Getting Back on Philippine Wresting Fandom

02/26/2017 11:55:49 AM

Before I put on my short take on PWR Bagong Yugto for The SlickMaster's Files, let me give you a brief look back on getting back to the local wrestling scene.

It was barely seventeen months ago (or rather eighteen, since it's already late February when I wrote this shit) since the last time I have seen a Manila-based wrestling show. It took place at Makati Cinema Square where around 400 people spent an evening witnessing the matches of the first PWR Wrevolution X, with Jake De Leon and Bombay Suarez slugging it out for the inaugural PWR Championship match. 

The senyorito had won it, but one of their former wrestlers wrecked the party and become the champion; and a quite unfortunate path for then-backstage developments that screwed the promotion for some time during the following year.

PlayBack: Apartel – Inner Play (LP)

02/19/2017 05:54:24 PM

Apartel may appear to be just another THE Ely Buendia-starred project since his post-Eraserheads era wherein names like The Mongols, Pupil, and The Oktaves had been ringing bells for already one-and-a-half decade and spawned multiple hits with only one resonating sound as similar to the famed 90s band – that is alternative rock.

However, this is not just another case of his experiment as the six-piece band (formerly eight) isn't just your ordinary soul music-makers. They are a super band already by numbers and prowess; and their debut album will prove you that.

Valentine's Day Na! E Ano Ngayon? (v. 2017)

02/13/2017 09:36:02 PM

Sa wakas! Ito na naman ang pinakahihintay ninyong ng mga tao (tao rin ako pero huwag niyo nga 'kong idamay please!); mula sa mga taong tuwid ang landas (at mga atat nang tumuwad) hanggang sa mga taong lumiko na (at sa mga biglang liliko pa lang). Single ka man, taken o it's complicated pa. Sa mga forever in a relationship with food at sa mga happily taken for granted at ganun na rin sa mga taong feeling heartbroken kasi nagloloko ang internet connection. 

Ang valentine's day, bow.
