DA BUZZ!! Tumahimik na kayo dyan!

Posted in RANTS!, Showbiz, usapang pilipinas Sa 7:12 hapon ni naksd

(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!

The Trying Hard Gamer, Miley Cyrus’ Us Weekly cover and Poker??

Posted in Asus Eee PC, Miley Cyrus, Opinions, RANTS!, Showbiz, Usapang Amerika Sa 12:00 umaga ni naksd

Since Having my Asus Eee PC and Netflix (and work), i have not used my Sony PSP Slim as a Game device, it more as a portable web browser/Video player/Podcast streamer over wifi and soon to be skype phone by a firmware update promised by the end of this month. Still i want to play games on it if i had the time, im waiting for the Kingdom hearts game for the PSP since i like to try out a RPG (Pokemon does not count, i did not even finish it. I let my Pokemaniac half-cousin finish it) and im into Disney.

(the small keys on my Eee is cramping my hands!)

Now i want to talk about Miley Cyrus and the way she looks now. before, she is this young girl that has a small show and she looked like this:

Miley Brown hair

And now with all the popularity she has, she looks like this:

Miley now

(Photo credits: mileyfansgallery.com part of mileyfans.net)

(see more examples of how she looks on mileyfansgallery.com)

and then i saw her in the cover of Us weekly this week and oh dear, she looks older than 15 in that picture:

usweeklymileycover

(Photo credit: An Article on usmagazine.com http://www.usmagazine.com/miley_cyrus_and_the_new_power_girls_no_drinking_no_drugs_no_clubs)

Photoshop gone wild

And oh, this reminds me of Hilary Duff back in the Lizzie Mcguire days, where is she?  Will i be able to see her in person?  In my office im “attending” to, one of my co-workers looks either like Hilary Duff or Ethel Booba.

Disney is good at promoting them and when they move on to other roles, its a challenge to be another character.

Better finish “The Devil Wears Prada” before going to bed.

One more thing!

How in the world did Poker become a sport?????  Sugalan iyon diba!!?!?!?!?  And dont get me started on Horse-racing

Procrastonation is a bad thing, Jennylyn M. and Mark H. Updates and “wowowee”‘s annoyance.

Posted in Computer, RANTS!, Showbiz Sa 8:51 hapon ni naksd

Alam nyo ba na ang kalaban ko sa pag-blog eh ang procrastination?  I have lots of ideas floating around my head but hindi ko sila regularly be put in writing.  Plus masakit pa ulo ko sa “marimar” sa TV!

Anyway, update sa EEE PC ko, small keys kinda bug me (but then on the bigger laptop that i was borrowing all along), i can play aac+ streams from pinoy-radio.com without installing another app.  I have Skype and IM on auto-start.

Jennylyn Mercado finally is knocked up by Donald Duck (a.k.a Patrick Garcia).  Ang layo pala ng edad nila and i wonder how he and she felt (place here where you know what they are doing why she is pregnant now.) Im worried (kinda) on her health as i reported last year, also bagsak ang carrer.  She needs to do a Valerie Conception at the end.

(medyo masakit nang mag type sa maliit na keyboard)

And itong si Mark herras and Lian of E.B babes.  Hindi ko type si Lian, nothing to see, gusto ko si Mae if tinanong ako.

And itong si Pokwang sa “wowowee”, Wierd.  And si willie eh nananawagan na manood nalang tayo sa TV ng Bday special nya, para hindi “magulo”

News flash!  I tried to play Multimedia streaming files on Firefox and mplayer opened and played the thing on Linux.  Nice

Ay Naku! I Have a EEE and im not afraid to use it, salamat DVR and I Love you Miley Cyrus (as a friend)

umm, one of my impluse purchases that i made these past months since getting my “card” and buying stuff that people generally dont have that im interested too.  It’s the Asus EEE PC!  In fact, it will be the “laptop” im using right now.

The Model i bought is $350 but was jacked up to $390 due to the sales tax and shipping but it was worth it instead of waiting for a week or paying more to get it sooner at another venue (website/B&M).  It has a 900 mhz Intel celeron Mobile which is very fast for the linux installed, 512 MB of RAM which is plenty for Linux; ok for Windows XP, 4GB Flash drive that acts as the hard drive of this laptop and no moving parts to break in case of a violent shock like dropping it.  has No CD-rom/DVD reader/ (teka, may Away sa PBA!) writer built-inl but you can attach an external USB drive to it; if you need to install windows, the 7 inch screen is beautiful and i legible though challenged by some programs to display properly.  The Keyboard needs getting used to and im getting errors if i type fast due to the smaller keys.

