My Ten Favorite Anime Series

At work I like to organize some fun times at the end of every week — I even have a name for it, the “Friday Fluke.” Part of it is getting a drink, relaxing a bit with colleagues, and playing some games (our go-to tends to be various forms of Werewolf). Last week I introduced a new part to it, and that’s to encourage everyone to do a presentation about something they’re passionate about using the PechaKucha format. The idea is to have fun and get to know each other better, so it can be abou...

Best VPNs for China 2019 (that still work despite the ban)

Update April 2019: As many of you know, China spent a good portion of last year (2018) cracking down on VPN usage throughout the country and even threatened to ban all non-state sanctioned VPNs. Obviously, that hasn’t happened (expats are still using VPNs today). So what’s the deal? Do the best VPNs for China still work? As an expat who has spent over a decade in China, I’d like to offer my thoughts and recommendations. Sadly this website, like many others, has been blocked in China s...

Sony’s streaming service Crackle sells to Chicken Soup for the Soul

Crackle sells to Chicken Soup for the Soul. That’s not an early April Fool’s joke, but rather the news that Sony’s aging streaming service Crackle has now found a new home with Chicken Soup for the Soul Entertainment, or CSS Entertainment – the same company that today runs the streaming service Popcornflix and other streaming channels. (And yes, is also behind the well-known book series.) The news was first reported by Variety, and further detailed in a press release issued this morning. CSS Ent...

Apple Tries to Re-Invent Itself as a Service Company

Even Apple’s own advertising can’t make its new TV+ service seem interesting or innovative. After delays and failed/false starts in the past, today was the day Apple held a special launch event to announce various new subscription based streaming services.  Although in many ways, Apple was one of the first to offer streaming with its iTunes service, it has surprisingly but thoroughly dropped the ball, seeing new services come from nowhere to eclipse iTunes – in particular Netflix and Amazon Prim...

Peek into an empty Steve Jobs Theater before tomorrow’s big Apple event

What are you up to this afternoon? If your answer is anything “watching the livestream of an empty Steve Jobs Theater,” honestly, I’m not sure how you call yourself an Apple fan. A day before the company’s event in Cupertino, Apple’s streaming video of what looks to be an empty theater, bathed in darkness, with some swirling psychedelic designs playing on the big screen. The whole thing is almost certainly a bid to drum up more interest a day out, as fan scramble to figure out if someone acc...

Netflix releasing 'Street Food' show

When the first season of Chef’s Table debuted in 2015, it changed both food media and the way people consume food media. Director David Gelb’s slow-motion shots and lifting classical music simply took things to another level for fine-dining restaurants and chefs. Now, the same attention is coming to street food with a show called, in as straightforward a name as possible, Street Food. The show is produced by Gelb and his production company, Supper Club, and set to release on Netflix on April...

Today was the second half of Y Combinator’s two-day Demo Day for its Winter 2019 class. Over 85 startups pitched on stage yesterday, and another huge batch launched today.

Best US vintage trailer rentals

Before there was #vanlife, there was trailer life. In the 1950s and ‘60s, hitting the great highways and meandering backroads of the US with the family and a nicely outfitted trailer was the best way to see the country, and tons of great models emerged from that time period, including the now-iconic and coveted silver Airstreams. Nowadays, you’re more likely to see sleek modern RVs and boxy fold-out campers at campsites, but these charming relics of the USA’s great road-trip era are still flo...

Paris vs Malawi – Confronting Traveler’s Privilege

I am transfixed by the vignettes of life unfolding on the parched dirt road in front of our simple brick home. The reed fencing around the house frames a patch of Malawian road. Life is never hurried or particularly orderly here, but so compelling and textured in the harsh African sunlight. Groups of children proudly drag or roll toys made out of packing crates or discarded bicycle tires, shouting and waving when they see me, leaning back to stay in the frame as long as possible, even popping ba...

Elton John’s farewell tour marks the beginning for an audio augmenting wearable

It’s not a great time to be a live venue. Once the only game in town, clubs, arenas and other live event spaces now have to compete with the seemingly endless on-demand entertainment options. Competing with the convenience of 4K Netflix on a 50-inch screen is a big ask, even for the biggest stars. It’s a perfect market opening for a startups. A technology company that can sufficiently augment the live experience for a connected audience stands to make a lot of money outfitting venues and touring...

Best TV shows set in every state

Forget the airplane , the automobile, and the iPhone. The greatest American invention in history is hands down the television.

Over the 70-plus years TV has been around we’ve seen thousands of shows, set all kinds of places around our great land. We took a look through TV histo...
