Diskoiraa (Spain) shows this week.

This almost flew under the radar of many local kids. DISKOIRAA from Spain will be playing two (2) shows, one in Pasig City tomorrow and another one at Quezon City c/o the Flowergrave crew. Hopefully, there's no more rain on these shows so more people can get to see them!

Just like Salty in this pic, the rest of the Red Sox are reeling right now by losing a lot of games in September where we saw a 10 game wild card lead reduced to nothing.

The situation : 2 games left, tied with Tampa Bay for the Wild Card. Can the Red Sox pull it off? I BELIEVE.

On local news, the winds of typhoon Pedring is nothing short of devastating. Everyone, be careful. Stay at home.

Living Hell.

This is the back of a really good Living Hell shirt. LH were pretty big back then but just got lost somewhere or hit it pretty big for me. Either way, this is a pretty wicked "Holy Terror" design with an equally wicked quote. The front is just a repeated Living Hell logo across the chest.

Review: Sunday Driven Holiday 'Ironic Humor' Demo.

This has been on my playlist for the last two (2) weeks and there is good reason for it. This is the new project of Darwin from Richard Collier. If you have at least a small liking for Richard Collier, you're gonna love this new project. It takes off from where Richard Collier left off. This demo contains six (6) songs including a cover of 'The Killing Moon' from Echo and the Bunnymen. Really good, catchy songs. The quality of the recording is pretty good but with a better recording, this would have been an instant classic. Saw them play once and was really impressed. They'll be doing a few shows near you so get at it.

Burger and rice.

Vegie burger steak and rice courtesy of Green Halo. I think this is by far the only thing that I actually enjoy at GH. Really big serving too.

Southside Kings.

Laguna's long-running PILEDRIVER recently released their latest output 'Southside Kings' and a release party is happening tonight at Amnesia Bar in Laguna. Go out and check it if you can and grab a copy of their new album. Support your local scene. I need to get one myself. Probably in the Divit show happening in a couple of weeks.

Iron Age.

Tough times. Things are hard to deal with right now. But you gotta do what you gotta do.

Iron Age. Youngblood Records. The Ipod cam is cool. Good apps thanks to Danj.

Wake = 200.

Finally, Tim Wakefield pitched well enough and the offense erupted for 18 runs to back him up as he nailed the 200th win of his career. What a way to break out of an offensive slump the past few games to put the Rays back in contention. Time to sustain the momentum.

Crapsalad does it again.

Sannee compiled some of the footage he took last night in one video. Check out what happened last Saturday at Ten02. Great job again by Mr. Crapsalad!

Still chILL.

Definitely had one of the best Sundays for some time. The show last night was AMAZING. I would have posted a review but I can't find any decent pic or video floating in the web. Some of the highlights:

1. KAKTUS KARUKA and SUNDAY DRIVEN HOLIDAY nailed it last night. Best sets IMHO. The Caulfield Cult was a pleasant surprise as well.
2. F'n games all became alcohol drinking contests!
3. Hanging out the whole night with friends and those I haven't seen for a while.
4. Papajohn's after practice.
5. Making plans for Still Ill and some probable upcoming shows. Will keep you posted!

Some letdowns:

1. Some bands not being able to make it.
2. The god-damned RAIN.
3. Missing out on some sets.

BTT: This is the official on-field cap of the Boston Red Sox which a good friend got for me. The Red Sox has been slumping lately but hopefully they'll rebound with Lester on the mound.

UST is in the Final Four of the UAAP Basketball but settled for 4th place due to losing to NU today and FEU beating DLSU. UST vs. Ateneo in the semifinal round. Major upset coming to the Eagles who choked on the probability of a sweep yesterday.

Not doing anything on a Friday night? Check out this show happening somewhere in Las Pinas City. The Caulfield Cult from Singapore is laying. Should be a nice warm-up for tomorrow night's show at Ten02.

Forgiveness Denied 'Reunion' shirt.

This is the other colorway of the classic Forgiveness Denied 'Reunion' show. The more popular color is the white tee. The show itself was one of the best I've ever been in. Lots of planned and impromptu reunions happened that night. If you were there, you know it was pretty special. Saturday's show promises to be something like that. Be there early.

Currently watching: Wakefield still looking for win no. 200 as the Red Sox battle the Blue Jays in Toronto.

Review: Ginseng Luzon 'Bit' CD-R.

I've already made a lengthy review of this CD-R but forgot to post it until my hard disk crashed two weeks ago. And just when I was about to do another review, I found out I lost the lyric/info sheet of this record. Not cool. Anyway, this is a collection of the recordings of GL. Some studio and other live recordings. Definitely influenced by Dischord (re: Fugazi) bands and some SST artists. If you've seen them live, you'll know how passionate these guys are about their work. As I've said earlier, I lost my copy of the lyric sheet which also contains their contact info. Anyone care to pitch in on how people can get a copy of this one?

Creamy Pesto.

We got a good variation of pesto sauce for all you pasta afficionados. This one's not your usual basil and cashew nut blend of pesto but a bit creamier than usual. Made it taste better definitely. Got this one at Carlo's Pizza. They have a few branches but its worth it.

Currently watching: UST vs. Adamson (UST has a good chance of making it to the Final Four but they must show that they can beat the top 3 teams to make it all the way).

Just saw this flyer for this show this Saturday. No address on the flyer though. Anyone care to pitch in where this is happening? Staid, HTB and Isvarah is playing so check it out if you got the time.

Good stuff: Beckett beating NY, Fast Times 'Where were you?'
