PG SPINS: Darren Hayes’ “Casey”

January 29, 2008

I love this song! Probably the best song from his epic 25-track album This Delicate Thing We’ve Made. And it’s getting a single release! Astig. Eto, the video just premiered a couple of days ago. Give it a listen.

If you guys dug Savage Garden’s Affirmation… well, this song sounds like it coulda just as well been part of that album… so you’ll like it a lot. Beri niiice!


Born: 1985, Age: 32

January 26, 2008

I feel like I’ve aged 10 years… just this month.

Something’s different. I don’t know what. I DO feel different though. And people seem to be noticing.

Yesterday, someone commented… “Mukha ka nang mama!” (as in “para, mama!” not mama = mom)

Then today, someone said to me… “Wow, you’re all grown up. I’m so proud of you!” — referring to a career decision I just made — then following it up saying, “Ambilis ah! (mag-act on the decision) Akala ko matagal pa before mo gawin.  (something to that effect) ‘Di ka pa naman marrying age ah… wala ka namang biological clock!”

I don’t know. Weird…

Not that it’s bad. But is it good?

I’ve probably had too much Ginseng Coffee… and not enough Chico & Delamar.

PG TV: BEST.AUDITION.EVER (And He’s Pinoy)

January 18, 2008

Haha! You guys watched American Idol tonight? Well if you didn’t, you probably missed the single most entertaining audition ever on Idol. Yes. EVER! And he’s Filipino — Renaldo Lapuz.

NOT the best singer, not by any means. But he was just so sincere with his audition and his song… he was a hit with the judges, and now, with the whole internet universe. Haha! I mean they’re selling merchandise off of his audition already… shirts, mugs, caps, etc.

Seriously, this guy’s gonna be huge! Bigger than Kelly or Carrie! Haha. Well, maybe not. But he sure PWNS William Hung!

Eto… be sure to watch the whole thing… as in hanggang dulo!

“I have a horrible feeling that’s gonna be a hit record…” – Simon Cowell


Sweeney… zzzzzzz… Todd

January 17, 2008

I fell asleep.

And no, not that I found the movie boring. It was actually really good… at least, judging from like the 40 minutes of it that I saw. Johnny-Helena-Tim is da sh*t! I really just couldn’t fight the urge to shut my eyes and doze off, as I didn’t get much sleep last night.

But hey, maybe it’s a blessing in disguise. ‘Cos the projection in that cinema was crappy… the sound too. Maybe that’s also why I couldn’t help sleeping. And I promised myself I’d watch this movie at a THX. So yeah. C’mon guys, let’s… G4!


PG SPINS: Katharine McPhee’s “Each Other”

January 13, 2008

Yeh I’m a fan. Yeh, she owns me.

This is probably my favorite off her debut. It’s a real nice slow jam. Too bad her music didn’t get much attention last year. Very underrated. This video is an acoustic performance of the song… brought to you by Rhapsody! (plugging) Haha.

Just thought I’d share this ‘cos the blog’s been getting stale… and I haven’t been in the mood to update much, or write anything lately. Plus, how cool is it that my first post this year’s about Kat. Might bode well for me and me luv. Ugh, Kat… call off your engagement! NOW!

 BTW, Happy New Year guys! Let’s all have a great ’08!
