Now if only somebody could do the instrumentation…
I miss your bars,
I miss your beers.
I miss the way you smell in the cold.
I miss the way you fall out of step.
If I had to say one thing,
I’d say them all,
all the people on the edges.
The fight to hold, to gather
with each other and remember
how lucky we are.
That we should sing,
that we need to break the sting
A Night In Suwon
After being overcome by a Texan’s rant about how we have to teach useful skills like how to make Koolade, I wrapped myself up and left the bar, “Big Chill”. Half way down the street, searching for my card to pay for a taxi, I realized I’d left it in the bar with the tab unpaid, so I returned intending to leave immediately.
Then I met an Irish man who shared my frustration about the Texan, and spared a few words of encouragement, then walked away; and now it’s 6a.m. and I’ve just finished some great big stew with an australian-accented Korean guy, who’d led us, a party of Americans to a restaurant but a short walk down from my workplace.
We left “Plan B” a while ago when it eventually closed. The amount of break dancing Koreans, Finns, one gravely Czech guy, and other assorted characters was quite astounding. How I managed to keep dancing and not once incur anger, discontent, or discord in my fellow comrades of this night is a mystery to me even now. I also managed to keep my sweatband on the entire time. The one with the blue stripe, white stripe, and red stripe on it.

The feel-good hormone dopamine improves long-term memory. This is the finding of a team lead by Emrah Düzel, neuroscientist at the German Center for Neurodegenerative Diseases (DZNE) and the University of Magdeburg. The researchers investigated test subjects ranging in age from 65 to 75 years, who were given a precursor of dopamine. Treated subjects performed better in a memory test than a comparison group, who had taken a placebo. The study provides new insights into the formation of long lasting memories and also has implications for understanding why memories fade more rapidly following the onset of Alzheimer’s disease. The results appear in the Journal of Neuroscience.
If you enjoy it, your body will tell you to remember it.
