David and Gerard

There's no better way to welcome the new season of American Idol
than meeting an American Idol alumnus DAVID ARCHULETA!! 

Gerard knows what you're thinking: "HE'S HERE AGAIN???" It's true, he just keeps coming back. Well, as long as Saudi Arabia produces airplane fuel, David will keep coming back here in the Philippines hahaha!

Gerard got the chance to attend the press conference of David Archuleta here in Manila. At the presscon, David said he will be in town to film a show this February with TV5 called Nandito Ako. Gerard probably knows you're next question: "WHY?????" And to answer that: "Why not?" David will be putting down his mic for a while to try his hands at acting along side Eula Caballero and Gerard's biggest celebrity crush, Jasmine Curtis-Smith *blush*. Oh wait ...sorry...David will also be singing the Filipino theme song of the series! Gerard can almost hear David singing a few slang lines: "Nen-deeetow akoooohw umii-bhig sayeowwww...." 

David was really nice, simple and game, even giving in to posing with Gerard. He even turned Gerard's wind-up key to see his signature "robo-dance"move.

Hooray!! Cheers to Go, Gerard's baptism of international stars.

In the Company of Wolfgang

WOLFGANG. Heavy metal. Rock. Grunge. Aggressive. Hard. Fast. Loud. 

Basti Artadi and Manuel Legarda in their full Tisoy glory.

Wolfgang has been Gerard's favorite rock band and the biggest influence to so many other bands. He remembers having all the cassette tapes of their previous albums (insert age here). Gerard watched their live performance at The Surf and Music Festival in Baler, Aurora last year. His metal throat hurt singing to Wolfgang's "Halik ni Hudas". He even participated full-on in a mosh pit for the first time.  And yes, the bruises and the pain after is so worth it. \m/  \m/

New Year's Resolution List

This 2012...Gerard wants to:
  1. work out more
  2. save
  3. have an oil change every 6 months to avoid breakdowns (physically and mentally)
  4. keep up with the Kardashians
  5. make new friends
  6. be more confident
  7. be the robo boss of 2012
To kickoff 2012, he asked Nimu's friend and makeup artist Cathy Cantada-Dizon for a "robo-makeover". Even though Cathy is an expert makeup artist for celebs, models, and brides, she happily agreed to be Gerard's "fairy godmother". 
Cathy and Gerard talked about music, Yoga, Paris Hilton, and the 20th Century Fox opening theme song obsession of his cute son, Crow. After the not-so-extreme-robo makeover, Gerard not only had more confidence, he also made a new friend! Thanks, Cathy!
