Bored as I was three years ago, I had been a contributor to Dinosaur Comics, an excellent web comic with a huge twist. Unlike other comics, Dinosaur Comics uses a static series of panel art throughout its three and so years of existence. I remember how one person compared DC to the formula behind poetry … Continue reading Dinosaur Comics: Being and Metaphysics
Oh wow, I haven’t been tagged for something in ages. In the spirit of the Holy Week movie marathons here in the Philippines, my TOP 10 Movies of All Time in no particular order: 1. Misery (starring Cathy Bates) 2. Oscar (with Sylvester Stallone — he was fricken’ awesome) 3. Dead Alive / Braindead (directed … Continue reading Tagged: Top 10 Movies of All Time
I never really understood the desire behind buying a tablet PC. The niche for these types of laptops is very small – thanks to the whopping price tag. The words “tablet PC” and “cheap” definitely don’t go together. It is usually marketed to doctors and CEO’s for more “effective note taking” but between P160,000 and … Continue reading Toshiba Portege R400: Are Tablet PC’s still attractive?
There’s something bugging me. When I started subscribing to Audible three months ago, I noticed that my search field for books greatly diminishes when I’m logged in. For instance, when I do a search for Neil Gaiman on Audible without signing in, I get a good size of his past works including Anansi Boys, Neverwhere, … Continue reading Some… wait. MORE realizations about Audiobooks, DRM and Neil Gaiman

UPDATE: It seems that the OLPC deal is still nearing agreement with Don Bosco. I just find it odd that an announcement was made to all the members of the OLPC Facebook page. Charles Chen made an announcement over the OLPC Facebook page that they have become successful in partnering with PBSP (Philippine Business for … Continue reading Updated: OLPC to pilot in Don Bosco Technical School?
According to Nike Philippines, this is the very first globally produced television commercial for Nike and Manny. The ad has elicited some comments on production value vis a vis being globally produced. Honestly I may have expected more, but this is a commercial that I’ve grown to love watching it over and over again – … Continue reading New Manny Pacquiao Nike TV Commercial
Thank you to everyone who came! I’ve basically condensed the formalities over here if you want to know more about what we do – especially concerning our Blog Donor VIP card. Huge congratulations to Anton, Kiven and Jehz for being our pioneer top earners for the first month! Many thanks to Paolo and Red Box … Continue reading The Blog Bank Ad Network: Now accepting Blog Donations in the Philippines
Malu Fernandez, the writer who has spurred the wrath of the OFW blogosphere has written an article on blogging. I wrote my fairly fair coverage of that event and now I’m going to ride on the search engine stream of sharing her last name with my own thoughts on her article:
How small the world is. Mia, one of my friends from college sent me a link to MicroMinds by Jaycie and Honey. If you’re at a loss for a gift to give your geeky friend, then look no more. These miniatures merge the very best between geekiness and fashion accessories. The necklaces are around P550.00 … Continue reading MicroMinds: Miniature gifts for your geeky significant other (or for yourself!)
Has anyone in the Wii community in the Philippines seen copies of this anywhere around the metro? Although it was only just recently launched I’m hoping to find a copy soon at DataBlitz as they get pretty updated with games releases anyway. In any case, add me up when you do find a copy and … Continue reading Super Smash Brothers BRAWL in the Philippines?
I tried to make it a habit to post my monthly audiobook download. So far I’ve recommended three titles (Stephen Colbert’s I Am America and So Can You, Bob Newhart’s I Shouldn’t Even Be Doing This, and the dramatization of Sweeney Todd and the String of Pearls) in this blog and I by far have … Continue reading Love-hate with audiobooks and “real” books – capping with science fiction
Barfly on the bar; MacBook Air right below. Thanks to Noemi and Butch, we were able to grab hold of Palanca award winner Butch Dalisay for an afternoon of coffee and expostulations on creative writing. Talks like these usually have an open ended flow for words and ideas thus by the end of the session … Continue reading Stalking Butch Dalisay (and his MacBook Air)
A short 3 minute video I created on how to make use of Mail to resize huge photos. This isn’t really a trick – a lot of Apple Mail users know about the resize option but don’t necessarily use it for resizing photos back to the desktop.
I’m talking tomorrow at the AIM together with Andrian Lee on the subject of corporate blogging. With my boil spots on the verge of healing (I acquired a severe boil in my last Ho Chi Minh – Siam Reap trip), I need a motivator to help alleviate the pain on my side and I guess … Continue reading Kraft bags 2007 Global IMC Awards Thanks to Philippine Bloggers
