Karate Kid Shower Costume

Karate Kid Shower Costume

Today’s show had a Halloween theme, well sort of, but discussions about sex and other fun stuff never goes out of style… Particularly for our favorite radio show…

Read on for some of the show’s highlights:

Ah’nuld, Stallone and Gollum

Don Puno, nephew of DILG secretary Ronnie Puno and owner of the famous Alchemy bar, was on hand to promote a Halloween event at Alchemy and also to demonstrate his vocal impersonation talents… If you can recall, Mo asked Don to call the show as Stallone on a prank interview some months ago… The guy was so good that for a couple of minutes, Mojo actually thought he was “the” Sylvester Stallone… πŸ™‚

Don also does impersonations of California governor and former Terminator, Arnold Schwarzenegger and Lord of the Ring villain, Gollum… His Gollum is spot on… πŸ™‚

Great job!

Halloween costumes

Speaking of Halloween, Mojo was wondering what Halloween costume he’d wear to the Alchemy party… He was considering going as Storm of X-men… A lot of the callers had hilarious suggestions for Mojo but he ruled out anything involving Spandex coz he doesn’t look good in them, hehe…

I wouldn’t think so Mojo… πŸ™‚

One of the coolest costumes I’ve seen in movies is when Mr. Miyagi made Daniel san a shower costume… Now that’s a cool idea!

Maybe you guys would want to help Mojo out with some costume suggestions…

13 Hottest Dead Girls

Still with the Halloween Theme, Mo went through the list of the 13 Hottest Dead Celebrities according to an article by Spike.com. Never mind if you don’t know some of the names, just read the article and you’ll see their photos and the reason why they were famous… πŸ™‚

13. Lisa “Left Eye” Lopez – The “L” in TLC
12. Jean Harlow – a classic but definitely way before our time…
11. Anna Nicole Smith – blond bombshell who married rich
10. Princess Diana
9. Dorothy Stratten – Who?
8. Selena – shot by the President of her own fan club…
7. Edie Sedgwick- just read the article, hehe
6. Krissy Taylor – oohh lala… Smokin… Ooopss, I sounded like a necrophiliac there for a second…
5. Gia Carangi – watch Angelina Jolie in her biopic “Gia”… She was incredible during her prime!
4. Jayne Mansfield – another blond bombshell
3. Aaliyah – R Kelly’s girl… great singer
2. Sharon Tate – killed by followers of Charles “The Monster” Manson
1. Marilyn Monroe – at Numero Uno, even JFK will agree…

As always, Mo wanted to do a local version… Hmmm who’d you put on that list?

Rihanna Interview

Nothing even remotely Halloweenish about Rihanna, one of my favorite R&B artists… Yes, you read it right, Mo finally got Rihanna on the show albeit at an indecently early hour on the show, around 6:10AM and she called from the airport… Talk about busy…

I liked Rihanna even more after her interview, she had a nice personality and she was fairly articulate considering her age and fame… Mo told her about Mojo’s plan to do the Umbrella dance moves at her concert with Chris Brown… Rihanna was okay with it and said that a lot of her fans do that whenever she sings “Umbrella” at her concerts… πŸ™‚

Tonting will probably have it up later on his site… Check it out if you missed it…

Young house owners

Mo asked the listeners to call in if they already owned a house at a relatively young age and how they did it… He was thinking about it when he was decorating his condo in Eastwood and one of his frustrations was that he still didn’t own his own place…

I think that majority of Filipinos still rent but should seriously think about owning their own place by their 30’s… It’s a good investment and kind of gives you that satisfaction that you own a little piece of the earth, hehe…

Chime in if you have your own interesting story about owning your own place…

Sweet guy

A listener wrote the show to ask Mojo to read a letter on-air to his wife who’s leaving him after 5 years of marriage… He said that his wife no longer laughs at his jokes and she was always giving him the cold shoulder…

The segment reminded me of Joe the Mango’s advice show on radio some years back, hehe…

But the gesture was sweet and I hope the guy and his girl get back together… Good luck!

Secrets part deux

The Share A Secret portion was so successful that callers were offering to share secrets even though they weren’t disussing that topic anymore…

Skank

Lady caller one shared her secret about sleeping with her elder sister’s boyfriend… and her bestfriend’s boyfriend… Whew! For her trouble she got called a skank by Mojo Jojo… πŸ™‚

I thought it was a bit unfair, even granting that she was a skank, Mojo shouldn’t have told her that and just gave her advice or something.

Delayed

Another lady caller was sleeping with 2 guys at the same time and she was “delayed”… Worst thing about it is that she didn’t know who the father was… Mo and Grace advised her to take a pregnancy test and start using protection if she wasn’t pregnant…

Not quite so famous celebrity

Another lady shared a secret that she bore the child of a celebrity who was already married to a beauty queen for 10 years… When prompted to name the celebrity, she didn’t want to give it out on air… The clue she gave was that the celebrity was connected with Bigfish…

Finally, Mo got her to name the celebrity but my man Mo drew a blank, hehe…

Apparently, not an A-lister…

Who do you think the guy is?

Great show as always!

