News Bits Tidbits

One of the benefits of having Broadband at home is I get read the news before I go to bed. I'm not quite in the mood to talk about ZTE and GMA and ERAP and Clinton-Obama right now, so I'll just mention some newsbits that caught my eye in the past couple of weeks...

  • I'm sure you heard about Britney Spear's tragic excuse for a performance at the recent MTV VMA's. I honestly was looking forward to it, I suppose a lot of us are really suckers for Happy Endings, but then watching here walk around the stage (almost) dancing was just blah and blah. She could have done better to say the least. Haha. But check again. Her song "Gimme More" is #3 on the Billboard Hot 100, and #1 on the Hot Digital Songs.



  • And that Chris Crocker guy who was on YouTube crying over the whole Britney thing, and how almost every newspaper in the world featured her (horrible) comeback. I saw an article saying how amazing it was that you can have a nervous breakdown and the whole world can watch it. Haha. Seriously, I think people obsessed with celebrities are really creepy...


  • And did you hear about Christian Bautista's Lupang Hinirang blooper?



"...Lupa ng araw ng luwalhati't pagsinta, ang mamatay ng dahil sa'yo!"

Dumbass. 'Nuff said. Haha!

  • How about that racial slur against Philippine Medical Schools on Desperate Housewives? Where Teri Hatcher's character says "Before we go on, I think I wanna see his diplomas to check that they're not from some medical school in the Philippines!" (or something like that). I mean c'mon. That was really irresponsible of the writers. It's a reputation issue. Doctors who received their degree in a Philippine medical school is just as competent as any other doctor from any medical school in the United States. That comment was uncalled for.
