Biyaheng Peyups

A couple of weeks ago, I chanced upon an old microsite over at Peyups.com featuring the Philippine Collegians's 'Dekada 90' special. It was a special issue of the publication which profiled several top alumni of the university who made their mark during the decade, as well as issues that the university faced during the period.

The choices were fascinatingly eclectic and the features, with the benefit of hindsight, quite prescient. The usual suspects were there that one would would associate with Peyups, including Benjie Paras, Raymond Red, Jessica Zafra, the Eraserheads, and Gary Granada were there. Most of the features were also spot-on; for example, it was really cool how an article (accurately) pointed out that the 'white shirt-faded jeans-tsinelas' fashion that Yano frontman Dong Abay wore became the burning image of the typical Iskolar ng Bayan for most non-UP people. The issue also lucked out as some of the people featured, such as then-Representatives Manuel Villar and Mike Defensor and former Governor Nur Misuari have all achieved more prominent status in Philippine politics. Also, it's cool to read all the fawning words about Malou Mangahas, who is my boss over at GMANews.TV.

It made you realize how awesome the 90s were. Ma-re-realize mo rin kung gaano ka-astig maging Iskolar ng Bayan.

Seeing that it's only a couple of years before the end of this decade, I find myself wishing that the Kule would do something similar then. Here are some of my ideas for profiles and issues/events:

- Winnie Monsod
- Loren Legarda
- Chiz Escudero
- Antonio Trillanes IV
- Auraeus Solito
- Jeffrey Jeturian
- Paolo Manalo
- Raymond Palatino

- Edsa Dos
- Tuition fee increase
- Ayala land deal
- UP Centennial

How about you guys, you have anything to add?

umm, eheads?


eheads broke up in 2002. so they didn't really make much of a mark on this decade.


parokya? sugarfree? syempre puro banda. . .

naalala ko na lang na issue was yung case ni nino calinao. . . whatever happened to that?


inisip ko rin yung mga banda na yun eh. kaya lang parokya is more identified with ateneo diba? tapos neither of them had the same impact naman as the eraserheads.

nino calinao died in 1999. kasama pa siya dun sa isang feature sa mga issues, sa frat violence.



Oh, and found this update on Nino's case:



Atom Araullo
Bruce Quebral :p
Malay mo yung 2007 UP Maroons


i kept a copy of that issue somewhere at home. sana buo pa yung dyaryo na yun. :D


please stop glorifying trillanes. i'm anti-administration but the means that he carried out his protests is categorically wrong. terrorism is never an acceptable form of protest.


So true :-(
