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. – 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. – 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…


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!

Rico Blanco Concert on Good Times!

Wow! I’m still at a loss for words after listening to today’s episode… I won’t go into the details of the other topics that were discussed on today’s edition of Good Times with Mo, it pales in comparison with Rico’s performance on the show… I’m sure my man Mo Twister will agree…

I’m not the biggest fan of Rico Blanco to be perfectly honest… I’m more of an Eheads fan… That changed after today’s show, I would consider myself a true Rico Blanco convert… I was blown away by his artistry on the show.Β  I wasn’t the only one either, our favorite trio was speechless most of the time after a performance or when Rico broke into song in the middle of their conversation…

Though visibly strained because he was under the weather and it was still relatively early in the morning and his vocal chords haven’t fully opened, his performance was without exaggeration, mesmerizing…

He sang several songs from his new album, Yugto, and he discoursed on a variety of topics, from his departure from Rivermaya, his philantrophic work, his early years and his dream band.

A true artist, he dabbles in photography and painting and he is a prodigious songwriter… According to him, during his hiatus from the musical scene, he wrote up to 5 songs a day! Now that’s talent…

What interested me particularly was his philantrophic work and his outlook on politics… When asked about his political views and which candidate he might support in the 2010 presidential elections, he mentioned BF (Bayani Fernando) whom the Good Times crew hosted a few weeks back… He said we needed a doer or a manager and I totally agree, but BF? Those BF posters I see everyday on my way to work and the “stupid” elevated U-Turn in C-5 just doesn’t sit very well with me… In any event, whomever we elect in 2010 can’t be worse than what we have right now… 😦

Finally, he rendered the carrier single of his new album, Yugto, acoustic version. Never before performed in acoustic, according to Rico, but that was no hindrance… He was mindblowingly good… You can dowload the file here… File courtesy of blog reader Zaren…

I arrived at the parking lot and listened… His performance resonated with me and he established a true connection with me, across the miles of static, his song touched me… A true artistic genius, Mr. Rico Blanco…

DAMN, I’m waxing poetic… πŸ˜›

I’m going to go out and buy his album, the guy was that good… I would suggest you guys do the same… Go and buy the original please… πŸ™‚

Excellent episode as always…

I’m out of here…

Good times!
