Rolling bedroom


yesterday we lack of sleep and we woke up early in the morning just to make it on time for Lace's school tour work in Laguna, and she brought me with her in the trip. all of us in the van are in dreamland and then we woke up after minutes and found out that we were already in Laguna. after the school tour, career orientation for San Lorenzo High School student, Lace did a great job marketing DLS-CSB, I help them carrying the equipment and also gag around with her co-employee.

after the tour, we rewarded our self a nice and quiet Mcdonalds lunch in Cavite.

and then we got new cutesy toys!!!

Honey in the Water



thats Lace as Story the narf and me as Cleveland Sheep, replacing Heep with Sheep, owner of the Merryland Cove.

hahaaha..that's us after celebrating our anniv. after eating and lying on the bed for 4 days.

thats are lil tribute for Lady in the Water, yesterday I got a chance to watch a vcd and its obvious that I dont have any interest to watch HBO and Cinemax coz yesterday was full of be movies airing and last midnight, I didnt have a clue that the time machine theme movie Im watching is a be movie., yup the characters are nuts when they went back to the past to stop the asassination of JFK.

last Sunday I saw the Expose special in Studio 23 and they featured this flying rods, I went nuts and began to question " what're those things? are they creatures from another planet?"

I started to have goosebumps when they began to investigate that flying rods, is that an insect? an animal? a flying ship ? or a flying rod from another dimension.

this stuff is a lot more interesting to know, and they have lots of video and photos capturing this rods and also they appear in local tv news and commercial. i think this things lived millions of years ago and this time we knew coz we began to discover them,


"Rods are small super fast flying creatures that seem to be invisible to the naked eye. They can be captured on video though. These strange worm like creatures fly through the air like fish swim through water. There is even evidence that Rods may have been known about by ancient peoples in Argentina" - from Apone's Paranormal Page

Last night it was funny that I scared Lace under the blanket, she cried and screamed hahhaha. at first I thought that she was joking, she got scared whenever she covers her self, then I began to peep my one eye under the sheet then if she see's it, she will got scared ahahahha.

she said that my eye looks like from the Ring and The Grudge.

Pinoy comic artists at the
San Diego Comic Convention 2006


I was surprised when I saw my inbox that comic artists Noel Tuazon emailed me this photo, at first I got the feeling that it was Alex Nino and others, when I opened it, and yes Alex Nino's pic is in there, and the funny email of Noel is "Hi Az, forget Jim Lee, here are the photos of the Legendary comic artists, excluding me!" At first I thought that it might be a virus, coz I haven't received any email from Noel ( this is the first time email from him) and personally we haven't met before, maybe he reads my blog.

I began to forward the pic to Gerry A. to pin point the others then I was surprised that Baras and De Zuniga is in there.

its cool to see them in one group pic during that international comic convention.
hope soon if they have time, they can visit us here in our local convention, hoping in ToyCon 2007.

again, thanks to Noel for the pics and Gerry for the info.

Up, Up and Away.

we clown around to this Superman Returns photo op booth in SM Bacoor and I know its the last of the mall tour series of the movie, last time was in Megamall,but the people manning the booth didn't allow us a free photo op, you have to purchase an Oreo wafer stick in order to have a photo op in the Daily Planet installation.


good thing is that they gave us a free Superman paper plane when we buy that Oreo wafer. and it was a great item for our Superman Returns Collection, Lace now decided to buy a plastic box container to stock all of her fast food toys. wow..she's turning into a toy collector.




There's a lady in the water


its a semi-excitement for us to watch the M Night's movie, The Lady in the Water.
what else do we expect from the movie, after having a bad day after seeing his last movie, The Village, at first I was thinking that it might be some sort of dream or a fantasy of a certain character that it brought those creatures in the real world. M Night's appearance is also annoying, hahahahaha,, but he's acting is not that hard for him, his role is a writer....and everyone in the COVE building revolves to each of them, The Narf always sits there and wait and never displayed any super powers or even its realm was not present to the movie.

It was a less CGI or fantasy theme movie. just think of a fairy tale and a bedtime story gone wrong. dont ever expect too much at the end of the movie.

hahhaha..I really love the people reaction before minutes of the end credits hahhahaha

but Bryce Howard Dallas as the Narf is one cool eye candy for guys

Spider-man 3, Venom pic news!

we haven't seen yet the Venom character in the movie, but here's the 1st teaser photo of the movie Spider-man 3. This is the closest yet pic before Venom's appearance. I guess the costume will turn out like Spidey with add on CGI effects and right now Im thinking of the animated series of Spider-man for Venom's voice.



image below shows that they are now auctioning off artworks of Alex Ross that was used in the opening intro of Spider-man 2, you can visit http://news.sonypictures.com/sb40/c3.php?SPT/9201159/9209833/H/N/http://www.sonypictures.com/auction this link for the auction page. and I know these artworks are one cool collectible.


Peter Cullen is now the voice of Optimus Prime for the TransFormers Live Action Movie



According to the official movie site and other TF website that Peter Cullen the original voice actor and dubber of the Original Animated series TransFormers - Optimus Prime, already confirmed last San Diego Comic Con tru a phone patch that he really now an official voice cast actor for the movie and is now back as the Autobot leader, Optimus Prime for the TransFormers live action movie for the 2007 release.
