Hello everyone! As you may have noticed, I’ve not been as active in this blog as before and for good reason. As mentioned in the title, I’ve been busy with a website and it will focus on health, fitness, and maybe a bit of financial blogging here and there.
Also, a little update: I’m no longer affiliated with Jollibee Foods Corporation. The company and I had a few things we didn’t agree on so I decided to move away and focus on being a freelancer (which earns me a decent $8 per hour) and a chance to build on my website.
I’ll be stealing a few blogs from this place for content’s sake. The purpose of that website is to earn me some passive income. I’m thankful I’m the author so I don’t need to ask for anyone’s permission :D
So yeah, here’s the website in case you want to visit!
I’ve kept this book hidden since May this year, often reading what I initially saw as more “exciting” books in my previous book reviews. While I did have joy in reading those books, I believe I felt as if I betrayed myself by putting this book on hold for such a long time.
This book is simply amazing. I’ve never read anything quite like it. Gaiman states he drew inspiration from The Jungle Book, which is about a child raised by animals. Truth be told, this book does share an awful lot of similarity with its inspiration but it’s nothing short of original and witty when it comes to delivery and concept.
“You’re in love with her, aren’t you?”
“When you were talking to her at the other table, I saw the way you looked, no, stared at her.
You don’t look at me that way and for the longest time I’ve always wondered if there was something missing, something I haven’t done but now I know.
Those eyes…those eyes are really for someone else.” (more…)
I bought this book without knowing what it was really about. I figured the teaser at the back sounded promising as it seemed to introduce a bunch of quirky, not-so-cliche characters which many books seem to use nowadays. It was also interesting how it involved a story of a suicidal boy which reminded me of how interesting “Perks” was.
To be honest, the book was a bit slow and depressing when it started. I’m not a fan of depressing books so I guess that has to be a factor too. I actually planned on skipping this book for another but I figured it should get interesting as a friend of mine, whom I really think is cool when it comes to song and book interests, told me it was worth a read. And it was.
If you’re wondering what this is about, John Stewart of the Daily Show has officially retired from the show this Thursday which was just 12 or so hours ago from my timezone (it’s 40 past midnight here as I write this, Saturday morning). It saddens me because I only got to watch him back in 2009 and I already missed a lot. I don’t watch TV a lot but I like the way he tells the hard truth in a funny way. I also got to watch Stephen Colbert become a force to be reckoned with when it comes to political satire/comedy.
I’ll miss their tandem so much.
Here’s a video of Stephen’s impromptu goodbye message to Jon. It’s beautiful. #jonvoyage
I’m reviewing quite possibly one of the best books series I’ve ever read. What made me pick this up is the way the book used a synopsis that was achingly familiar towards one of my favorite genre: ordinary humans with powers. There’s just something about extraordinary abilities and “wars” that drive me mad and this book has them. In fact, it has more than what it appeared to offer. This book has drama, love, death, despair, lust, hate, inhumanity, and will definitely make you question your morals.
I’ve been a fan of Batman for as long as I can remember which explains why I couldn’t keep myself from smiling and having goosebumps when I saw the official trailer for Batman vs Superman!!!
I’m calling it now: Wonder Woman gets to help Batman with his fight against Superman and Lex secretly unearth’s Zod by the end of the film.
Another DC movie to look forward to is Suicide Squad. When you’re a fan of Batman, you’re a fan of The Joker. Period. It almost doesn’t have to be said anymore. The trailer looks so badass specially with the song they mixed just for this movie (which is from the Bee Gees by the way).
I’m going to give Leto a chance to prove if he’s worth the title of The Joker. Nicholson and Heathe earned it. If Jared’s track record of playing fucked up characters prove anything, he should be able to pull off a decent version of this awesome villain.
I also love the Superman reference in the beginning of the trailer which means they’ll merge this film with Batman vs Superman sometime hopefully by 2017!
I’m going to cross my fingers right now and really schedule for the best seat in the house!
The best news in gaming today came from Sony. Hands down I saw two games players were waiting to be made for years.
The first one is our beloved Final Fantasy 7. Check out the video below:
I only played this game once but I played it to 100% completion. I ended up producing more than enough materia to beat even EMERALD WEAPON almost effortlessly.
Another exciting game is one of many fans most awaited sequel to the Shadow of the Colossus game, The Last Guardian!
My brother and I would often find ourselves replaying the same game over and over again simply because of the thrill it brings us when we fight big ass giants!
I’m right now considering buying a PS4 despite my promise not to buy another console for a game.
Safe to say, I already am excited for the PS4 and I swear if Square would go back to its Playstation One roots, remaking their old best sellers, I’m seeing a bright future ahead of the RPG world.
