Engine No.9

still sick and a little drowzy and my accuracy is still bumpy.
I went to a meeting which is very important and it has something to do about the magazine we will be launching next year, and we are speeding up all the process for a time of marketing this coming G2con in Megamall, and its great to part of the team, and im happy that all of our ideas will be used so i invited my friends from the Artists' Den to be part of this great Dream i have.

Been bugging me this stuff 2 nights ago, and i feel hurt that time and thanks for that beer i got at home, which makes me super sick again. I'm glad that i have friends here and for the nth time i found out that im not alone.

career career....geez..this stuff always comes to mind, and lately my mind is full of ideas and i didnt know where it come from, maybe my mind triggers when something bad happens to me, well its great to be back again in full shape, bigger, badder and so aggressive especiall when it comes to this kind of activities. -events

next year it will be the best convention you'll ever experience as me and my team will put more blood on this convention and im glad that this baby convention i organized 4 years ago is back again. and for the real deal, the main people behind the 1st convention recognized me as one of the best people around to handle this kind of activity.

Im glad that the wolves arent back, coz they are the one who nailed me down to the grounds, but lucky me i stay alive and always fighting for it.

FPJ is now dead and in heavens, Panday is one of my favorite character when I was a kid, and for me Panday is my hero, i like those bad guys like zombies, monsters, ninjas wielded with swords and Panday one guy who has this magical sword from the gods to fight evil in the face of the Earth, maybe that time I was a big fan of He-Man. coz I like swords hehehehe

Xmas time is coming and i dont feel the breeze of xmas, i'm weird and i dont know why.. last year i felt the xmas atmosphere. because someone shared it with me, and im happy for that, spending xmas time 30 min. before 12midnight. its fun and a little unforgettable. but the rest of that is history..and i want to forget it.

well..i still have 1 week to re-organize my self and find this Xmas spirit...maybe on monday when i meet Lace..im glad that she's ok and fully recovered. and now im excited to see her.

Walastik Lastikman


The event was jam packed with comic fans and comic superstars, its fun to see all these people in one event especially in a comicbook launching.
Me and Ryan Orosco went there a little late and just in the nick of time to hear Zach Yonzon's speech about the Support Filipino Comics Program, he said that surf the website www.mangocomics.com/ilovecomics for full info on the program.

After the event small talks and speech from the comic writer/artist of the new age comics of Lastikman - Gerry Alanguilan and Arnold Arre. Edgar Tadeo wasn't present as Zach says Ed enjoys so much in U.K.,


The event ended in a one on one comic signing and meet the artist.



people from the Alamat ML, Komikero, Artists' Den and Star Wars Phil. was there to support the launch of Mango Comics' LASTIKMAN.

posted in ALAMAT ML

Fantastic Lastik Comic Book
Why on earth would anyone want to get Mango Comics
latest publication: MARS RAVELO’S LASTIKMAN?

Well, for only P150, which is the price you’d pay for
a regular 22-page super-X-whatever-bat-book, you get a
complete prestige formatish 56-page full color slam
bang extravaganza!!!

Are you a fan of Gerry Alanguilan’s stories? Then you
better get this book! Because if you want a dark,
dramatic, blood and guts Wasted type story, then you
better go get an extra copy of WASTED (still available
in selected secret branches here and there).

But if you’re a fan of Gerry’s CREST HUT BUTT SHOP,
then consider this CREST HUT’s elastic spastic cousin.
Yup, all the crazy, zany, wacko slice of superhero
life (including chickens) have been crammed into the
panels of this 56-page book.

It’s a slam bang bang kerplang action packed story.
Well, it’s more like slam bang bang HAHAHHA kapow
kablam CRY CRY kablooey action packed type of story.

Another reason you should check out this book is the
AAA! The Arnold Arre Art! Yup, Arnold’s back in
fighting book. Last time we saw his work was AFTER
EDEN and Arnold’s back with elastic vengeance (I’m
sorry, I really don’t know what that means I just felt
like I has to use the word elastic again.)

Anyway, Arnold really puts Lastikman through the paces
and stretches him in every possible way. (Check out
Lastiksquid!) As usual, Arnold jams the pages and
panels with all sorts of comical details which
definitely require a second and third reading to get
all the visual jokes. (Let’s see if you can quickly
spot the James Tailoring Shop… hehehe!)

And deserving of a second and third look is very sexy
and very stretchable Atomika. Wow! All I can say is…
WOW! (Well, there’s more to be said about this
badbadgirl but let’s just stick to WOW for the
moment.) Or how about… all I can say is WHOA! MAN!
What a Woman! (Ok! Ok! I should’ve stopped with just
saying WOW…)

You want more reasons to get a copy of MARS RAVELO’S
LASTIKMAN? Well, do you like color? Yup, color! You
like colorful stuff? Well, then you get color, bye
golly, thanks to Edgar Tadeo (ably assisted by the
randy Ryan Orosco), who brought Arnold’s art to full
Technicolor life-- great work on the pages that show
the hostage situation on the TV screen.

