Crazy for TFF

Posted on : 16-05-2010 | By : | In : me...myself and I...a super-ultimate FAN

I’m in a life draining, tumeteleserye mode stress breeding stuff lately that I’m supposed to move out but just couldn’t…somehow I manage to get through it…it’s not as if I had a choice…maybe things will somehow get better in a long run…I guess this is the stuff you have to live for…..you just have to go with the flow and everything else will follow…..I find it kind of funny that I really made a “karir”luwas for no apparent reason other than watching Tears for Fears concert….in a hush it was a well planned trip.…i couldn’t afford to stay in Taytay for another day as I have to be back home the next day and it was so timely that Labor Day holiday was moved on a Monday yey.. things have sometimes been working on my side this time.. well.. its not really all “lugmuk” akk all the time ….but wait…how can we possibly get inside the big dome if Topc wasn’t able to buy the tickets? It was all in the papers last week that the tickets were all sold out and there was this news that the organizers were contemplating on having a second night of this uber once in a blue moon event that has rocked Pinoy by storm. Oh well…bahala na si Batman all I can afford was to hope for the best and God will do the rest… so to speak….

Every generation has its own musical icons…it was…Cole..Como..Vale for Tatay… as it was Larry Miranda…Ruben Tagalog and Connie Francis for Cha Mami…as Paper Roses for Anene…and Beautiful Lilies for Amah…our form of major recreation then was focused mainly on listening over AM radio stations playing TOP 40 songs…with 101 songhits as the “ultimate must-have”…it was during Sundays where Casey Kasem’s taped countdown was aired..it was a breath of fresh air for me and my brother to get hooked with it to take a breather to a lot of senti love songs pretty much “lut-lut” ones like Ocean Deep…Almost Paradise…Knife…cuts like a knife…or Boulevard that dominated the airwaves which our contemporaries love to sing their hearts out…it was in this period when my brother and I had a chance to follow (not on twitter hehe) a DJ named Baby Michael at DWIZ who would later emerged as KAPUSO newscaster Mike Enriquez…The 1980’s was an era of great transformation in pop music..ushering in the so called new wave which exploded in the public consciousness and changed the tempo of pop music forever…one of the most popular among its breed of talents that dominated the decade was none other than Tears for Fears… which composed of the British rock duo of Roland Orzabal and Curt Smith….they have not only altered the face of pop music in general but came out strong as one of the biggest if not the best loved group of the post MTV era…and so its really a pleasant surprise for a TFF fan to find out that there’s some truth to the rumor that they were coming in the Pinas to stage a one night concert… I must say how my brother Eric has truly made a great influence in me to listen to the Hurting…TFFs first album where popular anthems Mad World…Pale Shelter..Suffer the Children and Change made it on top of the charts.. it was also in this time where I also get to listen to VITAMIN Z…walking out tonight.. in the streetlights I can see you…arm in arm with just another guy…you look at me and wave hello how friendly…I look at you and the cars go passing by….and Mister Mister…take this broken wings and learn to fly again…learn to live so free…when we hear the voices sing….

It was such a great trip for me on an early Sunday morning hoping that everything would turn out well despite the fact that Topc and I would all leave this thing to chance and a pocketful of hope within us…Late last night I have read in a news item in the inquirer.net that negotiation for the second night was not really possible since the only available date would fall on May 9…the night before the election…It took us barely an hour to get to Araneta Center thru Gateway and waited for some helluva eklabuz scalpers to offer us something that would miraculously get us inside…we’ve come across seeing some familiar faces…but not really worn out faces in fairness yey like the Jerk’s Chikoy Pura…….we’ve also spotted Phoem Barranda and PBB Teen Robi Domingo and a crew making their way to the red gate possibly for a TV patrol coverage and ASAP XV respectively.. it was like an eternity to stay with uncertainty believing that only God and nothing more would step up to help us get out of this misery… ticketnet was selling the SRO on lower box A worth 2,640.00… I have to trust my gut feel its been that reliable haha that in thirty minutes time….tickets on SRO upperbox B would soon be available in a jiffy…(spending out on a hard earned bucks can really be so masakit sa ulu and bulsa at the same time but sometimes we all have this guilty pleasure in all of us…aminin..….as in i can’t miss it for the world..…as this really would hold a great stuff as far as being a fan is concerned…you’re a part of something memorable that has been anticipated for so long and this is it)… lo and behold…..it truly did… wohooo!! i can’t believe it but I heaved a sigh of relief when Topc has finally handed me the precious tix that truly made our Sunday night a great one indeed….and for a second I truly believed that miracles do happen only if you have 101 patience tucked in your large belly yeyboy naman :)

