Baste's Birthday Concert!

Photo: Official EB Facebook

Today is the 4th birthday of Eat Bulaga's favorite concert king, their very own BAE-by Baste and our favorite little Dabarkad just had the biggest birthday bash he ever had, literally! We all thought that's not going to happen because of that truck horn we heard at the end of the Kalyeserye segment but it did happened. Fans witnessed the best of Baste as well as a musical number alongside presenter Vic Sotto and some cakes offered for him. Looks like he really wants MORE of this birthday bash.

Maserati Levante vs. Bentley Bentayga

The Italian sportscar company, Maserati, is morphing from Italy's Porsche to Italy's BMW ever since cars like the Quattroporte and the Ghibli are slotting alongside the aging GranTurismo coupe and if that wasn't enough, a new SUV, called the Levante, is joining the ranks of the Maserati lineage.

2017 Maserati Levante

The Levante is Maserati's first ever SUV that was made to compete against the likes of Porsche's Macan, BMW's X3, Mercedes' GLC, Audi's Q5, even Jaguar's first ever F-PACE and because SUVs are becoming the norm in today's automotive society, the Levante proves that it handles like a Maserati even in its bigger packaging fit for the outdoorsmen in them. Fitting for the high rollers who have a hectic lifestyle ahead after their long week of business, the Levante caters them with something that its competitors had with a major twist.

Although the Levante's design is what you called kinky, it's still sexy from every angle even for a bulky exterior. You can think of it as a bouncer who knows how to kick butts with his martial arts per se. On the inside, the dashboard is highly reminiscent of the Porsche Cayenne with the shift lever looks like it came from BMW. At least it wasn't as complicated as the Cayenne when you operate the gizmos offered on the Levante. For a five-seater crossover with lots of room in the back, this is the more practical one for your next week off from work.

For an SUV, the Levante sits in the same stuff that you get in the Ghibli and Quattroporte saloons and at launch, the turbocharged 3.0L V6 was offered in petrol and diesel guise, mated to an 8-speed automatic gearbox. The petrol version produces up to 430HP of power and does 0-100kph in 5.2 seconds with the top speed of 264kph, more than what the Germans can do. The diesel version promises fuel economy as low as 7.2 litres/100 km under the New European Driving Cycle, although that consumption for a diesel-powered Maserati does raise some eyebrows to those conspiracy theorists who are still clueless about diesels and their discrepancies. Although we remain clueless, the Levante was benefitted by its clever aerodynamics system that takes charge of its engine temperature, reduces the aerodynamic drag of the car and subsequently reduces fuel consumption and emissions.

Despite being heavier than the Ghibli, the new Levante handles with precision thanks to its Q4 All-Wheel Drive system and Torque Vectoring and although too grippy to be called a fun car full-stop, its well-balanced dynamics made it a serious player in the sport crossover genre. Get use to it more and you will be able to accept that the Levante is a good car to handle despite its chunks. In other terms, it behaves just like what a Maserati should.

There are some feared that despite its potential capabilities, the Levante can't live up to the Maserati lineage because its too bulky to be classified for a sportscar. Too bulky to be a sportscar, huh? What if there's something that is way too bulky to be a sportscar, it isn't one?

2016 Bentley Bentayga
This is the first ever SUV from Bentley, called the Bentayga and with its design as bizarre as its naming, you can consider this mammoth to be the most outlandish car made by the Brits. Underneath its whopperness lies a brand new 6.0L W12 TSi engine producing 608PS of power and 900Nm of torque. Couple that to an 8-speed gearbox, it does 0-100kph near the five second mark and onwards to 301kph. 

Although the Bentayga is one of the most powerful SUVs in the planet, you can't just storm in like what others did with the Continental GT because its dynamics are so the drama for a whopper supreme of that size. Car enthusiasts had to admit that the Bentayga's interior is the most luxurious for a crossover, even a Range Rover can't have those kind of stuff found on the Bentayga, but considering the struggle on how to get it round the corner or tackle off-road in uncharted territories, the Bentayga wasn't made for the most insane drivers everywhere, considering the load and effort needed to turn this bulky machine around from A to Z, unless if you get the Bentley Dynamic Ride system kicking alive and well, which gives the driver many ways to drive in different conditions.

