Deal Breaker – Teaser Trailer

Hey guys,

Long time no see, homies! So if anyone’s still reading this, I apologize for being so MIA lately. School schedule picked up and so did a ton of projects. My bad. BUT, it’s summer time now, and the living’s easy so I got nothing to do but get back on my editing grind. Which I have started to do! But not on the Chris & Kev eps or the Spain vids. As of late, people have been graduating left and right (but not me!) and I have to move out of my place in a grand total of 12 days, and on top of all that Chris’ and my buddy from Paris, Erwan, who so graciously provided us a couch to surf when we were in his city, is staying with us here in California (shoutout to couchsurfing.org here).

In the past few weeks, I acted in a couple plays, wrote another, and wrote/directed a short film. Right now, the last sucker’s in the editing process, but I’ve had time enough to crank out a teaser trailer for yall’s viewing pleasure. Please enjoy, and I’ll try and keep up more regularly for the next few months. Happy summer, friends.

See you soon,

Kev.

Chris & Kev and co. – Glow in the Dark Ping Pong

A couple of weeks ago me and Chris pulled off quite possibly our greatest achievement to date (aside from being born). One day Chris called me up and we had a conversation I only now vaguely remember, mainly cuz I was napping for most of it. About 3 hours later I called him back and realized I had agreed to help him quarterback this idea he had for the Variety Show on campus. It was a staged ping pong show. But it was glow in the dark. And we were floating.

No problem, right? Well, kind of a problem. We literally went through hell to put it up: people dropping out, having to paint and build everything, broken lights, broken limbs. What we ended up putting out there was actually our first ever run with all the pieces in place. And while it definitely shows, it still is pretty cool to watch, and it was all worth it.

Please enjoy what I like to call Chris’ baby, and my godchild. Thanks again. =)

Huge shoutouts to Lexi, Annelise, Anna, Parisa, and Ponch for being the ballers in black.

Chris & Kev go to Whitey’s Castle 1.7 – “The End All Pee All”

Happy Spring Break!!! It’s been difficult to find any free time to edit. And it looks like I’m only gonna get busier next quarter, so I hope you guys are as grateful as I am for the weeklong break. Over the week off, I’ve had time to practice being homeless, increase my movie acquisitions and watchings, AND I had time for this little bad boy here!

I SWEAR I’m still working on getting up Spain vids too, but the next one is about La Merce festival, and anyone who was there with me knows, trying to edit that thing is chaotic at best.

For now though, allow me to present the culmination of the past 4 or so episodes. We’ve been building up so much for this moment, so hopefully you find it worth your while. And if you don’t, well, asi es la vida. Last we left you, Chris and I had settled on a little wager for his pee pee dilemma. If he can contain his urine in a 20oz. water bottle, I would run around in my underwear upon arrival at Lexi’s house. If not, vice versa. Then, pulling off to the side of the road, we got stuck in the mud, and that added a whole separate adventure and episode. And on top of ALL THAT, we only had about 2 hours left on our self-set deadline to get to LA. As you’ll see in later Europe episodes, Chris & I taking something so seemingly simple and idiotproof and finding out a way to overcomplicate it is something of a talent of ours. But thankfully, it only benefits you all, as you get to enjoy our ever-present struggles.

Now, with no further ados, setbacks, fakeouts, unexpected occurrences or the like, please allow this next episode to only add to the wonderful joy and bliss that is Spring Break.

And thanks again.

Chris & Kev go to Whitey’s Castle 1.6 – “In Deep Doodoo”

Yeah, yeah…I know. We lied. We teased. We got you all hot and bothered to see some pee pee action, then we left you with blue balls. I’m not gonna lie…we’re not sorry. Partly because it worked pretty perfectly, if I say so myself. But mostly because, as you are about to see in this episode, we definitely got slapped across the face by the palm of karma as soon as possible. Seriously. We got what we deserved, and now you get to enjoy it. Lesson learned. We shan’t ever lie to you guys again. I mean, unless it produces stories as good as this.

