SENAKULO

14 comments

Hindi na mabilang ang senakulong aking napanood magmula pa noong bata pa ako. Naalala ko pa nga madalas kailangan pa namin sumampa sa ibabaw ng tricycle para lang makapanood dahil sa sobrang dami ng taong nag-aabang hindi kay Jesus Christ o kay Hudas--kung hindi kay Matt Ranillo III at kung sino-sinu pang artista. Espesyal ang pagtatanghal sa Sta Ana noon, dahil dito rin lumaki si Cesar Montano at tuwing senakulo ay nag-iimbita siya ng mga artista para gumanap dito. Noon pa man, hindi na talaga ako mahilig sa artista dahil madalas ko naman silang nakikita sa tuwing nag-shooting sila sa Sta, Ana at tuwing naglalaro sila ng basketball doon sa court. Hindi ito nagbago kahit naging teenager na ako, at kahit palagi sila nandoon sa bahay ng barkada ko para mag-shooting, ay dedma lang kami. Wala naman masyadong iba sa kanila, maliban sa mukha silang maniking naglalakad at nagyoyosi tuwing wala sa harap ng camera.


Ang dahilan kung bakit ko isinusugal ang buhay ko sa tuwing aakyat kami ng basketball ring at ng matataas na bakod para makapanood ng senakulo ay ang eksena kung saan ipapako na si Kristo. Bilang isang bata, gusto ko malaman kung totoo bang ipapako siya sa Krus (exciting) o itatali lang ba iyong kamay niya (boring).

Noon, Ito lang ang ibig sabihin sa akin ng SENAKULO, hanggang dumating ang 2006.

Grade 4 pa lang ako ay aktibo na ako sa simbahan. Isa akong lector noon, (ayon ba tawag doon?). Basta, kami iyong mga batang nasa simbahan na dalawang oras pa bago pa man magsimula ang misa, kami iyong nagbabasa ng mga salita mula sa isang librong parang Encyclopedia, pero ang pinakaiba nito ay halos wala kang makitang picture (kaya pala kami pinagbabasa ni Father), Bibliya yata tawag doon. Nahinto lamang iyon ng ako ay mag high-school at nagsimulang ma-inlab. (Joke). Gaya ng dahilan ng maraming nalalayo sa simbahan at sa Diyos, naging busy ako noon sa aking buhay. Lumipas ang ilang taon, at matapos kung magbalik mula Amerika, ako ay officially naging "Kuya" ng mga ka-batch ko sa eskwela. Naalala ko nalalapit na noon ang aking muling pagtatapos sa sekondarya ng maitanong ko sa isang kaklase kung ano ang plano niya sa bakasyon.

Sagot niya: "Senakulo, Kuya Marlon..sasali ako sa senakulo, halos lahat kami sasali, ikaw ba gusto mo?".

Sagot ko: Nyek? ano naman gagawin ko doon? Goodluck na lang sa inyo. Wahahahaha!
(Ganun talaga ako mag-react, may tawa talaga sa huli)

Noong kinahapunan din na iyon, nakatakda na akong makipagkita sa aking mga barkada kung saan hindi ako tinatawag na kuya (YES!) Dumating si Jayson at nagsabing, galing daw si Jet sa kanila at nagpasabing sumunod na lang daw kami sa simbahan dahil noong gabing iyon pala ang unang meeting para sa pagpaplano ng Senakulo. Lingid sa aking kaalaman, ang aking buong barkada pala ay nag-serve din sa Senakulo noong huling taon nila sa High-School. (nasa amerika ako noon kaya hindi ko alam) Hindi man lang inabot ng imahinasyon ko na kasali ang mga mokong kong kaibigan sa Senakulo dahil wala ni isa sa aming anim ang tipo na aarte sa entablado. (Masyado kaming gwapo para doon.) Umikot ang tingin ko sa kanila sabay tanong ng...

"SUMALI KAYO SA SENAKULO? WAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAA"

"LOKO, HINDI KAMI UMARTE! KAMI GUMAWA NG PROPS AT NAG-PAINT NG BACKDROP" galit nilang tugon sa akin.

