Movies, Music and Travel. These are three things that I am really passionate about. When I am not traveling, I would go to the cinema to escape from reality for a while. When I am on a long trip, I listen to music to still be inspired on my idle time. These three are related in one way or another.
I am happy to announce that I have an ongoing collaboration with a new platform called VIBBIDI! It’s a free web-based music streaming service that’s available on any device that has an internet connection. I’ve been using it for a month now and it is just fun to rediscover some of the albums that I loved in the past and to find new materials from emerging artists.
The thing that I love about Vibbidi is the feature called ‘Narratives’. In this section, music lovers share how a specific album means to them and how they can relate to the artists. As I publish this post, I’ve written the following:
“I’d love to be considered one of the quintessential British men who hasn’t given up, has seen the world and is strong, healthy with plenty of fire left in him. Maybe after reading my story, you might agree.”
– Excerpts from Matt Goss: More Than You Know
When I arrived home from the 6-hour bus trip from Baguio to Manila, my mind is already programmed to take a deep sleep once I reunite with my bed. I was quite surprised when I saw a big envelope in my bed. One of the books I purchased in eBay arrived. I am still on a high after reading Geri Halliwell’s If Only. Time to read a man’s perspective!
Getting to know Matt Goss through his music
I smiled upon seeing the hardcopy of Matt Goss: More Than You Know. It is the autobiography of ex-Bros lead singer Matt Goss. He may not be popular here in the Philippines, but I believe that once upon a time, he made a lot of teenage girls (and gays) worldwide scream for more.
Yesterday, I received a text message from a friend informing me about Michael Jacksonâ€™s death. I originally thought it was a hoax not until I went online and read the post from Showbiz Gossips that indeed, the King of Pop passed away. Itâ€™s no gossip. Itâ€™s a fact that really made the whole world sad.
With a father working as a disc jockey and a mom who is a graceful dancer, I grew up listening to the songs of Madonna, Janet and of course, Michael Jackson. Please let me share to you how Michael Jackson’s songs inspired and influenced me as a kid.
