Tokyo’s most faded bookshop?

Tokyo, and Japan in general, has no shortage of wonderfully old and faded structures — an aspect of the country I’ve documented on my portfolio site here, as well as on my Instagram feed which is almost entirely dedicated to such scenery. These kinds of buildings, however, are far from equal, as this truly incredible example in the far west of Tokyo amply demonstrates. A local business that has textures and signage by the absolute bucket load. It’s one that’s still a going concern too, it just h...

Khosla GP launches Bling Capital to help seed-stage startups build products

At Facebook, where he was the first-ever director of platform, they called him Bling. At YouTube the following year, they still called him Bling. At Google in 2010, they continued to call him Bling. Even at Khosla Ventures, where Ben Ling has been a general partner for the past five years, the nickname stuck.

A Few Musings About Collecting

I've always wanted to be a collector. I have the gene. (Although I don't have quite enough organizing ability.) But I've never had the means, or the space (which are two aspects of the same thing). I've told this story on myself before, and it's embarrassing to me now, but it's also instructive. When I was young I was very interested in books. In Washington D.C. I befriended Bill Hale of William F. Hale books and his mentor across the street, the novelist Larry McMurtry. Larry was first a reader...

Pre-‘Force Awakens’ Luke Skywalker Art Reveals ‘The Last Jedi’ Story Was Always Going to Happen

Not to open up a can of worms, but one of the major complaints regarding Star Wars: The Last Jedi was the way the film handled Luke Skywalker’s story arc.

My new healthy lunch

Last week I decided to shake up my daily lunch – I eat the same thing every day, after a bulk prep on Monday – kept in the fridge then packed in tupperware. Used to be I had tuna sandwiches with salad, but I got worried about all the mercury. For a while it was mackerel, but I got tired of the taste. For a long time it was just chicken and mayo, with the bread getting phased out, until I was eating just chicken and salad every day. Not tasty. Probably not that great in terms of nutrition either....
