2017 NASCAR Monster Energy Cup - Ford EcoBoost 400

Homestead-Miami Raceway, the final destination of the Monster Energy NASCAR Championship and where the trail of the Championship 4 ends there as Martin Truex Jr., Kevin Harvick, Kyle Busch, and Brad Keselowski are going all out to show the world who will be worthy of the trophy.

It's also where the trail of Dale Earnhardt Jr ends following his shocking announcement that he will retire from NASCAR after this season and following his announcement, most of his sponsors are paying tribute to the #88. Other than Dale Earnhardt Jr., Kurt Busch is not signing up for next year's season while Matt Kenseth announces he will step away from this sport indefinitely. Recently, Danica Patrick, the only female driver in NASCAR, sadly announced her departure from being a full-time driver but she will drive for next year's Daytona 500.

With all that emotional farewell from some of the well-known drivers going on, let's recap on what's happening in the final leg of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series;

In Lap 60, Jimmie Johnson's car faces light damage from the right side and he's off to the pits for new tires. In Lap 80, Kyle Larson wins Stage 1 but Keselowski's leading in the Championship 4. In Lap 142, Danica Patrick's career came to a fiery end when she collided with the wall and later hit by a car behind her, causing her car to burst flames and she's out. In Lap 160, Larson nabs another stage win but Martin Truex Jr. leads the Championship 4.


At the end of this 400-mile race in Homestead-Miami, the winner of the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup is Martin Truex Jr. The 37-year-old driver has turned his tragedy into triumph as he did it for his team owner, who suffered heart attack, and for his long-time girlfriend, who struggles with ovarian cancer.

Dale Earnhardt Jr., who now retires from this sport and an impressive career, managed to say kind words to Truex Jr.

Thank you Dale Earnhardt Jr., for your impressive career in NASCAR history and may our paths cross someday. And congratulations to Martin Truex Jr. for winning the Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series!

Before Martin Truex Jr.'s win at this cup, this weekend's champions are Christopher Bell for the Camping World Truck Series and William Byron for the xfinity series.

And that is the end of this NASCAR season! See you in Daytona this February!

How to dress as Nate or Hailey Anne

The world of Yo-Kai Watch can be downright hilarious and downright messy if you are either Nate (with Jibanyan and Whisper alongside) or Hailey Anne (with USApyon alongside) but because of your Yo-Kai Watch, you might be able to find the spirits causing so many mess in the human world faster than Whisper flicking his Yo-Kai Pad endlessly. Let's admit it, we're all fans of Level 5's popular video game franchise that spawned a TV anime series, a plethora of toys, movies that come out every holiday season, and the dance steps that became the trending topic in every Japanese household.

 

We always wanted to dress as one of the Yo-Kai Watch users as seen in the games and the TV series because if we're the ones to blame the supernatural for everyday nuisance, we've come to the right spot and today, it's time for me, your honorary Whisper of the day, will show you how to dress as the stars of Yo-Kai Watch.

As Nate:

Keita Amano (or Nate) is an average kid who became a Yo-Kai Watch user after his fateful encounter with the so-called Yo-Kai butler Whisper after releasing him from a mysterious vending machine while he was busy catching bugs in the summer. With the Yo-Kai Watch, Nate can encounter different kinds of Yo-Kais making too much trouble in the human world.

Because of the change in times, I decided to pick Nate's current costume as seen in the current Yo-Kai Watch series, especially the YW3 Sushi/Tempura/Sukiyaki games, but he wears two kinds of outfits depending on the season so let's begin with...

