Floy Quintos Values Shock Value

EFour-time Palanca awardee playwright and television director Floy Quntos shares a couple of laughs with Miles as he talks about his groundbreaking Reality TV show in a Reality TV show in a play, SHOCK VALUE. A sudden but intentional deviation from his historical and critically acclaimed St. Louis Loves Dem Filipinos, Shock Value tells of a TV host named Matt (Andoy Ranay and John Cruz, alernate), whose life turns into a psychedelic rollercoaster ride after a highly publicized rendezvous with a supposedly underaged street hustler. Watch as Matt negotiates the monstrosity he has unwillingly concocted from the flashy ingredients of TV glamour and personal manipulation. The colors are tremendous, the energy inviting, and the actors almost allow you to jump onstage and indulge in the madness. It's like watching your typical Filipino lunch time variety show--only with x-ray vision and three shots of runaway steriods. Shock Value is directed by the formidable Alex Cortez and features Franc...

One Night with Sarong Banggi Director, Emman dela Cruz

EIndie film director Emman dela Cruz takes time to chat with Miles and Margaret as he waits to go onstage to receive yet another award for his critically acclaimed film, "Sarong Banggi," under UFO Films. The three lose track of time, Emman almost is not able to receive his Best Director award. Literally "One Night" in Bicolano, Sarong Banggi is a story of two people whose lives change after a chance encounter. Newcomer Angelo Ilagan plays a teen-coming-of-ager who meets and connects with a washed up but ephemeral prostitute played by Jaclyn Jose--who won an Urian (an Oscar equivalent) for this role. If we tell you any more, we'd be doing a great disservice to the independent film industry by composing a blog-level review of an otherwise excellent, excellent film. Jessie Lazaten's take on the folk song of the same name is also featured in this podcast. Watch the trailer (which you could also download into your iPod Movie) by clicking on the PLAY button above.

Remember The Wonder Years

EFred Savage, perhaps? Walk down memory lane by recalling the TV shows that helped shape so much of what we are now. From the violent and totally macho Transformers and Thundercats, to the candy-cane Care Bears and Shirt Tails. Bon suggests Miles write a theme song for the podcast with the following criteria: silly, technological and rhyming; and wonders why palindrome is such a useless coinage for a useless concept. "On the Phone" is an original by Miles Sanchez and The Soopertrump. Like it? Download it at http://www.myspace.com/milessanchez Intellectual Property Rights apply.

Remember The Wonder Years

Foiled Hopes & Dreams = Wasted Youth

EWhen foiled hopes & dreams equal wasted youth, Cara, Bon & Miles typify the failure. Cara wanted to become a ninja/assassin who drives a porsche but pays her taxes, Miles an airline pilot, and Bon, well, a dolphin. Cara can still be an assassin with further training and weight loss, Miles can still be a pilot if he has his eyes lasiked, but Bon can never become a dolphin. Something about evolution. Our friends theorize that Hong Kong used to be part of Bangaea and make dolphin-monkey sounds, but the coffee shop security guard chases them away. Because in Manila security guards carry pre-WW2 rifles, they run for their lives. "Drifting" is a song from Miles' first record "Eclectic Sanchez" released last year. Maybe the record bars still have it, maybe they don't. We can't put it up for download on Myspace though, because of label contracts and selfish things like those.

Foiled Hopes & Dreams = Wasted Youth

Classcasting Should be a New Word, Yeah?

EMiles talks on Podcasting as a Teaching (in TIML's case, a Garbage-making) Tool in Dr. Lazaro's Radio Techniques Class at the College of Arts and Letters in The University of The Philippines. This episode is intentionally made of shout-outs because Miles talks way too much about way too many touchy issues and utilizes way too many copyrighted materials that editing this podcast would yield you the same exact podcast. Hopefully, more curiosity and creativity are sparked in this medium of alternative communication, so that more people will podcast, making more virtual garbage. We don't know what to write in this line so, um, free the internet?

