Open Dorm Concert! November 5, 2015

November 5 was a really special and memorable night. It was one of  those nights I feel lucky to be living my rather abnormal life. I love it when two of my interests converge, and that’s exactly what happened on November 5.

The Not-So-Sacred Radio Show Interview – Nov. 30, 2015

 2015 was a year in which I made quite a lot of connections with some really wonderful people who share my interest in cults and predators. Janaki is one such kindred soul. We’ve done a few podcasts together now, but this is the first time just the two of us talked for 2 hours. We actually recorded an interview months earlier, but the quality of the resulting audio file was too low for some reason. Continue reading “The Not-So-Sacred Radio Show Interview – Nov. 30, 2015”

4-Week Weight Loss Challenge: Week 1!

I was told at a recent health check-up that I am 10 kilograms overweight.  In my defence, I know I have higher than average muscle mass, but yes, I could still lose some weight. Furthermore, despite regular exercise, my weight has ever-so-slowly been creeping up of late. Fortunately, 2Much’s founding singer Ian is also endeavouring to lose weigh as is a friend of his. Hence, a challenge was born. We weighed in last night, and our goals are to lose 5 kilograms over the next four weeks. The rules are simple, if you don’t lose the weight, you have to hand over 100,000 won. Continue reading “4-Week Weight Loss Challenge: Week 1!”
