DIY:Pinoy Big Brother yourself

Some people wonder how and what is it like to be inside the house of Kuya (Pinoy Big Brother). I know, this is some kind of a question simply because everyone can see almost everything on the net and of course, the edited version shown on T.V. that confuses my little brain. There seems to be no continuity as the show introduces a lot of segments at random (cut and paste it everywhere baby), meron pang flashbacks, squeezed everything in one episode and there you have it, the show for the day. At the end I wonder what is what and which is which (tama ba ito?). Parang nagbabasa ka ng isang chapter sa isang book then noong nasa gitna ka na, the next thing you will read are series of chapters inside the one you are reading. (Magulo ba ang sinasabi ko dito?)

Perhaps, this is the only way (confuse you like most politicians and government officials do) they can show that there is something exciting going on inside considering that the most frequent activities that the housemates do inside are conversing to each other endlessly. The reason for this, I guess, is that many of the housemates learned the tricks on how to play it safe from the previous season.

Come to think of it, we are also seeing and hearing these endless conversations and useless talks from our polluteitical leaders and EcoNOnomic managers everyday. And most of us, like the 24/7 subscribers of the PBB show have to pay to watch them tear our lives apart.

Ah, I know you are now lost with this post. Yes, you are! This post is like the Pinoy Big Brother show and a part of our lives as Pinoys, magulo.

Honestly, this post is actually about broadcasting yourself over the net 24/7 or doing a Big Brother like show for yourself – in case you are one of those “some people” who wonder how or what is it like to be inside the house of Kuya.

Why would I do that and how would I do it?

My so-called work of art – brushed

Here is my so-called work of art titled “brushed“. This is a free stroke which as you can see is made of downward strokes, random strokes and stroke of luck.

This is done using a great software called ArtRage 2.

I am Twitter-ing on the web

It is not the light chirping sound made by certain birds, neither a similar sound, especially light, tremulous speech or laughter or an agitation or excitement.

But it could be considered as such because almost everyone in the net is now taken by it’s twitting spell and millions are now twitter-ing addicts minions. Even Technorati is at it. Click here.

If this is not what we thought it is then what really is Twitter?

TwitterTwitter is A global community of friends and strangers answering one simple question: What are you doing? Answer on your phone, IM, or right here on the web!

Twitter is where you can say the most with the fewest number of words. Your quick thoughts or ideas are out immediately into the web via SMS, IM, or Browser. At lightning speed, everyone knows what you are doing, what you will do and what you have just done, somewhere or wherever.

You may ask, aside from what you have written above, what else is your idea on how Twitter can be useful? The truth is I have no idea. Having no idea of what is its usefulness is I guess one of the reasons why it is interesting right now.

So, just ride on, start Twitter-ing like everyone else in the whole wide web.

Do you want to know what I am Twitter-ing about? Please click here.

Notice: Twitter is addictive.


Kris Aquino, Hope Centeno, et al – SEO Experiment

This is the best time to do a little experiment on SEO using the the following keywords: Kris Aquino, Hope Centeno, James Yap, GMA 7 and ABS-CBN. Let us see if we can ride the hottest issue on Philippine television about the love triangle of Kris Aquino, James Yap and Hope Centeno and how this post will fare in the search engine result pages.

Last Saturday and Sunday, GMA 7’s Star Talk and S Files aired the exclusive interview of Hope Centeno about her 11-month love affair with James Yap, the husband of Kris Aquino, daughter of former President Cory Aquino and the host of various shows of ABS-CBN, the rival television network of GMA 7.

Both Kris Aquino and Hope Centeno claimed that they were victims. If both Hope Centeno and Kris Aquino were victims, how do you consider James Yap?

Kris Aquino, on her various interviews said that it was GMA 7’s way of getting back at her and Hope Centeno is being used against her. Kris Aquino is pregnant while Hope Centeno claimed she too might be pregnant with James Yap’s kid. (On Hope’s interview on Sunday, she said that she does not know yet.)

How long this issue on Kris Aquino, James Yap and Hope Centeno stays in the Philippine television? Who gains the highest rating (GMA 7 or ABS-CBN) is another interesting story to watch out for.

Crazy Question: Not related to SEO experiment. Meron kayang politician o politicians natin ang sasakay sa balitang ito? What do you think?
