  • Codex 33

    A new episode of the Codex (33) is up, another entry in the alphabet series. And while I have your attention, let me mention that this Wednesday (June 29) is PechaKucha Night in Tokyo Vol. 83 at SuperDeluxe, and it’s looking like a great lineup. 

  • Codex 32

    A new episode of the Codex (32) is up, for your listening pleasure — a mix of old and new, with a bit of concentrated nerdiness at the end.

  • PauseTalk Vol. 51

    Let me start by again thanking everyone who attended last week’s PauseTalk Vol. 51. It was a terrific night, and one of the most spirited discussions we’ve had in a while — I had to reign it in a few times, which is absolutely fine. For some reason, as the cafe manager told me, a…

We decided to head to Mitake mountain, and took a cable car up (pictured above), with the idea of walking down (we didn’t really have time to walk both ways). It…

  • PauseTalk Next Week

    PauseTalk Vol. 50 didn’t mark the end of anything, on the contrary, we kick off a new era — well, numerically speaking at least — with Vol. 51 this coming Monday (June 6) at Cafe Pause. As always, the cafe is reserved from 19:30, and the official session will kick off at 20:00. Come on…