Pricing? That sounds like too much for a whopper supreme because the Bentayga starts at £160,200, which is more costly than the Levante's starting price of 73,417 Euros, depending on exchange rates and region. So, there you have it. With their first ever SUVs step into the luxury car limelight, it's everyone's fair play for the two because if you are interested in dynamics, the Levante is the better bet, but if its power and luxury you're after, you can go with the awkwardly styled and named Bentayga. Whichever you go for, it's anyone's guess.

Scaldarsi's intimidating take on the Mercedes-Maybach S-Class

As luxury cars expertly modified by professional shops with craftsmanship in mind, it always resulted to its intimidation and swagger that makes bystanders and average drivers the jitters. Give it some chrome, some loud equipment, some big engine, and whatever they see fit, they always think that there's some rich and powerful megalomaniac taking over the streets. Such example is a Mercedes-Maybach S600 flagship that was been tailored by the rising luxury vehicle company Scaldarsi Motors, situated in Montreal, Canada.

Scaldarsi Emperor I

This is the first of Scaldarsi's Emperor range and their first offering is based on the Mercedes-Maybach S600, called the Emperor I, and pretty soon, this Canada-based shop will craft Emperor machines based on luxury machines like the S-Class Coupe, the Bentley Bentayga, G-Class, and (!) the Bugatti Chiron.

The exterior modifications done by Scaldarsi is by no means the most intimidating for a modified S-Class saloons, judging from its enlarged front grille, gold accents, specially-made wheels, quad port exhaust, and a bespoke interior design packed with exotic leathers, array of gadgets, and unmatched craftsmanship.

Under the hood is the 6.2L V12 BiTurbo engine tweaked by Brabus, delivering a monstrous 888HP of power and a 0-60mph time of 3.7 seconds. Now that's scary, I dare say.

By request, Scaldarsi will offer clients with a specially-designed tote bags, a special watch in collaboration with Rolex, and a custom key fob with the Scaldarsi insignia that is too intimidating for every high rollers' pockets.

We would be extremely damned when we see this heavily-modified Maybach S-Class intimidating the traffic ahead.

Forza Motorsport 6: Lil Macintosh

We all enjoy driving some of the best cars McLaren offered in FM6 such as the legendary F1, the technological MP4-12C, the ultra-powerful P1, and the swift 650S. With the arrival of the baby McLaren, the 570S, via the T10 Select Car Pack in-game, we wonder how does the little one lives up to the family tree even though they got the same bloodline between them.


But first, what's it all about the 570S? Premiered at the 2015 New York International Auto Show, the McLaren 570S, the first of the British sportscar company's Sports Series, marks its entry to the luxury sports car market. As the smallest in the McLaren range, it slots below the larger 650S.

Even though it is the smallest McLaren in the range, it still comes with the same 3.8L V8 Twin Turbo engine as the McLaren family tree but true to its name, it produces 570PS of power and 442lb-ft of torque. Apart from the performance, the 570S features a full carbon fiber chassis, resulting to a dry weight of 1,313kg and the power-to-weight ratio of 434PS per tonne.

Following its launch, the Sports Series feature additional variants aside from the 570S such as the less-powerful 540C coupe and the more cruise-worthy 570GT, which comes with road-tuned dynamics and a glass roof.


It maybe the baby in the McLaren family tree but by the way it behaves, the 570S feels like every other McLaren I knew and to compensate such a short power output in the range, its carbon fiber bodywork really makes it capable to flex its muscles through the bends. It almost feels like an extreme track toy in so many levels and if you get the hang of it, the 570S might just be the McLaren you're falling in love with since the ultra-powerful P1 and the 650S. If you got the guts to understand how the 570S feels for you, you can keep driving this car as long as you want until you figure out its inner strength hidden beneath its carbon fiber body.

To demonstrate, I'm at Silverstone to try this baby McLaren and to find out if its any good as any supercars get, I need a car capable of producing the same character as the 570S and I think I found something from the supercar history books.


