After a very long hiatus, I decided to give this little corner of the web a much-needed re-boot. I've been working as a sub-editor for a monthly art and lifestyle mag here in Hong Kong for about half a year now covering wine and mostly large-scale art exhibitions such as Art Basel, but neglected my writing outside of that- tried to write for other blogs, but flopped partly due to not making the time, partly due to motivation/anxiety/silliness- been a non-conducive headspace to anything productive or creative for a bit.
I did make a compilation/porfolio of my other online work though.
But now, no excuses! I've been wanting to showcase some exciting artists and inspirations both from Melbourne and HK here, and have some interviews with a few artists done up already.
A few things I like lately: Word Crimes by Weird Al
It's really fun- both for the lyrics (perfect for writers/editors and English teachers) and use of animation/typography.
Caring is Creepy by the Shins
This song is a perfect mix of memorable lyrics and wistfulness.
It seems to be about the nature of words and truthfulness? But I'm not 100% sure. It's also super catchy.
Fly the Colour Fantastica
The Colour Fantastica is a project started by a few of the people I did Stage Fright with including Viet-My Bui - a charity art event I was involved with in 2012.
It looks super awesome and I can't wait to see the end results.
