3rd Arts and Music Festival production note 8

dont be surprised why im making a blog update at 11:30AM and why Im not there at the festival.
i hate to explain things about the drama and sell it out, just enjoy my photos and take a deep breath for the day 1 coverage of the feast of the mind and senses.

im very disappointed in my digital camera, the audio is mute when I record videos. and there all videos has no sound!! damn!! just recorded some cool live acts, comic workshop and some tv interviews.. im starting to hate my camera, i nearly broke it awhile ago. my head is hurting.
so ease the pain, im having my own arts and music festival at home.

I arrived in the nick of time they were doing the ribbon cutting, and the 1st capture of my camera is the rock king ahahah, Joey Pepe Smith.

3rd Arts and Music Festival production note 7

Here's a quick update before I take a bath and go to the festival.

The Legacy of Alfredo Alcala comic art exhibit will be there at the exhibit hall at the 3rd Arts and Music Festival. I just got a thought to text Alfredo jr. and informed him about the event and if he will exhibit there, but then he told me that no invited him for the event. yikes!! I just realized that I forgot to re-update the organizers about the change of cellphone numbers, then after we talked I told him to contact immediately the organizers. And yesterday Im happy to receive the news that he made it on time for the festival, tnx to Jay and Joan of Backdoor ventures.

The 1st place winner of ToyCon's battle of the tribute band releases demo album

Ducklings Jumping Art Kids band will release their demo album "Cacophony" at the festival
priced at P20 only !!!!! yes! pure original songs for you, especially to those who like
anime, cosplay and attending conventions.

here are the line up of the song in the demo album
-megaphone mom
-kawawa naman ako
-superduper song

and last update

Fine Arts meets Cosplay.

This is one big experiment for the Saturday Group as this Saturday at 10:30AM, Malang Santos and the rest of the group will have a painting session and paint cosplayers as their models.
This is one big art cross over, as the organizer explained what cosplay is to Malang, he got the shot and interest to paint them. Cool di ba?!

For now Im still looking for 3 cosplay model volunteers, if you are interested pls message me or txt me at 09275340309. Im not yet sure if RG got some models, but its best to message me if you like it and besides the model takes home the paintings.

i'll update you again later! time to take a hot shower! its cold here in Cavite.
Lace is sick today :( and i wish her to be better.
