Episode 61: 2019 Recap

Episode 61: 2019 Recap


It's been a long year for us at keepsakes., and I've decided to cap off the podcast for 2019 with our 2019 highlights. Looking forward already to more discussions in 2020 - maybe we can start talking to cosplayers on Cosplay Week 2019, I guess?
We're going off-tangent with our usual podcast schedule to bring this recording from our Facebook Live at Dungeon Akiba in Mandaluyong City. I do admit that the sound was bad, but at best you take your sweet time listening to our conversation as we talk about Cosplay in Zamboanga City with our guest Scar Faeder. Our 2019 Recap podcast will be coming this Monday December 16 at 9am.
Gary Montejo, Chey Adamson and Serena of The Lily Cat join me in a wild discussion about ARCHcon 2019. We are recording this hour-long episode from Monster Grill in Cebu City.
We have a double event feature on this episode as we talk about Coslandia 2019 and the Melody Road Anime Feature.
Episode 57: #iBlog15

Episode 57: #iBlog15


The Philippine Blogging Summit (iBlog) is perhaps the only reason why I go to UP Diliman, and with that ending on its 15th run, I may need to find another reason to do so. I have Mike Abundo (Fintech Philippines Association) and JC Cuneta with me as we remember the lessons and keepsakes that iBlog has given to us.
I moderated a Cosplay panel at Cosmic Con 2019 last October 19, 2019 at Ayala Malls South Park in Muntinlupa City. The panel includes Raven of, the ever-active cosplayer Jayson Tabuzo and Cosmic Con 2019's international guest Hanabi all the way from Vietnam.  This is Episode 56, the full recording of the panel discussion on "Cosplay and its Effects." Thank you for listening.
A few days ago I asked Facebook to Recommend me local cosplayers that you want me to follow. This in turn led me to do a podcast based on this thread. I am very much eager to share my experiences with most of the recommended cosplayers, so here's to 30 minutes or so of describing most of them one by one.  I also have a few announcements with this episode so kindly stay listening until the end.
On another lengthy but insightful episode, I got Chad Ramos and Allen Silva of The Reimaru Files with me to discuss Paid Photoshoots in Cosplay Events, its concerns & possible long-term effects and possible solutions and approaches to it. Spend your 1 and a half hour with us as we get to yet another cosplay community issue worthy of analyzing.
 Hi guys! We're back with another podcast - this time, it's about the latest Makoto Shinkai movie "Weathering with You." Also, I gave hints about keepsakes 2.0 in this episode. I made sure that this will go on for 30 minutes or so - we've had longer talking times in the past few episodes. :)
This episode features Cosplay Tanabata 7 - the last of its namesake in Baguio City...let's call this as my guide to Baguio, just in case there's a cosplay event coming up (there's one next month) and you're coming from either Manila or somewhere else.
