My good friend and former roommate in College texted me this morning and asked me to see a copy of The Philippine Daily Inquirer. He told me that the headline has, sort of, a double-meaning. So instead of going to my favorite news stand, thanks to technology, I went to the website of PDI and looked for the digital edition of today’s broadsheet.
At first glance, and if the reader is not discriminating enough, it may appear that the Church being referred to the headline is the Catholic Church (Haters gonna hate. Call it rash judgement but this country is dominantly Catholic.) The church mentioned here is the United Church of Christ in the Philippines (UCCP), who, sues Congresswoman Gloria Arroyo in charge of the extra judicial killings of their members.
So much for that. Let’s just leave the issue in court. Let the truth come out and the guilty be punished. If there is still justice in the Land of Juan.
________
As usual, as what most of you my faithful readers knew, the Republic is giving you a dose of rundown of current events (with a little commentary and heckling on the side) and his passion for front pages and headlines of broadsheets, tabloids, and magazines.
Brace yourselves. Here we go:
Total Lunar Eclipse - of the heart - Astronomy enthusiasts are fortunate to see one of the longest lunar eclipse of the decade - including me. I had my forever alone coffee party/ lamay on our house’s veranda to watch the bloody moon. And the clouds didn’t fail me. The sight was spectacular (and creepy). See you again lunar eclipse this December.
Miley Cyrus in the house yo! - Miley Cyrus is here in the country for a concert at the Mall of Asia concert grounds tonight. I will not watch her concert but I added some of her songs on my playlist (You mad? This is not something new. I already added Taylor Swift and the Jonas Brothers before. Haha!). and, Ted Failon became a Philippine trending topic last night because he mispronounced Miley as “Mey-Lee” on TV Patrol. Okay.
China is one of the biggest country yet they still fight for their claim on the Spratly group of islands. (Read more about China here)
Congratulations De La Salle University and the La Salle Brothers for your one hundred years in the Philippines. I have a question though. Do you think Saint John Baptist De La Salle is also celebrating in heaven? Because if my memory serves me right, the Saint’s dream is to have a school for the impoverished. And it is obvious that that is not the case in the country. And..okay enough. Animo La Salle!
Metro Manila is on heightened alert for terrorist plot. Let us be vigilant and be aware of our surroundings.
Our beloved former Congreswoman Gloria Arroyo has been hospitalized for neck ailment. And according to news updates, she has already been discharged from the hospital but she will have to wear her neck brace for a week. Sayang ang new look. Get well soon Madam.
President Aquino appointed executive secretary and his shooting buddy Paquito Ochoa as chair of the Presidential Anti-Organized Crime Commission. Akala ko si Mar Roxas na naman. Good luck Sir!
Zawahiri was named by Al Qaida as successor to Osama Bin Laden. I give him 8 years before he’s captured/ killed by the United States forces. 
And as for other and personal things:
Does Coca-Cola still sell Coke 500? You know, the one mentioned in the Eraserheads song Tindahan ni Aling Nena. I remember buying Coke 500 ages ago together with pan de coco. Orgasmic merienda! Ah, life’s little joys.
I expect heavy traffic on Sunday from Los Baños to Calamba and vice versa. Nah, not for the Rizal @ 150. i heard that Dingdong Dantes and the other Kapuso artists will be having a show at SM Calamba. Oh-key.
Rebecca Black appeared to have gained weight on Katy Perry’s Last Friday Night music video. And yeah, she looks, uhm, prettier.
I am excited for The Dawn’s Enveloped Ideas album. It is a tribute by different artists to The Dawn’s 25th anniversary. It contains covers of the hit songs by The Dawn much like 2005’s Ultraelectromagneticjam.

This photo was taken last Monday at CFA’s studio (by the amazing Fr. Stephen Cuyos, MSC) while we were setting up the backdrop for the interviews to be conducted. This explains the haggard look. We were once called Tres Marias by a camp participant since we three are always together (and thus the title).
Congratulations to us! :D ILY both ♥

On July 26-31, 2011, eight of the country’s best young dancers, known as the group Legit Status will represent the Philippines in the 2011 World Hip Hop Dance Championship in Las Vegas, the most respected international hip hop dance competition.
The group will compete in the Varsity Division (for dancers eighteen and under) of the prestigious competition, which is operated by the world’s foremost authority on street dance, Hip Hop International, who is also the creators of the hit television show America’s Best Dance Crew.
Legit Status competes with the top dance crews from over thirty nations and with each performing their two-minute routines, all determined to earn the championship title, international bragging rights, cash and prizes at the Red Rock Resort and Casino, Las Vegas, Nevada, in the US.  Thanks to the Philippine All-Stars, the first and only crew in the world to have bagged the world title twice in the Adult Division of the said competition (in 2006 and 2008), and prominent Filipinos in America’s Best Dance Crew winners Jabbawockeez and Poreotics as well as Filipino members in the USA and Canada dance teams, the Philippines has now become one of the most reputable countries in terms of street dance, winning the admiration of the international hip hop community. 
The potential to win is big. In the 2009 Varsity Division, Legit Status placed 7th out of 41 teams during preliminaries, and advanced to the finals. In 2010, Legit Status placed 6th out of 42. This is the third year that Legit Status was invited to be an official representative of the Philippines to the competition to compete in the Varsity Division.
The teams that competed in those three years were formed by coach Vimi Rivera, a core member of UP’s The Crew. Rivera is also the current coach of the Skechers Streetdance Battle 2010 Champion La Salle Greenhills Airforce, NCC Dance 2011 champion Saint Benilde Romançon Dance Company, and NCC Dance 2011 runner up AC Dance Troupe. 
The current line-up of Legit Status is composed of eight handpicked members from different prominent dance troupes: LSGH Airforce, AC Dance Troupe, Claret Hataw, and the CSA Dance Troupe. Most of the members are now incoming college freshmen, and all are full-time students juggling school with frequent training sessions, yet these eight teenagers choose to remain devoted to their passion—dance.
The team is seeking support to make their dreams of the bagging the championship for their country come true. Legit Status will be having a fundraising concert on June 25, 2011 at the Market! Market! Activity Center. Should you be interested in sponsoring this event, e-mail legitstatusonline@gmail.com or contact Gabby Dario at (0917) 570-9190.

RE:BLOG — YoungStar features Philippines’ Tumblr Royalty
We at Young Star thought it was about time to meet the Royal Tumblr Family. The kings and queens of site traffic, and appropriately armed with weapons to keep their kingdoms in order: the cameras, the laptops and the iPhones and Blackberries for good measure. If the Internet is their castle, then empowerment is their creed. After all, the medium is the message to the royal subjects: whoever you are, you are your most socially lucrative asset. Follow the leader? How about being one yourself.

I‘d like your help to spread this news. They’re seeing these photos? So. Dogs and cats, living or dead, are being used as shark bait by amateur fishermen from the island of Reunion, which is under French administration. Animal protection organizations and local authorities revealed the information. The small volcanic island off the east coast of Africa is full of stray dogs. To get an idea of the size of the problem, more than 150,000 animals.Camera crews were sent by Reha Hutin to film the atrocities committed after being exposed to on television, and, if possible, on the Internet. The news was not very widespread and still the problem continues. There was a petition, but the link I found was damaged. REBLOG PEOPLE, FOR GOD’S SAKE!

wtf. i’m gonna cry.
