Warren Ellis + Cobra Commander = WIN

Though he lost again, this was the most bad ass animated Cobra Commander ever.

"And this is how I win the world. This juncture of course, is usually where the wheels come off...but not this time. Cutting the traitor, Major Bludd's heart in half right in front of you right here in this room should've gotten the point across. It suited me once, to appear weak and cowardly, because it motivated you people to think...but today...is a new day. There will be no move to takeover my command. There will be no mistakes. There will be none of your crap! None of it!...Work with me and I will give you the world in less than 24 hours. Work against me, and I will gut you like a fish, right here."

So villainous and despicable. And so AWESOME.

Happy Ending

Chest-burster. That's what I'm thinking of right now. Yup. Girl of my dreams, she's right in front of me. And I'm having a nightmare.

Wow it's beating fast. It's rocking the ribs like it was King Kong stuck in a cage. My heart wants out. It wants to do what it's trying to get me to do. To hug her. To kiss her. To tell her how I feel. Go, now!

"Hey," I croak. Breathless. Nice. Saliva's all gone too. Lips are dry. Damn.

Breathe. Again.

"Hey," Better. Volume's up, good. Here goes.

"Yeah?" She smiles from across the table. It's small, her smile. Oh those dimples. Kill me now.

"...Um..." My lips, they're moving, my whole mouth is. I'm fidgeting with it. She can see that, relax! I bite under my lower lip. "There's something...I've been meaning to..." She's not looking at me. She's texting. Oh, she's not anymore. She's looking at me. "I'm trying to tell you something." No going back now.

"Oh, go! What is it?" She doesn't realize what it's about yet.

"...I um..." I close my eyes tight as I say it. I can't do it if I'm looking at hers. "Doyouwantmaybetogooutwithme?" Way too fast.

"What? Pardon?" She comes in closer. Her hair, it's framing her face in the really cute way that never fails to stun me. Stop that! Oh man I can't do this.

"I said..." Three..."I'm asking, do you wanna hang out sometime, like, maybe a movie or something?" Two..."Do you wanna go out with me?" Boom. That's it. No going back now. She's not saying anything. "Look, whatever you heard me say just now, your ears didn't hear wrong. I said what I said. Do you want to go out with me this weekend? And I'm asking, not as a friend, but as someone who...someone who wants to show you a good time. I'd like to take you out somewhere and not in the assassin-y way that 'take you out' could mean obviously, but like, in the having fun way. I'd like to try and make you smile, it's such a pretty smile you know. And lately, you've been so bummed and depressed and you, you've been doubting yourself for such a long time now and I've been telling you that you shouldn't and that the world, aside from cowards, also hates it when you're not happy because it's done so much and given you so much to be happy about!" She's just staring at me. "You're gorgeous and smart and cute and tall and you've got great hair, a great smile and everything on your face and body is great and you're intelligent and worldly and sporty and athletic and people love you! Yes, not so much those people who don't love you right now but whom you'd want to love you but like, everyone else, they'd kill for a chance to sit next to you or to say hi to you without you giving them a weird look, which you're giving me now, point is!" Deep breath before the plunge. "I'm asking you if you'd let me love you." Pause. Stare into her eyes. Hold it, don't lose it! Not Now! "Because I do. I loved you then, I love you now and I'm sure that ten years from now, I'm going to feel the same way." She's looking down. OH GOD! "So let me be that guy right now, for you. Your guy. That guy."

I'm Quantum-Leaping here, from right after I finished my mini-speech to after she spoke again. Because you wouldn't want to be bothered by what was going on in my head in those moments after. I don't know for how long she didn't speak. We just sat there, silent. The sounds of everyone passing by, their walking and talking and general noise-making, nothing. The world was on mute. And then as she looked up, I had this horrific flash, this vision of...she was not smiling. That she was saying a string of unintelligible words that began with, "Um, I don't know..." and each passing second was another punch to the gut. That I'd leave the table, my heart completely broken, failing at it once again.

But then that glimpse into my future was gone. And her head was up, like she was coming up for air out of the water. Her hair was partially hiding her face. But I could see enough. And she was smiling. And I smiled back. And she spoke. "It's about time."


The Irony Gods love me. And not in the good way.

Really? Wow. Okay.

Damn. I knew it was too good to be true. This couldn't have ended up a happy day and I was right.

"Well, that's just prime."

Ice Cold.

