Pulot missing again! or Catnapped again!!



My cat is missing!!! and its impossible for him to go out of the house coz he's only a 5 month kitten! huhhuhu. Pulot is missing since last night, when we arrived home last night, I felt that Pulot doesnt appear infront of us when we enter the gate. and then I was informed by the people here that Pulot is nowhere. and his companion, female cat, named Pute, is here crying and looking for Pulot. damn!!!! I guess Pulot is a victim of Catnappers.

last January, Pulot has been catnapped by kids who are walking infront of the house.

I don't know what to do, I just hope that Pulot is here when I arrived home.

badtrip! me, Ariel and Mark are talking about this catshow on April 1. and thinking of joining there. awwwww

Rudy Florese's "ORAS MO NA !" comics is now uploaded



read the republished of Oras mo na!online at http://gerry.alanguilan.com/archives/50

I'm a big fan of comics not only the comics we know that Superman and Spider-man appear on it, but also a comics that have our own blood. Yes! Im talking about our local comics or komiks with a "K"

Gerry Alaguilan of Komikero.com has started a project from bringing a virtual museum of our local artist and their creations, then making his own living room into a age of wonder of Philippine Komiks art and now! he just restored an old classic to a new medium tool for this generation. And I'm glad that this is new in the komiks scene. And i had a chance to relive the old days of my youngling years reading comics in a nearby barber shop in Sampalok, ,Quezon Province.

12:30am when I surf the net and check out komikero.com if the pages are already up there, then i waited refreshing the site and while I wait, I went to the Philippine Komiks Message Board just to check out some updates. Im not yet sleepy and Im excited to read this comics titled "Oras mo na!" by Rudy Florese.

then 1:20am I saw Gerry's blog and I saw its new update. Its already there!!!
just log on to http://gerry.alanguilan.com/archives/50 to read the series.

Deon Arsenal is one kick ass character! the intro is great and and every minute i spent reading it panel by panel is great! and also I read the Filipino texts slowly, in order to understand more of it. I may be poor sometimes in reading Filipino text , sometimes I miss read, so I read it slowly and understand it. wow! my Tagalog reading habit is here again hahahaa.. oh well, in every komiks series....you cant avoid being "bitin!" and say " grabe., i'll wait again for next week for the next chapter."

The re-coloring is great, and you'll never notice that it came from a scan comics. perfectly digitized.
we must call it THE SPECIAL EDITION er minus the THX hahaha. scrolling the pages down in reading is very
comfortable than reading it using a cursor browsing to the right. I'm glad that it is in jpeg and not in PDF, coz sometimes people get confused about the PDF file. the text are completely neat, too! Im using a 800x600 screen resolution in my laptop and it stays perfect !!! the images and text!! perfect !!!!

wow! i'm excited again for the coming episode pages. of Oras mo na!

as the last text says "This novel is action and drama packed"

Rudy Florese's ORAS MO NA! To be Serialized Online




In the continuing effort to preserve and promote the works of Filipino
komiks creators, Komikero.com will begin the online serialization of
ORAS MO NA! written and illustrated by Rudy Florese, originally
serialized and published in Pioneer Komiks in 1984-1985.

The online serialization will follow the pattern of the original, with
4 pages uploaded weekly on Thursdays, and will continue until the story
finishes 33 weeks later.

ORAS MO NA! Begins on Thursday, March 29, 2007 at
http://www.komikero.com

Compared to many Filipino komiks serials of the 70’s and 80’s which had
hundreds of parts (each part is 4 pages), Oras Mo Na is relatively
short at 33 parts. Rudy preferred writing stories that were short, to
the point, and have definite endings. Ironically, Rudy himself was the
artist on probably the longest Filipino komiks serial in history, “…at
sumanib ang Langis Sa Tubig!“, written by Marty Gee Aragon, which, at
last publication, was running more than 1000 parts. The serial was so
long that it was never finished because of the closure of the komiks
publishing division of G. Miranda and Sons. The writer reportedly still
has a large stack of scripts yet to be illustrated at the time.

Rudy has also worked in American comics for several years, illustrating
the adventures of Tarzan and Korak, Son Of Tarzan, as well as several
stories for DC's Mystery/Horror comics line.

Rudy Florese passed away on April 4, 2003.

