Chorizo Burrito

we all know themโ€ฆ the hair (and the lack of it by one of them), the exaggerated and funny Jim Carrey faces during their performances, and the lip-synched renditions of classic and pop songs, moymoy palaboy has made a mark on the internet and entertainment arena on their own youtube channel. but one of their funniest performances to date was Volare! i was personally laughing my a$$ off with that one andgot me hooked with their anticsโ€ฆ specially because this is where they got their mom to dance in the background while making the video! :D

and as a follow-up to their Spanish/Latin beat hit, they opted to sing Chorizo Burrito. equally funny on its own…

โ€ฆbut funnier after learning what the lyrics mean! hahahaโ€ฆ

galit ako kay martin nievera

okay, sige… makiki-ride ako ulit sa mga sikat na news. only because naiinis talaga ako sa mga tao na involved and nanghihinayang…. basta, kumukulo dugo ko sa mga bagay na ganito. and maybe i’m just proud to be Filipino and i’m proud of my heritage.

some people might not get it but i’m really irritated how Martin Nievera sang the National Anthem during the wildly celebrated Pacquiao-Hatton fight over the weekend. have you heard Martin’s version? because it was really his own version of the national anthem!

and now, Rep. Risa Hontiveros-Baraquiel is saying it’s OK.

IT’S OK!?! no ma’am, it’s not OK

you know what she said?

i’m rockstar in the office!

A and i had our evening date in Trinoma once. we had this phase where we’d go to the gaming places (timezone, worlds of fun, etc.) and have a go at the shoot ’em up and racing games. but we never tried those that often called quite some attention to the player e.g. those dance revolution thingies that evolved into stuff that included hand movements, etc.

then there was this game on the far-end of the game place and nobody was there. it was guitar hero i think. or something similar. you could live-out your dreams of being a rockstar! and we gave it a try since no one was around to stare (and make fun of an amateur) lol… and, i must say, i had tremendous fun playing the fake guitar! and somehow, i wish there was another time where no one would be there to stare and i could play to my heart’s content. until i found out about JamLegend!

JamLegend has the same idea — but it’s over the internet! so it’s practically free! just like the arcade/video game, you just press the keys when the indicators hit the base at the bottom of the screen. you know what else makes this cooler? i can hold my keyboard in the office like a guitar and play and pose like a rockstar again! hahaha… you should try it!

not worthy

somehow, natatawa at naiinis ako sa mga tao ngayon. totoo nga, you’ll never know how much you are loved until you’re gone. gaya ngayon ng nangyari kay francis magalona. his posts on multiply usually receive about 45 comments. but when he left us, comments flooded to over 2000 last time i checked. it’s funny and irritating, riding on the popularity and the ‘bandwagon’ of people condoling with the bereaved.

kung ako lang talaga, nahihiya ako na magpost ng tribute for such a great man. una di ko siya kilalang-kilala. di din ako fan although i sang his songs. memorized ko pa din ang Mga kababayan, Kaleidoscope World, Mga Praning, etc. kaya nahihiya ako. i ‘knew’ the songs but i didn’t know the man. but there’s possibly one thing i know — that he was bigger than what people give him credit for. he is not just a singer, rapper, host, father, husband. he’s an icon. he’s a hero in his own way. he’s francis m.

Linus’ Blanket

Looking for my Tuzki images, i stumbled upon a website (in Chinese or Japanese, i think) that kept playing this song. And I immediately fell in love! ๐Ÿ™‚ with the music, of course. ๐Ÿ˜‰ heehee…the song, Signal Waltz, is so Christmasy already. and after a few Googles, i found that their repertoire includes jazz and bossa. i guess it’s the fresh twist to the pop bossa i’ve already been served with Sitti. plus Linus’ Blanketย  actually their own compositions! lovely!!!

now i can sit back and relax with a cup of tea… with my pinky raised. ๐Ÿ˜€

Try to find their albums Semester and Labor in Vain. ๐Ÿ™‚

Boris Pasternak

“Fevrale dostat chernil i plakat,
Pisat O Fevrale navsnryd,
Poka grohochushaya slyakot
Vesnoyu charnoyu gorit.”

I bought the album Begin to Hope by Regina Spektor way back primarily because of the songs Fidelity and Better. But then I found the song Apres Moi as one of my favorites in the album. Apparently, the Russian part is from a poem by Boris Pasternak, a Nobel Laureate in Literature in 1958. But not with this poem though. ๐Ÿ˜€

And after repeating the name over and over again, I somehow recall something else. I remember a tune. “It’s so familiar to me,” I said to myself. and then WHAM! It hit me! He was mentioned in one of the other songs that I just love to listen to: We Didn’t Start the Fire by Billy Joel!

“…Little Rock
Pasternak
Mickey Mantle
Kerouac…”

Looks like I just added another one to my “to know” and “to read” list.

Sana close kami para first name-basis. ๐Ÿ˜› PEACE! ๐Ÿ˜€

“you make cardboard look cute”

a parody of 7 Things na kaka-post ko lang ngayong araw na ‘to. napa-“awwww…” lang ako sa linyang “you make cardboard look cute”

song of hope and wishful thinking and is actually delusional. baliw lang gagawa nito at magpapantasya sa isang life-size cardboard picture…

hmmm… pwede ko kaya siyang pagawan ng ganito? blow-up dolls have a bad rep eh. LOL…

sorry na lang, baliw din ako ngayon. hahaha… nagpapabata. ๐Ÿ˜€
