Posted by kilospup in Features.

It’s time to rock the music world, mga Isko at Iska!
Two PUPians won the top plums on the recently concluded 1st SOP Music Video awards, and added yet another reason to be proud of our university. It’s a welcome addition.

Our fellow PUPian Richard Librada and Darlene Abigail Quito garnered the top honors, together with Roman Perez of University of the Philippines at the prestigious music video award ceremony broadcasted live last 25th of November, Sunday at the UP Theatre in Diliman, Quezon City.

Quito received the Best Video Editing and Texter’s Choice

Darlene Abigail Quito received the Best Video Editing and Texter’s Choice awards for her work on the Yasmien Kurdi music video of “Candlelight Romance”. While Roman Perez, also a student from the University of the Philippines bagged the Best Production Design award for the music video of Aicelle Santos’ “Ikaw Pa Rin”.

Wait, there’s more. Eighteen-years old Richard Librada and his team behind the “All Out of Love” music video, rendered by actor-singer Dennis Trillo got away with the most awards. Sophomore Librado, and his team from the College of Communication at the Polytechnic University of the Philippines went home with Best Videography, Best Concept/Story, Best Music Video, and Best Director. Dennis Trillo, the star of the video, earned the Special Citation for Best Performance by An Artist for his thespian prowess in “All Out of Love”.


Librada’ s Concept Won Him Top Plum

All in all, team PUP brought home a total of eight award. Other finalist were. Elaine Melody Samonte (St. Paul College, QC), Ademar Garchitorena (University of San Jose Recoletos, Cebu), Maan Leynes (Centro Escolar University), and Nestor Abrogena (UP Diliman).

To Mr. Roger,

What a very Communist name in there, Mr. Roger. And you do sound like one, I suppose although less scary than Punongbathala ( a name which goes to show what a megalomaniac your pals could be ). Despite your bossy attitude, Mr. Roger, I thank you for visiting our web blog. What we aim here is to promote things that every PUPian can be proud of, things that would contribute to their sense of identity.

As much as we could, we had attempted not to politicized this website, but we do not deny that our humble beginning takes us back to campus politics, and we owe so much to Kilos Party. Mr. Roger, we are not ‘nakikisawsaw’ to the fame of our alumni. What we are attempting to do here is to serve as fora for the students to get to know why one should be proud of being a student in PUP; our web is very much like The Catalyst which regularly features PUPian triumph in and outside the university.

Each sector of our academic community contributes to the well-being of every student. No matter how little, it must be recognized. If at times some of the sectors, or some of the members of these sectors fail to measure up to what is expected of them, they are after all, but human with inherent imperfections, and bound to make mistakes.

Mr. Roger, it seems you have a thirst for politics, but your thirst will not be quenched here. Perhaps, if you be so industrious, you could direct your political libido to Kilos Party’s official web blog. Thank you, and one last advice, don’t drink too much, or just don’t drink at all, when you comment next time.

Mr. Alvin

I suppose you’re not the epitome of good manners and proper conduct, offering to ‘fuck’ everyone up. How promiscuous of you, but that is an offer we would gladly decline. Forgive the mistake, my fault. We have a separate staff from Kilos Party, in fact, I do not even know who moderates their official site. Please do you’re research first (well, talk about ignorance, then) because often, you guys, bark here without realizing you’re barking at the wrong tree–er, blog which could be, as it is now, infuriatingly annoying. Happy new year!

