Along with today's untintentional pr0n, due to my slow computer, I have to pass up on both. No worries... heh.
.:And He Confesses To Being Gay...:.
Lance Bass, former member of N Sync, has finally come out of the closet.
I have nothing against homosexuals at all, but why do they insist on being part of "boy bands"? Well, there's one of the Moffats, there's Stephen Gately, there's the Westlife guy... there's Village People, if you want to reach far back.
Oh, well. That's show business for you. It seems he's happy where he is, regardless, so that should suffice.
.:To Be The Man!:.
So Elbert and Elsie went to Fully Booked to check out any books or comics they might wanna buy.
Next thing I knew, they bought nothing, and I was the one who bought a book.
It's Ric Flair's biography, "To Be The Man". Really heard a lot of good things about this book, so I look forward to finding time to read it.
.:Creative Juices Are Beginning To Drip...:.
They're not yet flowing, but the creative writing you've known and loved (or hated) is poised to make a comeback soon.
I just really need to clear out the backlog of ideas I have, more than anything else, seriously. Still, despite that, my writing's at least still on target for the most part...
I knew about this already, but the picture is from Monix...
Well, I'm sure people already have an inkling that her career hasn't been doing well lately, and this mainly stemmed from the first time she left for Korea. Now, what might shock you are the circumstances behind her departure, circumstances which I would be all too happy to tell you about if you asked me offline.
Awesome. I'll be sure to get this. And watch her in her first bold movie or something. Haha.
So here I am, still in the office, despite it being 1:25 in the afternoon. It's fine, really. I've been asked to do boardwork for Pam from 12 to 3 in the afternoon, and I've also been asked to make sure that everything they need for the KBP Golden Dove Award nominations are accomplished by the time Monday rolls along. It makes you wonder why they didn't even bother doing this when the time was still good, like, oh, maybe a month or two ago.
Anyways, so I've been up for so long already... I boarded from two to six in the morning, then I was at work until noon, then I have to board three hours, then I have to make sure the forms needed for the KBP stuff are in order by tomorrow at least..
Gakk. Talk about being overloaded. Still, it's all good...
.:Someone I'm Getting To Know Only Now...:.
I haven't really talked much about her yet, but I think now's a safe time to do just that...
A couple of weeks ago, during the Sci-Fi Convention, I ran into this very interesting girl in the Harry Potter booth. While I didn't have the nerve to approach her to introduce myself, and the so-called PHP pimp was too busy to make introductions, I pulled a few strings and found a way to get in touch with her via Multiply.
So anyways, I'm talking about Macy. =P
It's amusing, really, how there are those rare people you just meet and you just completely jive with them off the bat. Not since Clair have I met someone like that, and well, now, Macy, who's a fan of anime, Star Wars, Harry Potter, and pro wrestling. We have absolutely nothing in common! ::laughs::
But seriously, I know we hardly know each other yet, and we have yet to officially meet in person, but it's a great change of pace to find a new friend who you are on the same wavelength with. It's a rarity, and it's something I can't help but be happy about.
I hope that in the event she's reading this, she wouldn't feel too taken aback. This is really my uncanny way of showing my appreciation for someone, writing a very glowing testimonial about them on my blog. =)
Thanks for the wonderful conversations thus far, Macy! Hope to see you soon!

