COKE LANG SYEMPRE!

Spot the similarity of these three TVC which are all current and big in Philippine TV.

video video video


Okay, as if its not obvious, all three concepts bank on the use of hand symbols/gestures/sign to amplify respective solid messages.Based on my somewhat reliable store of industry knowledge, this advertising element is used to create a bandwagon. Its for the aim of transcending beyond mere TV spots. Remember other Coke campaigns which were like crazy games in the streets? That's a classic example of bandwagon success.

Hmmm, I wonder what could be a good Menace sign...

NOT A BOY TOY - 4th Realization


I have a lot of girl friends and just recently, I learned that most of my girl friends’ boyfriends are having this idea that their girlfriends are giving much more special attention towards me. Jealous boyfriends make me fell weird. I was really surprised and I find it hard now figuring out how to deal with these guys once we set faces again. It went a little too over the top when my friends won’t inform their boyfriends that I’m with them every time we go out – what is this crap?


And then, a friend gave her opinion on this issue- “Im surprised as well! Hindi naman si Denis yung type na pang-romance.” And what is this another crap? I don’t know what to feel- flattery or annoyance? Then again, maybe this is really how I presented myself- always the “friend”. Oh well, actually I have this cool relationship with all of my girl friends from grade school to college. It’s a little truthful but hey its still jolting.


So, maybe Im no hot guy, eye candy or a head turner. Maybe I’m the easy to get with, well-articulated, humor-glossed guy. Maybe Im not the real boy toy. Maybe I have to deal with the fact that Im treated all the time as “the friend”. Whether this is good or bad, all i care is that i maintain good relationships with people who make my life a little bit interesting.

MY HUMPS- ALANIS MORISSETTE

I know this video is so last season, but I find it worthy to be part of this blog. I find it a novelty for Alanis Morissette to exude sense of humor and well, some sleaze.

Here’s Fergie’s “My Humps” as done by Alanis Morissette.

ERASERHEADS CONCERT AT SM MALL OF ASIA

After the much talked about Reunion concert of the Eraserheads which was cut short last year due to lead man Ely Buendia’s sudden heart failure, talks have been spreading that another show shall be staged to continue the harvest for this great momentum. And so a press conference was done in Bonifacio Highstreet attended by the complete intrada of the band- Ely buendia, Raimund Marasigan, Buddy Zabala, and Marcus Adoro. A full packed press flashed into the scene.

March 7, 2009 at SM Mall of Asia Concert Grounds- Yes! The details are already well formed and people must be informed. MTV Philippines who saved last year’s almost stopped reunion concert partnered with telecom network giant Smart to dish out this repeat concert. Ely is positive to finish the set (15-16 songs) all throughout until the closing song, as he is inspired by Francis Magalona who is currently structuring an album while undergoing chemotherapy.

The latest commercial of Mc Donald’s which made use of the band’s somewhat flagship song “Huling El Bimbo” created much presence and nostalgia which all accorded pleasantly towards the nearing concert date. True to Ely’s statement in the press con, Eraserheads songs speak directly to the heart.

Concert title is still on brainstorming stage, but the band is contemplating on “Final Set” or “Eraserheads Live”. Fans are also encouraged to get in touch with MTV to throw in title suggestions.

What to expect with this repeat concert?

“Tugtugan lang... We bring in the Music and the Noise” – Eraserheads.

Ticket prices:

VIP – PHP 5,000

Gold – PHP 3,000

Silver – PHP 1,300

Bronze – PHP 300

B*TCHES - Third Realization

BITCH



Bitch! April exclaimed after a lady in the train pushed her. I told her people at our back are annoyingly noisy, it’s like they own the train. Once again she told me that they could be a crowd of bitches. April doesn’t own a bad mouth. She’s on a dilemma learning her friend is in a really bad situation. I have been thinking about this thought for a long time, and it was somewhat defined- Bitches are everywhere.

Some of us may find the term cool. We may even use it to illustrate a feisty attitude or a fierce moment orchestrated by someone. In contrast, we all know that a bitch is naturally bad. The connotation for the term has never been true blue cool. I had my share of different encounters wherein I silently shouted just within myself the word “bitch” to calm myself down from a very bad situation.

I would narrate my stories without defining gender. That would appear biased.

Bitch on the road. I once offered this old lady a seat in the bus because one, she’s having a hard time and two, I hate seeing an old lady standing. When I stood up, a bitch immediately took my seat and the lady just smiled at me and said “it’s okay dear”. The bitch did not show any sign of appreciation and sat there like nothing really happened. I thought it was really unbelievable.

