I Will If You Will Campaign for Earth Hour

Since we do support Earth Hour for its contribution in saving electricity that will in turn conserve a lot of natural resources that are quickly vanishing even up to this date, the campaign of switching off lights at home and establishments has become a very successful one especially here in the Philippines. But the war is still not yet over as many are still rely on these resources for energy and livelihood.
Now the World Wildlife Fund Philippines (WWF Philippines) made this campaign of "I WILL IF YOU WILL" to challenge ourselves in being better people that have do care for our mother earth, as earth hour goes beyong the hour of switching off into a long term and achievable task which will benefit nature.

Here I have a commitment I made with Krisis Komix. Go Ahead and make your own now and post it on the facebook of WWF Philippines!

It Earth Hour once again and this also means the 3rd anniversary of Krisis Komix! And this time we hope to be more involved in helping spread the word of saving mother earth by conserving energy in our home and businesses. 

With just an hour of switching off lights we can save a lot of energy that consume oil and other natural resources that can never be replenished ever again. 

And let's all have fun and enjoy performances and activities during this worldwide event. The Philippines has been one of the  biggest participants for Earth Hour with more cities participating plus business centers and establishments.

To all Cebuanos and DavaeƱos! WWF will also hold official Earth Hour switch-off ceremonies in your cities! See you at the Plaza Independencia (Cebu) or at SM City Davao on March 31!

Happy Earth Hour and Happy Anniversary Krisis Komix!

BLTX Today Until Tomorrow!

Better Living Through Xeroxography or BLTX is a small-press expo now on its second incarnation, the first one a success by indie standards: 30 small press publishers and 200 buyers on a rainy December day in 2010.

The goal of BLTX is simple. Bring together independent self-publishers from Metro Manila (hopefully from elsewhere, too), in a one-night event that will allow them to sell their wares: books, yes, but also zines and other printed materials like shirts, postcards, posters, and this year, CDs from musicians more indie than indie. It’s about selling, but also about meeting like-minded individuals who believe in literature and creative work that might not ever get into the mainstream of commercial bookstores and galleries, but for one night is the star of the show.

You can also just imagine BLTX to be the coolest meet-and-greet between writers and readers, one that involves beer, some music, and plenty of creativity you rarely see. 

This year though BLTX will also be space for productive discussions on the making | marketing | selling of the self-published book, where practical aspects of actual independent book production will be shared by those who have survived it with sanity intact. BLTX Talks will happen the day after the BLTX small-press expo, a full six hours of four different panels that will answer central questions about PRINT PUBLISHING, ONLINE / WEB PUBLISHING, RETAIL & DISTRIBUTION, and COMMUNITY. All necessarily in light of the industry of independent self-publishing, and all against the traditional forms of cultural production as we know it in these shores.

This year BLTX will happen at Ilyong's, Kalantiaw, Project Four, Cubao from 8:00pm until Tomorrow at 8:00pm.

Be Part of Earth Hour!
