Firefly Episode 4: Shindig

I just finished watching the fourth episode of Firefly, Shindig. This is all I gotta say about that;

The Firely Complete Season DVD: P 1925
Movie Ticket to Serenity: P 110
The look on Kaylee when she attended the ball in that dress: Priceless

JOSS WHEDON's comments on this: "...The thing that blew me away the most in this was Jewel [Kaylee] in her big old dress, which was just about the cutest thing I’d seen in a long time. The way she plays it, she is just so adorable. It’s happened with all of them, but it was a moment for me when I said, “Oh, okay, she’s a star, too.” And, hey, floating chandelier - what more could you ask for?..."

Imelda Marcos' US$10-M worth of gems may be auctioned in RP

"FORMER First Lady Imelda Marcos' vast collection of shoes and gowns and eye-popping jewels worth 10 million dollars could soon be auctioned off..."
The article didn't really specify that the auction would be held here in the Philippines.

But, it made me think though (i know, i know, that's a real stretch for me), but am I correct in assuming that maybe, the only persons who could afford these are the new breed of corrupt people? The ones who are looting the country now?

So, now, follow me here.... This is symbolic to the passing of the mantle from the old generation to the new generation.

Robot claims 'treasure island' booty

A robotic treasure hunter has laid claim to the find of the century, on the very archipelago that inspired the novel Robinson Crusoe....
By some estimates the haul would include 800 barrels of gold ingots, silver pieces, gems and other riches worth up to $10 billion. Naturally, the promise of such fabulous wealth has attracted scores or treasure hunters to the island in the past..."
Just overnight, that island would be teeming with scanvengers, I tell you. Wouldn't this also spark renewed interest on that fabled Yamashita treasure said to be buried here in the Philippines.

Maybe GMA would pass an executive order proclaiming that any treasure found in the Philippines should be given to her first for "safekeeping" or something like that. You know, for national interest...

Joss Whedon Interview about Firefly and Serenity

Excerpt:
"Q[Russell]: I'm sorry -- 'Serenity' is the one we'd want to talk about.

A.[Whedon]: I mean, of course, some people are thinking of both…. But if I was going to pitch 'Serenity,' I'd say it's a space adventure that involves the lowliest of people in the most mundane of circumstances getting caught up in something giant and epic -- without lasers, aliens, or force-fields to protect them...."
Real cool interview of Joss Whedon about Firefly, and Serenity. It has even a couple of sprinklings of Buffy and Angel, his earlier stuff.

And so it begins...

"... a Marine general and his deputy yesterday disobeyed an order by President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo banning administration and military officials from congressional hearings and were swiftly sacked....
How does this apply to the common good of our country again? GMA's order, I mean. I kind of got lost here... I'm not really that smart...

Anyone?

I just found out God's name!

And it's JOSS WHEDON! Well, not really. But I'm pretty much sure JOSS is close to being a god.

Firefly is just one hell of an awesome show. I've heard people swear by it but not until now have I seen the light. This is how I would picture Han Solo and Chewie if they didn't join the rebellion.

Firefly is just that sweet.

Mal, Zoe, Wash, Inara, Jayne, Kaylee, Simon, River, and Shepherd Book. Firefly truly rocks. In just an hour or so in the first episode and I'm hooked. This is one hell of a show and I tell you, I'll be burning the midnight phosphors going thru all the episodes.

Well, I have to you know. Serenity, the movie based on this series is just around the corner!

Why men die first

Here's some from the site...

If you work too hard, there's never any time for her;
If you don't work enough, you're a good-for-nothing bum.

If you try to keep yourself in shape, you're vain;
If you don't, you're a slob.

If you buy her flowers, you're after something;
If you don't, you're not thoughtful.

Hack A Day

hack a day serves up a fresh hack each day, every day from around the web and a special how-to hack each week.
Real cool site. It's got projects like how to build a telephone recording circuit from an old modem, retractable wolverine claws, or even your own generator!

Alas! Still no Friendster hacks here boys and girls.

Google Hacks, Friendster Hacks, Yahoo Hacks, and all those other hacks

Real cool Google hacks. Not all of them are available though. And some would require knowledge of Google's API.

Oh and to all those people who think there are tried and true easy ways to hack into those email sites (Hotmail, Yahoo, Gmail, etc.) or those social networks (Orkut, MySpace, Friendster, etc.). Mozy on to this site. Read all the comments to get a general idea.

Yup. You guessed it. There is none available. Isn't it pathetic to see all those people begging? I even saw two or three from the Philippines. Thar was a time when the best way to find out if your hunch or paranoia is correct is to ask the person directly. Now, it's thru hacking the email or website.

Pitiful.

Happy Birthday Google


Thanks for everything!

Does Han Know about this?

More importantly, does Budjette and Mark know about this?!

"For all the talk about Internet TV, it's actually not so easy to watch a major network program on your own computer - especially one that's on the (bigger) small screen right now. But here's one you can watch: the new fall season premiere of Everybody Hates Chris, a lightly fictional take on Chris Rock's anxiety-ridden junior high school days. It first ran last Thursday on UPN, and for the next four days you can watch the entire first episode through Google Video..."
Well, this is a start of a new era. And why am i not surprised it's by Google?

