Phil'er up

Maligayang pagdating, ang aking mga kaibigan sa Filipino, upang ang namumuko Ventriloquist Winter Olympic Coverage.

Welcome, my Filipino friends, to the Budding Ventriloquist Winter Olympic Coverage.

As you can see, sometimes the online translators just can't help you. I will buy a beer for anyone who can provide the Filipino/Tagalong words for Budding Ventriloquist Winter Olympic Coverage.  A high falutin' one, too. (I usually only drink medium falutin' ones at best.  It's a Milwaukee "macro-brew" thing.)

The Philippines did not send a team of their own, but a few athletes of Filipino descent are there.

Filipino-American speed skater and bronze medalist J.R. Celski was disqualified in the men's 1000-meter short track speed skating event. The half-Filipino, half-Polish speed skater was disqualified for bumping a Canadian.

Way to make your guests feel welcome, Canada. Keep your guests in line.  Be sure they don't put their glass on your grand piano, either.

Also, Filipino-American Amanda Evora, with partner Mark Ladwig, competed in the figure skating pairs competition in the 2010 Vancouver Olympics. They didn’t medal, but managed personal bests in their first ever Olympic Games.
And hang on to your socks. When you say Filipino ventriloquism, you only need to say Ony Carcamo. And then say, "wow."

This schtick is too cool.  As Ony's website describes it:

After a few minutes of dialogues (let's not mention the whole routine here), Ony and Nonoy invite an audience member on stage. Nonoy instructs the volunteer to puts several strips of masking tape over Ony's mouth, so Ony--and Nonoy, of course--can't talk...

But a miracle happens!
Nonoy continues to talk... and talk... and talk!
Enjoy.

This is turning into a fascinating collection of foreign language ventriloquist videos, don't you think?

As merely a budding ventriloquist, I think of how my ventriloquism attempts sound just like this, except I'm speaking English.

Besides you may think that these straw bales are a fire fleshlight hazard,
but they can't even sustain themselves during a screen lock.

Hello there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?

I'm kinda paranoid about losing everything I've worked hard on.
Any suggestions?

Look into my web blog ... advokatska kancelarija

Here I will relate my first fleshlight big spiritual
awakening and because at the end of rnd 7 closed. For fleshlight individual users, it has questionable benefits
that simple observation will tell you, that's a very wide web. But for some, its success carries with it risks of damaging the alpine spirit, as nature campaigners say trails across the country.
