He's a self-proclaimed ex-philosopher, ex-poet, ex-political activist and ex-chess expert. If Michael Jackson, who is starting to look like American Idol's Paula Abdul, can call himself the "King of Pop", then Rusty is also entitled to be known as a king, the king of his devoted fans club (I humbly admit that the fans club membership albeit steadily growing is still less than the number of Elvis impersonators in Japan). If Victor Wood is the former "Jukebox King" (I lost track of the reigning titlist today), then Rusty is the Karaoke King of Escondido, California, the place where he was last reported residing. He likes traveling and socializing with friends. He now enjoys the good life and, sometimes, the wild life.
Sometimes he cannot decide whether to talk in the third person or first person when describing himself. What do psychologists think about this? I dunno. But, that's it, I think Rusty's unpredictable. CAUTION: You swear you're a mature enough to continue reading this secret FAQ site.
What Rusty is definitely NOT:
Rusty's not a superhero. He can't protect you from criminals or your mother-in-law or your creditors. Hey, remember to tip the waiter.
Rusty's never been in jail, unlike Scott Peterson and David Westerfield. Rusty's never been caught driving while intoxicated, unlike Nick Nolte and Mel Gibson. Rusty's never been caught shoplifting, unlike Winona Ryder. Hey, remember these people? Do you read the news? Quit playing poker or tong-its.
Rusty's not going to lend you money even if you tell him that he's goodlooking, lovable and kind. But he likes to hear those words.
Rusty's not as talented as Michael Jordan nor Lebron James; nor Tiger Woods, nor Apolo Ono, otherwise;he'll not waste his time with this (stupid?) website. He'll just play basketball or golf or skate and get paid at the same time.
Rusty's not a candidate for office in this coming elections. Should he seek a second-term as president of his devoted fans club? Send him money.
Rusty's not a nominee for the Nobel prize. Don't you think that this gives more deserving people like Al Gore a better chance?
Rusty's never posed naked in Playgirl magazine. It's not clear if the magazine would make an offer. Maybe not until the tabloids link him to celebrity women.
Rusty does not do drugs. Yet, he drinks alcohol but seldom to excess.
Rusty did not star in any major Hollywood blockbuster movie. But he's got plenty of pictures in this website to keep you busy or until you get sick and tired.
Rusty is not one in a million. Not just that! HE IS one in 3 million. If you're reading this site to check him out, then find out here if he's your perfect male.
visit here to know more details about this shy guy called Rusty. Or, you could all go back to news stories about Britney Spears and what she is wearing or not wearing.
If I tell you that I'm married, would you believe it? Is Jon Bonjovi or Keanu Reeves married? Is Spider-man or Osama Bin Laden married? Does it matter? Does the sun rise from the East?
Do you think that I'll lose some of my fans if they discover that I'm not available? Would they be more interested if I'm someone like Tom Cruise (divorced and re-married), Ben Affleck (married and devoted), Brad Pitt (foster/adoptive dad), Bruce Willis (separated), Johnny Depp (10 years with live-in), Hugh Grant (single), Russell Crowe (what's his status now?), Rico Yan (already dead but never forgotten), Heath Ledger (dead and overdosed), Dingdong Avanzado (between rufa mae quinto, jessa zaragosa), Dingdong Dantes (between Karylle and Marian Rivera), Tom Brady (almost perfect NFL season)? Sure, who cares?
In other words, is he goodlooking? Is this Rusty? Sorry to disappoint you, but it's not me. What did you expect? Did I break your heart? Or, are you happy it's not me? Honestly, Rusty does not look like this picture here. <-- click it if you dare!
Image from a remote site - Anyone can add images that are hosted on sites other than my websites and weblogs. (Please note: this process, called "external linking". If this doesn't work, it may be because the remote site prohibits external linking.) Did you get it? I am not sure myself what it means, so just read the next items. BTW, If you're curious, here is the perfect male.
Image from Rusty's computer - It is not widely known that he has started storing his pictures in his hard drive. He has a lot of pictures in his old home computer. But, you need to get to his house first.
