Designs By Monday

So a friend of mine, Carlo, told me to “Like” their new project called “Designs By Monday”, and I absolutely love their designs.

I was able to order one of these from my friend. It’s a spoof of the movie “The 300”, but instead of Leonidas, it has the First Filipino Hero, Lapu-Lapu on it instead, with the year of the Battle of Mactan (1521).

It is SO kick-ass! XD

They have another one, which involves Andres Bonifacio, which I’ll be ordering again next month. I have yet to get this shirt from them, but the design is so awesome. I think I’ll get it by Saturday.

People should have more custom t-shirts like these. Seriously. A lot of people actually don’t know about Philippine heroes, so it’s cool that Designs By Monday could make something this great. Philippine heroes are just as kick-ass as Leonidas or Professor X (whoops, spoiler there), and should be treated with respect and admiration. It’s like they’re modernizing the concept of Phil. Heroes so that the younger generation could relate to their greatness, and understand the sacrifices they made for the country.

I hope they make one with Gabriela Silang and Wonder Woman… I’d buy that as soon as possible. GO, WOMEN!!! XD

Hmm… that got me thinking. Maybe I can help with some of the design ideas too. Hahaha! But, I can only give ideas, since I suck at Photoshop and photo-editing softwares. ~_~

Anyway, they’ll have more designs and ideas soon. But if you want to order or inquire about their shirts, you can message them via FaceBook:

Gustav Klimt

Hey, Google’s got a cool cover today.

For those who don’t know, this is Gustav Klimt’s painting, called “The Kiss”. Which, at first to me, looked like a very trippy painting and it had too much yellows that I feel I needed Ray Ban Aviator glasses to cover up my eyes. It’s actually Gustav Klimt’s birthday today, July 14.

But it soon grew on me, and it’s one of my favorite art pieces now. Of course, Yoshitaka Amano is still my favorite artist.

Not to mention that if you’re familiar with the ultra-violent Anime “Elfen Lied”, you’d be familiar with it.

I didn’t realize how much I’m into art now. A long time ago, I’ve always thought that I’d be a painter. But my art is not that good, so I ditched it. My bestfriend, Joyce, would probably be a much painter than I am, anyway.

But as it turns out my “real” art lies with words. Sure, I haven’t done a good non-fanfiction story yet, but I hope in time, I would. I probably won’t making a story as Tolkien’s or Rowling, but hey, you’ll never know.

As Neil Gaiman said, “Make good art”. Like Klimt. Or Tolkien.

Hopefully, I’ll be making my own art soon.

Whatever Happened to the “Huling El Bimbo” girl?

This question came up rather randomly in my head. I’ve been very busy trying to read more now (especially The Hobbit book, since it’s coming out pretty soon), and during one of my lapses of reading I heard the Eraserhead’s “Ang Huling El Bimbo”.

Then I remembered the girl who was dancing in the video. I remembered her because she was so cute in that video. Quite an actress for such a young age.

Which made me realize, whatever happened to her? I don’t think she rose to stardom ever since that video was made. Which is quite a shame, really. For a few moments, this girl actually stole the show.

I’m actually learning to play this on the ukulele. It’s actually weird, since not as haunting in meaning with the ukulele. Maybe this song is reserved for the acoustic guitar.

Anyway, does anyone have any news about the girl? Or the woman in this video? This song and MTV won so many awards long ago, I hope they got a portion of the profits from this project, since it’s a really haunting video.

They don’t make music videos like these anymore. Sheesh.

Amanda Palmer/ Ukulele Obsession

I am positively, absolutely, no-doubt-about-it, head-over-heels in love with this artist.

I even bought a ukulele (the same instrument she’s using) just so I’d be able to play it like her…

Obsessed much? Harharhar. XD

Ukelele Obsession!!!


All because of this woman. XD

I’ve heard that it’s only three to four chords. But I don’t have a ukelele… T_T

Remind me to buy one when I get enough money. XD
