When I began my four-day venture at the New York City Horror Film Festival, I assumed that my role would be to document and review the various films and shorts that premiered. However, like any unique institution, as I sat in the backroom speaking to Sean Marks about a friend of his that died two years earlier, I quickly learned that there were bigger things going on around me. “Mike was a one-man army,” Marks said, seemingly holding back tears. He was one of several staff members that I spoke to throughout my time there, and through these people it became apparent that, after breaking through the festival’s outer shell, there was a story. The New York City Horror Film Festival is a self-sustaining watering hole, where directors, actors and actresses, producers, special effects artists, and general fans of the...

In a 12-person heap, reigning Champion Wayne Algenio successfully defends his title by beating his previous record (18) with a new whopping total: 27 37 Balut in five minutes. In a gallant effort, our own Jose Mercado finishes with 11. ***UPDATE: Apparently, there was a mis-count. Wayne ate THIRTY-SEVEN. NOT 27.

An estimated 100,000 people were in attendance, according to the NYPD - easily the largest gathering of Filipinos outside the Motherland. -- New York, NY - It is a booming Filipino tradition that New York has learned to embrace. Every first Sunday of June, kababayans flock to Madison Square Park to promote national pride, all in recognition of our country's day of autonomy. And on a sunny June 2nd, thousands of proud Pinoys came out for the 115th Philippine Independence Day Anniversary.

One of the most awesome things about living in New York City is that there is always something fun going on. There's always creative impromptu events, random celebrities pop up out of nowhere, and from time to time, the city is also treated to some really good live music. In this case, one of the greatest singer/songwriters in the world has made it known WAY ahead of time that she's coming to perform. The ABC early show Good Morning America holds outdoor concerts every year, and one of their offerings for this year is Alicia Keys, live in Central Park's Rumsey Playfield at 7 AM on August 30th. So for all those A. Keys fans out there, make sure to mark your calendars. [slideshow id = 22] [via]

In the first inception of this magazine, one of our earliest features (the very first one, in fact), was on the wonderful world of 'Walkabout NYC.' Walkabout, which was the brainchild of Harvest founders Danny Wen and Shawn Liu holds two annual events, one in the Spring and one in the Fall. Both of these events are essentially work space tours, and through Harvest, some of the most awesome internet startups hold open houses during the spring, while in the fall, advertising agencies take their turn in opening their doors to the public. In my opinion, the Tech Edition of Walkabout is one of the most fun things to take part in during the spring. And, very quickly, it is becoming one of the most anticipated events in New York City. You may have heard of some of these names: Facebook, Foursquare,...

It was a mass-like feel. One by one, people spoke, speeches at the ready. We walked into the Philippine Consulate, Friday, August 31st , to a room filled with a variety of folks. From ardent supporters, non-profit groups and those that just wanted to see what the event was about, people flocked to see the work of one Niccolo Cosme, artist and activist, who is making a name for himself as one of the more respected people in the field of Philippine photography. Resplendor is of Cosme's collection of conceptual photographs, aptly described as "images from Christian iconography with messages on HIV and AIDS." Together with APICHA Community Health Center, the goal is to bring awareness to the problems involving HIV and AIDS, particularly in the overseas Filipino community and OFWs around the world. Niccolo Cosme, for his part, is a...
