ABC Family’s Wildfire… in Fremont?

Its funny how ABC Family’s Wildfire paints the Bay Area as some kind of country/open land… I never knew there were tons of ranches in Fremont… lol

Review Shortcuts: Sandara Park and Hero Angeles in Can This Be Love

HAPPY FATHER’S DAY

I’m very full… lol… but being Filipino and having a family party, that’s understandable…


Finally got to watch CAN THIS BE LOVE… Typical ABS-CBN romantic comedy… especially with Hero and Sandara… Its their first headlining movie… And of course, it was the sweet, filled with kilig moments type of movie… with the mandatory crying scenes and fight… Anyway, I’m a Hero and Sandara fan… even though they’re “having problems” now… lol…
It was great seeing Roxanne in a movie… She was very good, especially in the scene where she slaps Joross… 🙂 … I always thought Hero and Roxanne would’ve made a better loveteam… SCQ2’s Paw Diaz and Aaron Villaflor were in the movie too… I don’t even know who they are… lol… Tirso Cruz was in the movie too, which was a surprise…
So good movie… you should watch it… but with the knowledge and an appreciation for what Filipino movies are like and can be… 😉

The most memorable quote:
Tita Tancing: “Anak ya nang youngest sister ko, si Louie. Naku, nag hihintay na lang yong petition yan. Kasi, yung American citizenship ng kapatid ko, approvahan na. Pupunta sa ‘States’… excited na nga yan eh…”
Louie: “Ayaw ko doon… si mommy na man yong gusto pumunta doon eh…
Tita Tancing: “Anong ma gagawa mo kung gusto ng mommy mo?”
Louie: “Iinis ‘ko sa mga ”Cano’…”
Tita Tancing: “Naku… Iinis sa mga ”Cano’? Hip-Hop ka ng Hip Hop”

(in English… though obviously not translated word for word… I’m just copying the subtitles…) its funnier in Tagalog though…
Tita Tancing: “He’s Louie, the child of our youngest sister. He’s just waiting for his petition papers. My sister’s American citizenship has just been approved. He’ll be going to the US soon, he’s so excited.”
Louie: “I don’t want to go… It’s just my mom who wants me to.”
Tita Tancing: “What can you do if that’s what your mother wants?”
Louie: “I don’t like Americans.”
Tita Tancing: “You don’t like them but you keep singing hip hop!”

and my new favorite expression: “Gots me?” or “Gots mo?” with the reply “Gots ko”… lol

Lost, Alias and Power Rangers DinoThunder

LOST SEASON FINALE ABC
OMG… “The Others” appear out of nowhere… that was “Dark Shadows” freaky… I was expecting them to say that they were all already dead or something, they looked like it… Taking Walt? wow… what are they going to do to him? and then The Others blowing up the raft…

I think that was the only major twist tonight… we didn’t get to see what was inside the hatch… just a long passage/tunnel/thing into the ground… And the monster? what the hell was that black smoke? Is the dinosaur a witch or something and can transform into a puff of smoke?

Overall, it was still an awesome episode…

ALIAS SEASON FINALE ABC
We get back to the Rambaldi stuff… and that big red ball exploding into water like in season one’s finale with Vaughn getting stuck in the room after that red ball exploded… those infected zombies were pretty freaky too… were they supposed to bring on the end of the world? So the small device was just a blueprint of sorts for the big device? I get it now…

And I was saying to myself… “wow… is Alias going to have a happy ending for once?” and of course, here comes Vaughn saying it isn’t his real name and then some truck hits them from the side… that took me completely by surprise, I jumped out of my seat…

JJ ABRAMS is a genius… a pure genius… man I wish I could be like him…

Yes!!! POWER RANGERS: DINOTHUNDER is back on Weekdays on ABC Family (beginning June 13th)
Even though I have all the episodes anyway, it’ll be nice to see it back on ABCFam… what a damn good show… (but it would’ve been better if Conner and Kira hooked up… geez)

