Twilight Sh*t, Anger 2 and My MP3...

Believe it or not, I've gone through two rewrites of this post. I almost didn't finish if not for my persistence and some fresh things to insult and rant. Blame it on one person which I wouldn't want to mention as he's not worth my breath. It's my fault entirely, but I still would like to say "ulol bakla!!!" to him, if ever I see him again. We're all like that sometimes...
Anyway, these days I just can't help but be angry sometimes. Feels like I just want to ram an 8-inch steak knife at some people I hate, hated or about to hate. Or hating right now. I guess it comes with the job. Hey, Bruce Banner experienced that. But still, some times I've "Hulked" out I'm embarassed about, and I always try to incorporate calming methods, like breathing. Or fishing (maybe).

Lately, these past few days while travelling or going to malls to look at stuff made me want to "Hulk" out at some dorks, dweebs or effin' male-b*tches. Ever since that ultimate chick-flick-a-rama Twilight came out, I've seen many people of the male demographic reading the novel. Honestly, someone (no, really, I don't give a rat's ass about the story.) told me that the plot is paper-thin. Like Sweet-Valley-High thin. I guess some of these douchebags read the series as a conversation starter to hook up with chicks. (sample dialogue: "You've read New Moon? I've read New Moon!!! I think Edward's character (or whatever) is trailing at some points of the story, but that's just to build the Female character more, don't you think??...) Really, stories involving Vampires is so cliched... I prefer Blade, or at least a story involving Ninjas.

Also, I'm so hooked to my Mp3 (which I call SoundGarden... Chris Cornell tribute.) and I would love to buy an MP3 player with a bigger memory so I can place more songs there. My current music I'm listening is "King Without a Crown" by Matiyashu, " The Metal" by Tenacious D, "All Around me" by FlyLeaf and "Panahon" by Rivermaya. Music is a part of my life. Really.

Rants: The movie "YES Man" starring an old Jim Carrey and her leading lady who looks like Katy Perry is a good, if not somewhat-inspiring movie. The movie won't make you say YES to everything, but you're tempted to try... Watch it!!!! I can't wait for X-Men Origins:Wolverine to show. Feels like it would rejuvenate the franchise. I love the music video and beat of singer Lady Ga-Ga's "Poker Face"

Enthusiastic ' 09, Classic Games and MoyMoy Palaboy...

We celebrated New Year at the Office... again. It's kinda sad, but at least a lot of people in our offices bought some food. I'm stuffed to my eardrums that night. Still, I'm happy that I still have a job that makes me buy some things I need ( grocery) to things I don't need. ( novelty items ) I'm looking forward to this year, as I do always. As Brandon Boyd of Incubus once said, "whatever tomorrow brings/ i'll be there/ with open arm/ and open eyes/ Yeah...."

I've also recently purchased a cd full of compilation of classic games from their respective publishers (i.e. Midway, Sega, etc.) and downloaded them into my psp. ( I'm also thinking of downloading some scanned comic books as well) They're very entertaining. You see, I have a knack for playing classic games from Pitfall! on the Atari 2600 to Sonic the Hedgehog on the Sega Genesis. Makes you think how kids during that time consider a pixel as a Hero to how "revolutionary" those graphics are when compared to today's HD-quality graphics. Back then, there are no "real" endings, other than the usual glittering "CONGRATULATIONS" page. And the one thing that keeps them coming back to the game is beating someone's (or theirs) high score.

But the sad thing about these games sometimes is almost all of them are the same. They are just the usual platformer and shooter archetypes. The only variety are the characters and the storyline (well, kinda...) and man, these things can be hard. I've been playing this game made by Sega back in 1995 called Comix Zone, where a questionably-built comic book artist was sucked into his own comic book page and must escape into the pages. The action transpire in comic book panels. It's very interesting, if it wasn't for the damn difficulty. I keep dying in the second level. And there no continues on the original game. Once you die it's all over. You start all over again. Yikes. Well, I was a Sega Genesis baby, I started playing on the Genesis and not the usual Famicom. The game I play is Sonic the Hedgehog 3. We (my sister) always play with no save points. I'm glad that today's games have save points so you don't have to start all over again. Makes the industry merciful.

Rants: MoyMoy Palaboy really got into a lucky break, landing a gig at GMA7's Bubble Gang. They even have an endorsement shown on the LRT-1 . MoyMoy Palaboy are two dudes who lip-sync music with humorous results. They got famous in Youtube (no need to introduce this sh*t.) Almost all of the posts on that website has some idiots lip-syncing some tomfoolery music. It's just that these idiots got lucky. And I've watched their video. It's amusing (funny for a few minutes) enough, but it gets tired. But you know what, even if I have my gripes, I would still have my picture taken with those thumbleweeds. I guess that's how we're wired. We may hate someone, but we could still kiss them...
