Little League Update: It's Japan vs. Hawaii for the Championship

The game will be aired live on ESPN and ABC on August 29 3:00 PM EST (August 30 3:00 AM here) at the Lamade Stadium, the home of Little League in Williamsport, PA. I'm happy when I learned that Japan made it to the finals. I always cheer for the Asian teams competing for Little League. Though I also cheer for Hawaii because some of the players were Filipino-Americans and they're really good.

Good luck to all the players and to those kids watching!

Black and White Week The L Word Edition- August 18, 2010

That's not a guy. If you remember the 2000 McG movie Charlie's Angels where Natalie (Cameron Diaz) had a girl fight with Vivian Wood, well that's Vivian Wood. I mean actress Kelly Lynch. Lynch played the role of butch Ivan in the showtime drama The L Word. Of course this photo showing her "in her Ivan outfit" outside the trailer was taken by Jennifer Beals and can be printed or purchased on the L Word Book.

Milla J. is Pro Gay!

This is a follow up on the Prop 8 overturn post I did hours ago. I decided to Milla Jovovich's thoughts on the the ruling. The following are her tweets from her official Twitter account.

Oh Milla. I so love you. I love you even more now. I think you're going up on my Top 3 list. :-)

California's Prop 8 Overturned. Wow.

The verdict has been made. Another victory for the LGBT community. Congratulations for the win! I hope this will send message to other US states, and other countries.

Read the full Prop 8 ruling HERE.

Black and White Week The L Word Edition- August 4, 2010

Actress Erin Daniels (Dana Fairbanks) in one of her "goofing around" moments caught on photo by Jennifer Beals. Daniels, know for her comical facial expressions and sarcastic sense of humor unveiled her "hidden talent" (as you can see :-D). Of course, more of this on The L Word Book in which you can see Jennifer's other photos.

Very Well Said, Milla J.!

I love Milla Jovovich's answer regarding her spiritual life. Several minutes ago, she just tweeted about it:

This is probably my favorite Jennifer Beals photo. Taken at Laurel's trailer, you can see Jen's reflection on the mirror while Laurel smiles in front of the camera. More of these photos on the L Word Book.

Update: is now officially closed. Sad but thanks for the years of sharing Jennifer's love and passion to the world wide web. We will be forever grateful to you.

Actress Laurel Holloman with her baby on the set of L-Word. Her character, Tina Kennard was also pregnant in the story which is a good thing for Laurel. This photo was taken by Jennifer Beals during her L-Word days. Ah, the joy of motherhood.

Go Hyun Jung: I want to live as a man in my next life

Kind of lezzie? I don't know. Maybe? ^_^
In latest interview in a Korean tv show, Seju Mishil actress Go Hyun Jung in one of the rarest events discussed her inner thoughts and revealed what she wants to be if she was born again. Her revelation:

- She told that if she was born again, she would never become an actress. She would rather live a normal life.
-And she added that it is also hard living as a woman and she wants to live as a man if she was born again.

Continue Reading this Entry..

I kinda question and wonder why she wants to be a man. Does this mean she's not happy being a woman and regret it? But when I read something about her personal life, I kinda understand her. That's her opinion.

Go Hyun Jung's turbulent marriage is well-known in Korea. 15 years ago, she fell in love and married Jeong Yong-jin, from a family of business tycoons (chaebol). Mr. Jeong is the Co-CEO of Korea's biggest retail store Shinsegae, and is the grandson of Lee Byung Chul, founder of Samsung. Sounds like Cinderella story, eh? But despite of this, her husband's family didn’t approve of her as a mere actress, not from a chaebol family and forced her to retire from acting. Her 8-year marriage with Mr. Jeong must have gone through hell (well definitely) ended with a nasty divorce, lost custody of her children to her powerful in-laws.

It’s rumoured that in 2005, two years after the divorce, Shinsegae Department Store had passed down a ruling that stated that none of its stores are allowed to display any Go Hyun Jung-related material. That meant all the products she endorsed- cosmetics, applicances, etc. And 7 years down the road, it looks like the ruling is still being enforced. And this is not a random case, as Go Hyun Jung’s endorsement of a certain refrigerator brand has also met with the same fate. Now that's harsh, really.

Up to this day, she still hasn't seen her kids ever since the divorce. Real sad. 7 years after, she came back to acting and gave us real entertainment as Seju Mishil in the Korean period drama Queen Seonduk. I'm just glad she divorced that guy (seriously). She always tell the media that "she has never been happier and free.. that although she thinks about her kids all the time.. she is still very happy".

Anyway, I wonder... if she would live as a man in her next life, would he be a rich one like her ex-husband? Joking. Some of her former co-stars call her "older brother" and describes her as a "caring and generous person".

