Bihira na ako makapag post dito pero
WHAT THE HELL??? WHAT THE HELL???!?!?!?
Sorry sa fans ng bands included but this is done in BAD TASTE. Napakarami pa ng Eraserheads songs bakit nila kinover pa yung mga nagawa na, at least mukhang interesting ng konti yung band lineup. Ang pangit pa ng layout mukhang ginawa ng Photoshop amateur.

Pareho na sila ng label ng
kaya pala may tweets si Ely plugging the shows of Bamboo (who's another MCA artist). also, that's Ely's sister Lally Buendia (aka Domino) beside him in the photo. maybe she has signed with MCA too.
i also read on Twitter a week back that Pupil guested for Raimund's show in MYX.

Ely Buendia answers your questions
October 26, 2011
By: Jessica Zafra Category: Music
We had a good time watching Quark Henares’s Rakenrol, an affectionate look at Pinoy indie music, but the scene that had us howling with laughter is the one where Jason Abalos is having his dark night of the soul in a convenience store at 2 am. Suddenly his favorite singer-songwriter Ely Buendia appears and guides him through his emotional turbulence.
It’s hilarious because it is clearly a fantasy sequence. Along the lines of Bruce Springsteen dispensing relationship wisdom to the protagonist in Stephen Frears’ High Fidelity. Or Pauline Kael and P.G. Wodehouse pouring me drinks while I’m inventing an article at 3 am. It’s not going to happen.
Although Ely, the band and I did run into Beck at a music store in L.A. in the 90s. He did not explain the meaning of life, though I could’ve used it at the time.
Ely’s answers are in boldface.
* * * * *
# 1 ariadne: May plano ba kayong tumugtog uli kasama ang inyong mga dating kabanda sa pangatlong pagkakataon? Kung oo, kelan? Kung hindi, bakit hindi?
Wala. Wala, at wala. Bakit? Kasi wala.
# 2 tita: song(s) you wish you had written?
The Jeopardy theme.
# 3 betson: Ano ang nakasagasa sa babaing nasa kantang “Huling El Bimbo” doon sa maliit na iskinita?
# 4 ariadne: Which song would you give as a piece of advice for people who cannot move on/forward from a previous/non-existent relationship?
I’m Set Free by the Velvet Underground. Or Get Free by the Vines. You get the picture.
# 5 jessicazafra: You don’t seem to age; in fact you look younger now than you did before the heart attack. Is there a supernatural explanation for this, and who in the underworld do we contact? (Kanino namin ibebenta ang aming kaluluwa?)
Please. You make looking young sound like a good thing.
# 6 wenkebach: A book or a story you recently enjoyed?
The Making of Star Wars and Empire Strikes Back by JW Rinzler. Engrossing and fascinating. These books taught me more about the filmmaking process than any film school.
# 7 sirius black: you used to have ‘cursor’ until it last saw print on 2006. any plans of getting reacquainted with the printed word?
I’ve recently started writing again. It’s harder than songwriting because you have to try and make sense. I have an essay on American Football coming out in Esquire Philippines soon.
# 8 mcshrewdy: which habit was most difficult for you to let go for the sake of your health?
Eating junk food.
# 9 dindin: mahirap bang mag-maintain ng damo sa bubong?
Basta maganda ang damo at lupa, madali lang.
# 10 ariadne: I remember reading one of your interviews (in a song magazine ages ago) where you said that you do not expect your fans to grow up with you. Unfortunately, legions of your fans are still there lurking and waiting for a chance to say “We are still here!” What would you tell those fans who have been there since the Eraserheads’ days?
Awww…isn’t that sweeeet? Seriously, makinig na lang kayo kay Lito Camo.
# 11 bangzkie88: Bakit kayo naghiwalay ng asawa mo? (chismosa lang)
dahil mahal namin ang isa’t-isa.
# 12 ea: Hollywood and Local celebrity crushes?
Eva Green. Marion Cotillard.
# 13 shadowplay: What kind of story (or stories) are you most fond of reading?
# 14 samantha: ano ang mga bagay na gusto mong matutunan ng mga anak mo?
Maglinis ng kwarto.
also, ano ang pinaka-ok para sa yo na reaction ng isang fan kung makita ka niya in public (na hindi official na gig or event)?
Fan: “Hi this is my CD of your newest album. Can you sign it?” Me:”Love to!”
# 15 turmukoy: may mga tumitira ba sa yo na sellout ka na masyado, patikwas-hairdo-hairdo model ka na lang? hindi ba nanay mo lang ang nagugupit sayo dati? tinanong ba nila kung magkano ang kinita mo sa raket na ito? (sana mas mahal ang bayad sa yo ni ben kaysa kila diether ocampo, para worth it naman, ika nga). brief model ka na ba sa susunod?
