We’ve seen ACTORS and ACTRESSES walked down the aisle of FAME with flashing cameras on their faces splendid with their BEST GOWNS and SUITS like beauty of gods and goddesses in MOST of the AWARDS NIGHTS as one of their guild of ACTORS will be sleet as ONE OF THE BEST in their craft. But you know what; there is one thing that those AWARD GIVING BODIES really fail to noticed. Have they witnessed a WOMAN IN LABOR? Where? In the Delivery Room. And why? I hereby announced it as THE BEST PLACE & TIME for the BEST ACTRESSES congregation of all time!!! PUSH! PUSH! PUSH! And the BABY goes to?!!!

trick-or-treat?



Trick-or-treating is one of the main traditions of Halloween.


It has become socially expected that if one lives in a neighborhood with children one should purchase treats in preparation for trick-or-treaters.


Yet i can't remember in my childhood days that i had this, nor have this in our province.


But it would be crazy if someone would thump on our door and says, trick-or-treat? with such blurry appearance.


Happy Halloween!!!

da re-AWAKENING MUMMY!!!

"...where is damn Rachel Weisz? Its just too weird that Brendan Fraser and Maria Bello worked with less chemistry, that you'll think of another movie being put into theater, watch it and after left no impressions. Likewise, I'd rather wanted to see more of Luke Ford and Isabella Leong on a romantic teen drama, though Isabella portrayed well her avenger's character.



When it comes to excitement and full throttle action packed sequel and great casting,. no doubt, the FIRST has it.

It then was added more spices on the SECOND as THE ROCK fill in, though it didn't raked the FIRST.

One thing that the THIRD has that the others don't have is that IT IS MORE MAGICAL and its supernaturalism won it. Nothing more interesting on the characters portrayal though I'll give credits to the ASIAN SUPERSTARS and LEGENDaries Jet Li and Michelle Yeoh for their kicking action upbringing!..."

PROM NIGHT: A Party To Die For (?!)

"....a jump-in-your-seat, scary, thriller and a suspenseful movie?! Not really!

Predictable scenes, hide-and-seek killing time are not that surprising at all!

Though, Britanny Snow showed her acting (creepy) skills, it didn't go up to give the movie an overall passing grade for a movie thriller. It didn't even moved me as a BIG FAN of a thriller-suspenseful movie! this one?! It's not that this bores me but it didn't leaved me the impression to watch HOLLYWOOD Movies all over again! ASIAN thriller-horror movies are way hundredfold better!

Quote from the suspense-thriller movie, PROM NIGHT:

Ronnie Heflin
: I want to make a toast. To my little queen... No matter what happens. Cheer?
Bobby: Cheers.
[as they all toast]
Lisa: [turns to look at Crissy and then back] If that bitch wins... I'll hurl!
Donna: Ok, I'm sorry. Would you just explain to me, why do you care? What do you get? A bouquet of roses and a tacky tiara you can only wear to proms?
Lisa: It's not about what you get. It's like, it's about the honor, you know. It's about the respect of my peers.
Bobby: [laughing with everyone] Are you serious?
Donna: That's the geekiest thing you've ever said.
Lisa: [beat] Ok, 'guess it was a little geeky. But seriously. I just want Crissy to know that she can't buy everything and think about the reunions to come. I win, it'll eat away at her until the day she dies.

sss-HE's the mAn!

Tinseltown's leading ladies may generate more tabloid ink, but when it comes to blockbuster paychecks, Hollywood is still a man's town. In an era where risk-averse studio executives have declared men the more reliable movie stars-- and the more desirable moviegoers -- perhaps it's no surprise that they are also the medium's top earners. The reality: Hollywood's 10 best-paid actors out-earned Hollywood's 10 best-paid actresses 2-to-1 over the course of the year. Collectively, the big screen's leading men took home an estimated $487 million this year, compared with the leading ladies' haul of $244.5 million. Will Smith leads the pack of Hollywood's best-paid actors, banking an estimated $80 million over the course of the year. Frequently called the hardest-working man in Hollywood, Smith has proved that no matter the genre -- be it sci-fi thriller ("I Am Legend") or sappy drama ("The Pursuit of Happyness") -- he can deliver an audience. The former "Fresh Prince of Bel Air" star also set a theatrical record this year. Thanks to the commercial success of this summer's anti-superhero flick "Hancock," Smith is the first actor in Hollywood history to have eight straight movies eclipse $100 million at the box office.

