TESLA what? TESLA who?


A former student named Kyle offered to give me a test drive of a TESLA sudan. I don't have an international driver's license and my friends (Charlie, Tina, and Chalice) who tagged along don't have licenses either so we were automatically passengers.  The moment was fun and and very insightful. I really appreciate the time Kyle took out to show and educate us about TESLA. 

When we first arrived at the store, we were given a lengthy demonstration of a floor-model SUV. My friend Charlie was very inquisitive and kept Kyle busy while my amigas and I tuned into their conversation and occasionally chimed in. I'm rather impressed with the conversation that transpired. I am an amateur to the auto industry (but a quick learner to maintaining my point-A-to-point-B machine), so having Charlie along was a great opportunity to learn even more about TESLA.

The next part of our visit is what you see in the video. Kyle took all of us out on a mini excursion that made us laugh, scream, and catalyzed our own inquisitions of the auto industry.

Music: I recently met a guy from Seattle who enjoys DJing in ShenZhen as Mefaun Rice. I enjoy some of his mixes and I added one of them as a soundtrack to my recorded experience.

Bike Sharing: Mobike

A couple of months ago I was considering buying a new city bike since my previous bike got stolen. I was craving nice bike rides to occupy my sunny weekends; the city issued cycles seemed too tax to register for and the bike stands demand a cash deposit along with a return trip. I asked around my WeChat groups for any suggestions and this guy suggested Mobike. At the time of his suggestion, I hadn't seen a single bike in my area. I registered anyway and discovered through the app's GPS that there were a few bikes a block or two away from my apartment. However, about a week or two later, I saw rows of bikes along streets and it was gorgeous!
Soon after, I saw competitors like Ofo, BlueGoGo and another bike-share company that's all in Chinese. I tried to register for the others because Mobike was too in-demand and becoming less visible. It didn't work out too well; Ofo and BlueGoGo offer English but failed to approve my registration three times. In addition, my coworker …

Songstress Takes Flight With New Record

After reviewing Flight of the Donn T and being impressed with Donn Thompson Morelli’s sophomore album, Pop-Break was able to get a moment out of the Donn’s packed schedule for a scoop on her latest journey. Flight of the Donn T was released on April 21, 2015 following somewhat of a five-year hiatus from Donn’s last album, Kaleidoscopic. While fans were waiting for more from Donn T and could only nibble on her EP Gramophonica, the songstress had a voyage filled with discovery, new love, and maneuvering around a slight hurdle she needed to overcome in order to deliver her music safe and soundly to the world. “Kaleidoscopic was recorded and mastered in a week. The day before I made Kaleidoscopic, I didn’t know I was making it,” says Donn T. The album (which was her debut record) was composed with the UK-based French producer DJ Simbad and an international hit as it drew from London electronica and Chicago house while stained with Philly-like flare. While opening for Marsha Ambrosius a fe…
