Third day of a long weekend. Just came back from a far-flung home province of Cavite last night and battled and hour-long fiesta-induced traffic at Tanzucks, Cavite. Back and feet are still aching. Time to relax.
We have SDB (Sir Denver Bystorm for ya fools!) bringin out this very cool Judge 'What It Meant' shirt. Good colorway and I particularly like the back photo of a furious Mike Judge and Jimmy Yu looking tto spin kick someone while playing his bass guitar.
Currently watching: Angels @ Texas (Weaver just sucked and was tagged for 7 runs).

Very cool colorway of the infamous Trash Talk 'Destroy' shirt. Simple. Loud. Trash Talk is awesome. Check them out if you have been living under a rock. No news from them for a while now so maybe we can expect something big to drop or they will just drop off the map.
I was supposed to go to Ten02 last night to hang out with friends and check out The Crimson Cartel show but I was f'n TOO STRESSED at work from morning till nightime. Even when it was over, I could still feel the effects. I'm not one to whine about the effects of work and stress but this one is relatively sh*tty so i figured f*ck it. I tried to urge myself to go but I couldn't muster enough energy. Dropped like a sack of potatoes when I went home and woke up to this rainy Saturday morning.
Good stuff: reading and drinking coffee on a start of a rainy day LONG weekend, Champion's 'Promises Kept' blasting out of the speakers.

The Crimson Cartel will be playing their 1st year anniversary show this Friday at Ten02. Hopefully, these guys are done with their demo and will be available at this show. Saw them last time at Cavite with a new line-up. Hopefully, this one stays. Oh and Prayer of Endurance from Baguio City and Half the Battle will be playing as well so check them out.

Good sht right here. Bacon mozza-melt with vegie pattie. Ma'rouf got a double vegie patty. Can't understand how they finish that. A single pattie is too much. Really awesome stuff though. Best eaten while hanging out after a double-dose of practice. Pic by Led.
Forgot to take a pic of the two (2) nacho baskets with cheese and salsa which were taken BYSTORM.
Currently watching: Phineas and Ferb. Funny sht.

Some more New Bombay stuff here. More chili than usual which makes it all the more awesome. Burns a little though. Not really sure if any shows are happening over the weekend. Will look into that. More practice tomorrow. Hell yes.

Yeah, I was a little surprised myself. But pretty cool design though. Cartoonish Mao with the FB logo on top. Good look. But this thing is huge for a L size shirt. Even for the big shirt wearing me. Bought this one during their recent tour here. More Pinoy punk rock bands based in other countries should visit and play for the home team. Just sayin. Check out the flyer below for the Forum Anniv show happening on September 10, 2011.

It's that time of the year again when the boys and girls of www.diypinoyhcpunk.com steps to the plate and organizes the annual forum show which always turn out to be one big party. THE CAULFIELD CULT from Singapore will also be playing that night so there's an added bonus of checking them out aside from the wicked line-up. Plus prizes will be given away at that show, shirts, CDs, etc. So make sure you get your @$$ to this show.

HTB - photo by Mel Dolorico.
Awesome show last night! HTB and the Pag-asa crew delivered as promised. Good stuff from the show:
1. HTB reunion (nuff said!)
2. Play opening with 'In My Eyes', the crowd erupted as they did in their entire set
3. Bystorm playing after a few months (finally!)
4. Nuclear Punishment, Towards The End and all the other bands that played last night and the crowd who hanged out last night!
5. Best part : after party dance eruption (probably some videos in youtube right now...kidding)
Not so good stuff:
1. show started LATE. 930 or 10 I think. Not cool man.
2. that f'n police wannabe at Daang Hari. Made me lose my appetite.
All in all, it was a great night. Got to see some old friends. Plus it's Cavite. Fck yeah.

This is a book that I've wanted to feature here for a long time. A book dedicated to the 2004 Red Sox who finally won the World Series after 86 years of misery. Written by Stephen King (yes, THE Stephen King of Horror stories) and Stewart O' Nan, they documented the entire 2004 season from Spring Training to the duck parade when the RS finally lifter the Curse of the Bambino. Down 3-0 in the ALCS against the Yanks, the Sox achieved something no one n the baseball world has done and win 4 straight to win the series and proceeded to win the WS. Got this at bargain bins at Book Sale. Continue supporting that shop.
Good stuff: TB beating NY on a gloomy Saturday morning, Bystorm playing later tonight and hanging out with the rest of the crew. Life is good.
Half The Battle's playing tonight and this shirt is just appropriate for a cool Saturday morning and buying stuff for next month. Awesome back print too. I featured this shirt (Led) earlier but this one's a different colorway. Athletic grey shirts never goes out of style.
Currently listening to:Fire and Ice 'Collection'.
Here's the map for the Half The Battle show later in Molino, Bacoor, Cavite. Check it out. The name of the club is Hyperzone just beside Statefields School. Pretty easy to spot they say. This is the first time Bystorm will be playing in a couple of months so we're pretty excited. See you there!
Currently watching: Tampa Bay beating up on CC and the Yanks.

Check out this little vegie resto called Green Wok @ Matalino St. beside Quezon City Hall. Pretty tough to spot though but if you like Filipino vegie food then maybe you can hang with their style. This menudo concoction tastes like it was from a local carinderia. Good. Not great. They also have vegie burgers and stuff, gotta try it sometime.
Currently watching: The Godfather (never fails.)

Bystorm will be playing its first show in almost 2 or 3 months and we'll be playing with our new guitarist - Hubs - of Vex fame. Hopefully we do a god job. Really miss playing for sometime now. And of course, it's Half the Battle's first show in two (2) years so you're bound to see something special. It's also FREE in case you're asking. If you live far from Molino, Bacoor, Cavite, use your entrance money for fare. It's gonna be an awesome night.
Good stuff: Red Sox beating CC and the Yanks. Ellsbury's in a hot streak. Awesome time hanging out yesterday. Lots of music and good food and funny sht to boot. Thanks to Easy for my hat and shirts!

Lion of Judah has plenty of shirt designs but this one does not pop up too often. Maybe it's the weird design? Lion head on a locomotive? Cool color way though. Check out LOJ if you haven't already.
Pretty cool weather today. A little bit rainy but the friendly rain and not the storm/typhoon type. So hangin out later will be a great idea.
Currently watching: Game 1 of a weekend series between NY and the Red Sox. Lester's mowing them down right now.

Some more goodies from New Bombay. From the looks of the resto, you'd think it would be f'n expensive but NB is pretty reasonable. Perfect for a rainy day. Spices rumbling in your tummy. After which, you'll be most likely "bringin it down" with the hammer you've got.
Currently listening to: Judge 'Bringin it Down' (what else?)
