I’m supposed to be working on my SoKor journal before it bites the dust and forever be a remnant of my undocumented memories but I can’t bring myself to. I’ve been bitten by the Friday Night Syndrome and all I wanna do is to laze around and wait for precious time to trickle.

On a positive note, I am thinking of going to YIF’s Your Silence is the Villain Single + MV Launching at Autonomy Bar tonight.


It’s been a while since I’ve been to a bar, drinking my way through good music and interesting conversations. In an alternate universe I would have been a musician. A place where my guitar playing skills is not limited to strumming ‘When You Say Nothing At All’ and ‘Leaving on a Jet Plane’, my singing does not sound like a wailing cat, my stage presence and charm is not obscenely annoying or bordering on the boring, and my height does not require too much microphone stand adjustment.

Oh, yeah. I would have been a great musician in that alternate universe.

But I’m not. And the least I could do is to surround myself with people who are, indeed, good musicians in their own rights. If you have some free time to kill, drop by the gig. If you happen to spot me in the crowd, come on over and say hi. Maybe we can talk about something interesting other than the weather.

Your Not-So-Imaginary Pledge

One of my favorite local indie bands, Your Imaginary Friends, is cooking up a second EP. I can still remember the time when I went to their first EP launching (One Dreamy Indeterminate Hum) two years ago at the Ayala Museum. Man, it was one hell of a night! After that, their songs have been a staple in my playlist — perfect for pre-sleep moments, brief bus travels to work, and a kick-giver when you’re bored at work.

So yeah, I am very much excited to hear something new from them again. Can’t wait to hear the studio version of Your Silence is a Villain. 🙂

The 2nd EP is set to be released this December. The band is currently collecting pledges until October 25. You can check out the details here. Every pledge amount has something special waiting for the pledger.

What are you waiting for? Turn in your pledges now! 🙂
