October’s PauseTalk (Vol. 74) was a great one, with a very fine group indeed, and a good mix of discussion and topics. Below is the list of participants (those who signed the attendance sheet). Please note that due to a high dose of PechaKucha activity during Tokyo Design Week, I’ll be skipping November, and so PauseTalk Vol. 75 will be held on December 2.
Yes, PauseTalk Vol. 74 is happening tonight, and that made me realize that I hadn’t shared the list of participants from last month’s edition (Vol. 73). Below is the list of those who attended (or rather, who signed the attendance sheet).
Join us on Monday, October 7 for PauseTalk Vol. 74, at its usual home of Cafe Pause in Ikebukuro. Due to Tokyo Design Week craziness, there might not be a PauseTalk next month, so come, come, come! Here’s the Facebook event page.
Big thanks to everyone who made it out to this week’s Vol. 72! Below is the list of participants — those who filled in the attendance sheet — and please note that PauseTalk takes a break in August, and so Vol. 73 will take place on September 2.
Tonight is PauseTalk Vol. 72, which means I’m getting the participants list from last month’s Vol. 71 up on the site just in time. Below, the list of those who attended (or at least, signed the attendance sheet).
PauseTalk Vol. 71 is taking place tonight (Monday, June 3, Facebook event page), but here’s a look at those who attended last month’s Vol. 70 (those who signed the attendance sheet). Here’s also a Facebook gallery of photos taken at Vol. 70, by Michael Holmes.
Big, big thanks to everyone who came out for the big Vol. 69 — it was the largest turnout in quite a while, which meant having to add an extra row of chairs around the table. As I had mentioned, it was my final night as a resident of Ikebukuro, and it made for a fantastic sendoff. The photo above is of course by Michael Holmes, and you’ll find a Facebook gallery here.
Below, the list of those who attended (or at least those who signed the attendance sheet). PauseTalk Vol. 70 will take place on May 6, and yes, it’s still at Cafe Pause!
Yet again, this list comes out a bit late, but it will also be accompanied by a bit of news. First, I’d like to thank everyone who made it out to this month’s Vol. 68 — lots was discussed, including Tohoku (considering the 2nd anniversary of the earthquake/tsunami). Everyone’s favorite photographer, Michael Holmes, was in attendance, and he’s posted a great Facebook gallery of the shots he took.
The next PauseTalk — the oh so sexy Vol. 69 — is just around the corner, and no joke, it’s on April 1. This will also mark a very special occasion, as it will be the last PauseTalk that I host as a resident of Ikebukuro — I will be moving the very next day. Don’t worry, PauseTalk will continue at Cafe Pause for the foreseeable future, but this will be my final night in this area of the city I’ve called home for my entire life in Japan.
Below, a list of those who attended Vol. 68.
As happens every once in a while, we ended up being a rather tiny group for this month’s Vol. 67, but what makes for a slightly awkward start usually ends up producing a more intimate discussion, with everyone more actively participating, which is something I enjoy. So thank you everyone who made it out, I think a good time was had by all.
The photo above was taken by Shiho, and pictured from left are Said, me, and Sam. Below, the list of participants. PauseTalk Vol. 68 will take place on March 4.
A big thanks to everyone who made it out for not only the last PauseTalk of the year (Vol. 66), but also the last edition for the next couple of months, since I always skip January. We had a great group, a fun time, and that fun continued with a few of us at a nearby bar aftewards. It was a very fine way to end 2012, and sets us up nicely for 2013.
Below, the list of those who signed the attendance sheet. As mentioned, there will be no PauseTalk in January, and so Vol. 67 will be held on February 4.
