PORTRAITS by ABADVIBES


Clockwise from L-R: Julius "???" Valledor, Diego "Abad Vibes" Abad, Idris "The Babeslayer" Vicuna, Ralph "Lauren" Mendoza

The pogiest one gets the ugliest drawing (me) and the ugliest one gets the best drawing (diego). Idris looks like a tough guy and Ralph looks exactly like Ralph. It would be really cool if we could get some art submissions. Draw us human centipede-ing, or having tabo sex (it's like shower sex but when you use a tabo because you can't afford a shower - I'll get more into this when I make the "Bee Eyes made up slang" post), or as girls with tig ol bitties. You never know, we might include your art in our upcoming ZINE. Be creative because we will make fun of your drawings if they suck. Joke lang (half meant). Can someone answer this question for me. I've always wondered... Are CHOSes half meant when someone is just chossing?

SUPER MALABRO


BROFILES: A LETTER FROM CHIP DELGADO (dated: april 20, 2012)

YO RALPH "LAUREN' MENDOZA. SUP PARE! NICE YOUR BLOG! IT'S ALREADY MY FAVORITE LOCAL BLOG. MUCH LOVE AND SUPPORT PARE. YOU'RE REALLY MY BEST HIPSTER FRIEND. EVERYONE ELSE POSES LANG. TANGINA, DID YOU SEE PEOPLE TWEETING ABOUT COACHELLA LIKE THEY KNOW WHAT'S HAPPENING? PARE, I WAS VIP LAST YEAR. NO ONE CARES ABOUT THE MUSIC IT'S ALL ABOUT THE PARTIES BRO. TANGINA THIS GIRL I KNEW FROM BRENT WENT AND WAS INSTAGRAMMING PICS FROM THE FRONT ROW. I WAS BACKSTAGE BITCH! I'M SO SORRY WE DID NOT GET TO GO TO BROCHELLA THIS YEAR. I KNOW I PROMISED YOU LAST YEAR THAT I'D TAKE YOU THIS YEAR BUT MY MOM WAS BEING A BITCH E. I COULDN'T LEAVE THE COUNTRY. THE LINE UP THIS YEAR WAS NOT EVEN THAT GREAT TO BE HONEST SO I'M GLAD WE DIDN'T GO. WHO WANTS TO WATCH RADIOHEAD GET OLD ANYWAY? DID YOU WATCH IT SA WEBSITE? I DID NOT GET TO. I WAS AT ERICA'S NEW PLACE IN DASMA. SHE DOESN'T HAVE NET PA. FUCK DUDE, WE WERE SO WASTED YESTERDAY. WE WALKED TO RUSTANS TO BUY MAGNUMS BUT THEY SOLD OUT SO WE WALKED TO SHELL AND THEY SOLD OUT TOO THEN WE SAW ANTON GETTING GAS SO WE JUMPED IN HIS CAR AND DEMANDED HE TAKE US TO ROCKWELL TO BUY JAPANESE ICE CREAM. WHO NEEDS MAGNUM WHEN YOU HAVE A CAR TO BUY BETTER ICE CREAM SOMEWHERE ELSE? BIG MISTAKE TO HASSLE ANTON. HIS BENZ'S AIRCON WAS BROKEN TANGINA. HE WAS ON HIS WAY TO GETTING IT FIXED. WHEN WE GOT TO ROCKWELL MY NEW SPRING SUMMER 2012 FRED PERRY SHIRT WAS DRENCHED IN SWEAT AND ERICA STANK SO BAD. SHE SMELLED LIKE HER OWN PEKTOT SO WE SPRAYED AXE FOR WOMEN ALL OVER HER BODY THEN GOT INTO A FIGHT WITH THIS LESBIAN LOOKING TITA WITH A LAZY EYE BECAUSE ERICA ACCIDENTALLY SPRAYED HER SHOPPING CART AND THE AXE GOT ON HER STRAWBERRIES DAW. HASSLE. WE DIDN'T EVEN GET TO BUY JAPANESE ICE CREAM BECAUSE WE DIDN'T BRING MONEY. HASSLE. I LEFT MY WALLET AT ERICA'S BECAUSE I THOUGHT SHE WAS GOING TO BRING MONEY BUT SHE DIDN'T BRING HER WALLET EITHER. TANGINA SHE BROUGHT A BAG BUT NO WALLET. HOW STUPID THAT GIRL SOMETIMES. I LOVE HER TO DEATH THOUGH. SHE KEEPS SAYING "LANG ANG PEG" LIKE "SO-AND-SO LANG ANG PEG". IS PEG THE NEW THING? 2010 LANG ANG PEG NG WORD NA PEG. 2000 AND LATE. FILIPINO TIME SLANG. SOBRANG STONED AKO PARE SORRY. REMEMBER OUR DREAM COACHELLA PARE? COACHELLA PHILIPPINES IN HEAVEN: NIRVANA, JEFF BUCKLEY, AMY WINEHOUSE, ELLIOTT SMITH, ERASERHEADS, PAROKYA NI EDGAR, SKYCHURCH, BEE EYES, WYRD, ASIA'S SONG BIRD REGINE VELASQUEZ, SELENA, SHIELA AND THE INSECTS, CANDYAUDIOLINE, HUNGRY YOUNG POETS, APO HIKING, MOSCOW OLYMPICS,  ATBP. WHO NEEDS COACHELLA WHEN ALL THE BEST ACTS IN THE WORLD ARE LOCAL. PARE, I JUST CAME UP WITH THE BEST IDEA. WHY DON'T WE USE THE MONEY WE WERE SUPPOSED TO SPEND IN CALIFORNIA TO PRODUCE OUR OWN MUSIC FESTIVAL. IT WILL FEATURE EVERY SINGLE OPM ACT EVER SINCE THE BEGINNING OF TIME. WE'LL CALL IT BROPM MUSICAL FESTIVAL. WE CAN HAVE IT IN ANGELES CITY AND ALL THE BANDS CAN STAY IN SEEDY MOTELS AROUND THE CITY AND EACH BAND GETS A GRO. I WAS FRIENDS WITH A GRO ONCE. HER NAME WAS BEVERLY. SHE WORKED IN MALATE AT SOME SKETCHY BAR BEHIND CASA ARMAS I FORGOT WHAT IT WAS CALLED. I STOPPED BEING FRIENDS WITH HER BECAUSE SHE SLEPT WITH MY DRIVER AND HE GOT HER PREGNANT THEN SHE STARTED STALKING HIM SO MY LOLO FIRED HIM. REMEMBER NESTOR? HE WAS THE BEST DRIVER. TANGINA, I GET HIGH KAYA IN THE CAR ALL THE TIME AND HE NEVER SAYS ANYTHING TO MY LOLO. I SMOKED HIM OUT ONCE PA NGA E. HE WAS SO STONED. I THINK THAT WAS THE SAME NIGHT HE GOT BEVERLY PREGNANT. PUTANGINA. I'M GOING TO MISS HIM. WE HAVE TO INCLUDE KENYO IN THE BROPM MUSIC FESTIVAL LINE UP IN HIS HONOR. KENYO IS HIS FAVORITE BAND. HE USED TO SING THE SONG SIMULAN NA NATIN IN THE CAR ALL THE TIME. IT'S EVEN THE RING TONE ON HIS NOKIA 3310. HE COMPOSED THE RINGTONE HIMSELF. I DON'T EVEN THINK HE KNOWS ANY OTHER KENYO SONGS. HE JUST REALLY LOVES THIS ONE.



