A simple rendition of the love song classic originally sung by Michael Ruff (who I thought was Side A from the start) and is still popular in the country despite the decades of pop/rap/rock music that it has been sharing the airwaves with.

For me, the song has such an effortless melody torn between romantic and melancholy that it is a perfect soundtrack for bittersweet lovers.

Almost like a lullaby, this arrangement was made by my piano teacher for another student for a recital. It is so simple that it is supposed to be played with loving caresses like there's something going to happen later that night with you and the instrument. I don't know if I succeeded in such a task but since I managed to record it in one take, it seemed suited for public consumption.

As for those asking, well, yes, there is a music sheet for this exact arrangement, however, I still need to ask the permission of the one who actually made it and add to that that I don't have a soft copy, I doubt that it is coming up anytime soon. I will look for the chords used for this specific piece and maybe upload it soon. Stay in love.. ;)

Trust Twitter to bring in the freshest of all news even before international and local programs manage to pick them up. I just recently read that The WB is moving forward with the once phenomenal TV show 'reboot'. And that Joss Whedon, Buffy's creator, mentor, snappy dialogue God is NOT a part of it.

So that means, a new movie with different cast, storyline and unjoss-like dialogue. Just with the same name. Certainly not the Buffy we have grown with and love.

The idea is so ridiculous that I would have laughed so hard if the news isn't true. But it is. And that someone else will be writing the script. Probably someone who knows nothing about the world Joss Whedon has created.

Buffy the Vampire Slayer (1997-2003), the hit TV show with a massive loyal cult-like following has garnered modest ratings, rave reviews and countless tie-in products including a spin-off show back in its day. It has spawned worldwide attention with its remarkable storyline, relate-able characters and witty dialogue, even landing in Time Magazine's 100 Best TV Shows of All Time and winning 3 Emmys. It is a game-changer for shows in the late 90's and has influenced the direction of other series like Charmed and Roswell.

It originally made Vampires look cool to the teenage population, and now that the fad is barging back, this reboot movie is obviously a money-making ticket to jump in the middle of the undead hysteria.

See, I have spent a tremendous amount of time, far too many than what is considered healthy, watching and obsessing over this particular TV show. I have almost all of the episode titles, bad guy of the season and various quotes memorized. I have all the songs from the musical episode "Once More With Feeling" burned in a CD. And mind you, that was the time before anyone can watch the latest episode online or download all of the seasons and songs in a computer. I had to deal with RPN9 and, later, Studio 23's 2-season late airings. Aside from Harry Potter, this is my childhood, err, teenage-hood. Undeniably geeky period in my life, yes I agree, but it's still part of my past and it's horrific to find out that they will patch all those nerdy memories with a movie flick that would most likely fail even before it shows up in the big screen.

Back to Joss Whedon, here's his reaction to the surprising news. (Joss's email to Kristin of E!)
Kristin, I'm glad you asked for my thoughts on the announcement of Buffy the cinema film.  This is a sad, sad reflection on our times, when people must feed off the carcasses of beloved stories from their youths—just because they can't think of an original idea of their own, like I did with my Avengers idea that I made up myself.
Obviously I have strong, mixed emotions about something like this. My first reaction upon hearing who was writing it was, "Whit Stillman AND Wes Anderson?  This is gonna be the most sardonically adorable movie EVER."  Apparently I was misinformed. Then I thought, "I'll make a mint!  This is worth more than all my Toy Story residuals combined!" Apparently I am seldom informed of anything. And possibly a little slow. But seriously, are vampires even popular any more?
I always hoped that Buffy would live on even after my death.  But, you know, AFTER.  I don't love the idea of my creation in other hands, but I'm also well aware that many more hands than mine went into making that show what it was. And there is no legal grounds for doing anything other than sighing audibly. I can't wish people who are passionate about my little myth ill. I can, however, take this time to announce that I'm making a Batman movie.  Because there's a franchise that truly needs updating. So look for The Dark Knight Rises Way Earlier Than That Other One And Also More Cheaply And In Toronto, rebooting into a theater near you.
Leave me to my pain!  Sincerely, Joss Whedon. 

