Another super delayed blog post by yours truly… Sorry guys, I’m on the road right now on a business trip which is basically the reason for the delay. I hope you guys aren’t too pissed… πŸ™‚

It was a super funny show today but extremely difficult to blog particularly the last part of the show as Mo talked about a section I couldn’t keep up with… Read on for the details…

Death in the family

The show started on a rather somber note as a caller phoned in to reach out to Mo and the gang as he had recently lost his mother… The caller was on the verge of tears as he related the suddeness of the passing of his Mom due to cardiac arrest…

Ron, the caller, imparted a little message to the listeners asking them to never hesitate to hug their loved ones and say “I love you”.

While Mo was sympathetic, he did play “Too little, too late” by Jojo after the call… πŸ™‚

Time wasters

My man Mo Twister, the inveterate Internet researcher that he is, recommended some additional time wasters for our browser’s bookmarks… πŸ™‚

  1. http://www.ruinedphotos.com – Have you ever had a photo opportunity you thought was just perfect? Only to find out after viewing the photo that some idiot in the background totally ruined it for you. That’s the premise of this website and I’ll have to say, the photos on this site are hi-larious… πŸ™‚
  2. http://totalylookslike.com – Another time waster but will assuredly make you go… “Oo nga ano…” is this site… It has a catalogue of pictures submitted by the readers on the subject of look alikes… From people, to animals to things… These side by side photos will make you do a doubletake and ask yourself if these guys were separated at birth… πŸ™‚

Check out these sites, they’ll make sure your time spent on the net is even longer, hehe…

Best GF in the world

It’s now official, Grace Lee is the best girlfriend in the world… The reason? She trusts her boyfriend so much that she allows him to go to girly bars like Pegasus while he’s here in the country (probably to bars in Korea too)… They also have an arrangement wherein she said that she would understand if he was ever tempted into infidelity just as long as she didn’t know about it….

Damn, Grace! I wish all girls were like you, hehe…

Her boyfriend is like James Bond, 007, License to Cheat…

Now you can’t get a cushier deal than that, guys!

When do you get married?

A caller phoned in for some advice regarding his bestfriend’s plan to get married… He thinks that his friend and his girl aren’t emotionally and financially ready for marriage…

Mo said that if they aren’t ready then don’t get married… Plain and simple… Being married and not being financially ready is a big strain on the relationship and could result in a breakup…

This generated a lot of debate from Mojo and the callers who were of the opposite view…

I have one theory though, the caller sounded really gay and methinks he may have an ulterior motive as to why he’s asking for this advice… Perhaps he wanted the “friend” for himself… πŸ™‚

Damn, I’m starting to think like Mo, hehe…

Condometrics

Whew, my man Mo has really been spending too much time on the internet when he can research about the latest and greatest breakthroughs in prophylactics… That’s condoms for you and me…

Introducing CONDOMETRICS – Condometric is the first prophylactic that measures and shows off the penis’ length. Condometric helps us flaunt what we’ve got. It’s about believing we can handle whatever we wish to take on, regardless of size.

Geez, check it out on their website

6 countries with badass anthems

Regular listeners of the Good Time Show will undoubtedly know about Mo’s fascination with flags and other symbols of heraldry of various countries… He’s even got a Philippine flag tatoo…

Now of course, a nation cannot exist without its flag and anthem as it proclaims its identity, its pride and liberty… Mo did some research again and came up with the 6 most badass lyrics from the national anthems of these countries…

Coming in at No. 6 is Algeria with their National Anthem called “The Pledge”

We are soldiers in revolt for truth
And we have fought for our independence.
When we spoke, nobody listened to us,
So we have taken the noise of gunpowder as our rhythm
And the sound of machine guns as our melody

At No. 5 is Italy… Yes, the land of pizza and pasta apparently has a violent streak as well… read on…

Mercenary swords
Are feeble reeds,
And the Austrian eagle
Has lost his plumes.
This eagle that drunk the blood
of Italy and Poland,
togheter with the Cossack,
But this has burned his gut
Let us gather in legions,
Ready to die!
Italy has called!

No. 4 is Hungary… The land of the Magyars and paprika apparently are a bit on the bloodthirsty side as well:

Castle stood, now a heap of stones
Happiness and joy fluttered,
Groans of death, weeping
Now sound in their place.
And Ah! Freedom does not bloom
From the blood of the dead,
Torturous slavery’s tears fall
From the burning eyes of the orphans!

No. 3 is Turkey… Ruffa’s husband came from this land and you can probably guess why they’ve broken up…

For only then, shall my fatigued tombstone, if there is one, prostrate a thousand times in ecstasy,
And tears of fiery blood shall flow out of my every wound,
And my lifeless body shall gush out from the earth like an eternal spirit,
Perhaps only then, shall I peacefully ascend and at long last reach the heavens.
So that our every last drop of blood may finally be blessed and worthy
So ripple and wave like the bright dawning sky, oh thou glorious crescent,

At no. 2 is the land of Charles de Gaulle… Now this song is bloodthirsty in the extreme…. It’s a strong contender for no. 1 in my opinion…

Bloody flag is raised! (repeat)
In the countryside, do you hear
The roaring of these fierce soldiers?
They come right to our arms
To slit the throats of our sons, our friends!

Grab your weapons, citizens!
Form your batallions!
Let us march! Let us march!
May impure blood
Water our fields!

And finally, the bloodiest anthem of all, from the land of the Vietcong and the girls who just love to say… “I love you long time!”, Vietnam:

Our flag, red with the blood of victory, bears the spirit of our country
The distant rumbling of the guns mingles with our marching song.
The path to glory passes over the bodies of our foes.

Celebrity appearances

Tis the season to be jolly and with it comes X’mas parties… As is customary in X’mas parties, particularly for large companies, they invite celebrities to host, sing a song or just look pretty or handsome as the case may be…

My man Mo, in typical fashion did a survey amongst, A-list and non-A-list celebrities to see how much it will cost you if you wanted to have them over for your birthday, a X’mas party or anything else you might want to throw just to flaunt to the world how filthy rich you are… πŸ™‚

We’ll start with the bottom feeders first and progress upwards… πŸ™‚

For celebrities:

  1. Jon Lapuz – P50K
  2. Iwa Moto – P80K… Hmmm, I wonder? πŸ‘Ώ
  3. Isabel Oli – P100K
  4. Tim Yap – P150K… that’s a lot of coke… πŸ™‚
  5. Ruffa Mae – P200K
  6. Diether Ocampo – P200K
  7. Dingdong Dantes – P250K

For singers/bands:

  1. Kamikaze – P180K
  2. Parokya ni Edgar – P220K
  3. Bamboo – P250K
  4. Gary V – P750K up to a cool P1M
  5. Eraserheads – P10M and up!!!

Darn, I knew I was in the wrong business… 😦

Foreign phrases that could get you in trouble

This is where everything went downhill for me, hehe…. I couldn’t keep up with Mo’s foreign phrases and their equivalent meanings and I just gave up and laughed and just listened… You could probably check out Tonting’s recordings and just laugh like I did…

Great, great show today…

Exceptional performance from Mo, Mojo and Grace Lee…

Till next time… Ooops, by the way, tomorrow’s blog will likely be delayed as well as I’ll probably be busy the whole day… Check back in the afternoon or evenings if you’re still craving to read my regular dose of vomitus… πŸ™‚

Good times!

Good times with Mo (Oct. 22, 2008)

Posted in Most Recent Posts with tags , , , , , , , , on October 22, 2008 by Benj
John Travolta - Stayin Alive!

John Travolta - Stayin Alive!

The show today barely coasted along but in a true testament to Mo’s talent, he still managed to make the show entertaining… And of course Grace Lee was there to help things along…

What screwed up Mo’s plans for today’s show was Ruffa Mae Quinto’s no-show… Mo had planned the show around Ruffa Mae with questions on the Celebrity Trivia segment plus a round of Forbidden Questions… I’m sure Peachy would have been a great subject…

Although, according to Mo she apologized and promised to be there next week to do the show with them… Hopefully, Forbidden Questions with Ruffa Mae Quinto? Yeah man!

Now on to the show’s highlights:

Chiz Escudero vs. Bamboo

A caller phoned in recalling Bamboo’s out of this world performance of the hit song “Himala” and promptly asked Grace that considering the similarity in features between Chiz and Bamboo, who she would prefer, Chiz or Bamboo…

Grace unequivocally picked Chiz… I guess she really did mean it when she said “I LOVE YOU CHIZ ESCUDERO”.

Angelina’s breastfeeding photos

Mo shared the news that pictures of Angelina breastfeeding her new baby, taken by her partner, Brad Pitt, were now available online on Mo’s favorite celebrity website, www.egotastic.com.