As you can see here, I am rejoined by my old friend,the Lamborghini Gallardo Superleggera and even though they produce the similar power output, the 570S has the upper hand due to its lightweight body and chassis but because the Gallardo's four-wheel drive, feels like this car wants a little "come get some" in a posthumus manner. Of course, the Gallardo's already replaced by the Huracan but its reputation as the baby McLaren that slot below its V12 brother can never be forgotten. Okay, let's start the battle, shall we?


The results: The Gallardo did it in 2:28.971 while the 570S did it in 2:26.232, around two seconds quicker. Not bad for a baby McLaren, though.


And there you have it, despite its youth, the new McLaren 570S is a well-matured supercar that is primed and ready to take on even the most mature of supercars the world has thrown at it and with this car ready to take on the world, the 570S is a prime specimen that is ready to follow the footsteps of the 650S and the P1 from the McLaren lineage. Welcome to the family.

Mitsuoka stretched the Vellfire minivan as the Grand Limousine

No. This is not merely fiction, it exists in the real world now as Mitsuoka, noteworthy for the late and horrendous Orochi sportscar and their conversion of everyday cars into faux neo-classic cars like the Teana-based Galue and the Corolla-based Ryugi, goes unorthodox by stretching the Vellfire minivan into a limousine, something that gives anyone who owned any kind of minivan-based limousines, even the old Hyundai Grand Starex Limousine, some jitters.

Mitsuoka Vellfire Grand Limousine


Using the latest-generation Toyota Vellfire as its basis, this stretched van, called the Grand Limousine, will be available to the public starting the 22nd of August, costing 10.26 to 11.048 million Yen. It will make an appearance at the ENDEX 2016 at the Tokyo Big Sight on the 22nd to 24th of August.

Mitsuoka Vellfire Grand Limousine


Although, little is known about the Grand Limousine's interior, shown above, the Grand Limousine accommodates up to five passengers. It measures 6335mm of length, 1850mm of width, and 1930mm of height. Powering the Grand Limousine is the same Dual VVT-i 2.5L DOHC petrol engine which produces 180PS of power and 235Nm of torque, connected to a CVT. It can be offered in both front-wheel drive or four-wheel drive.

"AIKATSU STARS! the MOVIE" VOCAL SINGLE

Following last week's showing of the Aikatsu Stars movie, which served as the turnaround for the ongoing TV show, airing on TV Tokyo every Thursday evenings, a vocal single inspired from the movie has arrived and here's hoping that little girls who watched the movie with their mommies last weekend can savor their favorite songs heard from the movie.

"AIKATSU STARS! the MOVIE" VOCAL SINGLE

In this vocal single, inspired from last weekend's Aikatsu Stars movie, now showing in theaters across Japan, it features two songs as heard from the film such as the brand new song POPCORN DREAMING♪, performed by the AIKATSU☆STARS! singers and the quadret version of the every Aikatsu Stars fan's favorite song with the song so catchy, they got the whole song stuck in their heads for sometime. Yep, it's the Yume-Rola-Ako-Mahiru version of アイカツ☆ステップ! Care to sing the アイカツ☆ステップ! song for you? Hope you won't because by the time the catchy lyrics are mentioned here, you'll still be trapped by the catchy song you heard since the beginning of the Aikatsu Stars TV show.

Anyway, for limited quantities, the VOCAL SINGLE comes with a special Aikatsu card for use in the Data Carddass Aikatsu Stars arcade game. Get your parents permission first.

First, there's the 765 Channel part where how the girls prepared to do this song behind the scenes and the second audio drama part is straight from the files of Kotori Otonashi, regarding what is going on with the 765 PRO idols behind the scenes.

Let's Do The News! (August 17, 2016)


- The death toll for the habagat onslaught has now reached 13, with nine missing and six wounded, according to the National Disaster Risk Reduction and Management Council. About 55,963 families of 262,271 individuals were dislocated by the habagat rains in Region 1, III, CALABARZON, Region VI, NCR, and CAR.

- Back to the imminent Marcos burial, Malacanang officials said the burial of late President Ferdinand Marcos at the Libingan ng mga Bayani would push through in September unless the Supreme Court issues a temporary restraining order against it.

