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 page2.googlesyndication.com and redirects the request to gambling and pornography sites.

Penoi 2007 Year End Report

Awww.... what can i say. My 2007 rocks!!! Simula ng taon, medyo hindi siya maganda.. Andyan na biglang nagsarado ang company na kung saan ako nagwork. Bigla tuloy akong nagkalaptop kasi hindi sila nagbayad ng suweldo namin. Buset!!!
Hay, ang hirap talaga ng walang pera, hindi ka magalaw ng maayos. buti na lang at nanalo kami sa SEO contest ng Ituloy AngSulong.. at ilang raket sa isang training center sa Ortigas. kahit paano nakaraos naman
Naemploy ako ng isang Danish company sa makati na kung saan i handle IT Security. Naging maayos naman ang aking pananalapi. hindi kalakihan, ngunit hindi din naman kababaan ang salary. kung baga tama lang.. for the meantime.. hehe...
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....

JOURNEY WELCOMES ARNEL PINEDA

JOURNEY WELCOMES ARNEL PINEDA
WITH “OPEN ARMS” TO THEIR FAMILY
AS THE BAND’S NEW LEAD SINGER

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.
