Indio Internet Weekly Digest 2

Every weekend, Indolent Indio comes out with a short and hastily-done roundup of things we’ve found on the Internet (pinoy chapter, of course.)

Quality, quantity and content may vary.

"Meh Ganon?"

"Meh Ganon?"

Prof. Luis Teodoro says the Internet has allowed a class of “Epsilon semi-morons to throw at the world at large anything that comes into their so-called minds — bad grammar, worse logic, total ignorance and all.” Well, this is a brave new world, indeed.

<s>ettle natin ito: Sandwich vocalist Raimund Marasigan allegedly mauled some dude at an FHM party. Get into the action before it turns into a typical PEP thread of Kapuso vs. Kapamilya.

Ateneo Fashion Watch, an Ateneo fashion blog is born, pushing the Philippines ever closer to an all-out class war.

(UPDATE: The Siege Malvar calls our Ateneo Fashion Watch, and raises with Green Olympus, a tumblog of “gods and goddesses” from De La Salle University. Well played, Mr. The Siege.)

BetterPhilippines (if that’s even his real name) is peeved at politicians (or their paid hacks) following him on twitter.

Humanap ka ng pundit: Filipino Voices tackles bottled water, and how it’s a scam (long debate on why it’s a scam in the comments.)

tl;dr= bottled water is a scam.

Indolent reader Filo sends this video of Capt. Barbell flying backwards.

Also, Facebook: The Movie? I hope it’s an action flick based on Mafia Wars.

Blogger Brian Gorrell is taking a break from blogging due to health issues in case you were wondering whatever happened to him.

Douche bag Richard Gutierrez gets his libel case against PEP thrown out by the court. (As always, the comments section is the best social barometer.)

  1. elitist, sure. but how much different is this rubbing alcohol site from the society pages? (then again, those in the society pages didn’t pass a really easy entrance exam)

    (suddenly i’m an elitist.)
    (i’m having an obnoxious streak, methinks.)

  3. They can’t be serious! I mean, look…

    Is THIS ONEf_theycantbesm_26a62ef.jpg
    better than THIS ONEf_realfashionm_33d23a4.jpg
    ???
    Fashionable? Style?? Are they nucking futs?

  4. Imagine coming to an executive position job interview wearing that pink (fuchsia?) wig. It’ll be hilarious!
    (A pink goatee would be the counterpart for women, I imagine, lol)

    Hey why don’t somebody create a similar blog for tattooed geeks? Like, I mean, no jocks, no vixens, just the smart ones who sport tats? Wouldn’t that be cool? The popular and sporty ones could display all they want, that’s a given. But the nerds, if any of them out there have hidden (or otherwise) body art, it would be refreshing to see them out in the open y’know?

  5. Oh thank you Jesus! Yes, I have heard someone finally kick the nuts out of these assholes! FUck you Kris! Fuck you Boy Abunda…

    But still ever since I found out Prada was a COmmie I just can’t say anything wrong about fashion as a precipitant for “class war”

    uhm, what do kris aquino and boy abunda have to do with any of the topics here?

    Here’s a link of video game tattoos:

    Whoops. I should’ve been more specific. I meant tattooed geeks here in the Philippines. Tattooed American kids look so typical to me now. But yeah I think we’d see tats of video game characters, Bruce Lee, and maybe even Maria Ozawa (FHM100’s #55). Unless of course they prefer Sarah Geronimo (FHM100’s #28). Wtf.

  8. FreeSince09 :

    Nothing, they represent for me the fashionista classes. They epitomize them don’t they?

    Glamour is their nicotine, my friend, even if they only imagine it (because some fashionistas are fucking ugly no matter what they do or wear). Sure these fashionistas tend to be affluent, educated yet shallow and profoundly materialistic. But they do try to redeem themselves by buying into commercialized spirituality and shifting to green fashion (?), which does diddly squat.
    Look at the bright side: With Boy and Kris you can show your kids exactly what not to become someday under any circumstance for their own salvation.

  9. Mmmm. Onetamad is right. With the exception of Boy and Kris (c/o FreeSince09), these are just kids being kids. It’s a time in their lives when bad ideas seem like good ideas too, and they’ll get away with it because they’re still kids.

    Haay, turning off elitist mode. For now at least.

    FreeSince09, here’s a treat for you dude. Click on my link. 😀

  10. @FreeSince09:Glad you were, uhm, MOVED by it.

    As you’ve seen, Boy even gave the camera that open-mouth spunk-seeking seductive look for his male (?) audience to enjoy (i.e., detest, abhor, loathe, etc.).

    We probably share the same view of these two, but they’re really nothing to be taken seriously, so chill. Trust me, Kris will never be Oprah, Boy will never be Ellen. They could be Richard and Raymond if they like; one of them’s the power douche and the other is the seemingly smarter but utterly talentless clone. Part of our fashion elite none-the-less.

    @onetamad: Sorry if it’s getting off-topic. I was waiting for your post on Kris Aquino as you mentioned in another Indolent article. Anyway, jester and Monty are getting too lawyery at your Mike Chanco post so I’m being obnoxious here instead.

  11. @Filo: You’re right! I do owe you a Kris Aquino post!

    Don’t worry about going off-topic. Like a philosophy class, this blog ought to be a marketplace of ideas. I’m just the fishmonger. You can be the snatcher who’s only doing it to feed his family.

  12. Wow, marvelous blog layout! How long have you been blogging for?

    you made blogging look easy. The overall look of
    your web site is excellent, let alone the content!

  13. Anyone who would be willing to exercise in a room heated to over 100 degrees should have their head examined, or so I once thought.
