Bagsakan II's success shows that PNE still have the charisma to the mass. They've been a band more than a decade. They started in 1993 in Ateneo de Manila. PNE has different musical genres from poprock to alternative rock. They provide novelty in most of their songs.

Did you know that "Hey Jude" was composed by Paul McCartney for John Lennon son's Julian?


Are you aware that "Hey Jude" was written by Paul McCartney for John Lennon's son Julian?

Mainly because in 1968, John Lennon and his wife Cynthia Lennon separated due to fact of John's affair with Yoko Ono. Soon afterwards, Paul McCartney drove out to pay a visit to Cynthia and her and Lennon's son, Julian. 

McCartney thought that they've been very good friends for millions of years and it was a bit much for him to be suddenly personae non gratae.

Cythia recalled that it was truly a surprised when McCartney arrived in their house one afternoon on his own. Cynthia was truly touched by McCartney's concern for their welfare. In his journey down, McCartney composed 'Hey Jude' in the car. She will never forget Paul's gesture of care and concern for coming to see them.

The Rocky Fellers: First Filipino Music Act to Hit the U.S. Billboard Hot 100



Maybe this is your first time to hear about the Rocky Fellers, they are a pop/rock band composed of a Filipino family. They are the first Filipino band to hit the said chart. Before the Jackson 5 and the British wave, The Rocky Fellers was known in the US and here in the Philippines in the 1960s but they just faded quickly from the music scene in the mid-1960s, due primarily to the arriving British Invasion bands.


The Rocky Fellers were discovered by Stanley Kahn, and signed them to Scepter Records.  The group was composed of  Tony, Junior, Eddie, and Albert Maligmat, and their father, Doroteo "Moro" Maligmat. Their hit single "Killer Joe" which reached the No. 16 spot of the U.S. Billboard Hot 100 in April 1963 was written by Bert Russell and Bob Elgin. They followed it up with the song "Like the Big Guys Do".

TIKTIK: The Aswang Chronicles goes Viral


A new Filipino horror movie is going viral in the net. It's the sequel to the hit Aswang starred by Lovi Poe. The new movie is like a zombie apocalypse, changing the zombies to Aswang. (Aswang is a mythical creature in Filipino folklore, a vampire like zombies.)

The movie stars both kapuso stars Lovi Poe and Dingdong Dantes. It is created and produced by Reality Entertainment with Agostodos Pictures and GMA Films.

I just heard this movie last night, and the CGI effect where really good, the only real thing there was the actors, the houses and the vehicles. Other image there are computer-generated.

There is still no plot or sypnosis of this movie in the net but I think this will follow the story line of the previous movie entitled "Aswang" in which the female protagonist is starred by Lovi Poe. She was a part of the supernatural creature called "ABWAKS", but she fall in loved with an abwak hunter. 

So based on the previous movie, the new male protagonist (Dingdong Dantes) might also fall in love with the ABWAK.
