William Perry Moore to Judge the Global Asian Awards

WPM To Judge The Global Asian Creative Awards!

Weeeeell this should be most excellent!  I was asked to be a Music judge for the Global Asian Creative Awards!   There's still time for any Asian filmmakers, screenwriters, artists, musicians, and writers to send out their submissions!  And I shall gloriously judge yoooou! *cue evil laughter*  Well, specifically I'll be judging the music portion.  You can find me under Judge Judgey Judgerson aka Will.

Why You, Will? You shut your beautiful mouth when you talk to me!  In all seriousness, I'm half-Filipino and Scottish and was the lead guitarist for The Slants.  You can read all about it in my band's section.  A number of the members were mixed-race, electro-rock-loving maniacs, with ethnic backgrounds ranging all over Asia and we ran under the WPM The Slants
banner of "The Slants."   The band's legal dispute with the Trademark Office over the usage of the band name "The Slants" gained notoriety as the band took the dispute all the way to the Supreme Court!  It was having pride in our Asian heritage and not letting someone tell us that we can't do something we want just because of being Asian.   So we gave the finger to "the man" all while playing rock n roll.

It was because of The Slants that I felt comfortable leaning into my Filipino heritage and creating The Adarna.

As a musician, I've dedicated my whole adult life to performing, writing, teaching, and producing.  Not to mention, I just loooove talking about it!  So why me?   Wouldn't you want to hear the opinion of someone like that?
