Get Paid with Pay-Per-Play Media!

Pay-Per-Play Media Graphic

I was browsing the web on Internet audio advertising when I came across this interesting website - NetAudioAds Pay-Per-Play (PPP). PPP touts itself as an online media channel that plays five-second audio advertisements on websites that put the PPP code on their web pages. What is interesting is that the audio ads can only heard on web pages where the website owner has placed PPP code. Wait, there’s more! The PPP audio ads are contextually associated with the text content of any web page where the PPP code is placed!

The PPP audio advertisement is only 5 seconds in length and a website visitor will only hear one 5 (five) second ad per visit to any specific web page where the code has been inserted. The audio advertisement is only heard and not seen and requires no action whatsoever from a visitor. The visitor will only hear one audio ad for every three minutes they visit if they have already heard an audio advertisement on another page of the same website. And as of December 29, 2007, the Pay-Per-Play network has grown to over 6 million websites! Wow! Talk about popularity among advertisers!

Pay-Per-Play Media Image

So what good is this for my site? Well, besides the fact that it never sends visitors away from my site, it gives me the opportunity to earn and continue to earn from every visitor! And with over 24,000 core affiliate partners responsible for signing on 9,000,000 websites producing over 1 billion 5 second audio ad plays per month, I guess it wouldn’t hurt to try PPP!

With PPP’s plans to officially launch on February 1, 2008, now is a good time to join the community and earn as an affiliate! How so? Well, each time one refers a new affiliate, that person will earn 5% of what advertisers spend on their website! You read right, 5 percent! And on top of that, one will also earn an additional 5% on those that direct referrals bring on board! Now, that is one sweet deal! PPP is definitely worth checking out! Log on to PPP’s website and hear examples of what websites visitors may hear! Read, hear, and decide! And browse the full training materials, too! If you think you got what it takes to earn from Internet audio advertising – then this is one website you surely don’t want to miss checking out! And I kid you not!

The Predator Air Case: Coolness!

Predator Air Case GraphicA Predator Air Case? Saw an online thread discussing about such a cue case, which will be done in a bigger size. Reputedly, the 2nd generation Predator pool cue case will not be an Instroke and could be available in April 2008.

The Predator Air Case features metals around the bottom and top, which could be engraved! It also appears that the cue case does not have a top handle. How about the space devoted to accessories? Looks alright? Option/s for a special order (case larger than a 2x4) remains in the dark, friends.

From the initial looks of things, I think the Predator Air Case is just ooozing with coolness! I want one! And I kid you not!

9-Ball Competition GraphicCongratulations to my very good friend, Edgar Boyet Asonto, Coach of the Philippine Billiards Team, for the successful January 2008 Coach's Tour! The 9-ball competition was held at the AMF-Puyat Superbowl, Makati Cinema Square, Makati City, home of the Makati Pool Players Association (MAPPA).

9-Ball Competition ImageFilipino pool player Eric Pedrosa, a proud member of the MAPPA, is First Runner Up in the January 2008 Coach's Tour. Eric Pedrosa, one of the most feared amateurs in his area in Cavite City, is a high-profile executive at Eastern Petroleum Inc. He received a very nice glass trophy and the Php4,000 cash prize. His weapon of choice is a custom cue from The AnitoKid. Pictured with Mr. Pedrosa are Coach Boyet Asonto and and my good friend, Carlito de Castro, aka Vice, incumbent MAPPA president.

Just like World Pool Champion Daryl Peach, aka The Dazzler, Alex Tucker is all about focus, discipline, and determination. His weapons of choice include an Adam jump cue, a Predator BK, and a DC playing cue. He plays once a week at the AMF-Puyat Superbowl for a minimum of 5 hours straight - and all by his lonesome!

The Ltd. Edition Brunswick Metro Cue from Brunswick Billiards

Brunswick Billiards Graphic

I played for six hours with my Limited Edition Brunswick Metro Cue at the AMF-Puyat Superbowl, Makati Cinema Square, Makati City, and wow! The very beautiful and very exclusive Limited Edition Brunswick Metro Cue by Predator sent by Brunswick Billiards was the cue of the day at the pool hall! Everyone who saw it complimented its looks, particularly how well the wrapless area and stainless steel butt cap with etched logos went well with the overall design of the cue!

Limited Edition Brunswick Metro Cue by Predator Graphic

The playabililty of the Ltd. Edition Brunswick Metro Cue is just as what you would expect of pool cues from Predator Cues – awesome! I did not have any difficulty with the wrapless Ltd. Edition Brunswick Metro pool cue. It actually felt nice gripping wood instead of the leather that I have been accustomed to. Balance is perfect too, and is comparable to that of my other Predator pool cues. The Ltd. Edition Brunswick Metro Cue came with a collarless 314 shaft, which is one of my all-time favorite shafts (even though it has been already been discontinued by Predator in lieu of the 314-2 and Z shafts). This is what made Predator a household name in the pool world – an advanced-technology shaft engineered to reduce cue ball deflection and improve accuracy and control. I never needed any adjustments on my play because I have been shooting with Predator cues for years now, with the Predator 2 being my favorite of the lot.

Limited Edition Brunswick Metro Cue by Predator Image

Rack after rack, set after set, I totally enjoyed playing that day using the Ltd. Edition Brunswick Metro Cue sent by Brunswick Billiards. The beautiful and exclusive Ltd. Edition Brunswick Metro cue handled well and feel was good. Had the guys try it, too! And everyone was all smiles and praises with it! Even the Coach of the Philippine Billiards Team, my good friend Edgar Boyet Asonto loved it! One Filipino pool player even offered $500 for it, which I politely declined. And oh! I successfully did a shut out run against a fellow pool player that day using the Ltd. Edition Brunswick Metro pool cue! No kidding!

Only 200 (numbered) Ltd. Edition Brunswick Metro Cue have been commissioned by Brunswick Billiards. Mine is number 171. Am I the first in the Philippines to have one? It’s possible. One of the firsts? Definitely! And I love it! And I kid you not!

Efren Reyes: King of the Billiard Hotshots!

Efren Bata Reyes Image

Here is very rare find on Filipino pool player Efren Bata Reyes, aka The Magician! "Efren Reyes: The Making of a Filipino Pocket Billiards Champion," by Yen Makabenta, was published in the February 10, 1983 issue of the Observer - the Sunday magazine of the Times Journal. It is an interesting and enjoyable read! And I kid you not! Much thanks to my online buddy, Cardinal Syn, for this great find! Maraming salamat kabayan!

From the magazine article:

"In the sometimes shadowy and long disorganized world of Philippine pocket billiards, finally an official champion is finally crowned and perhaps now the sport can develop and even prosper," Yen Makabenta. Yen Makabenta is now the President and Chairman of Raya Sports & Events, the Philippine organizing group of the 2007 World Pool Championship in Manila.
