New Year’s Sound



Aloha! I know, I know, I haven’t updated this blog yet. But here I am now, making an impromptu “blog” without really thinking of a nice topic to talk about. I have lame excuses like “I’m busy with work” or “The holidays took my time” or the classic “Tinatamad ako” but of course, I still want to write something here from time to time.

Well, maybe I’m giving more attention to the other blog these days. The photo above is a screenshot of my first mixtape for 2015 and I’m more than glad to share lovely music that I discovered last year. Allow me to brag that this particular mixtape for Manillenials gained a good number for reposts and retweets. Not only those people who likes music but the legit and thriving OPM musicians/artists of today.

I featured a lot of hip and urban Filipino sounds, earning a title of The New Sound of OPM. I totally enjoyed hunting new OPM songs and listened to more than 100 songs in a day. I didn’t feel any exhaustion because they’re all good for my ears.Some songs were already part of my playlist, but I need to listen to them again to justify my goal of sharing the best possible sounds of our new local musicians. I can’t seem to get enough of it, actually.

For continuous listening, I created an 8tracks playlist so you won’t need to click on the play button again and again.

Anyway, let me share some of my top favorites on the playlist:

1. Oh, Flamingo โ€“ June

2. Peryodiko โ€“ Kung Alam Mo Lang (Feat. Buddy Zabala x Morse)

3. Flying Ipis โ€“ Lundagin Mo Beybi

4. The Strange Creatures โ€“ I Feel Like Iโ€™m On Drugs

5. Lustbass โ€“ XXX

6. Jireh Calo โ€“ Stay

7. Kate Torralba – Drunk on Your Love

8. Kala โ€“ Libot

9. Wilderness โ€“ Pasaway

10. Chocolate Grass โ€“ Testify

11. Mic Manalo โ€“ Halika

12. Tandems ’91 – At Last

Happy listening! โค

P.S. I’ll update my movie archive by the end of January.

That Thing Called Tadhana Fever

I miss you, blog! Na-miss ko rin ‘yong mga nagti-tiyagang magbasa ng blog na ‘to. I have been so busy with work, some hanging out thingy, and movies! Sa sobrang pagka-busy ko, nalimutan ko rin mag-update ng monthly movie list ko. Hamo, kumpleto na ‘yan pagkatapos ng November.

Recently, napanood ko ‘yong That Thing Called Tadhana, isa sa mga entries ng Cinema One Originals 2014. Ten days na ‘kong hindi nakaka-move on sa movie. Kung napanood mo na ‘yong Before Sunrise/Sunset/Midnight ni Richard Linklater, ganoon ang istilo ng pelikula.

Sa sobrang nagandahan ako sa pelikula, dalawang beses ko s’ya pinanood. Kung may commercial run ito (sabi meron daw soon), maglulustay ulit ako ng pera. Minsan lang ako maging ganito. Hahaha!

Marami rin akong first time na na-experience sa film na ‘to.

Nagpalit ako ng profile picture sa Facebook. Ginamit ko ulit ‘yong litrato ko sa BenCab museum sa Baguio bilang isa ‘yan sa mga settings ng pelikula. Pinalitan ko rin ‘yong cover photo para kumpleto na at ginamit ko ‘yong pamosong opening line ng Tadhana.

At etong dalawang status na ‘to ang patunay na tinamaan ako ng husto sa Tadhana:

That Thing Called Tadhana

That Thing Called Tadhana FB Status 1

That Thing Called Tadhana FB Status 2

Isa lang naman ‘yan sa mga pinagka-abalahan ko noong mga nakaraang linggo. ๐Ÿ™‚

Tungkol nga pala sa commercial run ng Tadhana, panoorin ‘nyo ‘to kung may free time kayo. Maki-usyoso sa kanilang Facebook pageย para sa mga update. Better yet, update ‘yo selves with Cinema One Originals 2014, baka kasi may mga commericial run ‘yong mga ibang entries.

Suporta lokal! ๐Ÿ™‚

Sometimes, First Times Are the Best

I don’t know have any proper introduction on this but to let you know, it’s about some informal first time events in my work-bahay routine.

1. You know what’s the best thing about being part of a blog site (hasย more than 1k Facebook Likes. Hehe) and has its own domain and hosting? You get an invitation for advanced movie screening! Yes dear readers (kung meron man), the other blog where I contribute my formal musings already received two advanced movie screening/mini event.

First, it was Barber’s Tales. However, we were not able to attend ’cause it’s located in QC and most of us (we’re 11 writers in that blog) are working in Makati and the event was 3PM. I was so eager to attend because the plot is promising and Eugene Domingo won a Best Actress in Tokyo International Film Festival. Oh well, tapos na ‘yun.

Second invite was from Futurentertainment Inc. It was the advanced screening of Russian horror film Viy: Spirit of Evil. We immediately said yes to the invitation since itย will be held in Greenbelt Cinema. Ilang tumbling at kembot lang andun na kami.

Jane and I attended the event since we’re the only ones who were eager to see it. Sino kami para humindi sa ganitong invite? Anyway, when we were there, we felt intimidated since it seems the other bloggers and media writers are all veterans to this kind of shit and they already know each other! Para kaming others talaga dun though we had a small talk with one of the bloggers naman. Buti na lang talaga, dalawa kaming nagpunta.

We’re a bit hesitant if we will bring our own food. We thought that they won’t serve any, but of course mali kami ng inisip. There was a mini buffet from Sumo Sam and we enjoyed the food. ๐Ÿ˜€ Plus, they also served popcorn and sodas during the movie.

My most favorite part was when we discovered that the given envelope to us containing the press kit had a GC from Sumo Sam worth P1000!

From then on, Jane and I promised to attend these gatherings if our schedules will permit us. Free movie and free food and other perks are the best!

2. Watching a film with someone you just met that day? Yes! I’ve done that last night. This friend of mine (2nd time namin ulit magsama/magkita since summer) tagged along this lady he just met that day too! I don’t want to put so much details regarding this ’cause I didn’t ask their permission. I just want to tell you, guys, that I enjoyed their company talking about heartbreaks, the movie, some dating shit, a little bit of Philippine law, and others. I didn’t feel any awkward moments with the lady. I think she’s awesome and intelligent. ๐Ÿ™‚

3. It was my first time to watch a mind-fucking foreign movie in big screen! I’ve seen other mind fucking movies like Fight Club, Inception, and Irreversible but just on my desktop/laptop. While watching, I can’t stop thinking about what will happen on the characters or if this one will have a solid ending. This one is worth spending your money with. I’m hooked.

Have you seen Gone Girl starring Ben Affleck and Rosamund Pike? Go, check it out. Hahaha. I seriously recommend this one.
