The Ravelos speak

18 Aug

Ang taray ng mga anak ni Mars Ravelo!

Sinong umaapi sa aking tagapaglikha? Sabihin nyo! Sino?

Sinong umaapi sa aking tagapaglikha? Sabihin nyo! Sino?

In response to Manoling Morato’s pagbubuhat ng bangko ni Carlo J. Caparas, the children of Mars Ravelo released a very straightforward statement.


Mr. Caparas, try to find the exit door from that pseudo world of yours. It’s the only way you can free yourself of all your misery and pain right now. Don’t allow the Christofs in your life to tell you what to think and say. It’s a matter of being able to come to terms with yourself. Truman Burbank found his exit door just in time.

To our father, you can stop turning in your grave now. Tell your friends Tony, Larry and Francisco, it went pffft.

Darna says hello!

4 Aug

Attended the Darna presscon at GMA 7’s Studio 5 last night and became very sure that on August 10, all tricycle and jeepney drivers will be at your neighborhood carinderias with TV to watch its pilot episode.

Dingdong – not Ding – is one lucky guy.

As Darna, Marian sure moves well.

At sexy lumipad.

But of course, Darna wouldn’t be complete without Valentina (Iwa Moto)

and other monstrous creatures.

Ehra Madrigal as Babaeng Lawin

Maggie Wilson as Babaeng Linta

Nadine Samonte at Babaeng Impakta

Francine Prieto as Babaeng Tuod

But most of all, Darna will never be Darna without this woman.

No, that’s not Anna Wintour.  Not Jessica Alfaro, either.

Amazing din ang transformation ni Marian.  At the presscon, she first appeared onstage as the sweet and tame Narda.

Then a few minutes later…

Ferosh to the max!  And she’s ready to kick GMA’s (Arroyo, not her network) butt for not making her master Mars Ravelo a National Artist.

So, are you watching the nth remake of Darna on August 10?

Magtatampo si Mars Ravelo

As y’all know, Carlo J. Caparas was conferred the National Artist Award for Visual Arts and Film.

Though I believe that art is subjective and have nothing against Carlo J. – except that I really, really hate his cap, hair, shades, and jacket – I think lang may isang grupo na susugod sa Malacanang para pagpaliwanagin si Gloria, lalo na’t may mga balitang apat na awardee ang isiningit niya.

These guys are powerful, you know.   Gloria better get ready.

And as for Francisco Coching, the long-forgotten master of Pinoy komiks, gusto niyang ipatanong kung kelan daw siya maku-consider.  Unfair na kasi, eh.
