Cats vs. Dogs

I've always thought I was a cat person. Lately, though, spending days (and nights) sitting in the office, I thought maybe a dog would be nice to have around to jog and take walks with. I still can't decide. The best thing to do now would be to refrain from having pets. They're a bitch to clean up after (pun intended).

See a side-by-side comparison of the two beloved pets after the jump!

Club Manila East

The oppressive heat has finally driven us out of the house - but only for a day - and into the water!

The Batman TV Series Season 4

I just love The Batman TV Series. Got a boxed set of Series IV a few days back. I've been watching some episodes the past few nights and I'm now down to the last CD. The animated series is just as good as Batman: Arkham Asylum, the video game - or is it the other way around? After all, the video game is based on the series.

Gotham City and its inhabitants are so surreal. Batman deals with criminals that have turned insane, people just like you and me, but with unique conditions which have made them extremely perverted. Some become cured in the end (in the case of The Ventriloquist). When Carlo played Arkham Asylum, he showed me the patient bios of the patients locked up in the Arkham Asylum. The personalities are so intriguing. In the cartoon series, the bios were fleshed out. My favorite female villains have always been: Catwoman, Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn.