The cast of BtVS with creator Joss Whedon
Just when you thought you could not admire him more, he responds to the annihilation of his life's work with eloquence, dignity and humor. The man is just brilliant.

Twitter is now all abuzz with horror and speculation on the aforementioned news. There are some funny tweets in there but here is my favorite:
@sophia537: *cries even harder* they ALREADY made a Buffy movie without Joss Whedon and it was SH*T! Those vampire better not f*cking SPARKLE!!!
(Hence the post title.) 

If that ever happens, it will be official. There is no hope left for mankind.

One site caught my eye last night when I was searching the net for a proof that Darren Criss really is half-Filipino. (Yes, I admit, how pathetically groupie of me.) Anyway, it's a post on basically asking the question on why Darren Criss (Kurt's openly gay new friend, Blaine) was picked up to be a regular on the hit-TV series Glee, while Charice (foreign exchange student Sunshine Corazon) was not.

It's no secret that Glee is now one of the most popular and powerful shows in TV that even aging pop stars and Hollywood actresses such as Britney Spears and Gweneth Paltrow did not turn down the chance to guest star on the show to boost their otherwise lackluster present careers. One guest starring role, even for just a single episode, can transform an unknown artist to an internationally famous idol. Whether this trend will continue in the years to come or not, one can only guess, but as of this moment, let's just say almost everyone is in agreement that Glee is indeed a fast-forward track to stardom.

Enter Charice and Darren Criss. Both have guest starred for at least an episode and has garnered rave reviews for their respective performances and thousands of iTunes downloads for the songs that they have covered. Now, lately, it has been confirmed that Darren Criss has indeed been signed up as a regular cast of Glee for the rest of Season 2 and even Season 3. Which made a few wonder, including this site, what exactly does he have that she doesn't?


Read the comments below the article and be prepared for a barrage of Argumentum Ad Hominems that will bewilder even the people who know just the most basic of logic and debate strategies.(Just saying.)

Going back to the point, here are MY personal views on the matter: (Hold the flames, Charice fans. Read, digest and meditate before you spew.)

5. Commendable Acting Skill
If you have read the comments on the site above, you may have read a heated debate on the direct proportionality of acting prowess to an actor's native language. Which I honestly think is crap, but even if Charice did not perform as well on Glee because she did not grow up speaking English as primary means of communication, one could not deny the fact that Darren Criss did study Theater Arts in college, starred in a variety of productions, TV guestings and thus have more experience in acting. Charice may develop her acting chops in the future, but as of today, she still needs more work.

4. Great On-Screen Chemistry the Writers Can Expand With
Sunshine Corazon may be an interesting character as the audience gets to see Rachel Berry come to grips with the unbelievable fact that someone can actually sing just as good or maybe even better than her. The infamous Telephone bathroom scene will remain as one of the most amusing scenes of Season 2. However, Blaine is turning out to be an important individual in Kurt's life and can be a catalyst for more character development and future storylines. Plus, let's not deny the fact that Ryan Murphy wants to keep the femme fatale spotlight on his dearest Lea Michelle.

3. A Penis
Yes, a penis, and there is nothing Charice can do about that unless she goes to her godmother Vicky Belo for a consultation. The majority of Glee viewers are female, most likely to swoon and melt into a puddle by Darren Criss' charm than by Charice's high notes, giving Glee more appeal to the sex demographic that it is  most likely after. And yes, let's admit it, most females see Darren Criss as sex appeal on legs.

2. Age-Bracket-Perfect, Non-Rabid Fans
This actually goes with item number 3, Mr. Penis. Oprah, David Foster, Ellen DeGeneres, Celine Dion or whoever the heck endorsed our pop princess may compliment all they want, but the fact of the matter is, Charice is still not as popular to the consumer age-bracket that she should be popular in. Aside from Filipinos, OFWs, middle-aged moms who see her as a great role model for their kids and also some middle aged men (I shudder at the implication) she isn't really as well-known to the Bieber-loving Tween/Teen community that she should be breaking into by now. Darren Criss, however, whose admittedly small but growing fan base, starting from Starkid's viral video play "A Very Potter Musical" to new fans he gathered from Glee, are precisely the kind of viewers a show like Glee is targeting. Business is business. Who can give them better ratings and drag in new audiences will win the match.