Coming in second on the list is "Pirates of the Caribbean" star Johnny Depp, an actor who is known to vacillate between commercial work and artier fare. He still managed to pull down $72 million this year. In this case, the bold-faced star followed up his three turns as Captain Jack Sparrow in Disney's $2.76 billion "Pirates" franchise with the Stephen Sondheim serial-killer musical "Sweeney Todd: The Demon Barber of Flat Street." Though the latter hardly set box office records, it did earn Depp an Oscar nomination. With $55 million, Eddie Murphy comes in third among Tinseltown's top earners, thanks to a slew of family-friendly hits. The long-reigning master of disguise continues to prove his range on- screen, playing notable roles in everything from animated flicks ("Shrek") to goofball comedies ("Norbit") to musical remakes ("Dreamgirls"). The latter earned him an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actor. Then there's "Austin Powers" star Mike Myers, who is tied for third on this list with earnings of $55 million, due in large part to the success of the hit animated franchise "Shrek." But when it comes to live-action fare, the comedy chameleon's ride has been far less smooth in recent years. Despite a stellar cast (including Justin Timberlake and Jessica Alba) and plenty of promotion, Myers' summer comedy "The Love Guru" failed to deliver at the box office. To date, the Paramount flick has generated only $31.8 million domestically. "Titanic's" Leonardo DiCaprio rounds out the top five, raking in $45 million during the year. He's the unique movie star who can get $20 million for work in R-rated adult dramas, which, because of viewer age restrictions, have limited ability to generate big box office numbers. Though his flicks are rarely blockbusters, DiCaprio's work can create a sizable amount of Academy Award season buzz. In fact, three of his last five flicks -- "Gangs of New York," "The Aviator," and "The Departed" -- were nominated for Best Picture. The latter took home the Oscar

Your daddy was a pastor of the New Hope Baptist Church; my daddy was a pastor of a church at Excelsior Springs. Um. You're the youngest of the three James boys; I'm the youngest of the five Ford boys. Between Charley and me, is another brother, Wilbur here, with six letters in his name; between Frank and you was a brother, Robert, also with six letters. Robert is my Christian name. You have blue eyes; I have blue eyes. You're five feet eight inches tall. I'm five feet eight inches tall. Oh me, I must've had a list as long as your nightshirt when I was twelve, but I've lost some curiosities over the years.

NO DOUBT, this new installment of THE BATMAN is one of a kind,. The script, the characters, the sequence, the action-packed drama is a legend,.

Heath Ledger stole most of the scenes,. Downright evil, fraudulent, insane, psychotic, petrifying. More creepy than humorous, he shows audiences the Joker is unquestionably Batman's most wicked foe and his perfect archenemy,. He deserves an OSCAR.

her FINAL WORDS

'World's oldest blogger' dies in Australia


Mon Jul 14, 1:32 AM ET

SYDNEY (AFP) - An Australian woman described as the world's oldest Internet blogger has died at the age of 108 after posting a final message about singing "a happy song" in her nursing home.

Olive Riley "passed away peacefully on July 12 and will be mourned by thousands of Internet friends and hundreds of descendants and other relatives," a note on her website said.

Riley had posted more than 70 entries on her blog from Woy Woy on the east coast since February last year, sharing her thoughts on modern life and her experiences living through the entire 20th century.

Born in the outback town of Broken Hill on October 20 1899, she lived through two world wars and raised three children while doing various jobs, including ranch cook and barmaid.

In her final post on June 26, she wrote: "I can't believe I've been here in this nursing home for more than a week.

"How the days have flown, even though I've been in bed most of the time. I still feel weak, and can't shake off that bad cough.

"Penny, who's in the next bed to mine, had a visit one day this week from her daughter, who's a professional singer. Guess what happened! She and I sang a happy song, as I do every day, and before long we were joined by several nurses, who sang along too. It was quite a concert!"

Riley's blog, initially on www.allaboutolive.com.au and more recently at http://worldsoldestblogger.blogspot.com, was "mind-blowing to her," her great grandson Darren Stone said.

"She had people communicating with her from as far away as Russia and America on a continual basis, not just once in a while," he told the national AAP news agency.

"She enjoyed the notoriety -- it kept her mind fresh."

PHOTOS worth the BIG $

First Photos of Brangelina twins will get fortune

By Associated PressJuly 13, 2008, 10:32 am PDT

- PARIS (AP) — They are the ultimate million-dollar babes. Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt's new twins, a girl and a boy born by Caesarean section on Saturday, are barely a few hours old but already their first photos are worth a fortune.

A million dollars, two, five, 10 even 20 million? Exactly how much the first "official" snaps will be sold for is not clear. But the figures being bandied about make the eyes pop.

Nice Matin, the hometown daily in the Riviera city in the south of France where Jolie gave birth, put the twins' worth at more than $11 million. It first broke news of the birth and reported Sunday that the couple have sold the rights for the first photo of their newly enlarged family to a U.S. publication, which it did not name, and that the proceeds would go to charity.

"I've never known a set of pictures to be worth this amount of money," said Darryn Lyons, owner of Big Pictures, a celebrity photo agency in London. He estimated that the twins' official photos will be worth between $15 million and $20 million.

The only other photos that "would possibly come that close is Britney Spears giving birth to an alien," he said.

Veteran London-based celebrity publicist Max Clifford estimated that the first photos could fetch 10 million pounds — roughly $20 million — "which would make it the biggest baby deal ever."

"These kind of pictures sell lots of magazines," he said. "It's a 10-million-pound gamble as to whether the ends justify the means. But obviously it's a very calculated risk because whoever lands the photos will have a lot of experience with the popularity of mum and dad."

Cue the paparazzi. They've been camped in Nice since shortly after Jolie's admission to the Lenval hospital there at the end of June, hoping for possibly lucrative pictures of the glamourous Hollywood couple. For them, the Brangelina twins are the biggest story of the year.

Never mind that Jolie was ensconced on the fifth floor in a section of the maternity ward that has been security-enhanced, that she was staying out of sight behind the mirrored blue windows, and that the hospital said that it had put up a special material on the windows of the couple's room that prevents telephoto lenses from peering through.

Paparazzi still had hopes that they would get a valuable shot of Jolie — either as an expectant or brand-new mother. And Pitt made an attainable target: he was photographed coming and going from the hospital with some of the couple's four other children.

Clifford said he didn't think that paparazzi will be able to get any candid shots of the babies and, if they do, he didn't think they will have much impact on the value of the official photos.

"If there are sneak shots, they're not going to be anything like the posed ones," he said. "All it does is whet the appetite of those who want to see real quality pictures."

Lyons of Big Pictures also did not think paparazzi will get candid shots.

"There's always a chance in this business. It's down to who is good at what they do," he said. "If you were to get a paparazzi set of photos you could easily buy a little island to live on for the rest of your life."

"Certainly, the feeding frenzy just goes to show that people talk about the celebrity-obsessed world we live in. If publishers are willing to pay up to 15 million, there are obviously plenty of people wanting to see them."

"In the celebrity world, it seems to be the double second coming," he added.

Celebrity R-U-L-E-S

Can celebrity relationships really survive?

by Anne Ichikawa, Shine staff, on Thu Jun 26, 2008 9:51pm PDT

...

Rumors have been tiptoeing around about marriage troubles between Madonna and her husband of seven years, director Guy Ritchie. It seemed to everyone that the once wild, pointy bra-wearing Queen of Pop had settled down for good with her Brit, with her finding Kabbalah, doing massive amounts of yoga, and adopting little David from Malawi. However, all indications point towards a confirmation of a divorce, with word that she's hiring Paul McCartney's divorce lawyer, Fiona Shackleton. Thus, another celebrity marriage bites the dust. Sad, sad, sad. All relationships and marriages face their challenges, but in the world of Hollywood and fame, there are booby traps left and right from being surrounded by gorgeous men and women, having nasty rumors spread, and over publicized romances.

After the jump, pitfalls that celebrity couples face that us average Joe's and Jane's don't have to deal with.

Temptation: the other woman/man
Case in point: Brad Pitt and Jennifer Aniston
Imagine yourself in Jennifer Aniston's shoes: your husband is the hottest man alive and he's leaving to shoot a movie with the hottest woman alive, Angelina Jolie. The set of Mr. and Mrs. Smith proved to be too much quality time between Brad and Angelina and those pouty lips were no match for Jen's toned arms. Temptation abounds in the sea of endless beauty that is Hollywood.

Over-publicity

Case in point: Ben Affleck and Jennifer Lopez
There was a time in 2002 where you couldn't turn on the TV or read a magazine without seeing or hearing that dreaded, stupid compound word, "Bennifer." They were the ultimate publicity whores, which probably was the end cause of their broken off engagement. The couple was overexposed in a bad way, resulting in the embarrassing, box office failure, Gigli. No wonder both J.Lo and Affleck try to keep a low profile with their now husband and wife, Marc Anthony and Jennifer Garner.

One is more famous
Case in point: Reese Witherspoon and Ryan Phillippe
Reese Witherspoon is America's darling. She was charming and hilarious in Legally Blonde and won an Oscar for her portrayal of June Carter in Walk the Line. Her husband...er, what's his name? Exactly. Ryan Phillippe was suffering from a severe drought of good movie roles, and little fame. Perhaps he felt neglected and emasculated? Whatever the real issue was, he cheated on her with actress Abbie Cornish and the World's population collectively thought: downgrade.

Overexposed by Reality TV

Case in point: Jessica Simpson and Nick Lachey
They were like the Lucille Ball and Desi Arnez of the millennium, except she was the wacky blond and he was the straight laced boy next door. Neither one of them was very famous before the run of their reality show Newlyweds, that documented their marriage, showcasing her ditziness and his good guy demeanor. It really catapulted Simpson to celebrity status, inflated her ago, and resulted in her leaving poor Nick. Another couple gone bad due to reality TV: Travis Barker and Shanna Moakler in MTV's, Meet the Barkers.


Are celebrity couples doomed to fail because of the nature of the industry they work in? How would it be possible to avoid these pitfalls?

Do you take three square meals every day?

"Oh yes, I do. For breakfast, I take oatmeal with a moderate amount of sugar with milk. For lunch, it's mixed. I take a lot of carbs because of my hectic scheds. Believe it or not but I eat a lot during dinner maybe be'coz i have my 5-minute-eat-breakfast-rule to follow every morning. I don't know why but I have a good appetite at night and it must be because that's when you feel tired and hungry after a hard day's work."

why so SERIOUS?


Hold your breath! Coz, again, the BAT will take YOU on his new adventure!

Adventures that no one could explain how will it ends.

Adventures that will lead you to your ultimate vista as Heath Ledger will reprise the role of the infamous, the JOKER!

Need some “jokes”?

Catch him on July 18, 2008! Before the Joker will catch you ‘till DEATH!

.........

As Batman, Lieutenant James Gordon, and new district attorney Harvey Dent successfully begin to round up the criminals that plague Gotham City, a mysterious criminal mastermind known only as the Joker appears in Gotham, creating a new wave of chaos. Batman's struggle against the Joker becomes deeply personal, forcing him to "confront everything he believes" and improve his technology to stop him.[6] A love triangle develops between Bruce Wayne, Dent and Rachel Dawes

..........









"As we looked through the comics, there was this fascinating idea that Batman's presence in Gotham actually attracts criminals to Gotham, [it] attracts lunacy. When you're dealing with questionable notions like people taking the law into their own hands, you have to really ask, where does that lead? That's what makes the character so dark, because he expresses a vengeful desire."
Nolan on the theme of escalation

what's UP with the GREYS?

“At some point, you have to make a decision. Boundaries don’t keep other people out. They fence you in. Life is messy. That’s how we’re made. So, you can waste your lives drawing lines. Or you can live your life crossing them. But there are some lines… that are way too dangerous to cross.”

“You know how when you were a little kid and you believed in fairy tales, that fantasy of what your life would be, white dress, prince charming who would carry you away to a castle on a hill. You would lie in bed at night and close your eyes and you had complete and utter faith. Santa Claus, the Tooth Fairy, Prince Charming, they were so close you could taste them, but eventually you grow up, one day you open your eyes and the fairy tale disappears. Most people turn to the things and people they can trust. But the thing is its hard to let go of that fairy tale entirely cause almost everyone has that smallest bit of hope, of faith, that one day they will open their eyes and it will come true.”