The photos, taken in black and white and somewhat grainy were sold to W Magazine with the proceeds of the sale going to charity…

It’s not like we haven’t seen Angelina naked before (Original Sin, anyone?) but she still has some decent pulling power… πŸ™‚

Hmmm, I want some milk!

Bacon power

I didn’t know this bit of trivia but apparently my man Mo is in love with those little pieces of thinly sliced and perfectly seasoned pork taken from Ms. Piggy’s belly called “bacon”… πŸ™‚

He loves it so much that he listed a number of ridiculous things he would do for a bowl of perfectly cooked bacon, including cutting off his left arm, hehe…

The callers chimed in with their own lists of things they’d be willing to give up for bacon… It ranged from the sublime to the ridiculous and everything else in between…

I love bacon but cutting off my left arm for it? No frigging way! Imagine doing your business in the restroom with one hand only? πŸ™‚

Himala Replay

Mo replayed the portion of yesterday’s show when Bamboo sang “Himala”… It was awesome then and it was awesome today… Goosebumps, hehe…

Mo said he’ll put up the recording on the show’s multiply site… Check it out…

CPR to the tune of Stayin Alive

I read about this article a few days ago and I thought that it was strangely apt for the procedure of CPR…Β  And no, it’s not a hoax, there is a proven scientific study which states that doctors or paramedics who use the song “Stayin Alive” by the Bee Gees helped keep them within the ideal threshold of 100 compressions per minute in order to increase the chances of reviving a victim…

For the less optimistic first aid practitioner, Queen’s “Another one bites the dust” also helps keep the same beat… πŸ™‚

Check out the article here

Virginity for sale

A lot of today’s discussions were derived from that indispensable research tool, the Internet… Mo shared the story of a 22 year old student who was selling her virginity on the internet… According to the news article, the girl (who really isn’t that hot) had gotten bids of up to US$3.8M for her virginity…

This just confirms my theory about high priced paintings and well, expensive hymens… People will pay huge sums for something “unattainable” or for exclusivity… Geez, for US$3.8M I’d do just about anything, hehe…

Damn, but that’s one expensive hymen!

Celebrity Trivia

Too bad Ruffa Mae Quinto wasn’t on the show, she’s one of my favorite comediennes and she does have a drop dead gorgeous body…Β  It would have been too funny…

Just to remind us of what could have been, Mo played a series of clips from his favorite celebrity trivia interviews…

Ruffa Mae Quinto

Mo: Who’s the African American candidate running as President of USA?

Ruffa Mae: Hindi si McCain, yung isa… [Thinks for 2 minutes]

Mo: It’s Barack Obama

Ruffa Mae: Yun nga, si Obama nga… McCain kasi ako, hehe…

Christine Reyes

Mo: What does UN stand for?

Christine: Errr… United Nations…

Mo: Correct!

Jay-R

Mo: Who is on the 500 peso bill?

Jay-R: That’s funny coz that guy looks just like my Uncle, but I don’t know his name…

Mo: It’s Ninoy Aquino…

I’m seriously disappointed Jay-R… You missed Ninoy?

Ruffa Mae Quinto

Mo: What is a valedictorian?

Ruffa Mae: An honor student?

Mo: What kind of honor student?

Ruffa Mae: Hindi ko alam eh… Di naman ako nag-college…

Wow… she missed that one…. They stop giving out valedictorian awards in college, my dear…

Forgetful girl

A caller phoned in regarding the topic of multiple partners and she said that her boyfriend who’s supposedly a good looking dude had a lot of partners prior to her, around 25 or so… She’s also been around the block with 15 or so but for the life of her she couldn’t remember the exact number, hehe…

Her dilemma was that her boyfriend wasn’t down with her having had a lot of experience… Talk about double standards, hehe…

However what stood out for Mo was the fact that the girl couldn’t remember the number of men she’d been to bed with… It shattered one of his dearly held beliefs that females “remember” every man they’ve slept with…

The caller said that some men were just “forgettable”… Ouch!

First boyfriend at 37

To wrap up the show, a caller related a story of how his 38 year old wife and he got together (he’s only 24)… He was very proud of the fact that he married his wife when she was still a virgin… A couple more years and she’d have starred in the movie “The 40 year old virgin”…. πŸ™‚

Great story though and good luck to the caller and their new baby…

Well that’s the show for today…

Hope you had fun reading…

Till next time!