1. Being Talented in Almost Every Aspect of Music and Theater
Here's what I've been saying all along originating form the first post I did saying that I am waiting for Charice to explore and exert more effort to expand her musicality for she is still not the Perfect Music Diva everyone of her rabid fans is so keen on insisting that she is. There is still, and always, going to be room for improvement. I'm not saying that Darren Criss is the epitome of music artistry but he does write, compose, plays (the violin, piano, guitar and drums) and performs his OWN songs. I for one is less awed by singers who just mimics another's voice and style. I think people nowadays appreciate raw, jack-of-all-trades talent more than the usual can-sing-high-notes routine. Charice surely has a great voice but it would be better for her to tap into other forms of artistry and not be caged into this bubble way behind its time.

Whether Charice will follow Darren's contract signing in the months to come or will she even need it at all, (She might actually explode into Superstardom without Glee, who knows?) I don't really care, but here are some of the things I am hoping for:

1. That the Filipino fan base of Charice stop harassing everyone who doesn't like her as an artist. We all have our tastes. Please respect. The fact that Charice is a Filipino does not mean that it's MANDATORY that ALL Filipinos be a fan of her. That is just absolutely ridiculous.
2. If you are going to comment on this post, please google first Argumentum Ad Hominem before typing. Avoid it. Never ever again use it especially on online debates. It just makes you look stupid. And yes, comments like "You're just jealous!", "You can't sing as good as she does!" etc. etc. is part of that fallacy.

If you have made it until the end of this article, I thank and admire you. I've just realized that this is one freakishly long post. I apologize for any headache or eye strain reading this might have caused you. May God bless the Philippines. And Glee. Here's a toast for the fans.

This is it. The penultimate installment of the worldwide phenomenon and the series of a generation. It is not only a tremendously popular franchise but also stood as the childhood companion of millions all over the globe. So after more than a decade of magic and sorcery, we have finally come to the beginning of the end.

And it couldn't have been better. I just knew it was going to be a good movie, even great. And I was not disappointed.

"These are dark times, there is no denying."

From the very first line, I knew this was not the usual child-oriented movie the public has always affiliated Harry Potter with. Gone were the friendly halls of Hogwarts and fluffy snow owls in the Great Hall. In fact, we didn't even see a shadow of Hogwarts, just spectacular mountainside views that could serve as an ad for British Tourism.

Watching the trio of Harry, Hermione and Ron grow throughout these years, it's amazing to see how far they've come. Hermione (Emma Watson), from a stuck-up, by-the-books nerd has transformed into an intelligent and capable wizard who the two will most likely be lost without. I particularly applaud this heartfelt scene in the beginning where she was shown to have erased herself from her parents' memories as a precautionary measure against Voldemort's possible advances against those that she loves.

Rupert Grint portrayal of Ron is as seamless as ever. Not only was he responsible for most of the comic reliefs of the film, of all the films actually, he was successful in showing the depth of his character; Ron's strength, courage and his love for his friends. When I was reading the book, I was so moved with the Horcruxe scene with the images of locket Harry and locket Hermione locking their lips together to the jealousy and anger of a bewildered Ron. Amazingly, the movie version did not disappoint.

Geek Mode: Although I loved the precise and hauntingly beautiful recreation of the scene, I noticed that they left out Harry's line when he said to Ron, and I quote: 

"She's like my sister," he went on. "I love her like a sister and I reckon she feels the same way about me. It's always been like that. I thought you knew." 

Reading the book, it is absolutely positive that Hermione and Ron will end up with each other, but with the movies, there are more Harry and Hermione slightly romantic scenes than I am  comfortable with. Enter the movie-only wilderness dance between the two in the absence of Ron. I think David Yates is a H/Hr shipper.

