Countdown to Deftones in Manila

Just one week to go before the Deftones concert. This is Deftones' second time in Manila, and I'm not missing them this time around. I missed them the first time because my friends ditched me, and I boy did I regret it. So I swore I wouldn't miss them if they came back. And they did!

If you want to watch them too, head on over to Ticket World. See you at the concert.

Meanwhile, enjoy the video!

TDK MP-100 Headphones Review

So I got my hands on these new headphones the TDK MP-100 "Around-Ear Headphones". Unlike the PR person who was explaining the TDK brand, I am actually old enough to remember using TDK cassette tapes. These were the tapes you wanted if you had the money for them. They were the bomb! So I was a little curious to see if their old school high quality audio translated to quality headphones.

Here's my little mini review:

Panasonic Lumix (Like a) G6

I admit I'm a little confused with Panasonic's recently announced new Micro Four Thirds camera, the G6. It's supposed to fit right between the now made-for-enthusiasts GF series and the professional-videographer-wannabe GH series. With the GH series getting more SLR-like and bigger, the thinking is it's supposed to appeal more to pros, while the G series is for more serious still photographers who don't need pro-spec video. That said, I have no idea who would actually buy a G6 in the real world when all the action is in the GH series and its stellar video superpowers. While I'm complaining, let me gripe about why Panasonic had to dumb down the GF series. The GF1 was pretty sweet, then the GF3 (which I do own) and every GF camera since has been clumsy and cutesy. Panasonic never needed the G series. It's like the old GF series just made uglier/ergonomic-er. Oh well, at least the GF series is cheap. Anyhoo, this is about the G6...

Is this the Olympus E-P5?

The rumor sites are all abuzz with news of the Olympus E-P5, which is supposed to launch around May 9, give or take a few days. Can no one keep a secret anymore? I've been watching the news with keen interest because I'm exactly the person who would be interested in the E-P5: I'm an E-P3 owner and I skipped the OM-D E-M5.

Here's what we know so far. I take no credit for the rumors. I got them from Also, remember that these are rumors, so who knows if they're real?