Image already uploaded - You may check this picture site or this one. (Note: Minors must first get their parent's or guardian's consent and old people should obtain their doctor's permission; otherwise you are allowed to look at this highly classified collection of priceless photos if you wear bigger than size 6 shoes or are taller than your mom's shoulder when she's standing and not sitting on the sofa.) Here is another picture site.
More pictures - You gotta smile now before looking at the pictures here.
Should every rocket scientist have a personal website? Should every teen have a MySpace or Friendster site? Is that the fad these days? Does it make you look cool to be able to exchange cell phone numbers, digital pics, email addresses and websites?
Okay, okay... I used to be so impressed with people with personal web sites and blogs. Well, not anymore. I'm glad that I stumbled into a blogging site and learned how to get started with my own blogsite in only 15 minutes. Yes, that is how easy to get going with a blog of your own. And then, I transitioned to my own web site by using the super-tool "cut-and-paste" that a lot of original artists and brilliant minds hate but that is another story, anybody can do wonderful things in a very short time.
You don't need to be an internet techie. Java programming or Dreamweaver? Forget it! Unless you're into more serious stuff. Hey, this is not costing me anything. It's free! Maybe for the moment. But so far, I have spent maybe 36 hours (total time on the task of starting different variations of my website).
Okay, okay... First, it was curiosity that compelled him to check if he can "do what the Romans do". Second, family and friends can share pictures and personal moments with him, and I am talking real personal stuff. Then, I got impressed with Ate Sienna's Pansitan.com site, which compelled me to be a copycat. And, it would be a long time before I learn enough to produce my second edition. (Sob!)
I work on this project mostly on my free time, and I enjoy receiving emails of support, postcards from around the world from peoples like this (why not?)
What now? Well, Rusty cannot just be talking about himself in an internet site. He wouldn't want the casual visitor to suspect that he's vain. So, after introspecting for a long, long, long while, here's the "official" reason: pride of the old country and Philippine Stuff/,visit this site. Of course,tayo'y pinoy".
Golf and weightlifting, absolutely! Wait a minute, I misspelled "gulp", you know, the sound I make while drinking Tequila, San Miguel or Jack Daniels straight, bottoms up, gulp, gulp, gulp! Also, chug-a-lugging or binge-drinking beer with my buddies would be like pumping iron, good exercise!
At home: I mow the lawn and do the laundry. Domestic maids are expensive, and I would rather spend the money on golf and weightlifting.
At work: Pretend he is a scientist doing excellent work for the boss, and succeeding most of the time with impeccable luck. Hey, I still have a job amidst all the layoffs going on in this economic downturn. My vain soul would like to think it was because I was better looking, er performing, than those let go.
A job that I like: I know someone who does not worry about stress at the workplace. I really envy this person. Click here to meet him.
Seriously, visit here to know more details about Rusty's job. And quit daydreaming about how you're going to spend your tax rebate. Or, continue checking that New York magazine's nude shoot with Lindsay Lohan, which generated so much web traffic, it crashed the website. But how much traffic is that, really? For starters, more than 20 million page views on just 2 days of her slideshow here.
Who does Rusty like better - Jessica Alba or Jessica Simpson?
Natalie Portman or Kate Hudson? Cristina Ricci or Reese Witherspoon? Lindsay Lohan or Hillary Huff? Britney Spears or Christina Aguilera? Jennifer Lopez or Jennifer Aniston? Beyonce Knowles or Rihanna? Miley Cyrus or Hannah Montana? Don't they look the same? What's going on? Shouldn't the question now be "Is Avril Lavigne sexier than Fergie?" Gilmore Girls or Charmed? Backstreet Boys or N'Sync? Westlife or Boyzone? Vilma Santos or Nora Aunor? JudyAnn Santos or Jolina Magdangal? Former American Idol III finalist Jasmine Trias or Camille Velasco? Movie actress Nicole Kidman or Naomi Watts even though they look the same?
