Four the Road

Meme mia! From Dodo

4 Jobs I Would Stink At

1. Anything in sales. I can never hold that smile long enough to sell anything. Kung ayaw mo, wag mo.

2. Macho dancer. Me thinks I would have to pay people to watch me dance.

3. Bartender. I did this for awhile at a friend's bar. I was the only one getting drunk at that bar. Heh.

4. Accountant. Magic Numbers, the only numbers I like.

4 Nicknames I Made Up For Myself/Other People Made Up For Me

1. L.A.
2. Kuhol
3. Mytor / Thory / Thorassic
4. Percy

4 Movies/Tv Series I Can Watch Over And Over Again

1. CHUNGKING EXPRESS. By default. And I really don't know why. I've been watching this movie (almost once a year) since Dodo introduced it to me in 1997. It flows the way your thoughts would. It's an experience in remembering.


3. LOVE ACTUALLY. Ehem. Yeah. The title credit always gets me choked up.

4. DELOVELY. Love the music. Delightful. Delicious. Delovely.

1.BUFFY THE VAMPIRE SLAYER. Even with the dark, pouty Buffy as the series winded down, this show never forgot how to have fun. Must must watch episodes are the gritty "The Body," the suprisingly creepy "Conversations with Dead People" and the (almost) silent episode, "Hush." (Seasons 5, 6 and 4 respectively)

2. DOCTOR WHO. The only show that can be anything it wants to be. From hard core sci-fic to twilight zone noir to epic space opera, this Time Lord does it all. Plus, you know, the Daleks.

3. NARUTO. 200 plus episodes in, these hidden leaf villagers still kick ninja-ass and throw chakra-charged kunai knives like it's nobody's business (and still the most fun ensemble on TV). The kids are all grown up in Shippuuden as some of them rush head-on to their inevitable tragic fates.

4. LOST. I''m torn between this and Battlestar Galactica, but if it's something that I would play on repeat, it would have to be LOST. To look for clues and all.

4 Things I Love To Do On Weekends

1. Cook
2. Customize action figures (working on a Kitty Pryde Barbie)
3. Sleep til noon
4. Toy hunt in Greenhills, Sta. Lucia or SM Megamall

4 Alcoholic Beverages I Enjoy From Time To Time
1. San Mig Light
2. Fundador
3. Red Wine
4. Whiskey Sour

4 Fantastic Vacations Destinations I Would Love To Go To Before I Pass Out
1. Cardiff, Wales
2. Japan
3. London
4. Earth 2

4 Celebrities I Would . . .ehem . . ."Date"
1. James MacAvoy
2. Daniel Wu (Forevah)
3. Won Bin
4. Geoff Johns

4 Things I Could Not Live Without
1. Music
2. Comic books
3. Jowaers
4. And I have to agree with Dodo, HK.

4 Gadgets/Appliances I Wish To Have
1. Tardis
2. Dalek Lamp
3. Hypospray
4. Sonic Screwdriver

Aaron Herr Who?

From he who asks.

1. Go here. The first random Wikipedia article you get is the name of your band.

2. Go here. The last four words of the very last quote of the page is the title of your first album.

If you want to do this again, you'll hit refresh to generate new quotes, because clicking the quotes link again will just give you the same quotes over and over again.

3. Go here. Third picture, no matter what it is, will be your album cover.

4. Go here. The first ten links you end up in (minus the .com’s) are your 10 song titles.


1. Aaron Herr
2. Possibly Have Gone Wrong

4. Tracklist
Black Box Voting
WBRS 100.1 FM
Center for Neighborhood Technology
Jump Up!
Lightning Field
Medium Phobic
The Neurotic Fishbowl That Is My Life

I'm liking the album title and the album cover (very Belle & Sebastian). The songs have that environmental politics angle that's a little Flaming Lips. But I still go for Mighty Band. Or BGBT. Heh.

Wrist Watch

My left wrist hurts. Finished 130 levels of the Mugenjo and Hidden Mugenjo in the new Naruto: Ultimate Ninja Heroes 2: The Phantom Fortress! PSP game. (That's a lot of colon.)

I've been doing less copywriting work. It's not that I have less work; it's really just the age of imagery (in advertising). The pictures come first lately. At work and in my head, I'm not hearing myself think. I'm seeing myself in different situations. My thoughts have this over-the-shoulder point of view. I'm scoping and surveying the landscape. I'm plotting tactical courses and pinning down time stamps on this map in my head. It's the Mugenjo's working.

I'm not thinking in words anymore.

Don't Confess (This Thing that Breaks My Heart)

We have finally (if only partially) solved our office's Internet problem. I'm so happy I could MEME the entire day.

An iPod meme from Dodobird Here's the instructions:

1. Put your music player on shuffle.
2. Press forward for each question.
3. Use the song title as the answer to the question

1. What Does This Year Have In Store For Me? Wider Too, Tender Forever

2. What Does My Love Life Look Like? Born Under a Good Sign, Teenage Fanclub

3. What Do I Say When Life Gets Hard? Columbus Avenue, Aimee Mann

4. What Do I Think Of When I Get Up In The Morning? Casimir Pulaski Day, Sufjan Stevens

5. What Song Will I Dance To At My Wedding? As You Wish , Aqueduct (I love, love this. But for tonight, as you wish, I'll beg for my life...)

6. What Do You Want As A Career? Whisper, A Fine Frenzy

7. Your Favorite Saying? I Must Belong Somewhere, Bright Eyes

8. Favorite Place? Not What You Want, Sleater-Kinney

9. What Do You Think of Your Parents? Pilot Can at the Queer of God, The Flaming Lips

10. Where Would You Go On A First Date? Push Up on Me, Rihanna

11. Drug of Choice? It Wasn't Me, Jenny Lewis with The Watson Twins

12. Describe Yourself. The Opposite of Hallelujah, Jens Lekman (Hah!)

13. The Song That Will Be Played At Your Funeral? Time Flies, Lykke Li (Not bad for an epitaph either)

14. What's Your Pornstar Name? I'm All Right, Madeleine Peyroux

15. What is Your State of Mind Like At The Moment? Melt My Heart to Stone, Adele

16. How Will I Die? New League of Nations, monograph

17. The Song You'll Put As The Subject? Don't Confess (This Thing that Breaks My Heart), Tegan and Sara

So if I judge my state through the iPod oracle, then I am a quite happy, mostly love struck, I jump to heavy petting on the first date, drugged with denial, and will join the new league of nations where I will die saving the world. Not bad.