- The Sandiganbayan granted the motion of Pampanga representative Gloria Macapagal-Arroyo to travel to Germany, France, and Hong Kong. The Fourth Division of the Sandiganbayan ordered the former president and her husband, former First Gentleman Jose Miguel Arroyo, to deposit a travel bond before the court. The court granted Arroyo's request to leave for Munich and Paris not earlier than September 19 and must return not later than October 3. As for Hong Kong, Arroyo was allowed to leave not earlier than October 29 and must return by November 4. 

- Back for some more of Trump's provocations, Republican Presidentiable Donald Trump vows to reject "bigotry and hatred and oppression in all its forms" following his slow response to the support of a former KKK leader and racially tinged comments about a judge's ethnicity generated controversy. His statement came the same day that was campaigning in the Milwaukee area, where violent protests that erupted after police killed a suspect who authorities said was armed. Still, could be worse, he was leading against his rival Hillary Clinton in the poll among military households by 10 points, based on the survey conducted by NBC News/SurveyMonkey Weekly Election Tracking Poll.

- The death toll from the deadliest flood in Louisiana has reached 11. A levee was overtopped in one parish and over three-quarters of the homes were destroyed in another parish. Eight more parishes were added to the existing federal disaster zone, for a total of 20, and overnight curfews were in effect for over a dozen cities and parishes. Since Friday, most of the state has gotten more than a foot of rain and some parts have been swamped with as much as 30 inches, according to the National Weather Service. It was the worst disaster that struck the US since Hurricane Sandy four years ago.

- The Russians used an Iranian air base for the first time to launch a "concentrated airstrike" against the Islamic State group and other militants in Syria. The move appears to be a gesture against the US and other countries supporting Syrian rebels. Russian Defense Ministry said on Tuesday that Russia flew Tu-22M3 bombers and Su-34 fighter-bombers from the Hamadan air base in western Iran. The planes struck targets linked to Jabhat Fatah al-Sham, formerly the Nusra Front. In response, the US State Department expressed a sense of caution against Russia's use of a military base in Iran and if proven true, Russia would violate the UNSC resolution concerning Iran.

- Norway's Ministry of Transport denied reports that the country is planning to ban gas and diesel vehicles by 2025, saying new technology would do the job (in the long term) rather than regulations. Norway's leaders want to "encourage more environmentally friendly vehicles by using the carrot instead of stick." Meanwhile, Holland's ban on gas-powered cars by 2025 is making progress while older gas-powered vehicles would be legal due to the grandfather clause.

- The Challenger T/A and Charger Daytona special edition models returned at the Dodge lineup for the 2017 model year with special extras in store for each.


- Here's the first trailer for the upcoming TV drama, Till I Met You, starring James Reid, Nadine Lustre, and JC Santos. It's set to air on ABS-CBN on the 29th of August, 2016.

The Cute Wall (Volume Fifteen)

Now, the moment of truth is time because it's now time to do...THE CUTE WALL!



Yes, it's back and we still have some unfinished business to deal with because you may remember putting Laala Manaka on the CUTE WALL a couple of months ago and because she's from Pripara, we're gonna need more Pripara idols in the wall

And so are the Aikatsu Stars.

What?

There are more Aikatsu Stars characters that haven't been put in the wall. We have Ako, Koharu, and Mahiru to name a few. Anyway, more to these gals later on but first...




Mirei Minami

Wait. I know her. That's Mirei Minami, right?

Yes. We'll start off with her.

But, didn't Mirei Minami somewhat a Ritsuko Akizuki-lookalike? Why the one with the blond hair?

The Mirei with the glasses is just her normal look but in her idolized state, she looks like...um...

The idol girl poster from Metal Gear Solid V?

(audience laughing)

Because looking at her idolized state, Mirei looks a lot like a distraction to soldiers everywhere when they saw one plastered on a cardboard box and got distracted by it.

(audience laughing)

For an idol girl, she's quite an eye sore when anyone got distracted by her charms but I think there's one big problem about Mirei.

What is it?

Take a look at her...

(audience laughing)

Oh no! She's broken!