-----

// Im not familiar to Mr.Rudy Florese's work, and Im not that so familiar with the whole Filipino Komiks series except that I read some of it during my youngling years, Its good that Gerry did a great contribution in restoring the old classic to be shared in public via internet. Im just not sure if it is in Filipino language or bi-lingual. hmmm.. lets start the countdown and wait til Thursday.

post this also to your blog, to spread the good news that the Filipino Komiks series will live again

thanks to Mr. Alanguilan for the effort of making this possible

Banshee in cavite.

damn...are banshee real?
im not so sure about it, but i just googled it out and saw an article in wikipedia that banshee are part of this irish theme. i know theres a guy who scared us years ago about banshees, ya know when people with 3rd sense group around and we create this so called giant radar which we pick up signals from the netherworld. hmmm

well, me the other night, just experienced this weird encounter..or i shall say that i heard this some kind of female screaming some kind of a shriek. that i think cames from above and floats around the village.
were i got disturbed when all the house dogs in the village went crazy and wild due to the noise.
and im double sure that it is not an airplane. coz i know how plane sounds like.

hmm...im not sure about that., but i;l just listen to it and never look at it.
but believe me, i know what i heard and im blogging it right now.

hmmm..another case for my Azrael's other world

In Ireland, the Banshee, who is supposed to be a fairy woman (bean, woman; sidhe, fairy) is said to wail and cry when members of certain families are about to die. It has never been established, however, why this ghostly creature follows some families.

Comics and Events Organizing 101

// im reposting this for an entry for this day, this was used in one of our lecture in DLSU 3 years ago i think. Soon I'll be posting Comic Shop 101, I just talked couple of days ago people from outside Philippines who like to established their own comic shops in their area. I've started in a small comic business before I got here and I guess Its time to share to the public my SECRETS hehheh. There are lots of people who wants me to put up a store again, but as I say it the last time I closed a small business. It needs a super big attention. and also man power.

well in this article it materializes into a big convention - KOMIKON and others.

Comics Events and Conventions
by: Azrael Deasis Coladilla and Lace Llanora


Introduction
Events and Convention for comics are the amusement, entertainment and fairground for the comic fans, comic creators, and merchandisers. It’s a big promotional gathering and it’s a yearly and seasonal activity for the comic pop culture.


Functions of Events and Conventions

Promotion


The importance of having these events and conventions is for all comic fans, creators and publishers to gather in one place and promote each other’s comic related products and services.

Interaction

The interaction between comic readers and creators is established.


Market Research

It’s a big opportunity for the comic publishers to know more about their target market, environment, competitors and trends.

This will help them with product development. Their next product releases just like any product in the market will be designed based on the current market situation.

In short, events and conventions serve as a market place for comic artists, publishers and enthusiasts.


Elements of a successful comic event

1. The event should be fan friendly

2. It should promote interaction
a. Comic fan - comic creator
b. Fan to fan
c. Comic creator-creator relationship

3. Art appreciation


Organizing 101

1.organize a small-scale event
2.organize a big scale event

a. Make a plan for your event
b. Prepare list of programs
c. List of contacts
d. Guests
e. Activities
f. Venue
g. Budget
h. Sponsors
i. Making business
j. Public Relation
k. Promote the event

Plan the event
1.set a date
2.time and schedule
3.timetable of organizing


Programs: set of activities, itinerary for the event
-It should feed the interests of all the stakeholders:

1. The corporate persons
2. The target market (readers, fans)
3. The publishers
4. The advertisers/sponsors


Venue
1.accessible
2.affordable
3.fit for the target market

Budget
1.always try to plan a "no budget event"
2.divide the budget for venue, production, talent fee, and prizes

Getting sponsors

Sponsors reduce the cost of organizing an event. Sponsors are willing to give a certain amount of money or anything of value in exchange for their company’s exposure, promotion and participation in the event.

-Submit a good proposal (mostly for budget)
-Should be SMART
S- simple, specific
M-measurable
A-attainable
R-reasonable
T-time bound

-Present a working idea
-Show your back track

Possible Activities
1.Comic book launchings
2.Comic creators panel discussions
3.autograph signings
4.Contests
5.Exhibits

Turning everything into a business
-Events organizing like any other forms of marketing activities are for profit.