The Contender Series Finale

THE CONTENDER SERIES FINALE
There better be a rematch… and it better not depend on whether or not NBC is happy with the damn ratings…
I’ve been rooting for Peter Manfredo, Jr. since the very beginning and again, I was just speechless at why he wasn’t fighting his best… I only saw a few good punches, and he is capable of so much more… man was I pissed… One of the things that’s really annoyed me with all the Contenders, and maybe its just the way they edit the episodes, but its their inability to follow-up a good punch.
Damn… I still wish I was in Vegas though… what it must have felt like in that arena tonight (regardless of Justin and Cameron being there… at least they were rooting for Peter, it seemed like)… earlier today, Jimmy Lange won which is good… but Bonsante vs. Ishe Smith turned out to be one dirty fight… WTF is up with Bonsante? geez…
I would have prefered Jesse winning the Bronze, but oh well… and Peter better get a shot at a rematch long before Alfonso gets to fight Mora…

Veronica Mars, Lost, Alias, Revelations, The Contender

VERONICA MARS SEASON FINALE UPN

YES! Duncan and Veronica are NOT brother and sister…. so now they can go back to being a legitimate couple… He was sooo at the door at the end of the episode… So the wierd movie actor guy killed her becuase she had the disgusting sex tapes… how Hollywood… lol… The last scenes of the episode were scary… Veronica in the ice box was like Sydney in a coffin on an episode of ALIAS this season… I thought Aaron Echolls almost losing his arm to Backup and then getting hit by a truck was both funny and very random… anyway, UPN better move VM to another timeslot becuase I’m getting a little tired of taping it… lol


LOST ABC

Hmm… nothing too shocking… Walt was being his wierd self… Kate has some kind of freaky supernatural power too… she killed her mother? by touching her hand… or maybe she had a needle or poison or something, I dunno… Nothing too special really…


ALIAS ABC
Haven’t seen it yet, but Sloane’s wife is back for one episode… her death episode was one of the best… Anyway… Lena Olin finally stopped being stubborn and greedy and is finally back as Irina Derevko next week… lol

REVELATIONS NBC

Oh man, I was screaming “RUN THOSE FREAKS OVER!” Why couldn’t they have just run over those satanists with the tank? They had to go out and actually fire their weapons… darn… and of course more eerie stuff… Olivia’s death was so sad… the Sister going to see where they took her and then her seeing them taking her heart out… and then Olivia being led to heaven by the Doc’s daughter… wow… and then the last scene with Hawk walking into fire… geez… next week is the finale… should be amazing…


THE CONTENDER NBC

I hope Manfredo wins it all… I am so glad Jesse beat that cocky Alfonso… His daughter was pretty sad though…

Goblet of Fire Looks Freakin’ Awesome

Damn… this movie looks freakin’ awesome…







Hmm… Krum looks like Orlando Bloom, but I remember when there were rumors that Orlando was going to be Cedric… lol…

Best Contender of the Season

THE CONTENDER
THE. BEST. EPISODE. OF. THE. SEASON.
What a fight… I would’ve prefered Manfredo and Gilbert meet in the final 4 instead of the elite 8… but still, it was an amazing fight… I wouldn’t have expected Joey Gilbert to come alive in the 3rd and 4th round especially after getting his ribs mashed up in the 1st… He really does have a big heart, a lot of determination… Peter Manfredo, I still don’t know why he hasn’t been fighting at his best… He should’ve have beaten his last 3 opponents easier than he had (and of course, he should’ve won against Alfonso in the first round of the tournament). Anyway, that was the best fight of the series, definitely… just an amazing fight…
I’ve rooted for Manfredo since the beginning and I really can’t root for anyone else… maybe Sergio Moya or Jesse Brinkley… not really for Alfonso… and definitely not for Anthony Bonsante…
I wish I could go to the finale, but $175 each for tickets!!!! Darn…

Altar Server Training 2005

ALTAR SERVER TRAINING 2005
Man, some of the kids at Holy Angels are either bipolar or have an intense sugar high… It was crazy, and once again I was such a bad teacher… I didn’t really teach them anything, I couldn’t even get them to sit still… lol… The first group I had was soo bored and couldn’t wait to get to Pat in the sacristy… the second group was so hyper that they couldn’t sit still… it was insane…
And they actually corrected me by saying that baseball was taken away by the school in 2001… umm… Holy Angels has not had any sports other than basketball for years… I rememeber when I almost joined track in 6th grade, but that was cancelled when no one signed up… and volleyball was gone by 5th grade… now they concentrate efforts on dance…

KRYSTALA SERIES FINALE AZN/TFC
Damn… that sucked so bad… what the hell was that, I was expecting ABS-CBN to pull out all the stops (meaning, step up the special effects) for the finale of the first ever “Superserye” … It was wierd… all of a sudden the dead villains return and fight… okay… it was weak… but what’s worse is now AZN is airing Game Ka Na Ba at 4:30PM… ugh I hate Kris Aquino she is freakin’ annoying…
CAN THIS BE LOVE? Starring HERO ANGELES & SANDARA PARK! on DVD this May!

