Welcome to LEVEL 7

Being a comic book geek has its moments. There are times wherein you can't talk to anyone about the awesome book you just read or the super cool movie trailer you just watched. There's just no physical venue wherein one can discuss comic book related things. 

Recently, I got a text from Chef Edward Bugia of PINO Restaurant and he said that Mr. Rick Olivares wanted to discuss a project. It was about comics. So I said I was game. We met up in Katipunan Avenue since that was the middle point for us. Sir Rick wanted to do a Comic Book Podcast. No one was doing it religiously and he said we should do a podcast on all things related to the world of comic books. 

Rick Olivares, Ed Bugia, and yours truly

I was sold! I'm more free these days and I thought it would be a good to do something fresh and new. LEVEL 7! That's the name of the show. This is a S.H.I.E.L.D. reference and basically it's somewhat welcoming you to a level that has clearance and access to all classified information. So I'm quite proud that we finished recording our Pilot episode of Level 7. We really enjoyed doing this and we hope to do this on a weekly basis! 

Please do check it out and tell us what you think! Tweet us up at @jiggycruz, @rickyolivares, and @chefedward

What is the right thing to do?

I sometimes question myself if I'm just too nice. It comes to a point wherein I ask if I'm just too stupid to see the reality or if I'm being a martyr. Do I see that others may be taking me for granted? Do I feel like I'm unappreciated? Do I sometimes sense that what I do will gain me nothing? I actually do feel those often. 

I've been praying a lot recently. I've been praying for guidance. It's been a roller coaster ride this year. A lot of ups and downs. 

At the end of the day, to be the gentleman, to be the nice guy, and to be someone that will do what's right are the things I was raised to do. That's who I am and I cannot let someone change that. I do what I do because I feel it's what's right. 

My Lola always said that if you think it's right and you know it's right, you fight for it no matter what the odds. Even if everyone is against you.
