Here, there and everywhere

I haven't been up to blogging lately primarily because I find myself stuck in a number of things right now at work and in my studies so I never really had that much free time to write.

As the American rock band Incubus, face protest about their upcoming Philippines show courtesy of a text message is circulating throughout the Philippines that asks local Philippine residents to pray against Incubus, pointing to the band's name which people associate a "with male demon believed to lie on sleeping persons." In response, Incubus singer Brandon Boyd enlighted folks with the band name's origins saying: "And we were 15 and we had to think of a name quickly because we got to play at a party in someone's backyard." This goes to show two things: 1) Religious fanatics are stupid and will react in opposition to anything without considering facts 2) Incubus aren't really as brilliantly profound as many among us would like to believe.
