Dalawang Buwan Na. Di Na Muli.

2 months na si Sydney Sanggol. May mga moments siya na nags-smile at nakikipaglaro. Masaya pag ganun, pero minsan lang na moments yun.

Mas maraming moments yung iiyak siya, hahanapin yung tulog, iiyak dahil gusto magdede, gusto magpapalit ng diaper, naiinitan, o kaya naman, gusto lang magpakarga. Hindi na nga makagawa ng ibang bagay ang mudra niya dahil parating nakadikit ang sanggol.

Sabi nung mga ate at kuya namin, minsan lang naman yan. Pag pumasok sa school yan, mamimiss mo yan. Di na muli mangyayari ang mga pagkarga-karga niya. Di na muli mayayakap na walang angal. Di na muli hahawak sa kamay mo pag teenager na. Di na muli magpapahalik sayo pag may humahalik nang iba.

Pero matagal pa naman yun, advance lang tayo mag-isip.

Kaya naman ngayon pa lang, as much as possible, capture na natin ang moments. Sure kasi tayo na pag lumaki na si Sydney Sanggol, Di Na Muli natin mababalik ang panahon.

Di Na Muli was written in 2016 by long-time friends Jazz Nicolas and Wally Acolola. They entered the song into the 5th Philippine Popular (PhilPop) Music Festival, performed by The Itchyworms, where it won the grand prize. Now, in 2018, the song has been given new life in the official soundtrack of the hit film Sid & Aya (Not A Love Story) (Viva Films, starring Dingdong Dantes and Anne Curtis, directed by Irene Villamor).

Somewhere in between PhilPop and Sid & Aya, the Itchyworms set out to immortalize the song. The result was a visually stunning and emotional music video, directed by Paolo Abella. Help also came along in the form of the video’s co-director Juno Oebanda, longtime friend of the band, and the generous indulgence of none other than the Cultural Center of the Philippines. The link to the CCP is Teddy Hilado (d. 2015), recognized as the father of lighting design in Philippine theater, who is also the uncle of Oebanda.

The song’s themes of love, loss, and words left unspoken, are embodied in the elegant performances of Rosky Balahadia Hilado (Teddy’s widow, formerly of the Bayanihan Philippine Dance Company) and Carissa Adea (Ballet Philippines), and in the video’s sweeping visuals, all captured within the hallowed halls of the CCP. The music video seeks to serve as loving tribute to Teddy, whose influence is still felt and recognized to this day.

The Itchyworms are now proud to share what is probably the first-ever music video shot inside the Cultural Center of the Philippines, and extend heartfelt thanks to those who helped bring the music video to fruition.

Di Na Muli
Words and Music by Jazz Nicolas and Wally Acolola
Performed by The Itchyworms

Verse:
Nung araw kay tamis ng ating buhay
Puno ng saya at ng kulay
Di mauulit muli

Ang oras kapag hinayaang lumipas
Madarama mo hanggang bukas
Di mababawi muli

Chorus:
Ang dami daming bagay na hindi naman kailangan
Kung pwede lang bawasan natin ang mga tampuhan
Hindi mo lang alam hindi mo pa nararanasan
Kahapon sana natin di mo na pinahirapan
Patawad muli
Di na muli

Verse:
Ang oras kapag hinayaang lumipas
Madarama mo hanggang bukas
Di mababawi muli

(Instrumental)

Bridge:
At natapos ang himas ng sandal
Di kukubli aking tinig
Nang lumipas na’t di man lang nasabi
Salamat hanggang sa muli

Chorus:
Ang dami daming bagay na hindi naman kailangan
Kung pwede lang bawasan natin ang mga tampuhan
Hindi mo lang alam hindi mo pa nararanasan
Kahapon sana natin di mo na pinahirapan
Patawad muli
Di na muli

Binawi buhay mo ng walang sabi
Binubulong ko sa sarili
Mahal kita hanggang sa huli
Mahal ko hanggang sa huli

Telebabad: Sino Yang Fina-Follow mo sa SMULE?

Dito na naman tayo sa bagong episode ng Telebabad series. Kakwentuhan natin si Sarah K.

May kinababaliwan daw siya na Smule performer from Indonesia. Magaling daw kumanta. Marunong maglaro ng tono.

DENNY WAHYUDI

Sa mga hindi nakakaalam, ang Smule ay isang phone app kung saan pwede ka mag karaoke, habang nagbi-video. Pag mataas rating mo,pwede ka na ma-feature. Then yung ibang Smulers, pwede kang maka-duet.

Kung basic ang pagkakakanta mo, masarap mag back up vocals sayo.

Kung gusto mo naman, ikaw ang second voice. Yung ibang Smulers ang kakanta ng melody. Makakabuo kayo ng magandang kanta.

#MMFF2016 Review : Saving Sally

I can say that this is the first movie of its kind. Animation na nagpasok lang ng human characters.

I enjoyed the inventions, the puns, the scenery; all of which can only be seen sa utak ng isang artist.

Geeks rule this time. Be very ready sa nosebleed type of English na akala ko e hindi ko na makikita sa MMFF. Akala ko talaga, pang conyo na yung Vince & Kath & James, may mas ko-conyo pa pala dun.

If you are Alta enough but you are hesitant to watch an MMFF this year, I say you must rethink about Saving Sally.

There are so many gems and gold bars in the movie. Wag mong aalisin ang mga mata mo sa maliliit na details ng eksena. If you have time to rewatch the movie, wag mo panoorin ang nangyayari sa characters. Mas enjoy maghunt ng hidden gems na matatagpuan sa background.

The story is linear. Simple. Typical na boy meets girl and he wanted to save her. What makes it really different is how you can let your imagination take you.

Also, there is an after credits scene. Wag muna lumabas ng sinehan. 

Let me think about seeing a fifth movie for this day. Kain muna ako.

Congrats whianwhamos.

#MMFF2016 Review : Die Beautiful. 

First movie ko for the Film Fest. Plan kong mapanood lahat. 11:25 ang start, 1:30 na rin natapos.

Mabigat yung movie. I was waiting for dull moments, hindi dumating. Makulay nga talaga ang buhay ng mga gay, lalo pa yung mga beks na parlorista.

Several facets na natatabunan ng makeup nila, yan ang pwede mo ma expect sa movie na ito. I just wish nakadalaw ako sa burol ni Trisha Echiverria at nakiramay. Nakapagpa-selfie sana ako dun sa nasa loob ng kabaong.

I was crying simula nung nilabas ang gunting at pinutol ang gown. Hindi huminto ang luha ko dahil nonstop na rin ang hinagpis.

Hindi nakakalito ang pabalik-balik na flashback. Hindi nakakapikon ang kabaklaan ng mga linya. Hindi nakakasawa ang rampa at kembot.

Nagustuhan ko rin ang pagpasok ni Iza Calzado at ni Eugene Domingo sa eksena. Grabe yun. Lahat ng cameo ay nakapagpabigat ng istorya. Akala mo, beau-con lang ng bading… hindi pala.

I congratulate this movie, its casts, directors, and producers.

On to the next.
