Reading today’s listserve reminded me not long ago, one of my coworkers asked me if I am a feminist. My answer was no. I am not concerned particularly about women’s rights.

Honestly speaking, gender is the last...

Sorry, the album's sold out.
Earlier this month I covered Naomi Punk on Wooozy. I first heard of the name while I was still in Brooklyn, but it was not until my friend Zaza told me they play awesome live that I decided to give them a listen. So I went to their bandcamp, there was only one album but all the songs from that album were free to stream, with a link that directed you to buy the vinyl record. It was out in April but...

POLY: The Cake Shop needs your help →
polychronicus: For a variety of reasons, I tend to dislike pleas for crowd-sourced help for the arts. I’m not against the method of funding all together, but its become a lazy and indulgent means in many cases. This is not one of those cases. As the New York Times reports, the Cake Shop has fallen on… Ah, I even haven’t got a chance to go there!
I’m Asian. I’m mysterious. Deal with it.– My New Favorite Quote

The my little airport lyrics translation project,...
my little airport (pay attention to the LOWERCASES) is an indie pop duo from Hong Kong. P and Nicole knew each other since college and they started doing some bedroom recording ever since. They have 4 albums so far, most of their songs are very short, catchy melodies (tweeeeeee!). However, what impressed me most is the lyrics which, with few exceptions, were all written by P. I’ve never...
After Argument is a project by Haisong Yang, the singer of Beijing-based band P.K.14, and Zaza Zhang, drummer of the now split-up Paris-based band Eyes Behind.
Digital Music Copyright in China. Is this research topic too general or ambitious? Will I be ashamed of what I find? Will this paper end up in embarrassment? Will I not be able to graduate? How many laws will I have to read? What if that survey is not designed good enough to catch a diverse enough group of people in terms of what music they listen to since the only people I know pretty much listen...
