Finally Rico Blanco is back on the music industry! After leaving Rivermaya and going soul searching for a long time, he finally decided to enter a recording studio and make real music again. Actually, I have no idea what he did when he left. All I’m aware of is he did some fashion designing stuff (for Human), and did a mini show for the farmers once (I’m not very sure of this but he DID, my fact is not that accurate, my apologies). I’m sorry if this offends some RM fans but after Rico left, it really wasn’t Rivermaya anymore. I don’t know, maybe Rico IS Rivermaya alone. The new Rivermaya is just not Rivermaya, its just the name but the music is very different.
And let me share you something, there’s a guy in my school who looks a lot like Jayson Fernandez (present vocalist of Rivermaya)! It’s embarrassing but sometimes, when I see him in the hallway, I can’t help but stare at the guy. LOL. Quick 5-seconds stare though, I believe he has buddies that I am classmates with in two subjects, so no long stares. 😯 While I’m at the topic of celebrity/musician look alikes.. here’s my recent findings: We have a Claudio Sanchez (Coheed and Cambria) look alike. He’s not my classmate in any subjects, but I see him in school often. He has THE Claudio hair, for the most part, and his body is Claudio-ish. I know Ian couldn’t agree more with my statements about his favorite artist’s look alike. 😛 The only thing missing is a guitar and a microphone for our Claudio look-alike. He really looks convincing, I stare at the guy longer than the Jayson look-alike. Last guy on the list is the look alike of Paul Yap (Up Dharma Down bassist) in my DESPRIN1 class every Tuesday. 😛 That’s all.. I love my school! :heart:
So yeah, back to Rico Blanco. Along with his new song, comes a new album as well! It’s also titled ‘Your Universe’. I’ve heard some songs off the album already from imeem and I liked them a lot. On repeat for me, besides ‘Your Universe’ is his song titled ‘Ayuz’, really catchy. I didn’t post it here though because it’s not in English, so my foreigner readers (if there are any) might not understand so I posted the English song instead. I hope you like it guys, I did! :dance: Have I mentioned I don’t have the CD yet? Ugh. I wish I found out about this days ago so I could’ve searched the malls for the CD since I’m too lazy already to go out today.
I might go to the Eraserheads reunion concert after all. The sad thing is, I won’t be enjoying the night of August 30th with my brother. :hmph: I did whatever (polite) I can to include him, but they’re really strict that only 18+ year old people can go to the event. Oh well, safety measures I suppose. I owe my brother big time, I promised him if Coldplay or one of his really favorite bands comes here in the Philippines I will treat him! No, not VIP tickets.. I’ll try my best to give him the best accommodation of the show by means of getting a good place in the venue for him to watch the band. 😉 I hate that I had to break the news to him when he just woke up hours ago, right now he’s back to sleeping. I’d like to give a big, BIG thank you to Marcus Adoro for the ‘invite’. :heart: Forever grateful to him even though he doesn’t know me.
Yup, my post for today ends here. I’m still practicing to stylishly fold table napkins for my ORALCOM2 final exam this Wednesday. Please wish me luck, I’ll really need it. Thanks a lot! Just in case you are wondering what my title has to do with the entry, A Million Flames is the Multiply site of Rico Blanco. 🙂 Till next time!