NATE'S SPRING/SUMMER OUTFIT:
  • First, get a brown hair and make sure it's as spiky as Nate's.
  • In the current series, Nate wears a sky blue shirt, and a red short-sleeved polo shirt with a star on each sleeve. Feel free to recreate that look.
  • Then, get some beige pants and then trim it to about 80% coverage. Feel free to add some bits on each side if you wish.
  • As for footwear, it has to be brown, short boots.
  • To complete the look, you'll need the toy replica of the Yo-Kai Watch DREAM. Of course, you can pick whatever Yo-Kai Watch you want, even the old Yo-Kai Watch U Prototype toy but the Yo-Kai Watch DREAM is my recommendation to this look. For optional consideration; buy the new Crystal Treasure skin for the Yo-Kai Watch DREAM in case you're going to summon a mystery legend.
  • OPTIONAL: Get a plush toy of either Whisper, Jibanyan, or both.
NATE'S AUTUMN/WINTER OUTFIT:
  • Like the last one, get a brown hair and make sure it's as spiky as Nate's.
  • There are three upper outfits on this getup; a black-and-white striped T-shirt, a white hoodie without a zipper, and a red jacket with some zipper on it. Be sure to have those in the shopping list while you can but the white hoodie can be a tricky find.
  • After that, get some green cargo trousers that matches his.
  • Shoes? Blue Converse shoes. Sort of...
  • Like before, any Yo-Kai Watch replica toy but the Yo-Kai Watch DREAM is the recommendation. And as an option; a Yo-Kai plush of either Whisper, Jibanyan, or both.

As Hailey Anne:

Inaho Misora (or Hailey Anne) is a proper sci-fi geek and anime otaku who first encountered USApyon in a middle of the alleyway when the space watch toy she bought at the store was actually a Yo-Kai Watch. With Hailey Anne and USApyon as partners, they've been through different adventures such as how to build a rocket, solving mysteries like detectives, drawing attention from the FBY agents, and more. Deep down, she can be a real pain in Nate's back side because she's a Yo-Kai Watch user like him and they can be the fiercest of rivals, if you may.

Like Nate, Hailey Anne wears two different outfits depending on the season so let's begin with...

HAILEY ANNE'S SPRING/SUMMER OUTFIT:
  • Short, puffy, and purplish. That's what describe Hailey Anne's hair like so feel free to recreate her hairstyle. Oh, and don't forget her glasses.
  • Hailey Anne wears a sky blue T-shirt and a pink cardigan so put that in your shopping list if you are going to dress as her.
  • Below, Hailey Anne wears a beige and short A-line skirt and some blue leggings. Add that to the list as well.
  • Lastly, you'll going to need some yellow shoes to finish the look or not because you're going to need one last thing...
  • In the TV show, she uses a Yo-Kai Watch U Prototype. Feel free to find a toy replica of her Yo-Kai Watch online and for optional consideration, the VersionU2 skin for the Yo-Kai Watch U Prototype toy.
  • OPTIONAL: Hailey Anne's partner Yo-Kai is some space otter named USApyon and if you're going to be like her, you're going to need a plush toy of her Yo-Kai partner.
HAILEY ANNE'S AUTUMN/WINTER OUTFIT:
  • Like before, get a purple hair and make sure it's short and puffy, just like Hailey Anne's.
  • On the top, be sure to wear a sky blue sweater and a pink long jacket but make sure it's not too puffy, not too long, or not too leathery. It's about as similar as Hailey Anne's.
  • Below, she wears a short, brownish A-line skirt that is now over the knee and then, some dark red leggings. Be sure to have those alongside the ones on the top.
  • As for shoes, you're going to need some short gray boots for this.
  • Like before, a Yo-Kai Watch U Prototype toy and an optional VersionU2 skin for it. Also, the USApyon plush toy if necessary.
...and there you have it. Dressing as one of the Yo-Kai Watch users of the show, you're off for some supernatural shenanigans in case you're off into your next convention or go trick-or-treating but either way, not only you'll look just like one of them but you're ready for some hilarious misadventures with your favorite Yo-Kais!

The Star: The Story of The First Christmas

Every religious people know about The Nativity but no one heard about the unsung heroes of The Nativity until now...sort of because the unsung heroes of The Nativity were...animals and in this animated film from Sony Pictures Animation, we get to know about the other heroes who saved The First Christmas.

