I am musically inclined! I will be a rockstar!

Your Dominant Intelligence is Musical Intelligence



Every part of your life has a beat, and you're often tapping your fingers or toes.
You enjoy sounds of all types, but you also find sound can distract you at the wrong time.
You are probably a gifted musician of some sort - even if you haven't realized it.
Also a music lover, you tend to appreciate artists of all kinds.

You would make a great musician, disc jockey, singer, or composer.

I know that my blog is full of LOTR crap but I just couldn't resist...




You Know You're Addicted to LotR When...


You start quoting from the movie as part of regular conversation.

You like to tell your mom that you are hungry by quoting: "Merry, I'm hungry."

She used to just laugh, but now she says, "What would you like to eat, Pippin?"

You continually ask your parents for second breakfast.

All the staff at your local cinema knows you by your first name and even before you open your mouth to speak, they say "Ticket for 'Fellowship of The Ring?'"

You hate Burger King food, butyou ate nothing else for a month to get the toys.

You've crammed up your computer's memory by downloading every single screensaver from www.LordoftheRings.net

You wander around the house in a knee length nightie, pyjama trousers and an unfastened dressing gown (to give you a train). You are trying to be an elf, and actually manage to forget that the nightie is blue with dolphins, the trousers have teddies on and the dressing gown is tartan.

Your Lord of the Rings shirt has not yet met the washing machine.

You don't have enough money to buy groceries for the next week before payday, yet you charge £50 on your credit card to get a three year charter membership in the official LOTR fan club. Who needs food anyway?

You refer to parts of your town as parts of Middle-Earth.

You wear hobbitish clothing as part of your normal wardrobe.

You sometimes let your hair go curly after a wash, and then run around the house in bare feet yelling "I'm a hobbit!"

You hate it when Elves are only thought of as 'Santa's little helpers' and have tried to explain the difference between Santa-elves and Syrian Elves to your 5-year old cousins.

You speak in Quenya just to annoy your friends.

You refer to regular elephants as oliphaunts.

While buttering a piece of bread, you suddenly think of Bilbo (remember when he was talking to Gandalf about feeling tired) saying that he felt 'like butter spread over too much bread.'

You renamed your car the Wraith-mobile.

You have a replica of The One Ring.

You are beginning to resemble a panda due to the fact that you've stayed up until 2 am reading and re-reading the great books.

You actually managed to read the Silmarillion without being tempted to give up on this whole middle earth malarkey.

You now have a lifetime fear of black horses!

You haven't removed the soundtrack from your CD player since you bought it.

You have sssudenly developed a hisssing lisssp every time you sssay the letter ssss.

You have looked both on the net and in the phone book to see if archery and sword fighting lessions are offered in your area.

You have begun calling your husband / wife / girlfriend/ boyfriend / animal or kid my precioussss.

You happily traveled over an hour to the next town to see "it" because that theater has a better sound system than the one 5 minutes down the road.

You have called every theatrical or specialty makeup company in town looking for pointy ear or hairy feet prosthetics.

You've worn your plastic "one ring" that came on your Legolas bookmark so much the gold is completely worn off.

You've begun drafting a letter to the Webster's dictionary people requesting that they include "Ringers" in their next edition.

At Christmas time relatives find you chatting with the tree and sharing eggnog draughts

Single ads with the description," short plump and big hairy feet" seem much more appealing.

You know The LoTR history better then your family history.

You have a mouse named Frodo, a bird named Gollum, and a dog named Gandalf. And that cat that keeps coming around to be petted is Legolas.

You know Elvish better then English.

Whenever something goes wrong, it's Sauron's fault.

When you sing in the shower, it's always about Gil-Galad or hobbit walking songs...

You know everything about Middle Earth geography, but you can't get someone from your house to the ice cream parlor. Now the nearest movie theater, that is a different story.

You think the names of the 7 dwarves from Snow White are: Gimli, Gloin, Thorin, Gili, Nili, Ori, and Bambour.

You have developed your own special Tolkien handwriting. "A firm, flowing script..."

Words like "Yrch" make sense to you.

You've become strangely obsessed with mushrooms.

Whenever you close a door, you say "They have a cave troll!"

When you come to a dead end you're still convinced that the road goes ever on and on.

There's a sign on your door saying "Speak Friend and enter!"

Whenever you get a chance, you burst into song. Preferably one that has more than 20 verses.

You change your name by deed poll to a Tolkien character and seriously consider naming your children after LOTR characters.

Every time you see birds in the sky you have the urge to say "Fly you fools!"

When someone knocks on your door you grab them, pull them inside and ask "Are you frightend?... Not nearly frightend enough!"

Your computer's screensaver is a marquee reading, "Ennyn Durin atan Moria: pedo mellon a mino" and the password is actually "mellon".

You cannot see a beer without blurting out "It comes in pints? I'm getting one!"

You just can't keep yourself from saying "nobody tosses a Dwarf" at inappropriate moments.

