How to be a Music Artist in 2018 with Fonzy

Apart from the opportunity to reconnect with old friends, the podcast allows for a reason to talk to up and coming creatives. In particular, I’ve always had an interest in music artists. After all, that’s the genre I am most familiar with. Unfortunately, life happens. Which means I’ve spent less and less time in the local music scene. In the years since the hiatus of my band, Rescue a Hero, a new breed of music artists have taken over the Cebu music scene.

The Truth About “Influencers” With Issa Please

The Truth About “Influencers” With Issa Please

One of the best things I ever did was take a surf trip with the guys from Aframe Surf Company. I didn’t know it then, but it changed the way I looked at my life. Here’s what happens when you shed all the excess baggage and go on a real no frills trip. There was no room for unnecessary weight while on a boat, various car rides, and far away walks. Since you leave all the stuff behind, you are forced to choose what is important. This not only happens in a luggage sense, but also in a sense of what to bring mentally and spiritually. At first, I thought I was just going to enjoy a few days of uninterrupted surfing, but I didn’t expect a few days of pure wonderful uninterruption.

After my new found realization of what is important, it occurred to me to reconnect with an old friend, a friend who happened to be part of that faithful surf trip, someone who has had his fair share of similar trips, someone who has undoubtedly experienced what I experienced many times over. That’s what I was hoping to achieve when I invited Niconiks Ybanez over for a conversation. I got everything I expected and more.

You can imagine what a treat it was to have Nathaniel Soque of Linear Coffee Roasters in the podcast. There’s nothing I love more than talking shop about a topic I love. And, wow, talk shop we did! Not only did we dive deep into what makes a good cup of coffee, but we examine the precision and meticulousness needed to run a top quality cafe. This conversation changed the way I make coffee, and gave me insight of what it might be like to open up my future coffee shop (retirement plans). We get into the origins of Linear Coffee Roasters, their future plans, and talk about Cebu’s coffee culture.
