Rakrakan on October!

Finally it’s almost October and the youth, the screaming, drinking, wasted youth is about to hit the streets again. Oktoberfest is here for all of you gimikeros and gimikeras out there! Get your drinking talent to the challenge again because October is a month where we adore a whole lot of barrels and bottles of beer.

So what else is there aside from Octoberfest? Of course there’s halloween and I’m sure and I’ll be betting my ass that ABS-CBN will again air another scary episode of ghost hauntings. Same old stuff. i wish they would air some band or something or whatever.

The said events above are nothing compared to the newly discovered event. It’s called the Rakrakan Club Tour. The tour will be headed by the army of Ian Tayao, Queso! They will be joined by Typecast and some new promising acts like EyeScream, which I’m proud to say that Epoy, their vocalist is one of my buddies. I know you don’t care but who cares. Rakrakan Tour will also be joined by Blues Bands like SNAKECHARMER, KULUKATI, FIRE BOTTLE, DAHON, PLUGCOSMIC LOVE, and MIKE’S APARTMENT(This sounds like porn to me). Well any way to make this shorter go ahead and click through here to see the complete schedule for the Rakrakan Tour!


Doodle: The art of digital drawing

It’s the year 2006 and everything in this world seems to be like connected to each other. Well, digitally, I mean. Who doesn’t use an instant messenger nowadays? I guess everyone has a Yahoo, ICQ, AOL or MSN account. Even my niece who is just 10 years old has a Yahoo Messenger account. I don’t remember having one as I was a kid. Everything seems to be quite so complicated right now. I mean one can’t live without logging in to his or her Messenger everyday. Well, I must confess that I’m always online everyday.It’s because I need it on my current work. It’s funny though that in the office, we are in the same small room but the way we communicate or talk is through Yahoo Messenger. It’s like an essential part of our work. It’s a privelege but sometimes Online Messengers get annoying.

Doodlin RigsIf for example you are busy doing something the somebody buzzes you while you are in the middle of doing your masterpiece, your momentum for your masterpiece suddenly drops down. Well, it doesn’t happen to me occasionally but it does sometimes. Actually I’ve got a lot of messengers in my office PC. I’ve got MSN, Gtalk, ICQ and Yahoo Messenger. I know that there’s a software out there to handle all these Online messengers but I don’t use it. It’s not like the “real” thing. But I’ve tried it. If you wanna try it then go check it out. It’s called Trillian. It’s like an online messenger that has all the popular online messengers in it. But like I said it’s not like the real thing. Or maybe you could use . It’s like a messenger inside your browser. You need Javascript activated on your browser though to use it. It uses AJAX.  All these muti-messengers I’ve mentioned are good but using separate Messengers is really different. What I mean here is that you cannot use IMVironments on Trillain or Meebo so it’s really different. Not that I’m an IMVironment addict or something but I actually use it. One of the most IMVironments I use is Doodle. I’m sure you’ve used it if you are a Yahoo Messenger addict.

Doodle is like a sketchpad or something, and both parties having conversation can actually draw in this “sketchpad” in realtime. That’s cool and it’s not something new. Well to feed my addiction, I made a blog in blogger, that features all my Doodles. You can check out my Instant Doodle page now. What I do is I draw something and hit the “print screen” button, crop it then voila! A masterpiece.

Now go and check all my Doodles and be sure to leave your comments. And yeah we can Doodle with each other if you want. My Yahoo Messenger handler is fatfingur. Just send me an instant message and no chatters please, just doodlers. LOL

Destroy the World in Ten Easy Steps

Have you ever been pissed so bad in your life that you wanted to take the gun and shoot everyone you meet? Or have you ever been so happy in your life that you got so mad and you wanted to destroy the world?

Well, my good friend Joubert just sent me links of some articles on how to destroy the world. I wanted to try these things my self but I guess it’s just too dangerous.

There’s an article here on how to create your own home made bomb from batteries. Yeah, you could be a terrorist yourself. Maybe when you get pissed-off, try making a bomb and let it explode in your own room. That way, you get rid of your misery. Or if you want to bring others with you to your grave, send a bomb in populated areas, the mall or the MRT station.

Or be the bomb! Remove your clothes and run on the street shouting “fatfingur rules!” or “i want to be the president!

If you want mass destruction and you want to take the whole country down with you, make an atom bomb. Yeah, take everyone else with you.

*I don’t support terrorism
