A Day in the Life of Gloria Arrovo (2005)


Four years ago, the MTRCB squelched the living daylights of A Day in the Life of Gloria Arrovo—a political satire shot in animation. That, of course, didn't prevent good Samaritans from loading brisk 50-second clips in youTube. Although blunt and far from perfect, filmmaker RJ Mabilin's animation shorts are irresistibly charming and likable—a far cry from the woman with black, leathery wings flying in the horizon.

hehe

idol mo talaga si gma, ha
=P

Andy Briones said...

Raft3r: Oo naman, patay na patay nga ako dun eh! Yakkk, ach, ergh, eck — teka, nabulunan ata ako!

Galing nga niya, she's still in power. Parang 20 years na nga siya sa Malacanang, ehehe. Tatakbo pa kaya yun sa susunod na eleksyon? :p :p :p

Panoorin mo yung Ding-Ang-Bato video. Click mo yung link. Panalo. Ehehe.

Raft3r said...

gahaman sa kapangyarihan

prinsesamusang said...

LOL hirap talaga pag sikat LOL

Andy Briones said...

Raft3r: Bilib nga ko dun kay GMA. A lot of people hate her, pero in power pa rin. Ibang level na 'to. Ehehehehe.

Andy Briones said...

prinsesamusang: I wouldn't use "sikat"; maybe "notorious" or "delusional" are much more appropriate? Ehehehehehehe. Biro lang. :p

Panaderos said...

Hay naku. Please don't get me started on the MTRCB. It seems to me that the President's feelings matter more to them than a Filipino's right to self-expression. They also showed that they're a bunch of idiots with no sense of humor and who take themselves too seriously. What a pathetic body.

Andy Briones said...

Panaderos: They want to start censoring films shown in UP too. And I thought UP is the last place where the word "censorship" doesn't apply — well, not for long. Ehehe.

len said...

The black leathery wings suits her.
To me, no matter how long she clings to power she will always go down in history as the president that never was.

Andy Briones said...

len: Yeah, the black leathery wings are quite nice. I'm suddenly reminded of that MMFF film last year. What's the title again, was it "Dayo' ? Teka, manananggal ata yun. Afraid. Ehehehehe.

elYAS said...

ehe. naalala ko tuloy nung highschool ako. yung mga panahong nagcu-cut kami ng classes para magpuntang welcome rotonda para magpiket. ;-

Andy Briones said...

elYAS: Idol! Gusto ko nga ring rallyhin yung babaeng yun, kaya lang mejo pikon eh. Marami raw mga aktibistang kumalaban sa kanya na bigla na lang nawala na parang bula. Tama ba yun? Martial law nanaman ba? Ehehe.

Lawstude said...

uy bagay ah. kaya lang kahit di na hatiin ang katawan kasi maliit na hehehe.

Andy Briones said...

Lawstude: Ehehehe, oo nga 'no. Sabagay, baka lalo lang siyang lumiit pag hinati yung katawan niya. Okay na yang ganyang size, mini-me na mini-me ang dating. Ehehehehe.

dreamwalker said...

andy! bakit walang AI???

Andy Briones said...

dreamwalker: I'm not sure, I think they rescheduled it again. Baka Thursday-Friday nanaman. Nagkandarapa pa naman ako sa kaka-madali umuwi ng bahay tapos wala naman pala. :p

Raft3r said...

basahin mo blog ni GMA
ikaw naman ang topic don
hehe

happy weekend, andy!

Andy Briones said...

Raft3r: You mean she has a blog? Wow, I'm so excited. I'm sure that blog is very endearing and likable, and full of warmth and sunshiny feeling. :p :p :p

Happy weekend, Raft3r! :-)

Raft3r said...

ramdam na ramdam namin ang paghanga at pagmamahal mo sa ating pangulo
mabuhay!
hehe

Andy Briones said...

Raft3r: Mabuhay si GMA!

Come to think of it, she's the best thing that ever happened to the Philippines since Marcos. Ehehehehe.

Teka, bigla yata sumakit ulo ko. :p :p :p

prinsesamusang said...

hi andy. alam mo you have the cutest avatar.

Andy Briones said...

prinsesamusang: Wow, thanks!

I originally thought of using the logo of Cats, you know, the Broadway musical. But some guy told me that it gives him the creeps, so I changed to WWF, an NGO I really like. Ehehe.

Thor Bee said...

Andyyyy! I'm baaaack! And slowly digging myself out of deadlines.

What, no AI updates? :p

Andy Briones said...

Thor Bee: Mabuhay, warm greetings from the Pearl of the Orient! Wow, you sound so rejuvenated; I'm guessing your 4-week hiatus went well. Ehehehe.

No updates re: A.I.

I'll try to write an article on "True Blood" instead, HBO's abominable new vampire series. This shit is so bad I have to blog about it. :p

Thor Bee said...

One week lang naman yung leave ko. Pag 4 weeks, wa na work! Hahaha!

True Blood! It's so OA. Paquin seems to be on the verge of an orgasm almost all the time. Plus autoerotica with fangs! Aylabeet!

Andy Briones said...

Thor Bee: The first few episodes are okay, but it really got tacky as it progressed. This shit is really bad. The sex scenes are eye-popping though. :p

Raft3r said...

Paquin seems to be on the verge of an orgasm almost all the time

wow
gusto ko to
hehe

Andy Briones said...

Raft3r: Tingin ko nga magugustuhan mo 'to. Waitress nga pala yung role ni Anna Pakwan dito. Ibang klase yung mga waitresses na ka-trabaho ni Anna Pakwan sa "True Blood," parang mga showgirl kung manamit at kumilos. Patay-patay tayo jan, ayaw ni Laguardia ng ganyan. :p :p :p

Raft3r said...

hbo series ire
tama ba?
summer ata sa US when this show started airing
madalas ko makita yun ads nya, eh
ala twilight ba?
patay tayo dyan
hehe

Andy Briones said...

