(note to readers, this will be a filipino post.)

I was very annoyed by ABS-CBN’s show “The Buzz” (and the rest of Philippine “showbiz” shows, more on that later) because all of their stories are “exclusives” and follow the same spiel everytime they present a story and i just lost credibility on these shows even as an entertainment medium, its too tacky and they are laden with “misinformation” and forced promotions, then if its the truth in the case of some reporters, they hide them and they dont talk about it (im referring to Ricky Lo, can somebody please make this person speak more info when he writes about true stories and lets spy on his “DPA’s” 🙂 )

Thats it for today.

My 2 cents on the Marian Rivera Taray Youtube video, wala nang magagawa ang ch 7 sa “no Video camera” rule nyo, mga cellphone kasi ng mga artista may magandang video camera eh!  Pati na rin crew, just force them to use camera-less phones dummies!  And HDTV cameras are now cheap to do HDTV!

Enough already, moving on, nothing to see here, this is already an archive piece (and im talking about Miley)

(editors note: This post was supposed to be for last week, but since new stuff happened and it would be a shame to trash what is written for that day, so i recycled it and made it relevant.)

Its day 8 for Miley’s nightmare at the Vanity Fair (Copyright by “naksd”) and the news does seem to calm down and as a result, there isnt new candids for miley taken by the photogs or ordinary folk. There is no news about her before and whats she is up to and i heard that Mickey Mouse (Disney) ordered her and the gang to stay low and dont show up until this whole thing is back to normal and we can see her again. well, last weekend or so, she went to Disney World over at Florida (will go there after i tackle Disneyland) to “participate” at the Disney Channel Games, but not as a team member of any team but just to perform her new album pieces which after this blogger finishes posting what you are reading now, will go on the net to listen to the new songs so i wont tell yet if they are good or not.

Ok, that Backless pic is my Cellphone wallpaper and im used to it, but its cropped just to see Miley’s Face up to like 1/8’ths of her body.

i wanted to see her, back in action (no pun intended) away from this mess and i would say, lets move on. This is no more than a “Protein Spill” over at Disneyland (look it up!, “Inside the Magic” Podcast is where i heard that) but made by an actress and people have all the ammo they can throw at her. When she is Physically hurt, quits showbiz or worse, then we really be worried.

More of this and less of that!

(insert video of Miley and Mandy)

Hey, any mention of GTA IV over the news? Overshadowed by Miley eh? I would not play it when my cousins are awake. Im still annoyed by the fact that in the Philippines, GTA is treated as a kids game and i see kids as young as 5 playing it mistaken to Gran Turismo.

The Slacker Portable Radio, i got it already but im having a headache using USB to update the songs and almost wrecked the office network due to Internet connection sharing, but using the devicescape feature and i have a monthly subscription to a network of wifi hotspots since no DSL at home and cannot use Cellphone data on some internet things, i was glad that the slacker connected to mcdonalds (cheaper than Starbucks and brighter lights too!) and is now updating the songs and channels as im typing this. i read on forums that it sounds like XM radio, yipes! But that was on earlier units, i also read that SQ increased over time and i would say again, AAC-HE V2 sounds better than WMA or any other below 128kbit solution out there. And the unit does not dissapoint, the tracks have very good stereo separation and they dont exhibit a lot of compression artifacts unlike the dreaded XM radio. Search this blog for my short review of AAC-HE V2. For the record, XM uses AAC-HE V1 but the bitrates are too low even for AAC-HE V1 at 32 to 40 kbps, the target bitrate In my opinion for V1 is 64kbps to sound like a 128kbps MP3, and Slacker for the portable uses AAC-HE V2 at around 40kbps.

Some other things on the Slacker radioas a service, if you create a station instead of using the pre-made stations, expect a lot of repeats that i thought they were too thoughtful to repeat songs that i like but its annoying so i just loaded a lot of pre-made stations and just left 2 stations that i made myself, i KIIS Clone and a Radio Disney Clone that does not play any Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus Songs! Darn Licensing, though the Song “See You Again” plays on the KIIS clone i did. Slacker, please dont crash and burn!

Oh boy! They are talking about the successors to Miley Cyrus already!

For example, Selena Gomez. I look at her as the Contra-Miley, she can do 99% of the stuff Miley can do and if the mouse really wants, they can develop Selena and her show “Wizards of Waverly Palace” to overtake “Hannah Montana” in kids hearts (and mine). She also uses youtube to have a show with Demi Lovato who i dont know much about her so i dont care!.

Aly & AJ, are you kidding me! They are a different league and i dont see them as “Miley Replacements!”

And watch out for Demi Lovato and those Jonas Brothers when the movie “camp rock” premieres, i have no idea if they can crush HSM or HM.

darn it, now im thinking if Miley did the shoot because she wanted to or she was tricked by that Annie “Le-boo-boo” (dunno her real last name), just watch the April 30 airing of the tonight show by Jay Leno’s monologue on (i think its available there) or your favorite internet video site and he made fun of Annie in relation she wanted to “undress” Queen Elizabeth! Words cant describe what i saw tonight, i was laughing off the floor and jay leno did not make fun of Miley, he is good to her.

Back to Annie the photog which i still dont remember her last name, she actually did some wholesome shots of celebs for Disneyland/Disney World which is ironic since Disney was quite angry with the VF Photos, see here (insert photos of annie for Disney)

Ok, enough of the Backless issue already and can we talk about when she will be perky like the past couple of weeks? If only i met her in those times at the coffee shop and out and about in town…

Now im happy that i can use the internet anywhere there is a hotspot that i have been paying for already instead of $2.95 to an insane $10.00 per session! Monthly is cheaper and im on a no contract subscription is this will be temporary and when we get back DSL at the house, i might use free wifi hotspot use or a small add-on that they offer if they have it.
