June 2015: 4th week



TOTW-June

 

Hello again, children of the corn!

I hope you’ve all been doing fine, cause I haven’t. Emotionally that is – but never mind that. I’ve got enough work to distract myself from the blackhole that is having too much feelings.

One cause for celebration is cause I am back, yet again, to overshare about the things that went on over the tail end of June 2015.

Here are my last two weeks in photos!

Where In The World is Guam? (Guam 2015: Day 1)

Prior to this trip, I really had no idea



GuamDayOne

~*~ Guam ~*~

It’s time to get real. When I hear the word “Guam” – the first thing that comes to mind is a mental GIF of my favorite childhood movie, Matilda.

 

At the very end, Mrs. Wormwood tells Matilda that they’re moving to Guam to escape the federal agents that were coming after their fraudulent car dealing business. I’ve watched Matilda about 254 times on VHS so I know it by heart – but every single time that scene comes on, I would wonder – Where IS Guam????

 

Sidenote: This trip has been sponsored by the Guam Visitors Bureau, and our accommodation by Pacific Star Resort & Spa. We are eternally grateful for the invitation and the kindness!

Feature: Gist Mag & Candy May 2015

Excuse the iPhone photos



Ueno Park Jump

See, I don’t think I’ve ever posted any photos from my most recent trip to Japan just this December – Jan 2015. It was a stellar trip, and I promise to fill you in (as in, promise na talaga!). For now though, here’s an overly saturated photo of myself from that trip. Here I am, playing at a closed public park in Ueno. Check out my randoseru (classic Japanese backpack for school children), man.

I’m Sorry But I’m Back (!!!)

I swear I didn't realize it's been four months



Sorry

 

 

The Big Void – Dec 2014 to April 2015

So you were probably feeling a bit betrayed. Or maybe blindsided. You probably got bored and you’ve moved on to shiner blogs, which I think would be the case for 95% of my remaining readers. Or maybe you are totally new to this website and you don’t have any idea what I’m talking about.

Allow me to explain

 

LIFE HAPPENED

Sure, it’s an old excuse, but I SWEAR it did. The latter part of 2014 got so incredibly busy (especially music-wise, but I promise I have a lot to show for) and I honestly didn’t feel the need to write about the stuff that’s been happening to me, at length. It was also a great excuse to be lazy, and to have one more responsibility off my back (hehe sorry).

 

BLOGGING ISSUES

You’ve heard me go on, and on about my thoughts on blogging and not a lot has changed since then. But I’ve worked on a simpler layout with one of my best friends (shout out to Sev who coded e v e r y t h i n g ) because I still want to keep this website as a mini show and tell of my work and the stuff that I feel is worthy of sharing. I’m not even trying to go back to this blogging train to be a legitimate blogger - or whatever the heck that term now means these days. I’m mainly doing this for myself, for people who have remained interested in the work that I do. Also for you, should you decide to stick around!

 

MICRO-BLOGGING HAS TAKEN OVER ME

It’s SO easy to just succumb to micro-blogging these days because it’s quick and nearly effortless. I can even do it while walking around a mall, as long as my lousy 3G connection cooperates. Here are some links where I’ve been active these days, more or less.

1. Instagram – because doh, who isn’t? Instagram is great, and this is where I promote everything in my life right now. Gigs, workshops, photoshoot BTS, travel photos (including my recent Dec – Jan 2015 Japan trip) etc. It’s all in there.  @reeseypeasy

2. Twitter – I LOVE Twitter. It’s perfect for the insults and commentaries I keep hearing in my head. Perfect for self-promotion, self-shaming, basically self-everything. This is where I post my not-so-daily haikus, which I also eventually turn in to haiku zines. More on that later.

3. Facebook Page – a.k.a. my personal music page, wherein I share all my music-y things like new songs, gigs, photos, and stuff. I’ve been doing a lot of solo gigs lately, but I’ve employed the help of my good friends (Josh Villena of Autotelic on guitar, and April Hernandez of The Sun Manager on percs / drums) so every gig would be twice as fun. The extra instruments make my sound fuller, too!

If you follow me on these sites, then I bet that you haven’t missed that much. But if you don’t, I’m about to fill you in. Legitimately fill you in. Ready for the barrage of pictures? Let’s do it.
