It was at a Gloria Jean's. We had a blueberry cheesecake and iced mocha to share -- not that these details were important. There were other important things, like the imminent sob-fest I was entering. "T", I began. "I really think I'm going to fail." The last word came out in a ragged breath, leaving my lips [...]
I'm feeling the lowest I've ever been since...my last worst-I've-ever-been, and that's because I kind of have been neglecting the idea of taking measures to not neglect my mental health. Ooh. Double negatives and double negligence. That can never be good.

I was most obliged and intrigued to save this quote (by "Unknown") because of the immediate disagreement I had with it. Why is happiness defined by your [...]
ORANGECOVE released We Are Infinite on November 23rd. This has been the only time I'd willingly listen to people drag out the syllables of the word 'Infinite', because ORANGECOVE does it hella smoothly - the song is one of the best chill tracks I've heard this year.

Charlie Lim (@wherewascharlie) and Jasper Tan (@vilecorpses) have been two people that I admired for a long time. And I was having a long (re: shitty as hell) day, thinking that I'd end up living life as a zero-sum game. I've listened to Charlie Lim before - he's a fixture on my Spotify 'favourites', 'quiet', [...]

Has there been a more perfect band-brand dynamic? pop!SUGAR had reached out to me prior to the release of their debut single, “Taste the Rainbow”, which charted on the Spotify playlists of New Music Friday Singapore, Indonesia, Hong Kong, Philippines, Taiwan, Malaysia and Vietnam.

I am not rich, nor crazy, but I am Asian. Kevin Kwan needs to complete NS.
Just five minutes ago, I was thinking of how to answer to an artist friend (who I greatly respect, by the way! Her work can be found here). The month of June brings a crazy number of things that I need to do regarding the production of Issue 5: AMO, ARMOUR for Carpe Bloom. We're embarking [...]