Brilliant character development aside (Bellatrix and Voldemort were portrayed perfectly by the way), there are loads for those who just want to watch the movie for the cinematic thrills. Being a self-proclaimed road movie, the film takes us to various places and into a multitude of situations, a feat never seen before in any of the previous Harry Potter films since they are mostly shot at a Hogwarts set. For those who have not read the books, it is still an excellent adventure movie with wizard-eating-snakes, Dementors and curses in every other scene.

Geek Mode: Speaking of scenes, there are some which I would prefer to have been part of the film.
  • One is Harry's farewell to the Dursleys. It might have been a minor scene in the book, relatively unimportant but I felt that it would be proper to give the family a proper exit, as with the novel. Dudley's change of heart, I would like to see that.
  • Second, Kreacher's Tale. I was surprised that so few (those who haven't read the book) asked the back story regarding how the elf knew about the locket and how it arrived at Grimmauld's Place. I guess nobody really cared as long as they get to see some hilarious action at the Ministry of Magic.
  • Third, Harry's proper reaction to the destruction of his Phoenix wand. He was like, "What? Oh it's fine, Hermione give me your wand." I mean, losing the twin core, his only protection against Voldemort., that deserves a bit more expression than blatant apathy.

As for the well talked about split, I think the producers made a marvelous decision on where to end Part 1. There is a definitive beginning and end to the movie that will not leave the feeling of loose ends but rather an insatiable anticipation for the next, the last, the ultimate final installment.

Geek Mode: Almost 3/4 of the Deathly Hallows book was already included in this first movie. The only scenes missing are the Gringgots robbery and the great battle at Hogwarts. Imagining more than 2 hours of feasting my eyes in the ruins, rubble and final showdown of love vs. evil makes me want to cry.


After 146 minutes...

Even though the film is the first part of a 2-part finale, it surprisingly can stand on its own. The story progress in rapid action-filled sequences, perfectly orchestrated to keep the audience on their toes. The alternating scenes of character/backdrop-oriented montages and edge-of-your-seat chase scenes building up to an explosive and endearing resolution made up this almost perfect rendition of J.K. Rowling's best novel to date.

10. Tiki Totems
I love puzzle games, especially ones with loads of free levels on them. The mission is simple, tap the blocks and safely land the Tiki God without dropping or 'hurting' him. Sound simple. Well, yes, for the first few levels at least.

9. Sky Patrol
I can almost call this app "Luxor Free" as it is free and is a complete replica of the dynamics of the said game. You travel along a rustic map as you shoot along the levels. Although, never start a new game since it will permanently erase all your hard earned progress.

8. Topple 2
All the cuteness and the bright colors will drive you crazy before you even play your first level. The goal is to stack up various shaped blocks to reach a predesignated line. The game gets harder with more odd shapes and higher height requirement.

7. Zombie Flick
The world is being invaded by zombies and a pile of trash is your last line of defense. And trust me, it's an addictive game even with the ridiculous premise. I found myself flicking random items like crazy. The 4-way alley of zombies keep you always on the lookout. Play with headphones on and you're immediately immersed in its deathly universe.

6.  Paper Toss
Who knew that such a simple game could be so addicting? Paper Toss is exactly just what it name suggest. You toss a paper in a trashcan and it counts how many successful consecutive throws you can do. That's it. Although there is always a fan nearby to deflect your throws so the game is more interesting that it sounds. The different scenes such as the Basement and Airport modes are beautiful to look at by the way.

5. Asphalt Free
I've downloaded more than a few free trial versions of various racing games from the App Store and found that this one is definitely one of the best. The controls are precise and you zoom through the road  quite accurately. The graphics are quite good and the number of power-ups that can be acquired on the road makes it more interesting that its counterparts.

4. Doodle Army Boot Camp
A stick man with a gun. That's all I can say in terms of visual. But even with the mediocre effects, this game is surprisingly addictive and enjoyable. The task is to guide the stick man into a boot camp filled with other soldiers shooting guns and dropping bombs at you. The availability of various weapons to chose from is a big plus in your quest to boot camp domination.

