Waiting for Iron Maiden’s New Album: “Senjutsu”

Iron Maiden’s seventeenth studio album, “Senjutsu” (Japanese: 戦術) is scheduled for release worldwide on September3, 2021. Two songs off the album, “The Writing on the Wall” and “Stratego”, were released as singles ahead of the a release date.

As fan of Iron Maiden, I couldn’t wait to hear the album. Luckily, thanks to something called “digital music”, I would be able to listen to them on the eve of the release date. I had also preordered the physical album which is scheduled for delivery a bit later than September 3.

April 1, 2021: Well played, Jack in the Box!

Jack in the Box pulled an elaborate prank for April Fools this year. On March 30, 2021 Jack in The box announced that they would be taking “Sourdough Jack®” off their menu.

Comes April 1, they revealed that it was an April Fools prank.

They are giving away Sourdough Jack® for April 1 through Jack in the Box App.

Well played, Jack in the Box!

In no way this is an advertisement. We think that Jack in the Box did an elaborate April Fools prank that deserves some mentions.

March 2021 is almost done.

COVID-19 Vaccination Card

Captain’s log, Star-date… oh wait a second there. This is not Star Trek.

Where have the month go? Today is March 31, 2021 where I type this entry. In most part of the world, it is already April 1, 2021.

April 1 as in April Fools Day?


Caps Lock is now off.

March 2021 marks 1 year of COVID-19 era, as most of the world shut down in March 2020. There are lights at the end of this tunnel, we think. More and more people I know have received their first dose of COVID-19 vaccines. Even my Mom got hers first dose in March 2021 and scheduled to get the second dose 4 weeks after that.

Where I am, most people are eligible for vaccination starting April 15, 2021. I have an appointment for vaccination on that day.

Which vaccine am I getting?

It doesn’t matter to me if I get the Pfizer, Moderna or Johnson & Johnson vaccine. I believe that vaccination will help us getting back to some sense of the days before COVID-19 era.

Anyway, what else is going on?

Congratulation to my good friends Jill-Michele Meleán and Carlos Alazraqui on the release of their movie: Witness Infection. I’ve downloaded it via iTunes Store. Jilly and Carlos wrote the script and with the help from friends such as Tara Strong and Maurice LaMarche, the movie is now available for our viewing pleasure. Don’t ask me how the movie is because I’m definitely have personal bias. Support independent film makers.

OK, I’m kinda distracted right now, so I might add something here later. For now I’m going to press “Publish” button.

P.S. New Helloween song “Skyfall” is coming on April 2, 2021.

New self-titled Halloween album drops on June 18, 2021. I’ve preordered the single and the album.