Normal is bitch too. Unlike our common characterization of bitches, some commoners can put on the act too. Say a sales person tired of working. You would approach one to ask for assistance or information and all you’d get is a stiff face and a one word answer. Not that I rally for the “my money provides your salary” thing, but I believe this kind of job requires a bit of enthusiasm right?

Nature can be a bitch too. Imagine commuting while there is a thunder storm. Imagine all the mud in your shoes. Imagine wet umbrellas being forced in your skin because vehicles are all too tight. No, i wont blame mother nature, but why does some thunder storms are way too destructive? Another bitch is time. I have been running against or for it for quite a long time. And mind you, I never win. Why should time exist? Why should everything be set with Time limit? Like why should there be length for movies? An hour for a massage? A minute or two for a kid’s little Ferris wheel? A day to meet someone dear to you? A month of vacation? Why should there be an idea of time constraint? They said no team really lose a basketball game, they just ran out short of time.

Would you blame me if I consider time a bitch?

FROM WIKIPEDIA:

Bitch, a term for the female of a canine species in general, is frequently used as a term for a malicious, spiteful, domineering, intrusive, or unpleasant person, especially a woman. This second meaning has been in use since around 1400.[1] When used to describe a male, it may also confer the meaning of "subordinate", especially to another male, as in prison. Generally, this term is used to indicate that the person is acting outside the confines of their gender roles, such as when women are assertive or aggressive, or when men are passive or servile. More recent variants of bitch are bitchy, ill-tempered (1925), and to bitch, to complain (1930).[1]

PANIC AT THE DISCO - NORTHERN DOWNPOUR

Here's my current most favored song. I dont know, but I was surprised upon knowing that Panic At The Disco was the band who record it. Its not their genre. But then again, its cool to be unpredictable and erratic. Well, everyone i hope you'll like this song too with its great melody and yes again, poetically crafted lines.

here they are, Panic At the Disco. Northern Downpour!

If all our life is but a dream
Fantastic posing greed, then we should feed our jewelry to the sea.

For diamonds do appear to be
Just like broken glass to me.

And then she said she can`t believe
Genius only comes along in storms of fabled foreign tongues.

Tripping eyes and flooded lungs
Northern downpour sends its' love.

Hey moon please forget to fall down
Hey moon don`t you go down
Sugar cane in the easy morning
Weathervanes my, one and lonely.

The ink is running toward the page
It's chasing off the days
Look back at boat feet and that winding knee
I missed your skin when you were east
You clicked your heels and wished for me

Through playful lips made of yarn
That fragile Capricorn unraveled words like moths upon old scarves
I know the world's a broken bone
But melt your headaches, call it home

Hey moon please forget to fall down
Hey moon don`t you go down

Sugar cane in the easy morning
Weathervanes my one and lonely

Sugar cane in the easy morning
Weathervanes my one and only

Sugarcane, in, the easy morning
Weathervanes, my, one and lonely

Sugarcane (Hey moon, hey moon, hey moon) in the easy morning
Weathervanes (Hey moon, hey moon, hey moon) my, one and lonely x2

Sugarcane, in, the easy morning
(Hey moon please forget to fall down. Hey moon don't you go down.)
Weathervanes, my, one and lonely
Sugarcane, in, the easy morning
(You are at the top of my lungs. Drawn to, the ones who never yawn.)
Weathervanes, my, one and lonely. 2X

Opps, I forgot to acknowledge that yesterday's post was actually my 300th. Technically, this would be the 301st, but I just need to let you know that I actually managed to bring in 300 articles in a span of a year and some months of being here in the blogging domain. So here's a toast to my continuous effort to bring my life into the public eye, He He He. Hey, I said toast! Why aren't you cheering? Bastards.

More: Thanks blogspot! and to my finger-counted readers! Smile...

INSPIRATIONAL TALK IN OPRAH WINFREY SHOW

It’s one of my past times to daydream. But now that I rarely have free time, day dreaming has been put to bay. Now, my boss showed me this video of Dr. Randy Pausch – a brilliant man who made his last lecture at the Oprah Winfrey Show. To whom did he dedicate the lecture? Go on and hit play. It’s worth your ten minutes I assure you.

Edged some perspective right?

Now, my appetite for dreaming is salivating again.
