Philippine Media And The Masses: A Cycle Of Stupidity And Madness

While the release of Heneral Luna was quite a welcome change from the usual (okay, let’s be honest here now) garbage that our media churns out on a regular basis. Both Fallen Angel and I have both said our pieces about it, but what’s sad is that the film has proven to be rather unappreciated at theaters […]

Alam Pa Ba Ng Mamamayang Pinoy Ang Kahulugan Ng Salitang “Kabayanihan”?

NOTE: Ladies and gentlemen, I find myself writing another Tagalized article here not because I want to leave out our foreign readers but simply because I want this particular message to reach out to more locals who have some difficulty reading English.

Is “Nice” Necessarily “Good”? My Question To Common Pinoys

But, step back and see the true picture; that this, really, is just an event that, like the Christmas holidays we anticipate every year, will […]

Riding the Ninoy-Cory “legacy” is riding a bunch of lies

President BS Aquino III has always repeated his parents’ “glory” and their “sacrifices for the country” ad nauseam in his speeches.
