"Clash of the Titans"

This is the remake of the film "Clash of the Titans" released in 1981. The cast includes Sam Worthington (Perseus) of Avatar, Liam Neeson (Zeus) the guy from TAKEN(nice film!) and Ralph Fiennes (Hades) and its directed by Louis Leterrier (Incredible Hulk and Transporter 2) .

Here's the trailer of the film; its very promising with the background music The Bird and the Worm by The Used. Are you a DotA gamer? can you spot some of the characters of Dota in the movie? nyahahahaha...

MOA with Uncle Danny and cousins (and arnel pineda pa pala hehe)

Changing Lives: Timbaland and the Earth Hour

Changing Lives: Timbaland Live in Manila with Jojo and Justin Timberlake on March 27 @ SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds!

There were rumors before that JT will not be physically present in the concert, the producers/organizers will just put a large LCD screen and Justin will only perform via live feed... but now it appears that its not true... if you can notice in the new posters "with live performance".

What caught my attention was that the concert will be held at the same time with the "Earth Hour" .... Earth Hour 2010 takes place on Saturday 27 March at 8.30pm (local time) and is a global call to action to every individual, every business and every community throughout the world. It is a call to stand up, to take responsibility, to get involved and lead the way towards a sustainable future. Looks like with all that silence around the metro, we'll all be hearing Timbaland's voice for quite a time.

Participate. Help. Save. Support Earth Hour.

StarWars in Mall of Asia!!!!!

I was crossing the street bound to work while I saw this one traffic enforcer that absolutely caught my attention. I approached him immediately... He was bit surprised when I asked him if its okay to take some pictures of him. He asked back why do I want it, then I told him that I'm very amazed to see a Jedi in the middle of the street and I am a huge fan of StarWars.

Buti naman mabait si manong... game na game na nagposing para saken... nayhahahahaha

More posts to come!!!!

I found a fossilized ant inside my Pen! =p

Amber (or, technically, resinite) is fossilized tree resin (not sap), which has been appreciated for its color and natural beauty since Neolithic

Yes, the pictures are from the movie "Jurassic Park".... the dinosaurs in the film were created by cloning genetic material found in mosquitos that fed on dinosaur blood preserved in AMBER. It sometimes contains animals or plant matter that became caught in the resin as it was secreted. Insects, spiders and their webs, annelids, frogs,crustaceans, bacteria and amoebae, marine microfossils,wood, flowers and fruit, hair, feathers and other small organisms have been recovered in ambers dating to 130 million years ago.

In my case... an ANT
!!!!! nyahahahahahaha


im sorry I dont have a nice camera.... tsk

I dont have any idea how it got inside... hehe.. cool.

Well, what can i say? Its the Pacman show!.... Im quite disappointed about what happened, Clottey rarely threw punches and always kept his guard resulting to a little boring fight. Thanks to Manny's very entertaining punch combinations making the bout worth watching. Pacquiao threw 1.231 punches, which 246 of it connected while Clottey only landed 108 of 399 the whole night. I never had a chance to watch it live somewhere, so I just listened over the radio... What do you think about Arnel Pineda's performance? He's the one who sang the National Anthem right? I dont know if its just my ears hehe .. is the last part kinda off-tuned?? Anyway, Im pretty sure that the National Historical Institute is not happy than anyone else about it. =p

The very surprising "Pompyang punch" .. I never seen anything like it before... nice pacman! parang FPJ lang ah... buti hindi dumating yung mga pulis sa huli.. nyahahahahahaha . During the report of Chino Trinidad on 24 oras, he said that Manny always makes fun of Freddie Roach and does it every sparring... no one expected that Manny would actually use it in the fight. COOL...

I just blogged about Vince Carter's amazing dunk, leaping over a French player during the Sydney Olympics a week ago(see it here). Well, guess what? someone attempted to make a his own version of it and he succeed! Fullerton's Gerard Anderson goes Vince Carter on CSUN.

Cal State Fullerton forward Gerard Anderson is one of college basketball's most accomplished dunkers.Watchout for this guy when he makes it to the NBA.

THE TWILIGHT SAGA: ECLIPSE trailer is out!!!


The real-life King's Rolling Death Cradle! (tekken move)

I posted a tweet earlier this morning asking about how to do King's Rolling Death Cradle move in Tekken 6. So what I did, I searched for it on youtube, hoping someone might have uploaded a tutorial vid on how to do it... and yes i found a video or two of it, what made it more interesting is that i found a real version of it! im not kidding! watch it yourself!!!!

Watch first the arcade game version of it ....

Behold the real-life version of it... This is crazy cool!!!!

Manami Toyota is a Japanese professional wrestler. One of her finishing moves is called the "Manami roll". Now I wonder if the makers of Tekken copied King's Rolling Death Cradle move from Toyota's signature shocker.

Im not a huge fan of the original Alice in Wonderland (movie). In fact I dont like the book either, but when i saw a cartoon adaptation of it on T.V.(the tagalized one =p) I kinda liked it . I cant wait to see Tim Burton's version of it. I think Johnny Depp was the best choice for playing the role of the Mad Hatter. Though Alice looks older here, maybe it has something to do with the story. Well, if its by Tim Burton and Depp tandem, expect it to be amazing! Can't wait to watch this!!!

The TJ Giants celebrate their victory after sweeping the best-of-seven title series (4-0) of the 2010 Philippine Basketball Association-KFC Philippine Cup.

Of course, one of the factors why this strong team won the PBA cup, its because of the breed of Red Warriors present on the floor...

Purefoods is nothing without UE....

P ? R ? F O O D S = can't spell it without UE . . .

Heto hintayin nyo, can't wait to see him play sa PBA... umiinom lang ng weight gain ngeun, palakas hehe... idol astig!

Gay ka sir! hehe

I remember listening to Mo twister's radio program some time last year and I heard the trio (Mo, Mojo and Grace Lee) talking about one topic... "What female song that if a male performer (im talking about a legitimate, straight guy hehe) would make his own version of it or his guy rendition of it, would appear as the gayest song ever?" Mo mentioned about a song by Beyonce, "If I were a Boy".. well, its pretty obvious that if a straight guy would attempt to make a male version of it the title would be " If I were a girl"... then months later a male version got out and im not sure who did it...

But wait! I just found out that there's one song that can be a candidate for the gayest song ever for a straight guy to sing... have you heard of Katy Perry's "I KISSED A GIRL"??? ... now its going to be " I kissed a guy/boy"!.. gay! agree??
I kissed a guy, and I liked it.. bading amp! wahahahahahahahaha =]
