My first drink was in a bar called Moondogs, a Baileys on ice, but let’s start from the beginning.
When I heard about the Cebu Zine Fest 2017, personally I was disappointed. I wasn’t going to be available on those dates, but I sent long time Zerothreetwo photographer, Scott Pacaldo, to the event. I knew he would be excited to go because we had been talking among ourselves about creating a zine for Zerothreetwo, but we didn’t know where to start. All we had for inspiration was the internet. Scott even went so far as to try printing a few for fun.
One of the advantages of living in a small city like Cebu is the opportunity to meet many people. The circles are small. If you are seeking a particular tribe, it isn’t difficult to find. Want to meet musicians? Watch a few gigs and share beers with them afterwards. Want to meet dancers? Take a few dance classes and hang out after. The magic happens when you get people from different tribes and put them together to collaborate.
“Why do they make that sound?” Kami was referring to the local surfers as they shouted the words ice candy in what can only be described as orgasmic. “Ooohhhhaaahhhhiiiccceeee cccaaaandddyyy!”
We’ve had a few years to build Zerothreetwo as a brand, but make no mistake, we’re still in the early stages. I remember coming up with a name for this little venture. We wrote a list of names on a piece of paper, many of them were crappy. I wish we still had a copy of that paper just so we could look back and see what we wrote. Fortunately for us, someone came up with Zerothreetwo and it stuck.
A giant THANK YOU to filmmaker, Martin Tabanag, for filming highlights of the last Art Party. In case you haven’t read about Art Party yet, watch the video below and read my little recap about it.
Inspired by the colors from the late 80’s and 90’s, Fake Friends releases its first summer collection. This collection features a muted palette from shades that defined an era.
Time is undefeated.
But that doesn’t mean we should stop striving to be remembered.
Timelessness is a worthy goal.
