Billy Boy Invades Trash Radio Manila

This morning, I received a letter from a “dawg” dog; I haven’t talked to him for a few days as he is down with one of his urticaria attacks secondary to fleas (and he had his hair cut because of this.) Below is his message detailing his preoccupation while not out in the street scaring off unsuspecting bystanders with his Rottweiler-like demeanor and growl.

Hey Trashradiomanila,

I got this email the other day and simply because I do not know what to do with it, I decided to forward it to you. It came from a dog. No, no, no. Not a “dawg” dog, but a real dog. Totoong aso. Seryoso. Aso. Lhasa Apso. (Yeah, for a minute there I was tempted to type “Lhasa ASO”, but that would have been too predictable.)

May pangalan pa siya. Billy Boy daw, at mahilig siya sa balut. (If only to prove his point, Billy Boy sent one of his videos. Seryoso. Panalo.)

Nothwithsatanding his balut-eating prowess, he also said he has a band, and he was wondering if I can A&R for him. Yeah, it’s weird, pero kasama nung video yung isang demo niya. Puppet!Puppet! daw ang pangalan ng banda at ang paliwanag niya, medyo mala-Stereolab trip out daw ang gruba. Totoo naman nang marinig ko. Mala-Stereolab nga. G’leng! May subtle hints din ng Savage Garden. (SERYOSO! Baduy man isipin, mala-“Truly Madly Deeply” [Yun ba title? Di ko sigurado eh] yung ibang parts ng chorus kung talagang pakikinggan mo.)

OKS si Billy Boy! Asong mahilig sa balut tapos may banda na mala-Stereolab ang tunog.

Sana parinig ninyo sa iba. May upcoming EP daw si Billy Boy. “Maraming Hudas” ang pamagat.

Music lover talaga siya. Eto, mga quote galing kay Billy Boy. (Di ko na ipe-paste yung ibang laman ng sulat niya ha. Medyo private eh.)

SUPER-SARAP NA SABUNAN!

Big Boi's recommended sounds for relaxing go-li:

1. Lightning Bolt -- "Captain Caveman"
2. Belle and Sebastian -- "We are the Sleepyheads"
3. Jim O' Rourke -- 'Ghostship in a Storm"
4. The Lambrettas -- "Daaaance"
5. Gary Valenciano -- "Growing Up"

RUNNER-UP (para sa pulbuhan):

Rare Silk -- "New York Afternoon"
Michael Franks -- "On My Way Home to You" (supersuwabe ang boses at bigote)

Kanya yung huling parenthetics ha, hindi sa akin. Marunong din siya tumula…

Ang Makulay na Mundo ng Puppet! Puppet!

Mas masaya ang buhay
Kung may konting tinapay
At shoktong na tagay

Kapag ang mundo ay maganda
Hindi na halata ang garapata

Love,
Boiboi

Siya. Kayo na bahala kay wonder dog.


‘Till the next ambush,

XXXXX

Errr, what do you think? I for one am a sucker for real dogs. It's not everyday that I get to see a dog that eats balut like it is an art form or something. Oks din ang music. So why don't you guys check out Billy Boy and his exploits here. Tell me what you think.
