Ahem

Ruel S. De Vera in the Sunday Inquirer Magazine (14 Jan. 2007):

Click behind the curtain

Yes, he writes on theater, among other things, for the Inquirer, but Gibbs Cadiz keeps a blog (www.gibbscadiz.com) that skews wide and witty on matters oriented with both stage and screen—and beyond.

Recent points of discussion include the myriad incarnations of ZsaZsa Zaturnnah, the life of Jose Rizal and Cadiz's favorite YouTube treasures. It's quite a ride and Cadiz doesn't hold his tongue. Find out what he considers laos (passé) and what’s not.

Read and discover how not to write a press release (“Forget the words and turns of phrase that you imagine will send readers into orgasms. Haller, you're in PR, not creative writing”), how to remember John Lennon and, best of all, read some of the most incisive and entertaining insights on different local stage productions.

Ahem talaga! Ang tindi ng advertisement. Pakape ka naman! Dumarami na fans mo. Inquirer has to do something about it. A regular column would be nice, di ba? Patay, baka may ma-insecure, he he. Mabuhay Ka!

small world gibbs. ruey is a friend of mine too. i think im going to throw a party when i visit PDI (joke--nut you can ask lito zulueta can foot the bill). i have friends from every corner of pasong tamo. lito z is another. carmen abis and sandy prieto romualdez were my college classmates too. joey nolasco's nephew was my student. gani yambot and sandy spearheaded inquirer's donation to the UP arts and letters building when i was doing some work as associate dean. rito asilo i and ii (i have not seen the siblings since 1st year college ages back when we were all pre-med students) used to attend activities in a student center. the asilos were also my batchmates in ROTC. i wonder if the asilos would still remember me. christian esguerra is of course several years below me in college. i remember many other names. the PDI building is full of luminaries. the small building is one big social hall.

p.s. you must publish another book of witty observations based on your blog and PDI articles.

Gibbs! Can you congratulate Ruey for me on his recent marriage? I knew him from his TA days--yes, he did grace the Ateneo stage once. :-)

wow! you da man, gibbs. malakas spike nito sa traffic mo! :P all the more to move into your own domain, hehe.

gibbs cadiz said...

hello ARYO! wag na humirit, hehe, editors are not allowed to have columns. company policy. :)

ey VON, let's see. so far, wala pa. :)

hello WENDELL, i'll remember that ha, you'll throw a party at PDI pagbalik mo. we can charge it to lito's account... sige, years from now pag retired na ako i'll get serious about writing a book. you'll have to edit it, write the intro or provide the most gushy blurb, haha! :)

hey CORSARIUS, oo nga e, got my own domain na pero haven't migrated pa to it. your help will be needed soon! as for the traffic, not much yet. asan kaya sila? hehe. which may mean one thing even after some good words like that: what i mostly blog about (teatro pa!) remains very niche stuff. asa pa ba, haha. :)

gibbs cadiz said...

ey MCVIE, sorry na-skip kita! will tell ruey as soon as he gets back from his honeymoon. so what plays did you both get to do with tanghalang ateneo? :)

beektur said...

ahem. dapat talaga i keep your "friendship" or at the very least, acquaintance. para may isa akong kaibigang sikat. tsupoy. ;)

snglguy said...

Double ahem on that! :-)

Jaypee said...

I didn't know you worked at the Inquirer. Like Corsarius said, good promotion for your blog. Yeah, you should get your own domain. It's worth it! I'm happy I got my own domain last year. Hehe :D

gibbs cadiz said...

katsupoy, talaga, BEEKTUR! btw, salamat sa leather backpack. ganda! di ko yun afford on my own. :)

SNGLGUY, thanks. :)

ey JAYPEE, i do have a domain, except i haven't migrated to it. soon, i hope. :)