Who has a better voice, Nelly Furtado or Fergie? But, for first-rate vocal pipes, here’s my Top Seven: Celine Dion, Christina Aguilera, Mariah Carey, Kelly Clarkson, Whitney Houston, Charice Pempengco, and Norah Jones. And the toughest choice: Luningning or Milagring?
It's not really liking one over the other, but a matter of preference. Most of the time, Rusty likes both.
Preferences? I use mayonnaise more than ketchup. I like seafood better than steak, coke instead of pepsi, gin kesa rum, beer over wine, hito kesa bangus, french vanilla icecream rather than chocolate fudge flavor, avocado kesa mansanas, mangga kesa ubas, chess kesa tong-its, football better than basketball, gambling with stock rather than in the casino although Rusty always goes to different casinos ...
On preferences, Kung Hei Fat Choi or Kiong Hee Huat Tsai or Gong Xi Fa Cai greetings in Cantonese, Fujian and Mandarin refer to the same set of four Chinese characters that means "Wishing you prosperity", which was observed recently by over a billion people on Earth. Yes, it doesn’t even literally mean "happy new year".
The ugly terrier-mix dog ran away. Went under the fence, to find its true love maybe, but we kept the "beware of dog" window sign as a memorial token.
We started a small pond in the backyard, complete with a fountain, water fall, water lilies, tropical foliage, electric lights and torches and 30 goldfish of different varieties and colors. Ten of the fish had died , due to varied reasons like temperature or chlorine shock when we change the water, starvation - hey, we have things to do like vacation and we're new fish owners - and there are plenty of lizards and birds around. Its delighful to know that the fish could be trained to eat leftover rice every other day. I guess they have no choice or go hungry like some poor people in this dog-eat-dog planet.
At present, the University of the Philippines System is composed of seven Autonomous Universities located in over 10 campuses around the country. U.P. Diliman is the flagship campus of the university and specializes in liberal arts, law, engineering, social sciences, natural sciences, business and economics, and fine arts. U.P. Manila is geared toward medicine and operates the Philippine General Hospital (PGH). U.P. Los Baños specializes in biotechnology, agriculture, and forestry, while U.P. Visayas concentrates mostly on fisheries. The U.P. Open University provides open and distance education.
As for sporting events, the University of the Philippines is represented by U.P. Diliman in the University Athletics Association of the Philippines while U.P. Los Baños sends athletes to the Region 4 assembly of the State Colleges and Universities Athletics Association which is now known as the Philippine Association of State Universities and Colleges.
Counting his money? Looking at pictures of the girls he loved before? (pics) Yes, I got eyes for the opposite sex, but what I meant was my mother, my nieces, my aunts, my sisters (did you know that I am the only son among 8 siblings?).
Helping his poor friends (picture) - curious to see them?
Rusty might spend time surfing the internet occasionally about serious issues regarding world hunger, ozone layer and peace among nations. Do you think that Rusty is also wasting his time about common mundane stuff like the following items?
Ordinary sites that contain: Angelina Jolie Jessica Alba Christina Aguilera Scarlett Johansson Lindsay Lohan Hilary Duff FHM Maxim Paris Hilton(thank god) Jennifer Aniston legs cleavage WWE WWF WCW ECW TNA Stacey Keibler Trish Stratus Divas Torrie Wilson Tara Reid (again, thank god) hj bj fj sluts whores prostitutes common street trash pussy snapper anime (thank GOD) lame anime music video or AMV MTV (what a relief) lame pop music r&b crap rap crap emo crap stupid clothing Natalie Portman pink hair Rachel Weisz Eva Green areola bush slip Sharon Stone Elizabeth Shannon Katie Holmes (hey, she's not hot anymore anyway) Kate Winslet Reese Witherspoon Denise Richards Neve Campbell Milla Jovovich Heather Graham Uma Thurman Diane Lane Jessica Simpson or her sweet ass xxx tits babes boobs ass hot sex tape hot secks Charlize Theron Jenna Haze Briana Banks Pamela Anderson Jenna Jameson vH1 reality tv survivor apprentice big brother american idol (whew, thank god) juggies chicks girls girls girls britney spears or her scarred vagina elisha cuthbert drew barrymore elizabeth hurley jessica biel jennifer love hewitt jennifer lopez or her fat ass julia roberts keeley hazell keira knightley lauren holly victoria's secret bikini thong panties bra lingere eva longoria show episode

Sikat ang Pinoy
- Toni Gonzaga and Sam Milby perform "Sikat ang Pinoy!" -- the PBB Celebrity Edition theme song -- as the closing number of the PBB CE's Grand Launch Party at Baywalk, Roxas Blvd. Aired Feb 5, 2006.

