January 27, 2010 Leave a comment

This is an example of a Prison Break, but it’s not what you think about getting out of prison.

These are the prisoners in Cebu Provincial Detention and Rehabilitation Center (CPDRC), a maximum security prison located in Cebu City, Philippines.  They were given a break from Michael Jackson’s choreographer, Travis Payne, who went to Cebu to teach them and choreograph the steps of the song “They Don’t Care About US”.

Watch the video on how they perform the best dance moves and grooves.  They are now gaining popularity in the whole country and more than 1 million viewers on YouTube as of today.

You can own the Michael Jackson’s new album “This Is It”.

Know More About Sam Worthington (Jake Sully)

January 26, 2010 Leave a comment

The guy in “AVATAR the Movie“, sitting on a wheelchair (Jake Sully), was unfamiliar to me.  Maybe because of his short hair or just my first time to see him on the screen.  I ask myself, who is he?  So, I made a little research about him to share to you his works and skills.

He is Sam Worthington, born in Godalming, Surrey, England, on August 2 1976.  Moved to Australia during his childhood and earned his scholarship and graduated from NIDA (National Institute of Dramatic Art).

He got his first professional role when he portrayed Arthur Wellesley in “Judas Kiss”

Done  television shows such as Water Rats (2000) and “Backburner” and then on the American TV show JAG’s” 100th episode (Boomerang part 1)”, and “Love My way”.

He made his first movie “Bootmen”(2000) with Adam Garcia.

His other works are “Hart’s War” (2002), “Matter of Life, “Dirty Deeds” (2002), Gettin’ Square(2003), “Enzo”, Somersault(2004), Australian retelling of Macbeth(2006), “The Great Raid(2005), “Terminator Salvation(2009), and of course theAVATAR(2009).

Nominated as Best Lead Actor by the Australian Film Institute (AFI) in 2000 for his work in Bootmen. He won Best Lead Actor AFI Award for his role in Somersault in 2004 and 2009 GQ Australia Actor and countless Man of the Year Awards.

I guess he’ll be too busy this 2010 doing his future films such as  “Perseus” (2010) and the remake of the “Clash of the Titans”.

Again, No Show for Manny Villar

January 25, 2010 Leave a comment

On the DZMM radio broadcast this afternoon, I listened to the Senate hearing regarding the Senator Manuel “Manny” Villar’s C5 road Committee report by Senate President Juan Ponce Enrile.

Senator Enrile laid down his report regarding the questionable projects of Senator Villar.   A total of P6.2B was said to be overpriced and that Senator Villar should return it to the Government.

Again, Senator Manny Villar has no show in the plenary on the second time.  That is why Senator Jamby Madrigal made a statement that Villar should face the accusation against him and not be a coward.

Is this a dejavu from the previous doings of the beloved President Gloria Arroyo?  The Senator maybe, have learned from the experts not to attend any hearing that questions credibilities.  Is it not that simple enough to just attend the hearing, lay down your cards and answer all questions that was thrown against you?

Cayetano said that Villar had already answered these questions outside the Senate and it is not necessary that he will attend the Senate hearing because it may be viewed as political.

My question to Senator Cayetano, did Senator Villar attended the UST debate hosted by TED FAILON?  Instead, he suddenly cancelled the appointment for his business meeting reasons.  Maybe he already knew that Ted will ask this type of questions to him.

Oh well, the only thing we have to be reminded of is that when there’s a question, ANSWER IT!
