Creating Music in GarageBand is MORE FUN IN THE PH!

Play it! You’ll definitely NOT gonna believe that I DIY-ed the whole song!

GarageBand: It’s all in your imagination!

So I stumbled on Alex de Rossi’s Tumblr page and I wanted to compose songs like SHE does (she says she has a friend to collaborate with her). So what I did is… I did Musical Typing and recorded it and inserted ALL the notes I really do NOT need because there’s such thing as Piano Roll in GarageBand.

Yeah, it’s really a fail. I’m not really GOOD in arranging notes by hand (PENCIL, huh), but in GarageBand, it does the thing better. Yay Mac!

The only difference with me and Alessandra is that, she has a/n MV accompaniment. I can’t do those scribbles like she does.

Antonello Joseph’s First Death Anniversary

This is how Kei’ichiro Hirata of Osaka Monogatari looks like.

So, I’d never been a fan of AJ Perez, but of course, he’s always the cute boy-next-door we usually see in ASAP, mall shows and some TV shows. Antonello Joseph Sarte Perez in real life, has been an inspiration to everyone in the world.

Alright, so I feel again, inspired to create a new Osaka Monogatari blog post (err, story). It’s all about Akio’s settling in the Orient Pearl and y’know, Kei’s start as a showbiz person. *Sigh* I changed my mind. I might as well learn Japanese to get another bachelor’s degree, this time in Japan. I always loved that place, really. If I were to choose between Japan vs. the two superpowers, the Land of the Rising Sun would be without hesitation.

Oh, please! How I wish those two fictional characters are for real already! 😦

Well, to those who remember Antonello, let us now remember someone who has done a great achievement, although his dreams are cut short. 😦

Randomness in Showbiz

Brangelina Getting Married!

Alright, so (before we continue to our topic) Angelina is NOT naturally-skinny at all. In fact, being a model requires losing weight (HAHAH, you nailed it, Tyra Banks!). Angelina is very fleshy before she became an actress. The real reason why she’s skinny is because of stress, coming from work (name it: motherhood, shooting, hectic schedules). Oh, and I’m never a fan of skinny girls with boobies (y’know what I mean! Well, I’d spare Asia Argento because she’s got a booty).

Link 1, Link 2, Link 3, Link 4. HAHA.

Oh, so yeah. Angelina Jolie and her partner Brad Pitt are gonna tie the knot! Well, I think I’m really very happy for them because they have established a good relationship. However, there are fears that the marriage would no longer be worth their love. In societies nowadays, unmarried couples have stronger relationships than those who are married. Well, y’know the rest of d’ story right?

Pinoy Chizmax!

between anne curtis at angel locsin, mas maganda c angel. maputi lang c anne curtis. pag pina-itim mo, hindi na siya artistahin. mas lalong ma-emphasize ang bibig niyang malaki.

Agree with this one! Angel Locsin is prettier, regardless of skin color. Her features are waaaay softer than Anne Curtis’ and she looks younger. And OPKORS, compare Anne to Jasmine Curtis-Smith, Jasmine is prettier. Dapat si Jasmine ang mag-artista, because she’s not clown-y unlike her ate.

Alessandra compared to AA: Flashback

Opkors! My favorite topic about the two frank and feisty people, but it’d definitely be Alex. Alex is of course, proud of her brown skin, but just so yew guys know… why people represent pure Filipina beauties in Miss Universe if in our showbiz industry, most of our actors are half-white? I’m not really cringing on those things, but ironically, it has to mean that brown skin represents elitism, since if you compete for beauty pageants, it is GLOBAL. GLOBAL = RECOGNIZED WORLDWIDE. So Alex has a point, actually.

I love Alex! Such an interesting, genuine person. Napaka-artistic and talented pa, pero humble at hindi plastic.

And just to take note, Alessandra was UK-born, so no wonder, she speaks her mind (am I right, Felice Fawn?). However, behind the kontrabida face and aura, she’s still a comic at heart.

Life without the 550D in two weeks!

This is a VEEEEEERY sad announcement.

NO 550D in two weeks = BOO! No bokeh, NO 1/500 shutter speed and the worst: EF-S 15-85mm f/3.5-5.6 IS USM is a rare-to-find lens! Guys, I really need yo’ help (d’ lenzzzzz not d’ cam!).