“: At the end of the day faith is a funny thing. It turns up when you don’t really expect it. It’s like one day you realize that the fairy tale may be slightly different than you dreamed. The castle, well, it may not be a castle. And it’s not so important happy ever after, just that its happy right now. See once in a while, once in a blue moon, people will surprise you , and once in a while people may even take your breath away. “

“A couple of hundred years ago, Benjamin Franklin shared with the world the secret of his success. Never leave that till tomorrow, he said, which you can do today. This is the man who discovered electricity. You think more people would listen to what he had to say. I don’t know why we put things off, but if I had to guess, I’d have to say it has a lot to do with fear. Fear of failure, fear of rejection, sometimes the fear is just of making a decision, because what if you’re wrong? What if you’re making a mistake you can’t undo? The early bird catches the worm. A stitch in time saves nine. He who hesitates is lost. We can’t pretend we hadn’t been told. We’ve all heard the proverbs, heard the philosophers, heard our grandparents warning us about wasted time, heard the damn poets urging us to seize the day. Still sometimes we have to see for ourselves. We have to make our own mistakes. We have to learn our own lessons. We have to sweep today’s possibility under tomorrow’s rug until we can’t anymore. Until we finally understand for ourselves what Benjamin Franklin really meant. That knowing is better than wondering, that waking is better than sleeping, and even the biggest failure, even the worst, beat the hell out of never trying. “

“Maybe we like the pain. Maybe we’re wired that way. Because without it, I don’t know; maybe we just wouldn’t feel real. What’s that saying? Why do I keep hitting myself with a hammer? Because it feels so good when I stop. “

“Intimacy is a four syllable word for, “Here’s my heart and soul, please grind them into hamburger, and enjoy.” It’s both desired, and feared. Difficult to live with, and impossible to live without. Intimacy also comes attached to the three R’s… relatives, romance, and roommates. There are some things you can’t escape. And other things you just don’t want to know.

“Pain, you just have to ride it out, hope it goes away on its own, hope the wound that caused it heals. There are no solutions, no easy answers, you just breath deep and wait for it to subside. Most of the time pain can be managed but sometimes the pain gets you where you least expect it. Hits way below the belt and doesn’t let up. Pain, you just have to fight through, because the truth is you can’t outrun it and life always makes more.”

“There’s something to be said about a glass half full. About knowing when to say when. I think it’s a floating line. A barometer of need and desire. It’s entirely up to the individual. And depends on what’s being poured. Sometimes all we want is a taste. Other times there’s no such thing as enough, the glass is bottomless. And all we want, is more. “

“Maybe we’re not supposed to be happy. Maybe gratitude has nothing to do with joy. Maybe being grateful means recognizing what you have for what it is. Appreciating small victories. Admiring the struggle it takes simply to be human. Maybe we’re thankful for the familiar things we know. And maybe we’re thankful for the things we’ll never know. At the end of the day, the fact that we have the courage to still be standing is reason enough to celebrate. “

J---umper!



“…flit through wormholes in the time-space continuum? Dang! The movie was able to satisfy adventure-seekers for their wanderlust and appetite for adventure. Never mind Christensen. So were you at? A jumper or a clandestine? 1 2 3 let the war begin!…”

'Idol' killing music?



Hello bloggers, i just want to share this letter
from Bob Lefsetz, a music blogger, who thinks American Idol is destroying music.

..........

Posted Thu Apr 24 12:32pm PDT

by

Bob Lefsetz in






The Lefsetz Letter

I saw Paul Stanley in the audience of American Idol.

What can I say, Felice is addicted, I heard the rumble from afar and when I went to retrieve her from the bedroom, I got hooked by the show too. I guess it's just instinct, we're all judges, we want to evaluate talent...and just maybe we want to be a member of the club. American Idol has the highest ratings of any weekly series, it's the most talked about show, its stars go on to have hit records...

Well, not so much anymore. Sure, Kelly Clarkson had some hits, but she was the first. And "Since U Been Gone" was a product of the Max Martin machine. Carrie Underwood is a star in the country world, she's the beneficiary of the best material in Nash Vegas...