A shadow and a threat is growing in your mind.

You now referring to your friends as your 'Fellowship' and insist that you have epic adventures.

You stand in the doorway and tell your cat that he 'Can not pass'.

You wash your face in the sink and expect to see things that are, that have been or that will be.

Your wedding band has started to weigh you down with it's evil powers.

Spending $35 at the grocery store seems expensive but its Perfectly fine to spend $70 on the Hardcover LOTR book with Alan Lee Illustrations.

You start keeping a LOTR Journal to write poems and inklings in.

You face every difficult decision with the thought "now what would Gandalf advise me to do?"

You know what Entmoot, Ent draught, or an Ent is for that matter

You've gained 20 pounds because you've started eating a "Second Breakfast"

A walking stick... you never leave home with out it.

You actually get these jokes and pass them on to other friends who are addicted to Lord of the Rings.

Facts & Trivia about the LOTR movies (revised version)
Sunday, January 16, 2005
I just got the chance to see the extended edition of ROTK and here are some of the things I learned thru watching some of the documentaries and listening to the commentaries of the cast:


Legolas(Orlando Bloom) and Aragorn(Viggo Mortenson)


Trivia # 1: According to John-Rhys Davies (Gimli), he suggested the Alan Lee character sketches shown at the end credits of ROTK.

Trivia # 2: According to Billy Boyd (Pippin)& Dominic Monaghan (Merry), they did the commentary on Two Towers "naked" and for the commentary of ROTK they did wearing "farmer's wives clothing" (HUH?!)

Trivia # 3: According to Billy Boyd (Pippin)& Dominic Monaghan (Merry) again, all soldiers you see in Isengard are "trained ants" in helmets, all missing four arms and legs to make them look like orc soldiers

Trivia # 4: In the scene from ROTK where Sam (Sean Astin) kisses his new bride, off-cam, Viggo Mortenson (Aragorn) grabs Billy Boyd and kisses him on the lips...open-mouthed - apparently Viggo likes going around the set head-butting and kissing people(Altogether now...YIIIIIIII!)

Trivia # 5: The very last scene shot for LOTR was the scene where Elijah Wood (Frodo) was back in Bag-gend writing in The Red Book of March (it took Peter Jackson more than 10 takes for that particular scene since he didn't want it to end -after the last take, Jackson then proceeds to bursting out in tears while hugging Elijah Wood, repeatedly saying "Thank You!")

Trivia # 6: According to Dominic Monaghan, Orlando Bloom (Legolas) was "so pure" that his breath even smelled like flowers

Trivia # 7: Some of the Orcs and the Riders of Rohan were women

Trivia # 8: In the scene near Shelob's cave where Frodo sends Sam away, Elijah Wood's dialogue and scenes were shot exactly 1 year after Sean Astin's dialogue and scenes

Trivia # 9: Peter Jackson's 2 kids were extras in all 3 movies of LOTR
(FOTR-hobbit children, TWO TOWERS - Rohan children. ROTK - Gondor children)

Trivia # 10: Peter Jackson was an extra in all 3 of the LOTR movies, unfortunately, his scene in ROTK, where he played a pirate shot by Legolas' arrow had to be deleted


Merry(Dominic Monaghan) and Pippin(Billy Boyd)


Trivia # 11: Billy Boyd's stunt double was a tiny little Chinese girl named Fong

Trivia # 12: During the filming of the "Merry & Pippin" scenes in Fangorn Forest they had to “cut” a lot since there were a lot of bugs around and Peter Jackson couldn’t concentrate on directing since he was afraid of bugs

Trivia # 13: The Black Gate scene was filmed at a New Zealand army test site, the cast and crew had to be careful during the shoot since there were a lot of bombs and land mines lying around

Trivia # 14: Some members of the New Zealand army played extras in The Black Gate scene as Riders of Rohan and Orcs

Trivia # 15: According to Dominic Monaghan, Billy Boyd had already kissed 5 members of "The Fellowship"

Trivia # 16: The "Farewell Scene" wherein Gandalf, Bilbo and Frodo head to the Grey Havens was reshot a second time since Sean Astin wore the wrong clothes in one take and reshot again for the third time since the second shoot was out of focus - the remaining 3 hobbits wanted to literally kill Sean Astin since the scene was a very difficult and emotional one

Trivia # 17: After John-Rhys Davies very last shot as "Gimli", he burned his face prosthetic and declared that he will never play a dwarf again...ever. He was also seen crying during his farewell speech to the cast and crew of LOTR

Trivia # 18: According to Billy Boyd during the movie commentary, the song that Aragorn sang during his coronation in Minas Tirith, was an elvish version of Christina Aguilera's "Dirrty" (Hahahahaha!)