Good times!

Bamboo Concert on Good times with Mo (Oct. 21, 2008)

Woohoo! A free concert by Bamboo on our favorite morning radio show, Good Times with Mo… This is part of Mo’s extended birthday celebration and as any true fan knows, Bamboo is Mo’s man crush so this is a big deal for my man Mo…

This will be a relatively short blog as the show was mostly Bamboo singing the latest songs from their new album “Tomorrow becomes yesterday”…

Read on:

Andi9 and Grace Lee centerfolds

Andi9 was on hand to join Mo and Grace during the first part of the show and she shared the news that she and Grace Lee were both offered to do cover shots for an unnamed men’s magazine… Grace has decided to say “No” to the offer but Andi9 hasn’t made up her mind at this point…

Oh come on Grace, don’t be such a killjoy, hehe…

My guess is that either MAXIM or FHM is pursuing them for the cover shoot… Mo was encouraging them to do it because as he said, they’re both young, pretty and with gorgeous bodies.

I agree with Mo 100% on this one… Go for it Andi and Grace!

I think Grace and Andi’s main fear is that they’ll be jackoff material once they do the cover shoot… I know that Andi’s parents won’t like it but Andi’s a grown woman and she should decide on whether she really wants to do it…

There is still hope though… Andi said that she’ll consider doing it if she and Grace were to be offered to do the cover together… Come on FHM and Maxim, what are you waiting for? Do a double shoot, it’s twice the fun and I’ll be first in line to buy my copy… πŸ™‚

Caller from Africa

It continues to amaze me that fans who are in various parts of the world continue to tune in to our favorite radio show and even wake up at odd hours just for the opportunity to listen to the show…

A perfect example is a seasman who is based on a ship sailing around Africa who listens to the show on his laptop and took the opportunity to phone in to the show and give his two cents…

Now that’s what I call dedication! Kudos to you and our other brave men on ships sailing around the world…

Chris Brown

Hiphop and R&B artist Chris Brown called the show to promote his upcoming concert with scorching hot singer Rihanna (who just happens to be his girlfriend) this coming November 16.

It was an interesting interview with Chris being pretty articulate and Mo doing his usual excellent job during the interview…

Chris talked about his music, his career at this point (he’s only 19), collaboration with other artists, wearing bling and splurging and of course, the upcoming concert with Rihanna.

Bamboo in concert

One of my favorite Pinoy rakistas, Bamboo, was on hand to greet our birthday boy, “Happy Birthday” and make his day just so much more special…

Bamboo together with his bandmates, Ira Cruz on guitars, Nathan Azarcon on bass, Vic Mercado on drums put together an awesome show singing songs from their new album “Tomorrow Becomes Yesterday” and my favorite OPM song as well as Mo’s, “Himala”.

Although it was still early in the morning and there were several technical glitches, Bamboo kicked ass with the able support of his bandmates…

His rendition of HIMALA was awe-inspiring and I just listened in my car and allowed the lyrics, the melodies and the music to wash over me… Damn, I’m waxing poetic again, hehe…

As you know, Bamboo is Mo’s man crush and he seemed kind of nervous during the early part of the show when he was interviewing Bamboo… Grace was giddy, hehe… Maybe because Bamboo reminded her of Chiz Escudero, hehe…

Check out Bamboo’s new album out in record stores right now and for more info on Bamboo and his band, head on over to their official website http://bamboo.com.ph. By the way, the site’s design is excellent! One of the better site designs amongst Pinoy artists…

I wonder when he and Rico Blanco will have a reunion concert together with the other Rivermaya members…

Now, I’d pay serious dough to see that concert!

Till next time, I’m out of here…

Good times!

T’was a pretty laid back show today but I still found myself grinning from ear to ear particularly from caller Bea… She’s one funny girl… Getting ahead of myself again though…

Just read on and find out why:

Barack Obama vs. John McCain

With the US presidential election just a few weeks away, a caller asked Mo his opinion on the hotly contested race… Mo thinks that Obama will bury McCain with an avalanche of votes, in other words, he’ll win by a landslide… I hope so too, I like Barack… He’s very charismatic and he seems to have a solid plan for the US economy which impacts our own economy as well which is why I’m so interested in the results of their election…

And let’s face it, McCain is old, 72 years old… I mean, he’s positively ancient… Admittedly, he seems a bit spry for his age but his ideas are as old as he is which means his management style would probably be old school as well…

Go Barack!

