We’re on Wikipedia!

I still can’t believe it. But this is what Wikipedia is all about. It is your real-time history book. It will not miss developments about certain topics, personalities, and in this case, a popular Filipino band in the 1990s. Someone out there will eventually add information to it. Curiously, I went to check the Eraserheads on Wikipedia. And viola, there it was, a long entry on the launch of this book with annotations. Based on Wikipedia’s history, it was Perryv who made this entry. Thanks a lot, and I hope they find this blog soon, haha.

On February 28, 2007, the official launch of the book Tikman Ang Langit: An Anthology on the Eraserheads (2007) was held at the second level of Powerbooks bookstore in Greenbelt 3, Makati City.[19][20] The launch was accompanied by acoustic performances by Cambio (whose members include Raimund Marasigan, Buddy Zabala and Kris Gorra-Dancel), Markus Hiway (Marcus Adoro’s band), and Lei Bautista of Prettier Than Pink.[19] The performers covered Eraserheads songs such as “Ligaya” (performed by Lei Bautista),[21] “With A Smile” (also performed by Bautista)[21] and “Magasin” (performed by Cambio with Marcus Adoro).[19] The event was dubbed a mini-reunion of the Eraserheads, with Marasigan, Zabala and Adoro performing together for the first time in four years.[19] Ely Buendia did not attend because of a scheduled meeting with his surgeon and the manufacturers of the stents in his heart.[20] The launch was attended by around 50 people.[19]

Tikman ang Langit is a collection of essays about the Eraserheads originally written by fourteen journalists who are mostly fans of the band.[19][20] The book itself was compiled by Melvin Calimag and Jing Garcia, with a foreword by Eraserheads producer Robin Rivera.[19][22] Tikman Ang Langit is considered to be the first published material about any Filipino band in the Philippines.[19]
