Playback: Kid Rock - "Celebrate"

4/29/2014 5:59:26 PM

Honestly speaking, as much as I want to post something new today (which includes a series of current issues tirade, a set of WrestleMania posts, and an NBA Playoff second round predictions since I failed to make one in the first round), I’ll end up doing this: how about a post about this WrestleMania theme?



Honestly speaking, my ears have been hooked up to this one for already a long time. It’s Celebrate by the American rock musician called Kid Rock.

PBB Na! Eh Ano Ngayon?

4/28/2014 9:43:28 PM

Sa wakas, makalipas ang ilang taon, may panibago nang edisyon ang palabas na Pinoy Big Brother. ALL In na daw sila.

Wala lang. Ano na? Este, ano naman?

Kagabi, samu’t saring mga tweet na naglalaman ng pagkadismaya ang pumuno sa news feed ko sa  Twitter. Tapos, kaliaw’t kanang post na naman – mula status hanggang sa mga timeline photos – ang namuno naman sa Facebook.

Kaso, ano naman ngayon?

Tunay Na Banal

4/27/2014 2:16:44 PM

Sana ang karamihan sa mga taong nagpapakita talaga ng TUNAY na kabanalan, ay tulad ni Pope John Paul II. Oh, correction, Saint John Paul II.

Sa totoo lang, hindi ako saradong Katoliko, at hindi rin naman ako nabuhay sa medieval ages (ni hindi nga ako nakapunta sa isang malaking event noong 1995 na tinaguriang World Youth Day).

Pero hindi naman sa pangungumpara, ano? Ang mga tulad ni Karol Wojytla – o mas kilala mula pa noong 1978 bilang si Pope John Paul II – ang isa sa mga taong kailangan ng Simabahan para mapalaganap ang dalawang bagay: una, ang pananamplataya; at pangalawa, ang asal ng katinuan.

Summer Na! Eh Ano Ngayon?

4/2/2014 10:43:12 PM

Sa wakas, ito na naman ang pinakahinihintay ng maraming tao – ang bakasyon na kung tawagain ay ‘summer break.’

Pero… eh ano naman ngayon? May bago pa ba sa tipikal na kalakaran natin bilang mga mamamyan ng mundo at pagiging Pilipino pagdating ng summer? Maaring meron din total nagbabago naman talaga ang panahon.

Tirada Ni SlickMaster: The "Legal" Scenes

4/25/2014 5:35:40 PM

Kagabi ay nagtrend ang mga eksena mula sa palabas na ito.


WOW. Astig. May sampalan na naman! May iyakan! Batuhan ng matitinding kata at linya na naman! At higit sa lahat – nagkabukingan na. Nailantad ang dapat mailantad.

Ayos pa nga ang hashtag nila eh Parang yung pelikulang pinagbidahan lang nila Paul Walker, Vin Diesel at The Rock.

Eh kaso… ano na?

Alaala Ni Warrior

4/24/2014 9:23:06 AM

Sino mag-aakala na ang mamang ito ay mamamatay nang biglaan? As in hindi mo inaasahan bilang isang wrestling fan.

Oo, si James Brian Hellwig nga. Kung batang 80s o 90s ka at nanunood ng WWF (yan pa pangalan nila nun, bago sila nagkaroon ng naming dispute sa World Wildlife Fund) sa TV, ke sa channel 9 o 13 man yan, alam mo kung gaano kakilala ang mamang ito.

Yung taong laging nakaface-paint at may suot na maskarang akala mo ay aatend ng isang masquerade party? Yung tipong pag nasa squared circle ay ipapadyak ang paa ng bonggang-bongga habang tila inaalog ang taling nagsisilbing bakod nito. Yung sa sobrang wild ng personality dala ng kanayng hype at energy  pagdating sa arena, samahan mo pa ng musical entrance niya. At yung boses niya na kjala mo ay nakawala sa koral.


Yan nga – si Ultimate Warrior.

The iBlog10 Experience (Part 4)

4/17/2014 10:50:53 AM


After hearing a lot of speaking engagements at the 10th Philippine Blogging Summit, I realized something: we have the capability to foresee them.

Yes, we all do, just like the trolls who used to create those ‘end-of-the-world’ prophecies.

Even yours truly came up with a list, which goes… like this:

The iBlog10 Experience (Part 3)

4/15/2014 8:42:13 PM

A few days ago, I had thought of creating a part 3 of my experiences on the 10th Philippine Blogging Summit. The funny thing though is that one of my friends in the industry replied of “go ahead.”

And now, turns out the joke was one me when I made this post real.



As much as there are several points I imparted on the first two write-ups of this series (which by the way, was my personal tales of accounts during the two-day event).