Trivia # 19: Orlando Bloom broke the bow that he used as "Legolas" at the end of his very last shot for LOTR

Trivia # 20: As parting gifts to the cast, Peter Jackson gave the "Ring of Power" to Andy Serkis (Gollum), to Orlando Bloom he gave "Legolas' bow ", to Sir Ian McKellen (Gandalf) he gave Gandalf's sword, Elijah Wood got to keep “Sting” (Frodo’s sword) and a pair of his “hobbit feet”

* Note to Mitch: I'll lend it to you Feb na. Super haba niya talaga!

Mulawin: LOTR rip-off ?
Wednesday, January 12, 2005
I am one bored chica right now. Signs that I am bored?! I've been doodling tiny pictures of snails, gingerbreadmen, ice cream and leaves (to name a few drawings) on my notebook. And I'm actually welcoming calls about idiotic CH's having their transactions added.
Therefore, I decided to focus on this particular topic full of nonsense.
Sorry in advance...

I'm a big LOTR fanatic and I also am an avid Mulawin viewer. (What?! Its interesting!) And I just noticed a few similarities and some totally cheesy rip-offs that Mulawin got from LOTR...


Mga Sugo: Alwina & Aguiluz


Gay Hobbits: Merry, Sam, Frodo & Pippin


1. Dakila (Eddie Gutierrez) - complete w/ tungkod and the tungkod turns into a bird/weapon... HELLO! GANDALF!!! Ano ba yun?!
2. Mga Diwata (Sheryl Cruz/G Toengi)/their belief of going West after they accomplished their given task/a fountain w/c they look at to see the future... CAN YOU SAY ELVES?
3. Battle between Tiera Fuego Peeps/Mga Perico/Mga Mulawin/Mga Musang/Mga Mulandi(?) (its what they're called in Bubble Gang) VS Mga Ravena - BATTLE FOR EARTH ... Man/Elves/Dead People/A dwarf/Gandalf VS Orcs/Goblins/Nazgul/Wildmen/Trolls- BATTLE FOR MIDDLE EARTH
4. Before reaching the "Puno ng Mulawin" lava comes out of nowhere toward "Alwina & Aguiluz" ... Mt Doom after Gollum accidentally fell in together w/ the RING lava came out at Frodo and Sam (hmmmm...okay this is kinda different since the lava in Mulawin came before the "significant event" whereas the lava IN LOTR came after the "significant event")
5. Ultimate evil: 2 gleaming red eyes floating out of nowhere in the Ravena's Lair (RAVENUM)... 1 giant fiery eyeball floating atop the Tower of Baradur (SAURON) WHY MUST EVIL FLOAT?!
6. Teams that have to carry out significant tasks: (Mga Sugo)Alwina + Aguiluz = lovers... (Ringbearers) Frodo + Sam = Gay Hobbits

I'm pretty sure I missed out on other similarities but this is all I could think of right now.

Till the next post! Farewell readers...

Finding Neverland
Tuesday, January 11, 2005
Haaaaayy...complicated life! I have every single material comfort that i could possibly want but no love life. (Putcha! Asan ka ba prince charming! 25 years na ko naghihintay sa yo. Bakit mo ako tinataguan? Hayop ka! Ayokong magmadre!!!!!)
Mitch has an actual (supposedly great) lovelife but the whole world (AKA: The Boss)seems against it.
Utangs, Money, Work...you name it we all got a problem about it.
Things just get more complicated as we grow older. Its the way things are. Sucky but true.
I just wish we could go back to when we were just kids. Everything was simple.
Too bad we can't be kids forever...
Damn you Peter Pan!!!

I LOVE SWITCHFOOT!
Saturday, January 01, 2005


I know that I'm turning my blog into some Switchfoot shrine but THEY are the best band ever!!! Well, for me anyway. Here are 2 other Switchfoot songs that I'm really into right now...



On Fire
They tell you where you need to go
They tell you when you need to leave. They tell you what you need to know They tell you who you need to be.
But everything inside you knows there's more than what you've heard
There's so much more than empty conversations filled with empty words

And you're on fire when he's near you You're on fire when he speaks
You're on fire burning at these mysteries
Give me one more time around
give me one more chance to see,
Give me everything you are
Give me one more chance to be near you.

When everything inside me
Looks like everything i hate
You are the hope i have for change
You are the only chance I'll take

And I'm on fire when you're near me
I'm on fire when you speak
I'm on fire burning at these mysteries. I'm standing on the edge of me,
I'm standing at the edge of everything I've ever been
And I've been standing at the edge of me, standing at the edge


Dare You To Move
Welcome to the planet
Welcome to existence
Everyone's here
Everyone's here
Everybody's watching you now
Everybody waits for you now
What happens next?
What happens next?

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened before

Welcome to the fallout
Welcome to resistance
The tension is here
The tension is here
Between who you are and who you could be
Between how it is and how it should be

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened
Maybe redemption has stories to tell Maybe forgiveness is right where you fell
Where can you run to escape from yourself?
Where you gonna go?
Where you gonna go?
Salvation is here

I dare you to move
I dare you to move
I dare you to lift yourself up off the floor
I dare you to move
I dare you to move
Like today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened
Today never happened before
