Walrus Music Video (She’s Only Sixteen)

It was an early New Year’s Eve party for us at She’s Only Sixteen’s Walrus video shoot held last December 19-20, 2013. It was also my first time to be part of a music video shoot, it was really fun (not to mention technical and stuff, which I liked as well)! It made me realize I want to direct a music video someday. Hehe. Someday. 🙂

Building – BP Valenzuela

Today’s soundtrack.

You run away every time I get a little bit close.
You run at the notion of being anywhere with anyone who gives a fuck.

My Love is Building a Building
e.e. cummings

my love is building a building
around you,a frail slippery
house,a strong fragile house
(beginning at the singular beginning

of your smile)a skillful uncouth
prison,a precise clumsy
prison(building thatandthis into Thus,
Around the reckless magic of your mouth)

my love is building a magic,a discrete
tower of magic and(as i guess)

when Farmer Death(whom fairies hate)shall

crumble the mouth-flower fleet
He'll not my tower,
                       laborious, casual

where the surrounding smiles
	                       hangs

	                                  breathless

He was the one who first gave me a taste of unexplainable hurt. Who made me cry seconds after we simply said ‘hi.’ He taught me how to love and care and hurt and cry.

And yet I still try.

(I’m waiting for life to teach me how much of a mistake all of this is. But for now, here I go.)

But don’t fall in love with me. Please don’t fall in love with me.

Because maybe, just maybe, 2014 is going to be a great year for local music.

10 WISHES FOR MUSIC THIS 2014 THAT I WANNA SHARE
by Rez Toledo (originally published/posted on his Facebook account)

1. It’s 2014, guys. Please don’t push that 90s sounding stuff all over again. I think after a decade or so, it gets a little boring. Taste and rakista arguments aside, let’s all try to be progressive! Why not?

2. For the creators and listeners alike to be daring. Together! Dare to be fresh and new. Dare to be passionate. Dare to discover. And rediscover. I believe somewhere along the way, you lost your sense of genius. You just have to remember where you can find it.

A Fundraising Concert that was All for Love

(originally published on WhenInManila.com: http://www.wheninmanila.com/a-fundraising-concert-that-was-all-for-love/)

by Mina Deocareza

It was the 6th of December, the night for All for Love: Pagbangon Gikan sa Dilubyo, a fundraising concertfor the benefit of typhoon Yolanda victims.

Route 196’s sign was not that big but that night, the letters and numbers on it screamed.  Their impact was even intensified by the redness and whiteness of its font, standing out against the black background that almost merged with the blackness of the night sky. Below it, there was another sign containing the names of the performers for the night: Johnoy Danao, Mike Shimamoto, She’s Only Sixteen and more.
