‘Groundhog Day’
November 24th, 2008 posted by JB under Alumni Stories, Literary. [ Comments: none ]

“So which is it? Groundhog Day or [title of 1993 movie I forget at the moment]?”

My brother, Marvin, winces and makes a face as he surveys the posters. We’re in Glorietta, and this is the summer of 1993. The whole family was supposed to watch a Russian circus, but something had happened and the performance was canceled. And this being the pre-texting and pre-Internet age, we learned about it only when we’re already standing right outside the circus tent.

The circus had pitched their huge yellow tents in an empty lot at the corner of Buendia and Ayala in Makati. In 2008, this lot would be occupied by the RCBC Tower. Not wanting to waste what is an otherwise fun sunny afternoon, somebody suggests we see a movie. So the five of us troop to the nearby mall, then we split – Marvin and I to watch the movie we like, my Father, Mother and my baby sister to go eat somewhere, look at expensive things, and drool.

“This looks fun,” I say, my finger trailing tentatively on the glass case that held Groundhog Day’s poster. It looks Christmas-y: there’s snow, there’s Bill Murray with that sardonic bored-as-hell face, there’s Andie MacDowell who at this point reminds me of my high school crush. “Let’s watch this. Groundhog Day. It’s really funny.”

I have no idea what the movie is about, but I’m choosing it because of the woman in it.

Kelan ba ang Mr. and Ms. Adamson?
November 22nd, 2008 posted by kritiko ng mali under Criticism, Gossip. [ Comments: 3 ]

Na-e-excite na ako para dito. Hindi ako kabilang sa mga lalaban pero ang pagiging kritiko ko ay iiral. Isang bagong kurso ang nakakatuwa sa Adamson. Magastos ito. Siguro alam niyo na kung ano ito. Natatawa ako dahil ang kurso na ito ay ieexpect mo na para sa mga magaganda o guapo dahil dapat sila ay presentable, hindi ko din sinasabi na  dapat  maganda at guapo lamang ang pwedeng pumasok sa kurso na ito.

Pero ang nakakatuwa (nakakatawa na din) ang muse nila ay hindi kagandahan.

Ang aasahan mong itsura ng mga muse syempre ay maganda, pati na din ang ugali. May mga kaibigan ako sa kurso na ito pero sa kanila na din nanggaling ang mga impormasyon. Hindi nila alam kung bakit yun daw ang nanalo. Siguro dahil sa talent portion. Nag-belly dancing daw, marami daw siguro ang naantig sa hubog ng kanyang pangangatawan dahil nakatakip ang kalahati ng kanyang mukha. Natatawa na lang ako. Dahil tuwing makikita ko ang muse na ito ay una kong iniisip ay dehado to lalo na kung alam ng lahat ang tunay niyang ugali. Wala din naman daw laman ang utak nito ayon sa kanyang mga kaklase. Ano na ba ang batayan ng BEAUTY PAGEANT? Wala na nga syang beauty, wala pang brains.

Kilala ko na siya ng personal. Dahil ipinakilala sa akin. Pero simula nung ipinakilala ito sa akin ay hindi ko na muling kinausap, dahil maarte din siya.

Isa lang ang masasabi ko sa batang ito. Wag ka magiinarte dahil hindi ka kagandahan. Iilan lang ba ang may alam na ikaw ay isang muse? Pag nalaman siguro ng lahat na muse ka, malamang madaming magiging tulad ko, na isang kritiko mo!

Clue? Wala, basta bago lang ang kurso ng mukhang bakla na muse na to.

Michael Crichton is dead
November 7th, 2008 posted by JB under Current Events. [ Comments: none ]

I guess there goes Prey II.

Michael Crichton, 66, a writer and filmmaker whose enormously popular and entertaining novels such as “Jurassic Park” and “The Andromeda Strain” explored the limits and consequences of science, and who also created the long-running television medical drama “E.R.,” died of cancer Nov. 4 in Los Angeles.

Mr. Crichton began his literary career as a Harvard University medical student in the late 1960s and parlayed his knowledge of technology, medicine and science into a series of swiftly paced techno-thrillers. He sold more than 150 million books, and more than a dozen films were made from his novels, several with him in the director’s chair.

He made scientific arcana comprehensible to the layman and generated plausible suspense on subjects including deadly alien bacteria (”The Andromeda Strain,” 1969), brain surgery (”The Terminal Man,” 1972), a race of super-apes that guard diamonds (”Congo,” 1980), mysterious underwater spacecraft (”Sphere,” 1987), scientists who play God by cloning dinosaur DNA (”Jurassic Park,” 1990), the military uses of nanotechnology (”Prey,” 2002) and global warming (”State of Fear,” 2004).

At times, Mr. Crichton’s talent for provocative stories thrust him into a national debate. With “State of Fear,” he emerged as a leading skeptic of human-caused global warming and was castigated by environmentalists for hindering legislation to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide. A White House meeting with President Bush, a fan of his books, also alarmed many believers in global warming.

The Day Ku Klux Klan Dread the Most: Obama’s Victory
November 5th, 2008 posted by AJ007 under Adamson Chronicle, Alumni Stories, Opinion. [ Comments: none ]

Mabuhay ka Barrack Obama ! ! !

Personally, I perceive Obama’s victory as a sign of time; that the type casted is now getting a chance to sow change in this corrupt world. And it is a phenomenon that it is happening to the most corrupt of the Western Powers. Does this mean that CIA “bucked” coup d’ tats against nationalist leaders of former Marxist (and still Socialist) states would be a non – existent? Does this mean that assassinations of third world leaders would stop? Does this mean that war would end? Does this mean that the too much hyped up Muslim – Christian war around the globe ends? Does this mean that the oppressed will now break its chains from the sinister power the lords over them?

If thats how the policeman of the word operates? Then we don’t want it.

The Blacks were America’s first victims. We all know how much the Black suffered from White supremacists. History books conveniently yield out the names of Martin Luther King Jr., Malcom X and Medger Evans, all slain in the Southern USA in the height of Klan activity and the movement for civil liberties. Hollywood commercialized the violence in movies like Mississippi Burning, Amistad, A time to Kill etc. There are even novels by John Grisham and Anne Moody depicting gross maltreatment to the Blacks.

The Blacks were labeled with so many slur like niggers, negroes, etc, they’re also exposed to different type of political persecution done through political doubletalk. The attack to healthcare benefits particularly pertaining to cardiac arrest which has a slight over the fact that the Whites get less attention because physiologically Blacks are more prone to heart attack.

A White as Mc Cain is, who couldn’t even distinguish between Sunni and Shiites said in one of this campaign: “he has a funny name” referring to the contender Barack Obama. This Mc Cain said after bragging his military career hinting on another slight on Obama as a draft dodger who converted to Muslim. But that’s beside the point.

With the change that Obama epouses, hopefully, oil monopoly will end too, and that energy distribution will be of a larger scale now. And the “tokamak” technology would prosper to pave the way for a cleaner and more far reaching energy production. Hopefully, stemcell research would continue. Technology tarnsfers would be more open and study grants for scientific advancement would be open.

There are people who aren’t that ready for change. Actually, anti-Obama politicking even reached here, a media outfit that obviously airs Gloria’s crap has one of its worthless newsman feature the US election, as sure as he was US Embassy sponsored, he gave Mc Cain a longer airtime feature.   

Of course there are people that oppose the brand of change that a person like Obama espouses, needless to say they could be racist. Or simply belonging to other political line. Needless to say, the Ku Klux Klan didn’t support Obama.
