The Chronicles of Riddickulous

Vin Diesel Stars as Richard RiddickPosted by Hello
I watched The Chronicles of Riddick last Tuesday. To be honest, I wasn't entertaind at all. I was expecting more from this movie, okay, so I wasn't expecting deep storyline here but it was just... cold. While I was quite impressed by the idea of the Necromonger monoliths, the effects were just too computerized for me, COLD. You feel like you're watching a video game. The Final Fantasy movie was more realistic in terms of effects and that too, I didn't like. Anyway, the good thing here is it got me fascinated on Pitch Black, Vin Diesel's character Richard Riddick's first adventure. And after watching it, I could say that I was more entertained with this than the sequel. Feh! Sequels. The only sequel better than the original film is still The Godfather 2. Hopefully, we could add Spiderman 2 with it. Anyway, Pitch Black had more interesting characters. They each have their own personalities, likable or not. Even Riddick. I just wish the moviehouse had a subtitle feature that you could turn on since you can't freakin' understand what Vin Diesel's saying!!! ..."It's been a while since I smelled Beautiful..." ?! Anyway, that's it. I must get back to work... sigh... another weekend coming.

Wild West

I just finished pencilling 30 pages of my manga to be released in the States early next year. I've been waiting for my Pentel brush pens from Japan, it should be arriving anytime soon, tomorrow hopefully so I can start inking everything. This will be a busy week for me... the first pages are very important in the production, setting the mood and the image of the manga. It was supposed to be finished yesterday, but since the brushes aren't here yet, I had to delay a little. I do hope the delay is worth it after finishing these pages... only 120 more pages to go and we're set. Heh!
I've been watching Old West themed movies lately, bought Tombstone on DVD and some Clint Eastwood films to inspire me. Also, whenever I have the time, I play Red Dead Revolver on the PS2 from Rockstar Games. I've been fascinated with the Colt Revolver ever since I started doing this. I'd like to own one someday, displayed in an ornate wooden case with golden bullets. That'd be the pride and joy of my collection, I bet.
Well, off to the sunset for me... Yee-Haw!

i don't think ur hand is dangerous.... i think it's lame...
just an opinion"

In my defense, anonymous...

1.) To each his own.
2.) I consider what you call NEW music bland and uninspired.
3.) Deep? The subhead reads... SIMPLE thoughts... blah blah.
4.) About my hand being dangerous, I AM an illustrator. Hence, the title.

... oh, and 5... fuck off, Anonymous!

The Incredible Shrek

This Shrek will definitely make the kids shriek in horrorPosted by Hello
Now, this is scary. I think this image is suggesting that Spiderman 2 can never beat Shrek 2 in the box office. Hehehe!

Definitely on my Xmas List...

The Sony Ericsson K700 has got to be the best-looking SE phone right now. In my opinion, a fusion of Nokia, Motorola and SE design elementsPosted by Hello
It would be unfair not to give the K700 a chance against the PSP... I mean... look at it! Such beauty!

More on the PSP

drool... drool... Posted by Hello

On the outside, it looks sleek and sturdy. The screen is 16:9 ratio TFT LCD wide screen, able to display 16 million or so colors in 480 x 272 resolution.
Apparently, this handheld's processor is as fast as that on the PS2! And will be able to handle PS2-quality graphics! This will definitely give Nintendo's coming handheld, DS (Dual Screen) a run for its money!

Tiny Mean Machine

Just looking at it makes my gaming hand itchPosted by Hello


I haven't been updating my blog lately. I've been keeping myself busy with No Man's Land, my manga. But I can't say that's ALL I'm doing. Of course, we can't work straight hours on just one thing. There's watching tv, playing games, going to the mall, watching a movie, a dvd, and my favorite, sleeping! Hopefully though, I could be fast enough to meet my June 15 deadline. Almost there... riiight.
I could say I'm pretty much satisfied with the T610 I have right now. It's small and decent looking. I can't say this is the phone that'll stay for long, after all, the Sony Ericsson K700 is coming late this year so I'll probably get that one once it's released. Hehehe!
But the question is... what do I get first?! the Sony PSP (Playstation Portable) or the K700... Hmm... something to ponder. I'll have to meditate... I still have half a year to make up my mind. Heh!

"Sir, are you classified as human?"
"Negative. I am a meat popsicle!"

Phone Whore

The SE T610 Volcanic RedPosted by Hello

I just got a new phone yesterday, a Sony Ericsson T610. It's actually a lower model from my Smartphone in terms of features but lately, I haven't cared about what the phone CAN do but more on it's primary functions which is to call and send messages. NOw, let's review the phones I had over the years...
1: Nokia 909 - after the rise and fall of the pagers (I used to have a Motorola MemoJazz, that small wonder), I finally convinced my parents to buy me a cellphone, my point was if I get kidnapped, the pager won't do any good. Hehehe! Apparently, that may have changed their minds.
2: Nokia 5110 - now, I got mine for P10K. It was yellow and at that time, was considered small. The first time I had text messaging, Sherwin and I just texted until morning. Now, I think the 5110 is being given for free. Hehehe! Just kidding.
3: Nokia 3310 - My first 3310, after a few weeks had to be fixed (Contact Service), so I went to Greenhills to have it fixed, only to learn that it can't. So the store offered to buy the unit from me... with the money I have, I settled for...
4: Nokia 3210 - yes, a downgrade. Then I came back to...
5: Nokia 3310
6: Nokia 6210 - The best phone I had until number 9.
7: Nokia 5510 - MP3s are cool but it's aesthetics were really blah!
8: Nokia 8310 - It's cute. Plus, the song that came with the ad got us hooked.
9: Sony Ericsson T68m - my first colored phone and non-nokia unit.
10: Nokia 3530 - Don't ask me.
11: Nokia 3650 - Although it's bulky, its features were tops!
12: Smart Amazing Phone (aka HTC Tanager)- For me, the most feature-packed phone for it's price. MP3s, MPGs, WMP, VGA Camera, super-personalization, PC syncronization, Windows Mobile OS. You can even read E-books, compose Word documents, view powerpoint presentations, use excel, and of course, play games. But why change? So much to do, so little time...
13: Sony Ericsson T610 - Small and practical. Can do a mobile phone's primary functions well. And it looks darn good!

A Short One

I just finished reading Dan Brown's The Da Vinci Code. Although for me, the fiction, the story of Robert Langdon, was better in Angels and Demons, the truth you'll learn from this book is eye-opening indeed. The secrets of the Church has always fascinated me and these books only fueled that interest.
I've been quite busy with the manga I'm doing for an American book firm. Looks like my dreams will soon be realized. It's about time. Hehe!