3. Ragdoll Blaster
At first, I was a bit hesitant to download this app because of the gloomy and depressing backdrop in the screencaps. But in the end, I'm glad I did. Its wonderfully imaginative levels transformed a normally dull game play into a maze of brain-bending challenges that will daunt even the smartest of minds. I recommend this for everyone who likes to think and have fun at the same time.

2. The Creeps
One of the most unappreciated game in the App Store, in my opinion at least. A tower defense game with cute monsters and a child cowering in his bed has never been more addictive and delightful. Honestly, I spent hours playing this game and did not even notice how fast the time flew. This game is great for those who strives of strategies and plans.

1. Tap Tap Revenge 3
The game did not get worldwide famous because of nothing. I started appreciating Tap Tap Revenge when we finally installed a WiFi router at home. I enjoyed downloading all the free tracks with new tap format and playing them for the first time since I already got tired of the 3 default songs that came with the initial installation of the game. Playing in 2 player mode doubles the fun and is great for slumber parties. Definitely worth the flash drive space.

It's time of the year once again, when there is a zero crime rate in the country, ceasefire in the military and the eyes of the nation is centered on one thing and one thing only.

While sport bar waiters are gearing up for a toxic shift and the National Historical Institute is readying their latest complaint about the way the national anthem will be sung, you are here, having stumbled upon this blog while combing the Internet for a site where you can watch the fight not 5 hours delayed and with 20 commercials in between each round. Oh, yes, and also, for free. Fret not, I understand each and every one of you.

Also, yes, I am sorry to burst your bubble but you will not find a live streaming video of the match here. Although, being a sort of a veteran in being selfish in a way that I want to watch the fight live without having to pay for it, I now feel compelled to share my trade secrets with you all who may be new to the era. Also, I feel bad about luring you all in here under false pretenses.

So, here are my surefire tips on how to find a credible streaming video without missing the game altogether.

Top 5 Ways to Find a Free Live Pacquiao Fight Stream in the Internet

5. Beware of streaming sites where you need to download first an unknown program before you can watch anything. The only thing you need to watch a video on the Internet is a flash plug-in. Do not download and install any file especially if you don't know what it is for.

4. Download SopCast ( This one is safe and legit, I swear. It's free and it works, provided that you have the right address for the match. I've watched 3 Pacquiao fights using this program and let me tell you, the video quality's pretty decent compared to other streaming sites and there's hardly any lag in the buffering

3. Foster a loving relationship with your cyber pals. Okay, maybe not loving per se, but you get the gist. 3 out of 5 times, I got to watch the fight from the link a Twitter pal sent to me. Also, don't forget to return the favor. It will be good karma for the future fights and other favors you may be needing from them.

2. Return the favor but don't do it in public. Common sense dictates that if there are too much people feeding off the same streaming video, the site's servers might not hold up to the demand and might eventually crash. So if you find a viable site, don't brag your searching powers and post the link on Facebook or Twitter for everyone to see. Share with trusted contacts via private messages and send to those who will also not spread the word too much.

1. Patience and good searching skills. Nothing beats powerful Googling prowess. And don't worry, it can be developed over time and experience.

So that's it. Sorry for the misunderstanding but I do hope that this post helped you in a way. If not, you can follow me at Twitter and I'll see what I can do at the day of the event.

Let's just say I almost died of fangirlism when I saw the Glee teaser on YouTube of Darren Criss singing an a capella version of Teenage Girl complete with snappy choreography and a swooning Kurt. Having watched him BE The Boy Who Lived in the fan made Harry Potter musical, "A Very Potter Musical", I've grown fond of his voice, wit and sheer talent.

And now, it's surreal to see him all grown up and world wide famous with his new role on Glee. The fact that he's playing an openly gay character on the show did not even deter us fans from melting into a groupie puddle while watching him serenade Kurt. 

I know AVPM fans listened to every word that came out of his mouth, and like everyone else belonging to that group, I thought of this song when he said in the episode: 

"You're not alone."