To tell you the truth, I don't cook for other people. I can do simple stuff like fried rice and scrambled egg but I'd rather let the experts do the cooking. So, I'll eat anything - fruit and vegetables, sea food, pork, chicken, beef, lamb, goat, etc. - anything that walks, crawls, flies, swims if prepared well and cooked deliciously.
In a restaurant, I almost always order steak and lobster, or fish and chips, or tapsilog. Or, I'd go for the most expensive menu item that I can afford and have not tried yet. Like that wicked Boracay banana split below, wow, yummy!
Here are some examples of food I'd like:
and more Pinoy food such as ginataang hipon, lumpiang sariwa, pancit canton, daing bangus, pistang tuyo, chicken curry, lumpiang frito, pancit bihon, bikol express, kare kare, sinigang bangus, halo halo, buko salad, flavored nata de coco, halayang ube, pichi pichi

Net worth: At least one and a half million dollars, attained in the last 6 years through stocks dealings and the housing market. But, that was my dream as a little boy. Now, that amount is not much in Southern California. I have almost the same life style as most working professionals who are deeply in debt but still enjoying the good life. But, these days maybe I am down to just one million dollars because of the economy - bad housing market and stocks going down in 2008 from last year. Let's hope that thing will get better...
Millionaire mania: $1 million: What's our infatuation with this number? Call it millionaire mania, the get-rich-quick syndrome gone wild, achieving the status of te rich and famous. What's with our obsession with bagging that magic $1 million? Ever since money became our mantra, dreamers and schemers have fixated on a million bucks as their most-prized jackpot. If you land that elusive fortune, or even come close, you've truly made it.
"In the 1950s and 1960s, having a good job and owning a home was the American Dream. Now, being a millionaire is the new status symbol. It means you've arrived." which was the conventional wisdom.
One can earn a million in TV shows like Deal or No Deal, America's Got Talent, or the Philippine favorite show - Wowowee's "Pera o Bayong"
WWYD?: Here's my dilemma: I still cannot afford to spend like some multi-millionaires and indulge in conspicuous consumption. But I have some extra money to spend. What would you do? Right now, I can get at least $400,000 of pure profit from stocks and another $100,000 from several bank accounts but how will I use the money? At my lifestyle level, I am already comfortable and satisfied. I do not need any more clothes, car, jewelry, electronic toys, house furnishings or real estate property. I have seen most U.S. cities and tourist attractions in Europe. The little money I have will not be enough to quit my job and travel the world. In order to upgrade my social status, a few hundred thousand dollars will not be sufficient to maintain the good life for an extended period. I would need millions of dollars, which I do not have available now, to live like a rich man. It's still a dream.
My little nieces and nephews get impressed when I take them in my Jaguar or Mercedes and I buy them chocolate candies at the corner store. Out of pocket cost? Only $5.00; but the joy in the kids' smiling faces? Priceless!
New dream: Fifty million. $50,000,000. And of course, no time limit. Is this attainable by buying $5 lotto tickets each month? Go to Las Vegas or maybe start a business?
What does it mean? Without great friends, co-workers and family, all the money in the world means nothing. With money comes new cars, new homes, new lifestyles or possibly greed for more money. To my mind, and to my heart, it just means more confidence and more comfort in life. If you're constantly battling poverty and you're consistently in poor health, then you'll be unhappy. Money won't buy you happiness, but it surely helps in attaining happiness. For those things that money can buy, click here.
If you want to know the politician I found interesting in the last election, then click here, or else here for whatever reason or another opinion.