When your shot is so off you can't even make your free throws, it's going to be a long night.

Fortunately, where there's a D-Will, there's a way.

It ain't over yet.

Moncie Santos

You know, I've only ever blogged about my friends twice. Like, dedicated an entire post to them. The first was for Convo. The second one was for Raf. I think it's time to go for the hat trick.

Moncie, your blog wins. It just wins. Haha.

Your blog has done three things:

1. Kanye's Good Life is now your song. Haha. Bye-bye Akon and Plies.
2. I now wish Ara Mina was on every TV show. Like, seriously, she should be on EVERYTHING.
3. I now know that Megan Fox is not real.

Thank you.

I don't understand why you and I aren't speaking to each other.

Here It Is

This is kinda cool. I think.

Can't get too excited. Yet.

Don't fall for it. Yet.

So much trepidation and hesitation for something I've wanted my whole life. Or at least, my recent life. Haha.

What do you really want?

Wrestlemania 25

I was able to catch the (very) late telecast of Wrestlemania 25.

Damn it I wish The Rock would realize that though he's making millions in the movie biz, it's in wrestling that he makes millions (And millions!) of people happy.

The Money-in-the-Bank match was pretty awesome though. Kofi Kingston was bad ass, Christian shoulda won and Kane got punk'd by CM Punk.

The brother versus brother match between Jeff and Matt Hardy was the most unintentionally funny match of the night. I mean, Matt snaps, burns Jeff's home and kills Jeff's dog? Kinda lame ya know?

The Kid Rock performance was pretty cool and led to my brother busting out "My name is KIDDDDDDD!!!!" quite a few times after. Haha.

And damn, can we get Jericho to feud with Randy Orton for the title?

Oh and, this was Rey's first Wrestlemania since he main-evented back in '06? I remember that match. It's been three years already? Wow.

Triple H is Beowulf. No questions asked. King of Kings indeed.

Got Game

You know, when you get to play really well, it's unlike any feeling in the world.

Rainin' threes, grabbin' boards and droppin' dimes.

Getting stops and getting blocks.

It's amazing. Haha!

Nelly WAS on to something...

You know how in the Hot in Here Herre video, the roof does eventually catch on fire? That is soooo going to happen this sem. In either CTC 301 or 302 (my money is on 301). I am deathly afraid of passing out from the heat.

And speaking of male african-american hip-hop moguls, Kanye + NBA Playoffs commercials? It's about damn time. It's amazing.

And the captain! Derek Jeter I love you. (And Nick Swisher too.)

Oh yeah, Playoff predictions. Cavs in 7 against the Lakers. But I think Utah can oust LA early. Yeah, there, I said it. Deron Williams is a killer. Never forget that. Also, if they want it, they can take it. AK, Booz, Millsap and Okur can play pretty well if they want to. Ronnie can make a name for himself like Raja Bell did against the Lakers in the past. Oh and Adam Morrison + Sasha Vujacic < Kyle Korver. I really think the Jazz can take this. (And how sweet would it be for Jerry Sloan to eliminate Phil in the first round when Phil's team is favored?)

And damn KG, if you didn't change so much like milk out in the sun, I'd really feel bad for you. But the things you did to Calderon and the Blazers? C'mon dawg you're better than that. Man up and get better soon. You can be intense, but you don't have to be a dick. No one likes a bully.

Peace out, gotta get in a few buckets. Later.

I Miss You Ben Reilly

There's a picture of Ben over there, on the right of the screen. See it? That's a real hero right there. Born out of evil, left to die and eventually left to wander and wonder. But what did he do? He still went out as the greatest superhero ever.

Just three words to sum up what I want:


Wednesday, April 15, 2009


Nawala shooting ko! Gorram it. Just when school started. Argh. So annoying. For some reason, I haven't been enjoying basketball lately. And that's making me sad.

Role Models

Ang galing nung ending. Haha.

"...But it's got a pretty melody and I get to sing your name. That seems pretty cool."

Another thing to add to the list.

And I finally caught on. Haha.

Why do I screw everything up?

Friday, April 10, 2009

On Comicbooks...

On Dark Avengers...

Solid art. I've always been a fan of Mike Deodato. Even if I understand some of the criticisms and complaints about the book (that it's a rip off of Busiek's Thunderbolts, generic Bendis-bashing, etc.), I have to say, I really like it. Something about the way Bendis is writing Norman...I mean, I really like this version of Gobby. And I kinda like the dynamic between these so-called Avengers. It's interesting, what can I tell ya.