Yeah, she's suffering some kind of technical difficulties. (laughing)

(audience laughing)

So, where should we put her?

Oh, I think I know where to put her. In the NAKAKAGIGIL section.

(audience laughing, then applause)

NAKAKAGIGIL? As in, cuter than Laala?!

(applause)

Anyway, moving on...

Sophy Hojo

Any Pripara fans who are fans of Sophy Hojo?

(audience murmuring)

Sophy Hojo?

Yes. What is it you want to talk about her?

Nothing, really. It's just that philosophy's in her name. Get it? Philo-sophy!

(audience laughing, Fantastic Baby by BIGBANG plays)

So you're saying that Sophy's got some philosophy when it comes to her talents, eh?

Not quite, really, because sometimes, she often gets in her way during their escapades. But hey, at least she looks cute in her idolized self on stage. Couple that with Laala and Mirei and they can be a fantastic trio in the stage.

The SoLaMi Smile huh?

I mean, we got the whole trio in the wall! We got Laala, we got Mirei, who's probably going to be fixed by now, and now, we got Sophy, which I'll be putting her in the CUTE spot. Nothing more, nothing less.

(applause)

Well, now that we got the SoLaMi Smile trio patched on the Cute Wall, with Mirei being the cutest of the three, let's see some more Pripara idols to be named on the wall we have...hey! What are you doing with that girl?

(POW!)

(BLAM!)

(BIFF!)

(KA-BLAM!)

You're name is Sion, huh? Come on, face me! Fight me...like a girl!

Hey, wait a minute!

(POW!)

(BLAM!)

(BIFF!)

(KA-BLAM!)

Several Punches and Kicks Later

Are you okay?

Ugh....ugh...never approach to a buttkicker again, especially when the buttkicker you're facing with is Sion.

Did you mean this Sion?

Sion Todo
Sion Todo?

Huh?

My goodness, you must have mistaken her for Sion from The Bouncer.

(audience laughing)

Never mind. Whoever the heck it is, stay away from Sion...Todo. She's a real buttkicker and she nearly groped me in the middle of...a fight!

(audience laughing)

Anyway, I don't need explanations about that Sion tomboy I dealt with because her buttkicking attitude really explains a lot. I should be putting her in SERIOUSLY NOT CUTE!

(audience laughing)

Huh? But I was going to mention she was part of the trio called Dressing Pafe.

Whatever!

(audience laughing, then applause)

Well, since you mentioned Dressing Pafe, and with Sion listed as SERIOUSLY NOT CUTE because she attacked me from head to toe like...a bouncer from The Bouncer, have you got the West girls ready?

Dorothy and Reona? Yes. They're here a minute ago.


Dorothy and Reona West

Just to be clear, Dorothy's the one with the blue hair while the one with the pink hair Reona. Anyway, thoughts about the gals? They're almost kinda reminds me of the Futami twins from THE IDOLM@STER in so many levels. Hey, at least sorority also applies in the idol girl world eh? I mean, we got the Jougasaki sisters from Cinderella Girls, the Futami twins from THE IDOLM@STER, the Kurosawa sisters from Love Live Sunshine, and the West girls from Pripara. Sisters! By Chance!

(audience laughing)

More like sisters by fate, if you ask me. Anyway, do they act differently? I mean, Dorothy's the spunky one while Reona's the soft one.

Well, now that you mentioned it, where should we put these gals?

With the Dressing Pafe trio now at the wall, they both get seated to the CUTE spot. Welcome to the club, West girls.

(audience laughing, then applause)

So, with SoLaMi Smile and Dressing Pafe on the wall, let's check out what other Pripara idols we can meet up next. Let's see...uh...uh-oh.

What's wrong?

Aroma Kurosu

(some audience ran away in panic)

Uh...who the heck is this? Why is anyone running away?

(audience murmuring)

Who? Aroma Kurosu?

(audience murmuring)

From Gaarmageddon?

(audience murmuring)

She's a...little demon?

(audience murmuring)

She's a thousand times scarier before Yoshiko Tsushima from Love Live Sunshine emerged?

