I write better when I smoke. Don’t ask me to reduce it to a science.


Why would Dolphy take the Pep test? The man has achieved more than most of us ever will, and he did it without the benefit of a formal education. So why do this now? Manny Pacquiao, I can understand. But Dolphy?

I know alot of people are rhapsodizing about how getting a diploma is such a tremendously important thing. But let’s face it, Dolphy is proof that a diploma is NOT a condition sine qua non to success. I can’t help but wince at the irony of it. The man who exemplifies success outside of the formal education system, at the twilight of his career suddenly kowtows to that system he never really needed.

Why am I bitching?

I’m not really actually bitching. I’m just disappointed. And I know that the drum-beaters of formal education – like Jesli Lapus – will be capitalizing on this to further solidify the mindset that the only path to success is through school. Well, that’s bullshit.

Former prezzies, by their definition, face no such prohibition. But in the same breath, Maceda also sez that they know an Erap candidacy will be the subject of a disqual case – but […]
  • Escalation 30 December 2008
    I still think the Pangandaman’s shouldn’t have retaliated even if dela Paz threw the first punch. But is anyone really surprised at the escalation in the story-telling on both sides? BTW, I think we can dispense with the age angle nao.
  • Etiquette 29 December 2008
    Unless you’re spoiling for a fight, assume that the writer has some basis for what she writes. Don’t make like a lawyer and ask retarded questions in an attempt to lay the foundation for whatever point you’re trying to make.