Well it didn’t take that long for us to wait as the crowd was filling up to the rafters for super front act Sandwich and Pupil to perform their classic stuff….yeahbalu we made it just in time for the first ever song that hit like a bomb in me…it was soo nice to hear Raymund’s rendition of the Cure’s… Just like heaven….”you…soft and lonely…you lost and lonely just like heaven”…I wish they could also sing Friday I’m in Love…but it was a Sunday and seemed unfit to call it Sunday I’m in Love.. whaha corni…wow the crowd was singing and dancing at the same time the Ovation Prods must have really made wonders in putting Ely Buendia and Raymund Marasigan together to make TFF night a real blast from the past…I have to say that Sandwhich performance was more applauded than Pupils’.. the only song that made the audience sing their hearts out was when Ely sung Alapaap”…nonetheless it was great sa front act pa lang sulit naa yebaaa syoktong ni Mang Felimon whahaha

There was a thirty-minute lull before TFF made a great entrance onstage with MAD..mad world as opening salvo it was probably the loudest cheer that I have ever heard in my forty two years saga sans wedding ring..whaha…OA…but all this “kilabut”( na ganga tagihawat) aka goosebumps (para sounds sosi naman) was all over my body…the second song Everybody wants to Rule the world was even more louder than Mad World…everyone was singing which made everyone believe how this concert was turned into such a terrific, humungous and a real big “karaoke party”….i couldn’t hear any of Roland and Curt voices….they looked so great…aging but still in shape (after twenty six..twenty seven years).. sexy and gorgeous with a nice shoulders and probably less flabby abs… other numbers were not really that loud but nonetheless applauded as well. Pinoys were really a polite audience with nothing else in mind but to appreciate TFF’s presence to the hilt…I must admit that I didn’t understand any of Curt’s or Roland’s words to that effect it was only when I made “karir-halungkat” the TFF’s thread at PEX where I got a chance to see the transcript and the complete setlist made by one named Marc Miranda entitled “its a crime…thanks Marc!!

Mad World
Everybody Wants to Rule the World
Secret World
Closest Thing to Heaven
Sowing the Seeds of Love

Roland: Thank you and good evening. It is a thrill and an honor to be here in Manila with you. Thank you ever so much for coming tonight. We’ve been all around the world quite a few times. Across America, the plains of Siberia, the deserts of Scandinavia, and I don’t know why it has taken so long for us to go to Manila. It is a crime. I mean, our reception at the airport was great but this is amazing…”

Call Me Mellow

Curt: Thank you. Mabuhay! I believe that means ‘life’. What a beautiful turn out I have to say. Hi everyone at the top. Give me some love. There’ve been many versions done of this song Mad World. Some people have recorded it and we were of two minds of what version we should do. The kind of orchestral thing we do at the beginning was a little… And so we thought we should do the original? Does everyone agree?

Mad World
Memories Fade
Raoul and the King of Spain
Quiet Ones

Roland: Thank you very much. How are you doing? We’re going to do the newest song that Curt and I have recorded. You can dance up and down on this one. I know I will.

Floating Down the River

Curt: We’re gonna take it down for a couple of songs… I wanna say this: When we arrived here I never had so many messages on Twitter in my entire life …

Seven of Sundays
Billie Jean
Pale Shelter
Break it Down Again
Head Over Heals

: Thank you very much. Good night.

Band Exits.
Noise.
More Noise.

Roland: Youre amazing! Thank you so much. That is amazing. What a noise. I’d like to introduce the members of our band. On lead guitar, Charlton Pettus. On drums, the new boy, Jamie Wollam. On keyboards Doug Petty. And this guy… to my right…His name is Michael Wainright and he is about to shock you with what he can do. This is–

Woman in Chains
Shout

I cannot find the perfect words to say how happy I was for being a part of this wonderful event that has happened before my very eyes…Roland and Curt amazingly have connected perfectly with their audience…whew….obviously they were both touched with the audience reaction…they cannot imagine why it took them soo long to stage a concert here not knowing that they have such a fantastic crowd that they cannot just forget…I donna what to say hehe.. grabee…Mid…late thirties…to early and mid forties…ehem.. can justify all this madness…it really was fantastic in a sobrang major way…everyones got a nice voice singing in unison…yeah parang walang USOL :) …I soo love Break it down again…I cannot imagine that a trueblue fan can sing this to heart after all these years..…what an awesome crowd and yes…yes…i’m one of them…after Head Over Heels number…TFF has popped out leaving the crowd yelling to the max…it seemed that every available space in the big dome was taken up by a human body…the concert was on a half way mode and I can still see all those people coming in and why not.. right guys?!!…..its hard in a way to make an estimate but the big dome can hold up to 32,000 people but if you’re in the middle of this swirling sea of people who aren’t get tired of screaming to death…it was i guess not a purfect timing for Ms. Korina Sanchez-Roxas to flash the signature L sign…she was indeed booed ng bonggang-bongga…..people beside us had made such an effort to boo her when she was focused on the LCD screen during the lull when TFF has gone off for a brief rest before the much anticipated encore songs …OMG I cannot hear myself too.. when Woman in Chains…awww my ultimate TFF fave song was sung as an encore song the crowd was really that excited to find out who would take Oleta Adam’s place and to our surprise….Michael Wainright…the back-up singer did the part so well that you could wish to hear more of him….the crowd was yelling for more songs like Change…Advice for the Young at Heart and Mother’s Talk to name a few but it seemed like a goodbye alredy…when it became apparent that TFF wasn’t coming back anymore…all of us gushed what a night…still Tops and I can’t sit down as we were standing for like five long hours…and I can feel the “manhid and the sakit sa binti” taking over…there were dazed expressions from the audience like a bomb had gone off in our ears…and I can hardly hear anything…I get a little “karugkug” everytime I speak…my hands were red and its masakit already sa kakapalakpak ng walang hintu…I feel my foot was buried in my step-in…but underneath it all… it was really great….which made me believe… that God loves me and wants me to be happy…oo naman…booo…boooo…babaw… bwahahaha

feeling close to Kuya?!!

