advertising + marketing sub cult

Saw this on Facebook. 

IMHO, all those copywriters who think they're good, won awards and all... well, they're nothing compared to this shoe repairman! 

Better than all the ads I've seen on the One Show, Advertising Age, Adobo Mag, etc.

starcraft sub cult

This is a Zerg.

My geeky officemate used this creature from the Starcraft game to describe a word my writer used in writing a script. 

Being unsubcultured, I asked him what a Zerg was. 

Hence this good for nothing blog entry.

with this post, i just made a personal record... most posts in a month [beating the 122 of August 2011]...

I love January.

canine sub cult

Meet Moochie. I don't own him. He lives in my sister's house for now because his owner [my nephew's girlfriend] is in Japan. Glad to have a dog to play with while at my sista's house. Best of all, I don't feed him... and I don't have to clean up after him. 

showbiz sub cult

When I was grade school and high school, we were always herded by teachers to a room or to big place because we were "required" to be there. Today, I experienced the same thing all over again as "the bosses" required us to assemble somewhere in the compound 
for this... 

Can't bite the hands that feed ya.

no, this is not a page from Good Housekeeping or Philippine Tatler or Metro Society magazine...

This is my rich cousin's house. Yep, Unsubcultured has rich relatives. Just like any other family, there are those who have really hit it big time. And those which are still middle of middle class, which is my family. And that is why I still slave away.

 Anyway, had Sunday lunch at this crib in Forbes Park.

Paintings by the man himself... national artist Vicente Manansala...

No one ever uses this pool. Except maybe the insects who hang here every afternoon.

I think my ass is in Miami...


Nope. That ain't my ride. I'm not a pimp like my lady cousin. 

basketball sub cult

I hate Lebron but I love this...

this blog is in what category?

Last Saturday, while drunk during a friend's birthday a friend who may or may not be drunk as I was effectively defined/categorized my blog. After groping for words, Huie said that this was a SATIRE. 

I guess so. Check out what wikipedia has to say...

Satire is primarily a literary genre or form, although in practice it can also be found in the graphic and performing arts. In satire, vices, follies, abuses, and shortcomings are held up to ridicule, ideally with the intent of shaming individuals, and society itself, into improvement.[1] Although satire is usually meant to be funny, its greater purpose is often constructive social criticism, using wit as a weapon.
A common feature of satire is strong irony or sarcasm—"in satire, irony is militant"[2]—but parody, burlesque, exaggeration, juxtaposition, comparison, analogy, and double entendre are all frequently used in satirical speech and writing. This "militant" irony or sarcasm often professes to approve of (or at least accept as natural) the very things the satirist wishes to attack.
Satire is nowadays found in many artistic forms of expression, including literature, plays, commentary, and media such as lyrics.

tennis + grand slam + aussie open + sneakerheads sub cult

Stopped being a tennis fan when the likes of Borg and Mcenroe retired. But the Aussie open was epic. Anyone could have won it. It was just the breaks of the game [all I know how to say it using basketball terms]. 

That said, one thing stood out to me... the SNEAKERS! And on the looks department, Djokovic's Adidas beats Nadal's Nike by a love set.

twitter + pornography sub cult

The latest post from one of 3 porn stars I follow on Twitter...

Kickin back at home reading a script for my next movie...2 pages into it and I already love it. This is good...this is good

Cool. I never knew porn people took their scripts seriously, just like mainstream Hollywood movie people. And did actual writers did take time, felt the inspiration, waited for a surge of creativity to write such scripts? Awesome.

this is sooooooo true of the advertising [and tv network] sub cult...

after all these years, these zombies still linger in the alternative poprock music sub cult


apples, my car celebrated her 68,000th K-day yesterday. Happy K-day partner in crime!

am i getting old... or am i just acting my age... or what?

Last weekend, my friends and I went to La Union. My male friend is my age, 44 years old. While my female friend is in her 30s. They're the type of people who go drinking EVERY NIGHT in Manila, getting drunk and stoned to the max 'til waaaay past midnight.

