Track List:

1. Los Angeles World Wide ehh i think it’s not just a remix, but a remake… the full song has changed anyway. the song is remixed by Junior Sunchez, one of the producer of this record and a very good colleague of Good Charlotte. anyway, this song is good as the number one track. i love how Joel Madden sound in the intro.

2. Anxiety this isn’t actaully a remix or a remake, though it sounds much like Broken Hearts Parade, it’s actually a B-Side of Good Morning Revival, but i don’t know why they didn’t release it sooner. nothing special in the song coz’ it sounds like what Good Charlotte is now.

3. Broken Hearts Parade this song features Tabi Bonney and Philieano as guest artists and Marshall Arts as remixer of the song. i think this is one of my favorite in this record. it’s like a ska… or ska-punk, with hip-hop in the middle part. it’s good to play this song when you’re having your vacation… really cool sound!!! i even put this on my haptic phone now coz’ it’s nice to listen to it. two thumbs up to this song…

4. Fight Song and this one features one of my favorite hip-hop rapper in town… The Game!. there’s also Jay-E for the remixing of this song. i think this is an unreleased song, i heard the “ohhh!.. that exits!” sound before. i have a Good Charlotte track called Money Makes Ya’ Kill A Man, i heard that part there, and also to Hilary Duff’s Material Girl version. ehh this track is good for a racing game, like Need For Speed. and Joel Madden is so harcore to this song, this is the second time i heard his voice like that, the other one is from The Young and the Hopeless…Two Thumbs Up Again…xD

5. Keep Your Hands Off My Girl LoL this is very hippie, featuring Bubba Sparxxx and Jung Tru as guests and the Dead Executives itself as the remixer…cool!!! it sounded like Money in the Bank… yow! =)

6. I Just Wanna Live i heard something from the I Just Wanna Live Full Phatt Remix…the girl one… ehh forget it.. anyway this song is remixed by Teddy Reilly. uhmm i’m not used to this song… just a cool one. but annoying remix.

7. The Anthem this is remixed by Million Mano… a very good remix though. featuring Hollywood Holt…

8. All Black i don’t know why Good Charlotte remixed this song, while this isn’t there single but just a part of Good Morning Revival. uhmm nothing else to say coz’ this sng really don’t catch my taste vut as long as it’s a Good Charlotte record, i’ll make it grow on me. btw the song features Mat Dvine as guest and The White Tie Affair as remixer.

9. Little Things this song isn’t as good as i expected, but i’ll make it grow on me because Patrick Stump remixed this song… cool… pop punk unite!!!

10. Dance Floor Anthem the song is a cover of another pop punk/dance punk band which is now my favorite, Metro Station. i’m so glad about this cover. this is so cool…

11. Predictable featuring Stress the Whiteboy remixer and Rahzii Hi-Power as guest. i love the remix but don’t have time to listen to it over and over again.

12. Girls and Boys a nice remix by Ed Banger Allstars… i’m listening to it these days…

13. The Young and the Hopeless this is a cool remix by Mr. Joseph Hahn of Linkin Park. the mood is quite sad but the sound does like a Fort Minor song.

14. Hold On this is being remixed by the band The Academy Is… and it’s quite cool that pop punk bands are uniting through this record… cool! xD you can hear their vocalist in the chorus part…

15. Where Would Be Now this is such a quite good remix by Troublemaker. he made the song sound like a lullaby. very well done xD

My Comment: this is a nice record by Good Charlotte and the rest of their friends. it’s also nice to hear that they’re back to the studio again for a fifh album which is getting back to the pop punk roots…

My Rating: 9/10

How Are Things?

I wrote this post to atleast update my blog coz’ i’m really really busy for something. First off, I finally found out how to install a lot of games for the phone, and it’s really easy as the others do not think. I used a program called tkfileexplorer.exe to browse the contents of the phone memory and then drag the .jar and .jad file in their respective folders. And samsung phones requires .jad file, unlike in moto, so i use jadmaker to generate a .jad file for every .jar games.