You still want another reason to get this book? Well,
it’s only P150! For P150 you usually get… oh… wait … I
already talked about that.

So, there.

Go.

Get it.

Get MARS RAVELO’S LASTIKMAN!

Now!

Ice Cream and Lollypoppy


Az and Lace Adventures continues..

last saturday was a busy and fun day-night for the two of us as we marathon our way going to DLSU-to my place-the venue and back.

We enjoyed the event during the whole day as I stock up my stomach lots of food from the Tabemono Fest and listen to the rock music at the Animo Rockathon - which was the unofficial name of the event, but it was the main plan for the title, but the DLSU groumates of Lace used the "Ultimate BANDing Experience" title, which is not too cool for me...so i changed it to "Animo Rockathon:Ultimate Band Experience".. some people mis read it as Ultimate BADing Experience..eaahahah..


during the end of the week, Lace told me the origin of her name.and she said that the name Lace came from the American Gladiator character muscle girl named Lace aka Marisa Pare.

Eat like a japanese
one of my favorite food is the Japanese food, the taste and smell of the food really works and fuel my soul, every time i can hear the word 'japanese', my mind is starting to think of Food..and not all anime.
Juujiro Organization Inc. pulled a successful cultural awareness like the Tabemono Festival: Japanese Food Festival, these people should get more support for conducting a cool cultural exchange event and they promised next year that the event they are organizing will be bringing the japanese culture,tradition, festivities here in our country. A very big deal of event organizing... but its fun.

I've been to some japanese festival here in Manila, and that was way back 5 years ago in Manila Japanese School in Paranaque, but i no longer heard any news about their next fest.


Liida cooking demo

The Tabemono Festival begins with the cooking demo of each members and then after the cooking a taste test was given to all audience, and i love this part...eating.....each guest is given a one set of bento box for free, eat all you can ahhhaha. but save the comments later and start filling those hungry stomach by homemade japanese grub.


Ramen eating contest, Lico ramen monster

after that, Extreme Ramen Eating Contest, Lico Reloj joins the contest and won 3 times, and beats Beige of 7Thursday during the final round as they won a tie in round 2. Onigiri (rice ball) was the coolest food, those japanese rice in a triangle shape filled with apple cubes and meat... during the audience participation, Lico volunteered and made a GODZILLA Onigiri.

people went there to see the recipe exchange and learn the basic way to cook japanese food. The most awaited event was the On the spot Japanese cooking contest, which me and my team - Beige of 7Thursday and Neil of Rotschreck won the 1st place in the cooking contest beating Master Chef Lico, AJ-zone and X other members of 7Thursday band.

we won the contest as I got the right taste of the Beef Misono..which is not too salty and the beef cooked in medium rare..cool..part...I
impressed my honey Lace in my style of cooking ehheh.

Animo Rockers!
fast break in Megamall, me and Lace dropped by at the Megamall Foodcourt to rest and let her to have some ice cream which is one her favorite, and after that we rushed our way going to Malate for the Animo Rockathon.


Luna and Aids...We Kick Ass For the Lord

we already felt tired when we got there in Indo's Bar and my concerns for the band is to have a nice play and go home after they performed. first shot was We Kick Ass For the Lord, Luna and Aids rocked playing astig guitar riffs a "take me out" by Franz Ferdinand and some original songs.


Rotshreck..high jrocking atmosphere
Rotshreck jrocking mode slams the evening with heavy guitars of Dire en Grey as they were supported and cheered by some of their jrock fans,


then the Purplechcikens still rules my night . I missed their gigs and im glad that i saw them live again..and thanks to them for having a live act for this charity event. sad part is that the 7Thursday and Late Isabel didnt performed coz one of their members are sick...but its okay their continued support for charity and music never fades.

it was a great night...sweet night..and loving night for the two of us..
i dont want to wake up again..if this is a dream..
but im thankful...that it is real..

Theater play and comics
this is the result if we merge some comics and theater plays, thanks and congratulations to Nautilus comics for the success of thei comic launching of Issue 3 last week in Powerbooks Greenbelt. and thanks for the goodie bag set of CAST and SIGLO.

CAST comics is a teen series story of a boy and his classmates.friends highschool adventure, from entering the audition for the King Arthur play to the rehearsal and falling in love. i havent read the 3rd issue coz i havent finished reading the 2nd issue, but all i can say that each issue shares a moral lesson to the reader and gives idea bit by bit about theater play, im glad that i have this coz im planning to direct a theater play next year and this comics serves as my reference before i enter that theater art workshop.

It was like a Artists' Den meet up that night, Jaclyn Lim, Jonas Diego, Ariel Atienza, Ludz Sacramento, Elbert Or chit chat night for all of us, discussing same topics and new ideas for the coming term. and it will be great contribution for the nation for having this kind of Art stuff.
