Madhouse

Posting this quickly just to let everyone know that Chad and I have been featured in Madhouse Manila magazine’s November issue. Chad wants to become a photojournalist so we began working on his dream just a few months ago. We’ve been working hard and we’re very happy to see our efforts starting to pay off.

Chad wrote an article titled ‘Thank You for the Music Internet’, an interesting piece about the state of today’s music. I’m the one wearing the Union Jack shirt. You might remember me ranting about this shoot in this post. Fortunately, we were able to do damage control. 😛

Chad’s photos of his friend, Kimmie Fehr, also made it in the magazine’s November issue. Don’t they look amazing?

You can read the whole article and feature in Madhouse Manila magazine’s website here. Also, it’s Chad’s birthday today. It would be wonderful if you guys could check out his website here and share it to your friends and social networking sites. Thank you so much! 🙂

Oblivion

Growing up in a home with no internet access, I only got to know music through local radio and TV stations and for a time I thought the songs those channels featured were the only music genres that existed. I got stuck with ‘mainstream’ music until college, and would easily get bored with it. I remember complaining that ‘popular’ songs always have the same themes—love, money, sex, and drugs.

I was in desperate need of a new sound that has more depth, but I unfortunately didn’t have the means. A few years after college, however, I was introduced to other genres of music through Chad. He’s an audiophile and has been listening to different kinds of music since he was young. I got to know trip-hop, ska, electronic, indie, trance, etc. My current favorite is dream pop, a sub-genre of pop rock and alternative rock, which originated in the United Kingdom.

Dream pop tends to focus on textures and moods rather than propulsive rock riffs. Vocals are generally breathy or sung in a near-whisper, and lyrics are often introspective or existential in nature. (source) You see, music is not just limited to the proverbial LMSD.

Hype this look on lookbook and chictopia!

LOL I look preggers in this pic, but I’m not. Haha. Must be because of the movement. So, I’m leaving you with my favorite dream pop artist Grimes. She’s a bit weird but amusing at the same time. Hope you like it!
