Living Dirty Like a Bachelor

Eversince I got my Smart Bro unlimited internet, I haven't done much housekeeping.

I haven't washed the dishes for almost 2 weeks. The TV console is full of dust. Some trash litter the floor. Dirty clothes are on the railing and on the chairs. Computer peripherals and cable hog the table that is pulled close to the bed (so I can surf the net and then fall asleep while or after doing that).

The thing is, I kinda like it. It's like living like a straight dirty bachelor.

Maybe I'm straight after all...

Leaving Friendster

Friendster is barely surviving.

About a year ago, majority of my family and high school friends were still in friendster. I still have friendster bookmarked in my laptop.

My family discovered facebook and the joys of farmville. My high school classmates and friends somehow migrated to facebook. I reformatted my computer several times and no longer included friendster in my bookmarks.

A social networking site works only if majority of the people you know are there. It also relies on the number of its users and how often they visit and update the site. Friendster lost these.

I am now a happy facebook user and very rarely visit friendster (I think I visited friendster only today after a few months).

Friendster will die, sooner or later.

What a Shocker!!!

Really, what a shocker! My eyes have been opened.

I Know Him so Well

Below is a video of I Know Him so Well as sung by Elaine Paige and Barbra Dickson:

Wonderful song

Wonderful voices

Terrible hair

Terrible clothes (looks like they appear in Dynasty)

Terrible setting (they're in a disco? or just a home with neon lights? and in those clothes?)

So 80s. It's better to just close your eyes and listen rather than watch and find everything you see funny.

Clash of the Titans

Yesterday, I watched Clash of the Titans in Greenbelt 3 with my father. (He went to Manila with me last Saturday night so he can watch Clash of the Titans in 3d).

I didn't have high expectations for this movie and yet I still came away disappointed. The movie is not bad but I think other epic movies have done far far better than this.

For one, the 3D effect are so few that I believe it wouldn't have made a difference had I watched it in regular 2D. (Actually, I would be less disappointed with the movie if I watched in regular 2D since I wouldn't be expecting Avatar-like 3D. (Like most movies of large budget released after Avatar, I think Clash of the Titans added some 3D scenes to their regularly filmed movies so it can cheat customers out of more bucks).

Another thing, watching the movie makes me think that this is a ripoff of Lord of the Rings in many ways. The walk from Argos to the three witches seems like the long journey from the Rivendell to Mordor; the scense of stone-faced people riding the scorpion things are very much like the big-elephant riding mercenaries of the Battle of Gondor. (Lord of the Rings, being a great movie, ruined all subsequent epic movies).

Sam Worthington - first thought: was he cast in this movie because of his acting chops in front of a greenscreen in Avatar? Performance-wise, couldn't judge since my thought all along the movie was he was hired because of his "experience" in front of a greenscreen.

Gemma Atterton - pretty lady. Why does she have to wear a dirty (gray) mop over her one-shouldered dress?

Tony Hoult (the guy who played Eusebios) - he's kinda cute. I was wondering why he was in the movie - seems out of place. Was he put there because he is a boylet of the director/casting director/producer?

Over-all, I was disappointed. This should be watched only in 2D.

Turning 30 Next Year

I just turned 29 last March 25th. Next year I'll be turning 30 and am wondering if I've done anything worthwhile in my life.

Holy week reflection, Jesus began His ministry when he was 30th and died on his 33rd year yet he made such an impact on the world.

Hopefully, it's not too late to start making an impact.
