My Favorite Things. Bookmarks, articles, musics, and other frivolous details.

I've always loved art and media. I've always devoured music. I've always been delusional enough to think that anyone cares.

.

This is my way of finding my tribe. This is me sending an S.O.S. over the airwaves, hoping to hear something back, from someone just like me.

I love recommendations. Don't be shy.

Learn a lot about seemingly random -- but not trivial -- topics. I'm a big fan of Colin Wrights. He's a perfect teacher for two reasons: He's incredibly smart. He can explain complex topics in a way that anyone can digest.