Yes, insane, I know. I should be over the pre-adolescent phase of hero worship, but I can't help it. He's just totally awesome. (Btw, I bet I would faint if he said that line on the show.)

As for the episode, I think this is one of the strongest Glee has done since the beginning of season 2. No hyped up pop princess to cover, but it made up for the heart and the lesson that it is trying to give. The locker scene with Kurt and the Neanderthal bully was still a surprise even though I saw that arc a mile away. Kudos to the actors for such an emotionally charged scene. I also liked the symmetry between Kurt and Coach Beastie's personal conflicts, although her locker scene with Mr. Schuester was a bit unsettling. For me, at least.

All in all, the strength of the episode lies in its newest guest star. (Yes, I know I'm biased). But come on, he really was amazing and I sure hope to see him in future episodes. An AVPM line or an inside joke would be priceless, just so you know. Ryan Murphy, I sure hope you're listening.

"This has been, the home of nu rock."

Last night was an emotionally charged night to rock music enthusiasts here in the country. The 23-year-running radio station NU 107 played their final song just before midnight in the presence of DJs and fans alike. Over 4,000 viewers watched the live stream of the tearful event in the internet, not to mention those who were listening over their (in one's case PENSONIC) radios.

I am certainly not a rocker nor even listened regularly to the station but the closing of NU reminded me of those radio channels which have suffered the same fate. Growing up in the 90s, we didn't have iPods and illegally downloadable music. MP3s were not existent and the only way one could listen to a favorite song was request it over radio phone lines or pray to Obama that it made the hit chart of the day.

I grew up with 97.1 Campus Radio's Top 20 at 12 and 93.9 KCFM's Chico and Delamar. Imagine my horror when both stations decided to change format, practically erasing all those that we have come to know throughout the years of tuning in. Instead of playing great music, they decided to replace coherent hosting with lewd jokes, irritating sound effects and inappropriate comments.

Now, another station waves its white flag. Being different must have been pretty unprofitable compared to other stations who cater to the C, D, E demographic, which, let's face it, are the ones who mostly tune in to radio programs as compared to those people who can easily afford iPods and download mp3s from the internet to their personal computers or laptops.

The dawn of a new era has come. Radio is no longer a crucial part of the music industry as anybody can now listen to whatever songs they like with just a click of a mouse. Thinking of the future of these networks and radio itself makes my head hurt.

Although, one thing I know. I would hate to be the jocks to replace NU's beloved DJs. I already read a plan to incessantly request for Slapshock. Let's just hope and pray that the few remaining credible radio stations (Wave 89.1, Magic 89.9, RX 93.1, 99.5 RT)  don't follow suit.

A few months ago, I posted a  blog entry regarding us claiming checks from the defamed pre-need company. Since then, I have been receiving many comments and questions regarding the requirements, process, even contact numbers, where to claim checks etc. and everything else under the sun regarding CAP. Again, for the record, I am not affiliated with the company and could much less answer questions from frustrated plan holders. However, I do feel compelled to do my best and answer these questions to the best of my abilities.

So my mother round up my CAP files and found this sort of checklist needed for claiming of checks. Add to that a copy paste session with the institution's official site, I collated this date for the benefit of all those confused and disappointed scholars out there. Hope this helps.  Drumroll please.

  • ORIGINAL CAP Certificate of Full Payment
  • ORIGINAL Assessment Form with Breakdown of misc. and other fees / Registration Form with no. of units enrolled (From scholar's current college/university.)
  • ORIGINAL Receipts for Reimbursement (From scholar's current college/university)
  • Course Curriculum

Just for comparison's sake:

Applied: December 29, 2008
Check Received: June 2010
(In fairness to the corporation, I think our checks were available as early as February 2010, we were just not aware that they were already ready to be claimed.)

You can read my first post (unanswered questions and all) re: claiming of cap checks here:

I am aware that the official website of the company is not that informative, nor am I. Just remember, if all else fails, there's always Google to fall back on. :) Good luck co-scholars.