The Star

In The Star, we get to know about the unsung heroes of The Nativity, the animals who saved Christmas from a wretched tyrant who wants to gets his hands on the Holy Child. It's about a small donkey who steps out from his comfort zone and into his biggest adventure of his life as he teams up with a sheep named Ruth, a dove named Dave, and some other animals he encounter later on as they set off to follow the Star and save The Nativity.

What we have here is a proper Christmas movie for the religious of families who want something that isn't about snowing, or Santa Claus, or gifts, or whatever Christmas cliche they come across. No. What they really want is a Christmas movie that centers on the true meaning of Christmas in the form of witnessing The Nativity even in the eyes of the animals who became the unsung heroes of The Nativity, no matter what lays ahead with them.

Of course, with all that hilarity ensued like most typical cartoon films we are used to, and its above average potential that will charm moviegoers with their characters, that won't stop moviegoers from watching a proper Christmas movie about the First Christmas, even families who spend their kids binge-watching Superbook all day long before setting off to see this film. With some humor, some potential, and some lessons we can all share it from, The Star is a Christmas flick we can really watch if we had it with those usual Christmas cliche and I think they're on to something here.

My rating: 3.7 out of 5.

Fall Back (2017 film)

Fall Back

It's the hump of November and we have another rom-com movie on our sights now at the end of our work day as Star Cinema and CINEKO brings them a new rom-com film starring Zanjoe Marudo, Rhian Ramos, and Daniel Matsunaga, among many others. It's called Fall Back and it's directed by Jason Paul Laxamana.

This film is all about a woman who was feared of getting herself hurt in love but she's always prepared with whatever means necessary in her encounter with her present boyfriend and her ex-boyfriend. Like most rom-com films, it never really hooks the viewers because it can be a tad above average or decent if you may but despite its flaws, this film is a decent view for everyone and they can watch it until the end of the movie, even when they're sleep-deprived or not looking, as long as you have a knowing that watching movie is fun, not for talking about serious stuff because while this movie is not as serious as any Pinoy rom-com movies you are familiar with, it's a good watch and you can really feel some hugot vibes on this movie because being a hugot movie, it really pulls your heart off like a cold comfort in a dark room.

Still, this film has some positivity throughout this hugot-prone rom-com because while it's somewhat above average, it can be somewhat rather nice.

My rating: 3.4 out of 5.

Justice League (2017 film)

Fans of DC Comics have been clamoring that one day, a movie version of the Justice League, which is how you formally call to those Superfriends that Superman, Batman, and Wonder Woman assembled, will come and it did. Just. So, what's it all about the long-awaited movie adaptation of the Justice League and is it worth the wait in the long line of superhero flicks releasing this decade?

Justice League

DC Comics fan got what they finally deserved as the movie adaptation of Justice League has arrived to show that all superheroes can't save the world alone because differences aside, they fight for one common goal; saving the world. Ben Affleck, Henry Cavill, and Gal Gadot are reprising their roles of Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman, while Ezra Miller, Jason Momoa, and Ray Fisher are all in as The Flash, Aquaman, and Cyborg. Quite an unexpected lineup they're having, eh?

Following the events of last year's Batman vs. Superman film, Bruce Wayne a.k.a. Batman summoned Diana Princa a.k.a. Wonder Woman to take out a ruthless supervillain from unleashing havoc throughout the world but despite the foundation of the League, they found out that taking this powerful enemy needs a lot more of themselves.

For most DC fans, it's an honor to have a Justice League film in theaters because they feel like they've been humbled to witness the team-up of DC Comics' greatest superheroes ever assembled and that is a dream come true. But for some, it's not like the Justice League they're familiar with. Sure, they have the founding superheroes doing their job saving the day but for some, they should have known better and they've really wish they should need to make more Justice League films to add some more DC heroes on their roster.

