One More Light lost

Losing another star in the music industry is never a good thing and especially if the reason is them taking their own life. The news of Chester committing suicide felt almost like how I felt when I learned Robin Williams committed suicide – like losing someone I knew personally and grew up knowing.

Now, if you would allow me to make your Friday just a little bid sadder, here are the songs I’m listening right now with tears involuntarily rolling down my eyes…sad to have lost one more light but happy to have been part of the generation who experienced their music.

Rest in Peace Chester and may your light shine on wherever you are right now.




Cebuano music ta bai!


If you’re a foreigner bravely exploring the busy and mini streets of the Philippines, American or not, you’ve probably heard people address you as “Hey Joe!”!

For most Filipinos, it is our simple way of saying hello. (Yes, we’re that friendly!) It might be puzzling for first timers but those who have been here and are staying here for good, this is something worth talking about – it may even be the reason why this group of American singers called their Cebuano-singing group Hey Joe Show!

Let’s get down to the real reason for this post and that’s to show you my latest favorite LSS song My Morena Girl. I’m guessing before the week ends, I should have the lyrics memorized! hehe ๐Ÿ™‚

Without further ado, here is My Morena Girl by Hey Joe Show! Enjoy! ๐Ÿ™‚

Oh they even got Cebuano covers for other LSS songs, so check them out on YouTube because for sure this video won’t be enough! ๐Ÿ™‚ Aren’t they just adorable and cute talking and singing in Cebuano? For sure, they got a lot of morena girls lining up for them now!

This is what I love about songs and music, it knows no race, no boundaries, no language – it’s just that powerful! I can’t thank the music gods enough for such a gift!


Izel’s Weekend Jam presents: “How to play the guitar without an actual guitar”


My son loves Red Hot Chili Pepper’s “Otherside” and it was fun to have caught him on camera jamming to the song with his make-believe guitar and his solid rockin’ moves!

Do check out his big finish! ๐Ÿ™‚

I guess the love for music does run in the family…enjoy!



Is there an explanation?

I call it the John Lennon Syndrome!ย 

I could actually win The Singing Bee but will definitely fail the “Name your Colleagues” quiz!

Anybody out there who shares the same symptoms? ๐Ÿ˜‰ Maybe there are others out there too??
