Someone asked me how my blog and newspaper column came to be titled "Bleachers Brew". It's like this, it's an amalgam of sorts of two things: The bleachers area in the stadium/arena where I used to sit when I would watch baseball, football, and basketball games and Miles Davis' great jazz album Bitches Brew. That's how it got culled together. I originally planned on calling it "The View from the Big Chair" that is a nod to Tears For Fear's second album, Songs from the Big Chair. So there.

Got a new article for the July issue of Men's Health Philippines!

Haven't written for Men's Health in years! There was a time when I was a semi-regular contributor to the magazine. For the July 2014 issue, I wrote about why a man should choose a sports team and root and cheer for them til death do them part. Sure was a blast. For my next assignment for them, it's all about food. It's a welcome change of pace.

Before Philippines Free Press closed down, I wrote regularly about climate change, alternative bands, and politicians. For their sports feature, I regularly wrote about Manny Pacquiao. For, I get to write pretty much anything I want to. So I am not limited to sports, I do a lot of comic book features and the odd movie review and lifestyle piece. 

Do I keep copies of what I write? Sure I do. Everything. Maybe one day I will compile my favorites into a book.
