I am Cj de Silva. Some might recognize me as the Promil Kid. I love to paint and illustrate. Advertising is not just a day job for me. Film, moving pictures and music are my escapes.

BACK TO SCHOOL PLAYLIST

Cliche as it may sound, I realized that UP Diliman felt like home. Even if I’ve (figuratively) moved out four years ago, its still my sanctuary. School will always be the place where I can go back to innocence, where idealism is my everyday coffee and mistakes are fixable the next semester.

As Obsolete as Love Letters

Cassette From My Ex Book Cover

I really didn’t make a mixtape for anyone but myself. I was 11 back when I used to wait for my favorite songs on the radio. I’d even do customized cassette labels and flaps, doodling and pasting photos. Mixtapes where my first typography projects.

But reading this made me remember Butch Walker’s song Mixtape. Mixtapes may be obsolete now, but the spirit behind it stays on. We compile songs, tell our stories through the words and melody of musicians we love. And sometimes, I feel mixtapes are like masks and armors.

Cassette from My Ex: Stories and Soundtracks of Lost Loves features stories of romance, crushes and mixtapes from: author Rick MoodyThe Magnetic Fields’ Claudia GonsonThis American LIfe’s Starlee KineThe New Yorker’s Ben GreenmanBlender Magazine’s Joe LevyImprov Everywhere’s Charlie ToddMortified’s David Nadelberg–  even a new story from the godfather of the genre, Rob Sheffied.
