Wing Gundam

Pretty soon I will have a Wing Gundam page in my Gundam section (does that make sense?). Well, to make things clearer...Wing Gundam is the original mobile suit used by Heero Yuy before Yuy eventually piloted Wing Zero. Wing Gundam is Gundam 0-1, and Wing Zero is Gundam 0. Understand?

Probably not. Just watch the TV series to understand what this jibberish is all about.

(12-1-00) UPDATE: I've just uploaded the Wing Gundam section to my homepage. In case you're wondering why I have sections on just 4 Gundam suits so far (Deathscythe Hell, Epyon, Wing Gundam and Wing Zero), it's because I create a new section only when I buy a new Gundam model kit. So you can pretty much assume I currently have 4 types of Gundams collecting dust in my room. HAHA.

Yesterday, one of my brothers and I went to STAPLES Center to watch the Lakers play against their city rivals, the Clippers. As usual, the Lake Show defeated the Clips, 92-83...even though Lamar Odom and Co. had home-court advantage. What I'm thinking can a team have home-court advantage in an arena that has 7 championship banners won by an archrival team that plays at the same stadium? Ah, The mysteries of life... Anyways, this is the 15th consecutive time the Lakers beat the Clippers.

This Sunday, December 3rd, I'm going back to STAPLES Center again with one of my friends to watch the Lakers take on the Dallas Mavericks.

George Dubya

Election 2000 UPDATE: Well, it finally seems like we have a new U.S. president. Florida has just certified George "Nigeria is a very important continent" Bush as the winner in the state...with a lead of about 537 votes over Al "I'm a SORE LOSER, and I'm darn proud of it" Gore.

I know, I know... I voted for Gore. And I would say all of you Bush voters had your comeuppance over me for voting Democrat if I wasn't angry at Gore myself. Dang man, end this entire election dispute already and let the Republican take office!!!

Happy Thanksgiving, everyone! Hope all of you are having a safe, memorable, joyous, wondrous, exciting and fun-filled Turkey Day. Now, if you excuse me...I'm going to go and watch TV before I end up spewing more corny lines with redundant phrases like the one above.

Ask Parman! 24 new questions can be found on Page 2 of Ask Parman!.

Be warned, however...the questions (or at least my answers) get cruder as you scroll deeper into the page. Enter Ask Parman! Page 2 at your own risk.

Updated: I've uploaded my Red Shore script, as well as added the link to AubreyLyn's website. Pretty soon I will update the Ask Parman! section with a few more questions...including some that pertain to the fiasco that is Election 2000.

NOTE: The Red Shore script only covers what would be only 30 minutes to an hour of screen time if the movie was actually made. In other words, it's still basically a rough draft. So if you want to read the ending in terms of film format, it's gonna be a while till you actually see it...since right now I'm not really interested in finishing this script. It was only meant to help me pass my Summer 2000 film class (which I got an A in, thank you).

Today, I've just updated the autographs section. I've added signed pics of Francine Dee, Nikki Cash and AubreyLyn Laserna that I got at last Sunday's Asian Sirens Expo. You might notice that I didn't show AubreyLyn's autograph on her photo's thumbnail in my page. Well, that's because I don't know if my webhost will frown upon the provocative nature of this pic. Hope they don't. Anyways, enjoy!

At the Asian Sirens Expo

On Sunday (Nov. 12), I went to the Asian Sirens Expo at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles. Needless to say, it was dope. I met a lot of beautiful models...among them being Francine Dee (again), Aubrey, Nikki Cash, Natashi Yi, Kristine Enrile, and other gorgeous women. Among the highlights of this event was Francine remembering my name from the last time I saw her (at the Asian Model Expo in Lakewood =)). Although I couldn't buy her 2001 calendar, I did get a third autograph by Francine (which can soon be seen in my autographs section). Also...For me being such a loyal fan, Francine personally gave me a Tootsie Roll candy. Now I don't know whether to eat it or keep it as a memento.

My other favorite models are Aubrey, Natashi Yi and Kyleah Belle. I would have also mentioned Nikki but she didn't seem as easy to talk to (for me, at least) as the ones mentioned above when I met her. But it's all good. In terms of the Asian models that I want to meet overall, I still haven't met Sung Hi Lee...who didn't attend the expo. I guess I'll have to wait till next year then!

Long Beach State.

