THE Beverly Cleary Tweeted me.

Take note. I didn't tweet her, nor direct a message to her. All I did was to take a Twitter test.

OH I LOVE YOU BEVERLY CLEARLY. I really want to meet you now and have all of my BC books signed.

Why the hell am I suggesting Facebook? Yes, I have a Facebook account already. GO ADD ME DALI.

Yesterday, our Pocket Idol turned 24. As a celebration, the peeps from ontd_ai came up with a birthday project. 200+ fans participated in this video, where each of us held up a word to the lyrics of No Boundaries.

The output is EPIC. Epic I say! *shakes fist*

What made it more amazing is that they got Alex Wagner-Trugman and Ricky Braddy to participate in the video.

Enjoy your LSS moment; spot Alex, Ricky, me, Tia, Chikai, Trish, and Kaci!!

I came out twice:

1. Hand (2:28) - Philippines represent! I guess I should've formed the words "Happy Birthday" with the Scrabble tiles. Didn't think of that until another Kris fan pointed it out. wengk wengk wengk. I also didn't have black nail polish so that I could have a Kris nail, so I just mixed whatever I had: blue and red. I ended up having a purple thumb.

2. Where (1:42) - This was last minute. There was a desperate request to fill in for some words. I guess no one wanted to get them because of the super duper split-second exposure. Since I already submitted the "hand," I didn't care much on how long the word would be shown. Thanks to mom for helping me take this photo. I was lazy to set up my tripod and use the self-timer.

Chikai was holding the word "'cause." (2:40)
Trish was holding the word "climb." (2:48)
Tia was in a blue and pink striped top, holding the word "through." (2:14)
Kaci wrote "hurricanes" on her arm. (2:15)
Alex held up the word "you" while blowing a nose bubble. GROSS BB. (2:42)
Ricky held up his lappy with the word "you" typed on it. (2:29)

*tear* I'm so proud of us guys.



spam wars

>> Saturday, June 20, 2009

Congratulations to Alvin for his wohnnndurfull exhibit!

Check out "Spam Wars" at the Big and Small Gallery, 4th Floor, Megamall A. His artwork are for sale and they're made out of awesomeness and epic win.

Adi, Emman and I dragged Alvin to Megamall to give us a tour of his gallery. We stayed there for about half an hour to an hour, just talking about his painting process and anything that concerned his paintings.

The best part about having the artist around is that I get to touch the painting. Hahhahaha It's bad manners if you touch the painting without asking permission from the artist. Some artists do not want their work to be touched, because the sweat and the dirt from the visitor's hands might ruin the color or the texture of the artwork. But since Alvin gave the go signal, I let my finger connect with the canvas... literally. Hahaha

The gallery is open until tomorrow before it will be transfered to a bigger gallery somewhere. Go support an artist, buy artwork.

More pictures of our goofiness at my Multiply.


locked out

>> Wednesday, June 17, 2009

This is too cute to be ignored:

Before I came to Connecticut, I got to spend the night (and just for the night, not even day) in Utah. I couldn't sleep, and I mentioned the cats on twitter... But I wrote a letter to a friend and put it in the mailbox that night, or I guess morning lol, so I wouldn't forget to send it before I had to leave to CT. Well funny thing, when I turned the door knob it was locked. You can open it inside but not on the outside. I didn't have my phone with me, and no one was answering the door. I tried throwing small pebbles at the window but that didn't work either. So there I was in my PJ's outside, without shoes, and cold! I ran down the street to keep the blood going and went to a friend's house, hoping they'd be awake or more responsive than at my place haha. I knocked on the window that I thought was my friend's room, but I'm guessing that I guessed wrong or he wasn't awake, or something. I went back to the front and just knocked on the door, and thankfully his dad happened to be awake. So he opens the door and there I am standing in my PJ's feeling stupid, but I was so glad to go inside somewhere warm! Anyway I eventually got back into the house, and headed to the airport a couple hours later heh. Well I thought I'd share that story with you all lol.

Imagine David Archuleta running down your street in the middle of the night. Hahahaha

If Cook was with him, they could do this:

Follow him on Twitter: @DavidArchie


Every year we're getting closer to who we're gonna be

Reanne's partay was a blast! Liza, Regi and I are never too old to enjoy debuts. However, we were the only friends present who have graduated from college already. We were surrounded by college kids, batch 2011. They'll graduate by 2011. I bet one of us will be married already by 2011 (hindi ako yon). ahahaha Reanne called her friends by first name basis. When she addressed us, there was always an 'Ate' or 'Kuya'. Yes, we're that old.

"We partied like rockstars!" /Liza. Yeaaaah, rockstars in white.

It was an all-white debut. Those who failed to follow the rules faced a consequence that involved raw eggs. Mwohohoho. Evil laugh on those who came in other colors.

Liza and I loved the song choices of the program. When one of Reanne's friends played the keyboard, Liza and I sang along to "Think of Me," complete with the high trills. Then during the 18 roses, two of David Archuleta's songs were used (Think of Me and You Can). When it was Bro A's turn to dance with Reanne, the song "For Good" played. Wikkid geeks unite! Too bad, Reanne removed 525,600 minutes in the song list. I'm sure we would've sang along to that song too.

I was so close to killing Reanne. We've been talking about her program since last year, but she never mentioned that I was part of her program. So imagine the shock when the coordinator texted me an hour before the debut, reminding me that I would be part of the 18 Flashbacks. KACHING KACHING. Regi helped me think of a memory and I used it. YAAAAYYYYY. Savior ka, Regi.

Abusing the photobooth. We were trying to channel musical characters, but with the lack of proper props, we just had to manage with what was available. Me as the white Elphaba, Regi as the Phantom (fail red mask haha) and Liza as Galinda. TOSS TOSS!!

The purdee lights inside Plaza Ibarra

Pumipicture habang may program dun sa likod. Pasaway.

The boyband of the night. Ang cute nilang lahat. :| =)) One is adorable cute, one is heyy cute, and one is picture-perfect cute. HAHAHAHA Why are the cute guys younger than me???????

This part was funny. When it was Max's turn to sing, the two guys left him alone to serenade Reanne. Reanne's blockmates told her to sit beside Max. Soooooooo. Fishy. =))

YUN YON EH. Nagtilian yung mga tao when Max hugged Reanne. HAHAHAHHAHAHAHA

More pictures at me Multiply. I'll wait for Reanne to post the photos from the official photographer. Legolas (the name Liza gave to the photographer because he looked like Legolas, only with curly hair), took photos of me while taking photos with my Joshua bullhorn. Nakarami siyang photos, so I want them. :)) I also want to see the photos of us with Reanne!

HAPPY BIRTHDAY AGAIN, DEAR! See you online next week. hahaha


i see your true colors shining through

The American Idol 8 Tour is kicking off in July. They have a new gimick: the idols will have their respective tour colors. So for the fans who will be watching the show, show your support by wearing your idol's colors.

Matt Giraud: Black and white plus fedoras

@MGiraudOfficial On tour my fans will be wearing black and white. With fedoras :) see ya then. I'll be looking for the fedoras out there!

Danny Gokey: Purple

@dannygokey Hey u guys for the tour I'm thinking the color purple. It was my wife's favorite color and it stands for royalty! =)

Michael Sarver: Orange
Megan Joy: Yellow

@michaelsarver1 Since Megs color is yellow I am more than happy to go with orange. Spread the word. Michaels tour color will be orange.

Scott MacIntyre: Red

@IdolScott Everyone ready to RED it up on tour?! :)

Anoop Desai: Blue (Carolina blue, to be exact)

@AnoopDoggDesai Tour color is Carolina Blue, of course!!

Adam Lambert: Black and blue (and a lotta glitter!)

From the comcast.net chat: Blue and silver... and definitely a lot of black. And bring your black nail polish and your eyeliner, people! And just sprinkle glitter all over everything!

I'm still on the lookout for the colors of Adam, Kris, Allison (looks like it ain't gonna be red because Scotty took that color) and Lil. If I were going to the tour, I'd wear a multi-colored shirt; or change shirts every set. haha

Forgive me twitter peeps, I filled your Twitter pages with my tennis tweets.

my live streaming is delayed.
so much for bagel. GO FEDERER!!!! WIN IT, WIN THE FRENCH OPEN 2009! (how specific can i get?)
NO ONE BULLIES FEDERER!!! someone shoot that guy.

Photo by Reuters

(I got the wrong info. Hahaha I thought the guy wanted to attack Federer. But judging on his socks, it looks like he's supporting the Fed. According to the photos on daylife.com, the guy tried to put a beanie on feddy bear. Srsly, how will the guy play tennis with a beanie? The guy still gets carried out of the arena after a cat-dog chase around the court. :)) Dang it, I should've seen that.)

