When I was young, I tried to make an adult-style Archie comic. Back in the day, I collected a lot of Pugad Baboy and Beerkada books. I think I have a lot of Arnold Arre books as well. Pol Medina Jr. and Lyndon Gregorio shaped my thoughts in the sense that I can perhaps do what they did and choose the "cool side" of the entertainment and media industry. This prompted me to dream. While yeah, procrastination reared its ugly head, and this project has long been shelved, it's nic
Dwight Ramos was at the forefront when he said that he didn't like the crowd booing Chot Reyes. Here's the thing - who in the right mind would want to coach Gilas Pilipinas with this kind of mindset and environment? https://twitter.com/ChrisDTan/status/1564245215036461057?s=20&t=7vsiSEY4kHpvudhx__nApQ If we're not going to cheer Chot Reyes - regardless of the outcome - the next coach for me would be Leo Austria. He's another coach that just can't catch a break from the critic
Three episodes in. Also, Episode 3 never fails. I think it's been like this since the dawn of time. Just check out the third episode of Ranma 1/2, Tenchi Muyo, and El Hazard to get my point. Anyway, I like funny anime romcoms but ever since I discovered actual live romcoms, I stopped watching anime. With that said, I randomly pressed a show that is on Bilibili and this happened. A Couple of Cuckoos. I think this is Mara Clara on drugs. Basically, the two kids were separated a
When I was a college student back in 2001, I thought... Wait. My classmates thought it would be cool to see me act in a short film. HAHAHAHAHAHA! First of all, I was young and I would do everything to pass my Film course. Also, work hasn't dampened our spirits. Deep inside, each and every one of my classmates thought they are going to be the next Lino Brocka or Ishmael Bernal. Anyway, I don't know how we came up with the narrative but it feels like I was portraying a dude who
Gilas Pilipinas is in a slump and you can't solely blame this on Chot Reyes or Tab Baldwin for that matter. Again, it's the players that need to have focus here and not a couple of men on the sidelines. Praise Tab Baldwin all you want, but there is a reason why he messed up a lot of relationships during his stay here. We have seen imports from all eras thinking they are bigger and better in all aspects of life. And I guess there is a reason why coaches like Tim Cone and Jong
Seasonal plugs. Every promo writer regardless of the creative field will encounter seasonal plugs. I can't work Valentine plugs because according to people... I have a tendency to create sleazy concepts. It's hard to make religion-based plugs for an international audience because there are understandable restrictions. And sometimes, we live and die on punctuations. So unless otherwise, I will follow Republic Act No. 9492 which states that National Heroes Day is written as NAT
I have been batshit busy over the course of two weeks. But... Also during that time, I have been acquiring info on old PBA stats. It came to the point that I commissioned a person for screenshots. I don't want to say the dude's name (he might hate it) but he is VERY accommodating, especially in my quest to complete the MVP seasons of the best PBA players. Again, my intention has always been to spread info about old-school PBA and why the Crispa-Toyota rivalry and the 90s team

I frequently discuss my love for the 90s. I thought that era is the BEST because none of the teams really got the advantage Crispa and Toyota in the league's first decade and most SMC teams in the 21st century had. Even Alaska, despite its success in the mid-to-late 90s, can't really be said to be dominant because at one point San Miguel and Purefoods had it. Then Sunkist almost had a grand slam in 1995 and then in the late-90s, the Beermen, Ginebra, and Shell started to make
Today is Kobe Bryant Day. It's probably why instead of being angsty at work and at life, I just SCOWLED at people. I've been saying this ever since the world witnessed his awesomeness in 1996. I hate the Kobe Bryant that wore number 8 with the exception of when he trolled the entire Toronto Raptors squad by unleashing 81 points. With that said, Kobe number 24 is such an awesome baller. He grew up from an immature leader wannabe and developed into a legend that drew the respec

How can you not be impressed with a four-eyed, talking red horse? So I barely watch ads not unless they have a hint of "Gigil Media" in them but I like this. It has a hint of machoness and at the same time, it's funny as hell. Nice. Anyway, Lloyd Zaragoza battled Pancho Magno in an Over The Top event wherein they need to beat a certain amount of opponents in a given time. I like how some challenges are strong while others are well... odd but entertaining.
Yes, I do think this floating baby crocodile GIF is somewhat relaxing. Also, I have been a lot of tea lately and for some reason, it soothes my stress. Especially if I combine it with Losartan and Stresstabs. Yes.
This is a late post. And here's an unpopular opinion. I don't think it's a good idea for the league to retire the #6 jersey. It's not that I don't want the NBA to honor Bill Russell. As a Boston Celtics fan, having his jersey in the rafters of every team in existence is just the stuff of legends. But they have already honored Bill Russell. Seeing Bill Russell loving the fact that the Finals MVP award is named after him is something no one can ever take from him. This is just
In some ways, I have seen better-looking head kicks. With that said, Leon Edwards unleashed a finishing blow to upset Kamaru Usman. Not only did Edwards even his win-loss record, but he also captured the UFC Welterweight Title in UFC 278. Nice.
Okay. Let's just say that I am WWE-biased. With that said, despite his critics, I am a Dean Ambrose fan. I get that he's going to be Jon Moxley from hereon out, but pre-germophobe Lunatic Fringe is just a cool person to root for. I thought Moxley's AEW decision made sense. If Seth Rollins is on Raw and Roman Reigns is on Smackdown (for example), I just can't see Ambrose becoming the king of NXT. AEW needs his star power at that point and in some ways, he is too established to
I usually do my music research on Sundays. I wake up at around 10am... check on the things I need to do up until lunchtime and then prep up for a Pasig drive. Then before driving, I turn on my mobile data, open the Shazam app, and either check out Magic 89.9 or Jam 88.3. Magic is where I get re-acquainted with the current music. That's why if you see K-Pop or American Pop here, that means I am looking for that particular song to be in a particular project. For example... this
Normally, I don't do blind pre-orders. With that said, insiders have told me this Funko is Pinoy-exclusive under the Funko Pop Rocks banner. Let's just say this. I bought a Darna pop and am good with this, but I never collected a Jollibee pop and have since regretted buying the Ateneo, DLSU, and Trese pops. I think I just bought it for the sake of "hype." However, I am collecting Pop Rocks Funko pops. In fact, I just pre-ordered Oasis and U2 pops, I am locked on the new Micha
I guess I'm down with The Addams Family because they have this unique look. I know they are often compared with The Munsters but TAF has this unique array of characters that's just cooler. Tim Burton made this so it's going to be great. Catherine Zeta-Jones is also in the cast and if you think that she stayed far too long from the spotlight to show up in some B-grade production as a supporting character... ... you are mistaken. It is also billed as a comedy... although I saw
