Good times with Mo (Sept. 22, 2008)

Posted in Most Recent Posts with tags , , , , , , , on September 22, 2008 by Benj

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!

Today’s show was charged with electricity, I mean it could’ve been an aftermath ofΒ  last night’s thunder and lightning show, but it probably was because Mo’s brought back our favorite Forbidden Questions segment…

Anyway, before we get to Forbidden Questions, Mo did the 2nd round of the Hottest Celebrity Showdown with the top seed Marian Rivera taking on 8th seed Ehra Madrigal…

Marian Rivera vs. Ehra Madrigal [GMA bracket]

Mojo votes Ehra (they were classmates at UA&P), Grace votes Ehra, Callers, majority votes Ehra??? What’s going on here? Janice votes Marian (yes!) Mo argued for Marian saying that overall she’s the most popular star of GMA, she’s got a gorgeous face while not denying that Ehra has the hottest body in GMA… I mean Mo said that something trickles down his leg when he sees Ehra, what better endorsement can you get? But it was in vain… For some perverted reason Ehra wins this round, upsetting the top seeded Marian Rivera… 😦

She moves on to the 3rd round… (where she’ll get whupped)

Now, on to Forbidden Questions… Please note that the transcript below is not a word for word recording of what was said but a fairly close approximation… I paraphrased some parts for obvious reasons… But I think I’ve captured the essence of most of what was said…

I tried to record the show but unfortunately, my recorder went kaput at the worst possible time… and unless some kind soul uploads the recorded show, we’re out of luck! πŸ™‚

Mojo went with Kristine, Grace went with Angel and Mo went with Angel… Callers went with Angel as well… You know, a couple of years back, I would’ve gone with Kristine on this but as Mo said, she’s not ageing well, I guess married life didn’t suit her… I also go with Angel on this one…

It’s a massacre, Angel wins this one by a landslide… πŸ™‚

Till next time… I’m out of here…

Good times!
