Saab Magalona leaves B-Side show due to violent crowd

Saab Magalona and her bandmates had to leave their recent show in Makati due to the crowd's unruly and violent behavior. Magalona was supposed to perform with her band, The Cheats, at B-Side last Sept. 29, Saturday.

Madame Tussauds in Tokyo to give free ‘Kim Jong-un style’ haircuts on July 16

Madame Tussauds wax museum in Tokyo is launching a one-day barbershop called "Peace Barber" on July 16, dedicated to giving free haircuts similar to the hairstyle of North Korean leader Kim Jong-un. The free haircut event will not be held in the museum, however; instead Madame Tussauds will have a dedicated pop-up shop in Shibuya, as reported by Niconico News/Hachima Kiko via SoraNews24 today, July 15. Moreover, event organizers refer to the haircuts as "performances," so it is reportedly likely that the cutting of one's hair will be held for the public to see. Those who are brave enough to try the North Korean leader's hair cut may later on get a photo alongside the image of A...Keep on reading: Madame Tussauds in Tokyo to give free ‘Kim Jong-un style’ haircuts on July 16.....»»

Miscues push Warriors to brink of elimination

By Shaun Powell, NBA.com HOUSTON — The hefty equipment bag sitting next to the visitor’s locker room entrance after Game 5 of the Western Conference finals never had a chance. Whack! went Draymond Green’s fist against it as he walked by. Well, at least the Warriors hit something as the night grew late. Once again, the defending champions, the team with four All-Stars, the franchise with a pair of former MVPs still in their prime and two of the most efficient machines of this generation went flatter than Texas when it counted. Missed shots, failed stops and poor decisions all piled on their heads. That fourth quarter was mostly a 12-minute mess. It doomed them at the finish, for the second straight game, and now has them on the brink — really! — in the conference finals. The Warriors awaken today with a pair of potential saving graces: Game 6 is in Oakland and Chris Paul is gimpy, and might be done for good. That could be enough to push this series to seven games. Yet nothing is for certain anymore in the Warriors’ world, if only because of the weird and uncharacteristic — for them — developments in the clutch. Simply put, their lack of composure and smarts is the reason they’re in a bind. Imagine: The Rockets don’t score 100 and James Harden missed all 11 of his three-pointers and the Warriors still lose. It was a strange, empty night for the Warriors where nothing made sense for them. Yes, Paul went nuts in the fourth quarter and Houston’s defensive rotations and traps are catching the Warriors — and especially Kevin Durant — by surprise, and yet the Warriors are also doing a good job of stabbing themselves. Thursday's (Friday, PHL time) 98-94 loss was another blown opportunity, another one that got away, and for the first time since The Finals two summers ago the Warriors are staring at elimination. The face of the Warriors in these back-to-back losses belongs to Durant, and it wears the look of a man confused and dumbfounded. He is 1-for-9 shooting over the last two fourth quarters, reduced to a supporting actor, a backup singer, instead of a beast. He’s not the total reason for this, but a strong symptom nonetheless. Could they fall short of The Finals, a place where they were all but destined to go? It’s a reality, obviously, and their margin for error is toothpick-like. But that’s not what coach Steve Kerr’s gut tells him. “I feel great about where we are right now,” he said. “That may sound crazy, but I feel it. I know exactly what I’m seeing out there … we got everything we needed. Just too many turnovers, too many reaches. If we settle down a little bit we’re going to be in really good shape.” Maybe some of Kerr’s mood has something to do with Paul grabbing a hamstring in the final moments, perhaps stripping the Rockets of their best player in this series. Maybe it’s just hard to fathom the Warriors losing four times in a best-of-seven. All that talent and past success can make a man stubborn, almost refusing to ponder the possibility of defeat. Fine, but Kerr and crew must find a way to clean up the bad choices they’ve made with the game on the line, before it becomes habit-forming. Eighteen turnovers isn’t a recipe for winning. “We can learn from it,” said Durant, “and we’ve got another opportunity at home. We’ll be ready to play.” Trailing by a point with 49 seconds left, here’s what the Warriors coughed up: * Quinn Cook missed a three-pointer. The big surprise is that the ball found Cook and he actually took a shot at that stage of the game. * Curry missed a driving layup, and rather than grab the rebound, Green slapped it out toward the perimeter, hoping a teammate would grab it. Trevor Ariza scooped the lose ball instead. * Then: Down three points and seconds left, the play was designed for Curry to spring loose for a three, but Green fumbled a pass that hit him in both hands. Game over. “We were supposed to score,” said Green. “I lost the ball. Nothing more, nothing less.” Before these self-inflicted misadventures, the Warriors were repeatedly punished by Paul, who recovered from an 0-for-7 first half with 18 points in the second half — complete with a payback shimmy aimed at Curry — before pulling up lame with 22 seconds left. Also, Eric Gordon dropped 24 points and went to the line 10 times, thanks to reach-in fouls by beaten Warriors defenders. “What we can’t live with is reaching and jumping on Eric Gordon’s pump fakes,” said Kerr. “We reached on James and he shot nine free throws. We’ve got to be a little more disciplined.” Overall, the Warriors withstood a manic Toyota Center and were locked in a tight finish against a 65-win team, but never led after the eight-minute mark and weren't nearly sharp enough to capture the lead. They were without Andre Iguodala again, but he’s a defensive specialist and for much of the night defense wasn’t a big issue for the Warriors; the Rockets shot 37 percent and Harden didn’t hurt them. Their problems were mistakes and missed shots. Anyway, Golden State has four All-Stars to Houston’s two, and now with Paul’s status questionable, maybe just one. That means, although the Warriors trail 3-2, they’re in a reasonably good position to keep the series alive. They’re not worried. There’s another emotion running through their bodies. “I think they’re angry,” said Kerr. “As they should be. They’re competitors.” This is new territory in the Durant Era. Remember, the Warriors lost only once last season and until the West Finals didn’t perspire much. As expected, the Rockets are indeed the biggest threat they’ve faced. It’s the series that’s meeting the high expectations for drama and suspense and a chance to see the mighty Warriors ousted. Does Paul’s injury linger and ultimately bail out the Warriors? Can Durant rediscover his touch in the clutch? Will the Warriors wise up or once again wig out? There’s nothing at stake, really, except a dynasty that a loaded team was created to become. Curry plans to remain cool and confident, and the Warriors really don’t have any other choice but to adopt that mentality. “We’ve played the last two games good enough to win but just haven’t gotten the job done," he said. "The way we played tonight, if we can repeat that, take care of turnovers, just stay mentally locked on the details for 48 minutes, we know we can get a win. “Just the talent we have on this team and the resiliency, you know we can get the job done. We know we haven’t been in this position before, so it’s a chapter we need to figure out and finish the story.” Veteran NBA writer Shaun Powell has worked for newspapers and other publications for more than 25 years.

