Friday I'm In Love W/ The TAZMANIAN DEVIL

The Tasmanian Devil (Sarcophilus harrisii) which is the only extant member of the genus Sarcophilusis is the largest carnivorous marsupial in the world found only in the Australian island state of Tasmania. It's the size of a small dog, but stocky and muscular. That's the real Tasmanian Devil!! But If we will be talking about the cartoon character then we have to say that The Tasmanian Devil, often referred to as "Taz" is a Warner Bros. Looney Tunes favorite animation character created by Robert McKimson back in 1954. Wheew!! That's how old TAZ is? Well, at present TAZ is one of the most recognizable members of the Looney Tunes roster because of both marketing and television appearances that helped increased the popularity of TAZ in the 1990s and up to now. One of those who pisses off Bugs Bunny and who would forget his whirls about like a dust devil that's similar to a tornado and sounds like several motors whirring. That's a classic "TAZ" indeed!! Here in MANILA if you're talking about NEW WAVE and TAZ then there's one thing that would pop-up in every PINOY WAVER's mind. YUP!! It's Legendary DZBM POWER105 DJ "The Tazmanian Devil" or "TAZ" for short. One of my favorite BM DJs I may say!!

This blogpost was requested by KABAYAN Jordan Victor Luciano aka."lunatic jordan" as HARRY NOLAN would call him and greet him on air. Lunatic? A "Looney"? A Looney Tunes character too? He He He!! Actually, Jordan(not Michael ok) is a freelance DJ and have been part of some other mobiles. He's also a part of this upcoming PRE-VALENTINES Party as DJ Jordan Luciano which is entitled "FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE with THE TAZMANIAN DEVIL" on February 13, 2009 at ROUTE 168 SPORTS AND DINER NO. 41 VISAYAS AVENUE, BARANGAY VASRA, QUEZON CITY...Together with Legendary POWER 105.1 DEEJAYS.... CHELE D, RANDY BROWN, SMILIN HARRY NOLAN, PAUL HUNTER, BOB KING!!! WITH SPECIAL GUEST DJs!... ERIC PASCUAL AND MIKE TIMBOL OF 33-1/3, RAMSEY GUZMAN OF RSL AND DJ DINDO LOPEZ OF CARDINAL AUDIO (Snoog!!! is that you? OoooopS!! Just having the same name.) , and with EXILE MOBILE. Hmmmp!! Star studded line-up guys!!

So who's the star of the party?..........It's "THE TAZMANIAN DEVIL"!!! YUP!! Ronnie Tengsico aka. "THE TAZMANIAN DEVIL" or "TAZ" became the sidekick of HARRY NOLAN back in 1987 as what I've written before. According to "lunatic jordan" It was Harry who gave the name "The Tazmanian Devil" to Sir Ronnie because during those times TAZ sported a long hairdo with a great smile. Hmmmp!! Both Harry and Taz met on 99.5RT just before going to DZBM POWER105. The Tazmanian Devil will be having a Pre-Valentines Party this FRIDAY THE 13th organized by ART OF SOUND and the POWER SWITCHERS. Nope!! It's not JASON. It's the DEVIL. He He He!!Definitely, "FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE" would be the right theme for this Party since It's going to be held on a Friday and I suppose they are all IN LOOOOVE. YUP!! The title was taken from one of my favorite songs from "THE CURE"!! Btw, lunatic jordan informed me that Taz is now working at Santa Ana Park as Race Analyst. Well, I guess the whirlwind tornado is "In The Running". I only met him once when we visited BM back in 1988. NICE GUY!!

I first heard of "FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE" on NU107 back in 1992 and saw the Video few days after at Channel 2's VIDEO HOT TRACKS and I fell IN LOVE with it. WOW!! GREAT VIDEO!! "New Wave na New Wave Talaga!!" It was taken from THE CURE's "WISH" album and was nominated for a Grammy Award and won the BEST MUSIC VIDEO from MTV. That's why the video was great. Hmmmp!! The single became #1 in U.S. MODERN ROCK CHARTS which definitely made it one of the most popular songs from THE CURE. In the Lyrics "I don't care if Monday's blue" refers to New Order's Classic Dance hit "Blue Monday". So how about Tues, Wed, Thurs, Sat, and Sun? Naaaah!! I DON'T CARE if Monday's Blue. He He He!!



Here's a photo of the real marsupial "Tasmanian Devil"

Here's Two Different Live Performances Of "FRIDAY I'M IN LOVE" by "THE CURE" courtesy of "cure msg" and "hangin72back". THANKS GUYS!!
