We’re supposed to watch them today but…
We’re absolutely gutted to have to tell you that we have to cancel the following shows: Urbanscapes Festival, Clockenflap festival, Bangkok, Manila and Taipei. We never cancel shows and normally we would struggle through any illness to play for you guys but unfortunately Alex is suffering from an acute form of laryngitis. We tried to give him as long as possible to rest his voice but it’s clear that there is no way that he will be able to sing for the next week at least.
We’re honestly so disappointed that we will be cancelling our long overdue trip to Asia but we need Alex to be able to sing for us to give you the performance you deserve.
This is heartbreaking especially we’ve already bought tickets and we’re really expecting them ever since last year 🙁
Get well soon, Alex! I hope this reaches you.
I’ve been wrecking havoc on Twitter since I missed #1DDay because I needed to be home in the province for a birthday. LIKE WHAT THE HELL?! I need my 1D fix. Good thing they have their new album out. Yay, airplane music <3
UPDATE: Their releasing #1DDay miniseries — good way of curating that content, 1D community managers!
This is my favorite from Midnight Memories, which I got through iTunes with the use of my trusty Globe Gcash Amex! It’s just so easy to use it – for apps, music, virtually anything. And because you can stuff it cash from any BPI account, it just makes it easier. Let alone, if you’re shopping on iTunes, you can have it directly debited to your Globe postpaid. Isn’t it lovely.
Diana. I’d change my name to Diana if it means I have a 1D song after me. It’s like when Beiber’s One Less Lonely Girl all over again BUT better — that girl has a name! Forgive me also for comparing to Beiber because the vocals and the music is way, way superb, of course. 1D is kind of shaping up to be a more mature boy band, but retaining their young kid inside, and that growing teenage angst – we’ve been there. Understandable.
My top choices from their latest album are…
Story of my Life
You and I
Does He Know?
What are yours? I’d love to exchange (fanboy) thoughts with you 🙂
In their new album, One Direction seems to be moving towards a more mature path. With the release of Story of My Life a few days ago, and the official video (above), from lyrics to musical treatment, to translation to a music video, to even the styling — all seems mature. Frankly, when did you see Niall sport that hair?
On a more fanboy-ish note, I just can’t believe they went this way. I love the wild, childish-ish (yes, double ish), and love crazy themes the first two albums had, but this one is refreshing – a more restrained and controlled version of the boys. This particular song, Story of My Life, has a particular folk treatment that it quickly reminds one of when Mumford and Sons released Babel. Gospel-ish, lots of strings, more organic, less synth. Less paty. More and more heart. One Direction is all ready to step up.
I cannot wait to listen to the whole album! Nov. 25 will be a special day, indeed for all Directioners around the world. Until then, we feast our hearts on Story of My Life.
Pre-order Midnight Memories here! Sorry I just had to :3
P.S. MORE AND MORE PROPS TO THE STYLING CREW. THE BOYS ARE EVER SO DAPPER! #ICAPSLOCKMOPARAINTENSE
I’ve been the longest closet Directioner you’ll ever meet.
Proudly bought through GCASH American Express Virtual Card!
And it’s time to come out!!! C’mon boys, give me my last first kiss! :*
Have you watched their movie already? I’ve watched it twice already, and I can’t wait for the DVD. Maybe watching one more time. CAN’T HELP IT OKAY. I’ve hidden it all these years.
Judge me all you want hahahahahahaha
Pop music fanatics are in for another world-class music experience as Canadian singer-songwriter and the artist behind the hit song “Call Me Maybe” Carly Rae Jepsen visits Manila for a one-night concert at the Araneta Coliseum on August 7, 2013.
Born November 21, 1985, Carly Rae Jepsen placed third in Canadian Idol Season 5. Shortly after competing on Canadian Idol, she independently released her debut album Tug of War in 2008. Three years later, she released a new single titled “Call Me Maybe” which became the first song by a Canadian artist to reach the top of the digital chart since Justin Bieber’s “Baby” in January 2010. The song also peaked at number one on the Canadian Hot 100, making Jepsen the fourth Canadian artist to do so. Jepsen was also the first Canadian Idol contestant to enter the UK charts when “Call Me Maybe” debuted at number one.
In 2012, Jepsen released her second album “Kiss” and performed her song “This Kiss” on The Ellen DeGeneres Show in September that year. Jepsen has been catapulted to become a global phenomenon not only in the music industry but also in social media. Her official Facebook fanpage now has over 7.5 million likes. She is also one of the most-followed musical artists on Twitter with close to 8 million followers.

Social Media has a knack of infiltrating all sorts of activities and now there’s a way to make it easier to directly upload photo booth pictures to Twitter! No need to go through the whole process of copying photos from memory cards, resizing, and whatnots.
Look at these photos from the MTV Video Music Awards (VMAs) at Japan! The technology is called Twitter Mirror and it takes a couple of seconds to pose, take a shot, and upload it to Twitter, mention and hashtag included! I work in social media, and this may help community managers when we cover events. This can get your bases covered easily while making sure that you reach the most important people attending the event.
Pose, click, tweet. I’m a fan of this process, really.
It’s our independence day in no time, and what better month to appreciate local artists, right? Introducing NDFY.me, a collective of music aficionados promoting the Philippine local indie scene through the world wide web.
Our usual spiel: NDFY.me, more than a website, is a movement. Apart from providing independent OPM artists a portal to share and sell their music, we will also offer them lessons on how to professionalize their recording, for example, mentorship programs with established independent OPM artists to guide them in their career, plus other technological tools that will support them in their career. – NDFY.me
I share their passion and belief in the local artist industry, but what interests me is their system. The aim of NDFY.me is for independent OPM artists to go local first, as the primary target market of the website are Filipinos, NDFY said in the website. It may be not completely free and a commercial platform, but it is with cause. We believe that, before an artist can conquer the world stage, support from fellow Filipinos should already be established, in order to make their penetration and status consistent in the international scene.
And as they launch their website in a two-stage concert called MaharLikha at B-Side this June 11, everyone’s invited to join them as we all celebrate Philippine independence and independent Filipino music. P200 gets you to see and hear 24 artists with a free beer to boot!
At the onset of our idea generation, we’ve always wanted this to be a cultural movement to spark another deluge of OPM artists, similar to what we experienced during the 90’s. And being a movement, I wanted a name that connotes a dynamic process. I wanted a brand name that sounds like, and can be used as a verb.
Go forth, indiefy. And support LOCAL!
