Let me just say that it is a singular honor for my blog and a milestone indeed that the great Mo Twister would choose this venue to give us the scoop on Wednesday’s much anticipated edition of Forbidden Questions.

Mo posted a comment on my blog about last Thursday’s show with Adel Tamano and I quote verbatim:

“just wanted to keep you guys updated on the happenings. today on the show, i announced that we might bring forbidden questions out of the grave one time just for ol’ time sake. so, im going to agree to do it this wed. however, this segment has gotten us into deep trouble in the past, and in the near future (likely the end of this month) i will begin serving the latter portion of a suspension i was given cuz of the variety of things that have been said during forbidden question. but no worries, i will take the time to go to italy and watch coldplay (this is your cue to get jealous).

i want to keep my promise so i contacted a celebrity to guest on forbidden questions this wed. il give you clues on who it is but i cant say it cuz i people found out they will try to contact that celeb an talk them out of it…thats how it used to be.

heres the clue: SHE was an ex of aga muhlach.


Whilst the Forbidden Questions segment of the Good Times show is such a favorite of mine and it may have been the reason why the Good times show became so famous or infamous (depending on whom you ask), if the price to pay for our indulgence is the suspension of Professor Mo then I’d rather we make do without it.

But as my man Mo says, he’s bringing it back for an encore… Just one last time for old times sake…


On the positive side, Mo gets to go on vacation in Italy to watch Coldplay in concert… Damn, we’re not jealous Mo, we’re envious, hahaha… Seriously, have fun in Italy and don’t forget to take pics of the beautiful Italian scenery and more importantly the bellissimas… 🙂

Now on to the Forbidden Questions… Who do you think is the guest on Wednesday’s edition of Forbidden Questions? Despite the clue, it’s still anybody’s guess… Aga’s been linked to so many women in the past… Hmmm, my guess is Janice de Belen… What about you? Please leave your guesses below… Let’s have a contest and the winner gets a prize consisting of two front row tickets to the Alicia Keys concert courtesy of Mo Twister… 🙂

Let the guessing game begin! 🙂

Till then, I’m out of here…

Good times!

Good Times with Adel Tamano (Sept. 4, 2008)

Posted in Most Recent Posts with tags , , , , on September 4, 2008 by Benj

Today’s edition of Good Times had a political theme with the United Opposition’s spokesperson Adel Tamano as the show’s special guest.

If his last name is familiar, that’s because he is the son of the late senator, Mamintal “Mike” Tamano.

The young and good looking Harvard educated lawyer is also a regular listener of the show or Ka-Goodtimes, hehe…

Very articulate and obviously highly intelligent, he discoursed on a wide variety of topics including his advocacy, his role in the opposition, his work as an educator (he is PLM’s president), his religion (Islam) and his general outlook on life.

His candidness was refreshing even when faced with seemingly “tough” questions from the show’s listeners. He freely admitted that the opposition had sinned in the past and that the important thing is to move forward and learn from its past mistakes.

A number of callers wanted him to run for President in 2010 but he’s not eligible to run because of this age. The minimum age to file a candidacy for president is 40. He must have impressed a number of callers because most of the feedback was positive.

I also liked his choice for President in the US Presidential elections. He’s rooting for Barack Obama… Yeah! Go Barack! 🙂

He is indeed someone to look out for in the years to come. Definitely presidential timber… 🙂

You can check out his blog for more of his writings including the commencement speech he made when he graduated from Harvard Law School.

Now on to some good news:

My man Mo Twister is definitely looking to bring back our favorite Forbidden Questions next week! Woohoo! I’ve missed that portion of the show, it was something worth waking up early for every Wednesdays on the Good times show…

If it pushes through, I’ll definitely post the transcript here or even better, a recording of the show you can download… Watch out for it here… 🙂

I’ll blog about Tuesday’s episode of the Good Times show on Studio 23 later in the day. Check back later… It was their surfing episode in Zambales… Our man Mo got hurt on the show… ouch… I’ll share it with you later…

Till then, I’m out of here…

Good times!
