This event is all for Kpop and party fans and with the success of their Kpop convention last year and the Kpop Night last February 2010, now comes another Kpop Night part 2 this July 17, 2010 at Fiamma bar in Jupiter st. Makati. As you know that Philippine Kpop Committee is the premiere Kpop event organizer for fans in Manila with an authentic kpop fandom and style.

I have seen many kpop fans and others are into singing and dancing, the fandom is very much different from jpop/jrock and the pop culture is different and unique. I'm very much hyped to this because I discovered Kpop last year of 2005 and didn't know that it will make big here in our country.

Ok! no more blabbing here are the details on how to attend this event.

Kpop Night 2 @ Fiamma
door opens at 9pm

My Inception-like dream or nightmare

I don't know how will I describe it, I know how the story rolls and discovered the ending of my story, it';s like a movie - Urotsukidoji meets Da Vinci Code meets Independence Day meets Who Framed Roger Rabbit meets Terminator Salvation meets Mara Clara. Its a scifi and fantasy dream and like a movie with an all star cast of all people I know, including bloggers and their role in my dream to blog about the event happening, it was chaos and the 2nd coming of Christ. It was creepy when there's a false or maybe the real messiah coming up like a Terminator from the future. It was funny in the end and I laugh silently as I transfer to another room and sleep like a baby. I don't know what it means, maybe because of too much movies, comics and geeky stuff I began to fall in the world of dreams.

And then in the end, why is it that Leonardo diCaprio is not included in my dream. I need a dream police now! (okay the Mara Clara thing is only a joke)

MOVIES: Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows part 1 trailer premieres in INCEPTION starting July 15

*I'm not sure if this is a different trailer, but they mentioned Part 1, so it means the trailer is full trailer for the part 1 of the movie Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows. We're going to find out after watching the trailer tomorrow at the movie premiere of Inception in IMAX. Oh wow! IMAX! I'm also excited to see movie trailer in theaters, the feel is more different than watching it online.

HP7A-TRL-1126
After its successful online launch, the first trailer of Warner Bros.’ “Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows” will now make its Philippine theatrical premiere as an added attraction to the sci-fi action-thriller “Inception” which opens across the Philippines on Thursday, July 15.
The seventh and final adventure in the Harry Potter film series, “Deathly Hallows” is a much-anticipated motion picture event to be told in two full-length parts. (more below)

Baby Ash's new baby gear

I was looking for a new toy or action figure for myself and I failed yesterday to buy one and have it as an award for my stressful day, but the Transformers War for Cybertron figures are sold out and I visit two toy stores already and found nothing. But I manage to buy this rocking bed for Baby Ashton, with a whopping price tag of P5k, a little pricey but it will be useful til Ash becomes a toddler.

COMICS: Death in the DC Universe

act894cvrinks-cmyk1
This is a surprise to all DCU and Sandman fans, coming this October 2010, we will be seeing Death appearing in Action Comics issue 894 and it will be her 1st appearance in the time continuum in the DC Universe, looks like the 75th anniversary of DCU is acting alive again, her first encounter will be the not so lucky Lex Luthor and his quest for power.

Story is written by Paul Cornell and ary by Pete Woods, in the image above is a teaser and also cover done by David Finch.

“Death appearing in Action Comics was my own mad idea, the extreme case of putting Luthor up against characters he’s not used to dealing with I’m very pleased that, after I ran the idea by him, Neil Gaiman approved me using Death in this issue. He’s been very supportive. It’s so. interesting to see her back in the DC Universe. Though Vertigo readers can rest assured that the character, and the way she’s used, will be true to the spirit of what has gone before.” - Paul Cornell said.

for me, this is a must read and have comics title. I'm reserving my bucks here, and I will enjoy this. yay comics!
