1st pinoy superhero in komiks

The very first Pinoy komiks superheroes appeared in 1946, right at the birth of the Philippine comics industry. Incidentally, that year also marked the independence of the Philippines from the United States, after surviving the destructive three-year Japanese Occupation.

After the war, a few enterprising individuals started the very first komiks-magazines in the Philippines: Halakhak Komiks and Pilipino Komiks. Although Halakhak Komiks did not contain any serious superhero story, it had, on the other hand, a Pinoy funny superhero called Siopawman, created by a young cartoonist named Larry Alcala. Siopawman by Larry Alcala may be the first, albeit fumbling, Pinoy komiks superhero.

the bucket list

This would be my first time writing about a movie, and I don’t even know if it’s showing now or if it’s not. Just finished watching it in my ever reliable DVD player, ofcourse knowing me and my budget the dvd is fake. And so… so what… I aint the only one you know.

Well that’s not the reason why I wrote this, I just want to recommend this movie to you. Yes you, the one who is reading this right now.  Ofcourse I am pertaining to you, who else would I be talking to. It is a story of friendship, life and how to accept death in a different perspective. I dare not tell you the plot of the story for it will ruin your curiousness, but I tell you this, it is a moving story and surely you would love it as I did. Have I told you that it stars two of my fave actors, Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman. So why are you still there? Go on and watch this movie… a must see.

a tribute to Heath…

I’m not good at future planning. I don’t plan at all. I don’t know what I’m doing tomorrow. I don’t have a day planner and I don’t have a diary. I completely live in the now, not in the past, not in the future.                    Heath Ledger

Heath Ledger, 28, was found dead Tuesday of a possible drug overdose in a Lower

Manhattan apartment. Ledger was found naked and unresponsive, facedown on the floor

at the foot of his bed by a housekeeper trying to wake him for an appointment with a

masseuse. Heath Ledger as you all knew was the actor of the award winning movie

Brokeback mountain, I never watched it though. I don’t know the reason why maybe I’m

not into this kind of movies but I’ve watched The Patriot, A knights tale, and 10 things I

hate about you. And his latest movie is The Dark Knight, a Batman sequel, which he

played the role of Joker.

eat bulaga!

Eat Bulaga! is the longest-running noon-time variety show on Philippine television produced by the Television And Production Exponents Inc. (TAPE) of Malou Fagar and Tony Tuviera . It also holds the Philippine record of all-time number of live TV episodes. It is aired six days a week on early afternoons. The studio is located in Broadway Centrum, New Manila, Quezon City (near San Juan, Metro Manila).
Eat Bulaga premiered on July 30, 1979 on Radio Philippines Network (RPN9)  at Broadcast City, Diliman, Quezon City. RPN outsourced the idea to TAPE. At that time, comic troika Tito Sotto, Vic Sotto and Joey de Leon were the most popular movie comedians. They were hired together with Chiqui Hollman and Richie Reyes (a.k.a. Richie d’ Horsie) as co-hosts. Eat Bulaga defunct 22 noontime shows from different stations and from different eras. I even ate a cornick named Eat Bulaga when I was little. Eat Bulaga is considered by many as an institution because they have made many big stars out of many newcomers such as Aiza Seguerra, sexbomb and more, and also because it has been identified as a Filipino way of life.

the original theme song

Mula Aparri Hanggang Jolo
Saan ka man ay halina tayo
Isang libo’t Isang tuwa
Buong bansa. .. Eat Bulaga
Sina Tito, Vic at Joey
Kasama pati si Coney
Silang apat ay nagbibigay250px-image1231-0151gma_7.jpg
Ligaya sa ating buhay
Buong bansa ay nagkakaisa
Sa tuwa’t saya na aming dala
Isang libo’t isang tuwa
Buong bansa. .. Eat Bulaga!
