Social media, for good or ill

Supertyphoon “Yolanda” showed the best and the worst of social media. In the immediate aftermath, at least, there was none of the irreverent humor that Filipinos are known for, we who make fun of anything and anyone, even and especially our own misfortune. The enormity of the tragedy was such that not even the worst kibitzers on social media had the guts to post any wisecrack.

How Joaquin Valdes and I became a true tandem in ‘Red’

By
ACTOR’S Actors Inc.’s production of John Logan’s “Red” will have a rerun on
Aug. 23-24, 7:30 p.m. at Teatrino, Greenhills, for the benefit of the UP School of
Economics Alumni Association and the UPSE Class of ’88. Bart Guingona directs and top bills the play, along with Joaquin Valdes.

I had never really known Joaquin Pedro Valdes personally until I had him read for the part of Ken in John Logan’s “Red.” He was the last in a line of would-be Kens, each of whom was lacking in some way. Sure, I had seen him as a child actor in Trumpets’ “The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe,” but I had never really said anything to him before beyond a postperformance “Congrats!”

Not ready to part with Red

Take a bow, Reto Klauser, GM of Makati Shangri-La. Red has become a brand name for excellence in food and ambience. What is it about Red that makes us feel private and cocooned with our own company of friends even while there’s a busy, busy buzz of strangers all about as all tables are taken? Could be the red (very) high-backed chairs that keep full exposure (and disclosure) at length. Could be the flattering (to the less endowed) well-lighted dimness that lets us people-watch without being watched back.