Fees, fees and more fees

There was a topic raised by a caller regarding yesterday’s topic on tips, fees and other stupid charges… Mojo raised an interesting point about Meralco’s charges for system losses… I’m sure you’ve heard about this what with Juday espousing the Lopez’ propaganda on this barefaced highway robbery… I mean, being asked to pay for electricity theft and other power losses? How is that my problem?

A student from my alma mater called in and lamented the fact that parking fees are so high at UST… I couldn’t relate coz I rode the jeepney when I was still at UST… Mo asked him about the perennial flooding in Espana in front of UST and how students are often stranded in school and have to spend the night there… That happened to me quite often when I was still studying there… Oh and the stories about students getting the jiggy on while stranded overnight? Never happened to me unfortunately, hehe…

Food poisoning

A caller phoned in to ask if he could bring some food to the station and Mo started thinking that it’d be so easy to get rid of them by poisoning their food… The reason being is that they gobble down food brought by fans, food outlets and other people without a second thought…

Grace and Mojo said not to give the listeners any ideas, hehe…

Nah, who’d do that other than Mojo trying to get back at Mo? πŸ™‚

The Vermin suspended

My man Mo got an early birthday present with the news that The Vermin, The Despicable One, Satan’s Offspring and she with the other lovely nicknames has been suspended indefinitely from The Buzz…

Woohoo! Mo sure got a kick out of that one… It almost topped the fact that Bamboo is going to have a birthday concert for him on the show next Tuesday…

Grace mentioned the fact that Brian Gorrell put up on his blog my post on an imaginary guesting The Vermin did for the Forbidden Questions of GTWM…

Check it out here

Bamboo!

Speaking of Bamboo, my man Mo gave us the scoop yesterday evening that indeed, Bamboo will be holding a concert on the Good times show this coming Tuesday…

That’s a big deal coz you never hear Bamboo doing a concert on any radio show…

Can’t wait for that and I do hope he sings HIMALA… Mo, start begging…

Who’s the oldest virgin out there?

Mo tried to revive the topic of the 105 year old virgin which I blogged about before by asking the callers to chime in and admit on air if they’re still a virgin…

I thought that there’d be a ton of callers claiming to be virgins with probably a lot of posers as well but, surprise, surprise, not a single caller gave their two cents…

So what does that tell you? No more virgins under the age of 16 in the Philippines? I really think they’re losing it earlier and earlier…

What do you guys think?

Geoff and Tisha

Geoff Rodriguez and Tisha Silang were on hand to promote The Amazing Race Asia as the Philippine representative to this around the world race… Last season they had Marc Nelson and Rovilson Fernandez as the Philippine representative and they sure kicked ass, winning almost every leg of the race but unfortunately getting screwed by flags in the final leg…

Geoff (aka Michael Scofield) and Tisha are doing well so far but they can’t disclose any information outside of what’s currently showing on TV coz they’ll get penalized a whopping US$5,000,000.00Β  Yup, that many zeroes… πŸ™‚

I like them though I haven’t seen all the episodes, I like their chemistry and I do hope they kick ass and romp off with the US$100,000.00 grand prize…

Good luck!

Wang Power Part 2

Remember Bea, the girl who was dating the loser with the anaconda stuffed down his pants? Well she called again today and she was dumped by her boyfriend who unfortunately heard her on air and dropped her like a hot potato…

I can empathize but realistically speaking that’s the best thing that could have happened to her… She’s young and there are just so many wangs out there! Maybe not quite as long…

I was laughing at Mo’s advice to her… “Buy a cucumber or something”… “I’ll introduce you to two African American friends I know…”

Geoff was more poetic… “Love is not measured by inches, or in this case meters or feet”

A ton of horndogs started texting in asking for the girl’s number, hehe… Boys will be boys!

Sports shows and hot girls

Finally, Mo talked about sports shows and the resident eye candy you can find on these shows… He said that he never even looked at the girls and was just interested in the box scores…

Another thing is the presence of hot girls at car shows and showrooms… He said that he wasn’t interested in the girls, just the car’s spec sheet… Hmmm, well can’t you do both Mo? πŸ™‚

By the way, don’t forget to watch Mo’s show on ANC this coming Sunday at 8PM, it’s called iMO (In My Opinion with Mo Twister)… Damn good show last time… Mo in a different light (or at least during part of the show!)

Till next time, I’m out of here…

Good times!
