Do We Need More Rock Venues? With Wessui Bacareza of Cosmic Kid

Do We Need More Rock Venues? With Wessui Bacareza of Cosmic Kid

So whenever I get the chance, I like to speak to people in the band scene. Someone currently experiencing gigs and playing. When Wessui Bacareza of Cosmic Kid reached out to me, it was a good opportunity to get the temperature of the current gig scene, especially when it comes to punk. It was fun sharing stories with Wes and comparing what it was like during my time in the band and his time in Cosmic Kid.

How to Price Your Art with Wyndelle Remonde

How to Price Your Art with Wyndelle Remonde

That’s where I first encountered the work of Wyndelle Remonde. I noticed the symbol of a carabao in various places around Cebu. I didn’t know what it was at first, but somewhere along the way, I found his Instagram handle and noticed the symbol there. I enjoyed his work and gave him a follow. When I caught him for the interview he had just done a Vinyl on Vinyl Gallery show in Manila.

From Free Haircuts in Colon to TUF with Willow Hoods

From Free Haircuts in Colon to TUF with Willow Hoods

To my eyes, Willow Hoods is the genesis of a new type of haircut in Cebu. He didn’t discover it, but he found out about it, noticed that no one was offering that kind of style, and decided to bring that look to Cebu. The Fade Haircut found its way into the every day lives of Cebuanos. It’s not often that someone is able to make a mark through a haircut. With that in mind, I wanted to talk to him and finally meet him for the first time.

Running Away from Cops for Street Art with Bart Bros.

Running Away from Cops for Street Art with Bart Bros.

This is where the Bart Bros come in. Fortunately, they sat down and explained the culture and history of Cebu street art. Composed of brothers Bart and Yummy, Bart Bros started by sharing their wild imaginations in the streets of Cebu, and have since been invited by various art galleries to exhibit their work. Their works are often seen as brutally painless and darkly cheerful with a tinge lowbrow humor.

When Did Zerothreetwo Become Profitable, Podcasts in the Philippine Business Landscape, and Supporting the Cebu Creative Scene from Abroad with Carlo Villarica (AMA)

When Did Zerothreetwo Become Profitable, Podcasts in the Philippine Business Landscape, and Supporting the Cebu Creative Scene from Abroad with Carlo Villarica (AMA)

I realized that the Ask Me Anything (AMA) episodes are really fun to do. Some of the questions forced me to think deeply and look back at our own history. This particular episode reminded me of how far Zerothreetwo has come, our early beginnings, and how we’ve hustled our way to what we are now. We’re still not at the final stage of Zerothreetwo, maybe we’ll never even reach there, but it’s been one heckuva ride so far.

Inside the World of Spoken Word and Rap Battles with JP Arias and Raj Jumao-as

Inside the World of Spoken Word and Rap Battles with JP Arias and Raj Jumao-as

Fortunately, I had a chance to meet JP Arias. One day, we received a message on the Zerothreetwo Facebook page. He was asking if we were interested in sponsoring merchandise for a budding spoken word and rap artist. Here’s a little secret – we are very willing to sponsor merchandise to people doing creative interesting things. A quick Google search of JP Arias showed his involvement in the rap scene as well as spoken word. One year later, he’s showed up in a rap battle, tons of gigs doing spoken word, started a spoken word poetry group called Kasikas, and performed in the recent Bisaya Music Festival. He’s been busy!

Ask Me Anything

Ask Me Anything

My name is Carlo Villarica, the host of Zerothreetwo Conversations. A few months ago, I posted on social media that I wanted to host an Ask Me Anything (AMA) episode on the podcast. There were a couple of questions asked, and it turned out to be really fun! If you want to give it a listen, here’s a link. Based on the download numbers, it seems like people were interested.

So I want to do another one.

Ask me anything! 🙂

It’s Your Birthday before eventually falling into Mandaue Nights.