The biggest problem of this movie is not just the eye-gluing visuals, the all-seing storyline, and the unexpected thrills this superhero flick delivers. It was sadly the product placement and they've enlisted Mercedes-Benz to show their products on this flick. Annoyingly, they did featured the Mercedes-AMG Vision Gran Turismo concept as one of Bruce Wayne's rides and it has completely ruined it because what's a Gran Turismo car doing in a DC superhero flick? No one knows but even the product placement completely ruined the film's taste for those who have exquisite tastes, you'd be well forgiven that the more this film progresses, the more you're starting to admit that you're going to love the Justice League film right up to the moment when it all goes horribly wrong. Still, it's been a greater honor for those who made the dream of having a Justice League film a living reality and fans are now seeing it with their own eyes.

My rating: 3.9 out of 5.

BUBBLE GANG PAROKYA BENTE DOS - A LAUGH STORY #BGParokya22

The Philippines' funniest comedy gag show in history, Bubble Gang, celebrates their 22nd anniversary by taking their brand of comedy to a live audience on the 22nd anniversary special titled BUBBLE GANG PAROKYA BENTE DOS - A LAUGH STORY. A dramatic musical performance starring the Bubble Gang!


In this musical, it's about Buloy (played by Michael V) who wants to be in a show with his favorite actress (played by Kim Domingo) but later failed but not giving up hope to meet her. However, someone's plotting to ruin the actress' reputation. This musical blends drama, suspense, music, and some signature Bubble Gang humor for the masses.

It's great to see the Bubble Gang doing something they've never done to their tenure and that is making a musical about a boy and his dream and I think that's one fantastic idea they've never done in their whole life and they did it with different results while celebrating 22 years of the country's funniest gag show.

Happy 22nd anniversary, Bubble Gang!

Pocket Monsters Ultra Sun and Moon

Last year, the Pocket Monster (PokeMon) franchise celebrated their 20th anniversary with their newest installment, Pocket Monster Sun and Moon. In that game, players venture across the Alola Region capturing new Pokemon, battle, take on trials, uncover the legend of Solgaleo or Lunala, unleashing powerful Z-moves and face against the threats from the Ultra Beasts. If the original Sun and Moon games wasn't enough to whet your appetite for new Pokemon, here comes the definitive Alola adventure that will make you love the Alola Region more.


Welcome everyone to Pocket Monsters Ultra Sun and Moon, the definitive Sun and Moon experience that's got more ways to enjoy than the original. If by definitive, it really is because with all the past, present, and future collide, this will be the Pokemon game you will never forget.

Like most games, the adventure starts with a choosing and just like in the original, you can start with either Rowlet, Litten, or Popplio. With the Pokemon of your choice set, the adventure begins and as a trainer, you can explore the vast wonders of the Alola region; collect and battle Pokemon, take on trials, stand up to incoming threats, and uncover the hidden truth in this region. Since this is Ultra, we delve deeper to the secret of the legendary Prism PokeMon Necrozma.

No one really knows what Necrozma is all about until now and we are going to witness a transformation beyond the fabric of time as Necrozma's power cannibalizes either Solgaleo or Lunala to become Dusk Mane Necrozma or Dawn Wings Necrozma. But there's more to it than that because what happens when you engage Necrozma's Ultra Boost? You'll have to figure out for yourself.

With Solgaleo or Lunala's power, you can travel through Ultra Wormholes in search not just the fearsome Ultra Beasts, but also legendary Pokemon from past installments! With legendaries making a grand comeback and in addition of two new Ultra Beasts, the National PokeDex count is now 803 and counting! This is going to be the most epic Pokemon adventure yet!

Be warned, with familiar baddies lurking around Alola, especially those from Team Skull and the Aether Foundation, you've been gunned down by those mysterious people known as the Ultra Recon Squad and worse, a rogue gallery of villains from past games have returned to form Team Rainbow Rocket and they're going to hunt you down unless you are prepared for the worst.

