Az' Take 1 on Nosferatu
i watched the german silent film Nosferatu in Megamall.
with live musical score by GARLIC



and here are my takes for the movie.

1.no english subtitles, the german emcee narrates to us the english
translation of the flashed german subs

2.telling to your wife that your going to the phantom land to get
some gold is not a good idea.

3.next time read the book that gives tips about dracula

4.the director uses the expose lighting effect to show to the
audiences the evening scene of the film, because shooting in a dark
night is a problem during the film shooting of 1922.

5. all of the set designs of the film are real. the castle, the town,
the river, mountains are all real...the castle is almost a 15th
century old that time.

6.dont blame the mosquito for the two fang bite in your neck.

6.Nosferatu - creepy!

7.Nosferatu - i think he has this magical powers, he can lift coffins
and stack them all in this horse and he let the cover of the coffin
crawls on top of the coffin, (he is inside in the coffin)

8.Nosferatu can drive the horse while he is inside the coffin.

9.If you knew that Nosferatu is a vampire, dont stay too long inside
the castle, make a way to get out !

10. Nosferatu is one real serial killer! killing all the crew and
captain of a ship

11.Nosferatu carries his own coffin - whoa! this is new!

12.dont leave your wife if you know that she is under Nosferatu's
power.

12.Nosferatu died after biting his last victim, and then he forgets
that it was already morning. - which it kills him instantly

13."the master! the master is dead"- shout by his assitant who was
jailed for bringing in death and pestilence to the town.

14.dont eat cheese popcorn inside the cinema, it will stain all your
fingers! and too much cheese is so salty.

15.i hope mcfarlane toys makes a Nosferatu action figure.

Anytime smoking cigarette
my head is in chaos !


: 3rd Deviant Art manila EB +good and BAD attendance : more than 40 deviants !


the event Meet up should start at 3pm that day, and i woke up late
and i went to Megamall Foodcourt at 4:30pm.

I was surprised to the number of Deviant Artists in the area.
Lico and Syeri already txted me that time and everyone is looking for
me.

im glad that they continued to meet up, and i dont have the idea how
did they get to see each other. maybe coz of the regular meet up
attendees, thanks to them!

we have already occupied more than 6 table of the food Court area.
and when i arrived they told me that the Megamall security guards are
already checking us out.

I told them that they should continue their activites and lets wait
for their actions.

and then after that..they approached us and told us that Gathering
large groups or grouping is not allowed in the area. we have to leave
the food court area coz we dont buy or eat anything.

so what we did is.that we told some of the members that we should buy
something and eat.

so DA members eat out and shared their foods to other members.and as
the food is finished. we continued our activities. Art sharing., meet
members, talks, drawing activity and filling up the attendance.

then 4 different faces of security guards approaches us and they told
us to leave the area again. we defend our right as customer, coz we
are paying customer and we have the right to stay...as we are not
such a group..but we treat ourselves as family.

they told us again that having a drawing activity in the mall is
strictly prohibited and gathering in groups are not allowed.

we told them, what if we are one family and we go out as a group? are
you still gonna kick us out of the venue, after that we demanded to
talk to the main head of the security of the mall, and we demand an
explanation why we are not allowed to draw or talk to each other
after our meals that we bought inside the mall.

but then..the guard didnt say a word after we demanded their head
director come out and talk to us.

then..some customer in the area are taking a peak of some of the art
and drawing activities and they saw the situatino and we told them
that the management are kicking us out...we said, where are our
rights ?

after that we still continued our activity....then i told the DA
people that i will leave them for now for I will attend a meeting on
the other side of the mall.

then i saw the DA manila marched down out of the food court and they
told me that they already kicked out by the security guards. as they
trooped down inside the Bowling alley which they will continue their
activity.

It was a hell of a day for us...and now Megamall hates us!!

where are our rights as customer ??


then..Iggy one of the DA contributed to the group and offered his
office conference hall in Discovery Suites , and next month we will
hold our DA meet up there and we will host our very own tutorials and
talks about art.

iggy is working in www.YEHEY.com , and for that.....the tutorials and
meet up will be viewable in WEBCAM.

this will be our next activity for next month!

hooray for Deviant ARt Manila !!!!!

