For heaven's sake, man. Dont encourage them. These Hollywood types have too much power already. First it was the Abu Sayyaf asking for Robin Padilla, now this.
Filipino fishermen appealed to Hollywood star and UN messenger of peace
George Clooney on Thursday to urge the Philippine government to resume
talks with communist rebels to end a 40-year-old insurgency.

Mother of pearl, it continues!

The Renaldo Lapuz juggernaut continues unabated. New dance remix versions here.

I have a dream


During an appearance at the Convent Avenue Baptist Church in Harlem, the former president was caught nodding off.

Clinton was there during a service to honor Dr. Martin Luther
King Jr., while his wife was nearby at Abyssinian Baptist Church, where
she was endorsed by its minister, Rev. Calvin Butts.


We're Brothers Forever
(Music and lyrics by Renaldo Lapuz)

I am your brother
Your best friend forever
Singing the songs
The music that you like
We're brothers til the end of time
Together or not
You’re always in my heart
Your hurting feelings
In you will reign no more

(Repeat until peace reigns in all the land)

Update: A remix version is already out. Now that's fame!

Now open wide... No, I didnt mean your mouth

Well, if Eastern medicine is to be believed, it's all connected. Guy comes in for a bump on the head and ends up with a probe in his ass. Western medicine is catching up to the East, I suppose.

Persaud, 38, was working at a midtown construction site in May 2003 when a plank slammed him in the head, knocking him down.

Medical records state Persaud was "alert and oriented times three" when he was
taken to the hospital's emergency room, where a resident informed him
he needed a rectal examination.


Soon the X-Men would have to go in and fight for mutate rights.

Experiments to create Britain’s first embryos that combine human and animal
material will begin within months after a government watchdog gave its
approval yesterday to two research teams to carry out the controversial work.

Arent you annoyed when some stranger reads over your shoulder?

Then youll really be pissed about this one.
At issue, [US Director of National Intelligence John] McConnell acknowledges, is that in order to accomplish his plan, the government must have the ability to read all the information crossing the Internet in the United States in order to protect it from abuse.
Yep. That's the plan. Uncle Sam wants to look at that internet porn site youre looking at. And since the Motherland's government does -- Filipino monkey see, Filipino monkey do -- what Uncle Sam does, our own spies would soon be asking for that capability, too.

Oo, and lata ng Pinoy

Yes, the Filipino can.

Start a war, that is.
A heckling radio ham known as the Filipino Monkey, who has spent years
pestering ships in the Persian Gulf, is being blamed today for sparking
a major diplomatic row after American warships almost attacked Iranian
patrol boats.

The US navy came within seconds of firing at the
Iranian speedboats in the Strait of Hormuz on January 6 after hearing
threats that the boats were attacking and were about to explode.
Update: 'Filipino Monkey' isnt a person. It isnt even a group of persons. The media people got it wrong. It is a phrase, a taunt, that has been in use for over 20 years. MLQ3 has the lowdown on the whole Filipino Monkey phenomenon in the waters of the world. Im looking forward to the response of the the contributors to this blog to the fact that the 'atrocities' might be perpetrated by one of their favorite ethnic groups. Nyahahahaa.. Let the trash talking begin.

Here's something from The Register via the United Filipino Seafarers website.

Anyone who has spent time bridge watchkeeping at sea east of the Suez Canal will be aware of what's known as the "Filipino Monkey" phenomenon. All ships at sea are required to maintain a listening watch on VHF marine channel 16, so as to hear distress messages, collision warnings or other calls. It's the equivalent of the Star Trek "hailing frequencies", as it were. However, you aren't supposed to just blot out channel 16 with chitchat - if you want to hold a conversation or something the correct form is to change channels after establishing comms on 16. In that way, the primary channel stays open for urgent stuff.

In northern waters, this is what happens. Once you get down into points south and east, the knowledge that large numbers of people absolutely have to listen to you - like it or not, as a requirement of maritime law and professional seamanship - seemingly becomes an irresistible temptation for a lot of people in possession of VHF sets.

The most popular phrase used by these people is "Filipino Monkey", said by salty old seafarers to have started out as an insult against Filipinos but now just meaning "I'm bored and want to piss a lot of watchstanders off".

At other times, people will offer karaoke-style musical offerings, brilliant gambits such as "I f*ck your mother/sister/dog", "look out I am going to hit [collide with] you, ha ha" etc. In many ways it's a lot like the internet, but sadly you can't - as a professional seaman - turn it off.

Another major form of airwave pollution on VHF channels is Western - typically US - warships reading out standardised warnings as required by rules of engagement or legal procedure. "Vessel on my port bow this is US/NATO/coalition warship... please keep clear/stop and be boarded in accordance with UN security council resolution blah-blah/be aware I am engaged in flight operations/be warned I will open fire if you do not comply/etc.".

Out in the Gulf and such places this often draws a storm of "Filipino monkey" style comment, very often from vessels nowhere near.