Like the original, Ultra Sun and Moon features Z-moves that can turn the tide of the battle. Players need a specific Z-Crystal, which can be obtained from clearing trials or other things, and specific Pokemon moves to trigger it. Most can deliver massive damage but when coupled with non-damaging moves, it triggers additional effects. In Ultra Sun and Moon, there are new Pokemon-exclusive Z-moves that can turn the tide of the battle such as Solgaleo's Searing Sunraze Smash, Lunala's Menacing Moonraze Maelstrom, Kommo-o's Clangorous Soulblaze, Mimikyu's Let's Snuggle Forever, and Lycanroc's Splintered Stormshards. Put these Z-moves to good use! Did you know that you can experience the full Z-Power action with the Z-Power Ring toy from Takara Tomy?

The Rotom Dex we are familiar with is now upgraded with new features such as the Roto Loto, which grants you one special powerup that can be proven useful on your adventures such as faster hatching, befriending, extra EXP, and more. Use it further and you will gain a new feature that lets your Pokemon use a Z-move a second time! Thanks Rotom Dex! And guess what? Takara Tomy made a Rotom Dex replica toy that works well in the Ultra Sun and Moon games.

By public demand, they're bringing back the shops where you can teach Pokemon outlandish moves that you can't get from either leveling up or by TM. Of course, you're going to need BP which you can earn from winning battles at the Battle Royal, Battle Tree, and the new Battle Agency. But if battling isn't your thing, why not earn BP by performing better in the brand new Mantine Surf minigame.

Oh, about that Battle Agency, it's a new place where they will provide a random set of Pokemon you will be using and all you have to do is win. Do well, you will get BP for purchasing outlandish items or moves for your Pokemon.

Did you know that you can get totem-sized Pokemon when you exchange Totem Stickers? If you collect Totem Stickers hidden throughout the Alola Region, you can exchange it for a totem -sized Pokemon of your choosing, and the choice differs from each version. For instance, Ultra Sun players can get a totem-size Lurantis while Ultra Moon players can get a totem-size Salazzle. Of course, they don't do special effects like how Totem Pokemon do but that sizing is worth the bragging rights.

If you're having a break, you can visit the new Alola Photo Club where you can take pictures of you and your favorite Pokemon so you can show it to the world.

For two decades, the Pokemon games became a household name known the world over and with the arrival of Ultra Sun and Moon, the best just got even better because with so many new stuff going on around, it makes you want to waste precious amounts of time living on the Alola Region for more. Are you ready?

Guess what? There are two special Pokemon up for grabs! 

Those who pre-ordered it will gain access to a special Rockruff that can be evolved to the brand new Dusk Forme Lycanroc. To evolve it, make sure it's 5:00PM Alola Time so if your not sure, talk to the barista at the nearest Pokemon Center. He knows what time it is on Alola time and if its 5:00PM, do hurry because you have an hour of dusk to evolve Rockruff into Dusk Forme Lycanroc.

Have you got the Pokemon Ga-ole card of Ash's Pikachu as a gift of watching "Pokemon the Movie: I Choose You!" last summer? Use the QR Scanner to scan its QR code and you will trigger a special quest, where you will have a chance to get the "I Choose You" version of Ash's Pikachu and as a bonus, a Pikashunium Z crystal where you can trigger Ash's Pikachu's Z-move, the 10,000,000 Volt Thunderbolt. Enjoy your new Alola story with these two special Pokemon!

10 years of Uncharted

Ever since the first Uncharted game was launched on the PlayStation3 on the 26th of November, 2007, the name Nathan Drake is now well known to video game fanatics everywhere. The folks behind our childhood hero Crash Bandicoot wanted to create an action adventure game reminiscent of the Tomb Raider games and as the result, the very first male Lara Croft is here.



From the road to El Dorado to Libertalia, from endless calamities, shooting, running about, doing somersaults, a lot of high-speed driving, not to mention the memorable cast of characters in store for him, the adventures of Nathan Drake couldn't get even more epic than this and in celebration of the Uncharted franchise's 10th anniversary, let's take a quick history lesson on Naughty Dog's hit action adventure franchise that made a name on PlayStation history.

