Showbiz Renegade is Now Open!



Every time I watch the television comfortably seated on my throne with my little digital scepter on my hand, always ready to change channel as I please, I cannot but get pissed off with our house help getting so engrossed with all the showbiz news like a little boy salivating for that chocolate ice cream that Momma has hidden on the fridge.

No, she is not only salivating, but she adores all those celebrities to the envy of the 12 guys plus 1 on the last supper hanging on our wall.  For her, they are immaculate no matter what others say, or whatever I say contrary (which is almost always the case by the way).  And her comments about those celebrities and stars piss me off forcing me to watch a government TV station with her doing a walk-out in no time.  She forgot I am holding the scepter, wahahahaha!

During my seminary days, when those who were undergoing the formation after they hallucinated of being called to the priesthood and not realizing that the divine revelation they so thought of was just a mere product of intoxication from so much alcohol intake if not hunger and overwork; showbiz buzz and its glitz, glamor, scandals are also part of the regular routine of most seminarians side-by-side the praying of the liturgy of the hours.

I have this batch mate in the seminary when I was still considered by our formator as a “very obedient seminarian”, who says will die if cannot read the latest showbiz news of the day courtesy of one of our only means of connection to the world, the Inquirer newspaper.  The other one of course is the television, for which only comes to life during lunch break from 12:30 – 1PM and at night during 7:30 – 8:00 PM.  Meralco is not the seminary’s bestfriend in this case.  And ooops, while others have a third one:  a mobile phone they hide on their shoe box or under the deep maze inside their mattress.  Don’t ask why I know where seminarians hide their mobile phones, okay?

This guy is a character and a very intelligent one; our valedictorian actually, seated on front row while I was doodling during classes in row 4.

After breakfast, we would all run as fast as we could to get hold of the news paper; with him getting the showbiz section and throwing all the rest for us to pick up and fight over like cats and dogs in white robes and clerical shirts.

And guess what?  This batchmate of mine is set to be ordained next year after arriving from a tedious formation in the U.S.  That is what showbiz news could get you:  getting ordained.  Now I am thinking that maybe I should have loved showbiz news early on instead of hiding my mobile phone inside a shoe box, and I would have become a candidate for ordination too next year.  Tsk, tsk, tsk.  Nah.

Anyways, to make the long story short, I am simply launching this new blog of mine:  ShowbizRenegade.Com.

This blog is simply all about showbiz news and gossips and all, but from a perspective of someone who has a love and hate relationship with showbiz buzz and personalities; someone who is not really so damn in love with the hypocrisy, tasteless acting, sex scandals, liposuction, boob jobs, lip-synching and total surgically-manipulated of seemingly perfect and sizzling hot bods printed on the centerfold of men’s magazines.  But hey, I know how to praise something that has real worth too, so long as our house  help is not the one posting an article here or dictating me to write about her undying love for the Boys Over Flowers.

By the way, lots of thanks to Jehz for helping me out with my new blog by sharing some space of his online abode to accommodate my antics and new online adventure.  Thanks Bro!  (Santino) 😀

Now I am already running out of words eh…I guess that is all, and welcome to my new blog after a very long introduction.  Lots of things still to be done here on making this place cozier for everyone including all those Magdalag soldiers on the image posted.

Hope you will enjoy your stay here and let us raid the showbiz closets and stop the hiding of mobile phones on shoe boxes.  Har, har, har!

    Many people thinks that seminaries are some of the most boring of places in the earth. But so many funny things really happen inside the walls of seminaries, just remembering them makes me giggle, LOL!

    The RT button is now working just fine bro with this theme. This RT button is quite sensitive and choosy on which theme to work.

    Lewd news and scandals? Hmmm…I think Doc Z emailed a youtube video of himself. I have watched it yet but I think it could easily qualify as a lewd one, ehehhehe LOL