1. Entrance fee
-Get profit from volume and not from high mark ups if possible
-Pricing depends on the lifestyle, age and income of the target audience

2. Sponsorships
3. Entry fees for other contest
4. Divestitute: sell your big idea to other events organizers or publishers if you feel you lack the time and resources to do the job.


Public Relation
In events organizing, you need to have good public relation skills, because it is easier to move in the event organizing field if you know the key players, and if you have connections, organizing will be an easier task

Promoting the event
the best way to promote and advertise your event is through word of mouth, it serves as a direct marketing tool and the credibility level is high

If you have a budget, you can use the "tri-media", TV, print and radio; however, there is another form of media that should be exploited, the Internet.

The Internet is a good medium to advertise products, services and in our case, events. It is the least costly advertising tool that we can utilize.

Whichever medium you choose, the layout and content must always be fit to the target audience's demographics and psychographics

The 6th Philippine, Toys, Hobbies and Collectibles Convention 2007
production note 6


At last.. another update to all of you, been busy lately for the website of GHG and the website restoration is going good, thats why I went back for ToyCon to fix once and for all my other duties for this.

Formulating contest rules are one of my favorite job, this requires heavy conceptualization of guidelines for the contest. The contest rules should be clear and easy to understand. You must be familiar to its nature and also
the outcome of the contest. Sometimes if ever I need to top my ideas, all I do is search for other contest and then compare my rules to them, Coz Im avoiding rules to be the same to other events and that is a very serious issue.
And it happened to our contest rules copied for an event not affiliated to us - not for the first time it happened.
but its okay, I've already forgive them and told them not to use or clone our contest materials with out our permission.

whew!
The contest rules and line up are here already, and also posted in the http://toycon.blogspot.com
and some of the rules posted are not yet final. but people can use those rules if they want to start right away.
minor revisions will be included that relates to submission and other mechanics.

here are the contest line up for ToyCon 2007

Customized Action Figure Contest

Original Character Design Contest

Fan Film Contest

ToyCon Live Action Figure COSPLAY Contest

TransFormers Speed up Contest

Video Game Tournament

Inter School Comic Creation Contest

TransFormers FAN ART Contest

Inter School Animation short film contest

my patient for 3 days



I became a cat nurse days ago when Lace's aunt found this 2 week old kitten in the street, the kitten was slaughtered by a unknown male cat here in our area, we know that the mother and its infant are secured living at the back of the pond in the garden. Then we saw that there are bite marks on the neck, and its very weak and unable to stand up, we gave first aid and then feed the kitten hoping to recover.

but after 3 days, it died.

I later found out when I txted the people here in the house, asking if it is alive, I was about to buy some milk for house pets and a baby bottle. But I felt sad when I heard the news.

but its okay.

there are 4 more kittens living on the terace with their mom hahahahah.
but Im hoping that they will move out of that area when they can go out of their own.

sometimes i feel that cats are dumb and smart.



like our favorite house kitten here. now growing into a big cat.
and also he's very popular here and the neighbors walk by infront always just to catch a glimpse of Pulot.

Pulot is funny sometimes. Last night I saw his stranded on top of the garden roof.
I was surprised that he tried to catch that 'butiki' or lizard on the high wall hahahaha.
I rescued him from the top. and now he plays with the fish in the aquarium hahahah

HERO TV's BECK Mongolian Chop Squad Concert Mall Tour




lets have a break and read some messages from our partners in the industry
happy anniversary to Hero TV's G-cube

Hero TV ‘vocalizes’ OPM lead artists

With the success of the Voltes V Evolution in using an all-star cast of “voicers”, anime fanatics are now up for an even bigger breakthrough as Hero TV once again taps celebrity dubbers, but this time, vocalists from popular OPM bands to voice characters in the newest musical anime series, Beck: Mongolian Chop Squad.

Premiering this April 14 on Hero TV, Beck is certain to be an anime hit as it features the voices of OPM band icons: Rivermaya’s Rico Blanco, Sandwich’s Raymund Marasigan, The Dawn’s Jet Pangan, Rocksteddy’s Teddy Corpus, Six Cycle Mind’s Ney Dimaculangan, and Sponge Cola’s Yael Yuzon. Beck’s lead character will be voiced by the Little Big Star Big Division Champion and emerging teen heartthrob Sam Concepcion. Joining him to give voice to his character’s love interest in the anime series is a budding teen celebrity Stephanie Cuevas from the ongoing musical stage play High School Musical.