PASSIONS NBC
PRECIOUS!!! She was on the show on Wednesday… I don’t know if it was a different orangutan or if it was BamBam, but it was great seeing her (him) again… soooo funny… and Letterman showed another clip of Precious this week…

CALCULUS SHCP
FOUR! Calculus tests in 2 hours… damn, it was like the AP exam on speed… lol… It was one of those times where I think I did well and I end up failing… lol… whatever, its okay… at least I got it over with… lol

SONGS FOR THE WEEKEND
HEAVEN (LIVE, TMF Awards Performance) DO featuring WESTLIFE
DJ DON’T STOP JASMINE TRIAS
I PROMISED MYSELF A*TEENS (they always have the best music videos, this one was probably the best I’ve ever seen… so good)
THAT’S THE WAY LOVE IS BILLY CRAWFORD

Shortcuts for the Week

Just quickies for the week…
THE OFFICE NBC
This was probably the funniest episode yet… so many hilarious jokes…

VERONICA MARS UPN
I think Logan raped Veronica… Duncan is the “good guy” that “the girl” (Veronica) always ends up with in the end… and what’s up with Logan’s dad? and Wallace’s mom? This is a great show… UPN just needs to move it to another night 🙂

ALIAS ABC
I hear Rambaldi’s back, I’ll have to tape this week’s episode again… And Jennifer Garner married to Ben Affleck? ewe

REVELATIONS NBC
This week’s episode was better… and more eerie… I can see why the show is broken up into 6 one hour episodes instead of 3 two hour parts…

SURVIVOR: PALAU CBS
Another quitter? Geez… I actually liked Janu, the others were so mean when they laughed at her… but at least Stephenie is still in… GO STEPHENIE!

THE APPRENTICE NBC
No man purse for Alex this week… I really hope Tana wins…

Y&R CBS
In an otherwise overdramatic and boring show, JT and Mac are so sweet together… lol… not to mention they are one of Daytime’s hottest looking couples 🙂

PR: SPD ABCF
The only good thing about this season? … Dr. Kat Manx…

THE NFL DRAFT ESPN
Let’s just hope that the Niners make “good decisions” as Scudder would say…

The Contender, Saturday Night Live, All That, NFL

THE CONTENDER NBC
Well… the West won again… I was definitely rooting for East’s Jimmy Lange, but Joey Gilbert had the heart, as Sly and Sugar Ray said… hopefully they vote to bring Jimmy back, but I think they gave it away in the promo for next week that Ahmed would be brought back since they had him fighting in the promo, unless it was from a previous episode… unlikely though… darn, Jimmy didn’t really get a chance to prove himself, I was surprised that he didn’t fight better than he did.

SATURDAY NIGHT LIVE NBC
Well, Tom Brady isn’t the best actor… lol… he should stick to TDs… lol… Amy Poehler’s Caitlin character is hilarious, I like her…

ALL THAT CLASSIC
Wow… so the 10th Anniversary is coming up… and I guess Nickelodeon is showing the classic episodes in anticipation… and man, what memories, I remember “Randy and Mandy” and all that chocolate… and Ross Perot… and how Josh Server and Alisa Reyes would always play characters that were romantically involved… lol… and the best one, Lori Beth and “Vital Information”… classic… the new All That sucks so much

SUNDAY NIGHT FOOTBALL NBC
Well… football will FINALLY be in Primetime and not go past midnight for once… well technically for us, it never mattered, but at least now all of the country will get truly primetime football… and being an NBC supporter most of the time, I’m glad they’ll get a much needed boost now with the NFL… I was definitely shocked by the news today, I knew that Disney (ABC/ESPN) was working out a new contract with the NFL, but I didn’t think that it would all work out like this… good stuff though… GO NINERS! Make GOOD decisions this weekend!

And if you haven’t go check out Jasmine’s new songs! 🙂