I, on the other hand, only drink on weekends. On weeknights, I prefer geeking out in my room. That said, we were our usual selves Saturday afternoon to evening in La Union. We were drinking beer, then rum. And occasionally, my friends would slip out and smoke pot. I didn't join them because when I get high on weed, I fall into a "pothole" and turn in to a wallflower.

Soon it was time for bed, for me at least. I was tired. I wanted my precious rest. I WAS ON VACATION TOO, YA KNOW. But my "party monster" friends just wouldn't stop. They drank, smoked weed, smoked cigs inside the room. Hello second hand smoke. They were so noisy, they even drunk called other friends.

I was the happiest person alive when they decided to trip some more and leave the resort. They returned a few hours later and thankfully, did not bother me anymore. I guess party monsters get tired too. The next day, I checked my car for damages. God thing there was none. I later learned that they went to the casino, had dinner in Jollibee, tripped at the town church and at some Chinese temple. Hey, pay for gas at least. I already paid for gas from Manila to LU and vice versa.

They apologized for being "rowdy" the night before and acted like they didn't remember what they were doing. Dudes, I'd understand your behavior if you were like 18-25 years old. But at 44 and 32 years of age? C'mon.

arnis sub cult

Saw this while walking the www.

Useless piece of info: I took up arnis during PE class during college. Just thought you'd like to know.

week 2 of being copy head...

I just realized the "kids" I "inherited"... o ito ta-tagalugin ko na --- sumusulat sila ng copy na walang [pardon my old advertising term] LIBOG!

Must. Fix. This. 

disney + vampire + comics sub cult...

Saw this while walking the www. Our favorite nose-gets-longer-when-lying-nonhuman-puppet suddenly becomes a lot more "kewler."

second hand car salesmen sub cult

[somehow I accidentally deleted my shit... so here it is again in its unoriginal, as I can remember it form...]

When people sell second hand cars, they usually advertise it with these:

--- 67, 000 kms
--- fresh in and out
--- lady driven
--- casa maintained
--- etc

IMHO, boring. If you really want to sell your car, you gotta go with these lines...

  • Never used for fornication, front seat and back
  • Never decorated with stupid, furry, stuffed animals
  • Never decorated with stupid stickers like that yellow ribbon sticker in support of f'n Pnoy
  • Never used in robbery [not even cradle robbing]
  • No one has ever died here [except probably some flies]
  • Never used to run down a person [but it may have crossed the owner's mind]
  • Used as a "hotbox" so the good vibes will still linger
  • Never parked in front of sleazy places like strip joints [okay, maybe a couple of times]
  • Never used to pick up Quezon Avenue chicks
  • Its music player never played Kpop, Lady Gaga songs or any other stupid pop songs
  • Never used to hang out in gas station convenient stores
  • Never equipped with big ugly spoilers, wheels and any other cheesy car accessory
  • Was never involved in the stupid sport called drag racing

  • Goes on AUTOPILOT mode whenever the driver goes home drunk

unsubcultured vocabulary lesson for the day

Today, let's examine/study/dissect a word with no real/official/ right spelling... whose origins are unknown...  whose language it belongs to also unknown [but is used only by Pinoys, most specially of the female origin in Tweets or Facebook status messages]. Best of all, it's a word with varied meanings.

The word in the spotlight is...

[or nuneenoo, nuninoo, nuninu, nooneenoo but never noohneehnooh].

So what are the meanings/applications of this word in everyday life? Here are a few examples...

"Why is my dealer taking soooo long?... NUNINOO-NI-NUNINOO..."

[as tweeted by my friend Windi who is in London] "Nuninu. My vpn does not work. And I tore my contact lens in half and can't get one half out. And I'm awake at 4am."

"NOONEENOO... I still have 10,516 papers to shred, 10466 documents to xerox, 1023 documents to scan and 326 docus to fax."

"NUNEENOO, I saw my loser, piss-ass, mother f'n husband with another girl again."

"I just saw my 76 year old grampa holding hands with a 16 year old girl... NUNEENOO..."

There are a million ways to "NUNINOO." Like the f word, it enhances your sentences too. So use it.
