Twitter: Responsible Followship

Due to the recent event that my dad had been into, regarding his comment to Kim Atienza and meddling of Chito Miranda, plus bashing of few avid followers of Atienza, I started to think that being followed by a (significant) number of tweeps is a big responsibility, and if the people being followed (celebrities) haven't seen that, then it is just sad.

Although you are not liable for what they say, at least be vigilant to notice if your followers are acting right--- in the case of Atienza, he was a public servant--- former congressman (kaya siguro di na nanalo ulit), role model of the youth (they think he's smart, when what he does is just deliver the facts from Google), and a public figure--- if the person is in his right mind, he would have stepped up and tell his followers that what they are doing is not right and would have suggested that--- opinions are opinions, we can't please everybody, and if (my dad or) any person would say their opinion about him, just let them be (since pinagmamalaki naman nila ang 450k+ followers ni Atienza, ano na lang ang tatay ko).

It started with this:

Comment from my dad (he tweeted first):
@greatidol: di ako bilib sau kc di lahat ng nagtatanong nagre-reply ka.
Namimili ka lang sama nun dba? palagay mo?
ENG: @greatidol: I don't commend you because
you don't reply to everybody who ask you, you just choose.
Isn't it bad? Don't you think so?

Then Atienza replied: kawawa naman ikaw.
ENG: pity you.
Thn Chito Miranda butted in~
Then Chito Miranda called my dad "TANGA"--- STUPID.

Who does have any right to call anybody stupid? He (Chito Miranda) does even know my dad personally, and we don't know him either, but now we know him better--- ill-mannered stereotypical Atenean.

Great power comes with great responsibility.

Harry Potter Boy into a Man

Look at them so young.
Who would have thought that Neville Longbottom
(on the right, Matthew Lewis) would grow handsome like that.

Hermione Granger (Emma Watson) working that short hair.
Not like her red carpet gown though.

KFC So Good, but no thanks

Cute, emotional, but still no, even though a friend told me that his cousin supplies some of the KFC chicken.

Sex Sells Newspaper or NOT?!

Photo Credit: Ohlala
Obviously you know why newspapers have to do ads like this
(What are they thinking placing a man half naked that is not even model fit?!
I guess the peg is business-y type body frame).
For obvious reasons of declining subscriptions of news written on paper,
we will be seeing more of this ads.
I hope no more of naked people.

Blackberry Bold 9900

There's something in the design that I don't like--- a feel like of the Bold 9000. After Bold 9700/9780 was launched, I felt that the Bold 9000, is really ugly, you have a better design with the Curves.
Not bad, but became bad ass ugly when these arrived:
I can't say if Bold 9900's design really is not okay, but I think these 
old 9700/9780's design are really more classic than of the new Bold.

I found a Merman!
