Of flu shots and Hayden-gate

I’m going over today’s headlines before I call it a day. It’s still two hours before I can officially clock out but I haven’t been feeling good since yesterday. Come to think of it, this flu-like thing has plagued me for over a month now. It comes out of nowhere and leaves as soon as I take bio-flu or Elvie-advised antibiotic. It can’t be the dreaded swine-flu otherwise that would find me bed-ridden in a hospital. And it only lasts for a day, at most. In every “attack”, my whole body usually feels like a punched-out bag. As if  Manny Pacquiao had a go at it. I get chills, too. But like I said, it doesn’t linger long enough to earn a trip to the doctor. What gives? It has started to worry Santi (who worries about everything) which spurred me to inquire about flu-shots that immune us from simple strains of flu. I am scheduled to be vaccinated next week. I should be “flu-free” after that. If not, a trip to Medical City is a foregone conclusion.

Back to the headlines. Hayden Kho and Katrina Halili face-off at the Senate. Much has been said about the whole brouhaha over the ex-couple’s sex video and all I can say is that it’s time this country fortify laws prohibiting the proliferation of pornographic videos, whether they involve celebrities or the common tao.  Pornography, like drugs, breeds inhuman behavior. I believe Hayden Kho was a porn addict. That was his disease. But because there are no laws explicitly prohibiting him from videotaping his sex-capades without the consent of his partner, he felt free to document his sexual prowess and that of his women. I find it funny that he now submits himself as a victim of the mess that he, himself,  created.

As a defense,  he likened his taking of the videos to a diary, saying that it was his way of documenting his private life. Except he forgot that in his videos, he had a leading lady, who was ooohing and aaahing every millisecond. Poor analogy. The blogger in me takes offense. Words are one thing, videos another. He might have desired his “performance” video-taped for posterity but that didn’t mean the ladies in the videos shared the same sentiments.

In any case, Hayden-gate has eclipsed more news-worthy happenings like Brillante Mendoza’s Best Director win in Cannes. Now that is something to talk about. I have yet to watch Kinatay, the movie that he won the Best Director award for, but I am very proud of my kababayan’s amazing run against the likes of Ang Lee and Quentin Tarantino. It just goes to show that Filipinos are good in real film-directing , not just the salacious type helmed by doctor-turned-director Hayden Kho.

I should be going now. Friday night traffic is the worst. And I have a telenovela to catch. Ta-ta!

  3. MAMA I SWEAR TOMBOY SI HAYDEN HAkHAKHAK! seriously speaking though, I want a law that proscribes videotaping another in a sexual act without his/her permission. Must be that specific. Bloggers like us have libel laws to abide by. Video “diaries” (if that even makes sense) in the same manner should have similar laws applicable to them.

    At any rate, HK is a t-bird. damn it. Sayang weapon nya woohoo
