~Lumayo ka nga sa akin by Bob Ong~

Bob Ong did it again! This time he criticized and chided the Philippine television variety shows, game shows, dramas, soap operas, reality shows and even the movies. What made me love this book so much was the fact that I could totally relate (once again) to the author’s expostulations and reprehensions about the status of the Philippine movie and TV industry nowadays.

How dismaying it is that what used to be enjoyable and something that is a source of Filipino pride became nothing but a laughingstock and shallow entertainment for idiots? Of course all these ‘kajologs-an‘ and ‘kabaduy-an’ are part of the Filipino culture and humor but whatever happened to the arts? Where did the producers’ and writers’ artistic and creative minds go? Why is imitation and piracy the ‘in’ thing when we can have the most talented and skilled minds if we just put them together. 😦 I think this book is an eye-opener not just for someone like me who’d rather watch Korean, Japanese and Hollywood TV and movies over my own country’s. It made me realize WHY I never watch Philippine TV in the first place. -.- The abundance of stereotypical characters and generic plots coupled with lame acting from second-rate young stars who are either a product of a talent search or some goddamn reality show on TV are just too frustrating and even disturbing. AND extremely eye-roll-worthy. 

I finished this book in like 4 hours and THAT is a record for me since I never finish anything in a day. ^^ I guess the long trip back home from Manila yesterday did something to my brain cells. Haha. Or maybe coz I didn’t have any distractions – like the Internet – to keep me from reading nonstop. 😀

This is probably one of his best works, IMO, and my second fave next to “Abnkkbsnplako”.

A tumblr a day makes the blues and the greens go away~

Ok. So I know I wasn’t supposed to post any of my fangirlism stuff over here… unless they are THAT important. ^^;;;

But I’ve been feeling moody/gloomy/crappy lately and THIS just made my day. ^____^

I don’t own the pics coz I just found them on someone’s TUMBLR… But I do own the RIGHT to fawn over these PYTs. :))))

Of course, my reaction to that is… THIS.

The things I find on tumblr just makes my day. Although there are still some dumb sh*t here and there… majority of the stuff are quite entertaining and enjoyable. 🙂

Here are some more LOL pictures on the TUMBLR side of the world. ^^

*raises hand* ME ME ME! ^__^

I can so relate to this! Well… except for the underwear dancing part. 😄 Yeah. That pretty much sums up my personality. Haha. *raises hand* HELL YEAH! ^^ I’d reblog this on tumblr… IF I have one. 😄 YES. I’m so guilty of this. ALL the time. -__-

YES. I'm so guilty of this. kekeke. ALL THE TIME. ^^This is me. It pretty much sums up my personality. :)))))Oh yes I do. Definitely. Just hearing the word TALK makes me shiver. 😄

And of course…this is the initial reaction whenever I do my fangirl thingy around people who are, let’s say, NOOBS, when it comes to fangirlism…
