Over dinner at Mamou, Ginggay expressed disappointment over the last movie I recommended (Chalet Girl) so I have to redeem myself by recommending something worth downloading.
Steve Soboslai sings in an American band called Punchline. More than five years ago, he met Dana Kinsey at a gig and continued an online long-distance friendship over five years. Emphasis on friendship.
L-R: Punchline’s Chris Fafalios, Steve Soboslai, Paul Menotiades, and Cory Muro
Object of desire: Dana Kinsey
Five years later, Steve gets an opportunity to tell Dana how he really feels about her through a flash mob organized by Howie Mandel and his Mobbed team.
Faced with a mob of hundreds, will Dana accept Steve’s proposition to go to the next level?
If you love romance and surprises, I seriously am asking you to search and download Mobbed, Episode 3.

We join other Yayoi Kusama fans in anticipating her collaboration with Louis Vuitton this July 2012.
In 2006, the dots-obsessed Kusama met with Louis Vuitton Creative Director Marc Jacobs in Tokyo.
The meeting was recorded in the documentary, Marc Jacobs & Louis Vuitton, which was released in 2007.
Stills from the meeting are shown below, where Kusama presents Jacobs with a personalized Louis Vuitton bag, perhaps giving us a preview of what’s in store this Spring.
Aside from this collaboration, Louis Vuitton is supporting Yayoi Kusama’s upcoming exhibition this February 9-June 5, 2012 at the Tate Modern in London.
She will also create an installation for Louis Vuitton’s New Bond Street Maison gallery. (Source)

We have just weighed our sons’ school bags. The older one’s bag weighs 27 lbs. while the younger one’s weighs 31 lbs.
We worry about them lugging their bags through six flights of stairs and how it will affect their bones and growth.
About two years ago my friend Patrice wondered if the school our kids go to would transition to using tablets, instead of carrying multiple textbooks on a daily basis.
The school responded to parents’ complaints by installing lockers for the older kids, that’s why my older son’s bag weighs 4 lbs. less than his brother’s. Still, it weighs a ton.
The school also built ramps all the way to the third floor to help the kids lug their heavy wheeled baggage upwards.
Now comes Apple’s iBooks Textbooks and school will never be the same again.
If and when this comes to our country, what worries me is how can some parents afford the tablets, and how would one deal with theft that happens in schools everywhere?
When I was in grade school I lost a wallet, money, a collection of really cute sharpeners, and a bag containing a huge boom box—but losing all of that wouldn’t hurt as much as losing one’s iPad.
Do you support iPads as textbooks, or should we stick to the old?
