El Celso and C-Monster are on the road. Where they’re going, nobody knows. But they stopped at Ant Farm’s Cadillac Ranch long enough to throw some serious colour onto one of those old Caddies.
I miss Cadillac Ranch, ya’all are making me road-sick. Here’s the same car back in [...]
You know you’ve lived in a port town for too long when you’re more into the container ships in an illustration than the charming, sexy ladies. I digress… Electric Pick is a tattoo magician, and he’s been sharing some of his travel journals on his blog, The Electric Plog. Based on his travels [...]
I don’t have any way of proving this, but this super ominous, super awesome painting has a “shot for a trade paperback” vibe to it. Definitely a lot of 1970′s cover art flavour going on, regardless. Are those Sardaukar there? Found in the basement of an antique mall in Astoria, Oregon, I was [...]
I love octopus. I don’t just love them when they’re smuggling coconuts or wrestling with gachapon, they’re one of my favourite foods. I’ve been trying to arrange a sannakji dinner in LA for what seems like years now, ever since I found out about the delicious, still moving, still kind-of-alive octopus dish. Sojung made [...]
Ahh, late night drinking. One evening, while in Seoul, following a delicious meal of rice noodle ramen, I was lured out for soju at an izakaya. That’s an iced platter of oysters and sea squirts up there. The oysters weren’t as fresh as they could have been, so we kind of skipped out [...]
In which I consume a delicious surprise, a hot dog shaped mochi on a stick, wrapped in odeng and covered with a sweet, hot, sticky sauce. This combined the awesome chewiness of mochi with delicious notes of fish, sweet and chili.
This is kind of a waste of a cup, but it [...]
On my last full day in Seoul (don’t worry, more food coming, as we’re moving backwards and forwards in time here), we stopped into a Chinese noodle place in Bukchon after a meeting. I think Sojung had a heavy-duty hankering for jajangmyeon.
Jajangmyeon consists of white noodles served with a black soybean paste, [...]
Torrance-based Flickerite and global traveler Brandon Shigeta is in Asia at the moment and has the most beautiful set up, Mobile Vendors, which I believe was taken entirely in Thailand. He’s shooting with a 5D MkII, so the quality, colours and everything else is just [...]
Things turn up in the strangest places. Possibly the most “Western museum-like” space I visited in Seoul was the Artsonje Center in Bukchon. Three stories of museum, complete with store (with mystery connecting elevator to basement Indian restaurant), with an entry price of $3 or $1.50 for students.
I actually like some [...]
Details, where god is…
I don’t recall this being in all Seoul taxis, but one driver had a little LCD display on his in-dash meter that displayed a graphic of a still and running horse, whose gait changed relative to the taxi’s speed. The above video is badly shot and slightly poor in quality, [...]
