Fete de la Musique at Mall of Asia

For all ye music lovers out there, if you wanna see a lot of bands today – June 30, 2006, head to Mall of Asia for the Annual Fete de la Musique event.

Born in Paris in 1982, Fête de la Musique is now a major event in more than 100 countries throughout five continents. Celebrated on the first day of summer, the longest day of the year, the festival has taken root throughout Europe, in Miami, San Francisco, New York, Manila, across Brazil and Colombia, and has become a national festival in many African countries.

You would notice a lot of Indie Bands are gonna be there so go hang out at the Mall of Asia and if you get tired of listening to the bands, go see Superman Returns on iMax. Or drop by at the nearest Comic Book Store and grab your copy of Amazing Spider-Man #533. Amazing Spiderman #533 is a tie in of the Civil War series. On Civil War #2, Spider-Man unmasked and the whole world was shocked. Here in ASM #533 issue, you would see the effects of the Spider-Man revealing his true identity to the world. If you would wanna know more about it check out the whole story on the unofficial Civil War blog.

In the hunt for Amazing Spider-Man #531

Finally, I have in my hands Amazing Spider-Man issues #529 and #530. I'm lucky to have these issues because they were the last copies. I bought them at Comic Quest SM City North Edsa. I am still looking for Amazing Spider-Man issue #531. Well this three part issue has something to do about the Civil War series and SpiderMan's new costume.
Spider-Man's Iron Man CostumeSpider-Man's new costume may look a bit like Iron Man's armor. The reason behind this is because Iron Man created it for Peter Parker. So what are the features of the web-slinger's new costume? Well, it has many amazing add-ons. With the new costume, Spider-man can glide through the air for a certain time.The new optical lenses has the zoom ability and even an x-ray vision. Also, Spider-Man can control the appearance of his costume using nano-technology which means he can change his look to his old costume or even his alien symbiote costume. He can also blend with the dark background like a chameleon. All he has to do is think. Totally cool for a costume. But will this really help him now that the whole world knows his real identity?

Let's find out on the next issue, Amazing Spider-Man #533. I can't wait to get my hands on the next issues of Civil War!

Hey I'm still looking for a copy of Wolverine #42. Help me. I will buy it from you!

Who has seen Wolverine # 42!

Guys! Someone please help me. I've got a very big problem. You see, I've been to SM North EDSA all the way to MEGAMALL in search of one true happiness – Wolverine #42. I went to all the comic book stores and I can't find this precious Wolverine #42 issue. Someone please help me. If any of you comic book collectors out there has this copy, I'm willing to buy it for twice or 3x the price. Or you can name your price.

People playing with fire Part 2Meanwhile, I've grabbed the Civil War issue #2 and guess what just did happen? Superhuman beings and mutants were being captured by S.H.I.E.L.D. soldiers. At the very last pages, Spiderman has revealed the press and the whole ignorant world his real identity. On Amazing Spiderman issue #432, you can find out what made Spiderman reveal his true identity. I also have the Civil war Fronting Line Issue # 1 and in there, you'll find out that Iron Man has also revealed his true identity in front of the Press and the whole world and it happened before Spiderman removed his mask. At the last pages of the comic book, you will also find out that Speedball, survived the blast Nitro created. But that's not all, I've also found out that Nick Fury, former head of S.H.I.E.L.D., has disappeared too and joined the anti-superhuman registration act the U.S. government has proposed.

Also do check out the Amazing fire photography technique, me and my housemates have made. 

Thanks and I hope somebody out there can help me.

Whose Side Are You On?

I have no posts for the last five days. Well what the hell happened?

This week has been a very long week for me. I've been busy at work and my life. I'm making something about my life. I mean, I'm not getting any younger, I'm getting older. I've finally overcome a tragedy that came into my life and I've just realized that I have to move on and keep on living… this time for the better.

Enough of this baloney.

Have you guys heard about Marvel Comic's latest series? Yeah it's Civil War. I've just bought the first issue yesterday at Comic Quest. And hey, when you buy the first issue, the guys at comic quest will give you a Civil War card. The first circle on the card will be marked and signed by the seller. You have to complete the seven issues and have it marked and signed by any Comic Quest personnel. When you complete all the seven issues, you will receive a free comic book. Cool!

Let's get back to Civil War.

The Amazing Spiderman 532The series will center upon a newly enacted Super-human Registration Act, an act which splits notable superheroes within the Marvel Universe. This will result in two super-powered factions forming, and will build to the titular Civil War, into which themes from current events will be woven, although writer Mark Millar has noted "The political allegory is only for those that are politically aware. Kids are going to read it and just see a big superhero fight."

I've also bought the Amazing SpiderMan Issue # 532, "THE WAR AT HOME" Part 1 (of 7) CIVIL WAR TIE-IN. Well here is the summary. This isn't even a spoiler. You really have to buy the comics if you wanna enjoy this. After rushing to the aftermath of the Riverbank Massacre to offer aid to its victims, Peter travels with Tony Stark to Washington DC and the White House, where the enactment of the Super Hero Registration Act appears imminent. As the Marvel Universe braces for the implications of legislation that will forever change the societal status of super heroes, Peter will have to make a very important personal decision — one that just might be the most important decision of his life.

Oh, I gotta go to sleep. Thanks for reading guys.
