Cyrus: tongue and cheek
Cyrus: tongue and cheek

LOS ANGELES, California  (The Adobo Chronicles® ) – Previously, we reported that Miley Cyrus has said that the biblical account of Noah’s Ark is nothing but a fairy tale. Cyrus was quoted saying, “That’s f*cking insane. We’ve outgrown that fairy tale, like we’ve outgrown f*cking Santa and the tooth fairy.”

Now, the controversial singer who recently announced that she was ‘pansexual’  wants the entire Halloween holiday scrapped.

“Halloween is the mother of all fairy tales,” she said, “giving children and adults alike false hopes that they can transform into Cinderella , Spiderman or Batman.”

“Celebrating Halloween only perpetuates  more myths like Dracula and zombies.  It’s getting out of control and it is not good for American society.  We need to start living the truth ” Cyrus declared.

Cyrus made these comments as she was preparing to record her new Christmas album titled ” Rudolf, the Red-nosed Reindeer.”  It will be released October 31. That’s Halloween night.


imageSAN FRANCISCO, California (The Adobo Chronicles) – LGBT pride and street celebrations are a diminishing breed in the gayest city in the world, San Francisco.

It’s been half a decade since the City of San Francisco decided to crack down on Halloween in the Castro and shut down this street festival that started in 1940.

The annual Pink Party on the eve of Pride Parade, is not going to happen in 2015 because the organizers of the event, the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, have decided against  holding it  beginning this year. San Francisco City Hall is mulling sponsoring the event but it will be more like a political campaign rally for those who will be running for public office.

Next on the chopping block is the Castro Street Fair which is held annually on the first Sunday in October.

The biggest LGBT event, the Pride Parade will happen for the last time this year.  It will also be cancelled beginning in 2016.

That leaves the Folsom Street Fair the only, sort-of-LGBT street festival which usually happens on the last Sunday in September.

Beginning next year, however, the Folsom Street Fair will  be free of commercial sponsorships, like the Pink Party.  There will only be one non-profit sponsor which will  subsidize the popular event — the Catholic Archdiocese of San Francisco, under the leadership of Archbishop Salvatore Cordileone.

So expect nudity to be a thing of the past at the Folsom Street Fair. However, there will still be a lot of people being tied up, whipped, spanked, caned and humiliated. Cordileone said that these practices are consistent with biblical accounts of Jesus Christ during the march to Mount Calvary prior to His crucifixion.

If you have procrastinated about attending the Pride Parade, Castro Street Fair and Folsom Street Fair in its original form, this is the year to do it.




imageManila, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles) – Filipinos woke up this morning to the exciting news that President NoyNoy Aquino has signed an executive order declaring Monday, October 31 a special non-working holiday.

The news was carried by The Inquirer, the country’s leading daily newspaper.

The executive order was signed by Aquino’s Executive Secretary Pacquito Ochoa, Jr., who said that the President wanted to give Filipinos an extra day off to honor their dearly departed.  November 1, All Saints’ Day, is when Filipinos troop to cemeteries to pay respect to the dead.

But wait, isn’t October 31 a Friday?

Indeed it is. Apparently, The Inquirer mistakenly printed a news story from its 2011 issue.  October 31, 2011, was a Monday.

Aquino felt so bad about the newspaper’s goof that he went ahead and declared Monday, November 3 a special non-working holiday.

Have a great long weekend!
