Revisiting the old Adamson Chronicle office
November 20th, 2007 posted by JB under Adamson Chronicle

Adamson Chronicle

These are videos from “Invaderzim” (who’s probably former Chronicler Michael Gallego former graphic artist Alfred Jurcalis), showing a bunch of folks revisiting the old Adamson Chronicle office at the SV Penthouse. We have no idea when these were taken, so Invaderzim, please provide the context.

Anyway, the high point of the second video below is when the cameraman finds the old framed photo of the Adamson Chronicle (snapshot above). It was I think made in the late 1980s and shot by photographer Randy Rivera (who’s working in the US now with his family). Randy has tons of stories how they came to composing the shot, and the surrounding circumstances (it was a time of fervent student activism), and he’d probably freak out if he’d see it just sitting there waiting to be thrown out.

Video 1:

Video 2:

This last video feels like finding an archaeological relic: the white board. The old “writings on the wall” are still there, the last messages of desperation and hope. Well, alright, I don’t wanna sound like people died or something, but despite what resentment I feel about the last batch of Chroniclers (I still tend to “blame” them for bringing about the end of the paper’s old era), I can’t help but empathize.

And one more thing: there’s something missing in the view from the terrace: the old Jai Alai building. I’m sure many of those from my batch and earlier would say that single building alone was witness to many sessions of making out with their partners. LOL!
Video 3:

Bottomline: there’s a new batch, closely supervised by the admin and advised by one fine human being (Miss Arlene, just tell me when to stop being a cloying suck-ass. lol), and all I can say is: I hope this new setup will allow the student paper to reach its full potential (just like what they say in Lactum commercials). First, there should be more funds now (the 300 thousand or so per sem was so insufficient, it had been making the old Chroniclers cut one another’s throats), and I hope this new batch will fully make use of new technologies.

Let me just say this: they are so darned lucky. So I really hope that kind of luck works for them.

Damn,it’s in pieces! Hayy,i still miss those days..fresh pa rin sa senses ko ko ung feeling ng first time makatungtong sa opisinang yan. I will forever cherish that memory. taena namimiss ko nang maging chronicler!!

[ # 1377 ] Comment from deity [November 20, 2007, 4:46 pm]

“that single building alone was witness to many sessions of making out…”

aha!!!

now alam ko na kung bakit nisaway ako ni Mrs. Gamboa (former PE instructor, the aunt of Sharon Cuneta) na wag umakyat dun sa taas! that’s when the former photographer of Chronicle (circa 1987) invited me for a photo shoot kase kala niya ako yung nanalo na Bb. Freshman ‘87. bwahahah!!! (i wasn’t. LOL!)

now JB, don’t ever wonder why i used to think that the male staff of Chronicle were perves. not generalizing ha? LOL! ang mag-react… GUILTY!

who’s that photographer? i forgot his name. hindi naman sha mukhang nerd. ende rin sha matangkad. mabait sha actually.

does anyone know/remember?

[ # 1378 ] Comment from JB [November 21, 2007, 1:19 am]

deity, if that was 1987, it would be Mar Bustamante, who eventually went on to work as the university’s official photog (yearbook and the adamson newsletter). he was still there in 1999, but i’m not sure if he’s still working for them now.

about “pervinesss”… he he. hindi ko na lang sasabihin yung sa generation namin, but let me just say that the venerable Maryo Acyatan would usually “lure” the staff with the generous availability of Playboy magazines around the office just to encourage them to “make tambay.” masyadong mataas kasi ang penthouse, kaya usually tinatamad ang mga staff na umakyat dun. and once you’re there, nakakatamad na ring bumaba.

i think by 1999, it was those damn high school kids who were using the terrace to make out pag wala ang staff. sayang hindi pa uso noon ang motion-capture webcams. lol

[ # 1379 ] Comment from deity [November 21, 2007, 2:22 am]

yeah. is that him? do you know where i can contact him? he’s got a picture of me and ogie alcasid. ahahhah! i want a copy! LOL!

hay naku, yung SV dati eh girls high, di ba? tapos yung sa CS yung boys. is that right? gawd. alzheimers.

[ # 1380 ] Comment from JB [November 21, 2007, 2:44 pm]

deity, turns out Mar is still with Adamson News:

http://www.adamson.edu.ph/news/staff.asp

hala, ipahanap mo sa kanya mga freshman photos mo at i-share mo sa amin. he he he

[ # 1381 ] Comment from deity [November 21, 2007, 2:49 pm]

coolness! if you have seen my college photos in Friendsters, the Bb. LA ‘90 post pageant pic, Mar was the one who took that one.

i should write to him and harass him. i need that picture with Ogie. hahahaha!

thanks dude!

sh%$@! ngayon ko lang napuod ang video ng TAC na ito. Lintik na Admin yan! Kahit na meron nang bagong TAC ay hindi pa rin dapat kalimutan na ang OSA at ang Admin ang nagpasara ng dyaryo. Nilunod ng OSA ang TAC tapos ito rin ang nagbigay ng MMR. Ngayon hawak na sa leeg ng OSA ang TAC gaya nang nais nito nung una pa. Di nya kasi ito mahawakan noong mga nakaraang dekada. Di na sila nakuntento sa sangkatutak na RSOs na hinawakan nila sa leeg. PAti nga ang AUSG napaluhod na nila dahil sa NO FAILING GRADE policy. Tapos ngayon, ang TAC - Sh$@!@%%! Nilamon na nila nang buo.