The Rapture Index

You could say the Rapture index is a Dow Jones Industrial Average of end time activity, but I think it would be better if you viewed it as prophetic speedometer. The higher the number, the faster we're moving towards the occurrence of pre-tribulation rapture.

Rapture Index of 85 and Below: Slow prophetic activity
Rapture Index of 85 to 110: Moderate prophetic activity
Rapture Index of 110 to 145: Heavy prophetic activity
Rapture Index above 145: Fasten your seat belts
I don't even know what a rapture is? Is it one of those dinosaur thingys?

Current index is 161. So that's like the "fasten your seat belts" mode. Anyway, i remember the tips;

1. don't move, it's vision is based on movement;
2. if you saw part two, then move it's vision isn't based on movement.
Oh wait... that's the T-rex...

WEATHER WARS


Scott Stevens was the weatherman for KTV6 on Pocatello Idaho for nine years. He quit his job to pursue his belief that the Japanese Mafia, popularly known as the YAKUZA, were responsible for Hurricane Katrina.

Ok, let me repeat that, he quit his job to pursue his theory that the Yakuza created Hurrican Katrina.

Did I lose you? Ok, again... Hurricane Katrina was created by the Yakuza.

PINOY BOOK REVIEWS

"Pinoy Book Reviews is a local-based electronic magazine dedicated to Filipino book lovers. The site provides reviews, commentaries and feature articles about local and foreign books, magazines and graphic novels..."
Although dedicated to Filipino book lovers, it doesn't mean you have to be filipino to read the review or even submit one. I did.

I meant I read a review.

Oh and also submitted one.

A review, I mean.

ummm... I'm filipino...

ennnngggg.....what was my point?

The Cynic's Sanctuary

Gonzales says nothing, gets cited for contempt

"Senator Joker Arroyo, chair of the panel, said that because the national security adviser had "refused to answer questions which are relevant and material to the matter under inquiry, the committee without any objection hereby cites Gonzales in contempt and orders his detention until he answers the questions asked."...


Well, wouldn't the guy have the right to remain silent? Anyone of these SENATORS know of that little known right? I didn't know that the right to avoid irritation due to silence is greater than the right to remain silent...

F u t u r e M e . o r g

Create an email to be sent to yourself in the future.

Future being anything from tomorrow (cool tool for reminders) to five to ten years from now (cool tool to send to that stranger you have become) or anypoint in the future (assuming we still use email as a means of communication).

Ever think of where you'll be or what you've become five years or so from now? Why not send an email to yourself and tell your future self of what you think you have become. Or even remind your future self of things you think of things you don't ever want to forget.

Maybe five years from now, some (if not most) things you hold dear and true now would have been forgotten or be trivial by then.

Here's a cool sample of someone's futuremail:

Hi Gary. I'm writing this on a Sunday evening. I have tomorrow off so I can go to Josh's 3rd guitar concert tomorrow. I sent this e-mail 30 yrs into the future. What happened 30 yrs ago? Lets see, 1975. I was in high school, a sophmore, 1st year driving, on the track team. I belive I went to Dr T's field trip around this time and ate snails and crepee. Dosen't seem like 30 yrs.
Well, back to the present. Josh is a freshman, i work as a feeder driver. My life is pretty good, but I don't have faith in it remaining good. We live in bad political times with very poor grade leaders. I have been thinking of running for Congress, but must admit that that idea is fading. I am worried about my health, in particular my heart. I quit the cigars about 3 months ago in an effort to improve my health.
I love my home and property, my job and my son. I really like my truck, a 2004 chevy silverado. Boy does she have power!!!
Well, now my questions. How many grandkids do I have, and what does Josh do? Did I build my garage? When did I retire? Did I get re-married? Do I still live in the mountains, or did Josh stick me in an old age home (ha-Ha).
Seriously, am I even reading this, or did I die years earlier?
I feel like I will read this,, and I will be doing so from a pretty happy life.
Well Take care Gary
(and don't change your e-mail address)

Google Fight

Google Fight is so addictive. The premise is that you put in a keywords (a person, place or thing, whatever you can think off) and fight it off with another keyword. The keyword with the most number of results returned by Google wins!

I tried fighting GMA 7 against ABS-CBN (the two rival television networks here in the Philippines) and this is what I got...
Try other keywords like Batman against Superman, Wine against Beer, or the age old question, Michael Jackson against Catholic Priest

Notes On The PhD Degree

"A Doctor of Philosophy degree, abbreviated Ph.D., is the highest academic degree anyone can earn. Because earning a Ph.D. requires extended study and intense intellectual effort, less than one percent of the population attains the degree. Society shows respect for a person who holds a Ph.D. by addressing them with the title ``Doctor''.

