Reader scheherazade asks if we have plans of compiling our interviews/profiles into a book, and silentfollower wants to read an article about Joel Torre. In fact we interviewed JT for a cover story in Flip 11 years ago. And we just found 20 copies of that issue in a box buried under a pile of books.
Flip: The Official Guide to World Domination, issue # 3. Contains essays by Lav Diaz, Tad Ermitaño, Tina Cuyugan, Adel Gabot, Gemino Abad and Ramon Sunico, an article on motorcycling by Jaime Augusto Zobel de Ayala, a treatise on economic competitiveness by Anton Periquet, an investigative report on video piracy by Roby Alampay, ruminations on Tom Babauta by Ige Ramos, Gabe Mercado’s groundbreaking research into the single most popular room service item in Metro Manila’s motels: crispy pata, a Bohol travelogue by Francine Medina, a fashion editorial by Joyce Fernandez, Buddha Boy’s advice column You’ve Got A Problem, our story on Joel Torre, and more.
This stash of Flip magazines will go on sale at JT’s Manukan branches next week. The magazine no longer exists, so this is a collector’s item, which will go for, hmmm, Php250 each. If you want to buy a copy, post your reservation in Comments before Friday and specify which JT’s branch is nearest you. The rest will be available at JT’s Manukan branches, where you can get Gus Fring, este, JT to sign your copy. Wait, we don’t know where he will be, so we’ll ask him to sign all the copies.
JT’s Manukan has branches at Granada corner Valencia St; Ortigas Avenue near Greenhills, SJ; Malugay corner Buendia in Makati; Sgt. Esguerra St. near Tomas Morato QC; Home Depot on Julia Vargas in Pasig; Katipunan, QC; Eastwood City Walk; McKinley Hill, Bonifacio; and Banawe Ave, QC.