Sa bawat pagsubaybay natin sa PBB…ang teleserye ng totoong buhay ay tila baga isang exciting adventure, topsy-turvy, roller coaster ride sa walang katapusang pagsubok ni Kuya sa mga housemates, such a journey of real life drama unfolding into our very eyes, discovers reel life secrets and catching them in their most unguarded moments plus of course the budding romances and finding out the meaning of goodwill and sacrifice most especially for other people.

Maging tunay na challenge kaya sa nurse na si Cathy ang maging representative sa PBB Big Swap sa bansang Finland? Maging loveteam kaya sa totoong buhay sina Melisa at Jason aka Melason yey. Papasok din kaya sa showbiz si Paul Jake na lookalike ni Hayden Kho? Sisikat kaya si Hermes at magiging isang Bench Model paglabas ng bahay? May mga naghihintay bang offers sa Kapamilya kina Rica, Carol, Yuri, Mariel at Yhel sa showbiz? for sure may sisikat talaga sa kanila at siguro someday soon mapapanood natin si Tom sa ASAP 2010 o they will suffer some lackluster fate sa mga housemates na halos di na natin maalala na sila pala “once a upon a time” ay naging boarder din ni Kuya.

img972
di naman masyadong fan?…mayrun din ba kayong mags na ganito guys saka complete DVD set ng PBB 1 at Celebrity Edition na someday ay magiging isang precious collection.

Undoubtedly we learned a lot of things in this series who in one way or another has truly moved and touched our lives to the hilt. PBB is such a phenomenon..who are these housemates anyway? Well some few years/months back we would have run into Sam Milby – the PBB’s biggest star and with a heart-melting twang…“ayow kow” he went from an obscure “close-up toothpaste commercial model with Barbi to a national heartthrob practically overnight. Naks never ko talaga makalimutan na di talaga binoto si Sam ng madlang pipol na noo’y na nominate with Jayson Gainza dahil excited na ang lahat na siya ay lumabas dahil sa napakarami nyang offers at hukbo ng tagahanga sobrang bonggacious nga pag welcome sa kanya sa ASAP de baa?

img975

Well iba talaga si Big Bro for playing God with all its might…what Kuya wants? Kuya gets nga ba? At some point i beg to disagree..teka muna, mukha yatang may sabit dun…mejo sablay nga ba at kailangang i revised ang script ng mabigo si Keanna sa isang important task with Budoy of Jr Kilat during the PBB Celeb 1, naalala pa ba ninyo na nadisappoint ang madlang pipol ng hindi pahintulutan ni Pareng Budoy na ipasilip man lang kay Keanna kung ano ang nasa loob ng kanyang pudong…sabi pa nya sa isang napaka espesyal na tao lamang sa kanyang puso ang maari nyang payagang makakita ng kanyang hair. Well, it maybe interesting to some but not to other people…who cares ba…kung ayaw mo….di wag…well we all learned that everything na may konek sa kultura o paniniwala o values ng isang tao, we should at all times respect it. Its something sacred for Budoy na ni si Bigbro ay wala talaga nagawa on the other hand, bakit nga ba sumali si Budoy kung di talaga sya handa sa mga challenges ni Kuya?

But there is really an ultimate lesson in trust…an experience that test our faith and hope for every single day. I realized now that in my attempt to be overly lighthearted….there’s a tell tale giggle that I cannot just suppress especially when JR and Audrey’s love story is being talked about. You could give me an A for an effort but my stuff would always be 1.“madamdamin….2. madrama….and 3. heartfelt” what can i do if i’m born with it…such a certified uber to the max overboard that would pass a thing or two as a self-confessed KIMERALD diehard… they certainly have gone a long way since the first PBB Teen Edition where they were made to shine from day one until the big night!!

The Two of Us….TD to the max

kapwa lumuluha…kapwa nasasaktan….bakit tinitikis pa rin ang isa’t-isa lagi na lamang bang ganito ang buhay natin?