Applications include Firefox (same function as in windows so i used the same settings and extensions), A yahoo compatible IM program (Pidgin), Skype, Openoffice (Why use MS Office if you dont have $$$???) and etc.  You can add apps to it though it has to be linux and for a beginner, can be intimidating unlike windows with a setup program. in the EEE pc’s linux, you have to open up the command line to open up a program to install or directly from the command line.

Basta, i just like it.  Sure you cant play PC games on linux without some messy elbow grease (cedega,winex), you need to manualy install Windows XP (Forget Vista) on a 4GB SSD.  But for what its doing, web, IM, Office and blogging, panalo!

Ano Itong Ratings War na kahit nasa amerika ako eh napapanood ko yung mga akusasyon nila in between commercial like it “applies” here!?!?  Buti nalang may DVR to skip them, sige na, maka CH 7 ako dahil nasa Dos si Cristy Fermin which I DONT TRUST THE MOST!!!! Basta, saan maganda, doon tayo nood.  To go off a tangent regarding Cristy, kung artista ako, matakot ako kay Ricky Lo or (to some extent) Lolit Solis pag may nasabi sila sa akin.  And dito sa amerika, ok lang mag-tirahan sa mga TV shows nila about each other.

Now speaking of amerika, I Really like Miley Cyrus that if i had a chance (and a ticket and time to boot), pinanood ko yung Concert nya though mabibingi ako sa daming girls at ma-susufocate sa fireworks like in this video:

BTW, If you played the video.  It is for the 3D Movie which im telling you, sulit ang 3D movies (pag maganda ang story of course!).  In Fact, i have ordered Tickets last December 2007 for a 3:00PM, Feb 3, 2008 screening.  Baka maubusan ng ticket eh like sa mismong concert.  Felling ko sa mag-kakaroon ng stand-by lines para sa mga late kumuha ng tickets.

At masarap mag-blog muli.

Im (REALLY) back! “Marimar” is violent and Xm satellite Radio.

Posted in Announcement, RANTS!, review Sa 12:06 umaga ni naksd

Ok, with a new theme and a new attitude (promise!).  I want my online presence to be heard again.  I hope Google does not demote my pagerank with them.  And lately i have been receiving comments regarding Jewel Mische.  Im not Jewel or Related to her.  And her “official” blog is down at the moment.  http://starstruck.igma.tv/blogs/jewel/

I hate the show “Marimar” on GMA7 (or in my case, GMA Pinoy TV.)  I think it is the most violent telenovela i have ever seen.  The villains are so sadistic and the only thing missing is that i get a Light gun for those Gun video games and shoot them down (Please?) I cant get satisfaction in watching this show, i lose my appetite when i see somebody get hurt physically and emotionally.  Thanks goodness i have XM satellite radio with me to drown-out the audio from the TV which is a segue (Segway for those people who know the electric scooter) to my next topic which is my New Pioneer Inno which receives XM Satellite Radio service.

I got the MP3 playing, portable satellite radio receiver for $199.99 +tax at Best Buy, it was on sale from the price of $250.  I got 3 months free and free activation provided i pay up 3 months in advance and i like it!  FM radio Sucks in song content.  The Hits station (102.7 KIIS FM) is like an hip-hop/R&B station with repetitious music from African-American artists (though i have nothing against them.).  This Sat radio of mine is the solution.  The downside of it is the Sound Quality (which is the problem of XM, not the Inno), acceptable but could be better.  The SQ was worse before, i read on the forums.

and yeah, it replaced my MP3 player since it plays them and organizes well.  And you will never hear from me that i bought an Ipod Shuffle-Nano-Classic-Touch.  An exception is the iphone which when my current phone breaks, i want to replace it with this (will have to keep up with the Sim-unlock scene since Apple keeps closing the SIM Unlocks on a regular basis now.  Expensive AT&T!)

Ok, ok! New stuff. I got the PSP, Britney or MTV Blows, Filipino channels on Directv and A girl

Posted in RANTS!, review, Showbiz, Usapang Amerika Sa 1:08 hapon ni naksd

Fine, i got some ideas already and here it is.

Before i begin, Starting now.  With Laptop in Lap.  I will spend one hour or less writing a new article about tech, work life (later next year nalang ang school life, last chance BTW.) etcetera.

I have been wanting a Sony PSP since launch and having played with it at Sony exhibits at malls TWICE!  I wanted one. Before arriving in the states.  I saw more kids with PSP’s than Nintendo DS’s.  And finally after my first paycheck, i was psyched to have a PSP of my own (No Pirated….umm i mean homebrew friendly firmware and hacking) but then the slimmer PSP was announced, great!  i gotta hold that purchase till the first week of september.