Hero TV’s belief in Beck – and the clever gimmick of using rockstar celebrity dubbers – is backed up by the fact that Beck is a monster hit in Japan. It follows the story of a 14-year old boy who lives a boring and uninteresting life, until that day when he saves a strange dog. From this point on the boy gets involved in the rock band of a wild and unpredictable guitarist, and he soon finds himself with a new life as a member of this band that is yet to hit the music scene.

Aside from its appealing story and production twists (use of celebrity dubbers), Beck will definitely be remembered through its catchy theme song “Hit In The USA” as popularized by Beat Crusaders. You can also catch the Beck experience near you through several mall shows that will be conducted in March and April.

Watch Beck on Hero TV, the no. 1 anime channel among kids, teens and young adults that ranks in the top 10 most watched cable channels. Get updates constantly by tuning in to Hero TV Channel 44 in Metro Manila and in over 250 cable systems nationwide.


Beck

Airing Date:

April 14 – July 14, 2007, Saturdays & Sundays[11am with a replay in the evening(7:30pm) airing].

The Characters of BECK: Mongolian Chop Squad

  • Yukio (Koyuki) Tanaka: VOICED BY LITTLE BIG STAR FIRST BIG EDITION WINNER SAM CONCEPCION

The main character, a 14 year old talented but very reserved boy. The series follows his rapid development from an average person to an outstanding guitarist. Being extremely polite, he cannot help but let others push him around, a possible metaphoric stereotype on the very proper and manner conscious Japanese society. The last member of BECK, he is the second guitarist and vocalist. Yukio has a very beautiful voice that is mostly used for Beck’s slower songs. He owns a Fender Telecaster

  • Ryusuke (Ray) Minami: VOICED BY RIVERMAYA’S RICO BLANCO

A Japanese character with a long history in America. He speaks fluent English, and frequently uses both Japanese and English in his conversation. He lives alone in a shack by the fishing pond. His skills and taste in music inspire Koyuki to take up the guitar. His talent in playing the guitar and writing songs is unparalled. The band’s creator, Ryusuke is BECK’s lead guitarist and band leader. A once younger Ryusuke and Eddie Lee stole the Lucille (a very famous guitar named after a woman) from the boot of Syke’s vehicle. This begins a deeper backstory of Ryusuke’s character.

  • Saitou Ken’ichi: VOICED BY THE DAWN’S JET PANGAN

Koyuki’s guitar and swimming teacher. Saitou once swam in the Olympics but was unable to achieve his dream of winning so he turned his life to teaching others how to swim better. Saitou is loud and demanding in public, and especially strict when it comes to swimming. But when he is out of the water, he is much more open, even turning Koyuki for advice on his attractions to Momo. Saitou is a fan of British rock and his favorite band in the anime is the fictional Rocket Boys while in the manga, it’s the Beatles.

  • Taira Yoshiyuki: VOICED BY SANDWICH’S RAYMUND MARASIGAN

The first recruited member of BECK, Taira is the bassist, and the most talented band member next to Ryusuke. Little is known about him, and his attitude may sometimes come off as uncaring. He has been seen working as a traffic officer.

  • Chiba Tsunemi: VOICED BY ROCKSTEDDY’S TEDDY CORPUZ

Main vocalist for BECK, he is the key member that Ryusuke needed to bring Taira into the band. Compared to Koyuki, his voice is more punk- and rock-oriented, like the majority of the band’s songs. He also named the band “BECK,” inspired by Ryusuke’s dog.


  • Yuji Sakurai: VOICED BY SPONGECOLA’S YAEL YUZON

The fourth member to join, he was also Koyuki’s first good friend, sticking with him even when the school bully and his gang beat him up for breaking the silent treatment on Koyuki. He is the drummer, inspired by his brother and replaces the original drummer of BECK who followed Ryusuke from his original band, Serial Mama.

  • Eiji: VOICED BY 6 CYCLE MIND’S NEY DIMACULANGAN

Originally in Ryusuke’s first band Serial Mama, he formed a new Belle Ame (Beck’s main rival) which became popular not through their talent but the band members’ looks. Getting all the big breaks, Belle Ame seemed destined for greatness, until Beck overtook them on their drive to fame.