Eating at Chili's: Bon Has a Headache and Admits He's Not Out

EAnd by doing that, he just came out. At Chili's. Along Morato. In Quezon City. No red carpet and parade music? Cara, Miles and Bon eat Chili's Crispy Calamari Putanesca Pasta and New Zealand Mussels. Miles complains about the bill and that his mussels are "freshish" at best, but is distracted by Bon's challenge to name pastries. Contenders are "Rainbow Pie", "Chocolate Tea Somethings", "Crinkles Crinkles Shining", "Sunshine Smile Cake", and "Happy Happy Shiny Faces". Cara makes fun of Philippine education, while Bon believes English literacy in the country is 99%. Wow. That's just crazy! Which part of the Philippines did he study in? London? No featured music this time because this is the longest podcast we've ever come up with. We cut and edited this episode like John Wayne Gacy, but Bon and his headache went overtime. We love him when he has a headache because he is five notches funnier than his already funny self, and he tends to come out.

Josie's Pragmatic Secrets to Laying Hot, Straight Men

EMiles prepares Mexican food for everybody while Josie Flawless a.k.a. Krixie Ledesma graces this episode. Because wine abounds, somebody inevitably spills it all over everybody's taco plates. But the conversation becomes more and more interesting as Krixie gives us a blow by blow (!) account of his/her online encounters--from the first step of chatting with a straight guy, to the "attaching" of his/her hand onto this guy's body parts. Josie, in itself, is not his/her real name. Because Josie actually has a real job, we thought of resizing his/her pictures so that you won't be able to recognize his/her face. And, we also masked a couple of names in the podcast because we don't want to get sued by famous people. Or be challenged to a basketball match. Yes, Krixie's been around, including, quite possibly, you or someone you know. Bon, Margaret, Miles, and Cara dissect Josie's secrets in the hopes that they'd be able to bed more guys in the future. Tara provides ambient noise. We featur...

Josie's Pragmatic Secrets to Laying Hot, Straight Men

Usapang Lasing # 1: 14% Alcohol Content Can Do This To You

EUsapang Lasing = Drunken Conversations Who says straight and gay guys can't drink together without getting someone offended, harassed, or beaten up? Bon, Miles, and Cara join friends at Cafe Baresto along Kamuning Avenue, to celebrate the departure of Typhoon Glenda and Bon's mid-year birthday (whatever that means). With respected stage, film and TV actors Mario Magallona & Neil Sese, Production Designer Edwin Serrano, Lighting Designer Luther Gumia, and sidekick/UPTC president Miss Hazel, they gather round a table the old school way--by the street with countless bottles of beer. With enough alcohol in their bloodstream, our friendly neighborhood losers find a hard time maintaining the conversation in English, flip-flopping between Tagalog and English much like the direction of a typical tropical thunderstorm (and a very famous Democrat let-down). Edwin comes out by confessing he moonlights as an English teacher from The Ateneo, De La Salle, and the British Council. Because Edwin ap...

Eating at the Cradle of Civilization with a Stranger from Malaysia

EBecause we spend approximately a fourth of our lifetime eating, Miles and Cara consume baklava and a veggie curry sampler with names ridiculously impossible to pronounce at Ziggurat on the corner of Tigris and Euphrates streets in Makati. We are so not kidding! We don't know if they named the restaurant Ziggurat because of it's location, or if they renamed the streets so that the restaurant would be "cradled", or if they built the streets around the restaurant. This is the Philippines after all. Your money (especially OPEC currencies like Dinars) will do miracles of religious proportions. While a Malaysian TV crew films a travel special at Ziggurat , Miles and Cara contribute to the challenges of the TV sound guy by talking and laughing really loud, and interviewing one of the Malaysian guys approximately two feet away from the camera crew. Ozzry (above), is from Malaysia who goes to uni in Sydney. He's on holiday and seems to be enjoying the touristy fare of Embassy and Prince of J...

Eating at the Cradle of Civilization with a Stranger from Malaysia

Rio Locsin is Great like Clam Chowder!

EMargaret Guzman is eating clam chowder at Cibo in Greenhills while she talks with her mouth full about her new film, "Mudraks." In between burps and slurps, Margszie explains why it's so hard not to fall in love with her leading lady, Rio Locsin. In a non-sexual way. Right. Bon asks very relevant questions like film color, mood, and why isn't Margaret kinder to the disabled, while Miles speaks too fast (again) because he feels he needs to get it all out between coughing sprees, and Cara interjects painful questions like, "Are you good?" Mudraks opens this week at the Cultural Center of The Philippines and will transfer to the UP Film Center in August. It stars Rio Locsin, Ricky Davao, Mario Magallona, Roxanne Barcelo and Tess Antonio. Mudraks is written and co-directed by Arah Badayos, and Miles Sanchez writes and performs the theme song in Cebuinglish. You can download the music at www.myspace.com/milessanchez
