Misleading Association

by on Oct.28, 2015, under Film & TV, Snark

For the record, to address some insinuations of the grossly misinformed, no. I don’t support Tito Sotto and his politics just because he is associated with Eat Bulaga.

Why? Because I’m educated and smart enough to distinguish and separate his showbiz associations from his political affiliations and beliefs.

I May As Well Have A Platform.

Mga kababayan,

Kasalukuyan po akong naghahanap ng running mate para maging Bise Presidente ko. Sya ang makakaakibat ko upang isulong ang adbokasya ko ukol sa China, kung saan papalakasin natin ang diplomatic ties sa Saturn at Jupiter para makatulong sa ating Hukbong Sandatahan. Gagawa kami ng VAA (Visiting Aliens Agreement).

No, I am not THAT Allan Carreon.

Just in case you happened to pass by, curious and wondering if I were in contact with aliens from outer space and if I had an embassy set up on the planet Tatooine.

I am, however, willing to open up diplomatic relations with the Klingons for so long as you promise to get me enough energon cubes from Cybertron.

Me.

Crazy Alien Guy.

Bitterness Sa Tamang Panahon

by on Oct.26, 2015, under Film & TV, Snark

It’s funny how some people are now trying to defend “It’s Showtime” because it’s probably finally realized it’s been beaten. Or rather, finally admitted it… because the show and the network have been in a state of denial.

“Why are people bashing Showtime?” the pretending-to-be-oblivious rabid Showtime fans ask. (I say “rabid” as there surely are some fans who are level-headed, and I myself do not deny watching some of its old features, like Pogay.)

“Why can’t they leave Showtime alone?” these mouth-frothers whine. “Vice says they were never trying to beat Eat Bulaga.” As though they had not been on social media for the last few months and had not seen exactly what had happened.

Wikipedia As Film

by on Oct.26, 2015, under Film & TV

I wanted to like the film Felix Manalo. I really did.

Yes, despite not being a fan of the INC, I am a fan of good films, especially good local ones, given that there has been a dearth of such in the past but where there has been hope in the last few years with the likes of Norte, Heneral Luna, On The Job, Ang Babae Sa Septic Tank, and several others. Moreover, ours is a history and culture rich in subject matters that can be mined to boost the local filmmaking industry and to provide quality entertainment at par with global standards.

Dear Polo Ravales
