sesame street sub cult

What/who is a "Snuffleupagus?"

See that "guy" on the left? That's Mr. Snuffleupagus, Big Bird's best friend... also called Snuffy. Humans never saw Snuffy, leading the audience to believe he only existed in Big Bird’s imagination.

So when a friend claims that he or she has a bf or a gf which no one has met yet, then your friend has his or her version of a "SNUFFLEUPAGUS."

cannabis sativa sub cult

I've been around it all my life. When I was in grade school, I hung out with my older brothers and they let me try it. In high school and college, my friends were into it too. Yes, even in the workplace ever since I started working until today.

But guess what, I am still unsubcultured. Why... I STILL DON'T KNOW HOW TO ROLL A DAMN JOINT. I never really learned how to after all these years.

I guess that's how I roll.

hits from the 80s sub cult

Used to wear them in HS. Never thought they'd make a comeback.

Scored a pair last December for old times sake. When it comes to sneaks/kicks/shoes I am semi subcultured.

old school hollywood sub cult

This is Humphrey Bogart, Hollywood big shot from the 20s to the 50s

What's my point? Eto lang...

Hanggang ngayon, hindi ko maintindihan ang fascination ng Pinoy sa pangalan na Bogart, kahit na he died in '57. Cinema and real life gangsters, pet dogs, jeans, ordinary Pinoys, bars and drinking joints... have been named after him.

Do Pinoys think it's cool, suave and macho to have a name like BOGART?

I really don't get it.

discovery channel tv plug jingle, unsubcultured version

I love alcohol
I love beer
But now I can't drink
Because I have gout

Boom de yada, boom de yada
Boom de yada, boom de yada

I love women
I love g2g action
Specially when they're both hot

Boom de yada, boom de yada
Boom de yada, boom de yada

I love downloading
I love netsurfing
I love Fbook status messages
That's all I do at work

Boom de yada, boom de yada
Boom de yada, boom de yada

I love malling
I love buying useless stuff
I love wasting money
and regretting it after

Boom de yada, boom de yada
Boom de yada, boom de yada

I love the ocean
I love bodyboarding
I love getting wasted on the beach
And regretting it after

Boom de yada, boom de yada
Boom de yada, boom de yada

I love channel surfing
It gets my fingers moving
I love the History Channel
More than MTV

Boom de yada, boom de yada
Boom de yada, boom de yada

I love basketball
I love the Blue Eagles
But if they lose
I'll just drink some more

Boom de yada, boom de yada
Boom de yada, boom de yada

I love my Honda
Her name is Apols
She takes me everywhere

Boom de yada, boom de yada
Boom de yada, boom de yada

I love my gadgets

I love my Laptop
I love my LCD TV

Boom de yada, boom de yada
Boom de yada, boom de yada

I love the whole world
Specially on Saturday and Sunday
I love doing nothing
And staring into space

Boom de yada, boom de yada
Boom de yada, boom de yada

pulis patola sub cult

In Pinoy comedy movies, the Police are always portrayed as bumbling, inept, stupid fools. Yesterday... while the world watched... real life imitated "art" as Manila's supposedly finest botched a hostage taking. There must be a rulebook for hostage taking somewhere but these guys managed to break every rule. It was so sad to see dead tourists.

Unlike the movies, real life is not funny.

uaap sub cult

The ADMU-DLSU second round game was so boring, many greenies left even before the game ended.

The massacre could have been more than 30 points if not for the damn refs who were maybe keeping the score close for the Binondo point spread.

unsubcultured bucket list item #7

Had gout and couldn't walk for two days. Check.

august 21 sub cult

Here's my sucky Warholian tribute to pareng Noy-ni.

I thank you for the sacrifice you made 27 years ago.

But I don't thank you for spawning that creature called Kris Aquino.

club dredd sub cult

Club Dredd used to be the bastion of Pinoy alternative music. The operative words are "used to be."

Friday night. Eastwood. Went out drinking after visiting the opening night of an artist friend's group exhibit. It was our first time to drink in Eastwood for a very very long time so we didn't know where to drink. So we went to the Gweilos area. It was full so we went up to the "new" Club Dredd. One of my friends was so excited 'cause he might hear a punk rock band or something.

But the moment we opened the door, we didn't hear the thundering sound of alternative rock. We heard this...

"All the Single Ladies" by Beyonce.

Huuuu-what da fuck!!!
There must be something really wrong with this world.

new wave sub cult

Salamat at mababaw lang ang kaligayahan ko... round 1:30 am, driving home tipsy from Jack Coke after a night out with old advertising friends... listening to my new wave playlist on the Ipod... then Under the Milky Way by the Church played... TOTALLY MADE MY DAY.

Sometimes when this place gets kind of empty
Sound of their breath fades with the light
I think about the loveless fascination
Under the Milky Way tonight

Lower the curtain down on Memphis
Lower the curtain down all right
I got no time for private consultation
Under the Milky Way tonight

Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find
Wish I knew what you were looking for
Might have known what you would find

And it's something quite peculiar
Something shimmering and white
Leads you here despite your destination
Under the Milky Way tonight


Under the Milky way tonight..
Under the Milky Way tonight...

bookworm sub cult

My all time top 3 favorite books. These things I can read over and over again. Sadly, lost my copy of the leftmost book.

unsubcultured photo tripping

unsubcultured through the eyes of an artist

Got this via a trade from my artist officemate. Naka frame pa. And all I had to do was give up my old copy of the book ON THE ROAD by Jack Kerouac.

