Talk Shit Street

Shit happens. In our street, mainly.

Well, I’ve been living in the same street for the past 19 years and I’ve seen it develop – from a muddy rough road to a mossy concrete road. And beside from the abundance of frog carcass run over by vehicles, the pavement of our street is also in abundance of… wait for it… animal droppings (I find this word silly).

Well, this whole shit about animal shit hanging out freely on our street is crazy. It’s been decades-worth of shitload of negligence and no action is being done.

We have taken care of several dogs over the years but we make sure to make them put their shit on its proper place. But it is something people around our place can’t seem to do.

Lately, it’s cat poop that’s been bothering our street. I just find cat shit more disgusting than that of dogs’. But nothing’s more devastating than seeing a dump run over by a vehicle. Disgusting lvl: squished poop.

Don’t get me started with stepping on one.

And one more totally disgusting thing is how some poop are so big that you’ll wonder how in the world dogs download something that colossal. Please people, animal negligence… now poop negligence.

Oh, and since we’re like in an island surrounded by a sea of rice fields, cow poop.

 People living in our street, please be responsible with your animals’ shit. See what happens when I see shit on the street? I write about it.

#128: Solenn Heussaff on FHM March 2011

It is March and we know what this means, it’s FHM’s anniversary. They are turning 11 this year, like a kid experiencing puberty had the magazine been a real person. We all remember that phase in our lives- awkward voice, things popping out of our skins, hair growing here and there, and some skin and blood being moved out of our systems and all that jazz. But FHM is not like us humans. And this 11th year marker of this magazine is anything but awkward.

What do we have here? Oh, it’s a lucky horse kissing this month’s cover muse, the multi-hyphenated (READ designer, make-up artist, model, singer, Survivor finalist, painter, product endorser, movie star, soon-to-be TV star, It Girl….) Solenn Heussaff. The timing for her much anticipated FHM appearance couldn’t have been more perfect. After her stint in Survivor Philippines, she has captured the hearts of the Filipino masses despite the ‘socialite’ tag given to her by the said reality show. The public asked craved for more of Solenn. Although she has been a hot item for the longest time now, it is the mass appreciation brought about by Survivor Philippines that made her the next big thing on the local tinsel town.

COVER

I think this is the second time that the magazine used translucent color for their logo. (the first one was for Ehra Madrigal’s ‘white’ cover for June 2008)

That’s my only observation (MML). You be the judge.

LAYOUT

There are minor changes (or is there only one?) on the layout. Thankfully it’s the table of contents that they changed. It is less confusing now. (Wait, who reads the table of contents anyway?)

COVER STORY

Lucky horses. Lucky, lucky horses. Solenn, being the refined lady that she is, smoldered on the pages of FHM. Her shoot made up for the (somehow) lack of spark of last year’s anniversary issue cover shoots. Kudos to the photographer, the stylist and the make-up artist for the classy photos we are enjoying. Kudos to the FHM team for yet another classy photoshoot. Solenn was indeed polished to perfection for this one.

I can’t help but smile while reading Solenn’s interview. I can imagine her speaking whenever she was quoted in Filipino. She talked about her career plan, her Survivor experience, her passions, her life before the stardom and she managed to clarify some misconceptions about her and her lifestyle.

She truly heated up the 11th year of FHM with her cowgirl/equestrienne themed photos. She managed to show enough to ignite our thoughts while keeping some to tickle our imaginations. Plus her tattoos are hot.

Check out some of the behind the scenes photos of her pictorial:

PS. I have a strong feeling that Ms. Heussaff has a BIG chance of topping this year’s sexiest list. LET’S DO IT!

*I love the transition from Solenn’s warm hued photos to Paloma’s photos in cooler hues. It’s rad.

FEATURED BABES

It is March and we know what this means, it’s summer time. Aptly so, FHM did their Bikini Special this month (they did last year’s on their May issue). I liked this year’s Bikini Special because they featured girls with tanner complexions (some of them are Filipinas). Last year, the bikini special featured more white chicks  (although I have nothing against them, it’s just that bikinis look better on tanned skin).

I also commend FHM for doing the photo shoots around the Philippines. They shot FHM favorite Paloma and car show model Shanna Solideo on the shores of Baler in Aurora Province. The shores of Subic, Zambales became witness to Australian-Pinay Richelle Prickett’s and Brazilian Model Ana Corado’s bikini-clad bodies. Jenny posed along the shores of her hometown Davao and Cebu’s  Aireen Estel, in her bikini, posed in one of the Queen City of the South’s A-list resorts (Maribago Blue Water Beach Resort). Not to forget Australia’s bet, Half Filipina Shiralee Coleman.

Other girls featured were Incoming babe, Lae Lusung and March GF Janna Tiangco (it’s kinda disappointing that they reduced the GF’s photos to two, again.)

PLUS Sam Pinto’s San Mig Light ad is there again. 🙂

FEATURED READS

Among the featured articles this month are 60 driving tips, Extreme Sportsmen, Vanity for Men, Dog Breeds and the Death of ‘Pinoy Rock ‘n Roll.

I liked the article about the dogs because it gave everything an aspiring dog owner needs to know. From the behavior, health, intelligence, price and the impact it will give the ladies.

The article on the ‘Death’ of ‘Pinoy rock ‘n roll caught my interest even though I am not a big fan of the genre. It managed to tell how everything started, from underground to mainstream, the impact of NU’s downfall, the signing of indie bands for major record labels and how the genre is slowly losing pace with pop music, which is more appreciated by the majority.

EXTRAS

*or my queries*

  • So Pauline So is the ‘real’ Premiere Vixen. Whatever happened to Christine and Karen?
  • What is the font name of the ones used for the Bikini portion?
  • How about the one used for Solenn?
  • Why is this issue worth every peso spent?
  • Will I ever get answers to my questions?