Raft3r: Oo, mala Twilight nga. Kaya lang ibang level ang sex dito. Kabog ang sex scenes sa Basic Instinct. Swear to god, it's like watching actors reenact various scenes from Kama Sutra. :p

HalfCrazy said...

Hi there!

Di kaya ng MTRCB na mag approve ng ganitong pelikula. Actually, medyo agree rin ako. Di ako maka Gloria pero hindi nga naman tama kung sobrang insulto ito sa Presidente, mas okay siguro kung Documentary.

Saka hindi rin ito ma appreciate ng masa kasi hindi love story. Wala sina Richard Gutierrez eh. LOL

Much Love,

Andy Briones said...

HalfCrazy: Oo nga, siguro kung kinuha nila si Angel Locsin atsaka si Julia Roberts siguro papatok 'to sa masa, ehehehe. Puwede sa role ni GMA si Angel, tapos si Julia puwede sa role ni Madam US Ambassador to the Philippines. I don't remember her name, basta that blonde woman person. :p

HalfCrazy said...

Angel Locsin PGMA hahaha! Panalo yun! Si Hilary Clinton ata tinutukoy mo eh. Ewan ko!

Andy Briones said...

HalfCrazy: Haha! :p

Raft3r said...

whoa
now you;re talking
eto na lang dapat na-blog mo, eh
hehe

happy sunday, andy!

Andy Briones said...

Raft3r: Oo nga, bagay na bagay sa Holy Week ang "True Blood." Makapag-sulat nga ng review nito. Teka, hindi kaya ako makidlatan nito ng di-oras? Patay-patay tayo kay Mama Mary niyan. Eheh.

The Scud said...

andy, ayos ba ang true blood? ala vampire chronicles ni anne rice? i dig anna paquin. there's something very sensual (sexual?) about her. hehe.

Andy Briones said...

The Scud: I love Anna Paquin in The Piano. I think her Oscar win is well-deserved. I don't know what to make of her in "True Blood" though. I don't know if it's her acting or if it's the role she's playing that's crap. I think it's the latter, hehe.

"True Blood" is more like Twilight than Anne Rice's vampire chronicles.

Raft3r said...

it's april
new post na
hehe

Have a blessed Holy Week, Andy.
That in all things God may be glorified.

Andy Briones said...

Raft3r: Busy-busyhan ako sa work kaya hanggang ngayon wala pa rin akong bagong post. Naghihintay nga ko na sabitan nila ako ng medalya pero hanggang ngayon hindi pa rin nangyayari. :p

May work pa rin kayo?

Raft3r said...

off kami thursday and friday
pero bawian na next week
i will be in clark & subic for work
walang tulugan ire
hehe

Andy Briones said...

Raft3r: Wow, punta kang Clark and Subic? Pasalubong naman jan! Balita ko may BMW ka raw at in dollars ang suweldo mo. Ehehehehe.

Axel said...

laki ng galit ng mga tao talaga kay Arroyo ah...

Sana tignan naman din natin yung mga magagandang nagawa nya... Hindi naman sa PRO-GMA ako... Pero lets be more positive rather than negative... Kaya rin tayo hindi umaasenso eh...

Salamas...

Andy Briones said...

Axel: Siguro pro-GMA ka...ehehe, biro lang. 'To naman, masyadong seryoso. Pagbigyan mo na yung mga tao; na-excite siguro sila kasi malapit na matapos term ni Madam.

I'm sure mami-miss ng sambayanan 'yun pag wala na siya sa Malacanang. Aba, well-loved yata yun — mula Aparri hanggang Jolo, lahat mahal na mahal siya. Ehehe.

Axel said...

Ahahaha, sa sobrang mahal nila kay GMA gusto nilang yakapin ng mahigpit hanggang sa hindi na siya makahinga...

Gusto ko lang din ishare ang serious side ng topic mo... Para maintindihan din ng mga tao na hindi madali maging Pinuno ng isang bansa, hindi mo mapapasaya lahat at sa history ng Pinas meron at merong mga tao na aayaw talaga sa nakaupong presidente maging sinu man yan... Lalo na ang pinoy na likhang mga reklamador, aminin man natin toh o hindi... hehehe...

Bow!!!

Andy Briones said...

Axel: What, seryoso ka nanaman? Ehehehe, kaw talaga; ewan ko sa yo. :p

Pero alam mo, tama ka. At mejo napa-isip-isip rin ako. Pag natapos na term ni Madam Prez, malamang ang susunod na magiging pangulo ng bansa natin si Kabayan Noli. Eh di ba siya yung leading sa survey? Naku, patay-patay tayo jan. Ehehe.

Axel said...

Nyahaha, seryoso naman para maiba... lolz

I have respect for Noli but, sorry I dont think he's President Material yet...

Eto lang masasabi ko sa 2010, tingin ko ang pinaka-magandang labanan para sa President position dahil ang gaganda ng records nung mga tatakbo...

Andy Briones said...

Axel: Oo nga, mejo exciting nga 'tong darating na eleksyon. Parang okay si Mar Roxas at si Chizwhiz Escudero. Ano sa tingin mo?

Pag nanalo si Mar magiging maganda ang first lady natin. Kabog si Imelda kay Korina, ehehe.

Axel said...

Hindi pa pwede si Chiz eh, wala pa siyang 40yrs old... Yung kasi ang minimum sa Presidentiables...

Si Mar Roxas ok din pero ang dami kong choices na pagpipilian talaga... Andyan pa si Bayani at Manny Villar...
