Two days ago, I organised my second Alanis Morissette FoE party, the Rockla Edition.

(Rockla means gay people who likes rock music). There were quite a few people who express interest but of course, only one or two of them confirmed on the actual day of the event, so for practical sake, I put it off for next year and instead turn it into a different kind of party. I invited Cam whom I’ve met 5 years ago online, digging the same interest and that is Alanis, it’s funny because it took us a few years to really hit it off as buddies.

So I told Cam what happened, and so we opted for “party no. 2”, which is to hang out and talk/listen about Alanis. We were later joined by a friend Mikhel, whom is not-so-familiar with Alanis, and so we don’t have a choice but to have him swallowed a Jagged Little Pill, hahaha. It’s fun to see how he melted his inhibitions and how the three of us became at home in this high five. And yeah, we were giggling again for no reason. 

 

Fast forward to a few hours later, we were joined by Cam’s friends who came and brought some firewater, and yeah we been on the sauce for an hour or so. It was nice though, sometimes you just need to stop being in fine fettle and drink like someone under the table.

 

Thanks to Basol, Martin, Alden, Mike and Cam for sharing this wicked jollification. 😉

giggling again for no reason

Last night was another experience in my lifetime.
I always love being surrounded by musical people, maybe because I’m frustrated in  playing any musical instrument. That I just immerse myself in becoming an “audience” of these musical type of people, and that’s not being a critic too, although I do have my opinions.
It was another night of Terno Inferno at saGuijo, where all these bands from the same label show off their skills in music, and I just love the balance of it. From the “quiet is the new loud” sort to the “sonically enhanced” grandness.
Kudos to Outerhope, Swissy, Sleepwalk Circus, Musical O, Giniling Festival, Paramita and Up Dharma Down for the musical journey they provide this night.
And thank you Eon for the lovely company!
After that musical debauchery, I head off to meet Cam, who I befriended because we both adore Alanis – and more so now because we share a common ground in many things in this life.
We hang out till Sunday evening at her flat, talking our heads off, and giggling again for no reason.
Thank you Cam for sharing this jlp moment with me! 😉

I’m fortunate to be invited by Brian to be on his guest-list last night.
I approached Brian in Multiply, and told him that I’m a big Alanis fan, and I have this copy of Alanis Morissette’s first single Underneath (from her latest album “Flavors of Entanglement) that have all these club remixes, would he be interested to give it a spin in Bed and sure enough he agreed and offered to be his guest.
Brian played really good house music last night, with lots of vocals – which I love!
The one that still playing in my head, is the Snap song ” I’ve Got The Power song.”
So Brian if you’re reading this, as Alanis would say: “Thank you muchly!”. 🙂

Alanis Morissettes Flavors of Entanglement CD

Alanis Morissette's Flavors of Entanglement CD

So last night was one of the event that I will cherish in my life, and am glad I made it happen.
It’s my first ever listening party that I organised for Alanis Morissette‘s latest cd “Flavors of Entanglement (FoE)” that just came out internationally two weeks ago.
If you’ve known me for quite sometime, you’ll know that Alanis Morissette is one of my musical heroes – and I guess now, I can really say that “I’m a real fan”!
Just to give you a bit of background about it, I got hooked with her music when I first heard and seen the video for “You Learn” back in the mid-90’s; And from that moment on, I kept in touch with her music, and read stuff about her and so forth.
It’s also during that time, I built a fan site that started in Geocities then moved to Tripod, then finally having it’s own domain name which is “AlanisPlanet.com” – then the hosting/domain company that I have it on went out of business, and unfortunately I was not able to recover the domain, it basically fallen under a cyber-squatter’s hand.
And so I decided to become quiet about it for a year or so and resurface once again in time for the release of her Under Rug Swept cd, and this time with a brand domain name, Alanis2.com – to this day, it’s still up and running, in spite of it being too static.
I even got invited then to be on a radio program (K-Lite’s Morning Brew) several times to talk about Alanis and all. I was thrilled and have lots of fun (unofficially) representing her.
Going back to the original subject..
 
Yes, so I have been dreaming of having a gathering of fans here in Manila and I realised that the release of FoE is a perfect time for it.
So, I invited my so-called Alanis friends, put the word out there online – and planned to be surprise. 9 people came, 4 of us are (somewhat) die-hard fans, and the rest still stuck in her Jagged Little Pill era. We watched some videos of Alanis that she did over the years, and of course listened to the album in it’s entirety.
It was indeed a special moment for me, seeing bunch of us listening, enjoying, bitching, and getting excited about her. So thanks to Camille, Alain, Christian, Joel, Manna, Liz, and Madz for being part of the event! And my acknowledgement to all the people who helped me in the past, you know who you are!
Thank you muchly! xx
