The bouncers and their muscles

I just observed that some bouncers who are incharge in some events or concerts uses their muscles to much and not their brains. I just observed this many times whenever I will ask for a certain person incharge of the event and they will simply answer that they don't know them, but after understanding the situation and tell them that I like to talk to the people who can help me get the person I'm looking for, they will simply answer that they don't know anyone from the event and don't know who's incharge.And then after finding out that this bouncer guarding the media gate can't really help me, I decided to tell him that I need to go inside and look for the person incharge myself, I will leave my bag and things to him and allow me to enter the event and go back to him at the gate after I got my pass, but then the bouncer guy will just answer, I don't know anyone and I was asked to guard the gate and not anyone enter it.

Ok, got the real problem now, and told him, I'm not interested to talk to you and need to talk the person incharge, paikot ikot lang tayo and I don't want to wait here at gate waiting for nothing. I raised my voice already and it seems that the bouncers with big muscles didn't use his brains in understanding a solution for this problem.

Bouncers at events should be briefed properly,whenever they will deal with special guests, media and celebrities. I just observed from another event that this bouncer guy infront of the stage took us away from the stage area, I told him I'm one of the official person being invited to cover the event, and after that he drag away some photographers out of the front of the stage, I told the bouncer guy that how can we do our work if we stay out of the stage, he said that he got orders from the organizers. Okay I understand after knowing the 'organizers' word, but I told him that I'm interested to talk to the organizer who told you that, then he looked around and said that he don't know the guy organizer. And told him. What if I am the organizer and instruct you to clear all the people infront of  the stage, will you do it? then the bouncer guy looked at me and then can't even answer my question.

I mind my own business and take a time to do patintero with the bouncer guy while taking pics. I even saw that he instructed 3 person to go out of the stage, but then these persons are wearing ALL ACCESS ID, then the 3 persons were shocked and asking why would be out of the stage, I think they are one of the special guest of the event or maybe the organizers. I told the bouncer that they should know first what's the ALL ACCESS ID is for, and beside the area is for ALL ACCESS people and not the area for the audience, I told the bouncer guy that they must be the organizers and should not shooo them away.

I know not all bouncers are like that, but I guess the bouncers I encountered maybe their first time to be incharge at the event. But here's a tip, we have to out wit them if ever we need to deal with them.

FOX, World's No. 1 US TV series channel now in the Philippines

This is what we need! more awesome cable tv channel and more provider of US tv series, para di na tayo magdownload ng magdownload sa torrent ng mga tv series. I really love the development of American tv channel coming in and they know that there really is a big market for tv fans. Check out the PR below.

Philippines, first Southeast Asian country to launch FOX

American TV series are such big hits in the Philippines that it really was just a matter of time for the world’s No. 1 United States TV series channel to come to South East Asia (SEA). In several other Asian countries such as Japan, FOX has already emerged as the no. 1 channel on primetime in all cable networks in 2008 and 2009, according to average rating (RVCS2.0). Meanwhile, FOX has dominated local pay-TV markets as the No.1 channel in the western TV series genre in Korea for three consecutive years since 2007. (more below)

Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time (full movie trailer)

I just saw the full movie trailer last night at the Alice in Wonderland premiere and my expectation for the movie just changed after the watching the trailer. I think this will be another upcoming trilogy movie after the Pirates of the Caribbean movie series. I just hope Walt Disney can get God of War too and turn it into a live action movie.

Set in the mystical lands of Persia, Prince of Persia: The Sands of Time is an epic action-adventure about a rogue prince (JAKE GYLLENHAAL) and a mysterious princess (GEMMA ARTERTON) who race against dark forces to safeguard an ancient dagger capable of releasing the Sands of Time—a gift from the gods that can reverse time and allow its possessor to rule the world.

Directed by Mike Newell (Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) with a cast that includes SIR BEN KINGSLEY and ALFRED MOLINA, and a screenplay by Doug Miro & Carlo Bernard from a screen story by Jordan Mechner and Boaz Yakin.

Only at the movies May 27

Krispy Kreme Kruffins

krispy kreme kruffins
We're here at Krispy Kreme Jaka Makati, doing some live blogging and after a few minutes they will launch here the new addition of doughnuts. The Kruffins will be the new favorite of all Krispy Kreme lovers, you can eat them for breakfast, lunch and dinner, or even merienda. This is offered only at Ayala and Greenhills branch only, but it will be available soon in other stores nationwide.