Wait a minute here... Is this two-dimensional stardom, are these performers no more than cardboard?

The classic rockers were built on their own material. There were no song doctors. It was directly from their heart to yours. And this has delivered audiences in some cases 40 years after their debut. If you're just singing someone else's song, you're driving the BMW. Someone else can get inside and take the wheel instantly. Which is what happens in the evanescent pop world. Everybody today may not be a one hit wonder, but few have more than two or three hit tracks, and almost none of these acts can do respectable live business.

And we learned that TV exposure shortens careers. That was the lesson of MTV. If you're on, you're in everybody's household for a brief window, then you're discarded like a candy wrapper, the chocolate having been savored for an instant and then forgotten.

And what about the runners-up?

Sure, Daughtry has had hits. Interesting that he's a rocker, when so many of the winners are diva-wannabes... But can you name the other contestants who almost won? How about some of those who DID win, like Fantasia and Ruben Studdard?

It's a house of cards. A TV show. And TV is the number one mass medium in the history of the world. It can sell anything. Just ask Procter & Gamble. But even TV is faltering, in this permission marketing, multi-channel, Internet world. In other words, are we just mesmerized that ANYTHING can get this many eyeballs, this much traction in today's diverse cultural landscape?

It's not like these are artists. Hell, Carly Hennessy/Smithson already failed once. These are voices, doing the best karaoke job of all time. And in many cases, not that good.

Carly Smithson murdered "Superstar" on Tuesday night. I remember when I heard the original on the radio in the spring of 1970, before Webber and Rice went all Broadway on us, when they still employed rock singers and had credibility. The track was joyous, infectious. Carly evidenced none of these attractions. There was no CONTEXT!

Simon is a star. You just wait to hear what he says. Paula rivets you because you're waiting to see if she implodes on camera. Randy is sacrificing what credibility he had for a paycheck.

But it's not like Paula and Randy can have any success off this show. No one cares. It's just about the show.

Simon's smart enough to know it's not about his fame, it's about the dough. That TV delivers momentary record sales, that he can profit from.

Is this the game you're in? Earning a golden ticket to instant fame that will be taken away from you on your way to the 7-11, transforming you from a customer to an employee?

If you want to have a long career, write your own material. Be different, not the same. And don't go on television, it will shorten your tenure.

If you can't write, if you've got nothing to say, try out for American Idol. You might get a shot at momentary fame, but that's all it is, momentary.

As for Mr. Stanley... The people watching are not KISS fans, this is not bringing in dollars to your enterprise. People lose sight of the truth. The truth is that American Idol has got nothing to do with rock and roll, nothing to do with careers. Anybody can get on television, haven't you watched Survivor, or MTV or VH1? The PROGRAM is the star, not the talent. Never forget this.

*** quotable quotes from maging sino ka man ***

"I love you not because of what you can give me, but because of what you can take,
I am so willing to give, I love you because... I love the me when I'm with you, sometimes you have to fight hard just to make love survive, get hurt, always badly but what's important is that you gave it a shot, real love is never regretful and even if it fails to last, real love should only make you a better person, a stronger person, and in love real strength is knowing when to give up the fight and finally let go!"


One day I will disappear completely. The letters will mean nothing. The world will get tired of me. You will get tired of me. I will get tired of myself, and die. But I will never get tired of you. For you, there will be no endings. I will say your name over and over, like a refrain. My prayer to no one. Then i'll be a flower, the one you'll never pick. And will endure the breathless waiting till boundaries disappear. With nothing to do, I make new constellations. Images of you as I remember - Dancing. Sitting. Walking... There are stars from a different view. But still, i see nothing but you. Unfurling like a flower. Swiveling like a leaf... I once watched you sleep beside me. It was dark then, but the darkness is deeper now. Tonight in my dreams I will see you, my lady, clothed only in light... Like a kite, I've given my self up to the wind. I made friends with the sun. Confused the birds with strange and distant voyages. But it is you that ties the thread and hauls me down. Like a kite, I will forever hold your hand. And with a burning human longing, in your hands, I surrender. I will never get tired of you. For you there will be no endings. I will say your name over and over... Celine... Celine... like a refrain. My prayer to no one. You know I will never get far. And there is no need for my return. I've never been a traveler. For I have never left. I am lost, simply. Wanting to be in a place I've never been, and will never be. Of all destinations, I long to be lost in the fields of your hair, lost among your thoughts as you are already in mine. You are my imperative to live. My life started when I loved you. And that's how I want it to end.

