Atoms for Peace

this photo is not mine, it is from stereogum.com. i just borrowed it.
It's exactly 12:30 am and i can't sleep so I grabbed my headset plugged it to my ever trusted iDevice and starts to listen to Atoms for Peace, then while listening to them I suddenly got this urged and decided to write something about this so called "Super Band" and wonders why they were formed, What's their reasons and purpose in getting together. Is it for a cause? or just because they were bored of their stardom or just for the heck of it? and maybe they just want to challenge themselves and see if they will succeed. So I turned on my computer and do some fast research about this super band.

Atoms for peace, the group consists of Thom Yorke (Radio Head), Nigel Godrich (Radio Head producer), Michael Peter Balzary better known as Flea (Red Hot Chilli Peppers), Joey Waronker (Beck & REM) and Mauro Refosco (Forro in the dark). the band was formed in later part of 2009 and merely as backup band for Thom Yorke (Performing his solo album) and not until February of 2010. their music is categorized as Experimental Rock and they just released their first album "AMOK" last February 25, this year also they will have a world tour and it started this month till November.

The band according to Thom Yorke was formed merely because of their common love for the music of the Afrobeat and that their debut album was a product of getting together, getting wasted listening to Fela Kuti. On Radioheads website Thom Yorke officially named the band Atoms for Peace upon announcing their April 2010 US tour, And in March of 2010 Yorke tweeted "It has been decided that we called ourselves Atoms for Peace. Hope you like the name.. it seem bleedin' obvious".

And thus this super band was born.

Internet 101 (Things i noticed on the internet)

this image/photo is not mine and it's owned by eofdreams.com and hoping they don't mind me using this image. sorry guys! and thank you :D
This morning i woke up a bit nerdy and lazy, then i come up with this crazy idea of compiling some things that i've noticed while browsing the internet.

Here they are as to how i saw/read them. in random order of-course.

  • Internet 101:Person: Whoohoo! i have 1K friends now! 

    Friend of the person: Dude get out once in a while, you'll find that there's a real world out there.

    Famous friends who's friends with my friends are now my friends.

    Don't you just love the internet.


    This one was from me and it really happened to me.

    Friend in person: Dude help me i've been like living my life and probably gonna die single.

    Me (Who else do you think this is... duh!): My friend that's the reason why the computer and the internet was invented. 

    thanks to Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, Friendster and Pr0n sites.



    OHEMGEE! Snow in the Philippines!

    Dude get a life and start going out once in awhile.


    Theres more of this and i'll be posting them once I get bored again.

    Don't you just love the internet!


Ang trapik nga naman

(Image courtesy of www.gulfnews.com)
Don't know if this people (MMDA, LTO, LTFRB, PNP and DPWH) really blind or are just closing their eyes. I'TS THE PUBLIC UTILITY BUSSES AND JEEPNEYS FAULT!!!!

Even how many alternative efforts and billions of peso you guys will spend it will still end up NOTHING! yes we need them public transport but it's just too many of them, (and to be honest the drivers of all public utilities needs to be educated.). isama na pati mga KOLORUM.

Suggestion ng mga nakararami:

1. Provincial busses from the north should be till Balintawak or Camachile only.
2. Provincial busses from south should be till Magallanez only.
3. City busses should be number and color coded so that maiiwasan na ang KOLORUM. Also drivers and conductors should be on quota and salary basis (para di nag aagawan at na tambay sa estasyon na na-giging sanhi ng pag bagal ng usad ng trapiko)
4. Taxi's should also be color coded and drivers should be on quota and salary basis (para din maiiwasan na ang pangongontrata sa mga pasahero.)
5. This new FX or UV transport thingie is ok. From point of origin to end. (Bakit hindi ma implement to sa mga busses?.... )

Attention #MMDA  #DPWH  #LTO #LTFRB at #PNP pls naman po paki buksan lang sana ang inyong mga mata at wag mag bulag bulagan o ma silaw sa mga lagay/kotong/red tape/suhol (o kahit ano pa mang tawag dito) at isipin na lang muna natin ang pag kakaroon ng maayos na kakalsadahan. Lagi ninyong tatandaan, ang mabagal na pag daloy ng trapiko ay sya ding pag bagal ng ating pag unlad.

Pucha napaka simple lang neto.


I'm back!

I'm going to start blogging again (since i have this itch that wont stop and have to do something really quick), And i also know for a fact that i too have the rights to do this and i don't mind having bad criticism (Ingit lang kayo!). I want to express myself again by writing stuff that's inside of me and wanting not to waste them. and it all started out last night when i was reading some articles over the world wide web and then asked my self this, "Why not start blogging again?".

So I compiled 3 reasons on why i should do it again, and here it goes.

    1. I'm so bored that i need a diversion and the best diversion i thought was to go back writing something or rant about anything under the sun.

    2. Home sick, I miss the things i do back in Manila where i grew up and made name for myself (as if i'm famous and shit).

    3. Have to write and use my thick skull to do something right and to mark my existence in this awesome world.

This is the top 3 reasons why i would start this thing and also to make some noise about what i want the world to know, instead of keeping it inside my brain.

Ok! so thats it and this will be my first entry. Adios!
