Dear Heart 1981: Sharon & Gabby

This movie is a big Sharon & Gabby favorite! The first video clip is of the kakakilig scene of April (Sharon Cuneta) singing the movie theme song "And I Don't Want You To Go" by Lani Hall. The second is a cute comedic scene of Jimmy (Gabby) and April (Sharon) meeting on their first lunch date, while April's yaya intervenes.

Dear Heart (1981) Starring: Sharon Cuneta, Gabby Concepcion, Josephine Estrada, Eddie Garcia, Rosmarie Gill, Suzanne Gonzalez, Ting Jocson, Fred Montilla, and Ronaldo Valdez.

Commercial Break: Sharon Cuneta Lux 1988

Here's the Mega Star doing her famous Lux Soap Commercial in 1988. In these commercials, the star would always lather up soap suds which would be applied onto a dry leaf, which they say made the leaf softer, which then leads to the conclusion that it also softens your skin.

Many thanks to kkabuto68.

Sine-Swerte-Swerte Lang

Swerte rin naman talaga itong mga anak ko. Pag type nilang manood ng favorite movies nila, hahanapin lang nila ang DVD nito at isasaksak sa DVD player. Instant gratification! Sa bahay pa lang, napanuod na nila ang sine. Hindi na nila kailangang hagilapin pa ito sa mga second-run theaters. Anytime of the day, basta gusto nilang mapanuod si Buzz Lightyear o makipag-halakhakan kay Shrek, pwedeng-pwede!

Kami nuon, swerte na kung payagan kami ng mga magulang namin na manuod ng sine. Ang dami pa kasing restrictions.

Pag Action, hindi pwede; puro barilan at suntukan lang raw naman. Pag may seksing mga bebots, hindi rin pwede. Bomba raw yun, For Adults Only . Eh kung may Nora o Vilma, hindi rin pwede. Bakya! Si Dolphy kaya? Yan, sige, OK. Hayun, kasama mo pa sila sa last full show ng Omeng Satanasya. Hindi ko nga man lang naintindihan yung buong storya. Sa haba eh nakatulog pa ata ako. Ang naaalala ko lang, tatlo ang roles ni Dolphy duon- matandang scientist na nagpabata, anghel, at baklang dimonyo.

Pero pag Disney Animated Films, aprub naman ang mga parents namin. Dumbo, Mary Poppins, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty,etc.; wholesome at pang-pamilya ang tema ng mga storya kaya OK sa kanila.

Ang problema, once in a blue moon nga lang kung ipalabas. Tipong papatayin ka sa pananabik; kaya pag napanuod mo tuloy, gusto mo pang ulitin. Parang gusto mo nang tumira sa loob ng sinehan. Kasi naman, kapag natapos mo na ang palabas at pa-exit ka na sa lobby, alam mo na bawal nang bumalik sa loob. Sabi kasi nung guard bawal ang repeats at milagro lang kung magbayad pa ulit sa Papa at Mama, para lang pagbigyan ang kapritcho mo.

Kaya kung nag-enjoy kang panuorin ang mga UFOs at aliens sa Close Encounters of the Third Kind, at gusto mo pang ulitin, (Bakit kasi nagalit kay Richard Dreyfuss yung asawa nya? Para gumagawa lang naman ng bundok ng mashed potatoes ) sorry ka na lang!

Hindi pa kasi naimbento ang betamax o VHS nuon. Mga dalawang dekada pa ang iintayin mo bago mauso ang DVDs.

Siguro naman, pag inabot mo pa ang araw na yon, kung se-swertehin ka at kumikita ka na; can afford mo nang bumili ng sarili mong DVD player at mangolekta ng ibat-ibang titulo sa DVD. Pagdating ng araw na yon, betcha by golly wow!

I betcha, gagasgasin mo ang mga DVDs mo ng Star Wars Collection at walang pwedeng pumigil sa yo, kahit na mapudpod pa ang daliri mo sa remote. Anak, tabi nga dyan, ako naman.

