img257/838/hulka3ff75iz1.jpg

first,, I conceptualized and gather a group of people to form this team to organize an event
then they stole it from me, got all the credits and using all my concept and dream.

and then they approached me to help them re-organized and reformat it. I accepted it and began working and researching and gathering surveys to make the event more organized and well promoted.

then suddenly I discovered this press release floating around and it seems that they already organized in their own with another group. and didn't informed me about it.

Im mad and angry!

they should tell me before so that I wont become a total idiot asking, interviewing and entertaining people's inquiriy about this event.

well fuck that ! and God damn you all!

i'm starting to hate all people because of this,
I like to help and get back on something that I started and since they approached me to re-do things right.

parang hinalo mo yung sinigang na sabaw sa dinugan, tapos ipapakain sa akin then tatawanan lang ako... putang ina nila! alam ko may agenda sila against me

grabe...bastusan na talaga ito.

because of this, i will act something that I should have done it before, kahit na masira na name ko.. bwisit sila...fucking USERS !

Iron Man movie Sneak Peak



thanks to MTV for giving us a short sneak peak of raw footages of the upcoming 2008 movie IRON MAN. Im having a little hype after seeing this and it drags me to search for some Dark Knight movie news and videos.

I'm wishing that this movie wont end up like The Hulk or Ghost Rider, I like all Marvel movies and for me a regular comic fan boy still likes to see this comic characters moving out of the pages of comics. Animation or Movie, it will still rocks!

Im not sure if they will follow the storyline like the Animated movie Iron Man, that animated movie has awesome action and the graphic of violence is heavy.

As I see some characters of Tony Stark under the arm of Robert Downey it brings some weirdness of it. He speak softly and not like more Christian Bale in Batman Begins, both are a millionaire, playbot and a superhero, but with same mission and different vision.

Im going to wait what will be the next update for the Iron man movie. I'll check whats the best of it that will make me wet my pants.

the Empire magazine cover feat. the Iron man image is a bunch of CGI images, Im not impressed to that, but I want to see is a real costume in action.

Life with Batibot

who would ever forget the educational kid tv show BATIBOT, every 20-30 yr. old knows them and Im sure you will get a big smile when you watch this youtube video.

and was surprise that Pocholo do the voice of Kiko Matsing hahhahaha.



do the evolution, life will be different without Batibot.
as the TV show said that many children are having a hard time learning the Filipino language because the Tv medium no longer shows Filipino spoken shows that will cater to kids, and the cable tv show is so big but has a small portion of Filipino language shows for kiddies.

year 2001, Batibot is gone, and now we are waiting for a new Batibot to come for our future younglings.

Can you still sing the Batibot song?

sa Batibot, sa Batibot...la la la la

The Transformation of Asian Comic Books — 1990s-2006

Im blogging this for now and its an interesting topic to learn that we should do something and not be labeled as nothing. And because of this, Im getting a new concept for a Comic event that will make sure tell these people that we have our own identity..
hmm..im not a comic artist or writer, but my support for Philippine Comics is big and even that I dont publish anything , Im still supportive and giving a big assistance on what matter that we can do in order to maintain what we wanted to happened in this so called industry.

yup, as John Becaro said - its a big wake up call.

// surprised and mind boggled after seeing this posted in a series of Deviant art journals

read more here Dr. John A. Lent - The Transformation of Asian Comic Books — 1990s-2006

here are some snippets from the article

In the Philippines, there is even a genre called Pinoy (Philippine) manga. New companies are doing Pinoy manga, such as Culture Crash and Questor, and, artists are following the Japanese style. Although some commentators feel manga and anime have brought Filipinos back to comics, others think they have removed the Philippines’ illustrious history of komiks production from public consciousness. Filipino cartoon historian Benjamin Ong recently wrote:

Then you have the generation that grew up on Japanese cartoons on local TV, that were (to no fault of their own) never exposed to the old komiks legends, and never given a strong sense of what it means to be a Filipino that their version of a Filipino character is a Japanese looking, and Japanese stylized drawing of a Japanese character with a Filipino name. Again, I cannot fault them but fault society for caring more for what is “cool,” and “in fashion” than what is truly Filipino.


and another one

The old Philippine komiks scene was starting to die out already in the 1970s, with the onslaught of martial law and the migration of artists to the U.S. By the 1990s, when young Filipino cartoonists could no longer find publication outlets, they started small companies to publish their own comics and formed groups of independent cartoonists such as Alamat Comics. Among new companies were Mango Comics and Nautilus Comics; other publishers, such as Adarna (children’s books) and Visual Print Publications, ventured into graphic novel publication. Mango is a family firm, headed by comics artist Hugo Yonzon III, whose father was a prominent Philippine cartoonist. The staff includes at least six individuals who carry the Yonzon name. A main activity of Mango in recent years is the reprinting of the Mars Ravelo classic Darna comic book series. In 2004, the company also started Mwahaha Magazine.