Im gonna get you, im a Spaceboy
for now im still a prisoner here at home, and im all f'ck up and still hunger for some new gigs. and expecting a mission to be accomplished this week, but everything is turning upside down. But that bad side is having an exchange to the good side, which i got some new offers that i didnt expect to come. but still i want to prioritize the first gig that i already started.


Where's the band
Some people didnt know that my band Silme and the Sugardrop is already disbanded, i got some gig offers already when we are starting to form the band, and for now the band is no longer complete, i got this gig for Oct in Eastwood City and damn! we dont have the members to play, so i just decided not to play for that month, even that TJ Dimacali our hardcore fighter violinist will have his new electric violin.

But still TJ wants the gig, but my question is, are we prepared for the oct gig? i was prioritzing other indie bands like Late Isabel and Drip, coz they are my top bands who are my picked to play in Eastwood. I haven't yet explained to them the terms of the gig, coz its been organized by a Ateneo student Organization.

Right now im preparing my gears for this new band im forming, Neko-chan, my old online buyer od jrock stuff, she has decided to join with me in a try out band for Jmusic, also TJ got interested in jamming with us. we might start covering jrock music like the other jrockers here in the Philippines. Drummer is still our problem and a lead vocalist, well.i have work out on the drummer thing, for the moment, we might try the Electronica side for the drum beats and effects, while the lead vocals might be me or Neko-chan. Maybe she might have a great voice. coz i like girls who sings and plays the guitar.

and for that maybe we need a new name for this band...
Our Silme and the Sugardrops lead vocals had gone AWOL and we dont have much contact to him, and we dont know if he's still interested in joining with us.

well for the music we might start covers of Luna Sea, which is my most favorite. and im eyeing for next months Kinjo music event which will be Utada Hikaru Day, a marked day for our 1st live act.

Pieces of me
...i dont know why am i addicted to Ashlee Simpson's song Pieces of me. coz its MTV and MYX's fault! and now i have downloaded an mp3 of her song. ehhehehe..

The Land of no post
Here I am again, back to my blogging habits, the time im not busy, the time im not lonely, the time im not alone, but wants to be alone.

Neci, sent me a message and wants to meet me, she's from the states, and she's here for a vacation. I met her online in friendster, and sometimes we have this regular night chat sessions and i also invited her last time in my online bday party. its hard to stay contact with her, coz i dont where i can call her, even that she's near here in my location. i guess we wont be able to meet anyway.

Game Blood
its great that my game blood is back, having my game addiction is back online and now i cant stop it. Now been playing again all these ROM games i got from a friend called the Cyberbiologist, he's my PC doctor, been playing all kinds of ROM games, like CAstlevania series, Megaman series, and now im trying to finish Super Metroid,

Star Wars Galactic Battlegrounds is one oy favorite now, ive choose to be the Empire and then in the game , i really love to kill and annihilate all Rebel Forces. its cool lead Darth Vader in every game. Destroy all rebel scums that inhabited the planet Yavvin after the destruction of the Death Star. The Campainge game play has story stages that have missions orders and that mission must be followed and accomplished in order the win in the game.

I Played this Magic:The Gathering , Starter PC game, and now i get the idea of how these card games play.its cool to battle with other wizards, and they use these creatures just to block their selves in any spells and magic attacks, by that creature attack and spells attack you must use to sell you land property in order to active each attack, depends on the power of your creature and spell.

No one sleeps in Tokyo
i just got a wonderful sleep session yesterday, and i think its one of my best resting days, after a full straight of no nonsense work, and a great activity last saturday. Right now i just got news that i was linked to this girl that i didnt know, got the info from a member of the Kinjo Japanese music community, and hell yeah..i didnt know that im too popular, as they know my name, but its their first time to meet me in flesh.

ahhahaha..i like these kids! they are funny.

Az in the Archers ground

Il be conducting a one shot lecture about pop culture in De La Salle University, and im so excited that im back and students are interested to let me do the lecture for them,. this time its good that the subject is in Filipino class.

