8th Toy Con 2009 impact at day zero

I was at the ingress and set up of the event, and I just felt a very good vibes and positive energy for toycon 2009. Im very happy on its turn out even that the main event will happen after 12 hours and the joys of hobby and collecting turns us 5 friends to organize the biggest pop culture convention in the Philippines, we like to call it the toys-comics-anime-cosplay-movie convention, but its hard to stitch all of it, thats why we label it as the pop culture grand daddy of all convention in the Philippines, the event is on its 8 years, I think its the longest and biggest convention organized and I'm glad that my contribution 7 years ago evolved and I see that the event is having a big success due to its big collaboration with all the people in the industry.

the event became successful, thanks to the internet, and now for this year.. I like to promote the collaboration and camaraderie of all people involved in the community and industry of pop culture. I think this blog features pop culture things, and Toy Con is part of it even the first time I joined the event.

whew,, im so excited.. hope to see everyone.
feel free to visit me at the tech booth. I'll be there the whole day :)
a meet n greet at the tech booth ahhahaha.

Pinoy PopCast is the Philippine’s podcast for bloggers, where anything under the sun can be discussed. PPC is a way of making the bloggers speak, and not just write.
I was luckily invited for the 2nd episode of the said podcast, together with the following:
Jonel Uy of Digital Manila
Carl Valenzona of The Beautiful Times
Ed Arevalo of Music Picks
Mica of Micamyx
and hosted by:
Pocholo Gonzales of CreatiVoices Productions and VoiceMaster
Azrael Coladilla of Azrael’s Merryland

The episode has a guest Radio DJ as well, and she is Angel of DWLL Mellow 94.7 FM. So If you like this podcast, which will be released in a few hours, don’t forget to listen to Office Radio, Mondays thru Fridays, 10AM - 2PM!

This episode tackled the latest Pinoy Pop Culture news by Azrael, followed by the latest blog entries of Carl. Jonel (Sago) discussed his recent travel experience, and promoted the 1st year celebration of his LetsGoSago.net blog. Then Ed promoted the upcoming events, which includes the Pussycat Dolls Doll Domination: Live In Manila.

On the commentary part, everyone got the chance to speak out about Making Money Online in everyone’s own words from each’s experience.
And for the episodes highlight, I, The Singing Blogger, and Mica get the chance to perform the song Careless Whisper on live stream! Finally, we were able to perform the song on the same room! Haha!

The podcast was then concluded with invitations for upcoming events and current promos.
We would like to thank our sponsor, Red Ribbon for the 100% Beef Salisbury Steak and Cookies and Cream Cake. They’re both undeniably delicious indeed.
And of course I would like to thank Pinoy PopCast for letting me express my thoughts and sing on the said episode.

PLAYBOY Philippines’ June 2009 issue goes Green!


PLAYBOY GOES GREEN

Doing their part for the environment, PLAYBOY Philippines’ June issue goes all out with articles, features and pictorials all devoted to Mother Earth. January 2009’s half-German Playmate MIA GRAY shows her support for PETA as their latest celebrity endorser and PLAYBOY Philippines’ latest cover girl.

Like other PLAYBOY models who have appeared in PETA's racy ads, Gray isn't shy about speaking out for what she believes in. "There's nothing glamorous or sexy about wearing the skins of animals who were beaten, anally or vaginally electrocuted, suffocated, strangled, or skinned alive. From an ethical standpoint, fur is just plain ugly—and so are (the) people who wear it. I'd definitely rather pose naked for PLAYBOY than wear a fur for a so-called fashion magazine."

Philanthropist GINA LOPEZ sits down with Managing Editor Mikhail Lecaros for 20QUESTIONS and shares her thoughts on advocacies, social responsibility and media’s role in shaping the world as we know it. Also in the issue, PLAYBOY takes a look at some of the FILIPINO ECO-WARRIORS doing their bit for nature on conservation’s frontlines while GREENPEACE IN THE NEW MEDIA explores how the international organization has adapted to operate and spread its message in the digital age. PLAYBOY also goes into the head of a PETA activist to see just what it takes to take ones clothes off for a cause, and explores the benefits, practicality and implications of GOING VEGAN.

June’s PLAYMATE OF THE MONTH AYA MONTEZ goes au naturel for a truly memorable pictorial shot on location in beautiful Ilocos, and as a special bonus, the issue includes a special on the many international models and celebrities who have posed for PETA over the years, from YASMIEN KURDI and ALICIA MAYER to IMOGEN BAILEY and SOPHIE MONK. Rounding off the issue is an eye-opening interview with international bestselling author of Fight Club and Choke, Chuck Pahlaniuk.
LETTER FROM THE EDITOR

Go Planet

It’s not uncommon knowledge that the propensity of people to listen is inversely proportionate to the level that someone’s talking down to them. Let’s face it, from overbearing employers to the clumsily delivered morals found in glorified toy commercials (cartoons) nobody likes being preached to. We at Playboy have oft been accused of having our own issues with authority or alternative points of view, but nothing could be farther from the truth: We’re always more than willing to listen, entertain or discuss any and all ideas or opinions that have a modicum of thought behind them, are presented well, and most importantly, neither hurt or take advantage of anyone.

On that note, the idea behind putting the spotlight on conservation this month was made not in haste, but with the intention to avoid the usual litanies on recycling and preservation that can be found just about anywhere else. It is our honor to have the topic covered by those who have made it their lives’ work, those eminently more qualified to speak about it.

Clichéd as it sounds, we’ve only got one Earth. It’s about time we started acting like it.

bloggers commentary

We finally got our 1st episode on air, and it's a special episode launching and we are ON AIR! oh I mean..we are live online, I did a ustream.tv video stream of our podcast show and too bad that my webcam didn't worked properly,so we went live with around 50 unique listeners online and streaming the audio only.

We got great guests and featuring our blogger friends. My segment got edited out due to some bloopers, but everyone went live and raw, I discussed some movies like Angels and Demons and Terminator Salvation, it was quite controversial discussion, and with the bloopers thing, I requested to edit out my segment hahhahaa.

The episode features lots of report about event, awareness and advocacy. Just like the MTV EXIT event, Unicef, Dodgeball tournament, and many more. Omar announced some cool promos that can be found online and during this recording we got bad news report about this Con Ass. I'm not aware of it and not too familiar on what's going on, i'm sorry for being so out of place when it comes to politics, but because of my friends here are very aware of it, I just learned from them on what's really happening outside my geeky hub.

We will be having some guests on the next episode, and hope that we can have sponsors like for the food *ehem pizzas...pizzas. aahahaha.
