MIAS 2019 — I Test Cars by Pretending to Be a Dead Body

MIAS 2019

Having been enjoying making vlogs so far this year, I decided to look up every single event I could possibly attend. The first non-geek thing I saw was the Manila International Auto Show, which I last went to back in 2013. I went with my friend Jilbert, who’s more of a car guy, and stayed there for over 3 hours or so, then went home. What followed was two weeks of editing hell I put myself through. (more…)

GameCon PH 2019 — Late Post is Late

GameCon PH 2019

For the third year in a row, I was able to attend GameCon PH. While I wasn’t able to post the vlog on last year’s event, I still got invited as media somehow. I’m quite thankful that this winky dinky blog somehow gets taken a bit seriously in that regard, even as the event continues to grow. It’s now definitely one of the premier gaming conventions in the country, and I hope they grow even larger. (more…)

Sticker Con MNL 2019 — Calm Before the Shitstorm

Sticker Con MNL 2019

It was a tiring day as I was supposed to work a (non-MWF) wrestling event on the same day, organized by someone who had no business promoting a wrestling event in the first place. It was the same man who was imploring me to skip out on Retro Gaming Con the previous month to attend one of his “meetings”. However, not even something like that was going to keep me from attending Sticker Con this year. (more…)

Retro Gaming Expo 2019 — Missed a Meeting for This

Retro Gaming Expo 2019

It has been well over a week since I was at the Retro Gaming Expo in Fisher Mall and then uploaded the vlog, so I got to think over everything I saw and experienced over 4 hours of being there while getting myself hopped up on caffeine and other legal stimulants. You should be able to sense the weird mix of enthusiasm and dejection from the vlog as I alternated between having fun looking at retro gaming stuff and getting pissed at something else. (more…)

Cosplay Matsuri 2017 — A Good Year-Ender

Cosplay Matsuri

This may be the perfect way to end a year full of personal breakthroughs—becoming the ring announcer of Manila Wrestling Federation (and doing it well) and figuring out how to cover events my own way. The latter has been more hit than miss this year, after having tried making event vlogs for a few years now. Cosplay Matsuri 2017 seems like a great way to cap things off and celebrate the realization that doing this content creation thing isn’t just a waste of my time. (more…)

Andy Kunz Fight Night — Impromptu Juggling Act

Andy Kunz Fight Night

A week after MWF Balikbayan (late blog post on that coming soon), I had to do another ring announcing gig in the same venue. It was the Andy Kunz Fight Night, an amateur kickboxing event. I did think it was going to be a relaxing day of me just shouting out names of two guys about to beat the shit out of each other, but it turns out I had to do more things than that. In fact, particularly for this event, I had to do even more juggling than I usually do with MWF events. (more…)

Geek Day 2017 — Still an Okay Time, I Guess

Geek Day

A week after vlogging Cosplay Mania 2017, I felt confident enough to do more event coverage. It just so happened there was indeed another one the following week in SMX. Geek Day 2017 was a smaller and more intimate event, focused on things I’m more into. On paper, that seemed like a good way for me to make up for not vlogging AsiaPop Comicon. While I did take a bit longer to finish than Cosplay Mania 2017 due to work and procrastination, I did learn a few things on how to cover events I didn’t plan in advance to attend. (more…)

Cosplay Mania 2017 — Hit and Miss

Cosplay Mania

The event ended up being a mixed bag, it seems. Cosplay Mania 2017 was alright, as far as my experience is concerned. However, plenty of reports suggest they had plenty of problems during those two days. Perhaps it was bound to happen when they tried to do just a bit more than in previous years, or maybe something in their planning went down the drain sometime during the event. Whatever went wrong there, I may have circumvented most of them through both opting for a silver ticket (I bought a gold ticket last year) and just sheer luck. (more…)

GameCon PH 2017 — Just Games, Nothing Less

GameCon Philippines

This is the first official event coverage for the blog, so I was looking forward to it for a good while. I haven’t been able to attend other local gaming-related events such as ESGS and Pinoy Gaming Festival, so I saw this as my chance at catching up. While I’m only able to publish a post about it already a week after the fact, I was able to put together a video tour of GameCon PH as coverage. (more…)

MWF Republika — Freedom and Progress

MWF Republika

Up against what could be a sophomoric jinx, Manila Wrestling Federation came up with a card that had less gimmicks and fancy stipulations, depending more on better booking and building storylines to carry things through. There are still some stumbles (like me announcing the wrong guy again), but there is indeed significant progress. With that progress comes freedom to do more things that can make for better shows in the future. (more…)

Being Bruce Buffer for a Day [Vlog]

Being Bruce Buffer for a Day | Sonny Go

There was an amateur kickboxing event organized by World Kickboxing Federation Philippines and Savate Philippines, the latter of which I’m a part of (to some extent). I got assigned as a host and fight announcer, which meant I had to put on proper human clothes and drink some ginger tea to prepare my voice to do something like a Bruce Buffer impression in the Hybrid Manila gym cage. This vlog details what happened during that event from my perspective. (more…)

On Externalities and Hindrances [Vlog]

Vlog 04: On Externalities and Hindrances | Sonny Go

After four whole months of nothing, I actually uploaded a vlog on my personal YouTube channel. It was inspired by a conversation I had with friends during a gathering, as well as the sheer need to upload something after weeks of absolutely nothing. This vlog gets a bit more personal, but it does have something on the current state of affairs with both the blog and the YouTube channels. (more…)