Ah... Ito na lang ang nasabi matapos kong makita ang nanlilisik nilang mga mata. Biglang naisip ko na sabagay, kilala naman talaga ang grupo namin bilang mga "artists". Ilang stage na rin ang napintahan at na-set up "namin", at halos lahat ng bulletin board sa eskwela ay "kami" ang nagdisenyo. Naalala ko biglang sila pala ang hari ng mga poster making contest noon. (Aktwali, hindi ako kasali sa mga gumagawa dahil wala akong talento sa pagdedesign at pagkukulay, ako lang iyong humaharap sa mga teacher at nag-aayos ng aming pagka-excuse mula sa klase. Ako rin iyong magaling mamintas ng gawa nila. Mas madaming pagpipintas mula sa akin, ibig sabihin mas maganda iyong pagkakagawa.)

Wala na akong nagawa noon kung hindi sumama na rin sa simbahan para sa meeting na iyon. Isang bagay na agad kung ikinatuwa pagdating doon ay ang pagtawag ng mga kasalukuyan kong kaklase noon sa barkada ko bilang mga "kuya". (Sa wakas, hindi na lang ako iyong kuya. Yehey!) Nasa meeting na rin na iyon ang mga organizer mula sa Youth Ministry ng simbahan, isang grupo ng mga ATE at KUYA. (yeheY!) Sa pagpupulong ay hinati ang mga kabataan sa bawat departments, baguhan ako sa grupo kaya naman hindi ako umiimik at alam ko sa umpisa pa lamang ay doon na ako sa Props, dahil doon ang barkada ko. Ayos na sana ang lahat ng biglang napag-usapan ang pictorial, promotions at ang publicity. Dahan-dahan akong umatras at lumayo sa eksena ng biglang may sumigaw ng..."Si Kuya Marlon, "Photographer yan". (Patay, Umarte na lang akong walang alam), "Uhm...ano iyon pinagsasabi mo diyan? Wala akong alam, diyan, nahila lang ako dito." (hindi ako nag-papahumble, wala talaga akong alam) Unti-unting lumalakas sa background ang salita ng mga kaklase ko, "TAMA SI KUYA MARLON", OO NGA NANALO NGA YAN NG CAMERA EH, MAGALING YAN!".

Ganun, ganun lang. Bigla akong naging official photographer at Publicity and Promotions Department Head ng Senakulo.


Hilig ko naman talaga ang pagkuha ng litrato, ngunit noong mga panahong iyon ay wala pang isang taon sa akin ang camera ko kaya naman wala pa talaga akong kaalam alam sa pagkuha ng litrato (professionally). Ang hilig ko sa pagkuha ng litrato ay tipong "everyday photography". Wala akong definite subject at kinukuhaan ko ng litrato kung ano man mapag-tripan ko. Dahil dito, wala talaga akong karanasan sa pagiging "Official Photographer" lalo't sa mga tulad nitong events. Naging mahirap man ang karanasan ko sa Senakulo mula sa unang araw ng praktis hanggang sa araw ng production. Masasabi ko naman masaya at talagang rewarding ito dahil sa dami kong natutunan.

Limitado ang resources namin, wala kaming budget at mahirap mag-solicit noon sa mga pulitiko dahil hindi taon ng eleksyon ang 2006 kaya naman dapat marunong kaming mag-improvise.



Ang first pictorial ko as a photographer ay sa loob ng isang elementary classroom sa loob ng compound ng simbahan ng Holy Family sa San Andres Manila. Ang studio ko ay binalutan ng isang manipis na berdeng tela para sa aking "editing". Lighting? Lampshades at flashlights lang, solved na ang problema.


Dahil sa kakulangan ng budget, napilitan na rin akong matuto mag-edit ng litrato sa Photoshop. Photoshop 7.0 pa noon ang gamit ko na nahiram ko lang sa isang kaibigan. Ilang gabing trial and error din ang inabot at sa awa ng Diyos, kahit paano nakabuo rin naman ako ng posters. (Noong kuhaan ko sila ng litrato, hindi ito ang na-imagine kong maging itsura ng poster, mas hi-tech iyong image na nabuo ko sa isip ko pero dahil sa wala akong talent sa photoshop, pwede na rin iyong, pwede na.)





