Vlog Ep. 62: The Fantasy Worlds of Jim Henson


Tonight's #BaduyPride episode was a bit of a change of pace as we ended up talking about different Jim Henson fantasy franchises that we've come to love. And that had us diving into the worlds of The Dark Crystal, Labyrinth, and the tales of The Storyteller. What's not to love given these different entertainment experiences that used the magic of puppets to bring them to life?

And beyond the movies and TV shows, we also got to celebrate the fact that these different properties have their share of expanded fiction including young adult novels and comic books. And for even more fun, there are different tabletop games including board games and the Labyrinth RPG, which is a beautiful celebration of the movie.

Vlog Ep. 61: Traveling the Great Western Trail


Over time, Mondays have become tabletop gaming days for #BaduyPride and today's episode celebrated the surprisingly fascinating game of Great Western Trail as created by Alexander Pfister. As if I didn't already love cows as much as I did before this game. But throw in a deck-building element? Oh yeah totally sold.

I'm glad that Tobie was able to secure a copy of the game for our collection after spending quite some time looking for one. He's now obsessing over all the different promotional expansions that had been released at different events, however, I highly doubt we'll find them anytime soon. Fingers crossed for now.

Vlog Ep. 60: Quarantine Check-in - Week 32


As we begin our 32nd week in lockdown here in Metro Manila, we figured it was a good time for another Quarantine Check-in episode fore #BaduyPride. We know that a number of our friends have been struggling this month and this episode was our contribution to everyone's mental wellness.

These episodes primarily consist of stories of our week and the things we ended up thinking and feeling because of that. And this week's adventures included us going to the mall together after almost 3 months (scary!) and recent online calls with friends really making a big difference. Everyone's dealing with this lockdown in their own way and we shared a few of our own ideas that may help some of you.

Vlog Ep. 59: Digital Dating


Because we enjoy letting our Friday night episode run a little longer, tonight's alcohol-empowered #BaduyPride episode was all about dating in this digital age! People had asked how social media had impacted our dating lives (which it hadn't), so we ended up talking about what we do think of the modern dating world and what fundamentals still apply.

But yeah, I think our core advice to people remains the same regardless of the medium. Be honest  - sell yourselves as you and not someone you hope to be. Figure out what your non-negotiables are. Be open to meet new people. Be clear in communicating what you expect out of a person or an encounter.

Vlog Ep. 58: Conspiracy Theories


I can't believe we actually did a Conspiracy Theories episode for #BaduyPride, but here we are. And on top of that, we're probably going to have another one someday given the response to this video and how lively the discussion ended up being. I guess people really like this stuff - including Tobie, apparently. Who knew, eh?

But all kidding aside, this was way too big a topic for a single episode and maybe we'll dedicate time to the sub-topics or individual conspiracy theories one day. The aliens discussion alone took up a lot of time in this episode because there are so many nuances to it and different aspects worth looking into.
