Taking the Plunge into Music

Yup. I’m going to do it!

I’m going to buy an acoustic guitar!

I’ve made up my mind (and, surprisingly, have the funds to spare XD) and I’m going to buy an acoustic guitar tomorrow, after I’ve enrolled my Master’s degree. I’ll be passing by a local musician’s mecha in Manila, and I’m thinking of stopping over and trying a few of them before I head home. I’m looking particularly at Sta. Mesa, where a local family of guitar makers (The Lumanogs) are still there plying their craft. Although I have read in some reviews that you really have to test the guitars yourself to see which one “feels” better for you.

There are other music shops that I’m also considering, and some online shops as well, like and Lazada (yes, they sell guitars online), but like I said, you have to feel the guitars by yourself to choose the best one that suits your style and comfort.

But still, I am going to do it! And if I’m able to do it, I can finally cross “learning how to play a guitar” off my bucket list. XD

Metallica Broke A World Record!

So I was surfing around (yeah, I’m a frequent visitor there ^_^) when I saw this:


Metallica played in concerts in ALL 7 CONTINENTS?!


I actually saw a clip on YouTube on how they did it… they held a concert in Antarctica for a bunch of scientist doing research there, in a glass dome with everyone wearing specialized headphones to hear them (apparently, something about the Antarctic makes sounds get all screwed up). And here I thought they just wanted to play there for no reason. I doubt the animal life there were metal rockers… or maybe they are.  XD

Anyway, I hope they hold a concert here in the Philippines soon again. I think the last time they came here was 1993… and I didn’t have the money to go back then, being still an elementary student. I’d die a happy, content mortal death if I could attend their concert (and maybe get a meet and greet… XD)

And I still believe that my brother looks like Kirk Hammett… particularly in this picture. I think the only difference is their noses. They even have the same smile here. That’s freaky. O_O

Please, Metallica! Do a concert in the Philippines! And maybe a meet and greet! Pretty please! I’d show you guys my brother and you decide if he really looks like Kirk. ^_^

As they say in video game lingo, I’ve unlocked an achievement!

A few weeks ago, I entered the “Humor Me Makoy Contest” with one of my Tales From The Isle of Marinduque stories. And wouldn’t you know it, I got 2nd place! ^_^v

This is really a huge thing for me, since it was the first time I entered a blogging contest, not to mention I was doubting my writing abilities. This only shows that though I need some work, there may be hope for me yet.

So yeah, I’m going to keep writing and doing my best in this. Writing one of the things I love doing, so I hope I can keep entertaining people like Sir Makoy with my writing.

Congratulations to all those who won, and all those who entered. I had so much fun reading their stories and learned a lot from all their writing styles.

You can read more about the contest winners and entries here.
