  • Set Up A Bleeping Cheese Trap, Lloydie, and Other Things

  • Inviting HIV

    I rarely go somewhere far for vacations basically due to lack of funds, and my goal is to be walking-on-water-solitary-trip-to-Batanes level, but for this leave, which will end in a couple of days, I went to Baguio because the sun… Read More ›

  • Damn Too Many Doctors

    And in this month’s Green Lantern… …I have to run and no time to write a review, all I can say is that it has the best Green Lantern cover of all time, featuring Agent Orange hungrily hugging his orange… Read More ›

  • Heavy Rains! Meh.

    So it rains. I’m not impressed. It’s still bleeping hot, and the rain lasts for only ten seconds such that when you walk out from an airconditioned room hot humid air slaps your face senseless. If this were the 80’s… Read More ›

  • Concern For The Month

    This is not the time, to dwell on family problems, relationship problems, social problems. We don’t want to involve ourselves too much on death, the deaths we caused, the guilts thereafter, and your accusing looks. We have no time to… Read More ›
