2ND Annual Toys and Collectibles Christmas Fair production note 5






here's a sample music clip
live acoustic performance by Brian Josef this Saturday at 3pm.
at the International Christmas Fair 2007 and 2nd Toys and Collectibles Christmas Fair.
event will be on Megatrade Hall 3, stage area.

Songwriter-singer Brian Josef is a fresh whiff of air. He is fun and unpredictable. His narrative is both frank and playful. He captures the vibe of the generation that celebrates individuality perfectly. He mimics life in the city through his sounds and stories, and expresses his own uniqueness with his music. Brian fuses elements from various musical styles and recording technology to create the overall effect of his music. He is forward-looking yet grounded on the traditions of excellent musicianship. The result, a perfect blend that is sophisticated and exciting. It is a whole new sound that is crazy but incredible.

He believes that there is no bad or good in music. For artists like himself, the music is a way to express one's self and that honesty makes any form of music resistant to criticism.

This philosophy must have taken its roots from his childhood. "When I listen to a song, my parents did not comment on whether the song was good or not. If I like what I heard, I ask them for the title. They were only happy to oblige," he says.

Yet this philosophy feeds on his desire to insist on distinguishing good music from the truly beautiful ones. And it has encouraged him to improve his craft further.

Crazy but Incredible is a two-feat achievement for the young artist, first as an excellent song writer and musician who can whip up interesting stories and concoct riveting imagery against the rollercoaster twists and turns of his melodies. Words and music of all 12 songs in the album are by Brian. Second as a compelling singer blessed with a distinct singing voice that convincingly delivers the songs with an alternative and pop flair.

Another thing of note is the exquisite production of the album. All tracks were recorded with live instrumentation by a distinguished group of musicians. It's slick, tight, and rearing to soar.

Crazy But Incredible , Brian's carrier single, which is also the title of his debut album released under Sony BMG Music Entertainment is a perfect preface to the album and the artist.
For more information on BRIAN JOSEF, please don't hesitate to contact the undersigned.

THE 10TH ASIAN CARTOON EXHIBIT 2008 in SM Mall of Asia

Gilbert Monsanto’s Hellsword preview

no mouse

I'm having a hard time this morning, because I found out that my optical mouse is dead and now doing some programming stuff for the website work slows me down, plus my hand aches using a different mouse. the favorite mouse that Im using is from Cdrking, its a gray-black mouse kinda like a Genius mouse, my other favorite mouse is an artists mouse just purchased it last year in TCA and it got a nice look and the mouse was built for graphic artists. I can't get a new artist mouse because it cost P900 and i can't find a new stock here in Manila and I dont know where it is available.

going back to the CDrking mouse, I like it alot because of its shape, it relaxes my hand and it doesnt give any wrist burn or aches. i got two of these bought it, i think 5 months ago, and the 1st one died last night, while the other mouse is have a defect on the left click, sometimes give me a rough action when layouting stuff and editing.

Im thinking to buy it again in CDRking later, might buy a new mouse for my laptop, because im so excited to install this artists search for the glass house graphics website and it gives me a lot of trouble already when using the old mouse with a left click defect.

the cdrking mouse costs at around P200 hahahaha, so its a buy and throw it away later item, and sometimes it has bad lifespace, probably if I buy one it might die again after 5 months.

hmm, i'll try to get two mouse just incase it stays dead again, or buy another mouse with a good quality brand just for a change.

ok til the next blog update.

2ND Annual Toys and Collectibles Christmas Fair production note 4

Here's another quick production note update for the Xmas toycon event. Just visited the 1st day and opening of the International Christmas Fair in Megatrade Hall 2-3 and I just saw the setup and venue for the 2nd toys and collectibles christmas fair. the event will be located in the Megatrade Hall 2. I took some pics here to show you where the event will be held.

2nd toys and collectibles xmas fair - day zero photos part 1


here's some added inputs for the event. There will be a toyshow feat. Transformers by Transformers Philippines, GI JOE toys by Toy Soldiers 1:18, Customized action figure toy show by Action Figure Philippines and Zoids toys by Zoids Philippines. Its a big toy show for all, you can play the toys, touch them, hold them, talk to the owners, interact with the fans, but you can't take it home with you. My effective style of promoting toys and having an interaction with the owners and fans. I just don't like the toys to be put inside a display glass cabinet, because these are toys and we must play with it. thats a great idea that I made last time for the Transformers movie merchandise launch and the GI JOE 25th anniversary event.

also Yuri Timg and Noli Coronado will be there for the Dig Deep Entertainment talent search, they will be opening up a talent search for hobby painters, illustrators and sculptures for their company in making statues and action figures for clients like Diamond Select, Marvel Comics and etc. The people from Glass House Graphics will be there exhibiting some print artworks of their artists and also will be there to do a talent search and portfolio review for people who wants to work with Glass House Graphics and break in to the international comics industry, just like what others do, show your portfolio, do some samples and if the client likes it you'll get a job from various international comic company like Tokyo Pop, Marvel, DC, Image and other independent comics company world wide.

Im so excited for this 3 day event and it will be more on pure selling. No other programs, contests or mishi mashi stuff. its a grand bazaar for the toy-comics-anime-movies pop culture this holiday season.

will make another update next for the Christmas Cosplay show and the ingress on Thursday

MMDA Chairman Bayani Fernando aka "BF" and Marikina Mayor Maria Lourdes Fernando had transformed the city of Marikina into a Cybertroninan attraction. Transformers sculptures and robotic metal sculpture were exhibited in the area of Marikina Riverpark up to the Riverbank place. Hundreds of people brought their kids to see a one of a kind attraction featuring the Transformers, movie characters, cartoons and comic icons like Superman, Batman, Fantastic Four, Spider-man, Lastikman and Resident Evil.

The attraction is free for everyone to view and also you can watch your favorite blockbuster film for free. The exhibit is an annual competition of each of the baranggay in Marikina.

The Dark Knight - HD version trailer



here is the HD version of the trailer, I guess its a goodbye for the bootleg trailer version and fan made trailers.

the Joker is one scary character, a different Joker that we know and its like he's been possessed by Pinhead of Hellraiser. Killing is his game and he enjoys it. The first time I saw his face on the bootleg trailer is so very disturbing. He's like a bogeyman that a child will fear every night time.
We just saw a less scene for the Batman. The movie is focused on the Joker more than the Batman. maybe a 2nd trailer will come out showing more Bat scenes and cool vehicles and gadgets. We just saw the batcycle and a repeated scene where he rushed forward to the Joker. It reminds me of the fist movie of The Batman starring Jack Nicholson and Michael Keaton, when the Batman attacked the Joker on the ground with a Batwing and then was gun down by the Joker's super size Smith n Wesson.
