Seven Years After, ERASERHEADS Reunite! Performs 'Minsan' for Smart #AllOutSurf 30 TVC

Old school will always be cool. 

The comeback of trends from the 90's - Pokémonbrown lipstick and Doc Martens boots  - only shows it was the best era ever. It was also the golden age of Pinoy rock music.

And when you say Pinoy rock, the first band that comes to mind is the Eraserheads. Ely Buendia, Marcus AdoroRaymund Marasigan, and Buddy Zabala are the four men behind the Eraserheads, one of the most important bands in the history of Pinoy rock music.

The last time the Eraserheads performed together on one stage was in 2009. Recently, Smart was able to bring them back together for a special private performance.

Individually, Ely, Marcus, Raymund, and Buddy are talented artists but together as the Eraserheads, they are legendary. Their time apart has only served to hone their talents and personalities. Other artists can perform Eraserheads songs well but no one can do "Magasin," "Ang Huling El Bimbo," Ligaya," and "Pare Ko" like the original.

And as they say, "iba talaga 'pag kumpleto." Whether it is entertainment or anything else, people look for the whole package. In the same way, Smart's prepaid call and text bundles are awesome, and its surf bundles equally so. But if you combine call, text and mobile internet, you have the most comprehensive prepaid deal ever.


On August 19, the telco launches ALLOUTSURF 30, the firstcomplete data, call and text, offer in the market. For Php 30, prepaid subscribers get 2 days of 300MB data with free access to Facebook, unlimited texts to all networks, and 30 minutes calls to Smart, TNT and Sun.

There is more.

"The All Out Surf campaign, like the Eraserheads' performances, will show how being complete is always the best thing, whether it refers to a band or a promo. Seeing themtogether brings back so many memories and shows the powerof being complete," said Kathy C. Carag, Smart Mobile Business Head.

"Never miss out on anything that you're passionate about,whether it's your family members' and friends' posts onFacebook or browsing your favorite new websites.ALLOUTSURF 30 makes sure you're connected when youneed to be and don't miss out on anything important," she added.

Now, there's no need to choose between call, text, and mobile data. You can have it all with ALLOUTSURF 30, the firstpromo offer to give subscribers what they want and need.

If you've just booked an Uber ride home and you need to callor text your driver, no problem. You can also check your emailmessages and social messaging apps. Information is just a clickor a swipe away with ALLOUTSURF 30.

"Smart's nationwide network makes sure you can keep in touch via call & text, and access the Internet for the things that matter like emails and online messages," said Carag.

ALLOUTSURF 30 was created for today's active digital users - from the student on a budget who always has to choosebetween two promos, or the young professional who alwaysrelies on Wi-Fi, to the grandma who loves to play Candy Crushand needs Facebook for "lives."

(Video) James Reid Takes Off Clothes to Reveal Reinvented Body #NobodyLikeJames

"Till I Met You" lead actor James Reid takes off clothes to reveal his reinvented body for the latest Century Tuna campaign.

James Reid is the latest endorser of Century Tuna featured in a sizzling new television commercial, now airing, that teasingly highlights his totally hot and chiseled bod. Actually, the TVC and billboard is part of an all-new advertising campaign created around the idea of transformation and metamorphosis, where James proudly joins the illustrious company of Anne Curtis and Derek Ramsay.

And why James Reid? Well, it’s pretty evident that from the time he entered showbiz six years ago through the Pinoy Big Brother Teen Clash to the present, he’s really been able to transform himself - in terms of his private life, career and of course his physique!

Check out video below:

A video posted by Jeng Bauto (@showbiznest) on

While others would probably turn complacent and simply rest on their achievements, James continues to further himself and his craft. He’s clearly more self-confident now and has since shed his timid persona and his lanky build. He hits the gym regularly, where weightlifting is his preferred workout, and maintains a balanced diet consisting of good carbs, no rice, and, of course, Century Tuna.

It’s no secret that James has had a string of box-office hits to his name (Diary ng Panget and Talk Back and You’re Dead), a much-watched teleserye (On The Wings of Love, which enjoyed top ratings during its run), a highly popular loveteam in JaDine, plus a Platinum album to boot and a new teleserye Till I Met You, all while keeping his feet firmly on the ground. So what’s not to love about him?

Albay Rep. Joey Salceda Says Pokemon Go and Not PUVs Causing Metro Manila Traffic

Albay Rep. Joey Salceda opposed the banning of provincial buses on EDSA and the eventual shutdown of its terminals and said that the popular game Pokemon Go poses a "bigger threat" to Metro Manila traffic as against to Public Utility Vehicles (PUV).

In a press statement, Salceda questioned the "kneejerk" reaction to the issue of metro traffic, which he said had no "fundamental basis" and is "anti-poor."

"Where is the empirical evidence - time-and-motion study of current situation and simulation projections - to underpin as fundamental basis to this policy, which is always the kneejerk first move whenever the issue of Metro Manila traffic [is raised]?" Salceda said.

"Pokemon-playing in private cars pose more threat of aggravation to Metro Manila than provincial buses," he argued.

He noted that some Pokemon Go players stop at certain points or "lures" where rare characters of the game are caught.

"If you are rich enough to maintain a private car, you must be rich enough to yourself and your kids an Android, iPad or iPhone. Multiply that by the 2.5 million cars in Metro Manila," Salceda argued.

The lawmaker said that compared to the number of private vehicles in Metro Manila, there are only 3,300 provincial buses, with each carrying 50.

"It is anti-poor since provincial bus passengers are those who can only pay 450 (ordinary) and 750 (aircon) and cannot afford the more expensive plane fares," Salceda said.

"The measure is injurious to poor rural people in terms of: (1) additional inconvenience; (2) additional 'minimum' fare; (3) additional time of destination; and (4) double loading," Salceda added.