Good times! πŸ™‚

Good Times with Mo (Oct. 27, 2008)

Gandalf the Grey

Gandalf the Grey

Your humble blog just got a mention on the show today… Mo said it best, 60,000+ hits and counting… All thanks to you guys who’ve made this blog a daily habit (well except for weekends, hehe…)

Great show today for the voyeur in all of us… Secrets spilled left and right, they should do this segment more often… Read on for the juicy bits…

Million dollar mistakes

Mo shared an article on cnn.com about spectacularly bad rejections by actors for roles originally offered to them… The two most glaring ones:

Sean Connery was originally offered to play the role of Gandalf in the Lord of the Rings trilogy and he was offered 15% of worldwide gross receipts for the role, a total that would have reached a whopping $400,000,000.00! He turned the role down because he’d never read the J.R.R. Tolkien series and claimed he “didn’t understand the script.”

The role eventually went to Ian McKellen and the rest, as they say is history…

Another bone-headed decision was by actor Will Smith who turned down the opportunity to play NEO in the Matrix trilogy to star in the badly received “Wild Wild West” movie…

However, in an interview with Wired, Smith said, “I would have absolutely messed up ‘The Matrix.’ At that point I wasn’t smart enough as an actor to let the movie be — whereas Keanu was.”

So I guess, all’s well that ends well…Β  πŸ™‚

Kristie Kenney interview

US Ambassador Kristie Kenney was interviewed via phone patch on the show today and she talked about the upcoming presidential elections and the US electoral college.

According to Ambassador Kenney, voters do not, technically, participate in a direct election of the president. They choose “electors”, who are pledged to one or another candidate. This is known as the Electoral College.

Each state has a certain number of electors to the college, based on the size of its population.

In almost every state, the winner of the popular vote gets all the electoral college votes in that state. Because of this system, a candidate can take the White House without winning the popular vote, such as in the 2000 contest between George W Bush and Al Gore.

Strange system, but I guess it’s worked for years and at least they get the election results on the same day, which is more than what I can say for the Philippine electoral system… πŸ™‚

Grace Lee dead drunk

Mo related a funny story about their trip to Hong Kong and Macau… Apparently, our favorite Korean DJ got absolutely plastered during their night out in one of the Macau hotspots… She was so piss drunk, she was puking all over the place and had to be helped to her room by the other lady DJ’s of Magic…

And as is customary when you have drunk people, she was dressed and cleaned up by Andi and the other ladies… Mo’s greatest regret is that they didn’t take a video of Grace being undressed and cleaned up, hehe… I absolutely agree, damn, that would have been one of those “priceless moments”…

Most annoying soundbites on radio

Mo surfed the local radio stations during the weekend and he recorded the most annoying soundbites he could find and he asked the gang, Mojo, Grace and Miguel to pick which one they disliked the most…

Amongst the contenders were:

“Kailangan pa bang i-memorize yan?”

“Hi, pangga!”

Castanets? or whatever annoying sound making device is used by the Boys Night Out crew…

Mo detested the “Kailangan pa bang i-memorize yan?” soundbite and declared it as the most annoying… Mojo, Grace and Miguel had their own choices…

A texter said that the most annoying one was Grace Lee’s “I love you Chiz Escudero!”, hehe…

Good one!

Share a secret

Mo talked about a website where anyone could post anonymously a long and deeply held secret… If I recall correctly, he did this before and he got some pretty interesting stuff out there… So he began by asking the callers to phone in and share their deepest and darkest secrets:

Some of the most interesting ones were:

Hot Mom

A male caller phoned in and shared the secret that he had banged not only his girlfriend but also his girlfriend’s hot Mom! Hmmm, I think every teen has had this fantasy at one time or another… This guy just got lucky he managed to live out his!

Call Center affairs

I don’t know what it is about call centers but some of the raunchiest stories I’ve heard come from people who’ve worked in call centers… A couple of female call center agents shared their secret affairs with married men who also worked in call centers…

I’m guessing that the stress is sometimes too much and the opportunities too many to let the chance go by… I loved Mo’s analogy about guys… He said that men are like fighter plane pilots who patrol the skies to protect their loved ones… They don’t like war, they don’t like to hurt people but when a Russian MIG enters their radar, they have to engage and fire away… FOX 1… Whoooosshhhh….

Sisterhood of the travelling pants

Another recurring theme that I noticed when people share secrets is the fascination with sisters… A male caller shared his story about how he courted a girl because he wanted to bang the girl’s sister and he eventually did, after he’d been going out with the elder sister, he got his chance and he did it with the hot younger sister…

Mo was green with envy at this guy, he sounded like a real Casanova… Well you can’t win them all Mo… πŸ™‚

Band of brothers

I’m sure with that previous story there’d be a girl version of the same theme and I was spot on… A girl caller chimed in with her secret that she did the jiggy with the younger and better endowed brother of her then boyfriend (now husband)…

Mo gave her some advice and asked her to make sure that in future when she and her husband have kids, that she knew who the father of the child was…Β  πŸ™‚

Bless me Father

Of course Mojo’s sistah’s had to have their share of airtime too and a caller phoned in to share the secret that he had with a priest… Apparently, during a retreat, he had some oral lovin’ time with a priest who had entered the priesthood because he was having “identity” issues…

The priest is now in Africa doing “missionary” work and is probably on “bended knees”… Aherrmmm…

Whew, that was fun!

Mo promised to do that segment once a month as it produced great radio… πŸ™‚

I agree, it certainly appeals to the voyeur in all of us…

Great times!