And oh, I forgot. Go Hyun Jung is the face and the official endorser of LG Electronics, Samsung's rival company. Now I'm having doubts on whether to buy a Samsung phone or not. :-)

Let me try this 999-Peso cellphone.

I just bought myself a cellphone. No, a calculator. No, it's a calculator-looking cellphone. I bought one for my other number. It was cute, it really looks like a calculator. And it comes in different shades of colors. But the bestest best part is, it's cheap. Totally.

Truth is, texters love this Cherry Mobile P1 phone. When you're not that complicated type that wants his phone to be as high tech as possible, this phone is for you. It supports both text and call. It has basic keys which is very user friendly. Plus the fact that it is cheap, you don't have to worry about it in case some snatchers grab it from you (hehe). It can be also your gift to your friends, and you can buy as many as you want as a gift for your pamangkins too.

It also comes in different colors- Blue, Green, Yellow, Red, Black, and bought an Orange for me because Orange is cute. It's my favorite color!

Another cute photo from The L Word Book by Jennifer Beals. This is Henry, the cute Boston Terrier, and Erin Daniels' dog. Erin who plays Dana Fairbanks brings Henry along at the set. Well, Henry must be an adorable dog that Jennifer took a picture of him outside Erin's trailer. In the photo he(Henry) looks like he was hesitant to look at the camera. He is so cute! I love Henry.

Black and White Week- June 16, 2010

Actually, this is not a New Year photo. This was actually taken at a wedding and this is a part of the reception. Lovely isn't it? This is one of the reason why I love looking at black and white photos. If you think of it, the shots are simple but it tells a story.

Pride Month!

In celebration of LGBT Pride Month, I'll be wearing this shirt today at the office:

What do you think? I bought this at the mall. It really got my attention plus the design has some kind of a meaning to me. The zebra jumping through the rainbow, symbolizes a gay person coming out from the closet. Very beautiful.

So celebrate Pride Month! Baguio Pride will be on June 27, so I encourage you to come out and join the celebration!

The Urban Dictionary Name Game Part 2

Ex: My girlfriend was being a bitch, so I told her if she didn't stop it i would Chris Brown her ass.

2: Chris Brown- to hit a woman.
Ex: Baby, can you please be quiet before I Chris Brown you.

3: adj. Chris Brown'd, Chris Browning
To hit someone, most likely a female, in the face then flee the seen.
To mush someone, most likely a female, then flee the seen.
Ex: Guy 1: Can i crach at your place for a few days?
Guy 2: Why?
Guy 1: My girl called my mom a bitch so I Chris Brown'd her

Black and White Week- June 9, 2010

In celebration of Pride Month, I am posting this 1975 photo from the site Gilbert Musings. I don't know the name of the photographer, all that is stated is that it was taken on 1975 New York Pride parade. Recently, Pres. Obama declared June as pride month; before it was just pride week. And earlier this month, the US Embassy here in Manila celebrated Pride month for the first time. The new US Ambassador Harry Thomas said, “Discrimination is a waste of talent." I really hope to see a nationwide Pride parade here in the Philippines someday.

Why Do I Love This- The Book of Eli

Okay, so I'm really not good in giving reviews. So what I'm going to do is list down some of the reasons why I love a certain film or TV show that I have watched, I think that might be fun and easier 'cause you don't have to read long in depth observations. I'll just make mine simple.

For this post, I will list down my favorite things about this movie that I've recently watched, The Book Of Eli starring Denzel Washington. Here are my top 4 reasons why I am amazed and loved this film:

Continue Reading this Entry..

The first scene
I call this the "hunting scene". It was intense yet amazing.

Denzel Washington and Gary Oldman

Two of the most versatile actors in Hollywood stars in this movie

The visuals

I could say the visual effects of the movie is astounding, perfect for the post-apocalyptic theme.

The Ladies are Hot
Mila Kunis did a great job for her role as Solara

While Jennifer Beals, though a supporting role, nailed her character playing the blind Claudia.

If you still haven't watched the movie yet, please do. The fight scenes, story, plus the other four that I've mentioned all in this movie. Plus I recommend that it is a perfect weekend movie to watch with your family and friends.

Black and White Week- June 2, 2010

Let's start the month with a lovely photo from Maurese Polizio. When I first look at this photo, I imagined myself in that road. I felt like it leads me to somewhere. Heaven, I guess? Or maybe Hell, I don't know. All I can say is that this photo really draws attention- dark, scary, and powerful. Hmm, I wonder where that road leads to.

I desperately WANT this.

So many things happened and I lost track of this latest Ultraman movie which premiered last December 2009. A DVD and a Blu-Ray has been released, I so want to have one. Or I just want to watch the movie. So anyway, what's new with this new Ultraman flick?
Continue Reading this Entry..

