No More Scotty Crawford for Rebel Circus and Friday Slide

When I arrived at the office this morning, these are the things I did before doing my work:

  • Tuned in to Jam 88.3 on my phone’s radio. (I listened too while traveling)
  • Logged in to Twitter and unchecked the Protect my Tweets box.
  • Twitted this: @ScottyLive, I’ll miss you when Friday morning comes. This is my favorite day listening to Jam. Friday slide + I am in love w/ your playlist.

Why? Because Scotty Crawford is leaving the show and I just knew it just this morning. I wanted to tell him that I really enjoyed his awesome music during Fridays. Alam mo naman ‘pag protected ang tweets, hindi ‘yon nababasa nung minention mo ‘yong sinsabi mo unless pina-follow ka nya (tama ba ‘yong logic dito. LOL). Scotty has been one of my favorite DJs, so I grabbed the chance to say that I will miss him and his awesome playlist, way of saying THANK YOU na rin.

After a while, I didn’t expect that he will mention all those people who gave him sweet and good luck messages. And luckily, HE MENTIONED MY NAME. NAKAKA-KILIG! Said his THANK YOU message for all those people who supported him and listened to his shows for years. I went to the Connect button, and there, Scotty Retweeted my tweet for him. Doble kilig! πŸ™‚

 

Retweeted by Scotty πŸ™‚

 

But honestly, I really don’t why he’s leaving Jam (together with DJ Sasha, his girlfriend and co-host for Rebel Circus and oh Show Suzuki is also a co-host πŸ™‚ ). He did not mention why he’s leaving but maybe he did explain from the previous days. I listen to the show but not as religiously as l do with Friday Slide (Better Fridays). To all the listeners of Jam, you all know why it is called Better Fridays. πŸ˜€

Sabi nga ng isang kaibigan at officemate ko sa tweet nya, “…my daily dose of Scotty’s ‘british accent’…”. And I agree with her, it’s one of the reasons why I listen to his shows. I’m telling you, when you listen to Scotty, maho-hook ka sa accent nya. LOL.And another thing I love about James”Scotty” Crawford, he is also a big fan of Chris Cornell. We’re almost the same when it comes to music. Kaya nga I religiously listen to his Friday morning slot (6 am – 9 am).

But seriously, I will miss Scotty every morning, especially on Fridays. I will miss his straightforward comment on things, his British accent and most importantly, HIS AWESOME MUSIC. Until next time, Scotty. You made my Fridays better. Again, THANK YOU for sharing your kind of music.

 

By the way, there will be a new show on Monday. Of course with news DJs. Let’s listen, guys πŸ™‚

Maroon 5 Live in Manila Once Again

I’ve seen this American Pop Rock band from L.A. last year (2011). It was my first time to see Maroon 5 live and hearing Adam Levine‘s voice. ANG SEXY LANG πŸ™‚ Good thing I’m working already when they visited again the Philippines and I wasn’t half-hearted to say, “Yes, I’m gonna see them!”.

Now, Maroon 5 will be coming back to Manila for a one night live concert this September. AND I AM HOPING I’LL BE ABLE TO SEE THEM AGAIN. πŸ™‚

I’m Gay

Minsan hindi ko na alam kung may mga hints akong nabibigay para mapagkamalan akong Gay o Lesbian. Naaasar ba ‘ko ‘pag ganun? Minsan oo, pero sa tinagal-tagal na paghihinala ng mga ibang tao, ng mga kakilala ko, nasanay na rin ako. Ika nga, naging running joke na lang sa circle of friends ko. I’m sure alam naman ng mga kaibigan ko kung ano talaga ang preference ko. Hindi ko na rin alam kung bakit hindi ako naiinsulto ‘pag may ganyang senaryo. Eh parang dumikit na sa sistema ko, parang “Ok, I don’t give a shit about it“. Sige, pagkwentuhan n’yo na lang ‘yan para sumaya kayo. Seriously, wala na rin akong paki kung ganun man ang tingin nila sa’kin. πŸ™‚ Mahirap ipilit ang paliwanag mo sa ibang tao.

Bigla bigla na lang kasi na may magtatanong na former classmate from high school kung ako ba daw ay isang lesbian. Alam mo sinagot ko? “Ano sa tingin mo? :)”. Ang siste kasi, nakita daw nya yung mga wall photos ko sa Facebook,eh may mga pictures doon ng mga babaeng celebrities na crush ko. Aminado naman ako, nagka-crush ako sa mga girls. Pucha, masama ba na super naa-appreciate ko ‘yong beauty ng isang babae? So, ayun na ba ang hint para ako’y mapagkamalang isang lesbian? HAHAHAHAHAHAHA.

Kung lesbian nga ako, bakit naiisip ko na lalaki ang katabi ko sa kama kapag umuulan at malamig? πŸ™‚

Naalala ko tuloy ‘yong interview ko sa isang HR 3 years ago. Originally posted on my multiply site:

9:30 am. Wait ako sa Reception Area ng isang company sa U. N. After 10 minutes, Lumabas si Miss…(ayoko pangalanan). Miss ng HR.

Miss: Wait lang, Marco, ah.

Marco: Ok po, Thanks.

Wait. Wait. Then ding!

Miss: Marco, interview mo na kay Miss…(sensitive)

Pasok naman ako sa isang room. Andun si Miss na mag-iinterview sakin.

Usap. Usap. Usap. Syempre alam nyo na kung ano mga pinagusapan namin.

Then…

Β Miss I (Interviewer): Sana hindi ka ma-offend sa tanong ko.

Ako: Ok lang po. (SMILE. Dont have a clue)

Miss I: Are you a straight person?

Tinignan ko sya na may tanong sa aking mata. Then…

Ako: You mean?

Miss I: Straight. (with matching hands gesture). I don’t know how to explain this.

Ako: Sige lang po.

Miss I: Straight. As in Gay.

I looked at her with a wondering eyes.

Ako: Gay? You mean Happy?

Miss: No, not like that. Gay as in…(quote, unquote gesture)

Ako: Bakla? So maarte, you mean, ma’am?

Miss I: No. As in Baklang bakla. You know, opposite of tomboy?

Sa loob loob ko, TAWA AKO NG TAWA.

Ako: Hahaha (demure). Hindi po ako ganun

Miss I: Pasenysa na. You look like boyish kasi.

Ako: Sabi nga po nila.

Tumatawa na kami pareho nyan.

Miss I: Hope hindi kita na-offend sa tanong ko.

Ako: Ok lang po talaga. (Tawa pa rin ako)

Si Miss, nakangiti.

 

Maraming judgmental sa mundo, isa na rin ako dun. Ang sarap na lang sumagot ng, “OO, may problema ka?” sabay smile. Less paliwanag ‘yan. πŸ™‚