Yes, it's an extended advertisement for the third movie.
No, it's not a bad movie.
In fact, I quite enjoyed it, and Johnny Depp was nothing short of awesome.
I saw it with Elbert and Elsie yesterday, and I have to say it was pretty fun to watch, from the comedy to the action. I didn't even realize the movie ran pretty long. That didn't keep me from enjoying the film at all.
I just feel too drained to do film reviews nowadays, but I'd have to say the movie's fun factor merited an A+, while critically, I'd have given it a B+. The movie was a barrel and a half of fun, although it certainly ended on such a cliffhanging note. If it were a TV show, that's fine. If the next movie would come out in two months (Ala Reloaded and Revolutions.), it's still fine. But next year? Nuh-uh.
.:Unexpected Bonding With One Parental Unit:.
So my mom invited me to dinner last night at Pho Hoa. The food was pretty good, though I was a bit surprised by it. I never did eat Vietnamese food prior to this, after all.
It was funny, though, because we were looking for Connie's Kitchen and couldn't, so after a few minutes, we gave up, and we just went to go to Cyberzone so I can canvas for a 2GB memory stick...
And we found Connie's Kitchen outside Cyberzone.
Talk about a coincidence.
In any case, I'm glad I found the time to talk to my mom. She's a bit worried about my brother, but I suppose it's understandable why she is...
Eww. Cousintahans. Eww.
.:Mabuti Pa Ang PSP...:.
Mabuti pa ang PSP...
Ang girlfriend, naagaw na sa iyo, nang-iiwan pa.
Ang PSP, at least, naagaw lang (Kung tatanga-tanga ka.)
Ang girlfriend, madalas, wala sa mood.
Ang PSP, laging game.
Ang girlfriend, pag nagtampo, hindi mo makausap.
Ang PSP, hindi nagtatampo.
Ang girlfriend, puwede mabuntis.
Ang PSP, hindi. Pero puwede mo naman lagyan ng mga video.
Ang girlfriend, puwede magsawa sa iyo.
Ang PSP, ikaw lang ang puwede magsawa sa kanya.
Ang girlfriend, magagalit pag tumingin ka sa ibang babae.
Ang PSP, walang problema kung tumingin ka sa ibang PSP.
Ang girlfriend, paglalaruan ka.
Ang PSP, paglalaruan mo.
Ang girlfriend, mahirap dalhin sa motel.
Ang PSP, puwede mo dalhin kahit saan.
Kaya kung ako sa iyo, bumili ka na ng PSP. 27,500 lang, may kasama pang orig na games! Sa'n ka pa?

You thought it wouldn't happen, but here it is!
I am selling the following ORIGINAL PSP games (With their boxes intact.) altogether for 20,000:
1. Dynasty Warriors
2. Dragonball Z Shin Budokai
3. X-Men Legends II
4. Prince Of Persia: Revelations
5. Smackdown vs. RAW 2006
6. Naruto: Narutimete Portable (JAPANESE ONLY. NO ENGLISH VERSION AVAILABLE.)
7. NBA Street Showdown
8. NBA Live 06
9. NBA Ballers Rebound
10. MLB 06: The Show
11. Fight Night Round 3
12. Metal Gear Ac!d 2 (Will not come with Solid Eye attachment... sorry.)
That's 12 games, meaning you get each game for under 1,667 bucks apiece. Standard market price of PSP games are 2,500-3,500 bucks per UMD.
HOWEVER, if you want to purchase this AND my PSP, I'll sell the whole thing for 27,500. The important thing to note here is that I am also including a 512MB Sony Memory Stick for your gamesaves and whatnot. My PSP is in good condition, although some noticable scratches are present. Regardless, you are purchasing a unit for 7,500 bucks, about 4,500 bucks cheaper than it usually is, and those units don't even come with a memory card. The PSP is Japanese version, Firmware 2.6.
If you're interested, get in touch with me. I need the money. =)

