Finally some Hellfest IV shots

Finally got hold of my usb cable for my digicam and now I'm able to upload some of the shots at HELLFEST IV, its me and the band...(ill be posting some tomorrow of other bands present)

...its in true metal underground fashion with the ragtag backdrop and makeshift stage 
(or lack of it, notice that me and the audience are leveled) and PA systems without sound monitors for the performers.

if there was a Da Vinci Code Book 2

Just a little blog filler here, someone forwarded this to me via email and I find it rather amusing and I just wanna share it to all of you's. Hope nobody gets offended, just for kicks. If there was ever a book 2 of Dan Brown's Da Vinci Code, some of them would be the likeliest premise.



1. He went into his father's business.
2. He lived at home until the age of 33.
3. He was sure his mother was a virgin, and his mother was sure he was God.


1. He never got married.
2. He never held a steady job.
3. His last request was a drink.

...Puerto Rican:

1. His first name was Jesus.
2. He was always in trouble with the law.
3. His mother did not know who his father was.


1. He talked with his hands.
2. He had wine with every meal.
3. He used olive oil.


1. He called everybody brother.
2. He liked Gospel.
3. He couldn't get a fair trial.


1. He never cut his hair.
2. He walked around barefoot all the time.
3. He started a new religion.

But the most compelling evidence of all - proof that Jesus was a WOMAN:

1. He had to feed a crowd at a moment's notice when there was no food.
2 . He kept trying to get a message across to a bunch of men who just didn't get it.
3. Even when he was dead, He had to get up because there was more work for him to do.

Hellfest IV has come and gone

Last April 11 and 12 CEMP gig Hellfest was in full swing at the Zzubu Rockbar, Colon Sts. and in totality the gig was a success, as usual. A lot of the regular local metalheads supported the gig and from day 1 and 2 the venue was swarmed in tshirt darkness (black shirts, really), banging heads, RedHorse™ and the sweet smell of the stinking restroom filling the air. Enough to make any pure blooded metalhead content in this lifetime, uhmmm, maybe a days worth of exhilaration. I was planning on posting pics of what my humble digicam took but unfortunately I still can’t upload it to the PC because I was drunk on day 1 that I left the digicam’s USB cable (Sony usb cable sucks, other mini usb cables from other brands won’t work, believe me, I tried) and my spare electric guitar at my friends ride. So, the pics will have to wait soon enuff.

We played our set on Day 2 of Hellfest at around 11:00 p.m. and there were still five or so bands after to consummate the event which ended at around 3:00 a.m. (if I’m not mistaken, I was only there for about 30 minutes after our set). The only guest bands I have witnessed were Death by Boredom and Bandilang Itim both from Dumaguete and both bands were all tight with there set. The local bands were in full swing also, Demise was pounding there way to their set and the crowd banged till broken. I saw the set of Fallen Angel, Impostura and deathmetal poster boy Enjun and his band Kasakit. To be honest, our set during Day 2 of Hellfest was not our finest or tightest and got me wishing that I had an undo or escape button in hand. I couldn’t really here myself and our guitarist play, even our drummer (Chuck is back with the band, hopefully, long live Chuck!) was having a really hard time hearing our instrument due mainly to the fact that there were no sound monitors provided upfront, all the sound systems were blasting towards the crowd. It just wasn’t our day. All the excitement just burst to thin air from then on. Well, every dog has his day I guess. Maybe next gig would fare better.

Pics will soon be on the next post, now where’s that damn USB cable…

Peekaboo : My Webcomic Doppelganger

I love comics and specially comic strips and the advent of web comics made it possible for me to access it readily unlike before I have to make do of the available comic strips syndicated by the national newspapers here or wait for the collected editions. I usually collect Gary Larson's Farside and am into Charles Schultz Peanuts and Bill Watersson's Calvin and Hobbes.  Locally, I like Manix Abrera's Kiko Machine and Pol Medina's Pugad Baboy. Nowadays I browse and search for any interesting web comics and read the reviews about it. I even add them to my bloglist for easy reference and help promote it. I was very amused that I happen to come across the Outer Circle Web Comics by Steve Napierski because one of his recurring characters, a fat slob named Peekaboo, almost kinda mirrors me physically. Beard and all, really. I even let my friends validate it. The above image pictures my typical day at home after office, glued to my PC . Just wanna share a snipet of the strip here. Kudos to Steve for making such entertainingly great comics.  Check out his site.
