Rockin’ at Jackstock

Jack TV turns four this year. Not bad for a channel that has battled its share of demons – from monopolistic cable companies to rosary-whipping EWTN junkies who once waged a “holy war” to get the channel off-air. So what better way to mark this milestone than by celebrating the three things they know best: fun, comedy, and non-stop music!

Last Saturday, Jack TV celebrated its anniversary with Jackstock 2009, a 12-hour extravaganza of all things definitely funny and definitely Jack.  Throughout the day, the Eastwood Central Plaza became a Mecca of fun activities which culminated in the evening with sets from the Comedy Cartel and performances from today’s hottest bands.

I’m really not what you would call an “Embuh” person. I wouldn’t be caught dead gyrating to the beats of “tugz tugz tugz” in a sea of sweaty, inebriated clubbers. But last Friday, I found myself doing just that in the controversial club, when ETC held the press launch for Project Runway Philippines Season Two.

Despite the larger venue, the launch wasn’t really as full-blown as last year’s. There were no afternoon cocktails, no special preview of the contestants’ sample designs, and no press conference. This year’s event was just one huge gala, comprised mainly of interviews and a sneak preview of the first episode which could have gone a lot smoother.

But at least the technical problems did not distract from the real highlight of the event, which was the introduction of the 13 designers:
