How I Spent My Year 2009

I don't expect you guys to read all of this...but I hope you take the time to answer this survey yourselves just to reflect on the past year. If you do this, answer truthfully and with meaningful answers that you can look back on several years from now; it's amazing to look back on how you've grown.

This is my 7th straight year of doing this, and it's an absolute TRIP looking back and my old posts. Anyways, here it is.

Thank you, everyone!

Holy crap! Thank you guys so much for all the birthday wishes. My facebook, twitter and cell phone were going crazy the whole freakin' day!

Not gonna lie, I've had some miserable birthdays in the I've learned to appreciate the simplest birthdays of facebook/myspace comments, twitters, text messages and just being around people that I love. Yesterday was all about that and I loved it.

A few days ago, I was thinking of doing something like, "for every person that wishes me happy birthday, I'll do a body roll for one second." Damn, if I actually did that, it'd be a video of me doing body rolls for over 2.5 minute!! :laugh: Maybe next year. Maybe.

Anyways, lotsa love to the people that wished me happy birthday (in chronological order):

And on a random note...

This Ralph Emerson quote popped into my head yesterday. I've posted this before but I just love this quote so much I wanted to share it with you guys again:

Ralph Waldo Emerson:

To laugh often and much.
To win the respect of intelligent people,
and the affection of children.
To earn the appreciation of honest critics,
and endure the betrayal of false friends.
To appreciate beauty.
To find the best in others.
To leave the world a bit better,
whether by a healthy child, a garden patch,
or a redeemed social condition.
To know even one life has breathed easier,
because you have lived.
That is to have succeeded.

Love you guys. <3

New Hotness:

My most recent addiction.

All of the local filipino musicians get on this thing and broadcast throughout the day. Their "shows" can be anything: live performances, open practices, random jam sessions, or just screwing around & chatting with the viewers. It's such an awesome way to get personal with indie artists and discover new music.

One of my favorite things about this is when they freestyle with whatever words the viewers type in the chatroom. Check out the video below, where Jeremy "Passion" Mondongo does a freestyle about food and finishes with a roll call. (You'll see my screenname in the chat)

Another cool thing is you can have two people co-host during a broadcast. Check this one out with Passion & Nessa Ramos (and pay attention to 2:07, haha):

Original: Chillen with Nessa

This co-hosting thing makes blogtv a LOT of fun. All of these local filipino artists are good friends with each other and take turns co-hosting each other's shows. Someone will start broadcasting in the afternoon, do it for a couple hours and then they'll hit up the next artist. For the past few nights they've been taking turns broadcasting til 4 in the morning. Sooooo chill!
