Lourd De Veyra On Kris Aquino and Noynoy

Lourd De Veyra sings for local band Radio Active Sago Project. Though their words are appealing and amusing, I am not a fan of the band’s music all together. I don’t like what they did to Alkohol by the Eraserheads. But that’s another story.

With his band’s lyrical content, it did not come as a surprise to me to see that he is very opinionated about the country’s political and social scene – a trait seen on other artists lke Bamboo and Jim Paredes.

What made me take a deeper look in him was an article of him about my favorite attention-sucker Kris Aquino and her elder brother Noynoy. I am not a Noynoy fan. Maybe partly because, for me, he still has lots to prove. He can’t bank on genetics. And I doubt he’ll pull off something presidential on his own in the remaining months before election. But mostly because I saw him getting bullied by his little sister. This may be a little colonially-influenced but big brothers being bullied by their younger sisters are greeted with the thumb and forefinger in the forehead. And that’s how I saw it.

The way Lourd put it was very impressive.

Then I saw videos of him on TEN on TV5. Humor + Sarcasm + Relevance. I’m sold. I’m a fan.

Today Is Sentai Music

When you are passionate about certain things in life, you can’t help but combine them. I love weekend TV programming back in the early 90’s. We had clasics like Bioman, Maskman, Shaider (boo GMA for doing Zaido, its a disgrace to sir Alexis) and more. Thanks to YouTube, people my age can recall and re-live […] – Massive Fail

Cause if they were shooting for smart and witty, they missed. They’re in the overgrown teenager genre – really angry about anything and trying to say everything popular is over-rated. They have lots of “the worst… in history” that actually include significant and not to mention, really good musicians. Note: calling every popular act a […]