THE TWO OF US( TD to the max)
(sa mundong para lamang sa ISA hindi maaring TAYONG DALAWA)

powerhouse cast

powerhouse cast

In a world continuously bombarded with chaos, deceit, betrayal, crookedness, and tawdry sex scandals, it’s no wonder how everyone can get lured with the most popular teleserye to hit primetime bida. It’s no longer a big surprise how TAYONG DALAWA can spell a big difference to other teleseryes of the same genre…everybody’s talking about it…sooobbrraaa….everyone seems to get uber hooked….tadaaa.. it rules our primetime viewing experiences like no other…kaboom…drum roll with matching fireworks whaha

ang love triangle ng bayan

But ya know I’m often driven to hysteria when it comes to watching the hottest teleserye this side of the universe…I was feeling slightly iffy with what I’ve gotten into in my ever quest of doing fine in my work and getting stressed with it is quite inevitable….but watching TD every night took all those blues away in just a snap of a finger, kinda weird, a bit neurotic to be like this…hate it.. but…I thank BRO that hey I’m not alone in this..we’re in fact millions in this together…maybe it was just an obsession to be a “KIMERALD” from the very start and couldn’t let any single episode pass…oh well…towel…ka awel…

everythings going great for Kim and Gerald

The story revolves on two women from different world share a common love in the person of an American Navy officer named David Garcia. Marlene and Ingrid fell in love with the same man but there was no doubt in David’s heart that Ingrid is the one that he loves.

DSC-0623

Marlene fell in love with David ever since he helped her pay for her hospital bills when her son Ramon got sick. She was also prostitute who helped him sort through his feelings for his girlfriend, Ingrid. However, a night of indiscretion resulted to her pregnancy. Though it was clear that David had no intention of having a relationship with her, Marlene insisted to look for him in Manila to tell him about their baby. unbeknownst to her, David was already married to Ingrid by then. And the woman she talked to, at a grocery store where he supposedly lives, happens to be Ingrid’s mom, Elizabeth. Since then, Elizabeth had a private investigator look into Marlene’s background. It kept her updated about her pregnancy and the fact that she plans to give away her baby once it was born. As it was, Ingrid had a difficult pregnancy while Marlene was going to have twins at the time.

But it seems that everything went well for both of them even if one of Marlene’s twins died while she was in labor. Much later, the two simultaneously had their sons christened as David Garcia Jr. and happily moved on with their lives. Things may be hard for Marlene but she has her mom Rita aka Lola Gets to help her raise her sons Ramon and JR. Luckily, JR (her son with David) proved to be a smart kid whom she believes will get them out of poverty. While Dave (Ingrid and David’s son) grew up really insecure because David raised him with an iron hand even after he retired from the military. Nevertheless, the Garcias led a very privileged life because of Ingrid’s business acumen.

super galing na ta-artits si pipay

One time, Ingrid brought her family in Tagaytay to take a short vacation while she seals a deal with a hardware supplier (Stanley King) of their stores. Little did she know that this brings her closer with the woman from her husband’s past since Marlene and her family have relocated there a year after JR was born. In the meantime, she met with Stanley and his family to discuss business. Then the next day, they all decided to go sightseeing. Stanley’s daughter Audrey immediately run off, however, when he scolded her for always causing trouble.

Still hurt by her father’s scolding, Audrey was too lost in her thoughts that she suddenly got into an accident. Luckily, JR was around to save her from her fall. With the help of a security guard, Audrey was brought to a nearby clinic where she relayed what happened to her parents. Since she barely saw JR during her accident, she couldn’t identify her boy-savior apart from the fact that his name is David Garcia. As such, everyone assumed that it was Dave who saved her since the latter merely kept mum about it. So the next time JR bumped into Audrey at the church, he was surprised that she acted as if she has no idea who he is….

davids

The powerhouse cast has lived up to its expectation. Tayong Dalawa certainly gives a great impression because of the grand performance of the actors, aside from the fact that the plot and its originality is something that this teleserye can be proud of.

Jake Cuenca as Dave a.k.a. David Garcia Jr.—Born to a life of privilege, Dave is used to having it all, except for the love and approval of his family. He is a typical spoiled brat who has no real purpose in life until he falls in love with Audrey. What will he do once he learns that her heart also belongs to someone else?

Gerald Anderson as JR a.k.a. David Garcia Jr.—With his intellect and sheer determination to succeed, JR knows that he will one day achieve his dream of rescuing his family from a life of poverty. When love finally comes his way, however, will he choose to give it up for the sake of brotherhood and friendship?

tayongdalawa-90

Kim Chiu as Audrey—She has never experienced love or even the slightest bit of affection from her father and grandmother who have always been cruel to her. She will finally find love in not one, but two men both named David Garcia. Who between Dave and JR will truly win her heart?

tayongdalawa-13

Agot Isidro as Ingrid—She is the mother of Dave and the wife of David Garcia Sr. Because of her lonely childhood, she will try her best to create a perfect family of her own. Will she be able to deal with a long-buried secret that threatens to destroy her only chance of happiness?

Miguel Faustmann as David Garcia Sr.—He is an American soldier who is father to both David Garcias. Will a fleeting relationship with a woman from his past come back to haunt him just when he has achieved a high social status and an ideal family life?