It just so happened that I’m so thankful with bunches of stuffs I garnered during the stretch.and I’m not talking about anything materialistic here.

Instead, I’m all about ‘learning’ this time around.

Tirada Ni SlickMaster: $30M o Misa?

4/17/2014 2:43:58 PM

Isang pasada na naman sa maiinit na tirada kahit sa panahon pa ng Semana Santa (eh wala eh. Mainit ang panahon eh).

Nadismaya si Cardinal Tagle sa mga kabataan. At ang pinakadahilan? Pera.

Iba talaga pag nagagawa ng pera ano? Pero sandali, di pa tapos ang storya eh.

Vindication?!

4/20/2014 1:37:45 PM

Noong nakalipas na linggo, nasaksihan natin ito.

Tama, ang pagkapanalo ni Manny Pacquiao laban kay Timothy Bradley. Pero may nakakagulat pa nga sa pagkapanalo nito?

The Road to Antipolo

4/19/2014 11:04:45 AM

Around 10:10 PM at Marcos Bridge Marikina City.
I think I just had the most grueling challenge in my 23 years and almost 7 months of existence.

It’s been a very long while since I personally have thought of doing this – and I’m talking about ‘sacrifice’ for Holy Week. Yes, the one they called “Alay-Lakad.”

The Scene Around: Good Friday Procession at Taguig (2013)

4/17/2014 6:26:43 PM


Here is something yours truly have spotted over last year at the city of Taguig. It was a  Good Friday of 2013 (March 29, to be exact) at the compound where the school College of Sta. Ana is located; or if you're more familiar with the church, it is the one they called as either Simbahan ng Taguig or Simbahan ng Sta. Ana.

Noon at Ngayon: Semana Santa

4/17/2014 12:07:02 PM

Ibang-iba na talaga ang panahon. Parang kailan lang… Pasko, Bagong Taon, Valentine’s Day, Ash Wednesday at Graduation Day mo, no? Ngayon, panahon na naman ng katahimikan. Tila paglukuksa ba? Di naman siguro. Pero kakaiba kasi sa tipikal na araw at holiday ang tinatawag na “semana santa.”

Oo, semana santa. Ang panahon kung kelan biglang nagpapakatino ang karamihan, partikular ang mga Katoliko. Ang panahon kung kelan tahimik ang iyong radyo. Kung bakit sarado ang inyong paboritong mall. Kung bakit bigla kang walang pasok mula sa iyong trabaho at summer classes.

The Rundown Slam: WrestleMania XXX

4/15/2014 7:28:14 PM

For over three decades, the world of sports and entertainment had its huge convergence by the name of WrestleMania.


30 years (and a mere half month ago), the very first professional wrestling’s biggest extravaganza was set at the Madison Square Garden in New York City.

And who will thought that after thirty years, three legends emerged to get along in the Big Easy?
I’m talking about Hulk Hogan, Stone Cold Steve Austin and Dwayne ‘The Rock’ Johnson.

Photo credits: The Big Lead

Now that is an epic moment for Wrestlemania XXX!


I’ll gave the entire review of those big-card matches in separate posts.

Shocking Loss

4/15/2014 10:57:31 AM

Wala nang mas sasaklap pa sa mundo ng professional wrestling kesa sa pangyayaring ito noong Linggo, a-6 ng Abril (o Lunes, a-8 ng Abril, oras sa Pilipinas).


Tama, ang pagkatalo ng Undertaker sa isang... Brock (oh, sorry, “BRRRROOOCK!”) Lesnar.

BUWIS-IT (v. 2014)

4/14/2014 10:35:02 AM

Bukas ang pinakadeadline sa pagbabayad ng buwis.

Eh ano ngayon? Wala lang. Pinapalala lang naman nila, gamit ang kanilang nakakaka-LSS na jingle nila.


Aba, in fairness ha? May pagka-astig din.

Dahil Laban Ni Pacquiao...

4/13/2014 10:15:09 AM

Ayun, so Linggo na naman. At may laban na naman ang tinatawag nating ‘pambansang kamao.’ Baka sa malamang, may magtatanong – “eh ano naman ngayon kung laban ni Pacman?”

Ilang bagay lang ang panigurado dito – sa malamang, maraming mangyayari na namang hindi normal kung ikukumpara sa araw-araw na pamumuhay natin.

‘Bron versus KD? Seriously?!

2/22/2014 1:31:36 PM

After comparison between LeBron and Kobe headlined last year, the NBA fans are arguing again on whose player is better this season, and it’s all about LeBron or KD.

Hmm, seriously? DO you think we need to argue on this one?

