Valentine's Day trailer

I am getting excited about a movie coming up on February - "Valentine's Day". It's an all-star cast and when I watched the trailer, I really think it's one of the nicest feel-good movies this year. Since I won't have a date AGAIN on Valentine's Day for sure, I might end up watching this movie.

Here's the trailer!!!

It's all about LOVE, LOVE, LOVE! :D

You Were Meant For Me - Music Monday

I'm a fan of Jewel and I really love her songs. Just haven't heard new songs from her lately though.

A 12 Year Old Guitar Wizard

I was quite disappointed about the news that the guitarist of Kuerdas Band is going to quit playing with the band sometime soon.Who in GenSan could ever replace him? Teng is really good on his craft and his talent as a guitarist has been a great contribution to the band. I hope he really won't quit.

As I was browsing through videos of Kuerdas in YouTube, I came across a video of this 12-year-old Guitar Wizard - Sungha Jung. I am really amazed with this child's talent. How I wish someone from GenSan could play like this to make a possible replacement for Teng. Don't get me wrong Teng. You're still GenSan's best guitarist for me! :D

Sungha Jung started to play the guitar when he was only 3 years old. His being a finger-style guitarist is already known around the world through YouTube. Praises not only come from fans of the young boy but also from known guitar artists.

Sungha Jung
, you're definitely one of a kind!!!

AI - Second Week Auditions Update

This week's 2 episodes of American Idol took us to Chicago and Orlando, Florida.

Tuesday's guest judge was the beautiful Shania Twain who said some naughty remarks to John Park, one of the lucky people who got the golden ticket to the show. He definitely have a nice vocals and Shania made it clear that he liked the guy by saying he had a beautiful bottom end and nice lips. She also said he had a nice tone "down there" and that he has a good head. The other judges didn't expect she'd say that. You naughty, naughty Shania! LOL!

They ended up picking just 13 contestants from the 12,000 who auditioned in Chicago! Lucky 13, huh?

Next stop is Orlando, Florida where more than 10,000 hopefuls awaited. Kristen Chenoweth who has strong musical background was the guest judge. She did have a lot of "chic" moments with Kara which made the audition fun. She wasn't around on the second day of auditions in Orlando though so she missed the man who actually had his "pants ripped on the ground" when he did the unforgettable and one of the most hilarious American Idol audition! That actually made the judges say "YES" to his audition! Hahahaha! It still make me laugh whenever I watch the video!

The best audition in Orlando for me is from Matthew Lawrence. His once troubled past made his audition song heartfelt. He once robbed a bank when he was young and spent years in jail. He joined American Idol to redeem himself. He wanted his family to be once again proud of him.

Here's the video:

Sherlock Holmes -Movie Review

Czarina and I went out and watched Sherlock Holmes at Glorrieta 4 yesterday. Even though I was anxious about my coughing, I insisted to watch. I was able to control my cough though. I just let it out when the movie was in a middle of fighting or on scenes that has a lot of sound effects. The movie was packed with that, anyways so I didn't choke. Lol!

Sherlock Holmes is a fictional character created on the late nineteenth century by the author and physician Sir Arthur Conan Doyle. Holmes (Robert Downey Jr.) is a consulting detective whom, together with his best friend and chronicler Dr. John Watson (Jude Law), try to solve a case about a serial killer and sorcerer Lord Blackwood. Holmes and Watson don't believe in black magic and will prove to England that there's no such thing by providing facts and evidences about the hoax.

I love the movie and how it highlighted the friendship between two brilliant and brave men. I also love the comedy side of the film. I'm glad it was not just an action-packed film.

I will be watching out for the saga of this film. Here's the trailer of the movie:

AI - First Week Auditions Update

The auditions on 2 cities (Boston, MA and Atlanta City) did a jump-start this week. There were some sad stories, some are inspiring, some got into our nerves and even pissed the judges off. We also met a lot of annoying auditioners too. Amongst the thousands of people who went to try their luck on the auditions, a few were chosen. Each one of us have favorite auditions, so far. Mine is Tyler Grady who, at first, looked like some other annoying people on the audition. Apparently, he wasn't. He was even charming and cool.

The 2 guest judges - Victoria Beckham and Mary J. Blige were both pretty on their own ways. Victoria was able to maintain her prim and proper attitude even if the auditioners were already pushing their buttons. She always sees the good on each of the people who came to audition. Mary J. Blige on the other other hand couldn't help herself especially if she sees something funny about the audition. Both of them did great though.

It's good that my rest days were on Wednesdays and Thursdays. I am able to get a grasp of the show and get a lot of sleep afterwards. :D