Uncharted: Drake's Fortune (PS3/2007) - The first Uncharted game was launched on the PlayStation 3 ten years ago and in this first installment, Nathan Drake, along with allies Victor Sullivan and Elena Fisher, are on the search for Sir Francis Drake's treasure hidden somewhere in a South American ruins while being hunted down by pirates and mercenaries alike.

Uncharted 2: Among Thieves (PS3/2009) - Two years after the original, the sequel to the Uncharted game was launched and in this second installment, Nate is on the Himalayas, discovering the Tree of Life as foretold by Marco Polo. With new and returning faces alike, his Himalayan adventure packs more twists, thrills, action, and some sense of humor than his El Dorado adventure from the beginning. This is the first to have multiplayer gameplay.

Uncharted 3: Drake's Deception (PS3/2011) - Known to be one of the most thrilling installment of the Uncharted saga, Nathan Drake is on a mission to find the lost civilization hidden under the Middle Eastern desert before a woman from Sully's past, Marlowe, gets to it first. We get to discover how fate brought Nate and Sully together and the deception lies within his "greatness." By land, air, and sea, this adventure is one heck of a ride in so many levels and with all that signature Uncharted moments on it, Drake's Deception is one of the most thrilling installments in the Uncharted saga.

Uncharted: Golden Abyss (PSVita/2012) - When the PSVita launched in the USA on the first quarter of 2012, Uncharted Golden Abyss is one of the PSVita's first offerings. Torn between the rivalry between Jason Dante - his old friend - and Marisa Chase - the granddaughter of an archaeologist who disappeared without a trace - Nate ventures throughout Central America in search of a lost civilization while being pursued by a warlord who wanted to get the riches that lies beneath the Golden Abyss. This game plays in both ways by either playing it old-school or taking advantage of the PSVita's capabilities such as touching, steering, and tilting. It even comes with the Fight for Fortune card game where you can collect cards, either in-game or DLC, and battle.

Uncharted 4: A Thief's End (PS4/2016) - This is known to be the definitive installment of the Uncharted franchise when it was launched on the PlayStation4 last year. A Thief's End brings players the thrilling conclusion of Nathan Drake's story. Summoned by his older brother Sam, whom he thought he died in a middle of a prison bust 15 years ago, Nate steps out from his normal life and back into the world of thieves as he's on an epic globetrotting adventure from Europe to Africa to find Captain Avery's treasure. Believe it or not, there's a special cameo appearance by Crash Bandicoot himself. For those who are done witnessing the epic climax of Nate's journey, they can experience the most hardcore multiplayer gameplay as well as the new Survival mode via an update that came out this year alongside The Lost Legacy.

Uncharted: The Lost Legacy (PS4/2017) - The Lost Legacy is a standalone Uncharted spinoff set after the dramatic events of A Thief's End. In The Lost Legacy, the two familiar women in the Uncharted games returned for an uneasy alliance in search of an ancient artefact. I'm talking about Chloe Frazier, the woman who helped Nate in 2 and 3, and Nadine Ross, a mercenary who made Nate's life miserable in A Thief's End, joined forces as they explore the Western Ghats of India in search of an ancient treasure before a ruthless warlord gets his hands on it. Even with a different main character, it still has some signature Uncharted moments on it.

Happy tenth anniversary to Naughty Dog's Uncharted franchise and here's for ten more years of epic treasure-hunting adventures!

Be sure to experience the beginning with Uncharted: The Nathan Drake Collection on the PlayStation4, which comes with the first three installments digitally remastered for this console. Then, see how it all ended in Uncharted 4: A Thief's End, and how it picks up after this in Uncharted: The Lost Legacy. Oh, and be sure to experience Uncharted on the PSVita on Uncharted: Golden Abyss.

Don't ruin the moment...