Now its September 13.  It has been 4 days since i finally got my own PSP, it is the new silver one.  Slimmer indeed.  I was surprised how light it is, lighter than the Nintendo DS lite, which i also have for Pokemon Diamond.  It costs $216 with tax and it comes with the “Daxter” game which is fun but frustrating, a Family Guy UMD video disc which sana ay simpsons nalang (ok, more tagalog in the coming sentences) and the most important of all, a 1 gigabyte memory stick duo.  If have have purchased the core slim PSP in black and buy the MS separately, lugi ako dahil wala pa yung Daxter na laro.

Graphics on this thing looks like the PS2 console, the web browser is better than the Nintendo DS browser on the DS, I was able to download podcasts (or any other file) directly to the PSP and have i mentioned the graphics

I wanted to have these games,  A tony hawk game, crazy taxi and Gran turismo 4 which sana naman ay lumabas na next year since pwede na ang 333 mhz ng PSP.

Now going to Pwitney Jeers! (A.K.A, “Hit me baby one more time” of fame)  Kadiri sya sa VMA’s ng MTV.  Hindi pa ba sya nag pa lipo or something?  Anyways, i never wanted britney anyway.  I don’t find her “Hot”.  Maybe Vanessa Anne Hudgens na lumabas ang BOLD pics nya sa internet is hotter.  Kawawa naman is Vanessa  and i will side with her pero pag nag-ala Lindsay lohan sya, i will rant her out like britney.

High School Musical and High School Musical 2 is still unwatched on my Directv DVR which keeps on having problems, now and then demanding a reset.  which brings me to the Filipino channels on the Telly.  Weird, strange and reduces homesickness.  I got the Whole package, not just the ABS-CBN stuff.  And thank goodness for the DVR since nasa work nga ako and i can watch my shows when i come home or on the weekends and when my lolo watches Horse racing (ang nagpamahal ng monthly ko sa Directv) marathons.

Pardon the less than stellar character spacing since ngayon lang muli akong nagtype.

Now advice naman please, i like this Girl at work but noong nakasabay ko sya noong pag-uwi namin from work, nakita ko sa cellphone wallpaper nya na may guy with her in the pic.  Maybe it is her brother or maybe the Boyfriend.  She is nice towards me as she is also nice to me, she is just one year older than me.  I am not really rushing for a relationship but i would like more time with her since she is in another dept in the office.  Now what?

ERAP, DAPAT NOT GUILTY ON BOTH COUNTS, GLORIA ADMINSTRATION ANG GUILTY!

Grey in L.A. So far….

Posted in Daily Life, Pinoy Big Brother Season 2, RANTS!, Usapang Amerika Sa 9:07 umaga ni naksd

No Work, Stuck in the house.

I want to work just to have money for the stuff that i want (did i mention that already in an earlier post?). Long-term plans in my book is within 3 years, when i go to college, when i have my own car (if i pass the test and not hit anybody :p ).

I have applied at Different stores online, Apple (No response yet, now that’s the place i want to be, FREE IPHONE!), AT&T (Rejected by employer, at least you use an Iphone there.) and other tech related stores. Also applied at the likes of Wal-mart as a last resort.

This is the only time that settled down to gather my thoughts and write it in this post.

Before i begin, this is an all-english post. Tagalog postings maybe in the next post and im typing faster than before but slower on touch typing (the type that you don’t look at the keyboard.)

I want to get A Sony PSP when i get a job and i have worked for a month and a half, i think. So i can play games, go online and listen to podcasts, watch Videocasts. Maybe by the time i can buy one. Sony might have released a revision of the PSP ala Nintendo DS Lite.

We drove by Hollywood and saw the chinese theater with the footprints, the Hollywood sign, The walk of fame. Also drove by Beverly Hills and saw rodeo dr, the Hotel used in Pretty woman. I will go back to those places except Beverly Hills since the goods are pretty expensive there and i care more on the actors/actresses than what they wear.

Great, no more stuff coming off my head. Oh wait. Miley Cyrus!

She is the next Hilary Duff and my goodness, A New CD, a tour that i think will be sold-out and at the age of 14, she looks and acts like a 16 year old or even older! (and again, i think i have posted this before.) Lets see if i can see her in person within this year.

The executive summary:

And let’s also see what will happen of the fourth of july tommorrow.

Pbb 2: Maricris force evicted! My nokia 3230 ang dj mo

Posted in Daily Life, Pinoy Big Brother Season 2, RANTS!, Showbiz Sa 11:32 umaga ni naksd

as per kuya’s decision because of maricris’ violent behavior to herself. She was force evicted and i actually felt sorry for her because before the decision was given to her. She and bea ay nagkabati na. Kung bitter parin sya, fine! Get her outta there! But i really felt sorry for her now. Si maricris eh may problems sa father nya so ganoon ang ugali nya.