Matapos magawa at mailabas ang poster, unti-unting na akong nagkakaroon ng ideya na ang Senakulo pala hindi lang basta isang palabas. Ang paghahanda sa isang produksyon tulad nito ay hindi biro, maraming aspeto ang isang produksyon at lingid sa kaalaman ng mga manonood (kung meron man) ay ang isang palabas ay hindi lang tungkol sa gabi ng pagtatanghal. Bilang isang "Official Photographer", trabaho ko ang kuhanaan ang bawat pangyayari bilang bahagi na rin ng pagdokumento sa lahat ng nangyayari.

At syempre, matapos ang lahat ng paghahanda. Dumating din ang itinakdang araw. Dalawang gabi ang naging presentasyon ng aming senakulong may pamagat na REUNION WITH CHRIST. Hindi ko na masyadaong maalala ang kwento dahil madalas hindi naman ako nakakapanood ng praktis at kahit sa aktwal na palabas ay mas marami akong ibang inaasikaso kesa sa takbo ng istorya. Pero mapapansin sa posters na medyo makabago ang bersyon namin ng senakulo, tampok rito ang limang kabataan sa kasalukuyang panahon at kung paano nila nakilala si Kristo mula sa sarili nilang mga karanasan. Nasaksihan nila ang mga kaganapan noong panahon ni Kristo. Nagbalik sila sa panahon tulad ng sa palabas noon sa ABS na Bayani, aktwal nilang nasaksihan ang mga nangyari kay Kristo kaya naman muli nila itong nakilala. Syempre, katulong ng mga litrato, tayo naman ang magbalik sa araw ng pagtatanghal.







Naging matagumpay ang dalawang araw ng aming pagpapalabas at dahil dito masasabing nasulit naman ang lahat ng pagod. Naalala ko tuloy noong bata pa ako habang nakaupo akong nanood sa tuktok ng tricycle, sa paghihintay ko ng eksena sa pagpako kay Kristo, bigla kong naalala tuwing pinapatay ang ilaw para palitan ang set, naalala ko iyong mga taong hindi mapakali sa likod ng entablado, sa kabilang panig ng telon at mga taong hindi naman natin nakikita sa entablado ngunit kasing halaga rin pala ang ginagampanan nila sa bawat senakulo.

Ang Senakulo, para sa akin ay higit pa sa isang palabas at pagsasabuhay ng isang tradisyon. Lalo't higit ito sa eksena kung saan ipinapako na si Kristo. Ang Senakulo para sa akin ay isang ala-alang hindi ko na siguro malilimutan.

    QUESTION AND ANSWER!

    14 comments


    Sabi nila, pagdating daw sa mga beauty contest. "There is no such thing as a wrong answer" dahil ang sagot ng kalahok ay base sa kanyang perspektib na hinubog ng kanyang pansariling karanasan, paniniwala at sa mga bagay na kanyang pinahahalagaan. Walang tamang sagot, ngunit madalas may isang sagot, pagsalaysay at pagtugon sa mga katanugan na palaging mangingibaw dahil marahil ang mga salitang ito ay totoo para sa marami at hindi lang sa nasabing kalahok.


    I agree, there is no such thing as a wrong answer, but I think there is a Wrong Question.




    Ang Q&A portion sa mga beauty contest katulad ng Bb. Pilipinas ay ang pinaka-aabangan ng manonood dahil ito ang bahagi kung saan kadalasan napagdedesisyonan kung sino ang karapat-dapat magwagi. Isang patunay rito ang ingay na ginawa ng pagkapanalo ni Janina San Miguel noong nakaraang taon dahil marami ang nagsabing hindi siya karapat-dapat sa titulo. Ganoon na lang ang ingay ng nangyari kay Janina noong nakaraang taon dahil sa kanyang paraan ng pagsagot ngunit sa kasamaang palad, wala man lang taong nag-question sa kalidad ng mga katanungang ibinato ngayong taon para sa mga kandidato. Ang pinaka-basurang tanong para sa akin ay ang napunta kay Richelle Angalot (A.K.A Rich Asuncion).

