Good times with Mo (Sept. 22, 2008)

Woohoo! My man Mo Twister is back and boy was he back with a vengeance… The show was hilarious, very entertaining and I had a good laugh listening to the show… Time just seems to fly when you’re having fun!

On to the show’s highlights:

Edward Cullen

As is normal during the early part of the show, most of the talk centered on rather “safe” topics… Mainly I think because of the younger callers listening to the show on their way to school…

I just noticed a recurring theme on the show, it seems that the trio keeps going back to the topic of the Twilight series and its devastatingly handsome but bloodthirsty hero, Edward Cullen… The movie version of this vampire novel aimed at young adults is set to be shown this November with Robert Pattinson playing the role of Edward Cullen… Coincidentally, Robert also played the role of another very handsome fictional character, Cedric Diggory of Harry Potter and the Goblet of Fire… Hmmm, Robert seems to be typecast in this “devastatingly handsome” roles… That must be a nice problem to have… πŸ™‚

A caller chimed in that he thought Daniel Radcliffe or Shia LaBouf would be perfect for the role of Edward Cullen… Mojo and Mo disagreed, saying those two guys were “ugly”, hehe… I’m sure a lot of Harry Potter fans would disagree…

Adidas Jacket controversy

A rather unfortunate thing happened recently… Apparently, a government representative has asked Adidas to cease and desist from production of the much sought after Adidas Philippine flag jacket which I’ve been admiring for quite some time now… It’s been pretty much unavailable for quite a while now (sold out) and now its value has just risen sky high…

The reason cited by the Adidas representative interviewed by Mo was that there is a Philippine law regulating the use of the Philippine flag and other national heraldic symbols… And Adidas’ use of it in their clothing line wasn’t “approved”…

Mo raised a good point that in other countries like England, you pretty much see the Union Jack in all sorts of things like bikinis and thongs… I think the Adidas jacket was in very good taste and pretty much says “I’m proud to be Pinoy!”…

What’s your take on this?

Grace Lee, Filipino or Korean?

A caller named Grace, called in and expressed her dislike for her namesake’s use of the terms “we” or “us” when identifying herself with Filipinos… Grace Lee normally freely uses terms like “we Filipinos” to make a point or it just happens naturally in the course of conversation… Whilst being a full blooded Korean and being born in Korea, Grace has lived most of her life here in the Philippines…

Grace’s (the caller) premise for her argument was that legally, either one or both of your parents have to be a Filipino for you to be qualified as a Filipino… Well that argument just effectively deletes half of the Philippine population with pure Chinese, Japanese, Korean or whatever ancestry they may have who consider themselves as Filipinos…

Mojo is an American citizen (of Filipino parentage) and Mo is of half Indian, half Filipino descent… I believe that amongst the three Grace is the most Filipino in terms of traits, Filipino speaking skills and even mannerisms… Regardless, they’re all very proud of their Filipino heritage and are undoubtedly very patriotic…

Just my opinion, but I truly believe that being Filipino is what’s in your heart and not what a piece of paper says… Just my take…

What about you, my dear readers? Chime in with your opinions below…

Oh by the way, the gold medal winner of the last Beijing Olympics in the demonstration sport of wushu, is of pure Chinese descent and is unfortunately named Willie Wang… Mo just couldn’t resist getting that one in… πŸ™‚

Hottest Celebrity Showdown (KC Concepcion vs. Angelica Panganiban)

I thought this match would be much tighter but KC just blew Angelica out of the water… Mo opined that while both these hotties are just one cheeseburger away from putting on 20 pounds, at this point they’re at the peak of their hotness and are both drop dead gorgeous…

Grace Lee went with Angelica, Mojo went with Angelica but later rescinded his vote and went with KC… Miguel went with Angelica but the callers and texters, almost 90% went with KC… My man Mo went with KC as well…

After a shaky start, KC runs away with this one…

Next up, the BIG ONE… KC vs. Anne… Yeah, I know what you’re thinking… this one’s rigged in favor of Anne, hehehe… We’ll see…

Marimar audition clip

The Youtube clip you’re seeing above is an old audition tape showing the biggest GMA stars auditioning for the role of Marimar after Angel Locsin left the station for rival ABS-CBN… It was apparently leaked by a GMA insider and posted on Youtube…