Just My Opinion: Twitter's New Look

4/11/2014 11:32:40 AM

Since my friends are bugging me to do this, alright. I’ll give them what they wish (nah, they have to be careful though. LOL!)

Hey, you! (Yes indeed, I’m talking to you, unless you got a companion or some ‘usisero’ out there)

Got a Twitter profile now? How does it look? Does it appear like this?

Mas Okay Pang Manood ng Wrestling Kesa sa Telenovela

4/10/2014 10:37:26 AM

Sa totoo lang, ang isang sporting event ay isang pinakaperpektong halimbawa ng reality show, o ng isang television series. At kung ganun lang naman ang usapan, aba, mas okay pang manood ng wreswtling kesa sa teleserye!

Ano?! Seryoso ka ba?!

O, ano? Napataas ba bigla kilay mo? Uminit ba ulo mo? Kumulo ba dugo mo?

Kung ganun, aba, hindi ko na problema yan.

The iBlog10 Experience (Part 2)

4/9/2014 10:43:02 AM


There are so many memories and learning from Day 1. I know, the question from your mind goes: hey slick, how about the second?


Well, that is something I am gonna tell you for today. No need to worry, alright?

The iBlog10 Experience (Part 1)

4/8/2014 8:36:03 PM

It was like ten months in the making. And in fact, they just celebrated their ten years in this venture. And when they formally announced the event, I was one of the people who were more excited. Yes, frankly speaking, I was really looking forward for the 10th Philippine Blogging Summit.


I wasted no time in deciding (since being too patient is not really part of my personality at all): I immediately signed my name there, and bet my money that I could not really afford to miss this big thing in blogging (nah, just kidding on the latter part).

Pero Ang Init Pa Rin!

4/2/2014 10:25:47 PM

Ang init!

Naku, may bago pa ba sa ganito?

Natural na mainit sa Pilipinas. Aba, siyempre, dahil ang lugar natin ay tinuturing rin na isang ‘tropical country.’
Pero, ang init pa rin! Oo, para namang hindi naman tayo nasanay sa ganito. Summer eh!

Monolith Fun Run 2014 Launch at Cowboy Grill Quezon Ave. Branch

4/2/2014 10:50:00 PM

Here’s something I spotted over last month. Well, that was the evening of March 12 to be exact.


Monolith has launched their fun run for a cause. It will happen at April 27, Sunday, at the Mall of Asia grounds in Pasay City.

THE PRE-TAKE: WRESTLEMANIA XXX (PART 2)

4/2/2014 11:05:28 AM

Now, let’s move to the four main event cards of Wrestlemania XXX: first, it’s John Cena versus Bray Wyatt in a singles match. Yet, a singles match which seems to defy prophecies, generations, and… yes, the word ‘legacy’ itself.

Why Should You Attend iBlog10?

4/2/2014 9:56:29 PM

Last year, I attended their ninth seminar in over the same span of years. Actually, it’s the second day of the event.


I can still remember that one female student who tipped me for the conference (at that time, she was approaching me to be one of her group’s respondents in their thesis).

And after all of the timing, I managed to take home a gift pack (which was then I gave to my ex-girlfriend as a gift on our half-anniversary) and a T-shirt which I also won at their raffle.


But aside from the prizes, there are more things out there which are more worth to cherish – and that is what I called “learning.”

The Pre-Take: WrestleMania XXX (PART 1)

4/2/2014 11:05:23 AM

http://www.wwe.com

What you’re gonna do if Wrestlemania runs wild on you, brother?

Well, it’s barely half-week to go before Wrestlemania 30 rolls along at the Superdome in the Big Easy. Now, let’s just hope that the professional wrestling’s grandest annual event will not be another bust nor bullshit on our part as fans and spectators.

Well, I can really say I am still a spectator, since I only managed to get a hold of witnessing this thing since 2012 (though when I was a kid, I do watch several wrestling programs such as the precursor WWF).

First, the 59-year older Hulk Hogan returns to the sports entertainment world as the host for the evening.
But, moreover, let’s see what we can say about the upcoming cards in the Wrestlemania XXX.

Lookback: Usapang Lalake – "Globe"

4/1/2014 10:23:57 AM

At the moment, I had a lot of things in my mind; some things I wish I can really put into writing (yes, in both personal blog and on my other sideline).

Unfortunately though, the other side of my logical thinking, as well as emotions and my entire soul is not cooperating with me. And I can only cite reasons which are too personal to share with.

I tried dealing with this by hitting several tracks that served as my mood-setter. Again, it’s unfortunate things weren't successful.

However, I would like to share this clip with all of you.


This may be no perfect prank for an April Fool’s Day. In fact, the joke seemed to be on Kuya Jobert’s ‘jerky boyfriend’ role here.
