Watched a documentary on Taiwanese gangs last weekend: 黑白邊緣:台灣幫派浮沈錄 (2011) (on YouTube: 1, 2, 3).

Discovered a couple websites in the last month that I forgot to put here:

  • TRS Tour 臺灣驛站之旅, a site documenting the Taiwanese rail system
  • Maps Talk 地圖會說話, a blog by Ko-Hua Yap 葉高華 on Taiwanese maps

Looked through some American traditionalist architecture firms, all associated with the New Urban Guild:

Also looked at some international firms:

Recent reading: the interview with Studio Mumbai in El Croquis 157 (2011), an interview with Robert Pattinson in GQ (June/July 2020), the first few chapters of Hong lou meng.

Two books arrived today: Capitalist Realism (2009) by Mark Fisher and Botany in a Day, 6th edition (2013) by Thomas J. Elpel. Read a good amount of both.