"Our search for love is our search for meaning in our lives, we could go on searching for it all of us trying forever, we may either succeed or we may fail, should we choose to look for love? there really is no more important person that should show us love but ourselves".


"Ano nga ba ang mas tama ang mag bago ka para sa pagmamahal

o hayaan ang pag mamahal na baguhin ka? Lahat tayo nakakagawa ng pag kakamali sa buhay natin minsan maliit, yun yung mga tipong madling mapatawad at makalimutan, minsan malaki sa sobrang laki, pati tayo nahihirapan tayong patawarin ang sarili natin kaya pilit tayo nag babago, nag hahanap ng paraan para maitama ang mga mali para sa wakas maging karapat-dapat tayong mag mahal at mahalin."


"Things can't be perfect all the time, in reality life
comes with so many imperfections and these imperfections make life more interesting, more exciting, hindi dapat tayo mabuhay na laging takot humakbang na baka hindi i
to ang tamang daan you have to take risk, at kung di sigurado ang steps natin we discover new things, we meet new people and soon you'll realize na mas kaya mo pala higitan yung mga bagay na akala mo dati yun lang ang kaya mo, sa pagmamahal ganun din, di dapat tayo pangunahan ng takot na magkamali, na masaktan, even if we have notions kung sino ang dapat mahalin, kung pano sila dapat mahalin at kung bakit sila ang dapat nating mahalin, dahil malalaman natin sa bandang huli na kapag nagmamahal tayo, hindi naman talaga nai-kakahon ang puso at makakaya mo nang sabihin na.. mahal kita maging sino ka man."

can a BOY and a GIRL "just be friends"?

The Bible urges young men to treat "younger women as sisters with all the chasteness."
- (1 Timothy 5:2)

By applying this principle, it is indeed possible to enjoy clean, wholesome friendships with members of opposite sex. The apostle Paul, for example, was a single man who enjoyed a number of friendships with Christian women. (See Romans 16:1, 3, 6, 12). He wrote of two "women who have striven side by side with me in the good news." (Philippians 4:3) Jesus Christ also enjoyed balanced, wholesome association with women. On numerous occasions, he enjoyed the hospitality and conversation of Martha and Mary - Luke 10:38, 39; John 11:5.

Nevertheless, a teenager should not begin dating simply because he or she feels pressured to do so! For one thing, dating is a serious business - a part of the process of the selecting a marriage mate. Marriage? Admittedly, this may be the last thing on the minds of most youths who date. But really, what justification could there be for two people of the opposite sex to begin spending a lot of time together other than to investigate the possibility of marrying each other? In the long run, dating for any other reason is likely to result in anything but "fun". Why so?

step up 2: THE STREETS



"...this is a great movie if you are in the dance scene, love to dance or can't dance but disappointingly, Channing Tatum had just appeared in a cameo role which made me felt bad. He deserves better than Robert Hoffman, I must say. Otherwise, there isn't much of a story line and the synopsis is actually very similar to the first.
Great dancing, not much else...."