Next, foundation day. my midterm in englo5 is to present a choral verse speaking entitled “tiny feet”… we practiced and practiced as if we’re really serious about this thing and made a cute costumes with headbands. And on the performance day, unfortunately we forgot the lines LOL. But it’s still fun, and the crowd had fun, and I even think we did the right job coz’ we’re the last group to perform, the last one should give some laughter… but, my God, I’m still happy, my girl classmates won!!! at least it came from our section.

Anyway, there’s no classes on monday because of bonifacio day, and instead I’ll go play and update everything in my blog and profiles.

BTW, Good Charlotte’s Greatest Remixes is already out.

Moon Chaewon and Yoona were selected as the rising stars of the small screen.

Moon Chaewon, who is currently starring in the SBS drama, “Court painter of wind,” as JungHyang collected 47.9% (5859) of the votes for the poll on the portal site Daum, “Who will be the big star of the small screen?” beating
SoNyuhShiDae’s Yoona, starring in KBS1’s “You are My Destiny,” who collected 43.4% (5312) of the votes.

Moon Chaewon drew the viewer’s attention with a lesbian scene with Moon Keunyoung who played the role of, Shin Yoonbok, a cross-dressing woman.
Moon Chaewon also had an increase in her popularity due to her distinctly oriental yet elegant look which fit well with the role of JungHyang who is a dancer girl who maintains a haughty character.

Following behind was Yoona 43.4% (5312), Shin DaEun came in third with with 6.85% *838). In fourth with 1.82% (222) was Han DaMin.

Although Moon Chaewon is a new actress and this is her first attempt at a traditional drama, Netizens believe that she has a lot of potential in the future because she was able to create as much interest as main actors Moon KeunYoung and Park ShinYang.

Moon Chaewon stated that, “I know that as a beginner I am lacking a lot and have a lot to learn, but I think that people like me because the character of JungHyang is so alluring. I will continue to work hard to become an actress who can impress the viewers, so please keep on supporting me.”

Following that statement she said, “When I watch how I came out on screen, how the viewers would be seeing me, that is the time that I am critical on myself. I kept on working so I could hear people say that my acting got better from the first half to the second half,” and showed her drive as somone up and coming.

On the other hand, in “Court painter of wind,” as the mystery surrounding the “SaDoSaeJa” murder involving Kim HongDo (Park ShinYang), Shin YoonBok (Moon KeunYoung), and JungJo (Bae Soobin), is slowly being unveiled, and a thrilling plot is expected.

VANS | Whip

A year ago, I bought my very first Vans shoes. The Vans Whip. It’s not the ordinary skate or BMX shoe that you guys knew. This one is a signature footwear by Australian BMX Pro Rider, Ryan Guettler. I picked this shoe up not because it’s signatured or something like that, but my sister is actually the one who grabbed it for me simply because she said it’s cool enough, better than the other.

Outer appearance might be a bit owner choosy. This one features a black and white zombie printed in both of the canvas of the shoe. Most materials aside from the canvas are black suede, while an extremely little lining of black leather in each shoe.

Also, the tongue of this shoe is extremely padded making it very thick but comfortable specially when you’re wearing it and you’re riding your BMX. In front of it includes the Vans logo together with Ryan Guettler logo while behind it shows the printed phrase “Endorsed by Ryan Guettler” plus the play cards symbols.

The insides of this shoe is definitely one of the key feature of it. It is as comfortable as how you’re lying in your bed along with your pillows. Both sides are thick enough and you would expect great comfort.

The last thing is the lower part of the shoe. Just like every Vans shoes out there, this one also inherited the cone-shaped-like soles. Aside from how the thickness of the soles are total greatness, it is also equipped with a technology known as the ImpactSorb which eliminates heel bruises and offers amazing comfort everytime you skate or ride your bike.

The looks of this shoe is good enough to distinguish it away from other typical shoes, enough to differentiate it away from the Old School.

Great choice for Ryan Guettler, good match for his Colony Pro BMX model!

Before I conclude this article-slash-review, here’s a Youtube video I made featuring my Hands-On for this shoe. Hope you guys enjoy it. You can also watch it directly in Youtube by clicking here.

Overall, this shoe is a must-have. Everything in this shoe is thick enough to have an extremely good comfort, thus making it last for more years. I do not regret buying it and buy the other ones. I love the whole look of it. Especially since it lasted a year already. I wish it will last in the upcoming years.
