mi favorito July 14, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — munlytobako @ 2:55 am

Music has been part of my life, without it my life is so boring. Every one of us has its own favorite music and loves to hear it all over again. My favorite music is from the Seattle grunge band, Nirvana. The first time I heard them was back when I was in elementary. Honestly, I have no idea about that kind of music; the most important thing is that it sounds good. My uncle influenced me on that kind of scene. His favorite local bands such as Eraserheads, Rivermaya, Yano, Introvoyz, The Youth, Teeth, Razorback, Agaw Agimat, etc. have been mine too. Of course, I can’t deny that I was listening to boy bands such as Moffatts, Hanson & Boyzone. I remember my first tape was the first album of Parokya ni Edgar, I bought it when I was in 5th grade. Since then, I found of collecting tapes, basically from a rock bands. It is funny to think that back in elementary I was fond of collecting stickers and stationeries but after a year it switch my interest into tapes. I have more than 100 tapes in my room and lots of them were lost. I saved my allowance just to buy tapes. My mother destroyed some of them because she taught that it’s satanic or something likes that. No kidding. You can even ask my cousins and friends about my insane hobby. ^_^ Also, I remember that I have been influenced by my “crush” to Korn music. I love collecting their albums but when their first single from their 6th album released, I felt that it sounds different; I have no interest in buying it. I have only 5 of their album tapes plus 1 Family Values. That’s the time I first heard and love the music from Incubus, Limp Bizkit and Orgy. Anyway, my favorite genre is grunge. YEAH! The angst, mosh pit, torn jeans, boots or Chuck Taylor sneakers, long hairs, etc. are some of them best describe grunge style.

 

  1. Oh me – Nirvana (originally by The Meat Puppets)
  2. Last kiss – Pearl Jam
  3. I miss you love – Silverchair
  4. Letting the cables sleep – Bush
  5. New slang – The Shins
  6. Coffee and TV – Blur
  7. The Scientist and Don’t Panic – Coldplay
  8. Only God knows why – Kid Rock
  9. Far Behind – Candlebox
  10. Slow Motion – Third Eye Blind

CSI’s Hunks! March 23, 2007

Filed under: Uncategorized — munlytobako @ 3:45 pm

First on my list will be Nick Stokes played by George Eads of CSI: Las Vegas. Serious handsome man but he’s not fearless especially when he was “almost” buried-alive with a bomb attached on his body and when he moves, the bomb will trigger. Of course the team came to rescue him. He specialize in fiber and hair analysis.

Nick is currently single. When he was nine years old, Nick had a traumatic experience, most likely molestation, at the hands of a last-minute replacement babysitter. He never told anyone until 2001, when he confided in Catherine Willows in episode 203, “Overload“. Because of this Nick has trouble investigating crimes against children. Nick was a member of a fraternity when he was in college and is familiar with fraternity hazing, as he tells a fraternity member in the fourth episode, “Pledging Mr. Johnson“.

Nick seems to have had a happy childhood and is close to his parents. In the season five finale “Grave Danger,” it is revealed that his father’s nickname for him is “Pancho”, and he in turn calls his father “Cisco” (a reference to the central characters in The Cisco Kid). His boss, Gil Grissom, later uses the “Pancho” nickname to calm Nick down while they are trying to rescue him from a coffin that has been rigged with explosives. Nick’s father is also a Judge, as referred to by Grissom in the same episode.

Nick has a natural empathy with the people affected by the crimes he investigates. Other members of the team believe that it is better to maintain an emotional distance. This difference in outlook is a source of much comment and occasionally raised voices. Other than that, Nick is usually affable and gets along with his co-workers. He considers co-worker Warrick Brown a very good friend.

 

Danny grew up on Staten Island, in an “Italian Mafia” family under surveillance (as hinted at in the episode “Tanglewood”). As a result, he formed his own set of hybrid ethics, caught between the world of lawbreakers and lawmakers. Though very little is known about the Messer family, Danny openly admits that he has had a very rocky relationship with his older brother, Louie, since a fateful night in 1991. After promising to take Danny to a party in New Jersey with some of his friends, Louie pulls over beside a football stadium where he and three others begin to severely beat a drug dealer, telling him it was an initiation into the Tanglewood Boys gang. When Danny protests, Louie calls him a disgrace and tells him to leave (episode 220, “Run Silent, Run Deep”). Despite the strained relationship that resulted, Danny would often lend money to Louie (episode 211, “Trapped”).

