    End of the Guidebook 2?

    Share this: Earlier in 2013 I wrote “The End of the Guidebook?”, inspired by the BBC’s sale of Lonely Planet (LP) and some other stories I read around the same time regarding the future of traditional printed guidebooks.

    Musical Cycles

    Share this: I love music. This has been the case for as long as I can remember. My first device for playing back music was a plastic Looney Toons record player, then a small portable cassette player with which I listened to Blondie’s Call Me and Village People hits incessantly, usually with my strap-on roller skates bolted to my Battlestar...

  7. Smartphonitis

    Smartphonitis

    Share this: Anyone who’s been outside of their cave in the last couple of years has noticed it. A creeping change, shift in social behavior, perhaps even an ailment of sorts. Walking around like zombies they are – partially aware of the goings on in their surroundings, but regularly fading into another dimension. While they can still walk and move...

  8. Ten Nineties

    Ten Nineties

    Share this: No Top 10 list can ever be definitive or the best as they’re entirely subjective. One’s taste in music is much like evaluating art – there’re different styles and pieces that appeal to individuals, individually.

Asian cultures do a much better job of this than western ones, where kids typically move out around university-time or shortly thereafter. Asians stereotypically live together until a child gets married and sometimes they continue to reside together even after. When...
