Shopping online: A checklist on how to discern which shops are legit

We know that a lot of people, especially the baby boomers (or older) like my parents are technologically-challenged. Many of us millennials and Gen-Xers laugh at them and probably become impatient with them when it comes to technology. However, there’s this term I would like to coin that deals with people, not just baby boomers and older, but millennials as well. I like to call … Continue reading Shopping online: A checklist on how to discern which shops are legit

Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1/LP: No Past. No Future. No Sun.: Nostalgia potency at purest

Hello, my fellow (The) Smashing Pumpkins fans! I’m sorry for this late album review. To be honest, I was flaky about writing it.

Reminiscent of their early-mid years, the album won’t disappoint fans with this fated Billy Corgan, James Iha, and Jimmy … Continue reading Shiny and Oh So Bright, Vol. 1/LP: No Past. No Future.

That’s farfetched from all the EDM tunes and even the synth-pop, electronic/soul haze, and folk-pop music that are currently dominating pop music. This trend makes me deviate from what usual … Continue reading Thank U, Ari. Looking forward to your next!
