About me…

Leopard skin discus

Leopard skin discus

Due to numerous requests (*ahem*) from the growing readership of my blog, I’ve decided to put in a bit more information about myself but, unfortunately, I will have to maintain my anonymity. Well, for now, at least… πŸ™‚

As I stated previously, I’m a typical Pinoy who just loves listening to Magic 89.9’s morning show Good Times with Mo! I’ve been a fan since early 2006 when the show first aired…

I work full time in a multinational company somewhere in Eastwood…

That’s also the reason why I sometimes cannot catch the whole show but I do try my very best to absorb as much of the show as I can so that consequently I can blog as accurately as possible about the happenings on our favorite radio show… Not an easy task when you’ re driving and grinning like an idiot half of the time… πŸ™‚

Although this is my first blog, I’ve always been fond of writing and exercising whatever little creative faculties I may have…

I’m very surprised and also very pleased that a majority of my readers seem to enjoy the crap that I put out there on a daily basis… Even more significantly, that my favorite radio hosts have taken the time to read my blog and actually promote it on the Good times show… Thank you, it’s very heartwarming… You have excellent taste! πŸ™‚

I’ve also been asked as to the meaning of my handle, Pinoydiscus… Well the Pinoy part I hope I don’t have to explain… Discus are freshwater fish, rather flat ones but very colorful, which originated from the Amazon river and I used to be particularly fond of raising them in planted aquariums, hence the name… And NO, contrary to rumors, that’s NOT my real picture… πŸ™‚

Oh by the way, before I ramble on, if the name Pinoydiscus seems too formal when you’re addressing me in the comments section, you can call me Benj… You may contact me through my email at pinoydiscus@gmail.com… πŸ™‚

I do welcome comments and criticisms (but I won’t promise NOT to delete them), so fire away!

Good Times!

    Thanks Lyanne, so nice of you to drop by and check out my blog…
    Yeah, I’m a great fan of the show ever since its inception…

    The reason why I came up with this blog is precisely to share my thoughts on the show and to find out what other listeners thought of the day’s episode… πŸ™‚

    If the readers like it, it’s indeed a bonus for me…

    I studied at UST and thank you for the compliments…

    Don’t worry, I’ll keep on posting anything and everything about the good times show as much as I can…


    Good times!

  3. heard grace promoting your blog this morning. galing, thinking to put this up. sometimes sa dami ng magagandang topic na pinaguusapan sa show, sarap to refresh it later during the day. and you do blog about a lot of what was aired. dont get tired! πŸ™‚
    ps where can i get the ebook version of the twilight?

  4. Pinoydiscus Says:

    Hi Kathie,

    Thanks for reading my blog and I’m glad you liked it… πŸ™‚
    I posted the ebook version of the Twilight series in my next post so feel free to download it…


    Good times!

  5. hello! i’m also a regular listener of this show. i find it hilarious and destressing. there are times though that i miss some shows. it’s nice that i’ve discovered your site. i’m linking this in my multiply account. keep it up! πŸ™‚

  6. great blog! brief and concise – well written πŸ™‚ thanks for writing about the most famous radio show in the country. i love listening to the discussions; and the trio’s inputs are really interesting and fun. i miss them when we don’t go to the studio or listen to the whole program on radio.

    thank you also for your nice words about my son, miguel πŸ™‚ we are deeply touched by your comments.

    keep on writing about the show πŸ™‚ i think u’ll make some dough on writing if u’ll do this professionally….although i.t.’s a more lucrative career hehehe!

  7. Pinoydiscus Says:

    Thanks Marou, I really appreciate you taking the time to read my blog… Well I guess this blog is kind of my way of letting loose some creative juices…

    You must be very proud of your son, he’s becoming quite the celebrity… I wish you both well and I’m sure that Miguel is truly on his way to a great future in broadcasting…

    Give my regards to Miguel… πŸ™‚

    Good times!

  8. Finally, a blog that makes sense and has the same spunk as our favorite morning show! This is really great! I especially love the fact that I can come here and read the highlights of the show (or parts of it that) I missed. Bravo!

    They made mention of your blog again today… kudos to you! Can I link this site to my one? It’s not as good as (nowhere near!) this one but I’m trying. πŸ™‚ Also to my Facebook and Multiply accounts?

    Your Fan at First Sight…

  9. Pinoydiscus Says:

    Hi Marie,

    Wow! A fan! Next thing you know I’ll have groupies… πŸ™‚ Which isn’t such a bad thing, come to think of it… Just kidding…

    Thanks Marie… I’m flattered…

    I’ll check out your blog and leave a comment…

    By all means, link away… πŸ™‚

    Good times!

  10. Oh my gosh i think I work with Marie, see Pinoydiscus, you are attracting a people of the same lot, employed, pretty, smart, and sexy…=)

  11. oh darn, unable to edit here

  12. Congratulations Pinoydiscus! I don’t have to tell you (but I will anyway) but your little creative faculties are really drawing us in. πŸ™‚
    I love reading your stuff.
    Also, Kai IS my work pal and we love your site!