Monday: The police who arrest the king for bestiality.
.:Yet Another Absence:.
Y'know, I already got a memo for my really bad attendance the past few months, but I just really needed to take a leave of absence because my insomnia got so bad that I knew I was either going to oversleep again or just get hit with the flu. So to preempt my condition from getting worse, I took a leave.
It's funny how everything just goes down the drain, doesn't it? It just makes it all the better when you get told that there just might be someone else in the picture now.
Wonderful. Just absofreakinglutely wonderful.
.:Saturday: Girl's Night Out:.
So I went with Elbert, Johan, and a new acquaintance, Gie (The only actual girl in this girl's night out.), where we all went to Greenbelt, under the premise of “looking for girls”.
It's a bit amusing that Elbert felt so generous and actually said that in the (unlikely) event that any of us find someone to “take home”, we could borrow the keys to his place to get it on there.
Needless to say, the moment we got there, I successfully deflected any attention in my direction by designating myself as the bag holder. Note that this was a packed house in Absinth, so I was standing around, carrying two bags, one of them a girl's bag. That being said, I was definitely not going to get any attention that way.
The most amusing thing of the night was that instead of Johan getting the numbers when he's supposed to be the one girl-hunting, it was Elbert who got three numbers. One came from a girl he chatted up while we were having dinner. Two came from the friend of a girl who was eying Johan while he was dancing. Johan was just a wee bit too dense to capitalize on stuff like that, unfortunately. Heh.
So afterwards, we just went to Red Box to go and have some videoke. Now, that was where I really took out all my frustrations, bombarding them with Gary Valenciano songs for the most part, as well as my other standards like “Modelong Charing”, “Endless Love”, and “Never Get Over You Getting Over Me”. It was a fairly good night, although I can't believe I shelled out five hundred bucks to just watch Elbert go macking on chicks. Heh.
.:Sunday: The Great Con:.
I woke up fairly early despite the late Saturday night, and hitched a ride with the Head Geekette to the New Worlds Alliance Convention in Rockwell. It wasn't particularly awe-inspiring, albeit I was mostly hanging around the Harry Potter booth, where I saw quite a few people, and as usual, I shut myself out from getting to know any of them.
One of them even looked like ::sighs:: Gyn... significantly taller, but the resemblance was definitely there... sigh...
Anyways, the convention had quite a few surprises, and it was just really great seeing Jac, Jonas, and a few of the other guys after a long time. It was a bit of a surprise, for that matter, to find out that Rocco and Nicco are brothers. I've known both for years, but separately. Holy cow.
Ranulf, who was king of the cosplaying ball even had a fight scene with Jac, although Ranulf's acting was... err... wooden. Next time, they should do a wrestling fight scene. I would so kill to get in on that. Nobody takes a Stonecold Stunner like me. Heh. I can sell any move and make it look like a million bucks.
Elbert was there, but he left too early. A little less than an hour later, Camy showed up, and well, we talked a bit, but it looks like she's coping well. She still brought up recent events, though, and that kinda shed light on me that there is still something to cope with. I really hope that the unnecessary tension between those two would ease down in the near future, but knowing what I know right now about things like that in general, that may just simply be asking for too much.
So yeah. There were some really cute girls in the Harry Potter booth, but well, I just didn't bother trying to get to know them. I dunno. I guess there's just a lot of things really holding me back.
Wait. Just one, actually... ::sighs::

Hulkamania's running wild!!! Real wild!!!
.:Space-Time Continuum Flux:.
I woke up at 6.
I rushed and feared the worst, knowing my boardwork was over already, since my show is from 2 to 6 in the morning.
Next thing I knew, Megamall was still open. What gives?
Apparently, I was awake at 6PM yesterday, not 6AM this morning. Holy cripes. I wasted good sleeping time worrying about being late and going to the office uber-early....
During our show, Gia and I interviewed the lead singer of the Pussycat Dolls over the phone.
Way cool interview, and she was awfully nice while she was at it.
So someone stole $20 from me again. Grrr. This is really annoying me, especially since it was stolen from my wallet, which prolly means someone from the condo stole it. It couldn't have been snatched or something since my wallet's still with me...
Everything that could go wrong in my life has been going wrong. Just my luck, huh?

