The mitosis of science and music in YOONCELL

Minutes before her set, Jeong Yun-jung picks up her guitar and slings it to her body. She takes tiny steps to reach the middle of the platform, nervous to face her spectators for the day.

On the stage, she is YOONCELL.

TAEK imagines ‘We're Always Together’ into reality

TAEK’s artistry is nothing too flashy nor too bold, but the music latches on to its listeners because of its gentleness, remorseful yet romantic messages and subtle playful notes. The musician is often soft spoken and timid, but we discovered the secret to instantly make him smile—just tell him the words “Red Velvet” (yup, the girl group) and he warms up the whole room with his laugh. In an interview with Inquirer Super, TAEK and I talk about his first EP:

It usually just starts with one word or one sentence.

The rest of it comes from the feelings I get from those and I try to build the song around them. The sequencing, arrangements and final lyrics come later, but it all goes back to that keyword or key sentence. It’s all inspired by that, and in most cases, it also becomes the title.

Easter eggs, spoilers, and the top moments from ‘Black Panther’

It’s just one great film after another.

When Marvel Studios promised to bring their characters to life in the big screen, no one imagined it to be this grand and breathtaking. Its newest addition to its film roster, Black Panther, immerses its viewers in an action-filled tension, never failing to add slivers of humor and ultimately tell an empowering narrative.

Every scene is better than the last, immersing you into a curious and otherworldly heritage. Each second of the movie thrives with gripping intensity, forcing you to hold your breath in their every move. Here’s a rundown of everything that makes us say WAKANDA FOREVER:

My week in scraps

Stumbled upon Adam J. Kurtz’s 2010 project called My Week In Scraps and decided to try it for myself as I do keep a ton of trinkets (basically trash for other people) hidden in various paper bags and tin boxes.

The New York-based artist created weekly collages for four years, documenting different kinds of moments captured by small, pocketable pieces,  whether it’s exploring new cities or gaining new experiences and relationships.

It’s amazing how you can use these trivial things to reflect on what’s important to you—receipts showing what you spend on, tickets being a proof of the time you enjoyed wasting, and ultimately what you choose to keep.

Fun, funky, crazy and makes you wanna DNCE

If you ever plan to crash a DNCE band rehearsal, here’s a short list of what you need to bring: adult beverages, local snacks, and a game-for-anything attitude.

The funk-rock band reveals it’s always like a 10-year-old’s birthday party whenever they get together. And yes, that includes all the fun, noise, and maybe even some uncontrollable chaos, as any kid’s party goes.

“We’re just sitting around and there’s always snacks, soda, in front of us. We make fun of each other and then get around with playing a little bit of music,” bass guitarist Cole Whittle shares.

“But all our attention spans are short so we end up goofing around and leaving to go somewhere cool,” he adds.
