My dear friend Katrina Tuason, who is also the marketing director for Rogue Magazine sent out the invitations for the launch of Rogue Magazine’s New Media Division, and immediately I got excited.
I remember the topic of New Media being thrown around the Rogue office for quite some time, and then finally, they just made it happen. They launched Rouge.ph, and Rogue Live, which is basically vidoe clips of several Rogue events and Rogue exlcusive interviews that have been made digitally available on-line. With the help of pelicola.tv, Rogue gets to add more meat behind just being a simple magazine, to becoming a new media. Not only will you get the Rogue-ish articles on the magazine, but you’ll also get to treat yourself with video content that includes exclusive footage of their shoots and in-depth interviews.
They kicked off the launch with a huge party at White Space along Pasong Tamo, which featured also the introduction and launch as well of the BMW Z4. Another cool highlight of the night was also the music courtesy of DJ Junior Sanchez, who is one of the legendary deejays to come out of New York City. In fact, when I once lived there in the early 90’s, I already knew of DJ Junior Sanchez, and had seen him spinning in house parties at SoHo.
Anyway, so Dj Junior Sanchez rocks a set that has everyone dancing away. Good vibes. And after his set DJ Mars Miranda closes off, and everyone is still going ballistic, including Dj Junior Sanchez, who seemed like he was having a blast. And certainly that was what everyone was having.
An overflow of food catered by Cibo Di M plus all-out open bar on Rene Barbier wines, San Miguel beer and some vodka and some whiskey. Nice for everyone indeed.
Big congratulations to Katrina Tuason, Miguel Mari and Josemari Ugarte for the huge success of the Rogue New Media launch.
Do I have to list the who’s who of who went? Nahhh! As if we need our names published ala high-society style. You knew that if you were there, then you wouldn’t complain. Good party. Period.
