Every year after my birthday I always get that feeling, somber, almost melancholy feeling in the pit of my gut, like the weather is still warm, but the day slows down and as I walk around the town I reminded it’s the end of Summer. Makes me think of all the fun we had at the beach and the carefree days we spent doing… well, actually doing nothing and loving every moment. Well, it’s been busy…
I decided that I’ll be doing a Vlog everyday for the month of August, it’s my birthday month and I’ll be traveling a bit, but if you have any ideas of other things I should do to close out my summer, hit me up & maybe we can hang out & you can make it in my vids! Check out my YouTube at: thedantebasco https://m.youtube.com/user/thedantebasco
So if you follow me on any the social medias, including this one, you can see (or read…however it goes) that I’ve been traveling a lot lately… Like a lot, a lot! I’ve been pretty much out of town (town for me is LA!) every week for the last few months. Look, I’ve traveled my fair share in life, but as of late, it’s been kinda ridiculous! I feel like a traveling salesman or like George Clooney in…
As Asian Heritage Month continues, I’m continuing to drop more videos. Here’s a poem shot by Neil Fernandez on the stage of the world famous “DPL-Da Poetry Lounge”… which just also happens to be home base for me and the crew.
Great work, Neil, big shout out and I hope y’all enjoy…
If you’re in LA & free next Friday night, i want to invite everyone out! We’re celebrating AJ Rafael and Carl Choi’s birthdays with a fundraising party at The Great Company in DTLA. We’re partnering with the Peace Project again to raise money to build at least 8 houses in the Philippines, and we’re asking for a $20 donation to be able to do so (it takes just $500 to build a house for a family).
Please come by. There’ll be live performances from AJ Rafael, Tim Be Told, Toestah, myself and many others. See you at 8pm
If you’re around the LA area, hopefully you can come out tonight to support us and our efforts to rebuild the Philippines. There’s going to be some great performances from myself, AJ Rafael, Corina Round, Gab Valenciano & Da Poetry Lounge poets.
It’s a fundraiser and you can come for free. (There’s a suggested donation of 10 bucks but give what you can) All the proceeds go to our efforts to rebuilding the Philippines. It’s just as important to me for you guys to come and support, every picture or tweet you guys send out will help us reach our goal. Here’s the website for more info: www.thewhole9.com/bringlove
And you may wonder what the goal is… It’s simple, we’re a smaller organization and our first goal is to rebuild a small village named Santa Fe. We want to rebuild 200 houses over the next 6 months that got destroyed in typhoon Haiyan. The first wave is a 56 house community and with our “Family to Family Program” you and your family can buy a house for a family in the Philippines for only $500! For a small sacrifice for us here, can mean the world to a family overseas.
So please support, come and hang out tonight and give what you can. It’s going to be a real family environment… I would love to see you there.
