This may have been the shortest concert I’ve ever been to, but then again I haven’t been to a lot of concerts and I got in for free so it’s all good. My main theory on why the concert just went on for a little over an hour (with less than ten songs) is because they got drunk. I don’t know most of the songs they played and it got me tweetin’ tweetin’ tweetin’ “Dear Mr. Party Rock, please sing a song I know.” Also, one guy was missin’ missin’ missin’ but again it’s all good, their craziness more than made up for it.
Thank you to Pizza Hut Philippines for tickets to the premiere night of The Hunger Games at MOA. Go follow them on Twitter, they’re awesome and they give out free pizza. Char.
I’ve never been this excited about seeing a movie. This movie had me posting status updates and tweets filled with SBXLDBCW BCIDBKJAZJ. The Hunger Games is my Twilight. Katniss is my Bella, Peeta is my Jacob, and Gale is my Edward. I’ve waited for this movie for a long time, ever since my college barkada got hooked to the trilogy almost three years ago. I’ve also never been this satisfied with a book to film adaptation, because almost everything was how I imagined it to be when I was reading the book. Well, except Gale.
Gale from the movie doesn’t look a bit like how I imagined Gale from the book. The Gale in the book is a hunter, the one in the movie looks like a college freshman who, as my friend Rikka said, does nothing but go to the gym at day and go get facials at night.
I don’t want to spoil the movie for anyone (except for that part involving Gale) so for those who’ve read the trilogy I think that you won’t be disappointed with the adaptation and for those who haven’t read the trilogy it would still be a very good movie to see just go with someone who has read it so that he/she can fill you in on the significance of some parts that the movie did not explain in detail e.g. why are those parachutes so damn important. After that I hope you’ll go out and read the books because Suzanne Collins rocks.
Good night kids and may the odds be ever in your favor!
Hi I’m Ayla, and I’m a Carlos Celdran fan grrrl. I am also very much curious about the Marcos regime. I bought a shirt that has an “I am Marcos” on it because I believe that we shouldn’t exempt the former dictator from commercialization. I also stole my dad’s copy of Marcos’ Revolution From The Center.
I was able to get a barter blogger spot and attend the opening night of Carlos Celdran’s Livin’ La Vida Imelda at SLab/Silverlens last Tuesday.
I want to go all profound and insightful on how this show will make you rethink about where you stand on certain historical events. I want to share some of the trivia that I picked up about the Marcoses which will make me feel slightly smarter and more confident at small talk but I feel like that would spoil certain parts of the show so instead I’m gonna give you reasons on why I think this show rocks.
P.S. We need more girls who can kick some serious ass.
I was really excited about this concert, I even blogged about getting the tickets here.
We got there early, three hours before the show’s supposed to start.
I was surprised that there was no front act, at a little past eight in the evening, Jason (Or Jayzn, when we feel like pulling off a Marlene Aguilar) took on the stage with Toca “Not Blind” Rivera.
And then he sang, and we felt that we were loved. An ‘everybody loves everybody’ moment happened inside the SMART Araneta Coliseum. We even have this theory that there’s bound to be a Jason Mraz baby nine months after that night.
Hello, it’s past midnight and I just got home and I would just like to share what happened today. It was crazy – crazy bad, crazy good, and crazy spontaneous.
12:00 pm – I left the house for Batasan. It was a hot afternoon, I had on a polo shirt, pants, and my confused shoes.
1:00 pm – I get down in front of Sandiganbayan along Commonwealth. To get to Batasan I have to cross the street and ride a trike. It starts to rain, I take cover in a kiosk near the MMDA footbridge.
3:00 pm – Two hours later and I’m still stuck in that small kiosk on the other side of the street. By that time I already know the life story of the guy I was standing next to, he studies somewhere in Recto and lives in Marikina and that his commute home would’ve been fast and easy if not for his ex-girlfriend who asked him to accompany her to SM Far-view because it was raining.
After this year’s SONA a.k.a. wang wang all you want, The Bestfriend, as always, spontaneously invited me to the Philippine premiere of Captain America: The First Avenger at SM Megamall. (Premiere feelings: They always start out late so hey it’s awesome that it’s free but can we please start on time? Captain America was supposed to start at 7pm, I arrived at 8pm because of Batasan events and the movie started at around 8:30.)
Enough with the feelings, let’s move on to some more feelings! First off, I love rhyming so The Star-Spangled Man With A Plan is oh so very benta with me. Also, I love how showbiz Captain America is, he understands the value of well thought out production numbers, like, “Yeah, I get it we’re at war but come on let’s sing and dance.” Continue reading »
Last night, (if we were to follow the posters’ tagline) it all ended for me as I attended the press screening of Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 2 at the IMAX Theater of the SM Mall Of Asia. And yes, this is the obligatory, thank-you-bestfriend-for-making-this-happen part, thank you for this and the other press screenings we went to.
I re-read my feelings about Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows Part 1 and reassessed them: Continue reading »
First off I’d like to thank Phoebe for making my Tuesday night amazingly spontaneous. How? By tweeviting (tweet + inviting = tweeviting) me to a 6pm event at 1pm. And oh, it was my first time to meet her. Next, I’d like to apologize to Lova as I cancelled on him hence abandoning my role as the film freeloader bestfriend. I’m sorry but The Music Of Andrew Lloyd Webber trumped the Transformers 3′s premiere night.
I love musicals, and I won’t even pretend to know / like all of Andrew Lloyd Webber’s musicals. Before last night, he has pretty much been Cats + The Phantom Of The Opera + Evita + Jesus Christ Superstar for me. That’s it. I didn’t know that he has composed over 13 musicals, a song cycle, a set of variations, two film scores, and a Latin Requiem Mass. And I plagiarized that off of Wikipedia so just read more of that here. Speaking of plagiarism, he has been accused of that lotsa times too and that’s also on his Wikipedia page. (IRRELE THOUGHT: Who needs to go to school when you can practically learn everything at Wikipedia?)
Hello, yes I’m posting Film Feelings again which means that I got to attend another premiere night with the awesome bestfriend
who, if he is to be your boyfriend, will take you to these premiere nights instead of me. Hint hint.
Okay, straight up I’m gonna say that I didn’t like this film very much. I’m honest like that K, di porke’t libre maganda na. LOL.
Why didn’t I like it? Continue reading »
