For only P30 at Toy Palace in Farmers Plaza I got Otto of The Simpsons rock n’ rolling in a graveyard. Awesome.

In college, my friend Dennis and I collaborated for an "underground" comics called "Madness: Tales of Mental Decay." It was supposed to be a series featuring stories of, well, insanity. We were able to crank out a well-received first issue, but that was it. We graduated, discovered girls, and simply lost time for such creative endeavors. Anyway, the whole thing has been posted in Dennis' Multiply site. Nice. I still can't believe we pulled this one up and impressed people.

dennis & ditas

In our little college group, Dennis (3rd from left) is the last person we thought who's into marriage. We couldn't even imagine him wearing barong and acting solemn. It was just... unthinkable. But then again, we were a bunch of dweebs who know nothing. So congrats to Mr and Mrs Mendoza.


All these for less than Php600. Thank god for Booksale and SM three-day sales.

to rest

I need to unwind. The last three days have been a crazy blur of bouncers, whores and beautiful bridesmaids, of late-night beer and bad weather, and my system, badly needing nutrition and sleep, is succumbing to the stress. I feel like Layne Staley on the last days of his life.

the mist

It was all mist when my wife and I, along with my sister-in-law and three of her friends, trooped to Baguio over the weekend. We were boating in Burnham Park 4:30 Saturday, but we couldn't see the other end of the lagoon. Boats emerging from the fog reminded me of ghost ships and the Philadelphia Experiment, of cold Transylvanian mornings and that brilliant Stephen King novella. It was both eerie and beautiful.