Kayong OSA, gawin nyo ng maayos ang trabaho nyo at di yung didiktahan nyo ang mga estudyante sa lahat ng binubuga ng amo nyo kaya paglabas ng Adamsonian sa Adamson, di alam ang gagawin kapag inaabuso na ng kanilang mga amo kasi kahit sa Adamson mismo, sinanay nyo nang maging sunod-sunoran sa inyo ang mga estudyante na kapag naging pasaway ito at di ayon sa nais nyo, bibigyan nyo ng disiplinary actions. Dapat kayo ang bigyan ng disciplinary actions sa sangkatutak na violations at abuses ninyo.

IBALIK NYO ANG DANGAL NG AUSG, TANGGALIN NYO ANG NO FAILLING GRADE POLICY!

BITAWAN NYO ANG STUDENT PUBLICATION!

walang mangyayari kapag kayo ang laging nasunod. Dadami lang ang mga sunod-sunurang aso sa mundo.

nGAYON, HAWAK NA NG ADMIN ANG TAC, YES YES YES YO NA LANG KAPAG TUITION FEE CONSULTATIONS. YES YES YO NA LANG KAPAG ME ABUSES SA MGA ESTUDYANTE. YES YES YO NA LANG SA DIKTA NG OSA ANG TAC. ANO PA BA ANG AASAHAN KAPAG TINALIAN NA ANG TAC?

HALATANG-HALATA ANG MOTIBO SA GARAPALAN AT ILEGAL NA PAGSASARA NG TAC NOON. TINAPAKAN AT BINALEWALA ANG ED BOARD NOON. GANYAN MAGTRABAHO ANG ADMIN. KUNG NAGAWA NILA SA TAC YUN, KAHIT KANINO KAYA NA NILANG GAWIN ANG LAHAT.

BUTI NA LANG WALA NA AKO SA ADAMSON.

MABUHAY ANG MALAYANG PAMAMAHAYAG PANGKAMPUS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

[ # 1401 ] Comment from stiban_graffiti [November 28, 2007, 6:43 pm]

Mahirap talagang magpakatao pag ganitong ka-brutal na eksena makikita mo. Asan na yung archives ng TAC? Baka pinasunog na ng Admin! Asan na yung laman ng TAC Opis? Wala na kayong respeto sa student pub.

Ano natutunan ko sa Adamson? Akala ko wala pero ngayon naalala ko na uli. Natutunan ko pala na di lahat ng tao ay nagmula sa unggoy, ung karamihan nag-evolve mula sa aso.

[ # 1406 ] Comment from plumb [November 30, 2007, 10:47 am]

Okay yung no failing grade policy, nasasanay ang mga estudyante na maging disiplinado para asikasuhin ang mga bagay na dapat nilang inaasikaso. Sana ganun din gawin nila sa bagong TAC- para mga disiplinado ang mangunguna sa pag sigaw ng mga hinain ng buong campus.

Isa pa, wala pa namang narerelease na issue ang bagong TAC… anong basehan ng pagko-conclude na oo lang ang sasabihin nila sa lahat ng gusto ng Admin?

Ang problema, walang communication sa dalawang party na sangkot.

[ # 1407 ] Comment from stiban_graffiti [November 30, 2007, 12:48 pm]

Yung NO FAILING GRADE POLICY, sabihin mo yan kay Edison, Einstein, at Bonifacio. Academic Intelligence para sa future corporate slaves. Maraming basehan ng pagiging disiplinadong estudyante, di lang sa grades. Di porket na me bagsak ang isang Adamsonian ay di na sya eligible para mamuno. Di porket na me bagsak ay ibig sabihin pabaya syang estudyante. Di porket na me bagsak ay bobo syang estudyante at walang disiplina sa sarili.

Me rally bukas para sa tfi, yung ausg president di pwedeng sumama kasi me thesis sya. Sarili muna. sarili muna. sarili muna.

Akademista ang gusto ng Admin. Yan ang ayoko sa sistema ng edukasyon sa Pinas, mataas ka lang sa recitation at matataas ang quizez mo at perfect attendance ka ay nagpapatunay na matino kang estudyante. marami pang basehan ng pagiging matinong estudyante di lang sa grades.

Kaya pinamumunuan tayo ng mga politikong edukado na magnanakaw at magagaling masyadong manloko! Asan na tayo? me nagawa ba sila. Kaya nga nanalo si erap kasi alam ng masa na wala ring magagawa yung mga edukadong politiko.

kung di mo alam ang kasaysayan, di mo makikita ang kinabukasan.

Sobra na nga yung ginawa nila sa TAC:
1. Illegal na pagpapasara.
2. TInapon yung archives at old issues. Di na nirespeto ang history ng dyaryo. buti nagawa pang mabawi yung photo ni Randy Rivera.
3. Me adviser. Pagkakaalam ko ilang dekada nang walang adviser ang tac kasi jurisdiction ng ed board ang pangangasiwa sa student pub. ngayon lang ata nagka-adviser ang tac.
4. Ngayon, magre-report na sa OSA ang TAC. Bangungot sa akin iyon. Buti wala na ata yung dating OSA Director.

Teka, babaguhin kaya ng Admin ang editorial board policy?

yung kredo ng TAC din kaya?

Ano matitira sa TAC, yung name nya lang ba?

nakita ko ang mangyayari sa TAC sa isang panaginip ko dati.

walang communication, me communication ba nung pinasara yung Chronicle? kinausap ba nila yung last ed board sa pagbubukas ng tac? puro admin ang nagsasalita, pag ang estudyante na ang nagsalita - deretso na sya sa OSA para disiplinahin.

pag estudyante na nagsalita - bingi ang admin.

ilang ulit na bang nagtaas ng tuition fee? taon-taon. kung tatanungin ang mga adamsonian, papayag ba sila? syempre hindi. pero ano nangyayari sa tuition fee consulation? formality lang ng TFI parati. akala ko ba pro-poor ang Adamson? Nakalimutan nya ang vision mission nya.

Tingnan na lang natin pero di ako sa iyo inis dahil di kita kilala.

Sa Admin at sa OSA ako inis.

Anyway, ganyan talaga buhay… minsan-minsan lang naman ito…

[ # 1408 ] Comment from JB [November 30, 2007, 2:43 pm]

stiban, i’m assuming you know exactly what happened with the chronicle that it ended up that way? the exact circumstances and all that jazz? would you care to share it with us?

yung issue about the no failing grade policy, i understand that, although when i was a student i was also very rabid about it. the rationale seems to be, everyone enrolled at the university is first and foremost a STUDENT, and a student’s major business is to study. if a student writer or a student leader fails in this major business of studying for the sake of an extra-curricular activity (chronicle and ausg), kahiya hiya naman sa mga magulang ng student na yun, hindi ba. and if you fail in your own grades, that would mean you’re losing your status as a student, and if you’re losing your status as a student, then what the hell is your business with the university in the first place if you’re no longer a legit student? alam mo, i also used to regard it as an oppressive measure to “control” the students, but somehow i see the broad point of it. it’s not about being bobo, it’s about legitimacy, it’s about not missing the point why you’re in adamson in the first place. sure, you can play hotshot ausg president or chronicle editor, but only as long as you’re not sacrificing your academics and not wasting the money your parents burn to send you to school, hindi ba. syempre, all that activism is a lot of fun, but at the end of the day, you still don’t earn your own money and are still heavily dependent on the good graces of other people (aka, “parents”).

so kung humihingi ka lang ng baon at pamasahe sa nanay mo, how can you delude yourself about your self-proclaimed bravado and think you can stop something as systematic and massive as tfi?

now i’m not “defending” the admin, but many of the things we believed in when we were younger were simply because there were many things we couldn’t see or understand back then.

i welcome the new chronicle because, based on what i’ve seen in the last few years of the old paper, the chronicle stopped “chronicling” and turned out to be far from what the old generations would have hoped for. ngayon kung papipiliin mo ako between the old “adviser-free” chronicle who was “running wildly in the dark” in terms of running a student paper, and this new student paper directly managed by the admin, i will choose the present one. you know why? because that’s the only way the paper can continue thriving. that’s the only way it can get decent funding. that’s the only way it can be “guided” by a mature manager (adviser). and by “mature”, i mean one who oversees the paper in the long term, and not by the limited one-year tenure of the ed-board. in management, importante iyan pare. dahil ang term ng ed board ay isang taon lang, they tend to think in the short term — they always try to do as much as they can cram in one year, usually by sacrificing succeeding generations. in a way, it’s a form of shortsighted selfishness.

but with the “guidance” of somebody who will stay with the paper for a long time, then finally the chronicle will have something called “long-term direction.” it will re-establish the old office norms, and hopefully the paper will be fully reassimilated with the entire community. but let’s just wait and see; hindi pa nga sila nakakapaglabas ng first issue e. let’s give the kids a chance. he he he

[ # 1411 ] Comment from Josh [November 30, 2007, 3:19 pm]

1. The new TAC will not be controlled by OSA.

2. Ms. Arlene Paredes will be an advising the TAC because not everyone in the editorial board has experience in campus journalism. Have no fear, they are well screened in written and oral examinations.

3. First week of January will be the target date of release of the new Chronicle.

4. Annual tuition fee increase is normal in every school. I do not know about the law, but I think CHED and/or the government already approved that decades ago.

5. Ironically, OSA urges the new TAC to blast and exploit professors which are not performing well.

6. They’ll still use “The Adamson Chronicle” but have the logo and layout facelifted.

7. I don’t like the “No Failing Grade” policy. Now I know why there are only few engineering students in AUSG.

8. Visit the school again and you will agree that the facilities have vastly improved. Try to check out the ST Theater, the fully air conditioned classrooms (JP building before 2005 = HELL; Now they are FREEZERS, they have the coldest classrooms), the comfort rooms are recently renovated, the ST canteen refurbished (standing while eating is the thing of the past now), plasma TV’s are scattered around the school grounds, the new landscape and facade of SV building, and even Estero de Balete is now getting better.

