News Schmews


2006 World Cup final match between Italy and France was amazing! I'm sure the audience paid a fortune to get prime seats in the Berlin stadium and, man, did they get their money's worth! my only wish was that i was there to celebrate with them.

penalty shootout aside, the highlight was undoubtedly the Zidane head butting incident.

what the heck was that all about? was this a Ginebra-(insert any PBA team here) game?? (my apologies to all Jawo fans :D) i waited for any flying coins or bottles but the crowd held their dignity (at least while in the stadium). now, the association is investigating the captain's, uh, unsportsmanly conduct. my sister told me that, apparently, Materazzi provoked Zidane by saying something that bordered on the French team captain looking like a terrorist (oh, this isn't a PBA game, it's a junior high football match!!). but, of course, this could be entirely false so i better lay off on the childish side comments.

anyways, whatever it was, Zidane ended his career in style

and the Italians still had their last laugh. while carrying that golden cup, too.

Rocking On With Supernova

Dilana, the intense rocker chick with the big, raspy voice is my automatic favorite after watching the pilot episode of Rockstar: Supernova. her rendition of Lithium (Nirvana) was spine-tingling. and she did not disappoint with her own arrangement and performance of the classic, Ring Of Fire by the legendary Johnny Cash. she really is one of a kind.

it would be cool to have a female vocalist for Supernova, right? :)


knew it!

Chris Daughtry just signed up for a record deal with Clive Davis' production company. he actually beat Elliot and Kat to that oh-so-coveted record deal (i left Taylor out because, hello, he is the reigning American Idol).

it's truly gratifying to know that Chris' talent didn't go unnoticed. he was even offered a spot as Fuel's vocalist but he declined (a smart move, if you ask me). he's currently forming his own band and working on his album, which will be released at the end of this year.

rock on!

More Than Meets The Eye

the Transformers are back!

i can't believe they're finally making a
movie (not a cartoon) of my all-time favorite childhood cartoon! i'm so excited to see the whole gang in their CGI glory. check out imdb for the complete cast list.

who were your favorite Autobots? i was always fond of
Jazz, Ironhide, and Bumblebee (and they're all in the movie!!). the only Decepticon i liked was Starscream, and only because he was funny everytime he was pissed off by his boss (shudder) or Optimus Prime and his guys. will the Dinobots make an appearance? who will prevail in the end? will there be a sequel? will Laserbeak be a CD instead of a cassette tape? (hey, they better catch up with the generation, you know)

July 4, 2007 is such a long wait!

Captain Jack Is Back!

and, boy, is he back!

Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest just broke box office records with the biggest opening in history. our favorite swashbuckling anti-hero just bumped Spiderman off the plank.

i actually thought Superman would reign in the charts but i guess my Spidey senses needed fine tuning.

and speaking of the Man of Steel...

Look, Up In The Sky! It's A Bird! It's A Plane! It's Superman...And His Girlfriend

sorry to disappoint all the
Brandon Routh fans out there but the star of Superman Returns is taken.


ok ladies, you can stop screaming/crying hysterically now.

Courtney Ford is both his on- and off-screen partner, the lucky gal. she and Brandon are starring in the indie flick, Denial.

hmm, i wonder how she's taking his sudden rise to heartthrob status. of course, if she was me, i wouldn't mind. much. :D

she looks Asian, no? weeelll, maybe i still have a chance if, you know, things don't work out between the couple...oh wait. she's chinky-eyed.

oh well, a girl can dream right? >:)
