how the PHILIPPINE SENATE turned into AMERICAN IDOL!!!


America's #1 Reality TV Show,
AMERICAN IDOL on the Fox Network

and

The Philippines' #1 Reality TV Show,
ZTE BROADBAND HEARINGS on ANC,

have each given birth to new Idols:

both are diminutive, and
both instantly captured the hearts of their fellow Pinoys,
because both are prone to crying copious tears!

Ramiele Malubay surely is a fine singer,
and as for Jun Lozada,
who's surely fine-tuned all of his statements,
magaling talaga siyang "kumanta"!





Ryan Seacrest hosts American Idol,
and often gets surprised by the results;
sometimes, his too-cute antics can be irritating;

Sen. Ping Lacson hosted many dinners
for the Senate's "surprise witnesses";

sometimes, the Senator gets irritated
when he doesn't get the results that he wants
because his witnesses try to be too cute.




Randy Jackson and Sen. Allan Peter Cayetano
always get to speak first on the "Judges' Table";

Sen. Allan gets hot when he thinks the country is going to the dogs,
and Randy doesn't seem to think, and always says
"that was hot, dawg!!!"

Both of them also tend to repeat themselves quite often,
because most of their singers and witnesses tend to be "pitchy".





Things would be so dull without
Sen. Jamby Madrigal and Paula Abdul,
the two ladies who consistently deliver
the most spectacular non-sequiturs in their respective shows;

airhead Paula's thoughts and language
are all about glorious beauty and colors,

and heiress Sen. Jamby's language gets colorful
whenever she thinks about the "beauty" of Gloria!





And finally,
Sen. Juan Ponce Enrile and Simon Cowell,
the most erudite characters in these shows;

both are curmudgeons always ready with a cantankerous comment,
and often,
both can barely disguise their contempt for what they have to endure...

"because, if I'm being honest,
most of the people they have to listen to
seem to be doing karaoke,
are slightly cabaret,
and are really quite appalling!!!"

March 24, 2008

Mind Bullet launches Free Daily On-line Political and Current Affairs Clippings

Mind Bullet Inc. (http://www.mindbullet.org/), the market positioning and public relations consulting group, has launched its political and current affairs monitor on-line at (http://www.newsmonitoring-mindbullet.blogspot.com/) . It is an internet based clipping service on major news and current affairs as seen in today’s on-line newspaper editions. It aims to help decision makers and business leaders make intelligent analysis of current events through a one stop navigation portal.

Newspapers scanned daily include the on-line editions of the Philippine Daily Inquirer, Philippine Star, Manila Times, Manila Bulletin, Daily Tribune, Malaya, Business Mirror, Business World, Abante, Abante Tonite, Pilipino Star Ngayon, and Philippine Journal.

Specialized and topic specific editions of the online-clipping services are currently being sent to selected clientele including the offices of Sen. Alan Peter Cayetano (Graft and Corruption, Education Issues), Sen. Pia Cayetano (Health and Environment), Cong. Maria Laarni Cayetano (Education, Political) Cong. Teofisto TG Guingona III (Power and Electricity), Cong. Maria Evita Arago (Water, Political).

Eero Brillantes, Mind Bullet CEO, says that the on-line monitor serves many purposes. He says the foremost function is to make key judgments based on trend tracking and news analysis. Tracking also serves as early warning for potential political flashpoints or opportunities. Key staff of clients are likewise able to fast track their familiarization of policy issues by learning the policy and political environment and the different stakeholders involved.

The online monitor can be accessed through http://www.mindbullet.org/ and http://www.brainbang-mindbullet.blogspot.com/.
