Quickie



The UP Film Institute is holding move-over screenings for this year’s Cinemalaya. One of the movies that will be screened is Cris Pablo’s Quickie, starring Andro Morgan and newcomer Topher Baretto. It’s the story of a family breadwinner who discovers the joys and thrills of quick sex from chance encounters, as an escape from the harsh realities of life.  That is, until one chance encounter deepens into a relationship.  Quickie will be shown on August 23 [Saturday] 7.30 pm. Uncut, of course.

Andro Morgan does Quickie

On an early morning drive to Manila a week ago, I saw a strikingly tall and appealing guy walking along South Super Highway, sweaty in his basketball barangay liga outfit.  I recognized him as Andro Morgan, who once appeared butt-naked in the video Masahe M2M. He’s been in lots of bikini contests [and won some] and lots of indie movies [and wowed some]. So he is already a veteran in the biz, we can safely say so.  Now, he is in a new movie called Quickie [check out the blurb:  Mabilis. Masarap. Masakit. Minadaling Pag-Ibig] from Sinehan Digitales and Queeriosity Video Project.  The movie, directed by Cris Pablo [Duda, Bilog , Bathhouse, Pitong Dalagita, Moreno] ,  will have a July 17 preem at the Cinemalaya 2008 and an August 9 Director’s Cut screening at the UP Film Center.

Andro Morgan for all to see

But of course, you’ve seen all of Andro Morgan from my previous posts. And then again, I thought I might just post one more photo of the guy in all his glory. Again. He was the only one who didn’t have any reservations stripping in the video Masahe M2M, as he did a full frontal. Andro Morgan, a graduate of North Fairview High School, previously appeared as a bit player on tv and first runner-up at the Valentino Magazine Coverboy Search.

Dick-a-Day: Andro Morgan

Well whadd’ya know, dick-a-day is back! And Andro Morgan is the featured guy. Those who bought the M2M Masahe video are familiar with this 21-year-old guy: he was the one who did the full monty. Prior to that, he was seen in the indie flick, Moreno. Andro Morgan, earlier known by his screen name Kerk Vincent, was a regular in summer bikini opens: Hataw Superbodies 2006, Mr. Aura 2006 of Bar Uno [winner], 5 de Mayo in Cavite, and as first-runner-up in the Mr. Valentino Magazine Coverboy Search. He also appeared in GMA-7 before, in supporting roles for the station’s fantasy series.

If You Forget Me

This is from one of my drippy-favorite poems by Pablo Neruda, just in time for Valentine’s Day. Yes, I believe in the myth of V-Day, if you ask me. And my wish to you all: May you find peace despite your circumstances this Valentine’s Day!

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
near the fire
the impalpable ash
or the wrinkled body of the log,
everything carries me to you,
as if everything that exists,
aromas, light, metals,
were little boats
that sail
toward those isles of yours that wait for me.

Well, now,
if little by little you stop loving me
I shall stop loving you little by little.

If suddenly
you forget me
do not look for me,
for I shall already have forgotten you.

If you think it long and mad,
the wind of banners
that passes through my life,
and you decide
to leave me at the shore
of the heart where I have roots,
remember
that on that day,
at that hour,
I shall lift my arms
and my roots will set off
to seek another land.

But
if each day,
each hour,
you feel that you are destined for me
with implacable sweetness,
if each day a flower
climbs up to your lips to seek me,
ah my love, ah my own,
in me all that fire is repeated,
in me nothing is extinguished or forgotten,
my love feeds on your love, beloved,
and as long as you live it will be in your arms
without leaving mine

Buck: Andro Morgan

Early last year, he was known as Andrew Llanillo, an eighteen-year old upstart, doing bit roles in GMA-7’s primetime fantasy soaps. Growing impatient perhaps with his 15 minutes of instant fame, he changed name to Kerk Vincent and went on to pose for the gay rags in all his naked glory. Reverting to his original name, Andro Morgan also won Bar Uno’s Mr. Aura, a bikini contest. Soon, thereafter, he was seen in Hataw Superbodies Bikini contest this year and a stint at the T Show, where, of course, he went comfy and got buck-arse naked in publicity photos and onstage.