Via Yahoo! Sports:

A man stunned Roger Federer and the crowd at the French Open when he leapt onto the court and tried to place a red hat on Federer’s head during the men’s final on Sunday.

Federer pushed the intruder aside, and the man then danced in front of him waving a Barcelona soccer team flag.

Security guards ran onto the court to subdue the man, but he jumped over the net. A security guard from Robin Soderling’s side of the court then ran out and tackled him. He was carried off the court by three security guards.

Police later said he was jailed for questioning and could be charged with illegally entering a sports stadium. Police said the man claimed to be a fan of Federer.

Intruders have interrupted Grand Slam finals before, at Roland Garros and elsewhere, but what made this episode scarier was the man went right up to Federer and touched him.

After the man was taken away, a security guard approached Federer to check if he was OK. The Swiss player smiled and nodded. A moment later, Federer turned to look up at his wife in the stands and then adjusted his headband.

Federer won the first set 6-1 and was leading 2-1 in the second set when the man got through a row of photographers and jumped onto the court. Federer lost that game at love, but then won the next.

ay nako. 5-5.
THANK YOU FEDERER. 6-1, 7-6(1). one set to go BB!!! Imma celebrate with balut and TimTam.
wtf. why is soder-meh higher than federer at the trending topics? that's it. Every tweet I do will have Roger Federer in it.
ohhhh is that agassi in the audience?
I'm doing a jedi hand wave to my computer to manipulate the tennis scores. It seems to be working.
Mirka is one pretty pregg-o.
Feddy BB, how will I understand your speech. You're speaking in French.
why are the trophies so lame? Soderling gets a tray. A silver tray. He can use that to buy his food at the cafeteria.
soderling should've been given a better trophy.

THREE STRAIGHT SETS. The game would've been more epic if it was a Fedal finals. Mia said that when Soderling was serving, some people from the audience were screaming "VAMOS RAFA!" Mwehehe.

My twitter feed is on a roll with the fed news:
@cnnbrk Roger Federer beats Sweden's Robin Soderling to win only tennis grand slam tennis tournament that had eluded him.
@THE_REAL_SHAQ Congratulations roger federe u deserve it bro, enjoy

Josh Groban is jealous of his dog, Sweeney.

This is what my dog is up to when I’m away doing promo. Is it wrong to be jealous of how many friends your pet has? Is that an ostrich? If he's gotten a role in a Disney film before me I'm going to be mad.

Josh = 0
Sweeney = 1

HAHAHAHAHAHAHA POOR JOSH. Sweeney is cool, he has a friend ostrich. Looks like Sweeney got a haircut!


Soundstage Presents: An Evening In New York City with Josh Groban

>> Thursday, June 04, 2009

I am such an impulsive buyer when it comes to Josh Groban albums. When the promo for the Awake CD/DVD was released, I broadcasted to the blogger wold that I wanted to have the DVD. Jace had it shipped from the States. If I waited a few months, then we would've gotten it at a cheaper price. The only consolation I got from the DVD is that I watched it before it was released here in the Philippines.

Now I'm doing the same for another Josh DVD. I'm 90% sure that this will not be released here because this is not part of any international tour.

I love this version of You Are Loved. It's a different arrangement from what is included in the Awake CD. Josh also included a bridge which lifts the inspirational value of the song.

When your heart is feeling alone
And your voice can not be heard
You can't always see the end
You don't need to find the words
You are someone I believe (in)
When the tears fall from above
Know that right now I am with you
And when I'm with you
You are loved

Along with the clip, the Josh Store put up a pre-order link to the whole concert. Being the impulsive buyer and fan, I immediately pre-ordered the DVD. Jace lent me his credit card and I promised to pay him as soon as he gets the bill for it. I didn't care how much it will cost me.

yumi: june 9 ang release date
di ko alam kung gano katagal shipping
Jace: so june 9, dapat nasa iyo na yan?
yumi: ganon ba yon?
haha pre-order kasi yan eh. so maybe it'll arrive days (or weeks) after june 9?
Jace: kasi the two times i ordered jason mraz online, the first one arrived on the release date. the second one, a week before
eh di sana on june 9
better if that way. haha
Jace: *crossed fingers*

I do hope I get it on the release date.