Danny attended college and played minor league baseball until he got into a fight and broke his wrist, after which he went to the police academy and graduated first in his class (episode 122, “The Closer”). CSI team leader Mac Taylor personally selected Danny for his team, an honor and a responsibility that he attempts to live up to each day.

 

Ever since he picked up his first amateur chemistry kit when he was seven, Greg Sanders has wanted to be a scientist. Even though he was told that science was supposed to be a hobby for the pasty-faced and romantically challenged, that did not dissuade him from joining the Science Club in high school, or from majoring in Chemistry in college. He had always balanced lab work with athletics, studying with flirting, and computer work with dating. Addicted to the pursuit of knowledge, Greg has been on a quest to learn all he can about the scientific breakthroughs of the past centuries. And discovering and naming a brand-new theory or element after himself wouldn’t hurt, either.

After years of lobbying for a shot at working in the field with the CSI team, under the watchful eye of Grissom and his co-workers he was able to complete his transition from working in the lab to being a fully fledged CSI. The sometimes-overzealous Sanders realizes he has much more to learn in his professional transition to the world outside the lab.

 

Ryan Wolfe, a former patrol officer, is hired after Tim Speedle is killed on the job. He has a strong background in science, majoring in chemistry at a Boston college and now pursuing a master’s degree in genetics. His studies take a back seat to his job; he graduated top of his class at the police academy, well on his way to a promotion.

He catches the attention of Horatio Caine at the scene of a bus crash. There, Wolfe shows great attention to detail and to the care of his sidearm, reflecting the fixation on minute details emerging from his obsessive-compulsive disorder. Wolfe’s eye for detail wins Caine’s respect, since poor gun maintenance led to the misfire at a critical moment that contributed to Speedle’s death (episode 301, “Lost Son”).

When he first joins the lab, Wolfe has a difficult time with his co-workers. Eric Delko, who had been close to Speedle, is still angry over his friend’s murder, and resents Wolfe as an interloper. Calleigh Duquesne, on the other hand, is concerned because Wolfe’s first case is a possible vehicular homicide involving her alcoholic father, lawyer Kenwall “Duke” Duquesne (episode 303, “Under the Influence”). Over time, however, Wolfe has proved his worth to the crime lab, being more concerned with solving cases than with his personal advancement.

 

During season 1, Hawkes is a Medical Examiner with the NYC Office of the Chief Medical Examiner (OCME). He was a child prodigy who graduated college at eighteen, and by 24 he was a fully board-licensed surgeon. After a tumultuous surgical career in which he was often at odds with his boss and after losing two patients on the operating table (shown in flashback in episode 309, “And Here’s To You, Mrs. Azrael”), he abandoned surgery in favor of the medical examiner’s office. He evidently sleeps at the morgue sometimes, as he has a cot there in episode 103, “American Dreamers.” At the start of season 2, Hawkes moves from the autopsy room out into the field, much to the initial surprise of head CSI Mac Taylor (episode 123, “What You See Is What You See”).

Hawkes is a sympathetic soul who is willing to lend an ear to anyone who needs to talk. During “Murder Sings The Blues” (episode 307) he is shown in flashback to have met a girl at a party. The girl felt unhappy, so Hawkes took her out for a cup of coffee and listened to her tell him her troubles. Afterwards, he gave her his phone number if she ever felt like she needed to talk to him again. The girl is found dead two weeks later onboard a subway car following a rave party, with Hawkes’ phone number still on her person. Hawkes, when he discovers his phone number in the girl’s possession, neglects to tell Mac about his connection to her, which earns him a dressing down from Mac in front of the entire lab. Later, Hawkes apologizes to Mac for not disclosing how he knew the victim and tells his story. Their relationship has clearly mended by episode 309 (“And Here’s To You, Mrs. Azrael”), when Mac confides about his father’s lingering death from cancer, and Sheldon comforts him. This dialogue also indicates that Hawkes is opposed to euthanasia.

 

Warrick is the only member of the team born and raised in Las Vegas. As of season 7, Warrick has never met his father. His mother died when he was seven, leaving Warrick in the care of his maternal grandmother. He grew up in a strict household, and that meant he kept his position as a runner (someone who jots down sports bets and runs between casinos to place those bets) a secret from his grandmother.

Prior to becoming a CSI, Warrick worked as a casino runner throughout his teenage years. He put himself through college working as a taxi driver, a bell captain at the Sahara, selling helicopter rides over the Grand Canyon, and a grave digger before finding his way to the Las Vegas Metropolitan Police Department and its CSI.