(audience murmuring)

Oh. Now I get it. I understand why anyone got away when they saw this little demon girl. Oh well, best to put it on SERIOUSLY NOT CUTE where it's safe.

(cheers and applause)

You did it!

Did what?

You did the right thing here! Putting that scary-looking Aroma Kurosu to the SERIOUSLY NOT CUTE spot because demons like her don't deserve to be put to the top spot.

In the same way we did to Yohane?

Yeah. So, anyone from Gaarmageddon you might be interested with?

Mikan Shiratama

Mikan Shiratama? Interesting.

She's the exact opposite of the feared Aroma Kurosu you've been dealing with earlier. To put it in other terms, she's the angelic half of Gaarmageddon because Aroma's the devilish half of the trio.

You're right, she's the exact opposite but she likes to eat...a lot. Isn't that obvious for an idol who spends time eating lots of snack? There's another problem with Mikan...she looks boring.

(audience laughing)

Although I find Mikan to be rather boring, I'll just put her in NOT CUTE.

(audience laughing)

All right. If you say so. Who's next?

Gaaruru

Oh, I know this entity. That's... (growling)

(audience laughing)

(growling)

(growling)

(audience laughing)

Why are growling like dogs?

I don't know! Perhaps her name sounds like a growl to me even though it goes G-A-A-R-U-R-U.

(growling)

(growling)

(audience laughing)

(growling)

(growling)

(growling)

(growling)

(growling) SERIOUSLY NOT CUTE (growling)

(audience laughing)

(panting) Sheesh, no time to talk like dogs. At least we got the Gaarmageddon trio listed on the wall. Any others?

TRIANGLE

The TRIANGLE trio?

The TRIANGLE trio. You have Junon, Kanon, and Pinon. The trio really got me on...a few times.

(audience laughing)

Really? Are any one of the TRIANGLE trio turned you on?

Uh...no.

(audience laughing)

So, it's a no-no?

A no-no.

(audience laughing)

Sorry girls. The TRIANGLE trio are dropped to the NOT CUTE spot

(awww)

Well, we got all Pripara idols in store...

Wait! We're not finished yet. We still have a few left and we got a very special ones in store in the cute wall. Ladies and gents, here's Falulu!

Falulu

(cheers and applause)

Step right here, Your Highness.

She's not really a highness, is she?

Never mind. Let's have a talk with Falulu...

Right, let's deal with...Your Highness.

SEVERAL MINUTES LATER

Well, at least Your Royal Highness has left. Any thoughts?

Ugh. I was just talking to a vocal doll just like (growling) but she did told me something. She told me that she'll be giving me a royal treatment with her if I put her to the cute spot of the wall. So, I guess I should put her to CUTE where safe.

Well, if this is what Falulu deserves, be my guest.

(audience murmuring)

Hey, what's with that chatter?

Look!

Hibiki Shikyoin and Fuwari Midorikaze

Your Real Highnesses are here. Fuwari and Hibiki.

Oh my. Excuse me! Coming through! Pardon me! Let me through!

SEVERAL MINUTES LATER...

So, what do you think about these "royal highnesses" in the world of Pripara?

Can't believe fans got gaga over these royalties. Not sure why they are fan favorites on the Pripara series. Fuwari's nice but I don't think I'm in love with that Hibiki person. I guess I should put Fuwari on CUTE while Hibiki's on SERIOUSLY NOT CUTE.

Uh...think ahead before doing the verdict on these royals.

(audience laughing)

Oh well. At least we got all the Pripara favorites on the wall. Guess we have so little time left to deal with the other Aikatsu Stars gals. We only have five minutes left so here goes nothing.


Koharu
Nanakura

Ako Saotome

Mahiru
Kasumi

Thoughts about them? We got little time left!

Okay! Koharu's a modest type of student and a good friend of Yume's aside from Rola so it's a CUTE for her. Ako's a gutsy type who has a fierce opposition to Yume so it's a SERIOUSLY NOT CUTE for her, and Mahiru is a stylish type who wants to be just like her sister, who is a member of the elite S4. Not sure about her but it's a NOT CUTE for me.

(ding!)

Okay! Time's up! At least we made it just in time. Phew...
