Kerchoonz: A New Social Network

Piracy, if not the worst, is the most rampant cause of intellectual property rights violation across the globe which leads to loss of investment and income to artists, composers and recording labels alike. Suffice to say downloading free pirated music and or video over the internet through torrents and or warez sites, cripples not only a portion of a certain business establishment but the entire music and movie industry itself. Despite drastic measures enacted by different law enforcing agencies around the world, it is still not enough to eradicate the free sharing and or trading of files over and across the vast network called the internet.

For the past few years, everyone, including I had downloaded a large sum of music and or video files freely uploaded and shared over the internet. Let us face it, who would not want to get free merchandise with just a click of your mouse? However, as technology improves things, it also complicates everything as a result, hence giving birth to what everyone now knows as the Digital Rights Management (DRM). With DRM as an obstruction to free music, sources for it appeared to be scarcer than the usual.

UnknownBut luckily, there’s a certain company out there that had envisioned a goal to share a DRM free music to its users or members at the expense of paying recording labels with the revenue generated through the advertisements they had embedded within their site. The company that I’m talking about is no other than Kerchoonz, a new social networking site that was developed for musicians and artists a like so as for them to share to the whole community their piece of work. Of course, the site is still in beta phase, but even though, it really appears to be a promising site since there is this cool feature for artists with which they will be paid appropriately for every music the members had downloaded from the site. More so, if the said artist referred another colleague to the site, he will also be paid for the said sign-up.

Imagine, free DRM music for all and at the same time being paid for your work, where in the world could you get that except for Kerchoonz. So what are you waiting for, join now and be a part of a wonderful community that offers only the best.


Twlight the Movie: An Honest Review.

Twilight the Movie. An Honest Review from the Eyes of a Viewer.

To make my long narrative short, the only thing that I can say with regard to this movie is that it s-u-c-k-s! Forgive my word, vulgar and vile word, but that's what I've felt after I had watched it weeks ago.

I know, I know, you don't agree with me for you have come to like that "vampire", and sad to say that if you're driven by desire (i.e. like and love) you tend and intend to accept everything that is associated with that kind of feeling. But let's face the truth. The movie really isn't even satisfying, and not even worth a watch!

Okay, let me get straight to my points, and see if I can dissuade you from your views of the said movie.
  1. Cinematography. Poor.

  2. Special Effects. Lacking.

  3. Story. Not even catchy.

  4. There's not even a suspenseful moment in it. What I mean is, it's predictable. Everything about it can be approximately guessed correctly.
  5. No touch of a slightest romance. Despite that its "major theme" purports romance.

With all that said and done, now you know why I truly hated this movie. I was expecting more from it. More! As in more! But sad to say, I expected too much.

Blog Update

It's like what?!, almost months since I decided to stop over here to update this antiquated site, and I'm too sad to say that it will remain the same old b-o-r-i-n-g site that you had come to know of. :(

Well, not so much, just to lighten up the mood, since I had decided that I may from time to time update it. Again. Not particularly the same-old-usual-habit of splurge posting, but just enough to keep it from being indexed by search engines.

I know, I need a lot of explaining to do as to how and why I ended up forgetting that I had a blog. But as time passes by, and the fad grows accustomed and acclimated to one's system then it's easier to just leave it all behind and begin a new and fresh start. I don't mean that I intend to leave this site, but I think I need to reinvent it all again to soothe my mood as of the moment.

Anyway, this is the first step. to update this site, and I hope I can still manage to keep it and my thoughts coming. :) So long... and wait for the next update. :) That is if I had the time. :(