  13. Hi Marie and Kai,

    I’m glad that you guys are enjoying the read… Just keep checking back now and again and I’ll try to keep the blog updated as often as possible…

    Good times!


  14. “.. grinning like an idiot half of the time… ”

    Haha! We’re on the same page here. I board public vehicles going to the office while listening to our fave show and as much as we try to control it, we grin almost all of the time. And those people keep on giving me strange looks. Haha!

    Great blog Benj. Keep it up.

    As always, good times!

  15. what is the website where I can find Jessica Simpson and Vanessa Hudgens whorephotos? is it β€œegotestes”.com?

  16. Errr… Hi Dwight,

    I’m not sure if you’re being funny but your comment had me cracking up, hehehe…

    It’s not “egotestes.com” but rather “egotastic.com”…

    Good one, Dwight… ROTFLMAO


  17. OMG… Dwight! “egotestes.com” ? Fun-ny! πŸ˜€ I don’t care if you meant to write this or it was a mistake… I’m in stitches laughing about it! I’m at work btw…haha… πŸ˜€

  18. Hey there Benj! (Finally an easier way to address you… hahaha!). πŸ™‚ Needless to say, you can definitely count me in as a fan of yours. Love the way you write and your attention to detail. I’ve said it like a gazillion times already in many posts even through the multiply site… it’s like “re-living” the Goodtimes moment! (or should I say moments?)! And many Goodtimes it is indeed my friend!

    Please continue the great work! Great Times!

    Check out this link:

    Good times!


  23. At last I found this page. πŸ™‚

    Being in IT is a tough job. It requires the longest OT hours one can possibly incur as an employee slash slave. right? I feel you man. Let’s enjoy IT.

  24. Hi benj, I stumbled upon here when the djs talked bout the Boy Abunda fragrance… I’m a new blogger as well and dang wanted to be anonymous also but later on my identity uncovered πŸ˜› say, I’m just plainly intrigued bout bloggers and anonymity how they would want to cloak their identiy.. I have my own personal reason before.. What’s yours πŸ™‚

  25. Hi there Benj,

    I’ve been to your blog a couple of times. I admit that it has a lot of information especially on Goodtimes. I also enjoy the show. I would just like to point out my observation. Mo is one of the most influential people person, as far as radio is concerned, in the country. His views and some radical opinions greatly sway our peoples minds. My point is when Mo expresses his opinion on air, people will start calling ang kissing his ass. I mean some people would just call and then say “Astig pare” you know like the one when he played the Vaclair commercial. Sometimes it’s exagerrated. But don’t get me wrong, I have nothing against Mo. It’s the listeners who call just to kiss his ass. Sometimes it’s too obvious. Again, I want to praise their show for a very well rounded program. It gives so much information in just about anything under the sun.

  26. Benj, Kaibigan, nagpabango ka na ba?, your the Man…. cool billboard by Mr. Boy Abunda. I’m the Pirata from Marikina I don’t know if you’ve heard of me. I’m a regular caller of the Goodtimes. I just heard of your blog from the Master Himself “Mohan Gumatay” to check out the Boy Abunda Billboard on your blog so what will I do? I need to follow my Master….. I love it and from now on I will always read your blog in fact I just add it to my favorites.

  27. Hi Pirata,

    Thank you for the kind words… Of course I’ve heard of you… One of the more entertaining callers of our favorite show… How’s the DVD business? πŸ™‚

    Good times!


  28. Hi Hannah Rika Villasis aka Flair Candy… πŸ™‚

    Well my reasons are mostly work-related and as it is the internet, you never know who’s reading your blog, hehe…

    By the way, I added a link back to your site, I hope you don’t mind…

    Good times!

  29. Hi there Obiwan,

  46. mesmerizedwithgreen Says:

    Hi, I would like to know where I can get podcast of good times with mo. Thanks! Btw, nice blog dude, keep it up:D

  47. Hey mesmerized… I don’t think there’s an official podcast yet of the show although several listeners are recording the show, you might want to check out my “Friends of Good times” links for Jordan’s multiply site and Tonting’s webpage…

    Great times!

    Good times!


  51. Hey Benj! Me and my friend are currently doing a thesis regarding Magic 89.9’s show, Good Times. We are currently using your blog not only as a helpful guide but were also thinking of including it in our reference list. I hope you don’t mind if we ask for your info (name), so we can justly cite your blog. Thanks so much and more power to your Good Times blogging ^^

  52. Hi Luna,

    Congratulations on your thesis in advance, I’m sure that it will rock…
    And thank you for using my blog as a reference for your thesis… However, for reasons I’ve stated above, I really cannot reveal my true identity as it could have repercussions I’m not willing to go through right now…

    What I would suggest is that you just attribute my website and the author’s name as “Benj” sort of like a pseudonym…

    I’m sorry but that’s the best I can do for now…

    I hope you understand…

    Kind regards and good luck on your thesis!
