The Eleventh Week (March 22 to 28)

Happy is when I see cute kitties lounging in toilet bowls. I just love four day work weeks right after Spring Break - it just brings out the 'happy' in people. Here now is your lyric of the day recap - "Summer love is a scam. But I can't help dreaming of summer...

Five Unconventional Songs for the Faithful

The Friday list comes on during Saturday again. I blame it on the migraine - which has slowly been killing me over the past years. Migraines aside, in this week's list, we go a bit spiritual (I think)  - since it's Lent, and something in my Catholic upbringing...

The Tenth Week (March 15 to March 21)

Some people really can't appreciate the authenticity of kid-drawn robots.In any case, if you were one of the few who did, I extend to you my warmest and deepest thanks. Otherwise, face the wrath of Cat-robot. Feel his evil death stare upon you, his fierce hell claws...

Twice As Nice

Twice As Nice

Not counting last week's robot T-shirt design post (since it wasn't even music-related), it's been a while since I've posted a Paolo related music post. If you've been keeping tabs, the last song he got obsessed with was Who Left the Lights Off, Baby. Now, I'm happy...

Modern Time Travel by The Rest

I've always loved La Blogotheque's Take-Away shows. There's always something grand about impromptu live music in places where you don't usually expect to have live music. Of course, when I heard that they got The Rest performing one of my favorite songs, I just had to...

The Ninth Week (March 8 to 14)

Ahh, hipster hate - the true landmark of hipster-ism. Personally, I don't really get that whole thing about hating on sub-cultures of cultures...or whatever you might call it. Also, as a self ascribed self-facilitating media node, I withhold judgement only until after...

The Misunderstood Robot

To long-time visitors of the site, you might remember the robot that hovers over the left side of the page when you visit. I've actually contemplated on putting it on a shirt or something, since Paolo is always proud of seeing it shown (since it looks oh-so-edgy with...

Overplayed in the 80s: Yes, indulge me

I know, this post isn't at all indie - it's going to be more retro than indie. But then, in my defense - it's the sort of music that most of you guys reading haven't heard of, since these songs came from an era where you were still a twinkle in your parent's eyes. I...

The Eighth Week (March 1 to 7)

5-Piece Generation X Sushi Roll

I love the 90's! What's not to like, the Philippine Peso was 25 to a dollar. We witnessed the return of the Adidas Samba and Gazelle for your daily footwear needs. There's various states of curious experimentation, but that of course is another story. Best of all, I...

The Seventh Week (February 22 to 28)

I think weeks should always start with a post of a picture of a young Christopher Walken.Just because.Also, my daily lyrics have a universal theme to them....but it's mystery. Just like the mystery that surrounds the weird feeling that you get just by looking at this...

I (heart) the Vancouver Olympics

I will miss the buzz of the Olympics when it's all done. It might not have felt like winter in Vancouver - especially with the dreadful rain that we're having today, but I do think the Winter Olympics was quite a success. I will particularly miss the free concerts and...

The Fifth and Sixth Week (February 8 to 21)

It feels like Spring. For the past couple of days, whenever I walk outside I'm greeted by sunshine and birds chirping. Also the grass seems to be getting longer now and we might need to mow the lawn. Drats. For the lack of lyric of the day posts the other week, I've...

Showstar

The Fourth Week (February 1 to 7)

This comes out terribly late - I admit, I feel asleep...for a week - and just woke up in time for the Winter Olympics. There's still no snow, only rain - and it bugs me why they have a blizzard there  where my sister is in Virginia, and not a tiny speck of snow...
