“Hindi madaling makalimot. May mga masasakit na nangyari. Ang pinakamalaking nawala sa akin: ang pangalan ko.”— Senator Manny Villar on the 2010 Presidential Elections, in an interview with Karen Davila on ANC Headstart, 20 March 2012
They say they are “Grown Up,” like the title of their latest disc. They constantly reassess themselves in a strikingly carefree, frank and joyful manner, only possible in the blossom of one’s youth. They have a five-year career, though, “veterans” by this fast industry’s standards. They have built multinational stardom on a string of No. 1 hits and drama appearances.
But, as all members only just graduated from high school, they say they are still hungry for growth. They attribute this to their curiosity, musical and personal. (READ MORE)
SAN FRANCISCO - Apple’s new iPad uses chips made by Qualcomm, Broadcom , Samsung Electronics and other semiconductor makers, according to a firm that cracked open one of the devices.
The newest iPad went on sale in Australia early on Friday, and at the front of a line of fans hoping to get hold of the 4G-ready tablet computer was a tinkerer from California gadget-repair firm iFixit, who quickly took one apart for a Web blog. (READ MORE)
What do I do with Jessica Sanchez? First, she just has to sing my musical pet peeve. Then she forces me to eat humble pie.
When people aren’t butchering it, “I Will Always Love You” is a song of haunting beauty. Yes, it’s the mother of all musical clichés. But clichés are born when someone plumbs a universal truth and then distills this into an expression so recognizable, so undisputable, that the rest of us simply adopt it.
Most wannabes shriek when they do a Houston. Jessica is not Whitney. (READ MORE)
“I’m the accidental musician. I never thought I’ll be in music. I thought I was just passing through then I’d grow up and find something else.”—Musician Bamboo, on ANC Headstart with Karen Davila (March 9, 2012)
Dalawang estudyanteng magkaaway ang pinag-boxing diumano ng isang guro sa Marikina. Nakunan pa ito sa video na ipinadala ng ating Bayan Patroller. - Nagpa-Patrol, Sol Aragones. TV Patrol, Marso 6, 2012, Martes
Bumilib tayo sa kabayanihang ipinakita ni Kabang, ang asong sumagip sa dalawang bata sa Zamboanga City. Pero kinailangang isakripisyo nito ang sarili at masira ang kanyang mukha. Ngayong siya naman ang nangangailangan para magamot, isang malaking organisasyon ng mga dog owners ang nangako ng suporta para sa kanya. TV Patrol, Pebrero 22, 2012, Miyerkules
Hindi matatawaran ang galing ng mga Pinoy sa paggawa ng pelikula. Iyon nga lang dahil sa kawalan ng maayos na film preservation sa bansa, karamihan sa mga antigong pelikulang Pinoy ang nasira na. Bandila, Pebrero 21, 2012, Martes
"Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such these." - Matthew 19:14
If children have trump cards to God, then people should listen closely to what they are saying. Theirs are simple pleasures like a house or a time for play. But in a region beset by violence and economic stagnation how else can one picture a Mindanao that has all of God’s blessings?
Or maybe it has? Maybe we should listen, and listen carefully to the children.
“Napanood niyo ba ang ‘Lord of the Rings’? Hindi ko sasabihin kung sino. Whenever I see him napapasabi ako na ‘Your presence in this impeachment trial is very precious,’” sabi ni Santos sa kanyang panggagaya kay Defense lawyer Serafin Cuevas.
MANILA, Philippines – “You’re A Good Man, Charlie Brown” has the sentimental charm of a school play but the fairly new theater group 9 Works Theatrical also proved that this 1967 musical can also be enjoyed by adults with honest and well-calibrated direction.
The musical, featuring the well-loved “Peanuts” gang of cartoonist Charles Schulz, is devoid of the usual stage magic most theater-goers are familiar with. There isn’t even a plot but a series of vignettes (some of them can even fit a four-panel comic strip) and song-and-dance numbers presenting a slice of life in a day of Charlie Brown and his pals.
