Getting to Know the Two Jinchuuriki's

Naruto Shippuuden. The latest anime series that made me (once again after YuYu Hakusho)an addict cartooner kid so far. No, i never catches this series at ABS-CBN every afternoon. I am enjoying it over and over again in dvd copy. I liked it better in Japanese version or shall i say, original version in not so original copy...ah basta!

The story's cool. Action-packed. It's very entertaining and interesting to know what Shinobi's are, who and what are the Chuunins, the Juunins, and the Genins, who are the people from Konoha, from The Sand Village, that there is also a sub-group from Konoha called the ANBU-Root. There's so many to explore and to enjoy as well in the story as the mission goes tougher and tougher, deeper and deeper. The other interesting part is knowing that Gaara(Kazakage)and Naruto(Genin), apart from becoming a Hokage, were also both Jinchuurikis in which, what's inside them are what the Akatsuki want, the Kyubi's inside them that mixes in their own chakras which enables them to triple their power and strenght.

Friendship, and sacrifices, learning to help in times of danger, troubles and in needs. Just watch it and you'll see what this whole thing means.

Pedicab: A Hip, Techno Ride

Techno-Rock. Sounds like a collaboration. Indeed. This wasn't that hip at the early times of the Pinoy rock. Booming starts early 20's when iconic Raimund Marasigan bravely applied techno sound to ever Pop-Punk Eraserheads. Results? Sticker Happy, Natin 99, and Carbon Stereo Oxide to site a few. Of course it was all a success. Everybody knew it. But after the 'Heads' fate, Raimund never put a period for his Techno-fetish deeds. Early 20's, he had himself an alter-ego known as Squid 9, and some good-looking bloke named Diego Mapa with his band flagged as Monsterbot arisen with a sonic success. Of course, Techno-Rock was become an instant hit with their singles Explosive, Bury The Oreo, Everything You. I knew it because i have a Destroy! Destroy! record. T'was circa '02 to be exact. Behind this success was Raimund acted as their producer. Maybe the band liked Techno in the first place. As Carlo Navarro, the Porta Sound-Tonebank-Synths player of the band emphasizes the chords, really amazing!

And everything evolves into a new era. Circa '03 or '04 (whichever), Pedicab appeared on to the mainstream and heard over the radio with Dizzy Boy as their carrier single and reached the top of the polling charts over NU107 and KLite's. Tugish Takish, a post-Monsterbot project of Diego "Mappy" Mapa with Twisted Halo's Jason as "J-Sonic", x-Teeth Mike Dizon as the group's master pounder and two others (sorry guys, forgot your tags). There's a track titled A Stormy Night, obviously sung by Raimund back-upped with Mappy. Sounds so Brit Pop! It was my personal favorite aside from Dizzy Boy and Dito Tayo Sa Dilim. During live performances, the band had justified every track on Tugish Takish. Very well done! And oh yeah, you can dance to the beat, help yourself! By the way, why Pedicab? Man, don't ask me..maybe because it's all Pinoy made, a hip techno ride with a huge space in Pinoy Rock scene on the time line.

"Usually, i'm up at 8, have breakfast and train, lunch, homework, train again, go to work out, come home, do yoga or another class, then go to sleep aroud 10:30 pm. Fall asleep, actually, i wouldn't say i'm a good athlete, but i'm a good tennis player. i want to be number one. If there's a line, i want to be first in line."

-Maria Sharapova

"Sometimes, the worst part of my work out is what i end up liking that...you only see what you're really made of when the going gets rough. i know i'm a tough cookie. But that doesn't mean i won't catch a tearjerker with my girlfriends. Or that i'll give the ice cream pass after a session at the gym. Either way, i deserve every treat."

-Anne Sen

"i want to go to a heavy metal concert and show the guys what moshing is."


"i am a caffeine junkie...coffee keeps me hopping and bopping along all day."


"i'm conspiring with my hamster and teddy bear to take over the world!"


"Whether it's in the gym or at the office, i don't like being under someone else's thumb."


i am beautiful and i am real. This has been my story and yours too. Sometimes, i don't get quite as far as where i wanted. But hey, the journey was always fun. i've learnt a thing or two along the way too. That's what counts right? One thing's for sure, i'll keep setting the bar higher and higher. And i don't have to apologize for being myself.

for the bisexuals

who do i let myself flung
into the abyss of your galaxy?

that varied with bright colors,
that reflects your oneness,

that made me a captive
with your rousing attitude,

that lets me go winding up
about everything, everything you.

but not intently to be like you
and yes, to be with you at times,

with your extended arm
you let me slip,

as a friend , who's flying and gliding all over,
into the abyss of your galaxy,

that varied with bright colors,
that reflects your oneness.