Nostalgia Bloggista: Reno Maniquis

Are you a Pinoy Blogger? Get featured as a Nostalgia Bloggista! Not only are you sharing your wonderful memories of the '70s and '80s, but you also get a free link back! This is a great way to introduce your blog and get a lot of exposure! Just send me an email, write "Nostalgia Bloggista" on the subject line, and you'll soon be featured here on Nostalgia Bloggista!

Batgirl & Robin: Me and my older sister around 1978.

Name: Reno Maniquis
Blog: http://ka-blog.blogspot.com

1. Where did you grow up, and what made that place special?
I was born in Sampaloc, Manila, but grew up in Parañaque. I spent childhood, teenage years, and most of my adult life there. I remember when we first moved into our subdivision, we were only the second house in the area. Everywhere you looked you saw "talahib." Me and my siblings and the kids from the one other house used to play hide and seek in the tall grass, never mindful of any snakes that might be living there (and there were). As the years went by, more houses were constructed and the number of our childhood friends grew. We would ride our BMXs, make obstacle courses in the empty lots, and we would play in the still-being-constructed houses, much to the dismay of our parents.

2. What was your favorite tv show, cartoon, or children's show growing up? What did you like about these shows that made them your favorite?
This is a difficult question to answer, since there were so many. Educationally, I'd have to say Sesame Street. I'd watch Electric Company, but Sesame Street was much more interesting since they had a bigger range of topics, whereas Electric Company was concentrated mostly on words and reading. Cartoons... Voltes V wins hands down. I guess it was the first Giant Robot show that was shown here in the Philippines, that's why it made such an impact on kids my age.

3. Favorite music group or artist? Most memorable song?
During the 80s, there were two camps: Duran Duran ka ba o Spandau Ballet? I was always on the Spandau Ballet side. They were just more cooler and suave to me, I guess.

4. Share with our readers one of your fondest memories of growing up.
It was a blast being a kid back then, especially during summer vacation. You'd be out of the house all day, coming home to eat lunch, then take a nap (because your parents told you to), then go out and play again at around 3pm. We played all the games... Taguan, syato, kidlat, tumbang preso, patintero, piko, minkey monkey annabelle, cops and robbers... The whole shebang.

5. What do you miss from back then that's not available today?
I miss seeing kids play outside the house. Nowadays, most kids are cooped up watching TV or playing videos or hunched over on a computer. And during my childhood, parents don't have to worry that their kids are out of the house. There were no cellphones back then, even landline phones were a rarity. There was no way for a parent to track down where their kids are, but still, they weren't too worried. I guess the world was a much safer place back then.

'70s Music As You Like It

By: Dot Ramos Balasbas-Gancayco
The Philippine Star

At Nonoy Zuñiga's recent Valentine concerts at the Metrobar and the Celebrity Club, I was amazed at the way the audience, composed mainly of professionals aged 35 and above, reacted to his folk songs portion. Nonoy, who unknown to many started as a folk singer, was able, with only his nylon guitar as backup, to lead the audience of more than 500 people at each venue to sing their hearts out to '70s songs like Father and Son, Danny’s Song, Vincent, You’ve Got a Friend, Birthday Song, Love Song and I Won’t Last a Day Without You.

It was such a great feeling - singing without care with strangers you felt bonded with through the music of the likes of James Taylor, Cat Stevens and The Carpenters. It was as if we were all a family, because we knew all those songs by heart. We kept pleading for more.

And so afterwards, I asked myself, if there are so many people like me who had a longing for this kind of pure, soft music so relaxing and pleasant to the ears, there should be a place where people could go to, to listen to and savor those songs. Contrary to what some people think - that '70s artists are a dying breed - I believe that this is their moment!

Consumers of this demographic category - around my age, at the prime of their careers, with extra cash for nights out, now very much into school homecomings, barkada and org reunions - are actually looking for these '70s singers! People who had their most unforgettable experiences in grade school, high school or college in the '70s are yearning for things that trigger memories of those good old days. They just do not know where to go.