It’s amusing to see the two would-be mothers auditioning for the show, Jennylyn Mercado and Camille Pratts… All the big names were there, Rhiann Ramos, Nancy Castiglione, Katrina Halili and of course, eventual Marimar winner, Marian Rivera… Check it out…

Of sagging breasts and gays over 30

Mo proposed a theory that gays over 30 are officially useless and are basically over the hill, hehe… With Mojo’s 30th birthday coming up, he got some good natured ribbing from Mo about how his “whoring” life is over… Pretty harsh Mo, pretty harsh… πŸ™‚

Oh and yeah, Mo’s predicting that Grace will have sagging breasts just like her Grandma who had to literally pick them up off the floor… Not with Dr. Vicky Belo just a phone call away, counters Grace… Too funny!

Accountants wanted in Africa

A caller phoned in with regards to job openings in Africa for accountants… So if you’re a CPA and want to earn in dollars, up to USD2,000.00 per month according to the caller… Dial this number 09178656534… By the way, you must have a valid passport and the offer is in the Republic of Congo and Mali

Nope it’s not a joke, the company’s name is La Plata…

Look it up first before deciding… That’s my public service message for the day! πŸ™‚

Till next time, I’m out of here…

Good times!

Good times without Mo (Sept. 18, 2008)

My man Mo Twister was still in Hong Kong so it was Good times without Mo for the second straight day…

Still, I appreciate the efforts of Mojo and Grace Lee to keep the show as entertaining as possible… I know that they receive a lot of flak from the texters that the show sucks whenever Mo’s not around but from what I heard the past two days, they’re getting better at carrying the show whenever Mr. Twister isn’t around…

Admittedly, there are some stretches of the show wherein it does get quite droll but overall it has gotten better… Perhaps a little more preparation and research is all that’s needed on the part of Mojo and Grace to bring the show to a higher level…

Anyway, on to the show’s highlights…

Liposuction and Reductil

In a seeming continuation of the previous day’s discussions about Mojo threatening to blow up to elephantine proportions, there was quite an extensive discussion on the merits of liposuction and other weight reducing options like the slimming pill “Reductil”…

A number of callers chimed in with their prescriptions for weight loss including Chinese medications and Bangkok pills… Quite dangerous if you ask me… I’ve never seen Mojo in person but from what I’ve seen he’s really not even borderline obese… Although Mo loves to mess with him and we fans just lap it up, hehe…

Snatching

A caller who went to visit the station yesterday (For Top 5 at 5), had his necklace snatched along the same elevated walkway where a technician of one of Magic 89.9’s sister stations got killed last year…

Poor guy, one of the bystanders who happened to witness the incident even laughed at him… tsk tsk…

Maybe we’ve become too inured to crime that we just take it all in stride… 😦

Of course, the police was basically useless in situations like these… Another thing we take in stride… 😦

Lucifer calling

A caller who I think was trying to enliven the show called up and introduced himself as Lucifer or Lucio for short, hehe… Funny thing, he was trying to be funny but his parody of a demonic showbiz reporter wasn’t that funny… I think he was trying to channel Mo’s favorite showbiz reporter, Cristy F*ck*n Fermin…

His joke’s punchline depended on a word which both Mojo and Grace couldn’t understand… Sulsultant? The joke just went over Mojo and Grace’s head…

The only thing funny about the caller was his accent (which he claimed was Italian)… Mojo’s take on his accent? Count Dracula with a Visayan accent (think Annabelle Rama)… πŸ™‚

Edward Cullen and Twilight

Speaking of vampires, Grace is currently obsessed with reading the Twilight series which we wrote about in a previous blog… Edward Cullen, the hero of the series is her dream boyfriend, hehe…

Mojo piped in that the good thing about having a vampire boyfriend for Grace is that she’ll get to stay out of the sun… another Grace Lee obsession… πŸ™‚

Made up words

Mojo came up with words which he made up and I quote:

NEGA – defined as feeling negative about a certain situation… Example: Hay, the texters are all so nasty, I’m feeling NEGA na… πŸ™‚

BELOFY – defined as enhancing or improving a person’s appearance through the cosmetic magic of Dr. Vicky Belo… Example: My tummy is so fat na from eating all that steak, I need to BELOFY my tummy na…

See? The show wasn’t that bad, right? At least you learned two new words, eh?

Up next, Tuesday’s episode of the Good Times show on Studio 23…

Till then, I’m out of here…

Good times!