So what I did was, I sent my cam to the service center (I won’t tell you where it IS, a’ryt) because the rubbah grip’s worn out. Completely OUTTA d’ system and that’s it! So I need to wait for two weeks (wait, 14 working days) before it is again, refurbished.

Life Without the 550D…

Opkors! I’m alwizzzzz camera shy! \m/

T_T Imma miss you babe! 😦

Forever a fangirl of yours, 5D. I finally met you in person. Your screen’s bigger!

Y U SO HARD TUH FIND? 😦 U hidin’? [P.S.: Where in the PH would I find THIS!?]

Before heading through my favorite Vietnamese restaurant, I bought these drinks.

ROFL we’re going to eat something… hmmm…

Crab stick mania! Now that’s what I call, “Asian!”

The shrimp exposed! Imma eat you ya’ poor thing! RAWR!

Grilled cuisine!

Whoops! HAHAHA, edit fail!

Alright, so that’s all for now. Y’all gonna see 4:3 aspect ratio rather than 3:2 aspect ratio, which suck dix! ROFL. *Wishes my 550D will really be fixed in no time HAHAHA!*

The real thing about having NO DSLR

Awwwww… there’s something that I want to tell you guys. Aside from the fact that I don’t have an SLR for two weeks, I think I have to suffer with my camera phone… but that’s OK. However, without my camera, I will feel saaaaaad. LOL drama much but… some confessions.

[off-topic shizzzzzz]

I still won’t delete my post regarding anti-Chinese sentiments. Sure, I have NOTHING against the Filipino-Chinese, but if I were Chinese, I’ll feel very ashamed of those melamine and formaldehyde thingy… dunno why but getting mad at Filipino sellers while admiring Chinese ones is just… stupid. Most Chinese are assertive as a strategy of selling things, but it’s just… WRONG. For the Filipinos, however, I personally think they respect people’s decisions. I think if I were going to be a parent, I won’t raise my children the Chinese way (thank goodness some Fil-Chi’s disregarding those things, salutes!).

Gosh. I think I have to go now.

Debate Time! Debate Time!

Dear guys,

Before starting the debate, please be reminded that foul words are forbidden. Thank you! (:

The Debate Starts… NOW!

1.) Canon EOS 5D Mark III – A Must-buy or not?

Advantages: FULL-FRAME 35mm sensor with 22.3 Megapixels, 3.2″ 3:2 1M-dot LCD monitor, 100% intelligent pentaprism viewfinder, dual CF/SD card slot, HDR feature, HD video, DIG!C 5+… and so much more!

Disadvantages: Highlight Tone Priority, Shadow Optimizer cannot be joint to one another, according to Ken Rockwell. Others include: NO articulation on LCD screen (BOO!!!), expensive (!), costs US$ 3500.00 (in fact, most Europeans need to fly to the US because almost everything’s costly in Europe, and everyone knows it, right?), NO AF in video!, doesn’t support EF-S lenses (unlike Nikon’s full-frame, I saw this before that Nikon full-frames might accept AF-S lenses… hmm…)… well, that’s all.

2.) Adobe Photoshop CS6 Beta/Extended (with Lightroom 4, DUH!)

Pro/s: New features, improved HDR something… name more…
Con/s: It’s Lightroom interface in Photoshop! BOO! Leave Lightroom alone!

3.) Back-up camera

List: Panasonic Lumix DMC-GF5, Sony Cyber-shot DSC-TX20, Sony Alpha NEX camera, and so on.

I just wanted to have a compact camera *drools*. Hahaha, I just envied Saab Magalona for some reason (she has a 55oD, but she has a compact Sony NEX, too!).

Levitating in Azure

My most creative jumpshot! Haha, yowayowa ang peg! (Yeah right no effort)

Pardon my fat-ness! Kasing-sabog ng final paper ko, but the shadowwww… xD

Maybe if people do not know just yet, the rubber grip of my camera is GONE. BOO. However, I still managed to take photographs of myself levitating.

I really DO apologize for NOT updating, because I ran out of ideas and I stayed away from my favorite hobby for so long… but don’t worry! I am saving up for the iPhone 4S, or the latest iPhone. (Despo for an Instagraaaam @_@) NAH, jez kidding.

Well, enjoy the rest of the week!