Since I'm in a journal-writing mood, I just wanted to point out one good thing that high school has that college doesn't have...and that is yearbooks. Actually, in college you do have yearbooks...but I pretty much think not everyone is gonna be in it considering there are 20,000+ students (at least in my school) whose names you have to worry about spelling correctly underneath their mug shots.

So what's my point? My point is if there's a fellow classmate (in my case someone of the opposite sex...i.e. a girl) you grew fond of in one of your classes during a semester, and there was not really a big chance you'd run into her again next semester, I'm sure you would want something to remember her by in the future...such as a pic or an autograph on the inner part of a yearbook cover (geez, not only do I sound geeky, but that was ONE LONG sentence.). However, that's IF you're a sentimental I am--without the idiot label.

Of course...if you got lucky enough to get to know that girl well to be with her, then ignore what I've just said above. As you can see, I don't have a girlfriend...which is why I have so many pics of hot carshow models on my website.

SO WHAT'S THE GIST OF MY BABBLING? Well...the Fall semester is still far from over, so I guess I'll see what happens with me talking to this one cute Vietnamese girl, who I like a lot, in my Geology lab class. I know this is her fourth year in Long Beach, I know she drives a silver Honda Civic (since she was kind enough on two occasions to drive me to my car since I pretty much parked farther from our lab class than she did), I know she's Catholic (and potential relationships tend to last longer if the two people are of the same faith ) and that her major is Liberal Studies. What I don't know is if she already has a boyfriend or not...and since I don't want to screw things up, I'm pretty reluctant to bring it up in conversations we may have in the future.

If she did have a boyfriend, then she would have told me a long time ago...if she didn't want me to try and make a move or anything. But it's all good. On the plus side, she did give me her cell phone number, even though it's for school related purposes (darn it). And she has my phone number, so she can call anytime she feel like (yea, THAT's gonna happen).
Election 2000 UPDATE: I'm obviously a little too late, but I hope NONE of you voted for Ralph Nader! As of this writing/typing, Gore had 260 electoral votes and Bush had 246. Gore would have been in much better shape if Nader didn't run for the presidency, considering his intentions were to steal some of the votes away from Gore. Some of you might have heard this already, but...a vote for Nader was a vote for Bush! GO DEMOCRATS!

On another note, the Lakers aren't doing too much to defend their NBA they lost to the 1999 champs San Antonio Spurs, 91-81, in Texas. This is L.A.'s 2nd loss in a row, with 3 losses so far in the 2000-2001 season.

MEMO to Phil Jackson: San Antonio does NOT deserve an asterisk next to their championship title. The season in which they won may have been shortened dramatically, but the playoffs sure weren't. The Spurs still needed 15 games to win during the post season, which they did.

Election 2000: Just less than 4 hours ago, I drove to my assigned polling place to cast my vote for who should become the next president. So who did I vote for?

Well, let's put it this way...last semester in my U.S. History class, my professor said that college students were most likely to vote for a liberal official during an election. Liberal as in un-conservative (i.e. un-Republican)...and not necessarily a libertarian. So in other words, I voted democratic. If you haven't gotten the hint yet, I voted for Al Gore and Joe Lieberman to be the head honchos in the White House, other democratic officials to run in the California senate (I live in SoCal.., in case your wondering), and yes on such propositions as 35 and 39.

So if you're disgusted with me voting for a democrat instead of ol' George Dubya and Dick Cheney...then get back at me by going to your nearest voting booth and voting for these two or that Nader guy. VOTE NOW!!

Today I created a new section that contains pics from a model expo I went to at Lakewood two months ago. As you can see, all but two of the pics are of Asian beauty Francine Dee...since personally I've been wanting to meet her for quite some time now (and I finally did).

Of course, the only time she's looking at the camera was when I took a picture with her...but oh well (that's still pretty nice compensation ).

Yesterday, the Lakers got their championship rings, and the Utah Jazz defeated them, 97-92, in the game that followed that nice little ceremony at STAPLES Center. I'm not really disappointed that the Lakers lost...considering the fact that Shaq, Kobe and gang were most likely distracted by the new bling bling that they're now wearing.

Plus, Karl Malone and John Stockton must have been really motivated to play after realizing that the team they swept in the playoffs just two years back won a trophy and they didn't. Don't worry Mailman, you'll get your ring once Shaq retires.

UPDATE (August 2006): Hope you're having fun during retirement, Mailman. Still no ring... Oh well.
