Really Cool

Yet again, I ain't dead yet. Maybe I was just simply busy working things out with my ex. Maybe I was just running out of thoughts. Maybe I was just busy reading Stephenie Meyer's New Moon (of her Twilight series). Maybe I was just simply exhausted with my new schedule. Maybe I just don't have the mood to scan for new updates about the Philippine gay world. Maybe I was just tired of blogging because I'm not really getting something in return. Maybe I want some changes with my routine. Or maybe, I'm dead.

On Cosmopolitan: More men unveiled!

Here's more from Cosmopolitan's collection of hot bachelors published last month. I'd like to share the rest of the centerfolds but these complete the finest pictures I got online, the rest are only scans from the magazine. (I can take some time to e-mail them if you send me your address.) Like the first batch, these hot bachelors are just as equally gorgeous and generous to pose in their sexiest.

Watch out for Polo Ravales & Joseph Bitangcol

I was visiting one of my favorite Yahoo! Group sites (Puri Titiwang Presents) and found some updates about this new gay movie called Walang Kawala (lit. No Escape), starring Polo Ravales and Joseph Bitangcol. The Director's Cut of this movie will be shown on November 6, 7pm, at the UP Film Institute, UP Diliman, Quezon City. The tickets cost a hundred bucks. I'm not sure about the plot of the movie but it's directed by Joel Lamangan, so it should be good, right? Of course, it's not going to be a Lamangan movie without the butt exposures, so expect Ravales' ass flashing every now and then. Plus a sexier Bitangcol, who would resist?

Stephenie Meyer's Twilight

Few days ago, I stumbled upon an article about this incoming movie called Twilight, which is a love story with a bite. It interested me more when I found out that Robert Pattinson (who played Cedric Diggory in the film Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire) stars in this adaptation of Stephenie Meyer's best-selling novel as the lead character (and vampire) Edward Cullen. I got doubly excited, as a big Harry Potter fan, when the article mentioned that the Twilight series could be the next Harry Potter. Though some may argue that Twilight is bad literature, students of Comparative Literature Studies at online colleges think that Twilight is good literature because of its readership.

It has been a while already since the last time I actually took time to read a book in its entirety, and Jessica Zafra recently inspired me (through her article in The Philippine Star) to consider doing that again. (Thanks to you, Ms. Zafra. That's the first time I've seen your column, too, and I can't simply ignore this line: "If people do not read, they do not develop their critical faculties." It's hard to admit, but I got scared I might lose my wit, too. *LOL*) I was blabbing about the Twilight series to a friend who probably thought I'm sort of obssessed. But he surprised me the next day when he approached me with a wrapped gift from Fully Booked, and even before I got the chance to actually hold it, I knew it was Stephenie Meyer inside. Sweet. Here's a little trivia: The Filipino vampire Danag was briefly mentioned in Chapter 7.