Helen Gamboa as Elizabeth—She is ready to do whatever it takes just to protect Ingrid from further pain and disappointments in life. But she also knows that there will come a time when she can’t shelter her daughter anymore. How long will she be able to prevent the truth from coming out?

mamita

Cherry Pie Picache as Marlene—She was a prostitute when she first met David Garcia Sr. and fell head over heels in love with him. But their relationship was not meant to last. What will she when she must raise their child alone?

lola gets

Gina Pareño as Rita—Motherhood didn’t stop her from being a prostitute and worse yet, she forces her own daughter into the business when she gets too old to be in the sex trade. Will she be able to make up for her sins?

greta ever
Alessandra de Rossi as Greta—As JR’s childhood friend, they have a lot of things in common. She believes that it is only a matter of time before he accepts the fact that they are meant for each other. What if she finds out that JR has already found his one true love?

coco martin....don ramon

Coco Martin as Ramon—He is JR’s half-brother who often gets himself into all kinds of minor scrapes, until one huge mistake leaves him with no choice but to join a crime syndicate. Will envy and greed eventually turn him against his own family?

Mylene Dizon as Loretta—Even though she is a woman who has devoted all her time and effort to her family, her husband Stanley is still cruel to her. Will she ever learn how to fight for her rights?

Jiro Manio as Stan—As the heir to their family business, he is the only one who gets showered with affection by his dad, Stanley. Unfortunately, Stan doesn’t turn out the way his father wants him to be. Has he strayed from the right path or will he become worse off than his father? Or will his character get axed as the story gets complicated?

stanley king super great actor

Spanky Manikan as Stanley—Work always comes first for this ruthless Chinese businessman. For Stanley, his wife Loretta is only useful to bear him a son who will inherit the business someday. He also blames his daughter Audrey for all the misfortunes later experiences in life. Can he accept his daughter who desperately longs for his love?

ang galing talaga ng matandang instik na itu

Anita Linda as Lily—Possessing a mean streak that is worse than her son Stanley’s, Lily will make Audrey’s life a living hell. No one can contradict her wishes no matter how irrational they may be; She always gets the final say in the King household. Is there any goodness in her heart at all?

Baron Geisler as Leo—He is the head of the criminal organization that Ramon works for. With his power and political connections, Leo is practically invincible but will soon cut short by his death.

Jodi Sta Maria-Lacson – As Tita Angela, Loretta’s sister who is a shoulder to cry on for her niece Audrey, she came after her sister’s death to take care of Audrey, Stan and Baby Robert, she discovers the evidence that gives justice to JRs plight.

super favorite ping medina aka nicko

Ping Medina – As Nico Ramon’s right hand, he’s practically there to cover him up at all times….getting away from it all….but for how long?

The story is such a roller coaster ride filled with highs and lows… what with all those action scenes ala prisonbreak by JR who instantly became an action star and gets hotter by a day…JR Anderson errr Gerald became the country’s hottest heartthrob, his charmingly fractured Tagalog has remarkably improved giving him aces up in his sleeve. He’s got the world before him, truly ripe for a taking. Jake Cuenca for one is really a revelation in this series, finally i’m convinced he can act hehe…Kim Chiu is now hails as the primetime princess..she’s got it..i’m so affected..she’s on top of the hip her “anorexic” appeal is really more of an asset more than a liability haha…as i dash off i really think that i have to make a sequel with this post….namannn ever…

DSC01115

Indeed…TD has sustained the interest of the viewers from all walks of life. Anene for one isn’t used to staying this late but miraculously pulling it through without complains at all…The actors for one loved what they’re doing…i love Agot in her super maldita cum “uris-uris” demeanor…Cherry Pie Picache is sooo great that she essays the role to a T….read: purfect… Ms. Gina Pareño is so amazing bakit sobrang makaiyak talaga when she emotes…at bakit pag naubu sya saka nadahak parang may cancer talaga!!...Coco Martin the indie icon is one hell of a great actor…. of course there are times that a twist can be oh so dragging….such a negative stereotypes still persists….a viewer can be oh soo involved with a story….giving inputs on this and that aspect…we’re really so much into it….so we’ll always stick with it until it ends…team kapamilya kaya kami….yeyeye sisbumbaaaa…..karir talaga ang maging isang…..TD adik anu!...rock en roll
ang love triangle ng bayan yehey
more to come pramis…..more daw oh!!

One Day in Your Life (my very own tribute to MJ the King of Pop)

Michael Joseph Jackson was born on August 29, 1958, the seventh child of Joseph Walter Jackson and Katherine Esther Scruse. He made his debut as a young singer in 1964 as a member of the Jackson 5, he begun a solo career in 1971 that led him to be hailed as one and only King of POP, he became a dominant figure in American popular music and culture, his Thiller album remains the world’s best selling album of all time..beyond his success on recording industry, he popularized a number of physically super complicated dance technique popularly known as “moonwalk” with his elaborate stage performances his distinctive musical sound and vocal style influenced many hip hop, pop music and contemporary RnB across several generations. Gary V for one has evolved with MJ’s style at 44 years old can still move and groove like the King of Pop.

I can still recall how my brother Eric would sing his heart out ala Michael. His own rendition of the song BEN was great…he has gifted with a musicality that way too admirable in his age. Yeah it is true that many of us have been his fans for the longest time now and that our lives have one way or another have touched by his music and his magic.