[ # 1425 ] Comment from stiban_graffiti [December 5, 2007, 1:15 pm]

JB, yung last days ng TAC tingin ko di ako yung tamang tao para magkwento nun although alam ko kung ano ang nangyari. me pagkukulang ang edboard nun pero nasa Admin pa rin ang real cause sa pagkasara ng TAC para magawa nito ang matagal na nitong nais gawin - ang complete makeover ito.

Maraming problema ang TAC noon lalo na sa pondo pero nagagawa pa ring maihaon yun, ilang harana na rin ang ginawa para itaas ang publication fee pero napakalabo.

Yung tungkol sa adviser, di ako sang-ayon sa adviser. Nagkataon lang na si Arlene Paredes ang naging unang adviser ng bagong TAC at mukhang okay ang profile nya. Pero di naman sya forever na magiging adviser ng TAC, paano kung after one year palitan sya dun at ilagay yung gaya ni Sazon o kaya ni dela Rosa? Eh sobrang napaka-ano nila. Na kapag me ganung klaseng tao na naging adviser ng TAC ay ewan ko na lang.

Yung ginawa namin dyan, hindi adviser ang kinuha namin. Yung dating EIC ay nagiging Editorial Consultant para tulungan yung pumalit sa kanyang EIC. Kasi naranasan nya na yung mga problema nung term nya kaya marami syang pwedeng itulong sa new edboard.

Merong mga matitinong adviser na hahayaan niyang mag-grow ang hina-handle nya pero konti lang silang MATURE. Karamihan, sila ang masusunod lalo pa yung kapit tuko sa Admin. ngayon, wla pang friction sa Edboard at sa adviser nito. pero paano sa susunod? Syempre ang kinuha muna ng admin ay yung gaya ni Arlene Paredes para magaan tanggapin lalo na ng mga alumni ng TAC at para walang ingay na maririnig.

Naranasan ko na yung mga ganyang tao na nasa pwesto noong nasa Adamson pa ako. Sila nasusunod.

Wala namang nagbabago sa sistema. Ganun pa rin. Paikot-ikot lang at pinapaikot lang tayo nito.

Yung annual tuition fee increase, alam ko unstoppable iyon. Pero ganun ganun na lang ba iyon. Tutal wala naman talaga tayong magagawa kahit isang katerbang editorial pa ang gawin natin. Pero dapat nandun pa rin ang pagnanais na panindigan ang isang bagay na kahit imposible ay dapat ipaglaban. Ang edukasyon ay dapat para sa lahat kahit isa na lamang itong ilusyon pero dapat.

Naalala ko nung freshman ako, walo ang block section ng ME noon. pero nung graduation na - 20 percent na lang ang natirang nag-aaral sa Adamson. kahit dito sa Saudi, gustong pahintuin ng kasama ko yung anak nya sa college kasi di na kaya yung matrikula.

Imposibleng mapigilan ang TFI pero pwede. Ganyan din ang sinasabi sa amin nung nasa Chronicler pa kami. Imposible. Tatawanan lang kami ng mas matatanda sa amin at sasabihin na ano ba ang ginagawa ng mga kabataang ito. Yun pala, ngayong tayo na yung matatanda, iyon din pala ang sasabihin natin sa mga kabataang nakikita nating ginagawa yung mga ginagawa natin noon.

Kahit malabo ang TFI, pinanindigan namin ang imposibleng iyon. At hanggang ngayon, masasabi ko na sa mga taong inilagi ko sa Chronicle - doon ko lang naramdaman na nag-eexist ako at me deeper meaning ang pagpasok ko sa Adamson.

Yung sa mga bagong facilities ng Adamson. Yup, maganda yan, pero yung mga ‘can afford’ lang na mga Adamsonian na patuloy pa ring nakakapag-aral ang nakakatikim nito. Paano na yung iba? Bakit di gumawa ang TAC ng article sa ganitong scenario. Asan na yung mga huminto sa pag-aaral? Bakit sila huminto? Ilan sila? Wala na ba talagang magagawa?

Sana makita natin di lang yung mga Adamsonian na nag-aaral sa Adamson, sana makita rin natin yung mga Adamsonian na bumitaw na sa pag-aaral nila.

Yung sa dahilan kung bakit nag-aaral ang isang estudyante. Oo, para mag-aral at makatapos kasi binibigyan sya ng magulang nya ng baon. At ang priority dapat ay ang pag-aaral nya. SANG-AYON AKO DITO AT ITO ANG NARARAPAT KAYA NGA NAKATAPOS AKO SA COURSE KO AT ACTUALLY BOARD PASSER PA AKO.

Pero kung ito lang ang aatupagin ng isang Adamsonian, puro grades nya at ang ikakasiya ng magulang nya ay ano kayang klaseng tao ang kakalabasan nya? Sarili lang ang iniisip at walang pakialam sa problema sa paligid nya. Paglabas nya sa Adamson, mas lalo na syang walang concern sa kapaligiran nya kasi mas aatupagin nya yung kung paano sya kikita at mabubuhay sa araw-araw. Apathy sa eskuwelahan. Apathy sa lipunan.

