelessly but then again I just wish you've been there so I don't really have to actually tell you those things by myself. Hahaha. Actually it's really cool to learn many things today. It's like I'm inspired to blog until I the day I can't type with a keyboard anymore. Not that my hands will be cut off in the future. 🙂
There is one important thing I learned though. If you are sitting next to a pretty girl and you know she's a blogger, you should be brave enough to talk to her about things like blogging and ask her if you can take her photo. Why? So you won't regret it when she walks away without getting her name and number. Well, that's one lesson I really gotta learn. I was sitting next to a pretty girl on the summit and man, I really have the hots for her. (I took a stolen shot of her anyway. I just cropped this one so it's kinda blurry. Well here she is.)The problem is I'm too afraid to utter even a "hi". I was afraid that I might pee in my pants. Not really. I think I was just being faithful to my girl. (I hope she's reading this.)
To sum it up, the blogging summit was really a great experience for me. The food was great and it was FREE. The words of the speakers and everyone who shared their opinions really struck my mind. No thanks to some of the speakers who talked like a music box, I almost fell asleep. And yeah, I've got some words to share to you form Dean Alfar, one of the best speakers, "Do note fear tomorrow!" Figure that out!
Thanks to devoted Filipino Catholics, the next four fuckin days will be my chance to rest and do some of my personal stuff. There will be no work! Did ya read that? There’s no work tomorrow, and the tomorrow after, and the day after tomorrow after tomorrow – until Sunday. Of course I have no work on Saturdays and Sundays.
Yeah, I’ll be going back to my hometown , Metro La Union. I’ll probably still be busy. I’ll be working on some personal stuff and some things with my band. I think we’ll be having a gig on Saturday night, probably at Zigzag. It’s located at the top of San Fernando, La Union. We’ll be having a one hour set full of screamo music. I’m inviting everyone who knows the place and who lives in La union to come and see us. I promise you it will be a very nice gig.
I’ve also updated my Multiply page and just in case you wanna know how I look like, my picture is posted there.
This is the end of this post, so you people out there, enjoy your 4-day vacation! Don’t dig your toes too deep in the sand and don’t drink too much alcohol. See you at the shores!

I will be there. See you guys!
I Just arrived from Liwasang Bonifacio to witness the Whoops Battle of the bands finals. I was there to take pictures for Eye Scream, a promising new band from Nueva Ecija, who happens to be recording recently at SoundWeavers, a recording studio located at Pasong Tamo. I was tagged my boss to come along and take live pictures of the band.
Well, before we went to the contest venue, Rigs (my officemate) and I, walked all the way from our office at Rufino Building to Cityland at Pasong Tamo. We decided to walk because the fuckin taxi drivers were choosing passengers they want to ride on their taxi. It's not that we look scary but the fact is, those damn taxi drivers are very choosy and they don't want passengers who may have very far destinations. Oh well that's how stupid they are.
Back to the contest – I was taking photos of the band and I went in front of the stage not knowing that you need an I.D. to come in. Well, I got a few rounds of shots before they realized I don't have any I.D. on me. Some bouncer told drove me out of the stage. It's ok coz' I have already taken great shots. I wish I could post them here in the future. Watching those bands play makes me really miss my band. I mean, I miss playing in front of wild people. I miss the sweat and the fun onstage. Gee, I should re-group my band. It's not that my band is disbanded but we are separated by distance. Well, anyway, I know that we'll be playing again together soon. I just wish for that.
Tomorrow, or later, my girlfriend and I will be buying a new digital camera. Yeah! We're going to buy the Kodak C330 digital Camera. I'll be posting cool pictures here soon. I wanna be a photographer!
I'm getting sleepy. So folks, good night! And oh, I forgot to mention the results of the contest. Well here thay are, …I forgot. Eye Scream didn't make it to the top 3 but I swear they're really good. Wait for their first song on the radio, soon!
