at least something nice happened this week

We are the champions, my friend!

And it feels so good! :-)

I love Chris Tiu and Rabeh, they carried the team on their shoulders and brought us to this championship but my favorite Eagle for this one is Nonoy Baclao. Sabi nga niya nung minsang nasupalpal niya si Maierhoffer, "astiiiiiiiiiig!!!"

You know when you've had a bad week (or bad couple of weeks) and you just wished something would happen to lift up your spirits? Well, well, well... this did it! I'm just so proud to be a part of the Ateneo community but it's not just because we are the champions. Even if we didn't win, which happened a lot, I'll always be proud to be an Atenean because of the seal of excellence that's attached to it. We deserve that. We earned that after four or so years of hardwork. Now that we're 'down from the hill' everybody expects a lot from Ateneo Alumni and we ought to prove ourselves everytime. It can be flattering sometimes but a lot of times it can be daunting as well. We have to live up to the name of our school and do it also for the many others who have upheld the the standards of excellence. And so far, I'd like to think that we haven't disappointed anyone yet. But ourselves (hahahahaha!). I will not get started on this.

Let's just celebrate!!! :-)

Danger Beach!

The new season of Entourage is up! Just saw the first episode tonight and I really missed Ari and Loyd! haha! You just can't help but feel the stress everytime... and Vinny Chase grew a mustache and a beard (ampanget!) and he's in self-exile in Mexico (where he lives like a King for $79 a day) following the bad reviews and lukewarm reception to Medellin.
Ari gets an offer for Vince to do a movie with a ridiculous title (Danger Beach) and V declines at first. He doesn't want to leave his Fantasy Island to meet with a producer who wants to do a movie with a loony name but soon, E and Ari are able to convince him to go back to LA for the meeting but they later find out that it's a set-up -- the producer is just using Vince to lock Emile Hirsch. Vince makes a resolve that he'll pick himself up and make a comeback.
Drama gets back at the producer by going to the latter's house, smashing his Mercedes (sparing the Maserati) with a golf club and putting a dead (and raw) fish on top of the hood. Turtle asks him what that was for and Drama says he's making a statement: Aquaman will be back.
Yon. That's it, don't watch it na! haha :-)

Well I knew I couldn't take all the dog food that they make.

For some reason, my week didn't start out right. Don't ask me. I really don't know why.

Mood: Irritated


Well I ain't no stupid fighter, I go for flower power
I've been running every race just to save my face, yeah
I saw it comin' around
I saw it comin' around, yeah
I saw it comin' around
So I just (yeaaaaaah) shook my head and walked away

It's all water under the bridge. haha

Last na for the day, I'm reposting lang naman eh. This one was posted by Raymund Marasigan himself on subsanwich:

skate or die 3

make no mistake. i'm not shoving my music to everybody. in fact my neighbors are probably tired of it haha. some of my closest friends and family have no desire to listen to it. my daughter didn't even know who the eraserheads were when teachers were asking about reunion rumors. as far as she knows, the good thing about that big show was trashing my hotel room with buddy and marcus' kids, the big swimming pool and the air conditioned tents backstage.

if you like what you hear , thank you. if you don't, feel free to try something else. i don't like anchovies myself.

i was admittedly hesitant about the first reunion. i was not sure if icould handle the pressure and crap that came with it.

at this very moment. i'm actually thinking of doing it again. (when ely gets well and strong of course)

i watched a kid fall after trying to kick flip a 7 step stairway in u.p. he failed 5 times. but kept getting up. dusted himself . made some adjustments until he finally nailed it. we all cheered and went home smiling.

somehow i know how it feels.


Still on the e-heads (can't get enough... still can't believe it happened!). Fans of The Beatles will never ever get to see or feel something remotely close to this.

This was how it should've ended (reportedly). From the MLs, apparently someone knew someone who was part of the production crew. I think it's very believable, considering the way it started, this would've been a very very good ending.

I imagine all 20,000 of us there reduced to tears, eternally grateful to the band for the music that so influenced our lives (as if we weren't yet) and for giving us one last chance to see them together. ALTHOUGH, since they're all on speaking terms again and since they enjoyed it so much, I wouldn't be surprised to see this happening again more than once in the next years. Wag lang sila mag guest sa ASAP or any noontime show.

When Magasin was to be played, the screen behind them would have montages of various news and magazine clippings of them. It would flash alternately with shots of the band and audience until the song reached the coda where Ely sings "...ay centerfold ka naaaa...woo hoo-hoo, haaa-haaa" part of the song. Then there would be fire works and a fountain of sparks, going on til the last note of the song. Then the hydraulic stage would be lowered and the band would make a "fake ending".

The lights would then go out. My sister said the band would wait til the
crowd chanted "more". "It would take two beers' worth of chanting "more" she said. Then in the darkness, a very dramatic keyboard solo would be heard, and it would be the opening chords of Para Sa Masa. The hydraulic stage would rise again and there they would be.

After Para Sa Masa, they'd switch into Overdrive. With the crowd pumped within an inch of insanity they were to hit us with Pare Ko. And then we would slow down and reminisce with Minsan.

Finally, they would perform Huling El Bimbo. Again, after the last refrain,
at the coda (la la la laaa...) the grand fireworks display would go off, fountains of light surrounding the stage. The next la-la-la parts would see
fireworks from behind the general admissions section, and as the song ended there would be a burst of confetti all over the audience. Then the hydraulic stage would be lowered for the final exit.

Those were the plans for the Ultraelectromagnetic night. It may not have
happened as planned but at least we knew they were going to give us a show we would never forget!

We asked my sister if the band knew about all these plans and she said they did. In fact they were so excited about all the gimmicks and couldn't wait to party with the audience. "Nag-usap pa nga sila kung may mga kailangang saluhin na kanta just in case (di na kaya ni Ely)," she said. "And Ely said, hindi, Kakanta ako!"