Elmer Borlongan’s untold stories

  Do something different if you're in town this week. Visit the Metropolitan Museum and catch the last three days of the Elmer Borlongan exhibit---this Monday, Tuesday (open free to the public) and Wednesday.   In this exhibit marking his 25th year in art, you'll come face to face with the Filipino---so imperfect and ironic, so funny, so "barok," so human, but it's who we are, who we choose to be.   Borlongan is one artist who immerses the Filipino in his authentic environment, but without making his art look like a political manifesto. In times like these when the news (fake, fact or whatever) makes you feel like bashing your head against the wall---mor...Keep on reading: Elmer Borlongan’s untold stories.....»»

What a Few Hours in The Dessert Museum Looks Like

It's no secret that several people are intrigued by The Dessert Museum. It has pastel interiors, whimsical decor, and rooms dedicated to certain sweets. When I saw the first post about it, the first thing I asked my friends was whether everything was edible like it's Willie Wonka's chocolate factory. Yesterday, we found out that you can't eat the decor on the walls and ceilings. But, you do get free goodies per room (tip: eat something savory first). Before you enter the first room, you will be given a wristband that will be scanned if you want to avail of the treats. You're also greeted with a sign that says "DONUT JUDGE OUR DIET." Good advice. There are a total of eig...Keep on reading: What a Few Hours in The Dessert Museum Looks Like.....»»

All’s quiet for Cubs at fan convention

CHICAGO --- There was no surprise return for Jake Arrieta. No dramatic entrance for Yu Darvish, Alex Cobb or Greg Holland, either.Kris Bryant   Not even close. The Chicago Cubs settled five of their six potential arbitration cases before the start of their annual fan convention on Friday, including a record $10.85 million, one-year deal for third baseman Kris Bryant. But they remain at an impasse when it comes to another free-agent addition or a big acquisition via trade --- a common refrain during one of the slowest winters for baseball in a long time.

PVL: Cool Smashers put dent on Perlas Spikers’ record, win fifth straight

Creamline played sharp and aggressive and the BanKo Perlas Spikers just didn’t know what hit them. Alyssa Valdez and the rest of the Cool Smashers dominated the Perlas Spikers for a quick 26-24, 25-13, 25-21, win Wednesday in the Premier Volleyball League Season 2 Collegiate Conference at the FilOil Flying V Centre in San Juan. What was expected to be a shootout between two of the top title contenders turned out to be a one-sided affair with Creamline winning their fifth straight to tie their victim and Ateneo-Motolite at the top spot with 5-1 win-loss record. “Even on our part din we didn’t expect that it would be this fast kasi usually kunwari BanKo, five sets,” said Valdez. “Minindset din namin before pa na kapag BanKo ang kalaban namin it would be a long game and I think sa kaka-mind set namin we give it our 100 percent.” Valdez dropped 20 points built on 16 kills, three aces and a kill block for the Cool Smashers, who snapped the erstwhile unbeaten Perlas Spikers’ five-game winning streak. Jema Galanza added 15 markers with 13 coming from attacks and added 14 excellent receptions while setter Jia Morado had 28 excellent sets for Creamline, which tallied 46 attacks. Risa Sato, Fille Cainglet-Cayetano and Risa Sato combined for 17 points for the Cool Smashers, who received 21 free points off BanKo's errors. Creamline will close the first round of eliminations on Sunday against Ateneo-Motolite. Kathy Bersola was the only Perlas Spiker in double figures with 12 points while Nicole Tiamzon and Suzanne Roces finished with nine markers each. Dzi Gervacio was limited to only five points, her first single digit performance in the conference after averaging 18 points per game in her first five outings, for BanKo.         --- Follow this writer on Twitter, @fromtheriles.....»»
