News says Private Downloads Will be Monitored by Mr. Papaya

I was watching the local news last night I think when I heard that Edu Manzano and his cohorts are cooking some law that would make private downloads illegal. It means that all private downloads will be monitored and you may be sued if you are downloading pirated stuff.

My reaction? I just laughed in front of the TV. How in the world will they do that? And even if they were successful wouldn’t that be invasion of privacy? I mean this guy’s really not thinking at all. He’s just saying things that would make him look good in front of the people. He couldn’t even handle the piracy problem – the illegal DVDs and CDs. So why the hell should we believe this crap? This guy is pretentious. He should just stick with his stupid papaya dance step and entertain people.

A Review: My Chemical Romance at The Fort

I just came home from the My Chemical Romance rock concert at The Fort and they were really awesome. They really rocked my brains out. They were great. Gerard was hitting the high notes. Frank Iero was rockin the guitar. Ray Toro was showing off his killer guitar licks. Mikey Way was great and Bob Briar has cool long hair now.

I’m still in the state of shock right up to now. I can’t believe I finally saw the band play live. I was like more than a hundred meters away but I don’t care as long as I can hear them do their stuff. I’m really a big fan of MCR. In fact when I was still in a band about 2 years ago, we were playing their songs. It really feels great to see them in person.

Before My Chemical Romance showed up on stage, Pop Shove It opened the show for them. After the opening act was finished rocking their set, we waited for half an hour. Minutes seemed like days. But suddenly the lights turned off. When the lights was turned on, MCR was at the stage. Amazing!

My Chemical Romance played a total of 20 songs and there are some new songs that I heard only on that concert. Here’s the list of the line-up in exact order:

  1. Disappear
  2. Dead
  3. I’m Not Okay (I Promise)
  4. Give ‘Em Hell Kid
  5. Sharpest Lives
  6. Mama
  7. My Way Home Is Through You
  8. Cemetery Drive
  9. Black Parade
  10. I Don’t Love You
  11. Headfirst for Halos
  12. House of Wolves
  13. Kill All Your Friends – A song from their B-sides
  14. You Know What They Do to Guys Like Us in Prison
  15. Teenagers
  16. Helena
  17. Sleep
  18. Cancer
  19. Desert Song
  20. Famous Last Words

Gerard Way is really a great singer. In between one of the songs, I think he was singing a song from Freddie Mercury, the main man of Queen. Gerard is great. The whole band is great.

One thing I observed though, I think the band was disappointed at the way the people acted in front. I saw it in Gerard’s face, the way he acted when he left the stage. There wasn’t a smile on his face or a sign that he wanted to play here in the Philippines again. I really think he was shocked seeing the people in front of him dressed like they were going to some dance club or something. This is a rock show and not some disco club. I also can’t believe that there were chairs. I just thought to myself, “What the Fuck? Why are there chairs in the open field? This is a fucking god damn rock concert! And why are there 5 year old kids accompanied by their parents?” I even saw a whole family come to the show -a kid accompanied by his mom and dad. This isn’t a fuckin’ cartoon movie or something. Do the kids even understand the songs of My Chemical Romance? The big question is why did the organizer let those 5, those 10-year old kids into the concert. Gerard Way was cursing in front and there are many kids among the audience, 10 year old kids. The organizers should have known that. Haven’t they researched about the band? Kids should n’t be in there. Another funny thing is, I even heard somebody telling he saw Manny Pacquiao attend the concert. And it was confirmed to be true. Kin ( a friend of mine) also saw Anne Curtis dressed as a gothic girl. This isn’t good. This is funny. The organizers bailed. But I’m still thankful they brought the band here.

For sure, the band will never return here again. I hope that’s a lesson the pinoy should know. No more rich people in front, and the real fans at the back. Everybody should have equal opportunity – first come, first served. And there should only be one ticket price. But hell, this is Philippines – a country you will never understand. It all starts with great leaders.

I have some photos from the concert but I can’t find my USB transfer Cable. I guess I’ll have to post it here later.

