Well, Kris Aquino, there’s always Hope for James Yap

Without saying much, Kris tells the whole nation that there’s something wrong with her relationship with James Yap. Check the body language. But since it’s election time, the Aquino family are maximizing James’ fluency with the Visayan languages so kasama muna siya sa pangangampanya. Makakasama ni James si Cory para tulungan si Noynoy sa mga gitnang isla ng Pilipinas. Noynoy is also supported by Erap. Whoaa!

Anyway, for James Yap, there’s always hope. I mean Hope. Di pa sila ni Kris may Hope na eh. Kaya araw-araw siyang nagpapa-facial sa Belo Medical kasi ayaw niyang mawalan ng Hope. They say it’s the reason why Kris and Vicki aren’t in speaking terms with each other.

Teka, buntis din daw si Hope Centeno?

Lito Camo’s Boom Tarat Tarat and Prior Art

If someone in the past borrows from folk or pop culture, he shouldn’t be invoking intellectual property right. There’s this thing we call prior art.

Lito Camo gave a warning in TV Patrol: He said he has given only one politician (Zubiri) the “exclusive rights” to use “his” song as campaign jingle and will sue anyone else who uses it without his permission.

But is Boom Tarat Tarat just his song? Check the tune of The Farmer in the Dell and A Hunting We Will Go, both traditional children’s songs. Lito Camo had always been borrowing from pop and folk culture. Bulaklak‘s chorus borrowed heavily from an action song that kids play on the streets, for one. And the phrase “boom tarat tarat” is from a Boy Scout chant / camp fire song.

Topic Name: Boy Scout chant “Boom Tarat”
Topic Description: Just want to inquire if it is correct to say that the popular Willie Revillame (Lito Camo) song “Boom Tarat” was taken from one of the camping chants of the boy scouts. I believe I have had heard and chanted this before during my scouting years.

Read the replies here:

Sampling is a common thing nowadays. But claiming that you what you don’t is a different thing.

sampling is the act of taking a portion of one sound recording and reusing it as an instrument or element of a new recording.

The funny thing is, the politicians believed him. Kasi si Zubiri nga lang ang nag-bu-boom-tarat-tarat!

And here’s more:

Padyak sa kanan,
Padyak sa kaliwa
Umikot ng umikot at humanap ng iba.

By the way, whatever happened to the case of Chandeliers and Pinoy Ako?

Post-SCQ Kapamilya love team: PBB Kim + Gerald

[source: Philippine Journal article]

The audience’s deafening response when he and partner Kim Chiu came out on the Araneta Coliseum stage during the Bench undies show surprised Gerald Anderson.

“We really didn’t expect it, kasi we’re just new and there were many other stars who’re much bigger than us,” he says. “And yet, grabe talaga ang screaming and applause.”

He was discovered by Joross Gamboa while the latter was performing in Gen. Santos City, where Gerald is based. Joross introduced him to his manager, Jun Reyes, who then brought him to ABS-CBN to join PBB Teen Edition.

Now, they say he’s more popular than Joross and it wouldn’t be surprising if Joross would be insecure of him. “Hindi naman siguro. We’re like brothers as we have the same manager. He’s very kind. Three years na siya sa showbiz and he gives me advice on how to handle things.”

Gerald was seated with Kim as we interview him and they keep on teasing and tickling each other. Has something romantic developed between them?

“No, not yet. We’re just closer now as friends and we’re having fun being paired together. Sa taping, kulitan kami lagi, kaya masaya sa set. She’s only 16 and I’m 18, so we don’t have to rush things.”

They’re paired in the first episode of the new Sunday show, “Love Spell”, titled “My Boy, My Girl,” where they are supported by Christian Vasquez and Budoy from PBB Celebrity Edition, Mikki Arceo of PBB Teens, child actor Quintin from SCQ Kids, and topnotch comedian Eugene Domingo.

PBB has really changed his life a lot. “I had to leave GenSan and get a condo unit with my brother near ABS para mas malapit sa work ko. I now miss my family so much, but I guess I have to sacrifice because I really want to be of help to my parents and siblings.”
