Land Rovers = Off Road

I opted to join Marc et al last Sunday to go off roading in relatively nearby Tanay, Rizal. Boy was I glad I did. It was a great experience and a real eye opener on what the LRs could really do. We crossed creeks, rivers, rocks, dirt, sand, mud, gravel, foilage and at wild speeds and impossible angles at times, impressive machines and driving. We took a dip in the river, something I haven't done in more than 10 years, brought back a lot of good 'ol camping memories. Marc packed a great 'picnic' we had steaks, corn, chickboy adobo [that's chicken and baboy], fresh buko juice [from the tree baby], and of course Marc's freshly made pesto penne. We then did an intermediate run on 'SPONGEBOB' [that's the name of the vehicle], I was hanging on for dear life and was being tossed around like a rag doll but it was an adrenaline rush too see what you were trying to traverse or what you already have [if you look back]. Fish/squidballs, pandesal and corn beef and red wine for merienda.

While they were eating merienda I took the FR2 for a very short drive. I think I'm in love with the STORM TROOPER white LAND ROVER FREELANDER2 TURBO DIESEL 4. The suspension and the drive was so nice, and don't get me started with the interiors! ANG GWAPO LANG TALAGA EH!!!

Good company, amazing stories, off the hook food, and of course awesome machines... Such a great experience.

SPECIAL THANKS TO: CRAM and JO, you guys made my weekend!

Tips & Tricks|Orientation Aware Backgrounds

I just wanted to share some stuff I learned over at xda-dev's forum today.
Anyway as the title states this is about today themes and Orientation Aware Backgrounds. It's really quite simple
All you need is 2 images [3 if you want to change the Start Menu image as well] of the proper resolution.

What you do is copy the files to \Windows directory and viola! Orientation Aware Backgrounds!
Notes: The theme's default images will be used once you switch themes. So you would need to copy the files back again to \Windows dir for it to work again, what I do is I have placed Wallpaper sets in ZIP files on my Storage Card so I can change and change as desired.…

Black Cat vs Firestar vs Silver Sable?

Spider-man needs a partner or side-kick. I prefer crime fighting partner vs side-kick tho.

Marvel is rumored to be hiring Josh Brolin for Thanos as the mega-villain for their cinematic universe. This means Guardians of the Galaxy & Avengers. Both are super teams.

Fox has teased a mega-villain for the X-Men super-team to go up against in their latest movie. FYI, X-Men: Days of Future Past has a post credit scene. I think Fantastic Four is also being rebooted. Yes that is a super-team as well.

DC still playing catch-up but they are going in with the heavy hitters Bats & Boy Scout with a rumored Amazon in the mix. We all know the goal is the Justice League super-team

Meanwhile, I think Sony is in trouble. Right now they have the "Web Head" going up against multiple villains and the formula is kinda stale. Franchise fatigue not withstanding, our favorite web slinging, trash talking super-hero has the "Sinister Six" super villain group to fight but who can h…
