End Make D Parflays Dance.

Courtesy of Boyong and the V-Monster (looks like Bryanboy beat me to the link again), comes the funniest thing I've seen all month: brand-new Pinoy internet celebrity Alyssa Alano, with her incomparable version of Sixpence None The Richer's "Kiss Me" (or rather, "Keys Me"). And hats off to the genius who supplied the brutally funny videoke subtitles. (You may need the real lyrics to figure out what she's singing.)

Watch her YouTube video here; thank me later.

p.s. On a slightly more serious note: Ian Gamazon and Neill dela Llana's Cavite is one hell of a terrific film, and if you're living in the SF Bay Area or San Diego, please do make plans to see it. I'll be posting a longer entry later, but take my word for it: it's very good. (Yes, we can talk about the politically problematic parts later.)

Dennis Lim's review for the Voice is here.

and i thought i was the only one who had trouble figuring out the words to that song! as for the singing itself, good lord. the viva web site says: "Alyssa, whose top talents she lists as dancing and singing, knows that showbiz is her natural element" -- um, if those are her top talents...poor kid. well, she's a "hotbabe" and 5'5", so i guess that's talent enough to be in showbiz.

Gads, it doesn't matter how many times I watch it, it just kills me every. Single. Time.

I feel so much inexplicable maternal guilt when it comes to Bryanboy. It's as if I failed to hold him enough when he was an infant...

Talentless indeed, but to quote what someone wrote on youtube: "She's got some funk in the trunk."
