the news came in awhile ago, this morning Manila time. when i just missed this audio annoucement of this big secret. and when i logged in, i was busy cooking our breakfast and when i checked back, the announcement is done and people in the chatroom were asking if is gone or cancelled. and then it raises my eyebrows and feel a little disappointed. - az says - damn! themovieblog is gone! -

but im happy to read and hear their news today that john will be leading
their blog is one of my inspiration in the world of blogging and even that i just catch their live net radio event and chat with john, its pretty clear that he is very devoted and now got a job that he really wants.

will i leave my own blog ?

probably not ahahahha..

left Manila at 4:30am and arrived in Tayabas at 11:30am

Sleeping in the bus within 4 hours is great! but staying inside with a broken aircon at the 5 hour sucked!

1 hour before

its 1 hour before 4am, and Im here blogging into something that will stay me awake for another one hour. We will be leaving at 4am to get a bus ride going to Tayabas, Quezon to visit the cemetery in observance of the All souls day.

Im here in Pasig with my sister and I lived here originally and its cold in here, the temperature here in our house didnt change at all, but it is so weird that my 3rd eye just opened again and now im blogging just to let these noises stop bothering me, my TV is on and tuned in to MTV, listening to music and all.

and while I type this, I just dont want to stop any fingers in typing, because my 3rd eye is opening again and i dont want to go insane and feeling these kind of eerie stuff. my sister is sleeping and i just cant get myself to sleep. im seeing movements in my left side near the door. damn...damn... i should have turn the lights on.

ok turn the lights in the kitchen area.

-- click.

im hearing weird noises outside and it is just so weird that no one outside is awake at this time at a dark area in front of our door, carrying a shovel dragging it from the ground.
and beginning to dig something..

i just remembered that there are no open soil infront or nearby, all cemented flooring
so it is just weird to hear this someone digging and using a shovel.

why shovel ? because im hearing this metallic thing being dragged and someone is cleaning up or picking up something outside.
and it is impossible to anyone enter here because the gate in this compound is closed and all people are sleeping.

it is just so weird.. now im feeling not good today.
just like the old days when i felt like professor xavier of the x-men, i can track and pin point were all these whie ladies are located.
and yeah! pretty scary , because some of them are staying in the roofs of some houses.

now im beginning to get a chill in here.

to relax my self im now starting to google some images of Brandi Svenning just to relax my self. but i think the case is too late for me.. i felt that half or 1/3 of my 3rd eye is opened. and it is more better than opening it all. maybe someone just triggered this accidentally.
or maybe a spirit nearby is guarding us.. and yeah..i guess its our grand parents from my father side, because they know we will be visiting them today in our province.

its going to be an exciting ride today, 5-6 hours of continious ride from Manila to San Pablo to Lucena to Candelaria to Tayabas. whew! it will be a busy ride today..

il be blogging again if theres an internet connection there or at least a wifi hotspots in the mountains..

booo !!!!!!!

He-Man animatics for the live action movie

just saw this blog post at and i thought that this is some kind of rough animatics of He-man, but when I viewed it, I almost dropped my butt from my chair. Living and growing up with the old He-man cartoon still kicks in our bloods, and I know everyone didnt forget the animation and the Dolph Lundren the live action movie of He-man, which that when I watched it when I was a kid, never thought that it was a He-man live action movie. all I know that it was titled Masters of the Universe.

checked out the animatics here and see if it reaches your taste.
but for me... it will be awesome to have another live action movie. throwing a lot of CGI and great SFX. check out on Skeletor's line at the end.. cool di ba ?

Movie night tonight

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.
me and lace will have a zombie night ..the premiere night of 30 Days of Night in Gateway Mall.
we will go there after Ben Templesmith's book signing. Im wondering if Ben will join the premiere night. for info about the movie, check the youtube video below. III

my lecture at Filnegosyo

I forgot to make a blog post about my lecture and now that I have more time to blog and for today is my rest day in events and other stuff. I also uploaded a recorded version of my lecture about blogging your business to success and also an introduction to blogging. I used a Creative Zeon 2 mp3 player with recorder in documenting my lecture so that I can share it to all.

Im not a professional in blogging and I know Im not the right guy for giving lectures, but the people around me chose me to share my experience and knowledge about web blogging.
Im so scared in talking in this big event and If there are any bloggers who are offended or do not acccept what I said in this lecture, it will be better to note me privately and correct me if theres something wrong in my lecture, so that I can notice my mistakes and improve it more.

I arrived at around 2:30pm and almost got a trouble in arriving in the venue, got so tired in organizing my own event at the comic seminar and I created my slides and web page screen caps that morning, in other words,, cramming hahaha, It was like back in college, preparing a big presentation for my thesis. Been blogging snce 2003 and using the internet in my business since 1997, so you can see a big structure on how and when did I started in this internet thing and making it as a career today.

The image “” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

I went to check the event on its first day of opening and see who will be my attendees and I just observed that most of them are students and business people. I tried making a funny and entertaining slide, like putting cartoon characters and other images that seems to be more funny. like teddy bears, animals and celebrities. I did that just to make the audience focus on the slide and later on listen to my lecture and do some amusing stunts, making the atmosphere lively.

Students are aware already on the blogging world and most of them are into Friendster and Multiply, thus they arent aware about the livejournal, blogger, wordpress and etc. Making an introduction about blogging raise more curiosity in my audience of business people. One of them asked a question on how will they use blogging as a tool for their businesses and some of them asked me if it is easy to use and is it cheap. I answered them that they can use it for business and for the web blog example I used in my slide and seems that they are convinced that they can use it as online shop, product catalog, and it is easy to use and cheap, less cost expensive in that way.

Some student asked me questions about how can they use it for their business. I was surprised that these Rizal Technology University are into business and they shared to me that they have products for sale and like to learn more on blogging, but when i found out that he has a multiply account, I told him that he can use the blogging engine of multiply and photos album to upload his product and turn it into a virtual catalog.

there was a coaching and mentorship program after the lecture, the students took photos of me with them and they will use it for their school study and also use it to show it to their professors. A salon businessman approached me and asked the same question too about how can they use blogging in their business. I just told them that they can have a blog with no cost and it can serve it as their official website, I just told them that you just need a regular writer to put blog post about your services, products and also put tips on about getting a great hairdo or make up.

A community service officer from Candelaria, Quezon approached and told me that their org has a blog but he doesnt have the time to update it, I just told him that even that you spend more time in surfing social networking sites, you can use blog in reporting your activites and also promoting your community events and annoucements. just try to do a story from it and that will serve as your content for your blog.

pretty fun on that day, met a lot of person and It was a great experience in sharing what I know about blogging. I even got a talk with the president of Argon Lasers light, he just shared to me this program about the discipline in getting and earning money out from nothing. which gives me interest in how can they raised a P800 from talking and not having any expense at all. hmmm I might try it soon and blog it about here.

thanks to Exlinks, Megatrade Hall and Filnegosyo for inviting me at their event
and hope we can have more talks and lectures about blogging.
