Google Paid Me Again

I just opened my google account and found out that I can already get my money. At my payment history, the control number was written. By the way, I chose Western Union not check so I can get my money quickly and safely. So I went to Western Union and got my money. I got $102.90. It's not that big yet but with hard work, I'm sure I can improve some more. Right now, I've got $20 on my google account. Eighty dollars more and I'm on my way back to Western Union. It's all about hard work. And google is a sure thing. They really pay unlike others that lets you post their ads on your site or lets you click on something and then after a while, you won't be hearing anything from them.

David Cook, the New American Idol

I know that the finale was last week, but since I was busy, I wasn't able to post any for a while. Enough about me, let's talk about American Idol. Last week, Archuleta's songs really fit his voice that really made me think that he'll be the next American Idol. Even Simon told him that he won all three rounds. I could agree on that one but I really don't care who wins. Both Davids can definitely sing and both have charisma which is important if you want to sell albums. Here in the Philippines, Cook was already making a hit on the radio even before winning American Idol. After performing "Always Be My Baby", callers have been requesting the song on the radio. And finally, they played a studio version of Cook's performance on Idol. Here's what I'll predict, I think David Cook will definitely make hits. Former American Idol contestant, Chris Daughtry, made hits and he wasn't even the winner of that season. And with hits today coming from bands like Daughtry, Hinder, 3 Doors Down and more, it's a perfect time for Cook to come out and take over.

Latest on Wrestling

It's been a while since I wrote about wrestling. I would like to start off with Bobby Lashley. Where is he? Yes, he was released from the WWE and only time will tell that we'll see him again in the ring, a TNA ring. Booker T and Kurt Angle have been convincing Lashley to join TNA. We'll just have to wait and see.

Remember the Ultimate Warrior? He's coming back to wrestling soon. But that's not the biggest news about Warrior, he has a youtube account. Try and search for UltimateWarriorTV. You'll see some videos uploaded by the Warrior himself.

John Cena speaks out against the Rock regarding on what the Rock told the fans before that wrestling is his life and that's what he wanted to do. Then, after a few movies, turned his back on wrestling to be a full time actor. Cena thought that The Rock just used wrestling as a stepping stone. And that's not it, in the New Men's Journal Magazine, Dwayne Johnson is featured on the cover with a caption on the cover of the magazine, "The Rock Is Dead. Dwayne Johnson and the art of reinventing yourself."

And lastly, Kennedy is now being pushed as a babyface with his feud with Regal. We just don't know if they'll continue this angle. In my opinion, I think Kennedy needs to get a big push. Fans love him even as a heel, what more now that he's a babyface. He's got charisma, and sense of humor. He reminds me a lot of the Rock. If he can maintain what he's doing with more good promos, he can be the next icon of WWE.

David vs David on American Idol

My predictions were correct. It's gonna be David Archuleta vs David Cook. It'll be a good match. Both have huge fans. And I think it could go either way. Both can sing and girls will play a big role on the finals. I think singing won't matter that much on the finals. It's about who got more charisma. I really can't predict on who will win the American Idol but I'll be routing for David Cook because I think he got it all. The advantage that Cook has will be his performance on stage and how he delivers the song. Other than that, it's a tight match. Fans will definitely play a big role on the finals. But there's one thing for sure, the next American Idol's name will be David.

Back To American Idol

I was away and busy for the past few weeks. And now that I'm back, I would like to make up for last episodes of Idol. I have been predicting that three male singers will be on the top three. Not because I like them, but because it's what America are trying to tell us. I felt that it's becoming a popularity contest rather than a singing contest. Thankfully, I'm wrong. Jason Castro didn't make it to the final three. But before I continue on Jason, I would like to get back on Brooke. I was glad that she was out. I thought that Syesha was going because fans kept on voting Brooke even though she kept on screwing things up. Technically, in my opinion, Syesha sings well and clean. The problem is charisma. Popular guys like Brooke and Jason need to screw up a lot of times and big time before people finally decided that they shouldn't be in the top three. And I'm glad with the finally three. I think David A, David C and Syesha deserve it.

Here are my thoughts on the final three. Syesha, I think is the best technical singer among the three. The problem is, she doesn't have enough fans to support her. And I think there are more female fans out there watching that like the two Davids. David Archuleta, sings well at a young age. Great and unique voice and definitely has tons of fans. On performance wise, he needs to improve more on how to work the stage as a performer. David Cook, a true rocker I think has the better package among the three. He can definitely work the stage, has lots of fans, great voice of a true rocker. But sometimes, there are some flat and sharp notes but it can still be recovered by the tone of his voice. These are just some of my comments based on what I see on the show and what I have observed on the votes. Let's see if they prove me wrong once again.

Busy Schedule..

I have been very busy for the past few weeks. And a lot of things happened within those weeks. As I have mentioned on my past posts, I'm a guitarist of a band. And right now, I joined another band. From a jazz band to a rock band. I have been playing with two very different bands right now. It's been a wild ride and big adjustments must be made to play different music. And that's the reason why I wasn't able to write for the past few weeks. Aside from that, my internet connection was disconnected for some reason. It's fixed for now but I still have to pay for the balance before the 16th of May. Yes, I have been busy working to pay for my bills but what makes it worse are the prices of consumer products, from gasoline, rice, canned goods, meat, vegetables, electricity and the list goes on and on. Name it and 95 percent, it increased too.

It's really different when you're a kid. You don't even have to worry about any of these things. You maybe busy, but busy from playing. Things are different now. If you want something, you have to work really hard for it. Kids today don't even have a chance to become a full time kid. Some are already working at an early age because of the crisis we're having in this country. And last tuesday, a text message came and just informed me, that a good friend of mine passed away. With all the busy schedule, stress, and crisis, that news did the biggest hit on me. We may have a busy schedule, lots of stress and problems, but we must always remember to live our life to the fullest and there's nothing more important than to have time show your feelings for the people you love.
