yeah, well of course you don't need to. i was arguing with someone on here who was saying in deskwarming time, you should be lesson planning. my point was that you don't NEED to overplan most of the time. it's pointless. then that person said "you could always make your powerpoints nicer" and i said "i don't use ppts much" and the conversation went on like this. it was dumb.

just because you spent 2 hours making a lesson with all the bells and whistles, it doesn't mean it'll be more effective than the lesson i spent 2 minutes planning on a napkin

Yea, agreed.  That argument was in my mind as well when I was chatting to my friend.

My experience: my wife and son always use the blue toothbrush.

I try to use an oddball colour to minimize this.

Exit was great. And then the Hongdae Magpie there was also great. And now both are gone. Such sadness.

Absolutely agree. Tom's Pizza is great, but without Magpie there, I see very little point in going.

i always get users with similar names mixed up on this site. in most cases it's fine, ex. kyndo, kayos (i forget who is the mod, doesn't really matter). Other times it's a problem, ex. LIC and L I. I had this feeling that I like one of them more (but I couldn't remember which). But, as it turns out, if I'm ever reading either of their posts, I'm convinced it's the other one.

or perhaps a mr.demartoni or ms.demartine, or taylortheboob or tylortheloob. yet, none of those are as similar as L I and LIC... who came first? who copied who? do they ever interact? so many questions..

That's the problem, as a non-Seoul person, I have no idea about these places.   :sad:

Going alone to watch this kind of techno is a little sad for me.  If it were drum and bass, it'd be fine as I could just dance.  But these kinds of beats are not so conducive for dancing.   :sad:

Cakeshop is def the deepest EDM cuts in the city. They play some deep shit. This ain't dancey per se, in the mainstream way of that word.

Yeah. I've been to Hongdae maybe once since Magpie closed.

I don't do the mainstream stuff, but I can do both as in, I love the standing and staring clicky techno as well as the dancey stuff.  It was my older brother who alerted me to this night, saying he'd definitely go to it, if he didn't live in Berlin.  :sad:  We used to go to loads of these kind of techno nights together, drink beer, 'mess around' and watch the guys doing the electronic twisty knob things.  Good times.  A lot does depend on the sound system for techno.  We saw Autechre in Manchester, and the room shape was crap and it was too bassy.  Ruins stuff like this..

Slightly biased because I can't stand the guy (or his parents lol) but that was a pretty stupid thing to do.
