Thank You for the Music

MUSIC.

You hear it. You don’t see or touch it. It’s everywhere. Lingering. Blissful. Inspiring.

But it can also be heart-breaking.

I have numerous encounters with music. It was something I learned next to talking. It helped me through bad times and gave me company during triumphant ones. It made me forget the sad realities of life. But it also reminded me of bitter-sweet memories.

MUSIC.

You let me write my life story. You gave me the opportunity to make myself vulnerable for others to see. I relish every moment of madness I experience in your hands. You’re something I always clung into…

MUSIC.

In times  like this, take time to save me. Salvage me from my propensity to self-indulgence and destruction. Once again, guide me with your harmony and words. Touch my inner soul. Pull me up and urge me never to return. Just like the ground — make me stand still.

Until I sing with you again…

Look, I’m on TV – HOSTING!

I’ve always thought it’s not possible for an ordinary nurse, like me, to be seen in national television. But because of series of events, which started to take place last year, I think mass media can also become one of the most promising undertakings for any registered nurse.

It all began when I first appeared for two episodes of one of the known morning drama shows in GMA Philippines, entitled “MAYNILA”. When I was still playing with my band my self-composed original vocal melody compositions (together with my bandmates’ collective musical arrangement) which were turned into songs, two of those original song compositions were aired and played in two individual program episodes. And if I’m not mistaken, they were played sometime in March of this year.

After the said musical endeavor, the realms of television and mass communication had been very friendly and accommodating to me. And the next thing I knew, I was already a regular co-host for a business portal cable show called, “What’s Up Doc, by Dr. John Cenica”. I can still remember how I ended up being one of the program’s hosts…

The topic we tackled in the most recent episode I’ve hosted in, with Dr. Cenica of “What’s Up Doc?”, was all about BEAUTY QUEEN SECRETS. Here are some of the photos we had that day:

Playing camerawoman. Will I pass being one? Lol.

Dr. Cenica thought I’d like to do this show with him mainly because I’ve once become a “beauty queen” (In my own rights!) myself, being the grand winner of the 2011 Rachell Allen Image Model Search. In this photo, I was LITERALLY blown away by Ms. Island Philippines’ beautiful face, height, and glamorous gait!

And since we’re talking about television hosting… Aside from personality, good facial “register” on television, and good command of English (or any type of lingua franca or vernacular language inherent to the country he lives in) – what do you think an aspiring host needs in order to succeed?

Actually, I made a list of some of the easiest tips that worked for me. Please feel free to check them out and comment on them. :)

Tell me about your thoughts on these things.

Is There Such Thing as DISADVANTAGES in Rock Music?

Sure there is. And in my years of experience, I can attest to such proposition. In fact, I was able to come up with the topmost five shortcomings any rock musician performing alongside with a band may, in a way or another, encounter.

Why am I so sure? This is because I’ve seen how these five ruined my past endeavors. They even did the same to others hehehe…

Oh, before I forget… I would like to tell everyone that I also write for another blog, other than those I created here in wordpress. It’s in blogger. For now that I still don’t have the capacity to provide for a self-hosted site, I treat such blogger site as my current and official repository of my original articles and works.

Now back to business…

If you’d like to check out some insights about rock music and how some bands won’t just work out, you may click here, NOW. :)

For musicians, how true can these be? I’d love to hear your thoughts! :)

A Simple Guide on How to Dance in a Club – SUPER FUN!

I’m never a fan of dancing clubs or bars. The only time I go to a bar is when I am scheduled to perform either solo or with my band. Technically, I don’t dance either. But I drink, of course. I drink lots of lukewarm water, which waiters/waitresses find odd whenever I order for one. Hahaha!

But dancing in a club is not a bad idea after all, right? It could be a good  way of releasing inhibitions and relieving stress. Might as well give it a try one of these days. :)

Anyway, I found this hilarious video about some club dance moves one would typically find in a bar scene or event. Personally, I find them very fascinating. I never thought they can be assigned with different names.

For those of you who frequent clubs or bars, are all these true? Could the dance moves be so precise after all? Either way, I am very much willing to give them a try and see what particular dance move/s would work for me. Lol.

This is a great way to start my “day” even though I just woke up just two hours ago…

Hope you have a wonderful day ahead. ♥
