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.

Rip-Offs: An Infectious Bad Habit

Rounin’s logo is a rip-off

I know I should have blogged this long ago but hey, it’s never too late.

Has anyone seen Rounin? It’s an ABS-CBN show which they call a tele-epiko (where do they get those weird names) that ended a month ago, I think. I saw it on TV a month ago and I noticed something fishy about the logo. As a comic book fan, I’m really familiar with the logos of comic book titles. I noticed the R on Rounin as somewhat identical to one of the comics I saw while I was in highschool. It looks like the logo of Shaman’s Tears, an Image comic release. You can see the similarity on this photo that I’ve put up. Well, it’s for you to judge.

This may not be new among Filipinos, but ripping off logos ,titles and movies has become a very bad habit of Filipinos. I always read on articles, blogs, newspapers that the Filipino is globally competitive but is it really true? Well, I really believe that there are really good Filipino designers out there, but aren’t really recognized. Are Filipino’s incapable of creating a unique concept? I think not. The problem is the Filipino is afraid to try something different. That’s why he rips off.

But then again there are still those who stay true to themselves. those are the true Filipino designers. I hate rip-offs.

I’m No StarStruck Fan but I love Kris Bernal

Yeah, you’ve read the title right. I love Kris Bernal. My friend Robert told me he’s seen this pretty lady before she’s even joined StarStruck. Robert showed me photos of Kris from friendster and I was struck. She’s cute so I made a vector cartoon art of her face. I know I’m not gonna be able to meet her or talk to her. So what? I’ve got her photo. Well here she is in vector!

Kris Bernal

If you’re gonna download this photo, feel free to do so but please don’t modify it. I spent more than 3 hours making this so the artwork deserves some respect and credit. Thanks.

Blast Beat

Last Saturday, I was sent by my boss to Sound Weavers Recording Studio, his studio located in Pasong Tamo, to assist my hometown buddy Monmon in the recording of two bands Final Vow and End This Day.

Recording sessions are exciting but tiring. Your whole body gets tired and your ears bleed – well, it depends. It was freezing inside the studio. Well sort of. It was 17 degrees inside the main control room. I was there to help Mon fix and set-up cables. The studio is Protools-based which means the music tracks are mixed using a computer, preferrably with a Mac which works faster than PC in terms of audio editing and rendering. I used to experiment with music, and record my band’s own songs. That was before I got a job in Makati as a Web Designer. I was using Adobe Audition 1.5 (the former Cool Edit Software) which was cheaper and works like Protools. You can’t use Protools with the software alone. You must at least purchase an MBox, Digi 002, or Audiomedia soundcard – these are the Protools hardwares. Recording is easier now and cheaper than before because it’s digital and you can do it at the comfort of your own room and home PCs. But having a sound-mixing software isn’t enough to make you a sound engineer. You must have the ear for music, the talent and of course your own music.

Well anyway, after the recording, Mon and I went straight to Saguijo, again. On our way there, we saw a stupid guy punching his girlfriend like she was some kind of punching bag. We could’ve helped the girl if we weren’t riding a taxi. When we reached the place, we saw Buddy Zabala and Raymund Marasigan outside If we were earlier we could’ve seen Cambio, Happy Meals, Twisted Halo and Day One Movement. Sugarfree was on stage when we arrived. Yeah. Ebe, the band’s main man was drunk again. Kjwan was next and the last band to perform. I didn’t really see them because the place was too crowded. I didn’t even had a chance to go inside. Well, just like what I’ve said before, the place is small. So we just sat outside and ordered my favorite pulutan – sisig. I saw a lot of personalities that night (including myself) like the infamous Sib from Jack TV (his new show The Jack Yard). The fat lady designer who got sick and was evicted from PBB was there too. I don’t know her name.

We emptied 5 bottles of hard beer each. We left the place and waited for a cab. I went home slightly intoxicated and went straight to sleep.

NU Rock Awards 2006 (este 2005 pala) on MYX

I just watched the recent NU Rock awards on MYX and I didn’t like how they captured the event. I mean the sound you hear from the TV is very lame. I can’t even hear the guitar and sometimes I can’t hear the bass. Is that how poor Pinoy technology is?

Well look. MYX is a music channel and they can’t even give the viewers a real “musical” sound. I mean they should have used mixers or equalizers in capturing the musical event. Well what the heck. Anyway here’s how they showed it on TV.

Bamboo opened the event with their anthemic “halleluiah”. Yeah as usual Bamboo made a lively opening act again. I don’t know who came up next but anyway here’s what I remember. Imago’s Aia de Leon didn’t play her guitar but instead she went onstage like a rockstar and made that embarassing dancesteps in fron of the camera. I was an Aia fan beforeshe made those embarrassing dance steps. Yael Yuson of Sponge Cola won the Best Male award. What the heck is that award? I think Yael Yuson was awarded by DJ Joey(?) and Cheska Garcia. Cheska even announced that Steven Tyler was his favorite rock icon but when the fat lady asked her about what she thinks about Chris Cornell, you know what Cheska Garcia said? “Habang may buhay?”. Dumb ass. Maybe she’s referring to Wency Cornejo. Does it sound like Chris Cornell?

Mig Ayesa was on the show too. He was accompanied by the great Buddy Zabala, the short Mr.-Guitar-Know-it-All NU DJ Francis Reyes and Dawn’s Drummer(forgot what his name was). I think I saw Urbandub but MYX had to cut their song early. Stupid mutherfuckers. They could’ve showed the whole Urban Dub song instead of Mig’s. Same thing happened to Sandwich and a lot of other good bands. Their songs have to be cut. I wonder why. What I really enjoyed watching on the show was Junior Kilat. they were fuckin awesome. I almost died laughing at their cool frontman. He was pointing his cane at the audience like it was some kind of Machine gun. Astig.
