Manny Pacquiao Destroys David Diaz in Round 9

Manny Pacquiao totally mauled David Diaz in 9 rounds to become the first Asian and Filipino lightweight champion! (Mind you the Great Flash Elorde tried -- and failed -- twice. So this is a big deal. )

Can you believe that? That's four titles he now holds:

1. WBC Lightweight Champion
2. WBC Junior Lightweight Champion,
3. former world champion at IBF Super Bantamweight, and
4. WBC Flyweight divisions.

Watch this video to see how David Diaz is softened up even more (round 8) and knocked out (round 9). The man fought a valiant fight and no one can say that he chickened out -- though most would probably say too that he was completely, totally, utterly outclassed, outboxed, and out of his league. Pacquiao had a Sunday stroll in the park.

Painting with Light: PiKAPiKA THE MOVIE : GO! GO! PiKAPiKA!!~

Beautiful work with glowsticks / flashlights.

Can you imagine the coordination and practice this involved! I once tried to do some light doodles myself and had someone shoot the pics --- needless to say, it was very difficult to even get one decent shot of one person's doodle. Imagine then not just one person but twenty, and with doodles that are alive and moving from location to location.

This is AMAZING.

The Controversial JCPenney Speed Dressing Viral

This spot won a Lion at Cannes 2008. But why did client (JC Penney) and agency (Saatchi & Saatchi) disavow it?

Watch it and see for yourself.


do you think this really was
A. an unauthorized, unsolicited video --


B. a video created by them for the specific purpose of entering into the awards shows, creating some PR/Buzz/news articles, in the hope of enticing enough people to take a second look at JCPenney?

I think it's B. Bad idea though.

JCPenney -- What good does it do your brand?

Parents -- What do you think of JCPenney now?

... BUT, more importantly,

Teenagers -- what do YOU think of JCPenney now?

My Wishlist: Tokyo Toy Show 2008

I want...

1. Air Shock Battle Beam Sabre
2. Fur Real Golden Retriever
3. Home Jukebox

My birthday is in two months. : )

Some of those toys are really weird though. Would you (or anyone you know) want a dancing flower? Or a Japanese-speaking Mickey (unless your friend is Japanese, of course)? Or a USB Owl?

Star Wars Jedi Church

I found this funny. It reminded me of what a friend once said about Star Wars having pantheistic overtones!

Where the Hell is Matt? (2008)

42 countries, 14 months after he started, and a cast of thousands later... here's Matt Harding's third dancing video.

The message: none really, according to Matt. "I just dance," he said on his site.

But there is some kind of learning to be found here. At the very least, it's that people all over the world, young or old, rich or poor are the same. Our love for the dance (no matter how silly the moves may be) equalizes us since we all have the same capacity for joy.

Reverse Graffiti: Calling on MMDA's Bayani Fernando


I know you're very frustrated with how terrible Metro Manila is becoming, especially with the lack of "urbanidad" / urbanity of many of its citizens.

How about involving ordinary people and involving them in something fun and subversive, instead of constantly frowning down upon them from your (non-campaign) billboards?

Watch the video first, Mr Fernando.

Now, here's my idea -- why not partner up with a cleaning product (Mr Muscle, maybe?) and invite all Metro Manila folk to an urban art contest. The canvas: the dirty walls near them. The medium: Mr Muscle and water. The theme: whatever you want it to be.

Everyone can get in on it, really. Plus, it'll be fun to actually "deface" public property (though in reality, they're actually cleaning it up for you). And third, it brings the reality of urban pollution in front of everyone's noses.

That's a better kind of MMDA-sponsored art, don't you think?

Playing Cards Show Why We Should Drink More Milk

This is a viral for what seems to be a user-generated content campaign for BC Dairy. Found it on Adrants.

It hasn't broken the 1500 views barrier after a week of posting on Youtube.

Would you forward this video to your friends?

How to make bread, 80's style

Strange, huh?

Kentucky Fried Cruelty

I don't like PETA. I'm not a vegetarian. Not by a long shot.

I love beef, pork, fish and chicken. Particularly fried chicken. Lots of it. I order it every time. But after watching this video, I think I may reconsider.

Of course, KFC is not the only wide-scale chicken sadist. Correction: Not KFC, but the suppliers of their chicken. I'm pretty sure all the other chicken farms treat chicken the same way. But KFC being the most recognizable as well as one of the biggest consumers in the world has to make a stand and bring standards to more humane levels. If the leader makes a change, all the rest will have to follow.

Procrastination is...

... watching this instead of getting to work right away.

Procrastination is wondering who made this and how he did it and waiting 'til the end to find out.

Procrastination is posting this and sharing it with everyone because it's bloody, brilliantly, beautifully done.

Lewis Hamilton Crashes Into Kimi Raikonnen - Canada F1 2008 pits incident

What's up, Lewis?

If Kimi and Kubica saw the light and slowed down in time, why couldn't you?

Shame, shame, shame!

You could be one of the F1 greats -- except for your moments of monumental stupidity. Like this one.

I don't like you very much --- and neither do Kimi and Fernando.

"Again and Again" -- Apple Mac Music Video

Some people really have too much time on their hands --- and we thank them for it.

This is awesome, yes?

You Don't Mess With The Zohan

Plot: "The greatest Israeli soldier" now just wants to cut hair -- and then his past life tries to catch up with him.

Verdict, based on the trailer: Hilariously silly -- but hey, it's Adam Sandler -- and who doesn't LOVE Adam Sandler? Really, man, you have to admit, you love his movies!

What Do You Want To Do Before You Die? - The Buried Life

You've got to have respect for 4 guys who don't just toss out and discuss that question over several rounds of beer. They actually go and do it in a road trip across America.

Most of us would claim work or family or school responsibilities prevent us from ever ticking off the items on our own lists --- and maybe that's because we instantly think of the big tasks on our lists. Things like "explore the Byzantine churches in Istanbul" or something like that.

But maybe we can try the easier things first. Like "make 100 people smile today".

That'd be a start.

But even before that, we need to start thinking and writing our own lists. Life is indeed too short to die with unfulfilled dreams and wishes.

What are on your lists?
