The Philippine Association of National Advertisers (PANA) has some nice suggestions on the showing of political advertisements: they are suggesting the use of a method employed in advertising to test whether a product - a soap, detergent, shampoo, food what have you -- is true to its claims: the TRUTH TEST.

Before public-official wannabees force their TV ads down our tired and tortured brains PANA suggests that their ads should be able to meet the "truth" criteria, which involves such qualifiers like if what the candidate is saying is true, if the candidate has credibility, if he is able to explain his planned programs (aka promises) properly, and the fourth one i forgot (waah sorry i'm nearly braindead from work). and unless they meet this criteria they shouldn't be shown to the public (thus sparing this poor nation from further massive bobonification). i think this is a GREAAAAAT idea. in fact i think this is the best idea i've seen reported on TV in the last ten years, i mean, days.

PANA says they are going to present this to the COMELEC in the following days. i really think they should get moving and i mean ASAP before the likes of Mike Defensor's moronic "Tol" political ads swamp our everyday lives and loot our brains of any hint of intelligence left. i mean keeeerizzt, what was mike defensor thinking putting an ad on tv with comedian pooh spoofing manny pacquiao and keanna reeves and some other bad actors calling out to him "Tol!!!" and then we see him looking back (presumably to us) and then smiling a smile ( complete with kasosyalan braces) that looked like he was about to fart??? anubeeeeh mike, low-budget is nice and all, but puhleazzzze, your political ad lacks sincerity and not to mention SENSE. okay?!? now hire another ad agency, better actors and please remove your mortifying ad from our tubes. lintek.

in other election-related issues, my aunt is one fierce woman. i'm proud of her. thanks to mr.conrado de quiros for once again making it clear that COMELEC people are idiots.

in happier matters...

i love that bianca is back to blogging! welcome back biancz! *much love*

my cousin lindy sings sooooo goood! i'm writing to her singing Moonpools and Catterpillars' "Heaven" in the background...


I believe in heaven and know
that I should just accept it all
So content with the paths that I walk on
surely I should see it all
So take care and don't go to far,
I will miss your soul
When the distance grows
and the nights are long
and your scared at times
and you wonder why
Take care and don't go to far
I will miss your soul
I've looked into the sky a hundred times
and I've seen the stars that shine so bright
I'm sure that one of them is you, my friend
Watching and waiting and hoping that
I'll be alright
So take care and don't go to far
I will miss your soul
And when the distance grows
and the nights are long
and you're scared at times
and you wonder why
Take care I will miss your soul
The road back home is shorter than you know
~ Heaven, Moonpools and Caterpilars
