All bits by Cousin Avi, a cynical ex-pat in Taichung, Taiwan who uses a Zippo lighter and hates it when the flint wears down to the point where the wheel is sticky.

If you spot something in violation of copyright, fair use or some other breach of common decency, please take the time to notify me and I will endeavour to respond in a timely and appropriate manner.

Comments are not unwelcome. There is a nifty box following each bit where you can pound til your finger’s content. I generally respond to comments in the thread.
Debate is welcome. Ad hominem attacks are permitted but carry risk. A certain degree of…oh what’s the word?…is appreciated.

Most of the pages are older articles written for a now defunct ex-pat magazine called 24/7. Others appeared in an alternative now dead effort – The Voice.
The posts are fresher, but I ain’t makin’ any promises about that either. Need more?…email cousinavi (at) gmail (dot) com.
Seek pleasure, avoid pain. In all things, give a little better than you get. Accidents happen. The really evil shit is intentional.
