Film, Fashion, Future and… Fandom
Last Saturday, I flew to the School of Fashion and the Arts at Makati, for PhilStar Supreme‘s talk on film, fashion and trendspotting.
I was with Chui, who the minute I revealed about Gino dela Paz as one of the speakers, died from squealing. At least, telepathically. Gino’s like her fave columnist, her deliberate crush, and I’ll shut up now.
Anyway, I myself adore Gino as well. The way he represents the meta-geek of pop culture knowledge in us. He can inevitably discriminate a person whose taste’s pretty much licked all-out by nothing but pop. I follow him on Tumblr and he’s pretty much one I look up to– as a writer. He’s worked for Rogue, Status, Preview, Channel [V], and right now he’s a copywriter at the Financial Times UK. (He brought out a print copy of the paper and one sentence instantaneously syringed in our minds: Why is it salmon pink?) People have been regarding him as a ~hipster and we all know he’s already ejected the consumed idea.
Back to the seminar, Gino was decked with Pepe Diokno, a profound young filmmaker I occasionally see at UP Masscomm then, and Daryl Chang, whose avant-garde bandage stockings and whole black garb in general blew our minds. So yeah, you can know all about what happened in the seminar aka 10 things from the SUPREME talks which I wrote for the anniv issue right HERE.
As for you, have you grabbed yourself a copy Philippine Star today? You should’ve seen Anne Curtis going androgynous. What a fierce young lady in those scruffy James-Dean-themed photos. A great cover art for Supreme turning three this month!
Again happy birthday to the section– which makes softcore journalism not to be undermined. There are still a few who don’t exactly know what the hell it is so I have no idea if they even read the papers anymore. “Supreme? What’s that?” “It’s a pop culture and entertainment Saturday section of the Philippine Star,” I’d reply unto their confused faces. It was only when I mention, “You know, the one edited by Tim Yap” that they’d say Aaaah, gets.
Sooner, their enlightenment is choked back. “What’s pop culture?” they’d ask. People.
