Google, binigyan ng tribute si Mang Dolphy

Ruel Mendoza (Pilipino Star Ngayon) - July 26, 2020 - 12:00am

Nakakatuwa naman ang ginawang tribute ng multinational tech company na Google sa pumanaw na Comedy King na si Dolphy.

Kaarawan kasi ng the late comedy king noong July 25 at kung nabubuhay pa ito, he would have been 92 years old.

Maraming netizens ang nagulat nang bumungad sa Google ang isang cartoon doodle ni Mang Dolphy, kaya marami ang muling nakaalala sa kanyang mga lumang pelikula at TV shows, partikular na ang John En Marsha at Home Along Da Riles.

Pumanaw si Mang Dolphy noong July 19, 2012 sa edad na 83. At hanggang ngayon ay wala pang puwedeng mag-claim sa kanyang titulo bilang nag-iisang Comedy King ng Philippine Entertainment.

Tumagal ng higit na 60 years ang showbiz career ni Mang Dolphy at nagawa niya ang lahat mula sa entablado, radyo, telebisyon at pelikula.

“Google Philippines is proud to showcase one of our country’s iconic entertainment personalities to the world. Through this Google Doodle, we recognize and pay tribute to Dolphy’s remarkable talent and passion, which have made a significant impact in the local entertainment industry, bringing laughter to generations of Filipinos. We hope that today, everyone is reminded of Dolphy’s legacy and how he taught everyone to find joy in everyday life,” ayon kay Mervin Wenke, head of communications and public affairs at Google Philippines.

Maraming comedians ang naging inspirasyon si Mang Dolphy, tulad nina Vic Sotto, Michael V. at pati na sina Ai-Ai delas Alas at Eugene Domingo.

Kaya sa mga nakaka-miss sa mga patawa ni Mang Dolphy, gamitin lang ang ang hashtag na #GoogleDoodleForDolphy sa inyong mga throwback post sa social media.

Ces certified farmer na

Tulad ng ibang empleyado ng ABS-CBN 2 na natanggal na sa kanilang trabaho, may iba nang pinagkakaabalahan ang veteran broadcast journa­list na si Ces Drilon.

Sa mga hindi nakakaalam ay mahilig pala sa farming si Ces at nag-post siya sa Instagram kamakailan ng kanyang Vagabond Farm sa Batangas.

Ito pala ang ibang buhay ni Ces kapag hindi ito nakaharap sa kamera. Ngayon at wala na siyang ibang pinagkakaabalahan, nag-move forward na si Ces at tututukan na niya ang farm life. “Farmer Ces at @vagabondfarms. Am really excited to devote more time to farming. Photo 1 is me amongst our malunggay trees. We are transferring them to the perimeter fence to plant dayap and avocado. Photo 2 is the tree house behind me. The @shopstylecat head wrap perfect for a day at the farm! 3 is one of the farm’s tree lined paths. 4 is the pile of cow manure to start a worm farm! Watch out for @vagabondfarms ‘ potting mix! 5 is our perimeter fence which will be lined with more kakawate and malunggay trees. 6 is our kamagong tree, now about 3 years old. 7 is my walk with @makilingmiracle just a stone’s throw away from the farm, with a majestic view of Laguna de Bay. The @vionicshoesph perfect for the late afternoon hike surrounded by nature’s splendor. Farming was the plan until ABSCBN plucked me out of ‘retirement’ from field reporting. Now it’s time to give it more focus as life has once again led me to a new journey. But I will always be #foreverkapamilya,” caption pa ni Ces sa kanyang IG post.

Nagsimula si Ces sa ABS-CBN noong 1989. Bago nagsara ang network, head si Ces ng ABS-CBN’s lifestyle ecosystem and executive editor ng lifestyle block and publication, ANC-X.

“This was one of the toughest days I had to face. Telling fellow Kapamilyas that they would lose their jobs by end of August. I lost mine too. We are ­doing all we can to mitigate the pain that will be felt by those affected, including paying out separation and retirement benefits and providing job placement programs.  The loss of their jobs comes at a time when the uncertain and perilous impact of the COVID-19 pandemic further makes our decision truly diffi­cult, but inevitable,” post ni Ces noong nakaraang linggo.

Bukod sa farming, may ibang business pa si Ces kung saan nagbebenta ito ng eyewear and accessories.

Folklore ni Taylor, tinawag na greatest work

Natapos ni Taylor Swift ang kanyang 8th studio album habang naka-quarantine ito. Nilabas niya ang kanyang Folklore album noong July 24 at umani agad ito ng rave reviews.

Tinawag ng maraming music critics ang Folklore as Taylor’s “greatest work.”

Ayon sa The Guardian: “Her emotional acuity has never been more assured.”

Sey naman ng Variety: “It’s hard to remember any contemporary pop superstar that has indulged in a more serious, or successful, act of sonic palate cleansing.”

At sey naman ng Billboard: “A project created in isolation, Folklore finds Swift pouring every inch of her current psyche, amidst an imperfect reality, into her songwriting. We’re fortunate that she decided to share it with us.”

Heto ang pinost ni Taylor sa IG noong ilabas na ang Folklore: “In isolation my imagination has run wild and this album is the result. I’ve told these stories to the best of my ability with all the love, wonder, and whimsy they deserve. Now it’s up to you to pass them down. folklore is out now: https://taylor.lnk.to/folklore

May 16 tracks ang Folklore at ang unang music video na nilabas ay may titulong Cardigan na mayroon nang 15M views sa YouTube when it premiered last July 23.

“Before this year I probably would’ve overthought when to release this music at the ‘perfect’ time, but the times we’re living in keep reminding me that nothing is gua­ranteed. My gut is telling me that if you make something you love, you should just put it out into the world. That’s the side of uncertainty I can get on board with,” sey pa ni Taylor.

Ang iba pang singles ay The 1, Epiphany, Exile, The Last Great American Dynasty, Invisible String, at iba pa.
