I don’t usually refer people to other sites on here but Fab.com warrants a mention. Once inside you’ll be very impressed with what they have. Almost all of the beautiful products they sell were designed by relatively unknown designers for really reasonable prices. Site functionality is some of the best I’ve seen.
I spent part of Sunday back in the Dadaepo Beach area. That’s where I was before, just couldn’t find the name of the place. Besides a really nice white sand beach there is a hiking area along the coast. On the hike you come to the historic Dadaepo Guest House. I read that in the Joseon period of Korean history the local magistrate paid respects to the King at this spot on the 1st and 15th of the lunar month. Foreign diplomats stayed here when they visited Korea.
I am in the process of putting together a website for a Busan salon. Bewitched Busan (www.BewitchedBusan.com).
S pent part of the day today at the beach. I can’t seem to find the name of it. It’s a very quiet spot offering some rare solitude. All I could hear were the waves and some guy playing the saxophone down the way somewhere. Some nice cafes have opened recently nearby. Dong… something… I think it’s called.
I am heading over to Japan for a weekend. Looking forward to enjoying the place as a tourist. There is a specific sushi restaurant in Fukuoka I’ll be heading to. I’ll be touching base with some people I haven’t seen in a very long time while I’m there. I’ve figured out that I could spend one weekend per month in Japan and still be able to save a nice little bit of money over the next year. Not sure if it will be a once a month thing but I will be visiting Japan often enough.
I’m in the process of digitizing years and years of rough creative notes. I’ve been carrying a whole bunch of writing scribbles around for ages now. Forgot about half the stuff. There’s an entire screenplay and a novella I completely forgot about. Some of it is pretty bad. Good concepts. Kind of look back and cringe at the style and quality of some of it. Something about living in Asia leads me back to the writing.
R idley Scott’s Blade Runner is my favourite film. Has been since the day I saw it the first time. Life In A Day, a documentary produced by Scott, is by far the best doc I’ve ever seen. This is a beautiful, beautiful movie.
