screw the status quo. we need change and we need it now. we need not a leader who plays with words and public funds. we need not a leader whose years of service fall under the 'fiction' category. we definitely need not a leader who knows nothing. we require a leader who has conviction, who has the guts to change the seemingly unchangeable. we need... to prepare for 2007. Now.

Ahmad vs. GMA7

Yes, Im stil alive folks! Alive Alert Awake Enthusiatic!

What is it with GMA-7 being way in over thier heads, thinking that they can make duplicates of the classic eye candys like "The Lord of the Rings" and "The Matrix" trilogies? Come on people effects are not everything. The reason why these holywood movies were so damn great, was because there were talented people behind it! I do not know how is it that the local showbiz industry is so pissed off about video piracy, when they themselves do nothing but pirate concepts, characters, storylines, and even scenes for crying out loud! What it ends up becoming is a poor attempt to mimick the original. Folks let us not support piracy in any form. Ergo Boycott this pathetic GMA and ABS-CBN shows. Stick to cable and news documentaries.

On second tought maybe the show "Sugo" is inspired from real events of Philippine Politics. Here's my version of the TV series, bear with me because this is the first essay Im writting in tagalog

Noong unang panahon, merong isang tribo na ang pangalan ay oposisyon. Ito ay pinamumunuan ni Apo Erap Estrada na me kapangyarihang itim. Mortal na kaaway ng mga taga oposisyon ang mga taga administrasyon na pinamumunuan naman ni Sultana Gloria Macapagal Arroyo. Noong naglaban ang 2 pinuno, ginamit ni Sultana GMA ang kapangyarihan ng EDSA upang talunin si Apo Estrada, at siya nya ngang nagawa. Natalo at naghirap ang tribo ng oposisyon, ngunit naniniwala sila na sa pamamagitan ng kapangyarihan ng maduming pulitika ay muli nilang mabubuhay si Apo Estrada. Samantala ang reyna ng tribong administrasyon ay inabuso naman ang kapangyarihan ng EDSA at siyang naging ugat ng kanyang kasakiman, at naging sanhi ng paghihirap ng lahat ng kanilang kapanalig. Dahil dito ang ilang mga taga-administrasyon ay nag-aklas laban sa kanilang pinuno. Ngunit sadyang makapangyarihan ang pinuno ng administrasyon upang magapi. Kayat sa kawalan nila ng pag-asa sila ay sumanib sa tribo ng oposisyon upang muling buhayin si Apo Estrada. Mag gawa lamang nilang buhayin si Apo Estrada sa pamamagitan ng isang "Alay". Ang unang inatasan para maging alay ay si Fernando Poe Jr. At dahil ayaw ng pinuno ng tribong administrasyon na mawalan ng kapangyarihan sa oras na mabuhay uli si Apo Estrada, inatasan niya ang "Sugo" para tugisin ang alay, lipulin ang mga taga-oposisyon, at ipagtangol ang kanilang tribo. At natugis nga ang alay ng matalo si FPJ noong nakaraang eleksyon, kayat ang sumunod na alay naman ay walang iba kundi si Susan Roces. Inatasan ng mga taga-oposisyon ang isang tagapagtangol ng alay upang ito ay hindi magapi ng isang sugo. At ito ay walang iba kundi si Francis Chiz Escuderro. Ngunit hindi naman tumutigil ang sugo para gapiin ang alay ng oposisyon, at ang sugo ay walang iba kundi si Sec. Mike Defensor!


Unfortunately this is not the battle between good and evil. This is a battle between Evil Vs. Evil. Its Freddy Vs. Jason, Alien Vs Predator. But in since I'm not feeling colonial lately, its sugo vs. tagapagtangol. Who needs to watch the pathetic acting skills of Richard Guttierez? Who needs to watch sugo or encantadia? Just watch the real deal! Watch the six o'clock news. -Ahmad

Evil versus evil? That strikes me as an interesting idea. Such a scenario would hit the reader with a moral dilemma: In a world where everything is evil, who do you side with when its many forces clash against each other?

That's not to say, of course, that GMA-7 has hit upon the perfect presentation to begin with...
