Austin City Limits 2015 (weekend 2), a reflection and reviewitslateagain

Tue, 13 Oct 2015 05:29:09 +0000

Alt-J rocking out at ACL 2015 Eight and a half years ago, I flew to California to attend Coachella with my friend Sushmita. I was 23. It was my first major music festival. I still held aspirations of being a journalist…god forbid, even a music critic. I wanted to say semi-profound things about culture. In […](image)

Interracial dating in China, or: Why are all these young Chinese girls dating older White men?itslateagain

Sat, 15 Mar 2008 04:08:17 +0000

I was at Mao, apparently the current “it” bar in Shanghai’s rapid turnover nightlife scene, with Judy and four girls living in the city. All were Chinese, one was from the Netherlands, one from Taiwan, and the other two were Shanghainese. All of them had (or normally have) foreign boyfriends: in this case, Dutch, Dutch […](image)

How to play “Naive” by the KooksitslateagainKooks

Thu, 14 Feb 2008 17:49:39 +0000

“Naive” is one of those songs that grabs you on the first listen. Allegedly composed by the Kooks lead singer, Luke Pritchard, whilst still in his mid-teens, it’s fantastically catchy, melodic and distinctly faithful to the great British band tradition. It can be found on their debut album, “Inside In/Inside Out.” A number of tabs […](image)

Review of “Crossing the Line” The Bookworm bookstore, Chengdu, China October 29, 2007 — “Crossing the Line,” screened as part of the Bookworm’s North Korea documentary film series, a finalist at the 2006 Sundance festival, provides a thoughtful, stylish portrait of the last remaining American defector still residing in North Korea. James Dresnok, a colorful […](image)

Media Populism, Lou Dobbs and hatemongeringitslateagain

Sat, 08 Sep 2007 05:18:43 +0000

The last mention of China I glimpsed before departing the United States was unintelligible. This is just as well, because I’m sure it would have made for a decidedly bitter parting note. It was a ‘news’ story on Lou Dobbs’ nightly transmission of hateful populism, part of an ongoing segment entitled “Red Storm Rising,” which […](image)

Tab of “Sacred Heart” by Cass McCombsitslateagainMorrossey with coiffeCass

Mon, 20 Aug 2007 18:27:32 +0000

I have been debating whether “Sacred Heart” by Cass McCombs is nothing but a lovely, derivative ode to Morrissey, or whether it’s good enough to stand on it’s own. Regardless, it’s a gorgeous tune, with a wonderfully kooky altar boy music video that fits Cass’ lyrics marvellously. Video below. Thanks to Carlos at ‘finally insane’ […](image)

Silverchair at the 9:30 club: July 24, 2007itslateagainSilverchair

Sun, 29 Jul 2007 00:09:43 +0000

This past Tuesday, one of Australia’s greatest bands, Silverchair, played a sold-out 9:30 club on the first leg of their American tour. They are promoting Young Modern, their fifth studio release and first album since 2002’s Diorama, which won the band six ARIA Awards (the Australian Grammies). They opened with a trio of new songs […](image)

Rafael Nadal, whose game continues to develop and mature on all surfaces, is finally here to give Roger Federer some competition. To which I say: About time! As incredible as it’s been to watch the young Swissman steam roll through grand slams as if the Roddicks and Hewitts of the world were beginner stage computer […](image)

Sat, 30 Jun 2007 16:24:59 +0000

I love typeface. I go through periods of hyper-sensitivity to various things: in high school, I obsessed over athletic shoes like Air Jordans and fancy runners; before that, I was extremely conscious of passing people’s bodyshapes. Now that I am in my twenties, I’ve moved past mere human beings to the fonts in which we […](image)

When I remember my years as a small boy, when the days that my knees were not afflicted by some updated graze or bruise of sorts were few and far between, I also think of grass seeds. As children, we are adept at analyzing our natural topography for its fun-ness factor. It’s part of the […](image)
