| STAFF — I have a lot of thoughts. Some randomly pop into my head. They are influenced by myriad sources. They come. They go. Some are resolved. Some aren’t. This is a list: April, 8, 2017: Tonight I was informed about a “president” of a cultural association in Vancouver who does not come from […]

Yuna – Crush ft. Usher

| STAFF – “Crush” is a February 2016 release from Malaysian singer-songwriter superstar Yuna and features American RnB icon, Usher.

Singapore Cares – Signs

| STAFF – Singapore is the poster child for economic miracles. Once part of Malaysia, ideological differences led to separation in 1965 and the two embarked on two very different growth paths with Singapore vastly outpacing the hinterland (not to mention many other nations) by leaps and bounds in numerous economic categories. As I wandered […]

Hanoi – Value Eats – Sticky Rice Bowls

| STAFF – Hanoi is many things. Search online and you’ll find lists upon lists of positive, often superlative, descriptors. To me, I’ll say it’s my favorite city in Southeast Asia and one of the reasons is its cheap, high-quality food. At an eatery called Xoi Yen, near the pleasant and value-for-money lodgings play Golden […]

MidiStar, Music, Humans and the Brain

  | A while back, in a talk I had with a friend, I brought up how peculiar it is that humans derive energy from very specific, mathematically linked arrangements of sound and movement. How is it that we enjoy one sequence of sounds in a given song yet are unnerved by a different series […]
