Here I go again. Promising you regular content and not delivering. Here’s the thing, though: I actually have a good excuse now. At least it’s not because I’m busy binge-watching the third season of Orange Is The New Black (although I plan to do exactly that over the weekend).

What’s been keeping me busy?!

RADIO!

Sorry for the super low-res photos haha I just took these with Photo Booth while on board!

So we’re the newest DJs of our favorite radio station, JAM 88.3. We’re both so happy because we listen to JAM non-stop like you won’t even believe how much we’ve memorized the commercials. For those who haven’t seen the light yet (a.k.a. still listen to other stations LOL), JAM plays new music alternative and they welcome the newest, freshest indie music on their playlist. No TOP 40s on the station so you’ll have to keep Carly Rae Jepsen on your iTunes library for emergencies.

If you’ve been missing my online updates (I swear I’ll go back to normal soon!), you can tune in to JAM 88.3 from 12-3PM, Mondays-Thursdays. That’s the time slot all trainees are put in because it’s the opposite of peak hour. That means there’s less risk of people listening when we accidentally say SHIT on air. *sigh* Yes, I said SHIT on air on my first day. We’re gonna move to 9AM-12PM soon and eventually you can listen to us on your way to work/school every morning from 6-9AM :)

You can stalk us by watching the live video feed on JAM883.FM haha! Tweet us @JAM883!! I’ll expect your tweets when we board today 12-3PM ha!! Our boss told us not to say our names on air for now so people don’t get confused and attached when we move time slots, I guess. But I think you guys deserve to know the truth!! LELZ. We’re so lame, we’ve been calling ourselves Sandy and Caab on air. NAPAKA-WALEY.

A PLAY!

Dubbed as Generation Y or Generation ME among countless iterations, millennials and the conversations that this generation has spurred, both on print and social media, are high and nigh and riper than ever. It’s on your Facebook, Buzzfeed, Thought Catalog, The New York Times, in our local papers, think pieces, films, visual arts, music, and various forms of media. Why millennials? You might ask. Because no other generation has both fascinated and frustrated the heck out of people like theirs has.

I haven’t been part of a play since the 2 I did back in pre-school. Oh, I also did 2 small ones for class back in college. They were both excerpts from Neil Gaiman’s Sandman and although I was mediocre and totally forgettable in the first one, I totally fucked up the second one. I forgot my line and started giggling uncontrollably on stage. It was seriously THE WORST. I’ve talked about it so many times before: I HAVE STAGE FRIGHT.

When The Sandbox Collective’s Toff De Venecia told me about No Filter, my exact reaction: wait, you’re asking me to write, right? And he said I could write if I wanted to but he wanted me to be IN IT as an actor! I said I’d completely ruin it but he gave me a pep talk and convinced me to say yes anyway. Now, I’m so happy I’m a part of it. It’s slowly helping me come out of my shell and I’m hoping this will be the road to banish my stage fright for good.

Here are some photos I took from the press con that happened last week:

There’s only going to be 6 shows and I’ll be doing the first weekend (JULY 25 3pm & 8pm, July 26 8pm) while Lauren will do the next! There are some promos happening (Buy 10 get 20% off; 40% off for students ONLY TIL JULY 10!) so call 0917-8996680 or TICKETWORLD at 891-9999 for tickets!

ALBUM LAUNCH!

WE ARE LAUNCHING OUR ALBUM TOMORROW!!! I am freaking out. Hahaha.

I wish I had more photos to post but even *I* still don’t have a copy of the album and I’ve never seen in in the flesh either. ACK! I’m hoping to pick one up today from the supplier so I can at least take a photo and promote it!! We’re only selling a limited number of copies. I’m so excited for tomorrow — I am so proud of us huhuhu.

So there, that’s my excuse for not updating as often as I can. Still, I’ve got a brand new camera (SONY A6000) AND I LOVE IT so you can bet your beautiful booties I will be filling you in on even the most mundane things that happen to me. Hope you can keep us company on the radio today from 12-3pm!

♥,
Saab

    Hey Saab,

    You wrote: “There’s only going to be 6 shows and I’ll be doing the first weekend (June 25 3pm & 8pm, June 26 8pm) while Lauren will do the next!” Should it be July, instead?

    Thanks

    Too bad I won’t be able to catch you doing NO FILTER! I’m planning to watch on August 2 instead because I have weekend work on July 25 and 26. :(

    Also, The Sandbox Collective is also doing a campaign to raise PHP 18,000 to invite thirty public school students to catch the show (http://trishasales.net/2015/06/29/play-it-forward-a-campaign-for-theatre-enthusiasts-everywhere)! Asked Toff if I could share it on my blog and he was more than willing to let me. Sharing is caring! <3

    Congrats on the album launch and radio gig! :D

    I also listen to JAM nonstop!! I’ve been waiting for this update ever since you and candy went on air. Haha. We’ll actually 12-3 is the most boring time for an office work and you guys were doing a great job for killing it! Hehehe. To the point that sometimes I need to hold up my laugh para di mag mukang baliw. Haha. What’s gonna happen to Eric and Pauline if you’re going to be put on their timeslot?