supernatural season 1

Season 1 Trivia
  • The Pilot was filmed in California.
  • The show is filmed in Vancouver, British Columbia, with post production done in California.
  • Unlike many series, Supernatural does show the name of the episode, just before the cast credits appear.
  • Like fellow sci-fi show Lost, the show does not have an opening credit sequence or theme music, only a title card. Most episodes have a brief recap of the show's back story and important events. Two episodes featured extended, music-video-style recaps: the recap in "Salvation" is set to "Carry On Wayward Son" by Kansas, and the recap in "The Devil's Trap" is set to "Fight the Good Fight" by Triumph. The show features many classic rock songs, differing from other shows broadcast on The WB which typically tend to feature music by newer, contemporary artists.
  • The car Sam and Dean drive is a 1967 Chevrolet Impala, which has been nicknamed the Metallicar by fans of the show. The show uses five black Impalas.
  • In "Dead in the Water," Sam and Dean introduce themselves as Agents Ford and Hamill, the surnames of Harrison Ford and Mark Hamill, both main actors in the Star Wars series of films. Also in that episode, there is a young boy named Lucas, the surname of Star Wars creator George Lucas.
  • In "Hell House", the two "paranormal investigators" that Sam and Dean meet are Zeddemore and Spengler, which are the names of two characters from Ghostbusters. In the episode, Zeddemore and Spengler wear goggles made to look like the pair worn by Dan Aykroyd's character in Ghostbusters II.
  • In "Phantom Traveler", Dean hums "Some Kind of Monster" by Metallica on the plane. He also introduces himself as Dr. James Hetfield (the lead singer of Metallica) in the same episode.
  • The website that Sam discovers in "Hell House" is www.hellhoundslair.com, a website created by the show's producers.
  • In the opening of "Hell House," Dean sings the refrain to the Blue Oyster Cult song "Fire of Unknown Origin." This is ironic, considering that this would be the official reason given to explain the death of his own mother as well as Sam's girlfriend Jessica.
  • In "Something Wicked," Sam researches the Shtriga at the local library, finding newspaper reports of similar deaths in Brockway, Ogdenville, and North Haverbrook: the same three cities monorails were sold to in The Simpsons episode "Marge vs. the Monorail."
  • In "Faith," the reverend Roy Le Grange's name could be a reference to the famous ZZ Top song "La Grange"; in the episode, the reverend's meeting tent is on the edge of town, and in the song a brothel is on the outskirts of town
  • In "Provenance," the camera pans past a car bearing the vanity licence plate "THE KRIP," in a shout-out to writer/executive producer/creator Eric Kripke.
  • In "Nightmare," Sam and Dean introduce themselves as Father Simmons and Father Frehley, the bassist and lead guitarist of the rock band KISS.
  • Early on in the series, Dean's cell number is given, and for a while the studio had it set up so that anyone dialing the number would hear Jensen Ackles reading the message: "This is Dean Winchester. If this is an emergency, leave a message. If you are calling about 11-2-83, page me with your coordinates."
  • On the Supernatural interactive website, the code to unlock the Winchesters' weapons trunk is 11-02-83 (the day their mother died).
  • The building in which the episode "Asylum" was filmed is a real closed-down asylum that is rumored to be actually haunted. Some observers have noted that certain story and stylistic elements of this episode are highly reminiscent of the Silent Hill videogames, several of which have long sequences set in sinister hospitals, with eerie, empty wheelchairs and monstrous creatures whose heads "flutter" as if in fast motion.
  • In the episode "Salvation," a meeting location is given as being at the corner of Wabash and Lake, an address used several times in the movie The Matrix.
  • The show has made several references to The X-Files. For instance, in the pilot episode, Dean jokingly addresses two FBI agents as Mulder and Scully.
  • The season finale, "Devil's Trap," features a visual reference to the movie The Shining; an axe splinters a white door in the same fashion as in the Jack Nicholson movie. In the episode "Asylum," Dean repeatedly referred to Nicholson and the movie: 'Just like my man Jack in The Shining."
  • "Bobby Singer," a friend of the family who Dean seeks out for help in the season finale, is a shout-out to executive producer Robert Singer.
  • "Hell House" is supposed to take place in Jensen Ackles' hometown of Richardson, Texas.
  • In "Faith," a minor character is named Layla, in a reference to the Derek & the Dominoes rock song.
  • November 2, the date of their mother's death, is the Day of the Dead, a Catholic celebration.
  • In "Route 666," the truck is a raised 1964 Dodge Stepside pickup truck.
  • In "Scarecrow," Dean introduces himself as John Bonham, the drummer from Led Zeppelin.
  • Jessica Lee Moore's birthday is January 24th, 1984 ("Wendigo").
  • Jessica Moore is exactly five years younger than Dean.
  • Sam Winchester's birthday is May 2nd, 1983 ("The Benders")
  • Dean Winchester's birthday is January 24th, 1979. ("The Benders")
  • In "Shadows" Meg says "I met what's-his-name, something Michael Murray at a bar." Chad Michael Murray is friends with Jared Padalecki, and they have worked together on Gilmore Girls and House of Wax.
