FOCAP on junking of ABS-CBN franchise bid: We won’t flinch from this attack

Inquirer Breaking News - 15 hours 3 min ago
MANILA, Philippines --- The Foreign Correspondents Association of the Philippines (FOCAP) assures the public that they would not flinch from the attacks against press freedom, after the House of Representatives denied ABS-CBN's bid for a new franchise. According to FOCAP, the group knows that this is another attack on the country's vaunted free speech because this organization was founded during the "dark days" of late dictator and former president Ferdinand Marcos' martial law regime, when, incidentally, ABS-CBN was also not allowed to operate freely. "[FOCAP] condemns the vote of the House of Representatives' committee on legislative franchises to reject the license renewal o...

Seeing double: Identical twins Donnie and Rocco Masihi on playing brothers in HBO series

Inquirer Breaking News - 15 hours 21 min ago
  It isn't easy to watch the dark tale framing HBO's "I Know This Much is True." The stunning six-part series, which is being streamed on HBO Go, is based on Wally Lamb's 1998 novel about middle-aged house painter Dominick Birdsey and his schizophrenic identical twin brother Thomas, who grew up enduring years of gut-wrenching abuse at the hands of their stepfather. Both characters, each as physically and emotionally distinct as the other, are limned to gritty perfection by Mark Ruffalo, who commands the screen with immersive and distinctly delineated portrayals that never punch below their weight.

Food, travel and beauty channel for K aficionados

Inquirer Breaking News - 15 hours 32 min ago
  Just like many Pinoys, the quarantine period has made me join the "K-drama Kulto." My mantra now goes, "I no longer want drama in my life unless it's K-drama."Binge-watching Korean shows serves as an antidote to the stress brought about by the pandemic. "Ko-vid" (Korean videos) chases our Covid blues away, somehow. If there's one Pinay who's an authority on anything Korean, it's Grace Lee. I fondly call her "Yeppuda" (beautiful). She put up her own YouTube channel, which features cooking demos of dishes that we see in K-dramas and other interesting stuff. Hallyu-luia! (Hallyu refers to the Korean wave.) Here's my chat with Grace: Tell us about your YouTube channel....

Regine reveals she usually ‘faints’ when doing dramatic roles

Inquirer Breaking News - 15 hours 36 min ago
  Singer-actress Regine Velasquez reveals why she now turns down offers to do dramatic roles. "They affect me so much physically and emotionally that I often faint," she explains. "Drama is just too hard. It's difficult to cry on cue. Also, I'm the type of actress who can't let go of my character so easily. When I'm already able to get the right emotion, I just can't shake it off when I leave the set. I unconsciously bring home the character with me. After a while, I'd get a really terrible headache and then chest pain. Soon after, I'd hyperventilate and then faint." She recalls that her most dramatic performance was for Joyce Bernal's "Paano Kita Iibigin" (2007), opposite...

Inquirer Breaking News - 15 hours 41 min ago
  If it weren't for the COVID-19 pandemic, "Such Pretty Forks in the Road," Alanis Morissette's ninth studio album and her first in eight years, would have already been out by now.However, the alternative rock star opted to postpone its release to a later date, saying that releasing new music didn't seem appropriate, given the situation everyone is in right now. "I just thought it intuitively doesn't feel right to be putting a record out about one woman's crisis when we're in the middle of a pandemic," she said in a recent interview with Rolling Stone magazine. The people around Alanis, however, seemed to be "50-50" about her decision. "One would say, 'Yeah, wait, pleas...

Palace reporters on ABS-CBN’s lost franchise bid: One less watchdog is one step towards tyranny

Inquirer Breaking News - Fri, 07/10/2020 - 23:56
MANILA, Philippines --- Journalists covering Malacaang on Friday denounced the decision of lawmakers to reject ABS-CBN's franchise application, calling it as another attack on press freedom and a step towards tyranny. "Today is a dark day for journalism," the Malacaang Press Corps (MPC) said in a statement.