Luckily for us, My Bro's Mustache, owned by successful entrepreneurs Boy and Gigi Vinzon, houses these most talented artists. Now located in its new address at 68 Sct. Tuazon cor. Sct. Madriñan Sts., very near Timog Ave., QC, the new My Bro's Mustache venue has gone further. Boy, with the help of artist Mon Espia and Jojo Robles of the Manila Standard, has come up with an album entitled Restrung: Lumang Gitara, Bagong Kanta, featuring My Bro's Mustache artists, who include folk and rock icons and upcoming artists doing all new original songs.

I could not believe it when I saw the names of the artists Mon, Boy and Jojo put together in one album through blood, sweat and tears. I would like to mention all of them here plus a few important details about some of them:

• Florante. He is the artist behind the undying songs Handog (which my St. Joseph's College batch sang for our high school teachers on our Silver Anniversary Homecoming with matching tears in our eyes!), and Ako'y Isang Pinoy.

• Heber Bartolome . He composed Tayo'y Mga Pinoy, which taught us to be proud to be Filipinos.

• Joey "Pepe" Smith. Who does not know Pepe Smith of the Juan de la Cruz band fame? Regarded as the Philippines’ real and original Filipino Rock Star, he shook the Philippine rock music with his Himig Natin.

• Lolita Carbon. She of Asin fame and her deep, husky voice has been described by world jazz champion Mon David as "waring nagmumula sa lupa." Her contribution to this album is said to be, undoubtedly, the sexiest.

• Wally Gonzalez. He has been introduced as the "God of Guitar" and the "Father of Rock Guitar." Need I say more?

• Rannie Raymundo . This pop icon's rhythm comes from the heart. He unselfishly lent his talent as a drummer to a number of songs in the album.

• Noel Cabangon. He is said to be "The Voice of Life," "The Voice of Hope" who mesmerizes people when he sings on stage.

• Lester Demetillo. Now the head of the UP College of Music Guitar Dept., Prof. Lester is my son Jonjon's former guitar teacher. I would like to sincerely thank Prof. Lester for introducing me to My Bro's Mustache, where my balikbayan guests and in-laws Annie and Lito, had their grandest time going down memory lane.

• Susan Fernandez . Her meaningful songs have made her the "Voice of Women" with all her meaningful songs.

• Paul Galang. One of the most beautiful and unforgettable voices I have ever heard, he composed the song, Salamat Pepe, also in this album, as a tribute to Joey "Pepe" Smith and to all the gallant men and women of '70s Philippine rock.

• Chickoy Pura. The lead singer of the group The Jerks, whom I had the pleasure of having personally interviewed, humbly says he is very honored to be with music legends in this album. He feels very nostalgic working with folk singers of the '70s.

• Mon Espia. The brains behind the album, Mon's dedication to music is admirable and unwavering. Despite the odds, he attained his dream of putting all these outstanding artists together in one project. His composition, Caleb's Song, is one of my favorites as it speaks of a parent's great love for his child.

• Jesse Bartolome. He is one of the three talented brothers known as Banyuhay.

• Bobby Mondejar . He was with the group Hiyas, and seduces you with his song Let's Spend the Night.

• Albert de Pano is a former schoolmate at the Kamuning Elementary School. Albert plays the guitar and sings very well. He gives justice to every song he performs. There are also very beautiful contributions from Corky and Kiko, Hans and Reagan, Joniver, Rey and Ernel Mendoza.

This rare, unprecedented album entitled Restrung: Lumang Gitara contains 19 songs from 22 artists. It is worth a hundred times its price of P299.

Exclusively distributed at My Bro's Mustache (with contact number 0917-8948129), the album offer from big recording distributors allows it to reach the artists’ countless fans all over the country and abroad. The album will surely form part of the collection not only of those fond of the '70s but also of our children and grandchildren.

Thank you, Boy and Gigi, for giving these Philippine music industry giants a place they could call home. Mon, Boy, and Jojo, thank you for making this album happen. This means so much to all your featured artists and to us, their admirers.

With all the good reviews and the encouraging sales, all the stress, tension, pressure and hard work are now paying off. I am praying for the widest distribution! I am looking forward to a big concert at a big venue.