Monster attack!

Well first, the setting of the story is outside planet Earth. For the first time, we have an Ultraman movie sent entirely on its home planet, M78. A battle between Ultraman and another Ultraman. Really? Yes, we have a new villain, a former warrior of the planet called Ultraman Belial (will get to know this guy soon) and a new Ultraman named Zero debuted on silver screen. And of course, the old schools are back- Mebius, Leo, Astra, Dyna, Seven, and many more that I cannot name them. Finally, the movie's soundtrack was made by Mike Verta, and American composer and visual effects guy who made a name with his works for Superman Returns ans Star Wars. Tsuburaya Productions also partnered with Warner Bros. to be the official distributor of the film. So much new in this movie so, I really want to watch it. I so love Ultraman, I consider myself an Ultra Geek!
Anyway, here are some pics from the movie premiere in Japan, courtesy of SciFi Japan. Enjoy!

Seriously, am I really the only one who likes Dakota Fanning? From the screaming little girl to a hot band vocalist, I am definitely sure she would grow up a good lady- I mean good like, no busting, no sex videos, drugs, whatsoever.

Future Hot Chick, maybe?

Anyway, this is a black and white photo of Dakota Fanning I got from her website. I was looking fora DF photo for quite some time now, because most of her photo shoots were kinda girlish, I should say. But this one is different. Maybe I'm just used to seeing Dakota in some wholesome, teeny bopper pics online. This one is just a preview of the other side of her. She's just 16 and there's still more to come for this talented young lady. Ah, isn't it funny to watch a child star growing and becoming an adult A-list actress? You could see her transformation by merely looking at her photos.

By the way, check Dakota Fanning on Eclipse.

It's Good to Write Again.

These past few weeks I've been cooking up something inside my brain. Something not new to me. Let's say an urge- An urge to write. My brain is like a boiling teapot, you know. When the water is boiling, you have to open the the pot to avoid the spilling, you know what I'm saying. That's how I describe my brain right now. I have so many ideas, teeming with ideas, inspiration that I have to let it out.
Continue Reading this Entry..

A few days ago, I started writing again. No, I won't tell what it's all about, but it is a short story. And I have a perfect plot and characters. It has been playing in my mind now for weeks and one day Mr. Story told me, "Hey, I think I have to go out of your hard shell not before it's late." And so I did. I opened the notepad and began typing, and as of today, I already finished 3 chapters (wait- this is not short story). But I guess I have to keep writing more, because every time I stop and go to rest, its like my fingers were protesting, wanted me to continue the story more because I still have so much ideas and plots and events for my work.

I have been suffering from the so-called writer's block for about a year now, and it's amazing that my imagination is doing good today. I said "Does mean I don't have writer's block any more? And is this the effect of not having writer's block, from zero idea to tons and tons of it?"
Well, I just hope this won't end so soon.

But anyway, I have my inspirations of course that really drive me to write. Inspirations and goals, I should say. Want to know? Here are my top 4 inspirations in no particular order:Well the main reason I really want to buy PSP is for me to watch movies. Lame reason? I'm a movie buff, and I travel. And sometimes traveling is boring so I need something where I could put my favorite movies to watch them wherever I am.

Of course, I can't get to buy that PSP if I don't work, so I have to get my butt up and keep working. Remember, it's just a week away before pay time and who knows? Maybe I could buy this gadget.

Who says I don't need love? Of course I do. And Armie is one of my inspirations. Hay, long distance relationship is kinda hard, but we believe we can keep it as long as we trust and love each other. Like that song from Eagles...

This lovely lesbian icon has been one of my motivations lately. In fact, I based one of my "short story" characters from her. Well everyone loves Lena Headey. Men, youngsters, and of course, lesbians. And Haven't I told you yet? She's number three ultimate girl crush list!

Black and White Week- May 18, 2010

I found this black and white photo by Lee Kindness, and it really captured my attention. The smokey effect of the shore and the buildings is gorgeous. Plus the reason that I love going to the beach, this photo for me is truly a winner.

Black and White Week- May 04, 2010

Crush of the Month Section is now running, so now it's time to create a new Section in which it will be out on a weekly basis. I love to take and look at some pictures, black and white pictures so for this new Section, I call it the Black and White Week! Yay! This section will showcase some of my favorite celeb and non-celeb photos. But since this will be the "pilot post", I decided to have a celebrity in black and white. And of course, it is no other than my latest obsession (haha), Lena Headey. Hurray for Sarah Connor- I mean Lena! Be back next week for more.

Remember Her?

You may recognize this villain as Farrah Cat from the hit sentai show Choudenshi Bioman. But in real life, she is better known as Yukari Oshima, or here in the Philippines, she became famous as