Early in the series, Warrick had a severe gambling problem, one that even started to cross into his professional career. In the pilot episode Warrick left a crime scene, leaving a new CSI, Holly Gribbs, without backup so he could place a bet on a team for a judge. The perpetrator of the crime Holly and Warrick were investigating returned to the scene and murdered Holly. Their supervisor, Gil Grissom was supposed to fire Warrick for this, but having already lost one CSI, he did not want to lose another.

Brown can move just as easily through the Clark County courthouse as he can through the Sportsbook at the Hard Rock. To let off steam, he DJs at clubs run by his friends and writes his own songs. Spending his whole life in the city means Warrick knows at least one person in most bars, clubs, and hotels there. He’s connected, and he uses those connections to move between his worlds. He dated a lot of women in his early twenties, but the first time he fell in love, the woman broke his heart. As a result he became more cautious with his lovelife.

Warrick maintains a good friendship with fellow CSI Nick Stokes. Warrick is extremely upset when Nick is kidnapped and buried alive in the two part Season 5 finale, “Grave Danger” parts 1 and 2, as he felt it should have been him to volunteer for the assignment in which Nick was kidnapped (they flipped a coin to see who would take which assignment that evening). Warrick pushed the team as hard as he could when investigating Nick’s disappearance, not knowing what he would do if he was unable to save his friend.

After dating a woman named Tina for a short time, he proposed and quickly married in Season 6. When he announced this, many of his co-workers were surprised, including a somewhat dismayed Catherine Willows. Nearing the Season 6 finale (“Bang-Bang“), Warrick’s marriage seemed to have become rocky, but after a scene when Tina’s supposed infidelity was shown to be her planning a party for Warrick, nothing more of the marriage has been shown. Through the mid-point of Season 7, Warrick still wears his wedding band, which would suggest that he and Tina have worked through their differences.

 

Flack is a homicide detective with the NYPD, known for both his wry wit and his determination to hunt down suspects (even to the point of chasing them down alleys and over rooftops). He was mentored by another cop, Gavin Moran, who he is later forced to arrest after it comes to light that Moran concealed evidence during the course of an investigation (episode 117, “The Fall”). He is both a colleague and a friend to the members of the New York Crime Lab. After Stella Bonasera is attacked in her apartment by her unstable boyfriend, Flack gently helps her through when he comes to the hospital to take her statement (episode 221, “All Access”). His friendship with Mac Taylor is tested when Taylor uncovers evidence that one of Flack’s men is a dirty cop and asks Don to turn over his memo notebook to prove it. Though Flack eventually capitulates, their relationship is a bit tense for a some time after (episode 308, “Consequences,” episode 310. “Sweet 16”). Flack defends Taylor to the detective investigating Sheldon Hawkes, who is the prime suspect in a robbery-homicide, after Taylor locks himself in the interrogation room with Sheldon. Flack affirms that said detective would do the same for him (Flack) (episode 311, “Raising Shane”). He is also close to Danny Messer, attempting to offer him some sound advice in episode 121 (“On the Job”) when it appears that Danny accidentally kills an undercover officer.

We’d like to use this opportunity to raise awareness for issues related to global warming. We all take advantage of the great natural resources the earth gives us and we have no desire to see its shores and communities flooded. Join us in the virtual march to Washington and help raise awareness about this critical issue. Get involved and take an active interest by signing up, telling a friend and getting educated! One person working diligently alone can do wonders, but many people working harmoniously together can accomplish worlds. Thank you.

 

 

 

Guster

  • Marching Since: October 16, 2006

Things we once considered “alternative” are now viable options we each can make. The power of consumers “voting with dollars” cannot be underestimated. Making the smallest adjustments in our buying patterns could have huge cumulative effects–even if it’s something as small as buying a non-petroleum based lip balm. For Guster, we’ve started by filling our tour bus with biodiesel, offsetting each show with renewable energy, and requesting organic food and recycling backstage. We know that this is just the beginning of what we can do to lessen our impact and are trying to increase our efforts each time we tour, while recognizing it’s not an “all or nothing” proposition. In a 2006 MTV/CBS News Poll of 13-24 year olds, they cited the environment as the most important problem their generation will have to deal with. 81% of young people in the same poll said that steps need to be taken right away to stop Global Warming. We’re marching because we are aware of our unique relationship with our fans, and hope to turn them on to ways they can make a difference. Through the environmental non profit, REVERB (founded by Guster guitarist Adam Gardner and his wife Lauren Sullivan), we’re continuing to not only green our tours but also educate and activate our fans to join us in the fight against Global Warming. Guster and Reverb launched the first annual “Campus Consciousness Tour” in spring 2006 — a national tour of colleges and universities combining music, environmental awareness, and community service. Bringing together local and national non-profits, campus organizations, students, administrators and green business leaders in a fun, interactive atmosphere, this tour’s aim is to educate and energize young people to better their personal, community, and global health.

