Hairspray updates

Guess what these are?

Two tickets to the gala production of Hairspray! Yay!

I also was able to get my hands on some press photos showing the cast--unfortunately, Michael de Mesa is not in his fat suit, and apparently Corny Collins is not considered a big role, since I don't know who's playing him or what he looks like. The guy doing Link, despite his name being the same as mine, looks suspiciously gay, and Nyoy Volante is cute in his Seaweed outfit--I have high hopes for him. I do hope newbie (in the tradition of all who played Tracy) Madel Ching pulls it off--she looks REALLY out of breath in this interview by ClickTheCity--she'll need a lot of lung power for those high notes. Again, where the heck is Corny?!

Corny Collins--missing in action.


Penny and Seaweed--pwede!

I'm set to watch Hairspray on November 13, with Jeremy and Avi. My thanks go out to Joseph, who supplied the free orchestra seats. Can't wait! Wheeeeee!!!

From Slumdog to Millionaire

Slumdog Millionaire has been getting a lot of hype lately, and I, for one, think it deserves it.

Set in the slums of Mumbai, Slumdog Millionaire is, simply, a rags-to-riches story of a boy who went from the shit-diving fanboy (watch the movie and you'll understand) to the 20 million-Rupee winner of the local version of Who Wants To Be A Millionaire - and gets the girl of his dreams in the process. And to make it truly Bollywood-grade (it's a British film, BTW), there's a dance scene at the end.

While some may say that the story is something we've all seen before countless times over and over again (yes, the premise is THAT overused), that's entirely beside the point. No idea is new, they say, the key lies in the way something is presented, which makes Slumdog Millionaire stand out from all the rest. The cinematography for one, is great, and for a movie that reminded me so much of the slums of our own Payatas, of the congestion of this sprawling metropolis we call Met…

One last thing before I hit the sack.

I realize I haven't been posting as much as I want to (ha, Captain Obvious), settling for the occasional photo.

Still, I just want to give out a big thank You to the Guy Upstairs, for blessings and what I pray to be good things to come.
