I found this photo of a polaroid I took exactly one year ago today. It’s a picture of Kristy and I at Courtney’s birthday in Gunpo, South Korea. Ahh… good times. (I figure that if you can read Korean, you can know my real name.) Speaking of the lovely Kristy, I got a care package [...]
I’m leaving in an hour for the The Roots concert – their first performance in Seoul. I’m meeting Ras, Brad, Eddie, and one other at Gwangnaru station (line 5). It’s an expensive show, with general admission at 88,000 won and reserved seating at 110,000, which includes drinks and finger foods. We bought the reserved seats. [...]

In May of this year, I was asked by Joe SeoulPodcast (and ZenKimchi) if I would be a guest on his show. I agreed and we recorded a 2+ hour show on a Wednesday night through Skype. It’s hard to admit, but I never mentioned it on my blog because 1) I don’t like hearing [...]
