Seoul Flea Market

Seoul Flea Market

A few weeks ago, I went to Seoul Flea Market to find weird, old Korean stuff to hang on my walls. I suffered a case of what my friend Tina calls IKEA Syndrome — in which one spend hours browsing and collecting, only to leave everything mere inches from the check-out due to overstimulation — […]

On Deck

On Deck

On Deck this weekend: Wine, cheese. Rain. Therefore, couch + book. Paella & tapas in Hongdae. [Perhaps a flamenco lesson, as well.] Korean Rock-a-billy. [No, really.] A big fat lantern parade. Lomo Shop. I hope your weekend is really, really…


Perfect Sunday

The Perfect Sunday A Report by Stephanie Cornell Early morning run along the river to Okkervill River and Bon Iver Old men gathered in clusters playing MahJongg and Dominoes Small pig-tailed children bowing and waving “annyong” on the street Sweet, fragrant lilacs bursting everywhere Stumbling on the garden of a shrine, in full bloom Stumbling on yet another […]

Before I had furniture I had tchatchkes, breakfast, a view, a mismatched collection of books and a roll of Fuji 400H in my camera.

More than any other place I’ve lived, it […]

This is how Seoul is making up for it the second time around.


Akeru

Akeru

AKERU. Japanese. To end, to begin, to pierce, to start, to expire, to unwrap, to turn over, to close and to open.


Palace Schmalace

Palace Schmalace

So yesterday I went a-palacing with my friends Arliss and Erin and their friend YoungMi. I have been rather hell-bent on seeing Changdeokgung Palace because there is a Secret Garden on the palace grounds. I don’t know about you, but anything that has the word “Secret” in it is somewhere I want to go. My […]

three of us., originally uploaded by youngdoo.   It’s true that I prattle on about Flickr and its virtues. It’s true that I use such superlative proclamations as “Flickr has changed my life” and “If I could make-out with a website, I would make-out with Flickr.” But it is also true that Flickr has brought […]
