After the last day of our Segway video shoot, we went to Japo’s gig at Saguijo Bar in Makati. Paranoid City was his band that night, and not playing as Valet Parking nor sessioning for PediCab. To my surprise, I was able meet and watch Cholo play again after God knows how long – he’s one of the first bandmates I had in our late graders. His new group is called Yolanda Moon, and plays a bit on the post-rock side of the genre spectrum. His other band, Ernville, whom I got to watch the last time, was keeping it low for the moment.
Having brought my camera with me, of course I took pictures. I challenged myself to a 50mm survival mode without flash and lights so longer shutter speeds follow. Blur tolerance is advised.

The next day after posting my old PC for sale, a friend of Perfect Renders videographer Japo immediately decided to buy it right away. Thank you, Alex G., for your patronage! :)
So after almost two years, I finally get to upgrade yet again! This time, with the goal of being able to render faster and more efficiently when it comes to work. Meaning, post-production with videos using Adobe Premiere and After Effects along with a load of machine-abusing third party plugins. They can BSOD your PC immediately when it can’t keep up. >.
The new machine comprises of the ff. hardware:
Processor: Intel Core i7-2600k
Motherboard: Asus P8Z68-M Pro
Video Card: Inno3D GTX560 1 GB DDr5 256-bit
Hard Disk Drive: 1TB Hitachi Sata
Memory: Gskills Ripjaws 8GB (4×2)
DVD Drive: Liteon 24x Sata
Power Supply: Coolermaster GX650w
CPU Casing: Thermaltake V4 Chassis
Comparing this one from my old machine, it’s somewhat a pretty average leap since the upgrade could have been pushed a little farther. The problem being, like any other frustrated computer geek who wants the best rig, is cold, hard cash. Instead of of Intel i7-2600k and GTX 560, I would have gone for the 25k GTX580 and 27k Intel i7-3930k, respectively. But man, my wallet and bank accounts just can’t keep up! Lol.
Well anyway, I guess this would have to do for now. Expect more awesome videos soon! \m/
