Guilty pleasure: Listening to Toni Gonzaga’s Catch Me I’m Fallin

Toni’s face, to me, is not well-defined. This may be the reason why I don’t easily get tired of seeing her and until now, can’t resist noticing her presence.

I’m not a fan of her but I get to see her appearances once in a while. The last one I saw was her You Got Me movie with Zanjoe Marudo and Sam Milby. Here you can see the action star side of Toni. She did execute the stunts very well (or her stunt double?) and her portrayal good enough for me to finish the entire film.

Here’s Catch Me I’m Fallin. Great vocals. It just repeats over and over in my mind. I like the song, not the video. We need to improve something in our music video making. They have to realize that shooting it in a set with the artist singing in different made-up backdrops doesn’t work always.


Cueshe review before I found them unlikable

Now they suck. Their musical greatness just deteriorated over the past two years. If you’re an artist, don’t do it for the masses or record companies. Experiment. Reinvent. Do it for the love of making music and not for album sales.

Cueshé’s Half Empty, Half Full

Subsequent to the emergence of South Border and Freestyle comes another addition to the roster of discovered artists down south. Cueshé’s (pronounced as q-shay) career jumpstarted in Cebu doing several gigs around Visayas and Mindanao until they decided to penetrate the metropolis’ music scene.

Originally named as Green Horn, the band formed during the late 90s with its remaining members Michael Manaloto on drums, lead guitarist Jovan Mabini, and bassist Fritz Labrado. It later became Cueshé in 2000, derived from their post-rehearsal craving banana cue and former “she” vocalist Dhee Francisco. Jay Justiniani (vocals) joined the group after meeting their manager while Jhunjie Dosdos (keyboards) is acquainted with Fritz. Completing the line up after auditioning is Ruben Caballero (vocals and guitar).

Reality, Drama and Comedy in Super Rookie

The only Koreanovela or TV show im watching at the moment without forcing myself to like it.

There’s something in this series that made me a follower. Its funny at times even if it doesn’t intends to make you laugh and the scene’s mood is serious. Definitely won’t bore you.

Super Rookie, dubbed in Filipino language, airs on QTV Channel 11 every Saturday and Sunday, 1pm.

Take a peek at some Super Rookie’s episodes


Director / Writer: Byron Bryant
Cast: Ronnie Lazaro, Pen Medina, Elizabeth Oropesa

I’ve been renting VCDs at Video City lately. Need some inspiration for my future plan.

Thought the theme was simple- issues encountered by the people living in a barrio and how they were connected by a videoke machine. Until it went hardcore in the second CD because of their demonstration against quarrying operation.

I’m not a film expert, but how come Baryoke won Best Cinematography in Cinemalaya when some scenes are not very visible?

Did I say the director finished Electronics and Communication Engineering at the university where i graduated?