Whew karir grabee..little did i know that i would in one day make a tribute to MJ who was a part of everyone’s life…back in the time of 45 rpm and long playing album (LP) read: plaka…helloooo di pa ito alam ng mga kids and cassette tapes yay…it was in this period when internet or even CDs was not even conceived yet…but life then albeit simple was so memorable and sweet….all we had that time was 101 songhits bought from Ka Nelia Duran’s store near the old public market at Angara Street… Eric’s inclination to music is truly impeccable from being a fan of Beatles & MJ… when he was still a toddler… to think that we at that time was deprived of TV and that our “jurassic REMS radio” can truly attest how we would at one point be inclined to music…do you know that we were super avid listeners of Kasey Casem’s top 40 aired at DWIZ….long before the evolution of MTV. We have lived our lives to our Tatay’s lullaby from Nat King Cole, Mat Monroe and Perry Como hits. How could one forget Michael when he was always there in our consciousness? How could one forget the song….”give love on christmas day”…matter of fact it was the only christmas song that i love to sing again and again and again….OA naaa….

people making list….buying special gifts…taking time…to be kind to one and all….hooo-hu-hooo…as a child…..you cannot complete it without making an emphasis to… hooo-hu-hooo

I also remember how my favorite sitcom “John and Marsha” which starred Dolphy and Nida Blanca adopted the song “Don’t Stop Till You Get Enough” for its theme song….’kaya John magsumikap…kaya magsumikap kaa”

here are my top fave MJ songs…..sooobraa…the music and his memories would definitely live forever in our deepest of hearts.

magsumikap kaa”

here are my top fave MJ songs…..sooobraa…the music and his memories would definitely live forever in our deepest of hearts.

“Ben”

Ben, the two of us need look no more
We both found what we were looking for
With a friend to call my own
I’ll never be alone
And you my friend will see
You’ve got a friend in me
(You’ve got a friend in me)

Ben, you’re always running here and there
(Here and there)
You feel you’re not wanted anywhere
(Anywhere)
If you ever look behind
And don’t like what you find
There’s something you should know
You’ve got a place to go
(You’ve got a place to go)

I used to say “I” and “me”
Now it’s “us”, now it’s “we”
I used to say “I” and “me”
Now it’s “us”, now it’s “we”

Ben, most people would turn you away
I don’t listen to a word they say
They don’t see you as I do
I wish they would try to
I’m sure they’d think again
If they had a friend like Ben
(A friend)
Like Ben
(Like Ben)
Like Ben

“One Day In Your Life”

One day in your life
You’ll remember a place
Someone touching your face
You’ll come back and you’ll look around, you’ll . . .

One day in your life
You’ll remember the love you found here
You’ll remember me somehow
Though you don’t need me now
I will stay in your heart
And when things fall apart
You’ll remember one day . . .

One day in your life
When you find that you’re always waiting
For a love we used to share
Just call my name, and I’ll be there

You’ll remember me somehow
Though you don’t need me now
I will stay in your heart
And when things fall apart
You’ll remember one day . . .

One day in your life
When you find that you’re always lonely
For a love we used to share
Just call my name, and I’ll be there

“Happy”

Sadness had been close as my next of kin
Then Happy came one day, chased my blues away
My life began when Happy smiled
Sweet, like candy to a child
Stay here and love me just a while
Let sadness see what Happy does
Let Happy be where Sadness was

Happy, that’s you
You made my life brand new
Lost as a little lam was I, till you came in
My life began when Happy smiled
Sweet, like candy to a child
Stay here and love me just a while
Let sadness see what Happy does
Let Happy be where Sadness was
(Till now)

Where have I been?
What lifetime was I in?
Suspended between time and space
Lonely until Happy came smiling up at me
Sadness had no choice but to flee
I said a prayer so silently
Let Sadness see what Happy does
Let Happy be where Sadness was
Till now

Happy, yeah yeah
Happy, oehoe happy

happy oh yeah HappyHuman Nature
[fade out]

Human Nature

1st verse
Looking out
Across the night-time
The city winks a sleepless eye
Hear her voice
Shake my window
Sweet seducing sighs
2nd verse
Get me out
Into the night-time
Four walls wont hold me tonight
If this town
Is just an apple
Then let me take a bite

Chorus
If they say -
Why, why, tell em that is human nature
Why, why, does he do me that way
If they say -
Why, why, tell em that is human nature
Why, why, does he do me that way

3rd verse
Reaching out
To touch a stranger
Electric eyes are evrywhere
See that girl
She knows Im watching
She likes the way I stare

Chorus
If they say -
Why, why, tell em that is human nature
Why, why, does he do me that way
If they say -
Why, why, tell em that is human nature
Why, why, does he do me that way
I like livin this way
I like lovin this way
(instrumental section)
4th verse
Looking out
Across the morning
The citys heart begins to beat
Reaching out
I touch her shoulder
Im dreaming of the street

Chorus
If they say -
Why, why, tell em that is human nature
Why, why, does he do me that way
If they say -
Why, why, tell em that is human nature
Why, why, does he do me that way
I like livin this way

For Once In My Life
It’s Gonna Feel Real Good,
Gonna Make A Difference
Gonna Make It Right . . .