Bluetooth Saves

I was on my way home last Tuesday night. The bus had only four passengers, 3 guys (including me) and a girl. I was seated on the front row seat of the bus beside the window. On the opposite side was this pretty girl. She was like 4 feet away from me. I was glancing at her pretty face and I think she caught me looking at her. I wanted to get her name but I was a little bit shy. I didn’t know how to get to know her so I thought of some way to get her name. Then I saw a phone in her hands. I was sure her phone is bluetooth-enabled. So I took my phone out of my pocket, activated my bluetooth and started searching for her device if it was bluetooth-active. To my surprise, it was but when i saw her device name, that was when I stopped hoping. Guess what name appeard on the list of active bluetooth devices, No_bf_no_problem. I was sure it was hers.

I laughed my ass off to myself that night. The lesson is, learn to take advantage of the technology today. Or better yet, take a nap when you’re in a bus and stop glancing at pretty chicks you big loser.

BAd Congress

Tomorrow I’ll be going to the Ad Congress at Subic. I don’t know what the hell I’ll be doing there. Maybe I’ll just sit there and watch the people talk or should I be learning something new? Well I really have no idea.

The Ad Congress started on Wednesday and I know I missed the fun already. But what the hell, going there is not part of my plan anyway. I’m going there because my bosses told me so. I’m going there because I don’t want to stay at the office for work. I know I’m not gonna have some fun but what the heck, I’ll be bringing my PSP with me to keep me company.

I’m wondering if there will be any congressmans there. See ya.

Boring Boxing

I saw the boxing fight between Manny Pacquiao and Marco Barrera yesterday. All I could say about the fight is that it was boring. If Marco Barrera was really to avenge his fellow Mexican boxers then why is he even afraid to give a punch. All he was doing all the time was defending. And he also gave that cheap shot while the referee was breaking them(both fighters) down.

Pacquiao  on the other hand gave a good fight although I really find him very funny . If you listened carefully to the interview after the fight, his answers was very irrelevant to the questions.

The Coconut Milk Order

My friend, Zell and I went to the canteen to have lunch. There were these two guys, and I think they’re both gay who were on the line and they can’t fucking decide what they’re gonna eat. They were asking the lady at the food counter if the chicken had coconut milk on it. I can’t help but notice the disappointment on their faces when the lady said there was none. Now why are these two fucking faggots looking for coconut milk? What’s with coconut milk? Then suddenly it hit me. They were looking for something to eat that looks like semen. I told Zell about it and when the two faggots left we were laughing. I’m really a good person but the next time I see faggots messing around like that I’m gonna kick their fucking asses off.

Did you know that 30% of the men who goes to the gym are gay? Well, that was according to Zell. So why do fucking fags go to the gym? The answer is obvious. Of course they want to meet guys. Makati is infested with fags. And most of these fags are good looking men. Well I think that’s good. It eliminates the competition. It increases the chance of getting those hot chicks.

Wishful thinking.

Superbad

After becoming productive and finishing a WordPress theme I watched Superbad. This is the time for slacking. What is it you say? According to Wikipedia, Superbad is a 2007 comedy film written by Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg. The film is directed by former television director Greg Mottola and is produced by Judd Apatow, previously known for directing The 40-Year-Old Virgin and Knocked Up. Did you like the definition? Well I sure hope you did.

Before I continue, let me tell you that this post may contain a few spoilers. But it doesn’t matter, you’ll have to watch it anyway.

Superbad is not yet released here in the Philippines but I managed to download it yesterday from one of the torrent sites. It is a funny film actually. The story is about two senior highschool best friends Evan (Michael Cera) and Seth (Jonah Hill), who tries to get girlfriends before the summer ends. You’ll be shown some illustrations of “dicks” drawn by the young Seth in different forms and shapes. You’ll also meet Fogell (Christopher Mintz-Plasse), a funny geek kid who shows his fake ID to Seth and Evan with the name of McLovin. He’ll team up with two funny reckless cops to destroy a police car. Well, enough said. I surely enjoyed the movie but the ending was a little bit odd. I really think that the two main characters were gay. Better watch the movie if you wanna know why.

Superbad will be shown in the Philippines on October 24.
