MJ

Posted on: June 26, 2009

I grew up listening to Michael Jackson. My dad and aunties were huge fans. I remember them renting VHS tapes of Michael Jackson’s videos and concerts and us watching it while munching on chips.

I remember being creeped out by Thriller and Smooth Criminal, loving Billy Jean, and singing along to Black or White.

Even my little brother and sister, who were both born years after MJ was swarmed with controversies, loved the King of Pop. They’d watch the DVD of his MTVs every morning. At 8am, our TV would be blaring songs like Beat It, Remember The Time, and Heal The World.

No explanation needed. LOL-ing at you, though. 😀

I loved Darla in “The Little Rascals” movie.  She was the love interest of Alfalfa. I find her sooo adorable and sweet looking. 🙂

The girl who played the part is Brittany Ashton Holmes. When the movie was released in 1994, she was only five years old. I did some web surfing, wondering how she looks now.

Ever since we saw the flying house tied to balloons almost a year ago, the boyfriend and I have anticipated Disney-Pixar’s movie, Up. We even planned to push our trip to Alaminos by a few hours so we can watch the first screening on May 29. Much to our dismay, the movie was released all over the world, but not here. WTF.

Carl Fredricksen tied hundreds of balloons to his house to make it fly to South America.

Carl Fredricksen tied hundreds of balloons to his house to make it fly to South America, a promise he made to his late wife Ellie.

When we came back from the province, we were both dying to watch the movie. Especially because some friends have raved about seeing it online already. Thanks to pirated DVDs, we got to watch it. Hee. Malabo, pero pwede na. That’s how addicted we are to the movie.

The verdict? The movie was excellent. Our long wait was worth it.

We left for Alaminos last Friday and came back this Tuesday. I brought home some Alaminos longganisa, plenty of photos and these thoughts.

The boyfriend cheered me up and told me not to feel bad. Anyway if things work out, I might end up speaking (or, at least, understanding) the language. LOL.

If things work out, I'll understand everything they talk about. Hee.
