At last! The Worldwide Fan Project as spearheaded by X-Files News (XFN) was done and the official video was released on XFN’s website yesterday. I’m proud to say that Pinoy X-Philes became part of this historic project. When I saw myself and my fellow Filipino X-philes on the video, I couldn’t help but be extremely pleased. Yey! Our small efforts paid off! The video was beautiful and touching. It featured X-Files fans from around the world and what 10:13 means to us fans. This was truly amazing!

X-Files News is a fan site recognized and authorized by the Fox network. Imagine being part of that! Even Frank Spotnitz, the co-writer of The X-Files TV and movie franchise, saw the video and he said he was honored and humbled by what we did. The video, aptly named “Places,” was a fitting tribute to one of the most beloved TV shows in the world. Fans from different parts of the world and in all walks of life came together not only to be seen but also to be heard. I’m so glad my group was included in this wonderful experience.

Just Like That

My entire weekend was spent malling and shopping. In fact, my aching and tired feet are still feeling that bout of leisurely pursuit. Saturday was spent meeting with my close friend’s sister in Robinsons Metro East in Marikina. And since I was already in the mall and I was planning to buy a new set of clothes anyway, I decided to look around and see if I can buy anything. But alas, I ended up not buying a thing. My shopping philosophy had always been, “There’s something better — and possibly cheaper — to buy in other stores.” So I said to myself, “No worries. I could always go out the next day and shop in Makati.” And that’s exactly what I did last Sunday. My original plan was to shop for a couple of items only. But since there was a 3-day sale at the three major malls in Makati, I found myself buying more than the items I need. I ended up with six items and spent more moolahs than what I originally planned. Just like that.

Repossession

Repo! The Genetic Opera just opened in the US last November 7. I got my first glimpse of this film during one of those awards show on TV, when they were promoting it even if it was still in production that time. I caught a sample of its music and since then, my interest was piqued. I love the music featured in this film.

For those who don’t know, Repo! The Genetic Opera is a futuristic goth opera starring Anthony Stewart Head (Giles from Buffy the Vampire Slayer), Sarah Brightman, Alexa Vega (the kid from Spy Kids), and Paris Hilton. Yup, you read it right — Paris Hilton is in this film. I myself couldn’t believe that anyone would get her to star in a musical — and with Sarah Brightman, no less! Paris Hilton and Sarah Brightman are like oil and water — they don’t mix! But then again, I still have to watch this musical to see if this combination is good or not. The problem is, the film is being shown on selected countries only. I tried searching for its release dates in other countries aside from Germany, Spain, and Canada but got nothing. I do hope they will release it here as I would love to watch it.
