NoisySoup: Hot and Delicious.

16 02 2007

Yesterday, something really great happened. It’s not really unexpected but I find it hard to believe. It’s surreal, but I know it’s true: My girlfriend joined the blogwagon.

What makes it surreal? Well, let’s just say that blogging is not her cup of java. It’s not in her radar. Blogging, according to her is simply not for her. In fact, this blog of mine was put under her tight scrutiny.   I almost stop this thing just to give her peace of mind.  Luckily, I was able to convince her that there’s nothing wrong with blogging.

Thank you sweetie and welcome to the blogosphere.

Of your suicidal tendencies.

Last night, my sister asked me for some info regarding the death of a Korean actress. Apparently, somebody told her that Jeong-eun Kim (aka Vivian here in the Philippines), the star of Korean TV Drama Lovers in Paris was allegedly found dead in her boyfriend’s house. Doubtful and unbelieving because she’s a huge fan, she sent me text messages for confirmation.

Since I’m working for a Korean company, she is somehow expecting that I know the entire buzz that has been happening in Korea. Gawd. It’s really my fault, recalling how I sometimes brag tell that some of those Korean stars are our clients.

Anonymity: The New Hot Thing.

26 01 2007

According to this article, the hottest thing in the future is anonymity.

To be un-famous.

To be Googled — and to not be there. No link. No Wiki. No tube, space or face. No nothing.

It’s too late for most adults — anyone with a job, a driver’s license or a signature on a public document. But in a world where anyone can be known, what could be cooler than not being known? In a celebrity-saturated culture, what could be hotter than not being a celebrity?
