Welcome to my site archives. 10 posts are listed per page.
STILL ALIVE, SO DON'T WORRY
I'm gonna make this post short. No 10 things, no elaboration (well, maybe a little). Just a short post.
First of all, I'm quite a busy dude right now. I'm currently managing my time as a college student and as secretary of our university's Commission on Elections (This is the commission I've been telling you a month ago.) And since elections for the student government are in the next three weeks, I have to focus my attention on these stuff for now. So, I apologize if I can't update that much today.
Second, I'm also trying to make a site devoted to making a less serious coverage of the 2007 Philippine Midterm Elections. However, I'm doing little update in it too because of my busy life. If you have time, visit it and add it as a friend (since this is a Friendster account). Here's the link, by the way: Let's VOTE In!
And lastly, I realized that there's a big problem going on here in theOtaku.com concerning the AnimeFF controversy. It's just so sad to hear that the site has to face this really huge problem right now, even though they didn't cause it. I'm not gonna talk much about it 'coz I only know too little about the facts (because of my busy life, once again). So may I extend my support to those who fell victim to this really big problem.
And if it's possible, please tell others about this problem so that there can be a way to find justice here. I would suggest you to try that iReport for CNN thing in CNN.com. I tried it, but it won't send, so I hope you would have better luck.
Now, here's TODAY'S SPECIAL

Here's a hilarious 3-minute clip from the movie "Kung Pow" (a parody of kung-fu movies)
STILL STAYING ALIVE
Hey there guys. Still smell what The Mask is cookin'?
1. Sorry once again for another delayed update. I'll just have to warn you that this 2007, I won't be posting much already. Partly because of my studies, partly because of my computer's odd Net connection, and partly because of my "affiliation" in school.
2. What is "the affiliation" you ask? For now, I'll keep it a secret. In fact, I never told any of my real friends yet (except for a couple of old high school classmates). You'll find out later, when we'll start revealing ourselves to the world. But if you can't wait for it, then try looking at my myOtaku history and you'll find your answer.
3. This week our city hosted the ASEAN Summit. How can I describe the summit? Five words: TRAFFIC, FACADES, FOOD POISONING and...well, SUCCESS.
4. HERO TV has added Negima in its anime line-up. I kinda liked the show, mainly because of the story. Somehow, anime shows about extraordinary teachers never fail to catch my attention. And since Negi is a very young teacher who can do magic, it makes me more interested.
5. Tomorrow, I'll be part of a large number of students who'll serve as crowd control for the solemn procession prior the Sinulog festival (NOTE: The Sinulog Festival is a festival in Cebu, Philippines held every 3rd Sunday of January in honor of Santo Niņo, which is the Infant Child Jesus.) This will be for our Civic Welfare class and I'll be in the crowd control from 1pm to around 6pm. This means one thing: I might turn into sizzling bacon tomorrow.
6. Next week will be Midterm Week. Gonna be busy once again, especially in PE (wherein we'll have a Sinulog dance presentation) and Sociology (which really requires a lot of thinking and research). Hope I can do well in the tests.
7. What can be more crappy than the irritating Kevin Federline defeating John Cena in a wrestling match? Well, it would have to be the match between the fake Rosie O' Donnell and the fake Donald Trump. In fact, this would have to be the CRAPPIEST of all matches. The WWE peeps even acted as if they were the real deal. I'm sorry to the two impersonators if this offends you, but that match just destroyed what WWE was supposed to be. If this was part of a grander storyline, then so be it. But if not, then damn it WWE! After all these series of events, maybe I should just stick to TNA.
8. Elections, elections, elections. There could never be a political issue I like more than elections. And since the period for the 2007 Philippine Midterm Elections has officially begun, I might start making features about it in the site.
9. Speaking of Philippine elections, I have to say I was quite upset when I heard that senatoriable Sonia Roco (widow of Raul Roco) has joined the opposition party. I don't really support the administration that much, but I sure as hell don't support the opposition that much either. She had some good ideas, so it's a shame she had to be under the opposition. If only she was in the "third party"...
10. The "third party". In Gundam Seed it's the Minerva, fighting against the dark forces of the Earth Alliance and ZAFT. They say this upcoming Senate elections, there will be a third party. I just hope it will happen (and Sonia Roco would move here instead) 'cause frankly, I don't like both the administration and the opposition.

For today, here's some quotes from "Family Guy" that teach a valuable lesson of how we should be more careful when we work as reporters, which is odd 'coz Family Guy wasn't made to teach lessons. Anyway, here it goes:
Tom Tucker: Because of an accident today at the Quahog cable company, all television transmission will be out for an undetermined amount of time. Of course, no one can see this news program, so it doesn't really matter what we say. I'm the Lord Jesus Christ. I think I'll go get drunk and beat up some midgets, how about you, Diane? Diane Simmons: Well, Tom, I just plain don't like black people. Camera man: Hey guys, we're still on in Boston.
Tom Tucker: Well Diane, that last report was so good I think you deserve a spanking. Diane: Oh Tom, I don't think your wife would appreciate that. Tom: Haha, that frigid old cow lives in Quahog she can't hear a word I'm saying. Camera Guy: Actually, we're back on the air in Quahog.
THERE'S A REASON FOR A SNOWFALL, A REASON WHY A TREE'S TALL . . .
Hey guys! Still smell what The Mask is cookin'?
1. My sore throat's gone already. Had it cured through some sort of ginger soup that my mom cooked, and a Chinese lemon (kalamansi) & butter solution my mom taught me. So yeah, I feel better now.
2. A few hours ago I was shocked to learn that my Psychology book was left at school. I found that out when my teacher saw my book at her table. Good thing it didn't get lost, for that book cost PHP 600, dammit!
3. Some girls saw my book under the armchair where I left it yesterday (and forgot to bring). They used it for studying their lessons. After which, they placed it on the table inside my room for Religion class. They knew I'll be there 'coz there was an admission slip inserted in it, and that slip had a complete list of my schedules.
4. Who would have thought that admission slip had a second purpose? The slip gave me a bit of a headache last month because I had to buy it so that I can take the Tuesday exams (I left my slip in my house, so I had to buy another one.) And now, that slip led to the return of my expensive psychology book. Well, as that song goes, "There's a reason for a snowfall, a reason why a tree's tall..."
5. The ASEAN Summit will be held in our place next week on Jan. 12-15 (Thursday-Monday). As such, we won't be having classes on that day. Unless if they postpone it again. The summit was supposed to be held last month, but a typhoon prevented it from doing so.
6. Kevin Federline beat John Cena in a No-DQ match? Crappy! But at least he got some FUs for upsetting Cena. Exactly right for someone who claims to be "America's Most Hated".
7. To see my message , go to 8.

9. Sorry if I played with you. Had to do what I need to do to fill up the ten posts. Like what I'm doing now.
10. And now, TODAY'S SPECIAL
---------- TODAY'S SPECIAL
Here's an episode from a short and funny cartoon here in the Philippines called "Barkada Trip". Basically, the cartoon's about the misadventures of a group of friends. It currently airs in Studio 23.
In this episode, the two friends are fighting over who gets the last fish ball.
Hey guys! Can you smell what The Mask is cookin' this 2007?
1. Happy new year everyone! How's the fireworks last night?
2. Currently suffering from yet another case of sore throat. Seems the holiday celebration started to take its toll on my throat.
3. I was supposed to give a year-ender yesterday, but the super-slow Net connection got in the way. Damn! It was kinda long. Oh well...
4. I feel sorry for the people in Bangkok. The end of 2006 didn't turn out to be okay for them, after bombs rocked their place yesterday. As a result, their New Year celebration had to be cancelled. Let's hope things in Bangkok will be resolved. Click here to see what happened.
5. Did any of you make New Year resolutions? I made some myself. One of them is "responding to the guys that have signed my guestbook recently". I'm not really sure if I can keep these resolutions. But then again, a little jingle once said, "It's New Year's resolution time, kiss another year goodbye. These New Year resolutions are just another pack of lies."
6. Last Saturday, former Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein was executed by hanging. It was kinda shocking, since I expected the execution to happen next year. I had doubts about his death, but a video I recently viewed proved to me that he was indeed dead. I hope all those who died because of his regime will now rest in peace. And, even though it may sound odd, I also hope that Saddam's soul will also rest in peace. And may the Iraqis find peace soon. (If you want to see the full execution, click here.WARNING: Very graphic. Not suitable for young children.
