August 29th, 2002 · No Comments

Holy eighties flashbacks, Batman!!!!! The finale act of the MTV VMAs tonight is none other than Guns N’ Roses, although it looks like the only member that actually still there is Axl Rose. It would’ve been cooler if Slash was also in the lineup, but oh well. I guess Axl just needs [...]

Last weekend was a blast! A trip is always so much better when you’re relaxed and not really in a rush to visit something or someone. We had a leisurely drive to Philly, and met up with some of our friends. The highlight of Aileen’s trip there was shopping at the the [...]

I guess speech isn’t that free in the US anymore - my favorite afternoon radio show “Opie & Anthony” has just been cancelled. Doesn’t this “Catholic League” have better things to do, like make sure that child-molesting priests get put behind bars? There’s even an article about this incident from as far as [...]

August 12th, 2002 · No Comments

The site’s finally back up so I’ve been able to upload my past couple of posts from Blogger. I’m thinking of finally switching over to Movable Type, but that would mean another switch in webhosts since M6 doesn’t support PHP. Decisions, decisions.

August 4th, 2002 · No Comments

Can lightning strike twice? The company which I was supposed to start working for has been sold by their parent company (click here for details). How will this affect me? Although it’s not as bad as what happened to me previously, it still might alter my proposed work for this company. [...]
