Art is everywhere


Nemo Aguila is one of the newest groundbreaking artists on the scene. What sets him apart, though, is that he is a 26-year-old multidisciplinary artist. Yes, multi. Not only is he a visual artist who does paintings, street art, drawings, and illustrations; he is also a toy designer. He is having an exciting exhibit on the 19th of December in the Pocket Universe Art Collective in Saguijo Café + Bar called “Out of Order.” He took time out from his busy schedule to answer a few questions for me.

On being Geneva Cruz

Geneva Cruz

Like everyone who grew up in the ’90s, I had heard of Smokey Mountain. When I first moved back to the Philippines in 1992, we used to sing “Anak ng Pasig.” As the years wore on, I would see former Smokey Mountain member Geneva Cruz on TV or at different music events.

It’s a good night to get Busted


There are some characters in this colorful music scene of ours who have been under the radar. Allrock, a.k.a. Carlo Torres (yes, Allrock is technically his real name backwards), is one such character.

More than RED-I


There are many kinds of music out there—rock, hip-hop, electronic, classical, jazz, blues, country—and I have been lucky enough to have been exposed to all these different kinds of music.

Renegade art, guerrilla artist


Remember those days long ago when movie posters were done by hand by artists and people who barely knew how to paint? Did you ever wonder who made those band posters and album covers? Have you ever designed a poster for a gig—one that would perhaps end up on someone’s bedroom wall someday?

The day the music died


There was an uproar over the past few days on whether or not OPM (original Pinoy music) still exists. Those in and out of the music scene (myself included) ranted on about how stupid and preposterous this was; and of course we would, as we would know better than most the state of the music industry in this country.

The hair bondage of Buboy


Many people love their hair. I do, too. I’m quite proud of the hair I have, it’s fine and thick. But, like everyone else, I’ve had my share of crap hair—haircuts, coloring, perms that have made me cry, hair that looks perfect when you leave the salon but inevitably ends in heartbreak an hour later.

Meet Modulogeek, aka Joon Guillen


A few months back, I had the fantastic fortune of being on Facebook when a friend of mine said that there was a gig happening that night in Saguijo for Numberline records. I have been and I am a fan of Outerhope, as I had the privilege of hanging and having gigs with them in Singapore three years prior. The cosmos collided and I ended up with a free CD with most of the Numberline artists on it. (There are still CDs, if I’m not mistaken, with different covers from different visual artists from around the Philippines. For more info and to download some of their superb tracks, go here: http://numberlinerecords.com/)
