I follow Ebe Dancel on both his Twitter and Instagram accounts and his former band Sugarfree helped me to appreciate Filipino music even more. As I listen to their musicality over the years, I can say that this band was an expert when it comes to melancholy and sad songs, deep diving into your heart with gloomy lyrics. But I don’t know with you, I enjoy them even more.
Nostalgia is a powerful feeling because it triggers different emotions and memories. It can make us smile or make us sad. It can also make us wonder about the “what-ifs” and “what-might-have-beens”.
This is the reason why plenty of Asian movies bank on this trigger factor to make box office hits. Combine it with cute high school romance and you’ll have one entertaining movie that is guaranteed of commercial success.
These Asian romance movies might come from different countries of different culture but all of them reflect the pop culture during the viewer’s younger days making the characters relatable. [Read more…]
Sharing ghost stories with your friends is a nice past time and bonding experience. You form a circle, ala-Are you Afraid of the Dark, and tell real life stories about the monsters and ghosts you’ve heard. As your friends tell their horror stories, your vivid imagination kicks and you feel frightened. You will then be afraid to go to the restroom on your own and do not even want to go home alone.

In the ’90s, we didn’t have One Direction, 5 Seconds of Summer or The Vamps. But we had our share of boybands who make our hearts flatter even today. There were those who sing and dance, and then those who tout an instrument in hand. Such is the case ofThe Moffatts, who pretty much ruled my childhood up to my early teens.
The Canadian band consisted of four brother who had been performing together since they were six years old. With the eldest Scott on guitar and the triplets Clint, Bob, and Dave on bass, drums and keyboards, respectively, they serenaded us from the late ’90s to the early ’00s. From Girl of My Dreams to I’ll Be There for You to Misery, these songs were the anthem of our teen years.
But just like everyone who loved them (and still loves them!), they grew up and started wanting to try new things, which sadly involves leaving the band. Unfortunately, the eargasmic Submodalities was their last album and also their last tour.
Here’s a little trip down memory lane. Because who knows, we might be seeing them again soon. *crosses fingers* [Read more…]
