Suddenly It's Magic lead star Erich Gonzales is the New Standard of Asian Beauty!

I had been so lucky to be a part of the recent blogger's conference for Suddenly It's Magic. This new Thai-Filipino romantic comedy film offering by Star Cinema will be shown this October 31, 2012. Starring Thai actor Mario Maurer and Filipina actress Erich Gonzales, directed by Rory Quintos.
The bloggers had the chance to chit-chat with Erich about the movie. When she arrived, I learned that she just celebrated her birthday last Sept. 20! All of us even sang a quick happy birthday song for her! :) This was Erich's 2nd blog-con since Corazon Ang Unang Aswang. I was not part of the first one, so this is the first time I ever had a personal encounter with her. I like Erich, honestly I love her team up with Enchong Dee since Katorse. I have known her since Star Circle Quest where she emerged. I really find her as a great actress.

Avid Liongoren a Filipino Artist from Outer Space!

"I exist to create different things to relate to different people." 
-Avid Liongoren

This is a pure personal blog post, not a promo, not a press release, not an event.

AVID LIONGOREN.. visual artiste extraordinaire, mmm.. where and when did I first heard his name? Ah! I kinda remember, it was with Yeng Constantino's music video for Time In, which if I'm not mistaken, was around 2007.

I don't know Avid personally but I totally admire his works, whenever I see one, I was totally wowed. Everytime. So I decided to feature a quick taste of his works here in my blog, to show appreciation in his own works of art.

Avid is an illustrator (he draws mostly monsters and weird looking creatures but it's totally amusing) and a director, mostly of TV ads, animations, feaure/short films and of course, music videos. Talking about creativity eh?!

On his illustrations and "dorwings", I wanted you to see for yourself so I will feature 3 of them, randomly picked, because I am totally having a hard time to pick a favorite!

A part of his project 365 in 2007 (06-05-07)

Gloc-9 MKNM (Mga Kwento Ng Makata) - poetry and music fusion!

I am a true blooded rock music lover. I love rock, but not too hardcore. I love bands. I love the sound of guitars and drums together. Hiphop and rap is not my thing. But, there is one rapper who already got me hooked in his music since I first heard his song "Simpleng Tao". Yes, GLOC-9!
Rap is his game and he's so good at it. Now Gloc-9 is the leading premiere rapper of the Philippines! After 5 successful albums, he is still on track now with his newly released 6th album MKNM (Mga Kwento ng Makata) this time under Universal Records. Gloc-9 is proud of this new record and even said that it took him six months to work on it. He is ultimately satisfied with the album which includes collaborations with some of the greatest acts in the Philippine music scene like Chito Miranda, Bamboo, Ebe Dancel, Jay Durias, Billy Crawford, Cathy Go, etc. Gloc-9 is thankful to Universal Records and said that he is looking forward to do more projects with his new label. Universal Records, on the other hand, claimed that they are proud of Gloc-9 because aside from his own successful album, he is a part of the BIG success of two other album releases that's on the charts from Parokya ni Edgar and Noel Cabangon, which he collaborated with.

John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo as JD and Sari in THE MISTRESS!


Great love comes with hope. – The Mistress
A film directed by no other than Olivia M. Lamasan 
from Star Cinema that's coming soon in theaters near you this September 12, 2012.

In celebration of 10 successful years of being on-screen partners, John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo, is now up with a more aggressive and brave big movie project for all their loyal supporters.  Opening them both to more mature roles, The Mistress tackles sensitive family issues about love and fidelity. Olivia Lamasan said that looking back 10 years ago, she was actually one of the people who formed the John Lloyd-Bea tandem which made her so excited about doing this film. Way back then, the two was already oozing with chemistry. No doubt, that pairing them up was a great decision because they are one of the best love teams around. Even their team up is mainly on-screen and not to the extent of being a real life couple; JLC and Bea's working relationship as two of the main brilliant actors of our generation is enough to get a strong grip of thousands and thousands of supporters across the country. Both of them admits that their partnership helped in molding their showbiz career as years go by. This movie project only makes a statement: The John Lloyd - Bea tandem is here to stay, more stronger than ever. A big hooray to their long time fanatics! :)

Parokya ni Edgar: Inuman Sessions Volume 2 out now!

Parokya ni Edgar has been around the music industry for almost 20 years now, earning them fame and countless hit songs. A true OPM icon, the band consists of Gab, Dindin, Darius, Buwi, Vinci and Chito is holding on strong, having the original 6 members all through the years. When asked on what is keeping the band solid, Chito said that they simply love what they do "Hindi kami mga musikero" Chito explained, "Gusto lang naming mag-banda". It's hard to keep up with a great career in the local music industry for 20 long years! But Parokya ni Edgar's witty, funny, honest and catchy music made it easy for the band to have a tight grip from listeners of different generations. "Kung mapapansin nyo yung mga kanta namin, based on experiences lang talaga.", Chito said that their sound is what they can offer and they don't have a plan in changing their kind of music. I'm sure that their fans and supporters are happy for it.
Now, as a follow-up to the phenomenal hit album Inuman Sessions Vol.1.. eight years ago, the band released the aptly titled Inuman Sessions Vol.2, under Universal Records in CD only and DVD with bonus CD formats.

Bwakaw: In theaters September 5!

The Cinemalaya Box Office Hit BWAKAW is set for commercial release this September 5, 2012 (Wednesday) on all leading cinemas!

Bwakaw is an indie film directed by Jun Robles Lana, co-produced by Cinemalaya, Tony Tuviera, and TV5 but will be distributed on mainstream by Star Cinema.

Before we go to the movie itself, let me just brag some on Bwakaw's achievement in the concluded Cinemalaya 2012 awards. They bagged the "Audience Choice", "NETPAC (Network for the Promotion of Asian Cinema) Award", and the "Best Actor" for Eddie Garcia. It also earned nods from globally renowned movie fests including the Toronto International Film Festival and New York Film Festival. No doubt that the movie was rated ‘A’ by the Cinema Evalution Board (CEB). Truly, a film that has a lot to be proud of.
