PauseTalk is a regular series of events that takes place at Cafe Pause in Tokyo (2-14-12-1F Minami-Ikebukuro, 03-5950-6117) usually on the first Monday of every month, with a start time of 20:00. The idea is to create a forum where Tokyo-based creatives (or anyone passing through) can get together and discuss their own projects, as well as cultural currents of the city. The next edition will be held on April 28.

PauseTalk Vol. 78 on April 28

So yes, PauseTalk is back on its domain now.

I’m still unsure if I’ll be able to incorporate the old posts (which would be a shame, since that includes all of the participants lists), but I’ll see what I can do when I have more time to devote to the issue (in short, my previous ISP suddenly shutdown, and I was not alerted).

I do want to make sure that everyone knows that the next PauseTalk is just a week away, set for Monday, April 28 at Cafe Pause. It’s not on the first Monday of the month, since the first week of May is the Golden Week holiday, and I wanted to avoid having an event during that time (since many people are away). Also, since I had to skip the regular April edition, I think it acts as a good bridge. 

The next PauseTalk after that (Vol. 79) should be back at its regular slot of the first Monday of June (on the 2nd).
