  I voted for Earth!

Sunday, March 29, 2009

Yesterday after work, I ate breakfast with one of my friends. I saw this ad from the Philippine Daily Inquirer and brought it home. Yes, it says "Meralco has the energy to support..."

Please visit EarthHour.ORG for more details.

I posted the ad page on my front lawn for passersby to see. I sms'd everyone to remind them and invite them to join the cause. And of course when the time came, I switched off all the lights at my home last night from 8:30-9:30pm.

I was expecting the street lights to dim out, but it didn't. But surprisingly, a colleague sms'd me and told me the lights were turned off at work! Wow, for a 24 hour establishment, they indeed need a time off.

Unfortunately, alot of my neighbors did not participate. Either none of them watch the news nor read the papers. Or they just simply are too lazy, too naive, too selfish and too insensitive to believe in such a world wide campaign. Or they just didn't care.

Sad. tsk tsk.. i pity them.

For those who did turn their lights off tho, you can grab the logo above and place it on your blog or site. Click here to get the code.

For those who are thinking of excuses now why you did not turn off your lights, please watch this video for you to know what is going on.

Notice something at 2:00?

Here's another version of that video edited to have 17 seconds of Manila clips.

And, of course, a video from the local news:

  Postcards from Black Tape for a Blue Girl

Sunday, March 22, 2009

Yes, BTFABG (Black Tape for a Blue Girl)'s Sam Rosenthal is giving out postcards to their fans. I read this on the BTFABG Bulletin at MySpace. And I quote..

We just printed 5000 10 Neurotic postcards talking about the new album and pointing people to visit our blog to learn more. I would love to have you pass some out to your friends / leave at the local coffee shop / put on your fridge / etc.."

So I sent a message to Sam and hopefully I get chosen to hand out 20-40 postcards to friends and local indie clubs.

For those who wanna stalk them, here are their sites:

Official Websites:
Band Website: blacktapeforabluegirl.com

Now, I leave you with two of my fave songs from Black Tape for a Blue Girl:
