----------------------------------

Surprise! Hale aren't Best New Artist of 2005, and do you know why? Because they're NOT! HOORAY!

I'm not even going to complain that O&L are Artist of the Year, because I will grudgingly admit that they've made quite an impact on the industry, having suddenly made acceptable bad haircuts and faux-English accents. Okay, I know when I've been defeated. You win this round, O&L, but the battle is far from over.

Now, to answer some fan mail:

Aki asked:
Juz wanna ask why are you so mad to Orange and Lemons?...


Dear Aki
I am so mad to Orange and Lemons, because they are suck. Okay, that's not right! Orange and Lemons are not suck, but they are, how do you say, annoying. With their haircuts and their accents which are not real. They are annoy to me.

I hope that clears things up...

Andrea asked:
I'm just curious and I hope you don't mind me asking this.

Who would you choose among the three, Hale, Cueshe, and O&L? I know you don't like them. But sino sa kanila yung mejo matitiis mo pa?

Hehe.


Dear Andrea,

Oh, good question! This reminds me of the old game we used to play in the Pulp offices. "Who would you..." (e.g.,"Who would you watch if you could only watch one, Smashing Pumpkins or Pixies?" "Who would you date, Jerome Abalos or Joey 'Pepe' Smith?" etc.)

Actually, even with all my nasty comments about O&L, they're the ones I could listen to. Cueshe are boring, and Hale just aren't great musicians. Which only proves that, hey, looks aren't everything to me. O&L are pretty homely, and I picked them. See? I'm deep.

NOTE: I've updated the winners list several times, as no official list of the winners can be found anywhere online. My apologies for the initial mistakes, and I would appreciate it if anyone can point out any additional ones. Thanks!

how come m-16 won when jr kilat have other songs that are far better?

I just made an idiot of myself by laughing silly in front of the computer. Hahaha... fan mail pala ehhh.

Luis K. said...

Now that the results are in, am more confused than ever about what the "Best Male" award actually signifies.

And x-p: I can totally believe that Jr. Kilat must have far better songs than "Ako si M-16," because "Ako si M-16" irritates the hell out of me.

R. O. said...

Hello, Kristine and Luis,

Hu da hek are the judges in this contest? Why Orange and Melons? I'm not really a Hale fan but I think when you talk about popularity and impact, Hale should win at least one award.

And, yes, what's this best male, best female thing? Best male species award?

Irritating.

may chandeliers fall on opb bands.

Jay said...

Producer(s) of the Year were Cynthia Alexander and Angee Rozul for Cynthia Alexander's album Comet's Tail...

R. O. said...

I take back what I said about Hale because the voice has been electronically enhanced. But I resent Orange and Melons' faux Brit accent. :(
