Last night, I was pulling an all-nighter for Mist while listening to ChiChi and GiGi's “Top 10 Definitions of Horror” Podcast. At around 4am, I remembered Chico saying something about being on air at 4am on a Saturday, so I decided to turn the radio on and post a tweet…
cokho7: anyone know the music chichi and gigi used for the @rxtmr's halloween horror special? would love to hear the entire thing! >.<;;;
Chico was the only one on air, but he read my message and said he would try to look for it. That was really exciting because he’s never read my messages or tweets before! He was telling people to send in their requests because… I guess it was too early! He sounded so sleepy!
cokho7: @chicogarcia please play patrick stumps' this city for my fellow artists who will participate in komikon indie tiangge. go pinoy komikeros!
Funny thing was, Chico forgot where he put my message! So he played it saying “Someone requested this- you know who you are!” and only read my tweet when the song ended. It was so cool~ And I hope a lot of Komikon artists heard it and share my sentiments about the Philippines. :3
The only thing was, Chico kept thinking I was a guy. Probably because he has an avid listener named “Coco” who is a boy?
In any case, Gino finally came on the air and I remembered… Gino is a gamer! He would probably be interested in anime too!
cokho7: 2 more panels to go! but i think i need to sleep now. good night twitter! thanks for the awesome music @rxtmr~ gigi! visit komikon please!
I didn’t think that was going to get read on the air, but it did! And in the exact words of Gino, “You tell me when it is right now!”
Apparently, Gino was deprived of going to cons when he was in the States and it was one thing that he regrets. Note that this was already around… 7 in the morning? And I’ve been up all night… but who can say no to GiGi and s/he’s this demanding?
cokho7: @ginoboi komikon is on nov19 at the bayanihan center, 10am-7pm. and please tell chichi i'm a girl, not a "he" ;~; @rxtmr
xD;;; I had to correct Chico by then, because he sounded really confused on how to address me! So does this mean we’re going to have a certified, hot DJ, who’s man enough to call himself a girl? (I swear, that statement only makes if you listen to The Morning Rush.)
…well, probably not. Someone in the booth said that November 19 was a Sunday, so Gino immediately said he couldn’t go. Otherwise, he knew where the Bayanihan Center was and even mentioned it was by Pioneer and that he was really close by.
But then that got me thinking… maybe if enough artists bugged him to go, he would! I for one, would love to meet him, and wouldn’t mind giving him a copy of my indie~ So rally up, fellow artists! You have the links to their tweets, so tweet away to Gino and encourage him to visit us at Komikon! We may not compare to the huge cons in the USA or Japan, but we love what we do, and we’re all awesome, friendly people
who only bite when asked! I’m kidding, I’m kidding~! xD;;;
It’s a silly dream of mine to see the DJs I love so much, but hey, as they say, dreaming is free of charge~ Thanks again to Chico for keeping me company during my all-nighter with some awesome music~ It got me through the night~ ♥