As I, Turn Up The Collar On My
Favourite Winter Coat
This Wind Is Blowin’ My Mind
I See The Kids In The Street,
With Not Enough To Eat
Who Am I, To Be Blind?

Their Needs
A Summer’s Disregard,
A Broken Bottle Top

They Follow Each Other On
The Wind Ya’ Know

I’ve Been A Victim Of A Selfish
Kind Of Love
It’s Time That I Realize
That There Are Some With No
Home, Not A Nickel To Loan
Could It Be Really Me,
Pretending That They’re Not
Alone?

A Willow Deeply Scarred,
Somebody’s Broken Heart
And A Washed-Out Dream
(Washed-Out Dream)
They Follow The Pattern Of
The Wind, Ya’ See
Cause They Got No Place
To Be
That’s Why I’m Starting With
Me
(Starting With Me!)

ANGEL GLAMS…..SHINES AND SIZZLES as the new image model of FOLDED & HUNG

angel 1

lovely……dainty…fancy…these are the stuff that remind us of innocent time in our lives where delights came in a form of sweet candy wrapped in a colorful…glittering package, whoaa…girls can very much indulged in sweetest things of a fashionable variety as those must have jewelry and delightfully, quirky get-up but ANGEL LOCSIN’s latest endorsement took a notch bolder and sexier as the new image model of F&H…folded&hung (in addition with Claudine Barreto and Maja Salvador) which has brought the house down literally and figuratively at the Trinoma Activity Center held two Saturdays ago.

But before I go further… you guys have to congratulate me first and foremost (mang-impose… saka mag demand anu!!) for my first ever attempt of having some sort of a my fashion review of what could be the most talked about launch. Yeah i’m talking about the super TOPLESS poster’s so damn HOT…super HAWT…I maybe sounding like a dilapidated or just a pirated CD but ANGEL glams…shines and sizzles like no one else…allow me at this point to make a bit of a “kwento” of how things went so fine on a Saturday and super major “lugmok” the next day all because of FRANK….FRANK…FRANK…damn you frank… grrrrrrrr @#$#^%$ how could you be so damn cruel to do this to us? we haven’t done anything bad to anybody nor have committed any kind of mortal sins like adultery, murder, kidnapping yikes ngiii how morbid hakhak to deserve all these disappointments….lugmukis ever.

geometric prints never cease to amaze, circles, stripes splashes of colors give some outfits a modern charm.

My cousin and I took our precious time to go to Manila not for any other reason than this yeah it was maybe for a breather and that include going to Trinoma Mall for the very first time for angel’s F&H launch and of course the super most awaited LOBO farewell show at SM north edsa the following day….so since we traveled for like eight hours as we came from the other side of the planet, it really wasn’t easy for us to stay fresh, made up,dolled up and uber porma as any good natured city girls are…but we’re really so amaze to death to find out how people from all walks of life can be so fond of our ANGEL….super OA as you may call it but we went straight to trinoma mall as early as 1PM surprisingly the peeps were already patiently waiting at the activity center… to think that there was something like cocktails graced by a good number of entertainment press which went fine and dandy at 6 PM before the show proper which was done in a breeze….so fast that you wouldn’t wanna blink at all!!!i really cannot say anything….cuz i was so damn starstruck to the max….i was stunned in less than an hour. i couldn’t say anything in an instant….so mesmerized and deeply enthralled…i shouted i wouldn’t miss this for the world…of course i’m exaggerating….hehe

‘Twas really my first time to see ANGEL in a flesh….i can never imagine how Angel exudes a cool aura of sensuality the moment she came out on stage….i was screaming to the top of my lungs!!….she figures in the circle of talented young actresses in the industry….and when it comes to giving performances she definitely gives others a very tough fight…i always thought that her role as Lyka in LOBO have made such a great impact on her on being such a fashionista.…what with her perfect curves that made a lot of women green with envy.

But why it took me two weeks to post this thing is really a mystery and has a life on its own..well it maybe a little bit DR as in “delayed-reaction” on my part but nevertheless fulfilling and rewarding anyways… guys i wanna share with all of you some pics that i considered my most cherished possession of being a fan…fan…fan..

angel 3

Some kind of swift…energetic comfort caress which reveal sleek and relaxed sense of beauty and elegance….couldn’t say anything….so breathtaking!

Angel with Phoemela Barranda who hosted the event..The launched was so successful such a fleeting moment bursting with light and colors…swift and oh sooo chic….i just can’t shake it off that TITO PEX has this limit of posting only seven images, as i wanna pour it all in one post but there was no way for me to do so…wanna see more?

i’ve seen with my own eyes yeah!!! how angel can have these legion of fans from young and old alike…grabee...subra adulation talaga..one can see the mirage of weaving tales of a kaleidoscope of emotions igniting a never ending excitement….i will never forget this moment where OMIGOD…. so…ganito pala kaganda si ANGEL!! she’s just glowing, i was asked by a lot of people nax…feeling naman ako..whehe if Angel is just as gorgeous in person…my answer is so truthful as i wasn’t blinking nor batting an eyelash at all nax na naman, i told them in all honesty that she’s radiantly fabulous in a rock glam diva look and super stunning, she stands 5′5 plus her 4 or 5 inches stilletos, and gosh her SMILE, if you can feel its intensity and impact when you watch her on TV just imagine how mesmerizing she is up close. yay hayy naman sana kasing ganda nya tayong lahat anu?!!

