I know I left things hanging, especially about the christening of the name of my new Spanish guitar. I got an unbelievable number of responses from readers, many of them with great suggestions fitting for a new soul companion like a guitar. I liked some, like Luna, Joyce (for Joyce, my favorite Brazillian artist), and many others but I may settle for something that elicits a less noble or aesthetic purpose but still muse-like. Or just something that plainly amuses. I will call my new guitar ‘Oreo’ for its striking resemblance to the cookie, if you will.
Let’s see how that plays out the next few days. Kung di bumagay, I will review the names again.
A few days back, I went to Mio’s school to see the seniors’ art exhibit. For senior year here in Aus, it seems everyone must present some body of work for exhibition before year’s end. I was quite glad I went since I felt Mio had presented something quite interesting, and got a really high grade for it.
His art involves making stencils and he imprints them on old vinyl records, and it is quite unique. I don’t want to sound like a doting father which I know am, but his works which he has been giving to classmates, selling, or just keeping at home are really wonderful stuff. Was so amazed to see them. He also makes designs that he imprints on running shoes, bags and other fabrics.
Lastly, I published yesterday my first photo book on Lulu.com. It’s a compilation of my exhibited pictures under the A.W.E. collection plus a few more. I am waiting for the first copy to be shipped to me. If it turns out beautiful, then I will release it for public appreciation and will put more info.
In less than two weeks since its launch, the new tribute album to APO dubbed Kami NAPO Muna Ulit has just turned gold!! While I still don’t have my official copy, I am quite pleased with the mp4 files sent to me. Some of the music is quite interesting. I love Tuloy ang Ikot ng Mundo, Siyotang pa-class, Love is for Singing, and some others. Try to get the double album, the one with the new versions and the APO originals. I guarantee you an interesting listening adventure!
