Tagalog Podcast: Black Eyed Peas

Apl. de. ap of the Black Eyed Peas was interviewed by the San Francisco Chronicle reporter Benjamin Pimental.

In the Tagalog version of interview with Black Eyed Peas' Apl, you'll hear excerpts in Tagalog and also in Taglish.

I dunno... Ben Pimentel (of Cubao?) spoke Tagalog with a slight accent.

(10/10/2005 Clarification: it was not a Cubao accent, hence the question mark after "Cubao". And no, I don't dislike your accent, Ben.)

Apl. de. ap's Tagalog sounded more fluent. His Tagalog rap sounded like it was coming from a next-door neighbor here in Manila. Pinoy na pinoy talaga ang dating.

(You'll also hear the nickname Apl. de. ap's Sapang Bato-mates christened him with.)

Looks like BEP's "Bebot" is quite popular. Even Lolo raved about it. Imagine, 80 years old and talking about the Black Eyed Peas! You'll hear part of the refrain of "Bebot" in the early portion of the Tagalog "podcast" -- No, wait... It's not really a Tagalog podcast. It just happens to be a podcast episode of SFGate that contains Tagalog.

Of the Pinoy podcasts I mentioned here in the past, only the "Sini-Gang" has consistently come out with a podcast. I guess people are just too busy to record and clean up an audio file; afterall, it's so much easier to just type.

Podcasting will eventually die, but don't let that stop you from putting your MP3 voice recordings online. I'm sure there'll always be someone who will enjoy your collection of audio files.

If you know of a predominantly Tagalog podcast, please let me know. Thanks!
