You’ll love them even more

Seen TYG? Pwes, mas mamahalin mo ang soundtrack ng pinakabaklang pelikula ng taon. Eto, it’s your chance to see the bands play the songs in person.

Mapapachur-chur-mega-mega[jerjer] ka sa Haphazard. Mapapapunta ka Anywhere sa Roxymmorons [Roxys!].. Mapapaindak ka sa Fuelled ng Gasulina [ang kantang ginamit sa Hiyas ng Pinya 2008] at syempre, magiging artista ka sa Starsick ng Kampai.

I guarantee a very good night of TYG music on Sept 25 sa Club Dredd as they play their beautiful, beautiful, beautiful songs. Plus the songs I used sa film. Kay go na.

Masaya ‘to. Wa char


Bad news

I’m sad (as in may kasamang hagulhol at pagtutulo ng sipon) to inform everyone in Manila that “The ‘Thank You’ Girls” will not be screened in Robinsons Indiesine on Sept. 24-30 as originally scheduled. Pero it’s gonna be shown sometime in October. Still in Indiesine. Kaya medyo matagal-tagal pa ang pagtitiis niyo para maidefine si darkness. Oo. May ganitong pagmomoda ang kamunduhan at hindi ko rin ito maipaliwanag pero konting tiis na lang. Makikita niyo rin ito sa pinilakang tabing. Char.

Inner beauty? It’s a hoax! It’s all faked anyway… The “Thank You” Girls follows a gaggle of drag queens and their entourage on journeys from one small-town “beauty pageant” to the next as they compete for the coveted title “Queen of the Third Kind 2008.” They play the roles of reigning beauty queens, mostly from the “Third World”; it’s curiously warming to reflect that this Miss Zimbabwe would be Robert Mugabe’s worst nightmare. Mommy Paola (aka Virgil) drives the jeepney and takes advantage of the trip to fly-post “Missing Person” notices: he’s trying to find his former lover Carlos, now married. Chris, one of the queens in the back, looks forward to a rendezvous (or is that a showdown?) with the legendary Adora Gracia, due to host one of the pageants. But there’s no real plot to speak of. It’s essentially a road movie.

Charliebebs Gohetia, the editor of Brillante Mendoza’s films, turns director with this deeply Filipino variation on Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. Unlike its prototype, it’s not powered by the emotional highs and lows of melodrama. “Deeply Filipino” means laid-back, resigned, defeated–and yet wonderfully resilient. As in all contests, there are winners and losers: “These gays strive hard and still finish last.” If you know this unique world at first hand, you’ll feel more at home here than in any previous drag-queen movie. If you don’t, you’ll laugh, you’ll gasp, you may even hurl. But you’ll come out a better person.

After a very successful premiere night last Monday, The ‘Thank You’ Girls will be screened in Gaisano Mall, Davao City on Sept 10-16.

Wag na papahuli! Idefine na si darkness!

Sobrang dami na ng durian dito. Season kasi. Ansarap sarap. Better than sex.

On second thought, masarap ang sex.

Maganda ako. Gaganda ako. At mas gaganda pa ako!
