Been quite a busy man as of late and I’ve had this wonderful opportunity to just put it out there when they come.
Been catching a lot of great shows at Fringe Manila (#FringeMNL) and I have been writing mini-reviews on my Instagram (@wanggo) to help speed up the process because I’m usually shuttling from one place to the next trying to catch as many shows as I can.
Here’s a list of shows I’ve seen and what I thought about them and some shows I still want to make sure I don’t miss:
I got to see Manhid last night and while I will write a separate review on it next week, let me give you a spoiler now: I did not like it at all.
I also wrote about my predictions for the upcoming Academy Awards and I’m no expert at the Academy but this is how I think it’s going to turn out:
And then, of course, I had to do a review of 50 Shades of Grey because it was the only movie that was showing that week and so I had no choice but to review it. And my friends wanted to watch it as well. Spoiler alert: I hated it.
And then, earlier this month, I got to write for the Manila Bulletin — Panorama magazine. It’s my first time to write for that publication and I have now officially written for the three top broadsheets in the country — The Philippine Daily Inquirer, The Philippine Star, and Manila Bulletin — and I guess that must be a feat of some sort.
They asked me to write about emerging artists to watch out for in 2015 and I told them I wasn’t that much an expert on the visual arts but I am very much inclined to write about live performances and live artists and they said, “Sure!” So I went and did the article and talked about the art that I do like and what I know to be the ones that we should be watching out for.
