“Ground breaking for CCP’s new Black Box Theater set”

THE complex development of the Cultural Center of the Philippines takes off with a new Black Box Theater to be constructed in the sunken parking area of the CCP complex, thanks to the efforts of theater arts patron Ignacio Gimenez and brother Roberto Olanday with the support and administrative assistance of the Locsin Partners. A ground breaking ceremony was held on January 19, 2016 to mark the beginning of the said venue’s construction.

It’s been two years since we’ve invited you to join our “circle of friends”. You didn’t reply. We could not locate you…

And suddenly, one fine evening of a starry night in the month of January 2016, you appeared.

Your eyes were like crystals- shining so brightly in china blue and colors changing hue.

AND FINALLY, YOU SAID: “YES, I AM PART OF YOUR GROUP”.

You explained that out of insanity, you killed yourself. And that’s an excuse, a good excuse, that you didn’t commit a MORTAL SIN.

You were so beautiful, Vincent, when “we” saw you.

AND NOW, YOU ARE THE 92nd “FRIEND” OF SSSIP’S AWE BLOG SITE.

We are so happy to be with you…

VINCENT.

AND “FOREVER”.

 

(as the words were written, in the galaxies of stars and planets- hidden in the fixed dimensions of time and space- and WRITTEN IN ROBERT MANUGUID SILVERIO’S “BOOK OF LOVE”, until FOREVER.)*

cinema one’s most succesful film- “that thing called tadhana”, now available in dvd’s…

“Yes, it’s indeed Cinema One Originals’ most successful film in all aspects”, Mr. Ronald Arguelles, head of Cinema One, assured a blogger. “It earned so well, we got many sponsors and all, it entered the mainstream, its stars blossomed fully after the film- that’s why I said that.”

“And now, we’re releasing it in DVD form”, Mr. Arguelles continued. “Everyone can see it by now, they just have to buy the DVD which is now on the market. Just a month ago, the book form and script form of the film was launched at National Bookstore, with its writer Antoinette Jadaone writing signatures on the book. Truly, it’s a very successful film project.”

Relish the film… be entertained… capture the magic of cinema right in your own home. Buy and watch the DVD of “That Thing Called Tadhana”!!!

Need I say more, Ronald Arguelles?