With that, here’s to comeuppance, and here’s to your amusement. Because it matters to us.

Thanks again. Enjoy.

AAAAAAND WE’RE BAAAACK!!! Chris & Kev go to Whitey’s Castle 1.5 – “The Phallusion”

FINALLY! At long last, after a healthy winter hiatus, Chris and I are back at it! This is the first episode edited since returning stateside, so it definitely feels good to get back on the grind. When you last saw us, Chris was all set to pee in a tiny bottle in a moving vehicle, but I convinced him to pull over to the side of the road to settle this bet of ours. And now, after MONTHS of anticipation, the dozen or so of you who actually do watch these things will finally know the answer to the question: Can an ordinary water bottle contain the venom of a brownaconda??? Watch, find out, and then come back soon for more.

Enjoy. =)

Barçablog Cuatro – No Smiles

So 6 days back and I’m already homesick. And real sick. Like bedridden for days and relentless fever sick. But I’m on the mend, and endless amounts of free time has given me the liberty to explore all kinds of pursuits…like playing the piano, and editing these videos at an alarmingly rapid rate. Like, for real. I just took a Therafllu NIGHTTIME, and I’m still going…at 6:30am. Thank you, fever. You got me on a hot streak. We’ll see how many more of these I can get out before school and my good health inevitably set in and productivity slows once more.

But for now, enjoy the benefits of my recent illness! This is still way back in September, when all was still so fresh and new. We had a group trip to the region of Castilla y León in Spain, class mandated and all. The bus ride over was quite the adventure, what with most of us hung over and 12 hours of driving (and STOPPING) to kill. For the rest of the week we were mostly learning about Art History for our pre-semester course, so a lot of building tours that soon grew boring and deciding whether or not something was clásico. I will say this, though…Gustavo Vega, our professor for Art History, he was the guy Dos Equis’ “Most Interesting Man in the World” wishes he could be. Seriously. Watch for him in the video…you can’t miss him. He’s THAT interesting.

All that learning nonsense aside, we still did manage to have some good times on the group trip. Epic bus rides, swing competitions, an insane group dinner at an indian restaurant that I failed to capture on video, photo shoots, and a chinese restaurant in Spain made for some great adventures.

Miss you guys already. Enjoy the video.

Thanks again,

Kev

Dear Lexi,

NOTICE: The following video was made for the sole purpose of making Lexi cry.

Okay…so “sole” is maybe too strong a word, but “primary” wouldn’t be far off. Anyway, way back in August, as you might have seen in the last Chris & Kev video, Chris and I had this ingenious plan to take our videos of the drive down, and then edit them together in viewable webisodes to be released once a week. Now, had we succeeded in our idealistic plan, this video would have been PERFECTLY planned to be released this week. But alas, I must now remind you that we are Filipinos, and are thus operating on Filipino time, which states that we must be late for any and all appointments or deadlines, and should it be something for a close friend, well then the only understood and acceptable terms of completion are sometime before one party’s life has ended.

That being the case, I found it necessary to expedite the editing process on this next video, because, frankly, once Lexi gets back, this video’s message loses a lot of its luster. Therefore, we’re skipping ahead about 18 hours on the Chris & Kev timeline to Lexi’s going away party.

This video isn’t exactly a Chris & Kev episode, I have to admit. No shenanigans here. Well, mostly none.

Now Lexi, I know you’ve been wishing you could stay longer in Canterbury like I wanted to stay in Barcelona, but this might help ease the blow of coming back somewhat. This little video might pack a wallop, so go get your Kleenex, grab the cuddliest thing you got over there, and make sure your closest English friends are at hand, lest you find yourself TRAPPED IN A GLASS CASE OF EMOTION.

Enjoy the video, and enjoy your last few days across the pond, amiga! We’ll see you in a few =)

Adieu,

Kev
