Lovers and vloggers Jonathan and Olive of the YouTube channel JonaLive reveal their separation via two super chats. As they emphasize their channel’s branding that “we receive the love we deserve,” the line separating online and physical realities is muddled by the murky realities of love.

Tried for the first time to adapt and perform the MonoVlog on Zoom for an international audience at The Magdalena Project’s Bodies:On:Live Magdalena:On:Line 2021. Learned that the most powerful buttons were the mute and unmute buttons. Ibang creature talaga ang Zoom.
Thank you for the wonderful comments from all the participants! Thank you, Elizabeth De Roza, Janaina, Helen, and the Magdalena Team for creating this space and for all your hard work!
Humbled to present in a panel with Frederika Tsai and Bettina Fung. They are awesome! You may Google their works or go to the Magdalena website.
Salamat sa Pinoy friends, John Carlo Pagunaling and James Harvey Estrada!!
Layeta Pinzon Bucoy, from Australia to the world. English-english tayo. Na-translate pa sa Spanish na alam kong naiintindihan mo rin. Pwede na siguro tayo magBIGO LIVE.

Balik po ako sa biggest channel sa Kumu. Lezzgo! Semi-rehearsal na rin for UK festival.
Sa special Spotlight episode ng Laff Trip ay magtuturo si Madam Tseter at ang kanyang other half na si MananangGAL Gadot ng voice acting for halimaw upang magmistulang hunyango kayo sa anime, audio stream o Radyo Romansa. Lumabas na sa anino ng gabi, magpahid na ng langis, patulisin na ang mga pangil, at magvocalize na gamit ang mala-sinulid na dila. Ang pagtatawas ay magsisimula ng 9pm sa 22 June (Tue) sa Kumu Spotlight Channel.
Pagpag pag Friday. Minsan di ko alam naiisip ko. Takot din ako sa thoughts ko.
Sa episode 11 ng Ang Paglalakbay ni Madam Tseter sa Kumuniverse ay gagawa si Madam ng review ng Pinoy animated series na “Tresesiete: Madam Tseter Made Me Do It” at ipipilit niya ang kanyang mga ideya para sa season 2 nito. Pag-uusapan natin ang aswang, bawang, at mambabarang. Welcome to the DIASbolical!Ang sapi ay magsisimula ng 8pm, 18 June (Fri) sa Kumu Ampalaya Monologues.
Superproxy time! Honored to share the recalibration of our undergraduate theatre program, the collaborations of the DSCTA, and my 15-month experience of creating and reshaping the MonoVlog with Layeta Pinzon Bucoy. Kahilera ang mga bigatin sa 18 June. Newbie po me. Salamat po, Dean Ami Ramolete sa opportunity.
We created a Pinoy panel entitled “Surviving Critical Conditions: Filipinos Putting Up a Fight amidst Pandemonium over a Global Pandemic” for the Inter-Asia Cultural Studies Society Conference 2021: Culture in the Pandemic Age in Singapore.

Grateful for the opportunity to work with colleagues from the UP Department of Speech Communication and Theatre Arts (DSCTA). Coincidentally, we are all former fellows of the Asian Graduate Student Fellowship at the Asia Research Institute (ARI) of the National University of Singapore (NUS). Lahat din kami fan ng bakuna. Akalain mo yun?
Salamat, Oscar Tantoco Serquiña for leading this panel! Salamat din, Charles Erize Ladia and Junesse Crisostomo sa comments, tawanan, cramming, chikahan, at health tips. Buy 1 take 3 po kami sa publication sana. Sana rin magtuluy-tuloy at lumaki pa ang ganitong writing group sa department.
The deadline for registration is on 16 July 2021. You may register here: https://bit.ly/3gDmlRv

Mapagpalayang pag-ibig sa inyong lahat sa 11 June, Friday, 8pm sa Ampalaya Monologues.
I commissioned artist Malayo Pa Ang Umaga (fan niya ko dati pa!) to interpret MananangGAL GADOT, the resident mananaggal acting titser and MonoVlogger in Kumu. Di ba pag sa Zoom mukha tayo lahat manananggal performers? Ito yung character na nagtuturo kung paano gamitin ang buong body online. Grabe yung detalye ng bituka, monoVlogger talaga. Si Alejandro (bungo) ay may special appearance din. Hahaha. Ang manager ko po sa Kumu ay si Dr. Layeta Pinzon Bucoy. Gusto ko lang banggitin kasi siya talaga nagturo sakin. Paki tag si Sir Budjette, baka naman pwede isama sa Trese. Nahihiya akong i-tag siya kahit FB friends kami. Haha. Paki tag din si Gal Gadot.
