Kebab. It nourishes.

It's got all your food groups - carbo, protein, fiber, and garlic mayo.

Technology... moves so fast.

Paging Peter La Fleur and Patches O'Houlihan. We need you. Badly

Any moment now, while I'm splitting wood in my Kibbutz (pan camera to woodblock), a car will stop (pan camera to front wheel), the door will open (pan camera to foot on ground), then man walks towards me (wideview camera shot), man takes off sunglasses (pan camera to sunglasses), man speaks (close up shot of man's mouth), enter dialogue "We need you back kid", I stop what I'm doing (camera on my face, refocus slowly from man behind me to my face) "I'm retired..." "You're our only hope." "I'm not interested." "Listen, you're the best there was, the best there is, and the best there ever will be.."

Some Shocking Headlines

Bless this food that we are about to eat....It looks like missionaries are hell bent on converting the whole of Africa.

Rosamunde's Friend is Pinoy na Pinoy

Myleene Klaas is genetically Filipino (mummy) - Austrian (daddy). Culturally and ethnically, the TV personality/Marks & Spencer lingerie model/pop star/classical musician/DJ is British. Except for the beautiful features and the overachievement, there's nothing else obviously Filipino about her (ok, maybe the name is also very Pinoy)...until recently...when she was given 'advice' by police for waving a knife at some yobs who trespassed into her garden. As the chattering classes debate the nature of 'self defense' in typical stiff upper lip British fashion, she's put more pepper in the adobo with her bolo/itak threats. It's soooooo Pinoy. Ano Rosamunde? Pinay ba? Pinay na Pinay?

How old were you in High School?

...not old enough, apparently, if you consider the average age of your high school TV series freshmen/sophomores.

Clark Kent was already a DOM by the the time he was pursuing Lana. Josephine was 24 and still(!) in high school when she lost her virginity despite sleeping a lot with Dawson. The most jurassic high school is William McKinley in Lima, Ohio where the stereotypically populated glee club "New Directions" is based. The football jock Finn is fricking 28 and still suffers from premature ejaculation!

Despite this, I still watch because Quinn is kinda cute and I can have immoral thoughts without violating age of consent laws. (Britney Spears was a barely legal 17 when she cavorted with your filthy mind in a cheerleader's outfit.)

On the other hand, Natalie Portman was ACTUALLY 12 years old when she played a 12 year old Mathilda Lando in Leon.

We give you The Eye.

Wow sir, mamsir, galeng na ng mata niyo sir.

London Eye, formerly known as the Ferris wheel called the Millennium Wheel, formerly the tallest (now beaten by the Chekwas), is supported by a single A-frame on one side. One of the legs of this frame (the right one) is on property that is rented from the South Bank Centre for £500,000/year. It was originally a temporary attraction (5 years) but has become so popular that it is unlikely to be disassembled any time soon. The Eye has 32 airconditioned pods and one revolution takes 30 minutes. There have been 3214 weddings aboard the capsules, and like the mile high club, 415 couples have attempted to have illicit sex. At least one of the security men is Pinoy. It was destroyed by the Silver Surfer but has since been repaired by cheap labour from the colonies. Nostradamus predicted that the wheel will be unhinged on May 17, 2013 to coincide with the arrival of Lord Lucan.

Fafi Albums 02: Nunhead by Sebastian Faena

"Nunhead" by Argentinean Fafi Sebastian Faena. I don't know much about him except that he's a fashion photographer and started shooting at 16. These are his photos. They are so holy and mesmerising.

Stuff we learned today: Technology for Emerging Markets

I didn't know that the world's biggest microprocessor company even had a separate research division for emerging markets. Curious, The Nashman attended a lecture delivered by the man himself, the man who unleashed the classmate PC (but that really is another long story), the man at Intel whose remit is to define commercially viable technology products in emerging/developing countries. No, this talk wasn't going to be about the bleeding edge in teraflops science but about adapting mature technologies for the other half of the digital divide. And The Nashman was all ears (and all eyes...grabe, mas marami na palang babaeng gustong maging inhinyero sa panahon ngayon. Nung nasa kolehiyo ako idiay banbantay ket duwa wenno uppat laeng ti balasang, 50% pay ket nalasangen.)

The COMELEC are THIEVES and have stolen from the long suffering Filipino people their only hope Atty Elly Pamatong

Putang-ina, mga magnanakaw kayo! The Commission on Elections has inexplicably disqualified Atty. Elly Pamatong from running for the Philippine Presidency! Shame on you COMELEC!

