By Hans Ebert Often, it’s feeding evil more evil. It’s even creating new evil. Social media can be such a powerful medium for creating unity, but when the “sharing” degenerates into a regurgitation of the same news, it all becomes as vapid as every 24-hour showbiz “news” channel needing content to fill an entire day, [...]

By Hans Ebert Remember a short, chubby guy named Robbie Williams? Used to be with a boy band called Take That, then went solo, lost weight, got lotsa tatts, and became huge. And then he grew old and became even more huge. Which leads me to Harry Styles, formerly with OneDirection, and his first solo [...]

By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk It’s tough to absorb it all. It’s constantly being on overload and grappling to simplify things. And even if one were to get rid of the debris cluttering up our personal lives and too close to comfort, there are those outside forces that force themselves in and which manage to effect [...]

By Hans Ebert @hanseberthk “It’s time to get back, lads. Yesterday needs to happen again, because tomorrow never knows. We can’t just turn off our minds and float downstream.

By Hans Ebert He knew when he bought it that this was no ordinary Christmas tree. After all, what made a grown man who had never ever celebrated Christmas nor had even received a Christmas present from his parents- they thought it was a waste of time- decide to buy a Christmas tree in August? [...]

By Hans Ebert Depending on where you are in the world, today, October 9, would have been John Lennon’s 76th birthday. Actor Peter Sellers, also a Libran, was born on September 27. Both are men whose body of work, and who, through chance meetings and interviews, shaped my life- for better or worse. The journey [...]

By Hans Ebert It’s just not happening, is it? The more you leave Hong Kong and the more you get out there and meet and listen to bands and artists in places like Scandinavia, Melbourne, even in Singapore, one realises just what a music wasteland there is here- a so-called “scene” comprising the usual suspects [...]

By Hans Ebert We don’t know it, but we’re letting things get away from us. Like being stuck inside of Mobile with the Memphis Blues Again, we’re getting stuck in the trivialities served up and letting life’s priorities slide. We’re not looking out for Number One. We’re more concerned about what others are doing and [...]
