RIAA Personal Use of Music

RIAAWhen you made a personal copy of a legally purchased CD is illegal as stated by the Recording Industry Association of America(RIAA). So it means when you rip your CDs into mp3s or any digital formats, you are violating copyright laws. Oh well, just support the music industry by purchasing original CDs.

When your TIN is not Good enough

google adsense western unionI was happy when Google added Western Union Quick Cash to deliver earnings and speed up Adsense payments. This morning i went to a Western Union Center here in Batangas to get my earnings. I have Social Security System(SSS) id and Tax Identification Number(TIN) card but they said that my TIN card is not a valid government issued ID card.  Ok,  let me enumerate some of Western Union's so called valid government issued card.

Philippine Regulation Commission(PRC) card - not all people take PRC board exams

Government Service Insurance System(GSIS) card - hey not all people are government employees

Land Transportation Office (LTO) Driver's License - not all people know how to drive

Passport - is passport an identification card??? not all people wants to go abroad

I still believe and campaigning that our TIN card to be considered as a valid government issued ID because it is one of the many proofs that you pay your taxes(?).

Trojans on Google Text Ads

Google Text Ads TrojanOi!!! This is my first post in my new not so ordinary blogsite. After spending two years in my blogger account. I've decided to again have my own domain(after someone squat my first domain).  Yep, first post, not so good news. It seems that crackers find ways to hijack into Google Text Ads which installs TROJ_QHOST.GC trojan. This trojan modifies the HOSTS that prevents users in connecting to and redirects the request to gambling and pornography sites.

Last quarter ng taon, muling sumigla ang aking buhay musika... naka-iskor na ako ng sarili kong drumset at muli nakapalo na ulit pagkaraan ng napakahabang panahon...Pero ang pinakamasayang part ng taon at sana maging panghabang buhay na ay ang aking pagkakatagpo sa babaeng mamahalin ko.. muli kong naranasan na magmahal at mahalin din ako... naging masigla muli ang aking mga araw sa tuwing kasama ko siya... salamat po at dumating ka sa buhay ko... sabi mo nga... life is fun!!!! :) looking forward for 2008, 2009, 2010 to infinite para sa ating dalawa....

Rock On!!!

Friday, December 7, 2007



December 5, 2007 -- After much speculation…the wait is finally over.

JOURNEY--Neal Schon (guitar), Jonathan Cain (keyboards), Ross Valory (bass), Deen Castronovo (drums)--is proud to introduce fans all over the world to their new lead singer, Arnel Pineda (“pin-eh-da”). He replaces Jeff Scott Soto, who parted ways with the band earlier this year after stepping in for Steve Augeri, who had to leave the band in 2006 for medical reasons.

Arnel hails from Quezon City in the Philippines and has been singing Journey songs--in addition to original material--with his band, The Zoo, for the past couple of years in clubs all over his homeland. Joining the legendary band is a dream come true for him.
“It’s so exciting to sing with one of the best bands in the world. It’ll be a lot of hard work on my part and I’m actually looking forward to the scrutiny I’ll get from the hardcore JOURNEY fans. I know they’ll expect me to sound exactly like ‘the voice’ (Steve Perry), but that will never happen. I know there's only one Steve Perry in this world.”

When it was time for JOURNEY to look for a new lead singer, the internet came to their rescue. Guitarist Neal Schon wanted someone new to the music business, so he turned to YouTube. After finding Arnel singing “Faithfully,” he knew he had found the perfect frontman.

“I was frustrated about not having a singer,” explains guitarist Neal Schon, “so I went on YouTube for a couple of days and just sat on it for hours. I was starting to think I was never going to find anybody. But then I found The Zoo and I watched a bunch of different video clips that they had posted. After watching the videos over and over again, I had to walk away from the computer and let what I heard sink in because it sounded too good to be true. I thought, ‘he can’t be that good.’ But he is that good, he’s the real deal and so tremendously talented. Arnel doesn’t sound synthetic and he’s not emulating anyone. I tried to get a hold of him through YouTube and I finally heard from him that night, but it took some convincing to get him to believe that it really was me and not an imposter.”

Arnel Pineda picks up the story: “My friend Noel picked up the message on YouTube and told me it was from Neal. I thought it was a hoax so I ignored it. Noel said, ‘what if it really was Neal and he wanted to offer you the chance of a lifetime?’ So I e-mailed Neal back and the rest is history.”

“Arnel brings a soulful and passionate voice to JOURNEY,” continues keyboardist Jonathan Cain. “His personality is very well-suited to our music. He’s a sincere, authentic person with a great smile and a big heart. I think fans are really going to love him. With Arnel’s soaring tenor, Journey returns to our heritage sound.”

Schon agrees, “We feel reborn. I think there’s a lot of chemistry between the five of us. At first we were going to go into the studio and just write 4 songs, but now it’s escalated to a lot of great new and diverse material. The stuff sounds tremendous. Everyone’s so stoked about it. We feel very fortunate to have found Arnel.”
JOURNEY is currently working on a new album with legendary producer Kevin Shirley, which they hope to release by spring/summer 2008. Details will be announced early next year.

Effects box contains effects like Overdrive/Distortion, Echo, Reverb, Chorus, Wah-wah (AutoWah & EnvelopeWah), Pitch shifter, Tremolo, I/O Bass/Mid/Treble EQ controls, Compression and Phaser. and also it has a guitar tuner. Its a great tool for a home studio but not recommended on a real gig.

Converting Youtube video to MP3

convert youtube videos to mp3

This service allows you convert a Flash Video / FLV file (YouTube's videos,etc) to MPEG4 (AVI/MOV/MP4/MP3/3GP) file online. It uses a compressed domain transcoder technology (outline in Japanese). It converts FLV to MPEG4 faster and less lossy than a typical transcoder.

When you submit an url, it will download and convert to the video format. Then you can download the converted file.

Now i can have my favorite Live songs in my Ipod. Cool Tool!!!

Weekend in Subic

Its holiday today!!! Last day of Ramadan. Eventhough there's no office today, we will be in Subic for our company's global conference.

It seems Microsoft is hardening Windows XP security features in their SP3. Good thing Microsoft is still supporting XP. Another feature that i like is their Network Access Protection (NAP) due release in Windows Server 2008. NAP will check for updates and service packs and will disallow failed clients.

Age 30 with a Salary of Php120,000

The best career is in the Philippines nowadays. Blue-chip companies are coming our way. This is the place to become successful. The most comfortable life is here. You leave the country because you feel you cannot make it here. If you cannot make it here, you cannot make it anywhere.

Wow!!! that makes me a super underpaid employee. im still not in my 30's but this article shows a reality that we must always aim high in our career.

Teri Hatcher and the Philippine Med School

“Can I just check those diplomas because I just want to make sure that they are not from some med school in the Philippines.”

Hopefully Teri Hatcher's derogatory reference to the Philippine Med school will serve as a challenge to Filipinos. I see a lot of movies that had a negative racial impression to Filipinos, example of this is Jarhead where there's a line about Filipina Order Bride.
Well, maybe we have something to be ashamed off, but we have more to be proud off.

Mabuhay ang Pilipino!!!! Iisang lahi!!!! Iisang dugo!!!!
