Teen Wolf tv series unleashed in AXN Beyond this July 17 at 9pm

Tyler Posey as Scott McCall in Teen Wolf (4)
For me, I will list the Teen Wolf as one of my favorite monster character, because he is in his teen, he is cool, he rocks, he got super human abilities, he turn into a werewolf and still get the girls of his dreams, but let me step that break and try to clear this smoke and open my eyes and accept that this new Teen Wolf that will air tomorrow night in AXN Beyond is not the same with the 1985 movie of the Teen Wolf that star with Michael J. Fox, that movie is my favorite and I remember that we watch that every day in our betamax, got addicted those 90’s years enjoying surround sound set up and a big tv inside our parent’s bedroom.

Real life Batmobile powered by turbines


I got this video from Patrick Tadeo in my FB network and I'm amazed that Casey Putsch of PutschRacing.com created his own replica of the Batmobile from the Batman 1989 movie, that is directed by Tim Burton, you'll see here in the video a real car powered by turbines, a part of a Boieng plane engine placed in the car as it's own engine run by diesel, kerosene or jet fuel. According to Casey's Youtube channel, hi Batmobile has a power to weight ratio comparable to a Dodge Viper with registration and licensed in the US.

Casey's Batmobile won an award in a car show, and the cool part here is that...it can pop up two machine guns... yes! that's right..it is heavily armed by machine guns like in the movies. I wonder if it converts into a speed boat.

visit his video blog at http://www.youtube.com/user/putsch1#g/u
to refresh your memory, watch the Batmobile in the movie version here

A funny Google Maps destination instruction

China to Taiwan - Google Maps_1310659803485
I found this info from my Google Plus network and its about the funny suggestions of Google Maps if you want to get the right step for you to go to another location. This tip came from Georg Kevin and I read the tips and try it in my Google Maps and read this out of this world suggestion, for example, you swim the Pacific ocean, going from China to Taiwan.

1: Open Google Maps (Get Directions)
2: Type China as your starting point.
3: Type Taiwan as your destination.
4: Read Step 48
5: When you stop laughing, +1 this and share to your circles.

then another guy suggested try China as your starting point and California as your destination and then Read Step 27.

ahhahahahahaa!

This blog is on top 36/100 popular blogs in the Philippines 2011

I think this is the final data for the 2011 and I read it in Pinoymoneytalk.com that the next collection of data and refresh for top 100 popular blogs will be on January 2012. Thanks to Pinoymoneytalk.com for having the time to gather data for us and rate us according to our ranks, my blog Azrael's Merryland experienced a big drop last June 2011 due to my non blogging activities back them, and I was so busy working for ToyCon 2011that month, I think I lost at around 200-300 readers per day and sometimes unique visits loss at sometimes at around 1,000 per week, that's a result of no new content and promotion of my blog in different social streams. Now I'm at top 36 and formerly top 30 last January 2011. I have more time to rebuild and create more cool content for my readers before the year ends, let's target top 20 next time.

I just learned that June 2011 is the weakest month for my blog, maybe next time I should get a time to create scheduled posts whenever I'll be gone or be busy on some projects and work.

30 Seconds to Mars: The Band, Their Mission



When one think about band members, the picture that would often come to mind are those grungy guys who sing loud songs and have girls screaming about them. Indeed, it seems that rock stars have been stereotyped over the years that it looks like there's nothing more to them. And at first look, this might be just the case with the guys from 30 Seconds from Mars.

When you first meet Jared Leto and the crew, your first impression would be that they would be your usual rockers. And it looks like their goofy antics wouldn't help the band's image either. But as it turns out, 30 Seconds To Mars is a perfect fit the the phrase “more than meets the eye” the longer you interact with them.

coverage: SMART x HTC x YOU event (launching of a Facebook phone)
