Here, There and almost Everywhere

To get myself blogging again after a toxic week, I partake three pieces of Christmas cookies and start off with a few mentions.

First of all, my 2-month stint at HWM Philippines magazine has finally borne fruit with the October, November and (the upcoming) December issues unloading a series of articles on the Blu-ray technology.

It's interesting reading and one of the things I discovered in wars between video formats like these is that the porn industry has a decisive role. Likewise, Blu-ray is so high-definition, you can see the pores on a close-up of the face of the actors and actresses. Imagine what it would do to a regular porn flick...

In other news, a picture of my room showed up in the recent Metro Homes and Entertaining magazine. However, it's almost unrecognizable as the photographers went rearrange-crazy for their photo-shoot of the family home last September. What really got my blood up was the fact that they wrecked the window blind in my room and didn't repair it afterwards. Grrr.

But what's cool is that a lot of my books are on display on the picture. Some noticeable standouts in the pic includes The Essential Harlan Ellison, River of Gods by Ian McDonald, Acacia by David Anthony Durham and trash sex magic by Jennifer Stevenson. (There's also a framed pic of [identity-protected] and meself in that shot-- look for it!)

I can't zoom in on that shot, so I can't really say for sure, but did you just do a Hitchcock's Lifeboat thing with that question? Is the framed picture the one on the left-hand side of the Metro Homes and Entertaining cover?
