beauty queens

Sunday, March 4th, 2007

really, i was thinking of producing something sensible and profound in the wake of the recent binibining pilipinas pageant — the only one i have ever dutifully tuned into in recent (gay) memory, btw — perhaps something about women and beauty and everything, but SERIOUSLY?

all i can think about right now is how SURREAL it all is, looking at tere now with the Bb Pilipinas-Universe sash, and remembering how, holyf, seven years ago WE HAD NO CLUE.

(did i just say seven years ago? man, we’re OLD.)

but then again, that’s not entirely true, is it? because people in that batch? at the back of my mind, i always somehow knew we were made for great things *g*

(waxing sentimental photo under cut, of course.)

captain barbell, redux

Saturday, January 13th, 2007

unfortunately melawrence, as it turned out last night, kit and teng were not siblings. disappointing, i know, especially since i would have preferred that twist instead of…

(haha cut for spoilers on captain barbell ending!) — (why i’m even bothering with the warning? i don’t know either!) (more…)

breaking news of the captain barbell kind

Thursday, January 11th, 2007

now that captain barbell is set to end its run as a primetime series tomorrow night, it’s about time i come out of the closet — yes. captain barbell is my illegal substance of choice.

and whether you like it or not, i’m going to do an episode commentary.

mau wows araneta, bags first pinoy idol title

Monday, December 11th, 2006

and so, it is done.

mau marcelo is the first philippine idol. which, if you ask me, is definitely of the good. though it was a really tough choice between her and gian. but then, gian (na binantayan talaga namin right from the start) will always be a winner in my book.

but for now - mau. (w00t)

you go girl.
iba ka, mau!

commuting woes

Friday, November 24th, 2006

you know what’s odd/ironic/annoying? crossing philcoa at 11:30 in the morning almost fried because they removed the overpass’ roof because they say it promotes vendors and beggars but guess what? the overpass has a freaking billboard attached to it.

billboards, not roofs then? ugh, pass me the sunscreen, please. because our mayor harbors a peculiar kind of concern for his constituents.

*

the good news however is that the quezon ave escalator is already working, so yay! after two months (it was put out of service by milenyo in late september), finally some relief. :)

*

on other news. philippine star publisher max soliven has already passed on.

*

and on a totally unrelated development: is it just me, or is captain barbell just getting infinitely harder to watch these days?

pow bows out of idol tilt

Tuesday, November 21st, 2006

it must have been the dress.

while i agree that dressing 23-year-old pow up in a blue silk chinese dress was a horrible idea to begin with, i say keeping miguel in the final four is, by far, *the* most disagreeable thing in this philippine idol race. seriously.