Angel Locsin’s looked so fab in a runway…intense…playful and sauntered down the catwalk wowing the crowd… she was sooo humble when she said to Phoem na feeling model daw sha…model na model naman talaga dating nya super!!…..and the people has swept away by her beauty and grace…need i say more??

me…myself and the pudgies! i’m such a fan…fan..fan!!

I really don’t know where to start….hey, I dunno what’s come over me..maybe I’m just crazy freakin character in a popular soap who seems so lost in the wilderness…kinda weird huh? there must be something that’s got to be there in the woods…it’s outta here to get me anytime soon…slowly gripping little by little and putting me again into a bad light…it’s been countless times already where I myself have felt down and out…freaked out…totally wreaked, crushed and burned and yet how come we are still here? What on earth are we doin all our
lives to deserve this? I tell you guys no one in his right mind would love this thing, hate it so much…it’s like loving a person who can’t love you back….it’s pathetic…tsk…tsk… we hate to be losers forever right?

I’m lying if I say I’m okay with what’s happening at PBB..what with a phone call to a friend that truly ruined my day, it’s devastating to hear her say ILY to a friend….so what’s with the tears ba ha? I’m not fine….i’m upset….gee… its like comfortably lyin but unconsciously bleeding….softly sleeping but silently hurtin….continously breathin and yet slowly dying..is there anything in this world worse than this? Hey, whatta heck…I maybe uttering the same hyper stuff again…as I never thought I would cross this line again…ever… but as an old saying goes again and again promises are really made to be broken…I missed it
terribly… I said this many times over that I don’t wanna look back and
reminisce about all those memories of not letting go to “something that’s not even there in the first place” o my gosh…. I hate this statement…the nerve to say it…..BIANJOE’s actions in the house can speak so loud that you almost hear their heartbeats beating at the same time…how can one questions the existence of feelings….they were there so raw and definitely undeniable….it was when the
world stopped and fell in love… destiny is taking a spotlight… But things
changed when they gone separate ways…. Bianca kept saying otherwise in all her interviews left and right haleerr.. ….what can we do if she says it’s different inside the house….than the outside world..what can we do if she says black is red and black is white…does it really matter to you people if she says she doesn’t love Zanjo at all? Or she would gladly sacrifice everything she has not to hurt
her best friend Mariel who curse like a sailor…. whom she loves like a real sister? Ekkk…ekkk….eeeewwww!!

I don’t know why the PUDGIES has to go with this….why we have to suffer like a terrible loser… It’s more than a year and seven months of endless grief and despair..yeah, I’m sounding like a pirated cd now I promised myself not to post an EM anymore but what am I doing here ba? It’s exactly what I missed…forgive me…. I’ve been so normal, so quiet and so bored that I created a blog for the past months…and
then out of the blue I came out of my shell to burst like no other….for one I’m so glad that TitaO is there and appreciates what the pudgies did to BZ, I’m so touched with her message to me….i cried….super… and what a way to have known TatayZ…he’s such a sweet tatay….he calls me “anak” like his own…whoaa

Just as I thought that I’ve forgiven this girl….i realized I really can’t….i never will… I tried so hard to understand her that she’s human like anyone of us and wish that she would find her own smile…i’m rooting for Jon and M in the house but she’s really that messed up, attention seeker, and harassed to death…she’s making things worse than hell, true enough she’s digging her own grave…she really is a jerk and an anaconda for that matter… I feel that she’s not sincere enough to Bianca….she isn’t her real friend…their friendship is just a front…it
maybe unfair to say all these things, I admit I don’t know exactly how close they are… I maybe mean and so inconsiderate but Mariel’s is definitely not a girl we must respect and emulate.

Why do pudgies continue to shout still fighting until now? It hurts really if we didn’t get what we want or if simply things were not working on our favor… but it’s the essence of life….we have to understand everything that is happening, we are pressed on every side by a lot of disappointments…so this is the feeling of a true blue avid fan who have stick it out with their idols come hell or high water….now I know the feeling of being there and for you guys who in one way or
another has cross this line like I did and the rest who never get tired of
waiting and hoping for all its might….apir tayo guys we’re on the same boat afterall…

KAHIT SAAN MAN TAYO DALHIN NG LAHAT NG ITO…AT KAHIT SA KANGKUNGAN MAN….AT KAHIT MAGHINTAY MAN TAYO SA WALA at kahit ang lahat ng bagay na ito ay babalik at babalik sa WALA…still there’s a lot of lessons learned from all of these things….at the end of the day we came out totally blessed with what we get out
of this BIANJOE adventure….the friendships that has treasured after all these laughters and tears REMAINS PRICELESS that once upon our lives we are touched by this heartwarming story of pure….unselfishlove of two people who are destined to find each other…..

ang maging isang fan bow!!
