The Kimchi-ite: A 1000-Year-Old Temple In The Middle Of Seoul -
My latest post over at Gadling is about this serene temple in the mountains of Seoul.
The rise of electronic music in America is great because all these hundreds of thousands of kids going to festivals in Vegas and New York— wearing furry boots, living the rave dream— are binge-drinking music. They don’t care about quality— it’s about the epic build and formulaic comedown. But five years from now, they’re going to stop that, and there’s a good chance that 20% of them will stick around and start finding avenues towards Aphex Twin, Kraftwerk and Basic Channel. That’s going to be an influx of people who are going to make this music last longer and be relevant. — Matthew Dear
Last week I started a regular column at the travel blog Gadling called “The Kimchi-ite.” It’s about life in Korea and will be a bi-weekly kind of deal. As of right now there are three posts. An introduction, “Culture Shock” and “Life as a Foreigner in Asia.”

I’m turning 25 tomorrow and thought it might be fun to attempt to complete a set of 25 projects before I turn 26. Some are too easy, some are slightly too ambitious, I’d like to do them all.
Moving to Seoul next week! -
And the long-form blog is back in full effect.

Generally speaking, anyone who names their child Johnathan/Jonathon unfortunately misspelled it.
Also, John and Jonathan are not the same name, they are of different languages and have different meanings.