    WHAT IS YOUR LUCKY NUMBER? Tanong ba naman ng matinong tao yan? Sa pagkakaalam ko tinatanong lang iyong mga ganyan sa chain-survey sa friendster. Iyong tipong mga nababasa natin sa bulletins. Paano mo naman i-elaborate iyong tanong na yan? kahit sabihin mo pang may follow-up question. Natalo na si Rich hindi pa man siya sumasagot. Balita pa naman noong una na isa siya sa favorite manalo dahil nanalo na rin naman siya ng ilang special awards. Hindi ko naman sinasabi na hindi deserving iyong ilang nanalo but I think mas maganda sana ang naging laban at basehan kung pareho ang tanong. Ayos lang sana kung lahat sila ganun ang tanong.

    Rich, sorry malas ka bumunot. Ganon na lang siguro.


    THE INFAMOUS JANINA SAN MIGUEL Q&A PORTION

    Hindi sa pagmamalinis, isa rin ako sa mga tumawa sa nangyari because it is funny, kahit si janina tumawa, but I would depend Janina to anyone. She did really well, like what she said. It's her first pageant and yet she reached the TOP 10. Nainis ako ng basahin ko ang mga comments sa video ni Janina San Miguel, at ilang videos rin ang ginawa para lang pagtawanan si Janina. Kung makapagsalita ang kapwa natin mga Pinoy akala mo naman kung sino silang mga magagaling.




    TRIVIA: This girl joined this year also, siya iyong tinanong kung ano iyong Idea mo of fun in the video above 2009 Q&A



    Here, you will see hindi si Janina ang unang kinabahan kapag on the spot na.



    Hands Down ako kay Licaros, Beauty and Brains talaga. Disregarding the question which is relatively easy, she was able to show she can be smart and be pretty at the same time.




    Kaya siguro tinawag na Q&A, mahalaga ang tanong pati ang sagot. Sana, they were offered the same question just like how they do it in Ms. Universe.

    The first time I saw Will Smith's movie "The Pursuit of Happyness" about three-months back, right then and there I knew at some point I'd be watching it again when the right time comes. That time came three days ago.



    "It was right then that I started thinking about Thomas Jefferson on the Declaration of Independence and the part about our right to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness. And I remember thinking how did he know to put the pursuit part in there? That maybe happiness is something that we can only pursue and maybe we can actually never have it. No matter what. How did he know that?"


    That quote above is what struck me the most on that movie, Chris Gardner (Will Smith's Character) said those lines when everything around him was starting to fall apart. Just like any person who is having all sorts of trouble, it really can't be helped and you just have to start asking questions. You begin to doubt things that you are once taught about when you were a kid, and even those things you've always believed in. Surely, it's not a coincidence that the word "pursuit" was placed in that declaration of Independence because some things just can't be given to you. To live, to be free that is your right and by theory you should have that, but Happiness? It's something that nobody else can give you but yourself because in the first place you have to define that word for yourself. Whether it's music, a bar of chocolate, your kids, your cup of coffee or world peace--you have to define happiness. It doesn't matter how simple or silly your definition is, what's important is that one thing, or person, or whatever that might be can give you that certain smile in your face no one or nothing else can. If you're lucky enough to still be alive by the time you realize what that word meant to you then you'd have to spend the rest of your time on the hard part--the "pursuit" part. The part where most of us fail, the part that decides the difference between the happily ever after and the not so happy at all after.


    RUBIK'S CUBE


    Coincidentally or not, the rubik's cube actually played a vital role in the movie on two levels. On one scene, Will Smith used the Rubik's cube to impress the job interviewer while he was trying to apply for the internship but more importantly it symbolized how will power and working hard is a good tool to win that pursuit for happiness. I used to be that person who thought that solving this cube is impossible, I was a kid back then and I used to easily give up until later when it became popular again and I saw that even my older sister can easily solve it. I didn't realize that they already have a manual you can use to help you solve it. However, even with that there are still things you'd have to do yourself, you still have to learn and practice it, you'd really have to put some serious time and effort before you can complete the cube on your own but when I did, I felt a sense of accomplishment. I was proud of myself because not only that I was able to prove I can do it, but also I disproved myself that it was impossible. Yet again there is another thing I can do, and one thing less that I can't do.