So now you know how I will look like in a cartoon world.

flash mob sub cult

You know, that dance thing they did on Oprah?

Well as usual, Pinoy's are copying it.

Every motherfucking event is doing it.


unsubcultured milestone

a MASSIVE 8 followers!

Jesus had more but who cares?

Congrats to me!!!

hoops sub cult

They defeated two strong teams to reach the finals.

They were supposed to be dead tired when they faced a powerhouse team in the finals - a team that had second and third stringers that could have played as starters for other teams.

But they had poise, character, a good coach and good players that played as a team.

Congratulations to ALASKA for beating SAN MIGUEL.

Just goes to prove that packing your team with all the players money can buy does not guarantee a championship.

Sorry SMB.
I love your beer.
But your team sucks.

first crush ni unsubcultured...

ay si samba/jazz singer Astrud Gilberto. That was waaay back in the 70s when I was a kid growing up in Baguio. My bro used to collect a lot of jazz records and she was part of my brother's collection. When I was a kid, I was jazz subcultured.

unsubcultured movie question

How come they don't finish the shit with this anymore?

Friday, August 13, 2010

pinoy movie sub cult

The age of the Pinoy action star has been shot dead. Kilala ninyo sila... yung naka leather o maong jacket kahit mainit... savior ng mga damsel in distress kapag hina-harass sa neighborhood sari-sari store ng mga lalaking umiinom ng gin... di nauubusan ng bala... matindi gumalaw... di namamatay kahit nabaril, etc.

Today, they've been replaced by softies in romance movies with names like Piolo, Gerald, John Lloyd, etc. And the only action scene they're required to do is run after their lady love to give em flowers. Astig diba.

i just heard a totally unsubcultured radio station disc jockey...

I don't remember the station but I heard this stupid dumbass DJ ask his partner why Eminem named himself after the chocolate brand M and M's.


Eminem named himself that because his real name is MARSHALL MATHERS. That's two Ms stupid. M and M becomes Eminem, stupid radio disc jockey.

blind people sub cult

I may be unsubcultured, but good thing I know about "Braille."

If not, I wouldn't have understood the ending of this movie...

music sub cult

In the movie ONCE, the lead stars were recording their songs in a studio. When done, the producer/tech suggested that they "road test" what they've recorded because they've been stuck in a place with great acoustics for so long. So they hopped inside a car and went on a sound trip around town.

That's also how I gauge a song if I like it or not. If it's great driving music, whether on long road trips or just short trips to the mall or office, then you will be on my playlist.

sick with gout sub cult

Part of the job of this blog is to experience new sub cults. So on Thursday, August 5, I was FORCED TO EXPERIENCE GOUT for the first time in my life. I couldn't walk cause my left foot was sore and all. So I telephoned a doc and my cousin so I could learn more about the... GOUT SUB CULT.

My cousin "welcomed me to the club." Some club. Damn, just "walking" to the john to piss was one of the hardest struggles I ever experienced.

He suggested I take two meds. One was CHIN LOK TUNG. But you can only get this in a certain drugstore in Chinatown. Wow talk about being in an Indiana Jones movie. But he swears by it. And I believe him.

But since there was no way in the world I'd get to Chi town [banyo pa nga lang hirap nako], he suggested another med called COLCHICINE. But it had a side effect. LBM. It flushes out the uric acid in your system.

The doc I called suggested CELEBREX.

Anyway, surfing the net for gout shit, I learned that it was a rich man's disease. Then it attacked the wrong person. But I was in on the age range.

One good thing about it though... I was able to do a movie marathon. Great.

So this is day 2. The Colchicine and the Celebrex seem to be working. Maybe I can feel normal on Saturday or Sunday.

Geez, unsubcultured, subcultured, whatever. My lifestyle has finally caught up with me.

unsubcultured definition

What is

[1] The act of making a complicated movie which will make intellectuals feel intellectually superior because they think they understood the movie in one sitting

[2] The act of making the studio happy for making a complicated film that people won't understand and will therefore watch it one or two more time/s. If they're really geeks, they might watch it 3 or more times. Therefore studio makes lotsa moolah

[3] The act of not wanting to watch a certain movie again because it was tiring enough the first time

[4] The act of looking for blogs that explain the shit that happened in the movie

[5] The smile on Director's Christopher Nolan's knowing he has fooled lotsa people

[6] A film that people call the film of the year... BUT NOT IN MY UNSUBCULTURED UNIVERSE. In your dreams geeks.

travel sub cult

This November 26-30, my friends and I will immerse ourselves in the Dumaguete [sub] culture. Thank you Cebu Pac for your low rates. Thank you friends for making me commit. Can't wait.

hollywood sub cult

A tale of two "Oracles"

This is the obviously NON-HOT Oracle from the Matrix Revolutions

And this is the HOT [understatement] Oracle from the movie 300...

So what were the Wachowski brothers thinking?

zombie movie sub cult

This is George Romero...

He popularized the zombie movie starting with Night of the Living Dead in '68.

Nowadays he' still at it with films like Survival of the Dead and Diary of the Dead.

That's around 40+ years of "doing" the undead.

Maybe he died in the 80s or 90s and turned into a zombie.

clubbing sub cult

Last Saturday my friends went to this club called Members Only. Didn't go with them because if I did, eh di tugs tugs tugs tugs tugs subcultured nako. Ayoko nga.
