We Like To Drink Anywhere: We’re Calling it Commorancy ###

After developing a high tolerance for alcohol and the usual sleep deprivation. This group of friends decided to make something of it — most of them already being in the creative and artistic space of society, they turned what used to be just nights of drinking, gluttony, and video games into a collective of people who are self-proclaimed “Proprietors of a Good Time” (no sexual innuendo intended) who were hellbent on bringing creatives and eccentrics together. The Easy Afternoon Fellas.
The first of a series of events is Commorancy.
In a questionable attempt at trying to sound cool. We decided to call the event Commorancy###, by definition “A house or a dwelling place — usually a temporary one”. With the intention of bringing people together in unusual nooks and crannies of Cebu. Each Commorancy has a numerical suffix attached to it which indicates the first clue of its location — The house number. The nomadic nature of the events allows guests to feel familiar in an unfamiliar place. Same same but different.
One of the goals of Commorancy is to create a very casual space for informal dialogues between people. In hopes of creating relationships that would someday become awesome collaborations with different creatives.
One of Commorancy’s attractions during the event is the mobile “Saop™” cocktail bar. The token gay boy/bartender Zach Aldave curates and conjures up signature recipes for partners. The signature drink is a token of gratitude to the host or the venue.
Another thingy that the guys from EAF are planning to do during Commorancy is “WIP NIGHT” where people — drunk or not drunk — gather and talk about the projects they are working on. It’s a very loosely moderated set-up where the person talking decides whether they want advice or just want to talk about their project.

Commorancy also allows small scale food and beverage start-ups to pop-up during the event for exposure and as much moolah they can bring in by selling their stuff. So far EAF’s go-to coffee friends are the guys at Dirty Puma Coffee Co.. For the past 2 events they’ve had BRGY. Donuts and Haps-Homemade Goodies.
The afternoon begins with more than your usual dose of caffeine then crescendos into a night of heavy drinking, good conversations, and maybe even a cute boy/girl’s phone number or someone’s CV — or maybe just really a good friend.

Tie One

 Jonathan See Lim AKA Tie One (1979–1998), was a graffiti artist based in the San Francisco Bay Area. He was well known in the graffiti community for his aggressive style of graffiti art and the large amount of work he produced. Lim was born in the Philippines to ethnic-Chinese parents. During his early childhood, his family moved to California. -pilipinas-streetplan Saint Patrick’s Day has always been difficult to celebrate because on this day eleven years ago, our friend and soldier Tie, Jonathan See Lim, was murdered in the Tenderloin of San Francisco on Turk and Taylor. A man named William Porter shot him in the back of his head while Tie was begining to climb a rooftop to pain. Of cource the SF police covered it up as a robbery and our 18 year old little buddies death went unvindicated. He was a major influence to us all and his memory will live on in our hearts. - saberone

Wrap-Up Week-End

Garapata in Bacolod . Many artists from all over the archipelago went to Bacolod last Nov. 13-16, 2014 to participate for the Viva Excon 2014.  The art event is more of a traditional art event rather  than a "primary flight-ish" or !ha? but it didn't  stop street artists to do what they do best. Paint Jam by Soika, Buen Abrigo and    Cori Franchesca Co in Bacolod  Garapata Stop Over in Cebu. He painted with cebuano local street artists, Soika (a Viva Excon Participant), WR, Bart and CrazyMaggot. Free Anting-Anting . Sprouting in Talamban, Cebu City. Really nice to see street art in Cebu making a comeback with new talents. I thought the difference between Cebu and Manila is that the former ceased to produce new talents while the latter had an endless supply. I was wrong! Yummy in Busay. Yummy is Bart's younger brother. He is quite unique in Cebu, and has a distinct inking style. Dr. Karayom for ESC Project Escol
