特に今回のポスト(日記?)は、始まりもなく、終わりもないように感じます。文章もある意味で川みたいに、「水源」がたくさんで、全てを探り出すのが不可能な作業だと思います。

This post, especially, feels like it has no beginning and no end. Texts are a little like rivers, with so many sources. And it’s impossible to find them all.

数日前、ある友達が子供のころによく聞いていたSPEEDのWhite Loveの初言葉である、「はてしない」の意味を私に尋ねました。「はてしないってどういう意味なのか」という単純な質問でしたが、当時には「”Endless” or “infinite”, something like that」というふう簡単に答えたように覚えています。そして話しが(話しがするように)自然に次へとつづきました。

Several days ago, a friend asked me about the meaning of the word “hateshinai“, the first word in the […]

I got introduced to the music of the Nell more than a year ago by my good friend Minsook, on a road trip here in California. And you know how those songs that you hear on road trips have a way of staying with you in ways that others might not? That, added […]

I thought it only fitting that I write a few words on FIT about Michael. He meant so much to me, my family, African American people, American people and culture, and the world. I’ve decided not to talk so much from a place of pain as an emotion but rather in terms of it as […]

Back in the 90s, before Facebook and MySpace and Twitter, when social networks consisted of sites like Geocities and you spoke to your friends on IRC, putting a page online actually required some coding know-how. You basically started with a […]

So “Janet Jackson”, a UC Berkeley graduate student, three other graduate students, and I had just wrapped up our presentations at the Expanding Literacy Studies International, Interdisciplinary Conference for Graduate Students at “the” Ohio State University in Columbus. It was a glorious day, bright and sunny, and we were thrilled that we were all […]

Of course since we have many international readers I’m half expecting a few people to say “I didn’t!” (or maybe you did? I’m curious). Well, from my own experiences growing up, the link between music and language was strong. From more→

In an earlier post, Usree linked a youtube video comparing Coldplay’s “Viva La Vida” to Joe Satriani’s “If I Could Fly.”  A background in music theory/composition will tell you that the majority of modern, mainstream music is based off a few pretty common chord progressions (copying the melody and tempo, however, is a completely […]

Found in Translation: a Digital Story

 

After going to last week’s BLC panel on Digital Storytelling, I was inspired to make a video on Found in Translation for Rick Kern’s “Writing and Technology” course.
