This Week: Rocked Age, Flickr is Going To Manila, and More Cosplay

Went to the ROCKED AGE: Images of Loud Music Exhibit last Thursday at the Metropolitan Museum. I made my write-up over here, but didn’t do a critique of the show itself. What do I think? Maybe because I was spoiled in college to lots of modern and conceptual art, that its difficult for me to get into anything else but that. And thats what I THINK.

LOTD: Club Dredd is Back, Crowe’s Singles Review, etc.

Links of the day:

  • Legendary local rock joint Club Dredd is back, and its a 3-minute walk from the office, second floor of Gweilo’s Eastwood. Was never at the original, nor the relocated Club Dredd. But, come to think of it, free gigs are always happening here in Eastwood City anyway, I’d probably only go on nights with a good band line-up.
  • Caught Cameron Crowe’s grunge-rock tribute movie Singles on HBO the other day, and I swear, I was wishing I could see the same movie half an hour before it aired on TV. A very personal review here.
  • Chinese food ‘made from cardboard’. Ugh. Pork baozi was my favorite morning street snack back in Shanghai. Almost the same size as Kowloon House siopao, filled with ginger-y pork bola-bola style, soaking in hot broth inside the bun, and for the equivalent of 6 pesos each.

I havent run through the entire FAQ from the Nana Philippines site, but since I did manage to get a free pass, I’m excited anyway. All I know is this was a J-rock-slash-cosplay event, and it looks very promising as an event shoot. But even before I got it the venue last Saturday, I was given this designation: official photographer for the international cosplay competition. Uhm, right. Good thing I know what cosplay meant.

I joke, I kid 🙂

Been There: The Taste Asia Blogger Food Fest

I have kept my distance from the blogger scene, the meetups, and anything else that would remind me that I should have probably considered getting into this possible revenue-stream source, since I’ve been keeping web journals for about 6 years already, blah blah blah, but the promise of free food got me.

So, I was at the Taste Asia Blogger Food Fest last night, at the SM Mall of Asia, where 100++ bloggers converged, and were fed generously by SM Hypermart’s Taste Asia.
