Sharon Cuneta is Hurt, Really Hurt. Find Out Why?

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




Megastar Sharon Cuneta-Pangilinan admits that she is really hurt on the reports claiming that her uncle Sen. Tito Sotto, whom she endorsed in the Senatorial bid during the May 2010 election, is not supporting her husband's bid for Senate President.

According to Sharon, "There's a lot of drama going in the Senate na nasasaktan ako, like Sen. Tito na wala daw suporta kay Kiko. It's just sad na mismong pamilya ko pa ang di makasuporta sa amin. Masakit. It hurts me very, very much. But I still respect him. I understand."

Sharon said she felt as if she was being stabbed and slapped several times after her husband was rejected by other senators as a viable candidate for the Senate presidency.

"But I just want to make it clear I'm 150% behind my husband. As far as I'm concerned, he's already the winner," she adds.

The Megastar said she did not lobby for her husband among the senators despite endorsing some of them during the election.

Short Profiles About The New MYX VJs Ton, Julz and Robin

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)



MYX, the number one music channel in the Philippines, finally revealed the winners of the MYX VJ Search 2010.

Among the 12 finalists, 18-year-old red-haired college student Julz Savard; 21-year-old pretty boy rocker Ton Vergel De Dios and 21-year old musician Robin Nievera were chosen as the newest music ambassadors of MYX.

Get to know more about the new MYX VJ below:

Juliann "JULZ" Savard


A Creative Writing student from the Ateneo de Manila University, Julz is one of those finalists whom you can easily spot in a crowd.

Julz admits that her red hair helped her stand out. "But honestly my hair doesn't define me, I define my hair. My personality outshines everybody else. I'm not the usual girl-next-door, I'm different and it's because of that, I shine!"

Aside from her spunky attitude, this 18-year old girl stands out in the many aspects of her life. She's a Dean’s Lister for three years and a Ms. Teen Philippines at 14. "That shows my versatility, I don't limit myself. And for years I've been trying to make a break somewhere, whether in music, the fashion world or TV, and I've never given up. And look where it's brought me. I want to inspire the youth to follow their dreams. I've gotten this far, so if I can do it, so can they."


Roberto Martin "ROBIN" Nievera



His knack for making people laugh makes this 21-year old musician stand out from the rest of the bunch. Robin’s wit, humor and musical talent are a clear indication of how his music royalty parents greatly contributed to this young man who believes that "we’re never gonna survive unless we get a little crazy".

Robin shares that he has always been interested to become a MYX VJ. "It never looked like work for them. It looked more like people just being themselves, having fun in front of a camera. And I enjoy being myself around people. So I thought this would be perfect for me."

When asked about his "secret weapons" in making it to the finals, Robin shares, "I do not have any secret weapons. I cannot dance. I can sing but anyone can out sing me or outplay me on the guitar any day. I am just going to be myself. No one can be like me. So that is what i will be doing--just being me."


Jose Antonio "TON" Vergel de Dios



Ton thinks that the best part of his experience in the MYX VJ Search is the unbelievable response from so many people. "I’ve been meeting so many new people and there are just so many who have been supportive, which makes me want to be a VJ even more! "

Ton believes that he can contribute and promote MYX by showing people that music as a diverse form of art. "Just because I’m a rocker, it doesn’t mean that I don’t appreciate other kinds of music because any kind of music can be just as rock and roll as rock and roll itself. I would really like to represent the Pinoy music scene and try to make more people come together and be part of this scene."

David Fincher's’s The Social Network – Movie Preview

Posted by JED on , under | comments (0)




Justify FullThe Social Network is an upcoming true-to-life film about the makers of the immensely popular social networking site, Facebook.

The movie stars Jesse Eisenberg (Zombieland, Adventureland), pop superstar Justin Timberlake, the new Spiderman Andrew Garfield and the now grown up Joseph Mazzello (Simon Birch).

Columbia Pictures based the $47 million film on Ben Mezrich’s book The Accidental Billionaires: The Founding of Facebook, a Tale of Sex, Money, Genius and Betrayal. The Social Network tells the story of Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg, the founders of Facebook. The screenplay was written by Aaron Sorkin and the film was helmed by David Fincher.

Here is the official description from the 272 page book :
Eduardo Saverin and Mark Zuckerberg were Harvard undergraduates and best friends–outsiders at a school filled with polished prep-school grads and long-time legacies. They shared both academic brilliance in math and a geeky awkwardness with women. Eduardo figured their ticket to social acceptance–and sexual success–was getting invited to join one of the university’s Final Clubs, a constellation of elite societies that had groomed generations of the most powerful men in the world and ranked on top of the inflexible hierarchy at Harvard. Mark, with less of an interest in what the campus alpha males thought of him, happened to be a computer genius of the first order. Which he used to find a more direct route to social stardom: one lonely night, Mark hacked into the university’s computer system, creating a ratable database of all the female students on campus–and subsequently crashing the university’s servers and nearly getting himself kicked out of school. In that moment, in his Harvard dorm room, the framework for Facebook was born.

What followed–a real-life adventure filled with slick venture capitalists, stunning women, and six-foot-five-inch identical-twin Olympic rowers–makes for one of the most entertaining and compelling books of the year. Before long, Eduardo’s and Mark’s different ideas about Facebook created in their relationship faint cracks, which soon spiraled into out-and-out warfare. The collegiate exuberance that marked their collaboration fell prey to the adult world of lawyers and money. The great irony is that while Facebook succeeded by bringing people together, its very success tore two best friends apart. The Accidental Billionaires is a compulsively readable story of innocence lost–and of the unusual creation of a company that has revolutionized the way hundreds of millions of people relate to one another.
The Social Network will open the New York Film Festival on September 24 and then appear in theaters on October 1.