Ito lang ba ang edukasyon? dE-NUMERO? 1.0, 1.2, 1.5, 2.0. 3.0?

Mas gusto kong makita na simple lang ang Adamson pero maraming estudyante. At di yung parang naglalakad ako sa La Salle. Dati napasyal ako sa TUP, ibang-iba ang pakiramdam ko dun kesa sa Adamson. Kasi yung mga estudyante dun, karamihan mga anak pobre na mapapansin mo sa porma nila pero nakakapag-aral sila.

Lulunukin na lamang ba natin ang sistema tutal matatanda na tayo at di na tayo gaya nung dati na umuusok pa ang dugo para sumali sa mga rally at sa pagsusulat ng mga maiinit na artikulo? tutal maraming taon na ang lumipas at nakakatawa na lamang balikan ang nakaraan at kung pwede nga lamang ulitin ang nangyari - na sana ay di tayo naging ganun.

Noong bago ako umalis ng TAC, isa ito sa kinatatakutan kong mangyayari sa akin. Na yung mga paninindigan ko bilang isang Chronicler noon ay ibabaon ko na lamang sa lupa at magsisimula akong makibagay sa sistema ng mundo.

TO SIN BY SILENCE WHEN WE SHOULD PROTEST MAKES COWARDS OUT OF MEN - TAC CREDO

[ # 1427 ] Comment from stiban_graffiti [December 5, 2007, 1:44 pm]

Sang-ayon ako sa sinasabi mo dito at kahit ako gusto kong magawan ito ng solusyon noon na yung bang nag-iiba ang outfit ng TAC depende sa mood ng EIC at ng Edboard na mauupo. Pero di ADVISER na appointed ng Admin ang solution dito.

Next time uli kasi me pupuntahan pa ako eh.

[ # 1431 ] Comment from erwin [December 6, 2007, 10:04 am]

sasali lang po ako sa usapan with regards the TFI. yung ausg leadership lang ang pwedeng makapigil dyan based on ched regulations, as far as i know. if they employ the legal means to do it instead of resorting to extralegal means or thru street parliamentarians.

based on my experience, we were able to cut down the proposed 12% tfi in 1996-1997 school year to 6% by presenting a valid argument before the board composed of the admin, the alumni, the chronicle, and the teacherts’ association. during the first few rounds of meetings the admin discussed the proposals. the ausg presented their position and we laid out the practicality, necessity and benefits of not having the increase. we created a discussion where it almost seemed like a debate. after the first few meetings, it was a stalemate. and based on the regulations, it was up to the alumni to decide what would be the best option.

i remember meeting the officers of the alumni, composed of oldies…some faces you would not recognize. yet they had the power back then to decide on our fate.

They asked us what our stand was, and we stated that based on inflation and economics, students could not afford the 12% increase. considering also the kind of facilitis we had back in 1995, it was not justifiable. after the discussions, we were finally able to have a good feel that the 12% was met by the alumni to be too high. it was decided by them to just increase it to 6%.

not many know this. the ausg officers who preceded me do not know how to negotiate and present a valid argument.

the strategy therefore is not to take to the streets. if the same rules apply, which is alumni eventually deciding in case of a stalemate…then the best course of action is to lobby or better yet infiltrate the alumni so that the studentry could get a good fighting chance.

hope this advice gets heard.

bottomline…

lahat ng naging bahagi ng chronicle ay nalungkot sa pagkasara nito.

lahat ng naging bahagi ng chron ay nakinabang (sa kung ano mang paraan) dito..

ang pagbagsak ng chron ay kasalanan ng last ed board.(kasama ako dun)

pero nasaan ang mga naging bahagi ng publikasyon noong mga panahong nauubusan na ng tinta ang mga printer sa opisina. wala nang kapeng mainom ang mga staff. at ang tanging inspirasyon ng mga staff dito ay ang mga archive na nilikha ng mga pangalan na ni hindi man lang nila nasilayan ang mga pagmumukha.

sa totoo lang, ang huling staff at edboard ng chron ay sumabak sa giyera na ang dala lamang ay ballpen at kaunting teorya.

hindi ako naninisi, o naghahanap ng sisihin.

kung may bagong chron, so be it.
kung hawak sila ng admin, so be it.
pero ako, at kung sino mang taga chron na makakabasa nito, may magagawa tayo para maimulat ang mga mata ng mga bagong staff at edboard ng chron tungkol sa tunay na kalagayan ng adamson…

if you were part of the last ed board, you probably know in the last few months, i was actually [despite my increasing resentment over the stupid things i had been hearing about what was happening in the office back then] trying to help you. im not sure if silvere borromeo relayed to any of you my “salvage plans,” but the simple point is even when they’re backed against a wall, the ed board remained ridiculously arrogant and probably treated my “negotiate with the admin and reach a compromise” proposal with the chronicle’s usual “chronic” suspicion. alam mo na, mention “admin” and “compromise” and the chronicle’s reaction would be “he’s probably in cahoots with them.”

