a coffee mug back when i was a kid —- got it from my Lolo Juan - I actually asked for this :)
Sometimes you need to move if it not fits anymore.
A night of acoustic… guitar strums are like lullabies to me and I felt like a baby being sent to sleep…
Ely Buendia’s Solocoustic at Hard Rock Café last February 22 was a first, and seeing him on his guitar performing his hits really proved that he is worth to be coined as one of OPM’s Rock Icon.
The show was front-acted by three gorgeous and talented guitar artists collectively known as Triple Fret.
The girl’s renditions of Bohemian Rhapsody and Hotel California were splendid and so soothing to set the mood for an all-acoustic night.
Ely’s set was composed of almost twenty-six songs from Eraserheads, Mongol, Pupil, and Oktaves, some covers, mash-ups and take note of some granted requests.
His acoustic rendition of 20/20 was one of my favorite and just made me awed aside the fact that it’s my first time to hear the acoustic version but also he just did it well and it sounds like a whole band is playing the song.
The whole show was great and worth, though we felt that we still want more, we realized that it’s kind hard to play more than twenty songs with only few gaps. Acoustic rendition of ‘20/20’, ‘Nasan ka?’, ‘Hard to Believe’, ‘Bulakbol’, ‘Paru-Parong Ningning’ and my all-time favorite ‘Ligaya’ were the songs I remember the most.
The night just proved one thing that my so-called “GuitarMan” never fails to make me smile.
a Christmas gift —- will the bee be busy this year? I know some busy Bee :)
A month before Christmas until 10 days before it were ROCKing days for me —- from ILike concert last November 24 until Rock Loqal last December 15.
The ILike Concert in Quezon Memorial Circle was the second gig that night and unfortunately my only gig because I missed the first one which was Oktaves mall show in Starmall-Alabang.
It was the longest night for us (we actually made it long) since it was Luvimin’s last gig before flying to Middle East for work.
After bonding on the grounds of QC Memorial Circle, we ended the night (or day) singing our heart out.
Then before the Yuletide season eats my time I gave my sister a chance to watch Rock Rizal at UPLB where Gary Granada, Lolita Carbon, Ebe Dancel, Sandwich and Oktaves performed. I was really awed by Ms. Lolita Carbon’s performance since she’s one of the reasons why I love Pinoy Rock Music.
Then few days after another rock event graced my 2012, the last gig for us – Rock Loqal, an indoor rock event with more than 30 bands.
Though I missed the first three hours of the event it was still worth it after watching bands that really rock my world and not to mention the good shots of my so-called GuitarMan.
It was a twelve or more hours of bonding with fellow Laguna Girls, from a ROCKing night up to a pool-side bonding because most of them don’t know how to swim.
It was really a fun-filled year to remember ♥
This is the bracelet given & lost —— I put a button as lock but unfortunately I still lost it. Maybe I lost the bracelet but definitely not the FRIENDSHIP shared ♥
A comment on a post in a group page in Facebook made me think. Actually, I was pissed and about to comment back with my rant after reading that a certain member will rather download the song for free which means by using software grabbing songs illicitly. He was bashed by other members and later on commented that it was just a joke. The post is about music website where you can legally download songs. Every song from the website is only worth twenty-five to thirty-five bucks which can be paid by mobile load, credit card and other legal means. I think we should be thankful that now we can download one song from a twelve-track album. If you will recall or read how people listen to music before then you will be grateful then. ——- I was born in the 80s where people used to hear music via cassette player with cassette tape that you have to listen entirely on one side enable to listen to the tracks on the other side. Songs were played sequentially then unless your cassette player does have a feature of selecting songs. Then CD or compact disc and CD player came, which reigned so long until now actually. With this technology, listening to music is easy; you can listen to it sequentially or randomly. And then MP3 players boomed out with new file format of music, songs were comfortably being listened with a small stick where you can store songs from CDs you bought. And now, there are websites letting us download music legally and individually without the hassle of waiting to have it available on the nearest music stores and buying a whole CD that’s worth PhP 285.00–500.00. So I ask myself why there are still people patronizing illegally uploaded songs and having it download on their music players. Music industry is doing their best to cater each of us in our most convenient way and as listeners we should bring them back the fruit of their genius and selfless minds.