And to all artists included in the album, borrowing the words of Paul Galang in the last featured song, I say: Salamat, Pepe at sa inyong lahat sa inyong awitin. Salamat Pepe, at sa inyong lahat sa himig natin…sariling atin!

Remembering Marlo And The Magic Movie Machine

Marlo and the Magic Movie Machine is one of those long lost gems that we all loved watching back in the late '70s. After several years of not having seen this obscured show, we only begin to learn how special it was; not only for its educational value, but for the fact that it was one of those shows that worked on a shoestring budget, and still managed to attract a great audience. Executive producer Sanford Fischer had access to an enormous film archive, which contained what seemed endless feet of film, which hadn't been viewed in years, even decades. Fisher and his team laboriously edited the shorts into bite-sized clips which enabled Marlo to take the kids at home on many imaginative and historical trips during each episode.

Actor Laurie Faso played the mustachioed and frizzy-haired host Marlo Higgins. Marlo was an employee of the L. Dullo Company who would work very late hours for his boss Leo Dullo. At night, Marlo would head down to the basement, and would secretly slip into a secret room though a revolving bookshelf and interact with his friend: a talking computer which he often called "Machine" (short for Magic Movie Machine). Together, the two friends would watch various film clips and had exchanged fun filled dialogue. The Magic Movie Machine had a screen that had wavy graph signs whenever it talked, and displayed short clips whenever it would play a film clip. The Machine had a big keypad with round, yellow number buttons, which Marlo would use to punch in a specific code to play a specific film clip. To start the film, he would then press a large orange, rectangular Start button, and the magic would begin. There's also this large steel door (similar to heavy steel doors found in a bank vault) to the side of the Machine's screen. This door was used in rare episodes, where Marlo is magically transported into the film he's viewing. One of the two most memorable episodes is when Marlo visits Japan to eat Sushi, and the other was visiting the US Nautilus Submarine.

Laurie Faso's career continued even after starring in Marlo and the Magic Movie Machine. Not many people know that he did voice-over work for popular animated series titles like Transformers and Monchichis. Even so, we will always remember Faso as friendly Marlo, who with the lovable Machine, made learning so much more fun.

Regular segments featured during the show:

What do you see from A to Z - The code for this feature was '456.' A letter of the alphabet would be chosen, and film clips of things beginning with that letter would be shown. The clip would begin shown completely covered up, and gradually uncovered until it is compleely revealed after 10 seconds. Presumeably, the audience would try to identify what is being shown as quickly as possible.

Magic Year, Magic Month, and Magic Day - Using a chosen date or year as the code and utilizing a special keypad added in a later season to enter months, Marlo and the machine would feature events in history occurring on a particular day (the same day in different years) or in a particular month or year.

The Pre-fame Game - Marlo always used the code '5460' to call up this film. Baby pictures of famous people would be shown and you would be given a chance to guess who they are before a more current picture is revealed.

What do you see from A to Z Hidden Word Game - The code was '4560.' Similar to above, except that each word would begin with a different letter, and after the picture is uncovered, its initial letter would be placed in a blank in a final word. At the end of the segment, the final word would be completely filled in.

Knock-knock Jokes - Marlo would use the larger keypad to enter the code '0000' to call up this film. A character on-screen would begin by saying "knock-knock", Marlo would answer "Who's There", and a knock-knock joke would be told.

Riddles - In a later season, the Knock-knock jokes were replaced by riddles, which Marlo would call up, again using the bigger keypad, by pressing '2222.'

The Birthday Game - A date would be chosen, possibly from letters sent in by fans having that birthday. Marlo would enter this month and day on the keypad. A film featuring famous people who shared that birthday would be shown.

Take A Breath Song
"Take a bweath, take a bweath. Smell a smell, sniff a sniff, take a bweath."

Ang Take A Breath Song ay isa sa mga masasayang sing-along songs na paburito mo pag nanunuod ka ng Sesame Street. Cute ang mga film clips ng mga animals, at tuwangtuwa ka sa boses ng kumakanta. Natatawa ka at hindi mo makalimutan ang kanyang pag pronounce ng bweath (breath). Take a bweath!