and remember, too, how i offered (with alvin julian) to temporarily finance the paper (because of your funding problems) and directly handle its editorial management (because the content was becoming really terrible) for a year just so you can negotiate and bring you back on your feet. that was early 2005, buddy. can you guess what kind of reception i got?

bottomline, when i began seeing as early as 2003 that the paper’s editorial direction was getting worse (remember when i actually edited an entire issue of the paper during ria’s term? yeah, i did that. that was 2003. and the quality of the articles submitted to me depressed me for days), i would usually tell the chronicle guys what they should do, and like erwin ilao previously said, you do it effectively by negotiation. unfortunately, that’s not what the ed board did. even in the very last months of its life, it remained cocky even when it no longer had anything to be cocky about.

to be fair with you guys, maybe my generation “had taught” and left you that climate of suspicion. the “arrogance” and the misled sense of “independence” started as early as 1994 and probably the reason why it eventually got killed by the admin. for everyone’s understanding, maybe i’ll write clearly about this later…

Damn JB, you really did that? Wow!

Oh my, I didn’t know na ganito na pala ang nangyayari noon. Nandito na ako sa Dubai nun..

No doubt hindi nagwaver ang malasakit mo sa paper JB and I am glad that there are former editors like you and Alvin. As for me, don’t ask. I flew to escape it all. Kakahiya mang aminin but that’s the truth. To abandon everything you have once fought for (and was ready to die for) because I realized that no matter what you do, at the end of the day you still have to eat. But I digress..

What happened to the publication is really disappointing. I was saddened by it’s sudden closure. Pero ngayon at least I am happy it’s revived. I won’t jump into assumptions. Magoobserve muna ko and possibly offer any help I can..

[ # 1440 ] Comment from stiban_graffiti [December 7, 2007, 12:10 pm]

Nalulungkot talaga ako para sa TAC.

Di ko alam ang nangyari after 2002 kaya wala ako sa posisyon para mag-comment o manisi. Ang alam ko lang ay yung last days nila kasi kakauwi ko lang nun mula Riyadh.

Di ko rin pwedeng sisihin yung mga term na iyon as a whole. alam ko certain individuals lang ang me pagkukulang lalo na yung mga nakaupo sa pwesto.

pero kahit na ano pa yung mga pagkukulang nila - GAYA NG MGA PAGKUKULANG AT KAHIBANGAN NUNG LAHAT NG TERM NG TAC NOON ay sino ako para sisihin sila na bakit di nyo sinunod ang pinayo ko sa inyo. Nung tayo ang nasa posisyon, MATIGAS DIN ANG ULO NATIN. O BAKA MAS MATIGAS PA.

ang pagkakaiba lang ngayon, tinodo na ng admin ang pwersa nya at NAPASARA SILA. pwede namang ipasara ng admin ang TAC noon pa. Kahit noong 1994, 1995, 1996, 1997, 1998, 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002. Noon pa sila nanggigil sa TAC.

Pero kung di sinamantala ng Admin ang kahinaan ng TAC noong 2005 ay marahil nairaos ng dyaryo ang buhay nito at kung me naupong matinong edboard ay baka nagawa uli nitong ibangon ang publication at di na nito inabot ang manunubos nito ayon sa propesiya.

MINALAS LANG TALAGA ANG LAST BATCH. Kasi lahat naman ng term halos ng TAC ay naging palaban sa TAC. Lahat naman halos ng TAC ay nagkaroon ng weak moments. lahat naman halos ng term ng TAC ay nagkaroon ng DEATH THREATS na mapapasara sila.

Pwedeng napasara ang TAC nung term ni Alvin, nung term ni Celia na napakatindi ng internal problems, nung term ni Maui na watak-watak ang edboard, at nung term ni Sylvere.

kahit naging matino pa ang last terms, ME SUPER POWERS pa rin ang admin na ipasara ito anytime.

Kasi ang mga factors na iyan ang naging dahilan kung bakit naging Chronicle ang Chronicle. Kung bakit masayang balik-balikan ang nakaraan. at kung bakit matindi ang attachment natin sa dyaryo. kasi kahit na mas malansa pa sa wet market ang sistema sa loob ng Penthouse ay dito natin naramdaman ang tunay na edukasyon at ang manindigan habang umiilag sa mga nagkalat na problema.

noong term ni ate ria hanggang kay kuya jepoy ay staff pa lang ako. although dahil madalas kong kasama sina kuya sylvere at kuya mike, alam ko kung sino yung tumutulong mag-edit ng mga articles (ghost editor?). nakita ko rin yung kalagayan ng diyaryo noon. maging sa pamamahala at pagsusulat na rin mismo (maging ako ay aminadong walang alam sa pagsusulat noong mga panahong iyon. pinipilit ko lang sabayan si kuya mike sa pagbabasa ng libro ng kung sino mang pilosopo para magkaroon ng ideya at konting generals sa san marcelino) ay hindi maayos ang karamihan sa staff ng chron. noong term namin, (last edboard) start from scratch kami. naniniwala ako na lahat o halos lahat ng nasa edboard that time ay nagmature in terms of writing at pamamahala sa diyaryo. pero dahil 50/50 na ang buhay ng chron, at karamihan ay may financial, emotional, family problems, isama mo pa yung failing grades at identity crisis, talagang nahirapan kami ng lubusan.