This is a disgrace! Atty. Pamatong is a Graduate of the UP College of Law, a champion debater, and scored 92% in the Bar! Consider that his batchmate, the illustrious Ramon Magsaysay Awardee Miriam Defensor Santiago barely passed the bar! Did you hear that? He scored FOURTEEN MORE points in the Bar Exam than Miriam Defensor Santiago!

Ravenous Dawgs...

His Royal Orangeness Karl Willem, PA/PR Gromit, and the love leopard Mobutu, were feeling peckish and thus went to Portobello for tea and cake.

Fafi Albums 01: Ryan McGinley for Muse 2009

Fricking brilliant! The Nashman can't take his eyes off that dog and how happy it looks despite the difficult pose. If you don't know who Ryan McGinley is, you probably hang out too much at the Pinoy Photo Forums looking at photos of cameras and lenses arranged on a table sir ma'am sir.

Because they are always right...

Evangelical and FundaMENTAList Christians used to be concentrated in the USA...and for a while the world was safe. Then they started sending their army of zealots and nutters to Africa, the Philippines (who have crazy Catholics/CBCP already) then Brasil, and shock horror to....

This the FBI...we're the bleeding edge of technology...

...more like a joke agency if you ask me. This is the reality. No CSI wizardry here. It appears the 'aged' photo of Osama bin Laden they released involved the requisite google image search and then simply meshing the two images. How very scientific.

DVD stockpile from the Library...

The reason I don't torrent or even have itunes installed is that my local public library has a huge selection of films and music. I've been an insomniac lately so I'm going to lull myself to sleep with some classic films...and hopefully they'll spark some vivid dreams.

What's on your dictator's iPod?

Fricking Hilarious. Qadafi and Lionel Richie. Basta kulot, salot.

Does it matter if they leave the Sinos?

I also read today that China has the biggest stockpile of foreign currency reserves - $2,399B, 533% of what it was 5 years ago. The Chinese hoard is more than twice than Japan's , 28 times that of the USA's, and 53 times that of the Philippines'.

Big Babylon

For some bizarre reason, that HBO B-Movie "The Doomsday Gun" starring Langella and Spacey remains imprinted on my brain's cache folder rather than the archive. It's like I just saw it yesterday. So Saddam Hussein needs to make a big ass gun to use against the Iranians and the CIA and Britain and France and Germany come to his aid (why, for de oil of course). The chief designer for the supergun was a Canadian engineering genius named something something. The gun barrel sections were forged in Britain. Things happen along the way, the conspiracy is unmasked and the designer gets killed in Belgium, presumably by the Mossad (no one's sure). Now that I've recently personally seen one of the sections, I must say it's quite impressive size-wise..

The Republic of the Philippines has Nuclear Weapons!

Fuck Iran, Pakistan, North Korea, and India! The Philippines has admitted today that it has weapons of mass destruction and would happily use it against its own citizens.

Malacañang On Friday bristled at the remarks of a lawyer of the powerful Ampatuans assailing President Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo for abandoning them in the aftermath of the Nov. 23 massacre of 57 persons in Maguindanao.

“It’s a good thing that they’re being dropped like a hot potato and that a neutron bomb wasn’t dropped on them after what some members of the family have been accused of doing,”
- Gloria Arroyo's Press Secretary Cerge Remonde.

Where's the nearest vulcanizing shop?

Support Humus

This alleyway in the Red Light district really has everything you need. Clearly, man does not live on pita bread alone. On the left is your bog standard sex shop, in front of it an evangelical christian church, next to the church is a dimly lit stairwell with a badly scribbled note stating "1 and 2 models upstairs". Hmm, "models"...could it be Gisele? Adriana? or Fernanda Machado practicing their turns and pouts? Somehow the gnarling toughie in leather jacket Euro-villain attire inviting one to 'have a look mate' sets off my spider senses the wrong way. Aaaaanyways, next to the stairwell is where the pita bread is.....

The things men will do to get a shag....

Chris Rock once said "If a man offers to help you carry your luggage or opens doors for you and you are not hideously ugly, all he really wants is to get a chance to put his cock into your love hole." OK, he didn't quite say it that way but you get the drift. Consider the man above. A couple of Sundays ago, Remembrance Day to be exact, he raised eyebrows because of the medals on his chest...