Relax ka lang, amigo. Hair gel lang yan. Wala ka bang trabaho? Na-breastfeed ka man lang ba ng nanay mo?
wag mo intindihin ang mga ulupong na ito. sa call center sila nagtatrabaho, o korporeyt-eklat na nagpapaalipin rin sa mga kapitalista. padayon lang. tyak yon. amen lang. sakyan.
this is sweet of you, jess. I didn’t know you had it in you hahaha
Wala akong kinalaman diyan, si turmukoy yan.
# 16 cdlaclos: Bakit si Coco Martin ang lumalabas pag nagta-type ako ng “ely buendia naked’ sa Google images?
Aba malay ko.
# 17 ruth: Who’s the fictional character you most identify with?
# 18 Cacs: May balak ka ba maglabas ng biography mo considering you’ve had close brushes with death? Advance birthday greetings!
I prefer a posthumous biography a la Samuel Clemens. Mahirap magsalita ng totoo dito sa Pinas masyadong sensitive ang mga tao.
# 19 ea: What profession or what do you think you’ll be doing then and now, if you didn’t end up in a band? And curious din ako sa relationship nyo ng ex-wife mo,hindi ba mas komplikado na hindi na kayo pero lagi parin kayo nandyan sa isa’t-isa? Ganon nga ba *** sitwasyon, tama?
Diane and I have a healthier relationship now than when we were younger and together. We will always be family. As long as you’ve buried the past and have mutual respect, I don’t see any problem with working together. Besides, she’s the best manager an artist could want.
# 20 tehanu: mahal kita.
Akala mo lang yun.
# 21 tehanu: pag nakasalubong/nakita ka namin sa mall (halimbawa sa greenbelt), ayos lang ba na istorbohin ka at magpalitrato kasama ka? o naiinis ka sa ganun?
See question no. 14
# 22 ariadne: What/ who was the inspiration for the song Spolarium? Was it really based on Pepsi Paloma?
I will take this secret to the grave.
# 23 cheezmiss: bago ko nakita etong post na eto — ilang araw ko nang naririnig ang mga kanta ng eheads pag nag-g-grocery ako. baket? may kinalaman ka ba dito?
May kinalaman ba ang abaniko sa bagyo?
# 24 the chronicler of boredom: Do you really have a large collection of Chuck Taylors? Ano bang meron sa mga sapatos na ito at gustong-gusto mo sila?
I don’t own chucks anymore.
# 25 cheezmiss: ang babae ba sa magasin ay si rosanna roces? naging prends nga ba kayo dati daw?
Hinde at hinde.
# 27 Momelia: Ano moisturizer mo?
# 28 scheherazade: My question: When you were told that you would need to undergo a major surgical procedure, what was going through your mind?
“Finally. A life or death moment.”
Kuwento lang: In the late ’90s, nakita ka namin ng friend ko na naglalakad malapit sa Sunken Garden. Pasimple kong sinabi sa friend ko na ikaw yata yun at gusto ko sanang lumapit para magpa-autograph at lumandi. Ngunit pinigilan niya ako at sinabing hindi raw ikaw yun.
Later that same day, nakita namin yung kaklase ko na kakilala mo. Tapos sinabi niya na nandun ka nga raw sa Sunken Garden. At dahil dyan, pinatay ko ang aking kaibigan. Sa isip lang pero parang gusto ko talagang totohanin that time.
# 29 isablahblah: i’ve always wanted to ask the following:
1. have you seen David Lynch’s Eraserhead? did you like it?
Yes I have, numerous times. I don’t think you’re supposed to “like” it.
2. what was that thingamajig you used in your music video 20/20?
The camera? That’s a piece by artist Gabriel Barredo.
3. why did you name your son Eon?
Because it starts with an E, is easy to say, and lasts a long time.
4. what local film have you watched recently (and liked/loved)?
napansin ko lang dun sa bagong palabas na Together Forever sa GMA: Elmo Magalona played as Ely dun sa show, na naging sound man ng isang banda. Tapos meron pa dung Toyang e, hindi ko na lang na-recognize kung sino yun dun.
Napakinggan niyo ba yung isang song ng Eraserheads na kinanta ni Ely with the Philharmonic Orchestra? Nakalimutan ko na yung song. Huling El Bimbo yata. Nakakataas balahibo talaga.
parang nakita ko sa MYX meron daw Eheads Tribute na gagawin sa Trinoma sa July 27
^fake obviously.. check mo yung mga logos ng mga sponsors.. plus bakit ilalagay pa yung mga surnames ng eheads?