This Friday at 2pm, me and RG Guanzon of We Are Anime will team up in a one shot lecture, and damn! im gonna be the first one to talk. Maybe after the lecture. il upload a transcribe version of my lecture, so that it might help all those thesis makers and might be a good source for their projects.

and maybe next week or next next week, me and the bunch of mutants of Artists' Den will be in UST and on November, we might do another lecture in Assumption Antipolo, and it will be my 2nd visit after 5 years.

invades the Dir en Grey Day

Its my first visit to the 2nd event of Kinjo: Philippine Japanese Community, its an group for all jmusic lovers, for this month they finished their event called Dir en Grey Day, its an event and shrine for Dir en Grey and to their rocker fans. That day i was expecting of lots of Visual Kei cosplayers,, and when i entered the gates,, i just saw some people who just don in their Visual Kei costumes,

Sakura Beat first jam for the acoustic performance doing their Larc en Ciel covers, while the Disciples of Ninth made a stuning X Japan acoustic no vocal acts, and the popular 7Thursday, cheered by their groupies and fans for their ultimo Larc en Ciel covers.

well..for my nifty i hate to see in that event, is that male posers are the worst ever. you see, posing as jrocker and just not to mind their attitude, i mean, these kids must learn their lessons, so that time i just let them be, but when the time comes.il give them a taste of my wrath, ehehe,.but its nice to see them pay the P50 entrance...its a lot of help though.

fuck ! this is the first time i used the word "though"
damn me! i hate myself though hahahaha!
though ! tho! tho ! thong ! opps.!!!!

A swell in the sun
im still in a 50% not so good condition, as my life nearly fades into the bottom of eternal stench, got lots of ideas coming up, and my brain is already overloaded by upcoming events, girl situation, girl i like, girl i hate, girl i want to meet, sked is getting tighter than ever.

I think my life is running again, but it lacks of fuel to charge to a point of safe return up to be the point of no return. that is very creepy.


Alien Impales Predator


At last i have watched the movie! and its a good one! its a must see movie to all alien-predator fans. all of my theories are correct for the story of the movie..and i believe that maybe next time they might follow the story arc like in Aliens Vs. Predator:WAR comics from dark horse comics.

Alien 5, - I got news that Sigourney Weaver just signed in to do the Final Alien movie as Ripley again - Alien 5, and Ridley Scott story will follow to the main origin of the Alien, that is going back to the main land of Alien 1. which is that revealed that the alien is a main weapon that being used by that found giant space jockey fossil in part 1.and story will be the crash landing to Earth of a space pod filled with aliens, that origins came from the planet of the Alien.

Predator 3 - they still have to choose 3 different script. and one last story involves arnold swarzenegger and danny glover, both survivors of Predators attack of their movies.Dutch from Predator and Harrigan from Predator 2 and they are captured and brought back to the Predator homeworld because they were the only two people to have ever killed a Predator.

the mutants of Artists' Den Ariel, Ryan, Lyndon, and me.
thanks to Manila Bulletin for the free ticket =)

Give me the word! FAUST

FAUST
its a german folk movie that has a story of a battle between God and Satan. - its a pretty good movie i watched after Metropolis, another Goethe German silent film feature that gives a nice blend of live music by Tots Tolentino and his band. nice moves on those musical live in the silent film. Special effects that was used in Faust are lot more impressive than the special effects thy used in our local movies during the 1990's. since the movie is a 1926 film,

and the German film organizer really did well on this festival, giving us pinoy a taste on how German films were presented during 1920's, its a pure silent film that was played by live musicians or orchestra, the system has stopped after 1940's, when they got a chance to mix the picture and sound into one movie.

The End is near for all

a special tribute to Aliens Vs. Predator

Its a bad day for me this Friday 13th, for me that day is a lucky day, even that i walk from home up to Megamall and experience a heavy rain on my way, but that never stops me in my journey. I was stranded for 40 min. under the waiting shed in the area of pasig near the Flood way bridge, and there i got no money that time for the jeep ride, so I decided to walk going to Mandaluyong.

its a silly thing to do, but i cant do the spider-man stunt that i was doing back in highschool, were i jump at the back of a moving pickup Van, just to get a free ride going to Tayuman up to Blumentritt.

guess that i must have a new day job now! eeheehhehe....upcoming project for the animation gig will be on the next 3 months.so this time i can no longer wait. I have to survive in this terrible world!