 

Jon Bon Jovi

  • Location: NY – 10012
  • Marching Since: August 21, 2006

I’m like anyone else. As the father of four young children, the more I learned about the issue of Global Warming, the more I educated myself, the more I was driven to make whatever difference I could. At home, the family SUV was traded in for a Hybrid. At work, Bon Jovi are addressing how we can tour in the future and leave a smaller carbon footprint behind. On tour this summer, educational materials will be a part of the concert experience. And we’re making a donation of monies into offset programs (including Native Energy) to help compensate for the carbon footprint our tour left behind. This is not a political issue, it doesn’t matter what side of the aisle you’re on. This is a moral issue. Each of us are obligated to do what we can to be part of the solution. And it’s easy. Shut the lights off when you leave the room; lower the air conditioning; buy energy efficient appliances; make your next car a hybrid. Every little bit helps.

 

Sheryl Crow

  • Location: CA – 90046
  • Marching Since: December 12, 2006

We live on a beautiful planet, but the state of its health will be the deciding factor in our own health and longevity. We seem to forget that the earth is a living organism and that when it dies, we die. As we watch our climate change radically, it is imperative that we change the way we treat our planet.

 

 

 

Barenaked Ladies

  • Location: ON –
  • Marching Since: February 5, 2007

We’ve had a great time greening our tour; from using biodiesel in our trucks and buses to making sure there’s recycling backstage, as well as more re-useable cups, plates and cutlery. But the most rewarding part of this whole thing has been the response from our fans. During our fall tour, our American fans offset over 1,000,000 miles of driving through carbon offsets, via our Barenaked Planet stickers. We’re continuing our travels across Canada this winter, and we’ll see if we Canucks are as green as we say we are! We’re excited to be adding our voices to the Stop Global Warming Virtual March and invite you join too!

Strip Out The Fans, Add 8 Gallons of Cooking Oil February 22, 2007

Filed under: Computer Stuff — munlytobako @ 2:59 pm

Dousing Your Athlon FX-55 With Eight Gallons Of Cooking Oil?

Common sense dictates that submerging your high-end PC in cooking oil is not a good idea. But, of course, engineering feats and science breakthroughs were made possible by those who dared to explore the realms of the non-conventional. Members of the Munich-based THG lab are only too happy to confirm this fact. And not only did we find that our AMD Athlon FX-55 and GeForce 6800 Ultra equipped system didn’t short out when we filled the sealed shut PC case with cooking oil – but the non-conductive properties of the liquid coupled created a totally cool and quiet high-end PC, devoid of the noise pollution of fans. The PC case – or should we say tank – also offered a new and novel way to display and show off your PC components.

 

Remember our Record Attempt: The 5 GHz Project when we went to cooling extremes with liquid nitrogen, Build Your Own XGA Projector! or the PC that manages with just 37 Watts of power? And don’t forget the Espresso machine in the PC case. And now? Many hours of work along with preparation time coupled with numerous glitches are behind our new one-of-a-kind specimen.

Technically, our attractive high-end PC can keep up with the best of the crop as far as performance goes – minus the noise, of course, associated with an extremely loud standard 08/15 case. Indeed, the large volume of liquid guarantees absolutely silent operation – no fans are running. And even under maximum load the three major building blocks remain sufficiently cool: processor, graphics card and chipset.

 

The Do-It-Yourself Oil PC: Pour eight gallons of vegetable oil into the running benchmark operation and the silent Athlon-FX-55 system is ready. A GeForce 6800 Ultra as well as other components are included.

 

Our video 18 follows a completely new approach to the cooling of a high-end PC system: eight gallons of oil are poured here into a specially prepared case with powerful components. And all that during benchmark operation!

The videos from the Munich-based THG lab have been followed by a wide audience ever since the first film in 2001. As we did for our previous films, we offered Video 18 in three different formats from the get-go. All the while, we’ve always attempted to achieve an optimum picture quality with a comparably very low bit rate.

In order to cater to the wishes of a few readers who don’t want to install an additional video codec, we offer the new video in WMV9 format for the MS Windows Media Player as well as for Apple in Quicktime format (H.264).
