Ade Magnaye is a Manila-based humor blogger, who writes in the pursuit of what he calls “teh lulz”. He has also gained some notoriety with his scathing review of Pinoy boyband 1:43’s debut single, “Merry Christmas Na.” In reality, Ade simply writes to help save himself, and possibly many others, thousands of pesos (or dollars) in therapy bills. Posting articles ranging from hilarious mock interviews to personal favorites and pet peeves to an [un]graciously peculiar advice column and, finally, to just about ANYTHING, the goal of his blog can be simplified to this: to spread some much needed internet-sourced laughter.
As you can see, he rarely updates his blog nowadays. It’s because Ade is
struggling with his crippling alcoholism playing bass and writing songs for Pinoy indie pop band RomCom. Ade is also a comic book enthusiast and he writes about it in Comicgasm, What’s A Geek, and Geekout. Oh yeah, he also does social media work. He’s pretty good, too. Ade thinks this is the greatest achievement of the late 20th century. Ade also likes to speak in the third person.
