si filemon, si filimon
My Orchestral band for which I play the piano, the Asian Troubadours have recently released its Timeless Visayan and Russian Classics CD. The CD contains 7 enduring Cebuano/Visayan folk Classics, and details of its release can be found in their site.
In addition to promoting Cebuano folk songs in music, we will be releasing a series of MTV featuring their music and performances.
Si Filemon, si Filimon is the first of the series. It is a lighthearted song about a fisherman’s travels to catch the bounty of the sea and returned emptyhanded. It is a folk song popularized in the 60s and 70s by Yoyoy villame, and is mostly sang in parties and celebrations, as well as festivities. comments are welcome!

Pet owners will often go to any length to protect the health of their furry and feathered friends. Now a new survey suggests that one in three smokers would consider kicking the habit after learning that smoking poses a danger to pets.

Zimbabwe just printed a 100 trillion zim dollar note. Wow! Its worth 300 US dollars as of this reading, but may be worth less than 100 USD soon…. and soon, may be worth a dollar…