To earn a Ph.D., one must accomplish two things. First, one must master a specific subject completely. Second, one must extend the body of knowledge about that subject...
One of my frustrations is not finishing college. I had dreams before of getting a Masters. Well at my age, I jsut settle on ticking off that "Some College" box in most forms.

Anyway, here's a real brief but cool primer about a PhD Degree...

Maybe, I'll just legally change my first name to "Doctor"

Pope bans homosexuals from ordination as priests

"Pope Benedict XVI has given his approval to a new Vatican policy document that bans men with homosexual tendencies from being ordained as priests, reports Catholic World News.

The policy statement is a direct result of the pope's concern about the pedophilia scandal in the church – especially in the U.S..."
I'm a Roman Catholic but I'm reserving my comments to myself lest my fellow bethren label me a heretic and an unbeliever.

Oh what the heck... Good call but good luck enforcing it.

Like I always say, I never let the Church interfere with my faith...

19 September 2005

Would you believe it took 37 years?

It's funny how in just a ten minute span, I learned the following things:

1. When craving for a cigarette, it's better to check your bag first than go through the ashtray for a long stub

2. Before raiding the fridge for food, preparing it, and microwaving it, it's better to check the dinner table first.

3. The Windows startup sound can be jarring. Check the speaker volume first. Specially if you're going to the kitchen to raid the fridge.

4. Long burned out stubs do not a craving stave.

5. It's better to make a hot cup of coffee than curse the cold one your drinking.

6. Do not turn on any of your IM programs if you're planning to do a report. You may end up postponing doing it and rushing to finish it at 12 noon for submission at 2pm.

7. Microwaving cold coffee is not the same as making a new hot cup but it takes the same time to do both.

8. Worceshtershire sauce in spaghetti does give it a distinct taste. Just don't overdo it.

9. The time it takes to clean up the mess you make in the kitchen preparing food is five times as long as it took you to eat it. This just goes over the ten minute mark but I like the number ten. It has more ooomph to it.

10. Oh and do not blog about things you learned in ten minutes at 12 noon when you have to do a report at 2pm. This one doesn't really count, but it does fit in...

Can This Black Box See Into the Future?

"...For during the course of the experiment, the Eggs have 'sensed' a whole series of major world events as they were happening, from the Nato bombing of Yugoslavia to the Kursk submarine tragedy to America's hung election of 2000.

The Eggs also regularly detect huge global celebrations, such as New Year's Eve.

But the project threw up its greatest enigma on September 11, 2001.

As the world stood still and watched the horror of the terrorist attacks unfold across New York, something strange was happening to the Eggs.

Not only had they registered the attacks as they actually happened, but the characteristic shift in the pattern of numbers had begun four hours before the two planes even hit the Twin Towers.

They had, it appeared, detected that an event of historic importance was about to take place before the terrorists had even boarded their fateful flights. The implications, not least for the West's security services who constantly monitor electronic 'chatter', are clearly enormous...."
This is a real long read but it's very interesting. It starts off a bit slow but by the middle, the article gets really intriguing. Wonder if we can view the EGG results online in real time....

A flying dragon sighted in China. Why am I not surprised? If it was seen here in the Philippines, it would have been a flying voter from the last election... hehehehe... *uhurm*... *snicker* *snicker*

Friendster Schmendster




I've had a Friendster account since October of 2003. And frankly, I'm not really into it. I mean, I only have like 89 friends logged on. That's pathetic in Philippine Friendster standards. Here in the Philippines, it's a gauge on how one person is worth the popularity of the person.

But actually, I think it's a resume' with tons of referrals.

Anyway, I wonder who would want to add this guy to their list of friends?

You know... he's the movie trailer voice guy

"...Don LaFontaine (born in Duluth, Minnesota on August 26, 1940) is a famous voice-over actor. His deep voice has been used in over 4000 movie trailers and many more television commercials and network promos (notably on the FOX Network).

Don LaFontaine, nicknamed 'The King of the Movie Trailers' and 'The VoG (Voice of God)', is credited with creating the modern movie trailer. He is also responsible for having created many of the movie trailer cliche's, such as 'In a world where...,' 'A one-man army...,' or 'From the bedroom to the boardroom....
'"


Here's an interview of the guy.
"EXCERPT: Thanks for taking the time to chat with us, Don. I guess I'd like to start with the question I'm sure is on everyone's mind: What would you do if you were TRAPPED IN A WORLD BEFORE TIME, WHERE EVERYTHING YOU THOUGHT WAS TRUE IS A LIE, AND THE ONLY PERSON YOU CAN TRUST IS YOURSELF?

[laughs] ...Try and survive, knowing only one man can save me..."

Well, now I wonder if he gets to watch all those movies he's ever voiced over and does he have a copy of each?

One night in La Salle

"...My first thought was to wonder if I hadn't studied in the wrong school. La Salle has been far more consistent with its moral principles. Ateneo discovers righteous anger only with tyrants it doesn't like. Maybe being a 'Brother' gives a sharper sense of right and wrong than being a 'Father.' Maybe, I am rooting for the wrong basketball team..."
