World champs!

Congratulations to the San Francisco Giants for sweeping the heavily favored Detroit Tigers. My fave giant, Timmy The Frak, was awesome in this series. Red Sox should build a contending team next year. For now, Celtics season begins as the underdogs.

Diablong Buang.

Here comes the first mixtape from some of the meanest anonymous rappers you might encounter this side of town. Diego Mapaminsala a.k.a. Diablong Buang presents some fine government-hate filled songs to some wicked 'stolen' beats. I enjoyed this sht as much as I enjoyed Armas Ng Lias when they first came out. How about a split then?

This sht's for free. Download it and share it. Hip-hop beats from hardcore kids are always the sht.

Good stuff: Giants going to the World Series against Detroit (should be an awesome series!), American Hardcore

Mindset is one of the best sxe bands right now. Check out their new record. Thanks to John for this awesome 2008 tour shirt.

Got a bunch of local records to review. Hopefully, I can do it soon and postit here.

Yanks down 2-0 in the ALCS with Verlander starting Game 3. Ha.


The Prince and I chillin after a Sunday afternoon practice. Good sht comin your way soon. Keep your eyes open.

Coffee Academy @ San Fernando, Pampanga.

Bystorm played last night at San Fernando alongside bands from Laguna, Manila, Tarlac, Isabel (!) and locals from Pampanga. These gigs are few and far between where you share the stage with people you rarely see. I even saw some acquaintances from ar back still keepin in touch with the corr. Awesome. Thanks for inviting us to play in your town.

On the way home, we decided to get coffee at this local coffee house called 'The Coffee Academy'. The place is pretty decent save for the presence of some Jersey Shore type douches. Good coffee though.

Pampanga tonight.

Bystorm will be hitting San Fernando, Pampanga tonight. We'll be bringing copies of the new 'Sumalangitnawa' CD and some leftover shirts. Good game between STL and WAS this morning. Still mourning on the Game 2 loss of UST from Ateneo. Currently listening to: Comeback Kid 'Wake the Dead'

Cruel Hand, Manila.

Cruel Hand from Maine, USA will be hitting Manila on December. Make sure to save the date - December 19, 2012.

Been seriously contemplating in finally stopping writing on this blog the past week. Don't really know on whether ti continue or not. Just been lacking the drive lately and thinking about a print version of a newsletter or something. Maybe. We'll know in a couple of days.

Watched Game 1 of the UST-Ateneo finals and the officiating sucked. No problem in losing if it happens the right way. UST will bounce back in Game 2 and take the crown in Game 3. '06 all over again.
