jason segel and emily blunt in GULLIVERSTRAVELS

Emily Blunt, the uptight fashion assistant who came to mainstream attention in “The Devil Wears Prada” throws in comedic poetry in the family-3D movie “Gulliver’s Travels” with Jack Black.

The movie starts in modern-day New York City where Jack Black’s Gulliver works in the mailroom of a newspaper who has a long-time secret crush on the paper’s travel editor Darcy, (Amanda Peet). Hoping to impress Darcy, Gulliver bluffs his way to a writing assignment at the Bermuda Triangle only to find himself washed away in the miniature island of Lilliput where Princess Mary (Blunt) resides.

Interview with the creators of Generation Rex (premieres in Cartoon Network this Jan. 9 )

Rex (4)
I saw this trailer of Generation Rex in our Cartoon Network during the Christmas season and I'm very into it and didn't expected that this new cartoon series is from the creators of Ben 10. I like the character design of Generation Rex and his style in fighting some monsters with his arms and limbs are extending and turned into some kind of machine, he's like that because he was infected by a microscopic nanites (nano tech organisms) that pumps through his body. The good part here is that he is in the good sides and will save people who were also infected and defeat evil people like E.V.O. Van Kleiss. Btw, E.V.O. means Exponentially Variegated Organisms. The new series will premeire this January 9, 2011 at 9am in Cartoon Network.

and check out below an interview with the creators - Joe Casey, Joe Kelly, Duncan Rouleau and Steven Seagle from Man of Acton Studios.

Black Nazarene Feast Map 2011

View Black Nazarene Feast Map 2011 in a larger map

I just found a map and route of the procession for the Feast of the Black Nazarene, the map was first provided by GMA 7 and you can see the map above. More details are posted here in their site

I noticed that the route is much the same from the route they used last year. Looks like that I'll be staying in Lawton area to welcome the arrival of the Black Nazarene. I'll arm myself with my camera and hope I can bring a mini chair so that I can sit while waiting for the arrival. Also, I'll note myself to bring my Olympus rain coat and bring lots of water. The procession will start in Quirino grandstand and then after the mass it will walk going to Padre Burgos st. to Quiapo church.

Feast of the Black Nazarene on January 9, 2011

The Feast of the Black Nazarene will be this January 9, 2010. I'm still waiting for updates on our local TV and radio for news about the mass, procession and the route of the Black Nazarene. Expect heavy traffic so check if your cars need an oil change or a brake job. I'm also hoping that I can shoot again just like last year. It was my first time to shoot and cover the Black Nazarene procession and it was a like a warzone!

I'm now researching for new spots and good vantage point in covering the arrival of the statue. I saw on the news that the people in Quiapo are busy cleaning up the road, fixing some streets and lighting, and clearing the sidewalks. There might be a lot of changes on the route for this year. I also checked out Houston Auto Repair for motorist tips.

It will be a Pray,Eat and shoot for us again. Pray, and then eat in Binondo and then shoot in Lawton.

Start small and go BIG in Gulliver's Travels (a tiny movie review)

Layout 1
I watched the movie press screening of Gulliver's Travels and I totally recommend that you watch this movie especially if you are a Jack Black fan or curious about the story of Guilliver being stranded in an island filled with people that their size is small like a GI JOE action figure. This movie is revived from Jonathan Swift's 1726 novel with the same title. The movie is super laugh trip and a good comedy film for the start of the year 2011.

Fight crime in 3D with the Green Hornet

The Green Hornet is not my favorite superhero and crime fighting character, it reminds me of Batman and Robin, but that was during the classic tv series that I know and I just discovered that Bruce Lee is Kato after I got circumcisized and read it via a geek video game magazine. I regret that I missed it, and thanks to the wonderful of internet and YouTube, The Green Hornet is alive and kicking again, we have now here the new movie and revival of Green Hornet and Kato, starring Seth Rogen and Jay Chou, I dont care if they label it as a action-comedy film, but I know deep inside the film there will be lots of serious stuff and also tributes from the classic version. Oh! watching it in 3D will be awesome, I just hope they do it the right way. I will enjoy for sure.. Seth Rogen with Cameron Diaz will rock.

Read more below and see how they shot this film in 3D

AXN Wraps Up 2010 as THE No. 1 International Channel in Southeast Asia

Congratulations to AXN for another record hit as the number 1 International Channel in Southeast Asia, I know they are always the number that's why I'm not very surprised, I encountered AXN years ago and met lots of great people who are working in there and it seems that the spark they release back then never dies and still make us glued to watch all of these tv series and special tv features (and movies) always on AXN. The Amazing Race Asia is always the top notch show, and the most anticipated for me because we have two teams carrying our flag, and also the new tv series Hawaii Five-O, which I heard that is doing well. I think I should catch up and watch that series now.

Jack Black's interview about his role in "Gulliver’s Travels" (opens on January 8)

I'm not very familiar about the story and I haven't read the whole book at Guilliver's Travels,all I know is that he is big and everyone around him is small. I see pictures and drawings in some children's book back in my grade school days, but I never got the chance to read it and got more interest in reading art books and hobby crafts how to's in UST. But I'm glad that they are bringing back the classic story via movie with a modern treatment and it will be helpful for me and for others, especially for kids to embrace another timeless and classic story that we aren't familiar with it. Jack Black is here in the movie as Lemual Gulliver and this movie will open up something for us and get us back  reading books after we watch this movie.

Read below an interview of Jack Black about his role and about the movie

I heard that the Hulk figure is one of the chase item on this toy line, and its a near the scale size of the Marvel Universe 3 inches line. My hands are itchy and I must have a Hulk figure first and then grab Wolverine after it. Im glad we have this line in the Philippines.

I took 99,000 photos already

I was researching online about photography and then I was curious to know how many photos I took since I got this Olympus E520 dslr last April 2009 and I figured it out after I google and know about the shutter count and lifespan of its shutter, I got scared to discover that DSLR has a certain lifespan depends on the number of how many times you shoot or the number of the shutter count. I read a lot in some blogs, forum and websites that some camera dies after a big number of shutter count, there are rumors that Olympus DSLR dies after the 50,000 shutter count, but I saw this website that give reports to other Olympus camera users that their Oly cams are still alive and hmmm others died. I submitted my shutter count to this Olegkikin site and my total of shutter count is - 99,146, it is also the number of photos I took for more than a year already. I now start to think and become more wiser in taking photos, I need to take care of my camera and save money for another DLSR unit, I still love to have a Olympus E620 body kit, but that should wait and I now target to get one this July 2010.

99,000 photos, wow! that's a lot, I'm such a trigger happy person, maybe I'll lessen the use of the time lapse photography and also the panoramic photos. I need to shoot wisely now and take care of this camera.
If you are an Oly camera user, you can check the tips here on how to know your Oly cam's shutter count just visit this -

So how many photos you took already?
