VIDEOS – 2008 Olympics Opening Ceremony

View from Tianamen Square

Tens of thousands of joyous citizens crowded around Beijing’s Tiananmen Square on Friday, the symbolic heart of China, as the Olympic spirit swept across the nation as the Games began.

Amazing Fireworks Display

The Olympic Games 2008 kick off with China putting on a dazzling opening ceremony, complete with fireworks all over Beijing.

Video by Wall Street Journal

As an important moment in China’s history approaches, WSJ’s Loretta Chao explores what is happening around Beijing during the opening ceremony of the 2008 Olympics.

Video from Reuters

Fireworks and weather worries around the Olympics in the first day of athletics. Warnings that smog would hinder performance have persisted despite an $18 billion campaign to clean the air around the city by shutting down smokestack industry and forcing cars off the roads. The Olympic flame, lit at a spectacular ceremony on Friday, was burning in hazy, heavy skies on Saturday.

Paolo or Martin

IT’S SUNDAY! NOW WHO WANTS SOME EYE CANDY?

I thought I’d do a little fun post. Paolo and Martin are these two chica men that’s been on my radar for quite some time… but I’ve kept my silence because, as you know, I feel uneasy and uncomfy with really chica people. My friends can attest to that. I wanted to blog about them for the longest time but I wasn’t sure how they would react. And then lo and behold comes an email a few days ago from my friend showing another blogger who blogged about Martin and I was like “THAT SKANK GOT TO IT FIRST” (haha just kidding)!!! Sooooo… instead of blogging about them separately, I thought I’d do a poll and hit two pigeons with one stone. Ok ladies and queens… this is Martin. He seriously is the most FASHYON man I have ever seen in my entire life. THIS IS HOW YOU DO FEROSHEEEEYOUS.

and this is Paolo. He’s from Sweden.

DO NOT VOTE UNTIL YOU’VE SEEN THE ENTIRE BLOG ENTRY (MOAR PICS COMING UP). NO CHEATING, MMKAY?

Here’s the $64 million dollar question.

Click click click!

BTW Y’all better vote or else I’ll personally send my goons to sort you out.
(and that goes to you too, Kitty, Melissa and Cecile)

You have got to be kidding me.

WHAT IS WRONG WITH THE WORLD? Another neighbor died earlier this morning. This is the THIRD death on our street this year. This time, it's the very old (and very sick) lady who lives in the house right in front of the house beside ours (the one who died from lung cancer).

Not funny.

Not funny.

I’ve had my own fair share of psycho freaks in my humble Bryanboy.com blogging career of four years. Some of you know that the freakiest moment (so far) has got to be the time when a bunch of girls followed me and my grandma to the hospital and took pictures at the parking lot.

Well, I got up this morning with the maids telling me that some man left these awful posters on our doorstep.

I have about 20 posters along with what seemed to be hundreds of animal-rights whatever flyers, pamphlets, leaflets, etc. Just like that. PETA Philippines/PETAAsia Pacific, if you are reading this blog entry you are barking at the wrong tree.

The funny thing is that they think they can scare me with these awful images but hello… I’m a big Rotten.com fan!

Anna Wintour, check. Donna Karan, check. Can you believe it took PETA four friggin years to target my ass? Someone’s got an awful lot of spare time on their hands. Oh and contrary to what some of you think, no, I have not ballooned to 300 pounds. I have finally reached my goal weight of 130 recently as I’ve been eating and exercising a lot. It’s not easy, you know? Well, my goal this year is to be athletic. Whatever that is.

Some of the junk I received today. There’s more of that where they came from.

Peta targets Bryanboy

I’ll wear my Lagerfeld Gallery fox when I burn that trash this weekend.

I immediately thought of something brilliant… as in "ding ding ding!" brilliant right after I finished reading that note. Ka-ching, ka-ching, ka-ching, ching-a-ling-a-ling ching chong!

I know, I know, I’m such a bloody opportunist… but what can I do? It’s my nature to create opportunities out of nothing.

Soooo.. from now and going on forward, I’m gonna publish SOME of my readers’ emails (with their permission of course + their personal information KEPT private) and answer INTERESTING questions on my blog.

After all these years of being online, I think it’s fair that I create my own little advice column, no?

Funny I say that now considering I usually have problems keeping up with the sheer volume of emails I get. Har dee har har.

NOW.

Let’s help Boggy now, shall we?

   
 

   

 

 

   

 

First things first — I’m sorry you’re feeling that way. It’s not fun being depressed!

I know it’s a bitch whenever things aren’t working the way they’re supposed to be  but you know what? It’s moments like these that makes us stronger in the long run. Life isn’t all about smooth sailing… we’ll always have challenges we have to tackle and rough times we have to deal with.

Well hello there!
      
   

Last but not the least (and this is what I live by every single day)… always remember that life is a runway and every day is a fashion show. Whatever happens, the show must go on so you better suck those cheeks, suck your stomach in, arch your back and stick your chest out. You and me baby are nothing but mammals so let’s do it like they do it on the FTV channel, sing with me everybody now!

You know I love you Gemma. Hahaha!

And there you have it. HOOOOEEEEAAAALY MOTHER OF GOD DAYUMMM I’M GOOD.

As always, email me and tell me you love me. My email address is bryanboy@gmail.com.

I love you all!