On Guardians of the Galaxy...

I thought I wouldn't enjoy the two issues focusing on just Phyla, Drax and Moondragon. But I did. I thought I'd miss the team and I did. But I was okay with it. Art's been subpar since Pelletier left but Wes Craig did an OK job on his arc. The writing was great, especially in issue 12, the banter between Maelstrom, Wendell and Drax. Can't wait for the WoK tie-ins! They've got like 12 team members now! Peter, Jack, Rocket, Groot, Bug, Mantis, Vance, Adam, Phyla, Gamora, Heather and Drax. Boy that's a strong group. Send them to Earth and you've got enough power (Adam, Phyla, Heather), bruisers (Drax, Groot, Gamora) and wild cards (Rocket, Mantis) to take on anybody.

On Nova...

Richard Rider, protector of the universe. It says something that this is the only comic I'm picking up ('sides Ultimate Spider-Man) focusing on a single hero. I love Nova and now that Andrea di Vito's on it, I don't think I'm dropping this book anytime soon.

On New Avengers...

I really need Luke to cut loose. Like really cut loose and kick ass. I know he does this on the regular, but I really would like to see a Luke Cage Avengers moment. Like, when we solidify his place as an Avenger, the moment where he does something worthy of the Avengers name. C'mon Luke! Also, can we get Stuart Immonen on the book already? I don't like Bachalo's style and Billy Tan is too scratchy.

On Captain Britain and MI13...

DRACU-FRAKKIN'-LA! Say no more! The baddies are here and it's going to take a helluva an effort to get them out of Britain and I'm sure reading about it is going to be something. Paul Cornell is a genius.

Castle Rocks

Beckett: You can't just say 'night?'
Castle: I'm a writer. 'Night' is boring. 'Until tomorrow' is more...hopeful.

Spot on. Man, Nathan Fillion is just pure awesome you know? I really like the banter between these two. The dialogue is great and the delivery even better. But for a show with Fillion on it, what else is new?

What If...?

...The Indiana Pacers did not get Danny Granger in the '05 draft?

That would be terrible. The '05-'06 team, and I use the word loosely, had Ron Artest/Peja Stojakovic, Jermaine O'Neal, Stephen Jackson, Jamaal Tinsley and Anthony Johnson. And Danny. And he played well that year and the Pacers made the playoffs for the last time as the Pacers veteran leaders imploded the following summer which in turn turned the Pacers, for all intents and purposes, into Granger's team. Yay. Had the Pacers not lucked out (remember, guys like Fran Vasquez, Channing Frye and Yaroslav Korolev were picked before him) and not found Danny still team-less by the time it was their turn at number 17, they coulda gotten one of the aforementioned busts or one of the players selected after Danny such as Gerald Green, Julius Hodge and Hakim Warrick (though Nate Robinson, Jarrett Jack, Francisco Garcia, David Lee and Monta Ellis were also still available, I would assume that Green, Hodge and Warrick woulda been picked because Granger and them are similar players.). This would've been another Freddie Jones scenario. Good guys at first with lots of potential but eventually not turn out well for Indy. Thank God.

...I did not go to Ateneo and taken my parents' offer of a larger allowance if I went to UP?

I assume a lot of things would've changed. And the more I think about it, my life would be totally different. So many of the people I know today would not be a part of my life, for better and worse. WOW. I'd probably be hanging out with the rest of the A-boys in UP and not know a good 90% of the people I know today. But bigger allowance means more comics. Haha. But still, the events that have played out over the past 3 years...wow. That's a Sliders episode if I ever saw one. Or at least, a knocked-on-the-head-put-into-a-coma-for-a-few-days story. I wonder...

...I had continued with basketball?

Among the greatest regrets I have in life, this stands out. I think this would've also drastically altered my life. I mean, I'd probably be a better player than I am today and have a totally different mindset about college and the future. Also, I think I'd be fitter. Haha. Wait, fitter's a word right? Moving on, I'd be a baller and all. I could've made the team even. Why are you laughing??

...I was not an A-Boy?

Yikes, let's not even go there. That's a Days-of-Future-Past type story.

...Oceanic Flight 815 never crashed on the island?