The komiks movement of the late 1990s was composed mostly of young creators without much business savvy. The dilemma is exacerbated by the fact that the creators, first weaned on Marvel and DC comics and later influenced by manga, have no sense of identity as Filipinos.


and another

Finally, though not new to Asia, adaptations and spin-offs of the comics have changed in their intensification. For a long time, comic books featured in movie screenplays in Japan, Hong Kong, Korea, India, China, the Philippines, and elsewhere; until recently, up to 50 percent of all Filipino films came out of the komiks. In the past five years, the Philippines have had a rebirth of komiks movies. Similarly, there have been many animation adaptations and merchandise lines of comics, particularly in Japan, but increasingly throughout East Asia.


and.

All over Asia, comics and cartoon professionalism is on the rise. A few more examples suffice to make the point: a planned Philippine Comics Art Museum in San Pablo City; a comics fair in Taipei that draws more than 100,000 fans annually; a well-frequented, Taipei government comics library of more than 60,000 books, established in 1998; other comics conventions in Malaysia (Comic Fiesta), Indonesia (Komikasia), and the Philippines (KOMIKON, established 2005); and the appearance of books and periodicals devoted to Asian cartooning.

Jonah Hex the movie



I just read this in another site while I browse some software. And Im excited to see this film, We know him from the comics and see him in action in Justice League Unlimited, now the live action is in the works. and the good thing is that our pinoy artists Tony De Zuniga co-created the comics for DC Comics.

Western Comic Book 'Hex' Comes to Big Screen

Warner Bros. Pictures is aiming to bring DC Comics' supernatural Western
comic book Jonah Hex to the big screen, with the writer/directors of the
thriller "Crank" on board to adapt, according to The Hollywood Reporter. Hex,
known for having the right side of his face disfigured and wearing a Confederate
army uniform, was a rough-and-tumble gunslinger and part-time bounty hunter
whose adventures always ended in blood.

Me at the frontpage of Simpsons MySpace



so thats the reason why Im getting a lot of messages and friend invites in my Myspace account. hahaaha, because my avatar is on its front page, the only Simpsonize Azrael avatar with a Decepticon Tshirt.

many people message me asking how did I Simpsonize myself, some of them have some problems in saving it and also making for themselves, and because that I can't answer all of it, I just posted a message in the bulletin telling them on how to Simpsonize theirselves in less than a minute.

maybe there are some web traffic happening during the Simpsonize factory hahahaha.

but if you are wondering that my Friendster, Myspace, Multiply, my blog and Deviantart are all Simpsonize, because, I like the cartoon Simpsons and it is a part of my childhood til now being a grown up. If I am right its in the middle of High school when I watch it and became a super fan, thats why my drawing style is like Matt Groening's Simpsons.

I remember too that there are Simpsons mini magazine given away free in some bookstores.

anyway. to Simpsonize your selves here are two sites to simpsonize your life.

go here http://www.simpsonsmovie.com/

and here http://www.simpsonizeme.com/

but I like the most is from the movie website. it is very easy to use and easy to save.

er...I used print screen in order to save mine and edited the background using photoshop :)


me Simpsons version using the movie site



and here's a 2nd version of me using the Burger king site via uploading your photo.



G.I. Joe 25th Anniversary Event





more info here

friend from a local toy group, TOY SOLDIER requested from me an event celebrating the 25th Anniversary of G.I. JOE. thats 1982-2007. The year the cartoon series and toys emerge during our youngling days, wow! Its like im going back to grade school I use paper and boxes as my GI JOE figures and later on Mr. Santa Clause gave me a big Cobra HISS tank during Christmas and then even before that one of my relatives in the states gave me my first GI JOE figure - Torch, then my mom bought me HARDBALL figure from SM toy store.


COBRA H.I.S.S. tank, i still have this at home and now the one missing is the HISS tank pilot

wow! I can still remember it all,
and also that my classmate in UST during grades chool gave his this GI JOE part of the vehicle that looks like a anti tank.

ok here goes the ball for a triple point shot for the 25th anniversary event, I just talked to one of the biggest toy store here in Manila and they are game for the concept, but we should ask first the toy distributor on when will they release the 25th anniversary GI JOE toys, and I heard that it is one cool collectible, with new molds and it is still on its same scale size.

After Transformers..comes now GI JOE....yo joe!! cobra la la la la la.!