alam ni kuya aldrin yun. kasi sa tuwing nagkikita kami at naguusap yun yung puro hinaing ko sa kaniya. hanggang sa huli pinilit naming bumangon, pero masyadong mabigat yung nakatapak sa dibdib namin. naging mahina na rin ang suporta ng chron sa mga estudiyante. sariwa pa sa isip ko yung mga panahong nilapitan ko ang lahat ng org sa AdU para suportahan ang diyaryo pero bilang lang sa daliri ang sumang-ayon (bagay na hindi ko na ipinaalam sa staff at edboard dahil baka lalo silang mawalan ng pag-asa). pero katulad ng sinabi ko, tapos na. lumuha man ang lahat ng dugo o magpakita man si tig-ong sa lhat ng mga pari sa adamson ay nangyari na lahat.

muli, wala akong sinisisi. kung meron man, malamang sarili ko yun. siguro tutukan na lang nating lahat ang bagong staff ng chron. kung may pagkakataon, ikuwento natin sa kanila kung sino o ano ba talaga ang The Adamson Chronicle.

once naging part din ako ng adamson chronicle, we experienced campus repression during that time, the admin closed our office and we have no choice kundi sa kalsada gumawa ng newspaper. di rin kami pinayagan ipasok ang issue sa loob ng campus. how sad na parang history repeats itself when i knew whats goin on sa tac ngayon.

[ # 1515 ] Comment from greg [January 17, 2008, 9:46 am]

i still rmber the palaban na issue na ginawa namin with Dennis Torrecampo as our eic, isang black colored magazine, isang issue na matindi naging impact sa adamsonian. matapos ang issue na un we face libel suit case ng admin, mostly ng staff ay expelled tinira kc sila sa failing grades. masaya na malungkot tn nakakatakot during that time, ang gulo talga, sumabay pa kc ung frat wars. after maybe a month nag open again ang tac, kc its clear na campus press repression ang ginawa ng admin, bumalik kmi sa opis dala dala ang computer na gnamit namin sa labas, mga past issues ng chronicle, and it is clear pa sakin na ako ang natago ng isang laminated frame ng chronicle, we start again sa work pero and pumalit na eic during that time ay mejo moderate na sbi nila. i didnt stay longer sa tac kc graduating nko during that time. para sa present board just do your job for the adamsonian, if u feel na ur being repress do something kc kyo ang boses ng adamsonian. ask sna ako ng mga available issues nyo kung meron pa.

hi!

i am one of the bunch of chronicle alumni nung panahon ni dennis torrecampo. i wrote for TAC nang about three years (EICs: the late donnielou montalban, rino reginio and then dennis). i think yung kay icthys (as DT calls himself) ang pinakarurok ng buhay ko sa adamson, at natikman namin na maisara ang TAC (at gumawa ng protest posters sa harap nag EAC). it was worth the fight though on hindsight it was a losing battle against the then triumvirate of delagoza, dytian at yung pinaslang na security officer. sa mga bagong usbong na manunulat ng TAC, tama nga at may adviser na kayo (mula sa admin, which we DREADED and STRONGLY OPPOSED during our time) pero dapat hindi yan makahadlang sa naisin ninyo ng maglahad ng istorya para sa mga inyong mambabasa, ang mga mag-aaral ng adamson.

pagbati!

[ # 2155 ] Comment from dentorrecampo [April 21, 2008, 2:42 pm]

if there are lessons we have to heed from past, present and future of the adamson chronicle and campus journalism in general, it is these:

1. accept the adversarial role of journalism, but use it to further a good crusade (and make sure you’ve justified the advocacy/ies within yourself a million times before even beginning to write about them). a sharp pen that only punches on empty air is an aimless tirade, not a noble cause.

2. there is a time to fight, to negotiate, to be the mouthpiece, and to seek consensus. but whatever the case or the cause-never, ever compromise your right to write.

3. democracy is fighting an idea with a better idea. so do your homework first, and be a writer for crying out loud (ask, and scrutinize!) when all else fails, agree to disagree.

4. when it seems to be a losing battle, self-blame does not solve anything. it just means you have not processed the issue well enough to come up with solutions. take more time out then press back on.

5. love what you do, but know when to distance yourself. when you come back for the next round, you would’ve seen it with different eyes and your writing flows wildly and wonderfully. you stop writing when you stop learning.

especially to editors: appreciate and understand the uniqueness of your situations. we are all given our distinct challenges only once-the timeliness of our cause, how we assess our environments, and other nuances. but it takes a leader to solder on when nothing seems to make sense, and a loser to accept things as “normal” then waste away and be forgotten.

Hi JB,

That old framed photo of the Adamson Chronicle was actually taken by the late Donnielou Montalban. I was a staffwriter/artist then (1987-89) and i think i still have a copy of that issue. Grabe! ano na nagyari sa Chronicle? Batch namin ang nagpa-carpet, wallpaper, aircon at furnishings dyan pati yung whiteboard at refridgerator thanks to Dennis Solatan who preceded Donnie.