7. Bought myself a "Mankind Have A NIce Day" T-Shirt last week. It's nice to finally have this shirt, especially since I am a WWE fan and this is my first collectible. Plus, it's one of my fave quotes.
8. I'm starting to become a TNA fan. Yesterday, I saw a replay of one of their pay-per-views, "TNA Genesis". The matches I saw were saw Abyss vs. Sting and Kurt Angle vs. Samoa Joe. It was really amazing. It's times like these that I wish I could have a TNA T-shirt right now.
9. Raindrops keep falling in my head...oh nothing, just wasting space.
10. Here's TODAY'S SPECIAL:
----------- TODAY'S SPECIAL
For today, here's a short claymation clip to celebrate the New Year.
SANTA CLAUS IS COMING TO TOWN
Hey there! Do you smell that holiday spirit everyone? And, oh yeah, do you smell what The Mask is cookin'?
You know the drill...
1. Sorry it took me oh so long to post. My last post happened to be exactly 20 days ago, or almost 3 weeks. Had a lot of school stuff to do.
2. This week was my pre-midterms. I think I did well in all subjects, except for Spanish and Psychology.
3. I think the reason I didn't do well in the two subjects was due to the cold and headache I suffered prior to the test. And after reading some lessons on stress, I have a feeling a stressful situation that I encountered prior to those tests made me have some "psychosomatic symptoms", which were the colds and headaches. I did manage to take the stress after giving some crackers to a poor guy sitting near our school as my Christmas gift to him.
4. Oh yeah, I gave out chocolates last Tuesday as my Christmas gift to my classmates. They were slightly cheap chocolates, so that doesn't mean I'm that "generous". I did it also because tehre was no Christmas party in the department (WHY???!!)
5. If you're going to be generous this Christmas, please be sure that you really give your heart into it. What I mean is this: When you're giving food for the poor this Christmas, make sure it's NOT EXPIRED! I'm still quite upset at someone in our PE class who gave an expired can of milk.
6. Right now, I'm chatting with Blue Hawk. This means one thing to her loyal fans: SHE'S STILL ALIVE!
7. By the way, CONGRATULATIONS TO ALL OF YOU! You know why? 'COZ YOU ARE TIME'S PERSON OF THE YEAR! (Picture taken from TIMEAsia.com)
8. Anybody cared to buy that issue of TIME magazine? If you go to the two pages where they have a photo-shoot of the guys from YouTube, you'll see a small, blurred picture of Sasuke and Sakura (of Naruto) in the background. It's located beside the hand of one of those founders.
9. I think this will be my last post for 2006. So...what was your favorite or most memorable special in TODAY'S SPECIAL this year? And what was your fave THREE FREAKING YEARS episode?
10. Cheap plug: Since it's Christmas time, check out my old article, "Anime Christmas Carols". Click the pic below to read it:
---------- TODAY'S SPECIAL
Since it's Christmas, I decided to have this really nice anime Christmas video as the special today. And when I said nice, I mean it! Anyway, enjoy the clip:
'TIS THE SEASON TO BE JOLLY!
1. It's December! Few more days to go and Christmas will be in town!
2. As you can see, my site's in a Christmas mood already. Can you feel that holiday spirit everyone?
3. I'm fresh off my screening test for the school newspaper. The test was quite tough. I didn't do the editorial writing part 'coz I don't feel I could do the job of being an editorial writer.
4. Remember that certain interview I had with a certain student official of a certain student commission regarding a certain application I made for a certain position in that certain commission? Well it just so happens that on that very interview, the official told me that I got the job. Right now, I'll keep mum about this thing. Some bad things might happen if I don't keep my mouth shut.
5. The other Saturday, I watched the film, "Ang Pagdadalaga ni Maximo Oliveros" (The Blossoming of Maximo Oliveros). This is the Philippines' entry for the upcoming Oscar awards. For a film about a young gay boy, I gotta say I was shocked to see what I found. It was, well, wholesome. Not your typical gay film. Kinda liked it not because it's gay but because the way they made the film was quite, well, unique.
