Episode 108 – FLAM: TFAL talks music and drinking games with Greg Narvas

In this mini episode the TFAL crew get to know artist and musician Greg Narvas. Greg Narvas is the creator of the zine “I Was a Teenage Filipino Skinhead” and is the drummer and percussionist for the ska band Hepcat. Inspired by AZN FLUSH, a drinking game, Greg realized that there could be a Filipino American equivalent and set out to to create FLAM. Listen as the TFAL crew plays FLAM over whiskey and a few bottles of San Miguel. FYI if you have little ones in the car you may want to wait on listening to this one. The alcohol leads to a few f-bomb slips!

You can also catch Hepcat at Punk Rock Bowling in Downtown Las Vegas on Friday, May 22 at Bunkhouse Saloon. It’ll be a night of rocksteady ska, reggae, and northern soul.  This show should be rad since it is also the Punk Rock Bowling debut of Bad Manners!

 

Episode 107 – CENSUS-maryosep 2020

CORRECTION: Contrary to what was discussed in the episode, there is no “long” or “short” form in the Census. The 2020 Census will only have nine questions. The “long” and “short” form discussed refers to the American Community Survey (ACS), not the 2020 Census. Additionally, the 2020 Census will NOT ask for income. Apologies for the oversight.

Census-maryosep, Census 2020 is coming!

Historically, Filipino Americans (like many other communities of color) tend to be under-counted. In our effort to make sure our community is heard, we dedicated this mini-episode to the importance of the Census to the Filipino American community.  How does it help us?  What can Census data tell us about our lives as Filipino Americans?  How many Filipinos are in the Dallas-Fort Worth area?  Find out all these answers and more on this episode!

Also, here’s a PSA targeting the Filipino American community that you can share with your friends and family:

Please note that this is not a paid-advertisement by the Census.  (We missed that funding train a while back!).  Nonetheless, we still wanted to do our part in spreading the word about this very important event!
