  1. Yeah, I think Bae Yong Joon has had some work done on his face. It's starting to make him look weird.

  2. It's not a terribly content-heavy comment, but wanted to say I like how you quickly summarize the story and then put the link in the source in parentheses. I've been trying to figure out a classy/unobtrusive way myself to provide links that I don't have time to blog or analyze fully but nevertheless think it important to share. Hopefully you don't mind if I start borrowing your method?

  3. Edward, I'm more concerned about the weird hairstyle. But then again, while in Hawaii, my clean-cut style has turned all long-haired surfer type.

  4. Adam, thanks for the compliment. Feel free to copy The Kushibo Method™. I used to work in broadcast news, so it's a style I developed. I try to be concise but informative, while providing an avenue for more information.