    PERSPECTIVE



    At some point, they say that you'd have to decide for yourself whether to look at the glass being half-full or half empty. It's all a matter of perspective, a perspective either influenced by wonderful and awesome experiences or by the sorrowful and troublesome experiences. Based on my experiences thus far, I'd say I see the the glass half-empty. I see it that way not because I'm a pessimists--if we are talking about experiences, I have every right and reason to justify being a pessimists but I am actually an optimists and a realists at the same time. Unlike the common definition of the word optimists, I don't just see all the good things in life, I also see a lot of things that are wrong, things that we can improve at, things we can change. I've learned to see opportunities behind tragedies that a typical optimists simply don't see.






    DEPRESSION

    Even a crazy fool like me should know that something is wrong when it takes you 3-5 hours every night just trying to get some sleep. It's not normal by any standards especially for a morning person like me, (well come to think of it not being able to sleep until the morning still makes me a morning person). What if I say that I've only been outside the house once for the last 5 months. That all I do everyday since October is be on the computer, do random stuff that my impulse dictates. Haven't anyone noticed? I've changed my lay-out about 3 times already, I have built 5 blogs in a span of 30 days but I deleted most of it the next month, weeks later I came up with a "Cute blogger ID" and made one for each person in my blog lists. I made Kitchie Nadal my girlfriend and I was band member of the E-heads. Now, my latest impulse is the PINOY YOUTUBE blog. Want more? I told that girl who invited me for Valentines that I will come that night but I didn't show up because I couldn't made up my mind until the last minute whether I should go or not. The same thing happened when I told my friends I'd come and meet them on a couple of occasions. I didn't show up on two baptismal ceremonies where on both occassions I was supposed to be a Godfather. The first one was that of my niece, and the second was that of my ex-girlfriend's daughter. I am bad right? Early this February, I got an invitation from the U.S embassy for a live video discussion with Martin Luther's King's Nephew in celebration of the Black History Month and Barack Obama's inauguration. Guess what? I didn't show up. I know on my normal state I wouldn't let something like that pass but I did. It was stupid, I know, but I did.

    It's a shame, but two days ago for the 2nd time in my life. I went on the internet, typed the word "depression" and I once again I took the online depression diagnostic exam. It's a terrible thing but I actually passed. I got a perfect score 10/10. So it's official, I am depressed.

    Here are the questions, it's just a yes or no.


    Q: Do you feel sad or irritable?
    Q: Have you lost interests in activities once enjoyed?
    Q: Have you experienced changes in weight or appetite?
    Q: Have you experienced changes in sleeping pattern?
    Q: Do you have feelings of guilt?
    Q: Are you unable to concentrate, remember things, or make decisions?
    Q: Have you experienced fatigue or loss of energy?
    Q: Have you experienced restlessness or decreased activity noticed by others?
    Q: Do you feel hopeless, or worthless?
    Q: Have you had thoughts of suicide or death?

    You answered 10 items out of 10 "Yes". According to The National Mental Health Association, 5 or more yes answers indicates that you may be suffering from clinical depression. This test cannot substitute for a visit to a mental health professional. It is meant only to give you an idea where to start a dialogue with your healthcare provider.
    Among all the questions asked, one made me asked myself above all the others because I couldn't believe I am answering a "yes" on that. Q: Do you feel hopeless, or worthless? Me? hopeless or worthless? The Marlon I used to know would never say "yes" to that question. He always felt he had a purpose and that he could be the difference. More than twice, already here in my blog I wrote things about the younger, wiser and the much better version of me. I wrote about it so I can be reminded about that person who I used to be, amidst this long process of soul-searching which I previously thought 3 months ago it was already over. The person everybody admired for having so much drive and passion. That person who used to be an inspiration for many people, that guy who spoke so proudly of his dreams that many people actually believed he can do it.

