I've finally transferred this page to my own server! So I will no longer be updating this page, and instead head on over here:
See you there!:)

Sorry, Antony, for running a little late on this story I'm drawing, but damn, I think I got carried away with this 1 page spread. I just love drawing carnage. You'll understand once you see it. I hope to upload this sucker tonight.
While I was drawing, Lost In Space the movie was showing on HBO. Hey, this movie is FUN. The action really doesn't stop. And Gary Oldman is simply hilarious as Dr. Smith.
I'll soon be trasferring this blog to my own server...I'm just trying to figure out how to work out the kinks...

Well, it's Valentine's day. Here I am on my drawing board drawing a whole page of absolute bloody brutal carnage. It's FUN! A lot has been said about Valentines day, that its nothing more than a commercial holiday designed to con you out of your money, and that everyday should be Valentines day. Hell, even I bashed on Valentines day in Wasted. But that was just my state of mind back then.
Well, so what if it's just a commercial holiday? And I know it's better if everyday were Valentines day. Think of it like your birthday, or father or mother's day. Or your town fiesta. Everyone should have a special day. A day to celebrate. Even though love should be celebrated everyday, I think it should have a special day as well. Commercial or not, if two people find value in this day which brings them closer and strengthens their relationship, what does it matter? 
If you get nothing out of this day, well that's all right. Go on and just live your life. That's cool. But for you to bash everyone who finds meaning in this day, well, I think that just makes you sad and pathetic.

Saturday! Just got back from Alabang with lots of cool stuff. I got some CDs like The Best of Lightning Seeds, Songs From the Buffet Table by Barbie's Cradle, and a couple of Beach Boys CDs. What can I say? I'm on a fun music trip lately.
I also got an issue of the newest Pulp. It's got a mini interview with yours truly! With a my caricature drawn by Arnold Arre. Wasted part 5 included!
And hey, there's this guy who writes letters to Pulp who hates my guts. Called me a poser. Says I'm pissing him off. Hey Aaron Palileo, if you write in PULP telling people you don't like me, that's cool man. That's your opinion. But to bash me two issues in a row, I gotta start to ask. What's your fucking problem? Did I kill any rappers in Wasted? You're starting to make me wish I had.

I've rediscovered an old favorite of mine. "PURE" by the Lightning Seeds. I have it on mp3 and i'm just playing it over and over. The next time I'm in Manila, I'm going to scour the record stores for the CDs.
Still working on City of Light, as well as January. Thank God for an extended deadline on City. I certainly needed it because I felt really bad a while back.
I just won a hardcover of League of Extraordinary Gentlemen at a local online auction. Can't wait to see it!

I really love walking, specially in the early morning, and late afternoon. Soon after I wake up, usually around 6am, I put on my walking shoes and go out. Near the house is a huge lake with a complete cemented road that goes around it. It runs for some 4 kilometers and makes for some nice sightseeing. I've seen a lot of remarkable things during these walks, the most memorable being this gigantic chicken that lives there. I tell you, you've never seen a huge chicken until you've seen this one. On occasion I would see a large snake cross the road. One day a cow was standing right on the road with no way to pass around it. Everytime I try to go around, the thing would follow me, daring me to pass him. I ran. And so did the cow! Good thing he was tied down. Of course, the best thing about this place are the sights! I never get bored whenever I walk there.
