I just saw some of my old The Dawn pics posted at The Dawn Photo Archives at another website. I was not credited for those, and they didn’t ask permission for it, either. However, I dunno if I should call their attention or not. Why? Coz the part owner of the site is part of the band.
BTW, anyone here saw Rock MYX with The Dawn? ‘Twas ok, except… they should start memorizing the URL of their website (or YG or Friendster or whatever it is on the net). You know, for future reference. Seriously.
I still haven’t seen the Change Is Breaking Us Apart video!!!
My friend Shirley has been surprising us lately. She has been my friend since college; as far as we know, her taste in music is mainly contemporary pop with a smattering of old songs and Broadway showtunes. However, she ‘discovered’ the band The Calling last year, and since then, she has been surprising me a lot when she would blurt out stuff like, “uy, alam ko yang song na yan, Velvet Revolver yan”. I took her to a gig a few months ago, and she floored us when she commented about the sound (when our other friend, Ann, wouldn’t even care, she’s just there to watch and drink) and how that particular band sounded different when they still have 5 members (in short, stuff only I in our crowd would normally notice).

Just finished seeing the AI finals for the 3rd time… without finishing it (coz the ending just SUCKED!!!). I just LOOOOVE BO BICE!!! That voice, the leather pants, his attitude towards the entire thing… he’s THE MAN! Capping it off with that awesome Sweet Home Alabama number, he totally OWNED the show. So what if Farmbot won? Bo will forever be remembered as the better ‘Idol’ in this season of AI. Maybe even in the entire history of AI. Dang, I wish I’m in the States right now so that I can watch the AI tour. I don’t think there’ll be too much torture just for the love of Bo, coz Mikalah will not be part of it. hehe
Oh, and Bo, if you need someone to ride with you in your car, call me. Just make sure you’re wearing that white top and leather pants ensemble. ‘Kay?
Totally random thought: I just realized that I’m currently in lurve with Bo and Bi. Sounds like a comedy duo. HAHAHAHA!
In other news… George Benson totally rocks. Scott and Nikko looked like complete amateurs there – which they really are, actually.
Just finished watching the American Idol finale… ‘Farmbot’ (as in Farm Robot) Carrie Underwood won. UGH.
Bo Bice should have won!
Although in a way, it’s better that Carrie had won; 19Entertainment would just ‘poppify’ Bo.
Speaking of the AI finale, I like the “Idols meet their idols” number, except for that horrible Babyface-Mikalah Gordon-Lindsey Cardinale number. I wonder what horrible thing could Babyface have done to deserve being stuck in a number with Mikalah and Lindsey?
My favorite part would be George Benson with Nikko and Scottie the Body singing On Broadway. And of course, Bo and Lynyrd Skynrd doing Sweet Home Alabama totally rocked. Carrie’s number was good, but I simply hate Carrie, so…
Yesterday, Anwar Robinson looked like a cross between Lenny Kravitz and Shaggy. Today, his long dreads are back. Maybe someone told Anwar the Shaggy/Kravitz look is not for him.
Nadia Turner was robbed. ‘Nuff said.
Lastly: whoever thought of making that AI super-reject Leandra Jackson to reprise her horrible rendition of Star Spangled Banner should be shot. Really.
It’s friggin’ hot and humid, I’m sick, I travelled two+ hours to go to the office and it was locked so I ended up going back home for another gruelling two hours, I’m tired, my nose is clogged, and I just bought Pulp mag and saw something that made me see red… In short, this blog entry isn’t gonna be pretty, especially if you’re one of those ‘unconditional’ (read: ignorant) Dawn supporters.
(Disclaimer: I still love The Dawn, ok, it’s just that some people who just spew bullshit for the sake of spewing bullshit without even knowing the real score and just basing his so-called opinions on a magazine article really really piss me off.)
