” The first half of life consist of the capacity to enjoy without the chance; the last half consist of the chance without the capacity” -Mark Twain


As the morning dew drips on the glass of the window, the alarm stikes 5.  The sheets are all turned inside out with the blanket that still embraces. The cold breeze from the fan caresses your face carrying the chill of the morning. ” Another great day ahead of me” you murmured unto yourself as you decide if you are going to go for another 5 minute extension.  Your eyes are half open and still longing for another minute to be closed yet you gather your strength to stand up fast forwarding your thoughts to the day ahead.  The morning shower is always a disaster. It always feel colder with every drizzle that damps your skin, yet you endure.

You hurdle to the door as the morning sun illuminates the metro. You are at the end of a lengthy line that races to reach the platform of the station. A row of large sardines cans; that was what you have in mind seeing people struggle to fit inside the metal carriages of the transit.   “Will I be able to reach in time? ” you say to yourself, as if It feels like the clock runs faster and faster as your heart beat races while thinking of the possible memo that will greet you atop your desk, yet you withstand.

“Is this what I was destined to be?” A random thought clings inside of your mind while you ponder the deadlines that are due tomorrow.  At almost 11 pm it is hard to catch a ride from the office to the terminal, the transit was not an option for it only runs until 10. Without a choice you stride 20 minutes  to reach the bus stop.  You position yourself on the window side and mutter,” just a quick nap”.

The alarm goes off. As you open your eyes your 5 minute extension is over.

Our choices in life are always affected by many aspects, but will always lead to you and your decisions for yourself alone.  Is this what we were destined to be? Or maybe we are just confined within our comfort zones and left with the one decision that makes everything Routinary.

Extended Play

Artist/Type of Exhibit : Various Artists

Date : September 3, 2016

Time : 8PM

The walls of Vinyl on Vinyl has seen many lifetimes, with layers of paint and polish strewed across the cement, many frames come and gone, a mayhem of colors and figures splashed against the grain, and endless faces peering in its crafted flesh and coating. From the creative hub of the collective, to the gritty warehouse the gallery can call its own, Vinyl on Vinyl has found itself past five and shows no signs of slowing down.

For six years Vinyl on Vinyl has given an undeniably eclectic and one of a kind stage for the contemporary pop culture artists that yearned for an unconventional platform that can keep up with their explorations in art. Influenced and inspired by contemporary, pop surrealism, underground and street art, the gallery has remained true to its origins and has always put the things that matter most at the helm of operations: the art and the artist.

With a roster of diversely talented artists under their belt, a growing family both locally and internationally, and an undying hunger to showcase art that provokes and speaks, Vinyl on Vinyl continues to bring people together in the celebration and appreciation of the culture revolution that is art.


The Out Sounds From Way In : Imaginary Album and Music Show

Artist/Type of Exhibit : Various Artists

Date : September 3, 2016

Time : 8PM

A chronicling likened to an age-old tale of a “real-world” world-wind journey of an artist plucked out from the obscurities of a small town garage band and pushed into a world of lights, albums and making “real” music, The Out Sounds From Way In is a playful poke of appreciation to the music industry and the art that surrounds it.

Back with a vengeance from the underbelly of the underground scene, music has once again crawled out and taken center stage. With Mariano Ching, Victor Balanon, Saturnino Basilla, Elmer Borlongan, Mariano Ching, Louie Cordero, Electrolychee, Beejay Esber, Lea Lim, Carina Santos, Luis Santos, Brian Sergio, Apol Sta. Maria, Albert Sy, Wire Tuazon, MM Yu and Constantino Zicarelli back together the second time around, they up the ante from the first of a three-part exhibition. The Out Sounds From Way In: Imaginary Album and Music Show picks up where it left off and expands the world of the imagined musicians they’ve concocted. With the first show introducing the fictional up and coming bands with gig posters, the second comes in and solidifies the statuses of their fabricated artists.