my point is sa susunod magbigay kau ng tamang information…


no time for pity, at hindi pride ang issue dito no, i’m proud to be a pupian because i do believe and putting into practice the vission, mission and philosophy of our school, subukan niyong basahin baka ikahiya niyo na ganyan kaung klase ng PUPian, baka magtransfer na lang kayo sa ibang school because dapat almin niyo kung ano ang tunay na nagpapabuhay at nagpapanatili sa ating pamantasan… di ba…

sana ma-realize niyo yun… sana…

9. roger - January 10, 2008

politics ba… oo nga grabe yun pala ang tingin nio sa comment ko grabe and i’m not a communist, i’m a servant, by the way san nga bang banda kayo nakapag-serve sa PUP, Mr. lawrence Villar at excuse me hindi ako lasing, we’re not doing that thing because we are remolding into a better member of this society and we do not do that vices, you have to research all about us, and you will be amazed what really we are doing…

tingnan mo rin yung mga sinasabi mong sector, sana nga kahit maliit ay may nagagawa sila… research mo kung magkano ang winawaldas ng mga sinasabi mong sector mula sa kaban ng mga mahihirap na PUPian and maaawa ka sa sarili mo at sa kapwa mo estudyante, sana malaman mo…

10. alvin - January 10, 2008

paki-tama yung video, mali pa rin o… kay yasmin kurdi po yung video nila at hindi kay aicelle santos… ano ba yan… yan ba ang mga nag-reresearch ng tama about sa mga topic nila… di ba ….

11. villamar - January 12, 2008

Hi Mr. Alvin.

Before you get the wrong impression, I am not trying to enter into a full-blown word war here. Each of us, Mr. Alvin, has a way to contribute to uplifting the image of PUP. This is our way. You have yours. At same level, we also have a very different perspective and opinion on what shames PUP. The character Santiago, in the Alchemist states that each of us has the duty to turn into ‘gold’. Like lead, when we have outlive our purpose, we must turn into something else, something better. This is not a mere expression of discontent with the status quo you seem to eager to preserve but a call to be better, even so, I recognize that such superlative is a relative one. I reinterate that each has his or her individual, unique, oftentimes different way. But instead of issuing your contentions here, why not delve on the similarities of our advocacies. I believe such similarities are numerous, for us to share between ourselves. I mean no disrespect nor do I intend to shoo you a way, but it must be stated that this is our site, not yours. We have our own philosophies, and rationale, reasons that you personally make harder to understand by seeing things in black and white, which is not always so as there are shades of gray in between.

Do recognize, Mr. Alvin that our web blog relies on volunteers. Most of them students like me. We do not profit nor are we given any incentives in maintaining this site. True, it gives us access to some ‘fame’ as you put it, but that is not the be-all and end-all of our volunteership. I admit that there is joy in seeing your name in the editorial board, but that is to be expected. For the record, my tenure here has not landed me any job, or interview or magazine cover, not even a screaming freshman stalking me in the campus ( I wish there was, for a matter of experience). Forgive my sarcasm, but it could not be help. I’m gifted with it, and I use it for entertainment rather than good offense. Anyway, happy reading and watch out for our future article.

14. kilospup - January 18, 2008

hi Mr. Alvin.

Seems like your professed wit betrays you. Nope, i’m not saying you’re not in PUP. Please dissect my sentences and the intended message will come to light. or better yet, why not hire an English translator or used Babel Fish Translator so you could better understand it, although I expect that it’s not the language that hinders understanding on your part but a lot of critical thinking, or shall I say, intelligence?



You know what,s top ‘talking’ because you’re making a spectacle of yourself. Nakakahiya na po na na-iinfer ng mga mababasa na sadyang wala kayong karunungan upang ganap na maunawaan ang mga artikulong naisapubliko rito dahil lamanag ito’y nakakasulat sa Ingles. Isang patunay na ang pera ng taong bayan ay nasasayng lamang sa pagkat ang adhikain ng pamantasang matuto kayo ay hindi lubusang naisasakatuparan sa kadahilanang walang pagpupursigi mula sa inyong sarili,para sa inyong sarili. Oh there you go, I already wrote in Tagalog so you could understand it.

15. jonnel - January 24, 2008

malamang at taga pup ka lng… but maybe your hiding under someone’s pants while criticizing the party you are afraid of.. BAKIT BA TUWING MALAPIT NA ANG ELEKSYON AY LUMILITAW KAYO PARA SIRAAN ANG BLOG NMIN?…SINO KAYA ANG MGA TUNAY NA KABUTE

16. Dancel - March 2, 2008