    DISK BOOT FAILURE, INSERT SYSTEM DISKS AND PRESS ENTER

    Just three days ago, I started getting this error message on my computer and whenever this happens, I am forced to open up my CPU and literally just check on the motherboard to see what's up and once I turn it back on, for some miraculously stupid reason--it would actually work again. It's very frustrating in a way because my computer has been my life for about 5 months now. I am literally not doing anything differently but it only seems to work whenever I open up the actual casing and stare at it for about a minute. It leads me to assume that there is something else, a reason why this is happening and I thought of only one thing. My computer breaks my routine so that I can have that 1 minute of thinking about doing something else aside from being in front of my computer, maybe it's telling me that I have to open up myself again and be out there in the real world to check up on Mother-Earth. (I agree, that's trying too hard to link it)


    The Real Thing

    I entered this soul-searching phase of my life more than 5 months ago for a one reason that I am not openly going to discuss, In fact, I hope that the need to discuss it again with anyone would never come again but I know better, I am sure it will and I'll face it when the time comes. It's about my father but that's all I'm going to say about it.

    However, midway through this whole process, another reason came up, it's not something new, I've had this "problem" for some years now but due to my optimistic and hopeful nature up until this day I still can't seem to get myself to let go of my "happiness."--that girl who can make me smile like nobody else can. She is how I define happiness for more than 3 years now. She is like that Rubik's cube, a puzzle that is almost impossible to solve but you know, after all the time and effort spent it is going to be all worth it because once you figure her out--she'll look perfect no matter how you look at her.

    Sadly though, she is that kind of happiness I can never have, no matter what. I simply can't. Again, let me say this, I am an optimists but also I am realists, somethings just can't be. I know how hard it is to force yourself to loving someone, but it's way more difficult to force yourself not to love someone. If a heart transplant could solve it, I would have done it, as many times it takes so that not a part of me will love her anymore.

    I stumbled upon this song, I heard this 3 days ago only but the lyrics says everything I think about during those many sleepless nights I have. I WANT THE REAL THING or NOTHING AT ALL.


    Here comes the night once again
    I am feeling lonely
    Oh, if only things got turn out like you planned

    Where could love be?
    Tell me why it’s so hard to find somebody
    Who would stand by me and take the time to understand?
    So we are again

    I want the real thing or nothing at all
    I need someone that I can be sure
    Who will catch me if I should fall
    Someone who’ll be there when I call
    And I know that it’s the real thing

    To hold me each night
    Someone to love me over and over
    Someone who’ll be there when I call
    Just give me the real thing

    Where is that moon?
    Who needs smile on this one more dreamer?
    Let your beam come down and fill my empty wound

    Here comes the night
    But if there’s still a chance love would find me
    I’m will be here crossing my fingers

    Or nothing at all
    I need someone that I can be sure
    Who’ll catch me if I should fall?
    Someone who’ll be there when I call
    I know that it’s the real thing

    To hold me each night
    Someone to love me over and over
    Someone who’ll be there when I call

    I wanna know for sure that I can feel secure
    Knowing I found an everlasting love
    Once I’ve got that on under control
    No I won’t let go

    I want the real thing or nothing at all
    I need someone that I can be sure
    Who will catch me if I should fall
    Someone who’ll be there when I call
    It’s got to be the real thing
    Got to be the real thing
    I’m making the future right
    Someone who’ll be there when I call
    Just got to be the real thing

    Paalam Francis M.

    13 comments

    Hindi masasabing hindi inaasahan ang pagpanaw ni Francis Magalona dahil marami naman ang nakakaalam ng tunay na kalagayan niya magmula ng mag diagnose siya sa sakit na Leukemia pero hindi mo rin masasabing handa ang isang tao sa pagpanaw ng isang taong mahalaga lalo sa pamilya ni Francis M.

    Hindi naman ako malaking fan ni Francis M. subalit bata pa man ako ay hangga na ako kay Kiko dahil siya ang unang karakter sa showbiz industry ang nakilala kong taas noo isinisigaw ang kanyang pagka-Pilipino--isang bagay na noon pa man ay pasibong itinuturo sa akin ng lahat na aking nakikita bilang isang bagay na dapat nating ikahiya. Isa siyang magandang halimbawa at inspirasyon. Hindi ko tuloy maiwasan malungkot sa kanyang pagkawala.

    Ang post na ito ay isang simpleng pagpupugay at isang malungkot na pagpapaalam sayo Francis Magalona, bilang isang kapwa blogger at isang kapwa Pinoy. Muli, Paalam.


    GUYS if you want to say your condolences to the family go to his blogsites:

    HAPPY BATTLE
    FREE MIND