Link to the story here!!!
If you’re lazy, here’s the text of the article:
A Northeast Portland man is suing basketball superstar Michael Jordan and Nike founder Phil Knight for a combined $832 million. Allen Heckard filed the suit himself, June 29th in Washington County Court. Heckard says he’s been mistaken as Michael Jordan nearly every day over the past 15 years and he’s tired of it.
“I'm constantly being accused of looking like Michael and it makes it very uncomfortable for me,” said Heckard.
Heckard is suing Jordan for defamation and permanent injury and emotional pain and suffering. He’s suing Knight for defamation and permanent injury for promoting Jordan and making him one of the most recognized men in the world.
Heckard stands just over six feet tall. He is not six foot six like the real Michael Jordan. But Heckard says many people seem to miss that. He does share a bit of resemblance to the real Michael Jordan. Heckard has a shaved head, an earring in his left ear, and is in good shape from working out, and yes, playing basketball.
“Even when I go to the gym I'm being accused of playing ball like him (Jordan), said Heckard."
Most people would consider that a high compliment.
"Yes...don’t get me wrong it’s definitely a positive thing, because Michael, like I say is one of the best ball players that I've known to play the game. But then again, that's Michael and I'm me. So I want to be recognized as me just like Michael's being recognized as Michael."
Dressed in blue Air Jordan tennis shoes, Heckard might seem to be actually trying to look like Jordan but Heckard doesn’t see it that way.
"They're very comfortable shoes to play ball in,” said Heckard. “I play a lot of basketball and any other shoes I try to play in tend to hurt the bottom of my feet."
“I got a right to buy Nike or Adidas or what ever, so I chose the Nike because its a good shoe for me to play ball in,” he said.
Heckard agreed that not everyone thinks he’s a famous basketball player, but insisted a lot of people do mistake him for Jordan.
"I figure if I'm out in public and around a lot of people at least three or four times out of a crowd ...and like I was at the Blues Festival and you could see people they was pointing at me," he said.
Some might wonder how he decided to sue Knight and Jordan for $416-million each. "Well, you figure with my age and you multiply that times seven and ah, then I turn around and ah I figure that's what it all boils down to."
The question remains – is the occasional confusion with an admired celebrity worth $800 million.
“Well,” said Heckard, “You never can put a value on a person's life. You know you're taking my lifestyle away from me. So you know...we'll let the ball bounce like Michael does...where it’s supposed to fall.”
Okay. Done reading that crock of crap?
Wow. Just wow.
So for looking like him, he can SUE Jordan because that took away his lifestyle? I mean, seriously now. Is anyone going to actually try to believe that’s enough grounds to sue someone?
And really now, what lifestyle? Do we ignore the fact that he still has a private life outside of the public eye? Do we ignore the fact that in other facets beyond basketball and the face, all similarities end? Does looking like Jordan keep him from getting a job or an education? I mean, so people think he looks like Jordan. Big freaking deal. That was never enough grounds for your lifestyle to get castrated now, was it?
Is it anyone’s fault they were born to look that way? Is it Nike’s fault that they would market the greatest player to ever hold a basketball? What about Jordan’s other endorsements? Gatorade? Hanes? What about them? Didn’t they “market” Jordan, too? So how come those guys aren’t being sued? Clearly, there’s an obvious slant, and that’s to make Nike and Jordan settle out of court and pay this son of a bitch to just drop the case and spare them a hassle.
I say let them take it to court, and let the judge and Hades, the jury, laugh in Heckard’s face as they throw the case out for the nonsensical piece of crap that it is.
For anyone to find any merit whatsoever in suing someone for being mistaken as him is nothing short of ridiculous.
Seriously, if by some act of God, Heckard wins his case, I’m suing the Greek deity Adonis for being worshipped all these years for having looks akin to mine. You mean to tell me just because he existed before Christ was born, that’s enough reason for him to get worshipped and for me, not to? That is unlawful!
That, or I could sue Peter North and have a court injunction from him making films lest people mistake me for “imitating” Peter’s technique, which I actually developed on my own.

Minsan, ang daling mangako, tapos kakalimutan lang ang lahat sa isang iglap.
Minsan, napakasimple lang na isantabi ang mga sumpaang walang hanggan dahil lang sa mga napakaliit na bagay.
Ganyan talaga. Minsan, daig pa niya ang isang kisapmata...
Nitong umaga lang,
Ng iyong mga matang
Hayup kung tumingin.
Nitong umaga lang,
Ng iyong sumpang
walang aawat sa atin.
O kay bilis namang
Pag-ibig mo sinta,
Daig mo pa ang isang kisapmata.
Kanina'y nariyan o ba't
Bigla namang nawala.
Daig mo pa ang isang kisapmata.
Ng pagkasabi mong
Sana'y tayo na nga.
Ng buhay kong
Bigla na lamang nagiba
.:Too Much Stress:.
I had a great deal of progress for my work in WAVE lately, but beyond that, meh.
I want to sleep... I want to blog...

I like this song, and it does ring true for me. Well, that's how all my LSS stuff are, anyways.
It's a solid song about a topic I feel a lot of affinity for...
Pwede ba’ng sabihin mo
Itatago mo ang mga sulat ko
Kasi medyo naiinis ako
Kung itatapon mo
At huwag kang mag-alala
‘Di ako luluha
Kung may kapiling kang iba
‘Di na pipilitin pa
Itong damdamin ko sa’yo
Pero ayos lang sa’kin ‘to
Pwede ba’ng sabihin
Maghihintay ako sa’yo
Kasi medyo naiinip ako
Sa ikot ng mundo
Pwede ba’ng isipin mo
Nahihirapan din naman ako
Sa paghihintay lang ng kung anu-ano
At huwag kang magtataka
Kung ako’y biglang makita na nag-iisa
Nakahiga lang sa kama
Iniisip ko ito
Oh, ba’t nga ba biglang nagbago
Makayanan ko sana ‘to
Makayanan ko sana ‘to
.:Checklisting For Now...:.
I simply have been too drained due to recent events to blog coherently. I know that's such a bad excuse, but well, there. That simply is the case.
Anyways, a checklist of things I must talk about...
1. Saturday tournament.
2. Superman Returns.
3. Manny Pacquiao and why I think he sucks.
That's all for now.
