Pinoy Rock Lives On 

by Philippe Recto
 

It was never meant to be mainstream…

A sound only the young would be inspired by. The Filipinos have always rebelled against the onslaught of the powerful and overwhelming. Thus, giving birth to such heroes as Lapu-Lapu, Andres Bonifacio, Jose Rizal, and others alike. Rock n’ Roll along with its off-springs of various genres such as Hard Rock, Punk Rock, Alternative Rock, Heave Metal, Hardcore, Fusion Rock, and so forth were all formed from rebellion. The devil’s music some would say…

Privileged Or Entitled... What You Need To Know NOW! 

You Gotta Be One or the Other!

Seriously though, if you still carry an attitude of entitlement (from other people) and you're in your mid 20s onwards, I'll say "Shame on you!" because unless you're royalty, you're not entitled to ANYTHING!

And often times, we give the word, "Privileged" a bad rap as well. But the reality... being privileged is... a privilege! And if we understand what it truly means, maybe... just maybe, we can get ahead in life - the right way!

Sit back and watch my short video…

A Pinoy Rockin' Christmas Party 2018 

It was a Pinoy Rock Christmas Party at the end of the day at the De Castro residence. But it was a crazy full day for me, Janelle and Cassidy. 

The holiday season can be overwhelming but at the end of the day, we still got through it and everything turned out alright. 

Thanks for watching!!!

Beware the Friend Zone In 2019 

You are in love with another person... but he/she doesn't feel the same way. You're in a dilemma because you don't want to get turned down, embarrassed or to outright lose this special person in your life. So what do you do? You do the most selfless, most stupidest thing known to mankind... you settle to be placed in the FRIEND ZONE!

Don't fool yourself, there's no getting out of it UNLESS you make it clear that you don't want to be there anymore.

In 2019, take a chance! Let the one you love know how…

Let It Snow by Jaja And Paco 

Oh the weather outside is frightful, 
But the fire is so delightful, 
And since we've no place to go, 
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! 

It doesn't show signs of stopping, 
And I've bought some corn for popping, 
The lights are turned way down low, 
Let It Snow! Let It Snow! Let It Snow! 

When we finally kiss goodnight, 
How I'll hate going out in the storm! 
But if you'll really hold me tight, 
All the way home I'll be warm. 

The fire is slowly dying, 
And, my dear, we're still good-bying, 
But as long as…

I'll Pick My Family Over My Bandmates 

I've matured. There, I'm admitting to it right now. I failed in making a ton of happy childhood memories with my firstborn, Heaven. I'm just glad he's forgiven me for being a LOUSY father while he was growing up. For his sake, and for the rest of my children's sake, I will NOT disregard them ever. 

Jonathan Buencamino prioritizes his son, Kurt, over band stuff. Perf de Castro does the same thing too! Why can't I?

So yeah... this blog will serve as my accountability reminder that my wife and kids will…

To My Family, I'm a Husband and a Dad... That's All 

Janelle and I decided to take all of the kids and my mother-in-law, with us to San Francisco. We were there for Pinoy Rock Revue, wherein I play drums as we commemorate the songs created by bands AnakBayan, Maria Cafra, Sampaguita and Juan Dela Cruz. We also featured Basti Artadi of Wolfgang as our guest vocalist.

I'd like to stress that the journey to San Francisco was surprisingly more interesting than being in San Francisco. It's because my family and our road trip bonding made it super special!

You Shouldn’t Compromise | Relationship Basics 

You shouldn’t compromise in a relationship. There is a better way. I talk about it in this vlog episode. Cheers!

com·pro·mise /ˈkämprəˌmīz/ - the acceptance of standards that are lower than is desirable.

We’ve heard it many times before. We’ve been advised to compromise ourselves to save our relationship. The reality is compromising hurts our relationship. There is another option...

It’s called “Give And Take”.