The end is here
Its time for Aliens Vs. Predator movie ! damn..i've been waiting for this movie since Highschool. during those comic-movie and video games type, I really love the story arc of these two creatures clashing together. For me its dream come true.


before the movie and comics they have this coin-op arcade game,Aliens Vs. Predator, its a free scrolling game that you'll choose a marine, android or 2 predator warriors, in a mission to defeat all aliens inhabitants that infested the area, its a good story -4 player game, and this f'kin game gives the bright idea for a new revolutionize movie.


then they brought the two creatures in a Dark Horse comic series, Aliens Vs. Predator becomes a hit comic series for all fans, giving them a wide imaginative battle between Bad vs. Bad for the trophy - we humans. Lots of series have given and single to multi series was appreaciated by all fans, one of my favorite story arc was - Aliens Vs. Predator WAR, its a battle royale between three races, aliens,predator,humans,...plus a woman dressed up and trained as a Predator. cool eh ?


after the comic series, a movie was debated and then fans pitch their own ideas for the movie, but...when i watched Aliens:Ressurection, also another dream come true for me, and the ressurection of Ripley, will fill all the missing story for a AVP movie. i think....but when the end of the A;R movie, when the ship of Ripley plus the survivors crashed their ship on planet Earth, i was thinking what if theres an alien egg hatched and the infestation on Earth started.???...then Predators came to help humans to annihilate the pest aliens??? - another 20 bucks idea from me.-










Then...after those ideas...Sierra games.-i think im right.- made these first shooting games also from the same title, and me as a big fan, really dig this horror-suspense action shooting game. for a taste of real fun, i choose to be a marine. i spend my my whole day everyday playing this game. and then i cant believe that i finished the AVP game.
Also the first apearrance of a hybrid Aliens-Predator and Predator-Aliens, and Mechanoid-Predator. --which im expecting what will i see in the movie. this first person shooting game comes out with a sequel. which i havent played it ..and i guess its a lot more difficult.


Dream come true for me......tonight me and the Artists' Den Lyndon Gregorio, Ariel Atienza, Ryan Orosco, plus Jon Zamar will be watching with 5 people for the advance screening of the movie for FREE, from Manila Bulletin, plus we will be appearing in the newspaper as the last pic of the life of all humans hehehhehh....i think il bring a banner that says -GO ALIENS! GO! GO!-

Next movie i want to see
Robocop VS. Terminator
if they make this.....il be a very good boy for life.
witht the same treatment....- comicbook-game- and i hope a- movie


In the machine-dominated future of 2029, a human rebel gains access to the Skynet computer's Time Displacement Equipment and sends herself into the past on a desperate mission to kill officer Alex Murphy, a.k.a. RoboCop. But Skynet is onto her plan and dispatches a trio of Terminators to the past as well. The Terminators' mission: protect RoboCop at all costs.

Lazzy Legs ver.2
im very lazy today in updating my website. also..im very busy for i have attended lots of activities for these past weeks, and it was a hell of fun for me and to everyone.
Wake the Acid Android


Doom 3
Chainsaw, Rifle, Shotguns, Demons, Zombies, Hell on Earth..these are some words that can describe the game Doom. For every game play theres this eerie feeling when you play this game,. Back in Doom 1 and 2, this new game really kicks all first person shooter, for me this is the grand daddy of all shooter games.

Graphics is great, if your PC is equipped with the latest Graphic Proccesing Unit like those GEforce videocards. man...sure you'll love your Pc when you have these cards.

When you play Doom 3, is just like transporting your self inside the ALIEN movie atmosphere, the creatures and demons are like H.R. Giger designs, (he made those Alien designs). Now Doom 3 has a great story line, juicy cut scenes....and smooth graphics animation
Only problem is, that...if you are pregnant or have an heart ailment, this game will kill you an instant. Like for my experience..i got almost the first 15 minutes play time, but suddenly i quit for the horror and thrill of the game.

Story is ..that..you are the main dude from Doom 1 and Doom 2, and of course,.you know the whole story for that.
You are assigned as a soldier in Mars, suddenly a scientist opens the portal of Hell, and then Hell comes down to Mars.

Your mission is to survive and finish all the missions. Equipped by a PDA, all info will be stored there, and dont forget your baby ......your loving weapon..and too...THE FLASH LIGHT...yes...the flash light is the most important tool here.. if you dont have one...You wont survive the whole game......the GAme is so dark.

one exciting about is that you can't use your gun while holding the flashlight. so you have to disable first the flash light before you shoot those demons. Lots of secret passages that leads to treasures of medic kits, ammo, and armor pack.

Doom 3 will blast all shooter games, better grab it and play it.. before Hell on Earth occurs.
