Newsletter: Acer Philippines Connects with G-Shock, Launches #TimeForUs Campaign

06/28/2017 01:03:38 AM

Author's note: For the past few years, we have seen the rampant and evident signs of generation gap, and there are lots of names and brands from various sectors of society that attempted to create a bridge to remedy this sort of problem that looms between millennials and their older counterparts, as well as to connect each and everyone regardless of age differences.

That said, one computer brand and a popular name in the watch-making business teamed up to join a variety which has the same advocacy. In fact, this campaign was launched a week ago where certain icons from past and present were in attendance to witness the becoming of Acer and G-Shock's #TimeForUs. See more of the project in this press release.

I know  I shouldn't make a comment about this match since I have yet to see the entire thing called Money in the Bank. As far as my commonly-known observers are concerned (from Smark Henry to the Sporting Guy), this MITB has been so far the worse gig for the SmackDown Live brand.

What? Another replica of the Women's MITB Ladder Match? And that will take place just 10 days from Sunday the 18th? But why?

The Rundown Slam: NXT TakeOver Chicago

06/08/2017 06:50:06 PM

It was a pleasant surprise to see an  NXT TakeOver staged outside of their usual Florida stages (unless part of the UK Tour) just almost two months since WrestleMania weekend. Refreshing, in fact, considering it happened before the SmackDown-exclusive pay per view called Backlash.

The past week saw Brock Lesnar and Samoa Joe has been engaged in a monstrous brawl that has sent almost everyone to pacify the situation.

Hmmm, interesting eh?

PlayBack: The Ransom Collective – Traces (Album)

06/08/2017 10:13:32 AM

This band has always been living to their promises with the sound of their kind of folk and pop. The six-piece crew called The Ransom Collective has been the solid (if not one of) example of the indie, and they had done it literally and figuratively, from being just a bunch of merry-making kids to being one of the underrated bands in the overall outlook of the country's music scene.

Tough Times

06/08/2017 05:47:29 PM

The last week of May (and also, the first week of June) turned out to be a series of very rough times for the people around the world. We have seen people acting like killer crabs by attempting to terrorize the surroundings from a concert to an ordinary day at the city. No one was spared from these man-made catastrophes that left a lot, especially at the crime sites, in traumatic state of mind.

How Do You Fix Roman Reigns?

06/08/17 12:55:56 PM

How do you fix Roman Reigns? How to fix the Big Dog?

Honestly, I don't know. And probably, we will all end up with nothing regardless of reading the entirety of this post or not. After all: it was the guy from the top who decides what's best for business his wet dreams, and certainly not us.

Wait a second: is the movement really forced, or are we just that unappreciative of the product? But anyway...

This guy, despite working very solid on his matches with other wrestlers in the WWE, has been a 'lackluster' in the eyes of the general wrestling fan community. And frankly, the way he has been booked since the implosion of his old faction (The SHIELD) showed how Vince's preference of a 'heir apparent' at present.

For the First Time in Forever...

06/08/2017 05:09:28 PM

At first, maybe we would thought that stories like this would happen only in those imaginary-made stories in real life; as if we romanticized such event as an equivalent of forever, or a living testament of the saying “true love waits.”

The Scene Around: Revolver Pop-up Show #2

05/24/2017 07:08:22 AM

It's funny how Cris Ramos and Chuckie Balbuena uses a lot of things like their wrestling fandom to make connections in making music gigs like this. Well, we used to talk a lot of that stuff.

The Scene Around: Get Music Indie-Go

06/05/2017 06:45:36 AM

It was a blockbuster Saturday evening wherein events are like “here, there, and everywhere”; making the nightlife and music scene alive and vibrant after a while (Who says our local music died in the first place?!). 

And amidst the controversial surrounding the word usage and ticket prices during their preparation phase, MCA Music was still able to stage the event called Get Music Indie-Go at the Mall of Asia arena. Yes, despite the delay of time schedule, lack of needed hype, and watching attendance spanning around hundreds of people.

Undeniably one of the best night out spots in the nation's capitol, 19 East isn't been placed there for nothing.