6. Last Monday, I watched "Inang Yaya" (Mama Maid). It happened to be the premiere night, so I got a chance to see popular veteran Filipina actress Maricel Soriano (the star of the film). The movie was good, too.
7. Wondering why I've been watching movies lately? Those films will be used as basis for our pre-midterm tests, so we watched it.
8. Is it me or is my lately-unused opening line really getting famous? Several days ago, Adam seemed to have used a variation of that quote in his post. Click here to see it.. And yes jomz, we got the same thing in mind.
9. Apparently, two myO members who aren't my real-life friends now have access to my Friendster account. You know who you are, and now you can see me unmasked. NOOOOOO!!!!!!! Just don't post my picture here, or you will feel "the wrath of The Mask"!
10. Had my penitential rites yesterday. Kinda felt good after the confession.
THE USHER'S IN THE HOUSE! WORD!
Hey there. Still smell what The Mask is cookin'?
You know, I'm getting used to my "TEN THINGS" style of posting. So...you know the drill:
1. The Psychology Convention was great. The food was okay. (Heh! Quite odd for me to comment on the food FIRST, isn't it?) The lectures were good too, although some cultural differences and technical problems made some of the lectures a bit...well...less interesting.
2. I absolutely enjoyed being an usher. Well, 99% of me enjoyed being the usher. Greeting people, doing some behind-the-scenes stuff, being the guy that people call when there's a problem (although not in a Ghostbuster kind of way). Somehow, I kinda like that kind of job.
3. Wondering where the 1% of my love for the usher role went? Well, one of my fellow usherettes told the table of the Graduate Students to minimize their voice. Then one of them said something like "Do you know who I am? I'm Dr. BlahBlah (name withheld to keep the doctor from performing a live autopsy of my body). And then she complained aggresively to some of our staff regarding the criteria for the choosing of the not-too-interesting speaker (which made them noisy, as he/she said). My fellow usherette apologized, but she was said to have still been super-furious. Well...now you see the downside of being an usher.
4. Since this week was also Book Week, we got to have a film showing on several films like "The Chronicles of Narnia: The Lion, The Witch, and The Wardrobe", "The Exorcism of Emily Rose", and "High School Musical". I watched the 3 said films, but it was only Narnia that I got to watch in full.
5. Tonight will be Affinity II for the freshies and also Psych Night for the psychos. Hmm...which of these parties that my friends are not likely to attend should I attend? Ah, I know! NONE! The reason, aside from the fact that my friends won't be there, is because I REALLY need a rest from the busy week.
6. I signed up for the school newspaper. Tomorrow, I'll have my workshop (which is after my practice for our penitential rites). On Sunday, it will be Part 2 of the workshop. And then, I'LL RULE THE WORLD! Hehe, sorry, my crazy self couldn't resist saying it. Anyway, me being a campus journalist sounds kinda cool for me, and I hope the experience will definitely be cool.
7. I applied for a secretarial position for the university commission on elections. Later, I'll have my interview. Oh boy...
8. Uhhh...I like peanuts. I like it fried or roasted, with or without skin, salted or sugar-coated. Many people blame that for my "smart brain", as they would say.
9. Anybody here wanna join forces with me and make a Fan Manga for Christmas? I'll give you the story, and one of you will make the manga. However, the project is still temporary and I might withdraw it later. But anyway, ANY VOLUNTEERS?
10. TODAY'S SPECIAL: "Isn't the antenna the thing that you plug on the butt of the television?"
I CAN'T LET YOU PASS ME BY, I JUST CAN'T LET YOU GO
Hey guys! Do you smell what The Mask is cookin'?
Alright, my hand is freezing here due to the air-conditioner of the Internet cafe. So allow me to use MY patented "Ten Things" post. And, go:
1. We had an earlier dismissal today 'coz the teacher in my afternoon class was absent. Whoopee!
2. I'm currently looking for several MP3 files that my mom asked me to bring. Having a hard time 'coz some of these songs are so hard to find.
3. Next week will be the Psychology Week. All of us Psych majors get to have no classes for most of the week and do several activities, including a "ROCK NYT" at some popular restaurant in our place.
4. This coming Monday and Tuesday will be the Psychology Convention. Kinda getting nervous since I'm an usher, and I'm assigned to handle the things outside the convention hall (ex. registration). Hope everything works well.
5. The convention will be at Casino Espaņol. This is the same place where I had my reunion with my old grade-school classmates last December, the all-black birthday party of my elementary classmate Niņa last January, and my last JS Prom last February. So yeah, I pretty much know this place a lot. So I guess this is a plus for me as an usher.
6. AHHH!!!! MY ARMS ARE FREEZING! DAMN YOU, MR. FREEZE! BATMAN, HELP ME!
7. Uhh...in less crazy stuff, I learned that today there will be a concert a Casino Espaņol. The artist will be Jose Mari Chan, an old Filipino singer known for composing several hits (ex. Beautiful Girl, Please Be Careful With My Heart) as well as some Christmas songs (ex. Christmas in my Heart). I would love to go and listen to it, but the admission price is just TOO high. (Note: PHP 1000!)
8. Speaking of Jose Mari Chan, there's this one song of his that I really like right now. It's entitled "Afraid For Love To Fade". I'll talk more on this in TODAY'S SPECIAL.
9. Knock Out (Hajime No Ippo) is back in GMA! Woohoo!
10. Up Next: TODAY'S SPECIAL
---------- TODAY'S SPECIAL
For today, here's "Afraid For Love To Fade" by Jose Mari Chan. Lyrics are written below.
TEN THINGS I'D LIKE TO SAY TODAY
1. Yes, I'm still alive!
2. I got sick in Halloween season because of a throat problem, which led to a fever and headache. Plus, the fact that I carried water gallons while being sick also made me suffer muscle pains in my arms (especially the left).
3. This week is my first week in school. Still in my Psychology course.
4. My schedule sucks! Classes start early at 7:30 pm, and ends at 6-6:30pm. And it has too many breaks. Add that to the fact that the trip to school from my house takes about 30minutes-1 hour, making me sleep early and wake early. Sigh!
5. T.G.I.F.! Apparently, Friday's the day where I get an early dismissal.
6. I added a Christmas countdown at the top. Can you just feel the Christmas spirit?
7. The fact that I have a screwed-up connection and modem in the house made me visit myOtaku less these days.
8. Democrats rule the elections! Rumsfeld leaves Defense post! What's in store for Bush? Dunno. I'm not really an American, but I do hope this really will be a time for positive change.
9. Eddie Guerrero's 1st death anniversary is on the coming Monday. Don't forget to pray for his soul, wrestling fans.
10. Currently downloading MP3s in our new MP3 player. And finally finished watching Blue Hawk's FMA CDs with our new DivX-playing component.
WHEN THINGS DON'T GO AS PLANNED. . .
Hey guys! Still smell what The Mask is cookin'?
Well, first things first. Let's make the THREE FREAKING YEARS special in my last post as the final chapter of THREE FREAKING YEARS. I was supposed to make my overall history here in myO as my final episode. However, since my computer at home had a screwed-up modem AND a screwed-up connection, I can't do that. The whole write-up is in my computer, and I don't wanna type the whole thing.
Besides, the one thing I really wanted to say in that write-up is this:
Thank you! Thank you for all the great memories and all the fun in the past 3 years. I hope the next years will be full of more fun and craziness.
Now, on other stuff. Right now, I'm still trying to enroll myself for the second semester in my Psychology course. Due to some "unexpected" circumstances, the whole enrollment process became quite complicated. This made me SO pissed. This whole thing's turning us Psychos into psychos! Anyway, I hope the whole thing's gonna end soon.
For the whole "unmask The Mask" thing, let's just say my mask is stuck in my face and thus I can't unmask myself as of this time. That, and the whole messed-up computer thing.
Oh, and if you still didn't know why I did THREE FREAKING YEARS, here's the reason: I was celebrating my 3rd year anniversary in the site. That's why I told you to look at the left side of my site. It's because the clue is just there.
And now, the return of TODAY'S SPECIAL

After 2 months of being offline, TODAY'S SPECIAL is back! For the first special in two months, here's a funny clip of how US President George W. Bush knows little about the month of February. (From: The Late Show with David Letterman)
