A BEAUTIFUL MACHINE
   HIS BLOG. A Mecca of eyegasmic photo manipulations. 
            — I’ll take you back that one fine evening when my room mate showed me this tumblog he came acrossed. Just like a tumblr newbie, i was at awe with every single photos posted. But just like any tumblr homies, this is the blog that deserves a slot in my dash. Follow that bastard! Through keen observation brought by curiosity as to who this creative guy is, i learned that he is a friend of a friend of mine. And with all the chances in front of me, i texted this friend of mine (let’s call him beben-eleben). I asked him if we could set a meeting with this guy. Beben assured that the meeting will happen, for he is scheduled to do a photoshoot with him, for a portfolio he was planning. I just found myself riding a bus on my way to Balagtas, Batangas, off to beben’s humble abode. That day, all the worlds collided, and right before my very eyes, this guy (let’s call him Ariel Magyawe Jr.) is in action. I must say, Ariel was one of the most (if not, the most) humble tumblrista that I met. He have no idea that he’s doing magic with his creations. And that with these creations, he is earning our admirations to his talent, that following him on tumblr isn’t enough to prove it. Believe it or not, he told me that he follows back right away everytime someone follows him. Walang simoy ng kahit na anong hangin sa utak ng taong ito. With all his excuses in our aim to pursue this issue, (excuses regarding him helping out his siblings with school works) I learned that Ariel is a family guy. I keep on telling him this, Y U SO HUMBLE!? Isa si Ariel sa pinakamabait na taong nakilala ko. It’s through his eyes and through his actions, two things that just won’t lie.
            In a span of three months, we at Tumblr Mag will be celebrating our first anniversary. Every month we strive to make every cover as remarkable as possible, and always better than the previous ones. What we want to achieve before we turn a year older, is to  put a highlight on people we would like everyone here in tumblr to discover. In our 10th issue,  tumblrmagazineaims to hunt down the unheralded young minds of tumblr and filter out the reasons why you should check their tumblogs out. We will collate some of the deepest, weirdest (even the darkest) secrets of your resident tumblristas. 
            Also in this issue, we’ll get to know one stranger that you just can’t ignore, fierce and compact, juvenile and nonchalant to all the tumblr fuck ups, MaikhoFranco. Magnifying his tumblog will be our tumblr mag insider, Pael (@bulalakawblues). 
            Plus! The hit comic, Ate Gay and why it took him forever to pull our funny string. With his witty mashup of old and modern songs, no one can hold his breath and avoid bursting to laughter. We will also feature the famous showbiz insider and blogger byxspeaks, straight from twitter landia, and all the hullabaloos happening in the entertainment industry today. And for this month’s tumblr project, we will squeeze out all the positive reinforcement and introduce to you some random tumblrista and give you reasons why you should stalk them out. 
            Over a cup of Starbucks coffee jelly that Ariel gave me, I gave birth to this issue. An issue of Discovery. That in life, we are always on a journey to figure out something. The world will show us everything. The world will make us experience everything. The world allows us to discover everything. All we have to do is take a leap.

P.S.  Special thanks to PAEL (@bulalakawblues), for without him, this dream cover won’t be possible. To the collaboration we had in coming up with this layout and other insights, i owe him a lot. It took us a lot of drafts and scanned handwritings just for the perfect “THE DISCOVERY ISSUE” to grace the cover. Also, to Beben (@beben-eleben), for helping me out meeting our cover boy for the month.
