That gown looks familiar, doesn’t it? It’s a long story, but this music video was the most wonderful Christmas surprise! I’ve talked way too much about this dress already (for like maybe four years straight equivalent if you’ve added all the social media posts made about it) so I’ll talk more about this band instead. I’ve been so out of the music scene in the country because of various reasons. But the good news is – when new channels have opened up and I got an actual working internet (believe me, Philippine internet is always a grimm tragedy) – I am exposed to new sounds I thought I can only find in the music of outside the Philippines. Mr. Bones and The Boneyard Circus just…sings to the creature of darkness that I am. They are perfect. And as I listen and listen and listen, they only get perfect-er. I cannot ask for more. Take me, Mr. Bones. My soul is yours. (more…)

Yes, it’s true. We were one of the exhibitors for this year’s Manilart (such honor, woo!) Here’s a little preview of the next write-up we’re brewing (it’s tough brewing those lately, especially with all the gowns we need to give birth to!) More to come soon.

Thank you for the screen time! We are definitely thrilled for next year, as the Madtinkers of Gallery Nine comes up with another out-of-this-world show.
