10 Things I Learned From My 10 Years On Twitter

Twitter - Baddie

Today is my 10th anniversary on Twitter. 10 years. An entire decade. Just a few more years and my first tweet will be a teenager. A tweetager? I wish I tweeted something more interesting for my inaugural post.

The Best and Worst of “Of Manila” Twitter Accounts

Of Manil Twitter Accounts of Manila

It all started with a few chuckles and some legitimate laugh-out-loud moments as @TitasOfManila began running roughshod over Twitter. Then it spawned a bunch of copycat accounts which, like most things on the Internet, quickly turned into a nitro-powered bandwagon of legitimately hilarious and undeniably unfunny — not to mention offensive — Of Manila Twitter accounts. And like most bandwagons, it is destined to …


Exploring Pottermore

Pottermore Email

Before we proceed, let me just inform you that I have not read the Harry Potter books. I’ve only seen the movies. You can boo me all you want but I can’t hear you over the sound of me exploring Pottermore. Deal with it. Actually, it’s 3 clicks away. I got the magical Pottermore email this morning but I must …

Comics Publisher Website 404 Error Pages


Comics are fun and colorful, so you’d expect the 404 error pages of comics publisher websites to be a little more interesting than most error pages. That’s not the case, though. I followed a link from my feed reader to Marvel’s website and it turns out it was broken. I didn’t mind because I saw a familiar face from Peter …


5 Odd Fiverr Gigs

I will stop bugging you with my stupid blog entries for $5.

What would you do for $5? Would you write a 3-page poem? Would you compose and sing an original song about fat people? Would you punch your own face and/or neck? I know what I’m willing to do for $5. Doing things for $5 is the simple yet strangely compelling concept behind Fiverr. It’s a website where people can share …


Publishing Your Last.fm Loved Tracks to Twitter Using Dlvr.it

I’ve been using LastFM Love and Twitterfeed to share my Last.fm loved tracks on Twitter alternately for the last few months and both services just don’t work for me. LastFM Love is not very intuitive and it only worked for me a couple of times. Twitterfeed is just not reliable. It keeps retrieving my Last.fm loved tracks but it doesn’t …


I Love the Internet SO HARD

Love Month is almost over and I just realized “How can I talk about Love without talking about the Internet?!” I mean, the Internet is not only the source of unlimited information and porn, but it’s also the wellspring of happiness, and that’s what we’re all looking for, right? Every time I feel miserable, I look for friends who I …


Plurk Theme: DOOM!

plurk doom!

Ever since Plurk gave plurkers (with karma over 25) the ability to customize their profiles with some CSS sorcery, I promised myself I’ll get into the action just because. And now, I’ve finally joined the fray. Behold! My first Plurk customized theme that I’d like to call DOOM! (for obvious reasons). Click on the thumbnails to enlarge the screenshots.

It is a hip place for fans to see their favorite bands perform both live & in practice sessions.

Facebook Dickery: Graffiti App

Last time, I talked about Facebook’s Photos application that lets you upload an unlimited number of photos. Sure, it’s a lot of fun to share photos of you naked in the crapper while puffing smoke, but there’s one Facebook app that let’s you create compelling images by hand: the Graffiti app. The concept is simple and very appealing: Draw on …
