American Idol 9 first week on stage

A LOT of people are so disappointed with the performances of AI’s Top 24, and I’m one of them.

I really expected a lot from them! But a lot of my early faves disappointed me.  And yes, Simon is extra mean this season, and IMO, Ellen is just doing okay.

So here’s my assessment of this week’s performance:

Disappointed with Ashley and Janell. Suicide it is  realmad
Haeley = Nightmare… Angela Martin deserves her spot!  skeptical

i LOVE Didi!!! love love love her voice… maybe next time she should pick something upbeat, but will still preserve that cool-sounding voice.

Siobhan is promising too 🙂

Todrick Hall – his version of since u’ve been gone is dsiturbing – 6/10
Aaron Kelly – he needs more energy when performing – 8/10
Jermaine Sellers – the next Adam Lambert?! Disappointed with his perf – 6/10
Tim Urban – weak voice, so stay low. – 6/10
Joe Munoz – LOVE the SONG. Haha! But his version is cool. Like it! – 9/10
Tyler Grady – Pitchy and Boring. I’m not diggin’ his style. – 6/10
Lee Dewyze – love that raspy voice, but I agree with the song choice. – that was not so good. – 8/10
John Park – Boring – 7/10
Michael Lynch – Not a fan!! parang saling-pusa lang sya – 6/10
Alex Lambert – love his voice too.. there’s something in that raspy voice. More energy too – 8/10
Casey James – the vibrato is good, but I’m still not satisfied. safe. – 8/10
Andrew Garcia – i honestly love the song choice… I think he did great 🙂 – 9/10



Janell Wheeler and Joe Munoz were booted out, disappointed with this result.

Angela Rodriguez and Tyler deserves to go, I’m happy with that 😛

The Only Exception

Awesome lyrics. Awesome song. Awesome video. Awesome Haley Williams. Paramore can definitely go mellow… love this! 😀

The Only Exception

when i was younger i saw
my daddy cry
and curse at the wind
he broke his own heart
and I watched
as he tried to reassemble it

and my momma swore
that she would
never let herself forget
and that was the day that I promised
I’d never sing of love
if it does not exist

you are the only exception
you are the only exception
you are the only exception
you are the only exception

maybe i know somewhere
deep in my soul
that love never lasts
and we’ve got to find other ways
to make it alone
keep a straight face

and i’ve always lived like this,
keeping it comfortable, distance
and up until now i had sworn to myself
that I’m content with loneliness
because none of it was ever worth the risk

well you are the only exception
you are the only exception
you are the only exception
you are the only exception

i’ve got a tight grip on reality
but i can’t let go of what’s in front of me here
i know you’re leaving in the morning when you wake up leave me with some
kind of proof it’s not a dream
oh oh oh

you are the only exception
you are the only exception
you are the only exception
you are the only exception

repeat chorus 1x

and I’m on my way to believing
oh and I’m on my way to believing

Happy Valentine’s to all. and Happy New Year too. Let’s all be happy and awesome and hopeful. Enjoy this track from Justin Nozuka. i’m LOVIN’ this song right now. Super. Here’s My Heart Is Yours

My Heart is Yours

This morning I woke up beside the river
The grass and trees were green, flowers became blooming, birds were sweetly singing
Stronger and much deeper now than ever
Lying by your side, never feel the stride
I know it’s real this time

‘Cause my heart is yours
My heart is
My heart is yours
My heart is

The sun falls behind the greatest mountain
And every moment passing by, some color in the sky
Darling close your eyes
Now we are flying, we are flying
Over the mountain, to follow the sun
And back to the river, and the evening has won

‘Cause my heart is yours
My heart is
My heart is yours
My heart

Oh, darling when you look at me
It hits just like a summer breeze
My heart
Hold me close and underneath the moonlight melody
Darling dance with me
Darling dance with me
Darling dance with me

Darling, in the morning light
Everything will be alright
Everything will be alright
My heart is yours


Perfectly Lonely

I guess it is the right time to let out the bitterness before that big special day. Sharing this song from John Mayer, which definitely the theme of all the singles out there! Here’s Perfectly Lonely by John Mayer 😉


how me doin?

Yes. I’m self-centered that way.

So what’s up with me? Lately I’m very busy with… hmmm.. I dunno.  Now I’m wondering what are the things I did.

Work.  Our project just officially started last week.  Before, papetiks petiks lang kami, doing dynamic exercises and stuff. But last week, the specs and codes finally came in. And now, we’re starting the translation of the documents.  So far, I’m enjoying it… though I’ve been very worried these past few days…

Our boss told us some bad news.  Yes, I consider it as a bad news, a nightmare.  There is a possibility daw na may matransfer sa ibang department, and what’s bothering me is that I’m a possible candidate base na rin sa mga requirements. It’s sad coz I really really don’t wanna leave my dept. right now 😦

Nihongo. Yeah, our class already started again… so far, it’s good.  And right now, I’m promising to myself that I will study harder this time.

There are also a lot of happenings these past few days:

-American Idol is getting more exciting, LOVE Ellen!

-Then we (julie & aisza) watched the MusicFest 2010 concert featuring Boyce Avenue, Jabbawockeez, and KRIS Allen

-We (rushers) also went to Alex’s Birthday (Acer’s Baby)

-Our team ate a humongous Pizza from CalbaPizza(?)

-I watched the Monster Movie Premiere of Valentine’s Day. Big Thanks to Cherry and my boss, Boss Manny. ü

-I went out with my college friends to celebrate a send off party to one of our classmates, Eco, who’s leaving the country hopefully this March.

It has been a very busy month for me.  And I just love the fact that I’m balancing everything. 🙂

Anong petsa na!?
