Would you like a new face to face a new day?

Aldus, gisteren heb ik voor de verandering eens gepoogd sociaal te doen. Toen ik in de UB aan m'n scriptie aan 't werken was, zag ik namelijk dat NIEMAND MINDER DAN Gordon (lolz) een optreden zou geven voor de Inkom op de markt. De inkom is een soort huge 3 daags feest voor de eerstejaars, waarbij ze kennis kunnen maken met Maastricht en haar alcohol. Irgendwo, fan die ik ben van Joling besloot ik maar eens op zoek te gaan naar Gordon. Eenmaal op de markt aangekomen was er een of andere rare gebroeders-ko achtige..band? bezig, maar ik besloot toch maar te blijven en even de AH binnen te lopen voor 'n alfatje.

Toen ik de AH uit kwam waren de gebroeders-niet-ko gelukkig klaar, en begon een of ander ethnic pop bandje, wat best okay was. Maar om me heen kijkend vroeg ik me al af wat de fuck ik daar deed. Ik was omringd door DUH HUH NOGGENEEEUUUKTOFNIET studentenballen, vereeeenigingshjonnen en, jawel, hawte chicks. Dus dan sta je daar in je eentje zielig te nerden met je bier, terwijl je niemand aanspreekt want OHNOEZ SOCIALE FAAL -.-' Zelfs toen een chick voor me uitgebreid verleid werd door een of andere gast die er zelf uitzag als een van de gebroeders ko en haar veel cutesere vriendin als gevolg verveeld en rondkijkend erbij stond wist ik nog niet wat ik moest zeggen en na 'n uur ben ik maar op de fiets gestapt en naar huis gefietst..

I should just become a hikkikomori.

    Aaahw. :(
    Overigens maakt t in de meeste gevallen helemaal niet uit wat je zegt (“lolz de gebroeders-niet-ko”), maar dát je iets zegt.

    Mehhh ik had dat ook zo vaak in Schotland ;_; Als ik de moed had probeerde ik het met “studeer je hier ook?” en als dat niet lukte greep ik naar de alchohol of ging ik ook weg XD Social awkwardness is awkward

#가을 인데 왜 #겨울 느낌 밖에 안 나?

It's supposedly #fall in #Korea but...it feels a lot like #winter.

#창덕궁 #Changdeokgung #Palace #서울 #옛날 #전통 #역사 #한국 #Korean #KoreanPalace #Seoul #traditional #history #autumn You know, when it comes to the '#audiophile' #earbuds market, a lot of recommended #headphones are actually from China. The reason is that most Western companies have given up on earbuds in favor of #IEM, so basically it's either cheap no-brand crap or apple #earphones.

Thankfully, some of the Chinese offerings are actually just as great as people's online raving suggests; The #Yuin #PK3 is almost decade old now, but still delivers the best #audio quality I've heard in an earbud for under $50, and the #Edifier #P180 is seriously such a giant step up from your garden variety earbuds at a price of only 12 bucks that I can't understand why they aren't more popular.

The #Auglamour #RX1 was a complete and utter disappointment with tinny #sound I never expected after all the positive talk about it on #Headfi though. Seems like most of the budget from the $22 price went into the packaging, which is admittedly quite pretty.

Of course my main pair of headphones, the #Koss #Portapro - which hasn't changed at all in design since 1984 because they are just THAT good - isn't Chinese but good ol' Murrikan, and I always love taking them out even though they make my head look huge in compassion to their small footprint.

The #JVC #HAFXC51 were tauted as amazing IEMs back when I got them but although they don't sound bad, I just can't get used to having those little pieces of plastic lodged so deeply into my ear canal.. So..thank God for #China, I guess. 
For helping old-fashioned men like me find ways to still comfortably enjoy their #music.

#Korea #SouthKorea #Seoul #traditional #wood #ZuidKorea #Namsangol #Hanok #ancient #trees #green #home #서울 #남산골 #한옥 #자연 #전통 #나무 #한국 So glad I finally stopped wondering why I never go to any #concerts in #Korea and just got up and went to one.

@emuartspace was probably the most 'homely' (#gezellig) venue I've ever visited, @bowhang_smacksoft was as impressive as expected, @imhyeonjeong enchanted me with her beautiful voice and the duet of @musicsollee (거꾸로도 #이솔이) and #조현정 made me wish they'd spend more time together.

It might be a bit more work trying to find concerts here, but it's definitely worth it.

who split himself in two.
The one part never changed at all;
the other grew and grew.

The changeless part was always true,
The growing part was always new,
And I wondered, when the tale was through,
Which part was me, and which was you.