The fact remains that Pinoy seamen, far from being whiny about the whole thing, simply return the compliment, as illustrated by the sailor from Manila quoted by MLQ3 who just smiled it off and recounted how they had a ready comeback for that shit. What Im wary of is the reaction of The Whiny Pinoy community: Boo-hoo! Racial slur! We're oppressed victims! Our sailors arent behaving as victims, so knock it off.

[I have to admit though, that to some Pinoys, unggoy or tsonggo is insulting. I remember Pops Fernandez boo-hooing on TV because his ex Martin Nievera's wife called Pops's kids (with Nievera) monkeys. Probably just a clash of cultures, I thought. 'Monkey' could be a term of endearment, especially when used with your own kids. I used to use it all the time with my kids when they were toddlers, and so did my brother and sister with their kids.]

Hypocrisy, thy color is green

Being from a third world country, I do my best to care for the environment for the sake of posterity. I dont waste electricity, I dont waste water. I dont have a car and dont plan on owning one in the near future unless it's a reasonably-priced, reasonably powered vehicle that runs on cow piss and would last for years. I do my best, really. But then I turn on the news and see this.
A survey of travel habits has revealed that the most environmentally conscious people are also the biggest polluters.
Forget guys like Travolta, or Gore, or Madonna. We know theyre Hollywood and couldnt be trusted to live a low-carbon-footprint lifestyle no matter what they say. We already know theyre hypocrites.
"Green" consumers have some of the biggest carbon footprints because
they are still hooked on flying abroad or driving their cars while
their adherence to the green cause is mostly limited to small gestures.
The Green movement, the global warming crowd, are just saying, "Hey, Third World! Take care of resources and dont waste them. That way there'll be more for us to squander. And those rice fields? It'll be better if you plant them with crops that you could turn into bio-fuels, you know. Dont worry about food. When you have money from the bio-fuels, you can import food from Africa or someplace. Progress, man. Go green!"

As if the writer's guild werent enough trouble for Jay Leno

The American leader of al-Qaida lashed out at the wife of late-night talk show host Jay Leno in a newly released video-taped message warning fellow Americans of coming "punishment."

Al-Qaida propaganda chief Adam Gadahn, aka. "Azzam the American," singled Mavis Leno out for rebuke for her feminist views and criticism of the misogynistic brutality of the Taliban. He also heaped scorn on first lady Laura Bush, suggesting they are both hypocrites.

reborn as W. Akshat Rohit

such brand loyalty - hats off!

At least they havent lost their sense of humor

Scientists, that is. A scientist has put forth the idea that the universe is a giant virtual reality simulation. I suspect he did it to poke fun on the 'science-fictionization' of science; the idea that a theory is scientific if it's even remotely possible, especially if you can create a mathematical equation for it, real-world empirical evidence optional.
He readily admits that this is a weird idea but points out that it is no more strange than many widely held views in physics such as the many worlds interpretation of quantum mechanics, the big bang and Boltzmann brains.
Exactly, Brian. Ha-ha! Wait til the guys at the water cooler hear about this. You crack me up.

Wait, what? You mean... youre serious?

Ahhh... Corporate social responsibility

Warms the heart.
A frail partnership between Intel and the One Laptop Per Child educational computing group was undone last month in part by an Intel saleswoman: She tried to persuade a Peruvian official to drop the country’s commitment to buy quarter-million of the organization’s laptops in favor of Intel PCs.

Inteland the group had a rocky relationship from the start in their short-lived effort to get inexpensive laptops into the hands of the world’s poorest children.

But the saleswoman’s tactic was the final straw for Nicholas Negroponte, the former Massachusetts Institute of Technology computer researcher and founder of the nonprofit effort.

don't tase me, sis!

They werent named Fruit flies for nothing

The first time they were exposed to alcohol, groups of male flies
became noticeably intoxicated but kept themselves to themselves. But
with repeated doses of alcohol on successive days, homosexual courtship
became common.
Now scientists conducting this research are optimistic that inebriating the flies would give insight to how alcohol reduces inhibitions in humans. Theyll investigate brain chemistry and all that.
But do fruit flies really provide a good model for what happens in the
inebriated human brain? Heberlein, who works on both flies and mice,
believes they do. "What is cool is that there is such a similarity,"
she says. "I am surprised by the parallels."
Right. Like humans, flies also lose visual acuity and they think Floyd over there in the corner is a hot chick. Alcohol didnt turn them gay, Professor. It turned them blind.

Say goodbye to kiddie parties

And that trick of inhaling the helium out of balloons and singing Macho Macho Man.

We're running out of Helium.
"Helium is non-renewable and irreplaceable. Its properties are unique and unlike hydrocarbon fuels (natural gas or oil), there are no biosynthetic ways to make an alternative to helium. All should make better efforts to recycle it."
at least this list involves alcohol! and movies!

If you havent had enough of the usual end-of-the-year lists

I hope to God youre not on this list. Although it's quite possible that you were considered. The jury wouldnt say.

And this, from Reuters, a roundup of news that really mattered in 2007.

Happy new year.
