BABYMETAL - One Year Later

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Saturday, August 1, 2015,


BABYMETAL with Babybones circa 2012 (from tvqc.com)

    Around March 2014, I first heard of the "metal" musical group known as BABYMETAL.  I immediately dismissed it as something I'd probably never get into.  If other people were into it, good for them, but I certainly wouldn't be.  The premise just sounded like something that could not work.  Even the name sounded ridiculous.

    Then around a year ago, in July 2014, I chanced upon the music video for Doki Doki Morning through my Facebook time...

Callous Comics on "Umagang Kay Ganda"

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Friday, July 22, 2011, In : Comics and Webcomics 


    Last July 19, 2011, several newspaper and independent comic artists and myself (representing webcomics) appeared in ABS-CBN's morning show Umagang Kay Ganda.  The show wished to feature local comics (known as komiks) which have been undergoing a dramatic resurgence lately.

    I met up with Lyndon Gregorio, Ariel Atienza, Michael David, and Melvin Calingo at an astoundingly early hour in a McDonald's and then headed together for the ABS-CBN studios.  There, we were directed to a series of...

My Report: Metro Comic Con 2011

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Monday, May 9, 2011,


    My experience with Metro Comic Con in 2010 was so overwhelmingly positive that I absolutely had to take part in MCC again in 2011.  I had far more material this time for con-goers to enjoy so I was pretty excited!
    Once again, like last year, I was the first among the artists in the Indie GO! Valley to arrive.  This was the area for Independent comic creators such as myself to set up shop for the convention.  The indie tables were located this year in the venue's periphery, albeit right...

Bacolod, Azkals, and the Azkaleros

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Saturday, February 12, 2011,


    They say a hundred travel books aren't worth one real trip... or that it's about the trip, not the destination.  My journey with the Philippine Men's National Football team began not too long ago (circa 2006, "long ago" is relative, I realize) though it has mostly been through television broadcasts of their matches (2007, 2010 AFF Cup, now called "Suzuki Cup", 2008 AFC Challenge Cup Qualifiers)  and through the various internet forums that have come and gone.  The team was already lovingl...

Callous Comics on "She... Ka!"

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Tuesday, January 25, 2011,

    Needless to say, today didn't start out like any other day.  Just yesterday, I woke up and was surprised to find that I had lost my voice!  Then, while in the long process of crawling toward being 100% awake (coffee was still brewing) my celphone rang!  It was an unknown number and I contemplated for a few rings whether or not to answer it.  After all, with no voice what could I do?  But like many times I threw common sense out the window and answered the call anyway.  I took a deep breat...

Art: Ahsoka Tano

Posted by Carlo Jose San Juan, MD on Monday, November 22, 2010, In : Art 

In a recent episode of Star Wars: The Clone Wars (entitled "Heroes on Both Sides"), Lucasfilm unveiled some new CGI character models of some key characters.  Most notable of which, at least in my opinion, was Ahsoka Tano who appeared to have aged somewhat and now exudes a more mature aura about her.  Ahsoka by far is my favorite character in Star Wars: The Clone Wars not only due to the mystery of her eventual fate (because of the feature films, we pretty much know what happens to most of the...