  • Maho Minami: VOICED BY HIGH SCHOOL MUSICAL’S STEPHANIE CUEVAS

Ryusuke’s sister and a talented singer with a strange relationship with Koyuki. At times she seems attracted to him, other times she brushes him off with little regard to his often ignored feelings. She also has a great voice and can sing as well.

Awooo!! Awooo!! Awooo!!! 300 movie

I found Frank Miller during my youngling years,back in my comic collecting days. Batman the Dark Knight Returns gave me a chance to know more about Frank Miller. And now the movie 300 sent me back to Frank Miller again and dig some of his works. which I found it here in http://moebiusgraphics.com/.

ok lets go to the movie version.

I haven't read the comicbook 300, i was supposed to purchase one but at the Read or Die convention, the last copy was sold and my hyperness got lost and never buy the book, coz the movie is coming near at that time.

We watched the movie 300 last Wednesday in SM Mall of Asia, I was expecting a big crowd that weekday in theaters but we were lucky that few people watch it that night so its a good day for us to get a good seat.
The movie is a breath taking experience, and during the whole 1 1/2 hours of 300, I saw lots of violence and also imaging that I'm reading a moving action comic book of 300. Everything is well introduced, from the characters and also the story. Sometimes I just can't get the blue-green screen out of my head, coz I know from the start that all of it are in CGI and in chorma technology. I just really like what they do on the blood spilling effect when ever a spartan hit a persian enemy with its sword. Its all CGI and just like I see in Japanese horror movies, but I cant avoid criticizing the effects. - they forgot to put blood on the ground.

but its okay, it was well done and great execution process of cutting limbs in slo-mo and I was thinking of the entire screen wil be covered by blood.

the movie is one hell of a ride, I just can't breathe on some parts coz I got a thrilling feel that I just want King Leonidas kill the Persian god king, If you have seen the whole film, you will know what I feel at the end.

Now everyone talks about it, but few knows that this movie is from Frank Miller's comic creation, that was based on the classic film 300 Spartan. Its funny to known that childhood memories give a big push to anyone to do something that will please everyone. and Im talking about the 300 spartans..oh yeah! !awooo! awwo!!! awooo!!

If you seen the movie..now I recommend to you also that to read the comics hehehhe

Comics Appreciation Day

[my+boys.JPG]

its a saturday comics appreciation day at Comic Odyssey,Robinsons Galeria, me and Lace arrived a little late and didnt catch the other members of Transformers Philippines at the monthly activity called Comics Appreciation day, where people go there and appreciate the comics and contents of the title you want, and since we went there for the local release of the prequel movie comics of TransFormers we also held a short meeting after my visit to the to other side of black hole of Cybertron philipines (peace mark!)

We were suppose to have a good day out but I have an important meeting that day with some officials for getting them as a tie up for our ToyCon event. Then our day had lost when time eats the day and it turns into night, but nothing stops Lace (the queen of Dinobot Island) from having
her ice invasion. After I made her feel like a Jaba the hutt and eating all the meals in Pancake house, we went to the ice skating rink and ride all the ice until the SM Mall of Asia closes.

and then for the 3rd time...we failed to watch 300 !!!

I promised myself that I will watch the movie tomorrow! Tonight we dine in KFC !!!

------ Busy
been busy for awhile and this is the only post for today, Im busy for my day job and also for ToyCon, but I've missed a lot for ToyCon and I might give a schedule for that, coz Im still working to revive the whole website for Glass House Graphics and I have only 10% of it revive..whew~ more for the 80%

-- Hackenslash

I was informed awhile ago by Creative Voices Production that I will be the next guest for the podcast for Inquirer's Hackenslash , which they informed me also the couple of months and I'm surprised the next episode is me. and Also Im not sure what topic will they give to me and Im a little bit nervous coz its a hot seat for their podcast episode ehhhehe, but I can give a topic about TransFormers, and represent TransFormers Philippines, give them updates about the move, toys and etc. and also it can be about my job in Glass House Graphics or it can be more about the upcoming Philippine Toy Convention in June 16-17, well good luck to me, im excited also.

hheheheh everybody is a gamer!

--- Absorbing man

ehheh Im turning into a human absorbing man, ehhhe Lace is here with me using my laptop, while I use her desktop PC for my jobs, Im absorbing her all pressure and stress about her new work. hehhehe..

