Mother’s Day Musings

Happy Mother’s Day to all moms! To them I dedicate the following song, “Bohemian Rhapsody” by Queen.

Mama, just killed a man.
Put a gun against his head,
Pulled my trigger, now he’s dead.
Mama, life has just begun.
But now I’ve gone and thrown it all away.
Mama, oo-hoo-hoo!
Didn’t mean to make you cry.
If I’m not back again this time tomorrow,
Carry on, carry on
As if nothing really matters.

A gigabyte is bigger than a megabyte which is bigger than a kilobyte. So if Sharon is the Megastar, then is KC Cuneta the Kilostar? And who would qualify as the Gigastar? Then again, Sharon is also a Kilostar—as in lots and lots of kilos. And her husband can be the Kikostar.

* * * * *

There’s a song that RX93.1 currently plays (I often hear it played when I’m driving to work) by a certain DJ House. Or at least that’s what I think Chico & Delamar said one time (they almost never credit that song before or after they play it). I don’t even know the title of the song. It’s house music featuring snippets of dialogue from what seems to be an old Pinoy B-movie. Correction: an old Pinoy ST-movie. They’re the kind made in the late 70s and early 80s, back when the movie industry was trying to push the boundaries of the Marcos regime’s censorship laws.

The dialogue features a guy and a girl talking. The guy sounds suspiciously like the late Dindo Fernando during his ST years (I suppose projects were scarce and he accepted all these pa-suave DOM roles). While the girl reminds me of Deborah Sun or Azenith Briones in Joey Goseingfiao’s camp classic, Temptation Island. The girl sounds mataray all throughout the conversation but it’s obvious she’s flirting, while the guy is pa-suabe at modulated ang boses all throughout, as if nothing can throw him off. Their dialogue goes something like this:

GIRL: O, ano?! Ano’ng ginagawa mo rito?
GUY: I was looking for you.
GIRL: O, bakit?
GUY: Puwede ba tayong mag-usap?
GIRL: Sure! Saan mo gusto?
GUY: Sa lugar na malamig at tahimik.
GIRL: Tapos?
GUY: Well…! We’ll just take it from there. We can have dinner, listen to some music. Puwedeng sa loob ng bahay.
GIRL: Which part of the house? The bedroom?

Then the DJ repeats the line “The bedroom?” again and again like an echo, to hilarious effect. Then at the end of the song the music abruptly stops and the last lines are:

GIRL: (still mataray) Magdala ka ng sarili mong pajama.
GUY: (still pa-suave) Gud! I’ll buy one.

I tried looking for it in Limewire but no such luck. If someone knows how to get a copy, please tell me.

Hi McVie! The song you're referring to is entitled "O Ano?!" by DJ House. It's the most irritating song on earth!

"Sharon is also a Kilostar—as in lots and lots of kilos."

Hahaha. Evil ka talaga.
BENJIE: Ewan ko ha, pero when I heard it instead of getting irritated I found it hilarious. Maybe that's because the dialogue reminds me of those 70s Pinoy movies that I used to see on afternoon TV in my oh-so-distant youth.
the woman is gloria diaz(? yung unang miss universe yata)

the video features cut ups of the movie and jojo a dancing all the way!

i kinda find it interesting that filipinos are now attempting these kinds of musical experiments. sa anong demographic kaya pumapatok ang kanta(?)/music na ito? will it be imported to other countries? hehehe

XANDER: Leche! Saan mo napanood ang video?!
saan pa?!?!?

sa myx: your choice, your music!

di ko alam kung pinapalabas na rin sya sa mtv. mukhang exclusive sa myx so far kasi may tag na "first seen on..."

Sa Myx nga sya, this is the vid with Dindo Fernando on it, and yes, Gloria Diaz. And a very ewww looking Jojo A. dancing all over the place.