And wendy, dionne & saicy are up for eviction. Malamang si dionne or si saicy ang ma-evict. Wendy, nah! Im rooting for her (for now 😉 )

you might notice that my capitalizations and punctuation spacing is a little different because im writing this post in a cellphone. A nokia 3230. And i use opera mini for visiting my wordpress admin to publish this blog. Do you know what, i liked that cellphone browser because it loads pages fast, i can read sites better than the built-in web browser and i dont even know if the built-in browser will open up the sites that opera mini can.

Ok, my review of this nokia 3230 cellphone. I like the screen, i needed to lower the screen brightness because thats how bright it is. The interface is snappy. The fm radio rocks but when in a moving vehicle it constantly switches from stereo to mono, its not that good in reception kaya ganon. Keypad is good, but not great.

My apps that are installed on my phone is of course, opera mini. Gmail. And Fexplorer.

Ok, since i have an fm radio on my phone. I listened to good times with mo twister and again, i dont know who in the world is the guest but interesting otherwise. But one caller got a lot of attention. This guy called in and said that the gay people are sick of an mental illness or something and he cursed a word on air. The f word if you want to know. This caused a furry of calls to the station bashing the gay basher. Personally, i have nothing against the pink population, they are good people.

The post that was supposed to be posted on thursday

Posted in Computer, News, Opinions, RANTS!, Showbiz, tips Sa 12:44 hapon ni naksd

Ito na ang Matagal ko nang dapat na blog post, ang tagal kong hindi nag post mostly because im too lazy to write and ngayon lang ako nagkaroon ng initiative to write a new one up from my notes written during the week.

Also, ang daming nangyari this week. The Julia Campbell incident, The Virginia Tech
University Mass Murder by that Psycho dude (i feel sorry for that guy and i give my
condolences to the family and friends of the ones who perished in the incident), Gringo
Honasan Bailed his way out of jail, French Elections (which why i even care???), so on and
so forth na nakalimutan ko na. I will not expound on these topics since they are better
covered by other bloggers or the mainstream media.

Ito na muna ang unang topic of interest ko, Alec Baldwin’s Insulting Voicemail message to
her beautiful 11-year-old daugther na nailabas sa internet and was even played back in its
entirity (sans profanity) on CNN. My question is, why did the message “leaked” out in the
wild, c’mon that is a voicemail message and unless inilabas ng asawa…este ex-asawa over
custody rights or galit ang anak so inilabas iyon, hindi sya madaling ma-hack ng iba. Oh i
take it back, Paris “Sl*T” Hilton’s phone account was hacked easily. Bottom Line, this is
what you get for divorce darn it!

“Good times with Mo Twister”, lagi kong naabutan yung show na wala si Dj MO. Last wendsday
ako nag tune in for “forbidden questions” (first time kong narinig ‘to) and wala nanaman si
Mo that morning. And i don’t know their guest kung sino sya but interesting yung mga
tanong and sagot sa kanya.

Sugapa talaga sa “campaigning” or what i wanted to call it “promotion” yung mga local
candidates namin sa area of responsibility ko (Congressman, Mayor down to the councilors).
I don’t even hear from the opposition or there is no opposition. Yesterday, i saw in
action in bright day light, some teenagers tieing up a political ad for a councilor at the
back of a house without permission from the owner. Sarap sunugin yung ad noong kandidato na iyon. From a first time voter’s perspective, im excited to vote but i have told you that baka hindi na ako makaboto due to some other reasons that i might not post here in this site due to other reasons nga.

And init ng panahon ngayon! Yun lang.

And on to tech related paragraphs.

Ayaw ko nang mag-tambay sa intenet na naka dial-up lang, too slow kahit na naka-off na ang image, flash and Java loading. Kasi naman, artificial slowdown kasi ang ginagawa ng mga prepaid internet cards, fast @ 5.70 kbits/sec to silly at <3.60 kbits/sec. It’s ticking me off (and walang youtube, waaahhhh!)

And forget MP3, go AAC instead. Especially consider the HE-AAC variant (also called AAC+) which on my tests, sounds like 128kbit MP3 on only 48 Kbit HE-AAC. WMA claiming “CD quality” at 64 kbits is a joke pero ang HE-AAC is not kidding at the claim of CD quality at 64 kbits and even lower. Tested it at 32 kbits and still sounded fine, lower than that you sacrifice high frequency quality.
