Sinkong Chicharon Mystery Solved!

Yes yes yes yes!!!! Thanks to one of you (a certain someone who signed off as Anonymous), the Singkong Chicharon Mystery has been solved! I asked you guys to help me remember the original 80's tune where "Sing, sing, sing, singkong chicharon. Bentesingkong tira-tira, jis na pulburon" was lifted from, and thanks to this anonymous nostalgia fanatic, the mystery has been solved! The tune is by Silver Pozzoli, and the name of the tune is "Around My Dream"! OOOOOH MAN!!!! Now I can finally sleep!!!!

I really wish you guys would sign off using a nickname or something you made up, so I can give proper thanks to most of you people who simply go by "anonymous". But thanks again my anonymous friend! You've put my mind to rest. :)

All you people who love all the vintage commercials on here, good news! I told you I'd get the video of the Dragon Katol commercial going right? Well thanks to our good friend MonBC you can now watch that real funny commercial that never fails to make everyone laugh! I can watch that commercial over and over and I'll always be laughing.

I just love classic Filipino cinema. There's nothing like looking back to the golden years of Pinoy cinema, when the real stars of LVN and Sampaguita Pictures graced the screens of black and white tv sets and movie houses. That's why I decided to have Takilya Classics! I'll be posting this every other Thursday, featuring scans of rare photos and posters of classic Filipino stars and movies.

Hoy mga mahilig sa Iskul Bukol! Here's a cool announcement for all ISKUL BUKOL fans! I was recently contacted by Shari, one of the content researchers for I-Witness. She wanted to know if I had some TVJ material to lend her. Anyway, they're doing a special documentary on TVJ and Iskul Bukol: airing this Monday, October 8, 2007, after SAKSI. So don't miss that you TVJ fans, I'm sure it's going to be a great show.

It's Friday! What's everyone up to? I'm off to DJ at a special event here in NYC. Will be dedicating my first tune to all you nostalgia fanatics: "Around My Dream" by Silver Pozzoli of course! Otherwise known as "Singkong chicharon!"

Much love to everyone,