Well there’s been a lot of “issues” ang Chronicle even in those days pero syempre parte na ng buhay ika nga.

Batchmates ko among others (sana wala akong nakalimutan):
Dennis S, Donnie, Maryo, Rino, Resty, Mashhur, Alwyn, Flor, Richard, Riz, Arbee, Greg?…

Kmusta na kayo? Paramdam naman dyan at SANA MAY REUNION.

Mabuhay ang TAC! Mabuhay ang mga nerds! (joke)

(sorry guys and gals - the younger ones - you thrashed the legacy by coming out with a ‘volume one’, which i find a pejorative remark to those who toiled before you, non-conformist or otherwise).

just the same, good luck to you new chronicle guys and gals! i heard you get editorial support from the AdU administration. not bad, but not necessarily good either.

[ # 2464 ] Comment from razzahsleb [May 19, 2008, 4:52 am]

Yoohoo! arbee! Last time i saw you 1990 pa. So happy for you pare.
Si Riz na lang lagi kong nakakasalubong dito sa Makati. Si Flor txt-txt lang minsan pag xmas. Resty i believe is vice president for public affairs sa STI here though di pa kami nagkita since 1997 sa bday ni Donnie with Vic and Rino. Art director ako for DDB Worldwide handling the McDo account.
Ano? ‘volume one’? di na nag-bless sa mga lolo nila? Mga walang pakundangan ang mga jaskeng batang ere! hehehe!

Yeah, good luck to the new Chronicle!

The admin cannot summarily close down the student publication. “The right of the students to free speech and is not left at the door upon entering the premises of the educational institution.” Supreme Court ng Pilipinas mismo me sabi nyan.

Funding wise, the Admin collects it for the TAC. Me agreement yan, brokered by Chato. (Ang ex gf ni Randy, peace!)

What the TAC needs is a legal adviser, from the outside who will give them the voice when push comes to shove. I recommend Joselito Mendoza. He was a member of the editorial board of the TAC even before my time.

I cannot volunteer my services kasi US na ako nakabase, but I can assure you, I still can help with my lawyer friends who can do me some favor.

Actually, TAC can then sue Adamson itself for closing it down. (Sana nga lang eh naitago pa ng ED Board yung MOA ng Chronicle at the admin re fees and collection.) But its moot and academic na.

So, to the new members of the TAC, be firm and just do your thing. I miss the SV penthouse (as the name stands… pent.. petting house…) hehehehe

[ # 4483 ] Comment from matahari [October 10, 2008, 7:45 am]

It’s nice to know some of my former colleagues are still around. Mashhur here. Bel, musta na noo? hehehe. Mala Riz na ba like me? Arbee, buhay ka pa pala?

I just discovered this site. Anyways, just want to share the sad news that our friend and former staffwriter, the Math Whiz James Gabriel passed away recently after a lingering illness. Nakakalungkot because he was paralyzed daw after coming home from abroad according to his brother who was a former employee of Adamson din. Si Noel Fontilla na lang ang me contact ako. Alwyn once visited and even treated me. Medyo ingat na rin siya sa pagkain dahil natuluyan na siyang me high blood like those days. (Remember the that “bloody” meeting when he took out a knife dahil napikon sa inyo ni James hehehe.)

To JB

Nice going! You made reconnections with the past handy with this site…keep it up and thanks!

[ # 4484 ] Comment from AJ007 [October 11, 2008, 1:52 am]

Kuya Mashur,

Allan Jay here, remember me? I contributed some articles in Adamson News when you were still there.

May mga nakakatawang pang yayari din pala noon. But at least yung event can be remembered with nostalgia. Anyway, musta ka na?

[ # 4488 ] Comment from matahari [October 13, 2008, 2:58 am]

Of course, Allan. I remember you. Who doesn’t? hehehe. I’m doing fine.

All of us from Adamson Chronicle had our own share of quarrels within the ranks. It was part of our initiation to the more complex and larger conflict ahead. Compared to the Chronicle bickerings, the subsequent in-fighting and jockeying for positions in our professional life is a lot more nauseating because we will be up against more cunning, wily and sometimes saintly-looking adversaries who are older, sometimes wrinkled, and often more ruthless and scheming. The Chronicle wars will look like a picnic because there was still a semblance of querubic innocence amid the chaos.

I’m sure, many of us could only muster enough smile to understand how petty life back then. That such event was a natural consequence of things when different characters are lumped in one small office atop the SV Building.

We ought to learn from it. It will be doubly troubling if we haven’t ’til this time.

[ # 4489 ] Comment from AJ007 [October 13, 2008, 5:06 am]

Thanks for the enlightening words Kuya Mashur,

I just want you to know that I respect you, and I look up to you as an alumni.

And it is true, I learned something, and the hard lessons that I ‘ve learned during that time EB 1999-2000 is unmatched with the experiences after that. Or it could be that I have not moved that far. Or it could be that I learned that early.

Much that the fiecest beast would attack up front, my companions in that batch bit me from behind.

Moshe Dayan once said: “The handwriting is on the wall.”

The things I suffered during the time and after that was insurmountable. If you knew how I tried to collect myself and pushed on to graduate.

They set me to this path…
