Million dollar babies

Still remember the cute and candid video on YouTube titled “Charlie bit my finger“? It stars cuddly British boys—Harry and Charlie Davies-Carr. The younger Charlie harmlessly yet repetitively bites Harry’s finger, to which the latter cries, “Charleyyy bit meeeeeyyyy!” Harry grimaces. Charlie then bursts into a chuckle. Such a hit the 56-second British-accent-filled video was that four years after it was posted, they’ve become super rich. ( Read more… )

At the Hipsterranean Coast

Last Saturday night,  I innocuously  managed to insert my humdrum, mainstream self in the sea of Manila’s hipsters, both from true-blue and Muggle origins, at Meiday concert in Cubao X. Twas my first time in the place, and so I have to thank Chuicide for my unplanned quasi-wasted night. (She later called me a “hipster-virgin” as if I had kept a friggin’ hipster hymen.)

The UAAP Season 73 “Heroes” (Pic from the UAAP Season 73 Facebook like-page)

As if I didn’t just graduate, my stupidity was at its peak when I left my UAAP Season 73 opening ticket right when I was already on my way to Araneta.  It was just last year when I was entering through the South Gate FOR FREE.

Anyway, did I just see Ogie Alcasid and Gary Valenciano commencing the season with some grooving? Not to mention, Alcasid’s awkward, overkill, politically-monstrous Bangon Pilipinas had to constantly remind us that we are now under a new rule. Instantly, Charice’s bright yellow, debutante-cake-like inauguration dress drew itself in my mind. Apart from that, the best part of the show was– if you thought UP won, we were speared by DLSU at 80-62— nothing less than the AVP. With the theme “Heroism,” give way for your team…

Desperately Seeking Superhumans

The Mayans may be completely wrong about the world ending in 2012 for I think the universe is indeed crumbling at this very moment. With my ominous stepping on my KFC meal gravy TWICE last night (hence some moron leaping to the bathroom just to wash a foot), I could very well conclude that the end is near, the end is so near that we humans need to evolve into something more virile. Like, well,  the radioactive-waves-immune cockroaches. ( Read more… )