What if Desmond waited a day later to decide to frak things up and not push the button? What if another plane, maybe a smaller one carrying LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers would've crashed on the island. Or no, better yet, the plane should've been carrying the 2004 NBA All-Stars. Think about it. We'd lose Jack, Kate and Sawyer (and Hurley and Charlie and Sun) but we'd get LeBron T-Mac and Shaq and Kobe and KG and all on the island. You think Ben and the Others would ever mess with them? I think not! Though I think KG would've sided with them if it gave him a better chance at winning a title. He'd be Michael. Shaq would replace Locke (he'd be able to "run" again) and Kobe would be Kate because of all the legal stuff. Also, Ron Artest would be Sawyer. It would pretty much be a sausagefest though.

...Chad Murray (Made you think for a sec who that was no? Ha!) and Ben Mackenzie had their fates switched and they starred on the other's TV show?

Think about it. Nathan and Lucas would probably still be fighting to this day and Seth would've probably fallen in love with Ryan. Haha.

The Greatness of Fred

"Can I say something about destiny? Screw destiny! If this evil thing comes we'll fight it, and we'll keep fighting it until we whoop it. 'Cause destiny is just another word for inevitable and nothing's inevitable as long as you stand up, look it in the eye, and say 'You're evitable!'"

I so want to be Jack Bauer when I grow up.

Raf Raagas

Raf. Hi. I don't post enough?? I've got over 250+ posts! Haha. Last month, I set a new record for the most posts I've done in one month. You want me to come up with more useless material? You want me to devote more of my time to something as trivial and mundane as this journal?

I LOVE YOU, MAN. (Yes, a shameless plug for the movie. Okay, not really. Haven't seen it though. Yet.)

See there kids, this is what happens when you have a fan. You get appreciated. Haha.

Right now Raf, I got nothing. Haha.

The Scene Part 2

I really need my "I'm making the big gesture."+"You. It's always been you."+She Will Be Loved+It's-raining-but-I-don't-care-I'm-going-to-tell-you-that-I-love-you scene. Really.

The Scene

You know how I could get to be bad ass?? If a situation wherein I'd go, "Cue the music," in a very macho manner, ever came up. That would be so awesome!

Friday, April 3, 2009

I had a dream last night...

Oh wow that was epic. An evil senator (who apparently was caucasian) with a diabolical plan wants to execute this girl right? And I have to protect her and stop his nefarious plot. Sounds cool enough right? BUT THEN HE ENLISTED THE SERVICES OF THE SINESTRO CORPS. This just proves how much of a comicbook geek I am. Haha.

Oh and the girl? Yep, it was ____. And it felt really nice. Why does dream me get all the girls?


Ah Castle. My new favorite TV show. How I adore you.

Nathan Fillion + Stana Katic = My new favorite TV couple. They now join Penny and Desmond, Brooke and Lucas, Athena and Helo, Riggins and Layla and Jim and Pam. Honorable mention goes to Kevin and the girl he met in "Blood Drive."

The Battle Rifle From Halo 3

I played Halo 3 again today. I love the Battle Rifle. My God has there ever been a more perfect bullet-firing, assault rifle? (I qualify that because I realize that there are tons of fictional guns out there that are going to make me look stupid. But hear me out.)

The Battle Rifle has got zoom capabilities and a semi-auto rate of fire. That's all. And I love it. I mean, just use the damn thing, you'll love it, I guarantee it. It's good for close-up battles. Say you bust into a room and all of a sudden there are those little grunts in front of you. Whip out the Battle Rifle, strafe and keep a lead on your shot and boom, instant frags. Say there are armored Brutes waiting for you at the end of road. Scope up and aim for their little mouths, the only things without armor-plating. Boom, one shot, one kill. Shielded troops got you pinned down? Aim for the little holes and you got'em. No time to reload and there's a Brute about to tear you a new one right next to you? Melee the bastard and kick his ass. I've used this gun more often than any of the other weapons in the game (save for the Plasma Rifle). I think the guys at Bungie new how awesome the weapon was that's why they only gave it 144 shots. The one problem I have with this thing is that I use it too much hence I'm always scrounging for ammo. You can argue that the Assault Rifle can do everything I said the Battle Rifle could do minus the zoom and the semi-auto capabilities but then I'd just tell you that that was it. Those two things make this weapon so damn effective. One burst is all you need sometimes. The crosshairs on the Battle Rifle are much more accurate than the ones on the Assault Rifle and that makes all the difference. Trust me, if you have to go with one gun the whole game, it's the Battle Rifle. Master Chief is pleased.