PARE, HAVE YOU SEEN THE MUSIC VIDEO FOR THAT SONG? IT'S CRAZY DUDE. HI-C FROM MOBBSTAR SUCKS SALAD DRESSING CLEAN OFF A CUCUMBER STICK. WILD! THE SONG IS REALLY SEXY THOUGH. IMAGINE YOUR BAND BEE EYES WITH A HOT GIRL SINGING ABOUT THE MOONLIGHT. I THINK YOUR BAND TRIES TO BE LIKE KENYO BUT CAN'T QUITE GET IT UP. JOKE LANG PARE! YOU KNOW I LOVE YOUR BAND. LET ME KNOW WHEN YOU HAVE GIGS! YOU SHOULD PLAY AT 19 EAST. THEY HAVE A REALLY GOOD SOUND SYSTEM AND TO DIE FOR LIEMPO.

VISIT ME IN ALABANG SOMETIME OR COME HANG OUT WITH US AT ERICA'S NEW PLACE IN DASMA. SHE HAS A POOL ON THE SECOND FLOOR AND THE CEILING OF THE FIRST FLOOR IS TRANSPARENT. BALLIN'!

HOPE ALL IS WELL. GOOD LUCK SA BLOG. IF YOU'RE NOT TOO BUSY LET'S START A BAND. I CAN PLAY PERCS BRO. WHATEVER MUSIC, WHATEVER TRIP, BASTA "SIMULAN NA NATIN."

PARE, LET'S COVER THAT SONG. HERE ARE THE CHORDS. NOT SURE IF THEY'RE ACCURATE I GOT THEM LANG FROM ULTIMATE-GUITAR.COM.

Intro: E  , Bm , E , Bm

(Chords verse I)
Saksi ang langit lihim ng hangin
Sumpa ko sa buwan di kita pababayaan


STAY GODFEARING ALWAYS,
CHIP "IF I WERE A MYX VJ YOU'D PROBABLY WATCH MYX MORE" DELGADO --- BROTHER OF HOOPS "WHAT'S THE SCOOP?" DELGADO, THE ALABANG STREET BALL LEGEND.

TOKYO GHOST



We recorded this in my bedroom like 2 weeks ago. Idris was really stoked on it. Just to give you guys a little backstory about the song. The girl in the photo is his girlfriend. She lives in Tokyo. Pretty typical right? WRONG! The twist is... She's a ghost! She died years ago. When Idris and Celene first got together in Singapore we were like WHO THE FUCK IS THIS CHICK? So, like any curious and protective friend, I googled her and found out that this girl has been dead for the past 12 years. My first thought was... WHOA, THIS IS CRAZY! IDRIS SHOULD MAKE A SONG ABOUT THIS. When I told him he started to cry. Luckily I had my iPhone with me and i recorded him crying. What you hear in the song is not a synth. It's Idris crying. Pure raw emotion. A lot of people like to call this song chillwave but i think it has surpassed that trend and is a steady ocean of healthy fish and corals. It's that underwater-alien-temple-island-they-found-in-japan-wave. How's that for a fucking write up?

love, bee eyes

PS CELENE IS NOT DEAD. 

BUT THIS GIRL IS


This is my first time hearing about this. WTF MAN THIS IS INSANE! This is something TENGAL would tell me about. JESUS CHRIST. 

STAY GOD FEARING PEOPLE!

BEDROOM SESSION









 





After spending so much money going to studios and getting nothing done we decided to finally bring it back to the bedroom where everything is free and we have time to really experiment and find the sound we want. We'll post our new song and video at the end of the month. Stay tuned.
