Imagine The Groove

Imagine Magazine #3 is out! It's the special music issue, entitled Imagine The Groove. I'm Guest Editor for this issue (my usual title on Imagine is Contributing Editor), but while I had a bit more participation this time around, the real credit, as always, goes to brilliant EIC Joyce Fernandez, as well as Kai Magsanoc and Yonina Chan and some other people who will feel like kicking me for not mentioning them by name. But you know who you are. :)

The launch is TONIGHT, January 23, at Cubao X, 7pm onwards! Do drop by.

There's a lotta stuff in this issue, but the main fashion feature has Everywhere We Shoot (Ryan + Garovs), Matt Gozun, Jujin Samonte, Jerome Lorico, Kenneth Chua, Geof Gonzales, Rcxy Bautista, Lotho, Daryl Chang, Andre Chang, and Cecile Zamora interpreting music by Radioactive Sago Project, Up Dharma Down, Drip, Ang Bandang Shirley, Outerhope, Musical O, Paramita, Swissy, Daydream Cycle, Juan Pablo Dream, and Sleepwalk Circus.

Bands were photographed by Everywhere We Shoot, Aldwin Aspillera and Richie Castro. Articles on the bands were by myself, Erwin Romulo, Sarge Lacuesta, Mookie Katigbak, Aimee Marcos and Je Bautista.

Whatta lineup, eh? See you there!

What's Imagine Magazine?

Heard a bunch of titles over at Summit Media are closing shop ... hope the local magazine industry sees this financial crisis through safely.

Hi wysgal! :) Remember this?

Same magazine, still -- but getting better, I'd like to think. :)

Funny, I actually heard the opposite about Summit. :) There are certainly still new magazines springing up all the time here, as a visiting friend of mine observed. Time will tell whether any of them survive, but in my experience it's not so much lack of an audience that kills a magazine but behind-the-scenes publishing politics. ;)

I must never have seen a copy of Imagine during the times I've been to Manila. =) Rogue I see all over the place though and I still love.

The buzz on Summit I heard from a friend that works there ... I guess they're trying to keep things hush hush for now. Heard of at least 3 titles they're axing for sure. =O
