A DJ friend mentioned in passing about 3 weeks ago that Marco Bailey would come to Taiwan, but at some club in Kaohsiung. The last time that I saw him was in Montreal, a couple of years ago.

I had bought my tickets the week before, but had been planning to go to this concert for weeks, as soon as I heard that Metronomy was coming to Taipei.

I listened to some of their earlier stuff, but We Broke Free, The Look, and Corinne were listened to countless times and made it into my five-star playlist on my main computer.

Ways of Letting Go of Your Electronic Leashes

082211_rg_ElectronicLeashes_01.jpgDepending on what kind of a job you have, you might need to consult your phone and/or email quite often but most people don’t need to do this. Many people use their emails, texts, phone calls, and status updates to keep track of what’s going on in their friend circles. But what can you do when it becomes compulsive and you just can’t help yourself from checking up using your mobile device all of the time? That’s when your device becomes an electronic leash and it can be hard to let go of it.
