An Interview with Apple, Star of Cartoon Network’s Apple & Onion

You’re never too old for a first time. I’ve interviewed many celebrities as a writer but this is the first time that I’ll be talking to a cartoon character. The character is Apple, one-half of Cartoon Network’s new series Apple & Onion. Here, he and Onion move to the city and see what it’s all about. The show is created by George Gendi (I also got to interview him), who also worked on The Amazing World of Gumball and Sanjay and Craig. I got to talk to Apple and he shared his secret to coming up with songs right away, his other BFF, and how long he buffs his head to keep it shiny. Yes, really.

An Interview with George Gendi, Creator of Cartoon Network’s Apple & Onion

Most of us grew up watching cartoons, but there came a point in life when we eased ourselves out of the habit and moved to grownup things like dramas, trashy (yet entertaining reality shows), and fascinating documentaries. Recently, there has been a shift back to cartoons as the new shows took on a more adult approach wrapped in the colorful world of animation. One of the shows that I’m excited to catch is Cartoon Network’s Apple & Onion, which tells the adventures of, well, Apple and Onion, two characters who move into the big city. The show is created by George Gendi, who also worked on The Amazing World of Gumball and Sanjay and Craig. I got to chat with Gendi, who shared with me how the show got started, the development process, and deeper meanings. I also got to talk to Apple here.

You Can Now Transfer Money From GCash to 30+ Banks

As a freelancer, it’s important for me to have options for transferring money. My clients have different payment methods and some of them don’t offer direct-to-bank deposits, which is usually the case for foreign clients. Thankfully, one of the most popular non-bank payment methods is GCash, a mobile wallet controlled by a smartphone. Now, GCash has made it easier because you can now transfer money to more than 30 banks.

Buy Clothes From Levi’s and You Can Customize Them For Free!

A few nights ago, I was having a quick dinner at a fastfood chain when I saw two guys wearing identical outfits. They both wore the same long-sleeved blue checkered dress shirt, a pair of pants, and leather shoes. It looked like a uniform but the thing was, they didn’t know each other. I don’t think they even noticed they had a doppelganger. They just went about their business while I quietly watched them.

Of course, there’s nothing wrong with seeing someone in identical clothes but it can either be awkward or hilarious. If that’s not your thing and you’d rather be the only one wearing a particular style of clothing, you can buy from Levi’s and have it customized at the Levi’s Tailor Shop.
