Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Got myself some Manny Pacquiao stamps

Picked up these Manny Pacquiao commemorative stamps at the post office yesterday. There are two versions -- the smaller one that costs P10 each but sells by a whole sheet for P400 and this larger one that fetches for P40. 

I haven't collected stamps since I was a kid because of my grandfather who got me got me into that hobby. I cannot remember when I stopped collecting or even what happened to that collection. But when I got this pair of stamps, I thought of him. And I smiled. Signposts.