Laptop is back!

finally, after 6months of retiring my old Dell Laptop inside the Victoria Secret bag, now it performs very well and it feeds on Globe Broadbands connected via a USB LAN to a prolink modem, whew! I tried to revive this Pentium II CPiA laptop back into action and it first help me last wednesday for our ToyCon meeting for the video presentation and also image show of the teaser poster, im still planning to enhance this laptop more like putting in WiFi card and external DVD recorder ehheheh. but that will have to wait coz you know some gadgets are little pricey.

but there are new cool finds like the LG DVD writer with lighscribe, just saw that in PC Magazine and it cost only for about P2k, and then I will put that in an external case enclosure, and thats P800 in Cyberzone megamall.
instead of acquiring the P7k DVD external, I'll just use the two above for less expense.

Im going out for an important meeting while I upload some stuff for the GHG website, which still undergoes major restoration process after the site5.com system crash, and now the site is going back to surfing normal for about hhmm..20 percent only. Its hard to get the old files back, but im glad that there are some part
are being handled by the GHG team. whew!

ToyCon is coming near and my brains for getting new concepts are burning like french fries hahahah
hmmm maybe il eat one later.

we will watch 300 hohohoho..Tonight we dine in Hell !! oh yeah!!

The years of CampV5


its a Voltes V fan group in Manila and I think it was the first ever fan group that was publicly known as Camp V5. I have restored digitally some analog videos at home and here it is a feature in Extra Extra, you will see me there so thin, fresh from a one week recovery from my kidney treatment.



The year when the animation Voltes V was revive by GMA-7 and shown the first ever english dubbed of the last 4 episodes in the big screen. This was way back before HERO TV revive it and re-dubbed it in Filipino.

the year is 1999.

the CampV5 ML is still active and the original members are still active online.
you can check out the group website at http://www.geocities.com/camp_v5/campframe.html

Lets talk about movies

At night, in the presence of evil, stunt rider Johnny Blaze becomes the Ghost Rider in Columbia Pictures' Ghost Rider
Ghost Rider

I've been waiting for this movie and its another big start for 2007 for Marvel and its movie company. Ghost Rider landed on the big screen and I know that the buzz is humongous but people seems not to care or aware of this Marvel character, the hit was like in Daredevil and not to compare it with Spider-man or Fantastic Four movies or Blade. The movie is still fresh and Im looking more forward for more Marvel movies, hope the others will be much more good thatn their previous. Many nay-sayers in the internet and movie reviews says that this movie sucks...I was kinda prepared for that before I watch it and expect it a no-good review. But its weird when I watched it, its a some kind of date movie ahhahaha, yeah! thats right! bring your girl and watch it here. Its not that scary or a horror flick, seeing demons and death as one of the characters. you'll just enjoy it when your girl got scared or flipped out in some scenes. geezz I almost fell in my chair in one of those crazy scenes.

I know its bad, they say the script is bad, acting is bad, effects is bad.
hhmmmmm its weird that my 10 year old spirit possessed me and then enjoyed watching the movie. just praying for a sequel ehehehhe . Spirit of Vengeance as they say..or maybe Midnight Sons. hmmm.


Spider-man 3

This is a new art for the movie, A new trailer will be seen and launched this monday in NBC between the episode 18 of HEROES. oh wow, Il just wait for a download clip of that in the internet and March will be a season for Spider-man 3, as you know that everytime a new trailer or teaser comes out, fans are getting wild and hyper. For now many fans are waiting for a Sandman, Goblin poster and also VENOM....

also the new trailer will be seen before the 300 movie screening.



Fantastic Four 2: Rise of the Silver Surfer

good news !! Galactus will be in this movie! thanks to the director of the film for posting the news in his blog, Tim Story did a good update on that one, and he said that they are now fixing the graphic details for Galactus and also a WETA treatment for Silver Surfer.
Dr. Doom will be here too, my guess is that Doom will fool and convince Galactus to destroy the Fantastic Four hahhaha.. oh well. just like in the comics or animation. Doom can do anything just to get what he wants.


300

I don't have a premiere ticket!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

showing in theaters this March 7 and Im sooooo excited to watch it. too bad that theres no ticket for a premiere for me, i just hope that I just let that Music and Lyrics premiere go and instead wish for a 300 premiere this monday, i think.

if you have 2 extra tickets. just email me or message me here hahahahahh


[OPMegs1.jpg]