Consider the portraits that Republicans and Democrats paint of each other. They explain much of the loathing in our politics.
Democrats see Republicans as a collection of pampered rich people who selfishly seek to cut their own taxes, joined in alliance with religious fundamentalists who want to use government power to impose a narrow brand of Christianity on everyone else.
Republicans see Democrats as godless, overeducated elitists who sip lattes as they look down their noses at the moral values of “real Americans” in “the heartland” and ally themselves with “special interest groups” who benefit from “big government.”
Notice that each side is waging a class war in condemning the other as nauseatingly privileged. Yes, these are both parodies. But parodies are weapons in political battles, so it's important to assess the relative truth of each side's claims.
Begin by dismissing the claim that the economically privileged have become Democrats. In the 2004 election, according to the main media exit poll, President Bush won 63 percent of the votes cast by Americans in households earning over $200,000 a year, and 57 percent from those in the $100,000 to $200,000 range. All things being equal, wealthier people vote Republican.
But conservatives counter that Democrats are the party of choice in swank, well-educated latte enclaves: suburban Boston, New York and Philadelphia; Montgomery County, Md.; Microsoftland around Seattle; Silicon Valley; and Hollywood. John Kerry's-Barack Obama's-Hillary Clinton's blue states are, on the whole, richer than George Bush's-John McCain's-Mike Huckabee's red states.
IQ=152. It's not too intelligent by mensa standard but good enough for one ex-girlfriend's mom who worked as a school guidance counselor and insisted on giving IQ tests to her daughter's suitors, but that's another story. Rusty will write about it when he retires or, heaven forbids, if he goes to prison.
What else do you need to know? There are many questions about different topics like love, money, politics or religion. For example, famous people from William Shakespeare to the Dixie Chicks want to know universal truths like why men are happier than women or why men usually die before women.
WHY MEN ARE HAPPIER THAN WOMEN
Why Men Are Happier Than Women!
1. We keep our last name.
2. The garage is all ours. Same with the barbecue grill.
3. Wedding plans take care of themselves.
4. Chocolate is just another snack.
5. We can be president.
6. We can wear a white T-shirt to a water park. Who cares if we get wet.
7. Car mechanics tell us the truth.
8. The world is our urinal.
9. We never have to drive to another gas station because this one's just too icky.
10. Same work, more pay.
11. Wrinkles add character.
12. Wedding dress - $5000; tux rental - $100.
13. People never stare at our chest when we're talking to them.
14. The occasional well-rendered belch or burp is practically expected.
15. New shoes don't cut, blister, or mangle our feet.
16. One mood, ALL the time.
17. Phone conversations are over in 30 seconds flat.
18. We know stuff about tanks. Same with electrical appliances.
19. A five-day vacation requires only one suitcase.
20. We can open all our own jars.
21. We get extra credit for the slightest act of thoughtfulness.
22. If someone forgets to invite us, he or she can still be our friend.
23. Our underwear is $8.95 for a three-pack.
24. Everything on our face stays its original color. No cosmetics budget!
25. Three pairs of shoes are more than enough.
26. We don't have to stop and think of which way to turn a nut on a bolt.
27. We almost never have strap problems in public
28. We are unable to see wrinkles in our clothes.
29. The same hair style lasts for years, maybe decades. A haircut costs $10 - $20. Not $60+.
30. We don't have to shave below our neck. Who cares about legs, armpits or groin?
31. Our belly usually hides our big hips.
32. One wallet and one pair of shoes, one color, all seasons. Money in your pocket!
33. We can "do" our nails with a pocket-knife.
34. We have freedom of choice concerning growing a mustache.
35. Perverts! They don't frighten us, because we can be one!
36. Health! Will never get postnatal depression, nor PMT, nor PMS.
37. We can do Christmas shopping for 25 relatives, on December 24, in 45 minutes.
If your question isn’t answered here, please take a look at my future, still under-construction detailed FAQ's. And, I like to acknowledge Ate Sienna's and Batman's sites for inspiring me to indulge in this FAQ stuff.