I tried the Apple Streussel, a part of the sweet kruffins, because they have two kinds of kruffins, the savory and the sweet. The kruffins are priced at P65-P70 pesos, and available only from 6AM-2PM, but according the Rick of Krispy Kreme that could change in the future and based on the demands of the Filipino Krispy Kreme lovers. The kruffins were first released in the USA and now they are here and  first to be available here in Asia, and we pinoys are lucky to have new kind of doughnuts.

they have promo trial in some branches of Ayala and Greenhills, try it for only P99 and it comes with a coffee partner of your choice.

Special Olympics Philippines Calls On Everyone To Be A Fan

Intellectual disability is the largest single life-long handicap existing in the Philippines today, affecting 3-7% of the population. More than 30,000 are born annually with the condition, and each passing year sees a rise in this figure. Each one of these special individuals needs the same care, attention and opportunity to be treated with respect and understanding as everyone else – because in the end, we are all human. On the same month that Presidential Proclamation Nos. 1358 and 157 calls national attention on Down Syndrome and developmental disability, Special Olympics Philippines (SOP) calls on everyone to “Be a Fan,” a movement tapping into core attributes that everyone can appreciate – unity, acceptance, empowerment, dignity, courage, strength, pride, confidence and fun – for special individuals to receive the treatment they rightfully deserve, a rights based one.

you know the drill :)

I will also send email invite for official members of Manila Bloggers Network and Movie Bloggers

In 1972, a scale of measurement was established for alien encounters. When a UFO is sighted, it is called an encounter of the first kind. When evidence is collected, it is known as an encounter of the second kind. When contact is made with extraterrestrials, it is the third kind. The next level, abduction, is the fourth kind. Modern-day, Alaska, where-mysteriously since the 1960s-a disproportionate number of the population has been reported missing every year.

Despite multiple FBI investigations of the region, the truth has never been discovered. Here in this remote region, psychologist Dr. Abigail Tyler began videotaping sessions with traumatized patients and unwittingly discovered some of the most disturbing evidence of alien abduction ever documented. The Fourth Kind exposes the terrified revelations of multiple witnesses. Their accounts of being visited by alien figures all share disturbingly identical details, the validity of which is investigated throughout the film

Shonen Knife concert in Manila 2010 (photo coverage)

The legendary band from Osaka, Japan - Shonen Knife, made people jump and dance with their song under the full moon of February 27, 2010 at the San Miguel By the Bay, SM Mall of Asia. I arrived so late while ago and glad that there is no traffic in EDSA. I txted Maybelle of Japan Foundation Manila for some instructions on how will I enter the venue and get my media pass, then she txted me that the band is already playing live. I got nervous and armed myself with my Olympus E520 DSLR and ready to boot off the taxi in the middle of road in MOA. I'm glad that the Japanese lady from JFM helped me get my VIP pass from their staff and then I entered the venue, its so small, but it already accommodated a lot of audience and I love the view facing the ocean and behind the stage is the fountain.

I see bubbles, wind and smoke flowing in the stage, and my lens captured Naoko's guitar strum, kicks and some jumps, Ritsuko made me smile seeing her rock with her bass guitar and with a lot of headbangs, Etsuko so quiet behind the two rockers and leads the band music by hitting those snares and cymbals embedded with smiles and glowing face. Naoko's voice didn't change for so many years, now I believe in her when she told me that the uniqueness of Shonen Knife comes from heavy rock and roll spirit, and that spirit makes Shonen Knife more stronger and alive. I just watched their last 9 songs, I missed the song Banana Chips, but that's okay I still got there on time to listen BBQ, Sushi Bar, Top of the world. They also played new songs and saw Ritsuko has some songs too. oh wow! I'm so impressed with her.

The crowd really loved them, saw some folks of our own band - pedicab and duster, rocks with them near the stage, the jmusic community here in Manila was there too as I met some band members after the concert and they still want more!. I managed to take some photos and I'm laughing at myself because I don't know if I will watch, shoot photos or dance or jump. Thanks to JFM for the event, hope you can bring another Japan artist next year.

gahh i'm still having a sushi bar hang over, but here are some of my photo coverage
